In line.now, someone is getting a phone contract, and the lady at the.mobile computer hasn't worked in a month and has to find out how to do the promotion.

Am I lucky or what?


I looked at the guy's screen when he was accepting my trade-ins for the promotion. It's really simple and just like their public nextworth site.

---

I wish I hadn't traded in my copies of KH2 and FFXII for the PS2 for $1 total awhile back. Totally could've used them here.

I'm confused on which games being eligible. I have copies of Madden 07 & 08 as well as NCAA Football 07 & 08 for the X360. How do I find out if these are eligible or not?

I had to wait 30 minutes as a customer was signing up for a phone contract. Left, ate lunch, came back an hour later...still with the same customer lol. Anyway, I tried to pawn off my VR Golf '97 PS1 and Tomb Raider II PS1 and no dice as I figured... they didn't show up on his mobile search. Ultimately, I traded in Burnout Paradise and Band Hero PS3 and got Uncharted 3 for 10 bucks. Also, he was fully prepared to let me do more than 1 deal and would have if the PS1 games came up.

Was able to trade in 4 game at once and got two coupons. Turned around and bought Portal 2 and Uncharted 3 for 21.xx out the door. Pretty happy with it. I traded in Elite Beat Agents, Dark Void, Condemned 2 and Timeshift.


Did you need to do 2 separate transactions for the trade in coupons? Did they scan your DL both times? Just wondering about the "1 Per Customer" limit. If they scanned your DL both times, then it's just a YMMV on the Target employee and not controlled by the system.

I'm thinking about trading in two games but one of them has a punchhole through the UPC, and the other has a slash on it. Don't want to take the shrink wrap off, and they're denied. I'd be highly upset. The two games are on their site though.

YMMV on the employee, but mine just typed in the names of the games and verified the contents. He actually seemed very meticulous(read: ANAL), but no problem for me.

I'm indecisive. I have duplicates of Motorstorm Apocalypse and Socom Confrontation (Long story) I want Rayman Origins since the instore price is $29.99 the last time I checked, but my girl and I are at the final stages. We would play it again down the line. I just don't know when.

Yeah not sure why Silent Hill HD Collection is not in stores or online for PS3?? They carry the 360 version though...

Wow, nice pull on Dead Island. Funny you mention that, I saw that when I was there trying to decide which game to get and I assumed it wouldn't qualify with it being $29.00 instead of $29.99. Here and you got away with it being free.

I also took into consideration that Dead Island will probably drop to around $10 soon for a Gamefly nightly sale so I can wait.

A friend of mine just landed Tiger '13 for $19.99 after the BB ad price match and the $20 off coupon. He's now headed to another Target to get SSX for the same price.



Yeah Dead Island is 19.99 at GS NEW. I wonder if you could PM and use the $20 off coupon. That would be free too!

I don't think he had to override to take the coupon either. I didn't see him type in his numbers or anything. I'm pretty sure it is a general $20 off coupon.

LA Noire Complete and Portal 2 would be $10, but I have a feeling portal will drop soon.

Vegas report: Worked fine. Traded in Condemned (the first one) and Conan for 360. Guy noted they were normally 71 cents and now I was getting a $20 coupon. Went and grabbed what looked like the last copy of Uncharted 3.

Side note: I previously got Uncharted 3 on BF for $29.99. Didn't play it and ended up trading it in to best buy recently for $37.50 or so. But I wanted to play it so this works out pretty well!

Update: After the mobile rep didn't show up at the designated time, I waited for twenty minutes, then went on other errands. Came back less than 90 minutes later, and now the guy "is on his lunch break."

Another customer is there as was angry that the Mobile rep didn't know about the coupon. I presume this isn't Target but an outside contractor- but still, why the hell would you not notify your reps about a nationwide promotion? When I hear about blunders like this, I'm not surprised about the business failure rate here.

the guy did say that it could work for original xbox games (but who knows, he said i was the first person to trade in games @ that location, so i don't know how accurate that is), and that all games traded in need original art and manuals traded in, with no scratches on the disc.

yeah my bad it was $30 total, $10 for portal 2, $20 for uncharted, as it was already discounted to $40 w/out the coupons.

traded in 4 ps2 games and 2 current gen games, picked up uc3, gears 3, and jurassic park. had target gcs left over from xmas so didn't have to spend any money out of pocket. also, jurassic park rang up less than 29.99 but the coupon still worked (ymmv). such an awesome deal. unfortunately no uc controller bundles to try the coupon on.
