Target.com is holding a Call of Duty themed sale, May 14th only. Free shipping.

:360: 4000 MSP Card (‘Call of Duty Elite’ card art) - $39.99
:360: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 - $37.99
:360: 320 GB MW3 Console Bundle (Two controllers, Headset, MW3 Game) - 299.99
:ps3: Call of Duty: Black Ops - 28.49

Earn an extra 3% back at Target when going though shopathome.com. New ShopAtHome members are eligible for a $5 sign-up bonus as well. Earn an additional 5% back with your Target RED card.

I’m 98% sure you don’t have to redeem the points card specifically for Call of Duty ELITE, it’s just the card art. Keep in mind the other 4000 MSP cards are not on sale though.

I was just about to post about the 4000 msp card. I don't have much experience buying points (bought only one card so far - 1600 pts for $18 from Amazon). Is 4000 points for $39.99 a good deal, does this price happen often or does it go lower? Thanks for any input on this from veteran point card buyers!

The retail value of a 4000 points card is $50, so this would essentially be getting the card for 20% off -- pretty good, methinks.

Buy.com sometimes offers them for $35 via Ebay, or one of Ebay's daily deals.

However, it's been a while since I've seen them that low. This price is decent if you need points.

4000 pts for $39.99 is a decent deal. Sometimes..not very often you will see 1600 pt cards for $14.99 or rarely 9.99 and 4000 sometimes for $39.99. So it's a decent deal. You can never tell when they will go that cheap or cheaper again. Its really a do you have a use for the points right now situation. If you are buying 1600 pts cards for $17.99, you are essentially saving an additional $5 this way.

This is a pretty good deal but I'm not really in need of any points right now and I don't really see anything exciting coming from Xbox Marketplace. I may bite if Amazon price matches to get free shipping and save on taxes.

Ordered 3 point cards. Red card and possible multiple cash back portals makes this the best deal since the eBay daily deals, if not better for some.

Thanks for the input on the card all, gives me the info I need to decide. I don't have a pressing need for points right now. I'm considering minecraft and settlers of catan but would only need an extra 1600 to make that happen.

Minecraft is 1600 points by itself.

Already have enough for catan. Was hoping it would be a deal of the week sometime though.

Typically point cards are tax-free (even in store). This isn't always the case, but I've always picked them up sans-tax at local Targets.

Also - for folks who have the Target Visa / Credit Card: You get an additional 5% off the price, bringing it down to 37.99. Definitely a good deal - especially if you only buy stuff on XBLA when it's on sale there, too.

This isn't true for some states (AL, NY, etc.). Some states the cards are not considered to be gift cards and instead of classified as taxable goods.

Yep - definitely YMMV. But it should be consistent (either tax free or not) in your state across retailers. Though again, even with that, I've seen some stores still charge sales tax. Targets in Missouri don't, in my experience.

The nice thing is, the potential tax was noted during the checkout process, so you can confirm whether or not it's tax-free.

Not bad price for that 360. I'd rather have the Gears of War one though.

Check eBay too. I picked up Catan, Pac-Man CE, and Poker Smash from a seller for $8 for the lot. It was a while ago now but I bet you can still find some.

That points card, is it really a points card, or is it specifically for Elite? The cards says "redeem for Elite" or something to that effect. I figure it's probably just points, but would love to hear confirmation from someone that has actually redeemed one of them.

Maaaaan...sure wish they had PSN $50 cards as part of the deal. I just upgraded my HDD, so now I've got some space for all the PSN games I want!

A lot of places have "Low Price Guarantees" which will refund the difference if you find it cheaper within so many days. It's worth trying.

Picked up two of these. Many thanks OP!

More likely these cards are just general points cards that happen to be themed. The same thing happened with the Rock Band/Guitar Hero ones a few years ago so I wouldn't be surprised if this is the case. If this was only for Elite, I'm sure that the card wouldn't come with a point designation at all.
