If I used a 25 dollar rz certificate when I bought BF3 Premium and I go in to PM this, will I be able to get one since it shows up as 34.99 on my receipt (due to the 25 dollar RZ cert.)

So they're increasing the price of the Madden 13 for Vita by $10?

Only one shown and the online ad doesn't link to both versions, just PS3

:-# Whoops. Says "save $10" with 360/ps3 shown, and says "also available on Wii and Vita". So it could be $10 off the Vita/Wii MSRP, or perhaps no discounts for those two platforms.

Man BF3 premium is very tempting at $40.

You should be able to because on the bottom of the receipt it should show other discount. It doesn't hurt to try especially since it's a $20 difference.

Don't do it. Hopefully I can pm it on wednesday since I picked it up on release (Oct. 2) and that would be the 30th day, but it depends on the phone rep I get.

What are the odds RE6 gets a good price on black friday? Or should I bite at $50? I have credit to waste

How does the price match at Best Buy work? Do I just go to Gamestop's website on my phone and show them the price? Got the game at launch so $49.99 + $20 RZ - $40 TIV = win for me.

I was thinking the same thing.


Anyone know if it goes on sale somewhere else for $40 can I pricematch again or is it a one time only thing?

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

As someone who likes to collect games, the 30% trade in offer never seems like a good deal. Are there any good tips out there on the best way to utilize bonus trade in value? I have used console trade-in bonuses before (traded Wii that could not output 480p for a new model for total of $20, traded 3DS for XL) but never with games.

2 weeks ago I had Best Buy look up the $10 Starcraft and Diablo 3 Toys R Us sale and the manager said they could only price match something in the local store. Strange because a couple days before I priced matched SSX at Gamestop for $20 at the same price and they didn't even check to see if it was $20.

If you do price match at Best Buy, don't ask someone to price check it. Just go to the register and price check it there, with your wallet out. That way when the cashier calls the manager, he will probably say it's OK.

But I already bought the game. And I can't just do a rebuy>return because then I'll lose out on my RZ $20 certificate. Hopefully I have no issues with taking the receipt to customer service and getting them to give me $10 back. Actually, wouldn't Best Buy just do a return>rebuy at the $50 price to do this? Will that cause any issues with my RZ points?

Man don't, trust me, listen to any recent episodes of my two podcasts. If you're a huge RE fan like me, wait for $30 or less.

I did a price match about 2 weeks ago when Amazon had the game for about $48, the receipt said price match up top and I got returned the difference.

Not sure why the OP never includes a link to the ad. I'm more of a visual person myself.

I might get BF3 premium, trade in my old BF3 for $16 and PM at best buy... still a lot of money but it might be worth playing after the halo4/blackops 2 burnout.

u paid $60 for the game, RZ certs are "payment" so they have no effect on pm's. Employees may attempt to deny which is wrong & should be reported to corp. Contact CS while in the store & alert them of the issue using BB's phone.
