I bought two of them from this sale as well (the FF12 guide). They never got pennied out years and years ago, so they still kept them I suppose. The ones I got were 14.99, reduced to 6.75 I think.

Has there been the slightest bit of chatter as to when the next B2G1 sale will be? I absolutely refuse to use my $20 gift card that I got for Christmas until then.

Next B2G1 will probably be sometime in March-April (income tax season).

Also, to confirm, this unfortunately does NOT work on the DMC guide for anyone who is thinking about it. Sad, I wanted to do it as well :(

Also, @technicalstylez: As bj said, you get an additional 20% on the one guide (more expensive) for buying it with a game and having a PUR card. Normally, the PUR takes 10% off, but the game added on does nother 10%, plus your 50% off. :)

I price matched the 50% off guide sale at Best Buy yesterday. Yeah, you dont get the extra 10-20% extra on top of the 50% like you do with the PUR card, but you still get points on your Rewards card and more importantly, guides that aren't even offered at GS.

That's cool, I may have to try that. Already spent over $40 on guides last week from GS though...arrrgh.

At one GS I visited, the employee suggested buying a used game to get the additional 10% off for the six guides I purchased, but for whatever reason, the discount wouldn't appear after scanning a game (he tried a used copy of Halo 3 just to see if it would work). I figured that three promos stacking might be a little much for GS to handle.

Has anyone with a PUR Pro account had success buying a used game with a guide to get the additional 10% discount?

I'm fairly positive when I did it last week that it did. I'll look at my reciept when I get home and post it if it did. If it doesn't, I'm not upset, I still got a good deal, and BB were the best about PMing the couple of CE guides they didn't have at GS. I think I got 4 CE guides and 3 regular ones for the price of 2 of the CE guides full price.

when i bought anarchy reigns new i got
witcher 2 - pur 10%/50%/ mystery 10%
ffxiii-2- pur 10%/ 50%

was wondering what the extra 10% on witcher 2 was for, and if it was for buying a game then should it have been applied to both games? idunno.

The extra 10% should come off when buying a used game. Picked up SSBM at about 85% off and a copy of the Witcher 2 guide and got the extra 10 % off no problem.

How many games in total did you have on the transaction prior to adding the used game at the end? If the computer registers you are already receiving a promotion, you wont get anything identical (i.e. additional 10% off a guide). Chances are, the computer may have registered the multiple guides was a good enough requirement to score that extra 10%.

Either way, do you have a way of uploading a scan / pic of your receipt? I can take a look at it for you.

Rumors are afloat that the 3DS will get another perma price drop. Gamestop is preparing by giving shit for trade-ins and selling them at like $10 under their new current retail. To make things worse, the warehouse is holding onto new systems for the remainder of the month.

Looking at my receipt from this morning, I actually got my skyrim guide for cheaper than I thought. I bought halo 4 new and the guide, the guide has 3 discounts applied to it ($10.93 after discounts). So it works with new games also.

This additional mystery "10%" really only works out to be like 4%, so not worth getting too excited about if you missed it/didn't buy a game with guides.

Assuming you mean "guides" when you say "games in total", I had six of them. The employee then scanned a used copy of Halo 3 to see if the additional 10% discount kicked in, but for whatever reason, the prices didn't change. Now that I think about it, though, I don't think he totaled out the transaction, so for all I know, it would have worked.

Thanks for the offer to look at my receipt, but I don't really have any way to upload a scan or picture of it.

I know the 10% isn't much more of a discount, but considering I (1) bought ~$70 worth of guides with GS credit and (2) will be buying a few used games tomorrow anyway, I figure I could use that extra ~$7.

Just beware there will likely be a 3rd version of the Skyrim guide once GotY edition hits that will have the (soon to be) 2 expansions not covered in that one (Dragonborn and the rumored Redguard.)

Guys, just as a heads ups..

Barnes and Nobles carries a lot of old guides. I picked up a couple of copies of sealed Red Dead Redemption GOTYs at my local Barnes and Noble. Granted these are not at 50% off... it's nice to have grabbed it at MSRP when you consider how expensive these go for in the 3rd party market.
