Went ahead and picked up ZOE today with the coupon. Needed to buy something to get my $10 RZ credit for the Facebook promotion.

Is tekken tag worth it for 20? I can't find soon around me and that's the only thing I still want that I don't already have.

yes, unless you don't plan on playing MP. Also expect to get owned in MP.

It has been 20 on xbox two times, and 25 on ps3 once.

I'll play a little multi I thought of myself as good at tekken tag when it came out so maybe it'll come back to me haha. I just want a good fighter at a good price that isn't mortal kombat.

AE and Marvel are both $20 or less, if you'd rather play a 2D fighter.

Picked up DOOM 3 a couple of days ago for my 360. So far, it's awesome! Seriously loving the 60 FPS.

YMMV, its possible if you can get manager to do an override for you.


The associate said I could, but the manager said I couldn't. I tried reasoning with him, but he said that it only reduces the price off of "retail value". Me thinks he's full of s**t.

I like MvC3 a lot, just as much as Tekken. Close at third is SC4.

Suck at Street Fighter:)

If you wanna play Tekken on PS3 PM your handle.

The associate didn't know what they were talking about. It's either/or. Once they price match, scanning the coupon will take it back to the price it was BEFORE the PM and then it'll deduct the coupon.

Not sure how people find managers to pull that PM+coupon stunt for them.

So i am not sure this has been answered already. I have never done the price matching before. Based on best buys website, it seems if it doesnt say price match guarentee they will not match the price on an item? Or will they match any item or is it store by store basis? I was planing on trying to get a few price matches but dont want to get there and they say no for some reason. The prices are from one of the competitors they match.

Basically, if there's a physical store w/i 25 miles of that BB you can match the store. It's up to them if they want to call & verify that the tiem is in-stock & the price. If BB sells it then you can match it even GC for other venders or pre-paid cards.

I know there's people on the fence about re-uping the GCU but here's n example of why you should...
Twisted Metal was $20 from BB months & months ago & I just trade it in to GS for $17.63(after 10% PUR & extra $10) so even if it was in your backlog you'd still pay less than redbox for a weekend. TTT2 netted $16.54 so $4.64(including the 6% tax) is a steal.

Man, the associate was getting my hopes up, too. :cry:

That's what I don't understand is how people pull that crap, either.

My local Wal-Mart accepted the $20 Gamer coupon for Doom 3 (PS3) as a competitor's coupon. It took about 10 min to find a manager to do the override and complete the sale, but it was worth the wait to score a copy of Doom 3 for $9.96 + tax.

It's hit or miss there. I was able to get Doom 3, but I couldn't get them to PM Darksiders 2 when BB had it for $14.99 a couple weeks ago.

wal-mart is more likely to be nonchalant than bby. they just don't give a shit. that sometimes works in your favor, other times managers refuse to honor policy just because they don't feel like it and consider it shady to explain their own policy to them, lol. /shrug

Sad as it is/sounds I always have to "trap" Walmart associates. Like, "Hey, you guys take competitor coupons still right?" (I'm fairly certain that is still their official policy). The associate says, "uhhh yeah, think so." "Oh cool, I have this coupon here and would like this game." Of course the response is almost always the same, "I don't think we can do that." 'Why not?" The employee stares blankly for a moment while they try to figure out a response that doesn't involve not taking competitor coupons cause he just told me they do, "Uhhh we don't know that coupon is valid or not." I walk away and just go to any other store possible and buy something I don't even need out of spite for Walmart.

It's actually not part of their policy to accept competitors' coupons with "dollars off." Nice that you were able to score.

I'm thinking I might get it for ps3 assuming my best buy has copies left. If so, I think my tag is on my name, if not, it's the same as on here haha. So feel free I play a few titles here and there although I usually get stuff for 360.

Picked up Battlefield 3 and Zone of the Enders HD for $37 today. I never got my physical or digital magazine this month, so the BB employee just gave me the little booklet of coupons to use.

Please tell me if I'm hallucinating - wasn't ZOE HD $20 online just a day or so ago? Because I just walked into Best Buy again expecting to PM to the online price and - like last month with Prototype 2 - totally got shut down since the online price was higher.

http://www.picvalley...P6CLoropGm.JPGI know it's really really late in the game, but for what it's worth, here's a scan of the cover from the brochure containing this month's coupons. I must have gone by them multiple times thinking it was one of those pre-order cards which are also black with a yellow bar across the top. Instead of looking at the large @GAMER text emblazoned at the top, I just saw the yellow bar and the Bioshock Infinite logo. I kept looking for something that looked like the magazine cover art. Could've saved myself a lot of frustration and wandering through the store if I had only "asked for directions." ;)

Walmart doesn't have to price match competitors coupons, they will price match any manufactures coupon though. I found this out when I got my cat and tried to PM the petsmart coupons she came with. The manager said they can only take manufacturers coupons. Mostly because of make your own coupon sites.

Grabbed ttt2 today and I might try to get Walmart to use the coupon since my best buy doesn't have doom 3 which is a total bummer.

Oh and ttt2 was for 360 if anyone wants to add me to play.

I don't think you can. It's always been in store, unless something has changed recently that I missed.

Possibly may be able to do it at https://w1.buysub.co...418049830&vid=1 You may get stuck with a subscription without the gamers club unlocked though, if that's even possible. Best off to just do it instore or call up best buy.
