I purchased a Dirt Devil vacuum at a local Target store on 02.28.08.
This vacuum, although it works well, breaks belts about once a week. I have had other vacuums over the past 30 years that I or my wife have used in exactly the same way and with the same frequency, and we have never had this problem.
When it broke its most recent belt the other day, I decided to return it. What I would like is another vacuum, or to be reimbursed for the cost of the vacuum I bought only 3.5 months ago, which is nearly useless.
Unfortunately, Target has refused to allow me to return or exchange it, because we are 2 weeks past the 90 day limit on their receipt.
This is a mistake on Target's part, because I will never buy anything that costs more than a few dollars from Target again, I will avoid shopping at Target whenever possible, and I will also make sure my friends are aware of the inflexibility of Target's return policy. Target's policy of never making an exception is counterproductive and unsupportable. Other major retail chains are willing to extend themselves on occasion to retain the loyalty of their customers, in consideration of past business and in the interest of potential future business.
I am very disappointed in Target's refusal to do so, and will definitely adjust my buying habits accordingly.
I went to the Target store under the pretense of a *good deal on some hair products that my girlfriend had given raves about. I was elated to find that the Chi was on sale for the magnificent price of nearly 50% off (according to the advertisement listed above), upon checkout it rung up at an astronomical price of $149.99. I called an associate over and they insisted that the price was true. I kindly showed them the area where it stated otherwise according to their label, and they remained adamant that it was not their fault. I proclaimed their false advertisement to the Snr sales mgr and the store manager who were blatantly rude and disregarded the sign that they clearly posted. They were callous and rude in their endeavors to prove a point, and I will never shop there again. I dare say that the two were probably involved in an affair of sorts as they were intent on claiming the same statement.
I worked at Target from March until July of this year. They treat their employees like slave trade.
The logistics team is forced to work in semi-darkness, an impossible task when being expected to sort and classify merchandise.
The air conditioning is not turned on to appropriate levels until minutes before opening. The workers are worked, "faster, faster", while being denied appropriate access to water, and bathroom breaks.
Personal information about employees is shared at team "huddles", and workers are repeatedly told that they are not indispensable.
The press states that Walmart has a poor record as an employer, it would be wise to open an eye towards the "hip, socially forward, discounter".
In the past couple of years, I've been invited to a few weddings that I have not been able to attend due...

Target is a French company. They hate the American military.
Asked for a small donation disabled war veterans they said" they only donate to *** groups"
They stop all benefits, health and etc for any employee that is in the reserve or national guard that is called to duty.
As you know the French do not like Americans, but will take their money.
If you do not believe this, go to a target store and ask for a donation, or if you can collect money outside the store for some military organization.
When they say no, ask for the phone number or e-mail address of the main office. Call or e-mail and see what their response is.
My daughter received a gift (dress) from Target and it was too big for her. We went to Target in Woodbury, MN...
My son bought a portable baby swing at Target that didn't work. I said I would take it back for him since he was flying out of town the next day. When he bought it, he tore off the bottom of the receipt that had the gift receipt attached to it and threw it away at the store before leaving. About 36 hours later I brought the Original Receipt and the Defective Swing for a refund. They informed me the item had already been refunded the day before. They could not see the impossibility of that statement. Upon checking, the gift receipt from the garbage was used for the refund. They refused to do anything for me. Now I have a defective product that I can not even give to charity and they seem to have a employee scam going on, since the refund could not have involved the product since I still have the worthless product. I reported this scam to the corporate office and they said the money has been refunded and there is nothing they can do. How about honor their return policy and treat ME like the honest citizen instead of the criminal? I am going to make sure everyone knows what a risk they are taking when shopping at this store!
I purchased the Target brand continious spray spf 30. The bottle states on the front that its "rub free" well...
My wife and received a Boppy seat from our baby gift registry. We assembled the product and found it was defective and then tried to exchange the seat. When we presented the seat to the employee and explained we had no receipt, we were told they would NOT exchange the seat, for the EXACT SAME product, without a receipt because the product was valued at over $20.00. The TARGET product was defective, a gift from a registry, and we wanted to exchange for the same thing. Too bad, so sad, it's a Target product but with no receipt they wouldn't exchange it, even when it's broken. Target's return policy is pathetic and is a real deterrent to customers.
I'm going to say right away that I have never complained about a retailer before. I work for Walgreen...
I went to the Target in Lufkin, Texas today to return a set of dishes that were broken in the box. A couple of coffee glasses had broken handles. Because they were a gift and we did not have the receipt, we were told they could not exchange them. The box clearly states Target on it!! This is terrible. The manager told me I would have to buy some super glue!!! This is crazy!!
Target is selling pillows with packaging that states "bamboo/cotton blend covered pillow 60% bamboo/40% cotton 300 thread count cover" The label on the actual pillow states 60% rayon 40% cotton 100% polyester. Target claims it is aware of this fact and that rayon is the same thing as bamboo and that rayon is processed from bamboo. This is false. The consumer is being decieved if he believes that this is a bamboo product. Rayon is not a fabric made from bamboo. Target is simply cheating the consumer by not stating the fact that this is a rayon/cotton blend. The package the pillow is in has very large letters BAMBOO. No company should be able to knowingly deceive the consumer. I did notify Target but they are relying on the false claim that the rayon pillow is a bamboo pillow.
I had taken loan from ICICI Bank last year. Nizam - [protected](sales guy) had come to my office to collect the documents. At that time I forced him to explain about how is the rate of interest calculated. He said he dosnt have any idea, he just looks into an excell sheet and tells the ROI to the customer. He gave me acknowledge form saying the ROI is 14%. Loan got approved, I got the money into my account(Deutsche Bank), everything went fine that time. I was in need to money that time so did'nt bother to corss verify anything. After 1year I wanted to change the ECS from Deutsche Bank to ICICI Bank, for which I went to ICICI Bank, MG Road, Bangalore(Near Bangalore Central). Just by chance I asked for my loan statement and for my surprise I came to know that I was paying 18% interest for my personal loan. Same office I met Reshma(080-[protected]) regarding ROI conflict issue. I gave her all the details about my loan. I showed her the acknowledgment paper given by Nizam, where it was mentioned 14% as ROI. I also showed her the load statement where it was mentioned 18%. She said wait for few days Nizam will call you. I waited but no call, then got a chance to speak to Nizam's Manager/Supervisor Suresh. Both Suresh and Nizam are in Cox Town, Bangalore office. He claims that its a mistake of the tele girl who has left the job and its 1year over we cant do anything. Am still waiting for my issue to be resolved but both Suresh and Nizam are not at all serious, as if its a joke for them. For these I guess such cases are common and they dont take anything serious or at least look into these issues as a highest priority.
I would suggest everybody for not taking a personal loan without verifying all the details...
I was registered with Target Baby. We purchased a Diaper Champ from the local Target from our baby registry because we wanted the nursery finished. When we set it up (a few days later) we discovered the Diaper Champ was cracked. We could not find the receipt but the item was listed as purchased from our Baby Registry. My husband attempted to return the item for an exchange for a Diaper Champ that was not broken and was told he could not even though the item was clearly purchased from Target (from the registry) within the last 30 days. In addition, the guest services staff told hikm there was no manager to speak with to help him. We will never shop at Target again and I warn everyone to not register with a company that has such poor customer service.
As a long time fan of Target, I am absolutely disappointed about their new “return” policy. I couldn’t wait for the day to get married, and with regards to this letter, couldn’t wait to open a Target wedding registry of my own! Only to find out Target has become completely entrusting of their customers and treat us as if we’re thieves! We sent our wedding guests almost exclusively to our target registry, which malfunctioned, and now we have duplicate sets of gifts that we cannot return.
When we attempted to return them, and showed how the gift registry malfunctioned, they insisted that it was our guests’ responsibility to attach a gift receipt & accepted no fault. Of course, since our guests were purchasing from a wedding registry they trusted, none of the guests attached a receipt. Not to mention it looks pretty tacky to tape on a receipt to an expensive, nicely wrapped gift. So the manager suggested we go back to our guests and ask for a receipt so that we can return their gift. We felt that would be very rude to do to our guests, and just do not feel comfortable disappointing people like that, especially after they spent so much money on a gift they thought we would love. The manager also told us “that’s the point of a registry, to get what you want” – Of course! But that doesn’t mean we need two croquet sets, two coffee makers or two wine racks! We felt we were being very reasonable, we didn’t even want cash back; we would gladly accept store credit.
To top things off, I received a wok in the mail that became damaged during shipment. It came wrapped in target paper, included target shipping paperwork, and all we wanted was to exchange it for a non-damaged wok or receive store credit. They still proceeded to tell us that we needed a gift receipt, and refused to return it for us until we talked to upper management. The whole process took over 30 minutes!
We have received over $1000 in gifts from our Target registry, and if we would have known about this absurd return policy, we would have stayed with Bed Bath & Beyond and Macy’s, both of which have no problem with satisfying their registry customers. I do wedding photography for a living and talk with brides on a daily basis, I’m warning everyone to stay clear of Target’s wedding registry. I hope Target realizes quick what they are doing to some of their biggest fans.
We placed an order on Target.com only to find out later that when we placed the order the items 7 of the 9 were on back order. The estimated deliver date was changed as soon as I submitted my order and has been changed three times since. When you call Target.com; they claim that there is no way to lodge a complaint which.

I will preface this by saying I have never had a problem at Target before, however, this one takes the cake. On Jan. 14 we purchased a comforter set at full price. 2 or 3 days later the item goes to clearance. Today I go into the store with my receipt and am told they won't give me an overcharge because the item is clearance and not a sale item. The clerk told me if I brought the item back to the store in the packaging she could do a refund and I could buy it back at the clearance price. (This wouldn't be necessary if the item were just on sale.) I have been a good customer of this store spending approximately $400.00 to $500.00 there each week between groceries and other items. However, after having to be recited a policy by no less than three levels of employees...who had no care in the world other than to recite a questionable policy, I walked out. No wonder same store sales are off...
Be careful if you create a registry with Target. We received gifts from Target.com that did not come with receipts or even a packing slip for 2 of the gifts. It was such a hassle, but luckily the Target employees in Palmdale CA were so hopeful. They had to call 800 numbers and wait for at least 20 minutes multiple times, and they had a hard time getting anyone at Target.com to help with the returns.
I tried to return a gift the turned out to be broken after we had thrown everything away-including the gift receipt (I did not think I needed it). I was not allowed to exchange the item because it was over $20.00 and I did not have a receipt, even though you could see it was purchased from my registry. I understand that Target gets taken advantage from with returns, but when something is purchased off a registry that should not be a problem.
