Just picked up ME3 for $10, and here I was thinking this was gonna be a dead month for me. I had intended to wait for the ME Trilogy, but since the 360 edition won't have all the DLC (and I already have the other two), figured this was a better deal.

Still on the fence about Lollipop...dunno if I can justify it w/ the size of my backlog.

Tried my local store to see if I could use one of their September issues for the ME3 coupon since I signed up in August and haven't received a mag yet. They only had the CoD mag though. Will try another store.

I noticed that the in-store sign for GCU says "never miss an issue" ^^;

Thanks for the heads up OP. My store had plenty of the mags and was able to snag a copy of ME3 CE for PS3 for $10 after the coupon. Stellar deal!

I ended up picking up Lollipop Chainsaw today. I wanted it when it came out, but $20 was my sweet spot. Hopefully it's worth it.

I just tried to use a gift card I received from BB after trading in a bunch of games over a month ago. The card had over 80$ on it and had never been used but it registered as an invalid card. So after talking to numerous CSReps I was told that my card had been used to buy an IPhone, 4 hours after I traded in the games. I explained that that was impossible for numerous reasons such as I don't have an Iphone, but the CSR didn't seem to believe me and said there was nothing he could do. I asked if they could see who bought the cell phone or any info surrounding its purchase but they refused to give it to me. So it looks like I've been ripped off, probably by a BB employee and there is nothing I can do about it. I hope this info can help someone, I feel like someone punched me in the stomach.

I will post this on all BB threads just to give people a heads up


If the gift card you had came up as invalid card the card handed to you may have never been activated. Who ever processed the transaction may have not given you the correct gift card. If you still have the gift card and the digits off the back of it, you can get the entire gift card's history from an employee in store. If they won't give you the cell phone info (which would be a privacy liability) then they should be able to give you the history of your gift card. That way you can see if it even was activated at all.

Was able to pickup a ME3 Collectors edition for $10! Thanks OP. Also if there are any CAGs in Lakeland, FL they had 3 more of them on display. Hate the stickers on the side..... (Goo gone is a blessing).

Ok so I just received a email telling me congratulations I'm am now a silver rewards member. The thing is I'm still about $1k away from the $2500 and I haven't purchased a cell phone from them. Anyone know why I was upgraded? Looking on the rewards site, it says I'm a silver member though 2014.

I have also been mysteriously upgraded to premier silver good through February 2013.

This does not bode well for BB allowing me a longer PM duration.

I think I got it for a year due to all of my trade-ins. I'm still trying to figure out how I made RZ Silver. Not that I'm complaining, since 60 days for returns/PM's is nice.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

They did the same thing to us in waves last year as well. That's when I got mysteriously upgraded to Silver and I was nowhere near the $2500 because I used trade-in gift cards for all my purchases. It seems that they do this to introduce the Silver program to us active folks who don't actually spend enough cash to qualify for the program. See if they can get us to spend more I guess? It's a great perk regardless...

If you hit $2,000 for 2 consecutive years you also get silver.

I got my copy of ME3 for a nice zero out of pocket. The kid scanned the game and coupon and was like wow and just stared at the screen for a second as if considering the deal himself. I'm glad I held out this long. It was hard.

I don't do any trade-ins at bby, so I don't think that's it. I do use gift cards for almost every purchase though. I buy bby gift cards at my grocery store and earn 2-4x fuel points with them. Win win for me

people always bitch and complain because they arent patient. bb always pull through and you know what even if @gamer, brought out six months straight worth of crap coupons, i think we can all say we got some pretty damn good deals off the unlocked program and the magazines. WAAAAAY better then the power up rewards program, hence the reason why gamestop is getting aggressive with select stores offering bigger bonuses, and recently gamestops 100 percent hardware bonus trade in.


THIS.

I think some people are bitching and complaining because they've been spoiled by the good run of deals in the past year + or so, and so if it isn't an instant "FREE GAMEZ" the first day of the sale they're disappointed.

As with many things, patience pays off. This isn't the first time there's been a sale or permanent price drop while the coupons are active, and it likely won't be the last.

Oh, and I almost forgot... THANKS OP! :bouncy:

Should've gotten a GCU while the $20 with preorder for Borderlands 2 was still up, but nonetheless, I got one today. Picked up ME3 and Lollipop which both cost a little less than $50 together with the GCU subscription. Still debating on whether to bite on the BF3 or Prototype offers.

As others have pointed out, I was able to get that CoD magazine free after I noticed they charged me for it and asked about it. Turns out that wasn't the regular October edition after all, lol.

I haven't been upgraded. I missed it last year by $200. This year I am $800 away. I wonder what the qualifying conditions to be upgraded are.
