Pre-ordered BLOPS2 tonight, no problem getting the free mag.
I was planning on getting BLOPS2 and PSN+ anyway so I'm happy, almost makes up for the crappy @gamer coupons lately.

"$15 off 12-month subscription for psn, posa, and digital"

What does psn, posa, and digital mean? I saw the $50 ps+ 1-year cards but I don't know what you are referring to and what other psn cards are eligible.

For those of you who are wondering the cover of this months @gamer is CoD, hence the CoD themed discounts.

NOTE : These coupons will be in a special edition of @Gamer that sells in-store for $9.99 and will NOT be shipped to Gamer Club Unlocked Members.


$20 Off Call of Duty Blops (ps3 / xbox 360)

$20 off CoD: Modern Warfare 3 (ps3 / xbox 360)

$20 off select gunnar optics for gaming

$15 off hauppauge HD-PVR2

$15 off 12-month subscription for xbla, posa, and digital

$15 off 12-month subscription for psn, posa, and digital

$10 off CoD: MoD 2 for (ps3 / xbox 360)

$30 off turtle beach call of duty: black ops 2 tango headset




This link is going to be outdated shortly but I'm leaving it here as there are a few days left.

First Black Ops is up to $17 Base TIV now.
I think I'll trade it, and then use the coupon on the newer version with the extra maps.
Should make about $5 on the exchange as well.

^ Right... if you lose your original receipt, they can use your info. to look up your RZ account and literally print out a DUPLICATE receipt.

Well, it doesn't seem to be on the list of games for the $20 (1,000 points) RZ bonus, right? And I'm assuming you're being allowed to keep the steelbook that you picked up at pre-order. So win-win, I'd say. Infact, I think I'm going to pre-order and cancel as well just to get that steelbook.

That's exactly why I preordered it. It was just weird that the CS had to scan my license and the guy thought it was strange too. Never had that happen on a return.

finally got around to visiting my store. They never heard of this but tried ringing up a dummy pre-order and it worked so they told me just to take the magazine, too much hassle to cancel and re-pre-order it.

If your still looking for an answer, I don't think anyone knows that you can trade 1 game for each system, and if you trade in too many at a time may get you flagged. Also that you may also be able to argue this for the limit, but it is ymmv. :
Can I trade in more than one item at a time? Are there any limits?
For Video Games, you are limited to no more than three copies of the same title and platform within a year (e.g., three copies of Madden 2011 for XBOX 360).
Persons or companies intending to trade in ten or more than units of substantially similar products (like mobile phones, or laptops) are requested to use our online program. Our in-store service is provided for the convenience of our retail customers and is not designed to handle large volume transactions. Please be aware that the final offer price on volume transactions may be less than the offer for individual items.
Policy for volume trades:
Please provide reasonable proof of ownership
If you are a business liquidating products used by your company, a statement a company letterhead is fine.
If you are a reseller that has taken product in trade or return you MUST include a document showing the transfer of ownership from the original owner for each article.
Please ensure that each item is clearly marked with the assigned transaction ID, is fully functional with working batteries, and, in the case of mobile phones is not tied to an active account and is eligible for reactivation.
Failure to follow these policies may result in your items being rejected. They will either be recycled or returned to you at your expense.

Safe to say that they do it for tracking purposes. Not interested in an argument over whether the whole "pre-order to get an item and cancel immediately after and keep it" is basically stealing, but I wouldn't recommend doing that often or you would be risking getting banned from the store.

You're getting $20 back in credit, plus a free magazine, AND if it goes on sale within 60 days, they'll match it.

I have my HE paid off at GameStop already, plus there's no way it will go on sale before Xmas. I would've preordered at BB but I didn't have/know about GCU then. I'm not too worried about eating this $5 since I'm going to use at least two of the coupons and the magazine is actually pretty cool.

The HE wont go on sale but the regular version probably will. MW2 hit $30 and MW3 was at $40 before Christmas the years they released, I buy two copies every year for my kids. I dont remember if Black Ops went on sale though, we traded it in pretty fast after release.

Once that 30 day window passes it seems like everyone puts it on sale for a few weeks then right after Christmas its back up to $60.

I so hope that mw2 is 9.99 at some point after that coupon goes active. A 9.99 deal i can see happening on bf. A free mw2 for my friends son would be a sweet gift

Has anyone else's Best Buy still not put out these magazines and have no idea what it is? I've been to mine twice to adjust my pre-existing preorder to get the mag and they have no idea about the mag, says all they have is the one with Assassin's Creed on the cover...

Mine only had about 2 of them out but I saw loads of them behind the counter. They had plenty of the new issues out so I had to look around for a while before I even saw any COD issues.

No, it's just that some of us ALREADY had it pre-ordered BEFORE the free offer for the COD-themed @Gamer magazine got included as part of the deal. So in order to get the free mag, those of us who already had it pre-ordered had to cancel and RE-pre-order it, got it? Because after all, you only get the $20 worth of bonus RZ points for 1 copy of the game, and no more.

So I went to preorder black Ops and asked about the magazine and they were just like "da fuq iz u talkin bout $$$$a?" after telling them that the @gamer twitter account said you get the cod issue for PO and they were like "twitter?" and sort of laughed at me so I just left without a mag.

I pre-ordered and got the magazine with no problem. I just grabbed a pre-order slip and a magazine and went to the front register.

Sometimes I don't even bother conversing with certain employees because thanks to CAG, I often know more about the deals than several Best Buy employees do.

I would have done that but they didn't have the mags on display yet but the guy did say he did have them. I told him to just scan the slip and the mag in the same transaction but he thought I found a loophole in there system or something and wanted proof of the twitter post. I would have shown it on my phone but I have crappy T9 phone currently as I sold my iPhone before the iPhone 5 launch so I can get it during my upgrade eligibility in December

Argh! I hate those dumbfuck employees (and that includes managers & supervisors) who think that every customer out to get a good deal has found some kind of an ILLEGAL method or a glitch in their system to screw them or something.

Just today, I was trying to price-adjust some FIFA Soccer 13 games that I bought at TRU a couple of weeks ago with a sale that TRU had this week (ending today 10/13) for $50 off every pair. Holy crap... I had to go to like 4 different stores (the 4th store being one at which I didn't even initially buy any of those games at) until I found an employee who understood what I was trying to do, and COOL enough to do the price-adjustment for me. She was a manager as well (or at least had the override code), so she was able to take care of it without any issues.

But my God you should've heard the excuses the idiot unknowledgeable employees and their confused managers were giving me to NOT do the adjustment at the first 3 stores that I visited (and these WERE the actual stores where I had bought the games from)!

It's like TRU corporate recently send them a memo to be "EXTRA-DICKY" to customers trying to get a good deal, or assume that they're all scamming or whatever. I wouldn't be surprised if BB corporate did the same for their stores, especially at this time of year.

Was at my local Best Buy and the game employee was not aware of the deal. He tested it by scanning a new preorder and the mag and he was telling me the deal isn't applying. Says maybe it still isn't in their system. Very unusual that it's still not in their system, guess I'll try again at a later time.

This is one reason I still don't like shopping at Best Buy - the associates are so unprofessional, it's like going to shop at a high school.
