So do we know for sure that the iTunes discounts will be in the sale after Early Access? Or was it an error in the sales info?

All denominations are on the list but they apparently aren't part of early access . Just like the 3DS digital sale.

The prices for PS4 games aren't all that low.  I was hoping for lower.  Too bad Best buy.

I'd imagine, but I would recommend going into the store to get it otherwise they'll probably just send you a code.

Can't seem to find the discounted itunes card but they have the Ultimate Ears Blast speaker on sale. We have two of those things and they are AWESOME. Great for the outdoors or camping if you're into that.

Why are there only XB1 games?


From the front page, don’t click on the “Black Friday” banner. Scroll down just a bit and click on the video games deals.

You are correct and I am glad that you are. I kept thinking it came out this week for some reason. Glad I can save some money this weekend and pick it up next weekend when I will actually have time to play it.

If you're trying to get cash out of bby credit (or if you have a cert), you could get Paranormal Activity VR for 9.99 (7.99 gcu) and it trades in for $9 base / 10.80 elite pur, cash.  Can't find the value on the website, but does show up on gs app and i called to confirm the tiv in-store

Well nothing too exciting but I went ahead and picked up Max and the Brotherhood for $16 on the Switch.  Played the demo and though it was pretty good but I wanted a physical version so that worked.  I'm contemplating some of the 3DS games.

I've seen this report before. But have we considered that it was the GCU program and high profile with gamers that helped boost it back up? I don't think it's a coincidence that I see this increase in revenue during the same time me and other gamers start shopping there more religiously. With GCU gone, many of those customers who brought them out of the red will be gone too.

 

Someone, probably Amazon, will be ready to swoop in and revive those high spending customers. Solely thanks to GCU, I have bought a washer/dryer combo, an LG 65" 4k TV, a laptop, and some home security hardware within the last 3 years. That's over $10k. I was able to see those demoed because I was there to pick up gaming stuff. Now, I won't be there when I need my next TV or appliance.

So if Best Buy offers the lowest price on a big ticket item you want the next time you're looking to buy something, you still wouldn't go there?

  • Spend $100 on Toys and Collectibles and receive a Free $30 Best Buy Gift Card
  • Save 15% on iTunes Cards

Hmm, depending on what the fine print for "toys" is I might get in on that deal.

The iTunes deal doesn't seem to be part of the early sale yet either.


Meh, nothing for me on the games side, and my GCU expires in October so that is probably it for any "big" GCU working "sale" like this for me...

That 3ds digital sale is rather tempting. I haven't played a Pokémon game since x and y. Would ultra sun and ultra moon be worth 29.99?
There's actually a few games on that list I'm interested in. Kinda tempted to get the older Pokémon downloads for 7.49. I have never seen them that low before.

Which deals here haven't already been offered countless times before? Would you consider these "Black Friday" prices relative to last year's BF and this year's sale prices thus far? Objectively, I don't see how anyone could.

Retailers use to have "Christmas in July" sales every year. It's just a marketing ploy to try and drive up the general summer lull retailers usually see around this time. This is pretty much Best Buy's version of it. No one should expect true Black Friday pricing in an off-season sale. Some of the deals are not that bad, especially if you still have GCU.
