On your receipt it'll show one as $39.99 and the other as $9.99. Just return the $39.99 and keep the $9.99. LOL. This works because it doesn't come up as a bundle or anything, nor does it say combo on the receipt. It just shows it as a regular price (no discounts or anything).

BB/FS should have made it so both games come up as $24.99 instead.

Lol, their loss. And don't worry, this isn't fraud or anything. This worked for the E3 sale. Where you had to buy 3 to get one free. They'd all come up as $39.99, and then you could return the one you didn't want.

I edited my post to add more to it. But I believe so. I'm going to go do it tonight or tomorrow night. I know it worked for the E3 sale. It was basically the same thing. I have multiple orders :lol:

Darn just checked mine (picked up ICO and Jak packs) and the one I'd rather keep is the higher of the two. Oh well, can't complain, still a good deal.

The deal is still online. Order it again in reverse and return the other one. :bouncy:

It's a win/win situation. As long as you don't open it you can return it no matter what. And you have a 99% chance of this working.

I've done it before. It was with Uncharted 2 GOTY and another someother game I had returnted.

Thinking of doing it again this year. With either FS or BB.

Can't remember exactly; I might have gotten the games in two shipments. I know I got $40 back on my credit card. They almost always ask question for the reason of the return.

What's a good reason? I'm actually going through this in my head. If they say it's part of a combo, I'll play dumb and say one game was a PM I did over the phone and I'm returning the other one as I found a better price somewhere else.

Sounds plausible.

And by no questions asked, I meant I you don't get CSRs who investigate it or something.

Just picked mine up and they were both listed as $25 each on the receipt, they must've learned from their mistakes.

At least you can still get one for $25.

i'll show the pics... but no... i went on day one and both games were discounted to $25. Hmm.. then again she didn't know about the sale until it popped up. Maybe now that they're aware of the sale they're doing it wrong... how... backwards.

Please keep the questionable discussions to yourself and don't post about it on the site.

In a sense this is true. But it's also up to the retailers to protect consumers by issuing limits. If anyone is able to clear out a store, there's something wrong with the retailer's.

For example, if DS3s are on sale, there is no reason for someone to buy 20. 5 I can understand. 10 or 20 is unreasonable.


But it's not exactly reasonable to expect the retailers to have to limit clearance sales. These sales happen to get rid of stock, so it's more beneficial to them to have one person take everything, freeing up that shelf space immediately, rather than have the stock trickle out.
