bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch.

I guess I need a CAG break because the complaining in EVERY thread is really getting to me.

Um...who's the one bitching? Probably the one screaming profanity and telling us their personal issues with this site, I'd wager.

I think they'll come up with something else before the last membership expires.


So in 2020 or 2021? You know they can't wait that long, right?

It's not just you man. This thread is filled with ludicrous replies. Best Buy has been setting the retail standard of video game sales for many years. A lot of people can't see anything past themselves though.

You can't point to the past and assume that's the current situation. They did set the standard (which I mentioned already BTW) but are now competing against themselves.

If you guys perceive objectively negative assessment of the current situation as "complaining", you need some more context in your life. Only young people without a willingness to learn or lightly debate see that as "negative" and "harshing my mellow man". Grow up; either reply with something fruitful, or move along. The blanket statement "this thread is filled with ludicrous replies" is in fact ludicrous - it offers nothing.

They're not going to have crazy blowout replacement sales while many of still have GCU into 2020.

So your advice is what, to not be competitive for the next two years?

They've had sales before, and with every single day, there are fewer GCU members. This means the amount of deals should steadily increase, not drastically decrease as it has been. They could have easily had competitive prices for this sale and make GCU ineligible, as they have for their actual BF ads. I think we've run out of justifications and excuses for them.

I'm not expecting blowout sales. Just...something. While I agree customers aren't "owed" anything especially if the GCU program was financially unstable, we are not to blame for the market standards THEY'VE helped create. They've dug their hole and they're only digging deeper. It's time to think up ideas to restore customer faith, not be antagonistic. Otherwise, basic economics tells us that we will absolutely be sucked up by another retailer, even if it's PSN and XBL themselves.
