Target bad at honoring gaming ad deals

8bitfix writes: Today, my husband goes in to purchase The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D at Target. They have an offer this week that gives you another 3DS game 50% off with the purchase of the game. Of course, we are not the typical gaming family; we need a his and her copy because we don't want to have to wait until one is done, for the other to play it. So he wants to get one copy and get the other 50% off.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's all I hear. The whining and complaining of entitlement.

You got denied a deal --it happens. Deal with it. It was an isolated incident and hardly represents the store franchise as a whole.

I had a bad experience at a UPS store --does that mean all of UPS sucks? No. But then again, I have common sense and you have no sense of honesty and a major ax to grind.

Christ, someone hit the red button, lol.

It can be called false advertising on the manager's part, and yes it's considered illegal. The manager can honestly get in trouble for that.

How the hell is something like THIS complaining of entitlement? (And I WORKED in retail for a few years)

If you read the entire story, you will see that is was not an "isolated incident". People should read before they comment. That's why there's too much negativity here.

I had the absolute misfortune of reading your article, and it's a whole lot of boo-hooing with no point.

You clearly have an ax to grind (which makes the "journalism" aspect of your job pretty sad) and no one really cares.

I wonder if the author works for Kmart.


Beatboxtaun2555d ago

No, they just have amazing deals. Kmart was never known for their gaming section because, well, it was horrid. Now they are putting a lot of focus on it and are really benefiting us gamers there. I guess it's because it's all Kmart has to hold on to. That and I suppose appliances? I don't know.

hmmm good idea go with a friend tomorrow and get your zeldas together and get them for $29.99 each

MidnytRain2555d ago (Edited 2555d ago )

Lol, that's funny.

"Ah! Right here, sir! I'll just pick up the game, mosey on down to the register to make the transaction and...

Oh-p, wait, can't give it to ya. Have a nice day!"

EDIT: What's with the stealth edit, tweet75?

They should sue Target

I forgot to mention that I had pre-purchased Disney's Epic Mickey and Kinect and got those pre-order cards that you're supposed to hand onto to go pick up your copy upon launch. The employees and management advised us that by pre-purchasing, it does not guarantee us a copy. Why in the world did I do it then, just to get a card? Makes no sense.
