One of my favorite things that happens in deal world is when both Target and Amazon concurrently host excellent sales. That’s happening now (just in time to get a Valentine’s Day gift), and you can score big savings at either retailers on video games, Blu-rays, DVDs, board games, and books. Just add two items shown on Target or Amazon’s deal pages, and when you buy one at regular price, you’ll get the second item of equal or lesser value for half off.

There are always a ton of products to comb through (it’s a good problem to have). In case it’s helpful, we’ve picked out a batch of products we think are steals during Amazon and Target’s respective sales.

It never hurts to stock up on classic board games, like Clue. The latest version of the title debuted in early 2023, and features redesigned characters who don some stunning attire, looking more like Knives Out than the old-timey aesthetic of the Clue game you might’ve been raised on. Despite the new look, it’s the same great whodunnit board game that’s fun for a wide range of ages.

Disney Villainous: Introduction to Evil

Strategy games don’t have to just be for grownups. The fantastic Disney Villainous: Introduction to Evil (Disney 100 Edition) is a family-friendly strategy game — arguably one of the best around. That it’s based on familiar Disney characters makes it something that players of any age can get into.

Horrified: Greek Monsters

Ravensburger’s Horrified: Greek Monsters is a fantastic tabletop experience, and one that can turn just about anyone into a would-be Percy Jackson fan. The game maker claims that this title is easy to learn (it’s rated for ages 10 and up), and each game is rather quick for tabletop, taking an hour per session.

Christopher Nolan’s latest film Oppenheimer, which enjoyed huge theatrical success alongside Greta Gerwig’s Barbie (we’ll never forget you, Barbenheimer), is looped into the sales at Target. Considering this film was difficult to find when it debuted on physical media, it’s great that you can score a discount now at Target. It’s worth adding that Barbie (Amazon, Target), too, is eligible for this discount.

Spirited Away

Some of Studio Ghibli’s memorable films are looped into the sale at Target. If you need a good starting point to the catalog of animated classics, check out Spirited Away (Amazon, Target). It’s one of the studio’s most popular hits, and many of its characters are both iconic and creepy (a signature trait that Studio Ghibli never fails to ingrain). If you’ve already seen or own Spirited Away, the Steelbook versions of Howl’s Moving Castle (Amazon, Target), My Neighbor Totoro (Target), and Princess Mononoke (Target) are also discounted.
