#13605894 Best Buy: Visa Checkout $25 off $100 (expires 1/21)

Posted by TooPoor on 21 January 2017 - 02:18 AM

Again, making 3% on a credit card transaction (less their costs in processing, rewards and other expenses) and interest of varying rates won't cover 25% discounts on millions of dollars in purchases.  The other big difference here is that previously the offer ended when a certain number of transactions had been processed.  This one has been open for a week and the level of abuse is literally staggering.

I'm not a financial analyst, but from my mathematical intuition I highly doubt the "abuse" can even cause a "loss" that they would bother to put data engineers to investigate. I also would imagine this whole thing falls under the budget of "marketing promotions", which they know they need to bleed money to compete with the many other more popular alternatives.

 

They are Visa, couple million is their pocket change.

Thank you, wish I could like your post two times.

 

To me, this is a system seller. Now I can stop my daily cursing that Disgaea 5 is not on the Vita (hence I can't play it on the go).

I was going to hesitate on my AMZ preorder, now I am most definitely keeping it.

I hear the "why play portable when phones and tablets exist" argument often, but until my smartphone can play Breath of the Wild, Fire Emblem, and Mario Odyssey, I'll have to cough up the money for this.

You should get into the Vita. I suppose you havent since I never see you in the Vita thread. I am a die hard handheld gamer and the Vita has been my lifeline during my long commutes. Glad I have an alternative when I exhaust all my Vita games.

Don't hate a player (playa? I'm Asian so probably shouldn't speak black...) for saving money by having self control.

 

I will be sure to PM you to laugh in your face when I get it for a lower price in the future.

Let me know if you think A.W. Phoenix Festa is worth the import when you get to play it, if you could. Might let that game tag along my next batch of imports, which I can only afford to do once per year.

I think the Vita version looks pretty good. Just waiting on localization now....

I rushed through ($15 BF) Far Cry Primal last night, and got $25 today with the 50% + $5. The clerk insisted he had to take my $5 coupon card though, which is my only one left, a little sad about that.

I'm looking forward to playing my backlog in 2017...

And in reality, you will probably be occupied with some hot new release that you bought on impulse, and all current backlog will roll over along with the newly accumulated backlog, into 2018.

I'm 31 and haven't gotten anything from anyone in probably 12 years, so feel lucky.

Didn't know we were the same age. And my mom still thinks my gaming habit is hindering me from achieving greatness. I told her greatness awaits.

Dragonball Xenoverse 2 trades for $35.2 in Cali, might be a good idea to dump your $25 BF copy. The game's ending is very, very bland, I just finished it yesterday, if I weren't a big DBZ fan I wouldn't have finished it despite my usual habit of finishing games I start.

Too bad your mom is already booked by another CAG.

To each their own but do speak for yourself.

Myself and plenty (I hope!) other CAGs do send donations to Blackbeard every once in a while to compensate for his trouble, never has he been disrespectful to anybody here AFAIK ever since I joined the site. Least you can do is to move along while reading the forum.

I strongly encourage everyone to send a contribution to him every now and then, it sure goes a long way!

Not sure why you would direct such a comment at my post? Did you even understand what I was saying?

Tempted to pick this up at GS but don't know if I want to pay $30 for it. Pirate Curse on the Wii U was great.

I haven't played the game yet so can't offer any insight on that regard. For me it is a well priced game (plus CD freedbie) from a publisher still supporting the Vita, I'm not wealthy (surprise surprise) but I would like to let them know I appreciate their intentions and efforts on delivery.

AMZ no longer offers price adjustments, any granted request will fall under the exception category, I would not do it for under ten bucks.
