I just spent $300 at target, I spend thousands of $'s there a year however they won't give me the 5% redcard discount. I called customer service and they said my bill was 3 days past due so they shut down the card and they would not give me the 5% discount.
Really, 3 days! I pay my bill off on time every single month however this month my bill was due on Christmas day. I scheduled the payment through my bank online and it has not gone through yet probably because of the holidays and it being the weekend. If it was months past due I could understand but 3 days b/c of the holidays is ridiculous.
I would not have spent that much money or went to Walmart if I knew of this policy or even that my acct was past due by 3 days. Target has HORRIBLE customer service and RIDICULOUS policies!
They just lost a great customer, I'm shopping at Walmart from now on. They are lower priced anyways!
Monetary Loss: $15.
