Thread Details

It's in this week's ad:
Save $20 on any video game $29.99 or higher when you trade in any 2 video games.

Only at stores with Target Mobile. Hours vary by location. Visit www. for store hours and locations. Guest will be given a $20 coupon good towards the purchase of any video game priced $29.99 or higher. Coupon must be redeemed for game at time of trade-in transaction, as coupon is only valid on the day. Discs must not be cracked or heavily scratched. Original artwork, case and manual required to receive coupon.

I've got plenty of old games I'd be happy to part with!

Good GameStop games to flip:
The Golden Compass PS3 $2.99
The Golden Compass Xbox 360 $1.99
NBA 2k6 $1.99
NHL 2k6 $0.99
Too Human $4.99
Be aware that Target in Gainesville, FL is very strict about no scratches on Xbox games. This store said no limit on trades, but no more than one copy of the same game.
Amplitude PS2 $0.99 (no PS2 cases at GS)
Frequency PS2 $0.99 (no PS2 cases at GS)

Is there a minimum worth for the trade-in games?
No. The ad states "any two games." If the rep tells you otherwise, he/she are not properly trained. Ask to speak to a manager.
Can you do this multiple times to get multiple coupons?
YMMV. It mostly depends the particular store and rep.
Do note that your driver's license number will be recorded, so that may mean that the official policy is one coupon per customer.
Can I use multiple coupons on one game?
My game isn't in the system. Can it still be traded in?
Yes. The official policy viewed at the mobile kiosk confirms this.
If the rep types in "promo game" after choosing the game system, the game(s) can be traded in using that option.
Can a price match and a coupon be combined?
Possibly, if the pre-coupon matched price is still $29.99 or over.
Can a PC or Mac game be traded in?
Also YMMV, but most likely not. Since there is no category for PC or Mac games, there is no way to process the trade-in.

^ To check if your game is in the database (Thnx dakosquash)

Type in "promo game" to see the blank console game selection if you can't find the game in search. -- mstrmnd

Note: Offer not valid in the city of Chicago but suburbs will accept trade ins. -- macallik86

These are the generics that pull up:
PlayStation (one)
PlayStation 2
PlayStation 3
PlayStation Vita
Sony PSP
Nintendo 3DS
Nintendo DS
Xbox 360

Not sure if your nearest Target has a Mobile Trade-In department?Try their locator:
NOTE: Many people seem to have problems with accurate results, try the directions below if this is you.
(Sub-note: Search results for Upstate NY seem to be working just fine for me--using Chrome.)

Store Locator:
1) Look up the number of your local Target (
2) Call them up, hit 4 (electronics department), and ask "Do you guys have a Mobile Target at this location?" Yes = success. What are you talking about? = time to call up the next closest Target

Too bad, it was the only reason why I walked into target and best but for months, I really hate these stupid stores.

several comments regarding bb and trade in - this is one case where it is best to call ahead and ask for limits/rules/policies i.e. if can do multiple copies

some states have bb thumb printing are other things since they have ruled that buying pre-own/used games makes bb a form of a pawn shop

before buying multiple copies that you want to flip, check first to save a headache

Quote from TexasFalcon View Post :
Yesterday and Today I have used this trade in many times.

Yesterday when trying it out for the first time, I went to the first mobile target and with no questions asked, I traded in 4 games. Then I went to a second target and traded in 6.

Today, I went to a third, fourth, and fifth store and traded in 6 at each of them. And 4 more at the first store again.

I traded in a total of 34 games consisting of Xbox, Xbox360, PS, PS2 and PS3. No games of mine were denied, though many were not in the system.

At only the fifth store, I was told that the associate had a sales conference call that limited the trade in to two games, but I insisted that he see the target flyer and offered to call the main office for him. He finally called his regional manager and was told that the only limit was the coupon was only good until midnight and the new game's price must be $29.99 or more.

I looked at all the coupons that I received and all the bar codes were the same, and the coupon did not have to be used at the store where I traded in the game.

I traded in for the following:

5x Uncharted 3 (PS3)
3x Modnation Racers (Vita)
3x Black Eyed Peas The Experience (Xbox Kinect)
3x Sonic Generations (Xbox 360)
2x Assassins Creed Revealations (Xbox 360)
with a total cost of $160

and traded 12 of them back to BestBuy (3 different stores) for a total of $297 ($177 profit) which I plan on turning into amazon or itunes giftcards.

The last 4 (2x Assassins Creed and 2xUncharted 3) I traded back to Amazon for $71.80.

So a total trade in value of $368.80 and a profit of $208.80 which I will probably spend on amazon and my games cabinent is finally free of games that I never played.
god, get a life

Went back to my Target, it's always the same b1@# girl at the Mobile. She is a liar, plain and simple.

I only went twice this week. First time I mentioned the promo game option and she said no, they got an email saying that is incorrect. Then, I went back today after you all said it was showing up on the screen - sure enough, clearly at top of screen it says to enter promo game. I point it out to her and she says "oh, that is a mistake, they are going to remove that but haven't done it yet", I say that doesn't make sense and it wasn't there a couple days ago. She keeps making more excuses. She then says that even if she selects the promo game, it won't work at the end - I ask if she can try that again for me in case it works this time, she says no.

I ask to call the DM and she says she doesn't know his # and I have to call the customer service # and he calls her back on the phone - liar. I keep mentioning it clearly says it on the promo, says she's not going to get fired for trying it for me, etc. etc.

Why do the bad employees have to sit there and lie and make up excuses all the time? Just straight up say you aren't following the promo and you don't care what I say.

Thanks for letting me vent - what is wrong with people?
why should she get fired for you?? just go to a different target....i mean what if u were in a predicament where you werent comfortable just given things pretty sure u wouldnt want some person heckling you...hey just go rob a bank, its it...its fine...come onnn, can u try it?? lol i know my analogy is probably off but just leave her be, she seems genuinely concerned about following the rules to the T, even with the promo disclaimer.

thru june 2

gotta give props to a couple guys in knoxville targets. only got two at first location due to incredibly slow computer. went across 640 to another which worked a lot faster but only got three since they were out of several BB money makers or ones i wanted to keep. no hassle whatsoever, and both said they would do as many as i wanted.
Quote from hightop32 View Post :
wrong, fyi extra 50% is still live at BB
The guy at BB said that today was the last day for 50% extra. Not sure, but FYI to those who like to wait to the last minute, tonight might be the night vs. June 2.
