I assume you mean online. The offers are different online and in-store. They usually do GCs in store and just do a discount online. They will price match online in store, but if you do, you can't get the GC as well. I tried with Madden. So, short answer, no.


Yeah I preordered online. Since the closest TRU is over an hour drive from me I'd have to try calling corporate anyway. I'll give it a shot but not expecting much.

Is it?
I didn't know... never heard of the price drop before now. (I mostly play Xbox so I'm not too keen on things as far as the PS3 goes.)
All I knew is Jak and Daxter Collection had been on my Amazon wishlist since release and just noticed the price drop. When I did a search for it on CAG, it was also listed at Best Buy for $19.99 but the price hadn't changed for GameStop and the other one listed...

My post is bad and I should feel bad. :/

But then he looked at my silver member status and how long Ive been a member and said I'll do even better and just issued me a $15 rz cert. LOL! Sweettttt

On the phone currently with "Roshanda" who is having a hell of a time giving me a $10 price adjustment. lol.

Looks like they are going to just mail me a $10 gift card, but we'll see.

Wow, okay, so "Roshanda" asked me to hold on a second, and then clearly answered her cell phone. She gets off at 3 if anyone else was wondering...

Hung up and trying again.

2nd time around I got a couple of southerners who were "shocked' to hear of Roshanda's antics. Good news though is that I have a $10 gift card in the mail.

When did TRU actually have it listed for $44.99? Remember, in order to get the PM, the actual discounted price has to be showing on the competitor's ad, and it can't be the result of a gift card reimbursement, or a combo offer requiring something else to be purchased.

I had to call twice for my pm too. First time the csr wanted me to bring the physical ad into the store. :roll: Got annoyed, hung up, and called again. No problems 2nd time.

Wish they'd just admit they don't know what they're doing, I can understand that. Misinformation and lies bug me though.

All versions of Darksiders 2 require Steam on the PC. The only difference between each version is what additional DLC is included; the base game itself is the same regardless of where you obtain it.

However, there is no Best Buy "Angel of Death" Edition of Darksiders 2 for PC. That promotion was for Xbox 360 and PS3 copies only, even though it was advertised at one point for the PC as well.

Is the 60 day pricematch with Best Buy silver from the date the GAME was ordered or when picked up? I noticed I ordered NCAA 13 on 06/17, but picked up on 07/12. What do they use for the 60 days?

EDIT: Anyone use the Silver RZ line for Pricematch? I tried and he told me to go to the store to PM....what the hell??!? I told him about their policy and he transferred me to nothingness.

It was their preorder price on the website.


So $44.99 was the pre-order price that was showing on TRU's website ONLY? Was it also showing on ANY of their weekly ads that were released prior to Madden 13 coming out? Because if not (and I'm pretty sure it wasn't), then I don't think it even qualifies for price-matching. As far as I remember, the ad that was released the Sunday before Madden 13 was released, it was at full price with a $10 gift card and the free strategy guide offer.

Then again, it really is BB's call, and if you happen to know an employee/manager at BB pretty well, or ARE one, then maybe you could've pulled it off, but I doubt it.

What the...? The second time around, you actually got TWO PEOPLE handling your call? Not simultaneously I hope, becasue that could be even more useless and annoying than "Roshanda." Oh, and thanks for promoting racism (not only here at this forum, but also at BB customer service) by the way.

Also, accepting a $10 GC from BB basically screws you on your sales tax return that you should've gotten when price-matching properly (unless you live in a state w/o sales tax).

so wait, the 30$ gift car from TRU, does that mean id have to get 2 games? because i really wanted to get lego batman 2 for a while, but if i can get a 30$ gift card with just that purchase, i might jump on it, not sure.

is it just one game, or does it have to be a pair with something else? the wording kinda threw me off.

it does not.

Toys R Us includes a $10 gift card with NHL 13 or a $30 gift card with the purchase of NHL 13 AND Sleeping Dogs, Madden NFL 13, LEGO Batman 2, OR Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.

to me, reading it as such, i cant get a 30$ gift card with NHL 13 *AND* sleeping dogs or; madden, lego batman, or transformers.

so i could buy 2 games and get it, or get one of the following (and just one) and get the same deal.

so upon reading it, i understood it as, i can get those 2 games together and get a gift card, or just one of the following after the pair, and recieve the same deal.

the language is not clear.

changing it to something along the lines of...

would be easier to understand.

The above statement doesn't make any sense unless you meant to say CAN instead of "CANT."

And the language IS clear enough in the OP. It basically says:

Buy NHL 13 and get a $10 GC
- OR -
Buy NHL 13, PLUS one of those selected games, and get a $30 GC

What's so difficult to understand about that? But yeah, when in doubt... ask and be sure.

Posting this here because of the BB sale on PS3 controllers.

Man I got a great deal at GameStop yesterday. I took in 2 PS3 dual shock controllers whose buttons were getting a little squishy and traded them in for $42 EACH!! Unbelievable. Base price was $30 and she gave me a 30% bonus for preordering a game for $5 and my power up 10%. So after the $5 preorder I got $79 for the two controllers.

I brought along my 3DSXL from a few weeks ago so I could get the free steel diver game (out of pilot wings). When she returned and resold me the DS she let me apply the $79 credit from the controllers. Just awesome.

Turned around and went straight to best buy and bought 2 new dual shock 3 controllers for $39.99 each. Basically got rid of some old, little bit janky controllers and got two new Dual shocks for the price of the tax.
