No, when you return the games, you'll get the out-of-pocket amount back. You'll lose your cyber certs.

Guys, $225 with a $25 coupon off next purchase is not the same as $200.




#13554079 Toys R Us Restock of NES Classic Edition on Sunday

If only I could get my hands on an NES classic empty shell ...  I'd put in a raspberry pi and make the same thing.

Yes they did.

:( Goodbye free GS to BB transfers. Good thing I got rid of most of my eBay GC much earlier. BTW, is the restriction on all items in the Gift Card categories or just PP Digital Gifts?

Posted by chuckywang on 06 May 2016 - 12:46 AM

Very YMMV but I price matched Forza Horizon 2 with Fry's for $12.99 each. Traded 3 in for $91.20 in credit

But it shows $39.99 online

The Redbox to Gamestop jig is still incredible. Doesn't look like the sale prices were ever changed at RB. State of Decay and Final Fantasy X/X-2 flipped for a bunch.

Yeah but that involves spending actual money to get Gamestop credit.

Could someone answer a quick BBY question?  I think I read that you can buy Gift Cards 9like to restaurants & Gas Stations) that BBY sells with Reward Zone Certificates.  Is that correct?  

 

And is it automatic or do you have to get an override? 

Automatic, but keep in mind that RZ Certs are deducted pre-tax. You're losing the tax benefit if you use them to buy gift cards. You should use BBY gift cards to buy those restaurant/gas gift cards.

I don't get why publishers don't sell digital copies of new games for $40. It will cripple the used game market.

Anyone know if a rewards certificate would stack with a b2g1 coupon?

They do but only if you know what you are doing. Gamestop dollar off coupons are applied first, then a B2G1 coupon. Say you have 3 used games that are $30 each. After the $10 coupon, these three games are now $30, $30, $20. After B2G1 coupon, the $20 game becomes free and you pay $60, essentially wasting your $10 Gamestop coupon.

 

If, on the other hand, you have three games that are $40, $30, $30. After the $10 coupon, these games are now $30, $30 $30 and after the B2G1 coupon, it totals out to $60. You get the full value of the $10.

DI 3.0 figures - $3.99 w/ GCU ($4.50 after tax) -> $6.60

Your tax rate is 12.75%?




#13237481 Gamestop 4 for $20 Preowned Games Sale 2/29-3/20

Posted by chuckywang on 07 March 2016 - 12:00 AM

Went back to GameStop on Friday for 4 more games. All complete in box:

Battlefield 4 - 360

Dead Island Riptide - 360

Final Fantasy XIII - PS3

Final Fantasy XIII-2 - PS3

Sidenote: I used a $10 off a pre-owned game coupon & since it was already 4 for $20 it only took an additional $5 off my total but w/ PUR 10% discount I still managed to get these 4 games for less than $15 after tax. Not bad.

That's cause all your games are $9.99 before promos. The $10 off 1 game preowned coupon gets taken off first, making one of your games free. Then the 4/$20 kicks in, and made the other 3 games $5 each. So you paid $15 total, $13.50 after PUR.

Game of the Year edition? The game was good, but why the heck is it getting a GOTY edition lol? That game is nowhere near GOTY of 2015.

GOTY, Definitive, Ultimate, Complete ... it's all the same thing.




#13236294 Twilight Princess HD Amiibo edition up again on Best Buy

Posted by chuckywang on 05 March 2016 - 09:26 PM

Or find someone who only wants the amiibo. Sold mine to a friend for $40. Good deal for all.

wtf who would pay $40 for that amiibo when the entire package costs $60.




#13227598 Updated: Nintendo makes official announcement. Super Mario 3D World, DKC:TF,...

Posted by chuckywang on 29 February 2016 - 10:40 PM

The two really big releases in this line-up are Ocarina of Time and Pikmin 3. Both of those games have been out-of-print for some time, and are difficult and expensive to pick up on the second-hand market. (believe me, that's how I got Pikmin 3) For general Nintendo fans, this is fantastic. Now a whole bunch of harder-to-find Nintendo games will be widely available for a very reasonable price.

 

This is not so good for me. Mainly because I already have every game on that list. All the same, I'm happy for those fans who will now be able to play these games without ruining their wallet.

Ocarina of Time h as been in stock at all retailers for awhile at $39.99. I think it was only pulled cause people were running homebrew off it.
