Target, Really?

If you haven't read what's happening with Target and their price matching and couponing policy read all the details here at Common Sense with Money. Apparently the coupons on Target's site will not tell you if they are a Target Coupon or Manufacturer coupon, nor will it tell you when it expires. It will once it's printed, but that could waste a lot of ink and paper. I foresee Target losing a lot of business due to this. I myself have to drive 45 minutes to get to Target and I usually pick up other things when I'm there. With this new attitude Target has about couponing and price matching, I'm not really sure if it would be worth my time to go. Heck, it's not like there is a Target in every town like Walmart is. Target needs understand that they need to make people happy to get them to go out of their way to go shop there. Target needs new advisers if you ask me. I can almost guarantee I will be shopping at Target less often. It's just not worth it anymore.

What are your thoughts about the every changing Target policies?

Targets whole marketing/h.r. teams need to get together. I don't see the online coupons being a problem, since most manufacturer coupons people have from papers and other online coupon sites...but I like what Deal Seeking Mom said about the changing price matching policy...instead of having a well thought out policy they change it on a whim...
This is the 3rd policy change in a few months. It makes them look unorganized...they should've never have done a price match policy- their business was fine before. But now they've really complicated things. When we move we will have a WalMart, but not a Target. So I KNOW my business is going to be at WalMart more than Target. Which may be good timing with all the Target weirdness.
