1.Go to Target before Black Friday.
2.Find Microsoft Points cards and hide them where no-one will look.
3.Go back later on BF and buy them.

No way I am busting the doors down, and I have a feeling that deal is going to be popular.


may do this...but where to hide them? Hopefully loss prevention doesn't find them and put them back on display.

Did that last year at walmart. I hid like 3 copies of a game.

2 of them were still there like a month after black friday.


Did you hide them in the tampons section?

The best place to hide the point cards until black Friday is under a fixture in a gaming aisle. The bottom shelves lift up revealing a nice hiding spot. I used to do this all the time during the golden age of Target clearance.

Uh, isn't hiding merchandise considered shoplifting if you get caught? I'm pretty sure it is here in Ky. NOT worth going to jail and having it on your record if you ask me.

However Walmart's normal prices are usually at least 5% cheaper than Tartget without coupons


The items you know that have the stacking coupons for, Wal-Mart does not even come close on price much less 5%. And wal-Mart will not price match the stacking coupons and the red card discount so there are always reasons to go to Target. Like others have said, buying consoles, phones, apple product there is always smart since they are not allowed to be discounted by anybody, yet somehow I always get the 5%. I'm not Target fanboy, don't get me wrong, if there are no coupons involved, WalMart often becomes my choice. You should not forget Target as a shopping destination either, though

You can get put in jail for moving things in a store???

Wow, I'd say that sounded like a police state but I' not sure that covers it :hot:

I highly doubt anyone could be arrested from doing that but I am sure employees could tell you to not do that and if they catch you two or three times again ask you to leave the store which is the most they could do unless you refuse and make a scene.

I feel like hiding the cards or walking out with them and coming back to get them activated is a grey area. On one hand sure, you are securing something you want to purchase that day and hopefully you aren't el hoardo doing this but on the other hand this screws over people who might be waiting in line to grab these or who actually show up early to get this but they can't because someone hid most of them or walked out of the store a day before with them. Not trying to get morally preachy on this since there is too much of that on this site as it is, but just something to think about.

Taking the cards without paying for them is shoplifting. You are preventing other people from buying them at full price thus costing the store revenue. No further discussion is required.

People put things out of place all the time and nothing happens.

Shoplifting is when you intend to take something out of the store without paying for it.

Reason I mentioned that is according to some people on here, since the cards have no value and they aren't like regular store merchandise but through the card vendor, Fastcard or something, that this is ok. I work retail and personally would never do anything like this because I do feel like this would be on the side of shop lifting, but since I don't know the true story behind the cards I was just adding my two cents about the situation in regards to screwing other people over possibly.

Huh? Taking a card out of the store is a whole lot different from just putting it out of place.

I think hiding stuff goes beyond selfishness and into Scrooge territory. That said, we sure seem to have a lot of lawyers on his forum spouting the "law".

Aren't there normally just stacks of those cards anyway???

I buy groceries and home decor all the time.

Advantages of Target:
-5% off everything and free shipping online with your RedCard.
-Hundreds of coupons available on http://coupons.target.com/ . These coupons stack with manufacturer coupons, which also stack on top of sales, gift card offers, or even clearance.
-Their clearance outside of videogames is spectacular. I've scored so many wonderful things for my new house these past few months. Lamps, mirrors, knobs and so much more. Good looking stuff too.
-It's a clean, well organized store. I'll gladly pay a few more cents per item more for the atmosphere and to avoid "Walmart people". I'm sorry, it may sound snotty but there's a reason why there's a peopleofwalmart.com. The South Park episode where they depicted people in rascal scooters at Walmart was super accurate.
-A shower curtain may be $1-$2 more at Target versus Walmart, but you get what you pay for. You pay just a little extra to get much nicer things.
-This sort of relates to product selection. Often times at Walmart I see the trashy looking clothes there and think "people buy this?". Rarely does that thought cross my mind at Target.

Yes, if you compare items side by side without any offers, Target will often lose out. However, I feel I can have "nice" things at a reasonable price, whereas other places offer me "cheap" looking things at a cheap price. And with their stackable coupons and clearance, Target has a good reputation among extreme coupon-ers.

In comparison to some game retailers, they suck though, and that's too bad. Every so often though they have a surprising gift card offer, temporary price cut, clearance game, or crazy offers like the trade-in special thing several months back.

edit: upon examination of my comment, I was very fixated on Walmart, whereas the comment I quoted used Costco as an example. I'm sure Costco is better then Walmart, but the general ideas of why I like Target still stands.


I agree with everything you said. I haven't been to Wal-Mart in over 5 years and I don't plan to change that soon.

Costco is the only place I buy clothes and food. They have a markup policy, they can only mark up items 20% (IIRC). So you will see items super cheap in bulk. Clothes are super cheap too. Kirkland Jeans for $14. Khaki pants for $20. The downside to the markup policy is some items are loss leaders at other places and can be cheaper, but it's only 1% of the time.

I mostly get house items that Costco doesn't carry, but every else is target. Especially if I can get it on coupon.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Hiding cards is shoplifting. They might not have any actual value but I do work in retail and when we can't find a bunch of those cards either Itunes, xbox, or what not it becomes an assets protection case and is fully investigated. Do not do this.
