Looking forward to the battle of the brands, Red v Blue 2018

 

Last year, i think blue kept more of my money. Best Buy & Wally World got most of my moneys.

 

gamestop didn't send me the rebates for the "free" x360. I returned the two x360s.

Is the Spider-man game physical or digital in the bundle? I can't seem to find an answer.

Well based on the flyer it looks to be physical, usually it will say digital code with purchase somewhere if its digital.

Correct. 

Damn, was hoping to trade my $200 Walmart PS4 to get Spiderman for almost nothing before GS starts selling their bundle

It's not the full BF ad and it's "pre" because it starts sunday. Frankly, I'd like to avoid going to any store on BF so starting early is nice to me. 

No, it would be pre-BF if it started Sunday and ended Wednesday, like all pre-BF ads do. This runs until CM which to me says that these are the BF deals and we're just starting them early like BB is doing with their early access deals, etc.

Will other stores price match the Gamestop ad since it starts well before Black Friday?  I'd love to get Astro Bot for $20 but I'd prefer not to buy from Gamestop.

YMMV I'm sure; I was thinking about trying to PM one of the controllers since it's $1 less than BB's ad on BF. Guess all we can do is try.

I called GameStop today and they are clueless. The guy didn't even know there was a 1TB Spider-Man bundle for the holiday and he didn't know if they would even have the deal at $199. If every other store is promoting it how do you not even know? This is Sony's deal, not really a store deal.

 

I am getting anxiety thinking the trade-in value for the OG PS4 is going to drop before I get the chance to box it up and take it in. If this sale starts Sunday they are going to restrict the amount of bundles if they even have them in at that point.

Is it possible to enable filtering on the games sheet in the google spreadsheet?

Request price match at Bestbuy with individual listing on GS.com rather than go by showing them the ad, (assuming price reflected automatically and not in cart or at check out), won't attract Black Friday alarm with those ill-informed reps.

Does Best Buy price match Gamestop?  It's not one of the retailers listed on their website.

This would fall under local competitor, there need to be a GS within ~20 miles of your local BBY store.

Also like to add, since this is local vs local, they will compare stores inventory for availability, not online stock.

Does anyone know if they issue the Wal-Mart gift card's for iPhone purchases right away? Lost my iPhone In a lake at the end of summer. Been waiting for the new iPhone X to come out before buying a new one. If they issue the gift cards right away, I could pick up another Xbox One X for just $100. Was already planning on picking up one of the bundles so this could save me $300. Would be a nice pick up!

I know that certain stores (like Target) can lock out gift cards for 24hrs (or until the following day) to be able to use them after issue.  Not sure of Walmart's policy, though.

Surprised we have heard nothing about SOTC and Dark Souls Remastered.

 

Otherwise, I am generally satisfied with this BF so far. Hopefully more deals will be available that were not in the ads.

That robot game probably won't be much cheaper anywhere else, right? I'll probably pick it up at Gamestop since $20 seems like a good price, and people have been raving about it.

 

Might trade in my blue DS3 for a new color, idk yet. The PS Anniversary one is the actual one suffering from natural wear and tear/shorter battery life, but definitely not trading that in at GS.

So annoyed. In my haste to Initialize my PS4 to trade it in it took fucking forever. The system tells you 1 Hour, but it took 2 Hours and I don't even have many games on it. At 1 minute left it took 4 minutes. Who programmed this shit? I blame Final Fantasy HDD Eating XV.

 

So now I never made it in time to trade the system in and tomorrow it could drop in value. It would be nice if another store had high trade in value and trying to sell it locally is not time efficient. If I knew GameStop would have their sales starting Sunday I would have had this thing ready to go.  :shame:

I have added the Gamestop Preview Black Friday sale to this spreadsheet.

 

Edit: I have added a dropbox link to the change log! You can now download the current state of the sheet at the time of this post there! There will be a final revision update to the dropbox link when we come closer to Black Friday itself!

Isn't there a quick initialize option? It's not as secure, but it should be quick.

We will see, but most ads are already up with full BF deals detailed. I see no reason why GS would hold back as they're the last out the gate.
