Pre-Order any game and get the following games discounted:

 

Call of Duty: Ghosts - ( :xb1: / :ps4: ) $23.99 / ( :360: / :ps3: ) $15.99

Thief - ( :xb1: / :ps4: ) $23.99 / ( :360: / :ps3: ) $15.99

Son of Rome - :xb1: $23.99

Dead Rising 3 - :xb1: $23.99

 

Deal works online but not sure if it works in store.  Appears to be for GCU only.

 

LINK (if link doesn't work try reloading, I had trouble with the link on Best Buy's website as well)

 

If it works in store with a $5 deposit, the 50% trade up plus GCU you could presumably boomerang certain games back for a slight profit which would basically pay for your pre-order then use the gift card to pay for the game when it comes out.

 

A few options for those interested in the deal.

 

Not the best selection but decent prices for those planning on pre-ordering games and interested in getting any of the games listed.

Thief is the only one that I see that would net a profit, trading in @ $28.80 with GCU.    The rest are $22.40 or less.

 

Good deal though, especially if GCU stacks on the $24

The $24 is after GCU.

might want to note also that the $10 Gas Promo for Mario Kart 8 is also no longer adding to orders if you were hoping for that $10 Gas Card Bonus. the $10 Promo Deal is dead for that Game.

I'm looking for something that I'd actually WANT, If it included Season 2 I'd jump on it but I'm not buying Season 1 for the 6th time just bc it's on XB1 this time.

Well, the cheapest preorder is a skylander figure for $8.   http://www.bestbuy.c...d=1219225528198

 

It works to get the discounted game.

That's still $20 too much.

 

Thanks OP.  I was planning on making some preorders anyways.  Let's see what I can do with this....

If that's the case, then I'm no longer pre-ordering it. So the gas card would get added to your cart before? I have it my cart but all I get is the GCU discount

yea it would and also it used to be on the preorder page here http://www.bestbuy.c...o-kart-8-121399 and also it used to be listed under the special offers in the product description and it been removed from all those places. When it was first put up it was listed as While Supplies Last for the Promo.

Tempting, but I'm not so sure I'd pick up Ryse or DR3 for that price just to finish up the DLC.

Well that's pretty brilliant... Good option if nothing else. Kind of debating if I want to grab Thief with another pre-order though...

Are these the only 4 games to choose from? I own 3 out of the 4. Thief being the only one I don't have but with the reviews and my backlog I can wait for sub $20 by itself for it

Wish Thief was $15.99 for the PS4 copy. I played a little bit of it, and I wouldn't mind finishing it. I'll wait for a lower price.

I was planning on preordering Theatrhythm FF: Curtain Call anyway, so maybe I'll pick up Thief (:ps4:) while I'm at it, but...I dunno. :???:

So has anyone tried this in store? Was going to trade in watch dogs that I got from target for the Xbox live deal and not really urged to play it right now so will rebuy at a sub $30 price. But don't want to have to go to the store then home then back.
