My husband bought me a jewelry box for x-mas from Target. He left the price tag on so I knew it was $29.99. Two weeks later I saw the SAME box at target for $7.49! I understand things go down after Christmas but I thought the later price was closer to the worth of the box. So, I did my usual tactic for getting lower prices. . .I bought the cheaper one to return it with the FIRST receipt.
Granted, some folks don't think this is fair. However, it is no differnt than if I returned the first box and then went and bought the second, I am simply changing the order of things. In this case they only had an oval box and not a square one like my gift, but I bought it anyway since they were the same price.
My husband tried to return the second box WITH THE (first) RECEIPT and was told he could only get the sale price since it is a "seasonal item." Bet you didn't know that jewlrey boxes are only puchased in December! My wise husband didn't do the return and said I could handle it (knowing I would get the cheaper price). I was LIVID! Even WITH a receipt they expected him to take a $22.00 cut? GIVE ME A BREAK!
Not willing to be beat by a store that ticks me off I put the OVAL box in the container for the SQUARE box and went to target with the first receipt. I was expecting fit to hit the shan as I said, "this was a gift from my hubby but the box inside doesn't match the one pictured on the front." The girl could have cared less and was already doing the return before I was done talking.
So, I got a $7.49 jewelry box after all but do you think I will trust shopping there again with that lame a*s return policy. NO WAY! Click here to read other Rip-off Reports on Target
