#14132503 Best Buy Ad 2/17-2/23: Free Steelbook with Pokémon: Let's Go

Posted by TheBigHouse on 19 February 2019 - 12:06 AM

Just got an email that the steelbook shipped!

Same - was half expecting a cancellation at this point since delivery day is tomorrow, but they can through on that .99 price.

#14110207 Playstation Classic $35.99 Target Cartwheel YMMV

Posted by TheBigHouse on 26 December 2018 - 03:20 PM

Target does this often. Regular price in store plus cartwheel discount to match their online price. Extremely YMMV to get them to price match the online price and allow cartwheel discount on top of that, as it’s against their cartwheel policy.

#14069540 25% off one game with gcu expiring - Best Buy

Posted by TheBigHouse on 23 October 2018 - 04:16 PM

As a reminder/warning, if your GCU is expiring and you’re planning to lock in a bunch of preorders at GCU price - do not wait until the last few days. My GCU stopped working 2-3 days early online, and all customer service or the dudes running the forums would give me was a “sorry, nothing we can do”

#13998320 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by TheBigHouse on 22 May 2018 - 01:19 AM

Bottom line, they wouldn't eliminate something that was working for them. For all the people whining oh my God they're going to be sorry, missing all MY business.. No. No, they're clearly not.

This. For all those predicting Best Buy’s demise or posting how much this is gonna hurt their business, I urge you to read their first quarter financial report being released on Thursday. Spoiler Alert: they’ll be fine without you.

Is Stranger Things 4K on sale too by any chance?

The ad is a little ambiguous, it states “Blu-Ray” but the picture shown in the ad is the 4K version.

All these people want Disgaea so bad just for it to sit in their backlog.

True. If it was just $5 more, interest would probably be 35% less

Posted by TheBigHouse on 23 November 2017 - 06:38 AM

This could’ve all been avoided by having all of these items available in the early access sales, even if they held some of the stock back.

Death, taxes, and Gamestop’s website crashing whenever more than 50 people are on it at once. Shameful for a retailer of this size to still have such a shit website.

I have never had so much trouble embedding a fucking YouTube video before. I can't get it to work.

No need to embed - I knew what it was without even clicking on it. Well played!

#13717112 Official Collector's Edition Compilation VII 2017 Update!

Posted by TheBigHouse on 16 May 2017 - 11:25 PM

I'm mad as Fuck. I closed out my chase freedom card because they charged me interest after I paid off my balance in full before the next billing cycle. Forgot that I used that card to preorder Fire Emblem, so instead of sending me an e-mail asking me to update my billing info they just cancelled my order. Now I am fucked. I hate gamestop.

They sent out emails on the 8th telling everyone who preordered to check and make sure your billing info was correct
