This would be a much better deal if they had anything worth a damn in stock. My stores selection outside of gears 3 is terrible.

Does this biased poorly written article have to be posted in every best buy thread? Is that a new rule?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

The prices are the same now that I've checked on what I bought in store.

I wonder what the return policy is on returning the free games?

Why would you even want that? With the cashback sites and the store pickup option, it'll end up cheaper doing the transaction online regardless. And i was able to pickup up from different stores, in case you were wondering.

Did that the first time around and didn't wanna deal with the hassle. Plus they had GTA 4 as 10. What are these cashback sites you speak of?

Target does sell Amazon cards. Pick up Kindle Cards, $25 or 50. Right next to the kindles. I agree that their video game pricing is wack recently.


Sweet, I am there. Thanks for the heads up!

Don't those cost an extra 4-5 bucks to activate, though? My best advice, if you have $200 in Target cards, buy 4 $50 Kindle cards, and call it a day. Money just goes further at Amazon, especially if you're on the no tax/shipping train.


Agreed, those pre-paid credit cards are the biggest scam going today. Combine the 5 bucks with the average couple of dollars that people wind up not spending on those cards and the banks are making an absolute killing off of them. I had to stop buy CVS on Christmas to buy some sour cream and the lady in front of me purchased 10 of those pre paid 50 dollar cards. Thats 50 bucks she just threw out the window. Its convenient being able to spend them anywhere someone wants, unlike gift cards that have to be spent at a particular store, but I just have a really hard time stomaching a 10% fee simply to spend money.

Picked up Rango today. Game is complete and doesn't look like it was played much. Should have some fun with this game with my nephew.

There are quite a few of them now. Last I looked it was over 30 different sites. Just go to cashbackaholic.com to find the best cashback percentage per store. I only have expereince with a few of them including Fatwallet, eBates, Mr.Rebates, and CouponCactus. I tend to stick with those even if a competitor has a slightly higher cashback rate as spreading yourself out among too many cashback sites would be a pain to keep track of. I have never had a problem getting my cash from the sites I use.

Some of them have sign up bonuses going on. I know Mr.Rebates has a 5 dollar sign up bonus, CouponCactus has a 3 dollar sign up bonus and Sunshine has a 2 dollar sign up bonus. Anyways you should start using these sites immediatly, especially if you do a lot of shopping online. It may only be a few percent here and a few percent there but it all adds up fast, especially during some of the 2x cashback promotions. I personally have accumulated over 10k in cashback payments over the last 2-3 years.

I am still mourning the loss of Bing cashback as they easily had the best cashback rates out there. They were on average double what you find on other cashback sites. I will forever miss the 15% ExOfficio and 10% Patagonia cashback rates especially during the 2x cashback promotions. I remember one order in particular that I placed from Ex Officio during the 4th of July weekend a few years back. Bing was having a 2x cashback promotion, which made it 30% cashback, and ExOfficio was having their 4th of July sale, which happened to be one of the best sales I have seen yet from them. I picked up like 1500 dollars worth of clothing for like 200 bucks. Then I turned around and did the same thing at Patagonia as they too were having a 4th of July sale and the 2x Cashback made it 20% cashback. Ah, the Bing cashback memories.

I went in and got in on the B2G2 and also purchased the Gamer Unlocked sub. I didn't get any paperwork at all with my purchase, and it also says I need to activate it online. I can not find where to do this.

Can anyone help me?


Go to www.myrewardzone.com On the right hand side of the page there is an "activate now" section.

Should be a Reward Zone member number on your receipt. You'll need that to activate.

Don't believe the distribution center is open on Sundays. Should start seeing shipments moving yesterday and I'm guessing today.

Ugg I need help.

I decided on 4 more cheapo games.

Pure
Project Gotham Racing 4
UFC 2009
Alone in the Dark (which I remember being horrible when i rented it 4 years ago)

All for $9.44

At $2.36/game I thought there was not much risk but I may never get to them. I should just save my credit for the big games this year but building my backlog has become sort of a hobby in itself.

This is exactly why I resisted this buy 2 get 2 deal. It sounds great but theres nothing I'm really wanting to pay current prices for much less 4 titles I'm ready to add to the backlog. I'd be buying them just to shelve them behind the other games I haven't had time to play.

I just talked to a CSR about my backordered items. She told me that this isn't like Black Friday where they will outright cancel an item after 30 days. She said that if my items become unavailable for some reason then I will get an email with the option to replace my items for comparable items and the B2G2 will still be in effect.

The CSR I talked to also told me that the coming soon items will be available as soon as someone trades them in or as soon as they get them in bulk at the outlet center. The former will be YMMV in-store pick up and the latter will be shipped directly to your address.

Hit or miss. Some people get their games relatively fast but sometime is can take forever (1-2 weeks). Not the best service but free is free I guess. I don't fret about it since I usually order stuff that I do not need right away.

Mine did too, sans the one backordered copy of Izuna. I swear if they cancel it, I'll be pretty pissed.
