Guys, just as a heads ups..

Barnes and Nobles carries a lot of old guides. I picked up a couple of copies of sealed Red Dead Redemption GOTYs at my local Barnes and Noble. Granted these are not at 50% off... it's nice to have grabbed it at MSRP when you consider how expensive these go for in the 3rd party market.



i have no clue as to why u bought a couple of those guides...no one will buy it at those prices...prob not even at msrp i suggest u return

I only see one RDR GOTY LE guide go for $100, but all the others sold for msrp or lower. Doesnt seem worth it.

Kick in the nuts, huh. Make you feel bad for missing out the week before so they offer the coupon. Then bring it back the next week. Good thing is if you didn't use the coupon you can get your points back when it expires.


How do you get your points back? I ordered a 50% bonus trade coupon and had to go out of town and wasn't able to use it and it expired and I didn't get any points back. If I could that would be awesome. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Once you redeem points, they're gone. Don't use the coupon and that's on you. Sorry to be a jerk, but they're not going to give you back points because you didn't use the coupon.

At least that's how I've always understood it. I've never gotten points back for one unused code I had way back when.

I didn't think so either but I saw someone mention it earlier. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, I'd never heard of that/never got points back, so I can't imagine they started that all the sudden with how much trouble I get for trying to return used games within 7 days sometimes haha.

You have to call PUR CS. They will see that the coupon is expired and wasn't used. They will refund the points. I have done it multiple times. I first learned out about this on CAG when some folks had coupons that disappeared on the last day they were good.

Huh, I stand corrected, I never knew that. Kinda sucks, I would have done that if I'd known, but I've never seen it mentioned on their site or anything.

Where do you live that PS2s are $5 or $10?


Utah. Can't give away a PS2 or any older consoles here. Even newer systems are cheap. Last lot of 250GB Slims and/or Kinect bundles I bought were all <$100 complete. PS3 Slim systems with everything included run about $100 as well. Seems that Mormons are very privy to BF and other deals and tend to load up then...having 10+ kids each will make you look for deals apparently. ;)

This. I can see the systems alone MAYBE. But you need a controller / cables to get credit


With controller(s) and cables. However, if an A/V or power cable happens to be missing, I have about 100 of them lying around, so no biggie.

Should I pick up a guide for Dishonored? Does it need one? I bought Hitman and Skyrim so far

I wouldn't. From the reviews on Amazon, it's a pretty poor guide and an adequate picture-book.

Was able to get The Witcher 2 guide for $11.25 before tax. The receipt showed an additional 10% off.

This was at the dirtiest Gamestop I've ever been to. Rubber bands, paperclips and dust bunnies littered the floor behind the registers, and when the guy went to the back room to get my guide (they weren't even out on the floor display, just stacked in a huge pile in the back), I peeked back there and saw bags of trash on the floor, food on the counter (dude had to move a half loaf of bread to get to the guides) and barely a spot to walk.

The 2 employees told me that they were closing that store later this year. I can remember when it used to be a Babbage's. It's been there for years. At least there's another store down the road that the employees can transfer to.

I saw a small roach climbing on an Adventure Time DS case at a Gamestop I went to last week. Though I'm willing to bet your Gamestop probably has Philly-style roaches amongst all that muck.

The grossest Gamestop I have been in was when I was subbing for one. They just had empty cases every where, and it was right after Eb/GS merged. I got there in the morning and probably cleaned for two or three hours before anyone even walked into the store. I can't say there were roaches, but it was pretty awful.

Anyway, went and got my last batch of guides yesterday and I don't think I'm going to be grabbing anymore unless this is still going on next week and I end up in the last GS relatively close to me. Either way, I got Dragon's Dogma(planning on getting into it this week), SCV, and FFXIII for ~19. So I'm pretty pleased with that.

New ad is up. Not even worth making a new thread. Although somebody will I'm sure.

It's smart to end a sale on a tuesday. It makes perfect sense. More stores should do it I think.
