Does anybody remember if GCU worked on "Early Access" deals last year. I know it doesn't work for Black Friday

Typically no. 

 

Hoping I have early access myself this year. Since my GCU expired my spending at Best Buy has dropped off a cliff, but think I am still Elite.

Also don't forget most of these games do go lower if you're willing to gamble.

2 of the last 3 years I skipped buying games at Best Buy on BF and was able to get what I wanted closer to Christmas for cheaper and GCU worked.  There is nothing I am dying to pick up this year.  A few games I would pick up if GCU works and the price is the same as BF.  Will see I guess.  Rage 2 and Wolfenstein Youngblood.  One or both are probably going to be on GPU though.  Even if not I can wait until they are cheaper.  Control another possibility but not for $30.  BL3 on XBOX One so I can play with friends.  But not on sale anyway?

 

So I will wait and see what happens between BF and Christmas.

GCU did not work with early access last year. I think it worked on cyber Monday, which was many of the same deals.

As someone whose GCU expires in the early access period this year, this saddens me. I'm running out of time.

Fallout 4 GOTY Edition, Shenmue 1&2 Launch Edition, Resident Evil 2, NIER Automata GOTY YoRHa Edition, Hitman 2, Borderlands 3, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. Not too long of a list this time around.

 

Too bad I no longer have GCU.

Looking to get a Switch. Do you guys think this will be the best price?

Its also worth noting, that if you still have GCU, Mario Tennis Aces, Zelda BOTW, and Super Mario Odyssey are all currently $35.99 right now at Best Buy's website and Splatoon 2 is $39.99. Since GCU doesn't work during BF weekend, its actually a better deal now on some of these.

Note: in store prices are probably different for the Nintendo Switch titles (they have been in the past) so buy online for store pick up.

If you are at least elite then it will work during that pre-Black Friday sale they always have.

If you can wait, I would. This bundle is supposedly the old, not-as-long-battery-life one. If you plan on playing docked more and/or need it for Christmas, though, this is probably it.

I will say, a lot of times prices have been better at BB for cyber monday if you still have GCU, since it does not work on black friday.

 

I think the last two years a few of the games ive bought were cheaper on the monday sale.

Shunmue 3, the game that releases on 11/19 is already slated to be 34 on Thanksgiving (11/28)?

 

 

Are they not doing anything for Elite/Elite Plus members this year?

0% the best price.  This is a pretty shit price honestly.

 

Last year I bought 3 switches for 220 each.  Just keep an eye out and someone will throw up a crazy offer.

I'm sure they will do early access again.

My GCU expires tomorrow and I already stacked the 25% off coupon for it ending with GCU discount on the Pokémon double pack. Goodnight sweet GCU prince 😭

I thought early access started the first of November last year?

 

I remember getting the Spiderman PS4s for 200 early in the month.

Nope.  It has always been the Monday before Black Friday (well, sometimes Sunday evening before the week of Black Friday).

GCU has never worked on Black Friday. They also won't price match other stores on Black Friday.

Tempted on Fallout 4 game of the year.. RE2 for 15, Day's gone and possibly Fallout 76 for 9.99 (is it really that bad?)

Both Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 are terrible games honestly.

I see 4 or 5 games I'll get. Wish they had better 4k stuff though, I'm only getting the shining.

Sad that the PS4 comes with digital games. Was interested before finding that out.

It's been a couple years since I've messed with Black Friday much. Does Best Buy clear out your carts when midnight hits on that thursday? It would be a lot easier to have the ten things I want all in my cart already.

Yes. If anything there's a save item feature, just use that to save you that headache and everything will be ready to add on quick notice.

This ad ain't it. Really, BB has given me no reason to stop by since my GCU expired. Makes me wish we still had Circuit City instead...

Absolutely not accurate. GCU definitely worked with BF until either 2 or 3 years ago.

Definitely gonna grab GoW (PS4) for $10.

 

I hope Borderlands 3 is also $27.99 for Xbox One.  My friends and I were waiting for BF before we threw down.

Yeah, Borderlands 3 is definitely worth it at that price. We got the deluxe editions and no regrets. Only unfortunate thing is you guys will miss most of, if not all, of the Halloween event on right now. It's a great way to get some crazy legendaries early on, and a fun event regardless.

 

Really hope they have a twisted Christmas event in store next!

Yes, and no. One year if you were quick it was up for maybe 5-10 mins before they shut it off. What typically does happen is Cyber Monday repeats all the deals and GCU works then, so it's just a matter of patience and gambling that something doesn't stay sold out, as it can happen.
