I think someone asked this, but I'm not sure if it was answered. If I return/exchange the other game in the Zelda deal, will I have to pay a difference for Resident Evil next week? If so, is it half the gift card? Thanks.


The difference you will likely have to pay is $10. If you return/exchange the other game you get $30 back for that game and RE will be $40 unless they have another deal next week.

I just tried doing it this at BestBuy, brought the Target ad and was purchasing Zelda + Dead or Alive. The manager said they could only honor one deal, either 50% off the second game or a $25 gc. Obviously I went with the gc. I then turned around, grabbed a black 3DS, and pm the Target ad to get $25 taken off.

So to summarize my BB purchases:
First purchase: $40 (Zelda) + $40 (DoA) + tax = $85 and a $25 gc
Second purchase: $250 (3DS) - $25 (gc from Zelda) - $25 (pm Target 3DS GC) + tax = 214
Total: ~$300


Good to hear that, will do the same thing later. ;)

No. God this is getting complicated. Best Buy has Blazblue in its ad for $25. The first person obviously hadn't seen the ad when he went early sunday and the OP never posted that deal in the first ad thread.


Ah, got it (finally!). It was getting complicated, and I don't even care about BlazBlue. :lol:

:360::ps3: Not in the ad, but ending on Saturday, buy 2 select games for $50 (F3AR, Mortal Kombat, L.A Noire, Brink, Portal 2, Call of Duty Black Ops).



Can anyone tell me if this deal is available for in store or online purchases? I'd rather order the games rather then going to the store and buying them. also when i click on the link above it take me to Toys R Us and then it says "Promotion not fond" so did it end already or what?

Why would the difference be $10? Assuming we are talking about a $40 game in the first place.

At target worked out like this

Black 3DS (249.99) + tax (13.50) = $263.49

Games Zelda (39.99) + Street Fighter (19.99 after 50% promo) + tax (3.60)= 63.58 - $25 gift card for buying the 3ds= Total 38.58

So $263.49 + $38.58 = 302.07 including all taxes and promos not bad at all considering if i bought it on amazon it would be 249.99+ 39.99 + 39.99 no gift cards for a total of $329.97 and i would have to wait for it to be shipped so if you want the cd its a great deal if you dont got the system already because you can have it today for cheaper than amazon and no wait.

I called BestBuy.com this morning to get the PM on LA Noire. I'm a Silver member, so I'm in the 45 day return window. She gave me $22.00 credit ($20 + $2 tax) with no complaints. I was worried that since I got the $15 gc originally that I would only get $5 back.
So now: $60 out of pocket - $20 PM - $15 gc - $10 RZ credit (500 bonus points for pre-order) = $15 for LA Noire. I'm happy.


just called, took 5 mins and got back $22 as well. thanks for the confirmation that it worked :)

Picked up Flingsmash and Wii Play Motion Plus deal at my local TRU. Thinking of returning them since shopping experience today was incredibly poor/negative, so much I regret buying now.

Does anyone know if Best Buy matched this deal? I feel that TRU shouldn't have gotten my money this time, but like the deal.

Some BB reps will deduct the pm using the gc value against you but it's really simple for them to override & give full cash back I've had it done numerous times.

Was able to get Best Buy to price match TRU's Buy 2 for $50 since the local TRU didn't have any FEAR 3 or Portal 2 for the PS3. All Best Buy did was look at the image scan that was in the original thread on my iPhone and a manager approved it.

Glad I was able to get in at this fantastic deal!

Just got back from Best Buy - love my local store (Aiea, Hawaii). I printed out the .pdf I found in a thread this morning (where did it go?) displaying the 2/$50, took it to the cashier, and she said "Hmm, we're not supposed to price match bundles, let me go ask the manager." After she disappeared for a minute, she came back and rang up my Fear 3 and LA Noir for $50 total! She couldn't believe the sale, and asked me to make a copy of my printout. When I told her she could keep it, she was excited. Thanks CAG!

Looks like TRU has pulled the deal. I went in store Monday and got LA Noire and Brink (Portal2 was all gone) both for $50. I went back Tuesday to exchange Brink (after reading reviews) for one of the others. There is now a notice on the display case stating that the 2 for $50 deal had been a mistake and should have been "buy 2 get a $50 gift card." I don't see how it could have been a mistake being that the promo was in the system and the ad. The games rang up to $50 together and the receipt says "2 for $50 promo." Anyways, I talked to the manager and he let me exchange Brink for F3AR with no issue.

Not to be offensive, but three people on this page alone indicated they have. So, asking at this point is like asking if Dirk Nowitzki just won the title looking at ESPN with him holding the trophy :applause:

Well for the record there are only two people who reported it, but I understand where you are coming from. I just am quite a drive away from Best Buy and have had bad luck PMing deals like this. I suppose I will head out now however and hope for the best!

Hah, no worries. And thank you for the kind wishes, it did work out. They would not allow it at first because of the 'bundle' concept as usual, but as usual, being a polite young man with sweet little cashiers did not fail me. I worry for the day that I become unattractive and can no longer sway young women... or perhaps I will just change my target cashier from the 17-27 range to the older ones hahah.


And to who asked if it is wrong to PM a no longer active deal? Yes I suppose it is, but in the grand scheme of things not really, I know of plenty of things CAGs have done that are much worse.
