usually it'll be up starting monday morning. that is how they have done it in the past when coupons switch over on sunday, they don't go up until monday morning.

In a way, I actually wouldn't mind that. That would just delay the question of whether people can get it for $10 by combining the coupons vs. whether Best Buy figures it out and squashes it by one day. And on a Monday morning when lots of people are at work, there might be less of a push of everyone trying to get the $10 deal, so maybe it will slide through a little longer.

Or maybe that's all wishful thinking, and stores will be cleaned out of Blur by tomorrow because of the general public thinking they're getting a steal for $40. :lol:

I think for now I'll keep checking back on the RZ site every once in a while, and try to decide if $20 is a good enough deal for me. Don't get me wrong, that's still a great price for such a new game, but for me this game would have to join the queue in my backlog, so it might be smarter to just wait.

Correction $20 steal, that MFR coupon is all over the web.

The Reward Zone website still isn't updated. Might get a price match at Target this morning on a single copy.

Same here with the backlog, debating still. This is a good deal even @ $20..but $10 would just be really kick @ss!. If they do in fact wait till Mon to post RZ coupon (regardless of YMMV stuff), ppl might clean the game out at $40 or $20 for ppl in the know today. Then the RZ stuff wouldn't matter and a lot of dissapointment for some trying to squeeze every penny outta blur.

Yeah was hoping the coupon would be up by now on the BB site. Was gonna pick this up for myself for the 360 and grab a copy for my brother on PS3.

I stashed copies at 2 stores yesterday b/c between copies on an end cap and in the normal spot, there were only 10 copies or so, I figured they would indeed go pretty fast even at $20.

I really don't think the RZ coupon will update today either b/c it seems someone would have to come into the office and upload it (unless it can be done remotely) and I seriously doubt anyone would go into work on Father's Day.

i doubt many people will have success. if target had a coupon then it would work well there.

it looks like they might be getting ready to update the coupons, the old ones seem to have disappeared (at least on my browser)

I can still view the old coupon even after a server cache refresh, so they're still there.

UPDATE: New coupon is up! And yes, it's for $10 off Blur.

Yeah, but I'm talking about the people who don't even know places like CAG and FW and SD even exist. I have a friend who is not on CAG; I tell him about deals I see on here all the time, but it never matters to him. He's not rich or anything, but he's perfectly happy paying $60 for every new game he wants. :roll: I don't get it, but whatever.

Actually....the fact #2 is the "catcher" because the same business that makes the rewards coupon (and rules of usage on it) also purposely puts it on sale to invalidate the coupon. Sheeesh!

It's valid for 2 weeks therefore voiding your lawsuit over $10.

If he wants to spend the money on lawyer and court fees just to lose and need to pay the other parties court fees over a $10 coupon then by all means let him.

Some fool is trying to sell the Blur coupon on eBay. I'm a n00b and can't post links but it's item # 130401422477

FWIW, I found this on the fine print of the $10 off coupon. "Not valid on sale prices and any other promotions except for Gamers Bonus Points."

Not surprising; it happens all the time with manu. coupons.

I don't think we've heard this enough yet today. Could someone else read the fine print for us more? Perhaps we could organize a group reading.

OMG NO WAY! Everyone this guy just provided us with completely unknown information that makes this deal worthless....crap it's too bad we didn't talk about this deal for a few days OR try a similar deal like this in the past so we would have realized this issue earlier. CRAP WE ARE SOOOO STUPID!

I'll just use the manufacturer's coupon to get it for $20. I'm not going to go to all the hassle of trying to get it for $10 since the coupons more then likely don't stack since the game is on sale and best buy rarely let's you get by with a discount on games already on sale when trying to use reward zone coupons.

But kudos to those who do. I care to read how it goes

Me either. I'm seeing a fresh batch of coupons, but Blur isn't one of them.

yes everyone is aware of that, the YMMV stipulation is that many stores don't care about it. The store where I go to school is awesome it takes the rewards coupons regardless of items being on sale or not.

However when I am home, the majority of stores here follow everything to the letter. This is the difference 225 miles can make.
Considering you have been a member of the site about as long as I have I find this lack of knowledge disturbing.

I figured there was something I didn't know to do. But nope, that's still just bringing up the old one. Obviously, some people are getting the new one, so I'm not sure what's up for me.

I'm on west coast.. so waiting to get some confirmation on using manuf and RZ coupon together b4 heading out RIGHT away, since this is a many waaay backlog game for me. I've checked and all my local stores have game in so if RZ coupon doesn't work gonna think some more bout the $20.. even though that's a good deal.. BUT! if it's ringing up for most at $10, I don't care how many backlogs, too good to pass up, will be there at 10am opening, and happy fathers day to me for $10

Cool, hope it works for you. And for those that said they were aware of it, yeah I knew that too. I just highlighted it to emphasize YMMV i.e don't get your hopes too high. :lol:

I'll try it too, i'm not going to hassle them if they don't accept both coupons. I'll just go to a Kmart which is 5 miles away and use the $20 off coupon.
