As the title states, saw a flier in store, doesnt matter what two games, buy any two mix and match, get a $15 gift card.

 

Good for those picking up infamous or tomb raider on sale.

 

I grabbed infamous and Metal Gear.

 

Not sure if YMMV, pretty sure it should be chain wide.

Did you grab those games today?

 

I grabed Tomb Raider and Metal Gear for the xbone yesterday and I didn't get a gift card

 

and it doesn't state it on special offers at the best buy website next to the games. 

 

Edit: NVM it had to be today since Infamous came out.

Well if I hadn't just picked up Zoo Tycoon and PvZ for Xone on AWD that would be an excellent opportunity to have gotten them.  Not sure what I would grab in addition to Second Son if I went that route.

Hope it isn't YMMV. I keep going back and forth on Metal Gear, this would push me over the edge.

Metal gear ground zeros is $25 with my GU discount, If you get 2 it would come out to $50. Minus a -$15 gift card, 2 copies would come out to $35. Might bite on this if true:

I'll return/rebuy Metal Gear when I pick up Infamous today if this is true. Would be pretty sweet.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition might be another good choice since it's on sale for $44.99.

 

OP, is this today only or might it last through tomorrow?

$35.99 with GCU and trades in for $44 with GCU. 

 

I would either grab two copies of Tom Raider to flip back to BB or one of Tomb Raider and one of Metal Gear V. Really would like confirmation of this.

Good thinking.  Too bad I already did this with GS->BB last week.  Don't want to get banned over $8/game.  Lol.

if you are going to sell the second copy it would have to be for 20$ or so to move it imo thus negating your 15$ gift card. if the second one is a gift however than it works out well

Not sure I follow.

Assume paying everything in gift cards and GCU is being used for everything for the record.

 

Two copies of Tomb Raider = $72 - $15 gift card back = $57. Trade in for $44 each = $88 total. Roughly $31 profit (tax aside).

 

One copy Tomb Raider & one copy Metal Gear V = $60 - $15 gift card back = $45. Trade in $44 for Tom Raider, $19.80 for Metal Gear = $63.8 TIV. Roughly $18.80 in profit (but Metal Gear can be played and beaten in a night which is why I'd be considering doing this today).

Damn Best Buy...

 

bought Infamous today and not only did they not have the game out at 11AM there was no mention of this otherwise I would have picked something else up (TR or MGS).

 

Can they add another game to my earlier receipt and give me the gift card without having to return and rebuy? Would really hate to have one copy of Infamous count as two on my GCU total.

Call and talk the same employee and ask about GCU.  He's probably never heard of that either.  :D

 

As long as it has been confirmed that it works here, they don't need to know about it since the gift card will pop up automatically.
