I haven't gotten this email either, I live in ABQ. I don't know if any of the Gamestop stores near the two Best Buy stores are having this sale. On the east side of town GS it at Eubank and BB is at Hotel Circle (across the freeway from each other). On the west side GS is in Cottonwood Mall at Coors Bypass and BB is at Ellison Rd (a few miles from each other).

No, fucking up on socal customers! I haven't received an email also.


So far every Gamestop within 5 miles from me has this sale, I talked to one of the workers and they said it might just be for the regular free members. WTF?

For what it's worth, the girl at gamestop said this sale was due to their proximity to Best Buy (across the freeway) and that they would be having it every weekend till some point that i don't really remember. I think she said the end of the year but that somehow doesn't make sense.

I got an email. Not every store by a best buy is having the sale. It seems like Illinois is 1 store per district based on what is posted. I believe they are the store with the lowest sales numbers as well.

To all the people asking about stores that are having the sale, including myself, I would just call stores and ask. No one here seems to be willing to share their email list....

True. Some that are closer to BBs than the others doing it are not doing it.

What are you talking about? The first few pages are filled with folks sharing the locations they received in their e-mails.

I am talking about the info inside the email, since I didn't receive one. And not just a specific location that is nowhere near me. You can't be that stupid...right?

The only gs near me doing a b2g1 is in the same shopping center as a best buy.

It's interesting a couple people are saying their gs is close to bb. I wonder if gs is actually smart enough to do that on purpose to compete with bb.

No one has a complete list so how can they share it. I'm sure posting of the specific locations were helpful to people in those area who did not receive the e-mails.

Yes, that was GS' intention. Has been going on for a while.

Slightly off-topic here:

I guess I haven't paid enough attention lately, but do all Gamestops have their used DS/3DS games cartridge only now? Sans cases/manuals?

DS games, mostly all cartridge only. 3DS should have cases (maybe on manuals).

Too bad, only store even remotely near me doing the sale. They were out of most games I wanted, but wanted to check it out again to be sure.

It probably depends on the size of the store. My two closest Gamestops still have cases for DS, 3DS, and PS2 games (even the <$2 ones), but I've been to plenty that have trashed their DS cases. Never seen a store sell 3DS games cartridge-only.

FWIW, when I was asking the employee at my local Gamestop whether or not they were participating in the deal (nope), he said that this deal wasn't really planned ahead of time and was more of a reaction to Best Buy's sales. He also said they were going to do something similar each weekend the rest of the year, though I don't know if that can really be believed.

When I asked if any other stores were doing the sale the manager said that only very high volume stores were doing it. They said it had nothing to do with bestbuy being near by since their beef with them is their trad in values with the 100%.

I dont know if I believe that, but since none of the other gamestops that are right next to bestbuys were doing the sale near me I dont really get the best buy explanation.
