Are 4k movies usually part of the buy 2 get 1 free promotion

Yes. I ordered the Lord of the Rings, Hobbit and Indiana Jones 4K sets in the last sale. Worked out to ~$62 each with tax.

I had Samurai Warriors 5 and the new Binding of Isaac for Switch preordered in the last sale and they got cancelled because "There was an issue with fulfillment" or something. 

I preordered both of those last sale too, and they are both still valid for me.  When I went in the order though I noticed that Akiba's Trip had an "Action required - Approve delay" message despite it not coming out for another 6 weeks, so I approved that "delay."

 

That's the problem with Target preorders, they will sometimes have odd messages to approve a delay, even when the item hasn't even been released yet (happens a lot with game delays).  I make it a habit of going into all my open preorders at least once a week to make sure no weird approval messages are there.

In my experience, and this is uniquely with Target, usually what happens when they say your package has arrived and you can’t find it anywhere, the initial carrier has passed it along to USPS and they deliver it the last mile within a day or two. Never happens with Amazon, but Target seems to utilize that method frequently.

Anyone have experience with Target and backorders? I had brought an Persona/Shin Megami Tensei based artbook like more than a month ago, and its been stuck on backorder since despite the original release date claiming to be in mid May. The annoying part is they keep pinging me the charge then sending me an email to confirm a new release date delay.

 

Its still in stock with a new release date in early July, so I'm wondering if I would be better off cancelling my old order (Since it was during the Buy 1 Get 1 50% book sale), and grabbing 2 more books

I had the PS5 charging dock pre-ordered when they were releasing those. They put it on back order, kept bumping the date back on it, then eventually just cancelled it. Summary of this story, YMMV.

That's happened to me multiple times. One time it was a video game preorder I made months in advance as part of buy 2, get 1 free. Video game came out, went out of stock temporarily (it was not a big-selling game, but I suspect it was in a lot of b2g1 purchases), I never got it. Instead, they kept sending me emails saying I had to accept the new expected delivery date or else they'd cancel it. And get this, the game came back in stock on the site and they were still sending me email delay notifications long after it returned!

Yeah I just got it today when it was marked delivered yesterday. Pretty annoying

Damn, Guilty Gear Strive (PS5) was part of it at $59.99, but then it sold out quickly.

 

Nioh Collection (PS5) is part of it at $69.99.

Just remember target adjusts prices in your order so you can cancel games if you don’t want 3, for example 3 $60 titles will be $40 each meaning you can cancel 2 and still pay $40 for one title or cancel 1 and pay $80 for 2 titles


It takes two PS4 is on sale for $30 meaning you can grab it with 2 other $30 games and cancel those to get it for $20~ outriders ps5 is $45 until tomorrow and is also included making it $30 a piece if you grab 3 and cancel 2.

Only game of interest I've seen as part of the b2g1 is Nier Replicant.

Isn't working for me, but wanted to clarify the memory card is supposed to be free with 12 mo purchase, not the other way around. So $35 for family plan and then free memory card (currently sold for $31). Considering the family plan was $20 during the last BF, that makes it $15 for the memory card. Good deal.

 

According to the offer details, the memory card should be automatically added to your order after you add the family plan to cart, but it doesn't. Manually adding the the memory card to cart does not make it free.

Does anyone know if Target would retroactively charge shipping on an order that dips below the free-shipping threshold after canceling items? I'm tempted to preorder Blue Fire, but doing the cancel trick to make a single copy roughly $20+tax would technically make the order no longer qualify for free shipping.

I picked up Ys 8, Mass effect and RE village. Ys 8 for 40 is a good deal as Ys always ends up getting expensive in the long run. Mass effect and RE I would have preferred to wait till Black Friday for a better deal. I’m sure they will be $20-$30 then. My significant other really wants those two though so i just bit the bullet.

Was going to get Mass Effect and Guilty Gear, but GG is sold out. I was considering getting Outriders, but by the time I get to playing it'll probably be cheaper than the 44.99 it is now so why bother.

I'm just going to wait and see if Guilty Gear gets back into stock before the end of the week.

I just picked up a used Ys 9 for $40 like 2 weeks ago... regretting that now because I could have combined that with Nier Replicant and ME Trilogy. *sigh*

That is the one I got I just realized I put 8 instead of 9. I wasn’t planing on getting it as I have it pre ordered on switch. I couldn’t find a 3rd game I wanted though. Good thing is I can always sell it later on once it’s sold out everywhere. Hopefully you find a 3rd game you want.

by the time i play these games, its gonna be like around $20. for RE8, i'll wait for the Gold Edition with all DLC for the PS5. if i can wait like RE7, im sure i can wait for RE8. and possibly get PS5 slim unless Sony comes with a nice special edition.

Yeah odds are real good RE8, Outriders, and ME Legendary will all be $20 ~ $30 by BF. Don't take my word for that or anything but this isn't our first rodeo either.

I suspect that you can add $10 to any expected bf price due to the next gen $70 msrp
