I went in today and picked up three of them in the "3 for 10" bin. I have the Gamer Card, which normally knocks off 10%, so it woulda been "3 for 9" instead. After he totaled me up, it was like $6.48 after tax. I looked at my receipt after I left and he marked two of the titles at $3.33, and the third one for free.

I don't know if this is the norm with the 3for10 and the gamer card, but if so, it's a pretty good deal.

It was, I picked up over 30 titles at those prices. Today, however, I went in and was told they're not stacking it the same way, so I got 4/$10 outta the bin. Not as good, but not too bad.

Went into EB last night, was told that the sale is finally over. Went across the street to Gamestop to confirm (since the employees at that EB tend not to know what's going on) and all the B2G1F signs were down.

I was told to expect the sale to come back quickly, as many stores are still having to brick multiple copies of titles and store them in back. Of course that problem wouldn't happen if the dumbasses in charge would say "OK, if your inventory shows that you already have 10 copies of Matrix: Revolutions on hand and you haven't sold one in months, don't take any more copies of it!"

Went into 3 Gamestops yesterday, and no sign that the sale was over. In fact, two of them, the employees felt it necessary to tell me about the sale, even though there were signs everywhere.

Deals still going on around my area too. Course, about a month ago they were running very low on good stuff ... it's progressed further.

People are just not trading in as much around here - and [peter griffin] it really "grinds my gears". [/peter griffin]

For some reason, all my local Gamestops carry the same used boxsets like Angel S1, Smallville, and Boy Knows World. I've never seen a Star Trek set there.

I scored a mega deal today. I was sifting through the 4/$10 bin and found the Jake the Snake WWE set in there for $5.99. I searched a bit more and found ECW One Night Stand and the new ECW Bloodsport disc. I rounded this selection out with the Taboo Tuesday DVD for $10!! Smoking deal! It looks like all the WWE DVDs are going in with a generic UPC.

OK, here's the deal. I had been told that EB and Gamestop were now merged when it came to polcies like this, and when EB said it was over, I thought that it meant Gamestop's was done also. I went into another GS tonight, and asked the manager about it. She looked through the recent e-mails and couldn't find anything. So either it's over at EB only, or the manager at EB is a moron and didn't know what she was talking about.

EB and Game Stop aren't merged when it comes to deals. From what I've heard, EB gets no deal information from the office, and each store has the option of running B2G1 (I've gone to EB's that have no signage whatsoever but gave me the sale). All Game Stops are still running the sale.

No GameStop's around here are. No signage, nothing. I went to 2 of them today. Same old shit, anyway. Been the same for the past month, now. Exact same merch.

Has anyone heard whether EB Games will ever accept the GameStop discount cards?

They're working towards it, but there's no definite date. I'd say as soon as they get a standard computer system for all stores, we'll see them accepting both cards.

The EB near me is still running the B2G1, and also the 3 for $10 on movies $5.99 and under. With the discount card, I picked up:

The Jacket
Spawn
Dead & Breakfast

For a little over $8 after tax yesterday.

The bins are pretty empty now...

I can always find one or two of the $5.99 titles but finding four is very hard to do...

Too bad you can't get two from one store then goto another store and get two more...

Nice find!

I scored at a GameStop yesterday: found The British War Collection for $9.99 (it was labeled as War Stories). This is a 5-disc set that retails for $89.99. Got it and two TV box sets for $25.xx after tax.

I couldn't believe it when I saw it, it was hard to find two others, but I think I did all right. I've yet to find any good sets at a GS yet. Good find on the British War Collection.

I just stopped into my local EB games today (Mishawaka, IN) and the clerk told me that he was just switching all of the prices over to the gamestop system. He also informed me that the CSI season 5 were priced as $5.99 because they didn't show up in the system correctly. I ended up picking 13 of them (I have no idea why they had so many).

Seems both Gamestop and EB games have stopped the B2G1 sale on DVDs...

However, I went into an EBG, which I usually don't do, and looked through their DVD section...

Found a B2G1 sign still up and asked them about it and they said that the sale was over but since I found the sign, if I wanted any DVDs then I would get the sale...

That was nice of them to do...

I really didn't find anything that good however they had the 3 @ $10 bin and looked through that and found:

$3.99 "Very Bad Things"

$3.99 "Way Of The Gun"

$3.99 "It Could Happen To You"

So I got these 3 for $8...

BTW: looks like EBG is starting to make the change over to GS...

My store started B2G1 for games, but pulled down the sale for DVD's, which sucks because I wanted to mix and mach a few things.
