$39.99 is their current MSRP. $40 x2 = $80 - $30 = $50.

Still waiting for Stick of Truth to drop to $29.99...


There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

It already did.  Personally I'd hold out for the $20 mark, surprised it hasn't hit that yet but it's coming.  Like the dragons it's on it's way.


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

$39.99 is their current MSRP. $40 x2 = $80 - $30 = $50.

GCU should make it cheaper, hopefully it will work with this. $32 x 2 = $64 - $30 = $34.

The other games that are apart of the PS4 offer are:

 

Infamous: SS

MLB 14: The Show

The Amazing Spiderman 2.

 

There's nothing indicating that those are $39.99, too though. It's a shame the selection is shit, because this could be a pretty sweet deal stacked with GCU: $80 for two games - $16 GCU- $30 offer =$34. Still might be worth it to some.

BB thread or not, I find "loyalty" to any given retailer to be (excuse my frankness) downright moronic.  Which is what programs like GCU are designed to do.... people will skip deals they want from other retailers because they are "loyal" to one in particular.  

 

It's no different than console fanboyism and how some people will only play a certain game if it comes to WiiU, refusing to acknowledge any potential benefits in, say, a PC or PS3.

 

That's my 2 cents anyways.....  I mean I know I prefer Amazon for various reasons, but if Best Buy or Wal-Mart or whoever has the item's price + shipping lower than the prime membership I pay for I'll buy from them rather than wait and hope that Amazon PM's it.

I think you're missing his point though.  He wants the $30 at BBY, because his GCU would make it $24.  He doesn't want to pay the $30 that other retailers have had.

Then in that case, he's not really waiting for a $30 price like he said above.  He's waiting for a $24 price, which he would get with a $30 price + GCU.  That's totally different.

 

I'm waiting for a $20 price point.  Whether I get it for $20 from Amazon or a use my roomates GCU and buy the game at $25 at Best Buy, I don't care.  Had my price point been $30, I'd have bought from Amazon (or Gamestop) back then.

Went back to $40 everyday at Amazon and GameStop. $27 preowned at BBY with your GCU discount.

I'm confused as to where I said that I was strictly loyal to only Best Buy...? 

 

I am loyal to no one company, just as they are not loyal to me. Had the game been $25 or less (my sweet spot -- and yes, I am cheap enough where the $5 is a make-it-or-break-it kind of deal) at Amazon or GameStop, I would have bought it. The reason I brought up GCU, and d8onausa nailed it on the head, is because I could get the game for $6 less when it drops to $29.99 at Best Buy. Bringing it to my sweet spot of $25 or less. Not to mention a gift card I have for there as well.

I think it's all been a misunderstanding lol.  I thought $30 really meant $30, not $30 pre GCU (or $24).  Forget I said anything?

Fair enough, I think there was a misunderstanding on my end as well. I apologize. Thank you for being civil :)

Some people prefer different retailers for various reasons.

I personally don't support Target and have not purchased a single item from them in almost 10 years now. Not that I'm "too loyal" to other stores, I just don't like their corporate practices and will refuse to support it.
