Ooh, Vizio Atmos (5.1.2) soundbar is discounted. Tempting upgrade. I have the 5.1 and am very satisfied.

Black ops 4 is showing $30 after the nonexistent gcu. Yup not shopping as much at bestbuy with my gcu expired


This...except replace “as much” with “at all”. For some reason, the CAG in my does not want to spend money at best buy knowing that others with GCU are still getting 20% off. That always is the first thing that comes to mind and I decide against the purchase. I will use my 25% gtfo coupon at some point with the remainder of my reward certs and then I’m probably done shopping there altogether besides price mistakes.

Yeah, nothing too exciting this week, even with the unadvertised sale items.  Best of those may be Overcooked 2 (PS4) for $19.99?
 
There are also about 10 3DS games on sale.  Highlight is probably Mario Kart 7 for $19.99.


I thought that seeing BLOPS 4 hit $29 was a welcome sight again. I know it's the second time it has done this. Tempted again as I still have GCU for another year to pick it up at this price ($23.99)

We all agree that buying any Resident Evil game at $60 means you should have your head examined?  Right??

I'm pretty sure Best Buy already has the $30 stickers printed after the sheep take the bait.

No....? I think rewarding a publisher for releasing what looks to be one of the best horror games in years is just fine. Everything about it looks incredible so far.

A good game is worth $60. It’s up to you if you want that now or later at a cheaper price.

Really strange to actively root against a game just coz you want it cheaper. It’s a big January release so I imagine it goes 4-6 weeks before it’s first $10 off discount.

Why $30? Why not wait until something even lower like $5.     

 

If you thought about this for me than a nano second, you'd see how this is completely stupid.

I wonder if they'll reconsider or at least replace GCU with something decent after seeing less retail and website traffic. Idk why, but GCU frequently incentivised me to walk into a retail location even though I knew nothing was in the ad. It just felt good to be there knowing if I wanted to make a spontaneous gaming purchase, I'd be getting a discount.

I’m not talking about the quality of the game just how Resident Evil games hold the record for quickest price drop.

I mean good luck with that, we will see? I think Blops 4 and BF V lost value quicker than anything this year. I'm guessing it's at least 6-8 weeks before you see a $44.99 sale on this one. Guess we will find out.

To be fair those games like 6, didn’t review well thus word spread and sales dropped

7 took a few months I believe, maybe March 2017 before there was a $10-$15 discount

2 seems to have much more positive vibes going for it so idk about a sales drop post launch

Resient Evil 5 & 6 are two of the best selling games in Capcom's entire history.

I mean that’s what I heard. That they’ll replace gcu with something else. Bestbuy became my go to place for video games. It just sucks that it’s gonna be just like how it was back then, the average consumers shopping at GameStop getting ripped off.

RE2 will probably be $40 by the end of April if not earlier. I had a $50 Amazon gift card from Christmas though so I just went ahead and pre-ordered it anyway. Really anymore every game that comes out regardless of how well it sells drops in price relatively fast. The only exception to this is first-party Nintendo stuff for the most part.

 

There are so many games I have bought less than a year ago now that have hit as low as $14.99 before they've been out for a year. I really need to slow down this year and wait on more games to get cheap before I buy them

kinda offtopic but relevant, i recommend pre-ordering from target next year during their b2g1 (sometime in the fall) with a red card for a good launch discount.

i have 6 games preordered for ~ $40 each after taxes with free 2 day shipping (re 2, metro, anthem, division 2, doom, sekiro). this is actually better than gcu plus $10 rewards cert imo and you can cancel or return games individually without losing the discount.

on topic, re 2 remaster for $40 at launch seems great to me and could probably be traded in for $30 within a month for a cheap month rental.

Damn. Mods on strike? This hasn't even been stickied at the top yet and it's Tuesday. This was also on the second page. Now's probably a good time to go off topic and rage about something nonsensical

Unfortunately Cheapassgamer gets federal money and the mods are on furlough because the government shutdown. Jk

RE 2 is well worth 60 no doubt I am just poor and would rather redbox it then buy it at a later date when I have more funds. Just bought a new house and need to renovate:/

Normally I'd buy a game like RE2 at launch but with KH3 coming a few days later and likely to steal 100+ hours of my time I'll wait for a price drop later this year.

I start vacation from work on Saturday so I should have time to make a good dent in both. :D

Can you use BBY rewards certs on digital currency?  I have $10 in certs expiring soon, with nothing I want to buy
