Looks like these deals are only good for today, so good luck trying to pm tomorrow at Best Buy, since it will end tonight. Sucks that I found out about this after 9 pm. I seen New Super Mario Bros 2 for 3DS at a Play N Trade new for 29.99 last week but doubt the sale is going on still.

What deal is today only? The Kmart prices are in the ad and good for a week.

Better explanation on what you did please, and the benefit. lol


He is combining the 3ds deal from the Best Buy ad with the Kmart ad (see their respective weekly ads at the top of the deals forums).

Best Buy is offering $20 off when you buy two select 3ds games from their list.

Kmart is offering 5 3ds games for $30 each.

Therefore, he price matched two of the 3ds games advertised in the Kmart ad at his local Best Buy for $30 each (normally $40). The Best Buy system then automatically took $20 off the total, so he got two 3ds games for $40 (30+30-20)

Typically, Best Buy doesn't let you take advantage of multiple deals like this, but it apparently works now because the system is automatically set up to take $20 off when purchasing 2 of those select titles (but it's still YMMV whether the store will allow it)

Theoretically you could get Paper Mario Sticker Star + Super Mario 3D Land + New Super Mario Bros. 2 + Mario Kart 7 all for 80 on one receipt (or $20 each).

And 50% off is a huge discount since Nintendo made games take a really LONG time to drop from msrp.

Since all the KMarts around me are long gone, I haven't received a paper ad in the mail or in the Sunday papers. No price match at BB I guess, damn.

They ran out of NSMB but had 3D Land and didn't remove the coupon so I ended up getting it for $20. Fine by me.

Will BB PM K-Mart if there is no K-Mart near that location? Like do they have a certain radius? I have a K-Mart near me and a BB pretty far away so I get BB and K-Mart ads. Not sure if I should even bother trying if there's a cutoff limit (plus the gas I would spend to get to BB).

It should be in the computer as a list of stores that they price match. If you have a smartphone you can show them that it's on Kmart.com -- that's what I did. Nearest Kmart is a good 1.5 hours away, probably? I don't even know.

I just checked the BB website, both Paper Mario and 3D Land are priced at $29.99 so maybe they updated their pricing. :bouncy:

Well yesterday online it said only good for that Sunday, now that I see that it's still priced 29.99 online, wish I would of known this earlier I already picked up a few things with my reward zone certificates.

Got the in-store pickup option at a local Kmart with no issues; games were ready to go at the Customer Service desk. Came out to about $55 with tax for NSMB 2 and Super Mario 3D Land with the coupon, which I figure is about as good a sale as any for Mario games. Now I just need a 3DS and I'll be all set. :)

So best buy price matched but wouldn't allow the coupon to stack so I ended up only getting one game at $29.99. Manager said it was "double dipping"... but if the system allows it, why be a bitch and block it? Sigh. (I know why, but I'm 0-for-3 on price matching in this area .. Fuck!)

My BB is out of the way, so I'm not sure I even want to try because if I get double dipped it won't be worth it. If anyone has gotten a PM and gotten/can get 3D Land and Paper Mario for $40+tax I would pay that price and shipping for them if you want to DM me. If not it's cool, might just pick up 3D Land used at GS (looks like the ones my store has come with the Nintendo points things) or at K-Mart.

Never mind, I price matched with my phone and got NSMB2 and Paper Mario for $43 after tax.

I plan on getting those two as well. I'll need to show someone the ad on one of the Bestbuy display laptops as I don't have smartphone. Was the $20 off automatic?

Anyone that can get the 2 for 1 to work, I would be willing to pay a little extra for your trouble if you can get me a NSMB2 and Sticker Star. My local Best Buys won't let me "double dip". PM me if you can help!

It was automatic after the manual price adjustment. The cashier called someone over to do the price matching on the scanned games, I had the cashier scan my RZ card, then the total showed as $64 or something. I asked about the $20 off and the cashier said something like "maybe it'll show when I hit 'total'" and the total dropped to $43 with one keystroke.

A couple of things which may or may not affect the outcome:
-the other guy who did the price match had walked away right after making the adjustment. The system automatically took off the money, but I can't say if the guy was a supervisor he couldn't have done something else to void the $20 discount.
-the cashier didn't seem to know about the $20 off when I mentioned it. There is a chance that with knowledge of the deal and some previous instruction by a supervisor, the cashier could have done something to not allow the price adjustment. I've never worked with Best Buy's retail system so I don't know what's possible at the register

That said, a price match and no other manipulation at the register's computer should get you the deal.

The 20 off is a prompt that pops up after they hit total. They have an option to click Yes or No on the discount. The cashier at my store freaked out and called the manager back over and I was denied the deal.

My cashier saw the $20 and got the manager lol

I see. Maybe I missed the extra keystroke or click. I guess the response depends on past experience or how afraid the cashiers are of their managers.

Got the stupid screws filler item in its own box and the box was huge. Much larger than the box that came the same day that had only one of the 3DS games I ordered. So they turned something that should have been one at most 2 shipments into 3. No wonder Sears/Kmart is having issues...and the Kmart Gamer guy left a few months back, the fb page is still active, etc. How Mickey Mouse is that for a national company?
