Thanks Target Story - WOW (long story)

So I get panic attacks too easily in crowds, so Black Friday shopping is absolutely my biggest fear LOL - I did 100% of my Christmas shopping online between BF and Cyber Monday and had it all shipped to my house, I put it out in our game room/studio until I could wrap them to keep them away from the kids. Almost two weeks they have sat out there. I finally brought the boxes all inside and started opening them. I opened my Target box #1 and there are the 2 clothing items I ordered, Target box #2 has an xbox game, Target box #3 has the xbox with kinnect that santa is bringing.... At this point I realize that's all I ordered from Target but I still had 2 boxes left. 2 BIG boxes. I open one and it's another xbox system! Then I open the other and yes, it's ANOTHER xbox system! I immediately text my hubby and tell him and say what do I do?? I mean I know what I should do and what I want to do. He says no we don't want bad karma and our luck our xbox would be broken LOL

So I call Target - I told them I'm sure you are going to think I"m crazy for calling but you sent me 3 xboxes.... i only paid for 1, two of the shipping invoices are identical, 1 only has one number different in the tracking info, but what do I do???? They put me on hold for a few minutes, came back and said we have a glitch in our shipping system. We are not going to make you return them, just donate to a family or return to your nearest Target for a refund or you can sell it. Whatever, Merry Christmas and thank you for calling and letting us know......

So we sold one for a discount and donated one to a needy family..... CRAZY! But Target was so nice about it!

WOW!! What a GREAT glitch on your part!! I once ordered a pair of maternity pants from walmart. They sent me 3 pairs when I had only ordered one. Wish my glitch would have been something as cool as an x-box!

It's a really great thing you did, especially because you were honest with Target about it.

While I have never had a glitch with Target as big as the one you had, I have had a few mistakes at the registers. One occurred when the register auto took off an amount for a coupon, and the coupon (a free item) had a max of half that amount. I didn't realize it till I was in the car but I went back in and explained what happened at CS. I told them they wouldn't get reimbursed for such a large amount and that I owed them x dollars. I was pretty sure the lady was going to start laughing at me lol, she told me to consider it a gift and leave it at that. That tends to be their standard response on glitches, but it's always a good idea to come clean in my opinion.

I think it's wonderful that you donated one and were still rewarded with some extra $ during the holidays. Karma in full effect (you did the right thing and called them).
