@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...

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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-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!

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-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.

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-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.

vote-for2vote-against

I guess I am a big coupon person.. so I use the coupon printer a lot. It is very legit you just have to be careful what sites you are using it on!
The bottom of the coupon says Valid with no discounts or other offers. 90% of coupons have that and its refering to Manufacturer Discounts not store discounts. EXAMPLE: Target will take both a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon for one item.
I did this yesterday at Kmart sale price of 39.99 and 20 dollars of coupon. The coupon needs to be rung up manually which most of the service managers should be able to do.
This morning my friend did it at Target because Kmart ran out. Bring in Kmart or Best Buy Ad, they will price match AND use the coupon.

I'm at work and we've got some pretty awesome firewalls up. I clicked the link and the site was blocked claiming the site has "potentially damaging content." Be careful, clickers!

Worked at my local Best Buy (Concord, NC) last night without any problems. I wasn't aware of the additional Rewards $10 so I can't comment on whether they would have taken it or not.

vote-for2vote-against

Just picked one up in Nashville, TN. Only copy left on the floor, so I guess they'd seen plenty of the coupon before I got there. Even got the reward zone coupon with no trouble at all.

vote-for2vote-against

Both coupons just worked for me at the Joplin, MO Best Buy, no questions asked. Walked out game in hand for $9.99 + tax

vote-for2vote-against

Well, I just used the coupon at KMart, and after several phone calls to managers and staring at the coupon, and all but accusing us of bringing in a fraudulent coupon, it got rang up and I left with the game for $22.70.

This makes me think i should have been more forceful at my Best Buy. Going to try a K-Mart and another Best Buy tonight.

For the two that had to argue, what argument did you use to convince them?

vote-for2vote-against

Update! Went to K-Mart last night, and had no problems. Manager had to come, made a call, and she and the cashier talked in Spanish for a bit, but they asked no questions. Woot Woot.

I just picked it up at the local Best Buy today for $9.99. No sales tax in NH. Cashier didn't even flinch while scanning the coupons.

vote-for2vote-against

Brought the $20 off manufacturers coupon and the $10 off Best Buy RZ coupon to my local Best Buy.

Was a little nervous when she said she had to get manager approval, but the manager didn't even flinch. They keyed in $20 off manually didn't even scan the coupon. Didn't give me any hassle about having two coupons either.

I walked out with $60 game in hand for $11.72. What a steal!

vote-for2vote-against

I was also able to use both coupons at Best Buy. You will need to ask for a manager, who will need to go to the office and validate the coupon. Also, make sure they scan the Reward Zone card, then Best Buy coupon, then total the order, then manually enter the coupon with their F7 key. Be persistent, and you should be able to make it work. $9.99 + tax is an awesome price for this game to say the least.

vote-for2vote-against

Just got home from Best Buy and have the game in hand for 22.39. Blur wasn't really on my radar but for this price, it was a no brainer. Many thanks to the OP!

K-Mart sucks. Wouldnt take the coupon but Best Buy took it no questions asked and when I used this coupon https://myrewardzone.bestbuy.com/viewDetails.jspx?tc=CPN_10, I walked out with the game for $12.76

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.

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-for1vote-against

@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.

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-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.
