So, I guess Toys R Us doesn't carry XCOM? I called two stores and they haven't even heard of it, and it's not in their systems. Well that sucks.

Looks like the tiv is $27 and with bonus 50% and if your a GCU extra 10%, i guess your right. But is it worth spending $17+ tax for that tiv and a 50 gc u may or may not use?

That's 15% tax? I think he's in PA tax is 6%(8% in Philly) & depending on how close he is to Philly/King of Prussia tax free DE is only 45 minutes away.

Again, BB is frigid over all things TRU now after the $10 Diablo 3 and Skyrim price matches. But have fun.

Just left BB on Goddard Boulevard & as usual they were more than willing enuf to take more business away from the TRU on mall blvd .3 miles away. Just bring the ad.

ad also says 1 card per guest... Are they strict about that?

If people successfully pm to bestbuy let us know

not very strict at all. People stand outside of TRU during some sales & clean the store out of games even though there's a limited per person.

Just got back from TRU with Tekken Tag 2 and Resident Evil 6. The gift card they gave me expires on February 2nd, 2013, just in case anyone is wondering. Also, they had PS3 & 360 copies of XCOM, but that seems very YMMV.

Except in the past few years, the retail stores have started to do "pre-BF" sales in an effort to grab folks' money prior to black friday. I'd expect for sales to start rolling in around the start of November or so.

most likely most stores will be doing some sort of Thanksgiving ad.

No, it's a generic TRU promotional gift card with the date on the bottom.

I might buy two copies of Dishonored and trade one into Best Buy for 43.00 (to use towards Halo 4).


Ok I think I'm about to do this. Already having $50 in GC makes this deal tits. Get Borderslands 2, my $50 TRU GC back and $43GC at Best Buy.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

both you guys fail for not being able to use the internet.

Also, there's a big difference between clerk incompetence and announcing this deal doesn't exist.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I'm in San Diego this weekend and I have the Sunday ad from the Union Tribune in front of me. The employee was 100% wrong, the deal is valid in San Diego.

I usually bite on TRU's Oct deal like this but there is not one game I would pay full price for right now, not even Dishonored so I am going to pass this yr.

Seems worth a shot...got XCOM last week, will try tomorrow and see what happens. Got a few BBs in the area, too, so can try a couple different places if I'm bored...which is unlikely.

Went to my local TRU and I didn't notice any Skylanders' promo gift cards on their counters. Purchased my games and they gave me a standard promo card that expires next February. Some stores I'm guessing haven't bothered stocking their registers with the promo cards.
