Update: Now available online. Use coupon code B2G1FREE

I just got word from my manager that there should be a B2G1 sale starting tonight at 7 p.m. on used games and accessories again. I'm sure it'll go until closing on Sunday at 6 p.m. I can't say that I have 100% confidence in this since I haven't seen an official email myself, but my manager has been 100% accurate so far when he tells me these things.

If you're anything like me, this means you have from now until then to study your excel spreadsheets of the games you want, check the online store locator, and make a plan of attack! :bouncy:

If anyone else has heard anything else about this, please feel free to confirm.

EDIT1: Most employees won't know anything about this because GameStop doesn't update their systems to reflect the B2G1 promotion until Friday morning. The reason it says "7 p.m." is so that stores can set up for it by opening on Friday. If you don't want hassle or drama, you may be better off to wait until Friday morning to go out.

EDIT2: It looks like the computers somehow recognized the sale after 7 p.m., and sales rang up without issues or manual entries. Before 7 p.m. was YMMV per store. GameStop.com doesn't seem to be working for B2G1 quite yet, but it should be fairly soon. Maybe by midnight?

Also, for those who are new, the B2G1 promotion does not stack with any other promotions except EDGE cards. No 20% off coupons, no 25% off XBOX games. Obviously, the cheapest of the three items will be free. The computer will automatically give you the best deal. Yes, you may combine used products, such as a used accessory AND Wii game AND 360 game.

Finally, I urge you not to rely too heavily on calling your local GameStop. As someone mentioned earlier, no extra hours were given to staff the sale, so associates will be VERY busy over the weekend, and customers in the store will get first priority. Your phone service mileage may vary is all I'm saying.

B2G1 got a bit more appealing since the 10% eternal is gone.

Oh man b2g1 again? Damn you gamestop.

Seems like they raised the price on some used games and dropped the price on others.

Great, I'm on vacation and craving for something new to play. Probably will get L4D Assassins Creed and something else I find.

Damn, I hate these sales. I always go through the dilemma of deciding between getting three cheap games to avoid spending a lot of money or getting three expensive games to save more on that third game.

I just bought a Wii, so I might take this opportunity to pick up some of the still-expensive first party titles like Zelda or Smash Bros. Damn you, Gamestop!

Last B2G1 was horrible for me... The games I wanted didn't have the real cases...
Hopefully this one will be much better. Thanks OP.

Excellent. Thanks Op. These frequent B2G1 lately are making up for their lack of useful coupons.

Perfect timing for me...I've been wanting to grab a copy of RB2 for a while now, but I didn't feel like paying $35 for it. Now I can grab RB2 and...uhhh, yea, I don't know what else to get with it. :P

Sweet timing. I'm new to the 360 world and plan on getting a few cheap games. Maybe Crackdown, Condemned, and possibly the second Condemned. Thanks OP.
