YMMV with the local police.
its arguable because what do you pay for at hometown buffet? just the food? no. part of the price includes the use of a plate to get food. there is no stipulated time frame for how long a customer can hold onto a plate, right?

and ill argue the same applies to beverage cups. so this leads me to ask... do hometown buffets have icees? if so, fuggedabout target!

but meh, you do have a point

No, no, no, no! The all-you-can-eat benefits of the buffet apply only for the duration in which you are physically inside the restaurant. Once you step outside, game over. So, do what I do: spend the night hiding in an air duct in the bathroom, then simply resume your dining experience when they re-open the next day. Believe me, you'll have worked up another appetite by that time anyway!

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

That's not too far from the truth....when my folks come visit, we go to Golden Corral for breakfast on Sunday, around 930 or 1000....eat a bunch, then sit around the table visiting till they put out lunch and we're hungry again. It's not quite that obvious, maybe we go at around 1000-1030, so by the time we're ready for our second trip, they're already working on putting lunch out. The manager makes an announcement, something like "Please feel free to enjoy our lunch offerings" so it's not like they don't know people do that.
We don't stay till dinner though.

^Same here sorta. A good friend and I meet about once every month or three at a local "mall" with a independent theater and an Old Country Buffet. We try to plan getting to the buffet at around 3 or 3:30, because the price shoots up about $4 at 4pm. So we get to explore the lunch menu, and the dinner stuff for our 2nds. We've never spent more than perhaps 75 minutes total in there though.

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

You guys are lucky! There was a pretty good buffet outside the New Orleans area I used to enjoy when I lived there (King Buffet, I think), but they didn't let the lunch crowd get away with staying through dinner at 4pm, at least not the afternoon my wife and I went there for lunch. The manager stepped into the middle of the room right at 4pm and announced that if anyone who came in for lunch wanted to stay for the dinner buffet, they'd have to choke up the extra dollar. We left soon after anyway, it's not like the dinner offerings (in our opinion) were that superior to the lunch offerings. It might have become a seafood dinner buffet on weekends, in which case I can see their point; otherwise, it just seems rather greedy.

You've been here 4 years, had to have seen that term thousands of times, and are just asking now?

I have seen "YACT" etc loads of times (and found out it's meaning) but this I might have seen this before but never worried what it meant. Also I couldn't guess. I would have assumed it has something to do with stores but none of those letters resemble anything. I mean these is no F (for free) S (for store).

One of the "M"s could be "moaning" I suppose!

Also you could have just said what it meant. Then again I could have googled the answer!

Thanks rexinnih.
What exactly does that mean? That you may agree with the OP or what?

I didn't answer because rex had beat me to it.

It means that your experience in the store may be different. Just because you find something at a certain price, or they accept your pricematch, or whatever, doesn't mean that I'll have the same experience.

Thanks, like I said I may have seen it but never worried about it before.

Like most people on this thread, this has to be one of the best ever!

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

I wasn't sure whether to create another thread for this or not.

Today, I had lunch in a Subway that was located just inside my local Wal-mart. Their drink machine had a sign on it that if you left the store and returned for a refill you would be charged 55 cents. Refills while you remained in Subway would continue to be free. Of course, YMMV.
