My GCU ends in two weeks. Best Buy just emailed me a 25% off a physical game coupon, anybody else?

Got me eye on Yakuza 0 and Kiwami 2. I already have nearly everything else I want from other sales. Although I hope Crash Team Racing goes on sale for PS4 also.

And no PS4 owner has an excuse to not have Spider-Man now.


On your second comment, yes they do. If you dont like spiderman you have no reason to own it, which is why I'm never touching it. Same with the batman games. I bought them because "they're sooo good!!".

I fell asleep the first time I played Arkham Asylum. Ended up beating it but never touching another batman game again.

That's typical when your GCU is expiring.

Make sure and grab a screenshot of it though.  I've read the webpage expires relatively quick after opening the email.

That won't work because, when the sale goes up, Elite Members have to go through a separate storefront (typically on main page) to access the deals from there.

Oh, that sucks.  Good to know.  Thanks.

So are you guys getting there way before 5? Expecting long lines? Probably stupid questions, but I've never been to a Best Buy Black Friday. I just want Shenmue 3, Judgment and Gears 5 and nothing else.

Also, about an hour before the deals go live all of the items going on sale go Out of Stock for a short while which clears them out of carts.

If all you're planning to get are games and not garbage-tier doorbuster TVs, I would just do all your shopping online.  The deals go up early and you'll be completely done before Thanksgiving has even begun.

Yeah. If you're not getting anything big, just order online. It's what I've done the last few years and I haven't missed out on anything.

Was really hoping to get Octopath this BF for $30 or lower, but it seems only BBY has it for $40.

Any deals on a PS4Pro? Looking to pick one up. Thanks


If you have a meijer near you it'll be 300 for a PS4Pro bundle.

In for replacement copies of God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete since I traded mine in at GameStop last time they got the bump.

 

And that's it.

When you say they go up early online you mean they'll go up before Thanksgiving or earlier in the day? And won't they sell out online within minutes?

Don't remember the exact time, but I want to say around Wednesday late night / Thursday AM (PST) when the prices get updated.

 

Some stuff sells out quickly, but mostly the ultra cheap $10/$15 stuff that everyone is gunning for.  The more expensive titles you listed, I don't anticipate any of those would require immediate action, but obviously earlier is safer.

I looked at my order confirmation email from last year, and it was emailed to me Wed night/Thurs morning at 12:28am. So shortly after midnight (eastern time).

This depends on the store, BUT, if I remember last year, a lot went up either a little after midnight or 3am ET on Thanksgiving day. Unfortunately, I missed that $15 Disgaea 5 for Switch deal at Best Buy, but got everything else.

Oh so you guys are saying to order them online the night before but do in store pickup not shipped?

No.  What?

 

You don't set foot in the store, you kick back at home in your underwear and click a few buttons to ship and you're done.

 

Honestly, it sounds like you're deadset on getting trampled by savages at the physical store, so I'm not going to stop you, bro.  You do you.

I have done at least the last 5 Black Fridays completely online. Going to the stores on this hellish day is so early 2000s.

No, get them shipped, I was just saying deals start different times depending on the store(Walmart, Best Buy etc.) Just figure out what you want by making bookmarks ahead of time. Then set up an alarm to remind you, and then give it about 20 mins before giving up and waiting a little later for deals to go live if they haven't already, but generally it's a little after midnight or 3am et.

No you're misunderstanding me. Warruz' post said "It depends on the store" so that's why I got confused and thought you all were saying do in store pickup. Why would it depend on the store if it's being shipped? Your local store doesn't ship it to you, it's shipped out of a warehouse. I was just clarifying because that statement was confusing, which he just now clarified. 

 

Warruz no offense but that was unnecessarily confusing. Of course we're talking about Best Buy this is a Best Buy thread.

I know Nintendo is notorious for their games not having discounts for a long time. Any chance Luigi's Mansion 3 gets a BF discount or soon after or is that too soon for a Nintendo title?

I have done at least the last 5 Black Fridays completely online. Going to the stores on this hellish day is so early 2000s.

It's really not as bad as it used to be. Especially with the stores opening at 5-6pm on Thanksgiving and so many people shopping online. It just seems like an extra busy Saturday once the line of people looking for the doorbusters dies down.

remember! the mario kart switch bundle is not worth it. it is the launch bundle with the original switch.

Can attest to this, went to Walmart around 8pm on Thanksgiving as I actually needed not Black Friday deal stuff, but had a very straightforward experience and managed to find Doom for Switch price marked wrong for $12.
