Without dancing around the subject too much, I was banned from Target. They were my number one supplier.
In February I had just started and ordered 6 units and spent about $50 to test things out. The orange line is the units ordered and the bar is the $ ordered. In June, there was some things happened in my personal life that derailed me from ordering at Target. After that passed, I started to ramp up again and things were nice and smooth.
How Did The Ban Happen?
Long story short, I was not taking the slow and steady approach. Each month I was increasing my orders and thought Target did not ban anyone. The only bans I knew were from abusing the redcard discount with buying gift cards with gift cards. I banged out orders every day, some times more than one order a day. The hammer fell in September. My belief is that Target updated the back end when they rolled out the new website and started to apply analytics.
It hurt my online arbitrage business when Target ultimately ended the relationship. At that point, I had ordered about $29,000 and received almost $1600 worth of gift cards back from their promos. I am still struggling without an easy way to order from Target. Best not to mess up your relationship with Target.
