Thats what I thought....
Im used to stacking coupons for BluRays and all the shenanigans that go along with MFG coupons so I knew something was up but just wanted out of the store after turning in some cell phones and figured I would call and get a GC or credit when I had time....
Funny thing was he kept reading the coupon and saying it couldnt be combined yet the coupon specifies to ring everything in that order....guess he should have called for manager override but whatever....Thanks again.....


Had this happen to me the other day. For some reason it doesn't stack properly like it used to. Went back in and asked for the $2.50 I was owed after using the $10 coupon on a $35 game. Used it to buy Angry Birds for my little bro.

I don't think I have ever gotten the 10% with a coupon. I know you are supposed to, but I don't think their system automatically does it. I believe it requires an override.

The GCU for preowned? Last time I used the $10 off $29.99 it was applied automatically. Your rep must be doing something wrong.

Try having the employee manually type in your phone number for your Reward Zone account, I believe that makes a difference for whatever reason. The one time my GCU 10% used discount didn't automatically combine with a used coupon was when I had them scan a printout of the barcode for my Reward Zone... using phone number instead always works for me (last time was months ago though).

This is from the page before the coupons in @Gamer where an employee writes a quick blurb about that month's games:

For instance, you can score Soulcalibur V or Final Fantasy XIII-2 for a mere 10 bucks. Or how about Prototype 2 for $15? Heck yeah.


So, is this just a mistake or do you think this is foreshadowing that FF XIII-2 is going to go on sale to $30 (thus making it $10 after coupon, as opposed to $20 right now)?

Looks like you don't need to buy the CE of prototype 2 to get the extra game content.. thats included in the copies we saw in BB today.

We almost picked it up, but while it might be fun, our backlog of games is huge, and there are other more enticing titles we'd want to get to before we'd get around to it.

(We JUST realized we also have all 5 Asassins Creed games to burn through!)

I dropped into BB today planning to use 2 coupons, Soul Calibur V and Tiger Woods...boy was I shocked. Neither in stock...was looking for the Novella versions of FFXIII-2...no dice there either. Why is this game $39.99 again??? I was able to pick up Prototype 2 Blackwatch Collector's Edition PS3. The cashier was new, and called a new supervisor over, but he approved the coupon and it rang up as "MFG Coupon". Happy with that.
Thanks OP, for always giving us a heads up on the coupons.

I know, right? If it was just $10 less, I'd totally trade in my old copy and then buy a novella copy with the coupon (amusingly, they didn't have any novella copies when I bought mine with the last unlocked coupon...and, then, after selling out of those during the coupon month, they restocked with ALL novella copies).

Just for fun I tried using the Tiger Woods 13 for $19.99 at Walmart tonight. They did not "gladly accept" my coupon. Two associates and two managers chased me out of the store with baseball bats like I was trying to rob the place.

Took 15 minutes for them to admit that their coupon policy states that they accept "competitors' coupons for a specific item for a specified price". After that they denied my coupon because it says "customers must be a Reward Zone Gamer's Club member".

What do you guys think? I think the spirit of the Walmart coupon policy would honor these type coupons.

I haven't used one of those coupons in a while but it used to work just fine. I always handed them the coupon last, not sure if that made a difference or not, but the 10% would come off then the coupon. Never any issue.

Now, the 10% does have one notable glitch and that has been the B2G1 sales. In store, it doesn't stack the 10% and the deal (even though it actually should because the 10% has no limitations stated in the member pamphlet that I can recall) but it does stack online. So to get the 10% off on those sales you either have to do in-store pick up for shipping from the site.

The last time I bought a pre-owned game from BB in-store with a coupon was last March and it stacked fine. The only glitch I know of and that a corporate employee on the forums has confirmed is that the 10% off does not work with more than one title per order in-store hence why it doesn't stack on B2G1 free offers.

Also to answer those asking about @gamer coupons working on special editions or collectors editions. They only work on standard editions 95% of the time, the only @gamer issue I could remember that it worked on SE/CE is the September mag from last year for Prototype 2 and Mass Effect 3 which was made clear on the BB forums.

I don't know if there is a true difference in the UPC and such, but I know the Final Fantasy coupon worked with the novella version and the non-novella version. There were a few others that worked with more than one version I thought, but I can't recall them by name so I can't make much of an argument on it.

The final fantasy novella is not a SE/CE, it just a pre-order exclusive from BB. Essentially day 1 launch copies of the standard edition game.

I may stop by today and try to use the coupon on the SoulCalibur CE. Worth a shot.

Also, has anyone played this Nier game?
My BB has a ton of them on the shelf for 9.50. I'll probably pick it up, since I'll give almost anything a try at $10 or under.

I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the $20 off coupon in the current mag. Nothing at all. Pretty sure.

But to be at least semi-constructive in case anyone from BB is listening, $10 is the price at which I would buy. So get it back down to $30 regular and we're in business.

I concur. Isn't it silly to pay $39.99 (or even $19.99) for a game that will more than likely go Greatest Hits? I mean, I think every FF ever has went GH.

final fantasy 13-2 is going to be offically a year old by feb or march correct ? mabye the game will get the gh/ph treatment before these coupons expire. if it happens that will be the 29.99 price we are waiting for to stack the coupon with so mabye bestbuy wont put it on sale cause of that. every ff on playstation consoles has gotten the gh treatment and this wont be an exception :)
