Didn't realize Homefront had an online pass. You'd think when a game does as bad as it did they would just make the online pass free since the only way anyone would buy this game was if it was used for a super low price.

Went to BB and was able to pm the Darkness 2 tweet! It will require an override for the pm and another one for the coupon to be applied.

Used does NOTHING for the publisher, so the only way for them to make money off the super cheap used sales is to ding people for the pass.

I understand that, but honestly I'm probably not even going to spend the money to play the online.

They did do a smart thing though because I think you can play up to level 5 online then need a pass to go higher.

Kinda get you hooked if you like it sort of thing. Easier to say no to something before trying it, because if you try it and like it then they get ya.

The coupon probably didn't work because you're supposed to buy Metroid Other M AND Sin and Punishment 2 for the $30 to come off.


As another posted above, you only had to buy 1 per Mike and Kyle on the BBY forums.

Wow, you actually managed to get both a PM and use of the coupon? :applause:

I was glad I even managed to get the PM. Used trade-in credit from a Target clearance game during their mobile coupon week and got it for free (excluding gas I suppose).

Yeah, I got it 3 times too! ;) It helped that they did it last time. I just asked if they could do it again for my last 2 coupons. I got 3 copies total (1 to play, 1 for my bro, and one to keep sealed with my sealed Darkness 1 game).



EDIT: Heads up: double RZ points 5/5 and 5/6, no coupon required.

I'll have to try that next time, though I could only imagine 3 specific BBY reps in the area being willing to even try. Wish I could find a decent copy of Darkness 1, anything I've ever found at Gamestop has been completely destroyed.

I'm debating if I am going to use my resistance $20 off or $10 off 29.99+ used coupons. I would like to just buy something and trade it back in to make some credit, but I don't see many options.

Just rolling off that on this new page; i wonder what they do with the statistics of the coupons. Say 'this coupon was used by 80% of subscribers and 70% of single issues sold while this coupon was used by 10% of subscribers and 5% single issues sold. I would think they look at that stuff when inventing the month's ahead set of offers.

So while it stinks we didn't use the darkness or yakuza coupon, i would hope it helps us in the long run of what to offer in coupons and what weekly sales they put out to help savvy shoppers.

Just my two cents. This program is still new on my eyes and quoting iatcg will guaranty me at least one reply :)

I know that's right. If it was $20 or less with coupon, I would've snagged it. Oh well, I have write a few games to play now.

Have you guys found a use for these coupons:

$25 off Tritton Xbox Wireless Headset

It's been $55 for about a week now about 50% off the MSRP so that's pretty the deal for it.

Maybe one of these years if we get a 3D tv, we might qualify for silver.

get the credit card & use it to pay bills & buy gas you'll be silver in months. Also, try to buy as much Target/walmart/Sears...stuff @ BB using price matches that's what I do.

Actually it was clarified on the BB forums that it was either or and you did NOT have to buy both to use the coupon.

But was it every fixed in the system?

I have the credit card and use it as much as I can, but I try to buy a lot at Target using their credit card, since you get 5% off instantly before tax.

coupons should expire today there's also a 2X RZ point deal 5/5-5/6 that should stack with the 2X point for GC so now would be a time to grab a sub for some points.

5% off a $60 game is only $3 & the basic pm will usually be at least to $40 w/i 30 days(more like 2 weeks recently). Look at the Max Payne deal people will end up with no worse than $40 & $20 credit on day 1 & the ability to trade it in for $30 since they'll have it on day 1. Doing this 3 times gets you $60 credit & at least $60 cash back vs the $9 savings(tax not included since state tax varies so much).

At least two of the May coupons are repeats from prior months. One of them being the $10 off a $29.99 or higher pre-owned game. I forget the other repeat, but I know I've seen at least 1-2(or more) of these before.

Sounds good to me. Just started using the magazine not too long ago, but I'd definitely pick up AC:R for <$20. (Missed the spring break sales)

Kind of a long shot here but I just beat Homefront and started with the multiplayer, which was surprisingly pretty good. My question was if anybody had an online code that they didnt plan on using and could throw my way? I cant bring myself to spend $10 for a multiplayer code when the game cost me less than $2
