In the weekly ad but felt it deserved it's own thread.

It breaks down to 25% off each game, but when you also have GCU it becomes an even better deal.

The Wii U games end up at $90 for two, while the 3DS games end up at $60 for two.

 

GCU members will end up with $71.98 for two Wii U games, and $47.98 for two 3DS games. (Before tax)

 

The list includes Super Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, Zelda ALTTP, Pokemon X & Y, The New Mario Party for the 3DS, Animal Crossing New Leaf, and a few others.

Just picked up 3DW tonight, currently enjoying the heck out of this amazing gem of a game. Any chance I could do a return/rebuy tomorrow and pick up WWHD for 25?

That's not out fault! We tryed to convince people when they kept saying "GCU isn't worth it". But anyway many of us DO have it, which is why I included the separate values for each.

Don't get me wrong, I had it when it first came out but never renewed it since the coupons were getting lame, I wasn't trading anything in, and BBY was being a pain with their own coupons.

It's either $90, or its $72 (Plus tax for either), but for nintendo games, they rarely drop or go on sale. Its not a GREAT deal for regular members, but its still decent, and for people with GCU its pretty amazing (Close to buy 1, get 1 for $10 more.)

 

I underestimated how crazy some sales get with an extra 20% off the top, I find myself spending REAL money.... WTH!

I was told by the BB associate that the GCU 20% only came off msrp purchases. I have gcu and it didn't pull anything off during my black Friday spree. :-\

Were you buying through a phone rep? Because that associate was flat wrong. It takes 20% off of new games, meaning new at ANY price.

You might wanna check to see if the orders had been properly tied to your account. I and many others on here can tell you from experience that from MSRP to the cheapest sale price the 20% DOES come off.

I took the $71.98 from my order total of two copies of Super Mario 3D World a couple hours ago (Already had all the other Wii U games, and figured I could sell/trade/gift the second copy).

 

Whenever an associate tells you something specific, assume they are wrong. It is the sad truth but that's the way it is. Just like at gamestop when I need to explain their own promos to them, at best buy they have the best deals, but not the brightest crayons in the packs as employees, whether they were misinformed, or just assume something, most times they are wrong.

Posted this in another thread, but if anyone with GCU would be kind enough to order me Mario 3d world and Wind Waker, I'd appreciate it and would paypal you the money back.

For further negotiations pm me. Maybe we can work out some kind of deal involving sharing my amazon prime membership and your gcu unlocked membership

Picked up two copies of Super Mario 3D World, can probably trade it back in for $44 when it shows up in the trade-ins.

I never seen Best Buy take in a 1st party Nintendo Wii U/3DS game for more than $25...

Wayyyy too expensive. These Nintendo's games should be 10 or 20 dollars each.

None of those games are for young children. They are for older children and adults. They all seem extremely mediocre too. Speaking of which, I own a wind Waker Wii U and didn't buy any games for it yet. Nothing worth buying at these prices.

Thanks OP. Somehow overlooked this in the weekly ad thread, but have been looking for a good deal on Luigi's Mansion & the new Zelda. 40% off after the sale and GCU discount works for me.

Eh, I prefer the title everyone on the internet has been throwing around.  Super Mario HD Land.

Might as well call the game what it really is after all...

PM me to add me to PSN, Steam, WiiU, or 3DS. Always up for a Brawl matchup too!

Still, if I had GCU, HD Land + Pikmin 3 would be an insta-buy.  As it stands I think I'll wait for a B2G1 that will inevitably hit in the few months or so after the holidays.


B2G1..... Mathematically, wouldn't that be the same as B1G1 50% off! except it would force you to pay for two games?
