Hm, just hope they accept a coupon on top of a sale price.

Awesome deal! Will try to redeem tomorrow morning, and repost with results.

It worked fine for me at my local Kmart last night around 8pm. I have read that some BB's are not taking them, they claim they got an email from corporate to stop taking them. It is a barcode scan coupon and the register knows if it is valid or not and well it worked for me!

vote-for1vote-against

These coupons are illegal and not manufacturer or distributer endorsed. The companies don't have to take them but probably will out of good customer service. Being employed by a retail store I'm honestly appalled when I have to ring something like this in. I'm all for good customer service but retailers need to grow a spine and say no.

Aside from the validity of the coupons, the problem to me is that you need to install software...to print a coupon. I looked up the program and found nothing but negative experiences with it. Also anyone can make a fake coupon, you don't need someone to make it for you for the price of your information.

That aside if someone wants to post the actual coupon that'd be great.

@bsgifford05: Illegal? If they were illegal, I doubt coupon printer would take it up....

You have lost it, lol... Because you can go to blurgame.com (their main website), and at the bottom is a link to this coupon site...

La Sigh @everyone claiming this coupon fake. Go to their main site blurgame.com, and see the link at the bottom for yourself, before you go accusing such things.

vote-for1vote-against

If it was not real, the register would not except them, they do scan it first and if it was not in the system it would not work. It's not like you can create some magic barcode that will trick their system lol. Plus as mentioned above it is offered right from the manufacture, hence "manufactures coupon"

vote-for2vote-against

Each coupon has it's own unique code I believe, that and the Coupon Printer program will only let you create one. I've used this for $10 off certain Disney Blu-rays etc... having to have it sucks, but the deals are worth it IMO!

And to touch again on the validity of them, the store that excepts them will be reimbursed by Activision when they submit the coupons like they do with all the others.

I'll pass on installing the malware from coupons.com, thanks anyway.

@stuntdriver: This isn't true. It IS possible to create fake coupons, just google it. There was a stint a few months back where retails stores were flooded with them.

@dysl3xicdog: Install, print, uninstall... Pretty simple.

Picked it up for $22 after tax and coupon at my local K-Mart. Good deal OP.

vote-for1vote-against

@kibouhou: Hmm... I just wouldn't think it was possible for something that was scanned. I just don't see how you can tell their system to discount said amount from a certain product.

The Blur/Activision coupon does not show up as a counterfeit. But man, look at all the rewards offered to find those creating them that are.

vote-for1vote-against

@stuntdriver: There are certain bar codes that don't check what you have already rang up and require you to enter the coupon value. There was a big problem with someone that found out one of these codes, and made tons of TGI Fridays frozen appetizers free with the code. I know all my local stores wouldn't take printed coupons for the longest time after that. They have since got most of those bar codes out of their systems, but there are still a few left in there.

vote-for1vote-against

@marrob: I have been reading (just now) that it is the freebie coupons that created most of these problems.

vote-for2vote-against

@stuntdriver: The only problem with your instructions (not bashing) is fairly simple; you may install, print, then uninstall... but then what's the purpose of uninstalling - your computer's vital stats (i.e. BIOS Revision, windows version, etc.) have already been sent out.

My solution was to just install it on another computer other than my own, and print from there. Someplace like work, library, school... They may even have some sort of "deepfreeze" program that'll wipe the program once the system shuts down anyway.

Oh, and fyi, the coupon totally worked for me. The only ones with which I've ever had issues were things like the Kmart stint a few months back... the "couponprinter" ones all seem to work just fine.

vote-for1vote-against

@arosiriak: Right, that could happen, and may but IMO it is still harmless and if it was not I could see it becoming a something bad for those that use it like the Sony rootkit fiasco. So that is why I am OK with using it.

What was the Kmart stint a few months back?

vote-for1vote-against

BTW, glad to see you and a few others are getting a great deal with this!

vote-for1vote-against

I am not condoning this in any way what-so-ever but there are sights just like this all over the place, one of the more prominent being cheetahmail.com where you can print coupons with barcodes and the whole works. Several coupons of the retailer I work for ended up on this sight and we wouldn't take them. The reason? they were illegally obtained and not endorsed by our company. Did I mention I am a manager at said retailer and have a pretty good idea what i'm talking about.

vote-for1vote-against

The validity of this specific coupon aside a register will take the barcode because it doesn't know the difference. A picture of a barcode is just as good as the actual barcode. It's like downloading music illegally (any method in which you did not personally pay for the rights to use it), it still plays in your Ipod (or whatever) just like any music, but it was obtained illegally.

vote-for1vote-against

I will agree with that having to use "Coupon Printer" to get valid coupons is a bit sketchy (program wise) and what not, but I say without a doubt that the coupon for this game is 100% legit a manufacture endorsed coupon!

vote-for3vote-against

DUDE, I'm so all over this. Thanks!!!

vote-for2vote-against

just used it at local kmart worked... NO PROBLEMS!!!!

vote-for4vote-against

managed to get the game for $12 and change at best buy. the manufacturer coupon + $10 reward zone coupon. quite the steal.

vote-for1vote-against

Informed at my local Kmart that corporate told them not to accept the coupon anymore. No Blur for me.

vote-for1vote-against

Mannnnnn... I didnt have paper in the printer and canceled the print job so I could put some in. Only to b informed that I couldnt print anymore! funk!!!! stupid spyware is on my computer, what more do they want???

vote-for1vote-against

Can anyone confirm the region in which the Kmarts are not accepting the coupons?

vote-for2vote-against

Worked for me at BestBuy(in NYC) this morning.

vote-for1vote-against

Confirmed that Best Buy corporate has sent out a memo to all GM's that they are not to accept these coupons. HOWEVER, if you take a copy of your local Best Buy flyer to any Target store, they will price match the flyer and honor the manufacturer coupon as well. The caveat is that YOU MUST HAVE THE PRINTED FLYER for target to price match. Just went through this dog and pony show over my lunch break, and in the end, I'm holding my copy of blur for $21.49 after tax. I'm in the St Louis area.

vote-for2vote-against

If you sign up for bestbuy reward zone (for free) you can print out an additional $10 coupon. This will bring the price down to $10 plus tax. I haven't done it yet but others have said they accept both coupons.

vote-for2vote-against

picked it up for $11.79 after tax at my local Best Buy, using the $20 MFG Coupon and the $10 Best Buy RewardZone coupon.. Coupons FTW!

vote-for1vote-against

Wow, an additional $10 off... surprised they even did that being double up on deals. What I don't understand is why "corporate" for either of them would deny a legit deal...

vote-for1vote-against

hmm so kmart and bestbuy are no longer accepting these coupons...is it too late to say I told you so?

vote-for1vote-against

@bsgifford05: Nope, some are some aren't. It is still a legit coupon that has been accepted at Walmart, Target etc... perhaps they are just trying to stop it with the ongoing sale.

vote-for2vote-against

Just thought I'd add a bit of extra savings to this thread...

If you are purchasing from Best Buy, you can get an ADDITIONAL $10 OFF if you are a Rewards Zone member. Print the coupon below; valid through July 3:

https://myrewardzone.bestbuy.com/viewDetails.jspx?tc=CPN_10

This coupon is also good for Just Cause 2...

In order to redeem this, the $10 Rewards Zone coupon MUST BE SCANNED BEFORE the $20 coupon!

Enjoy!

vote-for2vote-against

Ok, went out and did some searching/research.

Best Buy will only take one of the coupons (unless they don't go talk to their manager first, but most of the cashiers I dealt with were scared to do both without talking to management). Still brings it down to $20, which isn't bad at all.

Kmart is not accepting the coupon, because they say their sale price voids the coupon (then they spent about 10 minutes trying to read the small text to me instead of giving me my coupon back, cause I said I didn't want the game that much, but I still needed the coupon for testing, lol).

Target did it on the xbox 360 version, until sold out (price match, then coupon), but my local target did not get the PS3 version in yet.

Didn't try anywhere else, but I'm sure I could get walmart to accept it.

vote-for1vote-against

Oh, about the Kmart one. She actually tried to ring it up, but it had been updated in the system not to take the coupon. When she called a manager up, they were the ones telling me I couldn't use the coupon with the sale.

vote-for2vote-against

My attempts before Best Buy:

Kmart - took coupon, but wouldn't match their online price.
Sears - would match online price, but refused coupon
Gamestop - wouldn't take either
Walmart - Wouldn't match best buy without a printed circular, wouldn't take coupon
Target - wouldn't match either
Best Buy #1 - sold out, said they would've had to have manager approval
Best Buy #2 - Had a few in stock, took coupon without question.

vote-for1vote-against

@marrob: Bummer if Kmart is now denying it, especially since it is legit.

vote-for1vote-against

@jamiemadrox17: $39.99 was also the ad price in store as well.

vote-for1vote-against

Just tried at Best Buy, and they wouldn't take it. Cited the text on the coupon that says "not valid with any other offers or promotions", said i either got the sale price, or the coupon, but not both.

They scanned the coupon, and the system recognized it, but gave discount as $0.

Bummer.

vote-for2vote-against

Usually I'm a bit wary when it comes to printable coupons but took the chance. I took it to my local Best Buy before noon and they took it no questions asked. Scanned in without extra hassle. Don't know if they still are, I may have gotten in there before any notice was sent through the stores.

I think the coupon is legit but retailers are playing it cautious. With such a sizable discount I don't blame them. They don't get feedback about fraudulent coupon redemption until the coupons are sent in and they see whether or not the get their money back.

The game on the other hand I don't know how long I'll keep. I definitely would rather have purchased Split Second.

vote-for2vote-against

store get reimbursed the discount of a manufacturer coupon when a customer uses one. they have no reason not to accept it really.

vote-for2vote-against

I just used the k-mart one last night and it worked. Got it for $22.43. What a deal

vote-for1vote-against

@seiplej: Awesome, Glad to hear of more successful purchases. Sorry about the ones that get denied, perhaps price match at another store and then present the coupon.

vote-for2vote-against

The only reason they are not accepting them besides the $ amount is that they want as much money as they can in this economy. why only make $40 on a game when you can make $60 when they use the coupon on full price. Basically screwing us over to make a buck

vote-for2vote-against

I used the coupon at a Best Buy last evening. They took it without any question. They didn't even scan the coupon, just keyed in $20 off on the register.
