OK. The Best Buy in Bloomington Illinois still has 6 (I counted them today at 12 Noon) Joust $49.99 12 month subscription cards.
The May @Gamer magazine (
MSRP $4.99) has a $20 coupon for 12 month XBL cards. I haven't personally checked the magazine for the coupons, I am taking the information from that thread at face value.
So................. $49.99 + $4.99 - $20.00 = $34.98 That would put the net deal at $34.98 for 1 year of XBL (this value will vary with your local tax rate, I didn't add tax to the cost of the magazine). If you add in the returns for being a Rewards Zone member and a Gamer Club Member it would end up around $32.58. You would also get a code to download Joust, which is no longer available to purchase from XBox Live. That is/was a $5 value alone.
Hope someone in town gets to take advantage of this. Good luck all.
