Looking to jump in to next-gen consoles, but concerned about the $400 price tag? Well, have no fear Target is here! No, seriously, according to Reddit user That1One_Guy if you go to target you can purchase a repackaged PS4 for the low price of $280 IF it has a small red label at the bottom. Not all Targets do this either though. A good amount of Targets return the product itself to the company and list it as defective. So, if you are lucky enough you may be able to find a Target around you that doesn’t.
“The only way to know is to look for the small red label. They kind of hide them so you buy the full price ones but if you ask they’ll tell you if they have a repackage. ”
Which is very responsible of them to do, but if you plan on purchasing a PS4 this can help you with that. Comparatively speaking GameStop is planning on selling used PS4 consoles at $369 which was revealed last November.
Now with repackage people do seem to be a little weary about this and that is a good standpoint as a consumer. The product has already been in the hands of another consumer and for some reason they decided to return the product. Another Reddit user also chimed in after purchasing the the repackaged console with the following:
“Yes indeed they do! I was in a target last month and was browsing. Sales guy walked up and asked if I was interested in a ps4. He then told me of a return that had just come in. I bought it and the two year return policy for 347 after tax. Great deal.” ~ Thedrixel
While this seems to be a great deal for some also note there can also be an issue with the product itself. With most repackaged products you will have the standard 30 days to test it and return it if any problems arise. Before checking out make sure you make them aware of the red label (Otherwise you won’t get the deal), inquire about your personal return date, and if you are interested enough grab the additional 2 years like Thedrixel did with the total still falling below GameStop’s used price without the 2 year additional warranty.
So, here is your chance to grab a slightly used PS4 at a solid price of $280. The downside to this is that every Target may not have this and you have to actually look for it. If you’re interested go to your local Target and look for PS4’s with a red label at the bottom. At this point you may be thinking you hit jackpot, but be sure to protect yourself and make 100% sure you would be able to return it if the console is faulty. Protect and enjoy yourselves!
