Wow, good YMMV price match because Target's policy specifically excludes anything that involves coupon usage from what I remember.


Well I noticed the coupon itself did not say "Not valid with other offers" or anything like that. Plus IMO this isn't a standard coupon, I get it for giving them two of my games so I think it may be allowed, but not sure if other people had success or not with this. I was out for the last 8 hours.

On a side note I found a really nice Vita game case that holds 32 games (was from Vita starter kit and it was mismarked as a PSP Go case so I got it for $2.00 ($1.80 after PUR)

So for $7 in GS credit and $20 cash I got a Vita game, vita case, and MGSHD, a pretty good deal if I do say so myself.

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.

I do sometimes. Between the crappy 'eco' cases and the reduction/elimination of manuals, you're getting less and less for that $60 or whatever you're spending on games nowadays.

That is, unless you buy the Elder Scrolls games, in which case you get a manual that's the size of a small paperback book. At least they know how to put out a game anymore(even if it is glitchy as shit when it first releases:razz:). What does not including a manual and using those freakin' 'eco' cases really save the publishers anyway....$.05?


Well let say it save .50 per game. That means over the year it would save millions a year for a large publisher like EA.

Just got back from trading in more stuff. I took in 12 games and they refused 4 because of no manual. I brought them in just in case they would a-OK it, but the guy at the desk seemed nice and cool so i didn't even try to push him into it, just said pass on to the next game.

I had 3 games that had pretty damn heavy scratching though, and the guy took them. The condition is completely YMMV from person to person. He also took Donkey Konga for Gamecube even though it says it has to include the bongos on the site.

The coupons would only ring up 1 per game so I ended up getting 4, just gonna turn around to BB/GS and trade them in. I did ask the guy to try 4 coupons for 2 39.99 games, but they would only ring up twice, so there ya go.

There is no system wide ban on it, it must just be your target... 3 different employees told me no limit, and all coupons worked on the same transaction (they all had the same discount codes as well)

Is the employee telling you no? or the system?

Interesting, I will try again tomorrow. So I assume some of you guys still were able to get multiple coupons under the same id? I just thought since my info is in the system, I can't do multiple copies.

No. I haven't. I only have a PS3 as of now, so I haven't been paying attention to games that have come out only on 360 or 360/PC.

EDIT: WHOA!! That's one thick manual and another manual-esque book with it that's just as thick or THICKER. :shock: But that's the UK/overseas version(as you can tell by the PEGI-18 on the front cover). The U.S. version is probably some thin manual crap, just like the God Of War III "Ultimate" Edition was all digital download junk vs. it's UK cousin, which had all physical discs for the documentaries and soundtrack and also had the God Of War Collection in the big ol' plastic Pandora's Box replica.;)

:lol: I wonder if one copy of Rage for PS3 and one for 360 would work? Technically it's not the same game on the same platform. Although I only have one Rage(PS3) and I still wanna play through it.

Don't forget about :ps3::360:Medal Of Honor, that was $5 after @Gamer coupon a couple of months ago too.;)

For those interested in reading, here's my story:



Went to GameStop and bought 4 $2.99 games for $12 total. Then went to a Target in a neighboring city since apparently they were the only ones with a Target Mobile. Traded in 2 of them for a $20 coupon and got God of War 3. Got my friend to trade in the other 2, but they wouldn’t take them since they thought the discs were too scratched. Went back to GameStop and exchanged those 2 for 2 others that qualified and then made another trip to that same Target. Got the second coupon, but they didn’t have any games that I wanted. Drove out 10-ish miles to the next closest Target, used the coupon to get the God of War Collection. All in all, 4 hours of my day, $32 for both games.



Long story short: $32 for God of War Collection + God of War 3. Thanks CAG!

holy crap, I've been looking at my collection seeing what crappy games I could ditch and I just realized I could just buy another copy of homefront. duh. (it's not crappy, just cheap.)

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I took in 5 games just in case they wouldn't accept certain titles. I was able to trade in 4 of them for 2 coupons and the guy working there ended up buying the 5th game for $10 (FlingSmash).

I traded Madden 07 and 09, NBA 2k7, and Fifa 08 for Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition and Dead Rising 2 Off the Record.

the search thing is broken right now. stores with target mobile are ones where you can sign up for phone plans. theres a little kiosk next to where all the new phones are on display. the person that works there wears a black shirt unlike the red that regular target employees wear.

So for $7 in GS credit and $20 cash I got a Vita game, vita case, and MGSHD, a pretty good deal if I do say so myself.


Nah I meant the fact that getting MGSHD and whatever Vita game it was down to 30 required a coupon on Toys R Us's side. Guess them no longer having physical print ads helped out in that regard lol

It's the employee. If they read the fine print it does say 1 per customer on the promo details. Mine showed it to me on the screen, but others have reported that the system will allow multiple trade in's. The risk is that with ID's, the system is no doubt tracking activity and could lead to a ban.
