Saw this at Slickdeals. Apparently Target sent an email to their customers about this Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Zelda Link's Awakening or any Switch games plus you get a $10 giftcard as well so check your email if you got one.

 

In-store only.

 

Note: Reports on slickdeals you can also do this too with an online chat rep.

This legit works. The first person I chatted with told me to place an order and refunded me $59.99. And they gave me a $10 gift card.

Even if you didn't receive the email? What did you tell/show the rep?

I told them I got an email about a b1g1 for Link's Awakening and that it doesn't work when I try to order it. The rep seemed to know all about it. They said it was an in-store promotion only (it's not btw, it's a mistake) but they would honor it anyway because they want to keep customers happy.

Wow, that's awesome. I never have luck with stuff like this. Congrats on a great deal.

You should give it a shot. Most people are having luck from what I've read on the SD thread.

I'll try, but I won't get my hopes up. Thanks for the info

The Target chat agent just did this for me. He seemed to know about this deal but also said some things that suggested he didn't know about the deal, but he made the adjustment without any hesitation whatsoever. Is the $10 gift card from the buy $100 for in-store pickup and get $10? Because that gift card is still part of my order even after the price adjustment.

I just got shot down. I probably waited too long. 

 

 

Edit: The 2nd rep went for it no problem. It had to be a store pickup. It also still got me the $10 gift card due to it originally being over $100 lol. But, due to that, they only refunded me $50.

 

So for $64 I got two copies of the game and a $10 gift card. Not too shabby at all.

Did the same some hours ago. Apparently it was supposed to be a deal (based on my CSR) but was scrapped. Since emails were sent out some are honoring it but it'll likely be shut down before long.

Worked for me when I saw it on SD this morning. I ordered two Zeldas, but apparently people were able to get other games like fire emblem or pokemon sword as their free game.

You can just exchange them in the store.

I got Zelda and Mario Maker 2 for $62 on first try, so it doesn't hurt to try yourself.

Wouldn’t they just try to refund and then sell you the new game? Do you ask for a straight exchange?

I feel like some employees would give u a problem

Just tried it and got denied.

 

I might try it again and see if I get a different rep.

 

EDIT: Tried again and the rep told me it was a in-store promotion only and I would have to go to the store for the deal. After reading others who tried in-store, I don't think it will work.

I haven't done it yet, but in the past I've exchanged games from the B2G1 promotion with no problem at all. I'm just assuming the same thing would apply here as long as you choose games of the same value.

 

You always risk running into a junior detective though so YMMV.

I just got the deal, but I'm certain the gift card is the one from in-store pickup of over $100. I don't have any targets near me, so I couldn't get it.

Trying to get it through Chat, they don't seem to know anything about it.

So, I did not get the exact deal, but something similar. The chat rep basically said it's not a real deal, but they gave me a $60 giftcard when I placed the order. So no extra $10 gift card, but still basically a buy one get one. They even added the tax onto the giftcard. 

 

Here's a portion of the Chat transcript.

 

"Me: No, It was for a free game. According to the email, It was a buy one, get one on the game. I had a friend that had the store honor the same deal as well, with a $10 giftcard for ordering instore pick up

REP: Alright I am sorry that this is not a real promotion so what I can do is if you purchase the item in store or online I can offer you a Target Gift Card for the Free item but I can not add a $10 gift card.

REP: So that's a $60 Gift Card with a purchase as a one time courtesy.

PLEASE don't be like the Slickdeals scum and abuse this.  It was CLEARLY a mistake, just let it go.  And please, PLEASE for the love of gamers worldwide if you do decide to call/chat and they deny you don't try and push it.  They don't owe us anything for what was clearly a mistake...

I didn't buy it directly as I was in class but I sent this to my sister and she was able to get the deal after talking with a chat rep online.

 

She said he knew about the deal and that they were having difficulty with it being put into the system so they have to manually discount it. She ordered Link's Awakening and Fire Emblem first and then gave him the order number.

 

Total is $64 (with red card) as well as a $10 gift card. Some people seemed to have to try with multiple reps before getting the deal, so if you're willing, you can definitely try it.

Mistakes need to be honoured. No reason to let it go. Target loses nothing.

Yes, somebody made a mistake LETS MAKE THEM PAY FOR IT ARRRRRRRGH!  And then, lets hound the poor CS reps through chat, phone, and in-store when they try to explain it was a mistake and DEMAND they honor it...and then contact multiple reps until they do! 

 

No, no they don't need to be honored, and no they don't owe us anything.  If it was truly a mistake, which by all accounts so far it seems to have been, just let it go.  It's easy, just go "huh, sucks they made a mistake, but I'm going to decide to not make their reps lives more horrible than they already are by not being a douche and hounding them about it".  It's very easy...just let it go...

Got it with the first chat rep. Two copies of LOZ: Link's Awakening for $64.49 is one good ass deal. The rep that i spoke with is Diona if that helps. The process was quick and easy.

Was able able to get a rep that advised she was aware of this error. Adviced first that it was in store only, but she would honor the email which is great! I actually recieved an email for this so it's great when stores honor what they say(even if it was a mistake).

It’s a glitch in Target’s email system. I got the same email for something else that was a buy one, get one (of another lesser value item) free.
