What a surprise when I checked my inbox this afternoon! Please check your inbox if you ordered a Britax Marathon from Target and your order was canceled. I posted what I thought was a great deal on the Britax Marathon last week. I would have never posted it if I thought it was an error – but there were two Britax Marathons at rock-bottom prices and I thought it was just a really good sale of a limited stock. Well, it ended up being an unusual pricing error and now Target is making it up to all of us whose orders were canceled. I received an email for a $25 e-GiftCard to use on anything at Target.com. It sounds like several of my readers are receiving the same thing. I am totally surprised, but applaud Target’s effort to “make things right” and keep their Target customers happy even when Target messes up. This is a good example of a retailer going above and beyond what they need to do to make their customers happy. Thank you, Target.
And remember that if you shop through Ebates you’ll get 4% cash back from the purchase you make at Target.com. I’ll be hunting for a great deal and if I find one I’ll be sharing what I spend my $25 on this weekend. There are tons of items right now that have free shipping. And Target always has great clearance sales (hopefully no more pricing errors though).
