Ghost Recon Wildlands is $35 right now. Is it worth for $26 after the discount? For Honor is $30 so about $22 after discount.

 

Edit: realized deal isn't until next week; not sure if these prices will be the same then

 

 

Tried so hard to find the gold edition a month back. Visited some targets out of state recently and totally forgot to look for it.

Just did this; didn't use a red card, but it did work. I was able to combine both offers for FIFA and card.

FIFA came out to $14.99; cars came out to $28.29 both pretax

How do you get to pre-order for a dollar, I don't see that option on the app.

I thought FIFA would come out to ~$8?

50+30 doesn't mean 80 percent off. It's 50 then 30. That's why it's not 8 dollars

Has anyone tried with 3ds games? I assume it won't work but someone got a PS3 game to work so who knows.

Just a heads up. Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens Deluxe Edition PS4 retail price is $19.99 at Target. So around $15 with the pre order card.

And the cartwheel+ 30% pre order deal does work. Tried it for Cars 3 PS4. Brought the total to around $30. Didn't buy it though. Has good reviews on Amazon but I know it will be $19.99 in no time.

I'm confused about how this works.  Can you apply the 30% off to a pre-order title or something that has already been released?

You buy a 1$ pre order card to one of the upcoming games, and with that you also buy said ps4 or xbox one game you want and it takes 30% off of it.

Can confirm this on FIFA 17, 50% cartwheel bonus applies first, which drops FIFA 17 to $20 and then 30% preorder bonus from other game (in my case COD) dropped FIFA 17 another 30% down to $14

But does it work on pre-orders?  For instance, if I purchase the COD:  WW2 pre-order card, can I apply the 30% to that game or another pre-order game?  Or does it have to be a game that has already been released?

The 30% off is ONLY applied to a game that is already released that is purchased at the same time as the $1 pre-order card.

Thanks for the clarification.  Much appreciated.

That's my biggest question too.  It works on ps3, so I'm curious if it works on switch myself.  If so, I'll scrap together some money and head to Target.

Absolutely worth it if you have friends to play it with.  I haven't laughed harder during a gaming session than I laughed playing it last week with two friends.  The game is a semi-boring cakewalk solo because your AI teammates are stone cold perfect killing machines.  Allow some friends to take those AI positions and things get hilarious. 

 

" Okay lets take these guys on 3.  Three....  two...."

" I shot that fucker!"

" Gah! that spooked my mark and now they are speeding away on a bike! We were supposed to work together, numb nuts!"

" It's cool I didn't feel like waiting and now we can run him down with our helicopter."

 

Then dozens of guys are chasing you, the chopper is spinning out of control, you forget to pull the parachute cord until the last second after you tumble out of the chopper, and you just caught a glimpse of your other buddy in the distance flying into a river on a dirt bike because he overshot a turn in all the panic and hustle. 

 

I was surprised at how bananas the game gets.  Tons of fun.

I don't play the game with my friends (I think I should though), but I've heard that one of them likes to stick C4 on the helicopter they are about to take off in "just to make it fun."

As others have noted, it's not discount1 + discount2 + discount3; rather they are applied sequentially thus discount1*discount2*diacount3. Which as expected, equates to slightly less than a sum of discounts applied at once would be.

In this case the final tally would be .95(.7(.5*$X)). Start at half off the price whatever you are purchasing rings up at to apply the cartwheel coupon discount, multiply that result by .7 to apply the combo sale discount, then multiple that result by .95 to apply the redcard discount. Don't forget to add $.95 for the preorder card assuming it doesn't have other discounts.

Has anybody gotten this deal to work with a price match? GameStop had FIFA for $30 right now.

Employee actually told me to grab a pre-order card when I price matched a game.  I'm usually not that lucky

Been looking for FIFA all over the place but having a hard time finding it anywhere near me.  Are folks seeing it in store?  I checked random zip codes in major metro areas across the US and found nothing.  Granted, this was using the Target website, maybe I should try Brickseek.
