I am so hoping you take care of this.

I wish I was working for Target Mobile during this promotion. I'd be calling my friends and even posting it randomly online for people to come in.

$9.99 games are legit.


So am I.

Thank you for this info. Is it like putting "Promo Game" as a searchable game? Or like there is a link they click and the system does the rest? Just making sure cause I'm going back tomorrow. Hopefully the guy working there got to talk to his DM about this working.

Also, do you happen to know Nextworth's number for contacting?


Yes. The same place they enter the name of the game is where they type PROMO GAME. Just has to be entered under the Wii section if it's a Wii game, etc...
If possible, try and go between 9am-5pm, in case you have to call them. (888) 969-4763 They are SUPER-NICE so be nice to them!!!!!!!

Update from Vegas: Traded in more garbage today including a couple Gamecube games. Pointed out the large yellow box that says to enter "promo game" if a game can't be found. Guy flat out said "my district manager said not to do that and if it doesn't come up it can't be traded in." Thankfully I had 4 games and they all appeared including XIII and Worms Blast for the cube. Got Rayman and Sonic Generations if anyone is tracking what people buy.

I have a bunch of xbox games here that are not on the web site, I am thinking I will try a different Target here and see what happens with those. Got 6 or 7 in town that are doing the deal...


Lies! The garbage I dealt with. The all mighty riff raff who no one was over, called his DM and he told him to do it.

The guy was all...I've done this a lot....I don't want to see that email(waiving it away)....I don't care what she said at Nextworth. I was like....... ***speaks to self: breathe...breathe.*** because if I would have snapped..........

I was like, since you like to follow rules, READDDDDDD YOUR SCREEN!!!!!!!!

My Target is very picky also, they require the actual ad. I had been shot down in the past without ad from a Sunday paper for example, but I printed the PDF and figured I'd give it another shot. The rep behind the customer service desk couldn't of cared less, but she had to call over a manager to override the price. She asked if it was the entire ad, and I told her it sure was, and she punched it right through. I was prepared to be shot down, but was pretty glad it worked.


I'll have to keep that in mind for future reference. Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm hoping to get at least three games with this deal by Saturday. Being a Target Mobile rep, I am not able to trade in games for myself, so I have to go in when my manager is working.

Many of you have had an easy time with the promotion and I feel bad for those of you who get stuck with lazy d-bags who are giving you grief. I've been taking games whether they have manuals or not and giving out how ever many coupons a person wanted - no one ever told me it was "once a day" or any other BS like that. I gave some guy 3 coupons today. The electronics employees were mesmerized by actually seeing so many games being traded in. But the Nextworth servers have been running INCREDIBLY slow at certain times, probably because they never imagined so many people would be trading stuff in all at once. So try not to snap a disc in half and shank the rep with it - it's not our fault! :)

That's complete crap that some of you guys are having issues with the CSRs not entering the "promo" option for games not in their trade list.

It does suck, but at least for me I can't blame the guy. He would of done what he could to help me, but didn't want to get in trouble. Said if he can get his DM to answer his phone or get ahold of some official memo (not the one posted here. One like from their email system or something that he can access) he would of done it.

Thank you for being so helpful. I'll tell him if he could search for "Promo Game" and see if that works. Though hopefully he gets the OK and me telling him is not needed. I'll def go in the morning. If it's still a no go, I'll either call or do to a different Target. Unless the other Target gives me the same result then I'll call :P I just really want to get rid of these Xbox games lol.

Went to two different stores today and both tried to deny the trade in as none of the games were on the list. Thanks to all the posts, I told the CSR to click on the Promotions Tab. There is specific instructions when done that tells them if a game is not found to enter "promo game" to push the trade in through. Both guys were really surprised but after they read that I didn't have a problem.

Picked up :360:LA Noire Complete and :ps3: GoW Collections after traded in some old xbox games. The guy working the mobile section was really cool about the promo, and let me trade in all 4 games.

Probably gonna trade in my 2 GOW ps2 games now since I got the better ones.

Thanks for posting this additional information. Do you happen to know where the "Promotions Tab" is located? I'm sure it's easy to find, but just want to walk the employee through it just in case. I'll be sure to mention this too if it helps me.

When they are in the screen to type the name of the game you are trying to trade in, I believe there are three tabs right above. I think the first one says application, then something else, then promotions. If they click on that tab, it lists all the different promotions they are running. The first one has to do with an Ipad offer. The trade in offer is listed 2nd and the 2nd to last line of the instructions lists the entering "promo game" for games not found.

Actually. It was at the top of the screen. I was like....YOU SEE THAT!!!!!!!!

The words about entering promo game were plain as day. All he had to do was enter that in the search bar...which must have been rocket science.

Finally-a real rep CAG...awesome! Prepare to be interviewed lol. My question is-who are these District managers that some on here have said told the mobile reps not to accept games not on the list, no ifs, ands, or buts? Are they NextWorth district managers or Radio Shack managers? I'm confused as to how the two operate together and who exactly the Target mobile reps answer to. Cuz an earlier post tells of a manger running the kiosk and refusing to look at the Nextworth email that has been posted here.

I wonder if you can price match after you used the coupon?

Cause Target has a 7 day PM policy.

Like for instance...if I bought Disney Universe for $29.99 + Tax
Used the coupon
and paid $9.99+ Tax

Could I PM BB's current 19.99 price and be refunded the $9.99 I spent out of pocket?

Edit:
Can I use coupons when price matching?
A guest can use coupons when price matching per Target's normal coupon policy. When the guests presents a coupon(s), these steps will be followed:

Manufacturer Coupons:
Manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.

Target Coupons:
Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's price.

Combining both a Target and Manufacturer Coupons:
The Target coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's price. Once the price match is made the manufacturer coupon will be applied.

Reminder: We accept one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item unless either coupon prohibits it.

Target does not ad match a competitors coupon-required offers.

Here's the food chain and low down on Target Mobile:

District Manager (mine oversees 18 stores in the Metro Detroit area)
Kiosk Manager
Kiosk Associate - That's me

Nextworth is just a partner of Target and RadioShack. We never talk to or answer to NextWorth. Target Mobile is owned and operated by Radio Shack. None of us are technically Target employees - although we can ring up guests on Target registers and "act" as Target employees. So if a guest asks us for assistance for something other than cell phones, we are obligated to help as best we can. We also enjoy both Radio Shack and Target emp. discounts. As far as being told not to accept games on the list, that is something that hasn't happened in our district. Actually, my DM hasn't even brought up the trade in promotion once in any of this week's e-mails. Hopefully I answered your question :)

Probably not. Because the coupon is for $20 off $29.99+ video games, if you pricematched it, the coupon wouldn't work.

not an expert but don't think so.target coupons are applied before the price match then price is adjusted if competitor's price is still lower. while a manufacture's coupon on the other hand is applied after. again not an expert just how I read their posted policy.

That's why I was wondering if I could PM after it was bought.
Cause on the receipt it's just a generic "Coupon $20 off" listing.

So I buy it at the electronics counter...go to customer service and PM?

How are you guys getting these 19.99 games free? Manager override??? I tried for ME2 for PS3 and it wouldn't work with coupon. And yes, I had another 29.99 game in the same transaction so the total wouldn't end up being $0.00 if it had worked.


Did you use 2 coupons? I just did a 2 coupon transaction with Jurassic park $29.90 pre coupon and DQM2 $10.48 pre coupon and paid $9.90 plus tax for both those as expected.

Well, Today I was able to PM Posted ImageKingdoms of Amalur from 59.99 to 39.99 (had to bring in a BB ad) and was able to add the $20 coupon bringing my total to 19.99

It was a good day. :bouncy:

Oh one more thing, since the coupons get void the day after, can we take it to a different Target store and use it there? Say if a game is not in stock at one location but the other etc.


The coupons are good only the day they are printed. So while they are generic for that day, they are specific only to the date on them. Nthey will work at any store for the day they are valid but will come up expired the next day.

I did the same, the only problem is even with PM it is still over $29.99

Disney Universe's PM is $19.99
Fuck it, I'll try it anyways.

It has a decent TIV of $13 at BB right now anyways.

I've had a hell of a time getting the "missed coupons" applied to previous purchases, at least to the DS3 bundles ive picked up on clearance over the past couple of weeks. I've had to return/rebuy them to get them for $9.98 and still have a couple more left to do.

I'm to the point I'm looking at the $19.99 greatest hits shelf but it mostly sucks. I also don't want to pay $20 AC for 3DS and PSVita games lol, at $10 I would clean out every store but 50% off just isn't cutting it for me damn I'm greedy. Although I will probably get Tales of the Abyss for $20 AC. It's just too bad the TRU ad isnt $10 off all $39.99 and up games not just PS3 and X360. I also wish I could find Jak and Daxter, Silent Hill, and Shadows of the Damned in store but oh well. At least I'll load up on gifts for the next year or so with these, not like any are really worth it to flip or resell.
