Not sure if posted already, but I just got back from Target and all the XBox Live cards were on sale for 50% off.

12+1 month Gold - 29.98

1600 points - 9.98

Just thought I'd let folks know.

Anyone got proof of this?

Most likely YMMV
No Thanks

I would also like to note, that I think this is some sort of error on their part, as cards like this usually aren't clearanced. They are destroyed in field or returned to the manufacturer.

I'm just reporting what I saw.

EDIT: I think I just figured out what this is.

The clearance prices are probably for the cards in clamshells. Those are active cards right out of the package. However, the Target I went to put clearance prices on the non-active, non-clamshell cards. These have to be activated at the register.

This is probably store-error on their part, so YMMV indeed.

It's Target specifically, they do this stuff all the time.

I remember someone had proof of them putting BioShock Infinite on clearance for like 20-30 bucks right after it came out
No Thanks

Yup - I'm actually surprised any retail outlet still has any of these stocked.
