Target Complaints - False Advertising on Debit Card
Company Name : Target - View All Target Complaints
I have a great credit score and pride myself on paying my bills on time. However, after being harassed each time I check out at Target, I finally applied for a Target debit card to save the 5% per transaction. Imagine my embarrasment to be told I'd been denied. I immediately called, got passed from Target customer service to their credit agency and back, and finally was told I was denied because of my check writing history at Target. NOT my overall check writing history, but only that of Target history. Firstly, who writes checks at retail establishments anymore? Secondly, their "fine print" states that the credit agency also checks overall check writing history. Sorry, but that is BULL. I believe that Target does not want customers to save 5% each time. They would rather have folks apply for a credit card and carry revolving debt so that they can make even more money. What's wrong with them? With so many Americans over their head in debt and struggling to make ends meet, I disagree with that strategy. I say "Walmart, here I come"!
