Target has 3DS XL Bundle pack + $20 GC, price match to Best Buy @ $159.99 for net price of $139.99 after giftcard! Don't forget to use your Red Card for 5% off...
http://www.target.com/p/nintendo-...3&term=3ds xl



I went to two different Best Buy locations this morning looking for:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Ninte...8816654178
Neither had it in stock, so I went over to Target to price match.

FYI, per Target price match policy this holiday season, you only need the printout from Best Buy (Don't need the full ad). If they try to deny you the giftcard ask for manager.

Long live SD!

Shot down today morning at Target. Either GC or PM... how did you make it? Can you share your receipt?
"We’ll match the price if you buy a qualifying item at a Target store between Nov. 1 and Dec. 16 and find the identical item for less at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com, ToysRUs.com or BabiesRUs.com. Simply show us the current online price using your mobile device, or bring in a printed page showing the current online price by Dec. 16. The online price and availability will be validated by a Target team member at the Guest Service desk."

Here's a new one - I got rejected because Target doesn't price match bundles.
That's horse ____, I hope you got a manager involved. This is a single item UPC.

Sales guy said the bestbuy ad doesn't mention the bundle. so no go.
BestBuy.com price mentions the bundle... I linked it in the original post.

Huge ymmv!
Really? I passed this onto some friends and they've tried it between 8-10 different stores and none had an issue with the bestbuy.com printout...?

From Target Pm policy

What is excluded from the Holiday Price Match?

In addition, the following exclusions apply:

Competitor price matches on items where Target is offering a free gift card
My friend who works at Target (who told me about this price match deal by the way) said call their 1-800 customer service number if they don't give you the GC. Also, the GC is ONLY on the Blue XL/Mario Kart Bundle, not the regular 3DS XL.

Very YMMV. Target did the match at customer service, and I did not get the $20 GC. But still got the additional 5%, so a better deal than BestBuy.

I already posted this in the BB 3DS XL thread....

How I got a Nintendo 3DS XL with Mario Kart for $99

Background: I originally bought the 3DS XL at Best Buy for $199.99 ($210 with tax). It included a "free" $20 gift card plus I received a $20 Amex credit for using my Amex card. I was happy with a final price of $170.

Today: I visited Target and they price matched BB's $159.99 deal, plus they honored their own offer of a $20 Target gift card (without even asking). I used my Target RedCard for another 5% off. Walk out the door price with tax at Target $139 ($159 minus the gift card, which I used immediately on groceries).

I then returned the 3DS XL to Best Buy. Their system was acting up so they had to do some manual overrides, giving me a full $199.99 refund. I got to keep the $20 BB gift card from the original purchase. When I got home, I realized that I gave them a different credit card to process the refund (not the Amex), so the $20 Amex credit will remain.

Summary: $139 price from Target, minus $20 BB gift card (which I will use to buy an Amazon gift card in-store to fund my weekly Amazon purchases), minus the $20 Amex credit.

I brought a printout of the Best Buy webpage to Target and they price matched it at 159.99 AND gave me a $20 giftcard, no questions asked! I also paid with my Redcard and saved an additional 5%. Thanks! Great deal

Dont use the sales paper, you gotta printout the BB webpage showing the blue MK XL at $159 and bring that to Target

Are you telling people to all go return their $200 amex purchase on a different card?

If not, stop spamming all the different 3ds xl threads. I know you want to brag about your $99 purchase but give it a rest.

This just means they pm but they won't give you the gift card?
my target says either you get it for 159.99 or you buy it at 199.99 and get $20 gc.

Just saying, this is awesome. I regret buying the 3DS XL a month ago by itself. But I did get it matched down to $160 and I had already owned Mario Kart 7 so not a big deal to me.

However, I can see Target easily shooting this down, since they offer a gift card and Best Buy does not. Luckily Target is cool about it. Just sayin us SD'ers are lucky until tomorrow when they catch on Wink

Gainesville Florida no problems at all, customer service looked at price on bestbuy.com. The gift card was questioned because of price match , manager said gift card is fine since its our sale.



That makes 2 3ds XL Mario bundles. Thanks slickdeals I'm broke again

There are nearly 20 3DS threads started/updated in the past day. I posted in 2. Yep, spamming at it's worse! Tool.

As a Guest Service Team Lead at Target this is my experience, The price should be honored that's not an issue. The issue lies in, once you price match Bestbuy's price of $159.99 you're disregarding Targets promotion of "$199.99+ $20GC" and taking on Bestbuys of $159.99. Don't be surprised if you're refused the Giftcard once price matching to Bestbuy because that's simply just how it works. Price matching is disregarding Targets promotion and taking on anothers while showing loyalty to Target by buying it there. Not to say a little ignorant arguing won't go along way and the manager will cave and give you a giftcard.

WOWZA

i got the deal/ but it was a harrowing negotiation

the manager insisted that they dont price match bundles, and in fact showed me a paper saying they dont price match bundles!!!! in that moment i realized all was lost, but sure enough at the last second the guy changed his mind and granted me the price match WOOT / but he explained that he couldnt give me the 20$ gift card, and i was like "no problem ill take the PM"

a minute later as i was rung up there was a problem, the teller and manager spoke some more then explained to me that i would be recieving the gift card after all!!!!!!!!!
