#14212460 Target Cartwheel Deals September 22nd - 28th: R.I.P. Cartwheel

Posted by mike568 on 23 September 2019 - 02:32 AM

This was a bad month for deals for me: My Best Buy GCU finally expired, and now Cartwheel is gone.

Don’t forget GameStop maybe closing sooner rather than later.

Damn. Mods on strike? This hasn't even been stickied at the top yet and it's Tuesday. This was also on the second page. Now's probably a good time to go off topic and rage about something nonsensical

Unfortunately Cheapassgamer gets federal money and the mods are on furlough because the government shutdown. Jk

So if my GCU expires next month.. can you still pre-order something now for something in april and still keep the discount on it?
Been looking for the past few weeks and theres really nothing coming out till april i want.

yes must purchase online for either shipping or in store pickup. Make sure your credit card won’t get compromised since any edit to your payment method will result in the price jumping. You can pay with PayPal and pay Best Buy now or buy a Best Buy gift card.

Right, because the clearance price of a CE which varies by store depending on stock levels and the downstocking abilities of a few stores is totally under Best Buy's control.

You might be right about Hellblade though. It could very well be the first thing that didn't go on sale at BB due to Game Pass. ;)

Can you please post next weeks ad?

#14113317 Target Cartwheel Deals December 30th - January 5th

Posted by mike568 on 02 January 2019 - 10:07 AM

Unfortunately the movies all seem to be full retail price with a select few a bit cheaper as far as newer releases are concerned.

Fortunately Target uses the same barcode for cartwheel, Target Red, and Target Wallet. Yesterday I got Mission Impossible Fallout on 4K for $16.99 plus tax. I price matched at the front registers versus guest services and electronics.

Is anyone else not getting $1 off for doing in store pickup? I know you select shipping in cart then in checkout it offers $1 off for in store pickup.

Is this a 25% off coupon that is floating around? There are 2 games I'm interested in getting but don't have GCU.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom - Switch
Subnautica - Xbox One

Best Buy sent SELECT people whose GCU was about to expire (less than 5 days left) a coupon code for 25% off a single game excluding RR2.

#14079209 Best Buy Mystery Certificate (Check Email)

Posted by mike568 on 10 November 2018 - 11:01 AM

I ended getting 2 $10 eShop cards using my 2 $5 mystery rewards certificates. I am assuming you can use them on Xbox or PlayStation $10 gift cards since they should be coded in the same category. I doubt you can use you can use it food or gas gift cards since they can’t buy them with a Best Buy gift card anymore. There is a $5 eShop e-gift card online and I didn’t want to push my luck and give them the SKU.

Hitman 2 takes awhile to install/download even on a 200 MBS internet connection hardwired. I am glad I have a 8 TB external hdd on my PS4 Slim and a 4 TB on my PS4 Pro. I got my PS4 Slim first so I overbought on HDD space.

#14078037 Best Buy Black Friday Ad

Posted by mike568 on 08 November 2018 - 08:16 PM

Amazon runs semi-frequent deals with the remote and the hub for about 70. The remote you get is whatever they have extras of at the time. Just a heads up in case you were willing to hold out. I like the hub because I can then use my phone AND Alexa to control my TV which is great when I cannot find the remote, which is always.

I have same setup at home it helps not having to point at each device and it controls my Roku 3 and makes it easier for my dad to watch tv and it switches to right input. You can even turn on your devices remotely via the Harmony app.

#14075005 Best Buy Ad 11/4-11/10

Posted by mike568 on 03 November 2018 - 01:27 PM

My first ad without GCU. Cue sad trombone

First ad without GCU. I preordered Hitman 2 Gold Edition online before GCU expires and I used my 25% off one game promo code to bring down to $59.99 and another $1 off for in store pickup. My Best Buy is sold out of preorders of Hitman 2 Gold for PS4 so they better get enough copies in for preorders. I paid using Best Buy gift cards from trade ins so I can’t change pickup locations or to shipping. I guess they do that because of different stores could have different sales tax.

Probably answered a million times but if I pre order a game at Best Buy that comes out after my GCU expires, will I still get the GCU discount when it comes out?

Order online either with a Best Buy gift card or pray that your credit card that doesn’t expire, get physically broken, or stolen. I am going with the Best Buy gift card route.

#14068721 ►Best Buy: Get $10 in Rewards or eGift Card (w/Pre-Order)

Posted by mike568 on 21 October 2018 - 01:10 PM

Thank you!! And no even if GCU expire you can still get the discounted games. I believe someone reported a while back that if you pay for games as a preorder full price online using GCU, then they are fixed at that price when they ship or pickup

This coupon is in store only and your GCU has to be active when you pickup a in store preorder since you only but down a deposit and not paid for like online.
