At Target stores, you can change the price of both in-store and online purchases at any checkout lane or the Guest Services counter.

Refunds in cash will be given right away. Refunds on credit or debit cards can take up to 5 days, but refunds on Target RedCards only take 1-2 days.

If you paid with a check, you will get a merchandise return card or cash, depending on whether or not the check has been cleared. For online orders, you’ll need to call Guest Services or start an online chat through the Target app or desktop website.
