Good deal, but as a GCU best buy member I preordered for $42 :)

"wow" to free shipping? That's pretty much a given nowadays when it comes to game retailers selling new games.

lastly, it's Tropical "Freeze"

-_-

Best Buy deals have really gone downhill ever since lowering GCU price to $30

XBL deals are absolutely shit compared to PSN, but even those have been sucking

DELL is absolutely the worst online retailer for video games. Avoid them at all costs.

Aw, what's wrong...does an internet opinion about video games disagree with yours? Cry more.

For the millionth time if TRU has a deal that is paired with a Gift Card it is always and forever going to be B&M only.

Eh em, you mean Tropical Freeze, right? Not Tropical Breeze ;)

 

I already ordered Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze from Toys R Us back when they had a Buy 1 Get 1 40% Off sale which included pre orders. Stocked up on 6 Wii U pre orders and 2 3DS pre orders at the time. Only games I'm still waiting on is this one and Watch Dogs (might be a little while on that one, but I'm a patient man).

 

But I decided I didn't want to wait for the game to ship, so I pre ordered at Gamestop as well. I'm taking off work Friday and picking up my copy in the morning, then playing all weekend. I'll keep the TRU copy sealed, seeing I'm a huge fan of the franchise and a collector.

 

Great deal though for anyone who has yet to pre order. This game has the potential to surpass 3D World, and I believe will be one of the best games of the generation. DKC games are top-shelf, and this one easily dwarfs anything up to this point.

Erm, yeah, that.  Whoops.  Is there a way to correct that?  Notify a mod?

As the OP you can edit the title. It might be under advanced options. Just click edit on the first post

This might sway me to buy the game day 1. Its a Nintendo title so its not like its going to go down in price anytime soon.

 

BTW, what ever happened to the TRU megathread we had a few months ago?

YMMV,It`s a small savings & you end up spending an additional $10 but as a GCU member it may work for you. Pm the GC deal @ BB $40 for the game & a $10 BB GC. For non GCU members though clearly the better deal than paying full price @ TRU unless you've got credit there.

So the odds of BB giving me a PM are good? Do I just email them from my GCU account? Never have had to PM anything before.

Except their Low Price guarantee states it excludes offers that give gift cards. Probably YMMV on whether or not they'll PM it.

That was my thinking. Matching a GC isn't the same as a standard PM.

They won`t match it if you try over the phone in-store is your only chance. Over the last 2 yrs per CAG feedback it`s much better than a 50/50 chance. If there`s a TRU close by even better otherwise bring the ad or have the ad on your phone. They tend to call & confirm that the games in stock @ TRU & TRU can be bad with that so try as early as possible. Since you`re GCU let them know when requesting the match & "allow" them to think you paid $120 for it. That`s the only good thing about the $120 "GCU costs $120 & I still don`t get access to the best deals". Sometimes it`s the customers who are the sales people lol.
