I got mine today too.
My postmaster even joked this can't be your package it's not banged up enough. I've had problems lately with banged up packages lately...

Anyone know what Rogers return policy is on used games ? I bought LA Noire a few weeks ago but i don't really want it anymore.

Their policy sucks. They sold me a defective used game and they didn't have a second copy for exchange but they refused to give me a refund. They insisted on me exchanging it for another game. I tried to reason with the guy in charge and they FINALLY agreed to give me a gift card with credit for the purchase. No refund, still got $21 credit there. I was not pleased. They told me it's their policy to not give refunds on used items.

If anyone knows where I can buy this in Canada (even better if you can tell me for Ottawa) I would be really appreciative.

At the moment FS has a 320G PS3 bundle for $250 with God of War III, Uncharted 3 & Metal Gear Solid 4.

I was going to wait until boxing day to pick up a PS3 but I'm just wondering if this sale will be as good as they get before Boxing day or should I wait? I just have a couple gift cards I've never got around to using that I was thinking about using to purchase a PS3. Thanks for any heads up.

PS. Another question I had to go with this is the PS3 still worth picking up? The console was released in 2006 and I don't really want to pick one up if it's just going to be replaced within the next year.
PPS. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post this in.

Sweet, thanks! This game sounds interesting, I hope that it has co-op multiplayer.

Doesn't look like a multiplayer kind of game to me, but they did it with Uncharted so who knows.

Rewardzone certificates can only be applied to the pre-tax cost of an item, right? I want something that costs $17.99 and got a $20 cert. Pretty sure I can't do it without losing the last $2 of my $20 value. :(

I'm pretty sure it's post-tax. At least that's how it's always how they scan mine in.

Awesome! Thanks!

I was at BB looking for it this weekend and they didn't have any. When I couldn't pull it up on their site, I assumed neither them or FS was carrying it.

Last time I was there it was pre-tax. So for a 17.99 item you'd need to get something else to bump it to $20, at least that is what I was told.

I believe that Sears has everything 50% off but I've read that they have a horrible selection of games (much like Costco, I'd assume). The person that went there said that they saw only a few games. Uncharted 3 was one of them (in that person's region of course). So it is possible that they might have it. I'd suggest that you check the your store before boxing day.

What happens if you buy something with Best Buy rewardzone certificates and then want to return it for a refund? I think I read somewhere that they give you cash, anyone know?

I learned today that you can't use rewardzone certificates on an item valued at less than the certificates. I was trying to buy something for $29.97 pre-tax and they wouldn't allow me to use my $30 coupon. Had to add a plastic bag for 5 cents for it to go through.

Has anyone seen or heard anything from HMV for Boxing day? They usually had good game deals but this year I haven't seen any ads or flyers.

Crap, you can buy bags? I had to purchase a chocolate bar last time. :/
On your other question, you can actually return any purchase done with rewardzone certificates and get a giftcard in return for the same amount. ;)

Some stores charge for bags, some don't. The only stores that I shop at that charges for bags are RCSS.

Virtually every store in Toronto charges for plastic bags. It's an environmental thing to get people to use reusable bags.

Ford's putting an end to that. A lot of stores went back to the old habit of bagging things for me and "Would you like the receipt in the bag?"

I thought all the Sears stores were closing down? Or is that just in the US?

Edit: Nm, just 120 stores in the US. None in Canada.

TORONTO, Dec 28 (Reuters) - Sears Canada's stock dropped on Wednesday after parent company Sears Holdings Corp said it would close as many as 120 Kmart and Sears stores in the United States.
A spokesman for Sears Canada said the company would not close any outlets in Canada. Shares were down 7.1 percent at C$10.74 in early trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Well Sears pulled kind of a scumbag move to get out of issuing non-expiring gift cards. I returned a Xmas gift which I had the receipt for but didn't have the credit card it was purchased with. Instead of giving me a gift card for the value of the gift they gave me a special card with store credit on it that expires in one year. They gave it a different name than a gift card so they could put the expiration on it, that's pretty shady. If the item was paid for and returned you shouldn't be given expiring credit.
