Not everyone frequents the Target Thread, so I thought I might as well make a separate thread for Target's awesome current trade-in promo! (Mods, feel free to delete if repost.)

http://www.targettradeinprogram.com/ (click on red box labeled "20% Off Credit Towards Destiny!*!" for more information)

Here are the details of the promotion if you're too lazy to check yourself lol:

20% off Destiny Trade-In Promotion
Between 8/31/14 and 9/6/14 trade in eligible video games* and get the trade-in value PLUS 20% off Destiny AND get a guaranteed trade-in value on select hot titles. 20% off coupon will be valid 9/9 - 9/20/2014.

$20 Guaranteed Trade-in Value on the following select titles:

-Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3)
-Titanfall (Xbox One & Xbox 360)
-Battlefield 4 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3)
-Call of Duty: Ghosts (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3)
-NBA 2K14 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3)
-Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3)

*To be eligible for the promotion, video game must be in the trade-in catalog. Offer valid in-store only in select Target mobile locations. Search below to find eligible stores.


All in all, if you have any copies of the above titles that you're looking to get rid of (*cough* mainly Call of Duty: Ghosts *cough*), now would be the time to do it if

a) you want Destiny for 20% off (even better with RedCard 5% off/employee discount 10% off)
b) don't like/have GameStop credit
c) don't like/have Best Buy credit / don't have GCU at Best Buy
d) (edited for post #21) don't like Walmart LOL

e) etc...

Thanks for reading and have a fine day :D

Great deal for those who have COD or Assasins Creed. I might trade in my copy of Ghosts after I finish the single player. Now I wonder if the 20% off coupon can also stack with the preorder card therefore netting an additional $5 GC.

Sweet, thanks op. Do I have to trade in towards Destiny to get the $20 credit?

You don't "have" to haha. Say that you would like to then once you get the $20 Gift Card, do whatever you want with it!

GCU is better for me, and I'm going to keep ghosts to play once in a while. It's not so terrible to pop in every so often for extinction mode.

Does this work on the Special Edition?

On the coupon, it explicitly says "excludes" collector's editions. I'd say it's still worth a shot!

I'm actually curious if the Limited Edition would count too. Is Target open on Labor Day?

They are, the only days that they're close I believe are Christmas Day and Thanksgiving. Although last year they along with other stores were open at like 8pm on Thanksgiving because Black Friday is now Black Thursday it seems.

The 360 version of Assassin's Creed is currently only $17.93 at Amazon. Can make a couple extra dollars if anyone wants to buy a copy to flip back to Target.

Also does anyone know if they'll let you trade in multiple copies of the same game?

If you're not already swimming in COD Ghosts from Target last week, Tigerdirect has the PS3 version for $9.97. PM it at  Best Buy and that makes this a really decent deal.

Another option is Call of Duty Ghosts PS3 PMed to TigerDirect at Best Buy for $10. Might have to do a few copies of that in case there are any good Target glitches again in the future. Also interested to know the policy on trading in the same titles, but I can just split it up into a few trips through out the week.

It was $11.99 or $10.99 @ The Microsoft store. I also picked up Ghosts for the same price

Target is just a masochist. After they kept giving away Ghosts for a few bucks 3 different times in the last month or two - now they want to buy them back from you for $20.  Love it.

When I tried to trade in 2 of the same game at the same time, the system wouldn't let me, so I don't think you can on the same visit.

Target has so many restrications so no big deal if I missed out on a $1 or $2. You also can probably only do 1 trade-in per promo (like last time) and no duplicates. Pass.

I wonder if the $20 values will just be base values and in that case online trades would be an option too if you don't care for the coupon.

Let say you do two trade in at two different times, can you use both 20% off coupons for Destiny?

It's written in their policy to PM tigerdirect. I tried to get a PM over the phone and the woman wouldn't allow it because it says it's from a "3rd party warehouse" so I guess that aspect is YMMV. But it's only listed when you mouse over "details" so I doubt many reps in store would even notice. Going to try it tomorrow and report back.

You don't have to trade in those select titles to receive the 20% off coupon, but the games you DO trade in must total a value min of $5 to qualify for the coupon (plus be in their trade in catalog, of course)

It's just simpler to preorder at Best Buy since they are giving you a $10 certificate anyways.

Technically this is a better deal.

Preorder destiny for $1.

PM tiger direct for $10 ghosts.

Trade in ghosts to target for $20. Netting $10

Use 20% off coupon to get destiny for $48. Then another $10 off for ghost trade in and you get a $5 GC for the preorder.

So it comes out to 60+$10 for ghosts+$1 preorder - $20 TiV - $12 (20%)- $5 (preorder) =$34

BBY is just $60-$12 (GCU)- $10 preorder-96Rz points (roughly $2)= $36. And is only good if you have GCU.
