Sale prices are active in store, that is where I found out about them. The sale prices also stack with the 15% off any guide discount with a video game purchase or 50% off welcome coupon. 15% off any guide discount with a video game purchase, does not stack with the 50% off welcome coupon discount, it will automatically void the 15% off.

 

Assassin's Creed fans or just fans of piggyback guides, I recommend the AC IV Black Flag CE guide. 8-)

 

Edit:

Psunami noticed a glitch when you add the guides to your cart, you get an additional 15% discount. I know the guides in store rings up exactly as the sale prices though.

I think that is a glitch you just found because I'm not sign into my GCU account and I see the glitched price in my cart. GCU doesn't offer any discounts on guides like PowerUP Rewards.

 

Edit: It only works if you add 1 guide to your cart.

BF4 Standard or AC IV Standard is $10.62 and BF4 CE or AC IV CE is $14.87. So essentially 15% off without needing to buy an additional game for those ordering online. :)

There must have been some type of glitch because I don't have GCU and I just ordered the Assassin's Creed IV Collector's Edition guide for $14.87. Sweet deal!

Yup, taking advantage of this tomorrow! Nice find! Definitely in for some ACIV HC goodness!

I never buy FPS guides, is it worth it?

Yeah, couldn't pass up ACIV Collector's guide, especially when I had a $10 rewards card burning a hole in my pocket.  Unfortunately I had to have it shipped since it was not in stock anywhere close.

I don't buy guides for multiplayer focused games. It only takes a patch for the information to be irrelevant due to map/stat changes by the developers.

Free piece of strategy for AC4 from me: don't buy it on PS4 if you're a completionist.  Fucking Ubisoft and their glitched online.

Tempted by ACIV.  Game is massive. The fact I have the 50% GCU welcome coupon is making it much more tempting. I never use guides though, like ever so may be just a waste of money (and these things are harder than hell to sell on eBay).

The information written in the guide for SP is more what I am wondering about. Does it also have any good concept art or anything else that would make it worth while?

I could care less about the multi player portion of the guide. I don't need someone to tell me how to suck. :P

This amazon review might help with your decision.

Thanks OP.  Used my 50% off one strategy guide coupon and scored the AC IV LE guide for $7.43.

 

The map that is included with the guide is massive.  It will definitely look great in my gaming room (along with the AC IV LE stuff I just picked up from Target on the cheap).  The guide looks very nice.  It's made to a higher standard than the usual Prima guide for sure.

It says "Prima Games" is the publisher for the Assassin's Creed IV guide but we can safely assume that's a mistake, right?

Piggyback has always done the AC guides in the past, however Black Flag is co-published by Prima this year.
It's still the excellent Piggyback quality, and the collector's edition is a very nice book. I'd definately recommend spending the extra couple bucks and getting that.

I certainly don't need a guide for Battlefield 4, but I love guides, and I'll probably read it.
....and its cheap.

Companies really need to drop the prices on game guides.
They would sell a ton more as impluse buys along with the game, if they were $15-$18.
I can't imagine people are adding another $25-$35 along with their $60 game very often.

Its too bad GCU doesn't take 20% off of guides also.

How did you get it for $7.43?  Does the 15% off stack with the 50% GCU welcome coupon in store?

Ended up ordering a AC4 CE guide, looks BA and will look good next to my ACIII CE guide I got on the cheap.

The 15% applied first ($14.87) and then the coupon took 50% off this amount.

Piggyback Guides are distributed by Prima (Random House Publishing) in the US as stated here.

There's also an offer to download the eGuide on Prima's website as well.
