Not a good Diablo deal at all. I'm disappointed.


I was hoping they'd do something, but I'm honestly not surprised. It's Diablo, they don't need to do anything to make it sell. That said, hopefully *someone* runs a sale on it before my pricematch time expires on it.

Microcenter will be selling it for $50 on release. Course, that assumes you're near a MC store.

Your pre-order is good at any store. Just have your receipt.


To clarify, you're preorder can be used at any other store IF they have the item in stock. Only the store you preordered at would be reserving you a copy.

Just making sure but are they selling Skyrim for $40 NEW or USED?
Also is the game worth getting?

It truly is. There's so many ways to play the game as well. I used to play five to seven hours daily. I would say, "I'm only going to do this one quest, and call it a day." I would always find something else to do so. I heard the new Kinect features work well, and there's new DLC coming out for it as well. You should definitely pick it up. It's new at $40.

Here is a question for ya...
so I managed to PM the target deal (buy JD3 and get BEP for free) with BB this week. BB will be selling JD3 for cheap.... can I go back and have them price match it to the new lower price or should I leave it alone considering I got double points for that weekend purchase?

Sweet!

I just got my Gamer's club intro package in the mail today. It includes a buy 2 get one free on new games (worth up to $40). I'll be able to pick up Skyrim, Prototype 2, and the Jak and Daxter HD Collection for a grand total of $80 plus tax....

That is the New price. If you can find 2 other games you want, and you are Gamers Unlocked you can get it used when you factor in your RZ pts, 10% off and the B2G1 it works out to about $26 plus tax. If they don't have the games in the store you can order the from the warehouse online. Of course you take the chance that you could end up without the manual or artwork but in my experience at least that happens a small percentage of the time.

hmm would be nice if they did B2G1 Free NEW games >.<
Never got myself a USED game before so I don't know if I should buy the games USED.

If I bought the CE can I price match to deduct 20 dollars from it?

Probably not. They see it as a two different products. That woudl all be YMMV.

Nice, I was planning on getting the Diablo 3 Collectors Edition there next week, so I guess I'll pick up World of Warcraft battlechest since it's so cheap. As well as the Diablo Collectors Edition guide and use my %50 off a strategy guide coupon, would be cool if it would stack with the %15 off, but I am skeptical that it would be.

If SCII was any indication, don't expect a sale anytime soon on it. I decided to just let this one go and buy it for full retail off Amazon (with a kindle GC I got from trading it games at BB) so I get the no tax and I don't have to drive to BB. I might still need to take a drive somewhere looking for a CE guide though considering the art is actually good.

I kinda wish the PC version of Prototype was on sale too but oh well.

Yeah, I'm not sweating it too much since this is one of those rare games that will actually be worth the retail price. I'm only getting it from BB because that's where most of my credit is right now.

I'm waiting very patiently for Wal-Mart to rollback Prototype 2 so I can get the voucher for a free downloadable copy of Prototype 1. I'm guessing they'll still be around by then judging how many my Wal-Mart has plus they're radnet editions!

Remind me again what Best Buy's policy is with their used games.
If I order titles online for store pick-up are they still subject to the sale, or does that void any sales?

It should be able to get the sale price, but I somewhat remember people having trouble with this in the past.

Thanks for the refresher.

Yes, the B2G1 Coupon stacks with sale prices.

Wow that's a pretty early price drop for Prototype 2, but I'm not going to complain lol. For the battle chest deal I wish you could get the Warcraft 3 battle chest, or the Diablo battle chest instead of just the wow one.

From what I know, as long as you don't open it you can return it. If the price drops by the time it gets there or you want to apply it to a used sale, I think you'll have to return it in store and rebuy it.

Who do people equate sales with performance and/or price drops? The lead-in time for these ads is rather long and that offer was probably in place before the game even came out, so it's not like it's based on sales. I'm too lazy to give examples, but most new releases go on sales for $10-$20 off within the first 4-6 weeks somewhere.

Again, I said most, not all.

If its unopened you can return it for refund. If it is opened you can exchange it for the exact same item ONLY. If no like item is in stock then you can get store credit.

Or just buy the 39.99 copy and return it with your 59.99 reciept it's basically the same as return/rebuy


Let's not abuse the system. We might not see these $20 gift card deals around for such abuse. Anyways, this is Bestbuy. You can PM it!

You can price match without having the physical item.
Just have the receipt to proved that you bought it and then they'll do a return and rering you up on the spot.

You are just making it difficult by rebuying and attempting to return items.
Also being force to keep said items.

Edit: Oh hey my Gamer's Club Unlock thing came in the mail, score!

I'm about to do a replay of Prototype 2 so I can get the [Defeat on Hard] achievement.
I'm only doing the main quests so I'm going to see if I can do the whole main story in one day.
I wonder how long it'll take.
