What's BB's policy on online purchase price matches? I literally ordered this 1 week ago, with GCU and a rewards cert. Worried because of GCU and cert they won't do anything to price match.


Because of the certificate you might run into trouble because they will have to refund the certificate which could take a while to get back into the system. Also if you purchased anything else on the same receipt it won't let you do it unless you return everything since it splits up the certificate across all items.

Pretty much ymmv on if it can go smoothly or not depending on how good customer service is at your BB.

I blame you guys for picking up a copy, simply because I believe this will become hard to find later on. Frickin' Pikmin 3.

Thank you for the heads up :) Had a gift card from their trade-in bonus a few weeks ago, so I picked up Warriors and 3D world both!

I want to buy it now but does anyone know if we could use the Nintendo $5 coupon online? Also, Best Buy doesn't do the GCU in store to drop it to $41 do they?

 

I would get this now since I believe this game is going out of print just as Bayoneta 2 is now. Glad I bought that game last month.

If you have someone to play with, 3d World imo.

So I got GCU a few weeks ago and bought at least $100 worth of stuff since then, but my account shows 0 points so far, what the heck?! I want to jump on this deal but if my account isn't working correctly I need to get that shiz straightened out. Hope I don't need all of my receipts, I don't usually hold on to those for too long...
help =(

EDIT: Oh it says it takes 15 days, phew. Let me check and make sure they're that old, should start reflecting this week then.

EDIT 2: Yup, was back on the 23rd. Do weekends count or is it business days? If not then it should show up tomorrow. Best case scenario with double points you get $5 for $125 in purchases?

I also see that they advertise 50% with this welcome coupon on a strategy guide. Since I can't seem to locate this searching to see if it's in stock, is there any way to use these welcome coupons online?

If you go to your online my bestbuy account, you can view your purchase history and pending points.

I believe the coupons should have been emailed to the email you used to sign up.

If you go to your online my bestbuy account, you can view your purchase history and pending points.

No I have the coupons but they're just bar codes. I'm wondering if the actual code above the bars can be used to apply the coupon online as I don't think I can find the actual guide in stores. Anyone have experience with this?

Are you guys sure this will go out of print including bayonetta 2? I want to wait for price drop around $30. Or hoping Hyrule Warriors will have a complete version cause of all those DLC.

Sorry i misread your original question, lol.

The coupons are in store only. Just an fyi, but if a store has less than 3 of an item, it will not show up on the online stock checker. It may be worth it to go in person.

Did not know that, thank you!

Now the question is if I have to print it out or if I can show it from my phone lol.

I didn't realize Bayonetta 2 was out if print since it's still available everywhere.  Guess I'll be picking it up soon since I just got a Wii U over the weekend.

Has Nintendo ever released a goty/complete game?

I wouldn't risk it. So many Wii U games are starting to disappear and sell for full retail or more. I predict these two games you mentioned will go that route too.

Ugh, not worth the hassle then for what'd be like 8 bucks or so.  Ironically I was sitting on the cert till the last minute hoping for a sale on this, bit before the cert expired, and then it went on sale lol.  Ah well, thanks for the info!

I just want to try HW...not paying $40 for something I know I'd eventually get bored of (such is Dynasty Warriors gameplay). Come on Nintendo at least give me a demo lol.

Any chance this will reach $30? I'll pay around$20 w/ gcu and that's it.

The welcoming coupon for $5 off a game? If this is an online-only sale and the coupon can only be used in stores it doesn't matter right? Correct me if I'm wrong but these games are still full price ($60) in-store so it's kind of a toss up either way tho with GCU you'd get it down to like..48-50 and with the coupon maybe $45 at best? This is no more than a $40 game to me, or is it really that good?

Especially compounded by the fact they have the retail games on the eshop, not likely to see additional print runs unless its Mario (though DK is still getting reprinted it seems).

 

Even the retail version of Wii Sports Club (which you think would be one of Nintendo's flagship titles to keep stocked in stores) disappeared so quickly (in about 6 months or so).

Really? I bought it for both the code, and to keep for later play in the collection. If it doesn't come with the code, that really sucks. Anybody else reporting the same issue? I am still waiting for mines to ship.

This has been mentioned before it was probably part of a second print run with no CN codes inside
