    When into Target (University - Tampa, FL) on Monday to pick up a few pool items and found the special Optimus Prime gift card. It was located with the other gift cards in the greeting card section.

    I know the picture is blurry so here is what the card says:

    Mission:

    "Take cover. The evil Decepticons have invaded Earth to take over TARGET. And we need your help to stop them. Change your Target gift card into Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, to battle evil for justice and the best gifts. Be smart, Be brave. Be our hero, Good luck, warrior."


    FYI - I was able to put as little as $1 on the card.

    There's not really anything to "buy", is there? Whatever amount you put on, you can turn right around and use to buy something else. Or is there some surcharge I missed?

    Man, Richmonders everywhere nowadays it seems :)  I'll have to hit up a Target then. You happened to spot any of the movie deluxes yet? I saw just Bonecrusher and Swindle at the Short Pump Target the other day (passed) and picked up Voyager Blackout and Ratchet at Wal-mart on Midlothian last week.

    Plan on picking one up, just wondering though...there's no extra charge is there, or just what you put on the card? If the latter I may just pick one up in the next couple days.

    There is no charge at all. Just take them. My friends do that all the time. They have quite the collection of cool gift cards.
