Found this on reddit. Seems to be legit, just not yet announced. Figured I'd post it here knowing that many of you guys have $250 trade in credit and were debating whether to get in on the BB offer this weekend.

EDIT:  eliter1 has confirmed:

It's on their facebook page. 

https://www.facebook.com/GameStop/

Going to pick up my Elite console tomorrow, hopefully I can get the controller and they will honor this on Friday for a free game. 

 

From FB:

Get a free controller + free game when you purchase a new Xbox One 11/6-11/8! Can’t wait until then? Starting today, get a free controller when you purchase a new Xbox One. http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-one

Hmm now I do not have to worry about moving from GS to Ebay to BB, especially with no tax with trade credit in FL. Decisions...
edit: nvm GS only gives a controller. Best Buy is the Best Buy!

Double edit: nvm GS is doing the same promotion at the end of the week...back to decisions. Or better yet, back to studying haha

Have all my credit at Gamestop and will wait til Black Friday. not interested in getting another controller unless they are allowing ANY Controller with purchase. Since sales tax in Cali is so high would prefer the price of the console go down a bit then get a great black friday deal, at least I can hope

What's so special about another controller? This ain't 1997.

Is it ANY controller, or just the basic one? I already have the Titanfall and Chief ones, and I'd get the Locke one with the Halo 5 console I intend to get. I don't have anyone over to play with, so these are mostly decorative as it is. Unless you can get a painted controller, it's worthless to me.

I'd rather have the 50$ gift card from Best Buy than the 2nd controller , will pickup Fallout next week. Extra controller doesn't do much, especially considering titles I want to play co op don't have it. My brother and I spent the weekend trading off the controller on Halo 5 campaign because it doesn't support couch coop and he didn't have his console till this week thanks to the BB deal.

Here is the link associated with the promo --> http://www.gamestop....lleroffer,28zu0

 

It looks like a plain black controller, but maybe you could pay the difference and get a cooler controller?

Yup, I would much rather have the gift card as you can make that go further, especially if there are any controller deals on BF.

They really are. There are 4 people working the midnight on Thursday night at my store. This may convince some people to get the Xbox One, a free game (Call Of Duty) and a free controller.

Tom O'Connell You need to clarify the ad-- is the free game of your choosing or is it because pretty much every Xbox has a game bundled inside?

GameStop Hi Tom, 

The free game promotion starts on the 6th and will be a new game ($59.99) of your choice. We will post about that offer when it's live on the 6th. This offer is for those who cannot wait and just want a free controller with a new Xbox One.

If I use my points to buy a $50 coupon will that reduce my taxable amount by $50?  I'm looking to save every penny I can when I make this purchase.  LOL.

If I bought my xbone during the extended holiday period a couple of weeks ago when it started, would I be able to do a return/rebuy so I could at least get the free controller? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I went to Gamestop yesterday to return the Halo 5 Xbox One Bundle I picked up last week and rebuy it to get the promo. It would only take $10 off the price of the controller. And it is the regular controller, no special Halo, Camo, etc. Also, it does not work with the 1TB consoles, so that excludes the new Elite bundle.

I told the manager that they need to fix this in their system or make a manual adjustment for their customers because the ad clearly states "ANY" Xbox One console.
