Thanks OP. Since over $300 worth of BB gift cards are burning a hole in my wallet (while proudly waving my CAG flag), I held off on the TRU promo and have been looking for any news of Best Buy having a B2G1. Was hoping to score on a few older titles and/or ones that TRU didn't stock. Oh, well...maybe stocking up on some Blu-rays or pulling the trigger on an eReader will stop that hole from getting bigger. :-k

Meh. Three $60 after B2G1 is still $40 a pop. Cheaper yes, but lately it hasn't taken long for prices to drop and less time for better sales. A few weeks from now we'll see as low as $30 on Amazon or even K-mart. Not to mention Black Friday is right around the corner. I don't think I can even finish one game by the time that happens.

Almost Best Buy.... Okay, not really.

Free $15 Gift Card with purchase of both the Rock Band 3 keyboard and Rock Band 3 for XBOX 360
(yes the ad specifically says 360 only)


This would be nice if it applied to the bundle, but I bet it won't.

Very odd that B2G1 would ONLY apply to new releases. You'd think that new releases would be the only ones excluded.

I wouldn't be too surprised if it turns out that everything works.

Damn it... this is disappointing. There are quite a few new games out (or coming out) that I want. Unfortunately none of them are included in this deal. If only Toys R Us would have had a decent selection, I wouldn't have decided to hold out for this deal. Guess I'm out of luck now.

For all of those thinking about the Fable 3 CE, amazon does offer a $20 gaming credit on the Fable 3 collectors edition as well, which might work out better for those who really aren't looking for 2 more games to buy.

Hmmm... 3x SW: TFU2: CE :D

$79.99
$79.99
$0.00
Total: $159.98 or $53.32 each

500 RZ Offer = $10 Cert
500 RZ Offer = $10 Cert
500 RZ Offer = $10 Cert
160 RZ Points (150 RZ = $5 Certs + 10 RZ Points)
Total: $35 RZ Certs




You only get the 500 bonus points once. I bought 2 versions of reach on release day and was only given the 500 for 1 of them. I did get the $20 gift card for each one though. I purchased the 2 in seperate purchases though to get the second GC.

Okay this is semi-OT but how the heck do RZ bonus points work? I pre-ordered Reach a week before launch, bought it, and both of those have cleared processing without me getting any bonus points aside from the natural growth for spending. Am I missing something?

i was just calculating where to buy halo reach, fallout nv and fable 3 thinking when i first saw this post that it was B2G1 on all games.

That answers that question. Kmart gets my business after all.

I have $71 in Gift Cards and RZ certs combined. As a CAG, do you see the price that I would pay as $40 per game and then that I am using my cift cards and coupons or would you just see it as $18 per game? I know in the end it doesn't matter but I was wondering how ppl see giftcards and reward certs. As an example, I rarely feel as though I get a deal if I use a giftcard on a MSRP game. Maybe it's just that I have been used to the deals here that I never expect to pay MSRP.

Did you join the gamers club in reward zone? If not, that could be the problem. If you're in it already, call their customer service number or drop them an e-mail, I'm pretty sure they'd look into it and give you the bonus.

We, at least I do, see it as $40/game. Especially because you could use those GC's and RZ certs, on other games or items.

I just looked at my Reward Zone account and realized I got stiffed on my Halo Reach purchase. They took the $20 gift card off my total spent, so they only gave me $35 towards my total (plus $5 for my pre-order).

so I decided to see what I could do with it and I got to the end but there's no way I can finish him off.

Yea they did that for me but when I used the gift card on something else I got points for that. They just do it this way so you don't get an extra 20$ for the free gift card.

The Best Buy 3-for-2 deal sucks, but oh well. Good thing I didn't pass on the TRU sale.

Why does everyone want NBA 2K11? Is this a really desired game or is there something else that deals with it? Like gift card or some special offer?


I'm not getting another NBA game until David Stern dies. :D

But seriously, it's supposed to be the greatest NBA game yet. But NHL 11 is supposed to be the best NHL game yet and no one seems that interested in it, at least here anyway.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Except you're not supposed to receive points for using a gift card. I used mine and no purchase showed up.

if they add rock band 3 to b2g1, ill cancel my fable 3 preorder with amazon and pick up

fable 3
force unleashed 2
rock band 3

i'm getting all 3 regardless, but getting one free feels so much better (fable from amazon, the other 2 from kmart)

Too bad the B2G1 isn't on ALL games like the last(glitched) one that they had so I could pick up MOH and a few other recent releases for like $10 worth of copies of Rock Revolution.

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

Strange mix of games on the B2G1 deal. I understand trying to have something for everybody, but it just seems really random.
