I tried every combination of this and this does not work. I tried the proper order as stated where steelbook first then CE and just rings up regular price. Tried it reverse way and regular price. I tried this with and without price matches and Nada. This is YMMV for a reason but what a waste of time and gas at multiple stores this was for me.

It's working here in NJ. My brother in-law just got it too. He said first time was game then steelbook, and it didn't work. When he asked the bb employee to reverse it to steelbook then game, it worked. The employee then said he was going to get it for himself since there was only one steelbook left. My brother in-law also got some double poster(?) too. I think this was the Cherry Hill store.

This was again the 360 version. Also, we are both unlocked members, not sure if that means anything.

I was all ready to try this at my store, CE in hand...but no steelbooks were in stock (the employee looked in the back for me). :bomb: Oh well.

There was a 360 CE and steelbooks still available but I didn't even try to attempt it mostly because that shit had the spider wrap security and I can't take the dents on the box.

Where do they usually have the Steelbooks? Are the integrated with the games? I took a gander today, they had the game but no steelbooks.

I remember seeing some behind the little desk/register in the gaming department, but you might have to ask an employee to look in the back; AFAIK, they aren't integrated with the games.

They might just be on the rack with the other games, it is for my store. But they aren't packaged together.
Ex: The PS3 steelbooks are on the top racks and the game itself is on the bottom rack which is weird.
It's suppose to be alphabetized so it might be where all the "P" titled games are chilling on the display racks.

Just came back from BB that has a x360 steelbook and CE. Scanned steelbook first, then CE, still doesn't work. Still came up full price $79.99.

Did you try price matching it to GS?
I thought that was key to getting the $39.99?

Someone mentioned PM is not even necessary to get the $39.99 price. Did I do this wrong? :cry:

That was not the key for me, I knew nothing of the GS price when I bought mine.

Price matching for me, co-worker, and brother in-law was not necessary. All three of us had luck when the steelbook was scanned first.

All were 360 and purchased in NJ, two in Mt. Laurel BB and one in Cherry Hill.

I've been following this thread to see if anyone else had luck, looks like just a few.

Sorry this was so YMMV, I would've never added my two cents.

I tried it at my Best Buy today in Riverdale, NJ and had no luck. Ended up caving and just purchasing it for $60.

Surprised this post is still alive. Sorry more people could not benefit as I was simply looking at getting the $20 adjustment and when I got the game for $40 cheaper, I just could not let you all not know about this glitch. As many have stated, I did not have the steelbook when I simply tried the pricematch of Gamestop to try and get my $20 back (for the 360). I was trying to get it for $59.99 and it somehow rang up $39.99 and some people are successful with and without the steelbooks. I did not try to purchase the CE and steelbook from scratch and when they put in the GS price and then scan the UPC, this is when the game rang up as $39.99 for me. There was no return and repurchase or anything. I don't know if that helps clarify things?

This is a dead deal, but no, the steelbook rings at 49.99 I believe.
