The buena park and fullerton TRU were a total bust, only some copies of rage. Anyone have any luck with a pm at the fullerton Best Buy? Or as im like to call it the ullerton No-Buy, because the managers always have a reason to say "no" to a pm or coupon. Im really loathe to waste my time trying unless there was some change of heart there. Its been a while since ive been there.


That's good to know, thanks. I was thinking about going over to them today or tommorow.

I might check out the best buy in orange or longbeach of PCH today or tommorow now.

Actually yeah I don't think that game is going to send. TRU in stock possibly lying. Probably why the page was just delisted.

Successful price match in the BB on Maryland in Vegas. The supervisor just said "Awesome deal" and price matched without question. For BB apparently not PMing TRU anymore, when the associate was adjusting the price TRU was no longer an option and I swear I've seen it there before so there might be some truth to that.

I'm heading over to BB shortly to test my luck for a copy of Skyrim. I know almost every guy in the gaming department, but that could be good or bad. If not, I'll have the old lady go and bust out the cleave. Is it wrong of me to exploit my fiance's giant rack in the name of gaming deals? :D


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Went to my local Toys R Us store today in Calexico, CA. Noticed there were no PC games anywhere, till i found a shopping cart full of PC games. They had a good amount of Starcraft and Diablo Battlechests, along with a couple World of Warcraft chests. Also found a couple of RAGE, Spore, and Sims 3 copies. Sadly there were no Diablo III, no Starcraft II.

Just got a PM from Best Buy for Skyrim and Diablo III. Easy as pie, no questions asked. Man I wish Starcraft II was on the website.

Wow I got unlucky as Fuck. Pissed as hell. Went to Best Buy and asked if they price match, they were like yeah. So I showed them D3 & Skyrim on my phone for $10 on the website and the dude was like alright let me check myself on the computer. Sure enough it said $9.98 and he called over THREE guys to look at it and they couldn't believe it, preceded to call over the store manager, then they all got together and apparently called the head of Best Buy for GA and they were like "No-go, they're buying straight from the manufacturer" some bullshit like that. They made a huge deal of it. I didn't even bother arguing after they said no-go I was mad disappointed. Went to Wal-mart and they were just like no PM online at all.

Maybe someone could help me out... :cry: just wanted Skyrim & D3 honestly.

Bummer dude.

What kind of brand new ass store manager says he needs to call the regional manager about a price matching? That's some shit to lose your position too. That not reading your emails your damn self. :p

BB system does not have TRU in it when it comes to. I don't know why when it has a bunch of other lesser brand stores in there. But to me this is the proper way to stop a pricematch. Not "let me call they store." They have to have it in stock in really annoying. I think nexrt time I'll play the "shit, let me go rain check bitch with them, later." Maybe I'll catch a real salesmen.

Went to Best Buy to get Diablo 3 PM'd as well. The guy at Customer Service checked TRU.com and then took a good 10 minutes to confirm with a bunch of other employees in the vicinity whether they could PM it (understandable considering how much cheaper it was). Anyways, they eventually gave the OK so I was happy with the results. :)

Try the other stores. The first one I went to, the manager said the same thing. The second one was smooth sailing.

See!!! That's BS. If you don't know check with your manager. I had a couple folks want to tell it to nobodies. Look get authorization or don't. We don't need a audience.

They're not, it's probably Skyrim and D3 that are. SC2 & MW3 are actually pretty scarce since they're not on the website, while the rest of the games are still somewhat attainable at TRU (AC:R, Batman, BF3) and weren't that great of deals to begin with.

Off topic, but anyone have any work arounds for the Diablo 3 installation problem? I've been installing for nearly an hour and it's only at 0.8%. I am searching for fixes but all I get are solutions that are dated back to May and none of them work. I kind of regret D3 for $10 now, I thought they fixed this a long time ago...

Edit: and now I'm suddenly at 54%. Great.
Edit2: Played through the first few quests, everything looks good.
