By the time I got my welcome packet back in novemeber, it was going to expire in a week and they were currently having a buy 2 get one sale. I made a post about it and they are sending me a 50 dollar gift card.

Its worth it to post in their forums.


what did you say and do u have the link

Got my mag today. Coupons are as stated in the OP - disappointing.

At least the $20 RZ cert promo offsets the subscription price.

Best Buy is slowly destroying what they had going as far as game purchase incentives...

When they switched over to this format a year back they took away a lot of perks that were free anyways, like the 10 dollar RZ cert for 150 spent in games stuff on top of normal points and the 500 bonus points for EVERY preorder, even on top of the deals like 5 for 5000 points(Which ironically last year didnt require a "fee" to participate in)

Now after applying this fee to be in a "club" that gets you a worthless magazine and lame perks trying to push their Used game agenda(Which I think was a stupid decision on their part anyways) they are now dumbing down the few perks that were worth something like the coupons

Besides the people that scam BB's own stupid system by buying games cheap, playing them and then getting more than they paid by trading them in I fail to see how this is better than what was being offered for free a few years ago

No wonder their stock is plummeting, they are slowly annoying and running off the customer base they already had chasing after a customer base(Gamestops) that they will NEVER get

I never really liked Best Buy to begin with, A company that sees their customers as "devils" and sales as customers taking advatage of them is not a worthy enterprise to spend money in. The only reason I started shopping there exclusively is the fact Circuit City folded and for a time after that they truly acted like they turning a new leaf and trying to be more respectful of customers. But that is slowly fading away

In fairness though, the company is in chaos. The former CEO is apparently putting together a group to purchase the company, but only after he sees the holiday earnings report. I don't think Best Buy is going to be launching any major new initiatives until its financial situation is settled. I've been happy with the $20 certs for buying games I would have bought anyway and I like that it is very easy to turn those into Amazon credit with Kindle cards. I agree with you that the whole membership/magazine/coupon thing is a colossal waste of time and adds another layer of irritation for customers to deal with.

are people still complaining about a bunch of coupons ? just stop already !!!!!! yes the last few issues have been dissapointing but at least with this one you should be able to get the scv and prototype 2 collectors editions for solid good prices. heck the vanilla editions for 10$ and 15$ respectivly is good (repeat coupons or not). bestbuy has given a ton and i mean a TON to us over the last two years or so. so everyone who is complaining should just shut up, play your huge backlogs and wait for the good deals to come in :D

U been here long enuf to know what's gonna happen, people will let the subs expire & then there will be 3-4 top tier to epic months & then we'll be back to the "I would get in on the deal but I don't wanna pay $5 for coupons that should be free."

Now I fully agree that the repeats are a pain since it's clear they wanna clear stock but obviously it would've made more sense to discount the games to $5-$10 with previous coupons & use a major title in each mag as the "draw" deal. We all know there will be a AC GOTY, Borderlands 2 GOTY, Sleeping dogs complete & so on. So based on BB's previous moves when we see a $20-$30 off coupon on any of these games followed by a MSRP drop(which is as good or better than a sale IMO) fully expect an announcement of the complete/GOTY shortly.

Voice YOUR OPINIONS regarding the @gamer coupon deals here DIRECT TO BESTBUY.

If u like the idea or amendments posted by others on the ideax thread make sure u vote by clicking on the blue up arrow under the numbered vote counter next to the title.

FYI:Just saying "more coupons should be stacking with sale prices" most likely won't bring changes so try to expand on the presented ideas in the OP or flat out bring your own new ones to the table.

If u have suggestions of what perks should be added to the GCU Silver Tier you should post them here since it looks like BB could soon be implimenting this program

Agreed!!!!! Too many people bitching, less people gaming. Cmon people take a game from your backlog and start playing it. By the time you're done with your backlog, many of these games would cheap enough for you to purchase without a coupon.

I've never used a coupon with an vanilla version pictured on an LE item. Several stores still have the :ps3: Prototype 2 Blackwatch CE at $59.99. If the coupon is guaranteed to work, I might just pick it up and do a return/re-buy when I get the coupons..are we sure this always works for collectors editions?

If you preorder one game you get your money back right away so stop bitching. With the $20 RZ cert and 10% trade in/off used games it has saved me plenty of money. I just see the coupons as a bonus. I have used $10 off used coupon at least 3-4 times and gotten cheap games in KOA/ME3.

I believe the Blackwatch CE is down to $39.99 at Best Buy. Though I have my doubts it will actually work with that version.

Edit: Nevermind, still $59.99. Though I do recall seeing it for $39.99 somewhere....

Coupons suck, but the digital offers are getting better. I suspect they're offering the better deals as account-linked Reward Zone offers to prevent the copying and abuse we saw with last year's March coupons.
