Quick question regarding this and one of the Gamer's Club promos, specifically the $20 off Tekken Tag Tournament 2:

Let's say I wanted to get Borderlands 2 for $60, TTT2 for $60, and get Sleeping Dogs free... now, would I be able to toss that coupon in so the grand total would be $100 + tax instead of $120 + tax?

Or, would BB instead see TTT2 as $40 and make that the free game, seeing as it'd be the lowest priced gamed? I really hope it's not this...

bad math...

Most likely going to pick up Forza Horizon and Medal of Honor: Warfighter on Tuesday, but I'm not sure which free game to choose. Maybe something on Vita.

This happens a week too early since I want Most Wanted Vita.

Is it usually a problem to exchange a game for another with these deals?


Once again, it shouldn't really be a problem as long...

1. You don't try to exchange the free game.
2. The game you are exchanging is the same price. (ie: $59.99 game for $59.99 game)

Of course this all depends on what CS is instructed to do, whether a prompt on the register or something from corporate.

At they very least I'll bite on some $19.99 titles...3 for $40 sounds great. Only thing I dont know yet is if I'll bite on 3 $60 games (Borderlands 2 is the only definite I'd grab, torn on the other possibilities right now). Gonna be tough to figure out.

To anyone who is only returning/rebuying game in the promo and worried about losing the certs, it really benefits to just go ahead and do it if its 2 or less games.

Sure you may be losing out on one or two $20 certs, but you're basically getting $20 off each title you already bought. And if you already have some of your certs cleared, and use them on this B2G1 before you return the "scapegoat" copies, you come out even cheaper.

Were I to not do anything next week...I'd end up with only $40 in certs I plan to use on Black Ops 2, leaving me to pay $24.20 difference out of pocket.

Were I to return/rebuy the games next week, I could use onlyONE $20 cert to make my total paid after refunds on the originals only $11.61 cash out of pocket, and I would end up having a $91.20 GC, and one more $20 cert left in my account.

Sure they may make my account go in the negatives, but I'll come out even again after i pick BLOPS2 and get that 1000 points, and I'd still have close to $50 on a GC.

Bigger picture..

Well there's egg on my face.

I went through the effort of price matching TRUs deal last week (buy two get a 50.00 giftcard). I bought two copies of Dishnored, and planned on trading one in.

Well, looks like I should have waited. Now the question is do I take my chances and wait for the 100% bonus to trade in my second copy of Dishonored? I guess I'll take my chances.

The only nice thing is I can use the the trade credit and 50.00 gift card on Halo and BLOPS2 instead if buying two games I don't need right now.

If you are going to trade Dishonored, I would do it now. Base is $27.50 which comes out to $43.20 with GCU. Even at 100%, I would figure them to drop the trade value to at least $20. $42 with GCU. That's if they drop the value to $20 and not $18 which I feel they may do.

Highest value is $20 so yeah trade it in now. People see 100% and think its a better deal, but don't factor longer game is out lower TIV.

Borderlands 2 was $20 with 100% promo which now 27 so you actually get an extra $1.20 with 50% promo.

Woohoo 100% is back. Last round I got $500 store credit from flipping games. The pawn shop in my town has 3ds games for $7 each and was able to pick up Mario 3d land Mario kart and Zelda 3d for $$7 and all newer games are $15 no matter what. Hope to score again

No, that should only be true if you return the free game.

If someone buys say...Borderlands 2, Dishonored, and Resident Evil 6 and Borderlands 2 rings up as free, you should be able to exchange Resident Evil 6 and Dishonored for same priced items and should be okay. If you just wanted a refund on the two games you actually paid for, then they would deduct the refund amount from those games to put on the game you got for "free" since the return invalidate the promo.

Of course that all depends if Best Buy would allow it.

Best Buy policy is to retun the package and re-ring out the games you keep; in that case losing your free game and paying full price for both titles. In other words, swaps are only going to work during the promotional period.

Now it is time for me to pick up the God of War Saga. Hmm... what do I want to pair with it...

Id really like to get 3 vita games for this sale. However one of the games I want (new little kings story) is download only. I'm not sure if best buy sells dd titles in store or on its website. So my questions would be does best buy sell digital download games? And if so would they count for the sale? Thanks for any help.

In OP:

B2G1 Free - good on 360, PS3, Vita, DS, 3DS and Wii games $59.99 and below *excludes all Skylander Products, PC Software, Digital Downloads and Pre-Owned Games


Edit: to further answer your question, you should be able to print out a slip at the video game kiosk in-store and if you take it to a cashier they can scan it and sell you the game (which is a code on the receipt you would put in to the PSN/XBL/etc).

Quick question. I just recently got my welcome package to the Gamer's Club Unlocked. Noticed the coupon for B2G1 on games $39.99 or lower. I bought Dishonored yesterday and wouldn't mind picking up Assassin's Creed 3, XCOM or 007 Legends and getting DOOM 3 BFG for free. If I just bring in my receipt and the coupon, will the coupon still work or no?

I'm curious, why are people thinking they can get, say, AC3 with this? AC3 comes out the week after, no?

Anyone looking at getting Doom BFG Ed, I've heard it's worse of a port package than the Silent Hill HD collection

Kinda disappointed myself since I never played Doom 3 and wanted to with this game.

Just scoured the thread and since I didn't see anything, I thought I'd ask... does anyone know if the B2G1 includes clearance games? I know the OP doesn't say they're excluded, but there are some nicely discounted titles at one of the Best Buys near me that I had my eyes on, and that sounds too good to be true...

Haha, same here. I'd be all over this with Black Ops 2 and Halo 4. Not an Assassin's Creed Fan and I already have Borderlands 2. Thinking about Medal of Honor, Dishonored, and Xcom but those weren't really $60 buys for me. The last Medal of Honor was really terrible so I'm skeptical about all the hype.

Haha yep! I was thinking Black Ops 2, Need for Speed and AC3. But lets pray for nice prices for black friday!

Not only that, but the way BB rings up these promos there will be no "free" game - they will average the price across all 3 so they will show on the receipt as $40/each. They do this to prevent return abuse. So if you return one the week after the sale, you'll get $40 back & still owe $20 on a $60 game.

All 3 games have to be $40 or under for that - how would that work with brand new games?

For the welcome packet coupon, pretty sure only the free game has to be $39.99 and under.

This is off topic, but this is probably the most active thread. About when do the BF ads start to leak? I was here last year but for the life of me don't remember. I want to get a Wii and if there isn't anything that much better, I'lll get it for 130 once the price drops. Good chance retailers don't focus much on the Wii, as it is pretty much done. Si I'd like to get an idea of what to expect BF

So when would they start rolling in?
