Sorry, I know this, but I'm arguing with myself... Does BestBuy pricematch a BOGO50%O deal?

They should. It worked for me once back in the Christmas season of 2009 when TRU was having a B1G150%O. They don't do B2G1F though. I was denied earlier this year when I tried to PM that deal from Target.

On a side note, kinda bummed that this deal isn't going to be active next, next week when Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 comes out. Then again, I doubt my Target will even carry a copy of that...

It's pretty much B1G1 50% off all games they just have the disclamer in the print to let people know it's not limited to the ad items otherwise they'd have to show/list all the titles the currently have it stock.


Are you sure? Last time they ran a similar deal, they literally tagged each individual game that qualified. The plastic jails were a sea of tags. There are several hundred games among those various platforms, not just 100 and it would seem like if it was B1G1 50% on every game they would just put that in the ad. Something like "every 360, PS3, PC game in stock is B1G150% off."

I wonder if the 20% off accessories stacks with 10% employee discount plus 5% target card?

On a side note i still have my 100 gc coupon i dont think im going to use it.

I wonder if we can buy the ps3 get the gift card exchange it for the black ops bundle since itll probably show the same amount.

There's also the possibility that the coupon won't even stack with the $60 promo anymore.

..."and this is why we can't have nice things"

There is pages of posts about this on SD. Good luck.... :roll:

I'm having a hard enough time getting the $100 coupon to work by itself. The cashier is willing to accept it but the scanner won't read the barcode anymore and when the cashier is manually entering the coupon code it still doesn't come up. The only way that the coupon has been accepted problem free is going to customer service to have them do it.

Buy black ops, get codmw2 for free, and then get another game for half off? I'm basically trying to stack these deals...lol

so the question is, as the consoles are in the ad for their usual price, is there no e3 price drop? or would it not be announced in the ad anyways and would just suddenly happen in store?

My gut feeling is they want to see the sales jump based off E3 gaming news & ride out the father's day holiday bump first, then announce the drops towards months end.

They should. It worked for me once back in the Christmas season of 2009 when TRU was having a B1G150%O. They don't do B2G1F though. I was denied earlier this year when I tried to PM that deal from Target.

per policy no, very YMMV.

Does target stock more than 150-175 titles? There game section is small & alot of the cells in the plastic jails are empty.

Looking more at the B1G1 50%, would like to find more info on what games qualify... probably fine print on previously purchased items... blah blah. Just going to do a return rebuy then.

Not sure if I'm biting on this or not. Two $60 games for close to $80 (15% off for me) is intriguing, but A) not sure if there's a whole lot I'm interested in paying that much for and B) my money this paycheck may go to an air conditioner. Sucks how this check and my next check are going to be very low due to transferring stores.

I dont know I just looked at their policy. Is does not apply to free items but the 50% off would still apply. I have never had a problem with it either.

when will target and most retailers include the 250gb xbox 360 in these gift card offers? I dont want the 4g version and I would assume most people feel the same. The price points of the 250 gb Xbox and the Ps3 160 are the same, so it would make more since.

And no, i dont want to use the gc toward the purchase of a 250gb hd add on.

A friend of mine who used to be a team leader at the electronics section of a Target here said that PSN cards should count as an accessory. Could be different depending on the Target though.

Hey, fellow CAGs, since I already own all Call of Duty games, is there any way to get Black Ops + MW2 for free and then later exchange those games for any other titles?

Also, I bit the bullet and got a 160GB from Best Buy with the $50 GC. Would they adjust the price to match Target's offer (and give me another $10 GC) or should I just return it and get a new PS3 from Target? It's still sealed.

Actually, they do. At lunch I happened to do a rough count just of the Wii plastic prisons and there were about 125 different in-stock titles just in that section. I would assume the total game count in a larger store is probably 300-400 unique titles among all of the platforms. As such, I would assume this will be very specifically limited to particular titles and clearance and stuff already on price cut won't be in the mix. I hope I'm wrong, but assuming everything is included is pure wishful thinking right now.

I'm pretty sure Amazon and Best Buy have had that promotion recently.
