I'm hoping that by "Elite Early Access" that means the rest of us can have at it in a few days. It sure would be nice to pick up Xenoblade at that price only to throw it in my backlog since I still haven't played the first one.

I'm guessing that since it says early access til midnight tonight hopefully the rest of us will get a chance right after.  Really hope some of these Wii U games are still in stock.

Picked up Xenoblade Chronicles X at $23.99. I've been waiting for a sale on that one.
 
If you don't already have it, Yoshi's Wooly World is really good as a couch co-op game. I play it with my brother whenever he comes over. We've completed all levels, collected all yarns, and now we're working on finding all flowers.

Yoshi's a harder game than what you'd think just by looking at it. Some of that stuff is well hidden.

Anyone know if you still get my best buy points if you use visa checkout for the $10 promo?

 

Edit: just did it and you do indeed get the points, on top of that if you have an amex they have a best buy amex offer of $25 off $250.. made the ipad pro deal even sweeter.  Ipad Pro wifi 128gb for $677.88 -$10 visa checkout promo, -$25 amex offer, -$10 reward cert, and $15 in reward points means $617 out the door.. very nice.

I am going to assume that since GCU is not working, these games will not count towards the 3 per limit?

Especially the level you unlock by collecting all 40 flowers in a world ^^;

I'm pretty sure GCU is working since the games are advertised higher than the prices in the OP. You have to be Elite to even seeasier the deal, and since most of us who are Elite also have GCU, we are seeing the price in the OP

Could be wrong, but Wii U games adv. For 30, clink the link and they are 23.99. Doesn't specificyou gcu discount though.

Really hoping star fox pops back up. My gf wants to play it, and I have a feeling it won't be much lower than that. If anyone is successful with an in store purchase, please post. Thank you.

Star Fox is back online. Got 3 Wii U games (Xeno, Yoshi, and Star Fox)  and a new Headset (Plantronics XO) for $103 with that Visa Checkout promo. Not a bad haul I guess, Thanks OP!!!

This kind of class warfare is the last thing America needs right now.

Pleeb Minus, Elite, Elite Plus, Super Awesome I Spend My Entire Check On Best Buy PLUS X

are the kind of rankings that are ruining America!

We're all the same, stop dividing us!

Just bought star fox - I know it's supposed to kinda suck but willing to try it for nostalgia sake- I'm sure I could trade it in at GameStop for about what I paid

Yeah no GCU meant some of the items I had been considering I ended up removing from my cart. I know I can get the Uncharted Collection for $20 or less this holiday. But I couldn't pass on Xenogears Chronicles X, it got under my $25 price point.

I think Star Fox Zero is the only thing for me here. If GCU applied though I would have bought at least a couple of other titles.

Well GCU should technically work since the wording is "Benefit does not combine with promotions advertised in Best Buy's Thanksgiving Day physical ad or expanded digital ad" and this is not that ad.  Defiantly some BS if they deny you based off that or change the terms again to reflect more/all promotions like this.

Consider this the "Best Buy Black Friday GCU Complainers Pre-Emptive Strike Down Expectations And False Hopes In July So We Don't Have To Deal With Our Own BS On Thanksgiving In Person" sale.

 

That title was too long to fit on their ad header.

I'd totally buy those 3 games as well (and will have to look into this Visa checkout thing) but for the first year in many I'm not Elite.  Figures.

Yes the GCU is definitely being applied prior to adding to your cart because 20% off of $29.99 is $6 ($23.99) I had 7 games in my cart but once I realized that the GCU was already applied, I removed all but 2 since I figure those ones will probably go lower at some point. Ended up just going with Star Fox Zero (for me) and Yoshi's Woolly World (for my son since he's been asking for it for a while)

Hm, GCU isn't applying to any of these. Ah you edited  your post, I see you noting that now.

I was in for a couple games but R&C was just on sale for 19.99 on Amazon Prime Day so I know it will go lower than this sale.  If GCU doesn't apply then I'll wait until it hits 19.99 normal price.  Fallout 4 will hit that eventually too and since I have over a dozen PS4 games still in the shrinkwrap, there's not much incentive if GCU doesn't apply.  Too bad.

I don't think it's working as BB is advertising.  R&C is under the link that says "14.99 or 19.99 for select Playstation 4 games".  Well, R&C is 23.99 so does that mean it's 29.99 without GCU?  If so, then it shouldn't be under that category.
