it requires a flier that has 2 barcodes to scan so this will be ymmv if stores will let you use it. like i suggested just say my cousin or whoever gave me a friends and family flier but i lost it. they will have fliers around its just a matter of if they will accept that excuse. this shouldnt be public knowledge so if u sound like u know what ur talking about they might go for it.

sorry no go as far as scanning it.

Thanks for the heads up. It's a shame we can't get a scan, but if they have some kind of unique code (or address or whatever) that ties it back to you or your specific store, then that makes perfect sense why you can't.

Thanks!

If you're gonna try, you'd better know at least one of the employees names (and hope they aren't working that day).

So does this mean that if you already have a BBV account, you can't take advantage of the discount?

no. the flier has the discount barcodes on them so this can be rung up on any acct.

Someone posted in the Hollywood thread earlier today that they found a used copy of Disgaea 3 (PS3) for $9.99 at their local BB.

Any other reports of this as I haven't picked this game up as of yet ($9.99 is way below my 'magic number' too for this game :D)

That would be an incredible find but I think highly unlikely since I don't think they even carried it for rent (thus no conversions). At least around here they didn't. It would have to be a trade-in I'd think and that would be pretty rare.

I can confirm the fliers are real, but they are not handed out freely at the store. What I mean is that this "Friends and Family" promo is not like a Gap or Banana Republic "F and F" promo...each employee gets a few fliers to give to their real friends and family.

I asked (who I thought to be) a cool BBV employee for one and he said that he didn't have any more....very uncool.

It would cool if someone could post a picture of the flier.

I called my local Blockbuster that's going outta biz and is in the midst of liquidation sales. For some reason the % off on games is stuck at 30% for used AND new.

Apparently, the liquidators believe that since it's Christmas season that suckers will buy up everything for MSRP or close without really thinking.

The last time I was there there was TONS of stuff left, so hopefully they have to start raising the % off SOON.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

I didn't know a sale was coming. I picked up GTA IV (with box/no docs) and Fear 2 (with box/docs) for 9.99. Just picked up Modern Warfare (disc only) for 9.99. Maybe I can return and rebuy. It was only a few days ago.

No returns for cash at Blockbuster and the only way to get a return for credit is if you say the game isn't working. So you're SOL pretty much.

Judging from the lack of posts...

I thought they purged out all original xbox games last year. GT 2002 shows its age considering it had issues from the get go, but JSRF is awesome!

I still see some old Xbox games here and there at BB, usually just bottom feeder titles. They should just mark 'em all down to 99c and be done with it.

Anyway, didn't find any of these magical 30% off fliers at two different BBs. Shrug. Saw a used Xbox 360 Fallout 3 for $19.99, don't know if that's a new reduction or not. Better price than Gamestop anyway, where its still $24.99. But I know everyone on the planet except me found it at the HWV sale for $5 :(

And I did see new games for sale, just AAA titles though like COD MW2, New SMB, Assassin's Creed II etc.

I saw Marvel: UA for PS3 for 9.99 at a local BBV. Seemed like a pretty good price as this is a game that seems to refuse to get really cheap.

Ouch. I got it for .99 a while back at Blockbuster. During a Buy 2 Get 1 sale to boot.

Oh, and Pirates for the 360 dropped to $4.99.

BB with GR is closing (has been closing) in Florence, KY on Turfway Rd right off i75.

The lady told me they werent renewing their lease at that store so the store would be there until early janurary and they get new stuff sent in about everyday from other stores since that one has basically turned into a warehouse sale.

Games are slim pickings but have some periphal stuff and shitload of movies.

For these people getting excited about these Blockbusters closing and having these liquidations, it's excitement wasted....

I had a local Blockbuster that is still in liquidation now 1 month + and its all a sham. They took games from the used bins and marked them back up with the discount applied and DVD's and what not that were used cheap are back up to like $9.99 ..

To me whoever is in charge of liquidating these Blockbusters are worse then the ones who did Circuit City and the whole intention behind these liquidations is to draw the moths to the flame with the "Liquidation" BS.

So go look for yourself and if you actually find something good for cheap awesome but be ready for lots of crap prices.

Yep, when one of the stores was closing around here it coincided with a B1G1 sale. Instead of participating in that, they just had 20% off - so in effect the games cost more than at the regular stores.

It's not like the place is going out of business, -yet-. I can't imagine them marking stuff down to 50-75% off when they could just ship most of it to another store.

Anyway, haven't heard anything about these fliers nor have I gotten one. Just picked up star wars TFU on 360 because employees get an additional 10% for this and I think next week, only christmas bonus I'll be getting =P. 10$, not bad even without any discounts.
