:lol: I don't even think I spent $1000 at BB in a year and even if I did it was all in gaming credit, which DOES NOT usually count towards the $2500 for Premier Silver. So unless they change it to where gift cards count towards this idea of yours, I'll stick to my regular GCU. Thanks.:booty::razz:

I already thought of that which is why in the link there's more than 1 way to get access to the GCU Silver status w/o spending $1000 either just pay $30. But for 2X as much for reg. GCU the benefits are greatly improved the fact that you'll have more control of what deals you what & what games that makes it easy to stack stuff. How many times do you see people wishing completelyy seperate games where involved in a specific deal? Well, that all changes & if your savvy CAG having more control over the deals in advance will definitely work in your favor. I would never agree to spend even more money unless the benefits were great, right now the GCU is great & $15 a yr is small but if the program was to offer more similar deals 10X more often wouldn't you have interest?

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.

got to get rid of coupon. which of these games has the most monetary value ie trade or sell? I was too late for Dead island assuming a store had it.

I don't recall seeing any of these last time I actually went through the used section of several stores.

Nope. I'm a real cheapass and I'd want the additional bennies without paying a dime more over the $15 level.:booty::razz:

It will be on the RZ account page.

1-866-RZ-PREMR (1-866-797-7367)

It is pretty nice...basically a direct line to an English speaking CS rep. They are very nice and if they do not get it right the first call you almost always get a bonus cert (my experience). Plus if they cannot figure it out they will just issue customer satisfaction points to get it right. It has been almost as useful as the 45 day PM window for me.

I called and bitched about my points expiring and the guy said he will send a request to make me silver. He also said I should get 250 points (rounded up from 162 expired) in my account. Nothing has changed in my account. Hopefully everything goes through, but I am not holding my breath.

:ps3::360:Dead Space 2 is only $7.99 ($7.19 w/ Unlocked). It's not available for shipping, so in-store only. If it doesn't ring up at that price, just have them match their website. And don't forget about the B2G1.

If u can find a GS that still has it, Rock Band Unplugged is $10 new, $3 used there. One of the best games on the PSP IMO. Not many songs to download but nice selection on the disk.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

What your trying to do isn't exactly called price matching more like buy something get something free matching. :D Its up to the employee/manager if they will do it, doesn't hurt to ask.

I also want to add, BB doesn't do price matching on used games though.

It does so no need to PM. I bought one last week. I didn't get the 10% off cause they were having issues but I wasn't going to quibble over 80 cents.

Question. A few hours ago I ordered 3 games online with the b2g1. My order status says two of the games are in the process of being fulfilled. One of the games has backorder status. I'm worried that I will forget about this and not need / want it later. The backordered game was not the "free" game. Can I cancel the backordered game? How does that work?

the 10% that stacks for gamers unlocked members? Yeah it worked for me when I ordered online a few days ago for store pickup. What I don't know is if the 10$ off pre-owned coupon works or not.

it's cool you can be a real cheapass but in order for you to enjoy these deals for many many months to come the GC program must remain strong thru new release deals too there has to be a healthy mix or all the deals go away or become blah. Nobody wants to see the coupons return to "markdowns taken off regular prices" again.

My goal is to get BB to offer the DOTD's that they had last yr all yr long, the current $5-$20 game deals, 20% discount of all used gaming products, 10% off all gaming items, $10 extra pre-order credit(titles that we choose), $20-$30 extra credit for expensive CE/LE/SE & early/extend access to deals like including Black Friday.

Everyone will have deals galore the only problem will be finding the time to play them & having money to buy them(but with good credit & trade in deals they should help).

One of the main reasons we're able to get these deals via coupons stacking with sale prices is b/c of the post made on BB forums page & the interest that was generated there. Funny thing is with the # of people that complain about the used game stocks @ their local stores you would've thought that more than 33 people would've voted to get the coupons to work online. So I guess all the complainers are the minority.

thought I was good to go after finding a third game but apparently there is a limit of 1 copy per unique title. was going to get 2 SR3 (pickup) and Twisted Metal (ship to store).

SR3 is $44.99 pre any bonuses. can someone suggest some games? I'm looking for the most "value" (SR3s will be sent to Amazon) as it will likely be traded/sold.

I'm going to check out the stores that show up as having SR3. Again I'd like some options for the third but I guess Skyrim will be the default third if I don't find MW3.
