Yahoo Business reports that the well known $5.00 off $25.00 or more purchase for toys in the United States will no longer be available.
According to Kathee Tesija, Executive Vice President, merchandising, the initial release of the discount was sent to approximately 85,000 recipients who signed up for such notifications through the Target.com website. As with most discounts that become available via the web, it was released to the general public without Target Stores authorization.
But this isn't why the coupon will not be honored going foward. Apparently, Target claims that users of the discount have been altering it, removing the word "toys" from the coupon for general item purchases.
Ms. Tesija apologized for the inconvenience this may cause to Target customers. The article then went on to state that the original recipients of the coupon would be receiving a $5.00 gift card in place of the coupon, and Target stores will be placing notifications at registers to let customers know that the coupons are no longer valid. The coupon had an expiration date of 10/1/2008.
