My TRU had plenty of everything in stock including Dark Souls. I used the sale to buy trade in fodder for BB instead though. Got a manager at BB to match the sale although it took an hour as all the managers argued over it.

My TRU didn't have Dead Island (from what I hear, it's a bit difficult to find now?), but I did get Arkham City, Rage and Gears 3. Not a bad price, $40 a pop for games that haven't been out very long at all, or in the case of Arkham City, literally came out today. Oh yeah, didn't get the action figure either. Didn't ask, didn't care. I also signed up for their rewards membership... I guess I've earned $12 in rewards coupons already. Not that I really shop at TRU very often, but what the hell..

Got Arkham City(with a figure), Forza 4, and NBA 2k12. Was amazed that they had a good selection. Wish they had the Forza Limited Edition though.

Picked up Arkham City [no more figures], Rage, and Just Dance 3 [as a placeholder for Dance Central 2 week].

Was completely oblivious to Just Dance 3 being discounted to $34.99 though, so I'll be heading back to get something else. Also read reviews on Rage and came to the conclusion that it's not for me. Will probably get something else as a placeholder until Uncharted 3.

There aren't that many AAA titles during this sale that a lot of us don't already have.

- Assassin's Creed: Revelations
- Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
- Need For Speed: The Run

For my nephews/nieces:
- uDraw on 360/PS3

Ya know, it would help a lot if everyone commenting on the stock at their stores would mention what city they're talking about.

In fact, now would be a great time to go into your profile and add it there, so it automatically shows up under your avatar!

That's ok, I would rather not help local hoarders out telling them the places to go and find deals when I post here and in the Thrift Store and Pawn Shop threads

Bah... is there ANY trick to getting around shipping?

I'm trying to get 3 DS games

* 1 is listed as good for in store pickup - and a local store has it
* 1 is listed as "shipped only" -- and shipping is $2.99.
* 1 is listed as "in store pickup" - but not listed in any store within 20 miles. However, a local store DOES have it in stock -- it just isn't appearing in the TRU online system.

I've tried calling TRU but they've offered me no help - just stating that they can't do anything if the item isn't appearing on their system.

Anyone have a clever way around this problem?

For those that were looking to get the new Professor Layton at TRU with the B2G1, stores should be receiving them by the end of the week.

Damn don't these stores have $40 games anymore? TrU was a little thin on stock so I checked BB to see if it's worth asking if they'd match. Browsing the racks they want $60 for everything, that's why I hate that store. So here's hoping 'Zon will match, otherwise I'll have to wait for standard price drops. I mean it's no surprise the new releases are full price, but stuff that's a couple months old and already marked down to $40-ish on 'Zon is full price in stores.

depends on what system PS3 has tons of $40 MSRP all their exclusives 2 pks(UC, Resistance, GOW :O, IcO/SOTC, PoP coll, Splinter cell coll, TR Coll), GT5, Socom 4, KZ3 & LBP2. SSFIV AE, Alice & portal 2.

I hope Best Buy gets this next month.

Saints Row The Third
Modern Warfare 3
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

*drools* that'd be pretty sweet. I've got some credit from them I haven't used so it'd be a good opportunity to get a free game.

I picked up Batman, Gears and PES 12, plus the woman told me about the free Batman toy also so it was all good. I did it smart this time since I got burnt last yr with this deal. I told them to ring up PES 12 first since that might be the game I take back for Fifa I don't know. The TRU in Atlanta would not take back the free game last yr so I told them to ring up PES first. Batman was the free game since I know I am not taking that back.

The receipt also says "refund price $39.99"


How can they think that is a good idea? If someone wanted to, they could buy 3 copies of the same game (for example, three $60 games) which should ring up as 120. Then return two of them and you are left with a $60 game that cost you $40. Batman AC for $40 would be a great deal.

Sure it is not free like people were doing at best buy but now you got a 33% discount on one game.

Well the free game doesn't list a refund price. I'm not sure you can return just 2 for a refund, I think you have to return all 3.

Only 3 left for Xbox, none for ps3 at TRU in San Mateo, CA; Hayward on the other hand had plenty of both 360 and ps3 copies. No issues on getting the 1970s figure while using the B2G1, they just looked up the ad and started scanning. I think I got the last figure in Hayward though, unless they have more in the back.

I've noticed that a couple of stores around me still haven't gotten their copies. Heck, I pre-ordered on Amazon a month ago and they just informed me I won't get my copy until October 31st now.

Got Arkham City (PS3) at Best Buy today. For those that asked, yes, the Robin voucher is inside the case. I asked the employee at the register in the video game section about the Batman: Under the Red Hood movie mentioned in the online ad, but he had no idea what I was talking about. :roll:


I forgot about Under the Red Hood until later at night, then realized it was not included. I posted a message on the BB forums to see how to go about getting this. Someone replied saying the code was on a sticker on the celophane, but the only sticker mine had was the Robin DLC sticker. I will call my BB later if the BB forum mods can't help. But based on your reply, I feel I will have issues. The movie is streaming on Netflix, but I feel it's my duty to get the download code since it was advertised. ;)

Is it normal for TRU not to update shipping right away? Ordered like two days ago and nothing as shipped, not even my 2-day shoprunner shipped items..

Huh, that's weird. I'd heard of some people having issues getting it, but that was Monday, and I figured it was a release date/ship date thing (where the release date is Monday, but stores don't have it until Tuesday).

At least it's good to hear most stores should get it while the sale's still on.

With regard to the TRU sale:

People have said that they will/must price match their website (as of a few months ago). Will the price match and still give you the B2G1 or is that double dipping?

So I called my Best Buy to see if I could come in a get a code for the animated movie and they had no idea what I was talking about. They told me to call the 800 #. I did, and it took them a few minutes to figure out what I was talking about, but figured it out and emailed me a code. Just an FYI if anyone does want that and bought it at Best Buy.

Best Buy in Mall of America will pricematch this. Walked out with 2x Batman, and Dead Island.
