That’s right if you pre-order games from Target you will receive a $5 Target gift card. All you have to do is reserve your copy of a upcoming game for$1 and upon the games release you bring in your reservation card and pay for the game and Target will give you a $5 gift card, so you are only getting $4 but that’s $4 in your pocket for future purchases at Target.
The program is set to start April 19th and Target will start this offer with the following games, Punch Out (Wii), EA Sports Active (Wii), Ghostbuster (Multi-Platform), Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (Wii), and UFC 2009 Undispute (Multi-Platform).
Here’s what Target’s Mark Schindele, Senior Vice President had to say:
“Beginning April 19, Target guests can purchase a collectible reservation card, only in stores, for $1. When they bring the reservation card back within seven days of release to purchase their game, they will receive a $5 Target GiftCard to put toward a future purchase.“We’ve created a reservation guarantee that ensures guests will get their hands on popular games the day they are released, and a $5 GiftCard upon purchase adds even more value,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president, Target. “We are constantly striving to make sure our guests find everything they need to work, live and play all in one convenient and simplified shopping experience.”
Not a bad deal if you shop Target. I for one have never pre-orderd through Target but I may just give them a try.
