I tried getting the premium edition yesterday but with no luck. I wanted a second copy for my brother, and we'd both get the maps, but the gaming guy had to be there at the register training the noob.

Gawd dammit ... got all excited when I saw Tiger Woods 13 was $39.99, anxiously ran to check my coupons to see how much would be taken off ... and quickly realized Tiger was offered in August's coupons. :-(

well, what happened to me? sign up on the 29th. They gave me the August magazine (because the other was not out yet). Told me to come back later to pick up the September issue. I did and was able to use the coupon to buy the Prototype2 (they even threw in the steel case). so nice deal!

I received my welcome pack today and I joined in early August. Still waiting for my first @gamer issue, though.

Early/mid July for me, and still waiting for my September issue to get here.

I kinda regret signing up, if the magazines are always going to be this late. The coupons are great and all. But if the magazines aren't going to get here until the 3rd week into the month, the coupons are rendered worthless because all the games will be sold out by then.

I am not sure if they will "always" be late, but the first couple probably will be.

I've never received a "late" issue.

I signed up in the beginning of September 2011 and received my first mag on time in the beginning of the next month and haven't ever had a late issue. I just renewed last week and got a confirmation email the next day, so we'll see if I continue to have good luck with @Gamer.

I guess most of us who signed up from the beginning have renewed. Was it confirmed whether or not renewals get any bonus (not the 250 RZ points) like the welcome packet?

When I signed up they gave me the current issue in store w/o me even having to ask and then next month's issue came promptly on time. Sucks for people who don't get it right away though.

I dont get why i still havent received my issue, i have always received my issue on time until the september issue. CAn you guys check but i found it odd that i went in the "report missing issue" section, and it said that i should have received my October 2012 issue....does that mean they already mailed those? i hope these guys arent screwing with my account..im a bit worried i wont get october either. i just want to see if anyone elses account is showing this..the gamers program is cool but they make you work to receive your stuff..i still havent received my "welcome" pack which im still trying to work out with best buy. I mean you pay for this stuff, u expect no problems, sigh.

I joined 8/10/12 and still haven't gotten my welcome package or sep issue. I can't even access my account on the @gamer site either as I don't know my account number. Have yet to receive my first issue in the mail and the welcome email only shows my rz number. I've even tried rz number as account number and it came back with nothing.

my subscription expired early Sept and I received this mag. I renewed my subscription last week as well but did not get a mag for renewing (would have been the mag I just got in mail as well which has meh coupons).

Does anyone have an idea if my original sub's last mag is this issue or next? Also I'll have to go back to a store and request a free mag of next month's as well

After a no go at the first Best buy on the Premium edition the second best buy went off without a hitch.....

Didnt need a manager overide or anything, unless the bored looking kid at the cashier was a manager, but I doubt it.....

Looked like from what I saw on his screen he treated it as a manufacturer coupon(MFG) and just entered the amount and it was good to go, my reciept looked just like the one the CAGer posted a page ago....

Had to pay tax for the full 60 dollars which around here came to about 5.50 which sucks, but after I trade in my old copy of BF3 for eight bucks this made the Premium edition only 22 bucks before taxes, not bad...

Sucks that I already have return to karkand dlc but oh well, the fact I get four more DLC and the perks of the Premium membership is badass

You can get $18.90 by trading BF3 into Amazon rather than the 8.40 at BBY. BBY's tiv is horrible for BF3 on PS3 because of the @Gamer coupon.

Does amazon have a limit to how many copies of a title they accept person/account?


Yes I believe it is 2 copies of each game per console every 3 months.

Just renewed my GCU subscription while buying Borderlands 2. The clerk was ringing me up, the prompt popped up, and I gave in. But once I got home, I looked at the receipt and I actually got the subscription for $13.99 instead of the normal $14.99. It says there was some $1 cert right under the GCU purchase but I have no idea where that came from. I know it's just a dollar and not that big of a deal, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Finally got my welcome package in the mail for being Unlocked, lol. Signed up in mid-July and actually got my September issue before the welcome package. Weird how that works.

Anyway, none of the coupons interest me unfortunately.

Hopefully next week we see a sale on Lollipop Chainsaw.

Thanks that worked. Looks like my first issue is going to be mailed out Oct 1. Guess no BF3 for me.

Finally got around to checking with them about my missing magazine for Sept. and turns out it was sent back as undeliverable to them with a ripped label. They didn't have anymore to send out, so they extended my subscription to March 2013 (added 3 months). Can't fault them for the sh!tty service the USPS provides and at least they gave me some compensation. Kind of wish they would have done more after receiving the mag back, but I imagine they receive tons back from people who don't change address or have issues.

So far there hasn't been anything from the mag that I'd be interested in unless Prototype 2 or Lollipop Chainsaw drop and I can get them for $10 each. If that happens I'll just buy a mag in store and use the coupons then.

**Edit**
Just thought to myself that it'd be cool if they had a way to send my coupons digitally since they can't resend the mag....

I found a glitch in the system I used this months coupons on two separate games but a few days later I decided I did not want them since I bought them for the sake of it. Here's the kicker I received the full face value for both games . For example if I spent 90 and used a fourty dollar coupon I should only receive 50 dollars if I return the item but in my case I received all 90 dollars in two separate occasions. Only thing I can think off is the cashier didn't realize a coupon was used but I did let her know she refunded me too much.

Still no magazine for me with address change. What's everybody's experience with digital copy? I figure it would be quicker and no worry about the mail.
