Well, since today's the last day, I guess I'm going have to bite and pick up Bioshock for approximately $23. Which is fine because my local mall is running a promo this month where if you spend $100 in the mall with your Discover card, you get a $10 gift card and I'm only $16 short of $100.


OT but just fyi Target is selling Bioschock brand new for $ 19.99.. unless you're using GS credit...

I got a call back from the DM about the issue I quoted above and was told he is fine with his employees putting holds on games as long as they are not on the clock when they do so. And since Mike was not on the clock when the game came in as a trade-in there was no issue with the other guy holding it back from the sales floor for him, whatever. Thats not a store that I really ever shop out I was just passing it during work that day, so from now on I know not to stop there.

Well if they are off the clock they are customers and as customers I've had a couple of stores hold games for me. Usually if I tell them I am on my way they will hold the copy; I got one store to hold Madden 09 for me when the PS3 used games coupon was out. One told me they would hold it for the day; I assume they put it back up the next morning.

I think being an employee of the store either on the clock or off the clock I think it gives them an unfair advantage on having game held for them in the first place. How do I know this store might not hold games for regular customers in the first place and since he is an employee he gets a more desired game held for him. It's not really a big deal I am fine with the DM policy, the way i figure is they saved me $38.00 since it seems I will get the most out of the game with a Gamefly rental anyway.

Yeah...true but its one of the perks of working somewhere. My mom works part time at a department store, so she is aware of the sales in advance and she gets a discount on top of any sales or clearance prices. I call it "insider" information......just like CAG. :bouncy:

damn. I don't know why I had high hopes since it was PS2 last week and I think Wii before. Seems weird they would do the $20 extra on the systems, and now give 20% off xbox and PS2. Wouldn't they be losing money? Not that they aren't loaded out the a== on these systems. You would think they would want to hang on to Christmas and these things would probably be flying off the shelves (PS2 at least).

Got Lost oddesy for $22.00 and the clerk forgot to scan the mass effect copy. I would say I am more luckier than people who got Tale of Vesperia & Mercenaries.

Hey guys, I bought some games today but I'm unsure if I got the best deal. Are these games cheaper elsewhere at all? I've been out of the loop.

I got

Blue Dragon - 11.69
Kane & Lynch - 16.24
Condemned 2 - 11.69
The Club - 11.99

Blue Dragon, damn that one I forgot to pick up.

I did end up getting Madden 09, Civ, LO, and SCIV i loved this coupon.

How did the LO come btw they shoved 3 CD on one side and 1 in a sleve on the left. I thought that was really odd.

I was happy I found a GS with the arcade disk too. Someone else mentioned on here to always know what you are paying. Knowledge is power. I bought some other games with it. I checked the discs as always but did not check the receipt. I was wondering how mine was more $$$ when I got home. Stickered as PopCap Arcade @ $20. Called back and the mang is cool with me. Always says to me what coupons do you have now but not in a dick way. Said to bring it in and will fix it. That's my favorite GS wish they would get more newly used releases.

I asked this in another thread, but didn't get a definite answer - does the compilation that came with the Xbox 360 Arcade system include a manual? I've seen a couple without one, and I don't want to buy if they're incomplete.

killer9 is correct (not that he needs my approval but you wanted a definite answer).

I got Too Human for $35. Not the greatest game, but I'm a sucker for the dungeon crawlers. And I'll get some amusement out of it for this price. Thanks to the OP!

You should have gotten Blue Dragon - I enjoyed it a lot. Also, yes, LO came that way originally: discs 1-3 crammed together and disc 4 in a sleeve on the side with the manual ;).

Dude, you should have asked here. It is an excellent RPG. That reminds me, I need to do that DLC dungeon one of these days.

So the next coupon is $20 off a refurbed PS2 or Xbox? Well, it will be nice to take a break from running around to GS stores after the last 3 weeks. The first week I got several Wii games (Okami, Endless Ocean, BW2, Dewey's Adventure) I had wanted at less than half original MSRP, all in near mint condition. Then the following week I stocked up on some PSP stuff (Tales of the World, FF Tactics, and Riviera). And finally I rounded out the 3 week run with Burnout Paradise and Rock Band for the 360. I almost bought Civ Rev but I decided I have way too much to play now and it will be $30 new before I even have a chance to get to it (and hopefully, then, $17.xx after another of these coupons ;)).

Yeah, it took a lot of willpower, but I also waited. I keep finding that games in my backlog have crashed in price while they were sitting unplayed. I bought EDF 2017 new at CompUSA for $20, and I just found a mint copy at BB for $6.99 in cheap trade credit. Now to try and get rid of the new copy...

Ha, that pales in comparison to my unplayed "Limited Edition" of Final Fantasy XII :roll:... Or that sealed Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn I preordered... Or that never-touched Disgaea 2 purchased at full retail... I could go on ;). That is why I held off on all those games I ended up purchasing with these 25% off coupons. It took a bit of work, but I managed to get very good copies of most of them (Rock Band was the worst of course). I just wish I had waited a bit on some of the DS stuff like FF Tactics and TWEWY that I bought at $40 and have yet to play... I didn't use that Nintendo coupon on any DS stuff because I have pretty much been buying what I want when it releases. I do wish, now, though, that I had used it to get FF XII RW. I thought for sure I'd be able to find it at CC but no luck (on the flip side, though, I held off on getting DQ Swords for the Wii from GS and I did manage to find that at CC for $13.56). So if they ever do bring these coupons back I guess I'll jump on that. I probably should have gotten Crisis Core for the PSP also. So at least I have a few things to hunt for if/when these coupons come back around.
