Didn't get a chance to see the ad scan before it was taken down - is this a "limited selection" type deal, or ANY game?

Want to get Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3 (Windows) and something else. If anything, I seriously doubt they'll make the Windows version valid, like usual :/

Planning on grabbing: Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, and either NBA 2k12, Forza 4 or Arkham City. Need to guess which one of those final games will be cheap on black friday. I'm assuming NBA and Forza will most like be 30/40

The adscan showed games for all platforms and different price-points and included wording that said the B2G1 included thousands of other titles as well so this is likely gonna be for all video games except for pre-orders, etc.

Last time this deal was around the receipt printed out each game at $40 a piece so I'd imagine if you brought one back to return or exchange then they will only give you $40 back and you pay the difference.

Actually I did return a game that I changed my mind on and was refunded $40 assuming all games you buy are 60 a piece etc.

I saw copies at both Target and Best Buy in the Los Angeles area today at lunch, so it's out there.


This great news, thanks! I will go with RDR GOTY, Kirby's Return, and probably some other $50 title. Any recommendations besides Wii games?

Fyi - Ratchet and Clank all4one includes target exclusive dlc code for quest for booty dl in psn.

Also has anyone seen RDR goty at their target? All I have seen is vanilla copies of the original and separate undead nightmare.

If Amazon does match, it'll probably be one of those B2G1 on select titles kind of deals. (Just my opinion)

Ok this ad says it runs thru the 15th. Does that mean we can go in on the 15th and it will still work? If this is true then we can hold out to the 15th and then skyrim, halo anniversary, lotr war of the north, and others.

I guess if that won't work just wait till the 14th buy some games and return them on the 15th for the new releases.

Umm the 5th not 15th. That would be one weird ad to run for over 2 weeks and end during the middle of a third week.

Ah... That explains it. Damn. Its 4:00 am here. I'm trying to read small print on a small phone in the dark and with only 2 hours of sleep.

Carry on folks nothing to see here. Keep moving shows over. Lol

Ok I did some figuring.

Buy 2 get one free at target with two games returned = 1 game at 33.

Buy 2 get one free with two returns = 33

33 + 33 = 2 games for 66 ( the price of 1 new)

Done again 66+66 = 4 games for 132 ( round about what two new games would've cost)

This is alot if leg work though. Your going to have to buy and return. It would probably help to do this wirh a partner like your wife.

That's my suspicion, unless it got delayed. I haven't seen an actual copy of Kirby's Return to Dreamland for the Nintendo Wii at Sears, 2 Kmarts, or Best Buy. Could be I just didn't notice the game or my local stores were sold out.



Blame Nintendo for "releasing" games on a Monday. It fucks up the release schedule for many retailers on the east coast.

BF3 is out and doesn't come around every year. You guys should pick it up; I think you'd be impressed.

I think your lack of sleep has clouded your thinking. The $60 games become $40. When you go to return them you get $40 back. So you would pay $80 for two games, or $40 for one game.

Target bundles the items for the B2G1 deal and the return value becomes $40 for each item. Somebody above explained it much better with the 1/3 of the cheapest game being applied to each item in the bundle.

Odd that the ethics crew [TM] hasn't chimed in to preach about how people are ripping off Target by returning the games.

by now any retailer should know how to handle a B2G1 free to prevent return shenanigans.

You should get $40 credit, not an even exchange.

if they offer even exchanges then it's obviously their policy and something they're offering, so no need for "preaching".

Everyone who joins the CAG XBox One Conga Line from now until my 11 referrals are met are entered into a drawing to win a FREE $60 game from me! So get going - the Gamefly referral costs nothing, and others are as low as $1!

To answer your question directly... You would owe $20 to buy MW3.

So your total for the deal would be BF3 $40, Uncharted $40, and MW3 $60 = $140

Does buying two copies of the same game work? I was about to pre-order two copies of Uncharted 3, one for myself, one for my brothers. Then I saw this, figured I might as well get a free game out of the deal.

Removed to stay on topic.

BF3 - $60 - Too expensive for a game I'll only play for a week before MW3 comes out. Although I will pick it up eventually.
MLB 2k11 - $40 - I usually don't pay more then $25 for a sports game.
Homefront - $30 - recently dropped in price ($20 @ Kmart the week of the 6th)

$100 for 3 games ($33 a piece) Not bad but I I'll wait.

Off-topic: Neither does MW3. MW3 and Black Ops were made by two different groups.

And yet there was still an annual game. Pretty sure BF2 came out six years ago and BC2 1.5; what's COD's excuse?

I can answer that. Who cares! Everyone and anyone can have the COD/BF debate for hours/days/weeks/years and it still doesn't change the fact that people like one of the two games or both. Let's stick to the real topic at hand, the B2G1 Target offer.

How does this work if I wanted to get 6 games? Do I have to make 2 separate transactions or will it work with one? Not a big deal either way just curious if anyone else has done this? As of now I'm planning on getting Uncharted 3, Batman AC, NBA 2K12, NHL 12, Fifa 12, battlefield 3 and/or rage or something else.

That's probably the worst way to make use of this deal. Not only are you paying for the two more expensive games and getting the cheapest game for free. But the game you'd be getting free isn't even worth $10. The way Target discounts the games, you'd be paying $50 for BF3, $30 for MLB and $20 for Homefront.

The best option (as mentioned several times) is to buy sets of 3 of same priced games.
