They did this the last 2 years with the Madden games. Customers were not impressed.

So I'm wondering, would Target let me flip the doritos for a box of condoms or something ?

Think I should wait for more gift card credit or is $60 about the highest it'll get? That's pretty decent for a 360. Looking to buy two for my best friend and my cousin.

Give your date the Doritos for 'dinner' and you won't need them

I actually may get Madden.

I've got a $5 GC from some shampoo I bought last weekend, I get 10% off with a discount card. Amazon only offers $5 credit for Madden 11, so I'll trade in my copy for $10.

$60 - $6 (10% off card - $10 GC for Madden 11 - $5 GC from Shampoo = $39 PLUS a $10 GC and two bags of Doritos.

Hell yeah.

Anyone know how to trade in games at Target? Never done it before. Is it specific stores only that offer the service?

i don't think the Doritos are free, i believe you only get the gift card if you buy madden and 2 bags of Doritos so add at least another $5 on that (Doritos are usually $2.50)

Or just wait a month when the price drops in half, as it does with every single sports game every single year from EA.

As far as the game trades, the person who does the cell phone stuff is the person you talk to, (they are not target employees, they are hired by another company and they wear black shirts). As far as I know they usually come in around 12 or 1 at my store but it could be different elsewhere.

sports games rarely drop much in price unless its right before the new one comes out.

I think Target's 5 dollar discount when you buy StarCraft 2 + a game pad was already evidence enough that whoever creates their gaming deals are about as clueless as they get.

What is the deal for the PS3? That is MSRP. The 360 deal looks legit though!

Thanks for posting this!

A $20 GC with the Wii? Is the Wii still in a sales slump @ $149?

So, no deal with Madden? Seems like they are just sticking with the $20 off each one, per the $100 cert thus far. Thanks for the post.

What are the chances Amazon PMs the $75 credit with the 250 GB 360? I've got some credit to spend there.

Not a bad deal on that Wii bundle. Target still has the Mario Kart Bundle for $130 for next week, I'll sit on the fence for a better deal to come on this bundle.

Edit: Would be nice if Best Buy would price match Target's price and give you a $20 gift card.

Can't believe BB dropped the ball on Madden..no GC. I guess it's looking worse for any of the pre-order 5/$100 games getting any additional bonuses.

Pretty much, if they dont have a deal on madden, hard to say they would on something like resistance or rage. Probably on gears, COD, Batman and Battlefield they will, but so hard to tell, looks like K-Mart is the way to go again this year with added on bonuses on top of $20 coupons up front and Josh has hinted at $25's as well. He already is offering $20 coupon and something to be added today.
