I saw the 20% promo if you buy a pre-owned game AND use your PUR card.

Does anyone know if I can buy 1 game to discount all my guides? Is it 1 game per guide for the discount?


Links crossbow training discounted both guides (I only bought the one game). So I spent $.44 to get an extra 20% of the two guides. I may actually go grab the hitman CE guide tomorrow with this same strategy.

what garbage service. If I acted like that where I work, I would be fired in an instant. I highly doubt anarchy reigns is the hottest game of 2013, where everyone and their grandmothers preorder it, especially at Gamestop:roll:.

Seeing how Gamestop only wanted to give me $8 for Doom 3 vs Bestbuys $20 after 100% promo, I had Bestbuy price match the $19.99 price for Sniper Elite V2.

I don't believe you need PUR pro, but it takes 20% off first, then 50% after, so it isn't just 70% off.

10118 promo code is on all my guide receipts, and i didn't buy any games with those. Pretty sure that is just the standard PUR 10% discount.

On the one receipt that i bought a new game and 2 guides, i see an additional promo on one guide only, #2831, which takes an additional 10% off(after the 10% PUR, and 50% sale were applied). Which in reality, is only 4% off total.
So, for example buying a $20 guide and a preowned game seems like it would save you about 90 cents if that is why that promo triggered.

Picked up a couple more today... Batman AC CE for $15 and The Witcher 2 for $12.

I didn't realize the Arkham City CE had two different covers, I saw the online picture on Gamestop's website and figured that was the only one, when the employee brought it out the only one they had from the backroom, he even asked me if that one was fine and I said yes without even glancing at it since it was shrink wrapped. Ended up with the Batman cover, no Catwoman for me :(

Hey guys,

Are the prices still not up online for the half price? They don't even show it online except for the ad. I was thinking that maybe I should do store pickup since the ones I want are showing low stock but I'm nervous when I get there they are all going to be full price.

I guess pickup does give the in store price anyway so that is probably the smart way to do it... but I just wanted to confirm with the pros that this is accurate before I place the order.

Thanks!

Online, you add it into your cart, and the discount is added automatically.

In-store, it will ring up once they scan a guide.

Awesome, thanks. I knew it would be quicker to ask here than ask in store... last time I went to Gamestop for a promo from the ad and they didn't even know what I was talking about :-#

Thanks again!

The Red Dead Redemption is worth a lot. You won't find it on eBay for less than $100. It's quite rare, and all the different stores either don't sell it, or have pennied it out, so that's a great find.

You know that receipt you got for the purchase? Fill out the online survey and give them the absolute worst score possible. Management actually does look at those things and hopefully it will be enough for someone to talk to him about it. Maybe even fire his ass.

Unfortunately the DM of the area is spineless and won't do jack squat about it. Telegraph Rd. store is even worse. Only good stores in the area are Arnold & Fenton (just don't ask the store managers for game recommendations as most of them in the district hate games or only play Halo/sports.)

Still a complaint needs to be filed, especially if someone at corporate starts to look into why her district is in the bottom 1% of metrics in the company ...

I would buy cheap shit from those stores and just keep giving them terrible reviews with the receipt. Higher ups then her are bound to notice.

Don't know if this has been said but it is NOT 50% it is 60% with PUR. I just got back from GS and got Skylanders Giants for my son, and the guy told me with PUR you get the EXTRA 10% even though it is a NEW item, so it only cost $8, which was a great deal.

It's actually 55% since the 10% off reflects the price after the 50% off (e.g. $39.99 guide -> $19.99 after 50% off -> $17.99 after 10% off = 55% off).

Yes but beware it doesn't have Dragonborn in it & each of the last 2 Todd Howard-Bethesda developed games (Oblivion & Fallout 3) each got GotY strat guides that are the most valuable versions.
