Allow me to ask the inevitable question - So if I bought 1 pre-order and then spent the $5 GC on 5 more preorders, would i get $25 in giftcards and be able to cancel the preorders at some point? Or if I bought 100 preorders and then spent the $500 in giftcards on more preorders *head explodes* :lol:


That's what I figured. I'd say all signs point to yes if the OP's post is accurate.

I would like to think Target is smart enough to have some kind of clause to disallow something being taken advantage of so obviously.

I'll redo the original post. You don't get the $5 until you pick up the game.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

What is up with the PS3 giftcards? Seriously? I'm finally ready to pick one up as I've saved a lot of reward zone points to cash in and get a hefty discount. I was going to wait for a price drop, but week after week they are having a free $50 gift card. Logic says this is leading up to a a price drop? Of course, missing the $100 gift card offer takes the shine off the $50 offer, so I want to wait, but I'm afraid the $50 gift card offers will disappear. Because I'll use $200 in reward zone certs........ buying it and returning it later if the price drops could be an issue as I don't want to be out my rz certs.

Will there be a price drop on the ps3? I'd like to save a little more and get it in a month or so, but if the gift card deals are gone that would suck.

Most likely there won't be a price drop on the PS3 until E3. That's my guess. I doubt you will see a price drop within the next month, but there will most likely be a price drop by the holiday season.

Well, looks like my patience paid off. I've had a $25 GC from Target since Christmas saved up for a B + W pre-order, and it looks like the game will only end up costing me $6. : D In for 1, unless there's a fantastic pre-order bonus somewhere. (Haven't heard of anything.)

yea, the gift card part of the preorder card is actually a coupon which gives you a $5 gift card when the game and the card are both scanned by the register.

Gift card deals normally mark the lead up to a price drop, and often give a hint as to its size. The GC deals usually disappear as soon as a drop is announced. So it's looking like a $249 160gb PS3 is likely, although Sony keeps tweaking the HD sizes without doing a true drop.

Guys,

Just got the last Target Holiday PS3 bundle 160 gb with Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 and Prince of Persia Blu-ray for $299 plus a $50 gift card :) Used red card and saved 5 percent as well! Nice deal.

ANYTHING ABOUT THE HTC THUNDERBOLT IN THIS AD!?!?!?!?!



Sorry for excessive use of caps lock and large font, nobody knows when this phone is launching but it could be confirmed for next monday.

If there is a mention of it, can you take a pic or scan it in?

Thanks,

Haven't seen anyone else mention it yet, but I sure would like to see an Amazon price match on that Wii.

Edit: There we go. I guess it's time to buy a wii. I don't see more than a $20 price drop coming anytime soon.

You have to bring the card with you when you buy the game. Then you receive the gift card in the same transaction. Returning the game in hopes of getting a free gift card would just give you less money to balance out the gift card. The only way to even attempt to keep it would be returning in through your id which isn't even worth the four dollars.

I'm wondering if I can price match the DQVI deal at Best Buy. I'm thinking of picking up a certain clearance game there instead of at TRU where they have bupkes.

you can probably get as many GCs as you'd like, but I'm sure they don't stack.

Did TRU have a pre-order up for MVC3 Special Edition previously? Wondering if we need to or still can pre-order it, or if TRU is even getting the version?

I'm pretty sure the action figure is your choice.

In the ad that I saw, it was a picture of a Spider-Man 2099 figure -- but I'm assuming you get your choice of whatever Marvel Universe figures (priced at $7.99) are available at your store. If your store is out of stock or has poor stock, I would just avoid buying it there.
