Target B2G1 Free Game Sale Includes Some Preorders – Alan Wake 2 Deluxe, Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D, And More


Target Circle Week has arrived, and it includes one of the retailer’s most popular promotions: buy two, get one free video games, books, movies, and board games. On the video game side of things, the vast majority of the eligible titles are for PS5 and Xbox Series X. The list of games even features some notable new releases and a bunch of upcoming games, including Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake, Romancing SaGa 2, Slitterhead, and Alan Wake 2’s physical edition. You’ll need to be a Target Circle member to take advantage of these deals as well as the many other offers available at Target through July 13, but signing up is free and takes less than a minute.

Target typically doesn’t include Nintendo Switch games in its B2G1 free sales, but Switch users can still take an advantage of a very good promotion. A bunch of Switch exclusives are discounted to only $35 this week, including Super Mario, Zelda, Kirby, and Donkey Kong games.

Target’s latest Circle Week Sale is trying to steal a bit of Amazon’s thunder ahead of Prime Day 2024 (July 16-17). As usual, Amazon kicked off a B2G1 free sale of its own to match Target’s promotion. Amazon doesn’t have as many games in its version of the sale, but it’s definitely worth checking out. Plus, these are mix-and-match sales, so even if you don’t find three games you want, you can always throw in a book, board game, Blu-ray, etc.

B2G1 free PS5 games for Target Circle Week

PlayStation 5 can pick up some notable new releases in Target’s B2G1 free sale. Multiple of the most recent PlayStation exclusives are up for grabs. For example, you could pick this trio of games and save $70 at checkout: Stellar Blade, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and Rise of the Ronin. Several other PlayStation console exclusives are eligible, including Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Helldivers 2.

The PlayStation 5 preorder offers are especially enticing. Fans of classic JRPGs will be happy to know Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake and Romancing SaGa 2: Revenge of the Seven (another remake) are eligible for this deal. Meanwhile, horror fans can grab a preorder for Alan Wake 2’s physical deluxe edition and Slitterhead, a new IP from the creator of Silent Hill.

B2G1 free Xbox games for Target Circle Week

Many of the notable deals for PS5 are also available for Xbox. That said, it’s worth mentioning that several games are cheaper on Xbox than PlayStation, including Hogwarts Legacy and Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. Also, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is sold out on PS5 at Target but in stock on Xbox (it’s in stock for PS5 at Amazon, though). On the preorder side, you won’t find quite as many notable inclusions, but Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake and Alan Wake 2 are here. Other eligible preorders include Balatro’s physical edition, Looney Tunes: Wacky World of Sports, Starship Troopers: Extermination, and more.

For Xbox owners, Target’s buy two, get one free sale will be of much greater interest than Amazon’s–Amazon doesn’t have very many notable inclusions for Xbox outside of Starfield, Dragon’s Dogma 2, and Resident Evil 4.
