gonna be an interesting week with Gamestop 50% bonus and BBY 50% trade in bonus, I kinda feel like I have to rush this week and try to finish off some of my games that I don't want to keep around.

 

This week also has B2G1 <$20 coupons at Gamestop so could find some things to flip at either Gamestop or Best Buy, I generally don't trade much into Best Buy since it takes forever for each game and they can't add credit to an existing gift certificate.

 

The $20 price drop on MLB 14 is interesting, with this weeks $30 offer you can get it for $25/ea with a PM to amazon ($40x2 - $30 + tax), PS4 version trades into GS @ 30 and BBY at 32, if those values hold would be nice but a drop to $40 seems like it will force a TIV drop.  Infamous SS is also potentially a good mover with the DLC coming out on 8/26 (base game is NOT required but many people will probably want to replay it).

If you're talking about the copy in the bundle, you can't trade it in because it's a voucher.


No, just the regular version for :ps4:.

I'm not sure how it will work for ship-to-home preorders. If you don't mind canceling now (either online or through 1-888-BESTBUY) and reordering when the $10 GC offer appears, I recommend doing so.


I used a gift card that I already trashed. Probably better off using my other gift card and pre ordering in store, then returning the one I get in the mail in store and get a new gift card

Yeah, that should work. FYI, just note that (assuming you're GCU) that's still 2 copies towards your 3-copy limit.

I am, and I'm guessing there's something I'm missing? 3 copy limit?

You mean the coupons at Gamestop, right?

You can only buy 3 copies of a game per system with the 20% GCU discount, or you risk losing your membership.

Gotcha. I don't really see this game being one of those profitable/flippable games anyways. But thanks for the heads up!

Dammit I just bought South Park for $40 last week and now it's down to $30! Doesn't Best Buy give the difference back to you if you bring in your receipt within a certain time? Not sure if it matters but I'm an elite member.

I was gonna trade in Fighter Within for $11 and CoD Ghosts PS3 for $14.30 today, would it be worth it to wait till the 50% bonus? Don't the values usually tank so you only end up getting a few buck more.

Yes, bring in your receipt and the ad, and you should get the difference (tax included) on a gift card. Elite members get 30 days, I think, while Elite Plus members get 45 days.

Yep, you have 30 days for price adjusts for Elite, 45 days for Elite Plus, just bring your receipt back to the store.

That last bit is a blessing in disguise if they don't close the loophole on earning points on a couple of hundred dollar purchase every so often. Plus, it usually works for the Ibotta promotion when it surfaces, too.

But I get that it can be a hassle if you get someone who doesn't know how to do the trades.

Gamestop already has Metro Redux for sale. Did the street date on that get pushed forward/lifted?

Nope still 8/26. It says 8/26 on GS site also. Some stores just might be selling it early

Metro would have been tempting a month or two ago - but now with having just started Xillia 2 and Destiny right around the corner, by the time I get around to the Metro set it will be less than $30 anyway.

 

Thanks for the info OP!

I'll pick up Reaper of Souls for $16. Can't see it dropping much lower than that.

I know it was touched on a bit, but I have Metro on preorder for in store pickup.  I should be able to still get the gift card when I go in to pick it up right?  If not, I guess I can just refuse to pick it up and walk over to the game section and buy it.

Man I wasn't planning in picking up Metro Redux, on release atleast, but $40 w/GCU plus a $10 Gift card might get me.

I really shouldn't I already have Diablo 3 and InFamous: First Light next week to hold me over until Destiny drops.

I was JUST about to trade Watch Dogs and Ghosts to GS too. Checked the values here and they're higher by about $5 each. Reeeeeeeeeeeally hoping those values stick when the 50% turns on.

 

Thanks OP!

Hmmm.  50% bonus trade-in AND $10 GC with Metro Redux?  I need to finish the TLOU:DE DLC and trade that thing in.

Doubt you will get 45 for watch dogs. I bet the base will lower to $20 so you get $30 and then $32 with GCU making it worse.

The easiest way to get the gift card would be to just go up to the store pickup desk and request to cancel your order and then buy it in store like normal.  There's no incentive to preorder since there's no $10 myBestBuy cert being offered nor any preorder DLC. 
 
Or as long as your local store shows it will be available for preorder and pickup, place a new preorder on Sunday and cancel your old one.

FYI the Madden guide is $12.99 MSRP & you get a code in it for 6 MUT packs ($9 value.)

I don't happen to have GCU, but even if I did, that and the 15% off from buying the game make it $8.83. Anyways, with less hassle, and without needing GCU, walmart.com has the guide for $8.66 with free shipping and probably store pickup too.

 

Now onto the real matter at hand. Where did you get this information about the code for the MUT packs in the guide? Also, does BB or walmart accept returns on the guide? I don't want to end up actually buying this thing if I don't get my MUT packs or think it's worth it.

 

Edit - I just found it on amazon. Says you get two packs right away and one each week after that until you've gotten 6. How much does one pro pack cost? I haven't bought madden since '12, but I couldn't pass up combining the Target $15 pre order promo and BB deal to get madden 15 for $16.50.

 

Nevermind about the store pickup for the guide from walmart.
