A major glitch on Target.com had thousands of customers and deal hunters flock to the website this evening, to quickly purchase what seemed to be free money.
The glitch, that has now been fixed, was going viral on social media and on deal sites, telling people to run and take advantage of it, although acknowledging that orders would likely be cancelled.
One Lakewood resident told LNN that he had purchased over $50,000 worth of gift cards, hoping that the orders would be fulfilled.
Many customers were disappointed by cancelled orders, or in some cases, when Target sent them $14.99 gift cards instead of $500 ones that were purchased.
It remains to be seen if Target will refund these orders or honor them.
