Title says it all. If you add a cheaper game to your cart first, then add a more expensive game, the more expensive game will get the 1/2 off discount.

I'm doing it through the app, so I don't have a link to share.

*** At the top of the page, click the "Member Mondays" banner, then scroll down to video games. (61 total. Includes MOST 1st Party Games)

Depending on what 2 games you want, Target's deal might be better. They have Mario Odyssey for $45 and Party/Splatoon 2 for $50 each, vs all are $60 at BB. If you actually want one of the budget games though, this deal is def better.

What I did! (On one order at least.). PP @$20 for my son for Christmas as Luigi's Mansion for $29 and change. I did a 2nd order where I'll be returning the cheaper game.

if you return the cheaper game, you might end up paying full price for the discounted game

Did you already receive an order confirmation?
How did they adjust it after the fact?

I'm pretty sure that's how Best Buy plays it.

I just chatted with a CS rep, explained it to him and he refunded me the difference. Otherwise I would've had to place a new order with the promo applied and returned the full price games.

Edit: I had these games pre-ordered, which is why they had to adjust it after the fact. After reading your comment again I realized this was probably what you were actually asking for!

Damn I wish it was Friday so I knew for sure what my bonus was going to be. I'll just have to wait though, that's the responsible thing to do.

That's why they allow returns!

Yeah I was tempted too, but the game didn’t make the top ten for its launch week. It’s gonna drop fast.

Wish they would have paired up some other games.

I read some reviews and it wasn’t bad. I’m expecting it won’t look as good on the switch but I need the portability these days.

I don’t know why they didn’t keep the name as Gods and Monsters though.

Like Confucius, I wanted Donkey Kong TF and that ain't part of this and neither is Mario 3D allstars. I think I've pretty much got every first party Nintendo game I want that isn't Pokemon from the Black Friday sales.

True!

... and then I remembered I had a $10 BB cert and a game-buying problem, so I rationalized the purchase. Sigh.

Thank you for the heads up; wasn't going to bother with this, but I want those Ori carts, and the collector's edition is too pricey for my taste considering the cases aren't steelbooks.

Ordered after using my $10 in rewards plus the $5 mystery coupon.

Crap, I think they’ve now fixed the glitch. I tried it with a couple random games as a test run to see if it still worked - it did - but now that I’m trying it with what I’d actually want I can’t seem to get it working again.

Cuz Monster Energy owns that word, yo! Also, SEO might not have been great with so many other things using that title.
