Still have about $10 on gift card as well

Get the PS3 @ BB price matching the Target deal it'll cost $250 plus $5 in rewards certs.

How? Does BB minus the gift card for matching purposes?

hell yeah BB price match will deduct the GC amount make sure u have a copy of their policy printed out or available on ur smartphone & go to CS to make the purchase though I've had to show numerous CS reps their own $hit and they're like "wow we do this" also there's a coupon the will net u a $25 gift card for spending at least $250.

I've had Bestbuy deny the giftcard matching (when Madden 11 had the $25 gift card at ToysRus). They said they didn't price match 'free' which is what the gift card was with purchase. I told them their policy said they did but they said I was wrong. I wound up buying it from ToysRus and called Bestbuy Silver help line and asked if they could explain why I was denied when their policy appear to me to show they should have matched. The guy said I was correct and sent me the giftcard even though I didn't buy it from Bestbuy.

The point is (after all that) even though you will be right, doesn't mean the employee will recognize that you are right and you'll get it matched. I've had terrible luck with BB customer service instore, but never a problem on the phone when I call and they make it right.

I wish the prices for the Best Buy games were better. Even with the Buy one, get one half off deal, you can get a better price at Gamestop

Did u physically show them their policy? I had a similar problem when I bought Blur and TRU was offering a $40!!! GC. Dorothy a BB rep. contacted me thru the BB forums page done deal. No matter what buy the item and get one of their reps. thru the forums page will make it right. I stick by BB b/c their policies and the best for me plus I get reg. RZ points, gamers points plus the xtra points for being a RZ silver member.

Went to Best Buy, they had jack shit for $19.99. The only passable game that I would of got for $19.99 was eternal sonata but I could not even find a 2nd game to go with it that was not shovelware. I looked at the PSP, Wii, DS and PS3 and all of those sucked. Oh well, it only cost me 15 mins, nothing lost.

What do you mean by Bestbuy forums page? I should probably learn about that.

I didn't have a print out of their policy but I knew it because I read it beforehand. I kept asking the lady if she could explain or get someone to explain why it didn't qualify and she said she couldn't help me because it didn't qualify and asked if I still wanted it. At one point I said, you realize I can just go across the street to ToysRus and get this........is that what you want me to do? She replied with something about the price at Bestbuy and asked if I wanted it. I was more ticked that she never explained why it didn't qualify or get someone for me would explain it because it seemed to fit (and apparently did). THe guy on the phone made it all right later on. I like best buy, I don't always have the best success with their in store people (when I price matched Target buy 2 get 1 free............ I did it 2 seperate days with the same manager both days. The first time, no problem, took 30 seconds or less. The second time, he looked over the ad, took and it left for a while, came back, looked it over again, called someone else to look it over...eventually matched it, but I wanted to say "YOU MATCHED THIS YESTERDAY WITHOUT ISSUE... DON"T YOU REMEMBER?".

I always go to best buy......reward zone bonus is worth the hassle, plus when they screw it up in store, you usually get a little more when they make it right over the phone for your hassle.

PPl in line behind me ask ?'s when they see all the $hit I buy and then see the total lol.

I got Dance Central, and Kinect Sports. When I got home and entered the 240MS points card it took me from 1400 to 2600. I was shocked. :shock:

This happened to me as well when I got it a couple weeks ago. It's definitely a glitch. It says that you've redeemed a "240 point" code, but it adds 1200 points to your account. It definitely sweetens the deal!

I picked up Mario Sports Mix at TRU. They did not have any kid size shirts. Also, I picked up EA Sports Active 2.0 for $19.99. Which I may return and re-buy with the $10 gc that came with MSM.

I gave it a shot but the double stack at TRU didn't work. Tried Just Dance and Just Dance 2 and only 1 game came up 50%. Also, if you try to stack one of the eligible Wii games with Mario Sports Mix, you'll get 50% off Mario Sports Mix but the gift card promo is eliminated (although I still got a free Mario shirt). Looks like the TRU glitches are pretty much getting closed up now.

hey if you get 1/2 off mario sports mix ($25 off) isnt that way better than the $10GC that you are giving up??

It is, assuming I was getting Michael Jackson with Mario Sports Mix. But I was hoping I'd get the $10 GC included as well. So that glitch was fixed.
