No mention of a trade bonus? If so, I guess that "knowledgeable" employee another CAG spoke to was wrong about the 100% returning.

Well, the last time there was a trade-in bonus it wasn't in the ad, so there's always a chance.

The ad scan on blu-ray.com makes it seem like it's only the gas card.

Also, Just Dance 2014 is on sale, not JSD4, if anyone cares

All I know is I went to do a trade-in and they told me to just wait until next week because they will be having the 100% trade in bonus. Also as far as that ad scan goes, the listing for the trade in bonus is usually on the far sides or very bottom of the ad, away from the pictures. Even if it were in the ad, from the pictures given on blu-ray (the only pics i can seem to find on internet) it's not enough to determine whether it's in the ad.

That's true; sorry if I sounded bitter. We'll just have to wait and hope. :pray:

Just a gas card. Best Buy excludes Nintendo games for legal reasons, according to a CS employee.

It's not because you didn't have coffee; it's because the wording is confusing. It most certainly implies that an additional $10 cert for GCU members comes with MK on top if the gas card. If not, then that wording needs big time fixing.

Also, "Gamers club or 'whatever'"? Don't you regularly post these BB ads? Surely you should know by now. Just say "GCU"

I should thank you for all the work of copying the ad from Blu-ray.com while not giving credit to the poster there? Your wording on the preorder incentives is bad and including "or whatever" shows that you don't care.

There is no $10 certificate for Mario Kart, just $10 gas cash. Still a good deal though.

    My Pokemart won't price match :(

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 11 May 2014 - 07:07 AM

I am not sure if this is news or not but, I did a price match for a Pre-Owned Fifa 14 Xbone 

 

the clerk asked her manager to drop the price. They offered $10 off sale price since it rang up $49.99 and sale price was $39.99 New. (I did not ask for a price match, I would of got Fifa New for $32 anyway and I DID NOT MENTION I HAD GCU). 

 

So she Price Matched 1st to $29.99  then added my GCU 10% from Pre-Owned

 

The price dropped to 26.XX then 29.97 with tax PRICEMATCH + 10% GCU STACKING

 

I have seen that some Post that GCU stacked with Price Matches but some managers added the GCU price in the price adjustment, however, GCU did this automatically.

 

I have Price Matched Pre-Owned before with B2G1 with the $19.99 AC:BF and it did not work. I always give them the GCU 1st from habit. So this was really weird to see it drop.

 

By this if you pricematch then add GCU then it should stack metaphorically. I might have gotten lucky or whatever but, i'm just putting out there for experimentation.
