Interesting. They didn't announce any exclusions when they came out with the offer. I like how they do that after the fact.

I was able to get the 3DS XL Mario bundle for $135. One cashier was scanning the discount and the other would not do it.

I overheard some of the cashiers talking when I was there a bit ago and they were getting chewed out because only 65% of transactions were being rimg up with the discount.

Not a mammoth deal or anything, but the director's cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution went down $10 on Amazon for the 360 and PS3, taking it to $19.99. $9.99 for the PC download.

Amazon.ca is selling the PSN Plus 12 months card for $29.99 matching the Boxing Day sale at Wal-Mart and Future Shop.

I'm set for the next two years...

The PC download version is only $4.99 at Amazon.
Also picked up a lego bundle there for $17.99. has Batman 2, LOTR, and Harry Potter 5-7. I think that's a decent deal if you like those lego games

There's also a pretty great Sonic sale at Amazon. They have something called Sonic Everywhere Pack for $14.99. Has just about every sonic game imaginable.
Sonic Generations, all star racing, Sonic 1,2,3,4, and CD, Adventure 1 &2, etc. ..

BB currently has their 100% trade in bonus going on. A few of the newer games are fetching $20 + $20 bonus (+$2 gamer unlocked bonus). Dumped Knack last night for $42 and Tomb Raider for $13. Not too shabby.

I've never traded a game in at Best Buy, do you get cash or gift card? Or do you get a choice?

Gift card.

The deal they have been running the last two days was pretty sick. Buy 2 next gen games and get a $25 GC stacked with spend $100 get a $15 GC. So if you had two next gen games and spent $100 total get $40 in GCs back.

Lots of games are $39.99 right now if you have GCU including forza 5, ryse, dead rising 3, killzone, cod:ghosts.

Bought several of these in pairs and added in a $25 amazon card. Total was $105 + tax....around $113. Turned around and traded in 1 or 2 of the games for $42 each.

So if you wanted to, you could have spent $113 and gotten $124 in Best Buy gift cards AND a $25 amazon card. Worked out well because I already had gift cards from Christmas gifts.

Not really worth it just for the flipping, but if you kept one of the games from each round, still ended up spending $113 in best buy gift cards and ended up with a next gen game like DR3 and $82 in best buy GC and $25 amazon GC.

I did 4 rounds of this and ended up with DR3, COD Ghosts, and BF4. Was gonna keep Forza 5 but changed my mind and traded it in.

edit:

Wow. Just did the math on this. Traded in 5 of the 8 games I purchased.

Overall spent $460 in best buy gift cards and ended up with $370 in best buy gift cards, $100 in amazon gift cards and Dead Rising 3, BF4 and COD:Ghosts.

I feel dirty.

Is the $25 + $15 offer at BB over today? Did it include WiiU or just the other two?
