The problem is that their stock can be limited with how many they are selling online and depending on the item, it can go out of stock quickly and never return until after the sale is over.

Spoiler:
Also, Target has announced some of their Cyber Monday deals with one of the being the Gears of War console bundle along with a free EA sports game and a free 3-month Live subscription for $300. There will also be a 15% off code that can be used on "virtually everything" according to the press release. Not sure if the code and bundle deal can be combined though.
Went back and also placed an order for Diablo III Ultimate Edition($15.99). Hopefully it is something my wife will enjoy playing co-op on.

Damn, the only game I want that they have at the BF price right now (for non elite members) is AC Syndicate. Ordered that, $30 after taxes with GCU.

Hoping for The Witcher III, MSG Phantom Pain, Mortal Kombat X, and Mad Max.

Picked up copies of AC: Rogue (360) and State of Decay (X1) for $8.99 at Redbox this morning. Here's a very YMMV list of what's in the Redbox sale (from CAG):

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

So I'm confused, are there black friday deals available now? (besides the best buy sale for "special" people)?
And how do you buy games from redbox? I checked their site, and their for sale section is tiny and old compared to that list.

You have to go to each individual Redbox machine and see if it has a special For Sale section. There's no way to search the website or the app.

So.....the Redbox copies...what are we talking about shape wise? Does it have the case w/coverart, are there stickers on the disc, markings etc? I would love to pick up Resident Evil Relevations 2 at $5.99, but if its nothing more than a frisbee, it's not worth my time.

And I wonder if I searched Redbox by just that title, and found a location, I would at least have a chance of it being on sale. I really don't want to go hunting around the city lol.

They probably don't have a little gnome in the box, taking the discs out of those red sleeves, and putting them into real game cases ... so I'm guessing you just get the red sleeve, exactly how you would if you were renting it

The for sale titles are no longer in the rental system, so searching won't help. I tried, believe me.

The two I got today are in mint condition, aside from the barcode sticker on the disc itself (which is standard for all Redbox discs). Discs only.

Sometimes you end up with a junk disc but Redbox customer service has always been very good about refunds when that happens.

If anybody wants one for some reason, the PS4 camera is currently 29.99, which appears to be an all time low: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...eogames&sr=1-1

Similarly, the PStv is $20 at BestBuy.com right now. I grabbed one for that price just to try out the PS4 streaming.

Thanks, I guess I just needed my most recent purchase to show on the site. Looks like I flipped over to Elite this morning.

So I just went to 5 close by Redboxes looking for a deal. At the fifth one I found MLB and Elder Scrolls Online PS4 for sale. Bought both and .... they were both empty. Someone rented them, peeled the upc sticker off them, and then taped it to the empty red case. Apparently that's all you need to do to fool the machine into thinking you returned it. I fucking hate people.

Wow.

Should probably just stick to Gamefly for used game deals. There should be plenty this weekend.

Happens a lot. Redbox CS should refund you pretty quick if you send them photos.

yeah, I called right away, and they refunded my card, no photos necessary. They had another copy of MLB in the machine, but I decided I didn't want to chance it.

How do those people get away with it? You need a credit card to secure the rental. Unless it's a stolen card.

Yeah, but there's no way to prove that the last person that rented it stole it, or if I was just making it up to get free stuff. I'm guessing they just write it off.

Thanks! Picked up MLB... they were out of Elder Scrolls, and I just realized you need PS Plus to play it, which I just let lapse.

I rented Until Dawn about 2 months ago and it was actually Resident Evil 5 PC with a copied code sticker on the hub.

So now you're posting an even better deal than the sale (for the unscrupulous)?
