Sorry if this has been answered....lots of pages here to read through.

For the TRU B2G1, can it be used on POINTS cards?
It appears that XBOX points work based on the website, but does the PSN points work? I know those are handled like a gift card (sort of).
Thanks!

In-store, they're gift cards because they're scanned and activated at the register. This is why they won't work in-store.

On TRU.com, there's no way they have to activate them, so they're in the clamshell packaging and pre-activated. TRU may have them as an accessory on the site, so that's why they would work for B2G1.

well since the best buy trade-in value site still lists Just Dance 3 for Xbox 360 as trading in for $29 I decided to go ahead and buy 3 copies from TRU

placed an order via their website for in store pickup :) came to $73.48 after 5% sales tax

While at my TRU to pick up Just Dance 3, the employee mentioned that the Cabela 2011 game with gun was just marked down to $9.98. I saw PS3 and XBOX I think. You could get 3 of those, trade in 2 to Best Buy to cover your costs (at $9 each) and have the game and 3 guns.

Went the $20 game route.
Got 360 Final Fantasy XIII, PS3 Mass Effect 2, and Wii Nintendo Select Super Mario Galaxy.

Edit: Didn't see Wii Super Paper Mario, PS3 Child of Eden, Time Crisis Razing Storm, Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition (did have separate versions) or Fist of the North Star. Prince of Persia HD collection had a price tag of $40, but the spot for it was empty, didn't bother asking.

Did see Dark Souls and one lone copy of Kirby Mass Attack. I noticed that there were some DS games with red cases. Super Mario 64 DS, Bowser's Inside Story, and Mario & Luigi Partners in Time were the ones I remember. I'm guessing they are the TRU exclusive reprints, reminds me of the PS3 greatest hits cases.

why would you get 360 FFXIII if you have a PS3?

Don't trust the website for instore pickup. When I tried online they said they did not have Mass Effect 2 for PS3 and when I went into the store they had like 5 copies. Grabbed that and 2 Mario DS cases for my boys for christmas. Also scored COD Modern Warfare X360 for $7.89 due to mismarking.

Tried BB personal shopper to PM since the store most likely would reject, and they do match the promo from TRU, but they do not allow you buy 3 same items or items with same price together, and the FREE item must have lower price than the other two. Meanwhile, they also don't match the TRU's online price while matching B2G1F offer. Might just stick with my TRU order and hopefully they come sooner....

I still want to know how TRU gonna distribute their 1970s Batsuit skin DLC: email or in-pack?

yes, the point cards sold in store might be different from the one sold online, especially 12 month xbox live membership cards. The ones online are usually plastic packed with different UPC and SKU.

Rage and Dead Island both smell like games that will be $39.99 or less by Black Friday if not sooner. I would go with something more likely to hold it's price.

I'm going to go by the store soon since they still haven't done anything with my order, maybe just grab the games and take them up to the counter with my order confirmation email :-P

They'll match it but not on items with the same price? That's really odd.

Not likely, but ymmv. I called mine, they said that they don't have it, and its not scheduled to show up in tomorrow's shipment but to call again tomorrow anyways. The website now says "estimated ship date 10/19". You can add it to your cart for an online order though, which i may do if they don't have it in tomorrow.

For games coming out tomorrow, does anyone know when they'll go live on the TRU website? I'm looking to get Ratchet & Clank as part of the deal and I'd rather do it online.

EDIT: Nevermind, it's already live!

Also, while at toys rus i also asked abotu the buy 2 get 1 free for batman, they said that if you do include batman as 1 of yoru games for the buy 2 get 1 free you will NOT get the figure that comes with it but you will get the DLC code for the 1970 batman skin...soooo that sucks :)


Can anyone else confirm this? I was planning on picking up three copies of Batman for me and two friends. I thought that the code was included in with the figure and thought I'd get three copies of the game and three figures/codes.

yeah, I almost have a fight with them. maybe it's because I am requesting the new games

it sounds like they just will to give a free game with cheaper price, and you know BB price higher than TRU, for example Just Dance 3 and Sims 3 Pets...

Arrg there was no Kirby mass attack at my TRU. Really Kirby selling out? I got two Peaches DS games but I want Kirby so I got Partners in time as a placeholder.
