Then why even bother having a sale in the first place?


To get you in the store and hopefully you buy something else.

Can you please provide me with the DPCI for this?


It doesn't come up on brickseek. I didn't even know Target sold this title, was surprised when I found it. If I remember I'll post it when I'm home again. I travel for work so I don't have it on me.

Sadly the games I am interested in seem to be sold out already - Ryza 2 for the Switch and Y's IX for the PS4 :(

Fully plan to exploit the cancel trick on a pre-order for RE:Village and to reorder a couple board games I just bought not a week ago. Target offers so many incredible board games online only, I'm actually very impressed.

yeah, target has a decent board game selection. it seems like they've cut down a bit though as they used to carry more stuff though. surprised that they don't even have king of tokyo anymore.

Lol, that is weird. I need to repurchase Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, Res Arcana, and Arkham Horror: the LCG. I'm really shocked those last two are available from them.

We’ll see what Switch games qualify for the B2g1. I’m considering Monster hunter rise, bravely default 2, Ys ix and Cris tales.

Yes. The sale began at 3 AM EST.  It does appear to be properly coded, hence not working on Pre-Orders. 

 

Edit: It also appear to exclude some random games I was looking into.  I was focused on the board games first.

Edit: Actually it doesn't appear to have Video Games active yet. I was focused on the board games first.


Theres a ton of exclusions, mainly first party ps5 and switch games. And all pre-orders are indeed are excluded. Nothing for me

No preorders sucks. Guess we’ll just be price matching on top of it

Why is their mobile site such garbage? I have to refresh like 5 times to get the list. Otherwise it's just pulsing gray boxes that never load.

If that's all one store it's a honey hole.


Yes it was a honey hole! All in 1 store. I couldn't believe I found some of these.

Can you please provide me with the DPCI for this?


I can but you won't find anything. It won't show up on Brickseek or Target. Even when I go into my purchases on the app it shows the game but when I try to view details it gives me an error. Seems I got real lucky with this one!

Like the above post, VERY YMMV

 

I went to my local Target to pick up some groceries and walked into the game aisles to look around, and various titles were on 70% clearance. Here are the notable titles:

 

Immortals: Fenyx Rising PS4 - $17.99

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 XO/XS - $11.99

Destroy All Humans Remake XO/PS4 - $11.99

Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Remake XO/PS4 - $7.99

Dragon Quest XI Switch - $14.99

Nioh 2 PS4 - $11.99

Overcooked 2 Switch - $11.99

 

I may have missed a few. My Target didn't have any DQXI or Overcooked in stock, picked clean. I bought the last two Immortals, one for me and one for trading in, and bought a Nioh 2 and Destroy All Humans. Nioh 2 has that free PS5 upgrade so I picked it up, and DAH is something I kept looking at since it came out last year. Immortals for Xbox wasn't on sale, neither was the PS5 edition. I'm sure there were probably more titles on clearance but that's what my store had. They had orange price tags on the row of price tags for the games that are behind that locked case thing they use.

Off topic but be careful about cancelling too many games with the B2G1 promo guys. I was on SD and a member noted his account being permanently banned from doing it too many times.

Probably more to it than he is letting on.  I mean if you regularly do shopping for things at Target then I bet they will overlook some cancellations.  But if all you do is order when these b2g1 sales are on then yeah I bet you get blocked.  And it’s not like a person decides, it’s a computer algorithm most likely.

only a SDer could Fuck this up. Why even do multiple cancellations? after 2 it is a waste and you might as well have kept the original order, unless they just want 1 game at every price point or something. probably had an account full of returns and price errors too.

I'd suspect the warning isn't just confined to one B2G1 sale. Target does several of these every year and constant abuse should put a bullseye (heh) on the buyer.

I don't see how it's abuse. It's not like you couldn't return one or more games after receiving them anyway to get the prorated discount that way. If they don't want it happening and are going to be anal about it then they should just give 33% off without having to multi-buy and be done with it.

Agreed.  You have to think there is more going on than just what the SDer is letting on.  As others have correctly pointed out, canceling part of your order is NOT any trick.  It's exactly how Target handles these sales and returns, and has ALWAYS been the case. 

 

Frankly, during these Covid-19 times, I would imagine the retailer would actually prefer you cancel the order and NOT return them physically in-store.  It avoids having to quarantine products before they're returned to shelves.

There would require an absolute insane amount of purchases to warrant scrutiny. They don't target casual "abuse" from these sales, only people that are ordering like 50-100 copies with clear intentions of reselling or otherwise.

Went to the Target in Northridge, CA (on Corbin Ave, not Balboa...that one is called Sherwood Forest for some reason) and saw a bunch of home stuff on clearance, mostly for kids rooms as far as I could tell:
