When you get a receipt from shopping in person at Target they say on the bottom you can win money by completing their online survey about your shopping experience. First of all, I've NEVER once heard of anyone winning this money!
Have you?? There needs to be an investigation into this and a verified winners list disclosed!
Secondly, my issue is that I went to the online site, entered all my information within 24 hours of shopping at the store, and the website told me I was not allowed to take the survey because my receipt was over 72 hours old! That was bs!
I had just shopped at Target the night before. I tried about 5 times to enter the code on the receipt, but each time it told me it had been over 72 hours since I shopped at Target. Lies! So I emailed customer service, and the lady sent me a scripted response that said I had to enter all the information off the receipt and hit submit.
Uh, hello?! Did you even read my email? You did not even address my problem! The problem was that AFTER I did all that and hit submit, I was told it was after 72 hours, when it had hardly been 24 hours!
I received another email that said I had to write all the information from the receipt onto a postcard and MAIL IT to target to enter the sweepstakes! WHAT?!! So now in addition to wasting my valuable time, you want me to PAY for a stamp and a postcard, and MAIL IT to target just to enter the sweepstakes that probably doesn't even really exist?? Are you crazy??
There's no way I'm paying money to send you a postcard! You need to fix the problem with your website! Clearly I should be able to enter the survey online since I was doing it the next night after shopping. The solution is NOT to make me pay money!
The solution is to fix your website, or send me a direct link to take the survey. But no, they would not actually take the time to fix the issue. They wanted ME to PAY to fix the problem! Take up my valuable time and resources just to enter their fake sweepstakes!
Unbelievable!! Target is a scam artist!
