I used to work at ALDI and their security is almost on par with Target. A manager sometimes watches the cameras in the office but they do have a bigger corporate office where tapes are watched and case building is done if the theft is big enough/frequent enough. If its not big enough they will send footage/pics/license plate info to store manager so they can watch or ban you next time you come in.

At the trget i worked at, they wouldnt let you leave without checking your receipt and all the items in your bag. We still had plain clothes walking around. Grocery side was closed off between 8pm-2am with security monitoring the "dead" areas

Threatening a charge back and/or a police report seems to work in these situations for me. DNA's are definitely not dead

Be careful. Last year I worked at a target on Black Friday and we had extra security in plain clothes and you had to show a receipt to leave if you had a bag. Some poor kid paid for an item at self checkout and threw away the receipt. Security wouldn’t let him leave and he had to dig threw the trash for it

I used to work at target and cameras were monitored at all times by one LP. Another LP would be walking around the front of the store and one more LP in plain clothes.

Update: they’re giving me a refund. This was my first time doing this with Amazon and I’ve never returned anything and I make weekly orders so hopefully they don’t suspend my account. That’s the only thing I’m worried about. But I must say I’m pretty happy rn! Thanks for all the advice guys!

Update: did the empty box thing and they opened an investigation. Said it’ll take til Tuesday. I’m feeling pretty confident tho bc when they said they opened an investigation I called and sounded like a pissed off Karen. Expressed that I didn’t pay $300 for an empty box

I was thinking about it and if you made an online order and did a DNA and Sephora or Ulta just resent your order, it would probably look sus if you returned everything through the mail. But if you can go into the actual store to return what they resent you I think you’d be fine.

I’ve read into it and it looks they don’t give your money back, they just resend your order. Ulta is pretty much the same except sometimes they give you a gift card instead

So my question is doesn’t amazon take pics now when they drop off items? I’ve really been wanting to do this for a Nintendo switch or air pods but I’m scared they’ll open an investigation

Honestly I love Friday the 13th. I was just curious what people were thinking on here, although I am a little superstitious but not when it comes to Friday the 13th lol

I used to work at a Target and for some of the electronics they would just hand it to you and you would pay at a normal register. It would have a spider wrap on it or been in a case. But you could remove this. I went to the target by my house and they would make you pay at electronics so you might have to bounce around til you find one. The target I worked at was a super target, idk if that makes a difference. However, one day I went to the target by my place as soon as they opened and no one was in electronics but the cases were unlocked, just had to slid the glass and I took a laptop. Hope this helps
