You COULD buy Dead Island and do a return and then buy it back. I've seen a lot of people do it...but you'd need to keep Dead Island in it's plastic to do a return. It's policy on video games.

Also, the deal is only for 360 and PS3 games.

And to answer the question about the gift cards, you DO have to wait 6 hours for the card to activate. But, if you go in early on Sunday...

That's a pretty good deal on Dead Island. Should at least put it in the title or make a separate thread for it.

Lol. TRU matched Amazon's previous (deal's now expired) price match of TRU on X-men: Destiny (TRU had it for $45). The thing is that when PMed, Amazon kept the $10 credit, making it $45 + $10 GC, so $35.

It's cool, now I'm tempted to grab Dead Island

I would not, as they have yet to sort out all the issues with MP and saves yet. Things have got worse on PC (constantly crashes in co-op) and from what I understand PS3 has it the worst with no patches after they revoked a bad 1.1 release. There's at least two dupe bugs unfixed, so any chance of a working economy in the game has been killed. Overall, the game is a Borderlands clone done poorly, but when it works is fun enough. If you're planning to play this alone, I'd wait until BF when this dud is $10.

I don't see any offer for $15 giftcard when I try to pre-order Fifa 12 online? Is this only in store and not a pre-order deal. Fifa 12 is on sale for pre-order at $45, a $15 giftcard on top of that price makes this a no-brainer. But like I said I don't see the giftcard offer online. HELP

With an onslaught of AAA games releasing on starting early October this yr, I would assume TRU will have their annual b2g1free video game promotion little bit early than previous yr.

I would assume the week after this particular week (10/2 -10/6), TRU will probably have their annual b2g1free.

$105 + tax for X-men, dead Island, Driver & COD BO I'm in. TIV for COD BO is $23 + the extra 60%.
Edit:forget driver it's $40 @ BB next week & the -$10 @ gamer coupon makes it $30.

The purpose of the TRU b2g1free promo is to clear inventory spaces of old games to make room for that november rush. But that November rush has turned to October rush. And now its likely a early October rush if you ask me.

And also, TRU tends to hold the games that are releasing during the promo week. So lets say that froze week, you're not gonna see forZa in TRU in the selection

My store always had the games in stock that released during the same week as a B2G1.


Also of note, due to a new register program, place holding of games will be out of the question this year.

Does anyone know if Wii Selects are considered "Super Buys" seeing as they are $19.99? I doubt it but if I could get 2 for $21.98 + tax that would be epic.

Are the $15/$25 gift card deals all week long or just on launch day?

NYC Toys R Us never price match any online offer or competitor's deals (I tried several times), and sometimes they will reject the coupons that were sent from the email. I called their customer service for complaint, but they just said they do not have a price match policy for online or in store purchase even it was their own offers...

Best Buy, and most places, won't price match any sort of buy 1 get 1 50% off sale, typically they won't price match any % off sale, even if it list the price, unless they list what the price is after that.
