I'm wondering this as well. I hope sale is still live tomorrow afternoon. I decided I should have picked up Black 2/White 2. I regretted it right when I got home with Paper Mario. I should have just scooped up everything I was interested in.

Aren't there usually limits on sale items? Like 3 per customer?

If that eBay guy used Target to get these games, he would actually get a lot of money. Buy Black 2 for $15 + $1 preorder and get a $10 gift card. Use that gift card on Darksiders for $15 + $1 preorder and only pay $6 and get a $10 gift card. Use that gift card on Pokemon White 2 for $15 + $1 preorder and only pay $6 and get a $10 gift card. Rinse and repeat infinitely and you get dozens of games for about $100. Done like that, that guy could make a real killing.

My local BB ran out of the regular copy Darksider II 360 so i said "Since I'm here let me see if I can do a price match on the Darksider II (w/ the hologram slipcover, bestbuy exclusive sticker on it) for $15" and it worked lol. Had to do an override though.

My BB ran out of Layton and Kid Icarus so I ran over to my local Target to get a PM. The lady who was PMing for me got hung up on the "trade it in" term above the sale price and asked another associate about what it meant. Said associate said to the other "oh, that just means you need to trade in a game to get that price".

...What?

TL;DR They wouldn't let me PM so I ran over to another retailer and got it. :/
To be honest, it kind of pissed me off.

My Target did the same thing. Tried to tell me that the 14.99 was the trade in price, not the sale price. So i told her to add it to cart and see what the sale price was. when she saw it was $16.xx she PMed for me (my BB was sold out and its not available to ship, but can still be added to cart)

Also, the only copy they had was the preorder one with the stand and AR cards, its a different sku, which she tried to argue about, gut in the end, i got it.

I just finished chaining a bunch of pricematches together at Target for this deal combined with the $10 GC. They let me do as many PMs as I wanted as long as they were different items (according to their policy you can only do one PM on a particular item per day).

Started with Epic Mickey 2 Wii for $11.99 + $1.00 preorder card -> $10 GC, applied that to the next pricematch purchase, Paper Mario Sticker Star $19.99 + $1.00 preorder card = $10.99 -> $10 GC

Used that on Darksiders 2 PS3 which was $5.99 after GC and $1 card, then Darksiders 2 X360 for the same $5.99 + GC (they wouldn't PM the LE versions to the $14.99 price, but since the LE versions and regular versions have the same UPC code it will be no problem to 'upgrade' these), then Professor Layton for the same $5.99 + GC, then Kid Icarus for the same $5.99 + GC, Skyward Sword for $10.99 + GC, and finished by using that GC for $19.99 PM'd RE6 bringing that to $9.99.

Borderlands 2 for $21 after GC was just a bit too much for me just to throw it on the backlog, especially since no doubt there will be some Complete Edition released in the near future. I'll get the Pokemon games tomorrow since it's no rush to either pick them up at the Best Buy or go next door to the Target for PM if they are sold out at BBY. I just wanted to make sure I got all the double dip games today.


These employees must be braindead or something and costing Target a lot of money. When they see people buying games that cost less than $10 after gc, but are getting $10 gift certificates in return, you would think they would catch on that something is glitched in the system, especially when they see the customer buying several games in succession. All the employee has to do is look at their own ad or the signs posted in the electronics section that say "buy 39.99 game + $1 preorder" and get $10 gift certificate. lol

If someone catches on, I can see Target fixing the glitch or adjusting their price match policy so people can't double dip like this.

I was able to get Paper Mario through in store pickup, but they didn't have Professor Layton available for in store pickup. So, I go to the store, and they have one copy of Layton left, and no copies of Paper Mario on the shelf. I got incredibly lucky, lol.

Picked up Paper Mario on Friday and am having fun with it. I've seen some people on this forum say the game is awful. I just don't get it. I've always liked the Paper Mario games and that's what this game is. Not sure what they were expecting unless this was their first Paper Mario game.

It's because there is no leveling system. Fights mean almost nothing now, whereas before paper mario was like any other RPG with leveling and stats and whatnot. Now it's just an RPG without the RP part.

Pokemon wouldn't have worked as it's only $34.99 at Target. I was going to try that.

About $20.

If you look at his feedback history, I think at one point he begged for money.

No, slidecage, I would not want to do what he does.

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.

probably not much more as the title says 56 still and he cant change that...
doing the math if it sells now he is at a pretty decent loss before fees
after fees he better hope this thing bumps up a couple hundred

Except that Pokemon Black and White versions 2 wouldn't qualify for the gift card, as they are $34.99 in store. To qualify it would have to be $39.99 prior to the PM. I in fact tried it with those two just in case it would work, and neither of them with a $1 preorder card triggered the automatic "scan a giftcard" message.

SPLASH!
