I'm doing the 5/$100 deal.

I've bought two games and pre-ordered two so far.

NCAA 12 for $40
Madden 12 for $45
Gears 3 will be $60
FIFA 12 will be $45

Most of those came/come with DLC and I essentially a $20 GC with each game due to the 5/$100 deal.

And I can trade in most of those games and get pack close to what I paid for them.

Now explain to me how any other retailer is even close to that? Kmart may give you a $20 coupon but they don't price match.

And you know what the best part of this is? I won't have to spend $1 out of pocket to buy these games as I'm using trade in credit.

And apparently the US postal service doesn't deliver to Long Island.


Hmm? I'm doing the promotion too, just with different games (Skyward Sword among them, which is getting a $10 pre-order bonus on top of that, with a base price of $50, btw). I was talking about the Gears 3 deal in particular (getting $20 off a Live Card) even when bundled with that promotion (which most people who buy it aren't planning for), it's kinda lacking (comparatively to other retailers, K-mart in particular). You must have misunderstood me.

Oh, you mean the mail-in program? Because that's not a giant pain in the ass, right? If it was as streamlined as Amazon's maybe, but when you're doing trade-ins for extra % and such, more often than not it'll get botched.

How is FIFA 12 gonna be $45? Is that a release week sale from somewhere else, or are you just hoping for a PM within the window?

Not every Best Buy in the country will PM Toys R Us "ONLINE ONLY" price of $45 dollars. I don't see why people account for major YMMV PM's in their overall savings.

Agreed, I sure as hell wasnt able to get them to pm that deal and im in my bestbuy at least 3 days a week.

The best PM for madden thus far has been 49.99 this week at toysrus.

Going to grab Gunstringer and hopefully TRU will have the Kinect Zoom in stock as well so I can use the GC on that. Gun Stringer and the Zoom for $55 sounds good.

Not to nitpick but you guys do know its actually called The Gunstringer?

EDIT- also there is free DLC on the market place for it for those who dont know. (for gold only as BobbyTastic pointed out) I think it may be a limited thing also, so get it now.

About 85% sure ill pick up the gunstringer. No doubt this will be 20 bucks by years end but I played the demo with my little guy and we both enjoyed it.

The gears controller is also something I was looking at. Are there better deals on it out there?

Buy.com had it for $40 last week (their ebay store) Maybe keep a eye on that.

If i go to Target tomorrow and pick up the GoW3 pre-order coupon that comes w/ a $5 gift card, can I still get the "$10 Giftcard w/purchase of $60 Gears of War 3 AND $1 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Pre-order" when I pick up GoW3 and get the MW3 pre-order?

I think the free DLC is Gold only though, just figured I'd point that out.

Also, the 3DS deals in this are pretty lackluster which is a shame since TRU is a bit of a drive and I'll be there this week for Zoroark. Guess I'll just be looking at Clearance stuff, or holding out 'till the 25th. Too bad I don't have a Kinect yet.

I believe that Gold members had a one-week head start, but it should be available to all this week.

Definitely a good deal on Gunstringer, and I'll be taking my BB copy back too, unless they decide to match it. Also, at least TRU is doing something for the Gears console purchase, which is better than a lot of the other retailers.

So do we even know that any part of the country will get a full weekly ad instead of this new two-part split one?

Just a heads up; Gamestop has Frogger 3D for $30, in case someone prefers to save $10 instead of getting a $15 GC.

Target's offering a $40 GC to my knowledge, actually. I'm not surprised Frogger can be found elsewhere to cheaper, why in the Fuck would you release it @ $40?

Sounds good to me. You're still paying for it while you're there. It's a shame every other retailer has offered closer to a $20 GC for Gears 3 on its own.

Just start checking BB.com in the next hour or two, with your zip code entered. I guess only then will we know if there are any 7-day ads. They usually seem to update Sunday mornings around 1-2 AM EST. I still can't believe my little podunk BB's would have such a hip, different ad format. The locals would be up in arms!

good luck geting 45 bucks out of madden and the football game a month after they come out. dont know why anyone pays full price anymore for a football game. within a month they are half price some place

and i never can see how people dont think they are paying when they use trade in credit.... you paid money cause you could of used the trade in credit some place else ...
