Don't buy Darkness II at Target. It's $20 at Best Buy, I think starting tomorrow.


is it a Deal of the Day item? Otherwise why would it drop in price mid week?

Here you go:

Spoiler


Maybe, the OP needs to add a list of games currently priced $29.99 this week.

Thanks so much to the OP and all the CAGs, who have posted helpful information about this promotion.


I'll add it to the OP. The problem is that there simply aren't that many $29.99 games. That list pretty much covers them and any given Target may only have half of those in stock.

I was finally able to convince the guy at my local Target to use the "promo" code and I got rid of 3 PS2 and 1 DS game. This was the third different employee I've seen there in 3 days. He was pretty laid back about the whole thing and read the Promo details (which are in a tab on their browser page) and then went with it. He didn't even try to look them up and just ran them all as "Promo". He also let me enter my own ID info and said to put anything for the DL ID number. After I left I realized I could have used another name had I wanted - oh well ;). I'm sure he would have let me do more but the others I had brought were "legit" games (ie, in the system) that I only wanted to trade if they didn't take the generic ones. So now I can find more I want to get rid of and keep saving those in case whoever I get tomorrow won't do the "Promo" thing.

I wound up trading two useless games (TC:Rainbow Six Vegas & Unreal Tournament III) earlier today. The whole transaction went very smooth. Guy stated that I was limited to one trade in, but if I had someone with me that had another ID that we could run a second transaction.

I wound up picking up Fortune Street for the Wii of all things as I have been waiting to get this game on the cheap since December to no avail. I might have to go in a couple of more times to grab Uncharted: GA for the Vita & Fallout: NV Ultimate before Saturday!

Is this game also $29.99? I might get that as I am running out of things to buy as well ;).

OK, didn't check there because of the prices not necessarily being the same but, yeah, that's far too much for that game. I'd get it for $10 (after coupon) but not $28.

I'll figure something out ;).

Can someone please explain how they'd get Target to price-match TRU's Metal Gear Solid HD price (with promo)? Just print screen the checkout price and hope for the best? If this works, you'd also be able to get The Witcher 2 disgustingly cheap.

I would like to know this also. My local store refuses to price match without a physical printed ad and my local store didn't get any this week.

You would hope, I hope it's just my store but the Mobile rep refused me again today (2 days in a row) on any game she couldn't pull up in her system. If she has the memo, then she should be able to do it.


All she has to do is pull up the current promotions, it explains to use promo game in a search if the game isnt listed. its simple though they seem to not trust how simple it actully is. Whomever set up the promotion, made it idiot proof, but still there are those who can still F it up.

Bummed, my source for a Best Buy ad recycled it already. #-o No SSX for me.

I did pick up a bunch of Mario DS games that I didn't have and Rayman Origins so that's a score. Turned a box of nothing into $80 so far. \\:D/

I was not able to get points cards or combine games under $29.99 though. Said no item found when trying to use the coupon. :error:

My guys have been awesome, let me do as many as I want, don't know how much is really left that I want. They don't have AC V or MvC 3 Ultimate in stock, don't really want anything else atm. I really want to get rid the rest of my low end games though... Dilemas dilemas! :-k

Traded in 6 games for 3 coupons at the same time yesterday.
The Target mobile guy was really nice. He just did three separate transactions and gave me the coupons all at once.

Two of my games were MGS2 and MGS3. Those didn't come up on the system. So I told him to input "Promo Game" and he was surprised to have seen that come up. He didn't ask any questions though and proceeded to ring the games up.

I wish all employees were like that.

Walked out with Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, and MGS HD.

I don't see how you (technically) exploiting the deal x5 is YMMV. I was able to trade in two sets right before 8pm when the mobile section closes.


No, I'm just saying that this should be straight forward. Either you go in, do this once and you're done. Or go in and do this X (where x = limit) amount of times and you're done. Or go in and complete as many trades as you want. There are no rules - I could probably take drive to Chicago and hit every Target I can find and be told different things in every store. That's the YMMV part of it.

The manager of the phone kiosk at my said "he didn't want to get into trouble" - I asked if someone told him that there is a limit of one and he said no. So if they have the ability to make up rules at a store level, then this is right up there with Wal-Mart clearances as the most YMMV type deal we can have.

He also said that I could only do 5 trade-ins a day at any time, so I know if Target has some fantastic trade-in deal down the road that I may already be SOL.

Does anyone know if Target will price-match SSX for the 360 if the PS3 version is the one listed in the Best Buy ad? The 360 version is also on sale for $39.99 this week.

I suppose I could get a copy of Uncharted 3 to use with the BB 50% trade-in promo, but that would still be a bit more expensive and possibly time consuming.

Has anyone had luck trading in a multiplatform version of a game that's not on their website, for example I have Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance on Xbox but only the PS2 version is listed on their site. Also Mercenaries 2 (I have PS3, only 360 is listed) and Madden 08 PS3, for some reason they'll take OG Xbox/Gamecube versions of Madden 08 but the PS3 one isn't listed lol.

I guess I could ask them to ring up an Xbox version as a PS2 version or something and maybe they'd go for it?

I questioned that myself a few days ago when I had them price match Kingdoms of Amular. It didn't say 360 on sale in the BB flyer, though it is (which is weird...it usually shows the picture of one system and says the other system is also incuded). Anyway, the dude just saw it was the same game and easily price matched it. So you'll probably be ok.

Also it has been reported that buying two $20 MS$ doesn't work anymore, but buying the $50 card will? Anyone anything about this? Gonna try after work today, gotta find all my old ps2 games.

That's what I'm saying, it shouldn't be any harder that reading the rules, but I can't get her to budge. I contacted NextWorth, they are suppose to be emailing me a memo I can bring in to show to her. If I get it, I will share it here. Kinda pissed, because yesterday was the last day that GameStop had Goldeneye for $29.99

Given what I was told at 3 different stores you DEFINITELY need a physical copy of the ad. They were adamant about it and would not match ANYTHING else other than a physical copy of the original ad (no print-outs allowed).

Just to confirm, ymmv on trading in multiple games. Do it quickly before they realize it's one coupon, per day. Emeryville sure did. Albany, CA has unlimited transactions (so far). I need suggestions; Im currently buying UNcharted 3's, selling them on amazon new &. Making 13$ every transaction. I'm planning on making $250 by the end of all of it, but are their alternatives?

Is the $20 coupon like an extra bonus for trading in two games? So if I trade in an extra Uncharted 3 I have, and some other game, do I get the money for the trade in for those games plus the 20 dollar coupon? Or just the 20 dollar coupon?

Well, $20 is worth teaching for 10 seconds. I traded in MLB The Show 10 (which would've netted me $.75) and Bulletstorm (which would've gotten me $1 something) and got $20. The game selection for me was slim, and if I hadn't done it so late I would've went to another Target, but I grabbed New Vegas Ultimate for $19.
