definitely getting ghost recon, catherine and madden for $30 each, might buy that xbox one s for $200, $40 gift card makes it basically $160 and it comes with the deluxe edition of jedi fallen order.

Yeah, that's the best deal in the ad so far. Makes the actual console sub-$100 which is incredible and beats the deal I got on it two years back.

 

RE2 finally hitting my buy price is nice too, and will probably pick up Ghost Recon as well (although I have a feeling it will be even cheaper after BF somewhere).

Lackluster deals for the switch family.

Considering the fact that Black Friday is less than a month before Christmas this year, I was expecting better deals. The Switch is 3 years old now, Nintendo couldn't have thrown us a bone by dropping the price a little, or offering a one day New 2DS XL deal for $100 in a limited edition color with a game? Even that crappy digital only Xbox One is $150 at some stores.

I was both shocked they're not dropping the price and at the same time, not. Nintendo continues their arrogant march towards irrelevance, while X1 and PS4 both have incredible offerings at $100 less and with better games. Switch lite is not a correct way to compete with those; that's like throwing 3DS at PS4/X1 and expecting it to dominate. Dumb.

Will they show all the games on sale?

 

Instead of 5-10 of them.

I wonder if Target will be doing their "20% off future use" coupon like they have done the past few years?

 

It's Friday only and you have to spend $50 in a single transaction. It does work for online transactions but the times are PST so be careful if you're waiting until 12:01 am to buy. The date the future use is between December 3 - 14. There are asterisks on the $50 and the use date. It's page 29 (or 30?) on the online ad. Wasn't there an easier way to get the 20% last year with Cartwheel? I thought I triggered it without spending $50.

Some good deals there, but I already own or did own most of them already (SMO, BOTW, KH3, RE2).

 

I may pickup CTR Switch for $15 if I go to Target on BF.

There's a reason for that - the Switch has outsold both of them for the last 10 months. They don't need to drop the price when they're selling them left and right.

Seriously. There is no way to argue they are "marching towards irrelevance" - and absolutely no reason for them to go fire-sale on pricing - when they have seen only massive success with the product.  And we're going on three years here.

 

I mean... get real.

I can't tell if this is a parody post or if you don't follow hardware sales.

I'll grab a variety of Switch games. Killer Queen Black, Crash, Crash racing. Maybe Spyro, Overwatch. I'd grab Dragon Quest Builders 2 if they hadn't excluded the Switch version.

Apples to oranges: Nintendo has found success in being the "new kid" after other consoles release so they can claim victory in the short-term. If Switch had launched head to head with PS4 and X1 it would have been a much clearer picture of who was top dog since the market share would be further split. Right now as PS4 and X1 wind down (and rightfully so since PS5 is coming in about a year), of course Switch is going to outsell them because Sony and MS already captured those sales years ago. If you're going to look at data, you have to consider factors and markets evenly; not tunnel vision.

Killer Queen and Overcooked 2 are in my sights, but I haven't actually gone out for BF in years, so not sure I'd really care to just for those two. :*(

Fingers crossed somewhere online will match those.


Buy what you want and add in whatever you need for free shipping. When you get your items just return the stuff you don’t need when you are by Target next time.

Will these be available online?

 

That's my main question.

 

Also, I'm worried they're going to be OOS pretty damn quick. :*(

I'm confused, it says the Switch Lite will be 199 but isn't it always 199? How is this a deal exactly, what am I missing?

Usually go live around 3AM EST Thanksgiving if memory serves right. Usually with a bunch of deals that aren't in the ad, but yeah things tend to sell out in under an hour or so.

I'll have to keep an eye out then I guess.

 

Thanks for the info.

If you pretend it's a deal, someone will believe it's a deal.

You're not missing anything. The ad doesn't say it's a sale. It's just available.

It is for sale, not on sale. Yay for English.

Was hoping the Switch Lite would get a game bundled with it.

Didn't notice this but they have a 50in Westinghouse 4K Smart TV for $150 (in store only). https://www.bfads.ne.../page-54#viewer

 

I can already see people lining up just for that. I wouldn't be surprised to see BestBuy having the same type of deal but for $130.

Wanna be able to get some of those $15 games but don't wanna fight the crowds or miss out on the sale?

Well, here's a YMMV way to (potentially) get them at that price:
Buy the games you want, the week before, 2 weeks before (try not to make it TOO obvious).
Return to any Target that Fri/Sat, rebuy the items with a completely different tender.

I say YMMV because you could encounter a "Target detective" at the Guest Service counter & block this by reselling the games at their original prices.


You can just buy them online.

In recent years, Target has probably been better than Walmart on pricing with Best Buy beating them both.

The last couple of years Walmart has been selling a lot of games and movies that nobody wants.  And the hot ones are $35-40 so not much of a deal really.

God I wish the PS4 Pro would get a $150 discount like the X. Even a $100 drop would be something. God Sony's stingy.

Some good deals. Looking for a good 1080p tv to replace the 1080i hisense.

 

Looks like I'll be getting a couple games at least. Too bad I no longer have GCU, I may bite on the RD2.

Pleased with the Switch game prices, disappointed with the console prices.

This post would be a great reply to your post complaining about the pricing.

Yeah, but where's the fun in that? Black Friday is all about getting into fist fights with strangers, and trampling the elderly for a $5 Blu Ray player.
