Is Black Ops and Dead Space 2 MSRP at the store? So if it's 60 each, and you get a $40 GC, that ends up being $40 each. And I'm not including tax

Or maybe KZ3 x 2. I *think* TRU lets you double up like that.


It's YMMV. My TRU is super anal about all these deals. I don't remember which sale it was, but I tried to do that once and they wouldn't let me. Sigh.

It's not "essentially $40 each plus tax", it's still $120 plus tax. Then you have to buy something else and you save on that.

That explanation on the extra credit is kinda ridiculous...you still have to lay out a lot of money to save a little bit.

ALL of these games will be that price or less within 6 weeks. They ALWAYS are. Not saying this isn't a deal, it is, but still.

Hmm, something to consider. Not quite B2G1 but not bad for new games. I already have DS2 so I'm limited to KZ3 and Bullet. The rest suck. Like was said do I get them now or wait for a better offer? I can see Bullet dropping sooner, KZ though is a big name and might stick around at full price.

Normally I wouldn't care about more shooters. However I dug out the ol' FnS and have been playing the beta/demo of both games. And in this case it may be better when the game is new than when the community has drifted to other games.

In for de Blob!

Great deal on KZ - thank you OP. Played the beta and demo already so $40 is good enough for me. Damn you TRU.

Thanks Lubis fpr the info, appreciated.

I think we should leave the maths out from now on, everybody has funny ways to do them, so let's not make fun of each other, lol.

It's more complicated if you factoring in TIME. Remember folks, getting on day one itself also accounts for something.

Well TRU will be getting my $240 maybe next go around BB. But by getting these day 1 u can beat them and trade them in for high value. Then repurchase at your price to keep them.

They're both kinda right and wrong. Most of us can figure out the math but plenty also foul it up somehow and then we get another ton of posts asking us to clarify. Gift cards are not instant rebates, they apply to a future purchase. I just try to put everything in terms of 'buy one get something', B2G1 or whatever to account for the whole deal. It's $20 short of B2G1 but not bad for new games with ok titles on the list (meaning not limited to GH or $20 and under).

That's why I said "effectively". I know it's not $80 out of pocket. It's really not that hard. If you take $40 off this purchase, you don't also take $40 off the purchase when you use the gift card to buy something.

It's funny that that dude said "it's really $120 with tax!". No shit sherlock.

I agree - there isn't a better deal out there for KZ3. $45 (after tax approx) is as good as it gets on release day. Yes you have to spend $120 + tax but it's a TRU gift card which is almost as good as cash when you're on this website anyway.

Bulletstorm and KZ3 would be nice to PM at BB and 80$ plus tax (cause they take the GC off the price right?), but I dont need 2 more shooters. Ill have to hold off and keep my 30$GC for something else.

Math is not a strong suit for some. And as soon as you call someone out Conf, they blow up. Lol.

Why would you price match at BB? If anything they deserve less money for not offering better sales or improving stock.

Another thing to note is while it's similar to K-mart's offer this one doesn't require you to sign up for anything.

I read somewhere earlier about someone buying a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, and getting a $40 gift card. Can anyone confirm this?

I'm seeing a few post from people wanting Bulletstorm. Am I the only one that hated the game or is if just for the GoW3 beta?

Go w/ Kmart. They're offering a $20 offer w/ SYWR for KZ3.

I have a 30$ gift card there and if they take the 40$ gift card off the price like they usually do for people who PM then you would just have to spend 80$ and not have to worry about a gift card to spend.

That's great, I'll go tomorrow and hope for the best. I saw the $25 card with the $199.99 4GB console, but nothing about the one with Kinect. Thanks!

No, that ends up being $60 each, and you get a $40 gift card towards a future purchase.

With some of the math around here, it's no wonder TRU loves to put out these kinds of deals. Everyone that plans on getting two $60 for $40 each, don't forget to tally on whatever you spend out of pocket whenever you use that $40 giftcard.
