I'll be close to the area tomorrow, maybe I'll stop by. I currently have three 4GB cards that I picked up Sears for $1.97 each. I feel like 12GB of memory is enough considering most of my media is and will be physical, just need to decide if the convenience is worth the price.


I think it's much more convenient especially for the sale price. Oh yeah, she said they also have the new Harvest Moon (3DS) on sale for $20.

I'm currently using an 8GB (I prefer physical to digital, as well) and I have another 8GB and a 4GB (from the Assassin's Creed: Liberation bundle) that I have yet to open. I plan on eventually having Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, PSASBR, and Final Fantasies VII, VIII, and IX on a card (they're already on my PS3 waiting to be transferred to the Vita). Do you guys think I should get a 16GB via this deal (likely PMing at Target)? If so, what should I do with the cards I have yet to use?

I'd definitely get the 16GB card if I were you. The other cards can be used to download PSP games that are offered through PS Plus. Always a good idea to have more memory then you need because you never know.

If I were you I would first go PM the 16GB target cards if the pm is a success then sell the two 8GB for around $20. sell the 4GB too, but i doubt if someone wants it as every vita owner already has it.

What im playing:

Recently completed:
- Grand Theft Auto V ( Great game, one of the best this gen )

I'm curious if Target will still PM, as it says Not Available for Shipping and it's supposed to be in stock when they PM. I know you can Add to Cart and Store Pickup technically, but it seems like they'll just argue.

EDIT:Well, looks like I can't really confirm as the Guest Service guy didn't even bother to check bestbuy.com. Just changed it for me.
Supervisor override was required but they just came over and did it without a second thought.

This may be tangential but CEX ( webuy.com ) has the 32GB cards for $60. Shipping kills that deal (something like $12 shipping), but they have free shipping for over $100. So you could snag 2 32GB cards for $120 flat. I am still pissed at them for raising their price from $50, but this is still better than I have seen it elsewhere.

Just checked my local BB and dont know if they restocked or found them in the back, but they had one 16gb card on display. Asked them to check the price and sure enough it was still ringing up as $29.99. Might wanna check to see if yours restocked in case you werent to PM at Target.

How does the PM work at Target? As in, the same way BB does it? Just look it up and say "yes"? Or do I have to print a copy of the price from online to PM (like my Walmart does)?

Price Match Guarantee

If you buy a qualifying item at a Target store then find the identical item for less in the following week’s Target weekly ad or within seven days at Target.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com, ToysRUs.com, BabiesRUs.com or in a competitor’s local printed ad, we’ll match the price. Price match may be requested at Guest Services prior to your purchase with proof of current lower price or by bringing in your original Target store receipt and proof of the current lower price.

Price Match Guarantee: the details

The item must be the identical item, brand name, size, weight, color, quantity and model number.
Limit of one competitor online price match per identical item, per guest.
Price must be valid at the time the price match is requested.
Retail price must be shown on the website or print ad. Online prices will be validated by a Target team member.
Competitor online items must be in stock at the time a price match is requested.
Competitor catalogs can be matched as long as the catalog displays a current date, retail price and meets all other competitor ad match qualifications.
If item is not available in a Target store, a rain check will not be issued to match the online price or competitor’s print ad.
We reserve the right to verify a competitor’s advertised price and the availability of the item.

So, they can technically deny the PM if its not instock, but if they don't look to into the not available for shipping thing there is no reason why they shouldn't deny it.

Hey All,

Just a friendly FYI- on a whim i just thought i'd try to price match at pc richards for this 16gb VITA memory card and it worked.

I just printed the online page from bestbuy.com with the 29.99 price. I brought it to customer care desk in pc richards and BAM! they immediately discounted it and i got it for 30$ without any questions.

just wanted to let everyone know you can still get these from other stores as long as they price match.

Happy Caging!

P.s. the bestbuy.com printout i brought in to show...i did photoshop out the unavailable stock info and left it blank....this is how i got it since they wont PM for out of stock items...i was lucky enough the manager/clerk didnt look into it. but worth a shot. just play dumb if they question you.

LOL
I had them do it too but man they have the most non-tech savvy employees ever. Couldn't turn the Ipad on, "the case is too big it's getting in my way", can't find the item on BB.com...in the end they just used my phone.

Did Amazon ever match this or do they not match OOS items

You're bragging because you successfully ripped off a retailer with shady underhanded tactics? Disgusting.

My local Florida Best Buy is transferring one of these from Iowa for me. Really amazed they were willing to do this.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I was able to pick one up at Target with a price match. The sales guy knew what I was doing and tried to keep me from getting it but I just took it up front to a manager who handled it easily. It's really the only way to get it at this price now as all the Best Buy's in my area sold all of theirs long ago.

FINALLY! something good happened to me today.

SO i ordered a 16gb from BB through OMS, guy was super cool about it and was really helpful, said it would take about two and a half weeks, i said fine cause i thought it was a good deal. So estimated delivery date came and went and i was curious about what happened to it, i go to the store and guy says they are doing inventory all over the country so it would take a bit longer, I said ok thats fine so i left.

I got the email saying my order was ready for store pick up, so i didn't have time for about 3 or 4 days until this morning when i actually waited outside the store for 2 hrs cause i wasn't going to have time later. So, i go in and i had a $30 reward cert and $20 my dad gave me to buy my kids breakfast " by the time i got out breakfast was over and my kids were still asleep" so i decide to buy soul sacrifice. :) (ended up paying 10 for it)

So after that purchase i head over to CS and talk with the same guy, a couple minutes later he give me the bad news " the warehouse sent an 8gb, we can cancel the order or you can get the 32gb". Me disappointed, thought about it and went ahead with the 32 gb, so the guy says he can take $30 off for me cause well thats what i was saving in the other one, i tried to push for 50% but he wouldn't budge cause it needed manager override. He says its a $43 difference , i say ok, return SS and ill take the card, so he does I don't know what for like 10 min and comes back.

Summary of my reciept and what he said:
$30 for 16gb ($25 for RZ cert)
$40 for SS ($30 Cert after return said i couldn't use them right away)

$100 for 32 gb
-$30
-$10
-$60 (manually input a discount $30 for 16gb f* up and $30 for unusable Cert)

so i got it for 40 paid 15 out of pocket after $25 cert. and I got my original $30 for SS back. YAy ( i went to gamestop, had a couple bucks from GC and trade in bought SS for $2 out of pocket.)

If you're near hhgregg, try there for the 16GB card. It's $25, YMMV.

From Target's Website:
"Competitor online items must be in stock at the time a price match is requested."

All BB's in my area... hell, probably Northern California... are out of stock. How have people gotten this price matched at Target? I'm now in the market for a Vita memory card and don't want to break the bank more than necessary.

Thats it, im PM'ing Target tomorrow for this. Quick question, do I NEED to print out BB's ad, or can they/ do they just look it up themselves? I would also like to PM for Assassins Creed 3 CE, but Best Buy does not have the link up of the $69.99 price :(
