Ok, it's two days late... but it's as good as it's ever been.

 

No game of the week. I've never been a Mortal Kombat fan, and although I used to really enjoy the Tony Hawk series... THUG 2 just isn't on my radar.

Well, I'd be interested in picking up 007: Everything or Nothing.

Has anyone done this before,.... pricematched $19.99 at Bestbuy (using Circuit City's ad), and then used the gamer giftcard coupon to save $5.00? Will they let you use a coupon if they've price matched? I'd like to pick this game up for $14.99. :)

Well, I didn't mean that you were spending more for the game, but rather you would be putting more money down at the time of purchase, (basically in order to get the $5.00 coupon to use at CircuitCity you would have to put some amont of money on the Gamergiftcard), and it would be locked up until you decided to then go purchase a game at Bestbuy. Sorry for the confusion. :?

Effectively knocks the game down to $30.

 

As for PMing and using a GGC, most BB's won't let you do it since the coupon says "not valid with other offers". If you can convince them, they'll have to ring you up on a yellow reciept at customer service. Circuit City's policy is to accept competitor coupons so it should be easier there.

 

As for putting 1 cent on the coupons, if you make it so obvious that you're blatantly abusing their promotion, it's likely to be yanked. Be respectable and put a 5 or 10 spot down.

Oh, I understand now.

 

Yeah, it does stink to have to lock up $5 bucks on the gamer gift card, but I know I'm going to spend that $5 eventually... it's just a matter of when.

 

Half the time, I just put $15.81 on the card, as that's the amount of a $14.99 game here after tax.

In the Best Buy & Gamepro "Top Games of 2004!" book (Ray Lewis on the cover), the last page has a "$5 off any Live game" coupon. I picked up NBA2K5 at BB for $10.49.

 

:shock: Yikes! Great deal! :tu: (now this is the free ad zine they have at Bestbuy, correct? Or is this a zine that costs money?)

Yeah, it's free, just a collection of GamePro previews and coupons. I've also used the coupon to get Outlaw Volleyball for $5. The cashier might have to talk to a manager first, since selling the games for so cheap frightens their feelings of job security, but it's perfectly legit. The mag is getting a little scarce, but I always find one mixed in among the strategy guides.

So can you get Mortal Kombat Deception (at Target) - $49.99 w/ $10 Gift Card and still use the $10 off coupon? Making the game $29.99.

 

If I missed something and can get a better deal somewhere else please fill me in.. :)

 

What is the extra Coupon??? The second 10 off coupon?

Thanks,

My experience with target gift cards is you cannot use them for that purchase. As for the coupon the only one I know of was posted earlier in this thread.

Well I would normally, but a Best Buy manager told me to do it that way. Besides, I now have a small stack of 1 cent gift cards for the white elephant Xmas party my friends have every year. ;)
