I've never known Best Buy to match prices on a B2G1 sale.  And now with physical media the way it is, it would seem even less likely so.

Has anyone tried price matching anything at Target.com lately? Every time I have done it, I show the link to the Target item I want to PM and then show the link to the lower priced item. Well, I just tried and the person told me they no longer can click on links and I have to tell her the item I want to price match and add it to my cart and then give her the cart number. Is this the new normal? Was it only because I tried PM at 1:20 am PST? I didn't even know they PM that late.

 

**EDIT** I tried again. This time, the links worked. I was denied the price match though. Asked if I am using any coupons and I stated I wasn't. After I placed the order, he says I see you used a promotion that made the price lower than the price match so I am not eligible. I told him yes I did use a promotion and you never told me that I can't use a promotion with a price match. He says coupons, discounts, promotions are all the same thing. I called up and they told me the same thing. Oh well. I didn't get the price match.

Too bad the switch version of Persona 5 Strikers doesn't work, I would have gotten one PS4 copy, 1 Switch copy, and something else.

No, I'll just wait until they go on sale. I'm in no rush for the PS4 copy but the switch copy would have been for my wife.

Your supposed to go to a brick and mortal location and do the Price match, not online Sherlock! Now what I did was, don't even mention that you want to want to PM on top of the promotion. Just tell them you want to buy and price match some games. It helps if you have some misc clothing, household items to buy.
also.

I was able to grab FF 7 remake and 2 copies of Red Dead 2 after this promo. It came to about 19 each after my red card. PM'd both to Wal-Mart's website

Huh? I never told him about the promotion. He asked before I placed the order if I was using a coupon which I told him I was not. To me, a promotion and coupon are different things. After I placed my order, I gave him my order number and he tells me I used a 20% storewide promotion and so I don't qualify for the PM. I was not PM a game. It was a TV. I called and the customer rep told me the same thing. I DID not qualify for the price match AND 20% store wide promotion which she said is the exact same thing as a coupon. She even read the terms and conditions off the website to me. Sure, I could have gotten someone that didn't know Targets rules but I didn't. I had no idea I couldn't use a 20% promotion and a PM in the same order. I have also read many times here over the years to never try PM in store and always use online. It's not like the guy told me if I am using a promotion, I could not get the PM and I could keep trying and trying until I got someone that would. I already placed the order.

Buy two other games of the same price. After completing the order, cancel two of the games right away and get your desired game for 33% off.


What's the best way to go about it if there's 2 games that I want to order? For instance I'd love to score No More Heroes 3 and Silver Case Switch (both $59.99) but not a third. Should I just add a third $59.99 game and then after the order is placed cancel that third game?

Yes that is correct.

Or you can return in store.

From people’s experience what are the chances of them adding games that released today to the sale? Looking like It Takes Two

This is annoying....

 

Amazon is also doing a B2G1. Amazon and Target both have the Switch Plants vs. Zombies available, but it's $29.99 on Amazon and $39.99 on Target.

 

Naturally, even though both sites offer the same promotion, Target won't price match the game as they "don't match promotions" ...

Was hoping Hades NSW would qualify but it doesn't, meanwhile higher priced switch pre-orders do :bomb:


FYI great game. If you want it discounted a bit buy it at Walmart. It’s 29.99 there. In fact all switch games are usually $5-$10 cheaper their than anywhere else. That includes 1st party Nintendo newly released games.

I believe Hades was included in the sale earlier in the week (had it in my cart).

 

Maybe it will be added to the next sale?
