Fortunately there are other Targets he doesn't control :roll:, but it is making things somewhat of a pain and wasting me time and gas.



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)



Went and tried again a little bit ago. Douchebag said I could only trade in 2 games during the whole promotion, cause he remembered me from yesterday. He said nobody came in today to do multiple trades and said I was lying, gave him the finger and told him to screw himself. The lady at the kezier station target gladly accepted my second batch of trade in's and said ya it's suppose to be 2 a day. So i wouldn't waste the gas if your trying to get multiple trades from salem cause it's only 2 a day at kezier station and once only at Lancaster mall location. Don't know where this dude got his info from!

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


Ah, another local CAG and a Duck fan none-the-less :roll: ;)

It was yesterday when I was in there and I told her about the promo code. She was going to allow me to do as many as I wanted, but it took 30 minutes to do the first two so I called it good.

Change is fucking good - but folding money is better.

Let's see I traded in 12. Between flips I got cash/bb credit that equaled the money I spent out of pocket. And I STILL HAVE rayman, sonic, UC3, and Metal gear hd to show for it. Um that basically means I got those games "free" for unloading crappy games I had under my bed (really, under the bed).

So I say again, best deal there ever was or will be!

Hmmm IATCG the controller bundles didnt get marked down for you?? I ended up getting one set of those that were on clearance for 41 and was able to apply the coupon for them.

CAG'S the Red Dead GOTY just dropped to 29.99 i Grabbed the last copy for 9.99/ I had picked it up earlier in the week for 19.99. Does Anybody know if i can exchange it for another 39.99 game??

No. For whatever reason they didn't reduce in price when they tried the coupon with them today. Not that I would've bought more than 1-2 anyway(especially since my closest store has em stuck at frickin' $41.98:bomb:), since I needed to return all the ones I bought prior due to my credit card I bought them on coming due n not having the $$$ to pay it at that point.:cry::-#

I wish they would've had RDR GOTY marked at my Target cuz I would've grabbed that for my one friend so we could play that online.

Good to see a local CAG in my area,now I know I better jump on some of these deals quick now LOL.
If it was the thick chick then ya she was pretty helpful, but the other mobile worker who was a guy was cool yesterday but a super douche today, he was even telling me yesterday that he was a gamer and should jump on the promotion too. After 2 days I got to say i got what i wanted anyway.

Need for Speed: the Run rings up free with the coupon. YMMV to get a cashier to accept the coupon since its 19.99 for the game. Trades into AMZ for $16.50 each copy. GS TIV base is $13 before promo.


Damn that is a nice pick up, I wish i wouldve have known that. Either way cant complain with this great deal and it has been a good week even though i feel games like portal 2 and need for speed and hot pursuit will be 9.99 prob within the year.

Total haul
ALL PS3
Assassins Creed Revelations
Red Dead Redemption GOY
Portal 2
La Noire Complete Edition
Need For Speed Hot pursuit
Metal Gear Collection- Wish i got this for 9.99 but cant complain at 20
Uncharted 1/2 and Control Bundle 21.00

So $90 for 7 games and aps3 controller is not bad!

Okay, so now that this deal is officially over, time to tally up the winnings.

Uncharted 3 (PS3): $9.99
Red Dead Redemption (PS3): $9.99
Assassin's Creed Revelations (PS3): $9.99
Medieval Moves (PS3): $0.00
Driver (Xbox 360): $0.00
Space Marine (Xbox 360): $0.00

The ones that were $0 were ones on clearance for $12, but the coupon applied because of the original price being high enough. Driver I didn't really want, but it was the only half-decent game in the store, and I was out of time. I couldn't get to another Target to get something else.

So, everyone, post your winnings here. The winner (one who got the best deals) gets a special prize. What's the prize? Hm, how about a congratulatory ban from Target?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!


Damn good haul!

That sucks i mean the game is in basically in there so it shouldve went through. My cousin and I were able to without any problems. Cashier was even amazed at the price and called it a good come up lol . There were plenty of bundles but decided to just give another hopefully cag member a shot to own it. Have a good number of controllers already at home.

RDR GotY was still marked $40 at mine, so I didn't bother to try it. Probably should have just to see if it rang up $29.99. Sucks about the NFS too since my cashier probably would have taken it, but when I got so many other awesome games for the price even following the limitations and not pressing my luck farther I'm still happy for myself and for the others who did even better.

Haha, I just got home and was planning on posting my winnings. These are what I got over the past few days. Hopefully I stay unbanned because I went to a few targets in the same day. At one store the employees were really cool and let me trade in 4 games at once. I tried to come back with 4 games later like a jerk and they turned me down. No biggie because I was thankful they even let me get 2 coupons. It was a douchebag move on my part but I had to give it a try or I'd be regretting it right now.

Jurassic park the game - $9.90
Dead Island - $9.99
Assassins Creed Revelations - $9.99
--> went to GS towards new ps3 console.
Assassins Creed Revelations - $9.99
Rayman Origins - $9.99

Driver San Francisco - Paid the $11.98 instead of using up a coupon
Uncharted 3 - $9.99 --> Went to BB towards upgrade and save promotion blu-rays. They had at least a dozen UC3 left so I didn't feel too guilty trading it to BB.
Need for Speed the Run - FREE!

When was this though? I ask because I was there around 11am-noon today. So maybe they put out a system update to block them. Either that or maybe they had to scan the coupon first(they scanned it last in each transaction here:cry:) to get it to apply automatically.

RDR GOTY was a regional price cut. I checked at mine, even punching the DCPI into the price checker and it came up 39.99. Big boo-urns on that one. :/

Gamestop only had this plain printed out sheet where they listed all the games on sale cause they didn't have any proper printed ads.
Target employee was like whatever (plus Gamestop is literally right next to their parking lot).
I got lucky, most of the times I get denied if I don't have the proper ad (which BB is probably the only shop that's easy to get cause they always have ample copies at the front door)

Yeah it was the thick one. It was the first trade in she had done. I hit the other Target four seperate times and picked up some DS games for the kids that I normally wouldn't grab until they had a decent price drop. Was also able to trade a couple of my "winnings" to GS for a copy of The Witcher 2 (I had called and asked them to hold the one used copy they had, when I showed up they had already sold it. So the manager gave me a new copy at the used price)

Oh brother it's arguably moreso a glitch than some sort of scam. Technically the register accepts it because MSRP is $39.99. The coupon is read before any sale to be stacked.

Don't you work at Gamestop? I'd say that alone renders any morality speeches you could give others null and void since GS reps have to lie to customers every day("like omg you'll NEVER find this game in stores unless you pre-order with us") just to keep their jobs.

Traded Gran Turismo 3 and Final Fantasy XII to get Uncharted 3. Had two other games to trade, but they were too scratched :cry: Was going to try to get Golden Sun for free, but whatever.

My bro traded in two crap PS1 games- Dracula: The Last Sanctuary and SpongeBob Supersponge to get Rage for free. He bought some random item with it because he felt bad getting something free.

Weird thing about this Target was that it was bigger than the other one I went to, but it had a smaller game section. Didn't have any issues with the lady running the mobile kiosk, but I did have to point out that it says to use promo game for any game not in the system. She spent like 5 minutes trying to find Gran Tursimo until I said something.

Hopefully they do this again soon. Awesome promotion! :applause:
