Target actually has a couple decent deals this week! I like Tyrok's formatting, so I'm ripping it off from him. Sorry!

 

Available Tuesday: 

WWE 2K19 $59.99

-While supplies last, receive a free "select" WWE Funko Pop (a $8.99 value) when you buy 2K19.

 

 

Available Friday:

Activision Presents The Call of Duty: Black Ops IV- No One Cares About Single Player Campaigns; Oh, What's Up Spider-Man. $59.99

- While supplies last, receive a free dumb toy valued at $19.99 which you can return for $14.99. Add in the 5% Red Card discount if you have such a thing and you got Blops 4 for $42+ tax. Unless the discount gets prorated too? But it's still cheaper than GCU so there's that.

 

UPDATE: Combined with Red Card, the game shows a "Paid for Value" of $42.75 and the figure shows a "Paid for Value" of $14.24 on the receipt. 

 

The Rest:

 

PS4 1TB Slim $299.99

-Free year of Playstation + (a $59.99 value) with purchase. 

 

Madden 19 $39.99

 

No Man's Sky (Xbone) $39.99

 

The Crew 2 $34.99

 

Shinobi Striker $49.99

 

Ni No Kuni II $19.99

Ni no Kuni 2 might be worth a shot at $20.

That’s a stretch ... you would have to return the figure without a receipt. Most CSRs / managers will be smart enough to connect the fact that it’s a limited promo item that has Black Ops written all over it the same week the game came out. And for a lost receipt you almost always need manager approval. So no ... probably not going to be $42 ... by that logic, every game that comes with a free bonus should be discounted if you return it ... just saying man, the thread title is reaching

You absolutely WOULD NOT have to return without a receipt. Target prorates their bundle offers- hence you'd get $15 for the $20 figure and not $20 for it.

 

Thanks for trying to be helpful though!

Can't blame them for that wording. It's a game rated M but advertises that it comes with toys. Sounds like a PR nightmare.

I hope they remake the Der Riese map again for Blops 4.  I haven't seen anything online about it though.  That doesn't sound too promising :(

jfc, the receipt doesnt say “free toy.”
Again, Target prorates bundle deals. The receipt will say something like the game cost $45 and the figure cost $15.

This isnt new news. It’s no different than when Target does it’s buy one get one free on games and you can return one of the games so that you only pay half price for the other.

There is nothing illegal or sketchy about this. You’re allowed to return things at Target that were part of a bundle deal. It’s right in their return policy faq. Feel free to google it.

Hmm, pretty sure the receipt will say, "Free toy, no take-backsies. CAGers not allowed!"

Mine was vanilla. Doesn't seem like there's a way to check this given it's not on brickseek and my fake GPSing doesn't show any stock via app (probably because they merged it in store).

I'm stupidly buying BLOPS 4 just to play their battle royale mode, as I personally thought Blackout was fantastic when they did the beta. I'm getting the disc for effectively $35.88 from Best Buy, so it's practically like buying PUBG, and I can trade in the disc when I feel like I've played enough (or if they release Blackout mode separately, I'll probably just buy that instead and trade in the disc).

 

Word from analysts is that the game is going to be huge this year due to Blackout. I can see tons of people at least buying the game on PS4, since Sony still doens't have PUBG.

It's very clearly going to be a "GCU and $10 preorder cert" situation. Why the need to ask?

$48 GCU, less $10 cert from previous game, less $10 cert from this game. That's basically free money! So $28 plus tax for every preorder on the $10 cert with preorder program.

That's how it works, right?

Basically. It's CAG math, but yeah. Obviously your example double dips the pre-order discount with the next title and that's how some people see it.

Yes indeed it’s CAG/Best Buy math at work. Still have GCU so $48 + Michigan sale tax - $5 reward cert I had - $10 reward cert I’ll get for preordering. I preordered the last day before that $5 certificate was going to expire (from vacuum cleaner purchase) and I’ll find a use for the $10 preorder cert. I also think I’m close enough in points for another $5 cert coming my way, which I didn’t even account for. Obviously this wasn’t out of pocket cost, but it sort of works out in the end.

Rock on. Totally was not being a dick. I do weird justifications in my head too. I view CAG like gambling: just try to come out ahead at the end of it all, lol.

No because you're adding both precert and post cert. Did you already include the previous cert with the last transaction? Will you remember to not include the new cert in your next one? Seems like you're double dipping. The true total cost, assuming you use the cert, is $38 with GCU for each and every game.

Does anyone know how the PS4 console + Playstation+ will appear on the receipt?  Really don't care about PS+ and I'd want to return it if possible.  I know they will reduce the value somehow. Just want to know how it's split.

 

TIA
