3X BONUS IS IN STORE ONLY
Check for your game and its base value at (multiply x3 for in store value):
YOU CANNOT TRADE IN GAMES NOT IN THEIR DATABASE. You receive a Target gift card which can be used for anything in the store. You can only trade in 3 games per transaction. Some reps are nice and let you do multiple transactions but some have been saying that you can only do one transaction per day. So if you have more than 3 games you might have to go to another store or come back the next day. YMMV.
Note that your Target needs to have a mobile kiosk as they are the ones who do the trade-ins. There is a store locator on the trade in site. Mobile kiosk hours are also different than actual store hours so you might want to check this if you are you are seeing this post late in the afternoon. Also suggest that you do them sooner rather than later as TIV tend to drop quickly once the ball starts rolling and all the CAG and slickdeals flippers get word.
Update: Looks like TIV have dropped by about $5-20ish for a bunch of games probably depending on how heavily they were traded in. Double-check the TIV if you plan on going in. Might not be worth the trip for you. Still some decent TIV to be had though...albeit no longer amazing like before. Prices for some games that dropped on Monday apparently have gone up.
Update 2: From Fellow Gaffer (still seems YMMV by store and mobile employee though)
Hello all. A Target Mobile Manager here, as well as a long time member/lurker.
Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this but we are locking in your quotes for 7 days now, instead of 24 hours.
So trade in now, it doesn't matter if the gift card system is having issues. Get the best value now and go back for your money later if you must.
Btw, whoever is telling you 3 trades per household/guest/forever is a fucking idiot. You can do multiple transactions in a day if you want to.
And by all means, take advantage and wreck our system. The more successful this deal is, the more often they will do it.
