For those of you who have gift cards to burn there is a glitch on toysrus.com right now where the Xbox 360 Holiday Bundles are 25% off once you add them to your cart. It's a glitch because the promo is supposed to work on toys and video games and hardware are always excluded from these type of promos.

Both units are currently backordered but you can still checkout.

it may not work but if you check in with FourSquare app or maybe facebook? you get a 20% coupon off purchases of $100 or more, will be sending the wife to return the skylanders & borderlands tomorrow and see if it works with the coupon too.. worth a shot... i'm sure most clerks will shoot it down but some might not and the system will probably accept it too?

edit...I'm looking at the coupon, video games probably are excluded but hey?

I stopped by Kmart today and purchased a purple 3DS. Received the $5 AWARD card, valid now, the $35 gaming coupon, valid 10/21-12/08/12, and another coupon for 7,000 free SWYR points ($7.00) for purchases over $35, good until 10/28/12. So basically, if I go back and use the gaming coupon between 10/21-28, I get an additional $7 on the purchase of a free 3DS game.

I did check clearance, but it was pitiful, and it was just the same lot of games that was shelved when KmartGamer was conductor of the coupon train.

Yeah, I went and got God of War Origins w/Red Controller bundle for $32.75 and new Super Mario Bros. Used a Coupon for Bonus 6,000 points when spending more than 60 bucks and got the Award card for $5 and a new Spend $50 get $10 in points coupon. They seem to give variations of that coupon with everything nowadays. I have like 25 bucks in SYWR points from just 3 transactions

So it appears the %25 off clearance promo is working without any overrides/adjustments

I didn't see anything VG related today, even clearance, but I got a few other things. They recently gave me 5000 SYWR points to use this weekend. Stacked that with a 10000 bonus points on $45 purchase and $5 award card with $50 purchase. Got $60 worth of stuff for $55, plus a $5 award card, and $10 in points to get back to my account. Good deal overall. Might try to stack this with a new release VG one of these days.

Explain please


All I meant was games don't ring up like they should with these clearance deals. Remember when Kmart had the B1G1 for 50% or something. After I realized it wasn't rang up properly, I called and complained. They sent me a $10 gift card for the mixup. Ended up working out where my games became free. That's always the best feeling.

You sure the XL is too big for her hands? My 7 year old has an XL(did the upgrade from GS) and she never looked back. She loved the 3DS but once she saw the double size screen, the 3DS looked less like a game system and more like a cheap toy. No problem holding it either


My 5 yr old hasnt complained about the XL either. And he seems to like the bigger screen especially for Netflix.

360 deal good not that great considering we are close to BF and this was going price last year for deals during holidays. And this isn't the holiday bundle with 2 games (really 1 extra game.)

But I could use a 360 as an extender and have a $40 gamer coupon that needs to be spent.

And there has been sht at Kmart that I want to spend it on.

You read it wrong. its $17 PLUS tax..whatever that is for him

Ok got ya

Got a price match at Best Buy with no problems (king of Prussia, PA).

Got two Dishonoreds and I'll be trading one in tomorrow for 43.00.

What did they do take $25 off each game $70 + tax total or deduct the $50 & charge you for the $50 GC? Not sure what area you're in daily but the King of Prussia BB is my goto one for any TRU pm's all the guy managers can be swayed by total amount being spent & the gaming guys will try for you too. There's a guy with a beard he's the best.

Oxford Valley is great too the main gaming guy there will really work with you. He can even pay off your entire pre-order at checkout & for deals like the X-Com $15 GC which was only avail online. He'd mark the offer on your pre-order receipt to either deduct the $15 from $60 and/or "charge" you for the $15 GC. Montgomeryville is good too but they will call GS/TRU to confirm stock if you gotta CS for matches. Willow Grove is my home store but there's one older lady manager who doesn't really budge but all the other reps are great. Plymouth Meeting is really good too CS top notch but some of the reps will call to confirm stock usually the females but the 3 guys I know they go by the stores website.

Haven't rifled through each page, but the combined trade-in-value of Skyrim and Forza 4 at Best Buy is $55.50 w/ trade bonus.

So for people looking for a replacement Xbox (or no interest in those games), you can get a 250GB 360 for $250 + $55 GC (so essentially $200). Not bad.

The copy of Skyrim that comes with the Holiday Bundle is a redeemable code for the downloadable version. You can't trade it in.

Additionally, the copy of Forza 4 in there is a 1-disc "essentials" edition. Forza 4 for tradein isn't listed specifically as 2-disc, but you might run into problems there.

Ok, I have about $250 of BBY credit, so I went to BBY to see if they would match the TRU b2gc50 deal. My expectation for success was between 0%-1%, my BBY always rejects matching deals like this, especially like this. I think going in with ZERO expectations helped, I was prepared to peacefully walk away once they denied my request.

So, I go back to the game area first, they have a new guy back there that doesn't know anything. He tells me to forget it based on some BS logic that made no sense. As I'm walking out, I see the girl at the customer service desk with NO line. I figure I'll ask her the same question. Amazingly, she says "let me talk to my manager". She has a conversation with her Mgr a few feet away, he walks over, here comes the hammer of price match rejection. More amazingly he says, "we really don't match offers like this, but we'll do it in this case". I'm standing there speechless, an unprecedented favorable event in my long history of BBY price match requests.

To wrap this up, I go back to gaming again, ignoring the guy that rebuffed me with extreme prejudice. I find Persona 4 Arena & Xcom EU, 2 games my TRU will NEVER carry. The Mgr back at customer service doesn't even worry about calling TRU to confirm stock, he just rechecks the add which says "any two $59.99 games". Instead of taking $50 off, he charges the full $120 and actually gives me a BBY $50 GC. In effect, I net the 2 games for $70+tax using gift cards and certs ($120 in gc/certs go out, $50 gc comes in). Thank you BBY, you've been awesome lately.

Obviously, this is a YMMV situation, but I can confirm one BBY location matched the TRU deal to the letter.

I'd like to go check out my KMart for clearance but 1 - the games are never priced correctly and 2 - often times it's nearly impossible to tell which games are actually on clearance since many which should be aren't even stickered as such.

I can pay you if you go back and buy me two games and ship them along with gift card and best of all you use the credits you have left. Trust can be discussed.

Wasn't sure where to post this (I mainly lurk), Best Buy has begun their price matching to online retailers. I had to call to verify start date, but it is live. I wanted to help get the word out in case no one else mentioned it.
