Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Nintendo Switch) 2 @ $40 + $50 Target Gift Card - In Store - YMMV

-9 Deal Score
2,710 Views
After seeing Best Buy put Mario + Rabbids on sale for $40 today, I decided to try price matching at Target and see if it could be combined with their current promotion of buy 2 and get a $50 Target gift card. It worked! The cashier price matched both copies of the game to $39.99, but did not scan a gift card at first. I mentioned the Target promotion and they scanned a copy to make sure the game was eligible for their promotion. A manager came over and had to apply the gift card, but no questions asked, out the door with two copies and a $50 gift card for $80. This would have to be in store before they close today, but if it anyone else can duplicate, it's a great deal!

Totally YMMV, Target doesn't allow to stack promos on top of Price Match.

No go over the phone. Target rep stated they won't price match Best Buy's price due to the "Save $20" by the actual price. Trying over chat now.

Way to exploit the price match system so they'll eventually get rid of it, you should be proud.

As much as I feel your sentiment I think that it's ignoring the real issue, which is that Target should not be allowing a $50 gift card promo to stack on top of that. If anything they need to address that, not the price matching part.

It was a manager override. The headache of removing that ability at the store level is much greater than what they lose by people gaming the system.

That reinforces my point. Perhaps they should train their people better (managers included).
