Looks like the pattern that will continue thru to yrs end will be b2g1, b2g1, 50% trade in, b2g1, 50% trade in, 50% trade in, b2g1 & so on. These are at stores near BestBuys but the way GS has their districts it doesn't always make sense a store that's closer to a BB may not get it & one 1-3 miles further will. Only way to know is call but once you know the store(s) these promo should be consistant.

I heard the same thing from my Gamestop rep on Sunday. He said they'd be doing it every weekend the rest of the year. However, I want to stress that he isn't the manager, so I don't know if that can be considered confirmation or not.

9/21 is Friday that was date given to me from the same store that was doing the b2g1 lat week. I don't think he'd BS me considering the number of games he saw on my receipts which need to be return/rebought & he's the one working next time I'm coming in.

It started on Friday last week as well.

Yes. YMMV (shouldn't, but...) The games can be long gone. All they need is the receipt(s). Again YMMV depending on the store/manager/employee.

I was told the exact same thing this past weekend. I found the part she said about it being "every weekend till the end of the year" questionable, but I guess not.

Why must these always be on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?! I work 12 hour shifts on those days.

Does Gamestop have something against Monday through Thursday?

same rep who leaked this to me let me know that b2g1 will be coming again in 2 weeks looks like same stores but in between they will have 50% TIV to compete with BB. He said this pattern of sales will continue for weeks maybe?

Looks like the 100% has had an affect on them to many people with BB credit & they're using it on games that get $20 credits vs GS DLC.

BB must be making a decent impact on GS. It'll be nice if they'll start doing this at every store so I wouldn't have to drive 20-30 minutes across town,especially since I have one 5 minutes away from me.

They are affecting GS business this is a "test" to see if it has a positive result for GS. Basically, people are getting so much BB credit that there's no need to purchase @ GS with credit. Add in that BB gives far more than the 30% trade in deals, they offer redit vs DLC, the $15 GCU comes with a mag full of coupons & 30-60 price protection and GS becomes very limited. If BB could get their system together & the DLC they do have they'd take over completely.

Overall, this is a great thing for shoppers since competition is what's needed that's why it doesn't make sense for people to want more stores to go under.

Seriously? A B2G1 and a 50% TiB? Awesome! It's pretty far off, but I'm patient and excited for this, especially since I missed out on the one this past weekend.:bouncy:

Hmm.. I wonder if GS will be able to keep up with Best Buy. They'd better be EXTRA prepared if BB does like last fall! GS has had some decent sales, to me, this year.

remember both deals won't happen in the same weekend 50% starts this Fri 9/28 & again on 10/12.

The only thing is they're stuck in their ways & refuse to understand that GS exclusive DLC that may show up in a GOTY/complete edition isn't good enuf to compete with $20 credit. If BB can get the instant RZ point system up & running they'll have the gaming world in the palm of their hands.
