Posted this in the Unlocked thread but thought it might deserve its own thread.

 

Two year membership for $60 instead of the regular $119.99. Don't have to buy anything else to get the deal. Today (Monday) and Tuesday only. In store only.

 

Just go into your local Best Buy, grab one of the Unlocked cards (they're blue, kind of look like an Xbox Live card), take it to the register and it will ring up for $60. Make sure you buy any new or preowned games you want on the same transaction and you'll get 20% off the new ones and 10% off the preowned immediately. Takes about one day for the membership details to load into the system. Will be able to use your discount online or in-store. Have to be a MyBestBuy Member before signing up for Unlocked. Can do that online or in the store as well. Just need a MyBestBuy member number so you can get your discounts going forward.

 

And if you haven't preordered Titanfall and are interested, might as well do that today as well. You'll get a $10 MyBestBuy cert for preordering and purchasing the first week. Get that about 15 days after you buy the game. And yes, you'll get 20% off the game as well for being Unlocked.

 

And yes, you can use your gift cards from the Xbox One trade-in deal being talked about here ($45 for select Xbox One games, ends Tuesday as well) to sign up for Unlocked.

 

Happy Titanfall everybody.

Is the offer worth it if you are a WiiU/3DS/PS3/PC owner with no plans on buying a PS4 for probably at least 2 years and never buying an Xboner? I feel like most of the deals I see in this forum through BBGU are for PS and Sony, not Nintendo. But if all games are 20% off, maybe that is worth it alone.

All video games are 20% even ones on sale (not price matched ones) and as a Wii u owner, it's the only way to get nintendo titles on sale!

It's worth it, even for nintendo games. Although I think a majority of the deals are Microsoft/Sony.

 

I just picked up Lego City for the 3DS the other day. Showed as 29.99 on the web I think but in store it was 24.99 or something on the tag. With GCU I saved another 5 bucks. Out the door for a little over 20 after tax. Not bad... You'll find deals like this from time to time. Plus on newer games even for Nintendo, you're saving about 12 bucks per purchase. But that goes for anything. I would definitely snag this up for $60 if money isn't an issue. Just my opinion.

 

On preorders, you're getting 10 in rewards and are saving 20% at the time of purchase. You can't beat that with a stick if you're one to buy day one releases!

Wow, great deal for those not yet GCU members--I can honestly say that GCU is one of the best memberships I've ever had based on the awesome deals and 20% discount on new games. :bouncy:

OP, any news on when those of us who renewed with the $30 2-year coupon will have the GCU expiration year on our account fixed? My date still says 2015 when it should be 2016.

Hmm...I hate Best Buy but I love saving money on day 1 game releases.  Quite the moral dilemma.  I'm not sure I can count on my local store getting stock of things in a timely fashion, does anyone else have any experience on whether or not their stores get games on release date reliably?

at the very least you can preorder for store pickup and they will have it at customer service on release day. other than niche titles though, my best buy has everything out on release day

I've been getting my games day 1 from Best Buy for at least a year now and I can only think of one time when they didn't have a game yet (Xcom Enemy Within, which was a smaller release).

Does anyone know if you can stack the membership? Like if I'm unlocked until 2015 can I buy this and be unlocked until 2017 (assuming bb is around that long)?

I've almost made my money back in under 2 months without a ps4 or xbone, but that also includes a ton of 360 games from that b2g1 glitch/deal.  Supply in stores and online of older gen is dwindling fast, but if you have a list of titles you plan on buying soon, especially 1st party nintendo, it will probably work out for you.  I keep waiting for some kind of wiiu/3ds sale or b2g1, but they keep holding out.

I'm really tempted, planning to pick up TItanfall (360) and the Diablo 3 expansion so thats like $20 in savings already. Just got to save $40 in the next 2 years to justify this purchase haha.

 

Anyone know exactly where these GCU "cards" are located? I'm guessing the game section, but to be honest I've never seen them.

Is this deal available at all stores?  I was looking thru their website in the deals and such but can't find any proof of this being on sale.  I just don't want to go to the store and have it ring up at $120 and have nothing to show them that it should be 50% off

Why can I still not pull the trigger for $60? I feel like I'd be locking myself into only buying games from Best Buy for 2 years. If there were still a magazine is bite.

yeah but they'll PM amazon and the likes, so i'm assuming you can use the 20% off with a PM?

well that's a bummer. it only takes 5 brand new games at $60 to pay for itself...so if you're a day one guy like me i guess it's good.

Woohoo!  Thanks OP!  As of 10 minutes ago, I am now officially a GCU member.  No more need to be jealous of all you GCU guys anymore.  Let the deals begin.  :D

 

I'm really tempted, planning to pick up TItanfall (360) and the Diablo 3 expansion so thats like $20 in savings already. Just got to save $40 in the next 2 years to justify this purchase haha.

Depends on your store.  Mine were located by the Xbox/MS point cards, near where they hang those pre-order cardboard things.

 

Is this deal available at all stores?  I was looking thru their website in the deals and such but can't find any proof of this being on sale.  I just don't want to go to the store and have it ring up at $120 and have nothing to show them that it should be 50% off

I don't know if it's all stores, but it's a legit sale.  There is a sign right above the GCU membership cards that says "Sale $60."  If it's not $60 for you, just don't pay and say you changed your mind.  Not a big deal.

 

Why can I still not pull the trigger for $60? I feel like I'd be locking myself into only buying games from Best Buy for 2 years. If there were still a magazine is bite.

You wouldn't really be locking yourself in.  You don't need to buy games on day one.  The 20% discount applies to all non-pre-owned games.  With all the deals and "deals" that have been going on in the past few months, you would've more than made up your $60 fee.

irishsoccermbw, go on the BestBuy forums and PM one of the mods.  I allowed my $30 Coupon for a 2 Year renewal to expire too but I asked nicely and they reissued it to me via email.  Going to go after work and renew for two years at $30! :) 

 

Only catch is I believe your membership still needs to be active and not expired.  Its worth a shot. (I was shut down when I called 888 BESTBUY and also when I emailed support.  Only sending a PM to a Mod on the forums I was able to get it reissued which is BS but Ill take it :) )
