Sorry if this has been brought up already. I've been away and haven't checked thoroughly.
At a Target in Vegas this morning, I saw a sign at the register. It said, "Due to fraudulent tampering and transferring, we are unable to any longer honor the following coupons." And then a pic of two online coupons, one of which was the "$5 off a $25 toy purchase" coupon.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's nothing on the coupon that says it can't be transferred, copied, or used more than once by a customer, right?
Sounds to me like word got out, Target was getting a lot of these, and they're just exercising their right to crappy customer service. (Reneging on an offer simply because it's popular is their right, but it can't be described as anything else.)
