Best Buy, and most places, won't price match any sort of buy 1 get 1 50% off sale, typically they won't price match any % off sale, even if it list the price, unless they list what the price is after that.

You can get a simple % off pm
If the ad says " ____ game is 25% off" w/o listing the actual price itself just pull the item up on your smartphone the discounted price will show there $45. Same goes for ads that say "all accessories 25% off" just show the physical ad 1st then show the item itself.

As for pm'ing a b2g1, b1g1 or b1g1 50% off the easiest way to score a pm would be to purchase alot, my BB's are straight forward they "don't want me to go next door and purchase 6-10 games elsewhere" especially when I'm usually grabbing $40-$60 titles. To them that's a sure thing $250 purchase gone. Fortunately there's no upsell for warranties otherwise their usual strategy would require you to buy the geek squad protection to boost their #'s in return for the YMMV pm but you could still just cancel it after 1 month anyways.

It all comes down to "selling the deal"...
1-"I'd rather give BB the $"
2-"A large purchase like this will help me remain/earn RZ silver status"
3-"I have a RZ card, Premier Silver status & gamers club unlocked I'd rather keep ALL my purchase at 1 store especially since "they" don't have a reward program like BB's or as great as BB's"
4-"I wish there was some way you could offer something competitive that way I don't have to leave here empty handed AND continue my other shopping that I was planning to do."
I've used them all but it also helps that I'm in the store alot, know several clerks by name & speak/make convo all the time even when I don't need them.

I'm hoping Dead Island is one of the other 50 participating titles. Thanks for posting OP!

Naw, I much rather pm the $25 gc deal from TRU on Dead Island, Driver SF, COD BO & X-men Destiny scoring all these for $140 + tax

Sometimes I don't understand you. I know you bleed "Blue & Yellow" and you've been really helpful but in one post you'll talk about how it is against Policy for BB to PM Gift Card and Bundle promotions and in the next post you talk about how you can't wait to PM the $25 Dead Island deal at TRU with Best Buy.

What is it? You're sounding more and more like an employee.

I want to be clear it IS AGAINST policy but if your making a larger purchase on items that aren't usually bought in "bulk" you have a much better chance of scoring the YMMV pm's. How many people in a day are going to goto CS to purchase $250-$300 in games when that's basically the price of system? So when a CS rep/manager sees this, they also see my RZ card & the cash they know I'm ready to buy now if not at BB then at one of the stores in the same/next shopping center.

I'm fortunate to live in a large metro area(Philly) where stores are all close together for example:my local BB(#476) is 5 min from house but (#525) is only 10-12 min the opposite direction, (#448 & #577) area 20 min away & (#197) is only 25 min away from (#448). Just using these stores there's 5 malls w/i 5 min of all of them(Willow Grove, Montgomeryville, Oxford Valley, Plymouth Meeting & King of Prussia). There's 5-6 Targets, 3 TRU's, at least 10 GS's, 3 kmart's, Sam's club, Walmart & Costco all w/i 5 min of most of these BB's many in the same shopping centers. So it's not a hassle/waste of gas/time for me to go take a pic of the items in the store I want to pm. When I goto CS all my $hit is prepared so when I tell them I'll go next door and buy they know I already been there and would rather spend @ BB.

It also helps that I've been pm'ing like crazy for several years now too(at least 50 times this year alone usually at 1 store(#476) so all the managers/CS reps know me & how much I spend there. The 1 time a was denied a gc pm from a newly promoted manager the rep let her know "he purchases alot here his RZ silver status is mainly from games we deduct the $15 gc value per policy(at that time) direct from the $60...BESIDES HE'S GONNA SPEND IT RIGHT BACK ANYWAYS I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM JUST LEAVE HE GOES BACK AND BUYS MORE STUFF". From talking to them behind the scenes I have got a good understanding on what/how to say things to get what I want whether it buying more than I may have wanted upfront & then returning a item if need be or just stocking up in general.

I could never work there b/c they don't pay enuf to cover my "recreational spending" even with an employee discount. Maybe 10-12 years ago before I really got bills but not at 31 I'm too old for retail been there done that.

This X 1000

I know when they did the B1G1 50% off for 3DS games it was every 3DS game (at least at my local Target). Really hope that's the case again.

I was just lamenting nowhere having an ICO/SOTC deal, and here this possibility pops up :D

Do you mean store #576 in Willow Grove? That is the store I mainly go to and I have tried many times price matching a TRU GC deal in that store, but they say there's no possible way it can be done every time.

Directly Contradicts the price match policy of no "free" Gifts.

He already told you he has a relationship with his CS reps since he buys tons of stuff and PMs it for many years. He is totally aware of the Policy supposed to deny it. But with those geting around the policies, some get lucky. He is one of them so you take his PM "deals" with a grain of salt. The only time Best Buy 100% PM is when the sale is a hard sale price i.e. Deus Ex for 34.99. That's it. Everything else is YMMV.

How do you figure? Are you just subtracting the GC's you're getting?

Well, if the TIV of Driver holds, you could atleast flip it back to Best Buy for 44.8 after the 60% assuming they havent completely fucked up your Gamer club like most everyone.

Id like to PM somewhere else for ICO collection. Dont really wanna drop 60.

Store #576 doesn't care I've already spoken to them about it they don't want to lose the sale TRU is 4 traffic lights away. The reg. CS reps & managers that I see conistantly(shop the same days of the week) have confirmed it won't be a problem just show the ad like I normally do anyways. But even I don't get all the deals my BB won't match kmart's gaming coupons b/c there not called "giftcards".
