In for GOW3! That $20 gift card looks tempting. :D

I have God of War III pre-ordered with Amazon for $56.99 w/$10 VG credit ($46.99 after credit). This would be $44.10 after counting the GC. I am Prime so I get free release day shipping from AMZ so getting it day 1 is not a factor. Plus I just now beat GOW1 so I won't be playing it right away.

Maybe after the BF:BC2 error I took advantage of I owe it to TRU to buy GOW3 there.

Or to PM at BB and get reward zone points. I wonder if PMing would stack with their bonus reward zone points. I also pre-ordered it from BB to get the God Of War Collection $10 off but was not going to buy it there since it was full MSRP plus tax. I tried to return the GOW3 pre-order but since it was a package deal it would not let me return just the pre-order. It was still only $25 for the collection so I was just going to eat the $5 for the pre-order. So now, PM at BB to get $20 GC, my $5 pre-order credit, PLUS the bonus points (500 regular = $10). Sounds like $29.10 after tax by my calculation. Not to mention the reward zone points I will accrue.

Sounds like I will be at BB early on the 16th.

Wow, not bad at all. DS Lite finally died on me, so this must be someone telling me to go out and get another in time for HG/SS.

PMing does stack with their bonus reward zone points. I did it last week pming dante's inferno from target for $40 and I was awarded 150 bonus points as well.

The games, I believe are $39.99. And I might finally have to pick up a new DS Lite. Hmm, this is so tempting but I don't know if I can not use my GS credit.

What I'm concerned about with the power bundle of the Pokemon games is that they might be in very, VERY, limited stock. I'm a bit paranoid about this after I never got that ODST figure. -_-'

Well time to call in a favor and a have buddy pick it up. Why do they make the hours at those times?

Tempting on GoW III, but I have $20 credit from BF:BC2 to use. Plus you get a skin (albeit an unappealing one) and another $10 credit from Amazon. And I assume the GC with GoW III would expire anyway.

I may not even buy GoW III since I have so many other games I want to finish first and I'm not crazy about the franchise.

I have both HeartGold and SoulSilver reserved through TRU.

Does that mean I get two basic sets and two 5 dollar GC's?

Should I purchase them on seperate transactions so I can get two, or do you think they will allow for two?

The flier itself doesn't specifically state a limit of one per person, so it will probably depend upon the store manager/clerk.

The picture in the flier is tiny, but it looks like a couple styli and a game carrying case (or something that looks like one).

If it's 1 per customer, could you get around it by picking them up separately?

What exactly does it mean Basic Sets. I do have Pokemon reserved at Best Buy since figured might as well get the bonus points, but what does this basic set consist of?

Though the t-shirt and a gift card isn't too shabby, hell I know someone who would love the t-shirt especially if it's a Pokemon one (which I have to assume it is)

Ok when they say Buy 1 DS game get 1 $10 off -- I'm reading that as you need to buy a second game. Could you clarify OP?

I'm still gonna get GOW 3 from Amazon. I just don't feel like making a rush to leave work, drive halfway across town and most likely arrive to find my local TRU out of stock (like I have so many times in the past). The extra effort for an additional 10 bucks on a gift card really isn't worth it. Plus I won't receive that Amazon exclusive Kratos skin.

Battle of Giants: Mutant Insects Ds

That would be awesome! But, I don't see that happening unless Wal-Mart gives a $20 gift card since usually they mimic one another.

Every Pokemon release my wife and I have a "release party" with my nieces and nephews where we grab the game at Wal-Mart at midnight. TRU may change things up this year.

Doubtful that Amazon would match a $20 deal that only lasts one day from 10AM - 2PM for club members. They didn't match the other past promotions of this type so I'm not going to hold my breath.

Thanks to the original poster. I am going to use the $60 gift card for GOW3.

Thanks OP! Saw the GoWIII $20gc promo from SD last night and that's exactly what i need :) Got the $40 GC from last round (2xBS2 and 2xDI, $10+$10+$20+$0) PLUS $10 off $50 coupon in the mail, it's like getting GoWIII for $10 + tax and getting a $20GC back (and on day one, woohoo). Oh yeah, i can sell the Amazon's UE + the exclusive Skin with it, probably gonna fetch some handsome change :lol:

Can't wait to Plat GoWIII... gonna put everything else on hold :lol:
