Smart Move, Hubs

While at work today I got a call from Stephen.

S – “Hey babe. I have a proposition to run by you.”

Me – “Really? What is it you are wanting?” (I’ve gotten a few of these phone calls over the years…)

S- “Target is giving away $50 gift cards when you buy the XBox Arcade.”

Me – *silence*

S- “You know I’ve been wanting to upgrade mine, and if we got this one we could finally sell the old one and that would pay for the new one.”

Me – “So, what are we talking about doing?!”

S- “We could get you a $50 gift card to Target, sell the old XBox, and actually make money off of a new purchase.”

Me – *silence*

S- “So, do you wanna go get one after work? I checked around and they have them in stock.”

Me- “So you’re telling me that if we get you a new XBox, it’s basically free and I get $50?”

S- “Yes.”

I love this man.

To explain… Target had a misprint in their Ad this week and listed the XBox for $199 with a $30 gift card.

The AD said it came with a headset, but it actually didn’t, so they reduced the price AND upped the gift card because Walmart’s price went way down.

So, I now have one of these with $50 on it.

Thanks Target!

    Wait…. so they honored it!? ringl got what he wanted?!

  2. Someone is gonna pay 150$ for an old XBOX when they can get the new one for such little more?

    I feel like I’m missing something.

      My bad on the explanation…
      the awesome deal we got is over (it was Friday only). We only have to make $80 to break even, and the system actually came with 2 games that we can sell too. It made sense in my head, haha

  3. im still confused…
