Free Timex watch with Target mobile coupon glitch controversy

So unless you've been living under a rock for the past few days, then you would know by now that Target released a mobile accessories BOGO FREE coupon-- when you purchase any watch, sunglasses, or jewelry, you can get one free

Seems good, right?

So what is the controversy surrounding the coupon?

Well, usually when you have a BOGO free coupon, and the items are of two different prices, the lesser priced item usually gets deducted.

However, Target made a huge snafu by coding the coupon to deduct the higher price item, instead of the lower price item.

So here lies the debate: Should I get a free Timex watch or not?

Many people bum-rushed Target's jewelry section looking cheap, clearanced jewelry while also looking for expensive Timex watches, some with a price tag of $54.

A lot of people purchased earrings for under $3 and a $49.99 watch for FREE

While it's not illegal to use the coupon for unintended purposes. I mean, how were we supposed to know that the coupon would auto-deduct the most expensive price, right?

But it is unethical.

I haven't done this deal yet, I'm still in the process of digesting it.

A penny for your thoughts.
