I didn't get that coupon. If I do though, you best believe I'll be taking out my $250 I put aside and getting a PS3.

Only thing i see is $25 off move bundle, and Steal of The Week: by Gears of War 2 and get Gears of War 1 free

This title is a little confusing...from the links provided, it sounds like they're going to be giving $200 TIV for an old PS3 towards a new one. Not a bad promo, but not unprecedented. Anyway, where does the $100 off in the title come from? Should it either read "$200 off a new PS3 w/ trade" or "$100 PS3 w/ trade in of old ps3" ?


those offers are unrelated to the one stated in the OP.

On a side note, if there is a good trade in going on with this deal, with wonky PSN still down, could I still backup every bit of my PS3 data, safely clear my system and trade it in, then take home and transfer everything to the new system, or do I need to be connected to PSN at some point?


You need to be connected to psn to deactivate any existing accounts on the system, whether thats important to you or not I dont know. Also keep in mind that a system backup to a harddrive will not backup any protected save files, nor will it back up any downloaded games, so keep that in mind as well if you play a lot of downloaded games, which you wont be able to redownload for the time being.

w00t! Got a coupon!

Does Best Buy price match coupons? Because I got plenty of gift cards to get me a free PS3 this way.

I can confirm as well, Coupon is legit $100 off 160 or 320 GB PS3, and I am from Illinois so it isn't just Canada. Also my game library has both Xbox 360 and PS3 games in it, so I'm not sure why they sent it to me haha

New only? I kind of would rather have $100 off a used 160 GB fat model. I want to see what a PS3 can do as/turned into a computer.

Good luck with that. You'll likely have to be returning/rebuying until you find a PS3 with one of the lower firmwares since the Other OS function has been gone since fw 3.21.

Post the coupon online people, I doubt it's unique. As it wouldn't matter if all PUR members used, they would be happy.

I got the coupon as well and I only have xbox 360 as well, though I've purchased a used and new PS3 from gamestop in the past. Both have been sold/traded for some time now. Maybe they went off of those previous purchases... guess I might have to bite on a new PS3... again lol! Maybe I'll keep it this time!

Damn, no coupon. So it's a straight $100 off, no kind of trade in bump for an old console?

I didn't get an e-mail about it, but logging into the PowerUp rewards website shows the "$100 off 160GB or 320GB PS3" coupon under Active Offers. I have 0 games in my library :)

Coupon popped up in my e-mail. I've already got a Wii and a 360, but damn is this tempting.

Nothing for me... but if I did get a coupon, I'd seriously consider getting a slim PS3 and selling my 80GB model for a 60GB model.

I really don't understand this $200 off PS3 deal. All you're getting is the same system. Not like it's an even trade. All you'll be saving is.....few inches of space. You'll be paying $100 + taxes because those systems are $299+.

Maybe if you read the OP you'd know what this topic is about?

Not true. The newer systems have better chips in them, they draw less power and they supposedly throw off less heat. Although I sit fairly close to mine, so the change in the heat it throws out is nominal at best imo.

Yeah, and some of us don't own PS3's yet, so this is a more awesome deal.

But, anybody know if Best Buy price matches coupon? I'm going to have to visit them later in the week, so if anybody can share their experiences, I would appreciate it.

The page linked below and the quoted section I posted most likely answers your question. Then again, it also says they don't price match online only retailers(aka Amazon) and they've done that for me at least twice so far. So YMMV. Best bet is to just go into the store and try for yourself.;)

http://www.bestbuy.c...cat204400050013

How do you handle a price match if the competitor's price includes a rebate or other promotional offer?

The competitor's net purchase price is calculated by deducting instant discounts taken at the register such as instant rebates. Mail-in rebates and other deferred savings are not deducted from the competitor's purchase price.

Darn. I would love to get this coupon, but it isn't in my active offers. My old Fat PS3 is well over 3 years old at this point and I would love to grab a slim so that I can replace it. My fat is still running strong, but who knows when it might go. If anyone gets a coupon they don't plan on using, I would love to take it off your hands.

I just got the coupon now. I am a ny so that disproves it being in canada and I was just talking with one of the guys that work at gamestop saying it's possible to combine it woth the other coupons but dont quote me on that last part.
