Batman and Harley Quinn comes out on August 29th, so I was going to save a perk for that movie.
If I remember correctly, you have until October to use the perks. I am doing the same exact thing...saving one for Batman and Harley and using my other one (I also have 10k points) for probably this week.

Re: Target 7/23 through 7/29 - 20% off movies w/ Cartwheel

Found a copy of Fifth Element in 4k..only copy I saw (but I only spent 5 minutes looking which is nothing for me).


$19.99 (says $29.99 on site but it scanned at $20)
-20% off Cartwheel
-$10 Perk
-5% RedCard
---------------------
$5.69 + tax = Very Happy

Re: Target 7/23 through 7/29 - 20% off movies w/ Cartwheel

Went to Target on Monday to see what I could find with this 20% off deal going. What I found was the video(s) I might have wanted were higher there than at other retailers (Walmart/Best Buy), and that 20% off didn't make enough of a dent in the price to matter. They wouldn't price match, then take the 20% off. Example: American Horror Story S1 is $9.99 at Walmart, $12.99 at Target (or $14.99, I can't remember which, but for the sake of this example we'll call it $12.99). 20% off would've made it $10.39 which is still higher than Walmart, but they wouldn't price match first. Their video selection (at my Target anyway) has been cut down to 2 aisles from 3, so their available titles are fewer. There was nothing at the store that I really wanted (besides AHS), I already had the titles I might have wanted from their in-store selection. This sale was a bust for me. Apparently, Target isn't interested in competing with any other retailers which is really stupid.

It sounded like they were perfectly happy to compete at an equal price with any other store (unlike many/most Walmart's and Amazon anymore). They were willing to follow the conditions of using the Cartwheel, bit they weren't willing to provide you with an exception then beat every every store by 20% which might well take the sale under their unit cost.

That doesn't make any sense. If their item retails for more money than other stores and even their 20% off doesn't render that item cheaper than other stores, then what's my incentive to buy it at Target?

No real extra incentive, but you're not getting it for any less at the other store/online either. It will be the same price as any other store and it's in your hand minus any normal redcard discount. No shipping, no Prime fees, no waiting. Some things will be cheaper with the Cartwheel, everything else will be equal to elsewhere. They're just not letting your get it for 20% less than everyone else which eventually takes a near zero profit item and becomes a 'negative profit'

You're not saving any money getting it elsewhere either.

Picked up Hercules (1997) on BD and Road House (1989) on DVD for a little less than $19. I'm happy with that.

I don't care about their profit margins and neither do most people who are looking for bargains. When a retailer advertises a 20% off sale, but that 20% off doesn't make it cheaper than other retailers, then I won't buy it there. Period. If I want it badly enough, I'll buy it where I know I can save the most money. I didn't amass my 1065 DVDs and Blu-Rays by paying full price for them, I pride myself on my ability to sniff out the best deal. This wasn't a deal for me, it was a bust. If I can find that video cheaper elsewhere, I'll go elsewhere, I have no loyalty to any retailer beyond their ability to sell me what I want for as cheaply as I can find it.

I mostly agree with that comment. I've not bothered with this as the local Target is out of my way, requiring a detour, to anywhere I go on a regular basis (it's in a mall I avoid) and their "regular" prices on anything they have I might want just aren't that good. They have a fairly good selection, but it's mostly product for which I have zero interest or already own (with a library of over 3000 films and 500 TV shows it's hard to find anything "new" at local vendors).

Re: Target 7/23 through 7/29 - 20% off movies w/ Cartwheel

I picked up Lego Batman 3D. Plus I had two $5 giftcards.
My store has some movies by the checkouts, a random Baby Boss cardboard stand near the checkouts, an endcap near the grocery stuff, and then a few aisles in the entertainment. Only other 3D I saw was Sing.

Re: Target 7/23 through 7/29 - 20% off movies w/ Cartwheel

I went to two Targets and was unable to find anything I wanted. I noticed that they seem to have discontinued the multiple 3 or 4 Warner Brother movie sets in blu ray that they use to sell for $15 before any discounts. Also didn't see any of the multiple film James Bond sets by actor in blu, not that I need them. The TCM Classics 4 set DVDs that showed up at Big Lots also seem to be gone.

Yeah, the sale applies to box sets also.

Re: Target 7/23 through 7/29 - 20% off movies w/ Cartwheel

Absolutely no incentive for me to buy anything, either. There were no real deals to be found here (at least not on the things I was interested in). Target has made it very clear over the past few years that they couldn't care less about physical media. The horrible disorganization, consistently low stock and lack of any real deals here made this sale a bust for me.

Re: Target 7/23 through 7/29 - 20% off movies w/ Cartwheel

Aside from the handful of true loss leaders they run each year during critical shopping periods, bargain shoppers can safely ignore Target's media section.

I don't think the music section will survive 2017.
