Amazon Hijacks Great PS4, Switch, And Xbox One Game Deals From Target
Patience pays off.
Target is offering some deep discounts on games this week, aimed at encouraging costumers to use its in-store pickup feature. If you can make it out to a store, the 30% off you'll receive as a reward is pretty sweet--but if you're not near a Target or just don't feel like making the trip, Amazon is price-matching many of the same deals. And since it's Amazon, you don't need to go anywhere. The result is some great deals on games for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. [Update: Many of these deals continue to be available on Amazon, although specific pricing continues to change--primarily with prices going up, although a few have actually dropped further. You'll find updated pricing in the list at the bottom of this post, but another notable deal that's come up sees Final Fantasy VII Remake drop to $42, while its Deluxe edition drops to $56.]
To take advantage of the Target deals, you'll need to order online and select "Order Pickup" at checkout. The feature lets you swing by a Target store and grab your purchase at the customer service area. If you don't mind waiting a few days, though, you can get many of the same deals through Amazon.
There is one wrinkle, though. Amazon's sale price doesn't reflect the discount price, but many of the games have coupons and other promotions that take off the difference and match Target's sale prices. Some promotional prices are automatically applied at checkout, while others require you to click on a coupon to apply it. While you're at Amazon, you can also get a Fat Black Chocobo for Final Fantasy 14 with any purchase over $20.
The sale includes Devil May Cry 5 for $35, Kingdom Hearts 3 for $24.50, and Metro Exodus for $35, among many others. Which store you use depends on whether you want to get the games now or later, because the prices will be the same.
Check out the full list of eligible games at Target and Amazon should be matching them. If you find any deals that aren't matched, you may be able to score the deal by contacting Amazon customer service. The Target promotion ends after June 29, which presumably means Amazon will stop then too. But more discounts are coming soon, since Amazon has announced the dates for its annual Prime Day promotion.
