I got SCV for $10 last Spring (maybe Summer) with one of these coupons. C'mon.

I'll be in for SCV. Passed over it the last time it was $10.

Otherwise, bunch of junk again. I don't think I've used a coupon in four months.

well with scv and prototype 2 you get solid prices without a sale stack so its not the worst batch in my opinion. prototype 2 is a blast to play !!

I find it funny to see all this hate for Best Buy while they are bleeding money out of their ass. Yet we love amazon even though all they do is price match best buy, GameStop and other retailers.

Agreed on Prototype 2 being fun. I bought both SCV and Prototype 2 last June/September for $10 each after @Gamer coupons. If they're going to have the same coupons as last year then I'm out.

Prototype 2's MSRP is $40, so I'll likely pick it up at the $15 price point if it doesn't happen to go on sale at all during the month. The Soul Calibur coupon is weak considering many CAGs probably picked it up for $10 many months ago.



I saw the collector edition at gamestop for 39.99

I'll probably grab Prototype. If they do a sale, it's an override when they price match right?

Awesome! These coupons will make great kindling for my fireplace!

Gotta hand it to Best Buy, they've really done a wonderful job of keeping my house nice and toasty lately.

They're saving that for two magazines from now.

Prototype 2 Blackwatch Edition or whatever the hell it's called would be nice if the coupon works for it, too.

Nothing for me, seems like the only good reason to have a GCU membership now is for the $20 pre-order certs.

Pretty much. If it wasn't for the $20 cert then I wouldn't even consider keeping my GCU. But in all honesty, the $20 is WELL worth the $15 a year.

...that along with the extra 10% bonus on trade-ins and 10% off pre-owned.


I thought maybe this issue would be half way decent since most of the folks BB sucked in this time last year with the $10 B:AC (and other good deals) would be close to renewing.

I might grab Prototype 2 and SCV for $10. The last couple of months has been meh and when there was a coupon that I want to use, there are no sales for the game. I haven't lost my faith in BB. They always have the best sales and a lot of games clearance.

Since I subscribed to the magazine the coupons have been horrible for me. I may pick up Prototype 2 just to break the streak.

I'm starting to wonder if I will use any coupons in my current year's subscription.

For those who haven't played it, Prototype 2 is a lot of fun

I'll definitely grab Prototype 2 with the coupon, missed it when it was $9.99 on the Microsoft Store website during Black Friday. Hopefully there will be a sale on it before the coupon expires, but if not, $15 isn't too bad.

I have not used of the coupons in the past 3 months and yet I still received one of best gaming values in years by subscribing. Do not understand all the hate.

Jeez, they're not even trying anymore. Soul Calibur 5 is a repeat (same price), Tiger Woods 13 is a repeat (lower price this time), FF13-2 is a repeat (HIGHER price this time barring a sale), Prototype 2 is a repeat (lower price this time). Only thing that sort of interests me is Prototype 2, but not at $15. 4 months in a row of nothing = I'm definitely not reupping my GCU subscription.


This. All of these games already had coupons in the past. What's up with the recycling? Very disappointed.

FF XIII-2 still isn't $20 regular at Best Buy?

I can somewhat understand the dislike, because a lot of people purchased subscriptions to @Gamer to get cheap/free games.

But IMO that is just a nice bonus when it happens. The main benefit is the 10% more in trade-ins and the $20 pre-order bonus. What other magazine/membership offers that.

I feel that GI is the better mag of the two but I so rarely buy anything at GameStop that the 10% bonus is useless to me 8-10 months of the year.

My GCU membership has paid for itself at least 10 times over. Pre-ordered 5 games, got $100 back, then was able to get another $100 back in price matches. I paid $106 (tax) for 5 games the day they came out. That alone makes any complaint I can possibly have 100% invalid.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Thing is if you use 1 coupon a YEAR, you've gotten your money's worth. I know we've used at least 5 now. If each saved us $20, thats $100 worth of coupons for $15.

Another month with no coupons that I am not interested in. The $20 preorder and trading bonus makes the subscription worth while but in the past three months I haven't used a coupon. The magazine leaves a lot to be desired and I find myself flipping through it to rip out the coupons and then throwing the magazine into recycling.

I'm not saying the GCU subscription is a bad deal but if your primary reason for getting it is the magazine and coupons you might be a little disappointed.

It's easy to slam the coupons but To me they're just a bonus when I use them. I'm on board for the 10% bonus and preorder promotion primarily.

Anyone know if you could use a coupon with a price match without an override?
