Wonder if this will combine with the $50 GC promo at the MIcrosoft Store?

So this is the Madden+Destiny $399 bundle with a potential $50 GC?

 

Sony can I have my wallet back?

The offer is valid for any retail Xbox One game, and the offer is good for our Xbox One system bundles, too – so if you want to pick up the Xbox One Madden NFL 15Bundle or Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle, you’re getting another free game of your choice priced at $59.99 or lower on top of it!

Man, suddenly my $400 Titanfall bundle doesn't seem like a great deal anymore.

I've been thinking about this, but I think I'll still hold out for Black Friday.  What are people's thoughts?

 

I already played and don't care to get Madden digital so that's worthless to me.  Assuming you could trade in the free game (say, Destiny) for $40, you're only getting a $40 discount...

What $50 gift card?

If I didn't already have one, I would bite for Madden and another free game, which would be Diablo for me. Since you don't care for Madden and I'm not sure about what other bundles are available, I say wait.

It says bit doesn't work with other offers so maybe it won't work with the 50$ promo

Thanks!  Thing is I got Madden day one and played it already.  Wasn't my cup of tea.

 

I considered the Forza/kinect bundle, but that also doesn't seem Cag-worthy.  It works out to an extra $95+ for a kinect sensor which most new games will probably not use anymore anyways.  Yeesh.  Black Friday it is then.  :)

 

"Free game" sounds like such a great deal until you actually do the math.  Lol.

BUT when you consider they're selling the Kinect by itself for (a ridiculous) $150, you're still getting a deal. lol

really good deal...i feel like this is something to counter the Destiny PS4 bundle as best as they can

1. I wonder which stores are participating in this promotion?

2. If I did this promotion I would get the madden bundle and pick up destiny for free. I would then sell the madden code. Any idea what the code would be worth?

I picked up the Madden bundle last week from Best Buy (with 10% movers coupon and $40 in rewards).

 

Can I go back on Sunday for them to match this new promotion?

 

Basically do a return / rebuy to get the free game?

KMart and Target are doing it. KMart allows any game, Target doesn't allow Destiny.

Really good deal, its too bad the sunset overdrive (all white) and advanced warfare bundles aren't out, those are the only ones I'd want.  I hope they'll rerun this promo when that deal comes out.

 

It sounds like the promo is being run IN store since target and bestbuy leaks have both said you get a free game with purchase of xbox one, so maybe some sort of price match will work if you bought in the past 15 days.  gonna be pretty ymmv i think

Our CAG Best Buy employee said it's happening at BB and you'd get GCU free if you purchase a XB1 or PS4.

Bestbuy Normally, has to do a return then re-buy of the item. I tried this once, and they had to return the item, and i had to repurchase the item to get the promo. I had to return the item for refund and re-buy it.

Looks like I will be doing this on Sunday with the Madden bundle I got last week.

 

Well worth it for the free game plus get GCU for free from BB.

Great to hear, as best but is probably my best bet for this.

I actually have another issue. I have a Amex card (funded by a perks program at work) that has $325 on it, but of course the system is more.

Is there any reason purchasing a gift card ahead of time, and then presenting that along with my personal card for the remaining amount won't work?

Why can't you just do split payments?

I had an issue last year with apple, they hit the card for $1 to check it, then when they hit the card for the total value it failed.

If best buy will do split payments I guess that would work.

(I know amazon will not, but you can do it with a gift certificate.) I wasn't sure if best buy online or best buy retail would do split payments.
