Was at my GS today, and saw the manager in the back getting new signs and stuff, and on the floor was some papers that said "Buy 2 get 4 free". I couldn't read what exactly it was for, so I asked at checkout.

He informed me it was for DVDs, but I'm not sure when it starts, I'm guessing tomorrow though. buy 2 get 4 free sounds pretty sweet to me, even though I never buy DVDs, I may check this out.
Update: Alright, so the above has been going on for quite a while, sorry


I also saw something that said 50% off and it looked like GB/GBC stuff, but I'm not sure.

My gamestop stores have the Buy 2, Get 3 Free promo. The good stuff is gone.

I haven't seen or heard anything on 50% of GBA games though.

Some of the stores in my area have had the B2G4 free promo for a while (they all have a shitty selection). Last week, I saw the 50% off GBA games at one of them. YMMV.

FYI, the B2G4 free should work on both Blu-ray and HDDVD.

My GameStop has ps2, ps3, 360, wii, pc, psp, and ds games, that's it. Did i miss something here?

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Actually, IIRC the sign says GBA, GBC and accessories. Those games are kept in a double-sided glass case. The sign is sitting right on top of the case.

if GBA games are 50% off, that's a pretty big deal. It would be 60% off with edge. This is too good to be true to be nationwide.

The GBA games do sound too good to be true, but we'll see as the time comes I suppose. B1G1 50% off sounds somewhat more likely.

Anyways, too bad most GS here stoped with the dvds a long time ago, and the only one that still has them has been picked over already

Nothing to see here, move along!

I just bought a GBA game, in the box. I'll have to see if I can find my receipt. I'd probably go back and buy The Bee Game since it's still in its box, and a GS exclusive.

Not every store carries DVDs. Generally if it's a very small store, they just don't have room to carry DVDs too.

Look around your store.

I never knew my local GS carrier DVDs until I took my time to look around. There was a rack right next to the 360 section that I never bothered to take a lot at. It was filled with DVDs, but the problem was that they were all shitty.

I've rarely seen any Blu-Ray's / HD-DVD's there. Not aware if they are part of the deal....as the only time I saw them, they were behind the counter.

This has been running for a while in my area.

It does not apply to BluRay or HDDVD unfortunately, at least around here.

It should be 50% off GB/GBC games. They have the signs up at the two stores in my area. This is just a continuation of the markdown on these last-last-last-gen systems. They were at 25% and B1G1 50% off earlier. Or was it B2G1?

Either way, this does not apply to GBA (Gameboy Advance) games.

Yes it does, they are just telling you it doesn't. Have them ring up at least 5 BD/HD and it'll give you 3 of them free.

50% off for those are nice. I wish they had their boxes, but that that dream is far from being possible.

Has the 50% off GB/C games been confirmed happening? Because I was eyeballing a few that I wanted but they all varied in price so much, the B2G1F wouldn't have been a good deal for me. :(

I can confirm at three locations in Connecticut.

Picked up Simpsons seasons 1-5 and The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection for $43.xx. Absolutely stoked to find five seasons of The Simpsons in one store.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Has anyone been able to use the 20% coupon to purchase GB/GBC games, or tried?
