I was at your Target store today, returning a duplicate Kindle my husband received for his birthday. I didn’t have the receipt as it was from my son in Indianapolis and we are not sure where the receipt is. Although he did purchase the Kindle at Target, I thought it would be no problem returning the Kindle and getting like gift card money in the amount of the Kindle.
No way shape or form. The girl at your service desk was rude, unfriendly and not someone that needs to be dealing with customers at a service desk. I was told that if the Kindle was over 70 dollars that I would have to spend a penny over in order to get the credit in the Department 57 items ONLY.
Seriously … I walked back to see what was available for me to exchange for the Kindle — nothing that I would begin to purchase.
Another customer was standing back in the department when I went back to see what my options were – and she said she had the same problem with Target last week. She took her Kindle back and sold it on eBay for double the amount.
I said this make no sense to me – that Target would rather let you walk out the door if you don’t want items in DEPARTMENT 57 — or have absolutely no use for them. And dear God if you come back a penny under the amount of what the Kindle lists for — the service gal said I couldn’t get my money back then either.
So I walked back through your store and decided to do as the other lady – take the Kindle – of which I understand you already have your money from the first sale – but seriously – don’t you understand that – if I was given a gift card — and kindness I would have spent more than the gift card and you would have the Kindle back to resale.
So be that as it may – i decided to take the Kindle sell it on eBay — took it from your customer service gal — to get home and notice she tore the seal off. There were 2 girls in the service desk area — there were cameras – and you will see that my Kindle had its seal intact – but getting back to looking at the Kindle when I got home — your gals at the service desk decided to pull a fast one and pull the seal off the Kindle box.
I know I am probably wasting my breath and typing with this email- but genuinely hope that you show better customer service through your corporate office than the local store here in Evansville, Indiana on First Avenue.
Please check your cameras, I was there around 9:30am – with 2 children ages 4 and 2. I am so angry that the girls behind your desk was able to pull off a scam to me the public — I could just spit! So, I will anxiously await hearing from you.
And now if I were you and when you run a drivers license as you did mine and you see that I don’t have returns on my drivers license … as your customer service gals – made a HUGE deal about … well if you don’t have x amount of dollars in returns you may be able to go back to the department this came from and get like merchandise …. SERIOUSLY !
That in itself – will keep me away from your stores – there is more fish in the sea than Target! The days of good customers are worth their weight in gold … sure doesn’t hold true for Target anymore… I am sure that is why the general public pays very close attention to those stars and comments that are given companies and merchandise … because THAT IS WORTH IT’S WEIGHT IN GOLD.
Sorry … that I am so frustrated but this take the cake!
