I'm tempted to do this multiple days as I'm looking to get Mario 3D World and Tropcal Freeze. Not sure its worth the risk of banning since it'll be link to my GCU account.

They won`t ban for that unless you also got 4+ of the same game w/GCU.

Pretty sure this would be
1- in-store only
2- wouldn`t work with a pm w/o manager override
3- Only apply to new games

Can someone please tell me where to find this coupon? I just got back from BB and dealt with the store manager and the guy did not honor it despite bringing the printout. He refused so I ended up paying 10 bucks more than I should have for W101. The guy said he'd never seen it before and that he couldn't override it (obviously lying). I'm going to call customer service tomorrow and complain.

Just got back and it worked on Just Dance 2014 with Wiimote. Total with GCU came to 40.79. If you need an extra remote and/or want to try Just Dance this is a great deal.

it doesnt work on w101 because it is a clearance game. the coupon excludes all clearance games. only works on new and sale wii u games.

They had a stack on the customer service desk when I went in. Not surprised they had no idea about the coupon when you went in seeing how the majority of the employees at my local BB never even heard of the gamers club to begin with.

Asgaga is right, the coupon does exclude clearance items but I'll admit that Best Buy does a horrible job of marking clearance items in store sometimes. If you call in any complaint it should probably be related to how the manager handled it if anything. If he was trying to help but ultimately couldn't figure out why it didn't work and apologized for not being able to honor it give him a break as he probably didn't know the game was on clearance. If he was a total dick and out right questioned the authenticity of the coupon even though it is from Best Buy then yes, proceed to make a comment regarding it.

Didnt see it at the Best Buy i went to. I just showed him the picture and he put the number in the computer. Took off $10 from a preowned SM3DW since they didnt have any new ones left.

No go for the $10 coupon. They say it was a regional promotion.

They wouldn`t accept it or wouldn`t get it for you? In-store you can have one of the pc reps demo a printer & print the actual coupon from the OP. I doubt it`s a regional promotion otherwise it would've been stated in the employee newsletter.

I tried it with a printed coupon and it worked (although not very smoothly).  I handed the cashier my GCU card, the coupon and the game.  She scans the game, the card, and then the coupon and the discount for the GCU disappears.  I tell her that she should scan the coupon before the card and she starts in about how you can't have two discounts.  She calls over management who basically agrees with her.  I have to explain that GCU isn't a coupon but rather a discount that I paid for upfront.  The manager didn't have much of a comeback and said if the cashier could make it go through it's fine.  She voided the transaction and scanned game, coupon and then card and everything went smoothly.   The positive is that the coupon itself was never questioned.

Is it just me or does GAMER CLUB UNLOCKED NOT MAKE ANY SENSE.  So I probably purchase 3 games a year on release date.  That equals to a savings of 72 dollars over 2 years.  The rest of the games I purchase are usually on sale via steam or used games.  Yes you also get the magazine but I have not used one coupon out of those.  My membership will expire this summer and I dont see how I could renew my membership.

Well judging by your purchase pattern, you paid off the sale GCU sub and saved an additional $12. Is that worth it to you?

It`s been said over & over & over you DON`T base it on just day 1 purchases b/c the 20% comes off sale prices too & stacks with other promotions/coupons/offers creating far greater savings than just 20% off. You either have to spend $300 over 2 yrs in any form $1 games to $250 games it doesn`t matter just reach $300. Factoring in trades/credits/GCU only offers also can be factored in too. Basically, if you buy only $60 games on sale at BB for $40 you`ll earn a completely free $40 game for every 5th game you buy & that`s w/o any extras.

How much did you spend on physical games over the last 2 yrs? If the physical & digital game are the same price which do you prefer? Are you going to trade in games when there`s good value? Over the next 2 yrs are going to spend $150 per yr? Those are the main questions ponder.

Edit: How active are you on CAG or in relation to BB/GCU deals in general? @Gamer is offically dead & in recent months there were plenty of good deals ranging from free games to cheap ones with sale stacks. The last 4-5 @gamer threads had more people begging for coupons or trading/selling them than actual usage posts. Also being that your sub is soon to expire then you should`ve used the $30 2 year re-up coupon vs having to settle for a 50% off sale. Since that would be just $15 per yr 1 new release w/tax per yr would just about break even.

Unfortunately all the games I'd want to purchase are clearance titles, which aren't covered by this coupon.

Went to my local BBY yesterday and just pulled up a saved download of this flyer from the OP's post.

 

The manager who I have dealt with positively numerous times over the years had no problem letting me buy three different games using the Coupon from my phone on three different transactions.  Doesn't hurt that I'm Elite Plus and usually buy most of my stuff from this store

 

Duck Tales  $19.99 - $10.00 - 20% =$7.99

Scriblenauts Unmasked $25.99 - $10.00 - 20% = $12.79

Just Dance Kids 2014 $23.99 - $10 - 20% = $11.19

 

These games will keep my kids some additional variety on top of MK8.

Coupons never work with digital games. You can try but even though it doesnt specifically say it, there is like a 98% it won't work.

 

I would much rather get it digital though mainly because of the $5 back promo. Seriously if X1 added that on top of the Rewards program I would buy everything digitally.

So the coupon says it excludes clearance games.

 

But surprise, almost every game I click on the Best Buy site is clearance.

Bummer. I'll give it a try but keep expectations low. I was just going to get Luigi U anyway.

best buy never carried them in stores but only online on the website and they been sold out online for months now. So a restock online is very slim since there haven't been one yet
Edit: never mind I just checked the website and it not even listed on the website no more so that leave out even a slim restock

duck tales wii u at gamestop is 7$ base value so with this coupon, gcu and the usps coupon (if you found one) its under 5$. trade it in to gamestop with the make a wish 40% coupon and pur for 10.50$ :D

Duck tales didn't work at $15.99 plus the coupons. The $10 off only works when the game rings up as $19.99. I don't know how you got it to work considering its a clearanced item. If you did get it to work.

Managed to get the coupon to work for a digital download of New Luigi U. The manager was okay with it since nothing specifically said that it doesn't work on digital, but I think that it helped that it was the third of three transactions that all went wrong on their end, so I think that he was willing to just let it go.
