pretty nice price on CoD but i already played the MP Free during the steam event and can't really justify spending more than $15 on something that hasnt changed much

AC:R was $20 at Best Buy a few days ago...


I was going to say that. I thought it was the same price at Gamestop. I could be wrong though.

When doing a price-match on a previously purchased item, is the receipt all that is required or should I bring the packaging as well?

That is it. You are good to go. Even if the game is opened you can PM.

Backlog? What backlog?

GOW 3 for $24.99. Probably pick up one... but the thing is... with all this price dropping for GOW3... does it mean the complete edition (game+dlcs) will be coming out soon?

Yeah thats what I'm thinking. Or even a edition with all 3 games and all DLC on it. I really want to play it though. Not sure if I'll bite or not...

Those prices are in the weekly flyer if you get them early on Thursday like me with the other ads in a bag at the house.

Thanks, and those deals usually are in-store exclusive or online too?

Battlefield 3 is showing the reduced price for me here: http://www.toysrus.c...ductId=12310222

Gift Card deals usually in-store only. Reduced price deals should apply both store and online, but individual store always has the privilege to reject any honor, even their circular or online price.

Something they're doing (this week even, and I believe next) as a test is basically not signing ads at all unless the item in it is advertised as "unbeatable price" and such, so it could be referring to that; they expect if you want the deal, you should bring in the ad and show it to them in order to get it.

Honestly, it doesn't make much sense to me at all.


Once I went to the store by using one of coupons from their email, and they refused to accept too. Sometimes, I have difficult time to use their reward coupons, especially applying to the items with GC offers. So it's really up to the store.

Excellent news on ME3! As an fyi, Premier Silver members should have until April 20th to price match in-store. Unfortunately, non-silver members are outside the price match period.

Edit: I should clarify, those dates are for those who picked it up on launch day.


Wait....so I'm a Premier Silver member....I can actually go and PM from the $60 I paid for it? That is too awesome. Especially since I got the $20 GC too.

So if I preorder DarkSiders now, can I just walk into the store next week and get the 10 bucks back? Cause I went to my BB after my doctor's appointment just to see if they had it. Had the guy at the games counter say they only had it used, so I showed him the online stuff, he said "No it isn't on the website", showed him the website, explained that I know how to read, and he looked up the inventory in the system and they didn't have shit.
I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious... but I am so it comes out that way.

I never did get an email with an actual availability date and my last backorder email was dated March 31st. Haven't heard anything more since that date.

yeah, that's right keep the $20 GC & get the cash back off the $60. Best of both worlds day 1 game reduced day 30+ sale price can't lose.

it's how they maximize profits...They focus on getting people to pay full MSRP on new items & soften the blow by hoping they're trading in games so the "real" money doesn't feel as bad. By staying on top of TIV(as well as possible) they ensure huge profits on used games thus never "losing". If they started pm'ing then they'd lose money on new titles even with trades.
