GameStop Ad 01/02-01/08: http://www.gamestop....lfsi_010213.pdf

I know this is usually litepink's thing (props), but I'm not about type out the whole ad when the .pdf is readily available. I wikified the thread if litepink or others would like to add other items of special interest.

Don't mind if I do :) -lp

Anyone know if the price of guides on gamestop.com is the same as in store?

Mainly looking at the XIII-2 CE guide.

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

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Man, no 3DS deals here either... Bought a 3DS XL the week before Christmas, and other than picking up Mario Kart 7 at K-Mart for $30 that week, haven't been able to find any deals on games for it... :cry:

Also, how the hell is the Oblivion GOTY a "new bundle"?

It should be as it says in the ad "while supplies last".

50% off strategy guides are pretty nice. There's still a Gamestop around that has a $5 SoulCalibur guide. I'll get that for $2.50.

Ooh, I dig that 50% off all guides. I'll use that to get the CE guides for Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 as well as the guides for Darksiders II, (possibly) Pokemon B&W 2 (CE), (also possibly) Pokemon B&W 2 Official Pokedex, and (finally) the Kingdoms of Amalur hardcover guide.

It's weird that the RE6 standard guide is now $9.99 regularly when I bought it at that price "on sale" a month or so ago; if I can find the receipt, I'll do a return-and-rebuy to get back ~$5.

Also, this promotion is making it really difficult to use Best Buy's 40% off any strategy guide offer. :bomb:

Thanks was about to go pick up the boredlands 2 limited edition strategy guide tomorrow. I'll definately be waiting. 50% off 34.99 is 17.50 and I'm gonna use my strategy guide coupon from PowerUp Rewards($20 off) and get it for free. These should stack. Or am I wrong?

gonna use that 50% off strategy guides promo to burn up some GS credit i never thought i would spend.

i am looking at dead or alive 5 guide and it "price dropped" to $9.99. is it likely this price will be in effect when the 50% off goes live? is "price drop" permanent or is it their version of "on sale" ?

here is what's on my list and confirmed available in store:
Dead or Alive 5 $9.99
Modern Warfare 3 $4.99
Kingdoms of Amalur $26.99
Skyrim Expanded $26.99

total should be $34.48 after promo discount and i have $40 credit to use :bouncy:

Good luck my fellow Punk fan at getting a deal for it at Gamestop, all the new copies were converted to used last year so it will be a painful wait to see it fall from it's $30 price point. Better keep watch on BB daily deals.

Any CE guide that anyone thinks would be good to snipe with this sale that will go up in value? In Jan. 2011 with this same sale I bought the Borderlands 1 GotY CE guide and the value of it went through the roof. FYI I have most of the recent CE RPG guides (Skyrim, Amalur, FF 13-2.)

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.
