Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

If you paid with a debit or credit card, you can go to target.com and ask a chat representative to see what they can do for you.

I paid by Redcard and Groupon $10 Target gift card. I tried to chat and it opened a dialogue/messenger window saying to call if I don't get a response in 24 hours? Weird.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

So are price matches no longer allowed? I've asked 4 different chat representatives and they all said no.

Did you look under "Target.com order experience"? I just finished chatting with a representative. They're available until midnight, central standard time.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Ordered ( all $15.99) Ghibli / Disney title ( BD + DVD)

The wind rises
Castle in the sky
The secret world of Arrietty

I had purchased Target gift cards for 10% off a while back

Came to just over $10 each with free shipping. Many are not available in stores. Were on my wish list for a while.

Yeah, at first, it automatically redirected me to the app, so then I went to the full desktop version of the webpage, where the rep told me three times he couldn't do any price matching because they are on buy 2 get 1.

Then told me he was refunding one of them, which he did by discounting each item....then I got an egiftcard for one of the amounts but nothing for the other two??
Gonna check my Redcard account info to see if they refunded it that way.

Good to know you got in contact with someone. You can always try calling them if your situation doesn't clear up soon. I hope everything goes well for you.

Regular PM are allowed, but PM in addition to B2G1 have been YMMV. Some folks have bee allowed and others have been told no.

Same experience from people trying it in store just like PM + Cartwheel. I'm guessing memo's went out sometime saying it's not allowed, but either some people didn't get/read them or are just ignoring the instructions. It seems like notes are being attached to accounts because calling/contacting multiple times doesn't seem to be very helpful.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Target must run this sale as a loss leader to clear out inventory. If you are smart about it, some items end up being below wholesale pricing.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

No dice on a couple of the Target exclusives, about the only things I pay more than $5 for, so I'm probably out on this sale.

I'm curious about this. There seems to be a LOT of stuff there that would never see the inside of a Target store, including several Vinegar Syndrome, Artsploitation, Severin and Massacre Video titles, among many others. Does Target actually order that stuff and keep it at their own warehouses for online shoppers, or do they use some kind of third party for inventory that isn't necessarily destined for their stores?

Judging from my recent packages originating from Shepherdsville they seem to using the Alliance/SuperD warehouses to ship product directly pretty much like just about every major retailer other than Amazon and maybe Walmart (BN, BBY, FYE, DVDPlanet, DeepDiscount, etc). This at least applies to East Coast addresses

I suspected for the last few years that they may have used SuperD to supply product, but actually shipped from their own packaging centers which weren't in KY. I'm still not sure if there is still a bit of separation since the packaging and packing slips aren't quite the same as the normal SuperD style.

Somewhat surprising several of my BBY packages came not from Kentucky so I;m not sure if they're using multiple suppliers or if SuperD may be using some new distribution centers (maybe some of the old Anderson sites).

I'm pretty sure even Walmart has some at least sideways connection to this crew, but at least my WM packages still seem to start elsewhere

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

I got rejected a lot of times in regards to the price match, but I got through twice. The trick is, I think, it's just to mention you want to price match some items, don't mention the buy 2, get 1 free deal. Again, your milage may vary.

Just got my shipping notice. Says the parcel's coming from Sheppardsville, KY, to Michigan, for what that's worth.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Thanks, OP. I picked up some Criterions including pre-orders:
Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (pre-order)
Mildred Pierce (pre-order)
Punch-Drunk Love
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Devil's Backbone
Exterminating Angel

After Red Card discount and a $5 gift card, each title was around $17.05

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

I ordered three Criterions as well. I also wanted to get three newly released WAC:
Love in the Afternoon
The Yakuza
Wait Until Dark

I regret not pulling the trigger yesterday, as the first two have now disappeared from the site... :-(

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Only one order placed so far, but I'm debating whether to place an order with a couple of 4k titles, specifically thinking of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, Arrival and La La Land.

No UHD player yet, but I'd like to get one this year and know these would be titles on my list to buy. I fear that if I don't order now, I'll just get the Blu-ray for the latter two when they hit a $10 price point and will then end up upgrading at some point in the future. Oh, the vicious upgrading cycle.

Just got Billy Lynn and La La Land 4K, along with Doctor Strange 3D Target exclusive. With $15 in gift cards, came out to $14.50 for each one. I can live with that.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Well, I'm weak. Very, very weak. I decided to run by the store during my lunch break and made two purchases. The first was Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk 4k, Arrival 4k and complete Beavis and Butt-head DVD. The second was John Wick 4k, Howl's Moving Castle and My Neighbor Totoro.

So, now I've got three UHD titles but no player. At least I'm ready for one!

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Yeah, at $20 or so, there is no reason not to pick up the 4K version especially since it already includes the standard blu-ray.

I still couldn't justify picking up Billy Lynn 4K without at least renting the movie first since the reviews have been harsh, no matter how beautiful the 60fps video is supposed to look.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

The anime deals are surprisingly good if you can find three similarly priced items.

I got Shimoneta, Kamisama Kiss: S2 and Noragami Aragoto: S2 for $88.

Re: Target B2G1 2/12 - 2/18

Like many, I sure wish the $5 gift card items were eligible (even if they removed the gift card).

I ended up ordering these for a total of $62.92 with tax:

Dr. Strange 3D Target Exclusive ($27.99)
Donnie Darko 4 Disc ($31.59)
Rumble Fish Criterion ($26.19).
