The BB $20 bonus, but I'm going to say specifically for Halo 4. With their bonus + the Amex "pay you to play the game" deal, I ended up getting paid around $100 to beat that game. :D

Best buy. The 20 dollar preorder made it easy to pay nothing for a new game, if you traded it in quick enough.

Didn't ToysRUs do a 2 for $70 or $80 deal on select new games toward the end of the year? I remember using a Groupon coupon on top of that and getting Hitman and Halo 4 for the price of one new game!

Not sure if it counts, but there were plenty of awesome Sears clearance deals in 2012. One month in particular had 20+ games or so drop down to or below $10, grabbed too many things last year from Sears (Posted Image gaming department).

The Best Buy @Gamer March coupons, that was 2012 right? Grabbed Arkham City for $10, Rage for $5, Bulletstorm for $5, and I personally wasn't able to get a copy, but they also had Mass Effect 2 for $5 as well. That was my most exciting deal of the year.
