Why don't you just get arkham city at kmart and use the 30$ coupon on ace combat. You will only pay 30 for it and ace combat will net you a 20$ coupon after you buy it :)


That's not correct, you will only get the $20 coupon if you purchase Ace Combat this week.

I really don't even consider this much of a deal anymore. It's hilarious here, everybody talks as if they're tax exempt or something. It's like $44 per game. Whoopee. Amazon will have that for EVERY new release within 6 weeks of it's release. So basically you get a moderate deal on one new release for the same price it'll be on sale soon anyway and you get to watch 2 games sit on your shelf and depreciate in value, whereas if you just waited you'd get those other games for $30 or less when you actually got around to playing them.

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.


You can't compare a straight 2 game purchase to a 3 game purchase as a "per game rate". Especially if you're ignoring the multiple deals surrounding all these new releases that everyone is so hot for. If the other game you buy at KMart is $60 and doesn't have any deal (not a new release), then sure -- $45 for two. But no one is looking to buy a $60 copy of a year old game at TRU during these sales.

Let's give an example.

People listed the following:
Batman (30)
Gears (20)
NBA 2K11 (20)
Skyrim (20)
Rage (20)
etc

The amount placed next to the game is the "amount off" available at KMart for a future purchase.

So, if you are getting Rage, Batman, and Gears at this sale --- you could have done the following:
Bought Gears for $60 out of pocket.
Bought Rage for $40 out of pocket (-20 Gears Coupon)
Bought Batman for $40 out of pocket (-20 Rage Coupon).

For $140 you got ALL the games at release, without having to wait or hope to cheat the system AND you have $30 to spend on another game. Better yet, let's say you waited on Rage, etc. KMart tends to drop the games to $40-45 within 6-8 weeks of release. So instead of being concerned what to spend your $30 credit on you could do this:

Bought Gears for $60 out of pocket.
Bought Batman for $40 out of pocket (-20 Gears Coupon)
Bought Rage went it is inevitably on sale for $45 for $15 (-30 Batman Coupon)

There's $5 savings right there. If you're committing to buying 3 games at ONE time at TRU, you will likely buy more than 3 games throughout the holiday season --- true Cheap Ass or not.

You're right, if you want NO OTHER VIDEO GAME EVER, then buying them at TRU might be an okay option if you can find a game there that won't drop before the end of the Christmas season. Nevermind that at the end of the KMart example, you should have another $10-15 off games depending on the reward incentive weeks.

My fear of a b1g1 free for 3ds games happening on black friday is holding me back from doing the same thing. I was thinking about getting starfox and zelda along with sotd as they are all 40$ but than that black friday thought poped up in my head. I might still take the chance and do the tru deal

For real. I don't get the excitement over this annual sale either, especially given how often TRU likes to cancel orders and piss people off. However, when Amazon matches then I suppose I can see where people's true intentions lie.

If you're looking to get NHL 12, it's only $45 (Xbox 360) on Amazon right now, which is practically the same as this deal.

Excellent week for this to be happening.

I had always planned to buy these games full price, but now I will just get 2 for free.

I planned on buying Skylanders on 3DS and 360 this Sunday, so now I will just my Ace Combat: Assault Horizon for free instead of 60 bucks.

I also planned on buying Batman and Ratchet and Clank Tuesday, so I will just take Forza 4 for free instead of 60 bucks.

Good thing I waited on buying Ace Combat and Forza.

Well not everyone is buying $60 Ps3/Xbox 360 games. There are $35-30 DS games that will not get a price drop the next 6 months

But most people ARE (or seem to be using the thread as a sample). Most of the talk is about the AAA MP games.

The DS/3DS idea is the best one, especially given how Nintendo is.

I hope that the TRU site allows preorders. If they do, I'm set, and if they cancel, I'll get my two games at the discounted price. Win, meet Win.

The days of Nintendo trying to prevent price drops seems like a thing of the past. Almost all of the first party 3DS launch titles have been available for $20 at some point and I'm sure Starfox will join that list shortly. I don't think the TRU deal is the best deal out there, but at least last year Amazon matched with a lot of Atlus and other more obscure titles, so I was able to pick all of them up at what amounts to 33% off each with the no tax/free shipping.

I don't see what was so funny about my response all I said you can unless out of no where they put a limit to the games on sale so what happened back a few months back with the 2 for $ 50 sale where hoarders killed it doesn't happen again.
