I hate to keep harping on Target, but it looks as if they are STILL not bending to public opinion about their decidedly non-customer friendly "return" policy. I would even go so far as to say the policy is, "let's make it as hard as possible to return ANYTHING policy."
A little background: About a year ago, Target's return policy changed. Now, any purchase over 90 days (receipt or not) cannot be returned. Even if the customer lives far away, or even if they can prove they purchased it through credit card records. Even if the box hasn't been opened. Even if the gift was a duplicate purchased through a wedding gift registry. I could go on, but the folks at ConsumerAffairs.com have allowed Target's own customers to rant on its site for a long time. Just click on over and give it a read. You'll see what I'm talking about.
I still shop at Target for some stuff, but since this return policy has been instituted, I would think twice about registering for wedding gifts there. I am engaged now, so this is a real decision I am making, not just some arbitrary "threat." Where will my dozens of wedding guests go to buy gifts? A place where I could not return unopened duplicates without a receipt? I think not.
