Used PS Vita and 8 GB memory card for $189.99 in store, $199.99 online for "GS Refurbished"

Virtually everything there is consistently cheaper at other retailers.

When's the last time you've seen Bully disc version for that price? Many of those PC downloads are also around the same as sale prices on Steam/Origin. Getting a free game with a full MSRP purchase of Far Cry 3 is also not the worst thing in the world. 20% off TB headsets also a good deal.

Just wanted to post some other GS deals for those w/GameStop credit.

Does the 320 GB Ps3 offer works with bundles? I checked inventory and one of the stores shows uncharted 3 Ps3 bundle is available, would be cool to get this bundle plus the other 3 games for $270

I'm not hating on you for posting these deals, first and foremost, if that's what it seems like. Maybe I haven't seen Bully for that price, but isn't it regularly just $24.99? Witcher 2 may not be on sale for cheaper now, but it's been as low as $10 at Best Buy.

Brand new copies of The Witcher 2 EE have been $10 several times in the past (Best Buy RZ offer, MS Store Black Friday ninja sale, GameStop BF sale).

Sorry yeah that's what it seemed like after I just typed all of that out, no problem. :)

Bully is normally $29.99 used so that's a $10 drop. Yeah Witcher 2 was $10 at BB w/Gamer magazine coupon but if you remember that thread most stores sold out with a day or 2 of that magazine coupon going live and the BB Magazine thread was full of complaints. Also I wasn't awake on late Friday night/early Saturday morning after working a full day on Black Friday so I didn't get any of those $10 Microsoft store online deals and lots of other people missed them also.

No the console bundle deals are used systems bundled with older used games. I'll update the post for clarification.

Just change the word GameStop with amazon and you would not see any complaints. A majority of retail deals can be had cheaper online since they incur lower costs than retail stores.

I find it hilarious that they're having a weekend "spend your tax return" sale weeks before anyone will get their refund.

Would get less complaints but if you add Gold box then would get x100 times the complaints before the sale even starts.

Most people who are broke and stupid spend their tax returns before they get it. Go to a cash advance or payday loan store and see how busy they are.
Btw I that Jackson Hewitt commercial.

Sleeping Dogs on PC has been much cheaper in various sales, typically $10-$15, while also going for less than $5 on a Steam pricing error. It's $20 on Steam right now for the Square Enix weekend sale, with the chance of being lower as a daily in that sale this evening.

The D&D Ultimate Collection is an awesome price for what's in it.

Edit: $39.99 is actually the new msrp on Sleeping Dogs PC.

This. The people that are getting their refunds already are typically the people that don't pay any taxes anyway and are eager to spend more money they didn't earn.

Are you saying Gamestop thinks its customers are broke and/or stupid?

Should be nice for a few games I want now, but a better discount can be had at the B2G1.

All the complaints quickly go away once amazon pricematches "xyz retail store" and the love is restored within seconds. Amazon gets forgiven eventually, GameStop does not.

Waiting for the inevitable "post erasing" from the mods because i talked about GameStop and amazon in the same post.

Bully: scholarship edition for the xbox 360 is currently 14.99 pre-owned at best buy. I just hate buying used games from GameStop or best buy for that matter since condition is such a crapshoot, but I have had far worse luck with GameStop.

In for Bully for $5 via the $15 off pre-owned "Steal of the Week" coupon. Whoever has points to redeem can get that and any titles they are interested in on this sale for cheap.

Nobody can even file their return yet. The earliest date you can file a return has been pushed back to January 30th this year.

However, if you do direct deposit, you get your refund relatively quickly compared to getting a check.

When's the last time you've seen Bully or Witcher 2 XBox 360 disc versions for that price?

I bought Bully for $10 on Xbox Live a few weeks ago.

I was just thinking that. Usually don't get my refund till sometime in early March at best.

If you file your return on January 30th, the day you receive your refund if you are owed one is between February 6th and February 20th.

I thought the IRS doesn't even start processing refunds until the 30th or the 31st.
