Just some math for those that are curious -- Target changed their Promo with the $1 preorder cards from taking off $15, to a 30% off percentage.
In terms of a game at MSRP of $59.99, it's actually better since it's $18 off (or $17 if you factor the $1 preorder card cost). Which automatically makes this better than Best Buy's GCU (which is of course 20%), except that it's a limited selection, and GCU applies to all games (and you get BB points and etc).
If you PM an eligible game to bring it down to $50, then the 30% will take off exactly $15, which would match the old Target Promo. Anything lower than $50 PM will reduce the savings, to mitigate Target's losses.
$60 -> $18
$50 -> $15
$40 -> $12
Either way, a PM and a 30% is still damn good. Just have to remember to apply it to an eligible game, get an eligible pre-order card, and don't mention the 30% Promo. The fact that it's automated makes it better IMO than BB, since if you PM at BB, you might have a tough time trying to get 20% GCU to work on top of it (unless it's automated too, I don't know for sure).
Yeah this is a good deal. Back when they had the $15 off by buying a $1 reservation card, I pm'd a bunch of games first then got $15 off and traded them back to target and made some $. I'm pretty sure we'll be able to price match in this deal too but the problem is I don't want these ea games. If battlefield 4 goes down to $40 at amazon or something, then that would be great.
