CAG Black Friday 2020 Spreadsheet

As soon as it went live last night. The website stated my store had 3 in stock even though I didn't actually see them in-store during the day. I figured they pulled them off the shelves. I got the email this morning stating it was cancelled. Looked on-line before the cancellation and the store was down to 2 so I thought I was ok. I got the cancellation and the store count went back to 3. I'm thinking they couldn't find it even though it's there.

 

It gets tricky when there's only one in stock. Good luck.

 

That sucks. Were you able to place a regular order for shipping? 

 

I had thoughts about placing the order for local pickup, but I knew there was only the one copy at my local store (have been keeping tabs on it for a few months). Figured it was probably safer within the first hour of the sale to just bite the bullet and have it shipped versus chancing the store pickup with that lone copy, especially since I couldn’t be sure someone else wouldn’t order it as well, and then it would come down to who got their order picked first. Plus there were a few games I ordered that weren’t normally carried at my location, so it just made sense to have everything shipped. However, when I saw your message about your copy being canceled, I got a little worried thinking that perhaps it was a rarer commodity in general. Hoping it isn’t, as I’ve been patiently waiting for the price drop, and if the availability fell through, I don’t know what recourse I would have to pick up a copy outside of eBay. Fingers crossed.

Best Buy has Trials of Mana for PS4 at $19.99 as well, which makes that the current best price.

Watch Dogs Legion PS5 at BB can be preordered for 29.99 and get a $10 reward certificate for preordering. 
 

Returning my PS4 copy and picked this up for 23.99 with GCU and $10 reward cert. Essentially 13.99. 
 

As bad as some reviews have been this seems like a no brainer.

13 Sentinels finally price matched to $29.99 at Amazon.  Be quick if you want one.

Looks like Amazon finally matched the Gamestop $16.99 price for Doom Eternal, so got an order in for the PS4 version.

 

Still waiting on them to match the $16.99 price for the PS4 version of Star Wars Squadrons (XB1 version is $16.99 though).

If you don't mind going to other retailers, bby and target are both price matching gs

Has anyone seen a sale on google play cards?

Also for people who get motion sickness for first person games, is it worse in handheld mode? I’m thinking of getting bioshock on the switch instead of playing it on my x1.

Well I’m happy for myself only game I wanted was Squadrons on XB1 got it at Bestbuy and used a 5 buck cert to drop it to $15. Also grabbed a couple more Blus so great day. Fun part now is catching a couple of those $27 Switch deals for the son at GameStop.

I think with Best Buy, if you can be patient, or its a game that you know they have a bajillion copies (ex. Last of Us Part II), then getting it shipped is probably wiser.  I have had store pickups fail more often than I would like, but they do try to make it right.  I have to pick up Rare Replay, as the warehouse wouldn't ship a copy (likely clearance sale, hah!), but I'd roll the dice for a $10 game.

That sucks. Were you able to place a regular order for shipping?

If my store had only 1 I would have had it shipped but with it saying 3 I figured I was ok. I ordered one for shipping after I got the cancellation this morning. I hope it isn't cancelled. I asked them about it in-store when I went for my p/u and they said they haven't seen it and would have to update their inventory.

It’s a visual novel with RTS elements I think? It has great reviews and is up for best narrative game for the game awards

Fyi you are going to want to get a memory card as you have to download like 40+ gigs for bioshock as the entire game isn't on the card

Outside of Nioh 2 and Borderlands 3 for $10, are there any real massive deals this year?

I never heard of it before either so looked into it. Story is supposed to be very good and the art is beautiful (Vanillaware).

 

As RPGamer246 said, it is predominantly a visual novel, so it depends if you like those or not. Personally, since I watch a lot of anime and Netflix, I like my game time to be spent more on interactive experiences than stories.

The 10% off on eShop and XB gift cards doesn't start until this coming Saturday. I checked the Sunday newspaper ad after thinking I might have misremembered.

So it looks like Target is live, but it also looks like Gamestop is as well?  Saves me having to wait until Friday morning or even 8 on Wednesday.  I can do it all after work on Wednesday.

 

....just have to hope supplies last at all locations in the area.

Apparently my local target is like this too.

This is why being Elite member at BB is worth it. I better go spend some more.

I have that monitor, it's been pretty great. My only gripe is it doesn't have an aux port of you want to hook up anything other than a PC to it, it makes audio a pain.

Oh I see, I didn't even know they had another ad for the weekend. Do you have a link to a place to read the weekend ad.?
