MSP cards would make awesome stocking stuffers.

I hope the limit is like 3 of them. Enough to make you want to go out and get them, but not let 1 person just buy them all and then try and flip them on craigslist for 12 bucks a piece.

Thank god for having a red card.

Yeah good luck getting 15. You'd be lucky if there is 10 per store and that people won't beat you to them.

If you plan on doing this I highly advise you to get your cards from another store. (IE Bestbuy, Walmart, Walgreens) just take the cards as they have no value and take them to the target you are planning on getting the points from. I only suggest this cause that's a lot of cards you will be taking away from others at that specific store.

Yes I know its kind of a grey area, but I have been told by fastcard in the past that this is what you should do if you come across no stock at another store.


This is legal?

i really hate these Xbox 360 Kinect bundles.
I have a Kinect. Just want a new 360 to replace my phat.


Too bad Walmart didn't bring back the $200 Kinect bundle with $50 gift card. That Kinect has been looking interesting. Oh well. Maybe I'll snag an $89 Wii!:)

Yes cause the cards are not owned by the store. Fastcard the company that makes many of these giftcard's leases the space for their cards to be in the stores.

The controller "doorbuster" for $39 almost seems like a mistake. I can get a 360 controller right now cheaper on amazon, and a Dual Shock 3 for a couple bucks more. And to have a controller as a doorbuster is just odd even if it was a better price.

These aren't Fastcards. These are Microsoft cards that are specifically provided to that store. What you are suggesting is called shoplifting and fraud.

But wouldn't walking in and leaving, mean stealing?


Technically its not stealing, as the cards have no value. It truly is a grey zone. The more unfortunate thing is that some stores don't understand this. They also aren't informed enough to know that they don't even own the cards.

This only applies to the Fastcards that are near the music section and the point/live/psn cards. Target has their own cards so don't get those confused.

Lmfao. I guess you are to explain all of this to a store manager and have them confirm it BEFORE you walk out with the card/s.

Yes that would probably be best.

I only brought this up due to the fact I can see already that a lot of people already are plotting to buy a lot of them. I know target does not keep a large quantity on hand at any given time.

You guys think if they do run out of MSP, they could just print out the codes on the receipt like best buy did last year with their Xbox live cards?

Disappointing ad, but so far I've not seen anything from any retailer that points to amazing deals anywhere to be found.

Presidential years are always disappointing years. That much has been true at least for the last 12 years I've been into BF ads. This year is no surprise, walmart seems to be the only active retailer with any good specials.

Targets ad also suffers from their BF formula, which is getting stale. Last 3 years have seen pretty much the same exact products and manufactures.

Target seems like a good place to price match video games on BF, plus the discount from the Redcard will almost negate tax.

Edit: Could've swore Target was PMing BF deals. Going to be a lot of pissy customers (More so than usual) if that's the case, because a ton of people have the assumption that they are price matching BF deals. Oh boy.


They were not excluding black Friday when they first announced their price matching. However 1-2 weeks later they added it in... They must of forgot or ran the numbers and said Fuck

Good deal on MSP, if you can get your hands on some.

Also $200 Vita with Lego Batman 2. Tempting...wish the AC Vita bundle was $200 somewhere.


My same thought. I like the one at BB more though. $200 for the COD LE one.
