Also, as of today, the figure's hold date has now been pushed back to the 22nd. So no more worries of the figure being sold out before the game is released.


here is the promo gift card

Imagine if TRU did a GC deal with MW2... :bouncy:

they don't need to, but imagine. (because they don't really need to with this either)

Awesome, thanks for the scan.

Any word on the DLC code and how TRU is suppose to handle it?

The gift card deal is only for this specific ad and will expire on the 26th. After the 26th, no gift card.



Does this mean if you pick it up after the 26th you don't get the gift card?
Since you can't pre-order an item after it's been relesaed…

I'm waiting for info this myself. Historically, it's always been early to mid October. Just keep checking CAG, once something is remotely known on the next b2g1 sale, it will be posted here.

I will have $65 in TRU cards after ODST, that would turn it into a b1g2 sort of....

Pre-ordering at TRU doesn't mean you're purchasing the game. You'll only get the gift card if you purchase it before the 26th.

Oh right. I always pay the full price when I pre-order items, that way I don't have to keep track of how much I own who.

So say I go in on 9/20 and pay full price but can't pick it up until a week later on the 9/27? I still get a GC then right?
The only reason I ask is because this would be a second copy I would be picking up for a friend and might not be able to get to a TRU until then.

If one was to return the game a week later to TRU, brand new, would the inquiry about the action figure and gift card? I could just say that the game was a gift but the person already bought it.

Buy everything! QUICK!

They usually factor it into the price on the receipt. Something like this:

$20 GC Promo
$10 Halo figure
$30 Halo ODST
==========
$60

That way if you return the game (in this example) they would give you $30 back for the game so you get charged for the other items.

I'm not an expert by any means, I'm sure someone else could explain better.

Sure you could. But they'll subtract the cost of the of the girt card from the cost of the game. That's how it rang up for Scribblenauts yesterday. I mean, they're not stupid, you know.

No, you can not pay in full on a pre-order in store. All pre-orders are a flat $5.00.

For the gift card, the game has to be purchased between 9/22 - 9/26.

You're spot on but the figure should come up as free and Halo should be charged $40 with the $20 gift card.

Well, I canceled my Amazon order and decided to go with this TRU deal. Have the Giftcard from last times Arkham Asylum deal so this will be a sweet deal.

I was on the fence about ODST, but this seems too good to pass up. I can use the gift card on Modern Warfare 2 :)

I would love to list all these deals one by one but I would rather you guys decide what is a deal for you and what is not.It doesn't loo like there is any to mention other than the fact that there is a Sony TV + PS3 discount of $100, not much considering what they did in the past.Also its worth mentioning that BB is also putting out $10 savings for pre orders of some really nice upcoming games.Same as Amazon though not as good.I wonder if it also gives you RZ extra points.Might look into that as well.

They were, and have been stupid enough the last 3 years during the B2G1 free sale.

maybe they are starting to do it now.

I'm all over this if it is possible to purchase between those dates, then return the gift card and figure for $30. Seems totally worth it.

All I can really say about that is woopty do. I don't even waste my time with Best Buy any more for games. TRU seems to be the only place to go.
