I had 3 vouchers to use.

Were you able to use multiple in a row without an issue? Obviously not in the same transaction...

I then asked if I could add a points card on top of the preorder, since I was told that you couldn't use it on points alone. Again, he tried, and it worked. $10 preorder and points card for $5 total.

From there, I asked if that same idea of buying something besides the points card in the same transaction would let it work, and he said it looked like it.

I asked the exact same thing and was told no...

So it really comes down to being nice and trying to find someone who might not be completely against using the vouchers for cards.

I know it probably wasn't intentional, but this line kinda implies I wasn't nice when I went in... Just for the record, I was if anything too nice. I mean hell, I constantly was apologizing for wasting the guy's time trying different methods and asking his manager various things.

Guess I'll go tomorrow and try my luck again...

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Oh sorry, I was referencing the post I made in the main thread, in which I thought my anger came through. When we went in on Sunday and were told no on the points card, I was much more impatient and basically argued with the manager guy as to why they wouldn't do it when other stores around the country would. I meant no disrespect to a fellow CAGer :D

And in regards to using 3, I actually called ahead and asked if I could and they said it was a one voucher per person deal through the entire promotion, which I didn't believe either, so I decided to try my luck with the guy who helped me out in the end, and he had no problems using the 3. They were 3 separate transactions though, yes.

Just have to get lucky with the right associate it seems.

Yeah, I've had guys who clearly recognized me and didn't mind that I was doing it again, and on one occasion had a girl who had never seen me but denied me when I said I had done it once before (and had been told I could do it again). You know how it goes, some store associates get hung up on what they think are the rules and no one ends up knowing the rules in the end.

Ya, I figured as much, just wanted to make sure it was clear. And ya, I had went in after having heard of points no longer working, so I was prepared to not hear the answer I wanted to.

And in regards to using 3, I actually called ahead and asked if I could and they said it was a one voucher per person deal through the entire promotion, which I didn't believe either, so I decided to try my luck with the guy who helped me out in the end, and he had no problems using the 3.

Ya, I'll say, lucky.


Well now that its over, I'm content with my out come. Spent a total of ~$17, got 3 1600msp cards, a pack of AAA batteries, a 2-pack of xbox batteries, and a couple of pre-orders.

I heard it ended tonight (Sunday); I had a midterm, a final, and 2 projects this weekend, so I didn't get to go, but a couple of my friends did and they both got em. So we at least know they were giving them out, just dont know how many more days for (if at all)

Walmart in Apple Valley has a bunch of random games on sale for $10. I only really paid attention to the 360 stuff, but there was some PS3 and Wii stuff to. All in a big display in the center of electronics. A couple of games I saw were UFC Personal Trainer, Your Shape Fitness Evolved, Cartoon Network Punchtime Explosion, The Adventures of Tin Tin, Disney Universe, a few more I can't remember. I wouldn't drive out there just for it (unless you really want one of those titles) but if you are there worth stopping by and taking a quick look. Sorry I can't report for any other system, was on the phone while searching so I'm surprised I can remember as much as I can.

Apple Valley South Target had two of the Black Ops (1 not 2) and controller PS3 bundles for $24 on clearance if anyone is looking for one. Was on the back wall of electronics towards the DVD/Music section.

Are any Minnesota CAGs looking for a Wii U Deluxe? I always preorder extra in case I get burnt and this time they both came through. I will sell it to you for cost which is around 380 after taxes etc (sorry not looking at my receipt). Let me know.

awesome, thanks for the info; i'll have to go pick it up as a v-day gift (but really, a VERY late xmas gift, lol)

EDIT: just so its clear, I call dibs :D

EDIT 2: Also, to anyone looking for PSPGos (due to new GS price), there was one at the 3rd floor MoA location, a beaten up (decent still) and a near perfect one (small, potentially annoying scratch on upper part of screen) at The Hub location, 4 in Apply Valley last I checked, etc

EDIT 3: Gonna double post and just list all the stores that have PSP Gos nearby, since they can't be found via website

EDIT 4: Got the DS, its flame red. If anyone has a pink or purple they wanna trade for it, otherwise my g/f will have to suffer, lol :lol:

Does anyone have a Costco they could recommend?

I bought a launch PS3 60GB through them before they tightened up their return policy. The Blu-Ray drive is starting to make noise and stuttering playback, so I'm worried it's on its way out.

I'm seeing conflicting stories from people online about Costco honoring their previous policy, so I'd like to not waste time and take it to one that won't hassle me.

To be expected, now find some unsold day one editions and you'll have yourself a magnificent gold star!

I've had to laugh at any of the "deals" though as they were grossly overpriced.  If hoarders want to overpay for a bunch of abused discs of movies no one wants, go ahead and let the fools get stuck with them!
