You don’t use the coupon towards gift cards obviously. You buy the discounted gift cards, then use the coupon on stuff and pay using those discounted Target gift cards. That way you stack the discounts.


See that's why I suck at 4D chess. Never contemplated that angle.

Target is a few steps ahead of the folks here.

Ahhh...thanks for clearing that up.  I don't shop at Target often so wasn't aware of gift cards themselves being discounted. Now I've seen the light, thanks!

Oh, so they're pulling the Kohl's move of horsefuckery eh? That's quite unexpected of them.

 

Too bad.

I dunno. I sort of expected it not to count.

Yeah. So? That has nothing to do with the 10% off Target gift cards offer this weekend.

This weekend buy target gift cards at 10% off. These gift cards won’t activate until Monday.

Monday, go and buy whatever you want that you can apply the 10% off coupon towards. The fine print just says that won’t apply to buying additional gift cards in that purchase.

Pay for your stuff using the discounted gift cards you bought on the weekend.

Being doing it for years and usually there was a 20% off coupon to use from buying stuff Black Friday, not the crappy 10% off this year.

Man shipping is such a shit show this year because of the volume. USPS, ups, FedEx are just not even scanning stuff except for upon delivery.

If whoever you ordered from uses UPS Mail Innovations, god help you. I have two packages that have just been rotting at the post office now for days. I guess when the PO gets those parcels from UPS, they're put in the lowest priority and sit and sit and sit. Usually, I don't have an issue with UPS/FedEx sending stuff to the PO, but I guess because of the season things are real backed up.

well my target BF order is now delayed until the 18th. Wonder what the odds are that it ships this year. Sounds like I need to buy it from best buy lol

I'm so happy Amazon has their own delivery fleet now. My special, limited and collector's edition orders are never crushed or dented anymore.

No, just the regular cardboard boxed collectibles shipped in bubble wrap bags.

Speaking of delays, what are the chances that packages that are stuck without updates for almost a month are lost at this point? I called up the PO several times and no one could really help me and just claimed it would still get to me eventually. Seems like a stretch.

All my stuff shipped USPS is weeks late. Today I got a package that was exactly 38 days late. It was ripped open and beat to crap. And no one at USPS cares if you complain. The company mailed me out a new item thats arriving via UPS now.

Yep. That’s why USPS is so slow right now. Because of Chief Cheeto.

I can't tell if you're joking, but he literally backed a guy that said he was going to slow the mail down on purpose.

I added Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity to my Best Buy cart it shows $10 off. Not the best deal, but considering that this game just came out, it's nice to find it less than full retail price.

For anyone who did the target price match last week: how long did it take to get your refund?

That's the problem, all of their services are running late right and in some cases there's packages that are stuck and not moving at all. They won't help you at all with it if you call or complain. Another problem is what you mentioned, the packages for some reason are all arriving looking like complete shit. They're opened, ripped, dirty, etc. and the items are smashed and damaged.

Unless you were in a coma since early June I'm not sure how you missed the fact that him and his cronies were deliberately trying to sabotage the postal service before the election to the point that the courts got involved and told them to knock it off.

AKA, the Walmart standard price.  It is a good price, but not a deal per se, but it is a better price for a good game.  Amazon has been fluctuating around the same price all week.

Silly question, most likely.
If I buy Target gift cards today, could I buy other store cards (later) and pay for them with the Target gift cards?

I assume that’s fine? I don’t go to Target a whole lot; 35 miles away from where I live.

Really hoping we see one last Target B2G1 video game sale before the end of the year ... would be great to get Fenyx Rising and a few other titles at $35ish instead of $49 or more.

And I get attacked for conveying reality.  :shame:  The USPS has less workers, lack of sorting, no overtime in many cases, and that isn't even the dismantling of sorting machines that cost millions per machine. The damage doesn't undo itself especially when you go into holiday season with a massive increase of shipped items.

Well, can do you one better since Target has a $50 GC when you buy two Ubisoft games starting tomorrow. I fully plan to see if I can't get a PM at the self-checkout register on two games, then claim my $50 GC hassle free since they typically do whenever there's a deal like this.

 

It will be the 3rd time buying Just Dance 2021 for the wife now. IDK why I buy gaming gifts on BF because this always happens lol.

Umm..why do you have to go through that. Just Dance 2021 is 24.99 today. Just PM today. I did that with Best Buy. Tomorrow it goes back to 49.99 for that buy 2, get a $50 gift card to end up in the same spot...

Because it's buy two Ubisoft games for the deal, and Valhalla was the other at $50. Instead of paying $25 for Just Dance, it will be FREE this way. Could argue to use it on a game that hasn't gone on sale to maximize the return, but at the end of the day if you don't need something; that's a bigger loss.

How do you PM at the self checkout? Wouldn’t it be easier to PM online using chat and assume the giftcard will be auto added to the order with two games in it?

You press the “questions” button and whoever is manning the lane will come over to help. I find it far easier to ask for a PM there since they can process it before you pay and thus no questions asked. When you total yourself out it will spring up the gift card prompt and you can scan any gift card they have available nearby. Less to explain and super easy to get the deal done.
