so these 2 promos can be combined or is there a catch?

 

  • Free $50 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of an Xbox One console
  • Free game $59.99 and under with purchase of an Xbox One console (11/6-11/8 only)

 

I am curious as well.

How can that be the tomb raider bundle? It's release dAte is nov 10

Like was said, they're doing it a week early so you can pre-load the digital game. They did it for Halo 5's LCE and console as well.

Ugh, if that stacks...man, these deals keep pushing me back a few days on trading my console to GameStop. I was going to do it tomorrow, then saw the $50 gift card and was going to go Sunday, now I see the free game on top, and I'm going to end up never doing anything instead, haha!

Any reputable dealers having deals on them right now?

Probably not. It normally gets a thread if there is.

Trading in for 250$ and then paying another 150 plus tax in order to get the 50$ gift card and a free game doesn't really sound worth it. I could just spend 100$ and get 2 games at Best Buy. Is there some kind of deal to get even more money in Best Buy credit? That's what in confused about

Yeah and what sounds like even more of a hassle is that you have to buy the Ebay gift cards at gamestop(Thats assuming they have any) then going online and using that to buy best buy credit then using that to buy an XBOX ONE) I think its just better to wait and see what Gamestop has to offer on Black Friday. I unfortunately couldn't trade in my console to best buy since its not on their list of consoles they take back(I had the Assassins Creed Unity Bundle)

Best Buy website says they will only give 160$ or something like that. No way I'd trade in to Best Buy

If you do it right, it's a pretty good deal. The price to go from a 500 GB HDD to a 1 TB one is $50 (for console purchases). The painted controllers are $5-10 more than the standard one. You get a game worth $30-$80 (depending on console and perspective), possibly multiple. You'll get about $10 in rewards for a console purchase.

 

All of this, if you just do GS->BB credit flips, rather than going the eBay gift card route. Create a GS PUR account and buy PURP for $15. Use the B2G1 coupon and flip games to Best Buy that was ($100 in high-end, new games trade for about $125 to BB). If you can get 2 coupons, $200 of that credit becomes $250 at BB, and there are enough flips close to even money (maybe a little better) to probably end up with about $300 in trade credit to Best Buy.

As an added bonus, buy the Xbox One with the gift card and game and return the Xbox One. You'll be able to keep the gift card and game for free! #spreadinthewealth

The free game and gift card will bundle with the console. Return the console and they'll likely ask for the game back at minimum, and if you don't, I could see them returning console value - cost of game.

Plain and simple, don't do this.

Hmm, i was thinking of jumping on the Gears/Rare/Ori bundle and free halo from amazon but if the free game and $50 gift card stacks best buy is a much better deal

Wonder if that means you can stack the $50 GC offer with a free game for any Xbox console purchase starting next Friday.  That's pretty good.  

This.

I have a gamestop powerup rewards account..have over 35,000 points there, thus is how I can get those two 15 dollar reward certificates to use in store only..and I also have 253 dollars in trade credit at gamestop(With the XBOX ONE trade in plus some previous trades) so if I see in advance that lets say best buy has the best black friday deal(The XBOX ONE I want is the Holiday Bundle, its 1TB, comes with some physical discs, and a new  controller) would be great if they included an extra game, maybe an additional gift card..of course it would be SO much easier if Gamestop had a deal like this, I cant imagine why they wouldnt since best buy is competition, wouldnt they want to get some business too and just match what other stores have on black friday? If not I can just go to gamestop and purchase Ebay cards(Or do they have best buy gift cards too) UGH such a hassle Im just hoping that gamestop has a super awesome black friday deal available

Tomb Raider doesn't release until Nov 10th, its possible the ad has some caveats where it only applies certain promos to the TR bundle which wouldn't be active until the following weekly ad.  Just saying, for the schemers out there.

 

But thanks for posting the ad oldgoon, you are a gentleman.  Another week of 50% bonus is awesome, wondering if I should try to finish uncharted collection this weekend, already finished syndicate today.

Like Halo, Tomb Raider Bundle comes out a week early on 11/03/2015

and is apparently a BestBuy exclusive.

OP can you please provide more clarification on these promos?

it seems odd that the free game promo starts on a friday and continues thru the start of a new week sale cycle (sunday)

  • Free $50 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of an Xbox One console
  • Free game $59.99 and under with purchase of an Xbox One console (11/6-11/8 only)
