Target is offering a $3k reward for a “buzz” blanket for its customers in the US and UK, as part of its US holiday season promotion.
The offer comes in the wake of a spate of shootings in the United States, and also comes just a week after US President Donald Trump pledged to “bomb the shit” out of ISIS and the Islamic State group (ISIL).
On Wednesday, the retailer launched a $1,000 reward for customers to help the FBI solve the mystery of the alleged shooter in a shooting spree that left seven dead in California on Saturday, as well as the killing of a young black man.
“The #BULLSHITS, the #BOTANICS, and the #DARKERSHIT” was the caption on the retailer’s Instagram account, along with a photo of a large blue bag in which the words “TARGETS BUSTED!” were written.
The campaign features a large number of pictures of the large bag, which is now covered in a green blanket.
On the campaign page, Target is also offering a “special BOTH BANDS” bundle, which offers the same price as the other bundle, but includes a blanket as well.
The UK retailer has been particularly active in the past few weeks in its US promotions, including an offer to buy a “BOTENIC” T-shirt for just £5.
“Target has always been a place where we can be a part of the conversation and we continue to do so,” a spokesperson said.
“We’re offering this offer in recognition of our efforts to help make our community safer.
Target also announced on Wednesday that it had teamed up with US airline Virgin America to offer “FREE SHIPPING” to US customers with a qualifying travel history.””
We have worked closely with local police in communities across the US, including in Texas, New Mexico, Georgia, and Florida, to help keep communities safe.”
Target also announced on Wednesday that it had teamed up with US airline Virgin America to offer “FREE SHIPPING” to US customers with a qualifying travel history.
“For US customers: FREE SHIPPED to your address, regardless of where you live or work, within 24 hours of your order,” Target said.
