I think it's safe assume tomorrow.. "Best Buy Ad 3/3-3/9"
But I'm not too experienced with BB so :lol:

100% absolutely not, and if it does it'll only hold for the morning until they realize they missed it. That's why I'm debating if I should trade in my stuff I'll used towards TR now or wait until Sunday...


Right now I would get $30, I'm gonna gamble and hope at the most they drop it to $15, because I would still get $30 for it. I only paid $25 for it brand new from BB, worst case scenario I'm out on $5 bucks.

Can someone please explain the 100% trade-in bonus? I have Ni No Kuni and for some reason, the figure $25~ comes to mind (concerning value for trade at BB).

Does that mean... I get $50.. ?

Two words: Heck. No.

Based on this link, Ni no Kuni has a $9 base, so assuming that doesn't change by tomorrow, you'd be getting $18 after the 100% value ($18.90 if you're a Gamers Club Unlocked member). I suppose the value could rise, but no more than $2-$3, if at all. I'm not sure where you got that value from since Ni no Kuni's had a pretty low base value ever since it first showed up on BBY's trade-in database.

So the controller is $20 off if you buy it with Tomb Raider. But it's SIXTY DOLLARS normally? No way. Even if they let you apply the GC from preordering TR it would still be $20 haha. No thanks. I know normally the controllers are $60 but I don't think I've ever paid more than $40 because I always wait until they're on sale.


If you waited for the Halo 4 controller to go on sale you would have never got it

Bastards are going to torment me and adjust the trade in for FC3 during the night....ahhhhh.....yes I know they shouldn't make adjustments in the middle of the 50% trade in, but the little ray of hope sucks.

LOL, all the games I wanted to trade in on this deal just got their price adjusted down so the TIV is exactly the same with the 100% deal as it was with the old 50% deal.

You may be able to get Best Buy to match that price (my local store matched, but it's not one of the explicit e-tailers in the system, so YMMV). Someone who's getting the controller/game bundle isn't saving anything but if, like me, you're looking for a controller with the transforming d-pad and you're not a day-one buy on the game, there you go.

The XFX 7850 1gb video card for 179 + Voucher for Hitman Absolution, Bioshock Infinite, and Tomb Raider was the highlight for me... Picked this up yesterday for 153 dollars after reward zone certs and got 6 months financing. Whee. Upgrade from my old 6850 and put that in the fiance's rig.

Does Best Buy price-match Toys R Us? If so, do I need a physical print ad or will they match a simple look-up on my iPhone?

Question:

Is the Best Buy exclusive copy, the one with the standard edition and book, is it double sealed? Meaning if you open it and remove the game case from the cardboard packaging is the game case still sealed?

Anyone know?

Thanks

I'm not trying to strip DLC. I just know someone that wanted the game and was willing to pay $50 for it.

Seeing how BB has perhaps the best preorder promotion ($20 RZ cert) and I get to keep the book I figured I'd go that route.

Yeah I just opened it. It is double sealed and the game has a real UPC (instead of "Not for Resale").

Too bad the target PS3 version wasn't a G2 steelbook that I could fit in the Best Buy cardboard sleeve.... would have made a pretty cool set.

Also despite being super small I like the binding for the BB comic book

Is there any exclusive BB cover art for Tomb Raider (similar to Resident Evil Operation Racoon City) or is it the standard cover artwork with exclusive BB packaging?
