In store you have to price match Target.com for 32.49 then preorder a video game for a 1.00. The preorder gives you a $20.00 discount this week. Total out the door was $13.49 plus tax.

Also some other video game price matching possibilites are being discussed in the target ad post that were posted around the same time.

Maybe I try.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

This isn't YMMV lol I've done this around the same time last year with Tomb Raider and got it for 1$ by price matching somewhere else and then buying a preorder card.

Yup. You can PM Black Flag to Amazon and it should only be $12-13

EDIT: Just checked Target.com AC4 is only $30 on there so PM to that and only pay $10

Also for those trying to do these it is YEMV. Target has been sending memos out saying don't do a PM + preorder deal but I did it a few weeks ago at a few dif stores and never had a problem. Try buying a few other things so it's not as obvious and dont hand them the preorder card till last.

Hmm....sounds like I'm going to buy Ghosts then. And maybe AC4.

Red card adds another 5% off.

A lot of people did it successfully, and some people got denied by managers saying they couldn't price match and do the preorder promo, even though the system allowed it. Rumor has it that they are cracking down on this sort of thing, but there will probably still be success stories. Still, YMMV, even if you were able to do a similar thing last year.

You can easily push the topic just bring in their price match policy and tell them to show you "where" it states that if it isn't in their policy they can't really do that. If they do you just call corporate in front of them and ask for their name. Corporate hates hearing bad things about stores and the manager will likely just let you do it if you push it enough since there is nothing in their policy saying you can't price match and get the in store deal.

They are knocking 20 dollars off any game if you pre-order something?  Saw the ad, my bad. Remove this post mods.

Don't be that guy. Store managers have final say. Raising a stink is just so unnecessary.

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.

I agree. If they tell me no I would just say thanks and come back later or go to another store. The more of a scene you make the more attention it will bring from employees. Yes you could call corporate but I wouldn't want to get somebody fired cuz I was taking advantage of a flaw. At the end of the day we know what we are doing. Don't be a dick about it.

How is that a flaw? Someone knew what they were doing when they made the ad. They are sitting in front of a computer when they make it so they clearly knew CoD was on sale and they still put this deal with it. This doesn't happen once in the blue moon this is a constant thing that happens with Target. Last week was X1 with Target.com price match and Cartwheel. Not even a few days later it is Xbox 360 and in store ad.

Taken from their corporate policy.

Item exclusions:
 Items part of movie/game reservation card promotion.

Target.com and target b&m are seperate entities so prices may vary obviously.

Pretty sure that is fairly new, probably in direct response to the Tomb Raider thing, and, BTW, I got in on the TR deal back then, too, but I also got denied at one store by a manager who yelled at me and kicked me out.

I had success with Tomb Raider last year (twice!) but not expecting the same results this time.  No way anyone should call corporate...I shop at Target way too much to want to make a fuss over $20 on a video game.

That's why you do some regular shopping too.  PM the game, give the a few other things to ring and then the reservation card.  

 

Too bad it's not for the xb1 versions.

Newegg as the XB1 version for $40, so if you can get them to PM, it would only be $20.

 

EDIT: Amazon also has it for $40, but it also hinges on if the reserve discount applies to X1 games.  I didn't read the ad yet...

 

EDIT #2:  Nevermind.  I read it. Shutting up now. :lol:
