How to Beat the Gift Card Glitch at the REGISTER!

I did this on a schick giftcard deal and it went off flawlessly.

What you do is you "buy" an item to cover the cost of the giftcards they are going to give you. I grabbed a twilight dvd. 20 bucks.

After everything is rung up.. and coupons used, change you mind on the dvd and have them remove it. If you have a big transaction and are going to earn lots of cards.. get a DVD box set. a simple easy one item thing they can quickly remove. Put it at the end of your transaction so it is on top and easily removed from your bags.

All fixed.

the cashier didn't get flustered.. I got what I wanted without explaining how to do something 100 times...

give it a shot. try a small transaction at first, have an idea what you should be paying after coupons.. and watch it work

Wow rude much.

Maybe you should look up all the giftcard problems target is having before you throw your 2 cents in. You would see that they have a system glitch that will not take CORRECT coupons when you do a giftcard deal. She would have to pay with her money then go an and EXPLAIN to CS what is wrong and get a refund for the coupons the register would not take off.. Probably after alot of hassle as well.

Target should have fixed this problem in the summer.. along with their other register problems.

Hmm, that is a good idea considering I still have enough coupons to get 40 more candles and it costs a lot of money to keep getting extra merchandise. I was thinking that maybe you could purchase a Target gift card for the amount you need and then you could just turn around and use the gift card to pay for another gift card deal. Do you think it will work? The only thing I don't feel great about is having Target have to restock the item and the cashier have to spend extra time but for all Target has put me through lately with all the glitches and such, I guess it evens out.

glad I wasn't around to read the ignorant rude comment. sounds like this poster takes it personally like they programmed the computer or something.

Don't program computers for Target, but did for a large national/international bank and knew exactly what types errors and glitches occurred.

It can be better computer equipment and operating systems vs. older equipment and less updated software; different updates of software files (not all systems are updated at the same time); regional programming; computers are different mid-range systems.

Let's remember we are only as good as our computers. Computers are programmed by people and because people are fallible, so are our systems.

well then,here is an idea. How about Target takes some of the money that it has been STEALING from couponers and buys some new equiptment. No excuse you offer is going to be good enough. Target is robbing people, plain and simple, and they have known that it has been happening for MONTHS!

Let's remember we are only as good as our computers. Computers are programmed by people and because people are fallible, so are our systems.
I never saw what you said to my post originally. But I don't understand why what i'm doing (or what I mentioned) deserved a negative reply? The coupons I use are legit, and I get harrassed like a criminal when I try to use them at a store that I like, with employees that try to make it work. They are flustered, I'm embarrassed... etc.

I JUST went and did the transaction like I stated earlier.. and you know what?? no beeps... Qs came of perfectly, DVD was removed at the end- and I walked out with the stuff that I paid for along with the giftcards I earns for the promo. So while therr are scammers- there are moms and dads out there trying to make ends meet with the what we we try to call a "paycheck" And if these things can be used in the home, or given as gifts so be it.

All these wonderful people do is simply match up the deals and share the ways to make it work. And FWIW- Target sends every single one of those Qs in for face value PLUS 8 cents on the dollars. They have made money hand over fist for MONTHS on Qs...I don't feel sorry for Target giving away some candles...If this deal was going to break them they wouldn't have repeated it this year.

I would not buy a gift card... if you do just what I did you won't have a problem. You may stil have the typical Q problems we have always had... but I was giddy to see my purchase go off without a hitch tonight- nothing beeped.. the 3/3 Qs had to be adjusted from 2.99 to 3.00...but that's it

that is a very good idea as long as you are not price matching (like i did). I did my transactions at c.s and the cashier was VERY nice and knew exactly what to do. I got my 40 candles and made $6.00 to put them in my car. will DEFINATELY keep your idea in mind for future reference though. THANKS!

Okay, would somebody please catch me up to speed about why we need to do this? I haven't been to Target in months because we moved and now I only have two Targets and they are both an hour away. But with some good deals and a decent running vehicle I may just have to make the drive every once in awhile, so I'd at least like to stay informed. Thanks.

because Targets computer programmers are not the brightest bulbs, they set up the registers so that they are accounting for the GC like they are Man Qs. So you have to have an oop of 2x the value of the GC.
We could also say they set the registers up this way because Target is going out of their way to scam their shoppers, just like they have been doing with our coupon values the last 6 months or so
