Now that's a good one. :)

The reason why I didn't make a brand new thread about it last Wed & only posted about it in the Weekly Ad thread last wk was coz its not for everything in store. It has to be on stuff from the Weekly Ad. Also people probably would've said its so measly or whatever just like here too. Plus its not an immediate discount just like all those times I posted about the SYWR pointsback promo from GS or BBY orders

I dunno.  It works out in my favor.  Bestbuy is less than five miles away from my office, on my route home, so I usually choose in-store pickup on anything that's not a pre-order, simply because it's quicker and easier to swing by on the way home than wait two days for it to show up via shipping.

If you buy 48ish games with GCU, you'll get one free!




If i return 47 games do i get to keep 1 free?

Glad I could help some out.

Interesting. They refused to give it to me on my last three preorders (White Day, RE7: GotY, Senran Kagura: PBS).  Eh, it's just a buck each, but it would be nice if they'd be more consistent.

It's not always going to work on preorders since stores don't get everything. White Day seems to be online only.

 

This is definitely something that's going to save them millions in shipping. ;)

Hey does that retailmenot promo work on preorders. Wanna do it for Mario odyssey


Don't think so, it works on things in their ad.

Yep, give a customer $1 off to save an average of probably $5, no brainer.

Hey Tyrok, speaking of online-only things...  This is slightly off-topic, but what does it mean exactly when something shows as "Sold Out" on the website?  Does it mean that it's just a temporary thing or that they're never, ever, ever going to get it back in again?

 

I held off on picking up the RE movies partially because they weren't that great and partially because I wanted to wait until they were all done and then just buy the box set.  But when the box set came out and they didn't include the 3D versions, I said "screw it" and figured I'll just get the 3D versions of what I can and the special Pop-Art steelbooks (a Bestbuy Exclusive) of the rest.  I have everything now except Apocalypse which is not at my store and has been showing as Sold Out on the website for months with no way to order it.  Curiously enough, a couple days ago, it went on sale for $14.99 (previously $17.99) even though there is still no way to buy it.  :(

If only my nearest best buy wasn't like 30 miles away

 

Nice deal, but i'll stick w/ amazon no-rush shipping for $1 off digital items.

This deal is like reverse cheapness...worse than reverse discrimination if you ask me.

It probably just means Sony isn't going to make any more to supply Best Buy's distributor. I believe Steelbooks have to be purchased in a certain amount and they don't expect to sell enough to justify making more. The 3 $10 ones right now are only that cheap because they are available in stores in Sony's deal section.

Thank OP, must be new I didn't see it as a option a week when I preordered Super Mario, but see it now when I tried to preorder Wolfenstein 2, $1 dollar saved, plus if BB does Midnight opening I'll be able to get it the day on Thursday. :bouncy:

It only works if you put the item for shipping in your art first and then switch to in store pickup after going to your cart.

Worked for me. Also used the retailmenot $5 back on $30+ to get Pokken Tournament.

Retailmenot site says on weekly ad items only so it should work as Mario is on there. Pokken Tournament, not so sure since it's not on there on this week's ad.

This has been going on a while. Works on dvds/bluray too.

Unless it's on your way you probably spend more in gas than you save

I always walk to bestbuy on my break at work to pick up my games anyways, so gas isnt an issue, i'm gonna be getting 5 more games the rest of the year from best buy so thats 5 dollars saved for me.

It helps a small bit, and is potentially useful if you are near one, either by work, home, or commute in between. Even though I already preordered a few games without knowing this little bit, I'll try it in the future.

It wont work on SenranKagura:PBS because they want to see the guy picking this up lolololol

Useful to me because I usually do in-store pickup for a completely non-CAG reason: so the delivery of a game isn’t in my wife’s view to see just how many games I buy. ;)

o_O? If that were the case, they'd want it to work so people would have to go to the store and pick it up rather than just having it shipped...

Hah! I have it shipped to me for the same reason. If I had to go to Bestbuy to pick it up, my girlfriend would wonder why I'm getting home so late. Instead I have my games shipped to my mom's house and swing by there to pick them up since it's on the way. :)

Lol, I'm just imagining your wife worrying you are having an affair on your 12th trip to Best Buy and then you sobbing, "It's only video games!". Just made me laugh.

Awesome, I had no idea, and I pickup all my games as well. Good for new purchases, amazing for those $16-20 w/ gcu deals.
