Just picked up 3 copies of Far Cry 3 (2 Xbox, 1 PS3) using my GCU welcome pack B2G1 free coupon. They had no idea how to ring up the coupon so they charged me $30 for one game and $15 each for the other two. Works for me as long as the total is right!

I don't think anyone has pointed this out yet...

The picture in the ad for the Skylanders singles, even though the sale price is for the smaller figures, is Ninjini. I found one in store (College Park, MD) and got them to honor the price no problem after explaining to the manager that the Giants aren't actually bigger versions of identical smaller figures.

Damn shot down at 2 different stores when trying to pricematch targets B2G1F for Ass Creed 3 Far Cry 3 Dead Or Alive 5 oh well can't win them all


It's really up to the MOD, you can try and talk to them and see if they will allow it but it's really YMMV. I've been able to make it work in the past but I'm sure results will always vary.

I recently signed up for Gamers Club Unlocked and received a buy 2 get 1 free on new games under $39.99. Could that coupon be used on sale items? I'd like to pick up Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed 3.

Thanks for the quick response. Wasn't sure if the coupon could be used on sale items. Again, I appreciate it.

I got shot down as well, but I'm pretty sure I've been able to match a B2G1 promo at BBY from another retailer before. I wonder if they changed up their policy. Supposedly they can only match prices but not promos?


it's always been their policy.. they just probably learned to enforce it better

It's possible - I haven't tried this before, but their computers in the past have continued to honor gift card promotions even when a price match is done. (Edit - see above)

Did they actually scan the coupon and hit total? Coupon discounts from the welcome packet work just like @Gamer ones. The discount won't show until the very end.

I used my welcome coupon on Assassin's Creed III, Far Cry 3 and Forza 4 and they had no idea how to scan my coupon even though it had a barcode. They had to ask another cashier and call a manager over. Finally I said I wonder if it will work if you press total and guess what, it worked.

I've seen reports of CAGs being able to PM the $4.99 price at Target, so as long as you have proof of BBY's price and Target has at least one copy in stock, you shouldn't have any problems (they should PM BBY.com).

I know, you wouldn't think it would be that hard to figure out, right? There are even step by step instructions on these coupons.

1. Enter reward zone member number.
2. Scan coupon.
3. Scan products.
4. Press TOTAL.

Ah well, I got the price I wanted and overall my Best Buy is very good to me.

Without the 100%. The prices on the website are base values.

YMMV its policy you must of been blessed to get new employees. I got turned down at my BB. Picked up Dragons Dogma and Mass Effect Trilogy for $2.07 after Certs and RewardOffer... still used my gift card to pay for that 2 bucks HARHAR!

EDIT: I was able to PM Mass Effect Trilogy for $30 from the Origin store (:

Somehow I didn't even know I had those coupons. I tried matching Target's B2G1 at BB, and, after verifying the ad, he was willing, but when he saw the games I wanted (Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed 3) were on sale, he said it would be double-dipping and wouldn't do it. I guess I'll be going back to use the coupon. Hopefully they still have the 1 copy of Far Cry 3 for PS3. Thanks.

P.S. I guess I may use the guide coupon to get the Assassin's Creed III LE guide for $3.50.

I got an email with the title "Welcome to Reward Zone Gamers Club Unlocked". I'm not sure the exact date I re-upped, but I think the email came within 2 days (I am a member through 11/16/2013, and the email came 11/18/2012). It will be an email regardless of your subscription type, physical or digital.

Rented Far Cry 3 on gamefly and really enjoy it. Really good game. Saw the sale and had to get it. $30 is a good price.

From my understanding, they can change daily and virtually at any time. Someone correct me if I'm totally wrong.

They usually don't change them multiple times in a day (although I wouldn't be surprised if they have done this) but yes, values can drop on any day.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.
