TAIKO: Drum Master with Drum - The game with the drums
marked $19.99 on a monsterous table in the front saying 50% off (each item on table had a red dot sticker to signify 50% off)

snagged 2, took it to register, they had to manually drop it down to 9.99 with manager approval and then fill out some white form .....anyways awesome deal

note: original price is $19.99 at best buy w/o any discounts

YMMV , got this at my St. Pete Best Buy in FL, UPDATE: sold out at St. Pete , FL

$20 online - Sold Out

Do you know what the original price was after they scanned it, and before it was adjusted? Did it say $19.99 or $49.99, because $19.99 would still be a great deal on this.

Edit: Just saw the BB link. $14.99 after GGC is a GREAT deal!

Well someone traded in a disc only Taiko at an EB I went to, so you might want to trade it in with that bonus $5 with 5 or more games deal they have going on.

This is a great deal, anyone who's been contemplating on picking up this game should buy two sets now just to have a second pair of drums. I picked this up at EB new for $30 and another set of drums for $15. Well worth the money and fun.

Awesome! I'm gonna head over to BB soon and see if I can snag it for 15 if they have a GGC. Is not, 20 is still a good deal. I was gonna buy it for 50!

Thanks OP.

I'll get you guys a scan of my receipt soon. Working on fixing my scanner atm. But ya you should be able to find it at BB for $19.99, esp. since it shows up as 19.99 online.

Edit: nvm scanner hates me, won't scan

^link to that McDonalds coupon. I checked that same Bestbuy that Dastly went to literally 15 minutes later and they were gone. Definitely YMMV

That's a good idea. Hopefully them taking it in w/o the drum isn't YMMV.

Curses, my local BB didn't have any lying around. I'll have to order it online it were seeming.

But now the debate of how to get a second drum... Oddly enough an SA thread about his game from just before the hurricane mentioned the RedOctane (HighOctane? I forget the company's name) 3rd party drum being better, but I doubt I'll be able to dig one up easily outside of full-price online. Gah, debating 2 copies for the sake of the drum.

I just got this at my local bb too. $19.99. They did have a 50% off bin at the front of the store, but this wasn't in it.

My best buy doesn't have any copies so I'm going through the website. Fortunately, I'll be able to get a second drum from my work. It's one of the high octane ones you are talking about. Thanks for the deal.

SWEET! Thank you! Picked one up for 14.99. I bought this back at the holidays last year, but ended up returning... glad I did! :D

For those whoe may be in the CO Springs area, Chapel Hills BB had about 3 of these left. They were still marked $50 but ring up at the $20.

Nice... time to price match this one at Circuit City, and score it for around $16 after all is said and done.

Not worth it trying to drive to Clearwater before 8 pm (Best Buy closes early) when I can just drive two minutes down the road.

Just a heads up to those whose Best Buy's may be sold out... you may have scored the drums at the Tyrone Best Buy, but I scored the last copies of all their penny guides :D

I was considering getting a Redoctane drum at this price, so getting the official drum and an extra copy of the game (Which I can trade in or something) sounds even better.
