Probably going to try and get far cry 3 at full price from toysrus. Looking forward to it, and by the reviews and such, it's worth it, then grab hitman at 50% off.

Yes, assuming the UPC on the back is the same, which it should be if it's the same identical item from the same store. I assume you meant return the "sealed" game with the other receipt.


Whoops yeah I meant "sealed" and the other receipt.

Thank you

I price matched Portal 2 at my local BB (from the Kmart ad of course) for $9.99 without any issues.

What surprised me is that Portal 2 was part of the PS3 Greatest Hits series with the red label and case. The game still has the Steam code to activate a PC version of Portal 2, plus it also have a blurb on the cover stating the Portal 2 Peer Review is 'now available'. I did get the game in that horrible red case, but did manage to swap it out after getting home....

Grab a Target ad (physical, paper ad) and bring it in. They should PM with no issues.

Huh, one of the Best Buys in my area that was previously listed as not having the Mario 3DS in stock is now listed as such. I wonder if they got a new shipment in.

couldn't find any portal 2s and didn't really have the time to get an employee to spend 20 minutes looking for a copy. does anyone know when the free $3 sywr credit ends?


Mine was set to expire today, so I went by on my lunch break and picked up the last PS3 copy they had. I really wanted the 360 version though (they were out) since I started it a while back but ended up trading it in when I could get a lot for it.

Wait...Kmart is asking you for a Kmart ad? Or is that a typo? Not sure if it was because I wouldn't put it past Kmart to ask you to bring in their own ad.

No, it's true. Not a typo. K-mart in Penn Station located in Manhattan, NY doesn't have any copies of their ad.

I find that hard to believe (not that I don't believe YOU, but I don't believe THEM not having a copy of their own ad) ... normally management has an ad or at least the electronics counter has one laying around due to so many price matches/corrections they likely have to deal with.

Well I appreciate your sentiment. Imagine how I felt dealing with this stupidity in person... I am still ad-less and deus ex-less

Back in the days when Josh (K-Mart gaming lead) was around and we had the SHC Gamer threads, he had to tell people all the time about how NYC stores weren't "ad supported", so that actually makes a lot of sense. Hopefully you'll get your hands on a copy soon.

Definitely not a typo. Around here in NYC they don't honor the nationally printed deals all the time unless you bring the ad in or if you have a cool person in the gaming department. My usual guy will ask the manager to PM.

With that said, the Astor location didn't give me the $10 price because it rings up at full price AND she insisted it is an online only price.

Has anyone gotten this to work at Penn Station joint?

Does TRU even carry Persona 4 in store?


I'm wondering the same thing.

Been awhile since I've done these types of deals at TRU: is tax calculated on the pre-50% off discount?

FYI. I didn't see anyone mention it. The TRU deal for the 3DS comes with a $30 promotional GC, which expires on 2/2/2013. It's not a regular GC. At least that's what was given to me.

It did end up being a pain at target. Long story short, she didn't want to PM, made it seem like it was an exception to PM their own site, and then said I would have to go get the game myself, and bring it back.

Good thing the person in electronics was nice enough to do it back there, and PM Gamestop as they should have in the first place. (Nothing online states that Gamestop is exempt.)

Either way, I got my game and only paid $30.

Stopped by k-mart, no Portal 2. They had ONE copy of Deus Ex for the PS3, so i bought that one. Can't go too wrong for 10 bucks.

So guess I'm screwed on Portal 2 PS3. This sucks.

I'm 34 years old, and damned it, I want my freaking half-undressed anime chick.

In for 12 to afford a dozen roses for my body pillow Kimiko.

Something odd (but cool) happened at TRU just now. I got back from buying a 3DS XL with Mario Kart 7 + stylus. However instead of a $30 gift card, I got a $41.99 one, so claims both the cashier and the receipt clearing showing that number.

I guess I'll know for sure next time I stop by.

do you generally need the ad to pricematch at best buy? I want to pick up two vita games (b1g1 50% off toysrus), but my toysrus doesn't have the titles i want.
