I think this deal is better personally. I got 6 games from this year's promotion (Madden, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, RE6, Halo 4, AC3).

$60*6*1.09(9% tax in my state) = $392.40 - ($120 in certs) - ($10 in certs from standard reward zone points) = $262.40.

48*6 = $288

I know it's not perfect because the savings aren't instant and require you to continue to shop at Best Buy, but the possibility of a PM and the pre-order bonuses make it worthwhile to me.

for me:

unless I hear anything great about the other games (ps3)
its hard to say no to these deals, you get almost $25 for each game and then you price match it down another $20 or so and you have a game you get on day one for $20 or less.

Could always factor in selling DLC too, not everyone does it, but I do, makes games even cheaper.

The problem is not all games hit $50. IE NBA 2K13.


1 game out of 20(?) Now hasn't gone to $50?

And yes the 20 includes last years b2g1 free deal.

Also Newegg is not tax free, but people will always claim fraud in this area and won't be convinced otherwise.

Nice, great to see the promo continues with another round of excellent games.

Just like in the current promo, I will buy every game listed, keep the ones I want (Bioshock!), sell the rest, PM all of the titles within my Silver 60 day timeframe, and pocket the $20 GC plus the points made off the purchases.

Even so it is not a better deal. Now that it takes 2 weeks to get your Cert you can use them on games. Here is an example buying 6 games with no price match.

Game 1 $60 + tax (for me (5%) that makes them $63). $20 Cert
Game 2 $40 + tax ($42) + $20 Cert
Game 3 $40 + tax ($42) + $20 Cert
Game 4 $63 + tax ($63) + $20 Cert
Game 5 $63 + tax ($63) + $20 Cert
Game 6 $5 + tax ($5.25) + $25 in certs left

=$278 + $25 Cert

Vs

6 games x $48 = 288

Now every game you get to PM makes it even cheaper. ACIII already gets a $10 PM this week. It is not blowing it out of the water but it is a better deal and can only get better. The NewEgg deal is set in stone.


They clear in two weeks now? Been too busy to follow other thread and I wasnt aware that certs didnt lower the value on items now. So not effecting price matching at all.

Yeah, it's been out a month. Silver status gives you an extra 30 days. I know not everyone is Silver, but nearly every game drops within 60 days.

Maybe it's time for me to finally become an Unlocked member. :bouncy:

By any chance would this work on the limited edition of God of War: Ascension? The one that is $79 and includes the DLC season pass? If I could get that for $59 I might just have to go for this sooner rather than later.

The only game I bought that didnt drop was Transformers, which I was able to return within my silver time and buy during buy 2 get 1.

I haven't gotten my points for RE6, NBA 2K13, or Dishonored yet. So yeah, the 2 week thing isn't right.

Yup. I just got $22 for the BBY AC3 DLC. $15 after $5 shipping for the steel book (only sold it because its a single disc SB for a double disc game). And the midnight release coin for $48 (after $1.98 shipping).

So after fees my preorder bonuses netted me $70+.

Before saying DLC isn't always like this, there has only been 1 game where my DLC didn't net me more than $10 and that was Rage. Heck my mech Baird code for Gears 3 sold for $48 by itself. I've sold so many yet am still amazed at how (for lack of a better word) stupid people are with their money.

$22 for an AC3 item and a 15 minute mission. At least with a coin I could justify them "collecting" gaming memorabilia like Baseball cards. But $20+ for a skin and 15 minutes of gameplay when the game itself costs $60 is ridiculous.

Except I have gotten mine in two weeks like clockwork and many others have also so we can call it YMMV. Either way, most people get their certs in time to use it on other games.

I'm in for every single game.
Except maybe South Park...

I'll play the game, get my $20 cert, trade it in for $40+, and PM it down the line.

BBY pretty much got my number for games next year.

I thought the 2 week points was a silver membership perk?

That may be true. If so, then it makes it less flexible but the math is still solid.

Why no Wii U love Best Buy? I know Injustice is coming out for the Wii U also, but the promotion only lists 360 and PS3.

It normally applies to Collector's Editions as well. Just check with the gaming rep just in case.

Pretty hard to say no to a $20 cert on a $50 Dead Island: Riptide game.

They might have changed it. If you clicked on the games on the list from the Offers page, they would link you to the list of the games (example: If you clicked on RE6, it would redirect you to a list with RE6 and RE Anthology/Archives.) but none of the new games are showing their collectors editions just the standard.

Hmm I might do this with GTA5 but there's probably a GOTY on the horizon. Last Of Us is a nice incentive. If BB can get Ni No Kuni on this list I can cancel my Newegg preorder.

Definitely getting: Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us
Probably getting: GTAV, Tomb Raider
Might get: South Park
After seeing them on here, I'm starting to ponder: Injustice, Riptide (with it being only $49.99).

A lot will depend on their TiVs and what kind of price matches are available at the time.

Definitely interested in a lot of these games but will wait to preorder any of them in case there's special promotions like free Steelbooks or copies of @gamer.

I might preorder Riptide if my BB still has the steelbook. If not, I will stick to my preorder on NewEgg.

You can preorder online and the steelbook will ship with it...I don't see how that's any different.

Holy shit! I'm loving BB so much right now. I'll be getting Bioshock,Tomb Raider,GTA V,Metal Gear,and Dead Space for sure. I might also pick up Gears of War. If I end up buying a PS3 I'll probably end up getting them all. To bad DMC isn't on that list.

Oh shit...just realized Splinter Cell was on the list,I'll be getting that as well.

I only want the Last of Us and maybe Gears of War Judgment, but for the others I want - I want them for PC. BBY needs to start showing some love for PC versions on these deals.
