Can you price match a game more than once at BB? I can match the toysrus $10 off or just hold out for the inevitable $39.99 Halo 4 will be at some point before Christmas.

If you paid 59.99 for the game you can go back and get $10 back now, so you will end up paying 49.99.

If game goes on sale for 39.99 you can go back in and get another $10 back so you will end up paying 39.99.

My best buy would not price match $ 30 off 2 games from Toys R Us they said it was a bundle. I think they may have done one game though. But it still would have been more $. I had my receipt from TRU and they looked at ad on TRU website. Oh well.

Question for you guys:

I'm considering finally upgrading to a 3DS XL with BBY's $20 off deal, but I have a number of options in how I could go about paying for it (note: I have more than $50 worth of RZ points I was planning on saving for BF and future purchases):

1) Pay the full $179.99 plus tax using my Pitch-In Card (which has more than enough to cover the cost).

2) Use a $50 RZ certificate to bring the cost down to $129.99 plus tax and pay that using my Pitch-In Card.

3) Use the 3x RZ points coupon I got as a Premier Silver member (which expires Sunday) and pay for the full $179.99 plus tax using my check card to get 180x3 = 540 RZ points = $10 in RZ certificates plus 40 points (since I wouldn't get RZ points if I used my Pitch-In Card).

4) Same as (3), but use a $50 RZ certificate to lower the cost to $129.99 plus tax and get 130x3 = 390 RZ points = $5 RZ certificate plus 140 points, again paying with my check card.

Any thoughts as to which sounds like the best option? Thanks in advance. :)

If you're definitely going to be buying $60 worth of stuff on BF, and definitely buying the 3DS, the best strategy is to maximize your coupon.

I would buy it all in cash, get the triple rewards, and use the Pitch In Card + coupons on your next purchase.

If not for the 3X certificate, the best strategy is to use the RZC's, the PitchInCard, and finally cash for all purchases.

I went to K-Mart and got the purple 3DS and Paper Mario and NSMB 2 with $45 in coupons. Pretty stoked.

I added ME3 Wii U and AC3 Wii U into my cart on TRU, but the $30 hasn't been taken off. The $10 wasn't taken off either.

Went by Kmart this afternoon. Picked up Paper Mario Sticker Star for $39.99, Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask for $19.99 with the promo, and also received the $15 coupon. Exactly what I was hoping for!

I called in and explained, the halo preorder was in store and the COD preorder was online. She called TRU and did the adjustment. She refunded me 30 bucks to the online transaction.

In the toys r us ad next week they have the 32gb Ipod Touch (4th Gen) for $249.99 and you also receive a $75 gift card. I checked with my local toys r us and they are out of stock of these Ipods. What are my chances of having Best Buy price match this deal if any chance at all.

How does it work when price matching a deal with a gift card involved. Would they take the $75 off the price or give you a $75 gift card. Which it doesn't really make a difference either way. Thanks for the help guys.

This deal worked out pretty awesome for me, did 2 pick up at store orders, and bought halo 4 and black ops 2 for $29.99 each and just returned the other 2 $59.99 games.
