Don’t forget GameStop maybe closing sooner rather than later.
This was a bad month for deals for me: My Best Buy GCU finally expired, and now Cartwheel is gone.

Unfortunately Cheapassgamer gets federal money and the mods are on furlough because the government shutdown. Jk
Damn. Mods on strike? This hasn't even been stickied at the top yet and it's Tuesday. This was also on the second page. Now's probably a good time to go off topic and rage about something nonsensical

yes must purchase online for either shipping or in store pickup. Make sure your credit card won’t get compromised since any edit to your payment method will result in the price jumping. You can pay with PayPal and pay Best Buy now or buy a Best Buy gift card.
So if my GCU expires next month.. can you still pre-order something now for something in april and still keep the discount on it?
Been looking for the past few weeks and theres really nothing coming out till april i want.

Right, because the clearance price of a CE which varies by store depending on stock levels and the downstocking abilities of a few stores is totally under Best Buy's control.
You might be right about Hellblade though. It could very well be the first thing that didn't go on sale at BB due to Game Pass.

Fortunately Target uses the same barcode for cartwheel, Target Red, and Target Wallet. Yesterday I got Mission Impossible Fallout on 4K for $16.99 plus tax. I price matched at the front registers versus guest services and electronics.
Unfortunately the movies all seem to be full retail price with a select few a bit cheaper as far as newer releases are concerned.

Is this a 25% off coupon that is floating around? There are 2 games I'm interested in getting but don't have GCU.
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom - Switch
Subnautica - Xbox One

I have same setup at home it helps not having to point at each device and it controls my Roku 3 and makes it easier for my dad to watch tv and it switches to right input. You can even turn on your devices remotely via the Harmony app.
Amazon runs semi-frequent deals with the remote and the hub for about 70. The remote you get is whatever they have extras of at the time. Just a heads up in case you were willing to hold out. I like the hub because I can then use my phone AND Alexa to control my TV which is great when I cannot find the remote, which is always.

First ad without GCU. I preordered Hitman 2 Gold Edition online before GCU expires and I used my 25% off one game promo code to bring down to $59.99 and another $1 off for in store pickup. My Best Buy is sold out of preorders of Hitman 2 Gold for PS4 so they better get enough copies in for preorders. I paid using Best Buy gift cards from trade ins so I can’t change pickup locations or to shipping. I guess they do that because of different stores could have different sales tax.
My first ad without GCU. Cue sad trombone

Order online either with a Best Buy gift card or pray that your credit card that doesn’t expire, get physically broken, or stolen. I am going with the Best Buy gift card route.
Probably answered a million times but if I pre order a game at Best Buy that comes out after my GCU expires, will I still get the GCU discount when it comes out?

This coupon is in store only and your GCU has to be active when you pickup a in store preorder since you only but down a deposit and not paid for like online.
Thank you!! And no even if GCU expire you can still get the discounted games. I believe someone reported a while back that if you pay for games as a preorder full price online using GCU, then they are fixed at that price when they ship or pickup
