If any my BB members were waiting for early access, the only thing that really seems to be on sale is AC: Odyssey. Not sure if someone can find other items.

were none of the blurays or tv show dvd sets available for early black friday at best buy? i had 9 blurays and tv show sets in my cart and one game since yesterday waiting for the prices to drop and just now the game went down to its black friday price but none off the blurays or tv show sets dropped.

Not seeing anything having dropped on my end yet, so I'm not sure it has rolled out yet.

Dragon quest XI , monster hunter world, among some others. But some stuff on Elite sale is not available at BF prices now for regulars. Totally not worth staying up for.

I'm sorry I just reread your post... so you're wanting to buy an X1 and then return/rebuy your PS4 and use the $50 gift card to offset the cost of said PS4?


Yes, exactly

im pretty sure i got most of the tv show sets I wanted last year on the regular mybestbuy member early access last year. so the selection has definitely swindled since last year.

I remember early access for members always being poor. Assassin's Creed games always make the cut though Lol.

Was expecting Blu Rays to be on sale. Oh well. Got Final Fantasy 15:Royal Edition since it looks like the rest of the DLC has been cancelled. Don't wanna get too crazy cause I feel like some of these games will be at these prices in December when GCU can stack.

It doesn’t seem like Injustice 2 SE is part of the BB early access?

Same. Was more interested to see if they were going to put skyrim switch edition on sale to compete with Walmart. I would've rather just buy it now for $35 and be done looking for it lol.

Gamestop still has it in stock.


Been wanting to play this. You don't think it will go cheaper? Is it out of print?

I dont get it, Call of Duty remastered is $15 on sale at BB for early access but Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition is pretty cheap everywhere Ive seen. Am I missing something?

 

Even as one who is mildly interested in having a back-up 360 (since MS' BC list will assuredly not include a lot of lesser known games), I would never bother with Gamestop's offer. Your time/effort/money will be better spent on securing a 360 off ebay.

 

Odd to recommend spending money when purportedly I dont have to, but maybe you know something I don't. Is gamestop that unreliable or do you know specifically in regards to this deal that its not worth going for?

Has Best Buy ever allowed the $1 pickup discount during black Friday? All the early access games are only available for shipping.

Blu Rays and 4K movies were on sale yesterday with Elite access. Only thing I think that wasn’t on sale was Avengers Infinity War I’m assuming it’s listed as a door buster only thing and will only be available online once Black Friday starts.

I know I'm repeating myself, but this thread is so massive posts get eaten and I really want people to see this.

 

Physical Starlink is a massive rip-off, even at sale prices. The digital version DOES NOT REQUIRE THE TOYS, and it gives you nearly all of the ships/pilots/weapons that you would otherwise have to buy the expensive toys to get! Don't buy the physical Starlink guys!

 

DO buy the digital version, because the game is awesome - it is what No Man's Sky was supposed to have been. 

 

The Starter Packs for PS4 and Xbox One include: 
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
Controller Mount
Zenith Starship
Mason Rana 
Flamethrower Weapon 
Frost Barrage Weapon 
Shredder Weapon
 
The Starter Pack for Nintendo Switch includes:
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
Joycon Mount
Arwing Starship 
Fox McCloud and exclusive Star Fox missions
Mason Rana
Flamethrower Weapon 
Frost Barrage Weapon
Digital Zenith Starship
Digital Shredder Weapon
 
The Digital Starter Packs include: 
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
4 Starships (Zenith, Pulse, Lance, Neptune)
6 Pilots (Mason, Chase, Levi, Razor, Hunter, Judge)
12 Weapons (Shredder, Flamethrower, Frost Barrage, Levitator, Volcano, Imploder, Iron Fist, Freeze Ray Mk.2, Crusher, Shredder Mk.2, Shockwave, and Gauss Gun Mk.2) 
The Nintendo Switch Digital Starter Pack also includes pilot Fox McCloud, exclusive Star Fox missions, and the Arwing starship

 

 

And the digital deluxe version includes *everything*. You will definitely want the extras, especially the weapons. This is a massive price difference. 

 

This has been a public service announcement. :)

Does gcu work on cyber monday ? And does Best Buy usually have the same prices

Cyber Monday is a scam in about 90% of cases (this goes for all retailers, not just BB)-- the good deals are on, or over by, Black Friday, and then they turn around, raise prices from BF prices, and call it Cyber Monday.

 

BB usually brings back most of the same deals as Black Friday, but for 5-20% more... so yeah, GCU will work on CM but for MOST games (I'm sure there will be some deals) the BF non-GCU prices will still be better, or the same, as the Cyber Monday with GCU prices.

Like most stores, BB has a generous return policy this time of year and there is no number limit restrictions on BF purchases (3 copies of the same thing per order, but you can put in as many orders as you want). While I agree that most cyber Monday deals are marked up BF prices, BB has always had several big games for BF prices with GCU stacking on top.

 

TL;DR Buy everything you want on BF, but closely watch BB cyber Monday for a couple great deals and return BF purchases
