Yes, I am currently in Hawaii and Target is the only store that plays these games. There are three Target stores on island. Everyone else except for the Pulse Ebay store will ship to me. Pulse Actual does and an excellent job of it.EnigmaticClarity wrote: ↑Wed Dec 01, 2021 8:20 pm
Yea sorry to hear that too. I was also wondering if he lived in Hawaii, or possibly Alaska, and if Target even has stores in one or both of those places.
Target used to ship regular products and only few exclusives were "prohibited".
Now almost everything is prohibited.
But they seemed able to ship a second Shang Chi Katy for $22 (after she became unpopular and was in store at $6).
They shipped Breaker pre-order without me playing with the IP address or placing the order and requesting a change of address. They did it right off the bat. Yet, I could not get a second one shipped when they were on sale!???
Customer Service sent BBQ direct to me when the one sent to the alternate address was delayed. So the Automated Customer Assistance side of the website can bypass the restriction.
They even shipped two Halo Mantis on sale. That was a huge box so it isn't the shipping cost because I got free shipping.
Yet, when I call customer service and ask why I cant check out, they say the most outlandish excuses and blame everyone to include the State Government prohibiting the items, shippers refusing to deliver and one even told me that we aren't part of the US.
They refuse to recognize that all the other stores ship to me and they have even shipped to me. Only to then make things more restrictive.
One employee tried and actually did improve things but it did not last long. Less than a week.
But for the exclusives, I will not shop at Target.
I am glad that everyone can get the great BOGO deals but when a basic ninja is double the price here. No. I am not going into that store because I know the shipping restrictions are only to force people into the store. Which usually doesn't have the exclusives anyway.
Yes, I did manage to get my first Katy sent to the store but after Major Blood that too was shutdown.
The Python Patrol and Tiger Force exclusives are all ordered for the UK. I would rather do business with them (dealing with the shipping cost and exchange rate) than continue to give Target and then UPS money.
For what I have wasted in shipping I could have supported two Haslabs.
Rant done. Not really. I am beyond ranting so it's not a rant. More of a ramble. But I hope it was entertaining.
But for a final point. Hasbro thought it was funny as @#$%! when I contacted them to ask if Target's excuse that the "Manufacture" had prohibited the sale of GI Joe and Marvel Legends was true.
