THIS IS NOT THE $10 FALL SPECIAL COD ISSUE & IS NOT INCLUDED AS PART OF THE GAMERS CLUB UNLOCKED SUBSCRIPTION

...

Mag ... free with $15 Gamers club Unlocked(GCU) subscription.


Lolwut?

Mag has to been scanned along with barcode for GCU booklet or printout from gaming kiosk.


OK, just wut here. Obviously I'm not keeping up. What is the GCU booklet? Why would I need a printout from a gaming kiosk? I've just been having them scan the coupons from the magazine. Seriously, what am I missing?

Did people not pick up Sleeping Dogs during TRU 2 for $60?


People for whom $30/game <> CAG probably did not, no.

I'm still shocked at how great that 2 for $60 deal was and I still haven't opened DS II (did pick up a cheap copy of DS1 at Sears that I wanna beat soon). For anyone who hasn't picked up Sleeping Dogs yet I highly recommend you do so asap.

Also as a GCU member I feel that it's a huge rip off to sell the other magazine for $10. I can see $5, and would gladly pay it, but for $10 I'm gonna have to figure out what coupon other than the PS Plus I would even consider using.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Might want to read the rest of the first sentence you quoted. He specifically says that (CoD edition) magazine is $10 and not included in membership. The second quote is for the magazine this month that is included in membership.

Was hoping for Dragon's Dogma, damn :(

Games that sell well won't show up in the coupons. BB is only concerned with moving stock of games that aren't.

FYI, Dragon's Dogma is getting DLC next year with a new underground area, new monsters, plus a hard and speed mode.

My guess is that the magazine is $10 so best but gets half and activation gets half. Makes sense to me. C'mon people, it's two big businesses with $100+ worth of coupons. Someone has to actually make money art the end of the day

The sentence in the OP actually does say the opposite of what is intended.

Using "and" makes it sound like he's still talking about "This..." where he was referring to the October issue.

"This is not..." the COD issue...

"and is not..." included.

Nope, he says (well, shouts):
"THIS IS NOT THE $10 FALL SPECIAL COD ISSUE & IS NOT INCLUDED AS PART OF THE GAMERS CLUB UNLOCKED SUBSCRIPTION"

Fixed:
"This is not the $10 Fall Special COD issue (which is not included in the Gamers Club Unlocked subscription)"

Still too many negatives, but you get my point.

I must have corrected it as I read it. Still, it's fairly clear if you read the entire OP.

Thanks for the info....


*Yawn* So what else is going on??? Is this the Best Buy??? I expected more but it seems like they are destined to be another competitor that tried but failed. First they steal a month from us and then they come back with mediocre sales/coupons. Thanks but no thanks... The interest was there but i will pass on another year of magazines and coupons that do not get used.

Are the coupons stating the price of the game will be X after it is applied, or are you placing the value on the game? If it is the first scenario, I will not be renewing because the coupons will make a sales drop invalid. The coupons will always carry the same value. Use the coupon and get the game for X price. I can easily foresee BB not issuing coupons for games that will be $9.99 or free, but only price X if coupon is applied.

Those are the prices after coupon. That is why they are so high now since we do not know if there will be any sales to stack with the coupons yet.

You know one can just be friendly to blueshirts and they may just let you use the coupon without buying the magazine, instead of having a chip on your shoulder.

I'm surprised that BBY hasn't shrink wrapped the magazines to prevent people using the coupons without purchase. They probably want people to be using these, to clear out stock.

Sleeping Dogs is $39.99. Therefore, it would be $24.99 after the coupon is applied. If the OP is adding the value himself, he needs to make this thread a wiki in order for the community to update the prices accordingly.

On BB.com MSRP is still $59.99. It's on sale for $39.99 this week though.

Nope - because then "this" could be "the $10 Fall Special COD issue which IS included in the GCU subscription." "This" isn't the $10 Fall Special COD issue, period - no qualifiers.

Are we all ready for the magazine to actually come out? :)

I'm still honestly hoping for an explanation of "Mag has to been scanned along with barcode for GCU booklet." I don't think I have a GCU booklet, and I'm starting to feel insecure about it.

I think he means if you go to subscribe, to get a free issue, it has to be scanned along with the GCU pamphlet that they use and give to anyone signing up.

I would rather have Enuf handle his own OP than misinformation like Sleeping Dogs being $24.99 after coupon being thrown about.

I'm sure the game will go back to regular price next week. I don't think this week's sale price will last all through October.

Just have some faith in Enuf. If for some God awful reason he doesn't correct his post remember, this is the internet. You can get that info elsewhere.

The gcu booklet is just the info booklet they keep and the counter there in the gaming section. Describes the subscription (basically the sales pitch) and has all the legal fine print.

You only need it when you are subscribing for the first time. Ring up the booklet and the mag and the mag will adjust to $0.00.

Just renewed a few days ago and had to walk the employee through it.

So Sleeping Dogs is 40 now, but coupon makes it 45. Doesn't make much sense there.

If it was 40-15=25 I might be interested, but will probably rent as heard little replay value.

It is only $40 cause of this week's sale which ends Saturday night. Going forward I don't see BB allowing much stacking with sale prices, they haven't done it since late July with SSX.

Changed the OP

OK, just wut here. Obviously I'm not keeping up. What is the GCU booklet? Why would I need a printout from a gaming kiosk? I've just been having them scan the coupons from the magazine. Seriously, what am I missing?

This is for people who aren't unlocked or know about GCU. Some of the 1st ?'s are
How much for just one mag?
How much for the sub?
How do I get the 1st issue to ring up free?

The last few threads weren't updated with plenty info & I'm hoping at this point there's no longer a need for tons of colors, links & bolding.

Sleeping Dogs is $39.99. Therefore, it would be $24.99 after the coupon is applied. If the OP is adding the value himself, he needs to make this thread a wiki in order for the community to update the prices accordingly.

The coupons aren't live yet thus $24.99 isn't possible at least no one has confirmed anything as of yet. Once the prices change I update the OP as usual not sure if you've seen my previous @gamer threads but I stay on top of the stacks. The OP & title get changed accordingly. I was the one who had to keep track of the B:AC one which was craziest month along with the 1st issue "THEY STACK!!!" when sale prices actually started working w/o override.

:drool::drool::drool: seriously... 9.99 for an additional magazine? i agree with what others said, if we were that big of COD fans than we most likely already have all of those games... i just don't see the point of it? also being an @Gamer subscriber, it almost feels like i'm being punished for them letting everyone know we won't be getting this magazine... weird marketing ploy BB... i'm not biting... your move.

Unless Dead Island GOTY drops to $10 after coupon, this will be the first issue for me where everything is a blank. The COD issue is a total bust as well, the separate $10 buy-in for the magazine itself makes it unlikely to achieve good price points for MW3 and Blops 1.

Sup Fellas. I was wondering if you guys could give me a suggestion on which Hard Cover Limited Edition Strategy Guide I should use the 50% off coupon for joining the Best Buy Gamer Subscription. I usually buy my Strategy guides from Amazon and I am totally stumped. Thanks :-)
