I'm betting most of the stores that didn't have the mags out just assumed to keep the March issues in the back until Sunday since the January issue is still live through this Saturday. I just went to my local BB that had the January issues on display last night with no March issues in sight. I asked the employee if they had them in the back and his initial answer was no. I mentioned that ”since it's March now maybe they're in the back” and asked for him to check.

He went to the back and brought out a single March issue for me. Nabbed ME2 so there's 2 copies left at the SJ store.


If SJ means the Blossom Hill store in San Jose, then I grabbed the 2nd to last copy of ME2 PS3 but I paid $20 to adjust on Sunday coz I didn't know coupons are live now.

No ME2 at one store, but grabbed Bulletstorm, Crysis 2 and 2x Rage for 360. Will try another on the way home

Just got the coupons to work at the Rockaway, NJ location. Got Rage and ME2. There were still quite a few of Rage left, but only 2 ME2 left.

One thing is that The coupons didnt scan right at first (dont know if its always like that, my first time using them). The girl started looking over the coupon and I got nervous about the date. Luckily she was cool before that and we were talking about ME3, so she just hit some button and the discount popped up. So just be nice to the people and it will work.

Now I just got to find a way to get Batman. Might do the sell/buy back which was suggested to me to secure my copy.

Anyone know if you can buy the magazine and use the coupon during the same transaction? I'd love Batman for $15.

you could always buy the magazine first, rip the coupon out and go get the game and use it :P

Picked up Rage and Bulletstorm for $10.58 out the door. Couldn't find ME2. Now to wait for Batman AC. Should I trade my other copy in for $22 at GS?

Now hoping the magazine comes tomorrow, since it still has not arrived. Otherwise I will try to see if they will scan a coupon in store.

Taking a guess that you're from Philly. If so, what Best Buy did you go to and did they have the magazine in store?

San Carlos had plenty of ME2 for both systems. None were platinum hits. Picked up that and Crysis 2 for $7.56.

Got the magazine subscription and rage for $20 after the coupon was applied. I would totally get Batman, me2, and bulletstorm if I already didn't have them all. Great deal, thanks OP!

By the way, this was at the best buy in Chula vista, CA. They had plenty of copies of all of the games for ps3 when I checked.

Thanks to everyone for the heads-up! This website is great!

Went into BestBuy yesterday and purchased an Unlocked membership and tried to trade-in several games but unfortunately, in my city, the BestBuys only accept games previously bought at a BestBuy so they only took my 360 FEAR 3 and I got 12.00 only having to pay 4.22 for the year long membership+subscription.

Went back today to pick up Medal of Honor and tried the coupon for Rage AE (both PS3) and got them both for 10 and some change. There were plenty of Mass Effect 2 and Arkham City in stock for both systems as well. If she obliges, I might send the wife to scoop up ME2 and Bulletstorm (PS3) for me as well since I know the coupons are working

BTW I'm in El Paso, TX

Since the stores around here don't carry used games I'm REAL interested to find out further about this:

"Coupons DO NOT WORK with online ordering but I will make a thread regarding this being added in the future & post the link accordingly."

Was looking forward to picking up a used Gears 3 but that coupon expires after tomorrow. Hopefully I can get to use the used game coupon in the current issue.

Few questions.

Anyone know the chances on buying 2 copies of 3-4 games? I am actually going WITH my friend and hoping to accomplish this..lol.

SKU for Mass Effect 2 still unknown?

Coupons seem confirmed to be working just about everywhere...anyone from Ohio run into any problems?

Picked up Rage and ME2 (both 360, but they had plenty of both). Did not get Bulletstorm. May pick it up Sunday with B:AC.

Will work. Cashier has to scan the coupon each time x the number of games.

Traded in Uncharted 3, Space Marines, Darksiders, Toy Story 3, and AC Brotherhood. Total trade in after promo and GCU came to over $75!

Preordered ME3. Picked up ME2, Bulletstorm, and Rage Anarchy Edition at the Chelsea location in Manhattan.

This is not just my default store, but my favorite one.

If Blaze or David helps you, tell them Teddy sent you. They also have the full game of MLB The Show 12 running downstairs. Awesome time playing against some of the folks over there.

Please forgive my ignorance, I have no idea how this gamer zone or gamer coupon deal works, but could someone PLEASE explain to me how I would obtain Batman: Arkham City for this price? THANK YOU so much.


It will be on sale for $30 next week. There's a $20 off coupon in the best buy @gamer magazine.

Hopefully this question hasn't been answered, but do the coupons work with used games?

Only if the coupon specifies that it is for Used games. So, for most of March's coupons ... no.
