I pre-ordered my copy the other day at Circuit City.

I used my gamer's card to save 10% and then you get a $10 gift card when you pick it up.

fye is giving a bonus $5 off a future purchase coupon when you reserve. Plus you can save ~$5 if you have the Backstage Pass discount.
Thread for that: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=171462

Not the greatest, but buying options in my area are limited.

No. Just Smash Bros, Devil May Cry 4, GTA IV and Lost Odessey. They are the Power Trades and don't require a coupon (although, you do need to mention it at checkout). There will be a sign hanging in the store with the four games listed on it. This has been going on for, at least, a month. I just called them and verified that it's still active.

Thanks, found it on the gamestop site too. But, after checking CagWiki, the games I would trade in are next to worthless (maybe $1 each) so I'd be better off selling the games online to get some cash for Brawl.

I posted this somewhere else.

Relating to the 20% extra trade credit at Gamestop, you get 30% with your Edge card. I traded in Mario Galaxy for $39 and put it towards Brawl. Cost me 11 bucks out of pocket. It was a good deal considering I got Galaxy with the free $25 gift card at Toys R Us.

Ah, apparently you could use that to preorder brawl...nice. I think I'll go for that and maybe do trade in credit. Maybe that'll take the price down to the $30s

I went with CC for my pre-order - certainly the best deal for anyone that is not trading away games.

Anybody know if any of these particular stores will have midnight releases?

I figured Gamestop will, but don't want to go the trade route.

I gotta get the game at midnight, and will just go to Wal-Mart if nothing else is open.

im going to hold my breath for a better deal. but the $36 (or $39 w/ edge card) trade in value for mario galaxy at eb is great

I am pretty sure ToysRUs will offer the best deal again. I think they offered the SMG deals solely to have people wait for the SSBB deal that will inevitably be the same or maybe better than the SMG one (25$ GC w/purchase, or Buy SMG, GOWIIGMFREE)- the main goal of ToysRUs ads is to get people in the store and purchasing only from them.

And the $4 gas/subway beats Ebay? Nope.

I could be wrong, but I doubt TRU will have a deal as good as the one on SMG.
TRU offered the gift card because it was just before the holiday season and they wanted parents to come back and buy all of their gifts from TRU while redeeming their gift cards. Offering such an incentive hurts their bottom line if people do not come back spend as excessively as the marketing guys are hoping.

The goal of every advertisement for every company is to increase sales.

I'm hoping TRU has something good. Either way I'll probably end up using my $25 gift card from Galaxy on it then.

Its just that its been a while since the last B2G1 sales from TRU, and it doesn't hurt to wait for the week or s before launch to see what the ads will hold.

I crossed the border to NH last weekend (no sales tax!) and picked up a Wii at the Salem TRU. The employees were pushing Brawl pre-orders pretty hard claiming they already had taken over 180 and didn't plan on being able to get more than around 200 copies, "if you don't pre-order it you won't get it" blah blah blah. However, they claimed if you put down the $5 for the pre-order, you could get any other in stock Wii game 50% off when you pick up and pay for Brawl (I believe they said it had to be within the week following the release date). Checked quickly online and found no mention of this deal elsewhere so highly YMMV...but it can't hurt to ask.
