Some are reporting a glitch making it buy 1 get 1 free. YMMV.

I have a hard enough time finding an employee at all, let alone a cool one. If you must have the 1600 point card, you have a couple of options. Buy 2 1600 point cards (think of it as 50% off) and keep both or sell one for $15. You could also buy a $20 psn card and trade it to someone for a 1600 point card.

Looks like Amazon is having a fairly substantial B2G1 sale - http://t.co/nJFkBn1k

Good sale. Sadly though, I can't find anything I want beyond Dark Souls and RDR GOTY. Wish the new Lego Harry Potter was being released this week.

FYI, RDR GOTY edition will be $29.99 for one day only this Sat @ Best Buy. It was in their ad as part of their daily video game deals this week.

Anyone else grabbing Uncharted 3 and the new PS3 wireless headset for 120 at Kmart? I'm getting it and using my 20 dollar coupon to get this for 100 and another 20 dollar coupon.

THANK YOU! I'll just wait for Dark Souls to come down some then and purchase it separately. But $30 is a steal and a gimme, I don't need a coupon or anything do I?

Nope, it was in Sunday's paper showing each daily deal of the week.

Then I am going to use the $20 coupon from this to get Skyrim and something else next week (plus a $50 coupon).

I zeroed out my K-Mart credits last week by picking up Skylanders for $40, which came with a free bonus figure instead of a bonus credit.

Just picked this up this morning, I was surprised they actually had a few of the headsets, as the other Kmart I go to had none last week.

Also picked up Gran Turismo 5 for 30 bucks, then regretted not using the $20 coupon I just got on it. Ah well, back to the Kmart chain, I guess... this is the first one I've been on in months.

I was going to, but the Kmart was still closed because of the power outages. went to Target and did B2G1F instead. they're running on generators, it was like Dawn of the Dead in there. cool thing was they had to put it on 2 receipts, because they could only take $100 credit card charges for some reason. so the game I wanted least (Ratchet) looks like its just a 1 game purchase, the other receipt with Batman & UC3 is B1G1F, so I can return Clank for full refund.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

haha, I'm on the train as well

Forza 4 LE - $80 + $20 coupon

Batman AC - $40 + $30 coupon

Uncharted 3 - $30 + $20 coupon

and next week it's MW3 (with either a $15 or $50 coupon depending on whatever else I find)

It's been a very expensive past couple of weeks so far.

Being tethered to the PS3 with that Turtle Beach headset is getting old. I'll use my $30 from Batman to make the U3/headset pack $90... then spin that $20 into the spend $110 get $50 coupon next week (Probably MGS:HD and Call of Douchey, I guess) and so on and so forth.

Used my $30 coupon from Batman at Kmart sunday. Picked up RDR GOY with it and got a $5 gift card. Cashier had no idea why there as a gift card.

I should probably just check the CAG thread, but do you have to spend 130 if you want to use the $20 coupon and still get in on the deal?

I think it has to be at least 110 before you use any coupons. So getting two regular priced titles should get you over that hump.

That is what Josh said. Coupons will not reduce the total, so that using a $20 coupon on 2 $60 games will still get you the $50 in coupons ($15 and $35).

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

I think I've decided against the Hardened edition ($100) and just getting the regular edition and the 4000 point card deal ($90=$60+30). I would be missing out on the 100 pg. journal, the avatar outfit, and founder status and a metal case, correct? I'm not seeing the extra $10 of value in that stuff. My K-marts are not part of the midnight launch though so I'll have to go Tuesday morning.
