Anyone mind posting a picture of their receipt for these deals so I can try to PM at Target or Walmart?


This^
But would they PM from that?

For everyone expecting to get these because they'll turn into rare collector's items soon, think again. We're talking about titles from Konami and Capcom. Two companies notorious for re-releases and also beginning production on stuff that was out of print because there's a new demand for it.

I don't get why BB is getting so much hate all of a sudden. Because they now only offer 15 days PM?

Sorry, but I feel Best Buy has been nothing but great, to me at least. I've scored more deals through them in the last 2 years than any other retailer, even Amazon (though Amazon was pretty awesome this past BF).

I definitely do not want BB to disappear. Having them stick around is good for consumers, as more competition means better prices for us.

Really want to pull the trigger on UMvC 3 but being able to pay rent out weights this. Which is a sad state to be in. But I suppose when I have extra income, the game will just be cheaper


Cheaper, maybe not. It's been flirting with the $20 mark for more than a year since it wasn't overproduced and isn't widely available. But at the same time it's not like the price is going up either so waiting on it definitely wont hurt:)

Not unless you get a dumb rep, it won't work.

A PM is the "other deals" that the coupon says it won't work it, and usually when you do a PM, coupons tend to get locked out of the computer.

If you get a dumb rep that does a manual price adjustment to match the PM + coupon'd price, then that's the only way I could see it working.


Hah bummer, I don't think I have any dumb reps at my local BB.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Also, their new return policy is in effect: 15 days to return for regular customers (was 30 days). That also means 15 days to price match. Premier Silver still get 60 days as usual.


Just to clarify, you can only PM other competitors at the time of purchase. You have 15 days to PM only Best Buy if their price drops within that period.

The grace period for silver members-is that PM BB only till April 18 or PM competitors as well till April 18? Want to know if I can PM GS Crysis 3 price now or are after-the-fact PMs of competitors already toast for all?

They've been doing that for months in needing your DL # for returns. It's to track people doing too many returns and barring them from returns if they do too many in a certain period of time.

I think its dumb even if you pay in cash and you have proof of the receipt.

It's a risk either way, no one knows what they will do. The thing that really fouls up the mix is that for the first time we are in an era of digital distribution and that may make a publisher think a reprint isn't necessary, especially in the system's final days.

Just picked up the last copy of MGS at my local store, but couldn't find any others. I've been itching to play MGS so it doesn't matter to me if it becomes rare or not.

I don't see how paying in cash and having a receipt makes return tracking via DL# "dumb", return abusers all have receipts, and may use cash.

Grrrrrr, No MGS HD at the 3 BB's near work. Might just end up going for the pre-owned with GCU 10% and an RZ facebook cert and hope it comes complete.

what I don't get is sometimes the id/driver's license is scanned (or if the store is old they type the info) while other times they just look at it.

What's dumb is that they not only find people abusing the system (returning an item for another item, for another item, and so on, turning Best Buy into an electronics rental), but they sometimes just flag you if you bought a game, changed your mind a couple of days later and brought it back or if you bought something that simply didn't work (I've had to legitimately return a web cam that had known software issues and wouldn't install/work and a network device that apparently only works under certain conditions but isn't stated in any form on the box and I don't have those conditions). I get it, but it seems overreaching still. I am glad they stopped taking ID for price adjustments though, that was just bogus.

May I ask, what do you do? At least you have a job.


Sure. I moved down to LA on New Year's Eve to pursue a childhood dream of being a film actor. Graduated college with a BS in Marketing. I balance 3 day jobs: 1 as a waiter, 2 doing internet forum moderation, all at minimum wage. It's amazing at how difficult it is just surviving in this town, let alone work as an actor.

But my name is from my love for cooking.

There were 3 MGS HD collections at the BB in Crystal Lake, IL. I bought one. I had gotten a UMvC3 at the same store about 2 weeks ago when you still could get it for $17.99 from BB.com.

Unfortunately, I was really looking for the Silent Hill HD collection, of which they had none.

Anyone know if it's still possible to check stock online for a new copy? If so what it the SKU? Do I need that?

I can't seem to be able to search for it online. Might just call them tomorrow.
