I'll probably take the Peach amiibo as filler. It's on sale and with GCU it's only $8.  I'd rather spend the extra 3 bucks for something I'd like than a flash drive or bluray I know I'll never use but to each their own. :)

I went with the Poochy Amiibo

While it doesnt work on psn cards, etc

It does add to your $100 total, so if u got two games at like $96, you can just add a $10 psn card and it will prorate the discount

Just tried it and it works. Better than buying something for $5 you don't really need

Just redid all three of my orders with this instead of amiibos. Thank you!

I renewed my GCU when I bought my BOTW special edition, and it worked on the SE, but now I've got games in my cart and it's not applying to them.

 

Told myself I didn't need GCU again because I didn't want to deal with Best Buy any more, and lo and behold I buy the membership and it won't even work.

Damn, hit this pretty hard last time, but was looking for a reason to get Tales of Berseria.

 

ToB + Yooka-Laylee + Rime = $103

I want to get Mario Kart, but I don't know what else to get with it. I was thinking Ghost Recon Wildlands, but something tells me its either getting delayed, or won't be as good for $40. I'm also considering Mario Sports Superstar, but that still leaves me with $21 to kill.

 

I really don't want to pre-order something like RDR2 though, because there's no definitive release date, so I could end up waiting another year for that to be available.

Thought about using this on Mafia III, Watch Dogs 2 and CoD: IW plus a $10 card.  Totals at $85 but honestly I can wait on those games to hit $30 and below.

If GCU is renewed with games in the cart, it will apply to those games being bought along with it, but after that, it can take up to 24 hours for it to apply to the account and start working on future purchases. Did you only just recently renew it?

I liked Mafia III well enough, but I'd say wait for $20 or less on it, even still. Watch Dogs 2, I paid $70 at launch for the gold edition and have no regrets. It's one of my favorite games of last year.

Thanks, OP.  And thanks to the CAGs that pointed out that some lapsed Best Buy customers were being emailed $10 gift codes.  ...And thanks to the CAG that pointed out download codes may not themselves get discounted, but proportional savings is still applied to the rest of the order.

 

Made out pretty well for a late Saturday night, thanks to the tips from the CAG Community.  :)

I'm having a really hard time getting myself to jump on this. All of the games I'm interested in are either A) not available for shipping, B) available for cheaper elsewhere, even with the discount, and/or C) something that I fully expect to drop in price by the time I would ever get around to playing it. Hopefully this deal will stay a recurring thing, but for now I think I'll have to pass.

 

If only it was a straight 25% off $100 or more. Now that would be something I could take advantage of.

Xenoblade 2? Somehow I missed that part of the announcement. Take all my money, Nintendo/Monolith Soft. Zelda and Xenoblade 2 it is.

Full amount has to be paid with visa check out


Forgot about that. I may get them anyway. Was waiting on $99.99 but $104.99 isn't bad.

How would you go about applying the $10 off any purchase email from BBY.?

I have no idea what the market is for storage cards, but for those of you trying to pre-ordering a Switch game and don't know what else to get to reach $100 I also bought this 128gb microsdxc since its on sale for $59.99 right now. Again I have no idea of this is a good deal (supposedly half off), but I do know it's supposed to be compatible with the Switch so I just grabbed it. Just a suggestion....

I had an order of two games and a $10 psn card and it only showed $24 off. So I threw a charger cord in there. Any one else have that happen?

It is because the psn card doesn't qualify to get the discount, but still triggers the promo for spending $100.  Therefore, you get the discounts for the two games, but just not on the $10 psn card.

Good suggestion but I did a quick check on Amazon and see a few 128gb micro SD cards for 40-45 bucks, including the same one

Went ahead and grabbed Zelda Wii U, Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition and Dr. Strange steelbook with this deal.  Tempted to do one for Switch games but it could be a hassle down the road if Mario Odyssey gets delayed or gets some kind of preorder bonus.

Switch: Zelda Breath of the Wild 

Switch: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Made three orders so far. I normally don't like ordering games that are far off and dont have set release dates, but this is the cheapest way to get nintendo games at release. Hopefully, the joycons are up for pre-order before this deal dies. 

 

Also had to cancel my Red Dead Redemption 2 order from the last Visa promo since I paired it up with Dragon Quest Heroes 2, but decided to get it on the Switch now. Tried re-pairing RDR2 with Death Stranding, but its no longer eligible for pre order lol. Don't know what else I can pair it up with.

Cancelled the preorder I put the free $10 credit on. Then reordered again with another preorder and a 2 year extension to my gcu account. Got my extension for $15 and still ended up paying less for the game then the original order.

The $10 credit does go back on the gift card for those that already used it and are worried you wont get it back. It takes about 5mins to show up.
