Save 20% on a video game accessory with game purchase

Looking to pick up a cool new title and an add-to-the-fun accessory for your video gaming setup? Then this is the perfect time!

Just choose any game priced $29.99 or more, and you'll save 20% on any video game accessory, including an extra controller, and so much more.




Follow these steps:


Rock Band: Beatles bundles are on the list of eligible accessories. Sort the list by price: high to low

Ends up with Rock Band Beatles bundle for $199.

Works for other high-priced accessories as well - ION drumkit, 120GB HDD, SF4 sticks (if they are ever available) etc.

$50 off Beatles sounds good to me if you are planning on wanting all the Rock Band stuff immediately. Works with the classic rock pack, lego rock band preorder, etc.

List of some 29.99 games for the lazy:

Isn't 20% off only $40 dollars off?

Hm, very interesting. I have a friend who is intent on buying this bundle, and up till now I've been telling him that Amazon + ECA is the best way to go. I may have to consider this.

Only thing that is irking me is that there's no possibility for Pick Up on the Beatles bundle. I know it's not available yet, but $7.50 shipping + tax is nearly negating the extra 10%, and tax in my part of NC is only 6.75%. :( At least it looks like they're taxing the $200 price of RB beatles rather than $250 (saves a few bucks for me)

Uh, so I guess I missed some really big (and strange) news :rofl:.

I hadn't heard a thing about this and thought you must have been joking. But it appears to be real... Amazing...

As for the deal, not bad, but I already have the Beatles RB bundle preordered at GS so I can spend my credit (cheaper than cash even with the 20% discount factored in).

Gear!

The Beatles bundle is the only thing that could ever get me to consider a Rock Band game. Wonder if the Who DLC will work with this. (Am I revealing my age here? :) )

I'm figuring that this will drop fast, though, with the much-publicized "burnout" on guitar games. And by "figuring" I mean "hoping."

Okay I did some research, Oblivion GOTY + 60GB starter pack = $108, only $8 more than buying the 60GB HD by itself! In for one! Thanks OP!

Xbox 360 wireless headset will be only $40 with this deal! That's the cheapest I've seen it. MS points also sound tempting...

I think this is a good deal on the Bestbuy.com promo other than the rock band bundles:

$100 for 2 wireless headsets 360 AND Tom Clancy Endwar 360 (headset package)

At other retailers:
Tom Clancy Endwar $20-$30
Wireless Headsets (x2) $100

Its like throwing in the game for free. Metacritic score is 77, so it might be decent.

OK, could someone be really slick and get them to pricematch the Walmart $100 complete GHWT band kit, then buy a game exceeding $30, to in effect get 20% off the $100 kit, plus the cost of whatever game you got? I was going to buy Fight Night Round 4 at release, so I already have a game I wanted to get...I wonder how tough it would be to pull the rest of that gadget...

If you read the deal you'd see its online only, so no price matching

Yup, I remembered that a few minutes after posting. Too bad. That would've been an unbelievable discount. Even still I might price match the Walmart kit since I have a giftcard to BB but not to Walmart.

How long does this deal last for? I was planing on picking up Infamous next Tuesday... and if I can get a $50 PSN card for $40, then I'm in! Also can anyone tell me if an online purchase will give me points towards my BB Gamers Club?
