I'm surprised how little attention CAG is giving this thread.

 

any 2 full msrp switch games for $59.99 + tax with $10 giftcard if you pick up.

 

I have never seen switch games this cheap and reps are still honoring this

 

Order1: Link's awakening & Fire Emblem 3 houses $59.99 + tax and $10 giftcard back - already picked up

 

Order2: Super Mario Maker 2 & Astral Chain $59.99 + tax and $10 giftcard back - already picked up

 

Order 3: Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword for $59.99 total (Both pre-order)

Well got shut down both tries. First rep mentioned the pins the other said it was in store only. I don't have any luck when it comes to ymmv deals and trying to get reps to honor them.

Was sort of able to get the deal on the first try?

 

Rep tried to tell me I received the wrong email and to ignore it. Told her my friend was able to procure the deal via chat, then she offered 25% off. Asked nicely and she sort of gave me the deal?

 

Total is $74 some how. $119 for both games - $64 (discount) + $9 tax = $64. Don't know where the other $10 is from?

The reps have known for hours now. They all got a memo about the error.

Jesus. Target is insane for allowing people to abuse this mistake.

Anybody ordering more than once is pushing their luck and making sure target never honors a mistake like this again. Good job greedos.

Took about 30 mins to get the chance to chat with an online rep. I just received the deal with zero hassle! Second game is a preorder of Pokémon Sword!

That person could be like me and have multiple accounts. It's a perfectly reasonable assumption.

I called and had the order completed in 20 minutes. Got Luigi‘s mansion and links awakening. Not gonna try to abuse it so just doing it this one time.
Really wasn’t going to give them a hard time about it but they did not give me any real objections.

The day I forgot not to visit this site, I missed on a deal again. This should be dead by now right?

I tried chatting with a rep this morning. Clearly they are aware of the issue as I got an immediate response (no):

 

The email you received regarding the promotion was intended to be for the store offer shown in the weekly ad (page 6): Buy the Legend of Zelda: The Link's Awakening, and get a free Zelda pin set. The stores have the free gift at the Electronics counter while quantities last.

I talked to chat last night and they seemed on the fence about it cause I bought Astral Chain Saturday and was asking if I could return it with the receipt and then buy Zelda and they get Astral Chain as the free game. They told they couldn’t online but were aware of the promo and would need to go to a store and they would have to process as a return then resell it back to me. Took screen grabs cause they acknowledged the deal in the chat so wish me luck today after work. Was told to bring the game as well

The rep I spoke to said he couldn't find the offer, but he gave me 50 percent off my order. I'll take it.

Just got in on the deal no questions asked by chat agent Rose. Got Zelda, Astral Chain and $10 GC. So on the website it says my total is $67.98 (Tax charged on both games?), but I received an email that it's ready to be picked up and it says my total paid is $54.87.

It's just flooded with normies. Keep refreshing but there is a high chance you won't be able to get in on this at this point. I'm just hoping my pickup orders are good to go in about two hours.

 

Has anyone with a pickup order received the pins?

Does the qualifying game had to be $59.99 because they lowered link’s awakening by a dollar.

First rep shot me down instantly, but the second rep (although aware it was an error) said she would honor the deal if I did instore pickup. They ended up refunding $48.99 and honored the $10 giftcard too, on my way pickup the order now, will report back if I get the pin set.

Wouldn't it have been more simple, by an order of magnitude, to just get Zelda and Astral Chain through this promo and then just return a sealed Astral Chain with your old receipt from Saturday?

Guys, is this still active? Do I just add two games to my cart, and then call customer service and say I got the email and ask for them to honor it?

 

*Edit:  They've delisted this from the web page, I'm too late as always ;/

I ended up getting my copy and then I went to electronics to ask for the pin set, but they didn't have any more. The woman said she would have gave me one otherwise.
