Found everything but NES Remix. One store picked apart another fully loaded.

Yeah, all my Targets around here suck for clearance and deals like this. We're lucky if they have 2 of anything when these come up and they're gone before we get up. : \

Would love to get SMT Apocalypse for $5, but pretty sure my Target is OOS. The only game I don't already own for the $5 is DKC Returns, going to stop in on my way home from work and try to nab one of those.

My brother was able to find a lone DKC at another Target this morning hidden behind some stuff. The clerk was surprised any were still in store, and she mentioned they expect a restock of the $5 games on 1/11. Whether this is true, or if the games will still be $5 by then, we'll have to wait and see.

Yeah, my online order is backordered.  Estimated shipping is between the 9th and the 21st. 

Ugh, it's gonna get cancelled, isn't it?

It doesn't look good.  FWIW, both of my online orders (placed before 7 am on Sunday) shipped out by mid-day Sunday.

When I "pre-ordered" the X1X pubg bundle during their last snafu, it ended up as backordered, but eventually they sent it.

You must have faith in the glitch.
The glitch will set you free!!! (+$5)

Target is not discontinuing the 3DS.

Target is not clearing out 3DS stock.

Nintendo is not doing any of the above as well.

 

Target is offering $15 off 3DS video games store wide.

Which means any game that was $20 is now priced at $5.

 

Please do not spread misinformation. 

 

Edit to correct $15 off 3DS

So this is just in stores then since not every game online is reflecting $15 off?

Yeah, that was the lie a BB manager tried to sell me as an excuse for them not overriding a PM. They could have through some trickery, but she was just being her usual bitchy self.

Since my Target was sold out of all of these titles, I tried price matching one of them at Best buy.  Even though Target had the title I wanted in stock online, the manager at Best Buy would not do the price match.  They refused and said that their register wouldn't let them mark the game down from $19.99 to $4.99.  Best they could do was $9.99.  Needless to say I walked lol

There is a workaround reported: they can sell it for $9.99 and adjust to $4.99 post-sale. GL convincing them to though, as it would take a pretty chill manager or employee to do it. Or you can just chat online and get John Wick to price match it. :rofl:

Anyone find Yoshi's new island, dream team or Xenoblade and want Luigi's Mansion 2 or DKCR?

I had success price matching through best buy chat for the 3ds NES Remix. Thanks for the suggestion. One target near me had it listed in stock and a local best buy still had it on the shelf. The price match went very smoothly to my surprise. 

I have this for the Wii U but had difficulty finding time to sit down and play it.

Brickseek says my target has SMT4A, but the target site wont let me order for store pickup. I'll try after work. Wish I checked this board yesterday!

BB online / phone CSR are able to match the $4.99 price.

 

BB Store not able to match as the system does not allow it. Workaround:

1) Price Adjust in store to the max allowed which is $10

2) Complete Sale/Transaction at $10

3) Have agent then do a Price Adjustment the additional $5 after Sale is complete

It was suggested earlier that a $15 discount applies to any game this week at Target. Is this just for 3DS games, or will it work on games for other systems? And if so, can anyone confirm that this is the case based on a purchase that they made? If this isn't the case, I apologize in advance.

It's on select 3DS games, full list is available on Target.com through the weekly ad.

Picked up Yoshi Wooly World, Hey Pikmin for $11.98 on clearance and LA Noire PS4 $8.98

Not a bad haul. Plus two Bluetooth headphones for $5 each

I had to run by mine this morning to get some household items on the way to work and it was 100% devoid of anything related to the sale.  Less than 24-hours before when I picked up my own in-store order of $5 games, it was well stocked...so yeah, I'd say word has gotten around. 

 

Although another poster indicated that their worker(s) gave information about a possible restock on Jan. 11, I'd be very surprised to see these items just be added to the show floor (presuming they arrive at all).  In my experience, when Target runs OOS on a weekly ad item, they tend to sit on additional inventory that might arrive, 'magically' making them appear on the show floor the following Sunday morning.  As a pragmatist, Target cannot be making much (if any?) profit on the $5 games, and it's more likely that they're selling at a loss.  Consequently, there is little incentive for them to replace stock mid-week. 

 

Given how rapidly the online inventory disappeared, I find it much more likely that any restocks are likely to be found online (and will still be gone in a matter of minutes with the army of Alt-F5ers out there).

YMMV on price matching at beat buy. cashier gave me the same thing about the system not letting her go that low. i politely asked her if she could check with a manager to see if there was anything they could do. manager came over and was super cool. he told her to run it as apartial cash payment for the difference (or something like that, i didnt fully understand) but in the end i got the games for $5 each.

Looks like the $5 games aren't coming up on the site anymore. Managed to get one of each at least. Except Animal Crossing. If anyone wants to trade for LoZ Link Between Worlds, I'd rather have Animal Crossing.

Crap, I'm too late! The games aren't listed anymore.
