The combination of not being able to use Target gift cards and not wanting to give Google any money did this in for me.  I could bite the bullet for one or the other but not both.

Thank you, it works on computer parts, but I can't decide which processor is the best. I can buy I5 8600k for $203 w/tax, or I7 8600k for $298 w/tax. Can someone have a good advice?

My opinion is that a PC always needs an i7.
Maybe not always for gaming but that’s why it’s a PC

Tried to use this deal but my order was canceled (Out of Stock). What are the odds my local Target will honor it in store?

you're actually taking money from google, they're the ones paying the discount to the retailer

 

I used it on a new entertainment center with room for a tv I've been planning on getting, and it's shipped already.

Target does not honor % off deals from other companies.

Also of note: free shipping for items as low as $15. Some exclusions apply, but the bigger stores like Target and Wal-Mart are doing it.

They were going to charge me freaking $21+ in taxes (~10.2%) on an order I was going to place that was $210. Not even close to what my state sales tax is,and somebody on Slickdeals said sales tax is taken on the prediscount price (though I didn't even input the code to see if true, as I just bought my stuff directly from the seller at that point).

Edit:
So tax is adjusted to my state sales tax? What if I buy something from Fry's, which isn't in my state and doesn't charge tax when I buy directly through them, does Google adjust tax to $0 or just back to my state sales tax?

 

Yes, I can confirm that tax was adjusted to my state sales tax. Based on tracking info it looked like the product was shipped from local source. 

 

As for your 2nd question, no clue.

Wasn't sure I wanted to buy a Switch, but at $225 (no tax), I ordered one anyways.  Too good of a deal for me to pass up.

I was tempted to use this last night on a Switch...end up with a trailer for my lawn tractor. Adulting...

Not really sure why the tax was being applied BEFORE the coupon which seems shady to me.  

But I was able to grab one yesterday.   Nice deal OP.

Probably because, to Target, they're selling it at full price.  Google is just slipping you 25% to help pay for it.  So Target still has to charge the full legal amount of sales tax.

has to be in stock locally through Express, if you don't see it in search it's probably not available

"In most states, you’ll see a tax applied to your items for their full listed price, before a promo code is applied. Exceptions apply in certain states, such as Texas, where a promo code also reduces the item’s taxable value: you’ll pay tax for the price of the item minus the promotional value.

For example, if you use a $20 promo code for a $50 item coming from a Texas store (most retailers) you will only be taxed for the $30 you paid for. In most other states you’ll pay tax for the full $50 item."
 
 
TLDR: God bless Texas.

I ordered a copy of Tekken 7 with courtesy credit they gave me after they screwed up a previous order. They screwed up this order too, raargh! I really don't think Google realized what it was getting itself into by competing in this market.

Decided to order a Seagate Expansion 2tb external HDD to use with my Xbox One S. That 1tb internal HDD is likely gonna fill up fast, especially if I download all of the BC 360 games I have.

Not by the time they sell the information of everyone who places an order.  They're not doing this as a charity or even a transparent business.

Makes sense, especially seeing the receipt.  The Bill To: was Google Express

Thanks for posting this OP, I got my Switch today, and a day earlier then I expected. I was in such a hurry to check out, that I forgot to buy any games though.

Since most of the games (and other items) I saw were full price before the 25% discount, I think you can do better if you follow this site. Even with Nintendo games (which hold their value better than most).
