Wonder how a $20 off @Gamer coupon works with a game that's listed as $20.

I didn't want a "free" game, because nothing in a retail store is free.

But I was hoping I could get $10-15 back

Yeah and it pretty much makes the coupon worthless since they just put it on sale for the price it would have cost with the coupon. I would expect NFS:Most Wanted to get a $25 sale on May 8th.

When it comes to Best Buy, there is such a thing as free. I never had a single problem using a Gamerzone coupon to get an item for nothing out of pocket.

Hell there was even a price mistake about a year ago where you could order a $50 webcam for $0 with instore pickup. Cashier didn't even look twice when the receipt said $0.

Man...my Best Buy wont even let me use coupons when the game is on sale. They flip out about how it's either one or the other. They wont even price match other stores. The only way I can get things cheaper is to order it online and then call customer service...which usually works after I get the 5 or 6 transfers around because they don't wanna send me to the department that deals with that..if I don't get cut off before I reach them.

That's how the reward zone and @gamer coupons have always worked. It's a month early preview of their upcoming sales.

Sometimes we've been lucky and the coupons end up overlapping into the actual sale, and the games end up being free or only a few bucks, but it seems like BB is aware of that problem now.

I think that is more a generalization then a hard and fast rule. Just because a game or two happen to go on sale after the coupons does not mean it has ALWAYS been a preview of the next month's sales.

Nice timing on this deal. Looks like best buy finally worked out there pricing mishaps with giving away free or close to free games... Bastards.

Is this a good deal on spec ops? Or is it possible for it to get lower?

You can get it lower used from Gamefly and you can also get it free (while having a subscripion of course) to Playstation Plus.

EDIT: Copped the 360 verison of DOOM 3 BFG for $10.00 after that $10 Best Buy Reward Zone Facebook coupon.

I don't think these things are flying off the shelf, so your best bet is to wait for a clearance sale.

Exactly, especially when it has been free for PS+.

The coupons clearly state on the back that they are to be taken from sale prices.

Your store refusing to honor official coupons is likely some sort of violation because the coupons do not say "participating stores only".

Both of those games should be $10 by now. $20 is still way too high.

Yea i got tricked into that GAMER crap when I was buying my Big Game skin GOW guide the other day. After returning it I was stuck with teh gamer cause I didn't know you couldn't cancel it. (and the guy selling it to me didn't know any of the stuff about it either

It's 1 coupon to be used w/in a month B2G1 not all year (>>)

Anyway yea i'm hoping that sometimes they'll have mis-marks for free games.

But at least I can get the Injustice DLC for 3.49 with that 10% coupon and 10 dollar gift certificate

Isnt that Big Game skin the Giraffe looking skin that comes with the season pass? And I dont know if I care to own Spec Ops the line. I was hoping to just borrow or rent it and beat it in a weekend someday. Already have it free on Ps3 but Im pretty much a 360 gamer.
