Thread Details

So, I was trying to get the Buy 2 and get 1 free Video game offer from Target and ended up with a discount on 2 games.

I purchased 3 XBox one games (Forza, $60, Transformers, $50, Lego Movie, $35).
The $35 game became free.
Total = $116 (60+50+35 -35 +tax)

After some time (10 mins) I changed my mind and went to my Target account to cancel one game.
The website allowed me to choose one or more games to cancel.
I choose the $50 game and cancelled.
I expected total to be $60+$35+tax= about $100

However, I see-
$60 + $35 - $22.55 (Buy 2 get the 3rd FREE video games) + tax = $76

Maybe YMMV. The value of the discount was 40% of game I cancelled.

Worth a shot if you don't really care to buy 3 games

Thanks..

That's standard. The return value is reduced for the game you return. My receipt shows a $40 return per game

Agree, this is pretty standard for partial-returns. But normally you have to actually do a return, not a partial cancellation... Nice work of the system!

My stores electronics guy says the receipt will say 60 X 3 then minus 60...so who knows...I've seen elsewhere that they're all just prorated but meh.
Still haven't decided if I want to go the online route or instore for this promo, or to just...not and wait until all the games msrp's plummet by next year, then there's all the upcoming BF stuff and having GCU at bestbuy, etc. we already have a bit of a ps4 backlog...Decisions decisions

Did this with Lego Dimensions yesterday. Bought 2 @ $99 with the 3rd free. Returned 2 at $66.66 each. So net is I got the Dimensions game at a third off plus Red card discount. Pretty much in line with the best BF deal on it I've seen so far (TRU @ $65).

This is all normal and a current special they are running. BOGO first two, third free for video games and movies. The cheapest is discounted or they're all added up, averaged, and that's taken off the top. Standard procedure for any/almost all deals they provide where you get the third item free after the purchase. Nothing to see here unless you were unaware of Target's promo to begin with. Move along.
