I thought they said that bundle was only at Target and Walmart

 

EDIT: Source

I honestly think I like the N3DS more than the N3DSXL
Though I've not played my N3DSXL in months..

To anyone who has the new white "slim" Xbone controller, is it worth the upgrade from a black Xbone controller with the 3.5mm headset jack? I only use it for PC and don't care about using it wirelessly. It would be $40 with GCU and GS gives like $26.95 cash for mine at the moment, so it would be $13 + tax to upgrade. Is that worth it?

It be available Tuesday, Just guess Best buy rather advertise the Madden one as it comes out same day as the game is probably reason why it wasn't mentioned in ad.

Does one receive the $10 pre-order bonus from BB if a game is paid completely with reward certificates?

yes, it doesn't matter how you pay for it.

 

as long as you preorder before the release date and pick it up/get it shipped within seven days of the release date.

I cant find the value for no mans sky. Any idea what it will be? Hopefully it will be 27 like other new releases. i traded overwatch and lego star wars last time a few weeks ago.

Someone stated that since it's not listed on their page, it's $0.25. So that won't change unless it's added to their system.

Can't find TIV value for Ghostbusters (newest version) either.

Wondering if Madden 17 will start with a TIV of $30, which I believe is the max for BB. I'm sure hoping it does so I can convert some of my reward certificates to giftcards plus a small flip with the bonus certificate factored in ;)

I don't think GCU applies to the controller, so it would be $50. However, I was able to price match Costco for $42.99. If they ask to see the price on the site, you will have to sign for the price to show.

Does the 50% TIV bonus stack w/ the Madden TIV (16 for 17 deal)?

 

And if it does, is there anything you can do if you've already traded in (assuming no for both)?



#44 Kyle1022  

Posted 18 August 2016 - 04:11 AM

It won't stack. The trade in promo for Madden 16 ends on August 20th and the 50% trade in bonus starts on August 21st.

This is a stupid question, but: when people like OP get early access to BB ads, do they only get access to certain sections of the ad? The reason I ask is that I'm trying to find out if BB is having any sales on Macbooks next week. Otherwise, I'll try to PM a different sale that ends before the Sunday ad comes out.

BB has a deal on Macbooks right now for today only

Does anybody know if the Madden/Xbox One S Bundle will be available during their midnight launches? I was on their forums and the "specialist" tried telling me that the system is only shipping when I pre-ordered it with a minimal deposit in store.

Was holding out a slim hope that BB would bring back the $125 trade in for the fat XB1. Oh well I guess it's not a big loss since I don't even have a 4K tv as of yet.

I am debating on picking up Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, I mean I definitely will pick up the game, but the question is do I get it now or wait for the inevitable price drop?

Without a $10 bonus from BB, it's not worth early investment when it will hit $25-35 on BF guaranteed. Keeping in mind those will be the final prices as no more GCU during that sale. I'm personally waiting.

With BF right around the corner, I'd wait for $15-20. ;)

Just saw this on yahoo that BB is doing a 50 hour sale in honor of it's 50th anniversary and apparently it begins tonight. Funny that there is no mention of it on the website or as an Elite Plus member I have not received any email. Here is to hoping we see some game deals!

 

Here is a link: http://www.macrumors...niversary-sale/

 

Also CNBC is reporting it: http://www.cnbc.com/...5977&yptr=yahoo

Even with the 50% the TiV's will still be crap... Man, it's like BB is trying to phase out of the trade in market because they used to by far be the best, now it's just sad.  I actually re-joined Gamestop because their values have been destroying BB's lately.

You must've missed the $25 base value on a handful of good-value games two weeks ago.

GS does the same thing on a regular basis though.  I'm just saying overall, GS has in every single case for me personally over the last few months, not only beaten BB's TiV's...but done so handily.

Thanks for the link. I actually just saw that they're doing their 50th anniversary sale, but I don't see it advertised anywhere on their website. Guess I'll just try the website once the sale starts.

Dang, apparently the sale is only for MBPs. I was hoping to get a Macbook 2016 model.

most of those TIVs are terrible even after the 50% bonus right now... and there will only be even lower TIVs during the bonus week

None in the ad.

Anything that comes out Tuesday will be available for purchase at the midnight launch.

GCU doesn't stack with PMs.
