(Sway and I already posted this in the stickied thread up top but I made a new thread as I felt this was too good of a deal to not get more notice.)

On Tuesday, September 18 ONLY, :360::ps3: Borderlands 2 will receive another $10 gift card in addition to the $10 gift card previously mentioned in the ad when you purchase it in store.

This is the best deal if you're not Unlocked at Best Buy or if you'd rather have store credit at Toys R Us instead of Best Buy. I don't believe this will have the Premier Access Club included.

I wish you could PM this easily at Best Buy. I am going to try still I think, but from what I hear it isn't that easy.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

It's up to the manager of the store and how desperate they are on that day to hit numbers.

I'm going to try to price match at Best Buy as well.

1st. $20 GC from TRU. If that doesn't work...
2st. $15 Coupon from Kmart. And as a last resort...
3rd. $10 GC from TRU

$20 in Reward Certs plus $20 in GC would be EXTREMELY nice.

If you're going to try & pm @ BB I'd suggest NOT DOING it in the gaming area since it's already YMMV(Tues only really sucks) & they will definitely quote that they're already offering $20 for the game. Even I won't be able to get this matched @ my goto BB since the manager that does it is also in the GC. But I can't complain after scoring Persona 4, Risen 2, Amazing Spider-man, Lego Batman 2, Darksiders 2, Max Payne 3, Ghost Recon Future soldier & Transformers FOC for $240(via TRU 2 for $60 pm).

@ aShufflinZombie
Wouldn't $60 cash/credit for the game & $20 credit beat 1, 2 or 3 even w/o the $10/$20 GC? Not to mention the $20 cash/credit you'll get back via pm. For an end result of $40 + 420 credit.

Unless you have the ulimate loot edition @ GS I'm completely confused...
1- You know there's a 110% Trade in bonus @ BB?
2- You know there's a GS to BB flip thread?
3- You know GS has a b2g1(all games now limited stores/b2g1 $15 or less Wii games?
4- You know there's like 8 games which you could easily turn $60 @ GS into much more(over $100) @ BB?

If you've answered no to any of these ?'s you're not yet fully efficient CAG. But do what works for you.

Is this through email or will there be a print ad. My bestbuy will usually price match, as long as there is an actual print ad.

I meant as in worst case scenario, I would go there.

1. Yes. 100 plus unlocked (10)
2. Yes. Burned through almost all GS credit.
3. Yes. And if I flip Dora or something I will look like a weirdo.
4. I have already flipped all the higher value games to Best Buy and don't want to risk a ban.

How did you manage that?

4. I have already flipped all the higher value games to Best Buy and don't want to risk a ban.

I did too but I still used cash b/c some of the flips combined with my extra 25% off coupon made it really easy to score points @ GS & BB on top of the credit. I went from 21,000 PUR points to 64,000 in a week. Granted I have my sister's, mom & girlfriends ID's so all the games are 12X vs 3X.

How did you manage that?

TRU 2 for $60 PM @ BB. The TRU is right around the corner from BB & the store manager there knows I won't hesitate to drop $300-$500 on games depending on the sale & he's not gonna let me spend it next door either. So I brought the TRU ad in & said "if you're matching I'm buying" he went away for 2-3 minutes & came back & said your good. I picked out all the games they had that I wanted, brought them to CS & he & one other supervisor helped the cashier w/overrides. Funny thing is they rang it up crazy by charging me $59.98 for 1 game & $0.01 for the 2ns. they also did each set on a different receipt.

I saw lots of CAG were able to get the same pm @ BB but only for the games listed in the ad, I'd think others could've gotten the same match as me but would've needed to be willing to spend at least $250.

Get it from Toys R Us today, take the Toys R Us copy and return it to wherever your pre-ordered from (after you've claimed Premier Club/ Arena codes of course).

I thought the promo gift card is good until 02/02/2013.

If the last two COD releases at TRU are any indication they've had great deals.

For black ops it was buy one $59.99 game get either a $15/$20GC (Can't remember which) but if you bought two you got a $50 GC and they also gave out free t-shirts.

For MW3 it was I think $20GC and a free replica MW3 jeep.

So if you are planning on picking up Borderlands 2 with the intent of using the Gift Card on Black ops 2 I'd say that is a pretty good plan

I was able to PM this at my BB (Irving, TX #1032) today.

I had called the store manager yesterday and he said no problem. He's not working today, but he said to just drop his name (Cameron) and they'd put it through.

They didn't even bother with the GC, they just took $20 off the game.

I did take a print-out of the TRU coupon with me.

Photo included.
