Got denied at the Orange, CA location for trying to use the 10$ coupon on MW3. "Off regular Price" got thrown at me... Hate how it varies from store to store, they should just accept it everywhere!!!!! :( Guess ill try another store later this week.


The computer takes it off automatically once you've given your rewards zone number and they total it. At least that's what happened when I did it. They shouldn't be able to deny it.

You're SOL, sorry dude. The used price hasn't dropped, so there's nothing to price adjust.

they don't price used games anyway they're classified as "refurbished" & there's no wiggle room I've tried. My BB bend rules for me but even this was a no way, no go no time.

I was going to get a Vita but stupid Sony didn't lower the price like I had anticipated

LOL since that's not how Sony works couldn't understand why people really thought there was any chance. They bundle at the SAME PRICE 1st then down the line drop the price.

Thanks for responding. Do you get that packet at the store or is it delivered via mail/email?

Vote here & we can get coupon packs avail. in-store vs mail. I'm tryin to get the whole process avail. in-store so it'll never be a chance that we miss a deal by not having a coupon etc. OP of last months(May's @gamer has links to where you can vote to fully max the gamers club.

I got the same welcome package, but I did wonder about that digital title coupon. Does that mean DLC cards, point cards, or both?

It probably means 10% off one of the DLC packs they sell via those touch screen kiosks they have in the gaming/media department.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

I got $1 off a $10 PSN card with the 10% off digital purchase coupon back in April, it required an override though.

The $14.99 max is really weak. It's not like $5 off a $50 PSN card is that much.

Thinking about trading in
Skyrim
Battlefield 3
LA Noire
Blur
Tropic 3
Super Street Fighter IV
Gears of War 3 (Maybe)
Just Cause 2
Saints Row The Third (Maybe)


I'm not sure if you're a PS+ Member, but starting today Just Cause 2 is free from the PSN, along with 11 other games. (Virtua Fighter 5, inFAMOUS 2, Little Big Planet 2, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Saints Row 2, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.) I think the remaining free games are PSN only games, so I didn't list them.

Traded in three games today. Need For Speed: The Run, Need For Speed Shift 2, and Singularity for $44.10 after 110%. Paid $6 for Singularity, paid $0 for The Run ($20 Target coupon), and paid $7 for Shift 2 from BBV. Good trade in today.

Wow, ended up trading in 116 games for a grand total of $890. Three separate transactions, but great way to clear my backlog and get some $ back.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

It amazes me how many games some people have. I don't think I've owned more than 20 at once and that seems like a lot to me. Granted, I've been cycling through games somewhat rapidly after becoming a more active CAG, but still...some people have some crazy collections.

If I counted up all of the games I've had since the Atari 2600(my first system), I've probably had more than 1000 and likely double that considering all of the ones I've sold, rebought and tried to rebuy over the years.

Back in the 2600 days though, I was like kids nowadays and I kept the games cart only.:-#:cry: But from the Genesis/SNES era on up, I tried to keep my games in mint/complete condition and would actually nitpick on condition when I lent one to a friend(and I still do now:-#).

You have to be man. You never know when you'll want to play those games again. Shit, I probably owned close to 400 since I started gaming. I started gaming at age 2 with the Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis. After that I owned a Playstation, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, PS2, PS3, PC, and Xbox 360. My sister owned the Xbox, Dreamcast, and Gameboy Color. If I could count all of the games I owned/played it would be around 400 games total. If you add in cell phone games, that number would go up as well.

For anyone who is looking to flip some credit from TRU to Best Buy. I found on clearance
PS3 Bakugan Defenders of the Core 9.98 (Base trade in @ BB $9)
Wii Jimmy Johnson's Anything with an Engine 9.98 (Base trade in @ BB $6)

Since they are under 19.99 they qualify for the b1 get 1 40% off
My total for both games after taxes $17.44

Trade in credit after bonus and gamers unlocked was $31.50

I also saw de Blob 2for 9.98. (base trade in @ BB $5) Can get slightly above a straight trade of credit when paired with another 9.98 game that trades for $5 base

Going to post this in a couple of other threads because I know how posts can get lost in the large threads

It's been said a few times in this thread that it will be until the end of the month. It looks like it got extended, I guess Best Buy likes the sale too.

Modern Warfare 3 at 24.99 required an override from a manager, so I'm sure a lot of people are going to face opposition if they read the fine print. They didn't question me about it, but I figured they would.

I redeemed the voucher in my Reward Zone, the employee scanned my card, then the UPC, still came up at $34.99 before tax. Then she voided it out, and I handed her the sheet I printed it out (has the same barcode on the sheet as your Gamers card), she scanned that first, then the game, the same. Tried it in different order on another computer with and w/o card and still nothing. So it looks like Best Buy isn't intending for these items to be used with their sales like the Turtle Beaches.

When I got MW3 on Sunday it rang up at $34.99, then the guy put in my RZ number some popup showed on his screen and it took off $10 after he put yes then it went to about $26 after taxes. Don't know why it isn't working for others.

I'm sure, similar to the Turtle Beaches, it was only available one day until they fixed it in the system.
