This has been $59.99 how'd you get it for $29.99 when it just now dropped to $39.99?


Lollipop Chainsaw was $59.99 for about a week of the coupon validity period but has been $49.99 in recent weeks.

Has anyone here had success best buy to refund or price match the Mass Effect 3 CE. My receipt says 29.99 after a $20 coupon, no mention of the 59.99 price, just a coupon match.

Well has anyone had success in general price matching best buy after using the gamer coupon.

I've heard it's YMMV. I think it just depends on how helpful the person you deal with feels like being. I could probably get away with it at my BB since they're all really cool. (including voiding out a purchase all together so I could do a return/rebuy) You're not really out anything for trying to get it PM and explain that "you thought you could PM it if the price dropped otherwise you'd have waited" if they say they can't do it.

So I had a extra ME3 coupon, while standing in line there were a couple of young guys behind me that I seen back in the gaming section. I decided to ask them if they wanted a coupon that would get the ME3 for $10. They both look at me like I'm crazy and like I was trying to hand them a anthrax laced coupon or some shit.

They were like naw man and stepped back away from me as I was handing it to them, maybe they were stuck on not talking to strangers IDK.

I love trying to be helpful in stores. Especially to like old women cause it really freaks them out. It's like they're expecting me to rape them in the parking lot if they accept my help....

Thanks OP, got a ME3 CE and Lollipop at my store, rang up $30 and $40 respectively. If anyone is interested, here is the stock locator for ME3 CE PS3

http://www.bestbuy.c...Mode=searchmode


How reliable is the store locator for out of stock items (specifically PS3 ME3 CE)? There are none near me according to the online locator, but I have seen out of stock items in stores fairly often. When I called three different stores they told me they are out of stock, but I fear they are using the same online info as the consumer website. I have heard BB's website shows out of stock when they get down to just a few items in quantity. Is there any real way of knowing other than getting an extra helpful employee who will go physically look rather than just look at the computer?

For some reason I have the opposite effect, lol once I was browsing the games section and some mom in her 30s asked me if I knew if Modern Warfare 3 was a good game for her son. How old? I asked. 11.

Agreed. I am always skeptical when strangers try to be nice or helpful. It's pretty sad.

The online system says out of stock when the number drops below 3. The system will tell them if there's even 1 in stock. So, if you call and they say no then they're out.

You should have recommended MW2 to her and noted that the airport stage is especially good for children that age.

Haha, I remember when I was younger I had an old guy ask me if I knew what game would be better for a girl. Maybe it was cause I had bieber hair back then.. hey, this was like 6 years ago mind you.

Read the op this morning and headed over. Had great success, the cashier wanted to borrow my sku to for the coupons but i let him know they were digital coupons and if he still had the mag from last month he could do that. Which he did, so he might let someone else do that without buying the mag. YMMV though. This is in Laredo, Tx San Dario store.

I checked the stock on Mass Effect 3 CE on the website and it said in store only. Checked stock at the store and they had 4 on hand, just took one :) . Well, if anyone from laredo goes, the cashier in the game area wanted a ME3 CE copy. So hopefully people don't get too greedy.

I kinda wanted to make the 30 minute drive to the only BB store around me that says "In-store" for the CE, but didn't know if it was actually a safe bet. With my luck they'll just say they don't have any in-stock. I already bought the CE from AWD for $36 a few months back, but wanted an extra ME3 just so I can stop taking the disc out of the steelbook case, it's a total bitch to push the disc out, I'm lucky I still haven't broken the disc in half.

I was actually surprised he asked me thinking I would know, I am at the age of considering my own child i.e. I look old, guess he thinks anybody under the age of 100 should know better than him/:lol:

I don't think they can even use the coupon unless they are Reward Zone members. I know it's free, but some people don't want to sign up for things due to privacy issues and such.

Went and grabbed both on :360: during my lunch break. Now I can retire the CE Steelbook for ME3 b/c I always fear I'm gonna break a disc..When ringing out the clerk gave a real good look at the coupons and started to freak me out, turns out I just don't think she knew how to scan them. But when it went from $75 down to $30 she was shocked. I paid and left.

Thanks OP for making this thread, I was contemplating throwing my coupons out yesterday b/c I had seen the $49.99 shelf tag on Lollipop on Saturday and figured no way was I spending $30. And ME3 is just icing on the cake!

I want the ME3 PS3 Collector's edition. But... not willing to drive 30 minutes (before calculating traffic on the beltway in DC on rush hour, which is HORRIBLE) to the only store showing it in stock. I prefer to save myself hours of time and just get the DLC for $10.

I am really trying to convince myself to not buy LC. The gameplay just looks SOOO bad.

Thanks for posting this OP.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV), Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4).

I'm gonna try to see if I can get the price adjustment from the ME3 LE copy I bought last week. Would it be possible for me, if I succeed in getting $20 back, that I ask the customer service associate to transfer it to a purchase of Lollipop Chainsaw with the coupon?
