Taken from SD, thanks chemdude!

"Just received Meijer's ad for sale starting tomorrow and MGS4 is pictured for $39.99. They also have a $5 off coupon in the ad for use on any general merchandise $24.97 and up from June 29-July 1 to make it $34.99! Posted Image

The coupons are available at the front of the store. For those who don't know, Meijer is a super Walmart-type store in OH, IN, IL, KY, MI."

I remember living in michigan and they always had great deals on everything. They really should think about moving south.

Does anyone know the trade in value at gamestop?

Edit: bah, it's only $30. I dunno if I should get it. Are there any metal gear first timers who enjoy the game?

I played MGS1, but got burned out on Raiden in 2. I rented MGS4 cause I had a coupon and was enjoying it w/ the knowledge I had. However I only got through the middle east zone and my buddy said that I will get a lot more out of the game if I finished 2 and 3.

Bottom Line...You can probably enjoy the game w/ having just basic knowledge, but you won't get the true value out of the story.

Yep, got this ad today, so i can confirm this. I got a $3 off general merchandise coupon when I bought Nights the other day, so maybe I can use both coupons and get this for close to 50% off.

Edit: Yep, just checked both coupons and they should work together as the $5 is off one item and the $3 if off the total order. Nice.

The OP said he took this from Slickdeals. ;)

Hmm...I may get this even though I still need to play through MGS1-3 and PO, and was planning on waiting for the inevitable, expanded rerelease.

Would anyone with the coupon be willing to pick me up a copy? You don't need to go out of your way to pick it up, but if you are stopping by anyways, why not? :D

Just got back with my copy. They had to adjust the price down to the $39.99 because it was still ringing up at $59.99. Plus the computers weren't recognizing the $5 off coupon either. Maybe they'll have everything updated in their systems when everybody else gets out there.

But I got out the door for $32.99 + tax with my extra $3 off coupon. Nice deal.

Also, they had the Xbox 360 version of Hellboy: The Science of Evil for $29.99 and it rang up that way in their computers. The PS3 version was $59.99. I'll make a separate topic for Hellboy though.

Meijer's needs to expand to the southeast :)

And to the Northeast as well. I don't know how many times I've seen a Meijer's deal like this posted on CAG, one that I'd jump on in a second, and gotten all psyched only to remember a few seconds later "Oh yeah, only in the Midwest." :bomb:

It's hard for a family owned company to expand like that. If they were a public company, then they would have the funds to expand more easily. It's not helping that the new areas that Meijer has moved in to aren't doing too well. A prime example is the suburbs of Chicago where they opened a few new stores but are having trouble fighting off Walmart.

trade in value with edge card on release date was 38 with edge card. I know because I did it to pay off my le from the mgs4 bundle I got from the walmart deal.

Just got back, game-in-hand. Their computers are not showing the $39.99 price, so I am thinking its a misprint on their ad. If you plan to pick this up for $35, you prolly ought to be getting out there soonish. (Yea! for my second purchased PS3 games since I bought the PS3 about 1.5 years ago.....)

Crud, I just looked through all my local meijer ads online and there is no metal gear. I looked at an Ohio ad and they do have metal gear. This sucks.

Deal is dead my way. Both Meijers have a sign up saying it was marked wrong and they are sorry for any confusion. Still picked up Battlefield Bad Company with the $10 off coupon. Maybe bringing the ad into best buy or circuit city would get a price match though

It's still worth picking up for $60.

...or $50 if anyone wants my extra copy. ;)

I just got one for $39.99 plus $5 off with the coupon, but it rang up as $59.99. I showed the cashier the ad and they gave me the sale price.

They also have $10 off any purchase of $49.99 or more, so I picked up another game as well.

Lucky for me.

I just got back from the Canton Meijers. It rang up at $59.99; however, a friendly employee working there was helpful and added a $20 M. Coupon (so Meijer's or Manufactors?) and I got it for $37.09 after tax.

I did! I experienced the first one a little, but never finished it or played the others! Personally, it is my favorite game of the year so far! I've started playing MGS 3 (its a prequel to the other two) and will play the others as well!

Well I got back from Meijer and it rang up for $59.99, but showed the cashier the ad. He said that he couldn't tell if the ad was the same thing as what I wanted to purchase (kinda funny, since the cover is basically a giant face). But he did eventually correct the price and did let me use the coupon. I probably won't be buying another PS3 game for a while, so I'm glad I got this one cheap.

just picked up a copy at the Ann Arbor Carpenter Meijer. Marked 59.99, but all the sales associates knew it was 39.99 in the flyer and gave me the discount. 37 after tax and coupon
