Auto leasing deals abound these days, with offers that often seem too good to be true. How about a well-equipped Honda Accord for $250 a month with no down payment or any other drive-off fees? Or better yet, $199 a month for a Chevrolet Malibu? So, what's the catch? There isn't any if you know what you're getting into. There are always details. You need top-tier credit to qualify. You pay a penalty if you turn that Honda in with more than 36,000 miles. And the payment is not $250 a month because of that little matter of tax. It is more like $275, depending on where you live.

A spokeswoman told Today.com on Thursday the retailer was sorry for "any discomfort" and never intended to offend.

Frank Ocean's album “Channel Orange” already is one of the most widely discussed and highly praised albums of the year, but don't look to buy at a Target store when the physical CD is released next week. The Minneapolis-based retail giant has announced it won't stock the album, which has generated massive interest since the R&B singer revealed recently that some songs were inspired by a gay relationship he once had. But after initially suggesting that Target's decision may have been related to Ocean's sexual orientation, his manager, Christian Clancy, has backed down and said Target's decision was a response to the release of Ocean's album a week early in digital form exclusively on iTunes.
