Target Shoppers! Possible Refund on Fieldcrest Egyptian Cotton Sheets Purchases

Fieldcrest SheetsAttention Target shoppers!

Did you purchase Fieldcrest Egyptian Cotton 500-thread count sheets between August 2014 and July 2016?

If so, Target is offering a full refund in the form a gift card for select purchases. After an extensive investigation into the manufacturing company Welspun Global Brands, they became aware that the company had made sheets labeled as “Egyptian cotton” but were actually made with cotton of the non-Egyptian sort. Neither Target nor Fieldcrest had any idea that this was going on.

There is no safety issue if you choose to continue using this product. However, if you did purchase these Fieldcrest Egyptian Cotton sheets during the dates listed above, you can submit a web form here to request a full refund that will be sent you in the form of a gift card.

Target says it learned last month that 750,000 sheets and pillowcases supplied by Welspun India were labeled as Egyptian cotton, but were made from some other type, and pulled the items from its stores, Bloomberg was the first to report. Egyptian cotton has extra-long fibers that are associated with high quality products, which means some shoppers are willing to pay a premium for those items.

Go here for more details.

(Thanks, Lena!)

      You bet!

    Thanks! I have purchase many of these and for the price they weren’t lasting long and my white sheets were discoloring after little use (and one wash). I have torn 1 & two more are piling. These were not cheap. I’m submitting only what I have recently purchased as I’ve gotten use out of the previous ones. At this thread count I expected better quality. I hope going forward I can count on quality.

    How do I know if the fieldcrest Egyptian sheets that I purchased are the ones they are offering refunds for — I don’t have a receipt or the number off the sheet. One set is striped and the other solid so they don’t really fit the description of the pattern.

    • Laura

      I have two sets and both striped. I found the vn # on tags on pillow cases and each sheet separate. I do love these sheets!

    • M

      Check tags on sheets, mine are Fieldcrest Luxary the VN number is sewn in on the back. I don’t have my receipt anymore either and I don’t know if it’s one of the recalled ones but I submitted the form and it said they’d review/respond within 45 days.

  4. Kristi

    Wow! There is quite a list of product recalls on Target’s website. I found a few grocery items I purchased but can’t prove I did without the receipts. I will be tossing them for sure! Thank you for sharing! I didn’t realize so many products get recalled without a press release from the manufacturer on their Facebook pages & websites.

      If you paid with RedCard they can pull the record on their end. I returned a gift I had purchased for someone 2 months after purchase and was refunded original amount because their system finds it.

      • Katrina

        Their system only tracks for 90 days, though, I believe.

  5. Holly

    The receipt is not required to submit this form.

  6. Maura

    My sheets vn# is faded and I don’t have the receipts. Can anyone share their vn# for king size sheets? TIA

    • Andrea

      😒

    • Sara Hartford

      You don’t hAve to enter the vn#

  7. ❤️my_lineman

    I actually received an email from target last week about this saying that they had record I may have purchased these sheets! I was actually really disappointed in these sheets. Mine were white and After I washed them for the first time (there was nothing in there with them- I checked and rechecked) they have a strange faint pink/orange look to them for some reason. It’s really faint and you have to really look but there is no reason these should have done that…

    My VN number is on the tag in the pillowcase, on the inside. It’s on the back side of the tag that says Fieldcrest, at the very bottom. HTH

    • julie

      HI, target is asking me for the VN and my queen set is with my daughter at college and my king set is faded. Can I please have your VN#? Please! I greatly appreciate it

  9. Kimberly B.

    I was so disappointed in these sheets especially for the price! I submitted for this a couple of days ago fingers crossed!

    FYI
    For those interested in affordable luxury cotton sheets, the Pima/Supima (American version of Egyptian Cotton) sheets at Costco are in fact Pima/Supmia cotton. They are using a company that applies a DNA marker to the cotton at harvest and then track and test that cotton through every stage of production, including testing the final product to verify that it contains only pima cotton. Can’t speak for any other sheets Costco may sell, but the pima sheets are in fact pima sheets. Didn’t see them on their website though, so check with your local stores.

  11. Cathy

    Can someone tell me how to find on Target’s site. I must be missing something. Thanks

    • Michele

      Use the link that Collin posted.

  12. Susan

    Maybe this explains why they felt like sandpaper! I returned mine, though, because they were awful

  13. Beth Ann S

    Target asked for the vn number or receipt. I got a email today. Sheets were poor quality and now I am out. It said you needed no receipt and now you do that’s wrong.

    • Helen

      When do you submit the claim? I haven’t heard anything and I submitted mine the first week it was out. Wonder if anyone else is still waiting?

      • Stephanie

        Submitted the first week and I got a email this morning from guest relations.

    I called today cause Im just now seeing this but I have what 2 sets of King and a California King does anyone have a vn I can use when I called today they are requesting a vn and want me to call back. Does anyone have a vn number I can use I told the guy on the phone I didn’t have to provide that anway I told them they were faded these sheets get washed every week and they’ve hardly held up. I’m so mad right now can anyone help me out?

    • Julianna

      I’m in the same situation! I bought 2 king and 2 queen, 2 years ago. The king ripped on the elastic part so I donated them to thrift store and queen set I let my daughter take when she moved out. I also need a vn#. I know someone has them. I’ve also asked anyone but no luck. I hope you have better luck. Let me know if you find it!

  35. Cori thomas

    I’m in the same boat! I submitted my request during the first days and no response. I bought several sets! Soooo disappointed in Target!

    • Gezelle

      Have patience, I felt as you do. Mine came yesterday.

  36. Helen

    Got mine today, $281.94, three sets of king size. Have red card, guess they were looking it up.

  37. Lynn

    Got my refund today $279.96

  38. Jess

    I put a request for recall on August 25 and had not heard anything. No email or mail recieved, so I called target today. I was told that my gift card was sent out on 10/18 so I was glad to finally hear that my request was processed. I forgot to ask the amount so that will be a surprise. Anyways I was told that I everyone should be notified or sent a gift card by Nov 1st. I did not enter the VN number on my refund request and customer service didn’t need them since it was already processed. If you made a request and did not get any mail/email I think you will get something soon. Good luck 😉

    • Gezelle

      PATIENCE THEY’RE COMING.

      • Stephanie

        Any one respond to the email and hear anything

        • Julie

          I did but I still haven’t heard anything!

          • Stephanie

            I called and they are still working on claims

    • JOY

      Hi Jess,Any luck with your claim.I called as well told mi Esq was mailed out on 10/18 still haven’t yet received it,my friend Re I ever hers today.but I submitted my first .

    • Angel

      how can you call. What telephone number did you use. I tried calling yesterday and got the run around no body knew anything. Said no telephone number to call

    • Julie

      I got mine yesterday. I responded to the emails back in October also. They were asking for a vn # and it was completely faded and rhey kept saying my claim would be denied. I fought them with everything I had. Sent several nasty emails and it worked. Anyone who didn’t have a vn, don’t give up. Put up a fight like I did! I had 5 sets so i got $516!

  39. JOY

    Hi Jess any luck with your claim.I called as well,was told mines was mailed out on 10/18 as well.no luck for me still no gift card.my friend received hers 10/25 in I submit my claim first

  40. Stephanie

    my friend finally got his gift card today… He responded to the email from guest relations back in October.

  41. stephanie

    They have mailed my gift card three times (or so they say) and I have not received it any time, they always ask my address to confirm and they have it correct so I don’t understand. The first one went out the middle of october. The most recent one mailed out 12/16/2016. This is a nightmare 🙁 And when you call they send you to 8 different departments if its after 4:00 p.m. The people they send you too are in the Philippians (seriously one lady finally told me that and added no one in her department has heard of anything to do with a recall) I have spent a total of 5 hours on the phone. Hopefully it actually comes soon 🙁

    • Beatrice

      This also happened to me but I finally got my gift card, don’t give up!!!

      • Stephanie

        Called back today and was told they “dropped the ball again” and forgot to send the replacement card out on the 16th like they told me they did. Then they ended up saying they would issue a egift card for the trouble. My gift card they were mailing me was $389.14…the egift card is $129!! I’m so livid the customer service reps have absolutely no idea what there doing 🙁

  42. Jaymey Wink

    I just called because I found the email in my spam. The link doesn’t work. Called CS, they basically said there was nothing they could do, because it’s past the time to file a claim. Ironic how I get around 5 Target emails daily, and THIS ONE goes to spam. Not happy 1 bit. I bought 3 sets of these crappy sheets that faded as soon as they were washed. Target really dropped the ball with this one. I hope this becomes a class action suit.
