Is it possible this is in store and you can PM and get the gift card?

You can price match online, just have to call up.

If you do it in store the computer doesn't let you double dip. If you are lucky you might get a Manager to overlook it.

Just sayin', if this is in store, last year I price matched a copy of Paper Mario: stick Story and Super Mario Brothers 2 at a target price when they were also giving 10 bucks off at best buy if you bought a combination of the two. So instead of paying I think it was 40 for both, I ended up paying 30. So it might work, though that was a really busy time.

The games I want I already have. I've price matched online before though.

Edit: You may have better luck if you place the order first and then request a price match on it. That way the CSR won't have to add the promotion to your order.

amazon might be a better option, because gamestop is not on their official list of compeitiors, when its comes to pricematch.

Aaaand all I see that I would possibly want is Far Cry 3 (PMed of course) and nothing to pair it with. Pass.

all those games u listed are the same price at amazon. It is much easier just pricematching amazon, because it is listed as one of the sites on their price matching policy

Back in I beleive, December? They had an almost identical deal, in store it was sorta 50/50 a manager might say one or the other on the pm or the gift card, but sometimes the computer prompted it on it's own etc. But over the phone it's much easier, you can call back if for whatever reason a rep shoots you down, and they are pretty quick on looking up the price for a pm, also you won't have four people in line behind you waiting for 20 minutes shooting dagger's at you.

I used to work there a couple of months ago and if I recall the system still prompts for the issuance of a gift card, even if price matched. With deals like this the register should prompt when going to the tendering screen. I recall buying Hitman Absolution during a sale that involved a ~$15 gift card and price matched it to ToysRUs and the prompt still showing up.

I know back in December I got shot down like 3 time before I got the promo.So your saying calling is the easier/better option than in store

The system lets you double dip on certain things. The price match/override system is separate from bogo/b2g1/gift card promos as the former is manually done and the latter is automated with a prompt. It doesn't allow two automated/prompted promotions to pop up and will pick the best deal of the two if both are present.

Edit: Upon revisiting the store today, it seems the automated process is a tad revamped for this particular gift card promotion in that it issues the gift card while tendering as opposed to right before.

Is it going too far if I try to PM Far Cry 3 for $29.99 and GOW:Judgement for $39.99 and also get the $25 gift card?

I ask because I have like $20 in RZ points :D

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Please let me know how it goes. PM me if you have to.

I'm thinking about trying to PM online and if I get denied just hang up and try a different rep until I get it.

I am going to a store right now and if I get shot down I will probably make a last attempt by calling.

I've never tried PMing over the phone. How do you know you're getting the giftcard if they price adjust it? Does the rep have access to your cart or something and directly changes the price?

Went in earlier today and I can confirm that it does, indeed, allow you to PM the games and still receive the $25 gift card.
