I always suggest putting in a filler game, then returning it later.

Avoids the $0.00 transactions that raise red flags. :)


A return leaving the transaction at $0.00 or -$0.01 would probably flag too.

My local Best Buy had pleanty of copies but when I went to the register they denied me and I only had one copy! I got real mad, demanded to see a manager, and cussed the female cashier out. I was mad having to stand in line for 20 minutes for this. The customer Service at BB has gotten terrible lately. Wish Circuit City would open back up.

I got there today about 3PM central time.

As far as these deals go I have a live and let live atititude but the irony in this post is palpable

This will probably be my most successful thread on cags ever.

I scored 3 copies. 1 for me, 1 for my nephew, and 1 for my dog to shit on.

Even with Wolfenstein being on the same coupon why would that deal die?


Because the entire coupon says 20 dollars off regular price. Both games are on sale. Once they caught the zeros everywhere they won't do Wolf either. So there's one deal ruined by this already. Hmm

Indeed, there is no need to yell at employees. There were many CAG's who didn't end up getting anything either. No one should complain if they say no since it says, "Not valid on sale priced items" on the coupon.

The coupon expires today, I think the Best Buys around here are already closed for the day. And i've yet to see the outcry of people not able to get Wolfenstein for 20 bucks.

Hey whatever though, keep arguing a very moot point.

So for those of use who didn't have any intention of trading or flipping have got shafted based on the sloppy CAG or the just plain aholes that don't care.


I miss the days when CAG was about finding cheap games to play and not about making money.

Gone are the old CAG/VGtalk days, when people would thread lightly/respectfully on deals like this. I remember when threads like this were filled with people saying they picked up one copy (to play) so that there would be some left for other CAGs and/or not to raise flags. Now it is just pages of people bragging how they got 20 copies without buying even a candy bar and figuring out ways to make money.

I miss the days when CAG was about finding cheap games to play and not about making money.


Me too my friend. Finally someone that's been around as long as I and knows what I speak of. I remember those days as well and there were considerably more deals around back then. They may have been harder to find but there definately more deals.

I was finally going to get Wolf as I'd been waiting for the 20 point and then I figured FTF looked mediocre and I might get a few hours out of it. I would have gladly paid 5 for it actually.

I bet if it was 5 that 90 percent of these people wouldn't have even bothered. It's just plain greed.

I'm pretty sure we as CAG didn't kill this deal..we were just doing our parts, and they got on. A game of cat and mouse if you will. When Let's Tap hits (and it will) we just gotta make sure we jump on it. I think it's great that we support each other and were able to keep a tight lid on this, but as one poster said, his kids will have a good x-mas. how do we know that guy didn't lose his job or something? All he had to do was spend gas money out of pocket to do something we were all doing anyways.

For all week if you didn't plan on getting to your store bright an early, you were tempting fate. Everyone knew everyone was going to do this, so I'm sorry if you waited too late in the day, but you had a good 6 hours or so..

To be a devil's advocate, it only affects people who are planning to purchase Wolfenstein after 4pm today, as the coupon expires when Best Buy closes.

You can live in the past if you want to, but the fact is there are tons of deals sites out there and especially when there is advance notice of a deal like this, it's going to get slammed. There is no such thing as a "community" anymore when it comes to things like this, act fast or miss out. Sounds like you're bitter because you missed out.

I was going to buy many copies but I wanted to leave some for other people. Still the deal doesn't compare to the Van Halen flip. I made over A THOUSAND dollars on this deal.

Actually I would say that is the best flip in video game history.

And when they screwed up this time it took like 6 hours to catch on because all the new CAG can't keep it in their pants and use a deal correctly.

I know this deal was one day but most of the time these deals run for a week or so and they never catch it. They're getting better guys and you need to adjust your CAG tactics and step your game up.

OR just keep jumping on me because it makes you feel better apparantly?

You're getting jumped on because you're trying to play the role of white knight with conjecture, speculation, and your holier-than-thou attitude. No one gives a fat Fuck what you think on your moral high-horse. You have yet to post anything that was a fact or even with any sort of backing.
There are no rules except what was printed on the coupon, so using the deal 'correctly' is subject to that disclaimer, and the cashiers discretion. Anything else is simply your opinion.

BTW, a 5 item transaction of, say, $5 that includes game software is going to be looked at just as a $0 transaction containing 4 pieces of software would be, and I can say that having worked in retail management. There was nothing on the coupon that stated that it must be used in conjunction with another purchase.

The fact here is that nothing was wrong with getting in on this deal, as this wasn't a situation where it was some modified coupon.

Because the entire coupon says 20 dollars off regular price. Both games are on sale. Once they caught the zeros everywhere they won't do Wolf either. So there's one deal ruined by this already. Hmm


More speculation. Give it a rest dude, you've got no idea what you're talking about.

I hoarded the F out of them. I'll admit it, and be unashamed. 2 stores, 6 copies at each store. 1/3 are for friends and family. 1/3 flipped to blockbuster, which I then flipped those games to GS for nice return on my time. The rest I donated to Toys For Tots.

You can call me a dirty hoarder all you want, but I feel pretty good about what I accomplished today, and all because a bad game can't sell until it's free.

Dude, it's Fairy Tale Fights. F-A-I-R-Y T-A-L-E F-I-G-H-T-S

These good deals like this, nine times out of ten are over crap games that no one really wants and are only considered good deals to be jumped on BECAUSE they can be flipped and gotten in large quantities (or in my case and a few others, cheap ass christmas gifts).

This is not the first deal nor the last so people, just stop. Fairy Tale Fights.

IDK man, I would have probably pushed this lady to the ground if she pulled that shit with me. I mean, you set that game on the shelf to help her and that's what she does? Maybe she did it inadvertantly, I would have definitely said something to her then tried to rip it out of her hands. Then if she made a scene, I would have stomped on her foot w/ my size 12 and ran the hell out of there

It's not living in the past. It's stating that things were better in the past. More deals. IF people would heed the advice instead of talking shit to me then we may be better off.

How hard is it to figure out that a 0.00 transaction is not a good thing???? A business isn't going to allow this for long if at all?

I missed out yeah, but I'd rather pay full price for all my stuff here on out than act like half of these people that abuse things like this.

I just got the Up & Monsters Inc deal a month ago and walked out with both Blu Rays for 0.98. I got one copy of each and also bought two other Blu's for a total of about 40. Nothing about that transaction sends flags up. It just took me watching here and researching coupons and I got a great deal.

Be willing to pay a little for stuff. It's Cheap Ass Gamer not Free Ass Gamer.

I would have been a complete asshole, followed her to the cash register, and told the employee that it shouldn't be free. Screwing BBY is questionable, but screwing over fellow consumers is just unacceptable, especially considering she is probably a member of SD, CAG, or FW and got the information from another source.

Personally, I drove past Best Buy thinking I would go and pick up a few CDs for Christmas presents. The section that is usually empty was full of cars and there was a line of cars trying to get in (and that was the back entrance). I came back home, saw the deal, but had no ambition to go back for the hassle.

Y'know, all of us who hoarded this deal should be forced to beat Fairytale Fights as penance. Before trading my last copy, I cracked it open and played 2 hours- fucking monotonous stupidity.
