Has anyone activated an iPhone at Target on Black Friday before? Is it a nightmare?
I actually missed out on the Walmart phone deal Thursday night last year, so I headed to Target Friday morning with relatively low expectations of actually getting one but figured "couldn't hurt to ask" (hey - $250 GC is still better than nothing, right? lol) so I wandered back to the electronics department. Got lucky. Was looking for an Xs 256GB, ideally in gold. They actually still had that available. Added my name to the list, gave me an estimated wait time, and said they would text me when it was my turn and I then had 30 mins to return to the counter (I mentioned I'd be walking next door to Meijer to grab a few items to kill time).
The process was a bit slow once I got back to the counter but that was due to system tech problems across the board, not Target's issue specifically. The Target employee I was working with was, I'm sure, grateful that I had "packed my patience", so to speak, because I pretty much figured there might be tech glitches with thousands upon thousands of people getting new phones essentially all at once. It also helped that I wasn't in a hurry to be anywhere else by that point. I did my best to keep a smile on my face (or at least in my overall attitude) as we worked through the process. In the end, I left with my new phone, a shiny new $250 GC, and hopefully gave the poor associate something good to remember as she worked through what I am certain is a stressful time for them.
For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"
