Looks like a good deal. Amazon has this for $294.34 w/ a $60 gift card.

Wish I had some extra money. This is a SWEET deal.

The Deal I've been waiting for.

I was just about to post this deal up, Not sure if I'm down for a PS3 though. Xbox 360 has been my one love for many years.

I have a 60gig POS3 I'll sell someone for $50. Ignore the red blinking light. I'm sure it will stop soon.

Just wait till tomorrow, I'm sure Amazon will match it so that means no local tax!

Can you use this with the PS3 Call of Duty Bundle?

vote-for1vote-against

@afranklin00: the coupon says, "Not good in combination with any other coupons or offers". but you could still try and see what happens.

vote-for2vote-against

The coupon does specify it's for SKU 1237212 so if someone lets you buy SKU 2576031 with it, you come out ahead.

Does best buy sell identity theft protection?

Somebody on another thread mentioned that if you buy three $100 gift cards from Albertson, you receive a $20 gift card per $100 bb gc for to use at Albertsons...

vote-for1vote-against

@loubriccant: About even. You get slightly more in GC from BB, but they also mark up their prices a lot more....

@spicyflavor: Sadly, not as old as it should be. Various divisions of Sony have been getting gang-hacked for a while now. It's been quiet for a few weeks; we're just about due...

I picked up the PS3/$60 from amazon and you can bet your sweet bippy that none of my personal info is going into a PSN account.

vote-for5vote-against

@afranklin00: I was able to use this with the PS3 Call of Duty bundle. When they scanned the coupon, it automatically prompted them to give a gift card. So apparently the PS3 COD SKU is good for the coupon.

vote-for1vote-against

I can also verify this coupon works.

I had purchased this when the $60.00 Gift card was available the end of May. I didn't open it thinking that at E3 there might be a price drop....NOPE.

So when I saw this deal, I took the PS3, GC, Receipt, and coupon to BB, and they did a full return and then re-rang me up. I ended up with a 100 GC now.

Thanks for posting.

BTW, how do you find these coupons anyway?

vote-for1vote-against

@btanoue: there's a lot of different ways. facebook, twitter, store emails, other forums, etc.

Don't forget to pick up your copy of Duke Nukem Forever!

vote-for2vote-against

SO you buy 1, use the Gift Card to buy another. Then return one of them with the other Gift Card so you don't have to buy anything else from BB...

vote-for1vote-against

@alphacentaurian, maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean, but the way I read your post is that you're using the gift card to buy another PS3+gift card and then returning what you just bought. Why not just buy one and keep the gift card?

vote-for1vote-against

This just sucks for me because i just recently purchased last week promo with the $50 gift card. I even called BB and ask them about re-purchasing it back to get the 100 GC even though i already spent the 50 the same day, they told me once the GC is used the new promo is void since they have to return everything back and re-purchase it to get the new promo, so whoever is planing get one, this is an unbelievable promotion deal.

vote-for1vote-against

Buy PS3A (comes with Gift Card A).
Use Gift Card A to buy PS3 B (which comes with Gift Card B).
Return PS3 A with Gift Card B = total out of pocket $199+tax.
This is better than $299+tax & a $100 Gift Card that you have to buy overpriced stuff from BB with.

vote-for1vote-against

@alphacenturian: Doesn't work like that, they can track the gift card number. If you don't return with the exact same gift card it come out of your total. That is my experience in the past when I bought and returned a item that came with a gift card.

Secondly is Sony trying to purge their stock of PS3 for something else just like XBOX did by making this "Special Editions" ie Modern Warfare so they could roll out a new Xbox 360 Slim?

Finally why would you want a PS3 with the network constantly being hacked and unplayable? I know you can play games on the unit and not the network, but that was so the 1980s, 1990s, lets just say it 1900s.

I want a PS3, I just seem to struggle getting past my last point.

Just used the coupon and got the COD Bundle! Dunno why I need two 160g PS3 and two Black Ops tho...

vote-for0vote-against

Just used this coupon. The little big planet / controller bundle was on sale for $40. That's less than a controller alone. Still hand enough left to get 2 older titles i've been wanting to play and $20 psn card.

vote-for4vote-against

Got the Black Ops Bundle.

Proud owner of a brand new PS3, GTA IV, Tiger 12, LA Noire, Black Ops

With MLB The Show 11 and GT 5 on the way

what other games do i need?

vote-for1vote-against

@dannyjake: @repobz: Did either of you have a problem with SKU being a different number on the coupon and the COD Bundle when you went to check out?

vote-for2vote-against

Just got the black ops bundle. Waiting to see if I get the "Welcome Back" package as a first time user of the Playstation Network. Does anybody know if I do or not?

vote-for2vote-against

Just verified that it works with the BlackOps bundle. When they scan the coupon the register doesn't ask the checker to verify the SKU so it goes through fine. If your cashier is overly ambitious and tries to match up the SKU then you'll probably have an issue.

vote-for0vote-against

The people at the local best buy said you had to be some prestige member or something. Being a prestige member means I have to buy $2,500 worth of stuff in a year.

@lilleswing: I've heard you don't but don't know.

vote-for1vote-against

@lilleswing: Looks like I did not get the "Welcome Back Package". How upsetting I would have really liked Little Big Planet + inFamous

Just purchased the black ops bundle. You can the use the $100 gift card to buy 2 $50 amazon kindle cards which are good for anything on amazon.

vote-for2vote-against

It does indeed work with the COD-BO bundle! Picked it up yesterday with no problems and no questions. Then used part of the card to pick up a clearanced God Of War I and II (remastered in HD for PS3) bundle WITH red Dualshock 3 controller, for 35 bucks. Looks and sounds AWESOME! And for 20 bucks less than a controller alone? No brainer! Woot!!! Thanks Carl!

vote-for2vote-against

Just picked up my COD bundle. Coupon still good.

vote-for1vote-against

it worked for COD bundle. Sales guy saw I was buying a PS3 and said buy the COD one as it's same price...then mentioned my coupon states sku # other then COD one, and he said he'd make it work. Awesome deal. I might have to do the Little Big planet + Controller bundle if it's $40....

Just picked up the Black Ops bundle, it worked for me also.

I want one for my birthday and conveniently left this coupon printed by the computer so my wife can see it.

I went to BB today and the sales said the coupon just works for SILVER REWARD MEMBER!!! they say the email should also indicate for silver reward member. but i see everyone here says it works, why is it?

Does anyone know if this unit is backwards compatiable? I been out of the Gaming loop for a while, so I'm a bit lost. This deal might get me back in!

vote-for2vote-against

I finally broke down and bought it today. The plus side is the woman didn't pay attention and gave me the COD bundle with out any issues. The downside it took like 30 minutes for her to ring me up. I actually had to tell her how to do the gift card. She even tried to use the $100 gift card on the PS3, but sadly it didn't work. That would have been nice to use the free $100 gift card on the PS3, but all said and down I walked out paying on $163 plus change (found some gift cards laying around).

@logicprobe: What was the SKU on the God Of War I and II (remastered in HD for PS3) bundle WITH red Dualshock 3?

vote-for1vote-against

I also successfully acquired the CoD bundle with this coupon. The checkout girl didn't seem to notice or care, and had me checked out in under 30 seconds. Good deal.. in fact, amazing deal. I was able to pick up LA Noire and GT5 for only $30 with the gift card, good stuff!

@inin11: I am thinking you got the one sales associate that cared, or the store manager caught the associates allowing this sale through when they shouldn't have, so he had already 'sent out a memo' in regards to it.

vote-for2vote-against

I utilized on the COD bundle this today as well. What a steal! My Best Buy also had the GT5 Bundle which included GT5 and a Blu Ray of 'Grown Ups' Almost wish I got that actually. Never the less, great deal!

@any one it didn't work for (the bundle)... My back up plan was... "I called earlier, the manager said if it rings they will accept it." Its kind of one of those lines you got to sell. I can sell that (mod edit: profanity) real easy. Some people clam up. Plan B was go to the next closest Besy Buy. I however had no prob. May also want to consider going 30 minutes before closing when they just dont give a (mod edit: profanity)!
