Do not buy wine or Alcohol at Target stores! They will grab your Driver license and swipe it into their system under the guise of "carding" you even if you are 60 and all that information is open to be sold by anyone in the company who has access.

It is not even legal. This was in Encinitas California and when I told them the problem with it they became very testy. Sort of "We are always right and you should do as we say" attitude.

Very krappy and I will never go back. don't shop at Target and for sure do not buy wine.

Monetary Loss: $7.

You people are absolute *** retards, you get carded for any type of product containing alcohol, it is the law. You even get carded for going into sex shops like facinations, etc.

Grow up, or shut up.

As a former Target cashier, just ask them to only put in the birth date and not scan it. The system should allow the sale to go through without having to swipe or scan your I.D.

I did alcohol sales all the time without ever having to scan the I.D

However, if you want a tax exemption then the cashiers are REQUIRED to scan the I.D there's no other way around it.

I've also got to say I only worked there for about 4 months before I quit I didn't like the company and thought it was pretty shady myself.

I don't recommend working for target they don't pay you *** for what you put up with. Peace.

I have had many a target cashier force me to take my license out even if I had to struggle for a few minutes to get it out of a very tight fitting wallet. They insisted they must scan it.

Maybe different stores have their own policy, but all but one Target that I have been to, have told me they must scan the license. I asked one time what do they do if someone has a passport that they can't slide, the cashier told me then they have to wait for the manager to come and okay the sale.

You can ask them to not swipe it, and they will just look and input the birthday. I used to work at Target and get yelled at about it all of the time (like I could actually change company policy because some crotchety person yells at me).

Those that yell at you for something that is not your fault, are they even old enough to purchase alcohol? I mean this is behavior you would expect from a two year old, not someone old enough to purchase alcohol.

Not to mention the spelling, I would expect someone that is old enough to drive, to know how to spell crappy.

CA state law is such that if a person looks under 30, then you must card them. Target's policy is much different than state law, and just a couple weeks ago they refused to sell alcohol to me (I am in my fifties) because I didn't have a license to scan (it was lost and I was waiting for the replacement).

A reasonable policy would be that if the person is old and gray haired you could reasonably assume that they were older than 21.

I had to have my 24 year old son come and buy the alcohol for me. It is a retarded policy.

People who are always right aren't minimum wage cashiers at Target.

I doubt that you are old enough to drink anyways, and were upset and scared to show your ID because you did not have ID or had fake ID. One who is old enough to drink would know how to spell better.

As a matter of fact I am wondering if you are even old enough to drive with spelling and grammar like that. Or perhaps like our British friend you are alcoholic and drinking killed your brain cells, either way denying you alcohol is a benefit for you.

Yeah, it's people like you who shoot up a random police officer because some cop ten states away did something to someone slightly similar to you in some way. You deserve to be carded if you obviously can't act your age.

Target, Walmart and every grocery store I frequent does the same thing. Since I am not ashamed of my purchases and could care less who knows it, even if what you say is true, it's no biggie to me.

The sell you name, address, and other info to every tom, ***, and harry company.

I for one wouldn't want other companies to know my name or address.

Not long ago Target was hit by hackers who stole their entire credit card database. Even the PIN numbers to debit visa/ mc

credit cards were stolen. Think about that the next time you make a debit card purchase at Target or any retailer.

The PIN numbers matched with credit/debit card numbers can be scanned onto fake credit/debit cards and used by criminals.

Oh and you have proof that your information is open to be sold? Yeah, I think not.

If you're so hard up on getting wine, why are you going to Target? Go to a package store, dumb a**. Don't shop at Target. They're not losing sleep over it!

Go to Walmart. They like your kind.

They do this with anything that they (Target) determine to be an 'ID required product'. Not just alcohol but computer software, cold medicine (purchased OTC). I am 38 years old and I am being carded for these items only at Target
