#13513023 Best Buy Ad 11/13-11/19

Great deal!  While I know everyone is chest bumping over the KS8000, but that is significantly more expensive and for the vast majority of people you'll not notice the $$$ difference unless both were setup next to each other.  (Source, myself I was a regional manager at Tweeter Home Audio and video for 4 years when that was still a thing).

 

Good input lag, good HDR, good motion blur handling, for the money the Sony is a nice set.

#13099323 Meijer Double Trade in Value Video Games 12/06-12/12

Posted by Maynard on 14 December 2015 - 02:46 AM

I don't think we're seeing it the same way. How does Myers lose in this situation? It just doesn't make any sense. I'm trading in video games purchased at a Best Buy store for $200 credit at Meijer. Meijer did not pay for the video games that I traded in. So when they go to resell them whatever they sell them for is pure profit. And I'm not buying anything else in the store so there's no cost of good sold coming out of the store. However because I have a Best Buy gift card now I'm going to go take probably about 50 to 75 dollars in cost of good sold from Best Buy. Best Buy did not give me that $200 gift card. So now best buys breakdown is they gave me two video games for free plus a $200 gift card after I just spent $200 in their store. Meyer wins, and i win and Best Buy gives me more than what they bargained for

This promotion would not deter me from going right back into Meijer and shopping for groceries. If anything, they want me to use that gift card on another stores gift card.

Where in the ad does it say that? The start and end dates say dec 6-12.

 

 

Ok go the Fuck ahead and take it to an illinois place. I fucking dare you. Go waste your time.

 

If I say the ad starts in illinois on thursday (sorry I forgot its thursday not wednesday) then the ad starts on fucking thursday. The good news is that it will last until thursday here for the most part or be over in a shorter time span for us. It happens.

 

 

You seem upset.

 

 

Ugh, illinois is in a thursday market. Which means that the ad for us starts on thursday. Last time they ran this, it said it started on sunday. I went three days in a row and nothing until the ad started on thursday and then the little trade bar shit with the promo popped up. Unless they changed it now, its not going to be any different now.

 

I am not going to bother going to simply check, but feel free to do so but my advice is not to open your games until you confirm its activated even on thursday.

 

 

I can confirm it works in Illinois. Finishing up my transaction now.

So the moral of the story is that maybe sometimes things work sooner in Illinois and Liquid Metal should talk to himself in a mirror first to see if it's appropriate to post online.  Good rule of thumb is if you feel silly saying it to yourself in a mirror you probably shouldn't post it online where it's open to interpretation how psycho you may be.  Remember, before you respond, mirror talk, then post.

 

Do they give you a Meijer Gift card?  I notice a lot of you are buying Visa/BB gift cards...  I'm going to wait for Santabucks and get those sweet sweet Lego sets and WIN Christmas for the kids.

Welp, doing this today and going to get my kids the lego's they want for christmas for a fraction of the actual cost.

 

Using BB B2G1, it comes to $96 with GCU, trade in 3 BLOPSIII for $180 = $84 in profit.

 

holy.

 

shit.

Let's see how bad (or good) is this.

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry for big image, Free Descent Underground: http://na.alienwarea...ss-key-giveaway
 

I've had mine for a couple months now and I love it.  The first thing you should do is not think of it as a replacement for dual stick controllers because it's not, it's a KB/M in controller form.  There's a good amount of people making configs over at GAF and that's where I would start.




#13006100 Steam Link & Steam Controller Available for Pre-order on Amazon

Posted by Maynard on 04 November 2015 - 04:49 PM

I'm very excited to try the Steam Link, I've been using their Home Streaming since the day it came out in beta and it works pretty damn good.  The only thing is that I use it wired on my first floor and basement from my upstairs computer, just did a simple cable drop through the wall.  On "Beautiful" streaming settings I've seen the network usage go above 600Mbps on a Gigabit connection (just desktop switch).  

 

I already have my Steam Controller that I got in October, now I think I'll dip into a $50 extension of my PC with WAY less power use compared to my laptop downstairs.  Thanks for the heads up that Amazon had these.

 

PS I've tried it wirelessly, it works well, but 1080p without compression is out of the question unless you have a VERY ideal setup with Wireless 802.11ac router.

 

PPS (EDIT) Worth noting that you should not buy a Steam Controller expecting it to be a replacement of a dual stick controller like a DS4 or XB1 controller.  It's very different and should be thought of as a KB/M replacement.  Took me about a week to get used to it, but once you 'get it' the light bulb will go off and you'll realize just how damn good the customization is.

What about Enslaved is great?  It's essentially a stripped down version of Beyond Good & Evil.

Have you actually played the game?  I don't think you have...

Now everyone can experience nostalgia and how poorly this game has aged!

Loved this game when it first came out, played it again with my buddies copy and realized "This was a lot better when it came out 14 years ago".

Wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot Western Digital.

 

Seagate highest rate of failures, AKA the *CLICK CLICK CLICK* drives.

 

You'll know when it happens to you, I'll never use them again.
