I've been waiting for this deal to come back around.  Best Buy will be running a half-off their Gamers Club Unlocked membership from 5/25 - 5/31.  It's normally $119.99 and will be on sale for $60.  They run this promo every once in a while and it makes the membership worthwhile.

 

Assuming Best Buy is still around for 2 years, here's what you'll get:

 

Gamers Club Unlocked Benefits:
Get 20% off new video games for 2 full years
Get 2x base points on new video game software, digital content, and game accessories
Get 2 points for every dollar when you trade-in games
Get points on gaming consoles
Redeem Reward Certificates on nearly everything at Best Buy
10% bonus trade-in credit on your video game software trade-ins
10% off pre-owned games
Buy two, get the third free on pre-owned games via special welcome coupon
Save 50% on a new strategy guide via special welcome coupon
 
I'm still not sure what's going on with their magazine but I assume if it's still being posted digitally, it would probably be included also.

The magazine is not included. The last digital issue was already released and the the new GCU never included @gamer. Only people with the old sub got the mag up until the last month in May here.

Sorry, yes, you do need to buy this one in-store.  That's why I couldn't take advantage last time they ran the promo.

Definitely worth it, jumped on this the last time around and I've been laughing at everyone that buys at MSRP reserve at my store (GS.)

On top of the fact that there's always bonuses, such as the pendant for eso, or the $10 gift certificates for pre-ordering + reward points. It pays itself off quick..

Well worth it don't listen to it the idiots that will be in here soon bashing it..
I bought it the last time it was on sale and I've already saved over what I paid and if you count the glitch a couple weeks ago I've over doubled what I paid not even three months in

Oh wait, so if I sign up Sunday that means I should get an additional $12 off of MK8. There's one down already. I'm in.

To sign up, when I did it at least, just ask one of the people at the registers. They keep the cards under the register.

This is a great deal. I'd renewed in February and got it for $30. I say grab this deal while you can. You can't beat 20% off on NEW games, especially when a game is already on sale.

I believe  this mornings events prove the value of GCU.  Even without the Gamer Coupons best game money I've ever spent.

 Well beside  buying Mass Effect.   O:)

I'm thinking of sharing GCU with a friend(registered on my account), would he need me to go with him everytime he wants to get something?

Can I price match a game from Amazon and then use the 20% off discount after the match? Or is that 20% off pretty limiting?

 

Example, I saw Bravely Default at BB for 40 but on Amazon it was 34, could I have them match that to 34 from showing them my phone and then ask them to apply a 20% discount due to the unlocked thing?

Nope.  He just needs to give them the phone number on the account when he buys a game.

Their terms of service state that price matching and the 20% discount cannot be combined.  You get one or the other.

Thanks, one more question, if I buy a game today and then get the Gamers Club on Sunday - could I retroactively use the 20% off?

Via a return/rebuy or a CS rep who knows how to give you the credit without a return/rebuy, shouldn't be a problem either way.

If you buy with a year left on your current unlocked subscription, will it just tack on 2 more years at the end?

Would have loved this a year or 2 ago, but my store has shrunk the game section (and all media for that matter) so much it just wouldn't be worth it.

Yes

 

To be clear, the 20% off is valid for any new (read: unopened and not used or pre-owned) game. This includes any special editions of a game that are released.
