Major props to you, SHC--you've been doing a great job in the K-mart thread. It's really refreshing to see K-mart stepping up to the plate. Do you all have any plans to try to compete with Amazon/Gamestop on Super Mario Galaxy 2? Or what about 3D Dot Heroes? The latter is a game that I still haven't pre-ordered and am eager to buy on release... just waiting for someone to offer a deal...
Thanks man! We have sooooo much work to do to improve the instore/online experience, but hey, have to start somewhere.
I'll be offering a $30 coupon for select Mario Games with SMG2. To be honest I really wanted to feature it as a straight up gaming coupon without restricting it to certain titles but couldn't work it out in the end.
To answer your question, yes. My goal is by the end of the summer, to raise buying consideration significantly higher. You will start to see it this month more so than ever before. I'll be launching a May preview on the blog tonight that shows significant change in how we've done things in the past. Red Dead, Split Second, Alan Wake, Prince of Persia, Lost Planet 2, Blur and UFC will all have dedicated offers. Not to mention a Halo Reach promotion that I think (looking forward to CAG feedback) is competitive with Best Buy.
