Terrible ad...500 wii points by mail? UGH! I hope this isn't a standard. Nothing for the god of war collection...at all?


Yeah nothing for GOW Collection, though if you pre-order GOW III you can get a $10 off coupon for the Collection

The big book coupon is for a $10 gift card with a purchase of $75 or more, not on $100 or more. It specifically excludes video game hardware, so hopefully they won't notice or argue that a game is hardware. I think most people consider it software but technically you're buying a physical disc so it could be YMMV. Try it and see.

Also since you're spending more than $50 you can get the 19" Animal Alley Dog or Bear for $5 (It's usually $20) if they still have any. Awesome if you have an easily pleased kid to buy for, or some weird stuffed animal fetish!


Some people got different coupons if their "Big Book" was mailed to them. Since I am a TRU credit card holder my "Big Book" had 3 different coupons on it all 2 $10.00 off $100.00 purchase coupons and a free $10.00 gift card if I spent over $150.00.

You know that it takes 35 days now for points to show up in your account now right? I'd check your account.

When the coupon says Video Game Hardware it is ment only for Game systems Not video games. If it was for video games it would read as video game software or just video games on the coupon.

I have used plenty of coupons at TRU that reads except "Video Game Hardware" solely on video games and never had a problem at the register, it always takes it off, and the cashier never said I couldnt use it and that saying alot because in New York all cashier inspect those coupons as if the coupon is coming out of there pay check :roll:

Okay, but this is what I am asking.

My big book came with a 10 dollar off 100 or more.

So if I buy -

- Assassins Creed II 60 before tax
- Lego Indiana Jones 2 (360) 50 before tax

That totals 110.00 before tax.

Will they consider that a 100 dollar purchase and give me 10 bucks off, before docking Lego Indiana Jones 2 20 bucks due to the Buy 1 get 1 half off promo, which really makes it a 90 dollar purchase?

Or will they do just that. Ring up both games, and since one gets docked 20 bucks, making it a 90 dollar purchase, will they say, "you're 10 dollars under?"

Thanks again.

Amazon is offering Mario Bros for $46.99 with a $10 video game credit. I am going to use my $20 credit from ordering MW2 from them.

The way I look at it:
$10 in credit
+ $3 in basic savings
+ no tax
+ no driving and hassles in crowded stores
= Winner.

So I could exchange 2 of my b2g1 games for ac2 and l4d2. I would get the $10 gift card for ac2 and $20 off l4d2


ummm. no. First you placeholder games and now you want the discounts of people actually buying the games during a different sale as well? You can't have it all scumbag.

I've also had points pending for a $300 monitor I bought almost 45 days ago as well. Seriously, they need to get it working.

Did you just use the term "scumbag" outside the confines of a cheesy cop show. Bravo for that one. From what I can tell, being a CAGer is all about trying to get the best deal within the confines of deals and store rules. Plus there is a tutorial about how to placehold on the sight so I don't think it is frowned upon. My only hope is that you were half joking or just :drool:.

Probably not, because I PM'd TRU on Mario and Luigi on a gift card offer they had and the RZGC was suppose to ship a reversible hat if you purchased the game. The hat again was suppose to ship in 4-6 weeks of launch, which was what the end of September and I still have no hat to keep my head warm :cry:.

The official language for points posting is "approximately 35 days". It takes this long because they have to make sure you don't return your item. I agree, this is annoying, but fair.

Also, the "gamers club points" is confusing... they are no different from regular RZ points. If you're an RZ members and an RZ Gamers Club member and you buy a game, lets say for $60, you'll get 60 regular RZ points. You also get that $60 credited towards the $150 required to earn the Gamers Club bonus, which, when earned, will give you 500 bonus Reward Zone points (these are the Gamers Club bonus points).

If you're not seeing your purchase tally into your Gamers Club bonus point "thermometer", and you have seen the purchase post in your My Points and Purchases section, this is because these two data fields are not populated at the same time. I've noticed that they will show up, but will just take some time.

If you have a question about your account, you can always call 1-888-BESTBUY. They've always been very helpful for me when I have questions.

Ok, I price matched Mario and Luigi (with a Fry's ad) at Best Buy to get the game for $29.99 instead of $34.99, and I DID get the RZGC bonus red beanie hat. So I will be price matching New Super Mario Bros. Wii with the Fry's ad for $39.99, and hopefully also be getting the 500 Wii points. That would beat the Amazon deal by a couple dollars... although tax makes it irrelevant. Of course you do get Reward Zone points for buying the game itself, PLUS the bonus Reward Zone Gamer Club points, which might be enough to push you to your next Gamer Club $10.00 bonus certificate...

;)

I'm pretty sure buying games you don't want on purpose to get one free...
then trading those games a month later and expecting to still get a gc for something Not purchased during the sale...
and expecting to get an additional $20 off is not in the rules of the sale.

B2g1 on games not part of the sale + $10 gc + $20 off??

Greed much?

I'm pretty sure the coupons apply to whatever value is displayed when the order is totaled, so the promo very likely brings you under the $100 requirement for the coupon. In addition, the way that TRU handles GC promotions is that they deduct the price of the GC from your order and then charge you for the GC purchase (i.e. $49.99 for Assassin's Creed 2 + $10 GC = $59.99 on your receipt, but you get a GC worth $10), but since GC purchases don't count towards the coupon requirements, you also come up short there.
