Thanks for sharing.  Debating on going on a splurge and going for 100$ for the 15$ gift card.  Last of Us collectors isn't coming up half off though... :(

Just got my welcome coupons for 50% off strategy guides. So another 50% off for me. Thanks!

 

EDIT: Going to get the Legend of Zelda (Limited Edition Game Guide Box Set) for $45 (after GCU welcome coupon). Time to ship it to a BB store and get it for cheap. Great deal again, thank you!

 

b/c I can't use the coupon online, can I just buy for in store pickup and do a return / immediate rebuy with the coupon? Is there a restocking wait?

Or can I pay for it over the phone and have them apply the coupon, then ship to me?

I'm only seeing a handful of them 50 percent off. And that's only the ones I already knew about.

If you could tie in the 50% off GCU signup coupon with the Zelda collector's set of guides, that could be a great deal.  $44.95 for that guide set would be pretty great.

Best Buy operates by CST. It is already 12/29.

I'm not sure why the sale doesn't apply to "all" guides even though I copy and pasted the promotion word for word from best buy...

I'm going to try to do the same thing.  The only possible hangup would be the coupon not stacking with this sale.  Need someone to confirm if the coupon will stack with the sale in-store.

 

Also adding any game in the same transaction takes an additional 15% off the guide.

I tried to use the coupon in store today and it came up as a phone activation.  

 

Had to get a manager override to get it to work on the Assassin's Creed IV collector's guide.  

 

Benefit to the manager override though is the fact that it doesn't show that it has been used yet.  Really anxious to try it on that Zelda set as well.

The Last of Us Collector's Edition is probably the one I've had my eye on for a while. I really want that Firefly pendant keychain. I just can't justify spending more than $10-$15 or so on it because I've already got the Platinum trophy for the game. Definitely my GotY for 2013 though.

Well... not available for shipping. Guessing it has hit SD by now.

There is a 24 hour wait time to do an online return in store.

^Well that was quick. Guess I should order for store pickup now and see what happens. I want to know if I can return / rebuy easily though.

 

EDIT: Well fark me. Can't do in store pickup anymore. Well, guess this Zelda deal is dead.

Simple way to sort the guides, on the left select the option for "on sale" you will notice that there are in fact only 29 of them on sale. Which is a far toss from "all"

was half tempted to pick up that GTA5 LE guide, but I don't really need it. I think it was just the big green "V" on the solid black that was tempting me (green is my fav color). GTA5 is great and all, but there are plenty of user-generated guides online for free. I'm not a big guide person myself

Is this part of the weekly sale, or is it a daily deal? I was waiting for the welcome package, which I haven't received yet. I'm going to call GCU on Monday to see whether the coupon stacks. If not, I'll just get the Skyrim Collector's on this sale and something else when I get the welcome package coupon.

I bought the Mario 3D World guide (when amazon had it for $16.XX), haven't opened it yet, but the cover art alone was enough for me to buy it. Comes with a bonus calendar.

Should be a weekly deal, it is posted along with all the other weekly deals. Just wasn't in the weekly ad. The 50% off coupon should stack with sale prices. It worked for me when I bought AC IV Black Flag CE a few days ago.
