Target Ad 3/5-3/11: B2G1 Free is back! Excludes Switch Games :(

B2G1 Target Switch Has Games?

If you have GCU you could always try price matching at target. I've always gotten lucky had my target price match Bestbuy GCU prices. I might take back my copy of Nioh and resident evil 7 that I got from bestbuy and purchase Nioh and Horizon and get Nier or Zelda Wii U. 

 

Here's the best combo

Nioh  + RE7 get Horizon free

Nier + Mass effect andromeda get zelda free

 

Got a strange feeling there will be a cartwheel coming out that same wheel ya'll. Switch launches that weekend. There are going to be a lot of gamers who be popping into target hoping to get one. But won't be able to get one. Not to mention a bunch of new games. What better way to keep one ones who weren't able to snag a switch than to offer a buy 2 get one free with redcard and cartwheel promo.

At my Targets they use their own tablet to Price Match so unless they let me login with my GCU account, I don't see how this is possible.

I saw it asked upthread but didn't see a definitive answer: can we or can't we use this for preorder titles?

 

I sincerely doubt it, but it'd sure be nice.

Yeah I've gotten lucky and always brought it up on my phone. Honestly this is a big indication that the switch (And obviously this is nintendo's M.O) that there won't be any non-preordered Switches available.  I'm calling it though a B2G1 free with cartwheel and redcard discounts.

I'm gonna say mostly likely but don't expect it to be like the holiday. Lots of buyers were able to buy 2 get one free and cancel the two and still get the one for free.

Not what I'm talking about at all. That's not a deal, that's just theft.

Ah, I see.

Yup, even with RedCard puts you at $38 per game vs $36 with BBY GCU and VCO plus you get BBY points. I get the feeling this will keep coming back every couple months or so at the rate they are going right now.

For some states going digital also means no tax (e.g., CA). Just something to keep in mind.

I'm assuming this is a YMMV deal & not a definite thing in every store. If Target would price match GCU with this offer than I would prob get a few games. It doesn't make sense for me to purchase games anywhere but Best Buy or sometimes Amazon to save good money with the exception of if there's a really good deal that I couldn't pass up somewhere else.

I'm surprised there isn't any arguments about math yet...

When does Best Buy usually do B2G1 free deals outside of Christmas time?

Oh and after xmas. This sale is clearly to keep the frenzy going for switch launch.

I'm tempted to pick up Horizon if it gets good reviews, and while the "must purchases" in the next couple of weeks will not be part of the sale (I can't use the sale for Switch games, Target usually doesn't get the Atelier games), I'm sure there's two other games that could fit the list.

You should game share ,unless you're against going digital.

Really against digital, but we did try to game share something digital (I can't recall what it is) and it was confusing and didn't work out

I'm going to assume you don't frequent many gaming media sites.

Did they exclude Switch games since there isn't 3 games anyone would want at launch? Hey-o! Zinger!

Kinda off topic but what's the buzz about the new Ghost Recon game? I've been kinda lukewarm about Ubisoft games for a while and haven't heard much about it until recently.

Kinda lukewarm seems to be what I've heard so far. Open beta goes live in four hours and can be downloaded now if you want to try it yourself.
