- Trade any 2 games, get any preorder for $29.99. I forgot to check if XBox 360 games are included in the deal, but as most people have already stated, I highly doubt it.

- The two games that are traded in for the deal must retail for at least $7.99 each (preowned price).

- The credit can still be applied towards the $29.99.

You know BB continue to amaze me. I found another way to maximize my BB experience last night.

I'm a member of the all you can eat online BB rental, and as part of that promotion I get 2 free rentals a month (Game or Movies).

Last night I decided to rent Capcom Classics for XBOX, I'm sure everyone knows that if you don't return an item to BB that you will effectively buy it.

What I noticed last night is that my receipt had the final buy price for the game I was renting, a whopping 12$, yes the full 8$ coupon value had been subtracted from the game price. I commented to the clerk, that at 12$ I would be nuts to return the game. He goes, Oh!! If your not going to return the game I can give you the case and cover.

Score!!!

So I effectively got a brand new game for 40% off (12$ instead of 20), of course the % off will vary based upon the game, but you will be getting an 8$ discount for every game you keep.

I will now never buy a 20$ game, but rather use my free rentals as discount coupons :)

That's a really good idea. I might have to look into trying Blockbuster online now. Is there a promotional code you need to use to get the coupons or is it just part of the plan? I briefly looked at Blockbuster's website and didn't see any info about the rental coupons.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm an idiot and the info on the coupons is on the front page of the Blockbuster site.

You get two coupons per month that you print out. Its really quite slick. I considered that, but so far the games I've rented have still been hideously expensive: I could have paid an additional $42 for Starfox Assault... cause who doesn't want a used game for $50?; and even Lost Kingdoms was still going for $20, when I picked it up for $7.49 after coupons from EB.

But for new bargain games, I can see that being a good deal, especially if you get a nice, like-new disc and they have the case/manual.

Thats why paying $16 for a month of free rentals from BBOnline is so great... I get that money back by using my two free rental coupons, even if I do nothing else.

I think I might do the $9.99 version where you only have 1 movie out at a time. It appears that I still would get the coupons with that. That would mean only paying $10 and getting $16 in coupons. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Wow, I figured out how to finish off all my outstanding BB credit.

Dead to Rights 2 still gets $27, I'm gonna pick that up for $15 after GGC at Best Buy. Two copies of Trivial Pursuit will get me about $8 each, and I'm dumping Medal of Honor: Rising Sun that I got for $5 at Best Buy ($4.25 credit). $30 in purchases gets me $47 in credit, plus the $1.xx I still have on my account and a $10 gift card. So I'll be preordering Super Mario Strikers and something else, will probably need about $3 out of pocket.

This will be a fun Friday.

Anyone happen to know if either Gun or Starcraft: Ghost (not due out till February according to EB, December for GS) for GC are in the system yet?

Other than those two, I'm looking at either Mario Party 7 (I have Mario Party 4, so this one isn't high on the list), Shadow the Hedgehog, or Ghost Recon 3.

Are the used game prices at GR set nationally? They always have several copies of a game with different price tags, and I've noticed that sometimes NONE of the tags are correct. I finally decided to get KOTOR 2 today... saw it at one GR for $35, then went to another and saw it for $30. It rang up at $25 and after the 25% off I got it for $20. That's a $15 swing from what the sticker acually said. I know it must be difficult to keep the tags up to date, but I really wonder what else I'm missing out on that's less than the tagged price.

Couldn't tell ya. I have the 2-movie-at-a-time plan, and I get two "One free movie or game rental" coupons. I get some news ones next week, woohoo. Getting ready to rent Battalion Wars and who knows what else.

if you are planning to sign up for blockbuster's online rental service for the in store game rental forget about it. They are no longer giving in store game rentals to new customers. The coupons will only be valid for movie rentals.

Wow. That's a strange increase. When Best Buy first put them on sale for $20 for like a week, it was only getting $20. It wasn't bad with the 25% bonus ($25 for about a $16 investment).

If you actually get that amount in the store, I'll have to get one or two for pre-order fodder.

Just a few observations from my local Gamerush.

First, the reason that some places are going to receive additional Xbox 360's is because they are cutting off stores with less than 10 preorders. The store I go to only has 3 preorders and they have been told not to take any more.

Second, I saw Radiata Stories used for $34.99. With the 25% off, it's a great deal on a good game.

I tried to preorder some Xbox 360 games with the $29.99 deal, and got shut down. The first employee that helped me started doing it, but then the manager came over and said that it doesn't apply the X360 games. I was pissed, so close!

Anyway, they had a huge sign with the Xbox 360 on it, and the deal, which I think is kind of shitty if they're not doing it with 360 games.

Last night I decided to rent Capcom Classics for XBOX, I'm sure everyone knows that if you don't return an item to BB that you will effectively buy it.


I was going to post this months ago but figured I'd get yelled at for being deceitful. At least now I have company...

Several months ago, I rented Star Trek: Nemesis on DVD. I kept forgetting to bring it back and one day I got a postcard from Blockbuster saying that if I returned it, I'd have to pay the $1.25 restock fee. If I kept it, I owed the cost of the movie minus the rental fee which was...$2.50. You can guess what I ended up doing.

Soon after that, I wondered if that would work for some older, rare games which carried decent trade-in value at EB or Gamestop. I rented Resident Evil 3 - I had just finished RE4 and wanted more RE goodness. I do own RE3 for the PS1 but never played it. I called them and asked how much it would cost to purchase it. They told me it was their only copy and that they'd really like it back, but it would cost 10 bucks. At this point, I figure if I trade it in at EB and get $18.00 store credit I'd break even.

Best part? The purchase value of the game must have been lower than the rental fee, because I never heard from them again. Granted, I don't have the box for the game, but if I'm using it for trade, it won't matter. Score!

FYI, they should give you the case and manual for it if you ask (assuming they have it). I might try that for Jedi Outcast which is apparently good and hard to find? Either way, I believe I stated earlier that some plans like that don't work out. i.e. $42 to buy out Starfox Assault. Riiiight.
