Well, lol, this is the "unofficial" handwringing thread on this site. My receipt says Dec. 9th is the deadline but I will get it in before that...

I need some advice/recommendations. I have that $10 coupon from COD and I wanted to pick something up, but most of what I want is going to be cheaper on Black Friday. Does anyone have any idea of a good game, that's not going to be a part of Black Friday that I could pick up before the coupon expires? I have a PS4 and Switch. Any responses are appreciated. I've played a shit ton of games so maybe if you have a few to recommend you could drop them in a response.
As far as my gaming tastes goes, I play just about everything except for racing and sports games. I feel like most of the games that I've missed are ones that have probably flown under the radar. Another thing is that the games don't necessarily have to fantastic.
I would actually recommend buying any used top-tier Switch title you are interested in. Would make the game $44.99 before any membership related discounts. I actually plan to do this for Link's awakening...since the ad next week is a dud (all the good sales will start after the coupon expires).

so why do people buy the game and return it within 48 hrs just to get back the money there spent on it?
With one game I did it just to get one of my preorders out of the system. Under the current "Prestige Store" system, stores are more crazy than ever about you just cancelling a pre-order straight up. If you do a lot of business at gamestop, it's better to purchase a pre-order rather than to just cancel. This promo offers a good compromise because you can roll over an unwanted preorder to a game under this promo (which is also often tied to the xtra 20% trade bonus). You get your cash out of the pre-order hold, you give the store a sale and you give the store a trade in when you take the game back 2 days later (also that's 2 xtra surveys for the store). You lose the tax, which is $6 in Cali, but that's about the same as 2-3 days of Redbox rental fees so it's not the end of the world.
With Code Vein, there is also a $10 reward cert that is supposed to be emailed to those that picked up the game. So basically with that and the $59.99 return you rent the game for 2 days AND come out about $4 ahead (even after tax).
