My personal favorite was 5 for $25.


It was 5-$25 with a $10 GC wasn't it. It originally started as 3/$15 or 10/$25. Then they added $5 GCs to both and then a $10 GC to the $25 option.

I had like 12 of those GCs to use for a long time.

Also wasn't this the time when Duke Nukem was $5 at BBY and traded in for $17 at BBV? Then they nerfed the TIV to $2 making the game $5 to buy. In which case TRU had a a TiV of $9 or something like that. Man was that the best flipping I have ever done.

Yes, all of the above. Also the Kinect Adventures fiasco too $2 at gamestop to $15 at blockbuster.. I went a little apeshit on flipping then. I have repented since and don't flip nearly as much anymore.

The current sale is as good a sale as they've ever had, if not better.


I'm sorry but no - limited selection plus very limited locations makes this an average at best BBV sale. It isn't bad in theory, but there wasn't all that much to get in reality. I'd say it was one of the worst but I recognize that a few people are finding some good stuff. For me personally it was one of the worst. During the B1G1 sales of years past I was able to come out of any particular store with 6-12 games, easy (while leaving many other potential purchases behind). It was all I could do to scrape up 1 game at the 1 store I went to this sale (early on too) - and that was just a crappy copy of Madden 12 for Wii to trade in at Gamestop.

I see where IO is coming from because this sale would have been amazing in the prime of Blockbuster. Anyone else remember how many times we got cockblocked with 19.99 prices, hell, even 15.99 prices? And having to match up the damn games to get the full discount... this sale is so much more flexible, but Blockbuster is nearly a husk. NEARLY, since I'm still finding stuff.

I agree, the 50% off $20 or lower titles is a helluva deal! So far I've picked up mass effect 3 x2, Uncharted 3 x2, Killzone 3, batman AC, BF BC1 & Red faction:A

How much did it cost you for Killzone 3 and Red Faction:Armageddon?

Get your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape.

At my BBV, RFA was $9.99, so $5 after the sale, and Killzone 3 was $14.99, so $7.50 after the sale.

How much did it cost you for Killzone 3 and Red Faction:Armageddon?

I'd like to know when this sale ends as well. I'm not going back home until January 1 and was hoping to check the local BBV for any games.

If someone could verify, that would be GREAT. Also, is the giftcard deal dead as well?

Here's hoping it is still going on. :)

Well, I wasn't really referring to what one person may find at a particular store. I was just speaking to the sale (50% off $19.99 and under) itself. Fry's could have a 90% off everything in their store sale and CAGs would be calling it the sale of the year, but it would be a terrible sale for me since I wouldn't be able to participate.

Yes, this is exactly what I paid for them.

How'd you manage Super Mario Galaxy 2 for $12.50? I thought only items $19.99 and lower were eligible for half off.

You're right the lady messed up. The code wouldn't work on the computers there and she just gave me half off the entire purchase and not B1G1 50% off... I purchased so much there though I didn't even noticed til I got home.

My Blockbuster, that usually doesn't have but a few overpriced games for sale, had 2 bins with about 100 games in each. The guy working there said they had just received a shipment of games recently. I passed on most because of lack of money but I did get Killzone 3 for $7.50 and Lego Pirates of Carribean for $5.

Sadly just found out that the store I planned on going to is closing down. Had my brother call to inquire about when the promo ends. They said that since they are closing, they are not doing any promotions. Is that normal? Kind of disappointed, because google shows them having good stock of games that I would buy.

Still might swing by to see what they have and what percentage they are giving off. I am sure it will be peanuts.
