I fin it funny how their review states how the angry birds game is not even nearly worth it for the price, which goes against what they are trying to get at on the coupon for it lol! I would buy it for no more than $10. They should have just made it an arcade game :P


I'm not gonna try and justify the $40 price tag, but it is nice being able to enjoy the games as a family on the big screen. We have enjoyed the purchase at $40 but I am a CAG so I will be adjusting the price when I get the coupon.

If you want to save a lot of money on Angry Birds, can just buy Boom Blox for the Wii since its basically the same game ;p

Wasn't there a time few sellers was selling them for cheap on eBay after E3? I wasn't interested so I forgot the price, was it more than $15 off?

It was $20 off. It was right after E3 and he had about 200, so everyone speculated he took them from E3. That the one?

But that's spending cash on eBay and spending cash on someone who likely got the mf'ers free from E3 by grabbing handfuls of them. No thanks. :booty:

My magazine arrived today.

I was looking forward to this issue for the coupons alone.

That $10 off used $29.99 will be used for sure.

Might even pick up an additional mag for an extra coupon.

I saw this in the store today and could have sworn it had a shelf tag of $29.99, or $20 with the upcoming coupon.

edit: Nevermind, I was thinking of the Journey Collection.

What do you plan on using that $10 off for? I still have mine from last months coupons... Or were you trying to be sarcastic?

I could easily use the same coupon at GameStop because the turn around time from a person selling a game and it showing up on the shelves is minimal. And yes, while this system has some flaws (qa resting on the consumer for 1), one benefit is that newer titles show up "pre-owned" faster at GS than BB.

All month I watched BB website to see if a Madden 13 or Darksiders or other $29&up was available but nope. I'd just assume rather see a $5 off $20. Best Buy just doesn't have the used inventory yet.

Side note, still didn't receive this months magazine yet.

Quick question, I just recently subscribed to @Gamer so I don't know how it works. Lets say for example Sleeping Dogs has a $15 off coupon for the month, how often does say Sleeping Dogs go on sale during the month it has a coupon?

Or are the games with coupons usually about the same price during that month?

In all honesty I intended to use it to buy WWE'12 with it but the price has dropped to $24.99 now.

Nascar 2011 is $34.99 so might grab that with it.

I really wished I had noticed that coupon was in Septembers issue....I was in the store the other day trading in stuff to get store credit and prices hadnt adjusted yet then.

Dammit.

In my experience most of the games with coupons go on sale at some point, but I don't think anyone knows when they'll be on sale, so it's worth waiting.

Same here. Normally get it the week prior. Hopefully it wasn't because I renewed. I renewed prior to it expiring.

Yep, that's the one. Just wanted to get a general feel of the "discounted" price of PS+. I too won't never give these people the satisfaction.

I never even consider any of the @gamer coupons until a price drop happens. Seems to happen like clockwork.

Thanks for the info on the offer this month, going to get F1 2012 for $40, I like F1 racing and seems like a good price, though I know EA sports game go down in price quickly.

F1 is a Codemasters game, not an EA one.

Not all EA games drop fast. FIFA 12 is still $45, FIFA 13 can be had for $35, but only if you purchase another EA sports title.

F1 is a good game, but for $40? I'll wait until it hit $10.

Hey guys,
I know this is kind of a subjective question, but do you find that the GCU is worth it? I'm debating signing up for it today for the $20 Dishonored credit. But after signing up for GCU that's only a $5 bonus. Are the monthly coupons typically worthwhile? And can the pre-owned coupons be used online?

I work in Manhattan which means my local Best Buys are pretty terrible, unfortunately. Nearly NO preowned stock and only 5 Vita games for sale.

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Far as I know, none of the coupons are usable online. Should all be in-store only. If you're particularly interested in preowned stock and you know your local availability sucks, that is a consideration. But on the other hand, you do the Dishonored deal and you're already up $5. That seems worth it to me, and any other coupons that come along in the next year just add to the party. Trust me, there will be more. In the 6 months I've had it, I've used 2-3 pretty regularly - this month may be the first I don't use any. MAY be. Sleeping Dogs and Dead Island could still happen.

Edit: GCU also gives you a welcome packet with some cool coupons, and a 10% trade-in bonus, which has certainly been worthwhile to me.

Well if you sign up and get $10 extra credit when you buy dishonored, that means you are going to purchase it for $5 effectively.

Given all the games you've seen in this thread:

$10 B:AC
$10 AC:R
$9 GoW3 (used)
Free Tera
Free Mac Games
Free Deadliest Warrior
$7 Crysis 2 (used)
$7 Dead Space 2 (used)
$10 ME3 (possibly CE)
$10 BF3 (possibly free if found 1st run copy)
$20 MW3
$20 Lollipop Chainsaw

And the list goes on and on and on...


I think you see where I'm going here.
