Target Complaint - Target/Target.com
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -- As I warned - I am your worst consumer nightmare. The following communication
is going out to several consumer groups and web sights. You had your chance.
On 6/22/09 I visited the Menominee Falls, WI Target to buy an item (for $111.98) from my daughter’s Baby Registry. When I couldn’t get anyone to help I noticed the printed registry said the product was available “also online”
I went home and ordered. The web page said if you ordered $50.00 worth of
merchandise shipping is free.
When I got an acknowledgment the charge was $204.02, including the item at
$159.99, tax, and Shipping $33.21.
I immediately called customer service. They said the price online is different, and refused to cancel the order.
I talked to several people there, and made numerous email contacts. They were
insistent and would give me no help on the price or cancellation. They told me
it was MY responsibility to ship the product back.
Target.com is obviously running a scam with false advertising claims to make you
pay more. There is no notice that in store prices are different…Target is
Target for pete’s sake.
Save yourself some aggravation by avoiding Target altogether.
