Buy any xbox one system, get any free xbox one game on target.  No price restrictions right now, so works on expensive CE's and collections.

 

Get the $229 GoW 1 bundle for $229:

http://www.target.co...le/-/A-39597737

or Halo 5 xbox one S model (4k) for $299

http://www.target.co...le/-/A-51295633

 

and add any CE:

http://www.target.co...ector's edition

 

or Rock Band 4 bundle $249

http://www.target.co...ne/-/A-49162169

 

Like Mirrors Edge ($199), Mafia 3 ($149), Dishonored 2 ($99), or Rock Band 4

 

 

 

While its tempting, there are only 9 xbox one CE's listed and I don't want any of them or Rock Band 4 so why order a bunch of junk I don't want.  But I'm sure there are some hoarders and flippers out there in CAG land that would love this.

 

It works on currently shipping xbox one consoles, including the $299 S bundles, but I don't think it works on preorder xbox one S bundles like battlefield 1 or gears of war 4.

Doesn't target prorate returns? Say I buy an Xbox and get 250 Rockband for free, then return it. I should get 125 ish. Making the Xbox about half off?

Good deal but not as good as the Walmart deal I hesitated on and missed. Gonna stick with my fat Xbox One until the Scorpio after that.

 

The Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition is also eligible for this. I think that is a much better value than those overpriced collectors editions that you won't be able to resell for a fraction of the price.

No, I'm pretty sure they prorate returns. I know it will be detailed on an in store receipt, not sure about online.

Generally they've always prorated deals that involve multiple items, but, make sure the deal goes through on the computer and they don't have to override it. If they do, it'll be full price x1 and the collectors edition as no cost. This may be what someone else would want to happen, or they may realize something's wrong, etc. etc. Their systems may not show the discount early today. Although it should be working already in theory.

I'm considering getting it with the Rock Band full bundle and selling it for $100, however I am struggling to sell the guitar bundle, brand new, for just $40 in a couple sites. Not much demand for the game it seems...

I can't decide whether I want the mirrors edge CE to keep or Overwatch to sell. Hmm

I've been needing an XB1 for a while and getting some money back would be nice...

It works on the Gears console, but not the battlefield ones.

I just asked Target Chat support, their reply was "You cannot return the free item you have to return the whole order with the free item."

This is the only way it would be worth buying an Xbone right now.

I picked up a gears bundle and mafia 3 CE. I'll sell the xbox and see what Mafia gets reviewed.

I thinking about getting the cheapest S halo bundle and forza horizon 3 ultimate ed. It lets you even though game is backordered (maybe because it's still preorder?) but I'm wondering if it's more likely order is cancelled due to the backorder. I'm sure this deal won't last when they realize games over $60 are going through. I wish the battlefield bundle was eligible and horizon 3 was not backordered so I can get least get the game now before they change terms of the deal.

 

Edit: in case any one is wondering, deal doesn't work at toys r us or bestbuy (meaning no glitch that allows for game over 60 to become free...I tried)

Items are prorated. They didn't have the $250 Rockband, just the $170.20160925_123036.jpg


Sorry about the picture, doing it from my phone

still puts the cheaper S console that's 300 at around $200 posttax if you return rockband, not bad.

Wow, so... that's not even a glitch in the system, that's legitimately how they would process a return for this? That's really tempting.

I hope they don't fix it in store by 4pm because I'm gonna watch the Panthers game first. $200 for an S sounds good to me though plus I already have the Halo games so I can sell those to make it even cheaper.

anyone know how heavy is the MIrrors Edge CE or Overwatch CE? Planning to sell one of those on ebay. Shipping will be ridiculous unless someone near my area buys it. I just want the console cheap.

Yep people on SD are reporting ordering the consoles for pickup and than cancelling the games and getting the prorated amount right off the console at pickup.
