Target Complaint - Check Policy
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I went to Target at Fry Rd. and I-10 to purchase a 32' TV for my husband today. I am a longtime customer (have spent thousands of dollars at this store in the past 15 yrs) and have a Target credit card also. To pay for this purchase I wanted to put half on my Target card and write a check for the remainder. This was not a problem however, I have recently (Jan '10) gone back to work and now have my own checking account for extras and wrote the remainder of the balance on MY account opposed to my household account, $300. My check was rejected. I have over $1,000 in that account. I was given the check back and told I could call the 800 number on the back. I did. I was told my check was rejected because I had never written a check to target from this account before. WHAT??? Why does that matter? I was told to go and write a few checks for $10 or $12 and come back in a few weeks and try again to buy the TV! I have never in my life heard of such a policy. I will NOT be shopping at ANY Target store in the future.
