In his defense neither does the op. I assumed he was following the same format for comparison.

I did but this is CAG so we have to include all costs! Thanks for your defense :-)

I factored in the pre-order cost. Look at the effectively making the game part. I'm not doing the cost of Madden 15 because people can do math for how much they paid.

Be careful when adding up your total out of pocket expenses. An email I received from Best Buy says the tax is applied before the gift card discount is applied. So your taxes may be higher.

Got a copy of Madden 15 for Xbox one ($10 cl) but want Madden 16 for PS4... is the coupon system specific or just next-gen/last-gen?

Reward certs are deducted after other discounts, but before tax is calculated, so they lower your taxable base.

Not system specific.  I was in the same boat and got my gift card and coupon.

I see some folks talking about doing more than one transaction in order to get a couple coupons.  Is there a reason people are doing that or is it just to move credit?

I'm actually buying 2 copies to keep for myself and thinking of trading in 4x copies to move credit or buy 4 more standard edition to move in the future

No. But it's recommended if you want the $10 back in rewards.

Thanks. I preordered 2 deluxe editions.I know I can get only one $10 reward certz. I just wanted to see if it was possible to buy 2 more copies with coupons without preordering.

so i am not GCU Member. so this for me not being a member would be 30 bucks with the trade in of 15 for x1?

Yes, but you would pay $10 more because you're not a GCU member. I highly suggest you buy GCU, it's only $30 and saves you a ton of money.

I was able to snag a Madden 15 PS4 for $13 last Thursday when these deals were getting announced early in the BB thread. Pretty stoked. Traded it in today w/GCU it was $22 on the gift card and then the $10 coupon. 

 

Factor in $60 - 12 GCU discount = $48 - 32 (coupon and gift card) = $16 + $13 (price of Madden 15) = $29 +taxes and I have a $5 reward card. If I pre-order I will also get a $10 reward later. So potentially $14 for Madden 16 + taxes is an amazing deal to me.
