With Black Friday around the corner, I guess it's not surprising we've got another lackluster set of Sunday ads.

Both Best Buy and Toys R Us are offering a $10 gift card with Assassin's Creed II. You need to be a Reward Zone Gamer's Club Member to get the deal at Best Buy and the offer is only valid on Tuesday at Toys R Us. Alternatively, Amazon has it cheaper and is throwing in a $10 credit.

Toys R Us is having a buy 1, get 1 $20 off sale on all wii, 360 & PS3 games $39.99 or more. Amazon is having a similar promotion.

Read on for the rest of this week's deals.


I've stripped out all the MSRP items and including my top picks in bold.

Probably going to get Assassin's Creed 2 w/ $10 GC and get $20 off God of War Collection.

Anyone know if you try to exchange one of the games from the B2G1 from October if you can still get the $10 GC?

If not, might just get Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles and get $20 off God of War Collection. Right after I pick up my preorder from Gamestop and get my free Zombie T-Shirt then return it to a different store.

Seriously, I'm downright shocked. Do they not care about competing with Amazon's deal?

So I could do AC2 and New Super Mario Bros. for $110 - $10 GC - $20 off = $80? That seems like a good deal for two new releases that I want badly.

I really thought Toy's R Us would do a giftcard deal with New Super Mario Bros Wii, especially with all the deals they have done this year for other Nintendo releases. It is definitely shocking they aren't doing anything this time, especially with all the hype on the game.

I guess now I can just wait and don't have to buy it on release, so that can be a good thing (I guess :( ) Buy one get one $20 off is a decent deal for a brand new game, but I didn't want to have to buy anything else.

Thanks for posting!

Like everyone else I'm really surprised there's no deal on NSMB Wii. I'll still be getting it on day one, but I don't know if I'll be getting it at Toys R Us now.

No you can not exchange a B2G1 game and get the gift card as well. That is deal stacking and TRU no longer allows it. It can not be mgr overrided either because of the new POS.

Hehe...another B&M joined the fray. I'll wait until Thursday for Amazon to match/beat this deal. If nothing, then will drop by on Friday...

Wow; I'm shocked as well with no New Super Mario Bros Wii deal. Is $37 (net Amazon price) going to be as good as it gets? Well, I guess it beats $50+tax. This game won't go below $35 even used for a long-long time. Super Mario Galaxy holds a $35 used price and retails for $45-$50 still.

That is lame that there's no deal for Mario Wii but thankfully I was going to get AC2 also so now I get both with 20.00 off plus going to use the MW2 10.00 gift card.

There's another $10 gift card with a $75 purchase coupon again in this ad. You'll end up with $20 in gift cards.

With the way TRU is pushing Wii games, I doubt they need any promotions to sell Wii games.

The Wii alone has as much space as the PS3, 360, and PSP combined. They probably have as much DS games on display but since they take up less space, it doesn't seem as big.

Oooh. So essentially AC2 and New Super Mario Bros. for $70 after discount and gift cards? Nice. I'm definitely pulling the trigger on this deal now.

I dont think that is true because my friend did it to get MW2 and he got the gift card as well. But it is probably really YMMV.

I did get Super Mario Galaxy at TRU with free pre-order coin + $25 GC. That deal was slick! That's why I'm shocked TRU did not repeat that with Super Mario Bros Wii.

I probably ignored the Blockbuster deal since I already owned the game.

I'm using MW2 $20 credit toward Super Mario Bros Wii on Amazon.

Yes, you will receive any promos attached to AC2. You will have to do it on Tuesday as that's the only day the gift card is available.

I have the $20 gc from modern warfare 2. I plan on picking up assassin creed 2 and left 4 dead 2. So when I get both games, left 4 dead will be $20 off then I use my gift card which will make the game free?

Cool I might get AC2 and the God of War Collection. That way I can use the $10.00 gift card for $75.00 purchase coupon plus get the $10.00 gift card for AC2 and on top of that get $20.00 knocked off the price of the God of War Collection.

p.s.
I just checked I could get around $11.00 in a gift card from TRU for trading in both my PS2 God of War games. Do you think I could do better than that anywhere else now that the collection is coming out for the PS3?

p.s.s.
Both my God of War and God of War 2 are complete and mint and both are not greatest hits releases.
