Changed the OP

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.


Good job clarifying here and in the OP. I know you're trying to help and be thorough. Thanks.

Count me among those a bit disappointed that we didn't get a price drop/sale on Prototype 2, ME3 or Lollipop Chainsaw during the current coupon cycle (so far). I signed up for GCU fairly recently based on past deals, so I hope my faith that they'd keep coming wasn't misplaced.

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 :-)


If I remember right, the current Welcome Packet coupons expire early November (11/3 I think), so it'll have to come out before then. If you're picking up Assassin's Creed 3, that might be a good option. I'm not sure what other CE guides are coming out in that time frame.

Ugh, crappy coupons this month unless there are some amazing sales that happen. I really hope the lack of sales on the titles people were excited about this month (prototype 2, Mass effect 3, and Lollipop chainsaw) isn't a harbinger of the way BB will do things from now on.

At least there was the good deal with Witcher 2, even if that was hard to actually find and had nothing to do with the mag...

If this continues it won't be worth renewing, though.

As much as I love a great coupon month my trading has more than made up for the lack of good deals. After you trade in or buy $150 of used games everything is gravy. Still the best value but the coupons have stopped being uber-deals lately.

They probably started realizing the people who generally use these coupons aren't they type of people that will be pulled into the store by a good deal on a game and then spend more money on something else. I don't know what % of their profits come from media, but they must've been losing money on those $5 and $10 games.

Try the Arkham City guide. I bought mine from amazon though, I was planning on using it for trying to plat the game but i got the Catwoman cover (w/c is freakin awesome) so i kept it sealed:D

EDIT: Uncharted 3 CE guide is really nice but its probably cheap by now. Skyrim (the first print) is a great guide too.

What im playing: 
|  :ps3: Dark Souls II :pray:   |  :vita: Spenlunky |

Recently completed:
- Grand Theft Auto V ( Great game, one of the best this gen )
The Last of Us  ( incredible game. gets the "Most honest and appropriate ending ever" award and goty )

Only uniformed people jump at the base coupon of the $60 price but even with the last batch of coupons MSRP's dropped the prices on Lollipop Chainsaw, Prototype 2 & ME3 are still some of the best going. If these had been 2 for $60 games people would've jumped all over them. I love the $5-$15 games to but I've scored so much from GCU & the $15 has been more than recouped 1000X at this point everything is gravy. Not only that this time of yr is when BB kicks it in gear for all deals.

Is Dead Island any good? I am not big into sandbox games, then again I love Sleeping Dogs. Is this a game that would interest me? Also, I hear this game at release had a ton of game breaking bugs in this. Have these issues been remedied yet? Also, is the DLC worth being that it is the GotY version?

Thanks.

Maybe Borderlands 2? (although I guess the will probably have a hardcover GOTY guide eventually).

Workin on it

They actually had the Dead Island GOTY edition at my Best Buy for $20 last week and it wasn't even on sale. The price is probably YYMV but it might be worth checking out if you are interested and near a Best Buy.

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.


Lol I've actually had an employee tell me at checkout that I didn't have to rip out the coupon she had a sheet she could just scan there and use, I still bought the magazine but from the sound of it, she wouldn't of cared if I didn't , she scanned the sheet and I kept the coupon

Did people not pick up Sleeping Dogs during TRU 2 for $60? If you really want the game you can pick up a used copy from GS for $28 with that $10 off Coke code.

I was one of the ones who DID PM the 2/$60 deal from TRU at BB about 3-4 weeks ago. I just traded back my copy of Darksiders II from that deal a couple of days ago and I got rid of Sleeping Dogs about a week after I got it.

All in all, they paid me to play that game, Darksiders II AND Prototype 2 for a month.:D;)

As for the coupons in this mag, I see myself using next to none of them as well. Not that I really care, since I still have Skyrim and KOA:R to play through along with a bunch of other games and my next 'big' title I want is GTA V. That's likely at least 6 months off as of now. I'll keep my credit for now.

Dead Island is awesome! It's like a mix between Resident Evil and Borderlands. Two awesome series.

Is Dead Island any good? I am not big into sandbox games, then again I love Sleeping Dogs. Is this a game that would interest me? Also, I hear this game at release had a ton of game breaking bugs in this. Have these issues been remedied yet? Also, is the DLC worth being that it is the GotY version?

Thanks.



I hear you. I still can't believe I didn't jump onto that Batman: AC for $10 deal, because I was waiting for the GOTY edition. I'm not even sure if the Batman GOTY edition is even worth it over the vanilla version for $10.

Wow these coupons are about as bad as the CoD ones...

10 and 15 dollars off full price games?

It took over 10 weeks for me. On the other hand, it does seem they send them out in batches, so if you signed up in late July perhaps you still should have received it by now.

I feel as though we are spoiled. This mag paid for it self with one good month out of the year. The only month I didn't use a coupon was last month that's a damn good record.

These coupons will be good when Angry Birds goes on sale (it will) or when DEad Island drops a little more.

It'd be nice if Sleeping Dogs got a sale, though even if it did I doubt it'd hit what I want it to. I Redboxed it and beat it but damn, I'd like to have a copy to hold onto. And I'll bite on Dead Island GOTY if it manages to hit $10; it'd be a better option than buying the DLC, even considering I own the vanilla copy.

It was $20 universal up until last week. They thoughtfully raised the price $10 so we could feel better about using the coupon.
