…Gift Cards get high tech?

Target Best Buy Gift Cards

This year, gift cards go beyond just plastic as companies add features to lure you into buying the profit-filled gifts.

New card ideas include Target, which has added a small digital camera to their card, and Best Buy, which chose to go with a speaker that can connect to any MP3 player and play music through the included mini headphone jack.

While the Target card makes sense, because you can use it to capture holiday memories, send thank you pics to the gift giver, and even use it as a camera stand-in on your way to buying a real digital camera of your choice, the Best Buy one seems a little strange, since I can’t imagine the tiny speaker sounding any good as it attempts to keep up with the enthusiastic gift recipient.

Either way though, it’s an interesting idea, and it will be interesting to see what gets attached to a gift card next.

…EGPApparel is a new way to play?

EGPApparelIf you happen to be shopping for shirts inside of a Target, then be sure to stop by the EGPApparel section, because they’re selling shirts that not only feature artwork from Experimental Gameplay Project games, they actually feature the games themselves on a CD that comes with each one.

Supporting indie game developers and getting a unique looking shirt out of the deal; all at the same time?

I’ll take two.

…Target targets pricing?

Target Dollar Sign

Apparently Target has a neat way of keeping track of how many times they’ve discounted a product. Normally their prices end in 9 (14.99 or 19.99 for example), but each time Targets discounts the product, they drop the final digit of the price by one, with the lowest being a 4 (14.94 or 19.94 for example). If you see something you want, and the price ends in something lower than an 8, chances are, you should probably buy it before Target stops selling it all together.
