Yes. Right after you place an order on the next screen, it's a button like view or modify your order (or something like that). Click on that and it will ask you how many you want to cancel. Just click on the - button and select two (out of three) and you will see the updated order right away and an email confirmation of the cancellation.

You can get the Shadow of War season pass for $10 if you return the regular one and order 3 of the gold edition on target.com and cancel 2.

Looks like i missed out. All Gold editions are out of stock online. Can you do the same method in store? Buy three and immediately return the other two to customer service?

Yes. But I doubt they will even have one left in the store at this point

yeah, it's a good deal, but couldn't find two other games i wanted that i didn't have or preordered, maybe Shadow of War, but never finished or barely got into Mordor (thought i want to try again), and then finding a 3rd would be impossible. is Black Ops III a single player game? any good? too bad...

[Heavy Sigh] Okay, I will walk you through this :

1) Find the game you want on www.target.com and add it to your cart
2) Press the Continue Shopping button
3) Add the same game to your cart a second time
4) Press the Continue Shopping button
5) Add the same game to your cart a third time
6) Press the Continue To Checkout button
7) Complete the purchase
8) Click the link at the bottom of your order confirmation page to Review Your Order
9) Click Cancel Item button
10) It will show (-) 3 (+) Items
11) Click the (-) button once and hit Okay to cancel 2 of the 3 games
12) Select reason "No Longer Wanted" (why not be honest?)
13) You will immediately see that two of the games are now cancelled. The remaining game will show screwed-up tax price, but that will correct when it ships.

It has a single player component. And it is pretty good. But I wouldn't buy that one now. It will almost certainly be way cheaper on Black Friday. Besides, since it's cheaper than RDR2, you won't maximize you savings on that game unless you get two other games of the same $59.99 price as RDR2 (for math reasons).

I think they caught on. I tried this method with SOW and target cancelled all three on me.

Any game, done the method I describe above will get that game for 33% off.

Three copies of RDR2 (then cancel 2) would be $39.99 + tax

Three copies of BLOPS3 (then cancel 2)would be $19.99 + tax. -- You don't need the Gold Edition if you only want to play Single Player.

Three copies of Shadow of War (then cancel 2) would be $39.99 for the Regular version and $67 for the Gold Edition (which has a Steelbook and a Saason Pass for two single player expansions and two other minor expansions). -- The PS4 Gold Edition is much cheaper ($48) for reasons that are unknown; it's on sale the XO version isn't.

Nope. I did it like three hours ago for Player Unknown and it worked.

NOTE : I made that mistake before though. If you just check your Order Status page it WILL say "Cancelled" by the item. BUT, if you click on that order, you will see that only the two that you actually cancelled were cancelled. The other order isn't! That mistake is why I now had two separate copies of Shadow of War Gold Edition arrive at my house today.

I would also recommend taking a screen shot once you place your order and do the cancellation if you want to remember what the total is. Because your order screen afterwards looks really screwy, but you do get charged the correct amount once the order ships.

It's the funky sales tax that messes up the order total.

Hadn't thought of PUBG great call. I've picked up the Mario amiibos, Shadow of Mordor, .hack Last Recode so far, and a barrage or preorders so far.

Yeah, I haven't seen it dip below $40 in a loooong time. I jumped on it as well since mine ends in Feb.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Can someone tell me what the actual price of Horizon Zero Dawn in the PS Store is now...I thought the other day I saw it on sale for around $27 but I went to the on-line site and it's showing $38.....but at this point with Black Friday so close I might hold off but I swear it was $27 which is not bad at all.
