Usually when they do these amongst the two or so weeks these go on there's at least...

...

Possibly three (THREE!) good deals that pop up among these. So I'll be watching.

Thanks as always cheapie. Could you by any chance tell amazon to step their game up and make great deals (not just matching) like they used to ? As bestbuy has gotten better amazon has gotten worse. As for this Disney thing isn't this attempt # 1000 to get rid of epic mickey ? Amazon has had it on sale every week and a half it seems lol

I, too, have been really surprised at how strong BestBuy has been the past month or so...pretty impressive (especially with those D.O.D.'s and the BF/Weekend-after Sales)....

If Amazon doesn't step up their game, I see a major polar shift occurring.

I used to buy from Best Buy all the time...until Amazon began their rise to the top. Everything from their generous bonus credit for pre-orders, to awesome deals kept me away from BB for a long time. Now? It seems like they are slipping towards a downward spiral. Their pre-order bonuses are few and far between. They're no longer leaders in deals, but just lazily play follow-the-leader (sometimes). Their own deals seem to be constant rehashes...I mean, how many times can they have COD: WAW on sale in just one month?

They can still be useful with some things...but as of right now, as far as gaming is concerned, Best Buy is on a path of taking their crown and usurping the throne. IMO...the marketing team of their console video game department needs an overhaul...and by overhaul I mean some pink slips being handed out. This departments appears to require some new and aggressive leadership. Someone like Josh (CAG KMart rep) would be an outstanding step in the right direction for Amazon.

Nothing useful to add, just wanted to point out I think Amazon is too busy losing money on the Kindles, and trying to recoup it through digital downloads, too care about losing some money on disc game sales. Which is what I think happens when companies sell games cheap, they lose money on the sale. If Amazon can get enough people locked into buying from them due to Prime memberships then they no longer have to offer stuff at the lowest prices.

I want S/S at $10, too. If given the option - I prefer to have a physical copy.

Mostly just to sniff the fresh instruction manual inside.

Wait, what?

+1. Definitely. I did pick it up at BB for $29.99, but it should have been on here.

You want prices to stay low? Then deal with it. Amazon has the best customer service overall. It's nice also not going thru 100 prompts before getting to a human.

Should have yes but that would mean A,Avon having to put it on sale without following someone

Agreed. I always get a response within 30 minutes of sending an email.

Pretty fast considering how large of a company Amazon is.

A shift to higher prices, longer shipping, gas prices, and sales tax?

Best Buy didn't do anything special this holiday season and K Mart?
Their rep is trying hard but it's also a store on the out that has most of it's locations in conditions so deplorable that you can't get whatever's on sale.

Amazon is still the best place to go for prices, the old argument used to be "bu bu but we have to be in front of the computer all day for a deal" and now with everyone and their dog having a smart phone that's no longer an issue.

Best Buy needs to lower their prices to cover tax, offer real customer service, and offer free 2 day shipping and then we may see a shift All we have now is people saying Best Buy is good because they fail to see everything connected with those "deals"

K-Mart, you actually brought up K-Mart as a good thing, wow

Now that we've gotten through the bitching and moaning, how about some input for some of us who have kids to buy for?

For example, how are the Phineas and Ferb games for a 5 year old? My son is getting a DS for Christmas and I'm looking for appropriate games for him.
