[PSA]Target $15 off ANY GAME with $1 Preorder sale

I tried the $1 preorder with Borderlands 2 (Vita - $31.99) and it came up $17.99 automatically. Later, I went to another Target to try it with Kirby Triple Deluxe (3DS - $34.99) and it came up $20.99 automatically. I think that means it's not YMMV and obviously a glitch.

 

UPDATE: Apparently the deal is the game must have been $39.99 MSRP at some point, which is why Borderlands 2 stacked sales no problem. I thought Kirby Triple Deluxe was always $34.99 MSRP but it worked fine for me, I don't think the cashier override anything but sounds like its YMMV. 

 

After reading some of the replys, it looks like your best bet is to PM other stores. AFTER the price adjustment, toss in a $1 preorder to get the $15 off. I suggest doing that after because some employees will refuse to give you a deal after a price match and they have every right too. Just act casual ;)

It's part of their weekly ad. No need to have a thread when there's already a weekly ad thread. Good to know it's working on under $39.99 games.

Does it work on actual pre-orders? I would love to get Smash and Omega Ruby for $15 off each.

Thanks for the thread. I never check the big threads as I'm sure many don't. MUCH appreciated!

It's not apart of the weekly ad. It's a glitch that deserves more than just a reply on the ad thread.

So do you just take a preorder card and the game you want and pay?


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Maybe it doesn't work on every game but only on the ones with MSRP $39.99 and up?

That would not work because you only put $1 down. They don't give the option to pay for a pre order in full.

If this is the case then looks like I'm getting zoo tycoon for $10

You could the last few times this promo was active, one game + preorder card per discount.

Someone should try to PM GoW Vita from BBY and/or Ghosts from Amazon and see if they get them for $5+1.


Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Yeah, if it works with Saints Row IV (assuming that's still $19.99), I might be down to rebuy the PS3 version for $5.

Minecraft is another good one at $5 if it works, especially the just-released PS3 version.

Yes it does but you might be shopblocked by the cashier.
