With the end date of the March coupons being 4/7 the April ones probably will be good starting 4/8

there's a possibility they might start early too. March's coupons were active a couple days early.

Anyone know when the B2G1 welcome coupon for Unlocked expires?

Heading to BB tomorrow for AC and FFX13-2. I wonder if they will have the April Mags tomorrow?


They had the April issue out at the store I went to, I had to ask for a March issue.

Good to know...did you happen to notice if the April Issue in the store has the Kid Icarus cards in it?

I went today and picked up FFXIII-2 and Batman. I noticed that they had a used copy of Homefront (didn't have Friday night when I was checking for FF/Batman) but it was marked $34.99. The new copies were still $19.99 surely they didn't raise it that much because of the April coupon coming?

The April mag is in stores now, but the coupons don't work. They were trying to scan the Resistance coupon, but it wouldn't take off the $20. We'll have to wait until 4/8 to use these coupons.

No April issues available at my stores yet...checked 2 different ones. They had plenty of Jan/Feb and the March issues.

thanks for the info. gonna have to change that then.

You can set your preferences to automatically give you certificates when you reach a certain amount of points or you can bank them until you're ready to use them. Your preferences are probably set to redeem automatically when you reach 250 points.

The pre-owned copies still say $17.99 on the website, so regardless of what the ones in your store are stickered they should ring up the $17.99 when those coupons go active.

It's just that very few BB stores really re-sticker the pre-owned games once they get them in. I've bought games that had dropped to the magic $19.99 price for the March coupon but were still stickered $34.99 or even $44.99.

I hope I get my April copy because I never received my last issue and I wanna use the Resistance 3 and Homefront coupons. I was able to extend my subscription for 1 month though for missing an issue. Worst come to worst I'll just buy a copy in store.

My local store was out of FF XIII-2 but I was finally able to use the $10 off $19.99 coupon today on Legend of Zelda for the 3DS. It is on sale for $24.99 so $12.50 with GCU was too hard to pass up.

Has the April Mag been sent out yet? I signed up last month and haven't received my first one yet in the mail.

No. But most likely that will drop in price gradually just like every other game. That is, unless BB really takes on the GS biz model and keeps super popular titles priced stupid high for pre-owned.

The last month's coupons went active a few days BEFORE the date they said they would be active from. But yeah, they should be active as of the 8th of April.

That was for people who renewed their PUR membership and used the B2G1 coupon to get three MW3 and flip them to BBY during their 50% trade-in bonus. It's dead.

I didn't get the Mag shipped yet, but didn't want to make an additional trip to pre-order Max Payne, which ends before these coupons should be active

Everyone probably knows this, but even if you pick up the game during the same month before you're able to use the coupon, you can bring the receipt in later and have them PM it and credit you the amount of the coupon back - or so said the guy at my BB today. Picked up the last copy of Homefront and planning on getting the $15 back come April 7th/8th.

Enuf, nice job on the Op with heads up on deals w/ coupons. Also the cross-referencing to BB forums. BB should pay you for the customer service you do on their behalf here, not to mention the extra traffic you generate for them.

Though they might be cursing you for all the ppl who are too keen about loss-leader items ($5 new games, etc) LOL.

I joined the Gamer Unlocked program, and I was wondering where I go to get the B2G1 on pre-owned games coupon.
