Sold! I've had $15 WM gift card laying around for months that I couldn't find anything to spend it on. So $35 for $70. Works for me. Thanks Deck.

Darn, they cancelled my order “due to unusual activity” and now it’s 70.

Hmm, I got the code from Walmart within a minute of ordering yesterday and entered the money into my Nintendo account using the link in the Walmart email without any problems.

Looks like they won't be getting any gaming money much longer...

Wow, it's just not Decker's week.

So they're canceling people that had stocked up? That's kinda shitty. Mine finally ran out last April.

Silver lining? Maybe they're launching a new GCU and need to close the books on the old accounts beforehand?

I don't believe they are replacing the program since they already have the My Best Buy program.

Yeah if they were replacing the program they would have announced something right when it officially closed down for new memberships.

Not having it has saved me a ton of money, though.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

It was a good run.

Honestly, with Costco discounting digital game currency 10%, and digital games not being taxed, the cost for a new game digitally vs at Best Buy was basically the same. It was nice when they gave a $10 RZ certificate or Steelbook though. And sales were awesome (it even worked with Black Friday this year, I bought SO much).
It will really hurt with CE's going forward though. That discount could save me $30 or more on one of those. I am hoping and praying for an announcement of a CE for Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart before the end of February.

Digital games aren't taxed? I could swear I have paid sales tax on my my digital game purchases.

Also, I bought two of those Walmart 70 for 50 deals on the currency.

Depends on your state. All my digital games have been taxed for at least 5 years or so.

Here's a list of those that do and don't :

I bet Best Buy is further distancing itself from Media. This is a needed step for them when it comes to games. I guess they plan on banking on those big box items, keep their employee hours low, and keep those investors bank accounts flush. I have even heard of some of the locations going to warehouse only where they will only be shipping items out and not be allowing customers in and on the floor. Just what I have heard.

The only people in Best Buy will be those asking if you're satisfied with your current TV and internet service.
