#12178111 Best Buy AD 10/26 - 11/1 [Gamers Club Unlocked for $30 with purchase of...

Posted by MetalSlugger on Yesterday, 09:47 PM

I assume you mean the action of preordering alone to get the deal won't work, right? Not the whole "Preorder in store, then pay off on release day" method that everyone is planning for Sunset Overdrive?

 

Exactly.  Preorder transactions are processed differently and won't cause the promo to trigger a discount on GCU.  Picking up a preorder is basically a normal transaction with a discount of your preorder deposit, so Sunset or Bayonetta 2 will work.

 

Could you include a link to where it is stated the preorders will not work?

Posted by MetalSlugger on Yesterday, 08:17 PM

I didn't see if it was posted but it was confirmed on the BB Unboxed forums that the game has to be $39.99 before GCU, so the discount won't ding current subscribers. They also confirmed that preorders won't work.

I've spent almost a year neener-neenering people about shitting on the old GCU and then missing out on the $30 renewal coupon last winter...now's their chance to shut me up.  $30 for two years of 20% off any and every new retail game, including LEs and sale pricing, is insane.  Even in the extremely unlikely event that BB cancels the program or goes under, you're only out a few bills and a trip to the service counter...you'll lose even more by paying full retail and getting only 1x rewards points instead of 2x (plus an extra 2.5x if you pay with a BB credit card).  The program has more than proven its worth in the past year, and is easily the best rewards program for video game purchases period.  Any CAG worth his/her salt should have GCU, and this is the best deal we have/will get on it.

#12172012 South Park SoT - 360 - 21.99 - Best Buy - other stuff

Posted by MetalSlugger on 20 October 2014 - 02:12 PM

These might be on sale for BF, but knowing how BBY is operating these days, there'll only be 1-2 of each title on hand. Probably easier, and better, to just pick it up now rather than fight the hordes. I got SoT for $19.99. Figured it was good enough.

Yup.  Once you get into sub-$20 territory the potential Black Friday savings are moot.  Yeah you may get it for $5-10 less, but you'll have to go through much more hassle (going instore or F5ing online sales).  My Thanksgiving time with my family is worth MUCH more than that.

 

If you're a South Park fan, Stick of Truth is an absolute must buy at that price.  I haven't laughed harder at a game (or at the show itself, sadly) in a long, long time.

This is the CAG version of "I double dog dare you to eat that bug!".


#12154668 Hyrule Warriors for $60 with $40 in Shop Your Way Rewards.

They canceled my Evil Within order but wouldn't tell me why "for security reasons". Such bullshit.

If you have a Costco membership you're better off buying the eneloop 10 AA + 4 AAA + charger pack for $30.  eneloops are the bomb for gaming, and that's the best deal you can get on them.




#12143842 $5 coupon towards GhostBusters 1 or 2 Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray

Posted by MetalSlugger on 07 October 2014 - 02:36 PM

My local Wal-Mart was all out so I grabbed one with this coupon at Best Buy for $2 more.  Ghostbusters II is SO much funnier than I remember.

#12143802 NewEgg Preorder Discounts - 48 Hours Only

Just dropped in to post my standard "NewEgg is the absolute worst at fulfilling preorders and you're just asking for trouble by using preorder discounts with them" post.

RAW wasn't that good anyway.

True, but seeing The Adam Rose Bunny Connection vs SLATA GATA would've made my night.




#12115114 The new (and mod approved) Sony RLS thread

Posted by MetalSlugger on 23 September 2014 - 10:07 PM

So apparently Microsoft decided to remove the option to order rewards/enter contests for Costco employees on ExpertZone...such bullshit.  Six years of active training down the drain for no goddamn reason.  I just did reverify and make an order, too; hopefully they honor it or I'm getting my CC company involved since they already charged it.

 

On topic, thanks for continuing to kick ExpertZone's ass RLS!  At least Sony is looking out for retail employees.




#12076580 Club Nintendo Deals ~ New Games Up (10/13-11/16)

Poop, nothing for me this month since I own the original carts for everything and the DL-only games look gross.

Anyone that is interested in this coupon should just buy a Pro renewal for 15K points

Edit: & buy it now since it takes a couple of days for the coupon to appear under your offers

That's a great point, added to OP.




#12067191 Amiibo now up for preorder. Nintendo INfinity Skylanders - $12.99 and GCU

Posted by MetalSlugger on 05 September 2014 - 11:48 AM

I can't believe people are excited about this sort of thing. Company develops toys for the sole purpose of SELLING THEM TO YOU. Incorporating them into meaningful gaming is just an afterthought.


That's what every single for-profit company does. What's your point?


#12065172 Amiibo now up for preorder. Nintendo INfinity Skylanders - $12.99 and GCU

My thread on BBU just got official confirmation: GCU limit is three per character since they're different SKUs. Awesome news; will see if I can preorder instore tomorrow.
