There is no magic UPC code. The following all rang up as $19.99 for me tonight:
Target employees are being very nice today (and tomorrow) despite cranky shoppers, so don't get up in their face ... they probably make less than you, and this is the one time of year when they have power over you.
You shouldn't have a problem to get the price adjusted as long as you can find GC's remaining in the store ... AND ... you take them back to the Electronics dept, rather than pester the checkers up-front.
Almost all stores, including Target, don't charge sales tax on GC's, so Walmart not charging sales tax wasn't a mistake. However, sales like this are especially great because Microsoft won't charge sales tax either if using strictly points (rather than currency). Even when buying Games on Demand (such as during the Black Friday sales week), hit the blue-X to convert the amount to points, and you'll avoid paying sales tax, so long as you don't have to buy more points during the transaction.
It's better to go when the crowds are low. Try late at night when there's no kids clamoring to try out the Wii-U.
Nearly no store (except maybe Walmart) are price-matching (especially Best Buy), so if your local Target has run out, you'll need to find another one ... and another one ...

Be careful - only certain UPCs will ring up as $10. The cards look EXACTLY the same...make sure to price scan each one prior to checking out. I had an issue at the register as only one rang up as $10, the rest at full price. Luckily the fourth associate called over had the old ad with the points pictured and honored the price for all 6 cards we bought. Was at the store around 3-4am EST
