#14363277 Bestbuy mystery coupon

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 20 December 2020 - 01:07 AM

I bought a $1,000 TV last month and it posted 25 points to my account. To earn a $5 reward, it takes 250 points. WTF. 

Yup. I think they nerfed the points you earn at every level a while back. You pretty much need to use the credit card and buy a ridiculous amount of things in a year to not only qualify for the best level of rewards, but to earn damn near anything. To add insult to injury, they also got rid of a lot of opportunities for bonus points, and they don't let you earn on things like Apple products.




#14329130 Nintendo eShop Deals - 12/24: Holiday Sales!

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 24 September 2020 - 11:47 PM

Hades looks great, but $25 MSRP is a joke.

I mean, it was just on sale for like a week at $19.99.




#14318379 Walmart+ $98 a year free unlimited delivery, cheaper games

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 02 September 2020 - 10:11 AM

Amazon's been matching some of those lately, though.  I know I got my Resident Evil 3 preorder for $49.94, and I've seen others.

I think Amazon only matches them if Walmart.com has the price. A lot (or all) of the Nintendo games that go for $50 in store aren't given the same discount online, so Amazon won't match it.




#14198591 Turok 1 and 2 remastered - Switch - Nintendo eshop - 15/25% off each, $1...

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 13 August 2019 - 07:48 AM

To be fair Nintendo does not usually follow Xbox and PSN prices so your point is moot.

Nintendo didn't publish these, so it shouldn't matter. The whole "Nintendo doesn't discount their games" applies only to Nintendo games, and the third-party games they publish - such as Square-Enix stuff like Dragon Quest XI and Builders 1 and 2, Octopath Traveler, and The World Ends With You. If these games never see the pocket change prices on Switch that they've seen on other platforms, it'll be because Nightdive Studios is greedy, not because Nintendo didn't discount it.




#14193746 Twitch Prime Members: Select games $14.99 + $15 Amazon Credit

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 28 July 2019 - 06:55 AM

Just started a chat with customer service and they issued me a $15 credit for my Fallout 76 :xb1:  purchase, no questions asked. Took probably less than 5 minutes.




#14179848 Best Buy Flash Sale with $10 Promo Certificate

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 19 June 2019 - 07:28 AM

Oops. Ordered a MicroSD card (256GB) from Amazon a few days ago. It was snapped in half though, so I requested a return and replacement. I guess now I'll just cancel the replacement order and get my money back. $39.99 for the same card at Best Buy, AND I get a $10 certificate? AND the chances of getting a fake card are much lower? Seems like a no brainer.




#14174805 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate $1 only !

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 09 June 2019 - 10:58 PM

If you find one let us know. I’m this close to just paying $48 for cdkeys.

Where do you see a $48 one on cdkeys? The one in their daily deal page goes up to $55 when in the cart for me. There's a Brazil one for $46 but it won't work on US accounts.




#14155846 Spider-Man PS4 Finally $29.99 at BB

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 17 April 2019 - 07:18 AM

I fully expect a complete edition around the time Far From Home comes home. I'm more concerned the dlc never goes on sale. Example with WWE 2k19 on sale right now: regular game is 20, deluxe 30, season pass on it's own is 30 and will likely stay that way. I see Spidey doing the same.

The Spidey DLC season pass was on sale for two weeks back in March for $16.




#14155302 Microsoft Store Spring Sale

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 16 April 2019 - 03:52 AM

Which Overwatch is better? Legendary Edition or Game of the Year edition?

GotY edition comes with 10 loot boxes, a pet for WoW, Tracer for Heroes of the Storm, I think Mercy's Wing's for Diablo 3 and a Hearthstone cardback, and the Origins skins for Reaper, S:76, Tracer, Bastion, Pharah. 

 

Legendary Edition comes with that but instead of loot boxes you get 5 epic and 5 legendary skins. 

 

If you can find the GotY edition at gamestop (maybe it's in plentiful supply? I dont know which came first, legendary or GOTY), you apparently get a code for the legendary edition content that isn't included in the GOTY edition. 




#14068843 Amazon Prime Now: Spend $10 on 7up & Get $20 PSN code

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 21 October 2018 - 08:21 PM

Even without a prime now credit for slow shipping you're still getting free money of some value, that's a deal no matter how you cut it

Yeah, but if you don't want or need soda, spending something like $24 on 5 2 liter bottles after tax, shipping, tip, CRV really isn't worth it, especially if you're just in it for the credit. If you give zero fucks about soda, you'd be better off buying a $20 credit than buying $24 in soda you probably won't drink. 

 

For people that do want soda, and aren't dumb about shopping, they know they can buy 2 liter bottles of 7-Up and Dr. Pepper for less than a dollar, sometime even $0.70 a bottle, from their super markets. For an actual cheap ass gamer, spending $2/bottle or $6/12 pack is just absurd. I can buy a $20 credit for PSN and take that $4 to Vons or Ralphs and pick up 5 2 liter bottles of soda, and still have some money left over. 

 

This is a deal for people who already spend $15/month on Amazon Fresh and frequently order $50 in food (otherwise they're going to have to pay a $10 delivery fee, which just makes the deal worse), and who probably don't care about food prices. Those aren't cheap ass gamers. I imagine the actual cheap ass gamers who have saved up a bunch of credits to cover the cost of this are few and far between. 




#14016827 Best Buy's Gamer Club Unlocked will still exist -- but it will cost you

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 25 June 2018 - 09:38 PM

Unless this is some future addition to their new plan, the guy either lied to you or has no idea what they're talking about. I can't find anywhere on that Total Tech Support page that mentions a 20% discount on games, nor do I find one in the terms of service. The only other thing I can think of is that its a secret part of the plan, so if someone wants to be a guinea pig and spend $200 on a crappy tech support plan just to see if they'll save some money on games, please go ahead. 




#13873069 YMMV- Free SC II: Heart of the Swarm for SC II:WoL Owners

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 09 November 2017 - 10:42 PM

SCII is going free to play, so it's not really a YMMV situation, unless maybe you JUST bought WoL. Everyone with a battle.net account can get WoL for free, and people that already had that get HotS for free. The latest expansion isn't free though.


#13785949 New My Best Buy Member Offers - $5 off $30 game, others

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 22 July 2017 - 06:37 PM

How odd. These are pretty much the GCU welcome coupons. I wonder if it's a glitch.


#13659856 Nintendo Switch Preorder Thread 2.0

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 13 March 2017 - 02:02 AM

Just buy the official Nintendo plug. An iOS charger won't be enough to charge the system while playing, and it'll charge really slowly while in sleep mode.


#13654582 Nintendo Switch Preorder Thread 2.0

Posted by smokeyjoey8 on 07 March 2017 - 08:09 AM

I'm pretty sure the Joy-Con's aren't being charged when the Switch isn't plugged in. If anything, using the Switch in tabletop mode will use more battery since the bluetooth is being used at that point.
