First Vita deal I've seen yet. Get your PS Vita preorder plus a $20 Target gift card and take $10 off at checkout with code TGTGFT2U. Total is 239.99 + tax and free (standard) shipping. Maybe not much of a deal, although an additional 5% off for red card holders should negate some of the tax.

Example totals for me:
260.47 (+$20 gc) - non-red card total
247.38 (+$20 gc) - red card total

Also submitting this as a "better price" to Amazon because why not.

Edit: The $10 off $50 coupon is dead, keep an eye out for other coupons. The $20 gc is advertised to be available through 12/31. Updated title to reflect.

Does Target charge or put a hold on your account now, or are they like Amazon where I won't see any difference on my CC until they ship?

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Do you know if Target is getting that pre-release bundle (comes with little deviants and a case, I think) or if that is a best buy exclusive?

If it's everywhere, I might as well cancel my preorder and get it from Target

We'll probably see a lot of deals surrounding the Vita in the coming weeks or so. I won't be getting one, but this is good deal.

Pretty good deal if you're looking to get the Vita on day one. I'm gonna wait for the inevitable second model.

Eh, I don't buy consoles/handhelds on day one - I let the early adopters "test" them out, and if any issues arise (which almost always does for new tech), then I'll wait until they get fixed and/or revised. Pretty good deal for day one buyers, though.

Well I have the Target Redcard as well as a $10 gift card. So with the code, free shipping, 5% off for card and the aforementioned gift card, it came out to $241 shipped for me. And of course another $20 gift card comes with the system. Thanks OP.

I pre-ordered one at Amazon with the $10 off plus $10 coupon code when you use a MC. It's $225.23 w/tax at Target if you subtract the $20 GC from the total and the 5% for using my RedCard. It's $229.99 after the coupon at Amazon. So a little cheaper than Amazon but I get release date delivery.

I have my wifi paid off at Amazon. Hopefully they'll add some credit for like half off a memory card or a game.

From reading CheapyD's numerous tweets on the technical problems of the Vita, they sure are.

I don't know much about this 3G stuff but is says always connected 3G so does this model have 3G and can access the internet anywhere for free?

no. this model is a wi-fi only model, so if you are at a mobile wifi hotspot or you have wireless internet, you can use it. With the 3G model you can use wireless internet and use 3G, which means you have to pay for a plan every month. The 3G model also costs $50 more.

Does CheapyD have the issues himself? I personally don't nor my friends. I read about it but thought most of these are "hate" from the fans of other companies like with every system release.

The only thing I'm concerned about is having 3G on all of the time. I turn my 3G off on my Evo when I'm not using it, and I get a lot more use out of my phone by doing that. Does anyone know if the Vita had a widget to turn off your Wi-fi/3G?

I thought Amazon got around that by severing all ties with their affiliates in CA? Unless something has changed, I don't think CA residents are going to have to pay tax on Amazon anytime soon.
