How can you get mad at Best Buy of discontinuing a program that they lost money on


You’ll find that some people on CAG are an incredible combination of selfish and stupid. They have no sense of how the world works. Just want to complain.

It isn’t how I decide, it is law in many states and countries. Price manipulation is illegal in many places.


What in the world are you talking about.

#13997656 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by Confucius on 20 May 2018 - 06:12 PM

I frequently receive games at my store any you can see the cost right on the order. All $60 new releases cost between $45.50-$47 depending on the publisher and a flat $48 for Nintendo published Switch games. So yes there is a wee bit of profit in there but only if you pickup in store. But as soon as they have to ship any of those for online orders it's basically a wash. This is exactly why they started doing the $1 pickup discount.

There was some speculation earlier in the thread that the employee discount is worse than GCU and that is right. A new $60 game is usually $50-51 for us (aka 5% above cost) and that doesn't adjust when a game goes on sale. The cost is only updated when there is an official price drop. Just about the only things that had a better price with the discount were amiibo and stuff like the Farpoint bundle which are more "accessories" then software.


This should end the debate. But I get the feeling the diehards won’t quit.

Can people kindly STFU that games make a lot of money. They do not. End of discussion. You’re just making yourself sound silly.

There was one idiot on here that insisted games cost $5 wholesale.


#13964444 Toys"R"Us TRU YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I

Posted by Confucius on 15 March 2018 - 03:26 PM

Wouldn't expect closing stores to clearance out games -- especially since TRU is only closing a fraction of their stores. Makes far more sense to pack that stuff up and ship it to their other locations that will be staying open.

TRU isn't going to go under. They'll emerge out of bankruptcy and after they've eliminated some bad debts, they may even thrive.


And this is why you should never play market analyst at CAg.

Hmm. Buy two BF1 games, get a $50 gc. Return one game and end up with around $80 having only spent around $5 for the one game you'd keep.


Genius!!!

For anyone stupid enough to still criticize Nintendo for being cautious with manufacturing, id like to point you to the Disney infinity fiasco which caused an entire studio to shut down.

Would you rather be short of stock or lose a ton of money?

Alt accounts are assholes but unless there's a very clear indication of an alt account, regulars do need to lighten up. There's plenty of reasons someone would create an account and just not post.
