"EDIT TO ADD: POSSIBLE YMMV? POSSIBLE USA, ONLY? << It was very simple, quick and easy. I PAID CASH! NO SPECIAL CARD! I'm editing this to try and cover anything else that may be asked and wouldn't fit into the heading. If you've, TRUELY, been waiting for an opportunity like this, here's your chance! My coupon expires 6-18-11."


A very BIG THANKS to "JoeyShadows" for bringing up the FREE $100GC coupon!!!!!!

Another THANKS to "Dwarfman" who confirmed the $100 Gift Card & the $60 Gift Card will stack=$160 in Gift Cards!

Sunday May 22,2011-Saturday May 28, 2011 Target is giving away a $60GC with the purchase of a PS3. During this time, you can get the $100GC coupon and match that with the $60GC promotion to get $160 in Gift Cards!

AND, AS "YYR" MENTIONED, KEEP THE MOVIE!!!!! DO NOT RETURN IT!!!! GET A MOVIE FOR YOU OR SOMEONE ELSE!!! LET'S KEEP THESE DEALS COMING!!!!

I bought an item from the electronics section(I chose a $5 movie) and, at the checkout, a coupon printed. The coupon is for a $100 Gift Card with the purchase of a PS3 console.

I paid CASH, NO SPECIAL CARD/S OR ANYTHING.
-------------------------------------------------------
Just take a couple of $5 movies(separate transactions) you like to the checkout and watch the coupon printer. If the coupon comes out on the first try, put the other $5 movie back and buy it with the gift card later or whatever!!!!!! Posted Image

Take, atleast, '2' $5 movies(or whatever from electronics...someone bought a tv and got one) to the checkout to be bought separately, just in case.

From others' experiences, it seems to be items bought in the electronics section that trigger the coupon! A $5 movie that I'll watch, anyway? Hey, I'll take that! :D

I'm not sure if I'll buy mine soon or wait till E3 and see what the price drop is. The coupon I have Expires 6-18-11.

Almost time to test drive my New Pink Controller! YAY! :D:applause::bouncy:

Pretty sure you gotta spend like $500+ before getting that coupon.

Nope. No $500! I went in and got a $5 movie from the electronics section. Paid cash! No Target card or anything special. :D

LOL! Some of you people kill me:roll:. What would you like me to add and I will do it? Please post specifics. There's nothing special to add, but if you want me to put anything else, just say so and I will! :)

Just trying to help those who REALLY want to get a PS3!

So let me ask to make this clear. Is it buy something from electronics section on the offchance that a coupon will print out which is "Get a $100 gift card with the purchase of a PS3"?

As I stated in POST#4, I PAID CASH! No special card or anything. I'd think it's, atleast, USA-wide. I don't know if Targets are in other countries.

I saw this previously posted on slickdeals....the person their claimed it was from buying a tv. I'm not doubting you received one for buying a $5 movie, just stating what I've read elsewhere. This would be pretty nice if you can combine it with the current $60 giftcard offer target currently has, or if you can find an older model ps3 on clearance at 30% off.

Picture/scan of the coupon?

I can confirm that the coupon WILL stack with the current $60 gift card promo. I work over in Electronics and I scanned one with MY coupon I got from buying 2 Blu Rays and some random items at the front check lanes.

I will be purchasing this after work but it didn't require any overrides or anything it just had me scan 2 separate gift cards 1 for $60 and 1 for $100. Great deal!! Even if the PS3 drops after E3 I highly doubt it will be more than a $50 price drop.

Okay so my question is, how can we guarantee the $100 gift card offer will print? My problem is that I don't really want to buy one item after another until some coupon might or might not print out.

Assuming that these things print easily, is there a good way to flip a new PS3? If so, I expect all of them to be sold quickly.

THANKS!!!!!! I was wondering about that, too!!!!! :D It printed with me buying a $5 movie on the first try! :D I took a second movie, just to be sure(my own bonkers idea), but didn't need to ring that up! :D:applause:

I wouldn't go out of my way to get this, but if you were going to buy a movie or a game anyways, might as well do it from Target on the off chance you get the coupon. Especially since it seems to stack with the additional $60 GC offered this week. Yea, I'm not going to be surprised at all if the PS3 drops to $200 at E3. First they were offering $50 GC, now Gamestop and Target have $100 dollar coupons. There is no way either of the stores are willing to eat a $100 lost on each PS3 sale unless it came from Sony.

Ok I am so confused. Do you have to purchase the ps3 with the 5 dollar movie? or when you purchase the 5 dollar movie, does a $100 off a ps3 coupon print?

Thanks

^^ I will figure out how to toss that into the OP.

I bought one on ebay after making a Blu-Ray purchase in which nothing printed (except a groceries coupon). Don't have the energy to keep going back, but it will be interesting to see the criteria.

Hey, where did you guys actually buy the items that got you the coupon, was it at an actual cash register in the front of the store, or did you get the stuff rung up in the electronics section itself? Thanks
