Price Affordability

I bought an air pump at Target. I then took it home and charged it for the required 10 hours,it did not work.

I took it back to target and they refused to let me return it. Target told me their policy on camping equipment was exchange only, which I can understand, but I feel I should have been informed of this policy before I bought the item. When I asked the store manager why I was not informed when I bought the air pump of the return policy she told me it was on my receipt, it was in fact not stated on the receipt. When I pointed this out to her she simply restated that I could not return the air pump.

I also feel since the item I bought was defective they should have taken that into consideration. I will never shop at Target again for anything.

Reason of review: unclear return policy.

Monetary Loss: $29.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

I didn't like: Unclear return policy.

Do a credit card chargeback and tell Target to go *** themselves. That's ridiculous.


Wtf kind of return policy is that? I've never heard of it and I work at guest service for Target.

The only thing that is exchanged only is opened video games or movies. Even the copied and pasted exchanged policy below sounds flaky.
