Who said I was angry? I was just trying to have a discussion about the recent state of @gamer but i guess that's just bitching and moaning now.

Its just mostly funny that people say wait and dont judge till we see if there is a sale or MSRP drop but that hasnt happened in awhile.

Who cares?! Things change. I got my BJs coupons in the mail last month and their vitamins were more expensive than they were 3 months ago cause the coupon was only $1 off instead of $2 off. Do I find this insulting? Of course not. It's just business. Promotions change all the time. Sometimes for the better and some times for the worse.

Just because you pay $15 for a membership doesn't mean you're guaranteed a promotion that pleases you. It also doesn't mean that sometimes a non gamer club promotion won't be better.

Marketing dollars and marketing plans drive these sales. Getting angry about it makes no sense.


I like your replies. Haha. At least you understand how things work.

No offense but with that mentality, no wonder some people like to be getting ripped off. I'm just speaking about the GOW:A coupon, I don't know about the other coupons. Wouldn't have been better to have this coupon for free members and the big coupon for paid members? The way this coupon was offered was way too obvious: "Here, a 20 dollar coupon for being a free member. Here, a 15 dollar coupon for being a paid and we know you don't care about getting ripped off"

I don't know how it doesn't strike you as a little odd that they gave out a better coupon for free than the one they gave out for paid members. Could have at least give the same $20 off, lol.

If there's a coupon online you can print out for $1 off Colgate and a coupon in the Sunday newspaper (that you pay for) for only 50 cents off, do you scream bloody murder at your local newspaper for ripping you off?

How hard is it to just use the damn $20 coupon if you want the game?

People need to stop being so angry about every perceived slight that best buy (or any other retailer) commits.

Not every promo is going to go your way.

Does it make logical sense that free was $20 and gcu only had $15? No. But it's not the end of the world, especially considering there are other coupons and other months.

maybe it is a sign/hint, they might have a sale price drop on gow:a , to stack with the coupon. lol

Was there anything keeping the paid members from using the $20 coupon? If you wanted it for $20 less you were more than welcome to get it then. That coupon ended and is replaced by the $15 for paid members. We got the ability to use two separate coupons for it. Yes, it would have been nice to get another $20 off, but if you missed it the first time for whatever reason this gives you a second chance.

If its a game I really wanted I would have it already day 1 with the preorder promo for the same price as the $20 off. GoW A is a game im not playing till its like $15. I may be biased in this case though as I am primarily a 360 gamer. And also im just happy there are any RZ offers or Gamer coupons. There could be none at all. Would that make you happier?

There's no way of knowing if the $20 off is better than this $15 coupon until the end of the month. If BB has a sale on GoW for under $55 than the $15 coupon will be a better deal.

Bestbuy has gone out of its way to not allow sales or price drops to happen when the coupons are in effect....it'd be fine if they weren't so shady about doing it a couple months back though.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Personally, I've been considering the Airflow controller for the 360, going so far as to check its price at the store and at Bestbuy.com, since I got one for PS3 last year at a Sears clearance and it's pretty good for extended gaming sessions. I wouldn't get Airflow controllers at the regular price, but there's a good chance I will use that coupon next month.

I also think Borderlands 2 for $20 is pretty good. Great? Probably not. But if I'm not crazy about the DLC (and from what people have said, I don't know if I'm going to get the DLC this time around), I might end up using that coupon as well.

So, $20 off Borderlands (or $10, if the MSRP drop will happen immediately after the coupons expire) and $10 off a controller that sells for $32. That's $20-$30 saved in one month, and it's not even a *special month* like some of the extravaganzas last year. I consider that worth the subscription--and I actually prefer the print magazine over the digital, if there's any complaint I have it's that I will have to print out the coupons instead of just tearing them out of the magazine.

And even if there are just 3 or 4 months out of the year like that (going back a year to April 2012), I'm quite happy to renew. If I don't use any coupons between now and October (when I would renew) then I might consider not renewing. But as of now I still feel it has been value for the money.

I haven't even used the $20 credit for pre-ordering feature, since I usually wait for MSRP to drop before I consider purchasing, whether on sale or not. But if I did pre-order something between now and October (very well may pre-order Beyond: Two Souls), then so much the better. Getting a $20 credit toward the next pre-order (or towards Borderlands 2 for $20).

TL;DR: I'm probably going to use two of the coupons this month, so although there are no $5 or $10 steals (yet), I feel it's a fairly good (but not great) month for me as a GCU member.

I think some people (like yourself) forget that not everyone has the same mentality as you. Borderlands 2 was recently $20 dollars on the PSN and included a copy of Borderlands 1. Sure a hard copy might be "worth more", but it's hardly a unique price for that stuff. Same with Injustice, it has been and WILL BE (Kmart) cheaper elsewhere. Same with GoW: A, which was a FREE coupon last month for a price that's currently lower than what the coupon is offering.

Some people need to stop jumping to extremes and think every complaint is coming from someone looking for a free - $10 dollar game and simply accept / realize some people want better deals from their subscription. With the way the price match policy is now, the ever present "well you can get your money back from 1 preorder" excuse is now invalid. Especially when you consider most of these games are quickly dropping in price.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Borderlands 2 for $10, if it drops in price, is a good deal and one I'd take advantage of. The rest of these coupons? Nothing that interests me. Oh well. I've gotten plenty of other awesome deals in the year I've been subscribed - like $10 Sleeping Dogs ($5 after RZ cert) a couple weeks ago.

Incorrect BestBuy most certainly cares if you complain online but complaining on this thread does little to nothing. However, if people voice their complaints here change will come. We(the CAG community have already voted and got changes put in place)

A lot of you are making incredible points that BestBuy needs to hear from YOU my vote only counts once & I've done all I can do at this point. Take the disccussion to the ideax thread & make a real difference.

Or you can do what I did recently, order something online for in-store pickup using the RZ cert(s) and then either cancel the order or let the pickup window expire. The points will be eventually refunded in the form of a new RZ cert with a new expiration date.

I don't know if "abusing" this creates any kind of flag for an account, so maybe someone with more experience trying this can chime in.
