Next year when we're all getting $100 Galaxy 11s and $50 Switch Lites, you won't be complaining then!

Update on mine: The steel case is supposedly ready for in-store pickup now too, but I've yet to see any evidence of the GCU refund I asked for - other than an e-mail. I wonder if it doesn't trigger until I pick it up? That doesn't make any sense, but who knows. I'm not too worried though.

 

I would've jumped on that Target deal, but no stores in my area have it. 

 

Somehow my case got split from the game, too. The case was available for pickup almost immediately, but the game is supposed to be arriving by UPS tomorrow.

That's what happened to me when I tried to order, so I ended up just selecting both for in-store pickup since I would've had to go there anyway for the case. Both are apparently ready for pickup, but I won't be able to go until tomorrow or the weekend probably.

 

I opened a chat as I was placing the order and asked for a partial refund because GCU wasn't applying (I only asked for and received the discount I would've gotten with GCU). I got an email confirmation for the refund, but there's no other sign of it yet (it's not even showing up on my BestBuy.com order page). Do you know how long it takes for refunds to actually process? I remember it being immediate before, but maybe not.

 

Wondering if I actually have to pick up the items for the refund to trigger?

 

As usual, I'm sure I'm overthinking this for no reason.

After seeing other people successfully use the chat function to get the GCU discount to apply to these prices, I decided to give it a go after ordering several things.  It took a little more back-and-forth than I was expecting, and I had to link them to the GCU terms and conditions page posted here after getting some pushback that the sale and GCU prices shouldn't stack, but I eventually did get the discount applied to all my items.

Yeah, no one's getting trampled, stabbed or waiting in a tent a few days beforehand. Where is the human touch???

AC: Odyssey on sale, but Origins still sitting at $40.

 

So weird, usually the year before installment doesn't hold its value this well.

Also got a shipping notice for the Dragon: Marked for Death I ordered just after 1am.  Pretty excited since I've considered buying this for $30 a few times.

 

Also, got another shipping notice for my Bloodstained steel case by itself.  Hopefully it doesn't come in dented.

I need an external HDD

Do you think the WD Easystore series is any good? It’s marked down to $50 for the 1TB which is really all I want, with the $5 coupon i have its $49 total
Should I get this one or is there something better but closer in price/same but cheaper?

Thanks for any help

I’ve been using a 4TB of these for a few years and it’s been working flawlessly so far. I would recommend a larger one though, my previous drive was 1TB and it filled up quite a bit faster than I imagined it would.

thanks, well its for a specific purpose. I need to backup about 25 -50 DVDs and it’ll be more than enough. Just for an archive backup that wont be touched literally, after its finished. $48 shipped for the 1TB WD Easynote was a good deal i think, cant get a good quality brand like that for less anyway so I’m happy, even if its $5 more than a BF deal

The soundbar I was watching dropped ahead of the preview. Vizio 46" 5.1.4 was $999, sale of $699, and as of this morning there's open box excellent for shipping at ~$520. Insane reduction, hard to be responsible.

I was hoping to grab Crash Team Racing or Bloodstained at <$20. At $23.99, I’m not sure if the physical version of bloodstained is worth it. Thoughts??
