Oh man thought it was 29.99 after The coupon.

There's one in the area about 60 miles away. About to gas up.

Save your gas and time. Have your closest store OMS it from that store to theirs. You pay for it (and apply your coupon) now and they'll call you to pick it up when it arrives.

I think my wife seeing me play a game with a highschool cheerleader that allows upskirt camera views might dampen any hopes of bedroom co-op more than budgetary concerns. :)


Lol, it's not about the cost of the games as much as the quantity of games I have been buying... This last week I bought 6 games and only beat one (shadow of the damned).

The deal hunter in me is dying to pick up PS3 versions of ME3 and Battlefield 3 for $10 even though I own both for Xbox 360. I guess I am just anxious to feel like I am getting something out of the coupons before they expire. Any justification for either game on PS3 if I already own them on Xbox?


Buy them to make a quick buck online?

When I subscribed, they gave me the month before this cause they were out of stock of this issue.

Is there any way I can get the magazine this is in if i complain?

Wow, did Gamespot pan RE6. You might wanna consider the video review before picking up preorders tomorrow.

not really very surprising. RE, and cacpcom in general have been spiraling down the drain for years. Im not sure what the deal is with most Japanese devs these days but they just seem to be unable to make a decent game anymore, with a few exceptions if you like traditional RPGs and stuff. Dont even get me started on the fiasco with Capcoms fighting game BS

My wife had an issue with it too, but then I remembered she's just a woman so it doesn't matter what she thinks.

Should at least have asked for a kiss in return. You never know. One act of kindness for another. :D

:lol:I had the exact opposite experience. I was in BB to renew my Gamer's Club Unlocked subscription for another year and was debating if I wanted to grab Mass Effect 3 for PS3 for $10 or not, since I haven't even opened the copy of Mass Effect 2 I bought for $5 a while ago.

So as I'm standing there shooting the shit with the gaming rep, this hot mom comes up and asks him about Madden 12 for the 360, which she wants to get for her kid. She has a pre-owned copy in her hand. So I had my coupons out anyway to rip the ME3 one off of the rest and notice the $15 off a pre-owned Madden 12 or NCAA Football 12 one. I'm like 'I have a coupon here that'll get you $15 off that used price' and hand it to her.:) She's smiling and thanks me at least 2-3x.

Then, of course, I did nothing to follow up.:-s#-o Not that I woulda ever stood a chance with a woman like that anyway, but I mean....damnnnnnn.:drool:

Damn you guys! I've only played about 30 minutes of ME1 and have ME2 unopened. How can I pass up a $10 copy of ME3 to complete the trilogy?

Question: Best Buy now price matches Amazon, right? Regular edition of ME3 is 20 bucks on Amazon so could I get Best Buy to price match the $20 price and then use my $20 gamer coupon to get the game for free? I'm new to gamer (just signed up less than 2 weeks ago) so I'm not sure how these coupons work. I see the "fine print" says not valid with other coupons or offers but a price match is different, no? Anyone have any experience with this??

Matching AMZ is YMMV and double dipping with PM is also, extremely YMMV.

No you can't price match and use the coupon. And my best buy doesn't match any online prices.

Going to get RE6 and Lollipop for myself tomorrow and a ME3 CE for PS3 for a CAG friend. Called my store, they have one ME3CE and are holding it for me till tomorrow...or so they say.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Nice. I was able to get a PS3 ME3 CE for 10 bucks. I just wish IT Was a 360 copy instead


I'm trying to decide if I'd rather have the N7 version on the PS3 or the regular 360 version. Since your save carries over, I think the 360 would be the better choice for me (assuming I ever finish ME2), but I'm not 100% sure yet.

No you can't price match and use the coupon. And my best buy doesn't match any online prices.



Well one of my friends who works for Best Buy tells me that they are supposed to price match Amazon (at his store at least) despite what some misinformed associates tell you. I just didn't want to bother him with some Best Buy questions if I could get the answer here but I guess I'll bug him a bit just to shed more light on this question lol.

I remember someone posted that it is a trial thing with them matching Amazon, so apparently it's only happening at some stores. As far as pricematching and then using the coupon, that's considered "double dipping" and they aren't suppose to stack the coupon on top of that if they go by the book. Of course, that may be YMMV if you get lucky.

I am a gamers club unlocked member as of last month but haven't received my first gamer issue. How do I retrieve the coupons that are being mentioned? I would love to pick ME3 for ten dollars.

Thank you so much OP!!! LC was the only thing I wanted this month. I had $15 in credit so paying $5 for it out of pocket was a steal.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Boy, they sure waited till the last minute on ME3 and LC. I tried ordering both online for store pickup, but apparantly there is no way to use the magazine coupons online.

They told me to just call my local store, and they have pulled them now so I can pop over and snag them on cheap.

THIS is why I love CAG!

I wish we could redeem these stupid things online. GAH, hate dealing with BB personnel. And what a waste of gas and time. I guess the point is to get us inside the store, though. Anway, thanks, OP. ME3 is only worth $5...and that's exactly what I paid (with RZ).

Grabbed BF3 (PS3) & ME3 (360) for 20+tax. I didn't want to drive far for the ME3 CE (PS3) so I just grabbed ME3 to complete the trilogy. I now officially own all 3 ME games for $25 so I'm happy except I haven't even started ME1 yet.

I live in bumfuck Wisconsin and my store just started to. Though only 1 of the 3 employees standing there knew about it. The other three both commented "really, we do?"

Nope, just did it about an hour ago. No override necessary.

I found it funny that before she even scanned the print-out, she immediately said "That's worth $5, by the way."
