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)

 

Because it's just a weekend deal. What game launches on the 6th? Could be their way of offering a CoD:Black Ops 3 bundle.

If I just bought an Xbox, could I return and rebuy to get the gift card?

Probably, or you can make the fact it was lowered a week after purchase

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 really need to find this out myself.  I bought the Gears of War Bundle a couple of weeks ago (have a 45 day return policy since I'm BB Elite or whatever).  I bought it when it came with a free copy of NBA 2K16.  If you get both the game and the $50 gift card I will go back to Best Buy and ask them to re-ring the sale so I can get the $50 gift card.

I've got two quick questions about how the free game promotion will work. If I wanted to use that free game promotion towards the purchase of a game (Rock Band 4 with just the adapter for $80) A) would they let me? B) if they did let me how would they determine the remainder that I'm responsible for if I'm a GCU member? For example if the free game is worth up to $60 and Rock Band 4 is $80 there is a $20 remainder. Will they charge me the full $20 and not even consider the GCU or will they take 20% off the remainder $20 and I'd have to pay $16, or would they, ideally, take the 20% for the GCU off to start with so then Rock Band 4 is only $64 and I'd be only responsible for the $4 after the $60 free game promotion?

Additionally, if I happened to preorder Black Ops 3 would they still award me my $10 reward certificate if I chose Black Ops 3 as my free game or would I have to buy that separately in order to not lose my initial $5 reservation deposit and receive the $10 reward certificate.

It clearly states $59.99 and under, so I dont think they would let you use that towards a more expensive game.

WTF with MS putting out these console bundles before you can play the game that's included in them?

Yup. This is why I make my console purchases at Best Buy.

The game is digital, so it lets you pre-load the game before it officially launches.

Exactly.  I did just set it up a couple of days ago so I hope to just take my receipt to them and get the $50 gift card.  I actually already traded in NBA2K16 to take advantage of the 50% extra trade-in deal

Nice that the bonus is still going... but fifty percent of a turd is still half a turd.

Damn, so there seems to be only one Forza console left in my area. I really want to pick it up now to ensure I get it, do you guys think I should have any trouble doing a return/rebuy next weekend?

I would do this, but since it's the only one in stock, it's not showing as available until the 11th at my store.

$160 + 50% bonus is $240 guys. Stack 10% bonus to make it $269. You're welcome.

 

Has anyone gone through with a trade that can confirm this? It's not a matter of trust, it's a matter of I have to drive 40 miles to Best Buy and I'd rather not waste the gas.

Well there is perhaps a way. You need to find the flips from gs buy 4 for ten deal that will flip to target during their 100% promo deals. Then take the target credit and buy bayonetta at target while price matching gamestop. Take those to bb for $33 bucks each assuming it doesn't drop.

 

1. Buy flips from gs sale (4 for $10) that will flip to target

2. Buy bayonetta while price matching gs

3. Trade into bb for $33

 

You could potentially save yourself about half price depending if there are any good flips out there. I havent looked myself.

What's going on at Target that makes Bayonetta 2 flip to BB for a profit? GameStop shows it as $35, so trading it for $33 doesn't make much sense to move credit, IMO.

 

I maintain just make a dummy GS account, get a B2G1 coupon, and get three of the big-name titles for $100, then trade them for $129 at BB (since those games are going to be $43.20 each). That, or if you do a bit of searching, there are probably some good flips to BB that'll get most of your credit there without getting Target involved.

Their website has the XB1 500 listed for a 250 trade in store credit.

Where did the 30 come from?

He traded in the day before the bump to $250.  GS refused to make a full adjustment to $250, but gave him $30 for his trouble.

Ahh, GS is also supposedly a $100 bonus if you trade in any console toward an XB1 or PS4
