That wouldn't be the case unless you started eating the Doritos while still shopping, and I think that they frown upon that in most retail locations.

So we trade in any game and get 20% off Destiny?  How will that work given Target's current preorder infrastructure?  That being an infrastructure doesn't really exist.  You give them a card and pay a dollar.  I did that last week.  Does that mean I'll be able to trade something in and get the benefit of 20% the game?  

 

it's a unique promotion for Target as far as I know.  I don't get how it will work.

20% off credit towards Destiny plus the trade-in value when you trade in any game

Could someone clarify this? Does this mean 20% off Destiny when you trade in any game? Or 20% additional trade in toward Destiny?

Most likely a coupon prints out.

I'm amazed those guys are still in business. If anyone goes that route you should spend your points ASAP. ;)

I still like Kmart, but it has definitely gone down hill. The game section at my local Kmart is very organized, but their stock is limited to only major releases. The electronics people are nice, and I can usually find the hard-to-find limited editions there for a while ( I bought a Skyward Sword LE with the Wii Remote about a year after it came out)

There's a reason you can find hard-to-find stuff there. I had a classmate (of sorts) looking for a PS4 back in February or something, when they were nowhere to be found. Where did he find 2 in-stock, after calling every other place in-town? KMart.

 

Apparently, at one (if not both) of our KMarts (yep, we somehow have 2). they're so overstaffed or unattractive to consumers that you can go there, and someone will be your personal shopper and walk through the store pushing a cart for you or some crap.

Quite frankly, I score better deals here overall than anywhere else and anyone who frequents slickdeals knows how beloved the SYWR program is there thanks to the incredible ease of exploitation. I get more free stuff here than anywhere else. Best Buy with GCU is right there but I did have to pay for that. This is totally free. On top of all that, Kmart, of all places, is one of the few retailers that gives nice deals on brand new releases every week, including 3DS games. Oh BTW, great finds on gaming clearance too. I keep a balance of over $100 at all times(using points and earning new points every week) in points and I usually empty those at black friday-can't see any retailer going OOB before Christmas so no worries here ;)

 

Down side-as was stated, terrible customer service, both in store and online. Also, dirty, grungy stores, and Wal-Mart-esque clientele. Registers look like 1985 IBM PCs. Also, if you try to chain preorder games online with earned points you are in for a rude awakening. I have never had a problem myself and do fantastic there BUT I always pay with my Sears Mastercard on preordered games(earnign 5% back in points at all times). I only use points for tools there or at Sears, groceries, clothes, essentials. So yeah, Kmart is def not for everybody but it works great for me

I belive it means that if you trade in a game they will give you full trade in value plus 20% off on Destiny if you chose to buy it.

As I posted in the thrift store thread a few days ago, I scored a copy of Final Fantasy VI for Gameboy Advance at a K-Mart, when I visited my mother-in-law...rang up at $1.  I was happy.

I really don't mind. Of the $500+ I racked up during their crazy trade-in promo, I've spent at least $250 on groceries and other things needed around the house.

If that 20% destiny is true that's a pretty sweet deal. 20% off = $12. Plus 5% redcard. Plus maybe $5 gift card that they do for preorders? If i did this right  i think that's about $41.60 before tax (including the $1 preorder and the $5 giftcard bonus)

What $5 for pre-order? I preordered destiny for $1 to get $15 off south park a while back and didn't get any notice off making 5. Also, i should love too know how this 20% really works

Anytime you buy a $1 preorder card, it not only counts as a preorder, but entitles you to a $5 giftcard when you bring it back and actually get the game.

If that's the case, that's pretty weak. It should be at least 100% since their values are a joke.

I agree , if it is 20% off the game itself and you got a preorder card it would be a solid deal for people who don't have gcu . 60$ - 12$(20%) 48$ + 1$(po card) - 5$ pre order gift card = 44$ not including tax .
