traded the Xbox One in for the Target PS4 deal this week. Only paid the 50 buck difference. Good deal all around for those wanting to keep the Xbox One or get a PS4 with the TV.

Best buy associate here. They've changed the Xbox offering from just The MC collection to the AC 500GB and just the 500GB Xbox one if still around.
Now if there is a free xbox at another Best Buy store, we can bypass the out of stock by ordering an Xbox that qualifies from the promo and scanning the serial number that store gives us. But that's if the store is kind enough to ship to that store. I have ran into some stores unwilling to part with the stock.

Picked up my smasung tv from in store pick up today, looks like a pretty good TV for $250. I haven't decided if I'm going to use it for something, gift it, do a giveaway or something fun

Thanks for the input

Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any of the 500GB XB1 models at that specific store so unless I want to try getting another store to give up a XB1 which seems like a lot of hassle

finally sold Xbox One for $300. Mission accomplished.

BTW, as many people already said, the TV is pretty good for the price. I'm really satisfied with it.
But I haven't really played games a lot to test.

It's really not that bad. I mean, yeah, it's kinda shady, but Target/Best Buy aren't out anything really. Maybe 2 minutes of a couple of employees' time, but that Xbox is just gonna go back to Microsoft or sold on the floor, neither of which will have any real consequences.

But you probably shouldn't brag about it.

You know man, I have a feeling it will and come the holidays the 1tb Sku will be $349.99 with the MCC games. I don't see them not having a $349.99 system because it gives them a price differential between them and the PS4. So I think you are onto something. All the special bundles, Forza 6, Halo 5, Madden are all 1TB Sku's.

1TB needs to be standard on both One and PS4. 500gb is not enough space and it sucks having to clear out space or having to replace the harddrive on the PS4 specifically and reinstall everything on the new drive.

The crap he did is the reason it's just getting harder and harder to return things. Aside from affecting the stores inventory, it's just a shit thing to do.

Surprised Target actually did this. I'd usually do it to Walmart mostly because they'll take stuff like that and fuck them for screwing me on so many defective new items.

Brilliant, I imagine more people would do this if they were aware of the Target deal.

In all honesty if Sony would offer better deals on the PS4 people wouldn't have to do shady shit like that to get a system. Sony got dudes thirsty, and they aint givin out no free water.

Lol the system is bundled with the Last of Us or Batman for $399 and the systems are readily available. People doing shady shit are asses.

Sony doesn't have to. The PS4 is already selling well. They don't have to deep discount their system to get it to sell.

I like how "trading in"=returning without receipt. Might as well "trade-in" that TV at its full MSRP of $430 and make a $300 profit, too!

Now that I think about it, SlickDeals and CAG are probably already trying to do that...

Yea I am surprised they accepted a return for a serialized item because they should be able to see if they sold it. Pretty shitty thing to do, as others have said.

Sure, but you are all overestimating how much they give a shit about this sort of thing.

exactly. It costs Target NOTHING.

Love all the faux outrage.

News flash for some of you not knowing how this works. All they will do is return the unit to the distributor/company for a credit. Nothing was wrong with the unit at all. And their customer service at the store were the ones that opened it for the first time.

No one is losing their job. Relax and chill with the outrage.

Many retailers have a no-receipt return policy. These retailers will take items from people who openly admit they don't know their unopened item was purchased at their store or not, and it has zero effect on the return process. This happens frequently every holiday season. If the store sells that ISBN, then the clerks are offered to do a no-receipt return policy. Repeat, clerks for many different retailers are authorized to take returns for unopened items without a receipt, even if it isn't purchased at that store.

The cost of the return is the same cost of a regular sale. Their inventory numbers go up one item, while their COH goes down the cost of one item.

You may want to go back to school, if you think it doesn't cost target anything. They create these deals to SELL items not to exchange them with items purchased from other stores. It costs money to process returned merchandise and Target is not netting anything on it.

They're actually losing money on it because they issued a refund at retail while the only receive credit from the distributor at cost. They refunded the margin that they never collected in the first place. Even if they return it to stock as an unopened item, they will be selling at no margin. Despicable.

I detest people like you that do shit like this. This is so scummy and really says a lot about you and the type of person you are.
