The no tax thing is only w/Gamestop trade-in cards (which are red with that bunny on them) or trade credit put on a Powerup Rewards card (black or silver) not the standard gift cards. Also not all states are tax-free if you pay fully in store credit. Check the GS trade-in thread to see if your state is tax-free if paid fully in credit.


Yeah my state is. But I also have one of those bunny cards that I traded something in, and I've been adding credit to it.

I know it would have just came out but sucks not seeing any good deals for Playstation all stars.


Wow, I didn't know that was coming out so soon. I really wanted to like that game, but I was very disappointed by the Beta.

Yeah just wanted to clarify the difference between a trade card and a standard GS gift card, and that no tax on store credit isn't for every state.

It comes out on Tuesday. It's $40 if you buy it with a new PS3 at GS on BF.

Don't forget PS3 copies come with a download code for the Vita version.

Does GameStop usually price-match games with Walmart/Best Buy's BF ads? Would much rather hit up a GS than try to get around the mobs that surround Walmart/Best Buy.

So does anyone know FOR SURE you can use Best Buy giftcards at Best Buy to puchase prepaid Visa giftcards? If so that gives me much more flexibility with BF.

Meh. Whatever; I'm optimistic. Black Ops had one two years ago. We'll see.


Two years ago Amazon was still doing $20 credit for per orders, don't expect a real sale till mid Spring.

Ah. Thank you! If I had a Vita, I'd definitely be in for a lot of Cross-Buy games. I think that's a fantastic idea. I haven't picked up a Vita mainly because of how costly everything is, especially the memory cards. You'd figure the system would have internal memory like everything else these days. Also, I guess I realized how little I played my original PSP, and how unrewarding all portable games seem to be in general. Just my honest opinion. Part of me still kind of wants one, though.

These deals all stink for me.

What's the cheapest I can get a 3ds XL?
Where's the $5 ps3 deals?

I'm spoiled by steam...

Also looking for a BF deal on a 4gb 670gc gfx card :(

I'll wait on pandaria but I wish there was a deal on GW2...

Is it just me, or is it really strange there isn't a single 3DS XL advertised to be on sale so far? You'd figure that'd be the big ticket this holiday season. It's like they have an unspoken agreement not to put it on sale because they know it's gonna sell like hotcakes anyway. If any of them were to offer one, you know they'd make a killing. /conspiracy theory

Oh well, it's mostly sour grapes on my part. I was really expecting to pick one up, but I guess the wait continues.

Next week, it's gonna be $175 @ Target.

Planning on getting NBA 2k13, Madden 13, Fifa 13, Borderlands 2, Dishonored, Little Big Planet 2 all at Walmart. Hoping to resell all of them besides NBA for a profit on half.com. I sure do hope Amazon matched these walmart ads for the ps3 games.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I should get the Samsung Galaxy 2 tablet at Best Buy or the Assassin's Creed: Liberation Vita bundle at Gamestop. I think I'd enjoy the Vita more, but I know I'd use the tab more. Any recommendations?
