Red Steel and Vegas scanned regular price for me today. I didn't really want them, but they were $20 and $18.

Everyone who joins the CAG XBox One Conga Line from now until my 11 referrals are met are entered into a drawing to win a FREE $60 game from me! So get going - the Gamefly referral costs nothing, and others are as low as $1!

Someone correct me if Im wrong, but I think they're suppose to hit the F12 button or something to update the price?

Nothing to see here, move along!

Yeah, just scanning the item(s) will only give you the original price.

Yeah, I hope that's what happened to the previous poster. I'd hate to see the sale end-- it was nice to see GRAW and MUA trickle in. Gives hope some other interesting games will come through.

Same here. Gamestop should make the 50% off bins fixtures in their stores from now on.

I think about getting The Darkness every time I've entered the store for the last few weeks. Great price on it, just not sure when I'd find time to play it.

I picked up MUA on Saturday, so thanks for the heads up.

I went into my local store and asked for a copy, then asked if it was half off. The employee said no, and I asked him to scan it anyway because a friend had told me he got it for that price. He reluctantly did it, but mentioned at least one more time that it was not half off. He scans it and then says, oh they must have added this to the list. He was very apologetic saying, I did not mean to mislead you but I did not think it was half off.

I only mention it, because I think he was sincerely sorry for telling me know (i could tell by the tone of voice) and it was nice to talk to a GS employee that was not a holier than thou douchebag.

He was still a holier than thou douchebag until he was busted.

Okay good to know. I played through vegas already and didn't particluarly like red steel so it's no big loss. Did someone say scrapland was a 50% title too?

Seriously. It would certainly give me motivation to go in more often, and that is what they want, after all. I know I stop by my local TRU as often as I can, because they have a nice, big clearance bin that they are constantly dumping stuff into. If this 50% bin was always in their stores and always having old crap added to it, I would certainly stop in and check it out whenever I go by.

:-s:-k

Do you even know what the phrase "holier than thou" means? How did this GS employee exhibit an attitude of superior virtue? All he said was that the game was not part of the promotion, and he was wrong. He also apologized. Sometimes, people get a little carried away with their GS bashing. Even the poster who experienced this gave him credit for apologizing.

He said numerous times that it wasn't 50% off, while reluctantly scanning it. Once he realized he was proven wrong by a customer, he changed his tune. That is still a douchebag attitude. Now if he had said he didn't think it was, but said "Let's scan it to see," it would have been a different situation.

So, until he scanned it his attitude was, in fact, holier than thou. The only thing that made him different was he apologized, while other GS employees would have blamed another employee for not pricing it properly, never admitting they were wrong.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Found Madden '08 and Marvel Alliance (not Gold) in the 50% off bin at the local GameStop (near Philly). Between that discount and the Edge Card, grand total for both together was about $13 !!

Whatever you say. Nonetheless, it has nothing to do with acting holier than thou.

I had an employee scan Forza (and I saw him press F12 if that matters) and it was normal price. I didn't see MAU or R6V in the bin either.

Spectrobes appears to be added to the 50% off sale. It's 14.99 used, making it a little under 7.50 after Edge card.
I wish they'd add more DS games-- GS employees, know of any drops? Madden 08 for PS3 was in the bin too.

Whoa whoa call me noob, but if it isn't in the bin but is in the OP and on the shelf, will it ring up half off?

My GS still has the bin out as of today (ok technically yesterday)

The promo should automatically come up for the game as long as the promo is still in effect. It doesnt matter if the employee didnt put it in the bin. If you want to make sure, just mention that you saw that it was part of the 50% off promo list online or something.

I had planned on picking up MUA 360 but I kept putting it off. I remembered Sunday at around 6:45 pm, after seeing it on here, that the deal ended that day. There is only 1 GS in my area that closes at 7pm on Sundays, so I raced down there. I made it into the store at 6:55 pm. I looked in the 360 section and found 3 copies of MUA but they were disc only. :cry:

The funny part is that I had been at 2 other GS earlier that day. #-oI guess I will still pick it up for $6.99 (after coupon and Edge) but the CAG in me regrets not getting it for $3.99. :wall:
