I Want to say promotional giftcards expire at about the end of the year.

You forgot the part about where if you have a reward card, you get a $20 gift card for Wii Sports Resort if you come in between 10am and 2pm on the 26th. If you buy two games from the list it becomes a 30 dollar giftcard, and three games makes it a 45 dollar giftcard. Otherwise the what OP said holds true for the rest of the week.

Also, if you reserve a copy of Wii Sports Resort beforehard, that nets you a $5 gift card at pickup. This has the potential to become the equivalent of buy two get one free.

I just recently had a promo gift card expire on me. Got a $20 for buying RE5 and was going to save it until i saw some nice sale on a game. While checking out the card i realized it had a expiration date on it that had already came and gone.

so gc $5 (pre-order) + $20 gc (reward card 10 am- 2pm) + $10 gc ( ad) = $35 giftcard if i buy one ?
gc $10 (pre-order) + $40 gc (reward card 10 am- 2pm) + $25 gc ( ad) = $65 giftcard if i buy two ?

I got a $20 giftcard with Ghostbusters and it expires at the end of this month. Their sales have been lackluster so I will probably end up getting a 1600 MS points card.

No, you only get the $20/30 gift card instead of the $10/25 during that time window, so if you reserve and have a reward card, you're getting $25 or $35 in gift cards at most.

Usually at the end of the next month. So if you buy a game in July, the promotional gift card should expire on the last day of August. The same time span was given for the RE5 promotion, as well as the games they released a month ago (i.e., Prototype, RFG, etc.).

So if you preorder Wii Sports Resort, have a rewards card, and come in during that time window, you're paying $49.99 and get $25 in gift cards? That's not bad. Thanks, OP!

The TRU register system does weird things with giftcards. I tried to stack the $10 off $50 coupon with a free $10 giftcard when you buy a game offer and it would not stack.

I think Best Buy pming this will be YMMV. Their policy says they won't PM gift cards, but I remember last time some people managed to get it PMed.

Is this in the ad also?

The system takes the amount of the gift card off the price of the game, then charges the value of the gift card on the receipt. Basically, so no one can return the item for full price and get a free gift card out of the deal.

Punch out with nunchuck?


Target has a Punch Out bundle that includes a nunchuck that I believe goes for $55 dollars as opposed to $50 without. I guess it's on sale for the same price as the game.
