I wonder if the Starting at $15 means Mirror's Edge Catalyst will be $15 USED.  That would make more sense at least.

Not a mistake, just slimey way of advertising.

You don't know that. They didn't do that with the other games. Could be a legit mistake.

That's like putting a Honda Civic next to a BMW M4 and putting a sign above them both saying "ONLY $21,999" then you walk up and it's like "cars start at $21,999, but the M4 is $63,999"

I'm disappointed by the lack of tents on sale here.

Mirrors Edge will NOT be 14.99. Read the ad again. it says STARTING at 14.99 (which will be Mad Max). 

 

States savings of UP TO 20 dollars off. Mirrors edge will be 39.99 (20 dollars off its regular price of 59.99)

 

edit: HOWEVER, maybe a price match opportunity for Best Buy / Target...

 

It was $35 2 weeks ago at BB before GCU, I think $40 will be the regular sale price soon.

Kind of is a mistake, since it does list it as $14.99 then beneath it says "Starting At"

That mirrors edge pricing is totally misleading and should be illegal.

You can't put a $2 candy bar next to a $600 TV in the best buy ad and say that these items are $2.

what is so exciting about the 20% bonus trade-in?

most games already dropped in value

peanuts +20% = more peanuts

No one knows. It can be 10% pur and 10% pur day bonus. Gamestop loves to play with the wording.

Can't we get anther 20% for pre ordering no man's sky? So 40% trade in bump and the 20% off retailmenot coupon with some games that are guaranteed $25 tiv base until 8/14 so should be able to do some damage.

If you are only flipping one game for $3 you are doing it wrong in the first place...

It all adds up for good profit. I'm up $700 this year so far and that's after buying all of these expensive CEs.

I know it's been a dumpster fire and $20 or cheaper will become the norm really soon for it but I am intrigued with Battleborn for $20.

As I said, in some states they will be forced to honor it unless they print/post a retraction.

However this is not all states, and can be considered bait and switch.

It's a fun arcadey shooter.

I loved it for the over 100 of hours I put in.

Yeah, that Mirrors Edge price is misleading. It'll ring up $39.99.

GS is the KING of misleading. 

 

I remember when I bought Dark Souls III they said it would come with a strategy guide, and in the image, they should a hardcover guide. 

 

Nope. Turns out I get some code to download a "lite" version of the strategy guide which was just a PDF that was a few pages long. I told them it was misleading; they just shrugged their shoulders. I wasn't expecting the damn moon, just acknowledgment that their advertisement was misleading. 

 

Answer to your burning question: 

 

WHY DID YOU BUY IT AT GAMESTOP AND NOT BEST BUY WITH GCU? 

Gift card.

Back in 2014 GS had a Knack for only $19.99 pro members sale. I printed the page and took it to BB and matched it there. Hoping to repeat that with Mirrors Edge this weekend

ha I remember when they first started giving out digital items. Pre ordered the darkness and made it seem like you got a 2k darkling figure with a pre order. Ended up being a digital darkling, basically just a new skin. I forgot the exact wording but it didn't mention it was physical or digital just something along the lines of pre order and get a free darkling.

Going to attempt a PM for Mirror's Edge. Worth a try. 

 

The other games don't seem to be great prices though. Not much of a sale but at least they are trying.

 

EDIT: Looks like they changed it to reflect "Save up to $20"

Looks like they changed the add to say 10% additional credit with trade in. So it's 20 with the 10% from PRO + 10%.

the new humble bundle has a "starter skin pack" with it, which to me means it'll be free pretty soon
