Thanks to all who gave tips. Thanks also to the OP. Finally traded in 4 games total in 2 separate transactions at the Elgin store. First tried Algonquin and failed due to insufficient employee training.

Grabbed a $100 Visa GC after doing another set of trades. $6 activation fees on those things?? I'd never buy that normally. What a racket. I figured $94 after the fee was good enough though.

I'm surprised all the people doing the gift cards honestly. Does nobody actually shop at Meijer for groceries? 




#13020756 Target 11/8 - 11/14: Buy Two Get One Free All Video Games

Posted by Nothing- on 10 November 2015 - 09:22 PM

Good luck with that one. I had the same issue on Sunday -I REALLY wanted Divinity Enhanced Edition for the PS4,but it didn't get tagged for the sale. So I called customer support.

First, you'll get a call center located in the Philippines. The employees there won't be able to help you -it's funny: Target wants you to trust customer support that they've outsourced to the Philippines, but Target themselves clearly don't trust them because they wont give them authority to actually DO anything in the system. These reps can't ultimately do anything that you can't.

So when you call in, you have to ask for a representative in the United States -please don't jump on me for being a racist or anything like that - Target made the decision not to let employees in the outsourced call centers do these things.

When you get to the American call center (trust me, you will not ever get routed there first, the 800 number on Target's website doesn't go there on it's own), you'll end up explaining the issue to a front line employee. The front line employee will ask for your cart number, located at the bottom right corner of your screen On Target.com, so they can see the products in your cart. Make sure you only have the three games and nothing else, they get confused easily, and if they THINK that something else is the problem they will latch onto that and never let go.

Once they've seen the items, and the lack of discount being applied, they'll put you on hold while they research it. Research is a generous word, all they're doing is pulling up the page for each gamegame, and seeing if they all say "Buy 2,get third free"... If you're calling for this, you already know one of the games doesn't say that. The rep will come back and tell you they've found the issue, then they'll explain that it's because ________ isn't an eligible title.

Be careful here: Refer them to the PRINT ad, point out that the PRINT ad says "All video games, all week" on the front page, and that the only * is that it only counts for games which are in stock. After you've made it clear that this is the printed ad they mailed to everyone, tell them that they can view the same ad on weeklyad.target.com -they'll put you on hold while they verify it. When they come back, the rep will agree with you that it says all games, and (assuming you have three video games in your cart) all three items you've picked are games. If you push this, they will check with a supervisor/manager.

When they come back, they will agree to "make an exception", depending on how much of a double your representative is, they might try to lord it over you like they're doing you a favor, when in fact they're only honoring their own advertising.

The first time I did this, they told me to log out for ten minutes, and then log back in to see the discount applied. Don't. Do not voluntarily end the call if the discount has not been applied -they will NOT apply the discount, you will have to call back and start all over again!

The only way it actually gets fixed is if they do the transaction over the phone, so that they can modify it on their end. Be sure your billing information is already saved on Target.com to make this easier. They will read a long statement related to the purchase and tell you the total cost without discount -I asked them to confirm the amount after discount before I agreed, better safe than sorry. The charge INITIALLY showed up as the full price, but was updated within the hour.

Hopefully this will save someone all the time I wasted -I was hung up on twice, by supervisors. One actually pretended I was using abusive language "Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to stop using that abusive language, or I will disconnect the call!" -click. No abusive language of any kind was used, he made that up because he didn't want to go through the apparent trouble to apply the discount manually. God I hope that call is monitored, I've worked in a call center and he should be fired.

That whole rigamorole took roughly three hours, between reps saying they fixed it, having issues in the system, giving me bogus transfers "because something was wrong with their system, so they needed to get me another agent" (again, not wanting to apply the discount, are they scored down by the number of manual discounts they apply?) I don't know if it was really worth three hours, if I had dealt with these people in person I might have gotten physically violent, and I'm a remarkably passive person.

It's just that easy folks!

Well it took an hour and fifteen but I got it done. Also, I was able to buy a gs gift card with the trade credit. I just also bought other things to conceal what I was doing and I didn't ask anyone for permission.

Posted by Nothing- on 05 November 2015 - 06:18 PM

On that note... and first let me preface this with the fact that I flip more than 90% of the people here... I don't need to compare numbers, I just know I do.

 

But, the one the irks me the most, is when people buy games from one retailer, then go to another store and trade them back in to the same retailer.

 

I have no problem buying 50 games from one company, trading them in to another company, and walking away with $1,000 and smirking the whole way laughing "suckers!"

 

But to negatively, intentionally, diminish the bottom line of a company that without a doubt is losing money because you are buying from them and then trading them right back for more... that one gets me. I can't live with myself if I did that one. If left to un-restricted limits that company would go backrupt from that mistake. And some people exploit it.

 

Some will argue "it's their fault!"  That may be, but there has to be some moral ethicaly dillema there right? I mean, on the scale of 1-2 games, meh.... but to do 50-100 games exploiting the shit out of it... that one's different.

 

Like I said, if some company is doing a B1G1 and another company is running a trade in bonus, well hell, perfect formula, go to town. But not when one individual company is running a B1G1 and a TIV bonus at the same time... buying from one, trading back to same one... you need to take a shower, cause you dirty.

Yeah bro.  Are there no ethics in abusing the shit out of flipping trade-in values anymore??

Did my trade-in at Meijer tonight and the values matched what Nextworth quoted me :) The associate did have to hit the promotion button first, as scanning the games and then trying to apply the promotion didn't work.

I hate people that try and commit return fraud. 

 

Cross-retailer return: Returning or exchanging an item purchased at another retailer (usually at a lower price) for cash, store credit or a similar, higher-priced item at another retailer.

#11791869 Triple Game Trade In Value @ Target 5/18-5/24

Posted by EvilChamp on 27 May 2014 - 05:32 AM

Hi everyone - 

 

Let us look back at this crazy promotion. 

 

At first, I was going to go bananas on this. But then, as I looked at the games I was going to trade in, telling myself that I would buy some of them back down the line (Dark Souls II, Bravely Default, for example), I asked myself for what? 

 

Watch Dogs came to mind, but then I thought how I would get that game three weeks later, when it will likely drop to $35-$40. Did I really want an XBOX 1 when I already had PS4? 

 

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I wasn't willing to part with some of my beloved games. Mind you, I'm one that keeps certain games - Fire Emblem, for example comes to mind - and beats then flips other games - Bioshock, Splinter Cell, for example. 

 

In the end, I got rid of three games for $90. Getting $48 for Black Flag was too good to pass up - that game will be $15 in no time and I played enough of it already. Zelda Link Between Worlds was hard to let go, but I was done with that game and didn't see myself coming back to it. 

 

I decided to part with what I didn't want anymore. What's interesting, is that the "triple bonus" might not have been as lucrative for some as it was for others.

 

My buddy had COD Ghosts and Infamous for the PS4. Target would have given him $72. Gamestop? $68. I'm not sure if that included his 10 percent bonus or not, but the difference for him was minimal. 

 

Some made out like bandits with this promo, and I'm happy for those of you that did. Some of us might regret trading in some of our beloved games - you have all this extra credit now, but you might be buying a game for $60 when you would have likely waited to get it for $20. We all have backlogs. All of us. 

 

In the end, I'm happy I didn't throw my collection for $300 credit hat I wouldn't know what to do with (in terms of buying video games).

 

I'm cool with $90 for three games I don't play anymore. 

 

Thoughts?

Actually in the whole scheme of things, it seems like everyone is a flipper in one way or another.... 

 

I mean while this country is going to the shitter because we lack productivity and creativity to generate real wealth, all this flipping is keeping the economy looking ok..  As long as money is being moved around and huge debt is created, we are looking well from a economic standpoint.  :P

Posted by JohnnySucco on 20 May 2014 - 09:15 PM

I just tried a trade in transaction using the online trade in program and it works just fine.   I don't know the exact system set-up but the error occurs while applying the agreed upon purchase value to a gift card.  I would hardly think Next Worth would have anything to do with that.  Instead they manage the game listings and values and Target would be responsible for this. This really doesn't pass the smell test and it appears this error is on purpose by Target (perhaps buyers remorse).  If it was a real computer bug it shouldn't be that difficult to work though and should have been fixed by now (a critical system flaw sure would be by now).   Having worked there, I can confidently say purposely causing the appearance of a system error is the incredibly shady type of business practice Target would do.  It's funny because people rag all day on Walmart but Target may be worse as far as how they treat their customers (guests, excuse me) and employees.  They just manage their image a little better.   Anyways a truly legitimate company would honor something like this even if they are losing money because of people abusing the system.  They could simply instruct Next Worth to tank the values of all games and they have nothing to worry about.  Instead they are hiding behind computer errors.

Guys, I have two games to trade in today but the site says limit three. Does that mean I have to find another game to trade in?
