The deal below has expired, but no worries. You can still check out available coupons and "follow" the store to receive alerts for future offers.

Playstation 3 60G (price error?) but questionable

When you goto the link it says "PlayStation 3 Computer Entertainment System with 60GB Hard Drive", but when you are at the payment page it shows "PlayStation 3 Move Advanced Shooter Grip (PlayStation 3)". I didn't actually make payment, so I don't know what it says on the reciept. I am assuming it will say advanced shooter grip and that that is what you'll receive. good luck though to those who try!

This is what i got from them. Dear Target Guest, We are contacting you regarding your order #blah blah blah.

We are sorry, but we are unable to offer you either of these items at this time and have canceled your order. Your credit card was not charged. We sincerely regret this inconvenience.

I ordered one through Amazon but I am about 99.9% sure it will be canceled. They no longer make the 60GB. I'm sure this has spread like wildfire and thousands of people placed orders. They will all be canceled even if it was a shooter because they are probably to smart to send out 10,000 shooters and have everyone send them back. But there is the .1% I might get it. And maybe there will be some kind of gift card. Probably not though.

I did get it though amazon and it said Playstation 3 console on my receipt. But I was looking at the 60gb console and they no longer make it. So I am guessing they will never get it back it stock and the order will be canceled. Worth a try though.

It's highly unlikely this deal will ever be honored but you got to take the chance it might be. How long do you think they will leave the deal up if people call and point out the problem? How many will get cheated of their chance to try? That's my only point.

mrjeffrey Jan 16, 2011
True, I was excited myself till lots of people started calling in and telling their stories about them charging you the full $300 and if you read Target's pricing policy, they won't honor misprints, this is similar to the Puma incident and no one said a thing during that mistake. Also, it's not that much of a secret, if you look on Amazon, it's #1 best seller.

Not one single reputable company can or will charge your credit card for more than you agreed in your payment contract with them. It's highly illegal. I was here for the Puma 40% x x x and some of them got honored. So, I don't get your point there. And I accidentally hit the thumbs up mistaking it for reply. Any further chat about this should go through our Dealplus email option here.

From the email they sent with my order: "We cannot confirm the price of an item until your order enters the shipping process nor will we charge your credit card until your order enters the shipping process. Please note that your Order Acknowledgement means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been shipped or that the price of an item has been confirmed. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our Web site may be mispriced. As part of our shipping procedures, we verify price before an item is shipped out." ...which means nobody is getting this order. :-P

I ordered this through Amazon.com and selected Target for the seller option. It shows up at checkout and on the final receipt as a "Playstation 3 console". I figure that if I don't get a console, which I'm 99% sure will be the case, I can easily return or cancel via Amazon's amazing customer service.

Did the same thing. If amazon was to ship the shooter they would take it back or they will just cancel the order. It's worth a try. Oh mine showed up as a PS3 console on my receipt to.

It is not expired yet, as to whether this is a real deal or not, when you get to checkout, it says it is a PlayStation 3 Move Advanced Shooter Grip (PlayStation 3)Console, but if you go all the way through ordering it and look back at the order, it says it is PlayStation 3 Computer Entertainment System with 60GB Hard Drive, I'm taking the chance and ordering it, returning is always possible on the grounds of falsified advertising.

THIS WORKS - Here's how you do it - log onto Target.com first, and set up a One-Click account - it takes two seconds. Then go in and buy the console at the $39.99 price using the one-click purchase. Done. No mention that it's just a controller or anything like that.

I ordered this by using one-click checkout. That was the only way I could keep the $39.99 price and it remains as the PS3 in the checkout and doesn't switch over to the controller. So regardless of what I get, at least my receipt will read PS3. Thanks for the tip... I hope this works!
