I really think they do that to create artificial hype which is pretty shady. I hope that's the case with the Silver Case bundle as well, it sold out unusually fast for anything on their site.

If you have issues with their business practices, don't buy from them.

Sad that this thread has gone quiet for over a month. 

I was at BB earlier this week and saw that the non-RC version of the Nomad model had been dropped down to $45 and the RC model was down to $129.   Might be worth looking into if anyone had been holding out on it for a while on the theoretical price drop.

And as if we didn't have enough oddities with steelbooks, we now have two (2) different Game of Thrones Season 7 steelbooks. 

One has the term "Red Egg" in its title and the product link, at $79.99:

The other one has the term "Creme Egg" in its title and product link, at $57.99:
https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6023909

No idea about the differences.   Won't know more closer to release and we see cover art. 

These are now "on sale" $49.99, $5 off the regular price of $54.99.   The image pic of the Red one is up there on the summary item page as well as the detail item page, the Cream Egg one shows on the summary page though not the larger image on the detail page.  I'd assume the same look at the Red one, though with a cream colored egg magnet. 

 

There's also a Sigil version coming of Season 7, though no pictures of it yet:

There will definitely be at least a small restock on destiny 2 ce at bestbuy. My ps4 order is about to be cancelled because they cant update the payment info, something to do with the beta code already being sent. System wont allow it. Spent over a hour trying. Im pretty sure all orders will have this problem.

 
It's because Best Buy has a $20 value assigned to the beta and once they sent it, they can't cancel the order.   It's their mistake for doing it that way, so they need to fix it.  Sucks if they can't, though they should be able to update payment info. 
 
If they can't, call BB corporate at 612-291-1000 and ask to speak with executive customer relations.  Those higher-level reps can usually fix issues the rank and file idiots can't.

Discord has a bot that sends recent deals from Reddit and CAG and stuff like that to the "deals-feed". That's how I knew it was already in stock.

Oh, from that?  I'm not on Grosbard's Discord server or Blackbeard's Discord server, the concentration of dumbasses on either one is too high per capita for my taste. 

Guess I'll just keep my ear to the ground here.

Went to my local Target to see if could score a backup copy of the Harley Quinn SB, as I wasn't sure Target would send out the right one.  My local store had six copies, so I picked up three, one for myself using a $10 off a movie Cartwheel Perk (which are ending by Sep 27th) and two more if people can't find them locally.  They were shelf-placed in front of the regular Amaray-case versions, so I can assume they share the same DPCI # in-store.

Target shipped out my Season 7 The Walking Dead steelbook, to turn the conversation to a different topic. ;)
