I wonder if it would be smart to just go ahead and get the titles I want to buy and then do a return rebuy tomorrow.

Thanks much OP!

If I'm reading this correctly, that means BB will have the 3DS version of Sonic Generations for $20. If that's really the case, I'll be snagging that one since I believe both the 3DS and console versions are completely different games.

It is $30 for the 3DS version. Apparently $50 is MSRP for 360/PS3/ and 3DS

I purchased DC 1 and 2 this week at $24.99 each. Unfortunately, I opened both of them. Although I'm doubtful, does anyone know if BB will do a "sale" adjustment if I bring in my receipt so I can get a third game free? I'd imagine I'm SOL, but assuming its a very very YMMV issue. Any thoughts?



If they won't adjust for you, then rebuy the two games you opened, plus whatever 3rd one you want, then return the 2 with the old receipt.

Guys I'm almost 100% sure that for everyone that already open the games you can just go to CS and mention the sale. I've done it before and all I needed was the receipt. I myself bought KS2 during black friday and will be going back tomorrow to pick up 2 more games. I will be going there anyways to pick up my $23 itunes 3pack ($30).

One question though is the $25 price just this week, meaning sale ends today?

Hmm. I'm in a similar situation as well. I bought Kinect Sports and Season Two in two separate transactions this week. Since the prices will be the same, I dont see any problem with taking in both receipts and asking for my free game.

Someone on SD posted an ad scan showing the $25 prices continuing for tomorrow's sale week.

damn no catherine. GF's sale this wedensday may be my last hope.

Same here. :cry: I find it strange that BBY hasn't had a sale on it so those with the @Gamer coupon could take advantage of it, since they've done so on other games with coupons in the magazine.

Otherwise, at least I can ask my mom to try to PM Sonic Generations from the B2G1 sale if it wasn't the free game (I asked for it with Skyrim and Prof. Layton and the Last Specter as Christmas gifts). Actually, if Last Specter was the free game, then she could conceivably PM both Generations and Skyrim (using TRU's $39.99 sale price the same week) and save an additional $40, since they'd technically still qualify for the B2G1 sale during which they were purchased.

I personally recommend picking up Dance Central 2, Kinect Sports Season 2, and Disneyland Adventures.

Everyone was happy enough when these games were $25 on sale alone and now that they are B2G1 it is a really good deal. Less than $17 a game


that blows :-/

i got dance central 2 when they had buy 2 get 1 free on amazon last month, but they were full price (dc 2, disney adventures, and once upon a monster). then last night i got kinect sports season one and disneyland adventures from new egg for $50, but i used the $20 off from the google offer.

these deals are all over the place.

If you save $20 off Sonic 3DS, it should be $20... right?

I hope...

Damn, does anyone know if Best Buy accepts returns on PS3 consoles that are opened but aren't defective? Cause I did the deal tis week with the free gift card, but had to buy the 60 dollar controller bundle, which I didn't want. I'd like to return that and buy it this week with the Uncharted dual pack and gift card

Jesus the highest price for a 3DS game should be 39.99. Not even Super Mario 3D Land or MK7 is higher than 39.99. I would've purchased Sonic Generations 3DS at 19.99 surely.

Sonic Generations 3DS is 39.99 but I guess they're only discounting it $10. You might be able to argue it down. I'm tempted to pick it up for the PS3.

Just rebuy everything and return them with your old receipt.

That PS3 deal isn't too bad.

I don't have the coupon in front of me, but I wonder if it would work to use one of them with the deal (i.e., make OUAM 30 bucks, then get one of the 25 dollar games and another 25 dollar game as the free one).

Think I'm gonna return the DC2 I bought last week & re-buy it with 2 more. My wife is wanting both DC's, is it worth owning the first if you have the 2nd? I think I'm gonna get the Disney game for the 3rd either way, the GB guys made it look amusing. :)


I only own the first Dance Central, and it's a blast to play. I used to play the hell out of it. Also you can import your songs into Dance Central 2. That's really cool too.

Disneyland Adventures is a fun game as well. I only bought it because it was apart of the B2G1 fiasco, but it's tons of fun. :bouncy:

Would we even be able to price match that? You have to use a 10% off coupon and again still not sure Best Buy price matches GC anymore.

It's stupid that that coupon for the $50 gift card for $500 purchase excludes almost every big ticket item in the store. My mother in law is buying a TV this week but it excludes tvs over $1000. Awesome job, best buy.

Free $50 gift card and free Uncharted Dual Pack with the purchase of the Uncharted 3 Bundle ($300)

This deal looks pretty sweet, but I have $180 in Walmart GC.
Does anyone know if Walmart will match the merchandise AND the $50 GC as well?
