Successful haul this year...all online. Spent a lot but I be damned if I didn’t save a lot.

Best Buy (had like 50 in credit from purchases throughout the year, even more coming in from these, the BB CC brings in a lot of points plus Elite):
Wolfenstein 2 - $25
Translucent Red PS4 Controller - $39
Tekken 7 -$19
iPad (for the lil bro) - $249

Target:
COD WWII for $45 (Used Google Express for the AMEX $20 off deal to get this to $25)
Yakuza Kiwami Steebook Edition - $15

Xbox/Microsoft Store (had 105 in credit because Microsoft screwed up a refund and refunded my CC and Microsoft Account so practically got all this free):
The Surge - $24
Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Year Celebration - $20
Cuphead - $20 (not a deal, but I been wanting the game and decided to stop waiting for a price drop since it would be free anyway)
Shadow of War - $27 (physical)

GameStop:
Clear Translucent PS4 Controller - $38 (traded up the original black one for $25 and used a $5 coupon to get
this down to $8 or so before tax)
Prey - $19
Titanfall 2 - $15

Amazon:
Echo Dot + Smart Plug - $34

I did walk into Walmart Friday night for the hell of it and it was pointless. I didn’t find anything but I got most of what I wanted anyway. My backlog is so serious right now.

Oh yeah I also used Citi Price Rewind to price match AC Origins and some how they matched it to $16.99! It said it was matched at Barnes and Nobles somehow.


Is Yakuza Kiwami still on sale at Target for $15?

The website should show you local stock and do store pickup as well.

If you can't find Yakuza Kiwami at all, there should be some carts full of random inventory. I found a couple things I wanted in there. If it's not there, there might be some in a basket full of random games behind the electronics counter.

Best Buy continues to be my #1 destination for buying games. Their stores are well laid-out and transactions take no time at all. No surprise they're doing well.

I will say the 8 dollar games were missed this year. I thought that was the funnest part of last year was all of the unadvertised 8 dollar games at target.

Amazon is terrible.  All they do is price match other retailers that are actually the ones giving us deals.  They hardly have any sales of their own.

You know, the way they do sales is such a shit show. I don't know what's on sale, or when ... just a giant jumbled mess, kinda like that one drawer in your house. 

 

BB is the best experience hands down for me.

Nice haul. 

 

FF15 for $10 is amazing. Love that game. 

 

Dishonored 2 is such a fun game; beat it on first run with Clean Hands.

Go to target on Tuesday and use your 20% off store coupon on the $10 games.  Turn that dream into a reality.

I love Keurigs but can't stand the k cups. You lose a ton of money on those things when you do the math

I don't. I spend $2-$3 on a coffee cup twice a day so K cups or Nespresso cups at under $2 for me are cheaper. Ultimately the set and go convenience is worth it.

I like it! Very creative. Thank You.

 

Best Buy kept taking bumps, crashing through tables and chairs. Looks like the entire order went through.

 

Walmart got all the Toys for Tots, Disney Fashion Dolls x3 and giant stuffed animal. Online order went through no problem.

 

Gamestop, I agree. No problems online or in store.

 

Amazon went well. There's still Monday's Cybraw.

Not sure which gamestop.com you were buying from, but it was horrible for the first couple hours.  Amazon is just an imitator. Bestbuy had major site issues on the big day.  Walmart was great, but some things sold out fast.  Target wins for me.  So many unadvertised GOOD $15 games.

That's what I plan on doing.  I know the cups themselves can be pretty expensive but a reusable one where you use your own coffee is a cheaper way to go, even if you buy the good stuff.

they are always discounted at Best Buy if you are a my Best Buy rewards member. Not to mention several deals of the day where you can really make out. Almost as good a deal as GCU!!

I'm ashamed with myself for buying so much. I made a final haul post yesterday, but turns out that was only the beginning. The real final haul:

Walmart- Mario and Rabbids- 29

Rakuten- switch pro controller- 55

Amazon- Ys 8 - 40
Yakuza kiwami- 15
Assassin's creed origins-29
Life is strange BTS- 6 (glitch)
Rayman legends definitive- 19

Best buy - forza 7 - 25 (10 certs)
Yakuza 0 - 25 (5 certs)
Evil Within 2-25
Wolf 2 - 25
Knack 2- 20
Dirt 4- 25
Nioh-16
XBL-20 (6 months)

Newegg- Cuphead - 15

I was planning on getting ACO, Forza 7, and ys 8 if BB did a B2G1 next month, but the prices I paid came out within a few bucks so I went for it.

I'll put whatever rewards certs I earned this week towards Xenoblade 2, and that will do it for 2017....hopefully.

Surprisingly, I bought nothing from Best Buy this year. 

 

Just bought stuff from Walmart, Target, and Gamestop

Same. Nothing from Best Buy or Amazon. To me, Target was the clear winner. I didn't have any problems either online or in stores.

 

Of course, I would have LOVED to get that $59 PS Now deal from Amazon... (Yeah, I'm not letting it go.)

 

My kind of pillows?

Didn't you post a little while ago that you wish you had a wife? You can't have it both ways, pick one.

I have neither. But I'm in for the sugar babies, too.

 

What do we do now?

I don't know...play with our shit, I guess? I'm having a lot of fun with my $12 Deadpool purchase. So wacky and demented. Can't believe it took me 4+ years to pick it up.

I've done so but in the end the bags of coffee grinds along with the filter save me a ton of cash on coffee. Plus it's better for the environment. I can't wait till I cups are bio degradable
