Man, too bad the $20 off Grid 2 wasn't active a few days ago when Newegg was selling it for $20.

 

Wouldnt matter really as they are very unlikely to PM and let you use a coupon.

Best Buy needs to liquidate already and get this crap over with...  32GB vita memory for MSRP after a subscription-only coupon.  Fucking bastards.

To be fair, anyone can get these coupons for free.

Probably about the same as when CC collapsed; other retailers would soak up the business.  This time it would probably be someone like Amazon or Walmart that benefited most since they're BBY's most direct competitors like BBY was CC's.  BBY was teetering on the edge of collapse for around a year, and still aren't doing that great but better, so I'm sure that the other major retailers have had plans in place they can act quickly upon if that comes to pass.

Wal-Mart would benefit but they wouldn't pass that onto us. Best Buy is the only brick and mortar that actually has really good video game deals.

it's not a coupon you print. it's an offer you claim. that's all you need to do. the bar code on your "coupon" is simply your rz account number. if you claimed the offer it will ring up the sale price automatically in store

I checked the site and it clearly gives a link for a coupon to print if you wish to use in-store. I'm not sure if it's NEEDED, but it says what it says.

the thing that worries me is that if bestbuy goes under then the other retailers wouldnt have good sales less often due to less competition. bestbuy has been the best retailer when it comes to gaming the last 2+ years imo and i dont want to loose them :(

Unbelievable. How is Best Buy still charging $99.99 for Vita 32gb memory cards? Is that even legal? Once the price drops, aren't retailers required to abide by the set MSRP?

Oh that's definitely true.  Target and TRU step up from time to time but when CC went under that really hurt stuff for a while.

No, they can sell stuff for whatever they want.  An MSRP is just what the manufacturer suggests an item should be sold for.  Cars, groceries and all kinds of other stuff is constantly sold and advertised over MSRP.  Most companies don't do that though on luxury products and work with the manufacturer to set an inflated MSRP so it seems like we're getting a better deal.

Would we be able to price match this with the vita memory card ? I'm pretty sure it's a no . But I remember how it used to be is the gcu coupon would activate after they scanned your rz card .

I'll have to wait and see how it turns out tomorrow, but I called the Elite Plus Customer Service number to give my feedback that it's bunk to give a coupon for $20 off the vita card, when the final price after coupon is still more than Newegg's 68.99.  Was told that if I was prepared to order that they would price match the 68.99 and still honor the $20 off coupon.  She got the order all in at 68.99, told me to print out the coupon, and to take it into the store tomorrow to have them adjust it during pick up. 

 

Not sure how well it'll work, but considering she told me it'd be fine, and worse case scenario I just don't pick it up and have the amount credited back to my RZ/MyBestBuy/WhateverTheyCallitNow card, I figured it's worth keeping my fingers crossed.

local best buy here already has cleared space. completely rearranged everything, shrunk spaces, and put all the extra games 50% off, so i would say other best buy's will do the same soon. wii u and wii get only 4 feet each for new and used games (mixed in with new) and another 4 feet for accessories. the rest of that half aisle is 3ds and ds games, i think 4 feet for ds and 8 feet for 3ds. across this aisle is an entire side of sklyanders and disney infinity.

 

the sony section has 8 feet for new games, 4 for used, then 8 feet of accessories before you get to the 4 feet for vita. across from ps3 is 360, with the same amount of space, but i dont remember what was at the last 4 foot.

 

the next aisle is 8 foot of empty xbox one boxes, preorder cards and generally nothing. the rest of that aisle is pc gaming accessories, across from that is 8 feet or so of guides, and then a bunch of those peg hooks with general gaming cards followed by a 4 foot section of pc games.

 

that is the entire gaming section, accessory heavy, very little space for new games especially when the AAA games take up 3 or 4 spots by themselves. i did forget about the far aisle facing the tv wall, it is almost empty, literally just some overflow and things too big to fit in the new sections, headsets and accessories and about 10 ps2 games.

Depends on what system(s) you're looking for.  Wii U owners had great sales at Best Buy last week - Mass Effect 3 for $12, ZombiU, Call of Duty Black Ops II, Assassin's Creed III for $20 each, etc.  Target had buy 2 get 1 free on Wii U last week.

When you guys say that BBY doesn't allow price match and coupon do you guys mean that the computer won't allow it or do you mean employees don't allow you to do it? Because I know a lot of the employees at my store now and they're super friendly. I was able to price match NCAA down to $39.99 and use the B2G1 coupon on them.

if you do a price match + coupon, when the coupon is scanned the PM'd price reverts back to the original price automatically.  Only way around it is manager override.

When I go to print the coupon for in store use for Payday 2 it says "Save $20 on Payday 2" then lists the SKU's 9386058 and

9579071  which are showing to be $39.99 before I had them to the cart but it only lowers it to $29.99 once in the shopping cart. Is Payday 2 worth $19.99? I recommend you print the offer before you head to Best Buy because last time the POS wouldn't take off the coupon until I printed it at the register and I had already claimed the offer.

You probably can. Most managers will allow it because they'll think it's an "error" on their end and will honor it.

best buy still hasn't cut the price of the vita memory cards, is it possible to price match amazons price for the 32gb and also use the $20 off coupon? Amazon currently has it for $72.68, would be $52.68 with coupon and then I have a $20 reward certificate making it $32.68 if it would all work together.

That'll require manager override, which you're unlikely to get as that final price is under their cost. Managers sometimes approve double dips when the store is still coming out ok, but for a loss? Not often.
