As the title states, game is currently $49.99 and finally available for ordering. Add it to your cart plus 2 other $49.99 games, make sure the other 2 are shipped. Either keep them all for around $35 each, or cancel the other 2 games and end up with RE3 on day 1 for $35.

How do you know they won't upcharge you for cancelling the other two games?

Not the way Target’s system works, it splits the discount among each title. This has been utilized for any B2G1 deal they’ve run in the last few years. What’s unique about this is that RE3 is still discounted to $49.99, plus the B2G1 discount. That may change shortly, so order fast.

I pre ordered 3 copies RE3 last b2g1 and cancelled two. It originally showed the prorated amount but upon shipping it changed me full price. Not sure why but that was my experience when they ran the last b2g1 and when it shipped yesterday

Thanks for the heads up. Since, LoU2 is delayed I need some sort of horror.

That's strange. I got Kakarot when it was $49.99 with the b2g1 cancelled the other two and was only charged $34. Same thing with Persona on Sunday. Did you check your credit card? Sometimes the website doesn't update but eventually I was charged the correct amount.

Was that in the Target App that it reflected the change? The app has always updated faster than any emails, so might be worth double checking the order info directly.

Yes in the app. And I just checked my card statement online and it shows two different charges, the original charge I was quoted then an additional charge taking it up to $49.99

Not sure if it's because the price of the game was reduced to $49.99 after I ordered and they price adjusted it which actually increased the price. I'm just going to return it.

Do you cancel the other two right away or pick up the game first?

Idk how some of y’all are getting stuff for $35 last few times I did this with a $50 game I got it for 40 or 44 not 30 something

You can cancel right away. I've done pickup and shipping and both times it worked.

 

RE3 is $35 because it is on sale for $49.99. Did you have two $59.99 games along with the $49.99 game when you did it?

The cheapest game will always be free so even if you cancelled the other two it would come out to $43 after dividing it up.

 

Speaking of Persona, did anybody receive theirs yet? When i pre-ordered it was the Steelbook edition, but now it just shows the regular edition. I still haven't received the game so just wondering what they actually sent.

I had 3x $50 games And cancelled two before. Supposed to be around 33 but was charged $40 or something. Most of the time what they charged me is accurate tho. I guess sometimes they charge taxes for more than one copy even when the game has already shipped or delivered.

Also try to order stuff for shipping as regular shoppers who don’t know cag might want to get on this deal in stores

FYI- target isn't taking returns for the next few weeks so if you're going to try this make sure to do it through a cancelation and don't expect to return/prorate in store

Yup, deal looks to be dead. Glad I pulled the trigger ASAP this morning. I'll just sell the 2 extra copies locally. The total was about $103 after my red card.

This is a fantastic idea.  Thanks OP.

 

I'm actually thinking I might keep the games though.  RE3, Doom Eternal are obvious.  Not sure about a third though.  suggestions?

+1 on this as it has been a far more satisfying game than Sekiro was, and I didn't even care for Nioh when it first came out.

You buy 3 games of equal price and cancel 2 as soon as you place the order to maximize discount.

Received Persona yesterday - it was the steelbook.  I ordered it during a previous Target B2G1,

The $35 deal is dead, but you should still be able to get RE3 for $44 or so.

They didn’t have any RE3 on shelves when I came in but they had some in the back. So don’t be discouraged guys. Found persona 5 steelbook, doom and resident evil 3 and price matched two games for $50 but doom is $60 everywhere. So total was 110 divided by 3 = 36 plus with redcard. Good luck guys

Check your emails if you pre-ordered this with Target. I didn't realize they gave the original alternate costumes DLC from Target too!

I just gone mine this morning after picking the games up!

Maybe someone here can answer this question. Target sent me a game content code for pre-ordering RE3 but I have no idea what it is. I never saw anything about it on the page, and the email doesn't tell me what it is. Is it the same content that Best Buy was offering, which was a costume pack?
