Target Data Breach

Target is currently undergoing an investigation where they have overcharged customers at the register more than what the price was on the shelf. They are paying a $4 million fine.

Check out this video for more information.

Whenever you are shopping, remember to check the prices with the cashier to make sure things are ringing up correctly.

      I have so many problems at Target that I rarely shop there. Not worth the hassle. Wrong price on shelf, no product, ad is a “misprint”. Always something. I don’t think it’s isolated……..

      Receipt is very complicated. Coupons are frequently not credited. Customer service lines are ridiculously long. I haven’t shopped there since before Christmas.

      I would love to know where all that fine is going, obviously not the customers that over paid!!

      I have noticed after the fact on numerous occasions that the price I paid was more than what I thought the shelf sticker said. But another issue that makes it difficult is that their stickers are not always easily matched with the items, especially in the baby department. Ever tried to shop a registry?? Yikes.

      This happened the other week with the bandaid deal! Ad and shelf said buy 2 get 1 free but the register rang them up buy 3 get 1. I didn’t let them get away with it. And it wasn’t the first time!

      As couponers we know we need to be diligent about checking prices, signs and receipts. This happens at EVERY store. This is nothing new. People change the signs, sometimes forgetting to put some up or take them down. It is called human error. Pretty much every store I know of will honor old prices that were not taken down and make it right for the customer, Target included. I always check prices and scan items at Target as well as other stores to confirm the price is what I thought it was. If a sign and price don’t match, I take a picture with my phone and take it to the register, so that they can properly mark it down for me. After I have paid and I am leaving the store, I will also scan my receipt to check that the prices were correct and all coupons were deducted. If something is incorrect I will get it fixed at customer service. I think these types of occurrences fall to the customer as well as the consumer.

        Happened to me a few weeks ago at Publix the first day of a new sales cycle. The fried chicken was supposed to be on special, and I noticed the sticker on the package still showed the regular price. I went to check out, and sure enough it was rung up as regular price. Since I caught the error then, they gave it to me for free.

        Oddly enough, I don’t think I’ve ever caught this at Target. I’ve caught it a few times at Walmart and CVS. The one time I saw a price that wasn’t what it should be at Target, I actually went to the customer service counter before purchasing it. The item wasn’t marked down in their system but showed a lower price online. So they checked me out at customer service and gave me the lower price.

      This happens regularly at various stores and it may save you a bundle if you can train your mind to remember the price of every item you put in your cart. Or, carry a pen and write down prices on your grocery list as you put things into your cart. Then watch as things ring up at the register. I can recall two different weeks in my life in which I saved over $25 because a store reimbursed me for items they had overcharged me for. I saved $24 this way just last month. Such large amounts are unusual, but even small amounts of money add up.

      Walmart should be investigated too last night the shelf price said one thing and the charged me more
