yeah they will let you replace it probly for the same game, but that's if you are lucky and they have that same game used in your store. very ymmv


If they don't have the same game instock they have to give you store credit for what you bought.

Used games have the same defective return policy as new. If it doesn't work, bring it back to the store or send it back online. You'll either get it replaced with the same game or get a credit.

BTW, all discs are resurfaced so the likelihood of getting a defective game is very low.

I ordered 4 games and already received a backordered email from BB for Batman AA for PS3.

Since this was a game I paid for (2 others were listed as free) what are they going to do if they don't have this game?

Can I pick a similar priced game?

Or if I cancel the order for this game, does it affect the price for the 2 free games?

Any thoughts?

How do you know how much you will get back when 2 are at full used price and 2 are free. The obvious answer is total/4, but that does not really make sense either because if you bought games of different values, you could receive back more than you paid.

Once again I am reminded of why I don't go to Best Buy for ANYTHING. Everything I would want is 'Not Available for Shipping'.

Figures, every time BB has a sale on games, none of the BB stores in NYC ever have any of the deals going.

Much like it's fat ugly older sister Gamestop, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A DEAL AT BEST BUY! (sorry guys, I had to say it, lol!)

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.

There is a chance if you return one of the games the was purchased from the B2G2 that is a paid game you would get the full credit amount back. This happened to me when the B2G1 glitch happened with Kinect disneyland and 2x Skyrim CE. I eventually returned one of the CE figuring that I would get back half of the price (75.00) but they game me the whole 158.99 back so I kept the other CE for free.

I tried really hard to qualify for the deal but after browsing over 800 games (between PS3 and PSP) twice I just couldn't find 4 games. Pushing it I could get to 3, with The Orange Box, Madden 11, and Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core. Oh well :(.

wow you did not take advantage of the deal at all ... why would you get a 17.99 game and mix that with a 4.99?

you are supposed to stay in the same range with the games ...

like I got 4 games for $10.56 because they were all 4.99 and then got another set for $33 which were all 17.99 games

yea I understand you wanted the game but ... dude .. you could have gotten a steal.. instead you got a very ok deal especially because they were ps2 games


You should have seen the crappy selection they had at my Best Buy. Not gonna pay $30 for a used copy of Yakuza 4, most PS3 games were crap games like madden 08, over priced, or games I've already played/own.

"you are supposed to..." Screw you! I bought games I wanted, not games I'm gonna flip or trade. Sly 1 is the only Sly game I really like, Mercenaries Is a game I wanted for a while, Homecoming a game I wanted to play, and Wet another game I wanted to play.
Don't go and say "supposed to" I tried...and stayed within the price range I was willing to spend.

Targets clearance more then makes up for their weak ads though, so I find it hard to be too harsh with them.

I really want to take advantage of this deal but many of the cheap games are not available for shipping and are not instock at my BBY.

But I'm confused shouldn't all games have the option to ship to store if I so choose? Only Bionic Commando let me do that so far.

This past week, Target had quite a few "Temporary Price Drops" on some games that weren't advertised in my area. Maybe more of those?


Same at the Target I visited. Witcher 2 was $29.99, and some other console games were on sale too.

I want to get Super Mario 3D Land and Donkey Kong Country Returns. However, I do not want any other games. Does anyone want only 2 games and we can split the deal? Dividing the costs appropriately? If so, message me or reply to this thread. Preferably message me.

I went to BB do buy my games since I wanted to check to make sure they had the cover art and manual. I get up to the register and notice that my 10% GU did not kick in since I'm buying used games. I had tried to place an order online and it did. The guy tells me you can't double dip in the store. So I left with no games and will try to order online. I should get the exact games I had in my hand at the store as they only had one copy of each game.

FYI: You could've used one of the in-store customer kiosks while still in the store to place the order, then just went and looked around while they got the order ready for you.;)

So I went to the Gamestop nearby to see if I could get The Orange Box for $10 dollars more than Best Buy (but using gift cards) and I walked out with Madden 11 for $13.99. I get home and on a whim enter the online pass code... and it works! :hot:

I bought Rango before Christmas as used, I got a new copy instead (with preowned sticker on it). It came with the movie cash or something... I had fun playing for the platinum trophy, relaxing :) It's the only game I actually unlocked all of the trophies on the hardest difficulty :lol: If you like Ratchet and Clank, Rango is an inferior clone, it's not a bad game for under $10.

Oh, I forgot to post this, got it from the PSV forum.
