So any renewal deals floating around? Mine ends in March and they just sent me a renewal email, but no offer. Was hoping for at least some RWZ points or something.

I picked up Prototype 2 for $5 yesterday. Ended up being a bit of a hassle. I'd checked the web site beforehand and it said they had copies in stock. Went to the store, none to be found - just the CE. Asked an employee, no luck. Asked the employee if they'd sell the CE at the $29.99 price. They came back from a mgr and said they'd do $39.99. I wasn't interesting in the game for $15 so I said no. I checked the web site again and initiated an in-store pickup order. It said my order would be ready in 45 minutes. Went to another employee and told him. He checked the computer again, then went and dug through the games again, this time finding the game - 2 columns over from the CE, in-between the "R" and "S" games. Nice alphabetizing guys.

I'd also talked to their mobile phone folks and got a $5 blu ray coupon. The Rocky Collection was on sale for $22.99 so got it for $17.99 with the coupon.

All told, $24.98 out-the-door for Prototype 2 and 6 movies on blu ray. Used my trade-in credit from AC3 (27.20 from the 50% bonus) to pay for it all and still have 2 bucks left over.

This is where I give the CAG community a big thank you. If not for this place, I wouldn't be aware of the $20 pre-order rewards from BB or a lot of other deals. I pre-ordered AC3, bought it for $47 the week it came out (price match against TRU), got the $20 RZ cert, which I ended up using on Pulse Elite headphones that I price matched and ended up paying like $92 for. I traded in AC3 and got $27.20, which I then turned into Prototype 2 and 6 Rocky blu rays. I'd say it ended up being a heckuva deal. So, thanks guys.

Just rang up 39.99 for me as well. Oh well, my backlog is at about 150 right now, so I guess I don't NEED this game.

Crap, told myself to go pick up Prototype 2 later today since I was lazy yesterday. Lesson learned.



You're not alone brother...I was literally 1 minute from BB on my way home yesterday when I got a phone call urging me to head home sooner. I figured, "whatever, I'll just get it tomorrow". There goes that...

Shelf price at my local Best Buy still said 29.99 for Prototype 2, so I just had them pricematch that and scan the coupon. Had a cool manager, though.

I'm sure the answer is buried around here somewhere but could someone confirm if you get another welcome packet when you renew?

Not trying to criticize you, but don't you think you could've checked around a bit on your own for the game instead of just looking in the "P" section and being like "wtf!?" when it wasn't there?

Any time I go to Best Buy looking for a game, if it isn't in the letter column of where it SHOULD be, I look through A-Z, behind EVERY game they have before I go ask someone

checked my best buy, placeholder card still said 29.99 so i took it to the register, rang up 39.99, got it price adjusted, gave him my coupon and reward certificate, then i realized it took $25 off the 39.99 price.

The cashier said the coupon didnt work on the sale price, even though it says markdowns taken on sale prices in big bold letters. he was saying the coupon says "does not combine with other coupons and offers and sales are offers" by this time a manager came over and i explained that i assumed offers were for things like buy x get x free.

The manager had me complete the order and go to customer service and refunded me the $10 difference. slight pain in the butt but worth it for a free game (with reward certificate, bought a ds screen cleaner for 2.99, total was 4something all together.)

Price was being marked up. They have all the price stickers ready and everything. But I manage to grab it before it was marked up and the manager honor it. The weird thing was, the price rang up $29.99 for me, but the coupon itself only mark it down $10. The manager was like.... Total price was suppose to be $16.04. But the manager was cool enough to grab a gift card and mark it down another $10. So ended up with prototype II for $6.04.

So story short, right now it might be YMMV. I am guessing some store, the system didn't adjust to the new price and malfunction? I don't really know XD

The steelbook is empty and was a preorder incentive, not sure why Best Buy is trying to sell it for more than the $5 it was prior to the game's launch.

I gotta say, that's even more ridiculous than just looking at the P section. Looking behind EVERY game = crazy. I probably would have checked the neighboring columns myself, but after that I'm asking them to verify stock and maybe check if they have it in the back.

Well, I did look around, just not far enough - I looked through the Ns and Os and Rs. Had I gone just a hair further, I'd have seen it. I kinda figured it would be, ya know, right next to the Prototype 2 CEs. It was obviously a bit more hidden than one would expect since the first BB guy couldn't find it either :)

amen to that! I scurried over there yesterday after buying it for $15 w/ coupon on Tuesday. It was a slight hassle because the register didn't want to do it. So, they just did a complete return of the first sale and re-rang it and were nice enough to grab a magazine from the floor and scan the coupon inside of it. If I had waited till today, I would have been p-i-s-s-e-d!

gotta love these random 1-day price drop / sales at Best Buy..

I renewed in September and never got another packet, so it's news to me that some got another one after renewal.

I don't know what's worse, relying on a BB employee to find it for you, or trying to justify it by comparing your own detective skills to that of a simple-minded BB employee. You're a CAG now damn it, act like one!

Edit - Oh wait, CAG in training, that explains it.

Probably not dead (could be wrong). Best Buy's site is apparently broken and nothing is being listed as on sale in their system. Once that gets fixed (its been like that all day so far, so who knows when this will happen), I expect the $30 price will come back. Again, just my prediction.
