It was targets responsibility to ensure only a limited quantity got sold, not the customers. We purchased what your systems offered, at the price it was offered. Our orders were accepted, and we even got order acknowledgements via email after the fact. O cancel these orders after the fact, because targets systems are poorly designed are unfair to the customer. We would like to see Target follow the lead of other retailers like Frys and Buy.com, and ship all orders that were acknowledged. We will online to raise media attention, which will only hurt the Target brand. Please do the right thing so we can all put this behind ourselves.
Mass cancellation emails are currently being sent out by Target
