20% off gaming downloads ... including full games, add-ons, in-game currencies & season passes now available at Target.  Excludes gaming gift cards and subscription cards.

 

For the observant shopper, however, you'll know that although Microsoft may sell individual game titles at B&M stores like Target, they only pre-load the game's value to your account, and then you're supposed to buy the game using your new credit.  This is essential a gift-card for Xbox, etc.  :lol:

Pretty sure this was taken from Wario’s post, but it doesn’t start until 8/25.

I was planning to buy the MUA3 season pass so this sale is good timing.

Let's go Pikachu is already $45 digital so could be a good deal if that doesn't go back to $60.

Might get cadence of Hyrule.

Ugh, that game is just. . .not fun heh. Don't care for Go, but looking forward to Sword as a return to form.

I don’t understand the Xbox codes.

Are you saying a digital code for 2k19 is just $59.99 on a blank gift card and can be redeemed for another game?

He's saying when you redeem the card, it adds $59.99 to your balance instead of redeeming for the game.  No idea if that's valid.  Any digital game code I've gotten online from Target, Best Buy or some other website has always redeemed for the game itself.  I don't see why that would work differently for in store cards.  If it does, great, then I'll likely pick a card or two up.

Yeah I think that’s bullshit. I bought a Minecraft code in-store at Best Buy and it redeemed for the actual game.

For someone that has never played any pokemon game.. it was fun. not great, but fun.

I ultimately played it in handheld so the catching part was mainly aim the screen and press A, the joycon part did get a little old.

 

Playing a main line Pokemon game I can see why some didn't like Lets Go/Go. (I have Ultra Sun now on my 3DS, Lets go pushed me to buy Ultra Sun. Never would have bought it if it wasnt for the Lets Go Demo) I still enjoyed it, but yeah.. Sword/Shield is going to be loads better.

I played in Handheld mode for 90% of the game. It's a fun game that was really easy to get to 153 if you bought that pokeball plus (which i did) I can't imagine why they don't let you use a pro controller in docked mode.

 

I was excited for the game and it's really nice to see the wild pokemon walking around.

I was let down with the fact is was Gen 1 only. I really wanted an Umbreon.

 

It wasn't $60 good so thank you Best Buy GCU.

What mitch079 and zeldafanjtl are saying is correct. You aren't getting Xbox credit.

Not too familiar with XBox cards. But with Steam cards, gotta be a bit careful with them. Because some of them are actual game codes (if I recall. I think only GTA5 had it since it was so few and far between, or everything blended together.), but some others are typical Steam prepaid cards that happened to have a picture of a game on it. So read the back of that particular card to be sure what you are redeeming.

Yeah, I am seeing other stuff not discounted too. Don't know what the deal is. It was automatic when I bought Mario Kart 8, but it looks like the discount isn't appearing on a lot of things like it should.

Actually, it's a little more complicated. I haven't bought a card in store in a while, but it was a common practice that some game/dlc cards would just be xbox currency at the value of the item. I've bought a few items that worked this way. And a few that didn't. I don't know how common it still is if it still happens, but I think the cards that are just currency state that fact in the small print on the physical card. Seems like it was more often an occurrence with dlc.

It seems to be adding sales tax randomly to some games. Also, what is up with that BOTW pass??
