Well Target has been so good to me over the past few weeks that was until today!
I thought I would have the nicest cashier until it turned ugly quick.
Now mind you I keep my cool the whole time, I was not rude, never raised my voice.
I had brought up 2 outdoor sprays because back in the back all the outdoor items were 75% off. Signs were everywhere and everything was marked at 75% except these 2 sprays. I asked her about them because they were still marked at 50% and I wanted to know if they would give them to me at 75%. She rudely told me that she could not and that if they are not marked they can’t change anything that I would have to come back next week when they are marked.
I told her I was sorry I just thought it was maybe a mistake everything is 75% off back there and these 2 little things weren’t which totally didn’t make sense to me!
Anyways after that fiasco was over she rang up my items & I handed over coupons.
I knew from that minute it wouldn’t be a nice check out when she proceeded to pull everything out of my bag and inspect it.
My first coupon was for my tank top. They are on sale this week at $6 and with the $5 target printable it made them $1. She pulled it out of the bag, inspected the tag, inspected the price, scanned the coupon & it went through.
Next was the OFF! outdoor fogger spray that is 75% off at $1.88. I had a $3 coupon that was off 2 products. She took the spray out of the bag read every word on it, went to the screen to see how much they ran up, then she turned on her light and called for a supervisor. I asked her what the problem was and she said that my coupon was more then the product. I proceeded to tell her that it was off 2 products and $1.88+$1.88 equals more then $3. Supervisor came over grabbed all my coupons, sat there and read everything on them & then called the manager. She asked if they could adjust coupons down still or did that rule change. Nope they are still able to adjust down. I then had to explain again the coupon was off 2 items not 1 and after some realization they realized it was over the coupon amount.
Then onto the cascade where they weren’t to happy taking them on the trial size, but adjusted my coupon down. Then the neutrogena coupons went through just fine.
Now I am all for them checking to make sure I am not trying to pull a fast one on them. But the attitude I received because I was using coupons I felt was unacceptable. They told me like 3 times they are cracking down hard and have to inspect every single thing, that they are not allowed to make any changes without a supervisors permission and that they wouldn’t allow couponers to do this. Instead of nicely explain to me why they are doing things they mumbled, they gave me snotty looks, talked to me like I was a criminal, and were just plan rude! To me I felt they were pretty much profiling me because I was armed with coupons. We are people just trying to save money, we should not be treated any other way because we are using them. I just honestly hate how inconsistent Target is because I was just in there yesterday & used coupons without a problem. I will be calling Target Corp in the morning just to put in a complaint. I love Target but seriously 30-45min at the check out isn’t my forte!
