* THIS IS NOT A CONFIRMED DEAL BUT HAS HUGE POTENTIAL *

 

Beginning next week Sony is offering a $50 discount to all PS4 Pro systems (including bundles) at participating retailers and on Monday, 12/11 Target is offering $20 off EVERY $100 spent. I've been unable to find a list of exclusions (Legos, etc) but each time Target has offered a deal like this, it has included PS4 consoles including the Pro.

 

That said, a PS4 Pro would be discounted to $290 and the SW:BF2 or Destiny bundles would be $340. This beats every front page deal to date if it works.

 

Link to consoles.

The $20 off $100 off everything at Target on 12/11 probably deserves its own thread.

For games $20 off $100 is only a 20% discount which at best matches GCU, so lukewarm but nice for anyone without it.

Last time a promotion was done, it excluded XB1X so not likely, sorry.

It could also include systems like the Switch and 3DS but we won't know until a list of exclusions is shown (and there likely will be exclusions).  Of course the PS4 Pro with the additional $50 discount does trump any of those other discounted systems.

Wonder if the $20 off $100 will stack with Ubisoft promo...

Meh, I would buy the inevitable $299.99 PS4 pro slim by next winter.

I'd be in for the GT PSVR bundle since that is dropping to 199 during that time.

OP, you might want to add that it is online only.

 

"This coming Monday, Dec. 11, we’re offering our biggest Green Monday sale ever on Target.comSave $20 for every $100 you spend. What’s Green Monday, you ask? It refers to the second Monday in December, which has emerged over the last decade as a major online shopping day. In other words, it’s a day when lots of “green” is spent online! "

Updated it to be more clear, although it *might* be in-store as well. YMMV.

Is there any hints to this?  I have held off this long from buying a PS4.

This deal would be awesome if it was in-store and there was something with cartwheel.  If I had the money, I so would buy an Xbox One and a Playstation 4.

Ps4 has less than 2 years of life left in it before ps5.  Just buy and enjoy it...

You're really going to wait a whole year? Most people will forgo the Pro by then in favor of the PS5, which is likely to be announced for 2019

I just need a Switch since I bought every switch game I wanted + accessories at half off, and the pile of games/accessories is taunting me. But...must...save...money...

Consoles will surely be excluded. If Target's other sales these past month are any indication, exclusions may go even further than that. Like with Switch games.

If it does work, you could have stocked up on 10% off gift cards last sunday to take another 10% off that price.

Sony not having a modern, true 4K console is killing me. I just got an LG OLED and whole new theater system. Knowing Microsoft has a proper console that destroys everything the PS4 does honestly sucks. I don’t want to buy a half assed PS4 right now, so my only options are getting an Xbox, which don’t happen, or wait another year and deal with 1080p in the 4K world we are in.

(Realizes this would be about $250 with employee discount... gets very intrigued)

 

Random question... my entertainment system is kinda cramped with my DVR, Switch and PS4. It gets a tad hot (I know, bad!). Does the Pro run hotter or colder than the fat PS4?

Every one of these Ive seen has specifically excluded Switch games and consoles

Or just buy a Gaming PC.  If you've got LG OLED money you've got 1080gtx money.

As much as we all want this to be true, deep down, we are self aware that both the X1X & Switch are gonna be excluded.
Remember IF this does work: X1X is $499.99 & Switch is $299.99, so unless you tack a pack of gum, there's no $100 savings on the X or $60 for the NS.

Don't read the exclusion list if you want to keep your dreams alive.

 

 

It goes way beyond just X1X and Switch HW..... (Nintendo Hardware, Switch Software, Xbox Hardware, PS4 Hardware, PSVR)

Just bought a loaded 2017 27in iMac as well. Zero interest in a microsoft PC.

Tempting, 275 with red card.

This is one of the reasons I'm holding off on PS VR. I wish Sony would take a brave step to break console gamers out of the "buy it again" prison by announcing that all PS4 peripherals will work with PS5. Now that they're in direct competition with Steam, I think anything short of full backwards compatibility with games and peripherals is an insult.

Plus if you bought that discount 300 Target gift card the other day for 270 I think it was on Sunday this will be an even better deal!

*Sigh* not true since the Pro was part of a promotion over the BF weekend that saw it discounted. However, a list of exclusions was posted that claims PS4 hardware will be excluded. As always, whether that ends up being the case or not is TBD. YMMV of course.
