Don't know if you saw my post earlier but I would spend the credit ASAP.  I received around 450 extra on a trade in that brought the total to around 600 on Tuesday.  I used 550 to order an XBOX One.  When I tried to use the card on Sunday, the card said it had a 0.00 balance.  I checked the balance online and it showed where I had paid for the XBOX One and that I should have around 46 dollars in credit left, but the overall balance said 0.00.  So, apparently the system fixes the card balance over time.  Over all, I can't complain too much.  Still turned out to be a pretty good deal even with the missing credit.

What the .... what glitch is this? I did like 7 trades over the course of that week and none of them glitched. All my gift cards had the correct values.

When the system was down the first couple days attempts to load the gift card came back as "unactivated" when in fact they were being activated and added each time the employee attempted to scan the card.

Btw if you have a discover card make sure to go through there when buying the visa cards off of the target website as it seems to give cash back I just got back 31 dollars from buying 600 worth of gift cards so it pretty much makes up for the 6 dollar per card activation fee so you literally only lose 5 dollars lol which is awesome

I'm sitting on my $540 in credit until E3.  I have a feeling Sony will make some sort of bundle to one up Microsoft's price cut and then I'll be forced to make the PS4 or Wii U decision.

sony doesnt need to one up microsoft, they already have for the past year

Don't you actually need to use the discover card to buy the cards though to get the cashback... ?

i thought a target mobile employee confirmed the triple value came out of target's pocket just to bring people into their stores and nextworth was only giving them the original value.

 

this makes it seem completely false, maybe we will some some major price adjustments soon

So that actually works?  wtf?  If so, that's fuckin' ace.  Might have to give that a go myself then.  Then again though, why not wait until Discover offers 10% cashback on Target.com to completely offset the cost?  lol

They do that from time to time (the 10%).

Hi everyone - 

 

Let us look back at this crazy promotion. 

 

At first, I was going to go bananas on this. But then, as I looked at the games I was going to trade in, telling myself that I would buy some of them back down the line (Dark Souls II, Bravely Default, for example), I asked myself for what? 

 

Watch Dogs came to mind, but then I thought how I would get that game three weeks later, when it will likely drop to $35-$40. Did I really want an XBOX 1 when I already had PS4? 

 

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I wasn't willing to part with some of my beloved games. Mind you, I'm one that keeps certain games - Fire Emblem, for example comes to mind - and beats then flips other games - Bioshock, Splinter Cell, for example. 

 

In the end, I got rid of three games for $90. Getting $48 for Black Flag was too good to pass up - that game will be $15 in no time and I played enough of it already. Zelda Link Between Worlds was hard to let go, but I was done with that game and didn't see myself coming back to it. 

 

I decided to part with what I didn't want anymore. What's interesting, is that the "triple bonus" might not have been as lucrative for some as it was for others.

 

My buddy had COD Ghosts and Infamous for the PS4. Target would have given him $72. Gamestop? $68. I'm not sure if that included his 10 percent bonus or not, but the difference for him was minimal. 

 

Some made out like bandits with this promo, and I'm happy for those of you that did. Some of us might regret trading in some of our beloved games - you have all this extra credit now, but you might be buying a game for $60 when you would have likely waited to get it for $20. We all have backlogs. All of us. 

 

In the end, I'm happy I didn't throw my collection for $300 credit hat I wouldn't know what to do with (in terms of buying video games).

 

I'm cool with $90 for three games I don't play anymore. 

 

Thoughts?

I know what you mean...

 

I decided not to trade in Mario Tennis, Baseball and Double Dash (all Game Cube) for that exact same reason. 

 

But I did trade in The Show 14 and Nascar right away.  I mean, I paid $30 for the Show 14 after tax (during the buy 6 get 40% off promotion) and paid $15 for Nascar...so to get $54 and $36 for each was just too good to be true. 

 

I also traded in 6 random Cube games for $30...originally I paid about $10 total for these in 2013 during the Gamestop 75% off sale. 

 

But the one game I wavered on was Metal Gear Legacy.  When it was $15 base on the first day of the promo I thought about trading it and decided not to, even though I only paid $30 for it on Amazon on black friday.  

 

But then later in the week I thought about it...I already have the collector's edition of Metal Gear Solid 4.  And there is another collection with MG 2, 3 and Peace Walker that is already out there for $20 or so.  And I could care less about the 2 graphic novels. And the MG creator is probably gonna release yet another collection in the future.  So I took out the xtra booklet and VR mission and MGS 1 dlc and traded in the 2 disks.  

 

I only got $34 for it but if I had been more thoughtful earlier in the week I coulda got $45.  That was a case where I got too sentimental and missed out on $11.

Very true...well for me my logic ended up being that I would trade in every game that I am not actively playing. There are some where it may have been a waste to trade in. Super Mario 3d world I beat but will be hard to rebuy for much less than the 45 I got. GTA V I will probably rebuy, also 45. Zelda windwaker for 30 may not have been wise either.  I feel good about trading in my physical copy of pokemon (one copy is enough...), diablo iii(ultimate edition coming out), AC IV(barely played just sick of AC), fire emblem(beat it, great game though), , zelda ocarina (have played this game enough)...so on and so forth. I traded in enough to get a PS4...all I have is NBA 2k14 and i am not sure what the next game I get will be. Hopefully Rockstar will announce their game soon.

I regretted trading in Super Mario 3D World. I just got a Wii U after trading my Vita on Craigslist the day before the promo started. It came with 3 games Wind Waker, Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land. I traded in Wind Waker for $45 assuming I'd just pick it up with my Mario Kart freebie. I got $52 for Mario 3D World assuming I could get it cheaper (I was wrong). Wound up buying it back from Target for $50 after a price match to Amazon. I ended up losing like 3 bucks with tax. The only misstep I made with this whole promo.

Actually in the whole scheme of things, it seems like everyone is a flipper in one way or another.... 

 

I mean while this country is going to the shitter because we lack productivity and creativity to generate real wealth, all this flipping is keeping the economy looking ok..  As long as money is being moved around and huge debt is created, we are looking well from a economic standpoint.  :P

I was excited about trading in some of my games for an unusually high profit early in the week, but life got in the way. I've been looking after my girlfriend who just had a major abdominal surgery and needed constant care. She's relatively new to gaming but very enthusiastic about the hobby, and I'm always providing her with new and more challenging experiences culled from my collection/backlog. Watching her experience Knights of the Old Republic for the first time was worth missing out on some money.

And yeah, I was laughing at the $150 worth of groceries lasting 6 weeks too. Man, if only... That is barely a day's worth in our house. (I'm exaggerating but not by much). I guess that is why it amuses me to see so many people jumping through hoops to convert the Target credit to something else. Mine can be used on just one "household stuff" trip to Target.


Amen. Target credit is as good as cash if you have a family, unless the store is far away.
