Need to make an Easter basket? Hit Target. The store’s March 24-30, 2013 sale ad is packed with video game deals that will make gamers of any age squeal with delight. Yes, the primary draws are the drastically reduced 3DS XL and a buy two, get one free Skylanders promotion, but there’s so much happening this week that you almost have to stop by the store.
There are two big console deals to start at Target. The first is the 3DS XL, which is $159.99 this week instead of $199.99. The 3DS is also on sale for $129.99 instead of $169.99. It’s a good way to save a lot of money. I recommend going with the 3DS XL though, first because there is a limited edition Pikachu model out and second because buying it with a copy of either Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon ($39.99) or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity ($34.99) and registering them with Club Nintendo will net you a download of a free full game like Super Mario 3D Land.
Target also has a big Xbox 360 deal. The 4GB Kinect bundle is going to be $249.99 instead of $299.99. Also, it comes with a $15 Target gift card. On top of that, the 12 month Xbox Live Gold membership is on sale this week for $39.99 from $59.99.
Now, onto the sale games. There are an assortment on sale and the Target ad only shows some of them. Here’s what you can definitely see at any store.
