Since this was at the bottom of an email I received this morning and required printing out a coupon it might be a YMMV deal, and is extremely easy to miss since the subject of the email does not mention it at all. I know that technically it isn't a specific video game deal but it might as well be if you are planning on picking up Ni No Kuni plus anything else this week.

Title of the email was: Big savings - TODAY only + free shipping

This is not a unique coupon.

Was already posted on Slickdeals.

Didn't see a code. Do I just need to checkout with a mastercard?

Looks to be universal bar code and not attached to a member number either. No mention of not being able to use it more than once.

I can't imagine how they would track multiple uses if there is a universal bar code (i.e. it's not tied to your Reward Zone account).

Looks like I'll be picking up some MSP and a new Live subscription tonight if I can find the coupon. I never had one e-mailed.

Very nice deal. I was kinda considering getting Ni No Kuni but this may push me over the edge. Havent played anything on my PS3 in a few months other than movies so it may be good to use it again.

do you think it will work if I purchase $100 amazon gift card and it will cost me 50? In the exclusion it doesn't saying anything about gift cards.

People on SDs are suggesting to just buy gift cards. That makes the most sense to me (Amazon being the best option).

Gift cards are almost always excluded even if the coupon doesn't say they are. You may be able to convince a Best Buy employee to do it, but it'll be YMMV for sure.

Use it to buy a 100 dollar best buy gift card and then buy anything you want?

Same here. I checked the email on my phone and on my PC, nothing at the bottom. I wonder if this deal is specific for people who have the Best Buy MasterCard? Can you confirm OP?

I got the email.

There is a small portion of the email that says "PRINT COUPON"

It's easy to miss.

How could the coupon not be legit when it's hosted on bestbuy.com? Just sayin'.

where is it hosted on bestbuy.com?

Also if it is a bestbuy coupon why does it have a UPC instead of a best buy coupon code?
