    The gesture is nice until you read the fine print. More of a shameless self-promotion plug than than an attempt to reconcile the incident.

     

    *Valid in store only. Limit one offer per guest to be used in a single transaction. Void if prohibited by law. Not valid in Canada. No cash value.

    10% is no discount. Do they get a credit card with that like all other promotions from other stores that offer 10%. LOL. I am not a fan of target by any means, they are overpriced and 2 of the 20+ lanes open at all times.

    Can't help margins on the next quarterly report.

     

    Not like WMT needed help, but I'll take it. Long WMT.
