Was there any distinguishable rhyme and reason as to who was given one? Or does it appear to be random. I didn't get one :cry:. I have Power Up Pro


It was random and it didn't matter if you were a free or paid member. I didn't get one either but people have had success PM at BB and others have been able to get/trade for a coupon from another CAG member.

Hmm. This makes it easier for me to decide which membership to keep. BestBuy or Gamestop? Looks like I won't be renewing my Power Up.

I went to Gamestop yesterday.

Picked up

R&C
GOW Saga
J & D
I & SotC

Wanted the Infamous collection too, but they didn't have any in stock.

I was stoked to get all these.

I traded in Lego LOTR for Vita (I platinumed it 2 nights ago), and with the bonus, it net 24.50.

I ended up getting all these games for around 30 some bucks. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
Apparently there was no rhyme or reason with the coupon. Of course, I wouldn't have a PS3 to begin with if it hadn't have been for the awesome coupon they sent out 2 years ago.

Well congratulations to anyone who got BB to match this deal because I was told that BB never matches competitor coupons.

Best Buy can be YMMV for price matching. They can just let it through, or argue with you. I know for price matching the points deals that appear sometimes they've argued with me in the past.

My coupon showed up last week. I bought Journey, which was the last one in the store, so it was opened. Since the game is installable, I figure I'll just return it and grab another instead.

It doesn't work like that. It installs it to make it quicker, but you need the disc in to play ANY of the games on the disk.

If you got anything Metal Gear Solid related, shoot me a PM!

So how does this coupon thing work? Do free members get it? Luckily my Gamestop opened up after the hurricane. Were even luckier to have a generator and a PS3 to hook up. If this isnt for free member can someone who already owns the collections spare me a coupon? My little brother would love the ratchet and clank collection or the god of war saga

They require the disc still, just to prevent people from doing what your talking about.

I just PMed at BB I got everything but Jak (already have it) and an extra copy of god of war collection as a christmas gift. They brought a manger and I had to show him a copy of one of the email coupons (grabbed off google saved to my photo file on my phone), a saved banner, and the actual web page. All and all it took about 20 minutes or so because of all the price adjustments, but DH will be happy when he gets home!

Of course it could help that I am 30, female, and had a 2 year old child with me. I find I often get things price matched that my husband can't just because I'm a woman. Women wouldn't manipulate video game deals since they don't play games right? lol I play more than DH.

Oddly enough, I find having my kids with me increases my success rate. Though I'm a father and not a mother, I think your combo works for sure

Since you were there anyway, why didn't you trade in Infamous 1 and 2 for Infamous Collection in the same transaction (or if you prefer Best Buy credit, Infamous 1 to BBY and Infamous 2 to Gamestop)? Infamous 2 TIV held at $9 today, Infamous 1 might still be $4, so that's $19.50 after bonus at least.


I'm a collector. I NEVER trade in games. I would buy a redundant collector's edition before I even considered trading in a game I already own.

For reference, I already own all three of the Ratchet and Clank games for the PS2, yet I still purchased the Ratchet and Clank collection. And I'm going to keep all of them. For me, it's not just about always having one playable copy. I like having an original copy, as well as a high-res playable version.

The same is true for the Infamous games. I got those titles brand-new for really good prices. They are the original copies of the games complete with boxes, instruction manuals, and inserts. On top of all that, Infamous is a really good series. I'm never trading those.

I believe they are the same. I compared the PDF file I download from my PUR account to the email I received later and it was identical.

I am not a PUR member so I decided to try to get a PM with the coupon I bought.

BB: "We will price match if you join our premium game club for 15 then we'll have to verify which games are on sale"

Target: "We don't price match percentage off only exact prices."

So I went to GS and got a PUR card but the card won't activate. This is getting to be more trouble then it's worth.

Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

The whole "don't match percentages" is a lie. Just do the math... 50% off $40 is $20. There's your exact price.

Math is hard. *dryly* I even showed them that the prices are on the ad on the website.

CS said I have to wait 24 hours for the PUR card to activate. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if I can get the games with my free membership.

I just showed them the printout today and they gave me the match. They just manually calculated the 50% and put that amount in the system as the price match. It worked great. My only problem was that they only had two of the items I wanted in stock. I may try another Best Buy soon.

Did you show them the printout of Gamestop's website that shows the sale or a printout of the coupon?

I didn't get a coupon yet. I am still going on the assumption that it is just delayed since more and more people seem to see them trickling in. I just showed them the printout of the website (there is a few posts with the link in this thread). I was afraid they would ask me for the coupon, but they didn't seem to care and were pretty happy to do it. I have had a lot of luck at Best Buy where others haven't so i'm sure it's all very YMMV. The transaction did need a manager's override. I'm not sure if that is because the cashier was new (she definitely was) or if it is always that way. A common tip I see here (that I agree with) is always go to the regular cashier and stay away from the game department people for price matches and coupons.

Sorry it is tough to look through 100+ pages. Is the offer still active online? I have the coupon in my PUR active offers. When I go to the website and put the games in cart and try to check out, I put in my PUR number and the code SONY50 and it says code is not valid.

Thanks


Sorry to ask again but haven't seen a confirmation. Is this no longer available online?
