Right... and I don't understand what is so hard for people to understand.

If you really want to "game" a retailer just buy a random $60 game (that isn't retailer specific---i.e. the "Target" version of AC3 won't work) and then return it without a receipt at Walmart.

Of course that is a return fraud but at least you can pull off the "place holder"

What people will do to save a few dollars... wish I had disposable "time" to run around all day


Umm...I was able to do this at TRU with a B2G1Free sale a while ago for a game that wasn't released yet with no problems. TRU at first said that they would only refund me $40 (thinking I was trying to return the game for $60) but I stated I just wanted to exchange the game.

As for returning it to Walmart, it will be much more of a hassle. Any item over the price of $50 automatically needs the manager's approval---they will be much stricter due to the blank/AOL disc switcharoo returns. Plus, you can only do three no receipt returns a year.

I just wait until Amazon has a similar sale---last year in November they had a B2G1 Free sale----although many were able to scored a B1G1 Free due to a misprint.

I really hope they run that soon. I'm itching to buy a bunch of $20 titles. It was actually going on this time in 2010, so maybe we could see it as soon as next week. I don't know exactly when it started in 2011.

Picked up AC3 at Target tonight along with 2 other $59 titles that are going back tomorrow (only wanted AC3 for $39.99). Will pick up 3x WoW cards when I go back, still have a few months left on my Annual Pass that I owe, and my panda monk just hit 85 so I'm ready to get down with some xpac content. Works out well for me.

Picked up 3x AC3s because my friends and I wanted a copy. 2 360 and 1 ps3. It came out to 39 even with another friend using his target employee discount.

Cards work automatically, or did you have to get an override?

Wondering if this works on Microsoft Points? A 33% discount would be pretty good.

I also bought 3x WoW Game Time Cards and got one free, did not require an override, worked automatically. However, the WoW cards are in a real game case, and are a scratch off type card, not a card activated digitally at a register.

i got the specials this week for kmart that start this Sunday & they have a special for $15 off all WWE merchandise. my question is if anyone knows if i can use this towards WWE13 or will the $15 be for my next purchase? I already have a $5 off coupon so i'm hoping that I can get $20 off that would be a steal & help me out considering I'm going to be buying Halo 4 & Black Ops 2 in the future. if anyone knows or is planning to do this hit me up with a reply it would be very helpful considering K-Mart is a 20 minute drive & i don't really want to drive that distance just to find out it doesn't work. thanks!

Sigh. Tried to price match at best buy and was denied. I really hate my best buys.

Well it's against policy for them to PM b2g1 deals. People have just gotten managers that don't enforce the policy. You're better off trying to do it over the phone.

That is such an incredible idea. How did you ever think of pulling off that off?

I meant I bought 3 assassin creed 3 limited edition. And since target break down the price, it comes out to be 79.99 for 1.

I hope that wasn't a CAG that came into the Fulton and Alta Arden store today throwing a fit in guest service because they wouldn't let you do return fraud on the buy 2 get 1 free, then lying saying Halo 4 was in the ad for the buy 2 get 1 free thinking we wouldn't have a copy anymore. Hoping it was a slick deals person, I just want to say I'm glad you got denied and you should probably be less of a jerk.
