Sign up for the Best Buy Rewards Zone Gamer Club and get an exclusive Red Faction Guerilla figurine by mail.


You have to buy the game to get it, not just sign up.

hrrm, I wonder if they didn't want to put any prices in for E3 in case big price drops get announced for any of the systems. The ad for 6/7 should be interesting if it leaks pre-E3.

(woo, Weeds Season 3 for $16.99, not bad for Bluray... hopefully Amazon matches it.)

No kidding. There isn't even any good movies in the ad. I thought for sure leading up to Father's Day we'd see some good ads. Say what you want about Circuit City, but they kept BB on their toes.

Amazon is essentially there right now at $17.99 for Season 3 (BRD). It's no $10ish like for Season 1/2 from Christmas, but still.

Really weak stuff from BB the last few weeks. Sad.

Yep, I just shook my head when people were celebrating CC's demise and stomping on its grave.

You didn't have to shop there, you didn't even have to like them, but you shouldn't celebrate a big competitor going out of business. That just means higher prices and lousy sales and service for everyone. Maybe when the economy improves Micro center or Fry will decide to go national. That would help.

D'oh, thanks for pointing that out. I knew Amazon had been as low as $16.99 but didn't know they were still that low. I may just order it since I'm coming to the end of Season 2... This is about as cheap as S3 has gotten, isn't it?
