I knew when I said this game has $19.99 written all over it within 3-6 months. I've actually seen it for $34.99 and i'm holding off for the Complete Edition.

That looks right. You don't have Gamers Club Unlimited, so your discount is $20 instead of $10. It's what I saw on the page.

Are you unlocked? 20 for RZ members and 30 for GCU members.

Yet ANOTHER reason to be a member if not already...

I wonder if it'll work for the clearance Collectors Edition for 360 that is already $35...


Does it not work with a Preowned copy?


Both the "Special Edition" and pre-owned copies of the game have different SKUs, so no. As far as I can tell, RZ offers like this only affect new copies of games.

You could probably all expect a Complete Edition to be released eventually, knowing 2K. They even did it with Mafia II. But if you don't mind that and can't wait any longer to buy the game, go right ahead.

It definitely pays for itself at $14.99 a year, if you're willing to seize more than one or two RZ offers.

EDIT: I just looked at the price tracker. Amazon.com is offering the game for the same price you'd get with the RZ offer. If you don't have RZ, you might want to consider Amazon instead, unless you prefer Best Buy over Amazon.

I never really saw the point in upgrading when it first came out, but I think it's about time. I'm going to sign up when I hit the store in a half hour. It seems like it's more than worth it.

Wow even after people bitched to BBY about this promo not being for PC last time they run it again and still exclude PC. I really starting to hate Best Buy. Doesn't help I haven't been able to issue my own reward certs since February either.

Can I use this with my welcome package buy 2 new games get one free?

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Possibly, but don't quote me on that. I don't know if it would stack with other sales; all I know is that @Gamer magazine coupons do. Not sure about RZ. If anyone knows better, please correct me on that.

It wouldn't be bad, if that actually was Best Buy's price. The site lists $59.99, unfortunately.

Gonna try to get BB to PM the $41.99 Max Payne Target has on sale. Hopefully I can get Max Payne for $12.
I'll let you all know what happens.

Personally speaking, I'd hesitate to put down any more than $15 for this game. I played a little of it, and was left less than lukewarm. I'm part of a minority in that regard, though; it's an otherwise good deal.

Lol! Speak of the devil. If that actually does work (I have my doubts), then holy hell, I don't think even I can resist.

Good luck with that. I see two things standing in your way. One, the coupon states that markdowns are taken from regular prices. And second, I can't imagine why best buy would allow a double-dip like that. Granted, there are managers out there that a) don't understand how to do their job, b) don't care, or a little of both. For your sake, I hope you find one of those managers.

In my experiences, Best Buy employees care about their job and know how to do it, but would actually grant me benefits anyway. I remember calling a store in Gresham, OR and an employee told me she would override the price on Twisted Metal for me because I told her about the RZ offer. No strings attached; she'd call other stores and ask them to hold it for me so I could pick it up. Ultimately, nothing came of it since no stores had copies of the game, but I was amazed nonetheless.

When I say I love Best Buy, I'm not using hyperbole.

As for this situation in question, I don't think anything will come of this. Most CAG members don't seem to have the pleasant experiences that I do, and even I think that such treatment would be a stretch to expect from my local retailers.

If it works for maxpower0965, I might be tempted to try it myself. I think I could convince Best Buy to price match for me.

Yeah, sadly. I would have grabbed that if I hadn't learned about it so late. You have no idea how small my Wii library is.
