Does Best Buy match Amazon prices? I know Target does, but I have never tried with Best Buy.

 

As long as it is shipped and sold by Amazon. Last time I price matched something, I just had the Amazon product page pulled up on my phone and showed the cashier. It should be an easy process.

So how exactly does this work? Do you bring two eligible games and a $50 gift card to the register and the gift card will ring up free? TIA.

Thinking about the Buy 2 deal with Skyrim and Deadpool, especially since I got a triple points thingy for my birthday, so maybe I'll get a Reward certificate on top of it.

Either that or they'll grab a GC off the rack.  Shouldn't matter much unless the GC rack is far from the register.

The 360 E still confuses me... unless I was misinformed it's basically the same size and doesn't add anything but instead takes things away (why in the WORLD would you take out the optical port when it supports surround sound?!?).  Yet, it's the same price for some odd reason (and in a way it's more since there's been so many deals on the S).

Here is hoping I can find Deadpool for $30 and FC3 for $20 next week...I traded in FC3 for the $20 bonus on amazon. But if I could get both games essentially for free then I am in.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

sigh another week of no deals for dmc and dead space 3 smh. hopefully this months @gamer will have coupons for them so i can stack them with my 20$ cirtificate. im almost caught up with what i want to play on my ps3, bring on next gen !

 

Damn, how'd you miss the $11-$12 Target Dead Space deal from a month ago? It's $40 @ Gamestop now so you could pm them. Other than that a better sale from GS along with the b-day code could net a $20ish copy but then you'd be waiting even longer.

http://www.cheapassg.../#entry10515533

It's not particularly clear, is the $50 gift card for the games listed below it?  I'd probably wouldn't mind doing that for Deadpool and Tomb Raider, maybe.

^^^ I look at TR the same way since it was just $20 maybe 2-3 weeks ago used.

 

I've done tons of these pm's before the key is to have the GC on hand, let them know what/where your matching BEFORE THEY TOTAL the transaction & prompt the GC. This is one of the few times where it's better to get the match @ the reg. registers vs CS. If you can add some filler to the transaction that would be good too.

 

Sweet $200 for 2 DI-R CE's, 2 Skyrim LE's, Deadpool & Defiance comes out to about $34 each works for me.

I'm gonna get the $50 GC deal on the 2 $40 DI-R rigor mortis CE's I picked up on last sat. take it to make deadpool/defiance $25 each & take that $50 GC making 2 Skyrim $35 each.

There is nothing preventing you from price matching AND getting the gift card, in the past when they have had this deal, (the closest to this was only a $40 gift card in early December) I was able to price match and still receive the gift card. Anyone planning to place an order over the phone, through a phone rep, might want to look up a few thing's. 1. The SKU's of each item you plan to get from Best Buy (INCLUDING the gift card, when the sale goes live just add the two games to your cart, gift card should add automatically, and then click on it to go to it's page and see the specific one, will probably be the $50 blue giftcard, although what they actually send is a gamble.).
2. Find the item page on the specific site you will be pricematching, if it has an item # for easy searching, giving that to the phone rep will speed thing's up a little bit. 3. If you have EVER made a purchase on the site before, make sure to give the rep your email address and or reward zone #, so that from that you don't have to go through your shipping address and everything with them, and it will show in your order history immediately after they finalize it. (NOTE: You CANNOT use paypal through the phone rep, so anyone with the funds on paypal, transfer them to your bank asap, or order a gift card for in store pick up.)

4. VERIFY VERIFY VERIFY, MAKE SURE BEFOREHAND that you know what the total should come out to be, and MAKE SURE that they have the gift card in the order (If it did not automatically add then have them add it themselves, which is why you needed the SKU of the gift card that will register free with the qualifying games.) "Game A is $xx and Game B is $xx? Good, and just double checking the gift card is also included and showing as free? Good."

5. There is NOTHING stopping you from placing multiple orders at the same time, but make sure they are DIFFERENT order's (Only 1 free gift card per transaction). Just let the phone rep know that this is such a great deal and you would like to place another order, and then repeat.
Bonus Note: You CAN ask the game's be shipped to store, or select in store pick up if they are available (The gift card, I am pretty sure is only available to be shipped)
SUPER BONUS: If they are not able to price match, than they are able to offer you a 10% discount on the game, so if you are buying full price, ask if they are able to offer a discount, it never hurts and if they say no they say no, but if they say yes :)...

^^^correct the system shouldn't be an issue but if the reps are aware of the GC deal it sets up the easy "double dipping" denial.

Isn't it only double dipping if you're trying to use a bestbuy coupon and pricematch?

It's like pointing to their policy on not matching other retailers gift card promos, it shouldn't relate to the matter.

One of my local BB's has a great clearance section always 50% off they had just put their last two on clearance. They tend to put stuff on clearance that really shouldn't be though which works out great. Niche titles like P4G end up there in 1-2 months & huge overstocks like TTT2. They also had the portable gaming devices, COD BO2 CE's, SF 25th Anniversary on clearance as well. The only bad part is they let the best gaming guy leave so I get no heads up. But they deals are solid.

Max Payne was $10 too sold out fast.

Think the buy 2 get $50 gift card would work with title like Tomb Raider collector edition and Dead island collector edition provide that they are still 44.99 come sunday?  I just happen to bough a tomb raider collector but it is not open yet.  I am thinking if a return and rebuy  and add another title would work.  Unfortunately that tomb raider collector edition has been removed from the database.

Defiance is on sale at Fry's for $40 til Thurs. So if you buy that + maybe Deadpool it's like buying both games for $20 each if you look at it as GC = CASH or even better if you have credit already, but the way TIV have been shitty lately at BBY not a lot of Cags have credit there anymore.

Even though the ad may not state "standard" edition suppose this would work on the CE of Tomb Raider? If it does, I'm sold. FC3 at $20, then if the CE of Tomb Raider stays at $45, your looking at $15 for both...hmm..or is the CE deal over?

Doing this online does not work as of right now.  It automatically adds the $50 gift card to your cart if you pick two valid games, but on the final check out screen, it charges you for the $50 gift card.  The code/flag to make the $50 gift card free is not working yet.  FYI.

 

Someone update or correct me if they can get it working please.  Thanks.

Why would you include FC3 in this deal? It was $19.99 just this week and has no reverted back to full price.... you are under utilizing the deal if you buy FC3.

Unless someone else has it for $19.99 this sales week I think it's safe to say it won't be $19.99 on Amazon once they update their prices at 3AM EST.

I wonder about this too.  I bough tomb raider last week for 45 and it is nto open, so if this work, I will do a return and rebuy and geta game free technically.

EDIT: I have a B2G1 coupon on new games from my welcome package for RZ. Can I use that with this to get Tomb Raider for free?
