Thanks to the CAG Price Tracker/email alert for this one...

Kirby's Epic Yarn *New* for $29.99 at Gamestop.com - use code VSHIP for free basic shipping. Also available *used* for $24.99.

http://www.gamestop....epic-yarn/78161

It is very hard to find discounted high profile Nintendo releases so I jumped on a new copy.

Saw this last night. Looking to bundle it with Tatsunoko and Golden Sun I think. A decent trio.

Really fun game, if mostly simple. The transformations - aside from the train - are totally sweet.

All credit to ackbar7 for this tip:

You can buy 3 Epic Yarns @ Gamestop for ~$50 with the B2G1 sale right now and trade in 2 of them for $25 each ($50 total credit) and keep the third at virtually no cost to you. I'm out a mere $1.80 on the deal & I convert $50 of Gamestop credit into $50 of much more usable Amazon credit. Winning!

Debating if I want to bite or not. I know the Kirby games always felt pretty easy to me and this looked fairly easy as well when watching my sister play it.

Did your trade-ins go through? I heard amazon is really picky about their game trade-ins, and won't accept games without manuals or cover art or if they are in bad condition, and it's kind of hard to find used games at gamespot that are in mint condition

Considering I just ordered today I can't say they went through. I've ordered plenty from Gamestop's website in the past and rarely get a disc only. Kirby is still pretty new (It came out in Octoberish last year) so the likelihood of getting incomplete games is minimal. Even if that does happen I have friends that are store managers at my local Gamestops that would swap out for completes anyway. If anything I'm concerned they won't arrive in time to ship out to Amazon.

I wish Amazon would match the price because I wouldn't mind picking up this and Sonic Colors for $50 total.

Maybe... but Nintendo first party games hold their value for a loooong time.

I was able to get almost all of the first party titles close to $20 at one point. It can and will happen, but it will be brief. :)

I was in a GS today and saw it on a shelf marked $29.99. I'm wondering if this is just the new price? I decided to hold off.

So much for Amazon matching. And now Sonic Colors is back up to full price. Boo.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll return my GameStop.com copy in-store and buy from Amazon instead. It'll save me nearly $3 tax, and there are multiple GameStops along my commute so I won't be wasting any gas either.

Your disingenuity aside, there are more than a few people on CAG who carp on those sorts of things, and I was trying to preemptively deter smart-aleck comments. I was just trying to thank default_shepard for his Amazon pricematch alert. I guess I should have left it at that.

Yeah, and your paying 9.75% tax apparently, so...worth it to buy online. Amazon charges tax for NY residents though...its 8.75% I think. Bummer

I really liked this. Only game I've played on my Wii in forever. Oh, and it's great for kids; I'm pretty much using it to train my 4-year-old to play video games!
