A FORMER Target employee has revealed how people can get their hands on items not usually offered in stores while shopping in person.
She said that while these items are rare finds, they’ll usually be priced at a discounted rate.
The former employee, Amanda Harrer, shared her knowledge in a video posted on YouTube.
She assured viewers that she did not intend to bash the company but just wanted people to know how to get the best deals.
Possibly her most interesting point brought up is the supposed fact that shoppers can get their hands on online-only items while in the store.
“If you’re browsing the clearance rack, you might see something called ‘repackaged’ or ‘online item,'” she noted.
“So online items are items that were bought on Target.com and were returned to the store and they aren’t items that are basic to the planogram on the floor.
“They’re gonna be items you obviously can’t find in the store but they’re also going to be a little discounted because they are returned and likely opened,” she claimed.
Harrer continued: “And also you can see repackaged items and those are going to be items that somebody returned.
“They’re a little like out of the package or like curtains, somebody looked at them, and then we just mark them down.”
Harrer told people they should never skip the end of the aisles, called the “end caps,” because that’s where you can find these deals.
She also noted that Target does not discount items by more than 70 percent.
The Sun has reached out to Target in an attempt to verify the claims.
Target’s online purchase return policy states that almost all goods can be returned to a store if specific qualifications are met.
“Items purchased on Target.com may be returned to any Target store using the receipt, the barcode found in the Target app, Target delivery or shipping confirmation email, or the original form of payment.
“Some items are only returnable in store and can’t be mailed back to our online return center.
“This will be indicated in the shipping & returns section on the product details page,” it reads.
Furthermore, the site says that customers have 90 days to return “most unopened items sold by Target in new condition.”
In other Target news, an informed shopped previously revealed the true meaning behind the red balls that are often seen outside of Target stores.
