Would be nice on the B2G1. They have a black label Uncharted 1 I would like to pick up, but $20 is too much for it.

I wish I could find a copy of Skyrim and ME3 to pick up.

Would it be a total waste to use $10 off 29.99 coupons with this (if I can get it applicable)
Cause I have 3 games in mind that are $34.99
So I only have to pay $50 instead of $70?
Honestly, it's just these coupons are going to haunt me until I use them and the coupons expire by next week

Why not just buy the 2 you want, and one with a decent trade-in value?

It doesn't sound like you even want the games, and just want to get rid of the coupon. Your not really saving money if your spending it on something pointless. To answer your original question, the @gamer coupons don't stack with offers only sale prices. But you might encounter an employee who will do an override which is ymmv.

hmmmmm i forgot, can you still buy amazon gift cards with best buy gift cards, didn't they stop that?

I think some people had their stores remove the pre-paid Visa cards, but unless something has changed I think most BB stores should still have the Amazon cards.

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

Traded in some games tonight.

2x ME3 360 $48 base
2x ME3 PS3 $48 base
2x MW3 360 $48 base
2x MW3 PS3 $48 base
2x Uncharted 3 $36 base
2x Bulletstorm PS3 $12 base
1x Black Ops PS3 $18 base
Got $412.80. Paid $190 oop for them all so I feel petty good about it. If this promo is still running next week I'll get another couple hundred.

Nah, these are games I would have picked up eventually, they are just a bit more pricey then I would like.
The thing is, I was hoping they would take it if I used coupons on all games instead of using one coupon and making one of the higher games to match the other two games, you know?

If anything I'll just pick up Black ops from both consoles and a free game.
Hopefully there is good TIV bonus for next week .

Uh...based on BBY's new 1-copy-per-platform trading rule, you have six legitimate reasons to be banned. :roll:

Don't know if others can confirm, but when trading in today, I saw the 50% promo date stretching to 06/02/12 when he was selecting it. I pointed out that the date showed it ended today, but he shrugged and said "I guess not".

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

because when someone says base, it usually means that it's the base value of a single copy of the game. if anything it would usually say something like

2X Uncharted 3 - $18 Base

but yeah, hopefully the 50% really is until 6/2.

considering BBY is having a B2G1 free promo on pre-owned games this week... i would assume they would try and extend the 50% trade in bonus to keep supply of pre-owned games flowing in store. (fingers crosssed for confirmation on weekly ad update at midnight tonight)

here's a nice little game you guys can buy tomorrow and flip right back to best buy. Disney Universe is on sale for 7.99 for all systems. It trades back in at best buy for $13 base on 360 and PS3, then $12 for Wii. So hopefully the 50% does extend, to make this flip better.


warning/disclaimer: doing this flip could lead to you being banned. so do so at your own caution.
