I don't think it works on ps+ card and psn card plus i think its dead already.

Lame, that's why I chose physical card instead of code.


Shame MvC:I isn't available to preorder. Having a hard time picking a second game to pair w/Yakuza.

Is anyone else getting this error and is there a work around? 


Nioh, Nier, Gravity Rush and seemingly a ton of games with solid release dates don't have them updated on the Best Buy website.  


Do I need a card that expires after 2017 or something?

Weird, tried doing Yakuza 0 preorder, PS+ card, and $10 PSN card, it only gives me a $12 discount.

This discount doesn't apply to the pre-paid cards, but does get you to the threshold. It's pro-rating effectively a '25% discount' for the only eligible item. 25% of $48 -> $12

Just pre-ordered Yakuza 0 and Tales of Berseria but I probably won't abuse it for another order so more can get in on the deal.

Tokyo Mirage SE, Paper Mario Color Splash, and whatever the hell Runbow is (as filler) for $84 pre tax.
Can't complain about that!

Aw damn, my funds from eBay become available Tuesday. I could've bought gifts for the family with the promo, oh well.

Finally put together my orders:


Mario Party Star Rush + Mario Tennis Ultra Smash + Sword Art Online Hollow Realization = $79.59



2-year GCU renewal + Dragon Quest VIII + Fate/Extella (PS4) = $80.76



Tales of Berseria + Gravity Rush 2 = $77.02



Nier Automata + Dragon Quest Heroes 2 = $77.02


..and a lone order for Touhou Genso Wanderer by itself for $42.79 because I couldn't think of anything else to pair with it :P



Those prices are great. Thanks for the heads up OP.

The only reason I have a Twitter account is to follow @videogamedeals and @CAGNewDeals so I don't miss out on deals like this.


Ended up repurchasing the order I placed yesterday for Dragon's Quest VII, Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Monster Hunter Generations and pre-ordered Dragon's Quest VIII for good measure.


Also did a second order to repurchase Mafia III, Bioshock The Collection and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Legacy edition for $93. I was going to wait on the latter but I figured $31 with tax is a decent enough price. I'll probably end up redeeming the code for Modern Warfare and then rebuying the vanilla edition.

It's a pity BB USA doesn't sell gaming chairs like BB Canada. All they have are the stupid rocker chairs, not Vertagear/DX Racer/Clutch.

Just moved my preorder for the Horizon: Zero Dawn CE from Amazon to BB. Someone else said that the discount didn't apply for them with just the H:ZD CE, but it worked fine for me. As others have mentioned it gave me $24 off instead of $25, but I'm ok with that. ;)

The Harry Potter collection steelbook set is currently on sale for $99.99, so it will be $74.99 after the discount.  Will have to return the copy I bought at $99.99.


Placed an order for that and an order for some 3DS games.


Thanks OP for the heads up.

Bless you OP. Apple Pencil stocking stuffer for 80 new

2nd order: Horizon Zero Dawn and Mass Effect Andromeda

3rd order: Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 and FF 12 Zodiac and Dragon Quest 8 3DS. Used a 10$ cert on that one

Debating a 4th order but by the time I will play Taless of Beseria and South Park I think both will have significant drops since Taless games always do and South Park is an Ubi game.

Can't bring myself to do the preorder for God of War or KH3 since I'm not convinced they will come out in the next year and if they do, probably better suited for a b2g1

You guys know Mario Maker is not included in the Buy1get1 40% off right?


Buy One, Get the Second 40% Off on select Wii U and 3DS games from Nintendo. (Excludes Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, and Mario Maker 3DS)

The second quote is for the Wii U version. The First quote doesn't care as the B1G1 applies to the first two games listed and not the latter 2.

Thanks for the heads up, I used it to preorder the Playstation Platinum headset. Been needing a new pair of wireless headphones/headset after my Playstation Gold completely fell apart.

Heck of a deal.  Used it 3 times.  Love that it shows you before checkout you're getting the discount unlike the last VC deal I did at Starbucks where it was a shot in the dark.  Saved $75 today on things I was going to be getting day 1 anyway:


Red Dead 2

South Park

Horizon Zero Dawn

Persona 5


ME Andromeda

Hugely disappointed. I had the items I wanted in my cart for a week (Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and A Link Between Worlds); the second I can go ahead and make the order with this discount it asks me about store pick-up and I find out the items I wanted are out-of-stock. I don't understand why BB defaults to store pick-up.

Thanks alot Nintendo for dragging out the switch announcements. This would have been perfect to pre order some launch games.

Pre ordered scale bound and red dead redemption 2. Couldn't use reward certificates in top of this though :(
