#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.

I never knew there were so many experts here regarding manufacturing and distribution. Screw college. CAG threads are my new textbook.

Everyone here is has a phd in supply chain. You need to email a copy to cheapy d to sign up.

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.

#13771581 SNES Classic Discussion Thread

Posted by Confucius on 07 July 2017 - 03:29 PM

If anyone can find any NES Classics within 4 or 5 hours of Cleveland, I'll go to the TRU and get two and will sell the second at cost to whoever helps me find them.

Why would you waste 8-10 hours and gas money. This is where it just makes sense to buy from scalpels.

#13741998 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVII

Posted by Confucius on 14 June 2017 - 03:07 AM

This is cheapys site and he built it so he deserves to make money off of it. What I object to is that he does very little to give back to the people who make it awesome. There are a lot of contributors who post deals. What do they get out of it besides thanks from other people?

We have like 1 mod. We used to have like 5. And they got paid in a Xmas bonus or something. Pretty thankless job so they all quit.

Also cheapy awards died like 5 years ago?

I'm not saying what ds2u did was right.... but I understand.

#13739093 Xbox One X, Minecraft Xbox One LE Console Preorders

Posted by Confucius on 12 June 2017 - 02:46 AM

Your 500$ Xbox is going to behind your 500$ pc. Doesn't make sense.

Unless they bring some exclusive softs.

Theyve screwed up putting all their stuff on windows IMHO.

Doesn't matter. Some people like me just want plug and play.
