Called the target nearest me (about 5 miles away). They don't have Target mobile. The person answering the phone had never heard of it, and had to ask someone else for help.

She didnt know if other Targets in the area had such a service either. Will try with more phone calls if time allows.

Is the coupon printed out on a register receipt or are they printed on card stock or what? Also has anyone tried them on clearance items that used to be over $29.99 original msrp? I'm wondering if they will work on items below the minimum price point similar to how the b2g1 $19.99 from a few weeks ago worked on all clearance that was originally over $19.99

The coupon is printed on white 8.5x11 copy/multipurpose paper.

Does anyone know if games marked Not For Resale work? I wanna unload Guitar Hero 5 and Warriors of Rock, but I wanna see if anyone has tried trading in games with the Not For Resale label and had success.

I noticed all the Targets in my area that have the mobile are open til 11 pm and 10 pm on Sundays...I too had none show up on the locator.

Traded in Pro Fishing Challenge for xbox and Soul Bubbles DS and picked up Uncharted dual pack with the Dual Shock 3...It was still on clearance for 41.98 so I don't know if would have worked if it was 29.98.

$23.68 out the door minus the two games I had extra copies of for whatever reason.

Oh, the guy wouldnt let me use the disc only games i brought towards the promo...the computer wouldn't let him and he was scared to lie to it.

The coupon dIdn't work at first on the game and controller pack but they overrode it i guess.

It would be awesome to be able to use these on the DS3 bundles and get them for $9.98 or possibly even less tomorrow, as most locations have them in the system at $29.98 (a couple $19.98 - 20.98)

That's what I'm hoping for for tomorrow.:evil::D If so, then I have some return/rebuys to do.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Do they pay more for an unopened copy? Can I transfer credit from a preorder onto a different game?

Best buy's website lists the trade-in value at 18 dollars.


If you bring in an unopened copy, they'll assume it's stolen more often than not.

A simple solution is to open it. No extra trade credit for a "new" copy.

It will work. They don't even look at the UPC. They search for the game the same we do by typing in the title of the game.

Im striking out here it seems. I just remembered I had a few old old oldddd xbox games but I cant find them on targets website through the trade in search. If anybody has better luck the games are:
Original Xbox
Rainbow Six 3
Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30
NHL 07
and MVP Baseball 05

Also I looked up Guitar Hero 3 for 360 but it would only show for PS3. Im guessing they wouldnt take that either?

So lemme get this straight. I can take in any 2 current gen games and I will get $20? Assuming they're complete. Do you take the games to customer service or the electronics area?

Anyone have a list of the cheapest ($.99) GameStop games they will take? Hopefully I can just get them to ring up any complete $.99 game under the promo code if not listed, but I'd prefer to lose as many steps/choke points as possible when I start attempting trades tomorrow. Guess I'll just buy as many $.99 complete and as unscratched as possible games at a couple of gamestops as I can find tomorrow and return any I can't get traded in.

SPLASH!

No Target mobiles are in my area it seems, that's probably why I'm confused. My store sells phones but why would I take games to the phone salesman?

If your store has a phone salesman then it is a Target Mobile location.
The store tracker is broken. You would take games to the phone salesman because that is who will take the games.

If you tried to search using the locator on the website, I don't believe it's working. Also, you would actually complete the trade with the Target Mobile Employee.

From reading this thread on/off throughout the day (since ~p.9), your best bet is to just make sure the title shows up on their site

http://www.target.nextworth.com/

to be eligible. I'm trying to get rid of 'Disney Sing it' (360) cuz my daughter says she's too old for those old songs...She's not even 10 yrs old, LOL.....Unfortunately, it doesn't show up on the Target site so my curse continues, lol.

Yes, I agree. Others have mentioned earlier in the thread that Target coincidentally nerfed their store locator site today...Happy Earth Day recycling!

Did anyone else feel strange carry in used games to Target? I felt fine going to BBY when they started since they are an electronics store but walking past everyone buying food, clothes and diapers made me self conscious. Probably just me. :bouncy:

Yeah as soon as I walked in some employee who was still wearing his coat told me returns were in front of the registers. I said I had a trade in and he at least knew I should go to the Mobile kiosk.

does the games has to be complete cause i ask one of the mobile guy and he told me that it only has to be in a case that they can transfer. It can be without artwork and/or manual.

Greatly appreciate it if someone can make sure.

The hard part is finding those games complete...

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.
