Watch What You Buy at Target -- Return Policy : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Just received Target's Return Policy in bag today while shopping.

"Target Return Policy -- If you are not fully satisfied with your Target purchase, return it with the original sales receipt within 90 days. We will exchange it, repair it, or offer you a refund based on your method of payment. """Purchases made by check may be refunded as a merchandise voucher."""

It may be necessary to ask for identification during any transaction."

Unless I'm missing something, Target has always refunded w/cash and you did not receive merchandise vouchers for check transactions.

Say Hello to just another way of getting screwed!

I don't blame them for this policy.

Too many customers write bad checks and return the merchandise for a cash refund before the check is found to be bogus.

When I used to work for Target, years and years ago, the policy was refund credit to the credit card, cash to cash up to a limit (I think around $100, check through the mail thereafter), and check to check (delivered through the mail in a couple weeks). To be honest, I don't really remember ever doing a merchandise voucher, although I must have...

If I don't like a stores refund/purchase policy, I don't shop there.

Nope, Target has been doing this merchandise voucher for a check thing for a while. If you have a canceled check from your bank, proving it already went through, you can probably get cash. Otherwise, it is a merchandise voucher. They have pissed us off on this more than once. I rarely ever shop there anymore, but I do like their selection. When I do buy something there, I make sure that it is the right item/color/size/whatever.
