Best Buy E-mail 25% off any game YMMV

I didn't see this posted here but I got an e-mail on November 6 from Best Buy with the following:

 

Save 25% on any game.
Gamer's Club Unlocked has ended. But, you're still a My Best Buy member with access to exclusive deals and so much more.

 

The coupon says it lasts until May so no rush to use.

 

If you're one of the lucky that still has GCU, it combines too!  Mine expires on Monday and I'm trying to push myself a lot more digital because of it, so I went ahead and used the coupon now.  I was able to re-do my Cyberpunk 2077 pre-order so I'm now getting it for $35.99 and I'll get the $10 reward certificate when it comes out too.  

 

Seems to work on the fancy collectors editions as well.  I had thought about buying the Death Stranding collectors edition and reselling it for full price.  The before-tax price on that with both discounts was $119.99!  I just didn't want to mess with it to end up netting $25 after fees and shipping costs, etc.

It's a coupon they randomly send to people who have expiring GCU

I got mine months ago when my GPU expired. Ended up preordering that sword and shield bundle with it.

Does the gcu expiring code work on one item or entire order?

It’s the “your GCU is ending, here’s a parting gift for us canceling the best reason for purchasing games at Best Buy.” Email.

The offer DOES expire before they claim. If you click the link in the email, you have 1 chance to get the code. Once the code is shown to you the timer starts. Can’t remember how long but many people got screwed out of the discount.

Best thing to do, use it immediately on something while you still have GCU. It stacks.

Just the link to the coupon expires quickly. The coupon itself is good for a decent amount of time.

I have not purchased a game from best buy since GCU unexpired.  Judging by the stock my local store does not intend to sell games much anymore either?  They have like two columns of each system at most.

Save it/print it and use it ASAP. I got one with a long exp date when my GCU expired and after 2-3 weeks, the link no longer worked and BBY CS said they can't find any such coupon/help me.

One item, highest priced in the cart.

Showed the email to a manager in store and he said he can't help without the actual coupon. He was cool about and saw that the email did say I should get 25% off but the link in the email was dead. He called corporate (or something) and gave them my number, and BBY later called me saying they have no idea. Gave me a number to their "promotions" department who also had no idea. I just gave up after that.

I got a question.  I made a few pre-order and my gcu end tomorrow.  Will I be charge shipping if item are delivered?  If so should I change to in store pick up?

it will ship as it is now, they dont come back and add charges.  Besides BB doesnt charge for shipping over 35$ i think.
