If they put them up online I'd be in for 4 or 5 point cards.

Don't remember where I read it, but Target did make it clear they weren't going to compete on BF or Xmas Holiday sales. It definitely shows with that pathetic ad. They're counting on the sheep that already shop with them to be clueless about going else where. Fuck that and Fuck them.

My same thought. I like the one at BB more though. $200 for the COD LE one.


But isn't the 200 COD bundle at best buy going to be gone in the first 30 seconds of Black Friday?

the $10 MSP and maybe the $1 dvds, and $35 for Need For Speed & Borderlands 2 are good deals (albeit other stores are offering the same for the games). Overall this is rather pathetic of an ad. Looks like Target will just be a last resort if I can't get anything elsewhere.

Lol you're awfully angry at Target for not contributing to the black Friday stupidity. More retailers should go this route. Would keep these companies from trying to steal Thanksgiving from their employees. Either way, more power to the people who embrace and brave this madness. Amazon is the only place I shop on black Friday.

Kind of looks like it says 1500 points, would be sad to go through all the work of technically not stealing to find out that it's the wrong sku.

1600 point cards are also kept at some checkouts at my target so keep an eye out there cause people might not notice them there.

You might get lucky with the MSP's (hoarding cards) but from our store we sent a memo out to get distributed that these should be limited, recommendation is 2 but what who know what corporate does in the end.

Really? Nice, then since I can get LBP Karting there instead of trying to go to the madhouse that is Walmart.

Or even better I hope Amazon matches a lot of these deals and I can stay home entirely ;).

I kind of doubt it. It's only $50 off and early previews of the game have been pretty mediocre to negative, so I can't see people storming Best Buy to scoop them up, although anything is possible.

You're thinking like a gamer...

Think like a soccer mom. Hmm $50 off Vita AND you get a one of the biggest name franchises with it. Yeh, it will be gone in seconds.

nope, nothing to see here. man this black friday is gonna be easy for me. just kmart for max payne 3, and then some blu ray movies at best buy. i decided not to get games that are $30 namely because i STILL have games sealed from 1-2 black fridays ago, dont needmore backlog. By the time i get to ACIII, it'll be $20 lol

Soccer moms buy stuff for kids and tweens. That's not really the Vita demographic. If it was a WiiU sale, I would say absolutely. I can even see them snatching up cheap 3DS units or Wiis or the bundles with the Skylanders packed in or even the 360 and PS3 bundles, but not a $200 portable that isn't exactly in demand.

My wife said Target was pretty calm last year...probably will be even moreso this year with the weaksauce all over the ads.

If Walmart matches the print BF ads, then I'll get the 1600 msp from them instead of from Target. Though I don't know if I'll be near one on Friday. Hmm...

Walmart matches black friday ads per corporate policy. Any store that doesn't is going against company direction. Last year they even ran television/radio ads stating they will match.

Well now my Black Friday plans are up to Amazon, Best Buy, & Walmart. Because Target failed like Amazon did all year.

Point cards will be hard to PM since they have to be activated. I can see Walmart giving push back on them.

Target top management seems to change their market strategy against us, cheapies.
Items on clearance have been getting rarer and rarer this year, final clearance gone from 75% to 70%...
Now, this BF deals, terrible! target seems to focus more on normal price model, not cheap-but-sell-a lot model anymore.

Pretty much what their CFO said though.

I don't think so... but I figure a better chance than Target honestly. Not sure really.... I think BB would have more in stock and more soccer moms at Target.

Edit: Plus I have Lego Batman 2 on the PS3... does that work for cross play... son of a bitch. Going to Target now!

As long as they don't try and limit them I'll pick up for sure about 5-6 of the points cards. Disappointed they are not price matching this year like they did last year. And mind you with the 3 month cards last year they did not have a limit on those as I picked up 8 of those (PM Best Buy's $7.99) and then on top of that got my red card discount as well.
