Time for the CAG drinking game: one shot every time someone types "placeholder."


The placeholder option is dead this year. It will not be allowed

What are you talking about $30 for Batman? It is only a $30 coupon for your next gaming purchase. You will still have to fork over $60+tax cash to get Batman and then the $30 coupon. In essence, it's two games for $45 each. I could see why people would want to go for the B2G1 deal because that's only $40 per game.

What are you talking about $40 a game? More like $40 + tax. The only reason I could see people getting on this deal is for games that are already out. But still most games that are getting released around October and September have a good chance of being on sale on Black Friday for around $35.

Yeah. Since 2007 i haven't bought $60 nor $50 dollar games. However, there's plenty of $20 dollar games i could mix and match. Can't wait for Amazon to price match this insane deal.

I'm not a BestBuy expert but I don't think they ever price match deals, but only prices. I might be wrong though. Seems like they might because many people are counting on it. and for Amazon also.

YMMV but some people were able to match this last year.

On Sunday I'm looking topick up Rage, Dark Souls and Resistance 3

How do you know?


Everyone keeps hoping for Dark Souls. I see it on the online store, but has anyone seen Dark Souls at their local Toys R Us stores?

thats bc TRU does sell Dark Souls

I don't think they'll release batman to their bm store during the week. Whenever tru had this promo, they usually held the games releasing on the same week

I think I'd rather wait for Best Buy to have their yearly Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale since as long as it isn't next week, they'll have more games to offer that I'd want.

New register program.

It will take the value of the free game and factor it into the return price of the two games you pay for.

If all your games are $60, your receipt will look something like this. The refund price may be a few dollars more. I'm not sure about the exact percentage of the free game will be deducted, I know it's between 75% - 100%, but you will get an idea.

Game 1 $59.99
(refund price $29.99)

Game 2 $59.99
(refund price $29.99)

Game 3 $0.00


If you try to return game 1 or 2 after the sale is over, you will only get credit for the refund price, not the whole value of the game.

If you want your money back after the sale, you will need to return ALL 3 games to get back exactly what you paid.

Also, im pretty sure most Best Buy's wont match this. Everytime i tried, they always said it was bundling.

I wouldnt be surprised if Best Buy ended up doing thier B2G1 shortly anyway

Good to prevent fraud, but sucks for those giving/receiving as gifts.

Mine wouldn't refund me at all for deals like this or Buy 2 for $50.

Cant believe nobody figured out BB already matched this. Got the email earlier from them saying "Pre-order Batman: Arkham City; buy 2 games, get 1 free". Basically the same thing considering you can just cancel the pre-order.

It's not pre-order Batman: Arkham City and get to be able to B2G1F. They're completely unrelated- the email title just means "Pre-order Batman: Arkham City or do the B2G1F we're doing" which is on USED games, as it says in the email.

Portal 2 i thought was a shooter

Hmm. I'll probably have 3 separate transactions. Maybe 4 if i decide to go for some 60 dollar new releases. But I'll get Red dead Redemption Game of the Year, Donkey Kong Country returns, and Mario Galaxy 2. Then I'll get me 3 30 dollar games for 20 bucks each( probably Arkham Asylum and NFS: HP among them) and 3 20 dollar games( probably some Nintendo selects and maybe a PS3 oldie) So that sets me back 200 plus tax. If I get the 3 60 dollar games we're looking at 320 plus tax. I'm actually kinda hoping my Toys R Us doesn't have all the games I want, cause that's the only way I'm saving my cash.

Willpower young Jedi. You must learn it if you expect to be anything but constantly broke while on CAG.;)

All games get price drops and clearances(save for first party titles which take forever:roll:), so why buy new at launch?

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

They always have in the past. The more I think about it I think they did it the week after TRU last year so hopefully they will wait an extra week or two this time.
