So it will be 30 bucks for MK (if you still have a coupon) again? That seems odd, but cool, I guess!

Does Amazon ever match TRU prices? I'd love to get DOAD for $30 delivered to my office rather than taking a trek to a TRU... I'm shocked at the day one price though. Good shit TRU.

That would be quite awesome, 15$ worth of Amazon Credit and nothing to use it on.

No fun. I've got one of those for epic mickey still sitting on my desk and it says 6/25, so I assumed that all of those coupons were good until 6/25. Thanks for the heads up though!

Yeah I'm still holding onto the Epic Mickey coupons too... but unfortunately I can confirm that the MK coupon has expired because I just threw a bunch out when I was going through my receipts and coupons earlier today. I'm not sure about the Homefront coupon that may or may not be expired

$70 yep
Per policy no it's "bundling" so YMMV...I got it twice before w/COD+dead space 2 & bulletstorm+KZ3. It's all about "selling" the manager not to lose a large sale that's how I got it.
This would've been a great flip if fear 3 was actually releasing next week, I already have MK & I think the TIV at BB is $30

I didn't even do it at my local BB I went to the one in King of Prussia b/c the TRU is SO close to BB(literally right around the corner). I took pics confirming the items were in stock, had a copy of the BB forums post with their Corp rep. explaining that not only they do pm gc offers but he says how to do it, I had the ad & I told them point blank I'd rather give BB the $. I'm like I'm a RZ silver/gamers club member & having $100 in TRU gc wouldn't do much for me since I don't buy action figures or diapers all 4 CS reps laughed and agreed then worked out the deal. Didn't hurt that it was a over $150 either manager didn't want to lose the sale.

Plus, once you start doing it alot CS gets use to you just make sure they all know you'll always have proof of the sale & after a while they just know pm only question is what store.

I'm going to attempt this one day when the deals are better. Enuf you rock. I wanted to price match Alice when it comes out but I'm not sure what best buy is going to do with it. Amazon/TRU are the cheapest but best buy has nothing come with it, even the pre-order 500 points isn't there. Hoping to for a good Hunted deal though.

about 2 months ago, a reg store rep working in the game dept. told me that BB woulb be getting really agressive w/gaming deals & then comes all these $10-$20 gc offer along with the $10 pre-order. Also, all these unadvertised deals that have been matching other stores sales including amazon came about. He also spoke about them adding dedicated gaming reps & trade in counters sorta like a GS inside BB. Once these changes are made the deals are really gonna ramp up b/c the pay/bonus structure for the gaming reps will work in favor of the customer to generate more sales.

Hunted has the $10 pre-order bonus it's on the 1st page of the RZ site in the gamers section. After E3 there's gonna be a "dead" gaming period for huge AAA titles which should offer alot of "combo" deals that will help to move less popular titles.

I just think everyone is a little jealous and envious of all the success you have getting PM's; especially atypical PM's that involve GC's or coupons and bundles.

I understand you put a lot of legwork in and took the time to get familar with the reps at your store and at the BB Forums; but honestly I feel like if I make a big commotion at my store then I'm going to have a bullseye on my back. I spend a lot of money on games there and if it is a super hot deal I buy to resell or flip elsewhere. That is against BB's T&C. You can not be a RZ member and be a reseller. Saving an extra $5 to $10 isn't worth me having my account red flagged. Also, I only have one Best Buy in my market, the next closest is over 100 miles.

I am fairly positive that if I started bringing each game, system, accessory etc back sometime during the 45 day window to get a price guarantee or a return/rebuy or a price match to another retailer I'm going to get myself banned from that store.
