My checks didn't work?

Anyone have a problem with your formula checks (meaning the coupons that look like checks) not going through? I used the same style one at a different store of the same chain (Target) just about a week before and it worked. I bought the same formula this time. The only difference being it was for $4 off instead of $5 off and the expiration date about 2 weeks later. I was baffled and really annoyed!

FYI- these are the only 2 times I have ever used checks...I just bought generic formula with my older kids. We are using Enfamil Nutramigin with DD

Did you have them call a manager? Sometimes they need to push special buttons or turn a key.

I'm guessing the cashier didn't know how to enter them. I know at target they have to enter them as rebate checks, not coupons. Next time I would as for the manager if they say they wont work....as long as they are within the time frame there should be no problem.

Re: My checks didn't work?

I had this happen to me last week at Target. She ran it through the check reader and it rejected it. She just put it in as a coupon. Maybe there is something wrong with their system? Mine was for $5 off good start though.

Yeah she did it wrong. I work at Target and the first time i had a guest give me one of those checks i was completely baffled by it. There is a function for rebate checks ( or something like that) that takes the cashier through a special process for redeeming those. Definitely ask for a supervisor next time =0)
