Deal Details

Target has the new Tomb Raider for PS3/Xbox for 49.99.

This week's ad [target.com] lets you take $20 off this game (and a few others) when you buy a $1 preorder game card.

Best Buy is selling the same game for $19.99.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Tomb+...&lp=1&cp=1

Price match the game with best buy and have them scan the preorder card and the game should come out to $0.99!

Hint: To make this a successful purchase, you might want to buy another item of equal value to distract the customer service clerk from the fact that you got a game for $1. Just return the item later.

If you choose to try it, here is one good way to go about it:
1. Get Tomb Raider, GTA4, and a GTA5 $1 pre-order card.
2. Give the clerk Tomb Raider
3. Show your phone with the BB price and ask for a price match. If no phone ask for price match to Best Buy or Amazon.
4. Hand the clerk GTA4
5. Hand the clerk GTA5 pre-order card (Total will be the cost of GTA 4 + $0.99 + tax)
You are NOT obligated to buy GTA5 with this, they will only hold a copy for you for a short period after it's release (if you choose to pick it up).
6. Return GTA4 later. (Final cost of of Tomb Raider is $0.99)

Works with these $1 pre-order cards: Splinter Cell, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Watch Dogs and GTA V, Don't pick Battlefield 4
Also, check the expiration date on the pre-order cards. Some are expired. It may be why some didn't work.

Can have multiple in same transaction. Pic uploaded

What Target price matches doesn't really have anything to do with what the developer gets.

It's not stealing if they do the price match...

Any order on how to have the cashier ring this up successfully, like Pre order card, game, then price match?

I got mine for $1! I was nervous it would be a waste of a trip, but they price matched BB, then I handed the girl the pre order card, and viola! Total was like $1 plus tax. I just traded mine in to get dragons crown so this works out perfect!!

Good deal for those who want to put in the effort on 2 trips. Return lines are always long.
