As the title states, buy one $60 get a $10 gift card, buy 2 get a $40. Also, save $20 when you buy Halo 4 and a 13 month Xbox Live Card.

any fine print about when the GC activate or can be used?

Would be interesting to see how it'd work if you bought two copies of Halo 4 and two 13? month Xbox live cards

Usually its the card will activate in 6 hours and it depends on what gift card for the expiration date.

That sale starts on the 9th I believe. Its part of the doorbusters sale which happen every weekend.

Hmm, I'm trying to figure out double dipping the deal is good or not.

Buy Ac3 and Halo 4 for 120 plus tax = around 130

Getting 20 bucks off on a yr sub of Xbox love = 40 bucks

Maybe use the gc of 40 bucks from the promotion of buying two games to offset the cost of Xbox sub. Assuming we can use the GC (I doubt it) on the next transaction.

So about 130 bucks for two games and yr worth of live. That's not too bad but again, we won't be able to use the GC for six hours after the first transaction.

Halo 4 and XBL would have to be purchased on same transaction, so you would be out $170 with a $40 gift card in hand.

If you can wait for next month, I'm sure there will be better XBL card deals.

except that lame sale they had a few weeks ago where the gift card didn't activate for 1 week and expired after 1 month. I hope that wasn't a new precedent for toysrus.

Is that the whole week after the 9th?

Would be nice to get Black Ops 2 with the GC.

Yeah...last year TRU did that promo around the time of MW3. I was able to have the manager PM that by dropping the price of two copies of MW3 down to 40 bucks each.

Does TRU post or make print ads for these deals? I want Best Buy to price match AC3's doorbuster price but when I asked the BBuy customer service guy if they would price match it he said I need an ad.

If it shows that price on dot com that's all you need to show. Best Buy's holiday price match includes dot com competitors.

It was part of their old pm policy for yrs & even though policy changed I've never had problems getting the matches at numerous TRU's. They take the amount from the GC off the titles vs issuing a BB GC which is a better deal to me anyways. Most BB's can be persuaded depending on your savvy though. From responses in previous TRU GC threads people have had success getting the matches.

You always have access to ads just goto the stores website & look at the weekly ad. Bring up the page for the ad on your phone.

The BB's generally verify the sale/price using the in-store pc's although there are some that call too.

As long as two copies of halo qualifies, this is the deal for me. Should work right?

Just checked in with my Best Buy and they most assuredly are not price matching this. They let me know with no uncertainty and rather bored expressions. Definitely with TRU on Tuesday for Halo now.

the gc offer totally depends on which giftcard the cashier gives you. if it is a regular gc, it activates right way. if it is the normal promotional gc, it activates in 6 hours. or the special one saying activate on 11/11/12.

Can anyone see any reason why they wouldnt allow me to buy 2 copies of Halo 4 and get the gift card? My wife and I both want a copy so we can play on different consoles...we hate split screen.
