It really does!
HOW did I get it? – I complained
About a month ago, I posted how the gift card was to be sent as thanks for completing a Photographer’s Edge survey.The questions were answered and an explanation provided that I was no longer selling photo greeting cards. Completed the survey and got a call that a $25 credit would be given towards future purchases.
NOT what I expected – show me the gift card, and they did, after I wrote to complain and might have mentioned a “bait and switch” tactic and something about reneging on an offer.
For folks not familiar with Target, it’s the second largest discount retailer in the U.S., behind Wal-Mart. It has a bull’s-eye trademark and is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota . In January, Target announced its expansion into Canada where it will operate 100 to 150 stores by 2013.
The closest Target retail store from the VA Eastern Shore is a 90-minute drive north to Salisbury, MD. We won’t be going anytime soon as gas prices have curtailed some road trips. The GREAT news is that gift cards don’t expire.
If something’s not quite right – COMPLAIN – you just might get what you want (and deserve).
Thanks, Photographer’s Edge for following through on an offer.
