Isn't that return fraud?


Return fraud would be like if you bought a game on sale for $30 at Target and then you went to Walmart to return it for $60.

Target's B2G1 deal allows you to return each game for a portion of what you paid from the total.

$35 for live is a good price. Is there any chance that the Xbox Next will bring about free Xbox live?

By that logic I dunno why they don't just mark off every game by 33% anyway if people are going to do that.

If this is how Target marks things, how does price match work with these deals given that target has you go to customer service after you purchase? (or do you go to the customer service desk to purchase instead?) After all wouldn't you go to them and the sale price would be minus 33% instead of B2G1 so it would already be lower? Does Price match not work?

No, it is printed right there on the Target receipt what the return value is for each of the three games you purchase. If you buy 3 59.99 games, it will say under each game the return values of each. One would be 40.00, one would be 39.99 and the other would be 39.99.

Price match will not work unless the price is less than the 39.99 return value. I know because I tried this with a gift card deal last week. I bought a game for 39.99 and got a $10 gc. Return value of the game was 29.99.

When game went on sale last week for 29.99, I tried to match the 39.99 down to 29.99. Wouldn't work because system said the price paid was 29.99.

I am certain the same would be true for this. Unless you are price matching to a price LESS than 39.99, the system will not do it.

Has anyone seen Target stock the Zombi U Wii U bundle? It's not on their site, and the closest Target is not very closed.

It's not return fraud but it's sketchy. The promo is defined by having to purchase 3 games (volume discount). So anybody arguing it's a clean practice to buy all 3 games and return 2 games is wrong. As you said, otherwise Target would discount each game by 1/3 it's price. Target is no longer getting the volume sale (3 copies) to justify the promotional discount.

This may be for Texas only. Am I the only one who noticed that Best Buy charges sales tax for the generic XBL 12-month card but does not charge sales tax for the Halo 4 or Black Ops 2 XBL 12-month cards?

Yes. Google "Best Buy Price Match". They match a list of online retailers, Newegg included. This was originally til March 2nd but they are going to make it policy to stop being a "showroom". The negative being they ONLY match themselves AFTER purchase, and then only for 15 days.

right above that it says "Only music, movies, games, mobile phones, digital downloads, pre-order, and refurbished products and products from Marketplace vendors on BestBuy.com do not qualify for the Low Price Guarantee."

which is why i said ymmv if your best buy wants to be picky about it
