I have bought 3 plain editions GTA 5’s for PS4. 1 for me and 2 others as gifts earlier this year. I am thinking about trading in my plain GTA 5 for $12.01 with my GCU trade in bonus. Can I buy GTA 5 Premium Online Edition with my GCU and not getting banned? I know you are limited to 3 copies per year with GCU but I can’t remember how it works with other editions. Also could I buy it at full price in store/online without My Best Buy account and add the receipt later online?

Any other edition counts. A goty Edition is a different story tho.

I heard a rumor that Mall of America was shutting down entirely so maybe that’s why?

If Pastamania couldn't make it there, what hope did any other store have?

Thanks for the info. I will trade in my copy of GTA 5 then buy the premium online edition using that gift card and another gift card I got for my birthday in store without My Best Buy account. I won’t even link the receipt to afterwards just to be safe. I already have Elite membership for this year and next year along with GCU until the end of October.

I am sure it has an embargo. Not sure when the embargo is up, but I have little faith in the game after all the delays. My wife wants to play it though, so I'll probably pick it up anyway. 

General rule: if a video game has a embargo that doesn't end until the game comes out, be very afraid

Pastamania was awful, but dammit if I didn't want to specifically go to the Mall of America as a kid to get some Hulkaroni and Cheese!

Typically, I've seen some exceptions to this. We Happy Few has been in Early Access forever now so we at least have a general idea of what the core of the game is. I know they have changed things quite a bit though, which all looks to be for the better. I personally am not very interested in playing the game, but while I have GCU I'll probably pick it up for my wife.

I'm so confused about WHF. It's a narrative driven single player game, right? Why would they have early access for a non-multiplayer game? Also, it's showing $79.99 for the Deluxe Edition, not $69.99.

Got an email about $50 bonus when spending 500 outside of best buy with credit card before 8/31.  Doesn't say a start date.  I wonder when it counts from, cause I did some stuff a few days ago.

I watched the ACG review yesterday and it really turned me off from any desire I had to play it. If my wife wants to play it, I'll buy it because that means she will have something to play while I am churning away at Dead Cells until Spider-Man is out.

The $10 discount was for preorders only.

Well, shit. Of course I didn't see this until today. I would've pulled the trigger for $56 I think.

I dunno the reviews so far have been mostly mixed. I see this game dropping in price quickly too, but then again I could be wrong and this could be a smash hit. I know a surprising amount of people who aren't big gamers that are excited about We Happy Few, my wife included.

It was nice this year using the Best Buy coupon for Madden. First time ever that The Gamers Club came off before the $10 off coupon

So it was $59.99 x .8 = $47.99 - $10 = $37.99 + tax?

Yep! They gave me a small refund because I wasn't expecting that

My offer was $100 for $2K purchases outside of Best Buy. I first got the offer in July and activated it then.

I think your counter starts after you click the Activate My Offer in the email.

Mine didn't have an activate button, so who knows
