As the title says, you get a $10 bonus for :ps4: and :xb1: game trades when you buy a used game (I think it's per game, but it's hard to make out the fine print) and all strategy guides are half off.

 

Otherwise, there isn't much:

 

:ps3: :360: :wii: Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013 w/ Gun - $19.99

:360: :wiiu: :wii: :3ds: Wipeout: Create & Crash - $19.99

:ps3: :360: :wii: :vita: Angry Birds Star Wars - $19.99

:ps4: :xb1: :wiiu: Angry Birds Star Wars - $29.99

 

Whoopie. :roll:

haha, have a good new year guys. I'm sure there will be plenty more weak ads during this year. This one isn't too bad considering 50% strategy guides might be nice.

Well I dunno if this is new, but with PUR you now get 10% off guides. May have been like that before but not from what I can remember

It's always been that way. I think the free card gets the discount too.

Even if they are it's gamestop. That will merely bring them down to around Amazon prices or slightly below. The only one I'd be in for is the skryim legendary edition CE guide if I could find it.

It may take a bit for it to show on the website. I bet it's working in store today.

The discount is coming up in the cart but when signing into my account it takes the 10 percent off instead of the 50 originally very annoying.

That ABSW for $29.99 for :ps4: is almost tempting... I know it will drop further and I can wait.

Very true. Anyone find a way around this? Would be nice to pick up the Zelda boxset for $90

You know it's like..a dollar on a smartphone right :lol:

I kid, but it really is a shame they charge $50 for these games.

Those were thrown out in October or November.

 

Also, what happened to that B2G1?


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

I just didn't sign in, in the end I was only buying something 10 dollars worth. So I didn't really feel like calling them about it either, just picked up the dead rising 3 guide (online exclusive) I got my others from bb.

Yeah I am one of the few people who don't have a smart phone, but I would never pay $50 for that game. That is outrageous. It was like Dungeon Hunter Alliance at the Vita launch. $40 for a game that was $1 dollar on ios or $15 on psn. It's just publishers capitalizing on console launches. If ABSW  launched at $29.99 I think a lot of people would have picked it up just to have something else to play.

That was only rumored, taken from a Puerto Rico ad for GS.

 

I found out in another thread that you have to buy a used game to get the $10 bonus for :ps4:/:xb1: game trades, so I've updated the thread title and OP accordingly.

Now this is only select game guides online instead of all. The discount is shown on this discount page:
http://www.gamestop....des,28zu0,13162

However when using a power up card the 10% discount stacks on top of the select 50% off.
