Someone here said you can buy BB gift cards at Safeway?

Yes you can. Just depends on the Jr. Detective you get at Safeway. There is no register block on buying other GCs.

Mine is a Randalls (part of Safeway). I don't see how any grocery guy will give a crap.

Is Safeway a region exclusive store or something? Never heard of it on the east coast.

I am firmly in the camp of the Pro not being worth the extra money.

It's larger, louder, and looks fucking ugly.

 

The difference in games is negligible unless you're on a 4K TV that supports proper HDR. 

I really don't get how it has so many diehard fans.  BF1 was the only game I played where it was pretty obvious they designed it for the Pro and made some significant sacrifices to have it run (poorly) on the OG/Slim.  For me to upgrade it'd probably cost $200 at least as well as the hassle of selling my launch system.  Outside of that 1 game every comparison video or screenshot has looked the same to me.  Especially not having a 4k tv I just don't see the point in upgrading.

Reddit is fine because all of the employees love to label with flair/out themselves. Any good vetting process will show that they're an employee.

Well, I thought that Reddit people in general were less informed and more likely to spread/abuse information. And that this was supposed to be a CAG only thing.

Wonder what this vetting process involves. But it seems to take a long time... maybe he should make someone a mod.

I don't know why GameStop employees care either. But some seem to. If your performance is based on pre-owned sales and trades, why would you willingly turn those down for no good reason?

This is great. I've used self check out at similar stores without GC blocks with great success. Nice. Amazon sells Safeway gift cards. This could be a good converter of Amazon to BB.

I don't think he's sending it out to people on Reddit, just to use as an alternative account for vetting processes. Anyone who is requesting to join the server saw it here on CAG.

 

I can see LP and higher ups telling their employees about the exploit. I don't really see grocery stores caring as much.

I just received my codes if anyone wants anything besides the Monster Hunter and PSN credit. Most of them are split up into individual codes, just PM me.

Yup. I was the treasurer back in high school for a gaming club.

And now I'm the vice president for the gaming/otaku club at my college.

For anyone that ordered games online as part of the B2G1 Free sale. For two of my orders I just got shipment confirmation although the shipment emails both only mention 2 out of the 3 games ordered in each transaction? Is this typical?

I saw 2 out of 3 ship on some of my hardware ordered over the weekend.

I just feel bad I missed out on a iPhone 7. I didn't have the foresight to grab one at all during the B2G1.


Same boat over here. Didn't see the big picture :(

I see at least one accepted member whom I have never seen post here and a lot on the supposedly not-accepted-yet list that I don't recognize. Wonder why it is not showing him (Grosbard) on the Member list and/or without a Role.

Buy the game along with it and save an extra $15. 

I was gonna buy the game and guide at gamestop but when I was doing my trades over the weekend I asked if they were getting/taking preorders on the steelbook edition of the game and they said no so I preordered the steelbook edition from Best Buy but now seeing that I can get the game and the guide with the coupon for 55 bucks plus tax....I may just have to pass on the steelbook.

Christ the Chess club was pushing it back in the day as legit. Our school made you join a club. So pick up garbage in the environmental club or sit on your ass playing chess. Might of explained why the football team was so into chess that year.;-)

- Buy both FF XII Zodiac Age and the Limited Edition strategy guide, save $15.

 

- Use the strategy guide rewards coupon to save an additional $20 (11,250 points)

 

- Chnandler_bong mentioned saving 10% by adding them together in the online cart. Maybe it will work in store? 

 

This is probably the best way to save the most money.

That 10% is apparently if you are PUR Pro.  I so rarely by OSG's from GS that I had no idea about that.  When I go to pick up my copy of the game I'm going to ask if all this shiz will stack:

 

$15 off

10% off (these two already stack)

$20 off (this is the wildcard but I'm betting it will stack)

For anyone who is holding off on getting a 4k tv I highly recommended you take a look at the TCL 55" P605/607(best buy/amazon).

 

http://www.bestbuy.c...p?skuId=5878705

 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y6FSV5Q

 

The viewing angles suck and there are some backlighting issues but it is by far the best value HDR 4k set out there. A friend of mine got one and for the money it can't be beat. I keep a 50" tv next to my computer desk for my xbox one s and will be upgrading that for one of these. 

There is a good neogaf thread on this TV, everyone seems to be saying its a pretty good deal especially at $599

http://www.neogaf.co...d.php?t=1397451

 

 

OLED (LG) or QLED (Samsung) would still be better of course but those are looking at a price point of 3-4x this TV for 55".  2018 TV models introduced at CES next year should include VRR (variable refresh rate) aka gsync/freesync for TVs and HDMI 2.1 but thats a good 9-18 months away realistically.

Do retro games work for the 70% promo. Got some old NES and SNES games that deserve to go to Gamestop hell.

An independent company contracted by GS emails you if you win one of those surveys.  

 

 

The phone calls are still a trap!!   :lol:
