If you talking about official guides like prima or bradyGames, and looking for physical item not e-guide
I would suggest amazon normally, even pre-order price is discounted.
for ex: Tomb Raider is $16.44(MSRP $24.99)
http://www.amazon.co...rds=tomb raider

I heard there is penny guides in some retailer(gamestop etc.) which for those guide no longer supply. The shop will mark down to $0.01 while clerk didnt have time to remove the unsold one. Pretty much YMMV

The $0.01 guides from Gamestop, Best Buy, and Toys R Us are all very YMMV now (Best Buy in particular has changed their register system to prevent selling them).

You might have some luck with GoHastings and AWD for used guides.

Also, CAG has a thread where ppl sell guides as well.

If you have a Half Priced books, they normally sell guides. Its hit or miss. Mostly cheaper than 10.00 for a normal guide.

This is good advice. I live near 5+ half price books and they all have a big stock of strategy guides since they're one of the only stores who accepts trades for them. Rare guides get snatched up quickly though, so goodluck if it's an older one
