Got Pokemon Black today. Worked out nicely because I needed a new CD rack to hold my CD's and best buy had one cheap as well. :D

Went and grabbed pokemon white (with kit) and kingdom hearts recoded. Saw a sign for 75% off all guides if buying with the game it's for so I grabbed the pokemon collectors guide (retail $30) and they manually adjusted it. So everything all together cost me $65 after taxes

Picked up Pokemon Black with a gift card. The Toys R Us near me didn't have another DS game that I wanted, and they were out of those little stylus packs. I went to Best Buy to pick up some seasons of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and picked up Pokemon too. It seems a bit much that they have gift cards in those CD cases now.

Did anyone else pass on the kits so that children could get them? Not trying to judge but I would think a ki would enjoy them a lot more than many of us here.


This. Im usually a fan of swag, but there were so many little kids behind me, I felt they would actually use the kits and it would make their day. I was just happy to get both my games at B1G1 50%.

Certainly would have in a 'last kits, kids behind me' situation, but 4 of the 5 customers that morning were guys my age. No sympathy there. ;)

YMMV but chances are better if the deal is in the physical ad and not just on the blog.

Just picked up Pokemon Black and White from Best Buy. Got 500 reward zone points ($10) for pre-ordering each pokemon game. Got a $5 gift card for buying each game. And here's the best part, got them to price match the toys'r'us buy one DS game get one 50% off. Basically I spent $55 and got both pokemon games and $30 in gift certificates.

Got White (no legendary kit, but I didn't care) and picked up WarioWare: DIY for 50% off. I realized after I got home that I could have bought WW: DIY new on Amazon for the same price at $15. Will I encounter an issue if I go back to that store tomorrow and exchange it for another game?

You won't have to wait a month for the bonus points to appear, only for them to become available. Normally, points for purchases will appear (in a pending status) around 3-5 days after your purchase. I would say wait til the end of the week, and if you don't see anything, give CS a call.

Its in the physical ad. I got the PS3 with $50 gc the last time BB had the deal. I'm wondering about the price match also. I figure its a long shot, but one that's probably worth taking. At the very least, I should get $10 off the game since the Kmart deal is valued at $60 and the $50 gift card, is well, $50. You never know though.

I put the odds of getting it price matched at 10%. If I get a knowledgeable CSR with autority to do it on their own, it might, but for a $60 price match, its likely a manager override and no deal.

Tuesday is real busy, not sure if I'll make it up by then, but Wednesday for sure.

Did they scan it and the register rejected it or did they read the restrictions first and turn you away? Just wondering if the register accepts or rejects it automatically since I got that same coupon in the mail and I'm planning on trying it on Black/White later today.


Yes, the guys all know me there and let me scan it. Occassionally in the past the coupons still work regardless of the fine print, but they must have fixed their system because the register said it was below value (even after adding a Pepsi to make sure I was actually over $50).

I did. When I got to the store the electronics area was pretty packed and while I saw quite a few kits up there I'm sure they would have ran out of them quickly once the after church/late day crowd hit. Besides I have no use for anything in the kit so it would have just been clutter anyway. I didn't even pick up any of those free wall cling/sticker things for the same reason.

Got white for me and black for my brother and the game is excellent. So nice knowing that when I go through tall grass there won't be a rattata annoying me or zubats in cave like they've been doing since 1998. Definitely the revamp I've been waiting for. As great as Ruby/Sapphire, Diamond/Pearl were they still held on too much to the original formula and pacing of things to really feel like "new" games.

Actually I did the opposite... I was waiting in line and saw that there were only 2 kits left. There was a kid about 12 in front of me, so I kind pull up beside him to make it look like I was his Dad. It worked, the guy behind the counter asked if he could help me. I asked for Pokemon White & Black, got the last two kits. The kid then went to the next cashier and got Black and was told they were out of kits. I looked at him and smiled and said "you snooze, you lose". I thought he was going to cry, the big baby.

I was shot down at Best Buy today. Tried to price match TRU's BOGO and get Best Buy's $5 gift cards for Pokemon Black and White, but they pointed me to their policy wall that shows "bundled games" are not a part of their price match policy. Then they told me it wouldn't have worked anyway because "free items" such as the gift cards would become invalid after the price match. Wanted to use my $15 rewards money, but I guess I'll have to go elsewhere for Pokemon. I think I'll go with Amazon's $10 credit unless someone else have a better deal.
