  • 20% discount off new physical video games (excludes pre-owned video game software and digital gaming). Benefit does not combine with promotions advertised in Best Buy's Thanksgiving Day physical ad or expanded digital ad.

Okay here is a question I bought my GCU 3 years ago when it started and then renewed last November. I used it all 3 times on Black Friday pricing. I get that they changed it this summer but they open themselves up to a class action lawsuit that they would never win if those who bought it before the announced change are not able to use it. The reason being is they can not alter the use of an item already purchased, because by doing this it is diminishing the value of the purchased item.

From their terms and conditions. Good luck.

If it was a contract you would be correct, but this is not a contract. it is a service hence the existence of a Terms of Service. And it clearly states they can change, modify, or cancel GCU any time they want. You can't see them for this change.

Perhaps if they drastically changed it or get rid of it there can be grounds for some kind of compensation, but I am unsure if they are legally obligated to do so because again the ToS says they can cancel it at any time.

The TOS is exactly why everyone who built up like 5-10 years worth of GCU a year or so back when it was on sale for 20 or 10 or whatever it was, was so idiodic because there is no promise that it will be around or Best Buy will still even be around for that matter.

I applaud the OP for not posting this in the Video Game Deals section as several others have posted in the past.

Mines just recently expired and I'm wondering if I'll renew it. It still comes out good if u tend to buy new releases like right away and/or have friends that do.
