PSX's, N64's, and Dreamcasts - $19.99 at EB + 1 more deal.

The new issue of GMR has an ad in it advertising that EB has PSX's, N64's and Dreamcasts for $19.99. I know that these systems are usually $29.99.

I'm finally going to get a Dreamcast with my $35 Matrix gift voucher.

Also, the same issue of GMR has a coupon for an extra 20% trade-in credit on all games you bring in with the coupon.

I bought mine from them around Jan and I think they had a minimal return period for defective consoles and the option to buy an extended warrenty for 6 months or so for around $5.

Damn. Dreamcast go for $40 so getting it for $20 is a damn good deal. What is GMR by the way?

Looks like I'm going to have to make my way to EB tomorrow. Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can get my hands on a DC.

If you send it in to Sega it'll cost $50 to fix, but then you also know what your system has been through, unlike a used one you buy from the store.

I called and they confirmed... if you have their membership, it's $19.99. I'm picking up a Nintendo 64 and a Dreamcast today for $40 total (I'm not picking up a PSX simply because I have a PS2).

EDIT: NEVERMIND, i understand now. I called back. Apparently i need the coupon out of GMR.

Kinda sours the deal, since i'd have to buy the 5$ magazine. Not sure if all the EB's are treeating it this way, but the local store was pretty hung up on the coupon.

I went to EB and there is no such deal.

I talked to the guy working there, and he said he had not heard of such a deal. He said he was aware of a 20% trade in coupon, but no other coupon.

Some guy who was there and had the magazine said there was no such coupon in it (as the magazine is in a platic sleeve).

So I don't know what is going, but that is two people who said this deal doesn't exist. Good luck getting anything to work.

Here's the thing: It's not a coupon or a special deal. What GMR states is that if you have their membership, the consoles are $19.99 instead of $29.99. That is all

$10 for 10 months gives you % off used games and 10 issues of GMR (a VERY good magazine, as is Gamestop's Game Informer... I'm beginning to enjoy these more than EGM/GamePro/etc). The % off depends on # of games bought.

Yeah, I got the Game Informer deal last time I traded in some games (they gave it to me with my trade in of 3 games or something). Gets me 10% off used games and the 10 months of mag. Too bad I already got this card for free otherwise I would be interested. Thanks for the deal anyway. Hopefully GameStop will come out with a deal like this.

I find that it depends on the location when it comes to EB and deals

the DC and N64 were supposed to be 30$ Cdn and most did have it but the one in town here still only had them at 40$ (They have no DC anyways, hard to get here) and said that they never heard of such a deal

I really don't see what the hold up is for some of you.

Here's the coupon scanned from my copy of the magazine. It says nothing about a membership to anything at all. It does not say "At participating locations only" or anything like that. Take the coupon from the mag, and demand the price.



Here's the issue that it's from.


At least try to do your homework before trying to call me out on a fake deal.

The membership talk I think refers to having to be a receving member of the magazine to get the coupon to begin with.
