I was informed by our Target Mobile representative that starting this Sunday (4/22) if you trade in any two games you will receive a $20 off coupon for any video game priced over $29.99. The text on the flyer I read didn't seem to argue it so it may be a good time to unload some old sports games and what not.

And yes, I see this posted in the Target weekly ad post, but that doesn't seem to be generating a lot of traffic.


Edit by Io: Critically important info ripped from the Target weekly ad post that needs to be here:

Only at stores with Target Mobile. Hours vary by location. Visit www.Target.nextworth.com for store hours and location. Guest will be given a $20 coupon good towards the purchase of any videogame priced $29.99 or higher. Coupon must be redeemed for game at the time of trade-in transaction, as coupon is only valid on that day. Discs must not be cracked or heavily scratched. Original artwork, case and manual required to receive coupon.

4/24/12 Update:
-Deal is still running and as suggested any two games that are complete with manual and case are accepted.
-If the game is not listed on NextWorth's list, a promo code can be applied to accept the game
-The $20 off coupon will expire the same day you received it
-The Target Mobile people are RadioShack employees meaning Target employees can do nothing for you if you are denied for whatever reason

YMMV List:
-Some Target Mobile stations have a restriction on the number of times you can receive the coupon. That is by choice of the manager
-It has been reported this coupon works with PSN Cards/Xbox Live/etc...Coupon reads $20 off $29.99 or greater game so it can be rejected
-It has been reported this coupon can work by buying multiple video game items with a pre tax total of at least $29.99. It can be rejected for the same reason mentioned previously
-You may be able to PM a competitor's ad, but you will need a printed ad. You may still be rejected depending on the manager on duty

Your target needs to have a mobile phone kiosk which would be located in electronics

Just a heads up if you trade in any mobile phone that works you can get a $30 electronics gift card. It should be all target mobiles, but it ends today. I just traded in an old $10 go phone and picked up mw3 with a tru price match .

I was informed by our Target Mobile representative that starting this Sunday (4/22) if you trade in any two games (current gen) you will receive a $20 off coupon for any video game priced over $40. The text on the flyer I read didn't seem to argue it so it may be a good time to unload some old sports games and what not.

And yes, I see this posted in the Target weekly ad post, but that doesn't seem to be generating a lot of traffic.

Woah woah... Details?

Any cell phone that powers on? Is there a limit on the Gift Cards? I have like ten of the Samsung Axxx go phones that I bought from Best buy for like $3 each a few months ago. I would unload those in a heartbeat for a $30 gift card

Because they were $3 a piece and unlocked on AT&T.

There are always trade in programs with minimum values like this to exploit.

I'll have to look into this phone trade-in today. I have some phones that I was going to recycle, but I'll try Target first. I doubt they'll accept these, though, because a couple of them are at least ten years old.

YMMV on the giftcard. I just talked with the mobile representative for the store I work at, and while yes, you do get $30, he is saying that it has to be used towards a new phone. However, it can be any phone, regardless of age and has to be in working condition. Turns on, screen isn't cracked, the basics.

Edit: Just checked with another Target, and they claim it's a giftcard. So I'm going to try at my store first and go from there.

This seems to differ with what the Target weekly ad post says. It claims:

"Save $20 on any game $29.99 and up when you trade in two games (not clear on what titles are eligible, its likely for AAA/high value games)"

So not sure if you can unload old sports games, etc. That sure would be nice though...

Also, I'd be interested to see if this phone trade-in works too. I have a 3-year old LG slider phone that says it has no cash value on Target's Trade-in site. I'd gladly take a $30 gift card for it though in store :lol:

Just called my Target and they said that you need to buy a phone to get a gift card....

EDIT: Looking at the ad online, page 20 of 28 it states the following "save at least $30 on any contract phone when you trade in your working mobile phone"

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Lol.

Thread Summary.

Phone trade in is YMMV as ad seems to say 30$ GC towards a new contract.

Game trade in appears legit, however it is unknown if 99 cent used games will work to net you the 20$ GC.
