Tyrok, do you know if GCU is supposed to work on in store clearance prices games??

I know it does for online clearance games....

I think it did when I still had it.

TCS rang up at $50.99 at mine and I put it back. Am in Colorado.
Also ordered Fallout 76 and it is the regular edition not the wastelander one. I know the dlc is free, but there is a newer release of the game that says wastelanders on the box with a different cover or slip cover. I am not sure if the patch is on the newer disc or not.

A little mad that I paid $20 for Shenmue III w/steelbook like last month or so but still a good game in my opinion, so I’m not too mad lol.

Picked up-
Evil Within 2- 7.99

Found a copy of Control Deluxe for 17.99 in the wild today at a best buy a little out of the way when I picked up my ACNH Switch, so thanks for whoever mentioned that!

Saw these as well:

Dragon Star Varnir PS4 - $24.99
Yu-no: A Girl who Chants... SW - 15.99 (this might be an old price, but I remember it being a little higher than this)

It only works on clearance games online, not in store.

Didn't see it mentioned yet, but just picked up Raiden V on Switch for $12.99

 

Also grabbed Shenmue 3 for the $7.99 deal and also picked up a copy of Just Cause 4 for PS4 for $9.99.

 

Seems like Best Buy is making room for those next/current-gen releases coming up.

Yup, all the toys in the Xbox section were moved/dropped to make room the new games. The PS section did the same but probably for PS5-only accessories because they aren't universal like Xbox and the game section is already big enough.

I don’t know how you guys are finding these clearance games. The video games sections in the stores in my area are bare bones. I’m not mad just jealous.

You sure? I picked up xenoblade (not clearance 39.99) and sushi striker (clearance 9.99) and both took off the gcu

Yes. I tried to buy Superbeat Xonic in store, which was marked as clearance, and it wouldn't take anything off. Perhaps Sushi Striker was not flagged as clearance in their POS?

When I had GCU (don't anymore) it worked on clearance games online but did not work on clearance games in store.  It worked on sale price games though.  Which may be the reason why Sushi Striker is getting the discount.  It is a clearance SKU at Best Buy but it actually has been "On sale" a couple times now for $9.99, after which it goes back up to the normal "clearance" price of $25.99 (or whatever it was).  I'm guessing the GCU is working because it is currently considered a sale price and not a clearance price.

I checked an email today from Best Buy and it had a small banner that once I clicked it added a 5 dollar cert to my account, valid today only. YMMV. I used it to knock off 5 bucks on those LOTR 4K steelbooks!

Picked up Stranded Sails (PS4) for $7.99 in store over the weekend.  Price was marked $25.99 but it scanned for $7.99 at the register.

“Click in for a chance to get up to $5,000 in reward certificates!”

The cert says its a “My Best Buy Elite Reward”. I received a $5 cert. It expires in 10 days.

I just got it this morning.  "Click in for a chance to get up to $5,000 in reward certificates!"

 

First time I've gotten one of those in quite a while.

I got the email but when I click on it, it says generating reward and then fails. I'm and elite member so wasn't sent to me by accident. I guess I'll try again later

Not an elite member, but same experience. Said details weren't available but my cert was ready. When I looked, nothing.

The one I got yesterday was different, something about the Black Friday sale. But the Cert was only valid for that day. So this is a different offer. I just clicked on it and I got both to work. Awesome!

Booted up the PC and tried from there instead of from my phone, got $5. Used it on a drive bay adapter so I can put a 2.5" SSD in my 3.5" drive bay in a month or two here. Works for me.

Thanks, I didn't realize it expires in 10 days.
