So I was stalking my registry this morning (I know- bad, BAD bride), and I noticed something that worried me. We registered for 2 table lamps. It was a mix and match thing, so we registered for 2 bases and 2 lampshades. Well…it appears someone bought us 4 lamp bases, and no lampshades. We DEFINITELY don’t need 4 bases…
I have heard Target has awful return policies and now I’m scared. I almost didn’t register with them because of this…
Please ease my fears! Did you have a good experience with Target returns??

That is probably just a computer error. Mine said I got 4 sets of the same towels, and only got 1. Said 3 pans, and only got 2. So- I wouldnt worry….

@Ms.Pink: I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Sounds like it might have been an error like PP said. Worst case scenario at least you have registered there. If they don’t give you a gift receipt I think you can use a gift purchase log to return them now.

Returns aren’t bad. I bought a gift for a wedding then went to the shower and saw someone else got it for her. Stupid me didn’t remember to keep the reciept. When I went back without it to return it they were able to pull the receipt from the registry. No issues at all.

I personally think Target’s return policy is great! I’ve returned things back and never ever have had a problem!
I will say that things “Magically” dissapearred off my list more than once though, so I honestly would keep checking it every so often.

@Ms.Pink: I never had problems with returning my gifts to Target. I even returned things that weren’t on my registry that they bought for me at the same time. I don’t want random things… so I returned a lot. I never had any problem! Don’t expect cash though, expect a Target gift card or in-store exchange. But you can get so much there it doesn’t even matter.

My Future Brother-In-Law told me they had an awful time returning things to Target. While the store gladly accepted items back they gave them severely discounted amounts as credit for the store when gift receipts weren’t available. For example an aunt purchase them a $24.99 iced tea set and they only got $8.99 in credit (the aunt later told my Fiance that she paid full price).
My personal experience has been that often the Target employee forgets about registering your purchase. With several weddings we have had remind the cashier more than once to scan the registery so that the bride and groom don’t end up with multiples.
I guess perhaps it may depend on your Target?
