I just called BestBuy to price match my order. Doing the same with Target.

 

EDIT: Successfully PM'ed Target for the steelbook. Calling worked, was denied via chat.

Note that you do NOT get the $10 code at amazon now, had to preorder before the 14th (matching Bestbuys $10 bonus) and you no longer get the skin for the backpack.. also had to preorder before the 14th.

Backpack skin is meh, but the $10 bonus is the real bonus.

All PMing walmart from 2+ hours earlier. Just wish they would drop the online price for the single game so amazon could PM my order.. and still keep my $10 bonus.

I placed an amz preorder on 6/8 just in case there was a price drop like this.  Has not shipped yet.  But the preorder did automatically adjust to $99.

 

I haven't heard about the $10 bonus, will this apply?  TIA

Ugh I paid full price for this on there....the pre-order guarantee better apply to this.

 

Not sure if I should order a second one and return it as the first to be safe. I'm worried since mine as already shipped

I'm assuming you don't have GCU at Best Buy since the GCU price was actually cheaper at $95.99 and they don't manually price match and add the GCU discount on top of that.

I don't.

I don't.

Pretty nice to get the steelbook at Target for $100 bucks though, after price match.

It’s removed from amazons page now.. had to search and find a cached page to get the screenshot.
It should be automatically placed in your account. Getting Target to PM is probably the best deal for someone who didn’t get the $10 bonus from bestbuy/amazon now.

So I hate dealing CS, but my representative really outdid himself. He price matched Amazon's price (even though I had the steelbook dual pack). That's $20 back to my card. Then he sent me an additional $10 gift card. Waiting 2 weeks blows but I think this is more than fair.

So I'm guessing calling Target CS is the best way rather than chat to get this price on the steelbook?

My price match was through chat.

My price match was through chat.

So just tried chat and got denied. But I told them about the shipping delay and they gave me 5% back. Better than nothing I suppose.

Can anyone give me a non-snarky response as to why you would want/need both versions (for reference, Let’s Go Frikachu was my first Pokémon game and I was able to trade for what I didn’t have, so I felt like I wasn’t missing much)? I preordered the double pack, Sword alone, and Shield alone with GCU, plus you get a $10 reward certificate for each version (but only one if you get the double pack). I don’t necessarily care about the collectors coins in the double pack so getting both separately with a $10 cert each or just getting one and buying the other on super deep discount years down the line seems like the way to go? Or am I missing something?

It's a good deal if you have kids and want two copies so you can play along.
