Thanks for the info, Sherlock Holmes

In Topic: Buy 2 Select Videogames get $50 Gift Card at Target

This deal IS shared and IS on the front page. It's stickied in fact (although it could've been made better by highlighting the main deal in the thread title). It includes talk of price matching. That should be enough to spark anyone's interest. This thread is a repost, whose purpose is to bring attention to the loophole, without explicitly stating it in the title.
 
This loophole is so Fucking simple, anyone with a brain will wonder if it's possible. I'm for loopholes, but not so much idiots who need things spelled out for them. I guess people just can't put two and two together.

 

Also, there's a difference between legitimate deals vs. obvious loopholes, and if you can't understand how abuse of a loophole could cause it to close, then maybe you need that spelled out for you as well.

People's experiences have been shared sooooo many times by now. We don't need to know everybody's got dang experience. This "deal" or similar has been around for years at Target and it's always the same story (2017, 2016, 2015, 2014). Why a dedicated thread needed to be made, when the details (and the seed planted) are in the Target Ad thread, idk... Eventually, the more vocal people get about the deal, the more it will be abused to hell and Target will adapt. Target used to have a similar "save / gift card with purchase of select game and a pre-order" deal, but I believe that one's been killed.
 
How about:

  • know that going in, the deal is against policy,
  • it can be successful, so try it for yourself if you want,
  • know to walk away when it isn't,
  • KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, and
  • remember the deal for next year (AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT THEN TOO)!

That's all you need to know.

I could not find many tweets directed toward Wombat (or the CAGcast) pertaining to the wombat cubic-shaped poops within the last month, let alone of all time. So, were tons of links DMed or is Wombat really that whiny?
 

How convenient...

EDIT: As of posting, why do all of the responses in thread have bold formatting?
