went to Best Buy in DeKalb, IL yest. They had "Fable The Journey" and "Tekken" stickered at 1 cent. I also found Mario Kart 7 (left 2) and the last "Kid Icarus" (sp?).

The manager and clerk didn't know what to do, but he was going to give me the ones marked as a penny, then did a price check on the others, verified 1 cent as the price, then said he couldn't sell them but I could just take them.

Not as quick and easy as it used to be but it was nice to get some BB penny guides again.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 CE is out of the system at Best Buy. My local store just gave it to me. I wish they had the other guides mentioned as I'm sure I would have got them also.

I'll probably go check my bestbuy. I saw 5 of the Final Fantasy XIII-2 CE today. See if I can get one. Thanks for heads up.

I wish Walmart and Target did pennied guides. There's a lot of good guides there and plenty of cashiers that wouldn't know the policy.

First ever Penny guide. Mass Effect 3 at BBY. They brought over 4 guys to try to figure out how to ring it up until one guy finally knwe what was going on. He just said "its your lucky day".
Thanks for everyone who posts in the thread.
They also had Uncharted 3. I looked at the OP and didn't see it.On my phone so maybe I missed it. Anyone know if it has hit a penny yet?

arrgh -my local BB had 5 FF13-2 CEs sitting on the shelf, and I got denied on the one I brought up. They told me to pay $20 and that the scan was "a glitch" - I said no, and then I saw them proceed to pull them all off the shelf. I was severely frustrated.

At least I didn't pull an IATCG and whine to corporate about it though. I'm hitting up my favorite BB tomorrow too, since they never pull there and I have substantially better luck at it.

I found Super Mario Land 3D and Mario Kart 7 at a BB today. Sup had no problem letting me have them. Afterwards I was chatting with another employee and noticed he was pulling guides, I didn't know others were pennied at BB. The rep pulled one Battlefield CE, one battlefield standard, two sleeping dogs, three transformers fall of cybertron. I took just the battlefield CE for myself as I had the others, a friend with me took one of transformers and sleeping dogs, we left the rest.

That's cool that they just gave them to you. At my best buy if u want a guide that pennied out u have to by the game that goes with that game. When I want one of the CE I just by a used game of it and I get the guide for free.

Figures my phone was dead when I went to BB the other day, so I couldn't visit this thread :/ I was staring right at the ME3 guide going I wonder when this old thing will get reduced (while it had full price listed under it from all the new lazy employees.)


Might have to go back today to check, and keep my fingers crossed :'/

I tried picking up a ME3 guide today. The worker called the supervisor over and decided to use a similar guide (CoD: Blops 2) to ring me up. I said no thanks, and only bought Bulletstorm and 2 PSP games for a total of $4.
