Nah, you're fine. You actually realized your mistake and owned up to it, unlike IATCG.

Just got back from BestBuy and they had a few of the collectors Ed. Guides bundled with games. There was a sign buy a game get guide for free. My bestbuy has been doing this with all guides that have deleted skus. I saw RE 6 and Mass effect 3 Final Fantasy Uncharted 3 collectors Ed. Guides. I don't know if all the those guides have deleted skus. No one around to check price.


That would be so cool if that became the norm.

And to the person asking before about Skyrim, it is the vanilla guide that was pennied as the revised one is still online and in-store, but GS is no longer buying it (de-listed in their system) so whatever is in the chain now is all there will be.

I don't really buy guides and first time getting penny guides, so don't know what they were selling at 'earlier'. But they both jumped out at me since I didn't see either of them on the OP's list. Grabbed those suckas quick.

Don't see SWTOR on the OP's list either.

Had an amazing haul at (2) GameStops today but more importantly I may have found out that Best Buy penny guides might be back.

I went to a store that I had never visited before and I remember someone had mentioned that it appeared as if there store did a pull. So I came across the Witcher 2 Guide and thought to check it as it was the oldest one I saw. Sure enough it rang up a penny. And that's where the good news stops for me.

The CSR tells me that's amazing and if there are anymore to grab them. I run back to the guides and grab the other Witcher 2 guide. She rings both up and as I'm about to pay, she says that she should probably check with her manager. Manager is a complete *!@#hole and tells me that he can't sell them to me or they will get fined. He goes on to say that it's obviously a mistake because Best Buy wouldn't sell anything for a penny. I tell him I've bought guides from other stores and online for a penny in which he responds that I probably got a lot of people fired. So I say well how about if you just let me have them. He tells me he can't do that and they have to be sent back. I relented as I could tell he wasn't going to let me have them. First time that I ever got denied at a Best Buy.

In any event, hope the penny guides are back because I know my local stores won't have a problem selling them to me for a penny.

So lame. I finally found a place that had the Zelda Skyward Sword guide, but the employee said I have to renew my powerup membership for another year if I wanted that guide for free. Hell nah. I just renewed it a month ago.

I went to a Gamestop today to see what they had and almost every guide that was mentioned in this thread was there. The guys working there get enough grief shoved their way so I figured I'd ask him if they were allowed to sell them. He said his DM is pretty strict about not letting them sell them, so he couldn't.

Sucks, but what are you gonna do. I'd rather walk away without buying any than stress the guy out over something that he doesn't have any control over.

I remember one time at a BB I had a pretty big haul which I put in a cart. At the register they ended up calling a manager over and I was denied. However, I asked if I could just take one since I already did a lot of their work pulling the guides and he let me pick :lol:

The scum at SD killed the guides in under 3 minutes. I was here right when the deal was posted, in under a minute. By the time I hit checkout shipping option was gone.

Thanks for the heads up. Guides being stickered for a penny is certainly a good sign (meaning they actually scan for a penny if they weren't pulled). Does anyone have a complete list?

Yeah that would be nice if the guides are scanning for a penny again. It's too bad it looks like they were already removed from the bestbuy.com

I doubt that's the case. A few months ago, I saw a $.01 tag for Dragon Age II, and it was removed from the system. First and last time thus far that I've seen a $.01 tag.

And you said, "Actually, I did. Why don't YOU give me something I *didn't* expect?" She did check you out.

I kid. Their nose rings always ruin it.
