so I preorder the evil within spontaneously at the store and didn't know about a free 10 dollar gift card.....will best buy match this in store with relative ease if I got back in with my receipt to get it?


If you put $5 down just purchase the game outright now using the pre-order receipt & get a refund for the pre-order. Otherwise return/rebuy.

Do I get SSB today? I'm sitting at 33 bucks on a giftcard at Target and I don't know if I should. I liked the demo but at the same time if I get it on 3DS two months from now when it comes out on the Wii U the person inside of me will say why bother if you already have it on 3DS. Any 0.00-39.99 games to get?

What? The person inside you needs to shut up every once in a while. There are worse things to waste your money on. A quality video game is never a bad purchase, even at full retail. Obviously you are on a video game site. So, video games interest you. Get the game on both platforms and enjoy them. If you like, you can trade in one or the other later on for maximum value.

unless im mistaken I think when you buy preorders full price before release it doesn't show the GCU discount?

 

guess ill be returning and rebuying then

this....though I admit the person inside is loud and I sometimes foolishly listen. though I wouldn't say its NEVER a bad purchase....im sure this site is full of people in debt which is never good. that said I agree.....tell the person inside to stfu and as long as your bills are paid, you are saving money and have the spare cash to spend....go and enjoy it.

Does anyone know if the Smash deal also applies to manhattan kmarts?  I don't see the offer in the weekly ad for the 34th street Kmart but do see it if i switch to another kmart in New Jersey.

 

Anyone been to the penn station kmart yet?  Wondering if they even have it.

I just returned from Kmart and picked up two copies. The $15 bonus (well, $30 for two copies) did not load onto my card. The lady at customer service said the points did not load on for an earlier customer either. The store manager was able to load $25 in points from his office and gave me the other $5 in cash. Make sure you check your receipts when you buy.

In-store pre-orders reflect GCU upon p/u, BB.com on the spot. I never pay more than the $5 for in-store pre-orders there`s no reason for me to lock up so much money early. Plus it makes things simple when BB adds stuff or messes stuff up I don`t have to worry about getting the full amount back to purchase the game in another way.

Dammit. I was gonna go get Smash Bros. at Kmart, but apparently the closest one closed a couple of weeks ago. The nearest one is an hour away so it looks like I'm not getting Smash Bros. from them, as I can't find it listed online at all.

Ughhh like all the Kmarts in Washington are really far north or south of Seattle. You'd think the stores closer to the biggest city in the state would remain open. Then again, they have way more competition there too...

Might just jump on the Target Shadow of Mordor deal for the $10 gift card, and use that on Smash Bros. while pretending I don't care about the $35 of savings points I can't have....

Nobody would match this deal either I'm assuming?

Any CAG BB employees have insider info on possible promo coupons related to the Disney Infinity Marvel SH 2.0 tech demos this weekend? Have 0 interest in the game but sometimes the coupons apply to other items, games, accessories. There`s alot of others who want the game so they`d appreciate the heads up too.

It doesn't say anything about them giving out any kind of coupons. Just a demo.

My local Kmart had no Smash Bros. there unfortunately. It's not really surprising actually since they almost never have games on release day. What a truly awful place.

Sometimes only stores doing the demos get these types of promo books, some stores accidently put them out prior to sales others completely blow it altogether. Since the events are tomorrow if there`s any store reps should see them.

so I went to get the 10 dollar gift card for evil within. argued with the guy for a few minutes but he absolutely insisted they could not price match their website on this because he did not know how to give me a 10 dollar gift card and because it was an online promotion. I then cancelled which is just as well my wallet nor backlog really needed the game. that was 5 minutes of stupidity but nonetheless best buy would top themselves in a few minutes when I went to pick up the smash bros 3ds pre order

 

my cashier was some new girl who was clueless. after the other busy cashier helped her figure out how to scan my ticket for the preorder they went and got the game. the person helping her then  went back to her register but when new girl  tried to enter my phone number she couldn't. she then got her helper to show her how and then my GCU wouldn't unlock. the helper then took me to another register so new girl could ring up other customers

 

the person helping me now called over manager but he was clueless. he then called over the gaming \manager who solved the problem. apparently between now and the Destiny launch best buy was kind enough to make me yet a third account....so my smash bros preorder was under this new account which lacked GCU, I also suspect it is now my default account.

 

all in all......way to win best buy.....best buy the only place where a 5 second pre order pick up can last 40 minutes.

1 out of the 5 Kmarts had Smash, didn't get the $15 in points either. That store is terrible so I'll just call them about it.

Multiple Kmarts around me and no copies of Smash Bros. for 3DS. Seriously, why even advertise this, along with a promotion for it in your ad if you're not going to carry the damn item? Ugh...

Kmarts are rare in my area.  I went to 1 Kmart that actually had Smash in the glass case.  No one working in electronics department.  After waiting for awhile and asking 3 employees to get someone to help me, I was finally able to buy Smash.  Unfortunately, there isn't an extra 15K points for this purchase.  I'm gonna e-mail customer service about this.  Shopping at Kmart is such a huge hassle.  It is just painful.

sounds about right for worst buy. a typical visit usually consists of a 30+ minute transaction so im only surprised when its less than that. they botched a purchase l made last night but didn't notice till after I left the store which was at 9:30pm so couldn't get back in, meaning i have to go back there again to return a $40 copy of BO2. *sigh*

Manhattan Kmart does not honor the ad, other select stores don't either.

Also got smash which was not out on the floor. They found them in the stock room along with SoM. I also did not get the $15 in points so will need an adjustment.
