My target order from last year is broken, I had Crackdown 3, Red Dead Redemption 2 & Ace Combat 7 preordered. Ace Combat 7 got canceled because I didn't catch the email on time. Got the emails to update the pre-orders for Crackdown 3 and Red Dead and now the my release date for Red Dead is the same as Crackdown 3 which is in Feb..

So CS couldn't do anything, since all they said it was backordered. Ended up cancelling Crackdown 3 my self and the ship date for red dead updated..

It’s 33%. You added tax to the discounted games but not to the full price game. With three like-priced games you always save 33%.

You are correct, my math, strongest subject in high school, is off. 

 

I took the $29.33 (which is the $ per game after tax) and calculated the savings $ and % on $40 (price before tax, instead of $44 after tax).

 

So $44 - $29.33 = $14.67 savings (33%)

 

But still, these prices are very high for some of these games that have been advertised/sold in the past for $9.99-$19.99 (Digital or physical)

Right, that's why it's good for you to be aware of the "going" price of whichever games you're considering. Using your example of Overcooked for the Switch, it launched at the digital price of $25 and the physical price of $40. Meaning, the physical was always more expensive and if the digital copy goes on sale, the physical copy would have to be massively reduced in price in order to match a lower digital price.

Crackdown 3 will hit $40 or less quick, so I wouldn’t worry ^^

One can also get a sense of how hot a deal is by how hot the thread is. This deal is pretty cold as this deal is so close to black Friday and these prices are just average especially since the exclusion of some games that people actually want to buy.

Yeah, but this sale has been occurring in the same time frame every year for the past few years. It shouldn’t be any different, with people every year
suggesting to hold off on Assassin’s Creed until BF, etc.

You know you can return Black ops and get back $40 since they prorate the value of the games.

So if I buy the games mentioned for $40 each for the 2 and 3rd free, then how does the return work? I'll get $29 back for the returned game? 

 

The only time this deal was most awesome was they had a glitch one morning where you could buy 1 and get 1 free and Battlefield IV had just come out that weekend as well. Needless to say they sold out of Battlefield in their local stores. I picked up a few games as well.

 

By noon the issue was fixed. But those who went in when they opened struck gold. We found out 8am Central time, as East Coasters started posting about it, so we all in Central timers went to our Targets right away.

Even the cashiers were surprised as they rung up the 2nd game and it rang up for free, but didn't say anything. They just let it through.

If all Nintendo first party games aren't excluded I may consider:

 

Firewall Zero Hour (PS4)

Sushi Striker (Switch)

Dark Sould Remastered (Switch)

 

80 for the three seems like a pretty solid deal...

This was only a strong deal when the PS4 launched on 2013 or 2014 or somethin. No need to rush. I’m waiting for black friday

I remember picking up AC: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, and COD: Ghost that year. Surprising considering the Ps4 just released a few days earlier.

I will be checking this post midnight CST. If there are any coupon codes that stack post right away, Window of opportunity for this is very small. Would prefer to maximize discounts.

Octopath Traveler

Monster Hunter

Bayonetta 2

 

If I can get these three, I may do it.  I do not see this going cheaper than $40 on BF.

I picked up Bayonetta 2 on eBay with retail seal (used copy but sealed as if it was retail) original cover and sleeve and card, for $23 shipped. There is a seller with stupid good prices on used games for Switch. I also got Ultra Street Fighter 2 from same guy $20 shipped. All work flawlessly. And look as if they were brand new

Battle Chasers

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker / Dark Souls Remastered  / Portal Knights (trying to think of a third game for $39.99)
