its just hit or miss and as long as they do the pre order $20.00 reward zone I'll be fine. Too many people get all butt hurt when they don't get a free game every month. Sorry but best buy still have to make some money to even offer the deals from time to time and can not give everything away.

Who is asking for a free game? I think mostly just asking to not give us coupons that are worse then ones they give out for free. Well that and I guess not taking only $10 off Injustice.

I'm not a sub but the topic title totally caught my eye. The $15 off coupon for GOW:A is a joke. IIRC, the past two weeks(or the two weeks before that) there was a $20 off coupon for GOW:A for FREE RZ members.

What Deader said. The coupons are pathetic. Theyre worse than Amazon prices most of the time or sale prices elsewhwere. They really have been getting worse and worse every month. THough i do think the $20.00 pre order thing is decent, thats all they got. The actual coupons are getting worse and worse

the fact that free members had access to a better god of war coupon than the one paid members got is a slap in the face (i know paid members got it too but thats not the point). this is the second time this has happened if im not mistaken

My sub ends this month and I don't think I will be re-subscribing. I haven't used a coupon since September and I am not going to read a digital magazine.

Borderlands 2 looks like it could be a good deal, but it is what we've come to expected from the way their coupon trends (a AAA title, 6 months from release gets a coupon for $10-$20).

For the record, I got Prototype 2 for 5 dollars thanks to a coupon, and unless my memory is really faded, that was in 2013.

And I hate that God of War and Gears of War both go by the same initials, because I was getting ready to say if Gears had a price drop, I'd be all over that coupon, then realized it was God of War, and I don't have a PS3. If the God of War PS3 bundle has a price drop after E3 down to 250 or less, I'll get it, then I won't even have to worry about the coupon.

There are some good games in the coupons this month, but I don't think there are any I can use. I just bought Injustice at TRU yesterday, and already own Borderlands 2 also. But overall, I am happy wit hthe year subscription I since last August. I got ME3 for 10, Prototype 2 for 5, reward certificates for Madden, Borderlands, AC3, and Dishonored, plus a goofy magazine. Don't know that I will resubscribe when it runs out, but I don't feel angry about my subscription.

As someone who very rarely pre-orders games (this entire gen I've preordered the Skyward Sword collector's edition, Xenoblade, and Injustice. That's it), the value for Gamer's Club is in the coupons. And while none of the deals that I've been able to get BB to actually honor have been stellar aside from last March (the one with $5 Rage, ME2, and $10 Arkham City), this month's deals are insulting.

Anybody who is a Gamer's Club Member already had the chance to get Injustice for $60 with a 20 RZC coupon, WTF are they doing offering it for $50 now? Not to mention that, since launch, both Target and Toys R Us have had much better deals, and unless you are hellbent on the PS3 version you can go to BB without a GC membership and get Injustice RIGHT NOW for $50 with Amazon's price match.

GoW:A is the same deal. Already had a better offer for preordering. They already offered a $20 off coupon for it, WTF are they doing offering a $15 coupon for it? I'm not fond of repeating deals, especially this close to when they were first offered, but if you are going to do it then AT LEAST offer the same deal, not one worse. And, again, anyone can go to Best Buy RIGHT NOW and get the game for $40 with Amazon's Price match.

And Borderlands 2... I know this isn't helpful to 360 users, and this isn't necessarily a Best Buy problem, but it's already been on sale on PSN for $20. $21 if you bought Borderlands 1 with it.

So yeah, if I were still a paid GC member I'd be extremely pissed. This is a paid membership. That doesn't mean that you are going to make use out of every coupon that comes out, but when they can't even be bothered to match past offers, well someone fucked up when they came up with these deals. If they are hellbent on repeating offers they had only a month or two ago, at least match what you had before with $40 Injustice and $40 God of War. These coupons are worthless, and I can't picture any GC member making use out of half of these, except maybe to give them away to non-members.

It seems pretty apparent to me that this is as close to nothing as they could offer this month. They have to release coupons for members, and they can't just release a bunch of $5 off Ninjabread man and Aliens Colonial Marines coupons without dealing with a sea of angry members, so they pull this. I love Best Buy to death, but this seems like an uncharacteristically dickheaded move from them.

The optimist in me hopes for some price drops that make these coupons good or outstanding. The pessimist in me expects very little. However, it does seem a little early to bash Best Buy when the coupons aren't even active yet and there is still a month's time worth of potential price drop or sales opportunities that could result in everyone clamoring for these coupons. Of course, I said the same thing last month...

I don't know how it is at your store, but the store near me that actually keeps a decent stock of games has quit stacking the coupons with sales prices a long time ago. Yes, I know the coupons say they can't do that, in bold even, but they do and all the bitching and phonecalls I've placed haven't changed a thing. So, yeah, even if these games did go on sale it wouldn't help me or anyone else shopping at that store. That and the poor coupons are why I allowed my sub to expire.

Not that they've had sales on these coupon games in awhile, not that I can recall.

I love all the bitching about $10 off injustice. Until it goes on sale for $39.99. Then, it's, "Got injustice for $30!!! So glad I didn't buy on release day! I knew this would drop!" etc etc etc (No I don't think injustice will drop to $39.99. I'm just saying how about we wait till the END of a month to bitch about the coupons?)

These early @Gamer announcements are getting way too predictable. It's like an Amazon Gold Box Deal announcement. What? No Barbie Horse Adventure or Zumba joke yet? I mean, we have people who aren't even subscribers anymore bitching about them.

Yes, March last year spoiled us. But that's over now. Either move on or PLEASE, I'M BEGGING YOU not to renew.

I've never had a problem getting any coupon to stack with a sale price. I know different stores are more problematic, though, so I don't doubt those who have had that problem. Now that coupons are digital for many, that should make it even easier for people with that problem since the website doesn't try to restrict coupon use with a sale price (I think).

To be clear, i've never had a coupon work on a price match, but it's not supposed to anyway.

Borderlands 2 at $10 would be an absolute steal. There is so much content to that game and the co-op is done so well.

I'm not irritated that they are only offering a new game for $10 off. Yes, other retailers have done better, but Injustice is still what, 2 weeks old? $10 isn't a terrible deal a brand new game, especially one as great as Injustice. Were they to offer $10 off Luigi's Mansion, Monster Hunter 3, or Fire Emblem Awakening, or any other games that haven't been on sale at BB yet, I don't think there'd be many complaints.

What I'm concerned about is that these deals are WEAKER than deals they've already offered within the last month or so. They already had a deal on Injustice for GC members who preordered it. Not only did they have the same deal for God of War pre-orders, but they also had a $20 coupon available to pretty much everyone who knew about it. Offering LESS than that is insulting for a paid membership. I'm not expecting $10 Need for Speed or $5 Mass Effect 3, but if people are paying for the membership, they should at least be getting NEW deals that beat what you can pricematch on Amazon right now. Not deals that can't even beat what Best Buy themselves offered weeks ago. After all, why pay for the membership if I can get a better deal just pricematching?

This seems like a pretty transparent attempt to offer nothing this month. They have to release coupons since people paid for the memberships, but they are trying to pull a fast one by intentionally releasing coupons that are, for all intents and purposes, worthless. Which is unacceptable when they charge $15 a year for a membership. After all, any members interested in a $15 rebate on GoW would have taken the $20 preorder or the $20 off coupon awhile back. Or just pricematch for $38 on Amazon. Same with Injustice, who is going to redeem the $10 coupon when Best Buy was giving $20 reward zone rebates at the game's launch? These are deals they had weeks ago, so unless they somehow got a huge influx of new members over the last few weeks, then there's very little here to appeal to GC members, and they should know that.

If these titles go on sale great, but like I said above, some stores still refuse to stack with the sale prices, so unless they keep the stock on bestbuy.com up that doesn't help everyone. As of now, I don't think anyone can argue against the fact that, at the very least, the Injustice and God of War coupons are insulting.

I've never had a problem getting any coupon to stack with a sale price. I know different stores are more problematic, though, so I don't doubt those who have had that problem. Now that coupons are digital for many, that should make it even easier for people with that problem since the website doesn't try to restrict coupon use with a sale price (I think).

To be clear, i've never had a coupon work on a price match, but it's not supposed to anyway.


I never tried to use a coupon on a pricematch from another store. I have tried to get the store to use a coupon on a sale advertised on either Bestbuy.com or in the Best Buy weekly ad, and have been refused. During March's epic sale last year I did drive off to another Best Buy and did get them to use the coupon on the sale price for Arkham City, but the store near me doesn't do that.

You realize these deals are driven by the publishers, right? The fact that they were able to offer $20 in RZ points for preordering is because the publisher was pushing it. In fact, since week 1 sales are so important, there's a huge push to have preorder discounts. This happens with every title. You have preorder discount, go MSRP for a few weeks, have another discount, etc etc. Everyone on CAG knows the rhythm of these deals.

If the publisher isn't subsidizing the $20, do you expect best buy to eat the other $10 cost off of something that you pay $1.5 a month for? Every month on a different title?

Perhaps you shouldn't pay for the membership if you hate it so much.

Wasnt that like a deal of the day (I got a copy)? Then price went back up. And then BB totaly teabags us by having it for the same sale price a day after the coupon expired.

Yeah, something like that.

They likely won't drop the price on Borderlands 2 till after the coupon is over. Doom 3 had an MSRP drop to 19.99 and it didn't drop to that price till after the coupon was over. Granted I don't feel we should have gotten a game for free, but it pretty much made the coupon worthless.
