Returning with Drive Up is a new service we’re testing in some stores for some items. If you’re item is eligible, you may be able to choose Drive Up as an option when you Start a return through your Order Details page. Not all items or locations will be available for a return with Drive Up.

  3. Drive to the store. Follow the instructions in the app for navigating to the store and parking. 
  4. Wait for a team member. Once you arrive and say you’re here, a team member will arrive shortly to complete your return. If you have a Drive Up order as well, they’ll place the order first and process your return at the end. You’ll get your refund details right away by email (usually before you leave the store). 

If there are any issues with your return, you can carefully pull out of the Drive Up space and re-park in a normal parking spot. Go into the store to Guest Services, where they may be able to help troubleshoot your return issues.

We keep the Drive Up return open for 7 days. That means you have seven days to complete your Drive Up return. If an item in your Drive Up return has a return policy that is expiring sooner than seven days, all items in your return will reflect that.
  • Example: If you create a return for five items, but one item has 2 more days before the return policy expires, all six items will need to be returned within 1 day by Drive Up. 
If you don’t return within that time, we’ll send you an email letting you know the return has been canceled. 

Even though the Drive Up return has been canceled, your item may still have time to be returned through our Target return policy. If you still want to return the item, you may be able to restart a return online, or you can go into the store at Guest Services to try and return it.

It’s required for you to bring the item’s barcode to a Drive Up return. 

To process your returns, the Drive Up team member needs to identify the item(s) being returned is the correct one. The team member does this by scanning the barcode that was attached to the item when you purchased it. 

The item’s barcode can usually be found on the item’s tag, a sticker on the box or item, or on the original packaging for the item. 

If you don’t have the item’s tag, sticker or barcode, we recommend you try to return your item at Guest Services inside the store (instead of doing a Drive Up return). 

Tags don’t need to be attached to the item, and you won’t need to show us any other return receipts to complete your Drive Up return.

Right now, when you create a return for multiple items, we’ll group those items together throughout the experience. 

If you say you’re bringing your group of return items, but you forget some or all the items from those groups, we’ll return what’s available and cancel any return you didn’t bring. Don’t worry, you can always try to restart a return online for the canceled return items if you find them later and they’re still eligible based on our return policy.

If you say you’re bringing your group of return items, but: 
You forgot all of the grouped return items, we’ll just skip that part during your Drive Up trip and you can bring them another time. Keep in mind that you have a return window of 7 days from when you first started the return to bring the items by Drive Up. 

You forget some of the items from the groups but not everything, we’ll return what is available and cancel the returns for the rest of that group. You can always try to restart a return online for the canceled returns if you find them later.
