BestBuy Pikmin 3 Wii U $26.99 with gamers unlocked coupon/@Gamer coupon

Pikmin 3 - Nintendo Wii U $54.99 ( $26.99 gcu coupon )

 

It's Back! (was on sale before, on Saturday (4/19/2014))

 

It seems "Best Buy Math" works best in our favor when you combine any "sale item" game with a GCU coupon. Right now, Pikmin 3 for Wii U is on sale for $54.99 (normally $59.99). So with the GCU discount, the $20 OFF coupon, and Best Buy Math, it comes out to $26.99.

 

Is it a good time to bite? Or is it better to (save my gcu coupon and) wait for a better sale within the next two weeks.

 

Don't know when the $54.99 sale ends. Maybe today?

 

Hmmm $26.99... Tempting... What you all think?

Pikmin 3 is great. I liked Pikmin 1 better because of its focus on speed and precision, but Pikmin 3 is probably going to be most people's favorite Pikmin game. It looks gorgeous too.

Man this is tempting. I loved Pikmin, but anything over $20 is a hard sell for me anymore. Maybe if it was on sale for $49.99 it would be easier to bite. That would put it at ~$20. Still...

I would be all over this if I had a coupon.  So there is still a digital magazine with coupons, right?

I'm the same way about buying under $20, but for a Nintendo exclusive, that's pretty rare, which is why I am on the fence. Get it now for a great price, or take the gamble of trying to wait for a sale before 5/3/14 (coupon expiration date) and get it for an even better price? What to do? =)

 

(Oh hey, you guys think Best Buy does price adjustments on stuff we use GCU coupons on. If so, then it's an easy buy for today!)

Yes, there is still a digital magazine with coupons. (I think we have one more month of them left before they stop)

No, I don't think they print the physical magazines anymore. ( I think to be eco friendly =) )

It is in fact on SAIL in the Pacific Ocrean on a boat from Mexico.  As for a lower SALE price, its anyone's guess.

It's YMMV. I've called the BestBuy number twice. First time they did refund the difference and still had GCU applied. The second time they refunded only the sale price without the GCU (a couple cents). Maybe you might have better luck trying to price match using the email support.

The New GCU doesn't get you the coupons either, just so you are aware.

I did put this in the trade thread but I'll drop it in here too.

I'll trade this coupon for $5 Xbox Credit.

As always, people are getting GCU and the @Gamer sub confused.  The digital coupons/magazine are associated with the @Gamer subscription.  The @Gamer sub opportunity ended in Sept/Oct so you would have had to have an active sub or renewed by that time to get these coupons.  Renewing or buying GCU will only get you the GCU benefits (20% off new games, 10% off PO, +10% trade in, etc)

Answering before it's asked:

You needed to be a former @gamer member to receive the coupons. You would have needed to be an existing member or had renewed with the old program when it was $15/year.

If your old sub was set to expire April 6th or before, you won't get these coupons. The email for these coupons were sent out April 7th.

You can buy the coupons from others who aren't using there's. If you were willing to buy the print mag, this may be the way to go.

So just to make sure...I signed up for paid GCU in March ($60 sale). No way for me to get these coupons other than trading, right?

No, that'd be "double-dipping"--Best Buy doesn't permit it.

yes you had to sign up or renewed 7 months ago so the only way to get these coupons is to trade with someone or buy one from someone
