Were they a penny there? Because otherwise they just happen to have 20 of a guide that nobody is buying, excess stock does not a penny guide make.

You mean like the Final Fantasy XII LE guide, which I think GS STILL hasn't pennied? Although I think it did go down to $10-15 finally.

Thank you, got one.

I'll edit this post to see if there were any other drops. Currently in the backroom having lunch before I clock in, and noticed another guide drop on the table.

GS 7/24/13
Resident Evil 6 (Regular)

I was asking if anyone has gotten the Resident Evil 6 guide for a penny based on the post above. Because if they are indeed a penny, then I could potentially get a lot of them. I didn't see what the price was though...

Yes, it's a pennied guide. As I mentioned in a previous post, it dropped on 7/24.

Okay, OP is updated. I was ultra lazy with that. The Resident Evil 6 guide appears to be the only reported one that dropped. However, if you find more, I will certainly be interested.

there might have been more that was there earlier. cause guy was not sure if they where still there. guess they needed to clear out back room space and giving away was better than trashing them

Been that price for a long time and was $7.50 when the 50% off guide sale was going on.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Indeed, they are a penny. Good luck finding them though. I have never successfully found t-shirts for a penny.

Saw mixed reports on this, so I'm just asking:

 

Is the 50% off guide sale over at gamestop?

 

Some posts indicated that it ended last week while others seemed to be referring to a coupon that is still valid.

 

Thanks in advance.


Selling on Amazon as Gaming Cheaply

 

Please feel free to PM me if there is a game you want to purchase cheaper than Amazon Warehouse or Gamestop.

Picked up two penny guides @ TRU today.

 

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean

Batman: Arkham City

 

Was happy to find the Batman guide as I missed it when it dropped at GS.

The 50% off sale is over. I tried to pick up a guide in store on 7/31 and it rang up full price minus standard PUR discounts. I think the sale ended on 7/30.

Sorry, been away from the Penny Guides for a while, and apologize if this was mentioned earlier:  Has Best Buy stopped pennying out guides?  Looking at the first post, it looks like they have done on in a while.

It just says Out of System now. Some employees might just give it to you if you happen to find an out of system guide, but they should just reject you and send it back.

Just found a DoA5 at BB and was denied.

The noteworthy part is that they guy ran it through RSS and one store shows 5 in stock near me.

Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

No "y" in Guide.
No "e" in Judgment.

I'm pretty sure Judg(e)ment can be spelled either way.

I'm pretty sure the game's title is spelled one way.
