I tried to purchase a television @ my local Target, in Limerick Pennslyvania. I was completely shocked and mostly embarrassed because Target would not honor the check, not because I didnt have suffient funds but because I have never written a check at the "point of sales"

Its 2010 and who honeslty writes check at the point of sales ?!?! I have written Target corporation lots of checks to pay my credit card and there is never a issue.

All i wanted to do was spend $726.00 on a Television but NOPE your policy of frequent check at the point of sales.

Boscovs was happy to take my money with no questions ask.

I will never ever again shop at a Target store, as much as it kills me because I did enjoy spending all of my money in your stores, but never again.

I have told alot of people of the ridiculous policy and no one heard of this

Thanks for your time reading this

May I help you find something is obviously an immature ***. Probably a retail sales clerk making 9 dollars an hour!

That would explain his choice of the handel "may I help you find something".

To answer, NO! But if you will pull your head out, I can help you find something!

target has this policy to protect you. you cannot spend over $100 on a check if you've never written a check at a target store... this is a security measure to protect your checking account from identity theft you ***, so stop fuking blaming target and grow up you big baby.

What a corporate man! My bank already protects my acount. I do not need a store like Target deciding I may not be who my license, check, and credit cards all say I am. I hate Wal Mart and Target is creeping into that category too.

Today I tried to write a check to Target for over 350.00 for an HDTV at Vadnais Heights,MN store. I too was turned down because I had not written checks before.

What happen to checking id's/picture to protect identity theft? What happened to using credit bureaus or credit scores Wow... Your telling me Bill Gates or Warren Buffett shops there and tries once to use a check and they decline.

I/m blown away by this credit policy decision. Walmart took my check this time.

Pissed, this just happened to us today to. When I called the 800 number , I was told that in order to purchase the TV we were wanting to buy, we too had to have a check writing history of over $100 each time for a couple of months.

Well, we wont be shopping there anymore either because of their check writing history policy.

They embarrassed us by not taking the check. its funny Sears took our money for the TV we bought, with no check writing history.

This fact is not stated in your OP. So either your story has changed or your telling of the same story has changed. You are represented on this forum by your own words and we’re reached the point where you have changed your story.

“For your information I did use my debit card.”

But you didn’t say so in your OP, did you? Are there any other ‘facts’ you forgot to give us? See how this new admission weakens your complaint against Target…

Quote=”Pissed143”

“I can not make a purchase that large because I never would.”

So you have a personal policy about transactions? Why on earth are you upset with Target? Because they failed to follow your self-imposed rules?

Quote=”Pissed143”

“My Bank would think somoene (sic) stole my debit card! “

Really!?!

So why not go to the bank before shopping and get cash money or a corporate (cashier’s) check for your big purchase? Or, enroll with Target for a Red Card and enjoy a further ten percent discount on your TV purchase? (Did ‘Boscovs’ offer you a 10% discount?)

Quote=”Pissed143”

“And Yes I will never shop there again for the simple fact they would not take my check”

Once again, that’s your decision, not Target’s. If Target has lost your business over a simple transaction where you expected them to bend the rules, both of us are better off if you stay away from Target stores in the future.

For your information I did use my debit card and I can not make a purchase that large because I never would. My Bank would think somoene stole my debit card!

And Yes I will never shop there again for the simple fact they would not take my check because I haven't written a check at the point of sales fruquently enough, but I have used my debit card there monthly and its from the same acccount.

You haven’t told us why you refuse to use a Debit (or Credit) card instead of checks.

So pretty much, you didnt have the money in yoru account and you were floating a check until payday, and now you are mad they wouldnt take it. If you had the money, why not just use your debit card.

“I was completely shocked and mostly embarrassed because Target would not honor the check”

So you wrote a normal check against your personal checking account in front of the TM (Team Member), who processed it according to store policy, and it was refused by the TM helping you at a POS register?

Quote=”Pissed143 “

“not because I didnt (sic) have suffient (sic) funds but because I have never written a check at the "point of sales"”

How does Target know that you had enough in your account to cover the check? Did the TM process your check including running the actual check through the scanner?

Was you given a paper rejection slip with an 800 number? If so did you call and ask the check verification company for assistance?

“Its 2010 and who honeslty (sic) writes check at the point of sales ?!?! I have written Target corporation lots of checks to pay my credit card and there is never a issue.”

Exactly! It’s the 21st Century and you’re still carrying a check book? Why didn’t you just use your Debit card to complete the transaction? A Debit card would draw from the same checking account as the paper check you prepared.

Quote=”Pissed143 “

“All I (sic) wanted to do was spend $726.00 on a Television but NOPE your policy of frequent check at the point of sales.”

Did you mean to say that you object to a retailer verifying a hand written check? It’s a store policy and for good reason! Intended to reduce or prevent fraudulent checks. How is that done? By scanning the actual check and using a third party verification service. In your case the check was rejected, we don’t know why, and you had the option to use your Debit card to complete the transaction.

“I will never ever again shop at a Target store, as much as it kills me because I did enjoy spending all of my money in your stores, but never again.”

Wow! You have banned yourself from a first class retailer where you enjoyed shopping because you had a hissy fit over an 19th Century method of commerce (i.e. Check writing).

“I have told alot of people of the ridiculous policy and no one heard of this”

Really!?! How many people? Do you all insist on writing checks at POS terminals? Why? Plastic (Debit, Credit, or Store Credit) are all faster and easier. Please consider joining the rest of us in year 2010!
