Looks like I'm gonna have to cancel my BLOPS 2 order from Hastings and pick it up with another game for $70.

If I hadn't just picked up absolution for "20" then I'd be getting that and far cry 3. Now I don't know what to pair it with.

2 for $70 is still steep for me. By the time I can finish Borderlands 2, RE6, lollipop, GT5 and KoA, they would probably be sub $30, at least. I'm surprised you guys are willing to pay $35 if you got a backlog.


Just because you have a backlog doesn't mean you have to play them in the order you bought them. Sometimes it makes sense to get something new and play through it right away so you can trade it off before the value drops out. For example, if you could snag RE6 and Borderlands 2 or something for 70, then hopefully trade them or sell them for 15-20 each soon, it would make them more like $20 each. It's fuzzy math (and obviously works better if you can buy with credit and trade back for the same kind of credit), but it's certainly not a bad idea.

I am hopeful that Blops2 holds its bonus promo value of $40.00 at GS till the 16th and I might trade that in and than just re-buy it with a copy of Far Cry 2 at TRU.

The sale doesn't start for another week so I doubt you can price match it yet. Depends where you are price matching it to. All the Best Buy's in my area are so anal they consider this a combo deal and won't do it.

Ha! Did not even see that. The last $10 off sale they did I had no issue with Pming. I got $10 off BLOPs II, Borderlands, Halo 4, and Dishonored. That is fine though. I will only have 3 things tomorrow then. It seems to be easier to get them to PM just one game. I have never tried the B2 get $X off deals which are very YMMV.

It says save $50 when u buy 2 but it also says save $10 when u buy certain ones, so this could really end up as buy 2 for $50 right?? If u buy 2 of the selected $10 off list?

I just bought Far Cry 3 and Halo 4 with their B1G1 50% offer and with store pickup, do you think they will adjust my purchase? I have not tried before and maybe someone has.

Your best bet is just to rebuy them during this sale and return those copies with your original receipt.

Only $20 GC for the Xbox360 Kinect bundle? Both Target and Amazon have $25 this week. Guess I should have made the effort on BF. Oh well, maybe I can trade in enough stuff at GS and get it there.

Even easier, you can just PM Kmart's $49.99 price on FC3 the same week as these sales as long as you have a copy of the ad.

Far Cry 3 (hopefully w/ a K-Mart price match) and BLOPS 2 for me! I've bought way too many games lately, but these deals are too good to pass up.

I don't know what you mistook for Assassins Creed. It's not part of this particular deal. It's only on those 14 games you listed.

Yeah, I picked it up in store earlier in the week. The B1G1 50% is nice, but I had nothing else from series 1 needed. Just finished my collection.

I just stacked it with Rayman Origins and wished I had known it was part of the sale last night as I would have picked it up with the $20 game I picked up last night (the increasingly difficult to find on sale 3rd Professor Layton) and struggled to find a companion for $20 so I didn't get the best deal.

So, instead of Prof Layton + Skylanders for $30 (minus $20 TRU groupon), I paid twice and got suboptimal deals both times (Prof Layton + Game I shouldn't have paid $20 for but was ok paying $10 for and Skylanders + $15 second game in Rayman Origins) :(

Sadly, this is the type of thing that can annoy me from time to time.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Those two for $40 would be good, I just hope my local TRU actually has them in stock.

Anybody know off-hand how price matching games and the 2 for $50.00 off will react to each other if done at the same time? Looking at getting Far Cry 3 and Hitman in this deal but would also maybe try to work in the prices that K-mart will have on them that week.($49.99 for FC3 and $44.99 for Hitman)

Sadly at TRU if you price match an item it eliminates any corresponding deals attached to the item. So the only way you will get both the sale price and a pm is via a manager manually giving both deals which is going to pretty much be YMMV.
