In for x1+ps4 madden. Gonna boomerang 2x preowned copies to get additional $10 off. I can get only one $10 reward cert applied to my gcu, correct even if I buy more than one copy?

Toy Soldiers: War Chest is tempting, does anyone know if this the new game with He-Man and G.I. Joe or is this a re-release of the first two? Had no idea this was coming to retail at all.

Yep, it's the new one with He-Man and G.I. Joe.  The other two armies that were announced about a month ago are Assassin's Creed and Cobra Commander.

Awesome, I'll pick this up for sure! Still a little miffed that they put in Assassin's Creed instead of an actual toy line like Thundercats or something else from the 80's, but stoked about having Joe, Cobra, and He-Man face off! It's going to be like my childhood all over again!

There is an item missing from the ad here. Halo Master Chief Collaction 500GB Xbox One system and Samsung 40" TV model 40J5200 bundled together for $499.98. It's on the back of the flier.


If I'm looking at the right TV, that retails for $430 in the first place? It's too bad that I don't need a TV or an XBox One, because I'd be all over that.

Does best buy care if the game has the case or not in a trade in? Also for the best deal ($10 pre-order rz credit, 20 trade in gc) you need to trade in Madden 15 first, get the gift card, then pre-order to get the $10 rz credit?

As a rule, they do not care, but some (very few) individual stores will enforce their own policies such as not taking disc-only. Also, in some markets, due to local pawn laws, you need to have bought the game from BB to trade it at BB.

The timing of the preorder is not important, I.e. if you already preordered there is no need to cancel (unless you preordered online, the coupon can only be used for in-store preorders). Trade the game and you will get a coupon and a gift card. You use the coupon when you pick up the game, not when you preorder. There is no requirement to use the gift card to pay for the pickup either, you can use any valid payment method(s).

No shit. I was gonna buy my kid a small TV for his birthday. I'm tempted to buy this and have a second Xbox One in the house. That TV is $430 everywhere if it's the same one...

Father of the year, plus a $70 MCC Xbox One. Seems like a good deal.

Madden 15 currently goes for $20 used at BB, would make it break even but getting the coupon if nothing else.

I might do this, go buy the used version. Of Madden 15 for PS4 with 10% GCU, then trade in and get my money back and the $10 coupon to boot.

LOL, you guys don't even realize this ad is fake. Everyone know Nintendo games don't go on-sale.

 

The Mario Party 10 is tempting, but the game reviewed SO badly, and the concepts of the gameplay are horrid. I really wish they'd done a better job, because I miss Mario Party. I'll have to continue to sit and wait on Woolly World, after the highly disappointing news that Super Mario Maker is solo-only. How they even thought that was smart is beyond me.

Many of Big N's E3 announcements had me scratching my head. Only solo play on Mario Maker (like you mentioned), a Metroid game without Samus, and--the most puzzling of all--essentially a Legend of Zelda: Three Swords game instead of Four Swords.

I can't decide whether I should wait to rebuy Mario Kart. Think it and Smash will go lower this fall?

I really doubt it. The closest you might get to cheaper would be a potential B2G1, but do those even happen with Wii U games? I guess they happen on all used games, but then you risk generic boxes and manuals, if you care about such things. If you have other games to play until then, waiting won't kill you, but I wouldn't wait if all you want is a straight-up price drop. Nintendo doesn't have the library to warrant permanent price drops.

So can I get the bumped trade-in value for my pre-order, or do I have to wait for the game to come out?

Guess this will be the time to trade in my copies of the Madden 15 Ultimate Editions that were never opened.  It's pathetic they were on the backlog and never got touched.

Gonna grab Smash Bros on Sunday. Been a while since I've played my Wii U at all, but my Fiance was asking about the game and I have friends who will like to play as well

I preorder the SSB bundle from bestbuy shortly after getting GCU, traded in the game, bought it on sale at target, trade it in during the real in tents sale of gamestop. And now my brain is fighting over picking it up again with trade in credit from 3 witcher 3's from a gamestop B2G1 tomorrow.

The Toy Soldiers:  War Chest game releases on Tuesday right?  How does Best Buy already have pre-owned versions of this game (that apparently released on 7/14)?

I'm assuming it's a placeholder.  It's only available for store pickup, but no stores around my neck of the woods, Charleston SC, New York, L.A., or San Francisco have a used PS4 copy in stock.

That's a good question.  It appears as though the links are dead now anyway, although the listing still exists.  Best Buy never makes mistakes, right?

So, $60-$10(coupon)= $50x.8 (GCU)= $40-$20(tiv) = $20. Plus $10 GC (pre-order)= net $10 bucks to upgrade? If so, why not, I'm in!

Anyone think there would be an issue trading in the Ultimate Edition of Madden instead of the regular version?  I'm wondering if I should just trade it in without the case since the disc art is the same.

How do you do a trade-in at Best Buy?  Is it done at Customer Service or at one of their registers?

On separate transactions. That's what I'm doing. I don't think you will get two $10 coupons if you trade both of em in
