Mostly MSRP listings, but there are two deals:

:3ds: 3DS Console $169.99 // 3DS XL $199.99
Free $25 gift card with purchase

Posted Image Buy any game $39.99 and up AND reserve an upcoming game for $1 down, get a $10 gift card. Note: you do not need to pick up your pre-order.

Sure can! Though you will be charged $10 for the gift card so you'd only get $30 back.

What.

Oh, you have to buy a game too. Well, that's not terrible if you need a game

The last time Target did this was around the launch of NSMB 2 for the 3DS. It was for a $15 GC instead of $10 though.

Yeah, that was a part of the MSRP listings that I omitted. Now that you mention it though, Brain Age was listed for $39.99 when Amazon and others have it for $29.99 (Fry’s had a pre-order for $24.99 as well). I was pretty sure that $29.99 was the MSRP. :-k

Ugh i hate when we have these gift card kind of things. Customers are idiots and dont read all of it. They just read the "get a $10 giftcard". The way these kind of deals work is that in order for u to GET the $10 gift card u have to buy a game $39.99 AND reserve another game for $1. I guess if u are really that desperate for a stupid $10 giftcard then u can just not end up picking the pre-ordered game up.

  • Buy a $39.99+ game.
  • Buy a pre-order card for $1 on any upcoming game.
  • Cashier hands you $10 Target GC.
It is as simple as that. The $1 does not go towards whatever game you pre-ordered but you do get a $5 target GC when you pick up the game. You lose the $1 if you don't pickup or pickup the game either way.

Not bad, I'm getting Aliens anyways so I'll just get the card tomorrow and pick it up and Dead Space 3 with $15 in and 5% off for using the red card.

Ooooh...now might be a great time to pick up a 3DS XL at Target when I get my tax return sometime next week. Then I can use the $25 GC on Fire Emblem...if they are stocking it. Then I can reserve a game for $1 dollar down while buying Fire Emblem and get a $10 GC in exchange. WOW! Nice savings all around. :applause:

Tempted to buy the New Sly Cooper to play on my PS3 and Vita. 5% off and basically $9 GC after paying for the $1 pre-order I won't pick up.

Not as good of a deal as the $20 reward certs from BB, but still not too bad considering Target has other home type products.

Don't forget you get an additional $5 on pick up of the reserved title.

Say I bought a XL and fire emblem at the same time and preordered luigi's mansion. Would I get $35 in gift cards then?

Yep I was planning on doing this as well. Use my red card and also some shopkicks. But then I gotta beat Sly 3!

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Yes.

I’d have no problem spending $35 at Target but if you want to make Fire Emblem cheaper up front I’d do this:

Buy the 3DS XL, get your $25 gift card.
On a second transaction, buy Fire Emblem + $1 Game Reserve using that $25 gift card you just got. You’ll then get a $10 gift card after paying $16.

If you’re like me though and spend money at Target you can just do this one transaction and get a $25 and $10 gift card.

I want a 3DS XL and I'll eat the $200 so I can get the gift card. I'll use the card for something else, maybe Aliens or something.
Ok then, knuckle up.

Do I need to have a certain card to pre-order a game I want. I checked out one of my local Targets tonight and it was slim pickings. No Monster Hunter 3, Wonderful 101, Etrian Odyssey IV, or Pokemon X/Y.

Just got my tax return and I was thinking the same thing. Checked the Target website and most stores are out of stock on Fire Emblem though. Anyone know when it says "out of stock" does that mean zero copies or just 1 or 2 are actually in-store similar to Best Buy's system?

Out of stock is out of stock in Target's system. If they are low on stock it will say limited quantity available

No. I was successful this morning with a Gears of War Judgment preorder card.
Glad I went shortly after Target opened. The stack of 12 Fire Emblems from Tuesday was down to only 3 this morning.
If you want FEA from Target, I'd suggest going sooner rather than later.

They won't give you the gift card, but they will take $25 off the $199 price.
