I was going to get Mario Party 9 and Dragonball Tenkaichi 3, but the inability to use powerup rewards coupons online killed it for me. I have 50,000 points rotting away. Would have been nice if I could use them to get a $20 off coupon and use it with this deal.
At $25 a piece out of pocket for maybe/maybe not CIB and most likely scratched or poorly resurfaced, I will wait until I luck upon them cheaper.

Can anyone list some of the wii titles that are worth it? It's been years since I've used my wii and I just ordered a wii u and got xenoblade chronicles and the last story in store, what used wii titles are worth getting!

Check out the link in my sig for a year by year break down of good Wii games to get.

I did also see what Asgardian noted, is that some of these used prices did go up since they started this sale, though I expected a little sleight of hand when it comes to GS.

I think a good candidate for this sale would be to buy two copies of Dokapon Kingdom, as this recently got a reprint and is readily available in stores for a swap out if the condition is bad enough. Keep one, sell the other one, should work out pretty well.

If it's anything like the gamecube fire sale, make sure you pop it in right away to see if it works. I had 10% (2 in 20 gc games) come in complete, which were not working.

I'd avoid ordering the Kirby Dream Collection/Mario Anniversary off this unless you just want the game. I'd imagine you wouldn't get the special boxes/extras.

By the way, for those planning on picking up Monster Hunter Tri, the servers are going to end around April. So get the most out of your online play.

I ordered preowned games from GS-online in the past and majority of the CD based games didn't work and also had no original box + no manual. DS games do not always come in the original box either. Plus they tend to raise the prices whenever a sale like this goes on. Bunch of a-holes if you ask me.

a heads up in store you could just swap the cag16 for the birthday coupon for essentially the same thing. I picked up Metroid Prime Trilogy and Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn for 43.xx and 17.xx with the promotion, birthday coupon, and PUR.

No, it's not, the point is that online you are getting almost two B1G1 50% off and then on top with the CAG16 and PUR, it ends up almost like B1G1F. However most titles are unavailable online, but if they have it online, there is no reason to buy it in store... even if you get disk only, you can always go in store to do a swap.

PS: Thanks OP!!! This is awesome, I picked a lot of secondary games that I hadn't brought over the holiday B6G 30% off deal.
