#12092566 Best Buy save 10% on a single item Movers Coupon in the Change your address e...

Posted by Enuf on 14 September 2014 - 03:08 AM

You don`t NEED fillers but having them helps to prevent a rep from saying "it excludes bundles" and not even attempting to scan the coupon.

These "lil things" are what seperates the ppl who do/don`t get YMMV deals. Ppl make it too easy for the reps to deny thus they get denied.


#12090467 Is Uncharted remastered needed?

Posted by Enuf on 13 September 2014 - 08:10 AM

I`m not anti-remasters but a Uncharted remaster seems to be a bit much. If they`re going that route just remaster UC 1-3 as collection, then bundle an LE collection w/UC4. Otherwise, they might attempt to follow with UC2:R & 10 months later UC3:R.

So this might be slightly off-topic but can the GCU 20% discount be used in conjunction with price matches from other retailers?
 
Also, what's the best strategy for buying new games? I'm looking at trying to get a few new releases close to their launch date but I obviously don't want to have to pay $60 a pop every time. In other words, how do I work this system?


Firstly, love the pic

GCU 20% and prices matches don`t stack it`s one or the other. Assuming you have GCU games are $48 not $60 and TIV`s generally hold $38-$45 for sometime. If you get in on the $10 pre-order titles $48 + in MBB pts(2 weeks after purchase) you can string them along being able to drop the next $48 title to $38 if there`s 2 weeks in between.

When BB offers $40-$45 you probably are best trading it back in since you may see ads here that the game is on sale @ BB for 39.99($32.99 w/GCU) or below the TIV elsewhere that BB matches. Doing this cycle will pad MBB pts & quickly allow you to further reduce your OOP cost. For games you wanna keep, still do as above but when there`s a b2g1, black Friday, coupon, DOTD at that point stock up using your MBB pts/gc`s. With practice games true cost will be $30 or less but you still played them on day 1. Follow the main BB threads


#12086852 Best Buy $10 Reward Certificates Pre-order Promotion

Posted by Enuf on 12 September 2014 - 03:50 AM

Make multiple bestbuy.com/My Best Buy accounts. Won't work with GCU since that is tied with the My Best Buy account unless you want 2 GCU accounts.

That`s what wives/girlfriends are for put an account in their name, then when there`s promo on GCU whether it be the $60 or the current free w/console one you no longer need to worry about not getting two $10 certs.

Plus that means 6 20% off titles, use one for "just in case" & return/rebuys purchases. Makes no sense to have GCU till like 2020 on 1 account vs 2-3 that last till 2016-2018. Make the extra subs work for you the whole time you`ll end up with more free subs when those run out.

Yes. These are replacing the generic art cases (basically the case with the title printed on it) that were used before. Now you're able to see the art on the disc as well as the condition of the back of the disc. The condition of the disc should always be perfect as all are refurbished.
 
What do you think of the change? Anyone else see these and your thoughts?

You should advertise that the games are in "perfect" condition as that a main "fear" of alot of ppl when gettin used games. Market it as the "perfect game guarantee"

I think its crazy that some of you make so much that you can loose a card.

As of this past January there`s $44 Billion in unused giftcards dating back till 2008. With that free console + GCU for everybody on CAG

#12077716 Best Buy $10 Reward Certificates Pre-order Promotion

Posted by Enuf on 09 September 2014 - 01:22 AM

I am new to the certificates. How long do they last when you issue them? and what restrictions are one them (i.e. can't be combined with any other offer etc...) Thanks

You get the cert in 15-20 days from the purchase date of the game
They last 90 days(the 500 Mybb pts will auto issue a cert depending on your settings/elite or elite plus status)
Even if one is about to expire you can simply buy something using it then return it to restart the 90 days
The main "restiction" is that you must spent at least $0.01 more than the cert amount...so if you have a $10 cert your pre-tax total must be at least $10.01.

Certs are considered "payment" but they effect the total taxable amount nicely in the customers favor so you can buy a $400 PS4 using $400 in certs only needing to add a $2 soda to transaction. The total cost would be the $2 & tax on the $2 thus saving all the tax on the $400 PS4.

I really don't want to fall for some Rozz trollbait. So I'm gonna go to bed. I have to rest up for Enuf's three page response.

Didn`t qualityman`s ideax for getting the limits for GCU changed just go thru like a month ago? Most of those kudos came from where? In terms of gaming on the forums AT LEAST 90% has CAG influence.

You got it wrong it`s not about "me" at all, yes I`ll put in the work/time/effort no prob. But when change comes it benefits everyone here not just enuf. I got over 1,700 kudos mostly from CAG thus I try to make sure I keep them updated. I can`t fairly ask them to take time to support then not put the time in myself. Ain`t that the backbone of a CAG community?

There`s no doubting that GCU as currently constructed has elements of ideas directly from CAG feedback.


#12069976 Dead- Free 2 Year Gamer`s Club Unlocked(GCU) Sub w/Pur of ANY PS4 or XBox One...

Posted by Enuf on 06 September 2014 - 03:57 AM

Why is there a separate thread for this when its in the weekly ad?

The same reason the target $1 pre-order thread had one or any of the other really huge deals that get lost in the weekly ad sections.

At least I`m willing to do the needed legwork for the community so as many ?`s will be answered on page 1 or the OP instead of spread thru out 30 pages in the weekly ad deals. This deal has at least 7 moving parts several with no answers.

If the mods feel the need to delete so be it.

IN-STORE ONLY at this point GCU can only be purchased in-store and this is the 2 Year GCU as that`s the only way it`s sold currently. It`s a system/quality control issue preventing online GCU sign-ups currently but it will happen in the future once they figure it out. No time table though.

The PC WILL NOT automatically add GCU to your console purchase
YOU MUST BRING THE GCU SUBSCRIPTION CARD TO CHECKOUT OR HAVE THE CASHIER ENTER THE GCU SKU 3081375

During this sale, buy ANY PS4 or XB1 and add the GCU sub card/GCU SKU it`ll will ring up free($120 MSRP). You must have a MBB account to link to GCU to.

BB FAQ
http://www.forums.be...ce-view=desktop

Existing members will have their current subs extended by 2 yrs from your CURRENT GCU EXPIRATION DATE NOT the purchase date of the console purchase.

Existing pre-orders both in-store and in-store P/U will require a return/rebuy.
If you want a 2nd GCU sub you need to have a 2nd MBB account linked to this purchase otherwise it will auto-add to the MBB account linked.

You will still get the $10 pre-order bonus with the Destiny PS4 console and GCU again return/rebuy maybe needed depending on what you pre-ordered. Just make sure both(Pre-order/Purchase) requirements are made.

The 10% movers coupons SHOULD(not confirmed) stack I`d suggest adding fillers if you have the "entire purchase" coupon to be safe.

Not sure about the other offers yet as per the BB mod response(people will need to attempt and report back).

If there`s questions I missed post them and I`ll find out an update the OP

This fall is gonna be console overload but plenty of deals to be had.

Posted by Enuf on 05 September 2014 - 02:56 AM

If you`re already in GCU with 2-3 yrs remaining & you`re getting a console the smart move is NOT to entend your current sub instead get a new one. That way you have up to 6 20% discounted games w/o going over the limit, 2 $10 pre-order promos per game(including Destiny)...
There will be other deals to get GCU cheap/free over the next 2-4 yrs just do the add ons then.


#12061010 Best Buy $10 Reward Certificates Pre-order Promotion

Posted by Enuf on 03 September 2014 - 03:46 AM

Points to buy coupons. Will have to think about this but never really liked the idea. Always thought your points should have real value (i.e. able to spend buying real stuff, not offers to buy stuff) and then you just get more deals due to being a member of either Unlocked or the free Gamers Club. That sound better


Middle ground/balance fully understood half of the ppl love the idea half hate but half of say 10 million ppl is still 5 million ppl. And having options/choices is never a bad thing UNLESS they don`t work. 250 pts generally means $250 spent to get $5 so to a person who makes $20/hr that`s over 25% off one paycheck for $5 ouch. But if they spent $100 & had the option to use those 100 pts to buy a coupon taking 5% off a big ticket item like a $2500 TV BB gets that sale. The 5% off may negate tax meaning the same price as AMZ the 250 won`t do that but having the option makes the difference.

The right coupons are pure gold just look at the backlash from the loss of @gamer coupons & forums posts from ppl who didn`t get the welcome coupons. You have the demand already attach a dollar figure to the demand & get it.

As stated above new revenue streams are needed to help BB vs all retailers the hidden fees of the redcard & annual bump of a prime copycat would provide revenue to fund projects like system upgrades, staff & help trend water until the economy comes backs. But there`s cost to get these up an running as advertised too.

I noticed that BB hasn`t posted the #`s of GCU subs where as GS has posted how many paid/free members they have. 2 yrs ago BB did post the RZ member total info so it`s not uncommon I believe. But 10 million $120 subs would be a nice chunk of dough to help fund some game deals.

BB needs to get the competition down & put their foot on their throats easier said than done right.

#12055836 XB1 Ps4 $360 plus more

Posted by Enuf on 01 September 2014 - 04:24 AM

If whatever the trick is will work on the sunset overdrive bundle, I'll probably bite for that price.

$325+ tax on all $400 consoles, $370+ tax on the $450 destiny white PS4 bundle

Same strategy will make GCU only cost $73 vs $120.
