I'd LOVE to get TTT2 for $25, but I'm not crazy enough to go to Walmart on Black Friday. Are there any stores that price match Black Friday deals?

i been waiting all year to get a wiimote. Is anyone going to have a sale on them?


Yeah, that's what I was looking for, too. Nintendo probably doesn't want any store to have Wiimotes on sale since the Wii U doesn't come with any.

WTF, Best Buy's new pricematching policy basically allows them to deny ANY pricematch at their discretion. I doubt the highlighted section applies only to online PMs.

No pricematching from Sunday before Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday - does that include all physical store ad PMs or just online PMs?

Per the Business Times article Cheapy linked/original WSJ article:

Later on, the WSJ noted that there were some catches to the price-matching guarantee, including: Prices from the Sunday before Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday (often, the most aggressive period for discounting) would not be matched; only the prices of 20 specified online retailers (including Amazon, but not small or obscure sellers) would be matched; and Best Buy staffers have the leeway to decide against matching prices if the store decides that’s in its best interest.

SPLASH!

That's always been Best Buy policy. In fact, I think every store that has a price match policy has the same exclusion.

Some states (such as Oklahoma) show increased prices in their ads. Please check pages 6-7 in this ad for pricing relevant to your state.


Oh boy, guess what state I live in. Good bye $25 XCOM. :(

I know there has been a lot of discussion about BB not PMing deals between T-Giving and Cyber Monday.

If someone purchased AC:3 (for example) the week it came out couldn't they just buy another copy on Black Friday and then return that unopened copy with the original full price receipt?

Yes. But then they lose the 1000 RZ points for preordering it.

Pay attention to gamefly. No discs to chip and free shipping. I've already got resistance for $10.

Yeh it's strange. Sony said they were working with retailers for deals on Vita and I guess I just assumed they were going to also discount games and their very overpriced memory.

Unfortunately, I think that's the only way. I went last year and picked up a bunch of $10 games for the kids that weren't listed before hand

Anyone seen anything for a 3ds XL console deal? Looks like some decent stuff for the normal console but no major bundles for the XL to this point from what I have seen.

Ugh Walmart opens at 8pm? I'd love Forza Horizon at that price but I don't think I'm willing to rush Thanksgiving dinner / spending time with family to go there. Maybe I'll stop by later and there will be a small chance they'll still have them.
