Do I have to buy the @Gamer mag for $5, or will the employee just scan a floor copy without making me actually buy it? I'll buy the mag if I have to, but I really could care less about the mag itself, just need the epic coupons. :D


Again, people who are subscribed for the year and haven't received their copy for this month might luck out and get to use the story copy. But if you are not subscribed you are not supposed to get to use the store copy. It's not about "caring about the mag" it's about the fact these are coupons you are supposed to get with the purchase of the mag and not try to get around it because you are cheap.

The stuff people have posted in this thread is ridiculous. If they "forget" to charge you for the magazine it is probably because they thought you had a subscription or didn't know it wasn't free so you should have told them to charge you for it at the time. I guess $5 bucks to save $65 is still not a good deal to some so they have to resort to illegal/unethical things.

It really just depends on the employee you get.

Yeah, it's only $5 and the coupons more than pay for the mag itself. If the employee doesn't rip-out the coupons and leaves them intact, maybe I could return the mag afterwards lol. Ultimate CAG!!! :)

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.

If the BB employee doesn't rip-out the coupons, you could sell the mag to a friend for $2.50 and split the mag's price lol.

my issue hasn't arrived yet so employee suggested i buy an issue for the coupons now (even though they were out of the magazines) and return it later but then i also know that this particular store is very by the book so i had him ask his supervisor if it was possible to return a magazine.

The supervisor said no you can't return magazines.

Why even bother? Go to another store and look for the mag or pray yours will arrive soon.

My experience with Bestbuy is most don't know their head from their ass. I overheard a GEEK SQUAD'R tell a lady her laptop does not have a fan in it. UMMMM, since when does a laptop NOT have a FAN in it?

So yeah, I don't reply on anything anyone in a Bestbuy store tells me.

Was able to get on this early Sunday, which was a good thing because when I went to pick up my Mass Effect 3 preorder yesterday, there were pictures of the coupons on the shelf by the respective games with VOID written over them. I guess my local Best Buy got sick of losing money on this.


On the back of the coupons, it states under the Cashier Instructions: "Write VOID on the coupon and place in the register coupon media file".

I'm sure this is done to prevent there use again and it sounds as if they were advertising the coupon at your store but did not want someone to bring up the picture of the coupon from the shelf and try to use it (because you know someone would...)

I visited my local Best Buy and couldn't find their magazine that had the coupons, so I had to ask one of the employee's if he knew anything about these deals. Fortunately a huge stack was below one of the register areas and away we went to pick all games minus Rage, to my surprise they had all games in huge stock minus Rage that was sold out.

Just stopped by the Best Buy at Mid Rivers Mall here in St. Louis. Picked up Arkham City and Rage, had plenty of copies on display. The associate told me that had a bunch more in supply in the back they were hoping to get rid of by the end of the week. He also tried getting me to buy Mass Effect 2 cuz they had a good amount as well, but already have it. Let the good gaming begin for awhile!

Mostly since the low-watt Intel Atom cores came out during the netbook craze. Some of them use extended heat pipes instead of internal fans simply because they don't require that much cooling.

I ended up getting ME2 for the 360 and RAGE for the PS3 (ironically, the other versions for the opposite systems were sold out). I didn't get Bulletstorm....yet.

Not sure if I plan on keeping ME2 or just trading to Amazon for $10.

Is RAGE better on either system?

So in this magazine are there coupons for $20 off each version or just 1 with $20 off either version?

$20 off either version of the game but getting to used the coupon more than once is YMMV.

Wish I had a Best Buy near me to take advantage of Rage and ME2. :(

In the OP there's a link to get BB to allow the coupons to be used online. Go there, post & kudo the idea there's interest there & the more people that kudo the faster it'll happen.

Ever since I signed up for this my RZ pts haven't been showing up in my account, but when I try and add them myself they say it has already been issued to this account.

Any ideas?

Post on the BB forums they should have you covered.

Thanks. If the novella version drops to $40 this month, I'm on it.

that's the price/game that'll be the next AC...so + 250 replies 25,000 views LOL I think it'll happen in 2-3 weeks.

Do I have to buy the @Gamer mag for $5, or will the employee just scan a floor copy without making me actually buy it? I'll buy the mag if I have to, but I really could care less about the mag itself, just need the epic coupons. :D

You should subscribe for $15 so your not in the same situation month after month. It's $1.50 per mag & your gonna save the $ in the 1st issue right now.

If the BB employee doesn't rip-out the coupons, you could sell the mag to a friend for $2.50 and split the mag's price lol.

Or sell unwanted coupons throughout your sub for the same price & make money all yr long.

already own a copy of Batman: AC. can i give the coupon to a friend of mine? or will BB call shennanigans?

Probably going to go on Friday while I'm near my closest BB and try to buy a mag and get AC, Rage, and ME2 and flip ME2 and AC to GameStop.

All that you held dear, all that you held close... is washed away in a sea of distant memory. Life... is cruel. Of this I have no doubt. But life continues on... with, or without you. One can only hope that one leaves behind a lasting legacy. But so often, the legacies we leave behind... are not the ones we intended." -Queen Myrrah

You should care about the magazine, and support it. If stores sell way more of these games at the coupon price than the number of magazines sold, what do you think will happen? The deals WILL end. Don't think it will happen? I can promise you they are already taking notice.

Got copies of each except ME2 because I already have it. Surprised the store by me had stuff left...they NEVER do. Anyway, I certainly don't want to become a pariah around these parts, but c'mon...I can't believe so many people refused to buy the $5 magazine. That's not cheap...I don't know what it is, honestly, but it seems sort of wrong. Anyway, thanks OP, great deal!
