Target: 30% off select games with a pre-order. It seems to apply to pre-orders, too. For example, if you add 2x Red Dead Redemption 2's, it takes $18 (30%) off the order.

This is way better than GCU
Wait, how? Maybe I'm overtired but GCU gets 20% off any game, plus some get an extra $10 certificate. This is basically 2 select games for at most 15% off each game...



EDIT: Yeah, if you happen to have GCU, Best Buy is still a much better option.

It comes to be 15% off each game. OP states it's 30% off the order, but it isn't, it's 30% off one pre-order. If it was 30% off the entire order you'd be getting $36 off, not $18.

Op is showing that you can add two pre-orders and get 30% off one though.

Not better than GCU, (that is, if you already have it.)

If you have to buy two games, it equals 15% off each game, where as GCU is 20%. It only becomes somewhat equal (17.5% each) if you have a red card, but even then there are sometimes bonuses for pre-order at BB.

Have to say too, if you have Prime thats also 20% off still, and even they sometimes include bonuses! Plus you're not limited to select games at Amazon/BB.

Ok. What about ONE game for GCU member? Is this dealfrom Target better than at Best Buy?

The 30% only applies to ONE game. Two RDRs total $119.98. An $18 discount is only 15%. Do the fricking math.

I avoided doing math on calculating true value of this deal since I am not skillful with numbers HOWEVER I did an "experiment" by ordering 1 game vs 2 games of:

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (SFAC)
Super Smash Bros Ultimate (SSBU)

The Target app doesn't give me 30% off on pre ordering ONE game of Super Smash Bros Ultimate, even when I check out as a Red card member.

Though the Target app DOES give me 30% off on pre ordering TWO games of SSBU. Alternatively, Target app DOES give me 30% off on pre ordering both SSBU and SFAU. But the first game gets the maximum discount. Red card discount of 5% applied.

If you have GCU, it is cheaper still buying 1. Because GCU is 20% off ANYgame, and this is 30% off a preorder if you also buy another game FULL price, which equates to be only 15% off per game at Target. If you have red card, it would bump it to 17.5% off per game, but it is still less than 20% at BB with GCU.

This proves my "experiment" from my last post.
