Amazon Announces ‘Buy 2 Get 1 Free’ PlayStation 4 “GR8TNESS” Promo, Matches Target… Sort Of

on November 10, 2013 9:11 PM

Earlier today we reported that retailers Best Buy, Gamestop, Toys “R” Us, and FYE would not be matching Target’s ‘Buy 2 Get 1 Free’ promotion that’s currently running for all video games, including titles for the upcoming PlayStation 4. Online retailer Amazon is going to try to play spoiler and rain all over Target’s plans by offering a similar, and arguably more convenient (considering you don’t have to leave home), version of the same promo.

Keep in mind though that Amazon’s promo is strictly for PlayStation 4 titles, where as Target’s version of the promo includes all current gen titles as well.

Here are the details on how the promo will work, straight from Amazon’s page:

Promotion Starts on Tuesday 11/12/13 at 9:00am PST through 1:00pm PST or while supplies last.
