I was just in TRU and saw several taped ads in the videogame sections.

1:Selected game guides are 50% off I got Star wars TFU2 hardcover CE for $15.

2:All PSP/PS2 games are B1G1 50% off with their clearance games this is better than the BB current PSP deal

3:get a $50 gift card when purchasing the white Wii console there's a specific stock ID # for this Wii I think it's one of the earlier models w/i motion plus.

You may make out better price matching the Wii offer @ BB but you'll need to have a pic of the taped ad in TRU.

For those who've had difficulties getting TRU gift card price matches @ BB I was able to get BB to PM the $40 gift card offer last week very easy. They charged me $40 each for bulletstorm/killzone 3 & gave me a $40 BB gift card. I also got dead space 2 for $30 and COD BO for $40 and another $40 gift card. The key was showing them a response from BB Corp concerning price matching TRU gift card specifically. I've provide the link below highlight the paragraph response from Allan. The manager didn't want to loose a sale close to $250.

Hang on , did you mean you paid $120+tax total for bullestorm and killzone 3 then they gave you a $40 bb gift card on top which comes out to about $40+tax per game. Your post says that you paid $80+tax total for BS&KZ3 and then got a $40 gift card on top, making each game come out to $20+tax!

If you actually paid $150+tax for BS,KZ3,DS2 and COD:BO and got 2 $40 gift cards on top, you sir are a freaking magician and I am in complete awe of your CAG skills...

since it's not in their ad or on the website you need a picture of the offer I detail. Taped on the glass in front of the items that correspond with the specific deal TRU has these offers use your phone to get a pic & if need be make sure they have the items in stock b/c some BB's will refuse for deal if TRU is sold out.

No, they chared him $40 each for BS and KZ3 and he "purchased" a $40 gift card for $40.

$40 + $40 + $40 = $120.

Same thing with the other two games basically.

1st remember DS2 was on sale for $50 @ BB & they didn't bump the price back up to $60. Damn don't know how to post pics but I'll simplify as best I can. This was done on two receipts @ the same BB the manager didn't want to discount such large amounts on 1 receipt for fear that I'd return the games and keep the gift cards.

Receipt 1: COD BO $40, DS2 $30 & a $40 gift card $114.18(tax included)
Receipt 2: bulletstorm $40, KZ3 $40 & a $40 gift card $124.78(tax included)
So COD BO, DS2, KZ3, Bulletstorm & $80 in gift cards for $238.96. All the games for $158.96. I already have DS2 and COD BO so these are just trade in fodder and if there's a sale on any of the games between now & 4/12 I can still price match them down even further...plus I'll get close to another $15 in reward zone certs in 35 days.

All these points will post just in time for the Socom 4 PS Move/sharpshooter bundle and considering that BB is offer a $10 pre-order bonus if I paid the full $150 for it that would equal another $10 in reward cert for spending $150 on games. Gotta love BB

I try to pass on the best possible deal and BB right now is it at least for B&M kmart is a close second and then amazon/newegg for online. I wish there were more stores but with no circuit city it's kind of blah but if you know a better deal put me on to it?

I'm sorry but buying 2 games and a $40 gift card for $120 is not a deal. Whats the point of buying a gift card instead of just buying the games at full price? It costs the same in the end.

I'll admit I was wrong about this. I was not thinking when I read it and was only thinking about having to buy a gift card. My bad.

What? If he's buying the games for $40 each and then the gift card for $40, then he has a $40 credit to use on future purchases. It would be the same as Amazon offering the two games for full price ($60 each) with a $20 preorder credit for each one ($40 in preorder credits). Why isn't that a deal, especially if you shop at BB often or buy other sale items there?

I see the point now. I was seeing it from a different view because at BB you are buying a gift card but at Amazon its a bonus. Its the same in end but seems different to me.

I have had the worst lucking PM gift card deals at BB so I wouldn't want to deal with the hassle. But thats just me

Who else had KZ3 and Bulletstorm for $40 on release? I guess it also comes down to would you rather have $80 in TRU gift cards or BB? I personally get more outta BB plus I'm trying to retain my silver status @ BB. But hey if it's not a deal to you sorry I'm just tryin to help any other CAG. If you look at the thread for last weeks TRU's there were a ton on ppl asking if anybody had success price matching the gift card offer @ BB.

Try using the printout from the link, several CAG's PM'd after using this strategy & were able to get the deal they wanted. All those gift card deals on PS3/X360 seemed to generate alot of ?'s I mean I'd rather have the upfront savings on a system instead of the gift card same with the games TRU is notorious with the $10-$40 gift card offers on games.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. I didn't consider the rewardzone points either but that's a nice bonus for sure. This is not a bad deal at all and can be an even better deal if you can convert the GC to cash somehow since you saved a little bit on paying tax as well because the tax is applied to $40 vs $60. It's not much but hey every little bit helps especially for us CAGs.

A little off topic but slightly related but does anybody have a fairly safe way to convert GCs into cash other than selling them to your friends who are about to buy stuff at BB anyway?

2:All PSP/PS2 games are B1G1 50% off with their clearance games this is better than the BB current PSP deal


B1G1 50% off is at best 25% off of each for the same priced game.
Best Buy is B2G1 free on $10 games, which at best is 33% off of each game.

Selection aside, if you were to purchase two $10 PSP games at TRU, they'd be $7.50 each. If you were to purchase three $10 PSP games at BB, they'd be ~$6.67 each.

Not sure if you meant "better" as in more options or "better" as in saving more, though.

Thanks for posting the TRU deals! :)

Depending on what your TRU has on clearance I saw alot of the $10 games @ BB for $5-7, it depends on how many the store has left. The yellow stickers my local TRU uses has handwritten clearance prices along with standard clearance stickers.

Must be a huge overstock plus Wii sales have declined. The would have better luck making a custom TRU bundle instead w/like pick 3 select games for ___price then it'll sell out.
