MK Deception didn't work cuz it had no frickin' manual, which I forgot about being annoyed by when I got it from BB during a B2G1 on pre-owned. So I had to run over to GS and buy a $3 Tiger Woods for PS3(with some credit from the eRewards gc I had;)). I told the one manager there about the Target deal and I think I got him interested in doing that after he gets off work.:lol:

But as for Call Of Juarez, Toy Story 3 and Just Cause, those games were expendable to me cuz COJ sucked, Toy Story 3 was kinda annoying and Just Cause(the original) is just :-& after playing the sequel and any other games on PS3 or any current gen system.

I ended up getting :ps3:God Of War III, :ps3:Uncharted 3(w/ a dent in the back of the case from the plastic prison:bomb:) and :ps3:L.A. Noire Complete with my three coupons since the Uncharted dual pack bundles didn't seem to work automatically either at electronics or up front on one of the registers.:-#

I then ended up selling the one bundle I kept to a flea market seller I'm pretty friendly with as well as the three games I bought. I got enough to pay off my remaining cc balance once it comes due in a couple of days and I helped out someone who wasn't the one local prick game store owner who lowballs me worse than GS anymore.:razz:


Oh! Cool! You got in on the deal! And, yeah, I played a trial of that Toy Story 3 game:-#.

Yeah, me too. I picked up SotC at full price for the PS2 when it first released, but missed out on Ico. Having both in HD for $20 is a good price for me.

Same here, I got it on launch and I never regreted it. Also missed out on ICO but now I can finally play it and in 3D too so I'm pretty happy.

Got in on the deal, but had to do some driving. The first Target only let me do one trade-in. Traded in 2 old PS2 games worth less than a buck each, price matched KoA Reckoning from BB for $39 then used the coupon.

Drove to another Target and they let me trade in 8 games for 4 coupons! The most any game I traded in was worth only $2! Crazy!! Got Rayman Origins, Sonic Generations, and R&C All 4 One for the kiddos and AC:R for myself. Not a bad haul! Trying to decide if I should go back one more time today before it's over...:D

I suggest you hold on to your reciept if you guys got something you didn't want. I confirmed you can exchange a game at a later date as long as you have your reciept. I bought god of war origins 3 days ago and exchanged it for ico/shadow collection with no problem. They just have to be the same value in order to work.


It probably won't work past the promo though since they have to print out the coupon in order to apply to the game you are exchanging for. You may or may not get an manager to manually override it for you but it isn't suggested to buy something and attempt to exchange it with the $20 off coupon after today since they might just accept the exchange and force you to pay the full price and you lose out on that coupon.

No they don't, it's a generic $20 off on the receipt. The lady at customer service just scanned in my old game and scanned the receipt and the new game and gave it to me.

was able to PM Best buys ad for SSX. Guest service lady had wtf look on her face when i pulled out the $20 coupon and was like where'd you get this from. I kindly pointed to the giant Target Mobile logo in the middle of the paper and then showed her their ad.

Nice thanks for the info. Probably going to pick up Modnation Racers (vita)in preparation to exchange it tomorrow for Marvel vs. Capcom (vita).

didn't read all the post to see but if you have a game that doesn't appear in their system the Target mobile person can type "promo game" and it will add you game regardless if its in their system.

Might be YMMV because my CS went to the Mobile Section to print another coupon just to scan through an exchange.

A lot of the times for coupons and in exchanges they don't allow you to apply coupons used on previous transactions in exchanges. I'm sure to deter from exchanges such as this.

I'm just taking this from my experience dealing with retail stores and coupons. Of course you're or other people are welcome to try but it's a high percentage you'll be rejected after the promo is over.

True, well if anyone is at Target to go buy some shampoo or something it doesn't hurt to try haha. But she did restrict my to a game of the same price so maybe that's the drawback.

When I did an exchange earlier this week, it was just a straight exchange. No new coupon needed or anything.

I would think if your even exchanging or paying the difference it would be ok. Returning is where it would get interesting

I originally thought it was restricted to PS3/Xbox 360/Wii trading, but sure enough I brought in The Getaway (PS2) and NBA 09:The Inside (PSP) and it worked. I ended up getting Red Dead Redemption (360) for $20.

This was my first time trading in games to a store other than Gamestop. Does this or similar promotions happen often at Best Buy and K-Mart? Does Best Buy and K-Mart take old gen games too?

Interesting.
I may just keep Wipeout sealed and see if I can exchange it for Resistance next month.
If not, I'll play Wipeout. :)

If you're up for burning some gas...the store here on Lancaster (across from Best Buy) allowed multiple trades (Keizer Station only one per household per day)


Really that's odd cause yesterday they wouldn't let me trade more then two.

My Target in Parma Ohio had the sign next to Red Dead indicating it to be $29.99 today. I opted to get something else.

Finally decided to give this deal a try while helping a friend get gears 3 for $10. My target had rayman origins for Xbox only clearanced to $20.98. The guy at the electronics scanned the coupon regardless of it not being $29.99 and above and sure enough it worked. Snagged rayman for $1.07! I was very pleased.

My store only let me trade in one pair and despite the header on his computer screen saying to use "promo game" is the UPC doesn't come up, the worker insisted that he couldn't do that for this transaction. I had plenty of stuff to trade so no big deal. I was lucky to run into a friend of mine and he helped me to get another pair traded in. I just wish I thought about doing this earlier in the week.

Grrr! I was denied on just my second attempt. Same guy working the Mobile area that I worked with on Day 1 of the promo refused to budge on not accepting Madden 09 for PS3, even though it was in the system as the Spanish version. I pointed to the top of his monitor where it says "enter 'promo game' if you can't find it" but he kept shaking his head. Didn't feel it was worth getting into an argument so I left empty-handed this time.

Apparently I was the only person to go in the entire time for this promo at that location (San Ramon) -- a lot of good that did me, though.
