For anyone interested in one of the special editions of CoD:AW, check your local store after all.  I just got back from the midnight opening and they had one Atlas Pro and a few Atlas editions for each system, despite everything saying that there would be no inventory in-store.  The conspiracy theorist in me wants to think that they did this just to avoid coughing up the extra $10 for pre-orders on top of GCU.  

 

No swag at all and only five (yep, FIVE) people in line total.  So it's official:  Ghosts completely killed the franchise. . .

it's the day of digital my friend. why go out in cold 20 degree weather (in my area) when ou can download the game week ahead of time and play it once it's unlocked.

On the bright side... Can you play zombies or is it only on the season pass?

If you're getting a note 4 you should've taken advantage of their any smartphone trade in is $200 off that phone. Much better than gcu.


I did two weeks ago :) However there is no way to get in on this deal now having done so since it would require a return and rebuy, getting hit with etf from my carrier in the process. I figure i can buy the go phone for $15, donate that to a church, and get another two years if i really wanted to get in on this. Prob not gonna bother though since i figure the deal gets killed sometime early tomorrow.

Just got back from Best Buy and picked up CoD:AW and extended my GCU. I preordered the game about a month ago and put $5 down. I paid with 2 gift card (one for $20 and one for $14), $10 Cerificate from NBA 2K15 preorder, and $30ish on my CC. 

 

I had traded in CoD Ghosts and received the $10 coupon for CoD: AW but i forgot to use it while i was making my purchase. I tried to return it and redo the transaction but the employee first tried to deny my return and told me to come back tomorrow, after i insisted she asked a manager who told me if i returned the game and repurchased it with the coupon i'd lose the $10 certificate from preordering the game but she said she'd process the return if thats what i wanted. Ended up leaving so i still have the $10 CoD coupon in hand.

 

What are my options? Can I do anything with the coupon? Should i buy another copy of CoD with my GCU discount and the coupon and flip it somewhere else for more credit? Or is the coupon just trash and take the L? Thanks in advance.

You could get it on a different system (just to avoid an accidental overshot of the maximum later) for $38 with GCU and the coupon, then turn it in for $44 with GCU, or you could post on CL that you're selling it for $50-55, see if anyone bites, THEN go buy it at Best Buy and have the person meet you there to pay you, pick up the game early, then sell it.

So from what I understand, I can't use my "trade-up" $10 coupon on my pre-ordered copy of CoD:AW and get GCU for $30? I currently do not have an active GCU membership. Also, can I still get my $10 My Best Buy rewards certificate on top of all that? 

 

My plan was to pick up the game, get GCU for $30, use the 20% off perk + use the $10 coupon to make the game $38 pre-tax, plus my $10 certificate for meeting the pre-order pick up requirements.

 

Edit: My friend with an active GCU membership was able to stack the 20% off discount with the $10 trade up coupon. Making the game $38 pre-tax.

Yea I went and got it too... There were 20 people... Which was still terrible for a city this big. I remember when people would line up around the building hours ahead of time.mit was a completely different story compared to MW3.

I checked my Diablo 3 game on Saturday and the trade in value at BB was $31 and at Wal-Mart $40.  I checked on Sunday when I had planned on taking them in and they dropped considerably across the board.  Now with the 50% trade in it equals $34 which sucks.  With my GCU I got $36.  I picked up Destiny Expansion Pass which the GCU does not work on but I bitched and they gave it to me.  Pretty disappointed they nerfed trade in values to accommodate a sale

Pretty common when BB does the 50% extra trade-in value promo.

They always do this. BB will rarely, if ever, hand out $45+ of credit. The most I ever got was $44 with GCU included.

I'm sorry to hear that. For this reason, I put my preorder receipt directly on top of my folded $10 coupon so I won't forget it tomorrow.

I realized it while I was halfway there, and it was already like 11:50 so I didnt want to turn around and get there late.

 

I actually did preorder two call of duties and only picked up one last night so I could still go buy the other one and use the coupon, then return that call of duty with the other receipt from last night but I used a gift card partitally on that order so I am only getting $30 back + $20 gift card.

 

Its just to much of a headache, add the fact that I have to pay a $1.50 bridge toll just to get to bestbuy so that $10 is more like $8.50........

With the Day One edition out today, can you still preorder CoD AW at the store?  Is it possible to preorder and pick it up right away still?  

 

Can't do it online, so I'm assuming not.  Oh well, lesson learned, don't forget to preorder for that extra $10.

I just went to BB to pick up COD.  They had a pile of what looked like AC; Unity bundles for $349.99.  It was in the front of the store and had a sale sign on it.

Those were probably the without-Kinect bundles, which are priced at $349.99.
