Yeah not sure why everyone's acting like this is old news. They updated the terms a couple weeks ago and didn't change anything of note. Now today they updated the terms again, this time actually changing something that definitely does matter in not applying to Black Friday sales or an extended digital ad. That's not old news, and is worth mentioning especially as big of a topic as GCU is around here.

Not old huh?

Bump, this needs to stay on the front page or be stickied I think.

 

Great 15th thread about this subject op.

I must have missed the other 14.  Thanks OP for bring this to my attention.

They can get a refund for the time paid for.

Nope.

 


Gamers Club Unlocked program may be modified or terminated by Best Buy at any time.
 
 
Gamers Club Unlocked membership is nonreturnable and nonrefundable.

 

 A couple of nice little items for people that are justifying this "because they can".  They can also cancel the whole damn thing and keep your money.  Things like that are the reason why people are wary when modifications are made to paid memberships, and why just because they gave themselves a legal out doesn't make it right.

 
People were complaining about this clogging up other thread, now they are complaining it is in a separate thread.  GCU is a "deal" and a change in the deal affects people looking for deals.  Saving money is also about when deals are altered for the worse.

Best buy is trying to save money. Look at their employees!

Glad I have been offline the last few days.  I wonder how many times this topic has had a thread.

So does this just mean that any black friday related sale games will not get the GCU discount, or does it mean that all (not on sale) game purchases during this time will not get the discount?

:/ this implies they're expecting a not so good black Friday yield which indicates the economy is about to hit the shitter before the holidays

I'm sure when they see VG sales tank over the holiday weekend this year, they'll change their tune.

I usually buy my Skylanders the Monday before Black friday since I am Elite Plus.

I wonder if they'll screw up and still give the discount for users like me.

Gaming deals on Black Friday are never as good as the rest of the year anyway. People act like the deals on Black Friday are

Spoiler
better than they actually are.

Best deal this year is still the Xbox One, Laptop, and $50 gift card bundle.

I just read the latest terms of service.  It also states that GCU can no longer be used on overcast Fridays either.  If you live in a rainy area like me, that's a pretty big bummer.

Check your email as they sent out 2 emails regarding the changes.

I wish people actually post deals instead of cluttering up the deals section with tears.

Except this wasn't in the changes the last time they sent out the e-mail.  I read them.  Maybe people got e-mails at different times and some saw the updated info.  This was news to me this afternoon.

It's there. It never said black Friday it says Thanksgiving

You're right. Sorry about that. I thought the changes were in bold so I was skimming the bolded sections.

I'm going to say it's more likely you read wrong over best buy sending you a different version of an email all their GCU customers received.

Nope. I actually read the terms and conditions, unlike you and all the other jackholes in this thread.   They weren't updated at the time.
