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.

I have an xbox 360 Gears of War Edition (320GB I believe) and a slim 260GB PS3.  Both are collecting dust since I have a PS4 and XBOX One and I would liketo trade them in.  Has anyone tried trading in both to Best buy and getting 2 $50 coupons? I would not mind another Xbox One for the Family room.

I'm sure you can easily get two coupons.... What i'm wondering is can you stack two of these coupons and get $100 off the Xbone.

I assume you mean under for $40 for Battlefield 4 on PS4 because it's going for $28.33 for xbone right now one amazon.

I'm curious to see how long this coupon is good for.
I don't need another Xbone right now, so hopefully I can hang onto it until BBY offers some other deal.

This has already been known. What is unknown is the other in-store titles that the ad mentions.

Potential for a pretty good deal if they'll match the Target $50 gift card w/ console purchase.
$150 trade, Mover's Coupon, gift card....
Not sure they'd PM that deal and let you use the coupon, but worth a shot.

Whenever they price match an item, their POS prevents any coupons from stacking.

 

In the past, using any GCU coupons with a price match would never work unless the manager was willing to override the price to what the final total would be after both discounts.

At Target now. They are just now putting up the sale signs. Can't they fucking do it before the store opens?

#130 Flacksguy  

Posted 03 August 2014 - 01:14 PM


Well, still a decent deal with the $150 trade and the Mover's coupon. However I'd like to wait and see if that $50 trade coupon has to be used the same day or not. It would be great if it had a window of a couple weeks/ months, so we could possibly use it down the road when BBY offers something extra with a purchase of an Xbone. The $50 MS card from a couple days ago would've been enough for me.

Depends on the store. Sometimes you don't get time to.

So the buy 1 get 1 25% off PSN/XBOX cards is in-store only? Tried online with both e-mail codes and physical and neither show discount. Would of bit if they did online but the closest target is about 15-20 minutes away so it's not worth it in gas spent.

 

EDIT- Will Best Buy PM the Target 25% thing? Cause i have $20 worth of reward certifs. Might make that drive worth it.

It may be time for me to unload my 360. Only problem is I can't find the plastic door that covers up the hard drive slot? Any chance they'll still take it?

Also, the buy one get one 25% off works on Nintendo eshop cards and others (google, facebook, etc.) I just wish there carried $10 Psn cards.

going to pick up two $50 PSNs. Get Destiny Guardian edition digitally. 89.99 so 10 bucks left over it should cost 87.50. Not too bad

So, the question is, do I care enough about this to deal with the Target staff, so I can get $50 in LIVE money for $42. Sometimes, the deal's just not worth the hassle, and this is right on the fence.

the coupon will most likely expire on the last day of the trade in promotion which is the 9th

Someone should definitely try this along with trying to buy a One with the $50 coupon along with a Target PM and the mover's coupon 0_0. Good deal of it works XD
Almost forgot that it can be combined with the ibotta app. Extra savings

No problem with Steam cards on this deal, aside from someone hiding them behind some PSN cards.  Guess what dude?  I put them out in the open in the right spot!

Just saw in Target 20 off COD ghost(xbox one, ps4, ps3,360) with a pre order of destiny or COD. You should be able to PM walmart and get it for (20, 9,2,2)

Thanks for the ibotta tip.. Didn't realize there was a rebate for best buy.. I have $20 in rewards, mover's coupon, and with that extra 20 back, it'll be a solid deal with the slim trade in. Will wait and see what kinda luck others have with the Target PM before I head into BB

you realize it will be a ymmv experience, since bestbuy does not price gift card / bundle deals. even if one person comes back reporting a successful price match . it does not mean you will have the same luck.

Can you buy 2 different gaming cards (like eShop and PSN) or do they have to be the same kind to get the discount?
