I know this is a non sequiter, but I really cannot stand these "coupon moms." Ugh.

Target doesn't care about you. Their business will go on without you - they have more than enough sheepish customers. Go support a small business in your neighborhood whenever possible.

I really don't believe that Target has known about this since August but haven't been able to correct the problem yet. You can bet they would have corrected the problem if the situation was reversed and their computerized registers were deducting more then the coupon's face value. Of course, now they will have to correct it as it has become publicized. Target has obviously been banking on the fact that most of their customers wouldn't realize the error and that those who did would believe the stores little "it's a computer glitch" story, take their refund and move on without complaint. Just another example of big corporations finding ways to make more money, even if it involves ripping off their customers.

Maybe some people aren't as fortunate as you, and have to make their dollar last as long as possible. Your attitude isn't admirable.

Yeah, my comment had nothing to do with anyone's economic situation, but thanks for your input.

Sorry Annie. You're a doofus. The few minutes it takes me to look through the coupons in the sunday paper and calculate the reduced price at the grocery store is WELL worth it to me.
I make a very good living, am not a "mom", but why would anyone pay more than they had to for the same item?

Would you rather have people use coupons to stretch their food budget or use your tax dollars to pay for food stamps? Seems like a no-brainer to me.
