The website has the 4-day weekly ad up online for my area. Which is a shame because there's nothing but Gears deals in it.

Well, that makes going this week for the Zoroark promotion worth it.

Can't wait to go to Best Buy on Tuesday...

Gonna match the K-Mart $20 coupon deal to get a $20 gift card with my GoW3 Collector's Edition (my local store is awesome when it comes to matching deals), and I was going to pick up The Gunstringer as well because until the 25th if I spend $100 on a purchase, I get $10 bonus RZ points...now I'll have them match the TRU deal and get a $15 gift card...

So I'll be spending $120+tax and getting $45 back in RZ/gift cards. Score.

Speaking of BestBuy - I went into one of their Bricks and Mortar Stores the other week and they trashed the PC Games Section - It doesn't even take up like half an isle now. Was so disappointed and so frustrated. Obviously us PC Gamer fans are no longer considered important.


That and the prices are way up. I remember being able to get Doom 3 for $5 from them, BF2 for $10, good times.

best buy preorders SUCK.

the recept you get only says you put 5 bucks on the game..

I went in 2 weeks ago preordered Dragon quest joker 2 for 29.99 now the price is 34.99

I was told i have to pay the 34.99 tomorrow since ihave no proof it was 29.99

FU best buy


Amazon has it at 34.99. Blame the publisher, not the stores.

good luck geting 45 bucks out of madden and the football game a month after they come out.

A good portion did by matching Toys R Us on release day before their online price said online only.

This is very vague detail about how to obtain the 399.00 Gears of war 3 Console with the $40.00 Gift card. I have called Target and the managers know nothing. I have looked at their website and there is nothing there. I have been looking at this since you posted it and it is finally 9/18/2011 and I see no evidence about how to get this...

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.


Well when I show the price from my iphone of the Toysrus site it doesn't indicate anywhere that its an online only price so I guess thats how some were able to get it. Or maybe you need to get an iphone yourself :D jk.

I'm willing to be the Baird code will be fetching $20-30 on eBay after a month or two. I'll take that over BB credit =P

Still might get at GS so I don't have to spend any cash, I only have about $30 in BB credit right now and they never have good deals any more, or I miss the best deals (DSIII and Child of Eden...)

I called best buy and they said they would price match. I went in today and preordered the console there and got the $40 gift card also!!! Thank you guys for this post! I canceled my order with Gamestop because they wouldn't price match. But then when I went in to cancel they thought they would sneak in the idea to me that they would price match at the last second. I told them to F off!

When I tried to PM at one Best Buy they wouldn't do it either for Deus Ex last week, I had to go to another one out of the way to do it. So it's clearly your store/clerk may very. I know none of mine will PM ANY gift card offer (but they do not price match gift cards per their new policy since they consider it a free gift item or some bs.) so for all those that can get that done to me is unbelieveable so I will have to get that gunstringer in TRU store. They are getting to be more and more of a pain in the ass to price match and since they messed up my Resistance 3 pre-order I'm not even bothering for that reward zone/gc promo junk anymore, in addition they changed that gamers club points any way so it's not as quality.

So I took advantage of the extra 50% trade-in deal and unloaded a buncha old games & pre-ordered Gears 3. Was going to get the 12 month Live card, but now I see Kmart has it for $10 cheaper. What are the odds BB will PM the Kmart deal? And any chance of getting more than 1 card?

"vague"
"$40 Giftcard w/purchase of $400 LE Gears of War 3 Bundle"
buy the console & the pc automatically issues the gc no different than any other target gc console deal that they have at least like 2X a month. There's 4 gc offers why'd you only single out this one.

Anyways,
Page 15 in the weekly ad right under the belkin G wireless router in big bold red print "Free $40 Targer giftcard when you buy THIS X360 bundle"
and the only X360 shown underneath is the red one with the gears logo, the GoW3 game & 2 red controllers matching the console.
"available Tuesday! Gears of War 3 X360 bundle features 250 GB Xbox game system, Gears of War 3 and two wireless controllers. Quanties limited;no rainchecks. Terms and conditions apply to giftcards.

I figured that was the limitations of it. That's why I was going to pick up The Gunstringer on my way into work and then swing by after work and get the Zoom.

With all the Gears talk I don't see it mentioned that Toys R Us has a deal buy 2 get one free for all games priced 19.99 or less. There are also some games priced at buy 1 get 1 40% off although I don't see anything good. Also FIFA 12 is 25% off with Free Shipping online.

Managed to get Best Buy to price match the $15 gift card deal for Gunstringer from Toys R' Us. The manager was happy to price match but must of felt like he had to put some "limitation" on it and said I couldn't use my reward zone with it so I couldn't get the points... haha, whatever I was paying with a gift card anyway. That said, just going to go report the purchase as missing online anyway just cause I can.

Just bought a 360s with the credit I had from trading in my old 360 in preparation for Gears 3. I'll be going to Kmart since I have a $20 credit and get Gears and Live at half off even if Live isn't worth the price of admission but at $30 its a pill I can swallow.

best buy preorders SUCK.

I went in 2 weeks ago preordered Dragon quest joker 2 for 29.99 now the price is 34.99
I was told i have to pay the 34.99 tomorrow since ihave no proof it was 29.99 FU best buy

where did you see the actual discounted price BB.com? If so, that's online only unless the store has the item avail. for sale at that time.

Maybe they gonna start doing ads like Gamestop and run it from Thursday-Wednesday instead of Sunday-Saturday?

My gut tells me it's 1 of 2 things
1-they have a special sale starting this weekend
2-they're using a new sales strategy:drive a second wave a foot traffic thru the stores on the weekend & make it harder for online retailers to match their sales b/c by the time they do the prices will be different.

Gonna match the K-Mart $20 coupon deal to get a $20 gift card with my GoW3 Collector's Edition (my local store is awesome when it comes to matching deals)

my BB's are too but the "gaming coupons" no go. If they actually were called "giftcards" wouldn't be a problem.

I'm willing to be the Baird code will be fetching $20-30 on eBay after a month or two. I'll take that over BB credit =P

they never have good deals any more, or I miss the best deals (DSIII and Child of Eden...)

why settle get both...pm GoW3 to get $15-$20 back plus the $20 credit look at Deus Ex $35 TRU pm + $10 pre-order credit.

Went to BB to try to match the P11 and found out that Best Buy no longer PM's Toys 'R Us, WTF? when did this happen?

? Yours won't match any TRU sale price or TRU's giftcard deals? They still match any local store but policy has taken away the gc pm option.

Was going to get the 12 month Live card, but now I see Kmart has it for $10 cheaper. What are the odds BB will PM the Kmart deal? And any chance of getting more than 1 card?

no reason they shouldn't just show the discouted price from the ad or smartphone & they shouldn't limit quantities unless it's "excessive" but worse case just pm the item mulitiple times during the sale not during one trip. I believe there's a spending promo @ BB that'll stack & give $10 RZ credit too.

So Brink is $20 at Kmart? Wasn't there a $20 off Brink coupon in @Gamer? Can you PM and use the coupon for Brink for free?

you can pm but only on the back end but it won't work for this, if you bought it at BB using the coupon for $10 & it went on sale elsewhere later for $5 you could get the $5 back. Trying to score all the deals in 1 transaction will usually lead to a decline, a second may not be as feasable for some depending on the distance but those are the breaks.
