Trying to get another order, but no luck so far. The reps I've talked to all seem to know what's going on now. If anyone wants to try in-store, here's a pic of one of my reps telling me that the b1g1 is an in-store promotion:

I'd try it myself, but there's no targets around here. :(

Anyone notice their invoice online? The promotional gift card is actually being charged to us

I think that’s standard, it’s so you can’t return the other stuff and just keep the giftcard.

Just tried this, lost 2 hours of time plus dozens of day time minutes over 5 phone calls.


Well there's your problem. This transaction is supposed to be conducted through an online chatbox. Next time try to read the instructions more carefully.

I don't believe I received any email that stated the B1G1 free. Sounds like Target has caught on already so I won't even bother.

I think this well has dried up. I tried a few more times tonight but the reps have been denying me. I thought I might sneak one more through but the rep said I needed to buy links awakening digital to be part of the erroneous promo.

Target is going to take a bath on this one. I don't blame people for placing multiple orders, this type of glitch/deal will probably never be duplicated. Getting AAA Nintendo titles for $30 is probably going to be better than any black Friday deal.

True. Suprise they cant just view and notice that the same person ordered.
Sad to see deals ending with no toys r us, sears, etc. Even target been thin pickings.

The best part is a B1G1 in store only deal specifically focused on Zelda somehow turning into fully online interactions to obtain two non-Zelda games, digital games, unreleased pre-order games, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if people around here somehow ended up with Xbox games and Genesis minis out of this. Absolutely hilarious.

Imagine being the guy who came up with the idea of how to offload these extra Zelda pins.

Thanks for the idea, it actually worked.

The rep told me to place two separate orders so they don’t go over a certain limit in refunds

I can't believe this still works! Transcript below:

Bruss: Hi! My name is Bruss. How can I help you today?
Me: Hello, I received an email saying that I could get a B1G1 free promotion on Switch games. However, when I try to checkout, I'm not seeing any way to enable the offer.
Bruss: Let me check the cart details and help you however I can.
Bruss: Can you provide me with your cart number?
Me: ##########
Bruss: Thank you.
Bruss: The Buy 1 Get 1 promotion is eligible only for in-store purchases. Additionly, the promotion is limited to the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, which is currently sold out.
Me: Would I be able to substitute with other items?
Bruss: Let me check with my supervisor. One moment please.
Me: Sure thing.
Bruss: Thank you for your patience. I have confirmed that substitutions will indeed be fine.
Me: Perfect. I've added the items to my cart and checked out.
Bruss: One moment please.
Bruss: I see that you've purchased a Barbeque and Graco baby stroller.
Me: Correct.
Bruss: Perfect. I have applied a 50% refund. The new order total is $227.40. You should see a $227.40 credit on your credit card within 7-14 business days.
Me: What about my free Zelda pins?
Bruss: You can pick them up in store, along with your $10 gift card.
Me: Thank you.
Bruss: My pleasure. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
Me: Yes. I'm not really into video games. Are there any you can recommend?
Bruss: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch seems popular.
Me: Great, I'll have to check it out sometime. Thanks again.
Bruss: You're most welcome.
Bruss: Thanks for visiting Target.com and particating in the Zelda deal. I hope you'll visit us again soon!
Me: If there are any more Nintendo deals coming up, I most certainly will. I could use some new bedroom furniture.
Bruss: <Bruss has left the conversation>

I wonder if I could exchange my second copy of Link's Awakening for Astral Chain. They wouldn't let me make the order without LA in the cart.

You will be able to exchange the game in store after pick up.

 

Was able to exchange FE for DQ Builders 2 after pick up yesterday.

This deal was/is fantastic. I was able to do three orders with two separate reps. First order Link's Awakening and Kirby Star Allies. Second Link's Awakening and Daemon X Machina. Last order was Link's Awakening and Luigi's Mansion. I received my $10 gift, and I was able to sell off one copy of Link's Awakening for $50. I just need to sell off the other two copies, and I'm all set. I would keep one, but I have the European Collector's Edition coming soon.
