So if you price match a game you can still get gcu on top of it? As long as they adjust the price and not match it?

Just joined gcu last weekend finally is y I ask

I was matching Best Buy's own price, so I was looking for a price adjustment as LonelyBacteria pointed out.  You can still get GCU on top of a price adjust.

How recently did this change? The price match guarentee still states that prices should be adjusted to take gcu into account.


Last month I price-matched Bloodborne in-store (bought for $48 after GCU, was price matching to $32 w/GCU), and the guy kept trying to process the price-match and it kept giving me $39.99 as the updated price.  He couldn't understand why it wasn't including the GCU discount after I pointed out to him that the price match was not correct, but we ended up having to do a return/re-buy in order to get it to work properly.


Certainly was a hassle.

Hopefully some of these prices drop on specific days like the Steam sales.

Not really looking to get into a big argument about it but if the $5 they had it for a few weeks ago was unreasonable then you are probably on the wrong site. We all tend to spend way too much and that is a drop in the bucket. Your second reason is kind of worthless too. I've had GCU since day 1 and I've rarely found a better deal elsewhere. Selection has also never really been a problem unless you're after Vita games but I've come to terms with that limited supply across the board. Discounts like these never apply to hardware so that's nothing new. Number four doesn't really make any sense unless you only buy a couple games a year (You actually save money on nearly all games so the three $20 games I'll buy instead of one $60 actually nets the same savings-why do people not understand this??). Read my second sentence again on that one. I'll agree the DOTDs generally aren't all that great but they are enhanced with GCU and I haven't seen any of the $10 PS3 games they had yesterday for less than the $8 after GCU anywhere yet. Granted I'm not looking for most of them.


If you think you are saving more than me than you are wrong. From the lack of understanding in your post I'm guessing I probably saved more than you spent last year. Again read sentence two.


EDIT: Also probably not a good idea to say that you can save more most of the time elsewhere over GCU when GCU beats the deal in question...

But he saves more than you because he shops around which is something you apparently can't do and because you can only price match at Best Buy to the same exact price he is paying.  :roll:


Of course we're also ignoring the stacking of Best Buy's rewards program (even better if you use thier store credit card), and that many AAA titles get a $10 credit along with them.
