PRIZE DRAWING: Because I Love Target, Even Though They Have Slightly Higher Prices Than Other Big-Box Stores

Target has plastic carts

I go to Target a lot.

I know my nearest Target store so well that you could tell me a product to find, blindfold me, and I’ll bring that product to you within 10 minutes, while causing hundreds of dollars in damages and probably accidental groping as my hands feel what’s in front of me.

I have a deep fondness for Target because I can almost always find something new to review, I love their clearance shelves, and they have sexy, curvy red carts. Sure, Target is a little pricer than other big-box stores, but it’s the only place I can buy Hello Kitty Duct Tape.

So to celebrate my love of Target, The Impulsive Buy will be giving away a $25 Target gift card to one lucky reader.

To enter The Impulsive Buy’s Target gift card drawing, leave a comment with THIS post. I don’t care what you say in your comment, but it would be nice if you tried to convince me I’m wrong about Target by saying something bad about it or support my belief that Target is 1,000,000 times better than Kmart.

Please don’t forget to fill out the email field because I’ll be emailing the winner for his or her mailing address. The Impulsive Buy will stop accepting entries on Friday, October 28, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one comment allowed per person, and it’s only open to U.S. residents who are at least 18 years old.

For those of you who have a Twitter account, you can get an additional entry by tweeting the following by Friday, October 28, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time:

@theimpulsivebuy I wonder if Kmart stores dream about being Target stores.

So just copy, paste, and tweet. Only one tweet per Twitter account.

Good luck!

  1. The only thing I dislike about my target is that when they upgraded to include groceries, they didn’t go full-size like those in nearby towns. I need more archer farms product in my life.

  2. Target is by far the best retailer out there. I can never walk in and just get what I’m there for, that would be too easy. Instead I travel the clearance sections, food, eletronics and end up with way more stuff than I went in for. Target has been taking my money for many moons, and Kmart can never compare…

  3. I prefer Target to my local Kmart, mainly because it’s so much CLEANER and smells a bazillion times better… and they actually have things on the shelves, instead of several rows of nothing, or ripped open bags of chips, or dented packages…. yes. Target FTW.

  4. My argument that Target is better than K-Mart is that I was not actually aware that K-Mart is still in business. People still shop there?!

  5. Loveeee Impulsive Buy and Target!! They certainly do have higher prices but I also find more variety. Loveeee their private label-Archer Farms-Market Pantry too!! 😉

  6. Target can be made to sound fancy and French, and is therefore about 1,000,000 times more awesome than K-Mart…which really sounds disgusting no matter which language you say it in.

  7. That sure is some odd target shopping carts in the pic. I wish my target had that I would feel all space aged.

  8. i actually love kmart- no one hip ever shops there, and so i never have a problem finding old lady beige heels or white loafers in my size.

  9. Walmart is better than Target because they’re open 24 hours and they are cheaper. And our Walmart is “Super”, while our Target is not.

    Also, I like shopping there in spite of all the self-righteous people who refuse to do so. That being said, I’ll gladly take a $25 gift card off your hands. Anything good enough for Marvo is good enough for me.

  10. When I was in college, the Target closest to campus had a TACO BELL inside! It was amazing. Target + Taco Bell = L O V E

  11. target is awesome but when they dump their location for new digs across town and leave their old building just chilling, it’s kind of an eyesore. just sayin.

  12. I hear that some people like to shop at Target because they can pick up better looking chicks there than at Walmart.

  13. I love target mostly because it provides an alternative to the only other box store in the area: a particularly nasty Walmart in a bad part of town.

  14. I’m foregoing persuasion for favor of the old Mitch Hedberg joke:
    “I walked into Target, but I missed. I think the entrance to Target should have people splattered all around. And, when I finally get in, the guy says, ‘Can I help you?’ ‘Just practicing.'”

  15. I’d like to think that the rounded corners on the shopping carts do less damage when they plow into the side of my car.

  16. I have no idea what a Target is but I will now begin to search for this enchanted place at the behest of my favorite blog. : )

  17. I usually shop at KMart because the closest Target is an hour away, but I’d find a way to get there if I had a gift card 🙂

  18. The almond/cashew/peanut butter and superior candy selection are worth the near-death, but convenient, bike trip, or safer, more time-consuming public transit ride across the city.

  19. Wait, people still shop at K-Mart?

    (I like to think of Target as Wal-Mart for people with class)

  20. Is Target better than K-Mart? I don’t know, but there are at least 3 Target stores in the vicinity of my house, and I don’t even know where the nearest KMart is. Target gift card? If I win it my dear old mom would get a Christmas gift upgrade!

  21. Target is my happy place. It’s where I go whenever I am grumpy. It is the best place ever and I think Santa must live there.

  22. Every Kmart in the cities I’ve lived in have been run down or just plain vacant. Target was selling boxes of Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry 3 for 8 dollars so they win by default.

  23. I might be the only person in America who has never been to Target, so you should give me the gift card so that I can check out what all the hype is about. Also, I am a college student who is broke and hungry 😉 Support educational advancement! Especially since I am studying nutrition!

  24. I enjoy Target. And not just because I used to work for Walmart, and it didn’t end well, no sir.
