As a reminder, the cancel trick will still be in full swing if you only need one or two games. I’m hoping Animal Crossing sneaks in there since it has never been $40 that I know of. Might grab Godfall pending reviews.

I assume the cancel trick is simply to buy 3 games and return one unopened? I might use that to get three games on launch day and return one, as one of the games I want comes out Friday and I don’t want to wait an extra day to get the games for my console.

the cancel trick is to order 3 games and cancel tthe 2 you dont want. if you order 3 $60 games, target will make each game $40.

How do you cancel the other 2, online or in store? Can I get three of the same game?

Hopefully we see games ads soon from all retailers so I can decide if I wanna go the b2g1 route $46 each game (ps5) or if the games I want will be $30 each on black friday

The safe bet is to go with Target now if next gen is included. I don’t see any stores discounting next gen games on Black Friday with the usual exceptions of CoD and AC.

Ehh I'd give it an honest try Saturday night as soon as it goes live. They always list exceptions but some games always slip through the cracks, esp on day one of the sale and Target doesn't really tend to cancel those orders that get by

Eager to get some board games with this, been looking forward to it. Normally I would wait to see BF 4k deals, but I don't know this year.

can you really return?  you'd think the system would be smart enough to void

Scratch that, I found the exclusions. It’s a couple of pages after the ones that were attached to this thread. Full ad: https://www.weeklyad...-ad-nov-8-2020/

Personally, I’m gonna try to get Demon’s Souls and Spider-Man with this. First in store, and then online if that fails. Fingers crossed.

B2G1 Free you can pick up New PS5 or XBOX game for $60 each.  You able to exchange (Swap out) different title as long as the same price (MSRP).  Extra work to visit the store after promotion is OVER or waits for New PS5 or XBOX1 game hit the store late Nov or Dec and do the exchange (Swap).  2nd option Return the game you don't want it :)

For games like Watch Dogs Legion that offer free next gen upgrades but is also selling physical versions for both current and next gen, is there any reason to buy the next gen version which usually sells for $10 more?

I’m not sure if there’s some hidden reason for this, or if it just costs $10 extra if you want the PS5 or XSX logo on the game case.

Yeah, the only two differences are that the ps4 version gives you both the ps4 and ps5 versions (while the ps5 only gives the ps5 version) and the next gen logo on the artwork is different. While I'd like to start getting some PS5 cases on my shelf, I won't be paying a premium for it.

you don't need to return. you can just place your order then cancel the games you don't want. it's just how target has their system set up for sales.

Just to make sure I'm following you, are you saying we can place an order of three games for store pickup and then immediately cancel two of them, and ultimately go and pick up one game at the discounted price? I want to make sure that's safe if I go that route, I could see Target.com not letting me cancel because the order is being processed or is ready for pickup.

i have never done it with store pickup. I would do 2 items shipped and the one you want for pickup

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the tip. I'm going to try to play dumb and try to get Call of Duty along with Spiderman and Demon's Souls. If that fails though, I'll order Call of Duty for pickup and a couple of $70 games for shipping. In that event, hopefully the games that I choose for shipping don't process quickly and I'll be able to cancel them.

Nothing for me to get with this launch lineup. I already paid off Demon's Souls. Likely getting CoD to play with friends but yeah not wasting my money on most of this launch lineup, though I will eventually play Miles Morales Spider-Man.

Two Switch games are clearly listed in the Ad, and there’s no terms in the ad excluding any Switch games at all...

sony first party exclusions are a bummer...hopefully early web orders let them through.

demons, miles, and cod would be my choice.

without demons/miles, i will either cancel trick cod or probably pass
