Target Ripping Off Couponers!

If you remember a few weeks ago, I posted about how Target was ripping couponers off a number of ways. Thanks to Jen for the link to this video HERE if you want to see a news report on it. Unfortunatly, I am at work and can't actually hear what they are saying!! Soooooo, let me know if there is any new information!

I watched it and it just said what was going on. And that Target didn't know about the problem until this news story, hahaha. I hope they fix it.

I don't shop at target alot, but after the last time the receipt was crazy. It took off a small amount off each item I used a coupon for and stated that the refund amount would be less the target coupon amount. It was very confusing and it would have been easy for them to be ripping me off and I wouldn't have been able to tell. Also if they were subtracting manufacturers coupon amounts off my refund then they would be stealing because they got reimbursed for that coupon.

This is also happening at Walmart with my $5/5 Kraft coupons. It happened at 2 different stores. This has also happened to me at target with other coupons all the time!

I totally got ripped off on 9/28 I went into Target for their sale of the Huggies wipes for 1.99 I bought 12 as my sister just had her twins so I had 12 Targer coupons for .75 off each pack 64 ct or more and then 4 manf coupons for 2.50 off any three wipes 64 ct or more. They pretty much refused to accept any of my coupons at all. Then stayred saying since the coupon only had a pic of the hard case I could only use it on those even though it said ANY and the manf coupons are showing 1.99 not the 2.50 when they scan them. They refused to change the price saying they aren't allowed to and can't change prices in the system. I know this is not true as I worked for the company. Anyhow after 30 min later I was unable to get them to change it and was told I could just take my coupons back and go somewhere else and the manager informed me also they do not have ot read the coupons I aid you do esp for BOGO etc and she told me no they don't and that they won't. Man makes me never want to go back to Target ever horrible experience. I called the store back today to talk with another manager she took my number and was gonna look into it yea right corporate here I come.

Christina,

That definitely warrants a call to the 1-800#. I had a bad experience like that and they sent me gift checks for my trouble. As soon as I mentioned I was a blogger! LOL

But I would for sure call. They should not be so rude.

Yup happened to me as well for the exact same coupon that the lady tried to use in the video!!! It only would take off $1.80 for me. The cashier would not change it. I told her that Target would be getting the $4 but that I would only be saving $1.80 and she told me No thats not correct. She pulled a manager over and the manager said the same thing!!! UGH So I wrote an email to Target. No response - nothing!This happened in Houma, La.

Christina, I can't believe you went through all that! I also can't believe how ignorant some of these cashiers and managers are. It is ridiculous!

I called the store and spoke with a diff manager and she refused to be of any help. I knew I should have not bothered but I figured I could try. The 1800# is useless as is writing so no more Target for me I will go somewhere else.

Christina,

What a mess.
I go in phases where I don't bother with them because I am so mad.
Then I end up going back and trying again.
