Just received this handout today at Best Buy during the amiibo event that was held at several store locations. Just thought I'd share this with everyone since the coupon was not unique from what everyone else was given today so it should work for anyone. -Update- The coupon has been working for everyone so far at stores that did not participate in the event. bhn84X1.jpg

FYI, I had a coupon like this some months ago, and it completely overrode any GCU discount.

That's disheartening.  If I get a hold of the coupon and try to use it and it doesn't stack, I'm going to try to get them to stack it...

It stacked for me today (I used it at a Best Buy where the event was taking place), but it not maximize the discount (probably the order that they scanned the stuff).  I bought Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D today. It was originally $29.99. Coupon dropped it to $25 and GCU brought it to $19.99  :bouncy:

 

Also the coupon is only good until 3/14. I'll be using it for Codename S.T.E.A.M. on Friday (they didn't take mine).

Can anyone confirm that they won't work at other stores? And also think they will scan from your phone screen? I have like 8 best buy's closer to me than the store that participated.

I'd so get Toad for Wii U if mine has it.  Maybe I'll go in a bit.

Boo, would have passed on my GS pre-order for Codename Steam if that was the case. Figured it was too good to be true

because my best buy is slow when it comes to stocking games on release day, at least nintendo games. went to go pick up nes remix and kirby rainbow curse on release day and they didnt have it on the shelf. didnt have it in the back either despite the website saying it was in stock. came back on the following saturday and sunday to check, but they didnt have it. they usually have them on the shelf by monday though.

My store had a cardboard mm display that had some mh4 on it this week. Maybe your store had something like this.

So is there any other way to get one of these coupons other than at a specific store during a specific window?  Will Best Buy be OK if I print this out myself?

Yes unless they nuked it already. Just print it off and make sure they scan your membership id first, then the game, then the coupon last.

It has to be printed, can't use the phone? They should be able to either scan it from a phone or enter the number.

I used my phone and it was at a non participating Best Buy.  Just don't mention the coupon or ask if they are participating.   Showed them the image from this post and they scanned it and GCU both stacked. 

 

Good Luck everyone! Don't give them a reason to investigate aka don't call ahead.

I just used this on my phone at a non-participating store without issue. Just give your number, get your GCU discount, then add in that you have a coupon. She scanned it in my phone, and it went off without a hitch. I'll be going back for Majora's Mask in Tuesday, and then Project Steam on its release day. $27 new is as good as these will get for a while.

The coupon mentions one coupon redemption per customer, is this a strict limit?  Has anyone used the coupon twice with the same MBB account?
