I can't seem to purchase the 3ds XL on target's website. Is it an instore only promotion? Because it's telling me it's currently unavailable

Nintendo needs to fucking learn how much customers want their games. All the Targets near me are already sold out of Luigi's Mansion.

Has anyone received shipping confirmation from target on their pikachus yet? Mine says not yet shipped but that I will get it sometime in between 27-29


I'm exactly on the same boat as you.

City Target LA had at least 10 red/blue/pink DS XL's but also wouldn't sell at the sale price.

I made it at 8:20 and was the only person other than my buddy to buy one. I then cancelled my online order.

Just a heads up for anyone in the Seattle area. The $159.99 3DS XL sale pricing does not apply to the City Target in downtown Seattle.

I went there this morning to buy one of the half dozen or so blue and red systems they had in stock but it rang up full price plus tax. I mentioned the sale price to the helpful associate and he explained that unfortunately their store goes by a different set of sales. This was evidenced even further by their weekly flyer which was different than the weekly which I received from my weekly local paper.

So close!


Damn, they are building a City Target a block from my work in Portland and knowing their sales policy may be different is a bummer.

Yeah, it really is a bummer. There are enough Targets near me that it's not to big a deal, but it would have been nice to pick it up on my way to my office in the morning.

This evening, an associate at another Target told me that I could go to customer service to get other store inventory as well as find out if the sale applied. Hope that helps.

In the end, I just did a price match at a local Best Buy.

ah wait nvm, it just seems to be currently out of stock..damn, I really wanted to order one online (not in the country right now so picking it up at a store won't do).

I'm going to hope they restock again.

I just wanted to say that my walmart.com order just shipped (placed on the 24th).

No word on target.com shipments ever since I canceled from them after they gave me the runaround for the price match twice.

I searched Target and two Walmart stores last night for Mario Kart 3DSXL. No luck.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

So, I have a question about Wal-mart's ad / price match guarantee; hopefully someone with experience can help.

Let's say I buy the Pikachu XL online from Wal-Mart tonight (3/24), and print out the order invoice / receipt. In addition, I have a physical copy of a competitor's ad that has the XL at a lower price, but the ad lasts 3/24 - 3/30.

The thing with the online order is that both the "site to store" option says they will send it on 4/1. So that the ad price for the competitor is already expired, and thus WM will probably not honor it.

But again, I would have an invoice / receipt for 3/24 along with the physical ad from the competitor.

If I pick the XL up from WM on 4/1, do you guys think they'll honor the price match guarantee if I show them the original order date + competitor's ad?


If you've placed an order online, send them an email with a link to the Target ad. I sent one yesterday and got a reply today that they refunded me $55. I used the "other questions about my order" selection on their drop down menu.

And if they don't try again, you may get a different respondent. If worst comes to worst, just return it when you pick it up.

Hmm. Would TRU's B1G1 sale work after a price match?

For example, if I were to get them to price match Gamestop's sale on Spider-Man ($29.99) and Assassin's Creed ($29.99) would I get the 40% off the $29.99 price point or off of the original $39.99 price point of Spider-Man?

Just picked up my pre-order for BioShock at Best Buy...did anyone else who pre-ordered there also get charged an extra $5 for the pre-order bonus? It's happened to me once before with another game...Dishonored, I think. It's supposed to be a free bonus for pre-ordering, but I was charged another $5 in addition to the $15 I put down, making my total for the collector's edition $75.94 ($90.94 before my pre-order deposit; 7% sales tax).

I mean, $5 isn't that big of deal, but it's the second time it's happened now...

I tried this last night, and got a canned response on my walmart.com order (see below). Considering these are so hard to find, I've settled on paying retail. My time and gas money to hunt this down by next Sat will not justify the cost. In any case I have 30 days to return. Glad to see others were able to get the price match.


Thank you for contacting Walmart.com regarding price matching. We are glad to look into this matter for you.

At Walmart.com our goal is to offer you Every Day Low Prices on our wide assortment of merchandise, with added savings on some items that carry the "Rollback" symbol.

The problem is cause by bonus stuff not being packaged out correctly. It is supposed to be free, so my gaming rep sees the $5 charge he gets a manager to zero it out to remove the charge. In the future pay attention to the total just in case you need the rep to remove the pre-order bonus charges.

If anyone is wondering about 3DS XL stock, the new Target in Capitola had a case full of every color of 3ds and XL, but they never received any Pikachu models.

She scanned the receipt. Then Gears, then Bioshock. And that was about it, pretty quick and painless.

Edit: Looking at my receipt, it says I returned a Xbox game for $41.99. Then purchased a Xbox game for $41.99. Not price adjustment or anything shown.

Anyone try and price match the BOGO40 at another store? Tried at Best Buy but no luck. Should I try again or at another store? I want to pick up Monster Hunter Wii U and bioshock. TRU doesn't seem to have Monster Hunter.

Capitola is near Santa Cruz. So about 30-45 min drive depending on where in SJ you are.

Hope that's true, but when I talked to the guy that runs the game section at my local TRU he didn't think they were going to stock it in store at all since there weren't any in the shipment they got today.
