Replacements & exchanges

Target Help
Most items purchased in store can be returned for a complete refund and repurchased for the new item, if available, at Guest Services within the return policy time frame, and we'll honor your promotional or sale price.

If you’d like to exchange an item purchased on, call Guest Services at 1-800-591-3869. If the item you want is available, we can process a return and place a new order for the item, honoring the original purchase price.

Note: Items sold by Target Plus Partners cannot be exchanged.

  • For refunds: We may issue your refund before we receive your returned item. If we inspect the item and it’s not eligible (used, damaged, etc.) based on our return policy, we may charge your card for the refund we’ve already issued to you.
  • For replacements: If you return an unexpected or ineligible (used, damaged, etc.) we may not send you the replacement.
  • Target doesn’t keep unexpected or ineligible (used, damaged, etc.) items sent to us. When able, we’ll donate or recycle them. If you’ve sent something to Target and want it back, contact us at 1-800-591-3869. We can’t guarantee we’ll be able to find and send back your item. We also can't compensate you for unexpected or ineligible items returned to Target.

We have a few ways of helping you return your items and we do our best to make sure you have proof of purchase.

Return barcodes and receipts can be accessed from your Target account for both online purchases and in-store purchases (if you’ve paid in store with a card associated to your Target account or your Wallet in the Target app).

For your online purchases: Please refer to your delivery and shipping confirmation emails for your order, the barcode related to your purchase in your Target account or the barcode in the Target app.

We can also attempt to look up the receipt for store and online purchases in store. Bring the item and the method of payment used to Guest Services within the return window allowed for that item (visit Target Return Policy).

The store can look up receipts for purchases made with the following payment methods:
  • Target Circle Card™ (Target Circle™ Debit Card, Target Circle™ Credit Card, Target Circle™ Mastercard®)
  • Third-party Visa®, Mastercard®, American Express® and Discover® credit cards

If you don't have the proof of purchase (examples include receipts, digital barcodes, packing slips), you may receive a refund in the form of a merchandise return card.

When returning an item purchased from a Target Plus™ Partner, you must provide the proof of purchase. Receipts for items sold by Target Plus Partners are sent via email when the order is shipped, and again when the order is delivered. You can also print your receipt on your order details page or use a digital barcode found within the Target app or your Target account.
