At This Target, 50% Off And Free Are Pretty Much The Same Thing

freecleanerGetting a cleaning product for free when you buy a broom or mop is a pretty good deal, and so is getting one for half off. The problem at this Target is that they can’t decide what deal they want to give you.

“50% isn’t the same as free…” wrote reader Jim when he sent us this picture. No. no, it isn’t.

We wrote to Target to ask whether the promotion is for a free cleaner or a cleaner at 50% off. Apparently Target isn’t sure either, or maybe they’re a little preoccupied.
