So I've got a first-world problem.


I have a B2G1 coupon from renewing PUR, which I'd like to use before it expires at the end of August. But I can't find one store with three games I want. Any workarounds? I'm thinking something along the lines of buying placeholder games at one store, then exchanging them for identical priced games I want at another store.

use the 30% coupon code posted in the target 15$ off thread. with pur its the same as the e3 promo and you wont have to worry abiut canceling a pre order to get the credit back

The employees don't question you using a printout of a picture of a crumpled coupon?

Today I tried to trade two games and get the E3 bonus. The girl said to get the bonus, I needed to pre-order something from a list she printed. So I chose Mortal Kombat X and said $5 down. I was also going to renew my PUR membership and add the remaining credit (~$17) to a trade card to use later because the game I wanted to buy wasn't in stock. She wouldn't let me add the balance to a card--said I needed to buy something now or apply the remainder to the Mortal Kombat X pre-order if I wanted the E3 bonus.


That didn't sound right to me. Anyone with more knowledge of how the system works know if she was correct or just being a bit...overzealous?

For what it's worth, I was still able to double dip over my lunch break today. PM'd Mario Kart to Amazon and got the $15 off. Total was $33.06 after REDcard. Almost 50% off less than two weeks from release is awesome.

I'm usually conservative with these YMMV deals, so I only tried one game. The girl PM'd Rayman Legends with Best Buy first, then she scanned my reservation card. The price dropped to $5.99. She thought she did something wrong, so she repeated the process. After she got the same result, she kind of shrugged and read me the total. I just didn't say anything the whole time and let her work through it.


I imagine it's totally luck of the draw depending on the employee you get, but hopefully my experience is helpful to someone.
