Picked up a Magna Carta 2 for Xbox 360 for 8 dollars after the discount. Now I can finally play it without opening my sealed copy since the sealed copy goes for about 100 dollars online. I did see a Legend of Mana for PS1 for 50 before the 20%. That was kind of high for that game.

I love my local HPB, I have picked up some pretty awesome books but also picked a brand new sealed copy of Blazblue for the vita during the 50% OFF sale for $7.50 and a sealed Silent Hill PS1 Black Label with Y folds and hang tag on the back still for $29.99. I am usually surprised whenever I go there.


Darn you haha I'm guessing the Dublin, ca store. I was going to pick that one up too but it was gone when I went back. Good find though.

I love the Dublin store, it's my new favorite rare comic book store. I have found some of the hardest to find comics there at fantastic prices. Strangely never found a good game deal there, however.

I picked up the Magna Carta 2 there for 8 dollars yesterday. I find most of the good deals at the Concord one. Picked up a 2nd generation Genesis for 10 dollars last july and a gameboy color for 10 and pokemon red, yellow, blue, silver and gold for 3 dollars each.

I just picked up a black label xenogears in pristine condition, no scratches at all, and a copy of killer 7 on gamecube for 35 after the 20% at the Fremont store. They had a bunch of N64 and NES games there.

Just grabbed the MacGyver Complete Series for $31.99 which I couldn't have been happier finding. I never really look at their overpriced games and my store did away with the lock boxed CE area so there is never anything really worth having..

Only had time to hit a couple of HPBs near me, but I was still able to find:

The Art of Tales of Legendia - 4.79
Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria - 6.79
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth - 7.99

Also picked up two GBA carts:
Sword of Mana - $8
Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis - $12.

The guides were in really good condition and I just couldn't pass on them. I recently bought a GBA SP at a yard sale and needed a couple games. The prices didn't seem too bad so I picked them up.

YMMV on hold times.  HPB doesn't have a set store policy, so it will vary from place to place depending on the management there.  Some stores don't even do holds, but some hold things for up to a week, so best option is to just call the store you want to go to and see how long they do holds.

Interesting.  My emailed coupons have a different number sequence on the second part.

 

I doubt it really matters, since they probably don't track in the system as unique.

 

Have they posted a set on their facebook page yet?

~$40 after the 50% off coupon:

 

Wii (white)

Wii-mote x2 (does not include Motion+, does not include Nunchuck )

Balance Board

Wi Sports

Sensor Bar + Cables

Probably Wii Sports game

 

Is this a decent deal? and what is the cheapest/best way of getting the Nunchuck and Motion+ components (and at what price range)?

 

Thanks for your advice!
