Good deals on Splinter Cell and Metroid Prime

Splinter Cell for 37.99 @ Circuit City.com
http://www.circuitcity.com/frame1.js...nleftcat=Games

with Free shipping (probably sales tax though) and then 20% back with the msn wallet deal.

Metroid Prime is $45 used at EBGames.com, but you get 20% back with 20PRWN, and then another 20% off using msn wallet, no sales tax (in MN at least) but you pay for shipping.

It's the same price ($37.99) in-store. I just bought one this morning. They also give you the X Box demo whatever(with Panzer Dragoon) for free but I didn't know about that then so I didn't get it.

Oh wow, that was fast. Luckily I placed my order before it sold out. That sucks since you can't get the MSN part of it offline. That MSN thing is nuts, I don't know what I'll do with my $190 in MSN money.

I thought I was bad with $80 in mine. I am thinking I will use it and the $40 in gift cards to get a new cd player for the truck.

crap and I just bought this on Friday for 49.99 (spinter cell) from CC's website! Do they have a low price policy for their website so I can get my difference?

Yes, per account, but they explicitly say it's 2 per household, so my wife has one and I have one.

Low Price Guarantee

Even after your Circuit City purchase, if you see a lower price within 30 days, including our own sale prices, we'll refund 110 % of the difference.

Picked up Metroid Prime at Costco last weekend for something like $43 brand new (plus the $5 rebate from Nintendo - woohoo!).

You can also use the $5 off coupon for best buy found from various game magazines to use at circuit city. They will accept these. I used it today to get splinter cell for $32.99.

Woohoo! I finally became a senior member!!

In the past, for me coupons plus price matching has been like pulling teeth at BB. I simply quit doing it. Of course it's YMMV and if it works for you, that's great.

Sweet!!!!

GP, I think what Jiggywhat was saying is that Circuit City accepts BB coupons.

I can't believe that I never tried this before, this is amazing.

Next time I'm at BB, I'm buying 10-20 giftcards to stock up on those $5 coupons(which are good until 12-31-03).

Wouldn't the CC accepting them be a YMMV thing also, or is this widely done?

First I asked if they accept competitor's coupons and the he says like the 10% coupons (preferred weekend coupons). I say yes and will you accept a $5 off coupon and he says yes. I pull out my coupon and voila $5 off splinter cell. I have tried only one circuit city so I don't know if this is widely done.

Where is it for $39.99 ? The link you show has expired and it's on the web for $49.99.
