Not sure where you got the idea this was all DS games in that price range OP. The ad is pretty clear it's only the ones pictured.

I just got an email ad from Toys R Us confirming the 2 for $40 deal is only for those games listed. I'll change the OP.

40% Bump if you pre-order Madden 12... You mean like that?


Yeah, like that.

The deal is +40% trade-in credit on SELECT GAMES if you preorder Madden 12... but i can not find out where a list of the select games is located. If you click the Madden preorder deal on BB's site it just opens up BB's game trade-in value estimator. It never shows a list.

Also, there is a deal going on if you take more than two games in for trade you will get +25% trade-in bonus.

So I am trying to figure out if it is possible to use BOTH bonuses if I just bring in 10+ games and the computer will sort out the ones for the Madden 12 bonus and the other bonus.

...or if I should figure out which games give the extra 40% trade-in and do two separate trade-ins.

so I was in best buy trading in a few things yesterday and at least my store has gotten as bad or worse as gamestop at hassling you for pre-orders now.

I was looking around the 360 section for the oblivion steelbook release and this lady comes up to me asking me if i have ever pre-ordered.

I'm forced to indulge her in 10 minutes of back and forth on why no, I don't want to pre-order before just deciding to get rude and tell her I don't buy new games at best buy because kmart has better deals on new releases.

Fucking obnoxious and makes me not want to go back to best buy. Why does upper management at any retail store think this is a good idea? Especially with employees who obviously know nothing about games and just have a salesman flowchart to follow. Do normal people not see through that shit or what?


This happened to me for the first time when I went to pick up Trials/Limbo/Splosion Man for $10 @ BB the Saturday before last. After noticing my eye for deals, the guy did proceed to show me the Pre-Order 5 for $100 deal (and mentioned the now defunct Rewards Zone bonus of $20), but the worst part was he actually knew what he was talking about. So when I said I played Batman, he went on and on about the exclusive Robin pre-order bonus and how great a game it'll be like the last one, etc. At least when they don't know crap, they can't actually throw a list of reasons at you. So I'd say I'd rather have Joe Schmo who earns minimum wage try to sell me on a pre-order rather than a guy who knows he's blowing smoke, if only because the other guy is the tiniest bit more effective and a lot more longwinded.

I think the way they put the "DS Games priced $29.99 to $34.99" in the ad will throw people off. They should have said "THESE GAMES." But if it was for all games in that price range, they wouldn't have put just the crappy ones in the ad like they did.

I don't blame the employees its the upper management that pressures them into these situations for joe schmoe who will buy modern warfare 3 and madden every year and best buy tailors their sales pitches to that.

the 4 games for PS Move Tiger Woods bundle to select from are Sports Champions, Start The Party, PS Move Heroes, and EyePet...... told the guy at the store what a wasteful selection...and in store only

It indicates on the website that locations, and games may vary per store, but but I cant see any of the stores offering Killzone 3, LBP2, or even SOCOM or NBA 2K11.....sigh

My location is PHX, AZ maybe other areas and results can be different from mine. Good Luck


Same 4 free game options at my Target in New Jersey, but they didn't have the Tiger Woods bundle, only the Start the Party bundle. So really you only had a choice of 3 free games. I passed.

I think it was done that way because one of the games listed as part of the deal "Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics" is $34.99. I wish it was for all games as well though. I still haven't played Kingdom Hearts ReCoded or Monster Tale, both of which I'd like to get around to picking up eventually.

Gears of War Triple Pack is on sale for $19.99. No pre-order required. I know there's a whole other thread devoted to that deal but I thought it should be added to the OP

yeah, but the $20 off coupon requires a pre-order of GoW3 & you end up only paying $5 + tax instead of $20 + tax. And if you don't want the pre-order you can always cancel it & get your $5 back.

hmm... anybody know if BB PM's gc deals? also, if i do the xbox deal, and i have an old BB gc, i can just get them to put the money on that right?

The used to policy updated 7/10 but we all know informed CS reps aren't always in abundance LOL. But BB is offering a gc themselves too & I'm not sure if the system req. a new one to be scanned.

Gears of war triple pack should be free w/@gamer coupon you should only be paying $5 for the GoW3 pre-order, BB Corp responded to this issue print it out or show them in-store. If they refuse alert corp so the store/regional managers can be notified & you can get the deal.

Does anyone know if Target would PM a BB ad? I really want to pick up Dragon Age II since I have a Target GC that would knock off tax and some sales price, otherwise I would just go through Amazon. I have a BB GC as well, but the closest BB to me is over 35 minutes away.

As helpful in answering my question as that was, we have no PC Richard and Son stores near me, I can't get it for the PS3, and because the BB stores are so far from me I never subscribed/had their gamer coupon booklets. So yeah.

that's why the 1st thing I stated was "not sure what state your in" as this would make a big difference & it's a $10+ price difference. The only reason I mention the previous @gamer coupon deal is I see alot people gauge whether the game will drop further by the most recent deals.
