Hmmm, no mention specifically indicating the MW3 Hardened Editions are invalid with the $20 off MW3 coupons...will have to give it a shot to get one for $30


That would be a great deal considering all the DLC. I'm surprised they are still in stock.

I also noticed the new idiots working at BBY, took half an hour to buy ME3 yesterday w/ coupon and RZ cert.

Why not keep competent employees around rather than remodel the layout BBY?

1) Most of the gamers club people were disbanded and sent to other sections.

2) The other sections also have to now cover gaming, so you get people from appliances.

3) Some of them may have gone back to college.

I'm glad I'll be getting a new barcode, my card is shot!!! I guess the thing is like 10 years old though

I actually have my old RZ card still and it's a different quality plastic compared to the RZ Silver one they sent me(still trying to figure out how I got upgraded to RZ Silver).

The silver one is a heavier less flexible plastic and it's more heavily laminated.

Even with all of my trades last year before my ban I'm trying to figure out where I got $2500 worth of purchases on my account.

Although judging by the confusion some other CAG's are expressing in how they became RZ Silver for this year or more I'm guessing that BB is upgrading many people to give them a 'taste' of the program for that year or so.

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

yeah, I got it for some mysterious reason. I buy all of my stuff via trade in credit so it couldn't have been based on cash/credit card purchases. I suppose it could have been associated with GCU membership as I joined in Sept 2011 (got silver in March of this year). That's the only thing I could think of.

That's it. I had a mod confirm that they randomly give frequent visitors a year of silver to entice them for a year. I got mine at the end of last year 2011 through 2013.

Great perks with the 60 day PM window and free expidited shipping on all orders! Means I can order those $2 clearance DS games for my daughter and not have to pay $5 for shipping a $2 item...

Mine is up in Feb of 2013 and with the way I'm only trading in now I doubt I would make the $2500 to trigger another year, especially since the trade-in credit doesn't count really.

Is this in store? Any information on this would be helpful.

There's usually little spots on either side of the counter behind the trade-in registers in media in Best Buy.

In one of those spots is usually a stack of pamphlets advertising the Gamer's Club and the Gamer's Club Unlocked. There's two barcodes in the pamphlet, one that is for the freebie version and one that's for the paid version.

Yes, they apply (since June). The game reps in plaza Carolina seem more knowledgeable about it. You can sign up for @gamer and use the coupons.

any word on San juan? or any of the north area...carolina its a bit far from me...but i can still try to go there :)

So for anyone on the fence concerning Lollipop Chainsaw, It is campy fun indeed, I used the mystery 5$ BB coupon to bring mine down to 15$, well worth it I think.

The coupons work at the stores in Hato Rey and Rio Hondo, and I think some of the people there know how to sign you up, but I have had good experiences in Carolina more often. I used a coupon to get the prototype 2 ce in Carolina, with no problems, although I haven't tried to use the welcome packet coupons yet.

I just signed up for the Unlock today. I tried to get the COD mag as my free mag and it didn't take. As a girl was ringing me up one of the video game department guys came up and said that the COD mag wasn't one of the ones that was free with membership. I kindly said that I read online that it was saying it was and I know people who got it. He didn't doubt what I was saying, but said that was weird because it shouldn't. I suggested that could we at least try it, he said sure if it does it does... It didn't. :-|

For the record here how it was rung up,

Gamer Club Unlock
Reward Zone Card
COD Mag

While disappointed, I wasn't going to make a fuss about it. At least they were willing to try it. Guy asked me if I still wanting to sign up considering. I debated for a second, then he asked if I was just getting for the coupons. I replied yeah I was going to use the 15 off PS+ one. I figured 15 either way I may as well sign up for the Unlock then. He then asks so you don't care about the actual magazine. I said yeah. The guy then says well if you sign up and buy the PS+ right now, we'll let you scan the coupon in the book for the PS+. We can do that just not give you the actual COD magazine then just the regular magazine. SCORE!!

I signed up, they just scanned a coupon out of the COD book, and gave me my discounted PS+ and regular mag.:D

For the record the PS+ Coupon wouldn't scan right for me either and they had to manually adjust it.

Afterwards I then picked up Lollipop Chainsaw for 20 and my niece grabbed ME3 for 10 with the coupons out of the regular mag. I also priced matched a Target sale for copy of The Dark Knight Returns part 1 on Blu Ray to shave off two bucks off the Best Buy price. I was just going to walk next door and get it, but figured what the hell.

This is the best example of the customer service they need to keep doing. That one simple act made me from walking out of the store not buying anything to me not only dropping more money in the store, but also actually swerve me from going to a competitor. Stuff like this keeps me coming back.:lol:

Can anyone comment on the cloud storage that PSN+ offers? Is it any good? I'm interested in getting the coupon for the 15 dollars off so I can sell my ps3 for a new one.

Cloud storage works fine, but it's only a small part of the reason to get PS Plus. The real selling point is the "free games" but cloud storage is a nice feature. The cloud storage does not seem to work the same was as it does for Xbox Live (unless I have missed something). All game saves are done on the console and then uploaded to the cloud nightly (automatically) or you can manually copy to/from cloud at any time. I haven't seen a way to directly play from the cloud save like Xbox allows, but I may not know what i'm doing...

If you are just wanting PS Plus for a one time console transfer, a USB drive is a much more economical option.

Forgot to update the thread the other day, but this worked. I took the $49.99 CoD MW3 Hardened Edition (PS3) that I had picked up on clearance at $49.99 a week or so prior in to get a price adjustment for the $20 off coupon plus use a reward cert, and while it took some time because the customer service line was long and the first person didn't know how to perform the transaction, after a few minutes another employee came up, returned the original purchase, re-scanned the game, coupon and the reward cert and I got it for $19.99.

Even beat the amazing price I got on it a few weeks after it had come out late last year on clearance at Target, where I did a return rebuy on the same HE version for PS3 for $29.98 minus an addition $5 off $25 or more purchase card they were handing out.

SPLASH!

Not for nothing, but the new magazine, not the CoD one, is pretty terrible. The games are fairly decent, but the amount off is really bad. $10 off? $15 off? $20 off? Where's the $30 off? Where's the $40 off? Lame.

Great post. Now watch all these so called veterans here come and bash you with word like "entitlement" and for complaining.

I'm with you. These coupons sucks, and I can't see Best Buy dropping so much from sales so that the games are $10 after the coupons.

And no. You paid for a product that guaranteed at least $100 in savings with every issue, so you should expect some good deals right? They might as well tell you that you can save thousands of dollars off MSRPs and then give you coupons for $10 to $20 off these over-priced items, so that no one is able to take advantage of them.

The coupons had been great when the magazine started out. The past 2 months sucks. Only a last minute drop for ME3, which everyone was anticipating to pick up for $10 at the beginning of the magazine cycle, saves this month's magazine from being a disaster.

Not for nothing, but the new magazine, not the CoD one, is pretty terrible. The games are fairly decent, but the amount off is really bad. $10 off? $15 off? $20 off? Where's the $30 off? Where's the $40 off? Lame.

Copy protected saves can only be transferred via system-to-system direct transfer or via cloud save.

I haven't checked in awhile, so I'm not sure how many saves are copy protected or if this is even still being used for newer releases.

I've never had a problem with it, but my experience on transferring via USB is limited.

Only a couple days left to use the current coupons, but felt like putting my two cents in. Since they have the Ultimate Edition of Battlefield 3 for $60 that includes all the DLC, I tried using the coupon on it. It didn't work, but the guy had it overridden for me so I got BF3 with all DLC for $30.

Does anyone know if you get a new Welcome package for signing up for another year while currently subscribed, or do you need to let your current sub expire first? I would not expect it if I am a current subscriber, but you never know with BB.

Was lucky enough to find a Mass Effect 3 Collectors Edition PS3. Rang up for $9.99 AC with no override needed!!
