Target's ever-popular Buy One Get One 50% Off sale, where gamers can buy one game and get half off of a second returns in a limited capacity. Starting Sunday, August 11, Target will begin its latest sale but this time around there are a few hoops to jump through in order to make the most of the sale. For one, the sale covers a limited selection of PS4 and Xbox One games only. Second, all orders must be placed online using the "Order Pickup" delivery option.
While the advertisement says "Select PS4 and Xbox One games," it's likely that there will be a broad variety of games available as part of the sale. As an example of what will be available, Target lits six different games. Those titles include Mortal Kombat 11, Kingdom Hearts 3, NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, FIFA 19, America Ninja Warrior Challenge, and World War Z. Target will clearly be offering a wide variety of new and old games, and of diverse genres, for sales-watchers to purchase.
The one hiccup for some game buyers will be the requirement to use the "Order Pickup" delivery option, which requires that buyers pickup their purchases directly from a local store. For potential buyers who don't live near a Target, that means the sale won't be very helpful. For those who go through with a sale, sometimes not all purchases will immediately available as Target restocks.
As is typical for these kinds of sales, the lower-priced game of the two being purchased will have its price discounted 50%. For the best savings, try and pick two games of similar price.
Target is well known for its Buy One Get One 50% off video game sales, with one held as recently as April earlier this year. They're usually in-store rather than limited to Order Pickup, but perhaps Target is trying to clear out some online stock. August is a month of slow game releases, after all, so holding a big sale to build up some momentum going into September, October, and November is a smart choice.
For those who aren't ready to buy a bunch of new video games just yet, don't fret. Target and other retailers will likely continue to have sales throughout the rest of the summer. It's just a matter of time before the BOGO 50% sale returns. Otherwise, check out Target.com starting Sunday, August 11, to see what video games Target will be offering.
