Went by Best Buy and saw it. Found it right next to the Hulu gift cards, which are near the PS Vita/PS3 section. Your store may not have these but it's worth a look. Caught me by surprise.
Be sure to look carefully because they are easily missed. Unfortunately, it was OOS when I found it.

The date shows the tag was printed on Oct 10th, meaning it was recent.
If you are a Best Buy employee or have any contact, feel free to share info on this (& please don't take all of them either, share the love).

(If someone already posted this deal, my apologies and call me any name in the book, just not Bob.)

What is a Season pass? o:


DLC at a discounted price, in this case at BB, it is free.

It's a one time subscription (usually) that includes future planned DLC for a game. For example, Battlefield 3 has a premium subscription. If you were to buy it for $50, you would save money, instead of buying the 5 map packs for $15 each.

I don't see how that can be possible. If it's a card, it'd have to be activated. I don't think they'd activate something for free

They may if it says "FREE!" It's definitely worth a look, if anyone else will be near a BB today. If one more person confirms seeing it at a different store, I'll make the trip.

Exactly what I thought. I hope other CAG's can confirm or add more info on this. It's definitely worth a look.

If you look on their site, it's a pre-order bonus. EDIT: Actually I think it's just the extra DLC.. my bad

I checked on that. That pre-order bonus is given via email and it's for specific DLC. What I posted was a Season Pass Card.

DLC...Download code will arrive via e-mail on or around release date.

According to the Best Buy website, the season pass is just a 2400 points card, and the season pass will cost 2400 points when it releases. (similar to the Halo 4 map pass from walmart).

I doubt they mean to give away 2400 points cards for free, even with purchase. They probably caught the glitch and pulled them from the shelf, which is why its empty.

Although, I'll be sure to keep my eyes peeled next time I'm in the store. 8-)

a couple years back i saw something similar at bb, where they had download cards for spore origins via scratch off itunes code and the price card said free exactly like this. people were able to just grab cards off the rack and take them to the cashier where they rung up as free. so this is most likely legit!

Went to my BB yesterday and saw exactly this. Took the card up to the register and the guy gave some explanation, but other than that it comes out to a price when they ring it up.

I just stopped by my local Best Buy. They had the actual cards there. The 360 ones had $29.99 2400 points printed on them. The PS3 ones do not. Brought one of each up to the register, and asked if they'd check the price for me. Both rang up at $29.99. I'd go with it's just a misprint on that label.

A few states might honor the pricing even if it is a mistake.. My state does not have "pricing error" consumer protection laws (although a few retailers around me do honor mistaked prices at their discretion, can say from experience.). A few I can name off my head that do legally is New Mexico, Massachussetts and I believe Michigan.

By law they have to sell it to you at that price. Period. You were too nice.


:-s By what law exactly?

People make up imaginary consumer laws and throw out bait and switch and bla bla bla.

Some states may have consumer friendly laws stating if an item is marked a certain price they are obligated to sell it to you at that price. But other than filing a complaint that will go nowhere, there is nothing the law can do for you. Stores also have leeway for misprints. But I'm sure someone is going to sit there and argue for an hour about how they need to honor the free price for the season pass and then call corporate and complain.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

They might honor pricing errors if its within reason. They aren't going to give away $30 worth of microsoft points because some guy put the wrong sticker up.

Actually check bb yesterday and it rang up for $30 though for some strange reason the associate had to call the manager over. So definitely ymmv.
