Also over at SD, if you did get in on some crazy deal and took advantage of it, you're looked at like some kind of god. Not so much here.

this. Especially when the deal is obtained by lying, cheating, haggling, begging, loop-holing, causing-sales-rep-jobs methods.

It will no longer be $5, they raised the price now it's $15 after coupon. But anyways, you can have my coupon if you want it. PM me your address and I'll mail it out on Monday.

Damn, I hope everyone transfers to Digital version smoothly. I have feeling some of us will need to contact support to get our magazine/coupons.

Sweet, a CAS member in the area. We must have missed each other because I also picked up a copy today.


Right on. I was there around 8-ish I think. I've met one other CAG in the area once when I was in Schaumburg. We were both checking the penny guides. Glad to know there are some others around here. Keep an eye out for one another and all.

I was just able to snag a $5 Prototype 2. The shelf sticker price was still $29.99 but it rang up for $39.99. They honored the shelf price and $25 off coupon with a manager override. YMMV but good luck - check the shelf price!

It's a shame that Prototype 2 went back to $40. Best Buy doesn't like selling games at CAG prices, it seems. Hopefully the game will drop back down to $30 again. I already got a copy yesterday, so I'm pleased.


I lucked out and grabbed one too thanks to someone posting in the gamefly thread. BB hasn't had one of these in awhile that I can remember and I kind of gave up following this thread to try. Best of luck to those trying to price match or waiting for it to drop down. I guess at least the coupon lasts for another month.

Got BB to price match Gamestop's 30 sale for Prototype 2, but no luck on using the coupon on top....can't blame a CAG for trying.

No. Too much of a CAG to pay 15 for such an old game...only time I spent that much in the last three years was for Forza Horizon this BF and the double pack of Saints Row the last.

I'm hoping it at least hits to 35 sale before the coupon expires. No loss if I don't pick it up for the second time in a year they had a coupon for it.

Got P2 for $5 using a coupon from a magazine in store and some sweet-talking with a cashier and a manager. YMMV for sure.

The. balls.

When I sent them an email earlier in the week, I was just told that since mailing labels are pre-printed for upcoming magazines, my mag sub would start with the March issue. I guess she hadn't checked her memos quite yet that day.

Can the digital coupons be abused, or do they all have a unique barcode?

I think thats why bestbuy is going digital with coupons. So the coupons cant be abused anymore. Bestbuy is losing alot with universal barcodes coz of abusers. Like what gamestop is doing with their reward coupons, i see unique barcoding going to happen for these.

I don't see the difference between digital coupons like RZ offers and physical coupons, well, unless you want to buy multiples under one subscription I guess.

Personally it saves me the trouble of putting the coupons in the car.

Makes sense, and also wont allow the cashier to hand the coupon back and have it be used again. Plus they save money on having to print and pay postage of the physical copy. Also since it can't be abused it means a much better chance of us actually getting the item. Seems like a win except selling a digital magazine with notoriety is tough, so selling a 3rd string digital gaming magazine to new subs is going to be pretty damn hard. Just hope it doesn't kill the program as I've gotten some pretty nice deals since subscribing last August.

Personally it saves me the trouble of putting the coupons in the car.


I hope they are just tied to the account and not have to be printed, that would be even better.

I think they're gonna shoot themselves in the foot if they do it digital only, since the coupons have sucked since august/september no one is going to subscribe.

Wait. People still say "put out"? Or is it limited to those who still refer to "talkies", "trollops", and "reefer"?
