#13216968 GameStop.com: Rise of the Tomb Raider (PC/Steam) $18, Deluxe $31.49...

Posted by dafunkk12 on 23 February 2016 - 08:31 AM

GameStop.com has PC/Steam digital download codes for Rise of the Tomb Raider deeply discounted. It hasn't even been a full month since the PC version was released (Jan 28)!


Standard game $17.99 (reg $59.99)

Deluxe Edition $31.49 (reg $89.99; build your own deluxe for cheaper...) 

Season Pass $8.99 (reg $29.99)


If you do the math, buying the standard game and season pass separately comes out cheaper than buying the Deluxe Edition ($26.98 vs $31.49).


I'm preeeeety sure the Deluxe Edition doesn't have anything exclusive to it you wouldn't get if you go this route, but please correct me if I'm wrong. The Steam DLC page shows me as owning all available DLC after registering my two codes.

My Target allowed customers to buy 1 of each figure. They came out about 20min before opening to announce stock numbers so as to allow people at the back of the line an opportunity to try elsewhere. At opening,they escorted the line back to electronics to prevent skipping, and then called out as each sold out.

Of course Robin and Lucina were first to go, and then Wario. I only stick around n line since I was 23rd and knew they had 24 Jigglypuffs, but I was surprised to see that there were still about 5 left when it was my turn to check out.

I arrived at Best Buy around 8:40 and am still the only person in line. Probably because there aren't any exclusives here. For me, the siren call of GCU discount is stronger than either Ness or Greninja, it seems.


EDIT: Altamonte Springs, FL Best Buy only had 3/ea of the Lucina/Robin. Seemed like between 5 to 8 of each of the others. You'll definitely need to stand in line early at your stores to have a chance.


Went straight to Toys R Us after Best Buy, arriving at maybe 10:15 or 10:20, and wound up in line with my earlier line neighbors. They ran out of Greninja tickets right before me, but they still had a few extra figures to go around. Seems like Jigglypuff and Greninja might actually have enough stock to go around as long as you get to the respective stores by opening.

#12328449 15% off Playstation 4 ($340 PS4 after cartwheel discount plus free...

Posted by dafunkk12 on 15 December 2014 - 02:24 AM

I had two different experiences toray trying to get the Playstation TV bundle (also with varying levels of "distraction items.")


First store does things by the book, checking the price themselves on their own tablet, scanned the Cartwheel, saw the price go down a significant amount, then re-did things to scan Cartwheel first, saw the pricematch was still lower, then adjusted only to the Amazon price. I told them nevermind but I'd go ahead and get the one other item I had (freeze dried fruit, 5% off w/ Cartwheel).


At the second store, I grabbed more "distraction items" (a Transformers figure (no add'l discount) and two of the giant Capri Sun pouches (30% off w/ Cartwheel)) and headed over to guest services. For whatever reason the clerk asked me to show her the Amazon site on my phone instead of using their tablet, rang up all the stuff, rang up my Cartwheel code, and didn't seem to notice or care about the big discount. All my "distraction items" wound up only adding about two bucks to the previous PSTV-only total. Oh well, finally got my discounted PSTV.


Or for those who won't or can't jump through these hoops, it seems like Gamestop.com has brought back their $99.99 bundle w/ free $10 PSN credit promo. The site listing of course says "online-only" but last time the promo was also on the in-store flyer.

Just read on Seibertron that the newest batch of figures are now up for pre-/order on HasbroToyShop.com (http://www.hasbrotoy...=1&NPG=30&ST=NW). Looks like even Waspinator and Skids are restocked. I really should jump on them, but that they were restocked at all gives me hope that they'll actually make it to store shelves here in Florida.

Annnnnnnd... I've put a bow on the OP indicating the conclusion of the promotion.

Posted by dafunkk12 on 19 June 2014 - 06:34 PM

ALL CODES GONE! Promotion is fully concluded. There will be no "next week."


GameStop has teamed up with Xbox to give away 45,500 $5 Xbox/MS  :360: :xb1:  :pc:  credit codes every Thursday for the next four weeks. They will post a "treasure hunt" clue on their twitter @GameStop with the hashtag #XBLGoldMineAtGS to help you find a link to claim a code. Official rules at http://bit.ly/XBLGoldMineAtGS. The challenge periods will be run on these Thursdays: 6/19/2014, 6/26/2014, 7/3/2014, and 7/10/2014 from 12:00pm-11:59pm Central, while supplies last.


Note that "Xbox points" are actually just Microsoft currency and thus can be used not only on Xbox downloads but also on the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 app stores as well as on Xbox Music and Xbox Video stores (formerly Zune), which are also viewable on PC. I'm pretty sure you can't use Microsoft "Points" to pay for purchases from the Microsoft Store website or B&M locations, but feel free to correct me on that matter.

NOTE: Numerous reports of "code has already been redeemed" errors from people who were able to request a code during the first ~10min of this week's promotion, before it was prematurely shutdown. Possibility that a previous week's list of codes were initially being re-distributed, necessitating the aforementioned shutdown before re-opening.

#11508518 Sunday Ad Video Game Deals (2/2 to 2/8): TRU: Lego Marvel $19.99/$2...

Posted by dafunkk12 on 07 February 2014 - 05:18 PM

My Best Buy in Altamonte Springs couldn't find the bonus mini-fig despite three guys turning the store upside down. It's not packed in with the game nor is it a mail-in offer (but the movie ticket code is on a slip of paper inside the game case).

EDIT: Sanford, FL, had a couple figures up at the register. Sounds like they had trouble finding them this morning, too, and nor were there many.

#10993449 Sunday Ad Video Game Deals (8/18-8/24) Disney Infinity Deals and More

Posted by dafunkk12 on 18 August 2013 - 01:01 PM

Just walked out of Target. The Disney infinity lone ranger pack rang up fine, but the Cars one rang up as street dated for Oct 15 for some reason. There was nothing they could do. Hope it gets fixed soon if it's a mistake :/

Same problem at my store. They decided to just scan the Lone Rangers set in place of Cars, saying the DCPIs would be the same for inventory purposes (though, I can't confirm that, but it's not my issue as the consumer).
