In Topic: Target Buy one get two free

Is there a way to tell in brickseek if this works on the special offer? I see some of them say (100% off) when i click on the blue info button next to the price. Is that 100% off indicative of the promo?

 

Other games  have other discounts, like 33% off or 50% off - and a few of the games mention nothing at all. Lego The Movie game for instance shows $9.99 and 50% off. I wonder if that means there is another promo for that game which would exclude it from the B1G2 promo?

 

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 shows up for me $19.99 (100%) - and that is a game I'd definitely want.  Unfortunately there is not much else. Could I just get 3 copies of Kingdom Hearts and sell the other two? How likely would that be to work?

Did Uncharted $25 disappear?  :wall:

 

I was waiting to order that one because I needed to roll a gift card... but it seems the $25 no longer applies to Uncharted 4... unless I"m missing something here.

Can confirm PM + cartwheel on the PS TV just worked for me. Now to get Persona 4 Golden.

So what was the  final price of that PS TV? $20? $25?

 

I already have a Vita, and Persona 4 Golden... haven't played it yet. Honestly I'd rather play that on a television, if I can do so for that cheap I guess that's the way to go. Hopefully my target still has some Vita TV stock.

I know. My console won't read discs anymore, so I thought about just buying a new one, but only to see they sell for the same they did 3 years ago when I bought it. Forget that. I bet half the cost is in the dang gamepad anyway.

Yeah, I never bought a Wii-U on the principal of the thing. Based on the hardware, it should have been about $199 a long time ago - at least during the holidays (i.e the $199 holiday bundles the PS3 and 360 started haivng like 5-6 years ago). The fact that it's almost the same as XB1 and PS4 nowadays is just pure comedy.

 

I wouldn't mind grabbing one when it's cleared out though. I got my gamecube for $99 at the end of it's life and more than justified it's purchase. I'm not even sure $199 would be good enough for me to bother with Wii-U now, I'm just hoping I get lucky and score one in clearance for $100-150. The problem I'm anticipating, is it might be so low volume that when it's discontinued, a "clearance" score might be tough to find (i.e. the systems might just disappear and that's the end of it). At least unless Nintendo does some big nationwide surge like with Gamecube.

Add to that the movie/shows streaming which while not as good as Netflix, adds more value to the prime membership that GCU doesn't have. I have both memberships as I buy a lot and both pay for themselves with all the orders I do.

I do think Amazon is about 80% as good as Netflix. Unfortunately I share Netflix with someone, who is absolutely not willing to drop it for Amazon just because of some of the exclusive shows and the overall better selection. I also have Hulu, which I actually find much better than either Netflix or Amazon for me personally - because it has some different TV shows, plus newer TV shows, and also has the Criterion channel which is really good for movies. This basically makes Amazon third wheel for me in streaming, and by 3rd wheel I mean I pretty much never used it at all.
