It looks like BB did a pull. I went in today and they had organized the guides and probably at least a third of them were gone.

Darksiders II guide pennied at GameStop.

Funny that I found out while returning it. CSR did the return then just gave it to me because it took a bit to do the return since the guide was pennied.

INTERESTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for those who can't get free guides, could this be a workaround

Buy a guide that might be pennied soon, and as soon as it is pennied do a return and possibly get your money back and keep it for free

To add an addendum to my post yesterday regarding missing the guide drop, I did miss it at my local store. I'm out of town today and visited some other gamestops and some old friends were glad to take care of me. I only asked for one of each though there were plenty. I missed out on anything not scene in the above photo, still trying to figure out what I missed besides Skyrim and PS All Stars, the two I wanted most.

Just everyone in general. Our store had about 40 that got pennied out.

I even found some Dragon Age 2 guides that were pennied out months ago and never thrown out.

What did you take for yourself? I only take one of each, only dupes if a friend wants one specifically. If they want/need one and there's only one available, it's theirs.

OP is updated. I really didn't want to go back out yesterday, even knowing that I would get them. I guess I am just lazy. I might run by today and see if they haven't pulled them.

Well, I've been blacklisted from a Gamestop. A few days ago I went in and bought up a few pennied guides. The cashier was adamant about not selling them. So I called corporate and spoke to someone who approved my purchasing them. Today when I went, the same guy was there and would hear nothing of it. He treated me with absolute contempt. Made my stomach turn. I won't be going back.

You're not going to get much sympathy around here with a story like that. Calling corporate is how the deal gets killed for everyone.

The first rule about penny guides is that you don't talk about penny guides.

The store has no right to sell them to you and calling corporate just screwed anyone who might have gotten them at that store because they were friendly with a store rep. Now that you called, that store was eyeballed by the DM/RM and the store manger probably was read the riot act about selling/giving away penny items.

All you did is screw yourself and everyone else around you. Good job.

Once in a while when there is a guide I'd like to pickup I just go by my local gamestop and ask if a single copy is available. The manager at my local gamestop is pretty awesome. He knows that I know about penny guides and he says he isn't suppose to sell them, then he asks me if I could help him out by throwing one away ;)

I see. That was my mistake. Well I won't be calling corporate about this ever again. The person I talked to on the phone knew nothing at all about pennied guides, and I'm sure she already forgot about me and this incident.

Had to do a surprise office review visit out of state. Asked around the office if there was a gamestop nearby. Sure enough it was like a remote cabin in the woods. Long story short . I chatted up the manager during my lunch break and she let me grab these from the back. I love gamestop managers who are flirty and could care less about pennied items. Dadly no LB 2 or DS II. They too had 20-25 copies of H4 AC III and COD BO II HC. How many copies did GS order?

Talking to me? Of course I'm not Cheapest. Do I really come off as being like him?

Now that I think about it, it was Cheapest that was blamed for the stop of pennied guides in Best Buy. I know now that calling Gamestop wasn't a smart thing to do, but I don't think talking to some random grunt on the phone will have a serious impact. Still, I won't try it again. Better I miss out on 90% of the pennied guides rather than having everyone miss out on 100% of the pennied guides.
