*Dtoid & CAG readers may already know of this deal...
Some of us, actually most of us, have picked up Super Mario Galaxy
. I picked up my copy on Tuesday. If you were well informed
, then you would've gone to Toys R' Us. They are [still] offering a free $25 gift card with your purchase of the game. I did just that. With the free gift card I helped myself to a copy of Zack and Wiki
. This was all for about $70 with the use of my free gift card.
It gets juicy.
I am also a Best Buy Rewards Zone member. For the holiday season, they are giving their members the option to earn double points if you shop before 11 am on any given day. I took advantage of this and returned my copy of Super Mario Galaxy
to TRU. The next day I went to BB and picked up another copy and received double points. Later that night, I read on CheapAssGamer
how BB is now deal matching TRU. With the help of a trusty SKU (#6867688), now you can pick up the game with a BB gift card. Personally, I would rather have a gift card for BB. After reading other peoples experiences on CAG, I decided to cash in on this.
It gets juicier.
I went to customer service and told them I bought the game the other day. I also told them that BB has started a corporate promotion. The promotion entitles a free $25 gift card with the purchase of Super Mario Galaxy
. The blond at the counter was dumbfounded. It took her about ten minutes of shuffling through this weeks BB ad to figure out the logic of how to handle this. After delegating with her manager and calling TRU, they both came to the register and pressed some buttons. Eventually, they let me know that they will match the deal and give me a gift card for $29.43
. I was like, "WTF!?...sure, okay." Apparently the price matching policy is 10% under the competitor’s price. I didn't think this would factor in. I was pushing for $25. My guess is that the two gals working the register skied uphill and didn't issue me the gift card correctly. I'm not complaining. With my Rewards Zone points, I now have $70 that I can use for Rock Band next week. Win? I believe so.
