Shortcut beginning at step 4: best buy 50% off guides

I placed an order and it went through fine. Enjoy.

Nice OP! I think I will still roll the dice and hope Amazon gets close to that price in the next 10 days or so. I have enough credit there to get it with nothing out of pocket but $6 is $6 I will be kind of bummed if Amazon stays at 32.50 and I didn't pull the trigger on this but oh well.

A good deal, but it just seems like so much to pay after years of penny guide fun at best buy and game stop .

Oh HELL YES. Thanks OP, placed an order, hopefully it will go through without a hitch.

Personally, I'm taking the "collector's" view on picking this up now... The Fallout 3 GOTY Collector's Edition ended up being a bit hard to find and now fetches a decent price; it's possible this one might do the same. Also, I just love Skyrim.

Nice, great find OP. Was able to cancel my Amazon preorder that was $32.49 and also was able to use some reward zone certificates on this. Also, anyone having trouble getting a second guide with this promotion? It doesn't say anywhere that it is limited to one purchase but I can't get a Bioshock guide to reflect the discounted price.

Try a different web browser; if that doesn't work, try clearing your cache (not sure of the exact process) and see if that fixes it.

Anyone ever order guides from BB.com? When I buy games or movies, they come in bubble mailers. I wouldn't want my guide coming in one of those; it'd be damaged for sure. Amazon is a guarantee that it's packed well.

They just cant be in the same transaction. I got Starcraft CE, last of us CE and Skyrim CE . Just had to do them one at a time.

Edit: the guides ive received so far have come in HUGE boxes. So big the guide bounces around inside, which damaged the corners.

It's over 1000 pages so I am banking it is too heavy for a bubble mailer.

I think a CAG in the BB offers thread posted before SD.

anyway first time I got to use a RZ cert to fully cover a purchase (but it doesn't make it free)!

Boo. I'd be really bothered if the guides got damaged. Damned OCD. Guess I'll just hold out for Amazon.

FYI, you can always go to a local BBY, check their copies of this guide, and exchange your shipped guide with a better-condition guide if you get a damaged one, so long as you have the receipt.

Is this guide an updated version of the first strategy guide that came out close to Skyrim's release, or a whole new deal? I got a hardcover strat guide addiction so I'll probably get it unless its the same thing.

It is a third revision with all dlc content included.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I don't know what Amazon you use, any book from www.Amazon.com, especially a hardcover book, is guarenteed to look like it's lost a bout with Muhhamed Ali by the time it gets to my home.

Of course they will take it back and ship another, but then it looks just as bad, and the process is repeated ad infinium. I learned long ago never to order anything breakable/collectable that isn't a well packaged game or movie from Amazon, and even then I've still had problems.

Hmmm... so the only bonus in the CE guide (other than the fancy cover & ribbon) is the poster?
I'm such a sucker for these things but man, even the $10 extra at half price seems hard to justify
