Has anyone tried stacking Target's $10 gift card after buying $50 or more coupon after price matching Best Buy's price with the free $20 gift card?

Someone in SD said they did it but the manager would only give them 2 $10 GC and the $20 GC. That's probably VERY YMMV though since some of us weren't even able to get the the $20 GC.

Oh darn. That would mean having to sell my retail copy and all my save info. :(


Still worth it. Nintendo announced in the spring that they'll have a utility for transferring save data from cartridges to digital copies. MK7 will retain it's value as a first-party 3DS game, and in the meantime you can still play your cartridge on the XL. I've already done it, and the system doesn't mind that there are two MK7s available on the home screen =) Just do yourself a favor and don't boot the digital copy and confuse SpotPass/StreetPass data between copies.

I'll likely sell my cartridge once I can transfer save data. It's definitely cool to have full games stored on your system, I'd just likely never purchase them for MSRP off the eShop. At least a game like MK has quite a bit of replayability with MP.

Yes.

We also used a $10 off $100 or more coupon with our purchase. Total was just under $150 after tax.

I think I detailed what we got earlier in the thread but just in case:

This was all done in the electronics dept, no need to go up front to CS. Asked about the PM and showed clerk the ad. He grabbed it out of the case, made the change at the register. We paid with a $10 GC and a Target $10 off "$100 or more" coupon we got last week while grocery shopping. Clerk didn't even bat an eye at giving us the $20 GC, he just swiped it and handed it to us with the unit in a plastic bag.

I now realize this may have been a bit of a different situation than what you were initially asking about. Doh!

Ohh yup. Because theres a coupon for spend 50$ get 10$ gc and so i was wondering if i shud print 3 and see if getting 30$ back is a better deal if i dont get a 20$ gc

Yeah I got the $20 gc no problem at a target near my school. I think I'm gonna go try tomorrow and find out, but not really getting my hopes up. I wish I waited a bit longer to bite on this deal.

No, they don't have the screen scratching issue. You can look through the side when it's closed and see that there's a pretty good gap between the screens.

Highly unlikely that they would honor more than one of the $10 off $50 coupons on one order. It might even say on the coupon something about that.

Price matched at the Target CS counter and got the $20 GC without a problem.
I was in a hurry and forgot about the $10 GC with $50 purchase coupon in my purse :( Oh well, I know I can spend that on something else :)

Just gave it to me, no asking involved.

It was 5:20 and there were at least 5 people in line behind me at the CS counter. The cashier and the manager who punched in her code to approve the pm were in kind of a "just keep em moving" mode. Neither of them batted an eye. Hope everyone is just as lucky!

I ordered mine from Gamestop.com yesterday. If you spend at least $25, you get free value shipping. http://www.gamestop....e-filter/104724.

YMMV.

I was able to pm the mk7 bundle at the chino CA target off grand ave. There were about 6 left in the display case. I just showed the bb price on my tablet to cs. I also got the $20 gc as well as a $10 gc after using the coupon which expires Dec 15 (receive $10 gc for spending at least $50). Asked if I could use multiple coupons but csr said only one per transaction. Selling my flame red 3ds for $125 via cl today. As others have noted, the blue looks fugly in pictures but I think it looks pretty cool once you have it in your hands.
