I got the email... unfortunately it's a store that's an hour away:

Frontier Metro Center
Springfield, VA
(703) 971-5597

Anyone know of stores in the Baltimore area doing this?

The one from the email for me is like 20min away. But I was in one like 5 minutes from me this morning and they where putting up signs for it. WHich it wasn't mentioned as one of the stores in my email. Might wanna try calling or just stopping in and checking to be sure/safe?

Weird email...just one location 20 mile away. I did a store pick up for the 3DS NSM2 so I guess that makes it worth it for me. As long as it works with the coke code I'll be happy.

Try Leaptrade.com, it's pretty good! - tinyurl.com/pf5rqp3

I got one but I'm kind of surprised they know where I'm at. I don't recall updating my info on their site since I moved 2 hrs away but the email points to the store right down the road from my new address...

Just got one for the Millbury, MA store. Maybe it's only select stores, but it's certainly not underperforming stores by any means. This particular store is - from what I remember hearing - one of the biggest in the state.

Huh, I'm surprised the Culver City mall store is participating instead of the one on Venice and Overland. They were the bigger store if I remember right.

edit: So right now we know 2 locations in SoCal: Culver City Mall and West Hollywood Gateway. Would be surprised if City Place in Long Beach isn't involved either.

Since they seem to be doing multiple locations, I'd be curious to know how they determine which location to give in the email. Address on file with Game Informer? Based on which stores you visit most often?

The Culver City Mall is 27 miles from home, yet only 8 miles from where I work.

edit: No idea. One other poster in the thread mentioned that their email told them about a store quite far away, so I don't know if it goes by frequency of visits. Would apply to me though, since West Hollywood Gateway was the store closest to work back when I was based in L.A. Don't want to drive all the way there from the I.E. now though.

No email for me. Anybody know of a store in the Chicagoland area having the sale? From Chicago out to Joliet or Morris would be a worth-it drive for me. I wonder if this will combine with the $10 off coke code.

Hmm, the West Hollywood and Culver City Mall stores both share a building with Best Buy. I wonder?

Another SoCal location per my email:

Downey Center
Downey, CA

Also in a shopping center with a BB, so maybe those are the stores that are getting the targeted B2G1?

I talked to a GameStop employee and he said this deal is more than likely for the gamestops very close or in the same shopping center as a best buy store.

A store close by my town is having the b2g1

Aberdeen,NC store which is actually right beside a bestbuy

Could this mean BBY is actually causing GS to change? More B2G1 is better for everyone. :)

Exactly! The GameStop employee asked me was bestbuy doing a b2g1 free as well and I remembered midnight metal's thread and said yes.

So corporate finally recognizes BB as a threat lol

Sucks there only doing it at gamestops that are in a very close proximity to a best buy.

If GS really feels threatened by BB they need to do a 100% bonus trade-in promo. :)
