My Crusade Against Target

Recommended Posts

Princess

Target is one of my favorite stores, I shop there all the time. Or at least, I did until last night. 2 weeks ago I bought a new swimsuit for my trip to Great Wolf Lodge and they weren't on sale. Now Target has a policy that if someting goes on sale within the next 14 days then you can get a price adjustment. So I didn't have time during the week to go and get the price adjustment because of work and other appointments so I went last night since that's when the sale ended. I go up to the service desk and ask for a price adjustment and the employee tells me that she can't give me a price adjustment because my receipt is 16 days old! So I storm out of the store and get out to my car and decide that I want to talk to the manager in charge, so back into the store I go. I've worked in retail, I know that managers can override things. He tells me that there's nothing that I can do, however receipts are good for 90 days for returns so I could of course return it and let it get processed and make it back out to the floor and then buy it again for the sale price. Like I'm gonna do that to a swimsuit that I've worn repeatedly and washed a couple of times and no longer has the tags or hygenic liner in it. I know their return policy and they'd never take it back that way. :roll:

So now, I shall boycott Target and I encourage you to do the same.

Well common sense would say "It went on sale within the 14 day time period and is still on sale so the adjustment should be given" but I guess that "The customer is always right" just doesn't happen anymore

"The customer is always right" is just something that annoying customers say when they don't get what they want. :p

No, that's how it used to be when customer service meant something

But usually the customer is wrong anyway. :p

Yeah, that's the first thing they teach you at jobs during orientation - the customer is most of the time, wrong. Stores like Wal-Mart and Target list their return policies in the customer service area, so they are not really the one's at fault here.

I'm upset because the manager did nothing to try to help me. I mean he could have even returned it and resold it to me right there at the service desk just using the numbers on the receipt. But he wanted nothing to do with making the customer happy.

Well, a 14-day breathing period for the customer to reflect upon their purchase is more than gratious on the part of the seller.

lol, why's everybody being so antagonistic. Y'all know if it was you, you'd be just as pissed.

It's like when I was at Krogers the other day and asked someone in the dairy dept. if I could have some boxes. "Uh, I dunno, you'll have to go to customer service." Yeah, like customer service has tons of boxes... So I ask the very next person I see and she says "Sure!" and proceeds to hand me about 6 big egg boxes. Took her about 30 seconds to do.

Sure, I'm certain it's not in the job description to fetch boxes, but a little curteousy never hurt anyone. When I'm at work, I'll fetch linens and water and whatever else for people. I don't have time, really, but what does another minute or two do to really set me back?

lol yeah, we occasionally get people coming in asking for boxes. It saves space in our bins so we always get them if we have time, lol.

An apparently, according to a removals bloke, Mac Fries boxes are the perfect size for packing things to move house. hehe

No, I wouldn't.. because if I was over the 14 day limit.. I wouldn't even bother.

Meh, I don't shop at Target much anyway.

Was there any limitation/end to that bargain?

IE...was or is there a final date for that...?
