We have a lot to say about why Target Pickup is one of our favorite ways to do a Target run — but the bullseye just gave us some incredible new reasons.
Not only can you pick from more than 250,000 different products to be placed right in your trunk, but now Pickup includes Target returns and Starbucks orders. Starbucks orders!
Here’s what you need to know:
Target Pickup will include Starbucks orders starting Fall 2022.
Listen, not even my local Starbucks will run a coffee out to my car. But starting Fall 2022, we’ll be able to add Starbucks cafe items to Pickup orders.
Of course, this only applies if you have a Starbucks inside your Target store. But most of us do.
And you can take advantage of all the Target Circle deals on Starbucks drinks when they happen.
Soon you’ll make your Target returns right from the parking lot.
Later this year, Target shoppers will be able to process their returns right from the Drive Up area.
It’s unclear right now whether you’ll have to pair the returns with a Pickup order, but no matter what, you won’t need to schedule an appointment to use this service.
Brush up on your knowledge of Target return policy, and then look forward to the most wonderfully antisocial returns process ever.
Look out for a bigger selection of Pickup substitution items, too.
Sometimes Target doesn’t have exactly the item you order. When that happens, you have the choice to let them substitute the original item for a “backup item.”
In addition to adding Starbucks and returns to Pickup, Target is rolling out a larger number of backup items to their ordering system.
Target has claimed 98% success rate on their substitutions, but it looks like they’re trying to boost that.
