I was just about to post this as well. Seems if you buy the game in store on 9/18 only you get an additional $10 gift card making this $20 in gift card total. This puts Toys R Us as the best deal if you're not unlocked at Best Buy, or even ahead of it depending on if you'd rather have $20 credit at Toys R Us instead of Best Buy (I'm sure a lot of you are parents out there and this is one way to justify buying this game to the wife/girlfriend/mistress.)

I'm still sticking with Best Buy since I also get a 30 day window to price match.

I must be getting old. The thought of a Midnight release on a Tuesday just makes me feel exhausted :x

Edit: none in my area. I live in the fucking Silicon Valley and they don't have one opening on my side of the Bay. At least it makes my decision easy



There probably actually is one in your area. I'm on Ohio and it only shows like 5 stores on the site which I didn't believe made sense so I called the main store in my area to ask. The lady said yeah they were having one and she wasn't sure why it wasn't on the site :D

So yeah I'm getting my Borderlands 2 at midnight and so should you. :bouncy:

I might join the Gamers Unlocked club so I can get the B2G1 coupon. Since it's only $15 it seems worth it, but are any of the other perks worth the price of admission?

I'm pretty sure the B2G1 promo is for everyone, not just GCU members

Maybe he's speaking of the B2G1 New $39.99 and under from the GCU welcome packet.

But you don't get the preorder bonus at TRU. I'm getting mine through Amazon. Preorder bonus + $10 credit (but I have to wait for it to ship).

I guess I'm one of the few who rarely care for the preorder bonus. Yeah the free character would be cool, but Id rather get $20 gift card since my live is up and now Ill be able to get it 20 dollars cheaper.

Man, I know TRU charges high shipping but $15 to ship 3 games? That's just unbelievable.


Yeah, the sale kills the free shipping minimum price. If you're willing to buy six games that are the same price, you'd get two freebies and free shipping.

So what happens if you get Kirby and 3 $20 games? One free and one for $10, or would the half off apply and then you just get that one free effectively making the Kirby deal pointless?


I was able to do this online:
Kirby Collection $39.99
Mario Strikers Charged $19.99 $9.99
Alien Infestation $19.99
Prof. Layton Specter $19.99 $0.00

Be very cautious about ordering from TRU. Rule of thumb: if they can fit the items in a bubble mailer they will ship them in a bubble mailer...

and TRU has HUGE bubblemailers; during previous clearance and B2G1 free sales I've gotten as many as 10 games mailed in the same bubblemailer.

^ Of course this only matters if you care about the condition of your games

I've never once had a problem with a bubble mailer and games... and I've been shipping and receiving games for a while.

Yeah, I guess I'm a glutton for punishment because when they ran the NSMB2 deal a few weeks back I received it along with Pikmin 2 and some boxed Playmobil figures all in one big bubble mailer.
The Playmobil boxes were pretty much flattened and the corner of Pikmin rubbed it's way through the mailer and was scuffed up.

I wrote TRU a letter of complaint and didn't hear a word back from them.

Quick question that I doubt anyone has the answer to, but i'll try anyway. What's the chances if I go to TRU tomorrow and take advantage of the 2 $10 gift cards, that my game will contain the Premeire Club. I know it's only for "pre orders" but I highly doubt TRU got pre order copies and retail copies, any input is appreciated...

It's physics. I handle lots of games (I'm not going to put my business out there) and receive UPS/USPS/FedEx shipments every day.

If you throw multiple games in oversize bubble mailers they are going to move around. Discs are going to become loose. Shrinkwrap is going to tear. Cases are going to crack.

If you use a form fitting bubble mailer or fold over the excess you'll be fine. The bubble mailers TRU use are like bubble bags. They are huge. They'll throw multiple games in and just seal the top (not fold it over). This means the games move around. I have had multiple problems with them.

Not that I expect anyone to have trouble PMing Frys for Kirby's Dream Collection, but I was able to PM without any trouble at all.

I did. The cashier gave me trouble because I printed a copy of the ad (I don't get a newspaper and didn't want to go to the store for an actual copy of the ad, so I found one online and printed it. I did call customer service before and asked if it was acceptable and was told that as long as the offer was for in-store prices it'd be fine), he then called the manager over who said that the printed ad was fine. He then gave me a pretty annoying lecture that they normally didn't price-match from Fry's because there wasn't one in a 25 mile radius :roll:.

Anyways they sold it to me for $30 so at least they honored the deal this time, very surprised since I've been unable to get them to honor their own sales prices or Gamer Mag coupons before. That 25 mile radius rule seems pretty lame, if BB can't price match it because the closest store few miles outside the store's radius maybe Fry's should look into expanding a bit :lol:.

Maybe not an earthshattering deal but I grabbed Dead Space 2, Fable 3, and Metro 2033 today for $35. from TRU. Already played Metro but it still ebays quite well. In the end I foresee getting to play DS2 and Fable for about 10 each.

I've used that BestBuy offer buy 2 get 1 free sale on used games (UC3, Infamous 2 and Dirt 3 for PS3), but... I have ordered this on 09.21. (friday), and my order has not yet been sent. Because this is my first online order from BB, is this to be expected from them, or should I be worried?

When I go to order status, it just says: "Order In Process".

Appreciate any responses. :)

Don't know if this only at the Kmart I went to but they were having a buy 2 get 1 free on all Xbox 360 games. I got Madden 13, Fifa 13, and NHL 13. I asked the cashier about it and she said all Kmarts should have the deal. The deal was announced on the xbox game case but, not really a surprise here, when she rang them up the deal wasn't showing up. She had to bring a manager to override. So it might be YMMV. This was in Southern California.
