Racked, eCommerce Bytes reports that Target is trying to cut down on this type of behavior in the future by banning resellers from purchasing its products. While I think this is good in theory (to try to stem the eBay market) here's the problem: regular 'ol consumers (like me) who order a lot from Target.com (for their own personal consumption) are being punished for this by having their accounts frozen (as mine has) for being categorized as "resellers". I already spent half an hour on the phone today with their customer service department, and the issue still isn't rectified (and honestly, I don't know if it will be).
Let me know if this has happened to any of you out there as well who order regularly from Target.com. Apparently the "new policy" went into effect May 12th. While I do order a lot from Target.com (mostly clothing, as Target never seems to have my size in stock in stores) I end up returning 80% of it in stores due to fit issues.
At this point, I am seriously considering cutting up my RedCard and of ending this blog. I'm just over it, readers. Target does NOTHING to support or help their loyal customers. So why should I support them with a blog singing their praises?
UPDATE: After almost a week, multiple calls to Target's CS line, and help from the Social Media team that monitors the TargetStyle FB page, my account has FINALLY been cleared and I am no longer listed as a "reseller". If this somehow happens to you, I'd encourage you to both call AND leave a complaint on Target's FB page. Honestly, had I not ranted on their FB page, I don't think this issue would have been cleared up.
