If you use Visa Checkout at Best Buy (a Visa card is, oddly enough, not required), you can save $25 off of every $100 order. This also stacks with Gamers Club Unlocked, which already gives you 20% off of every sealed game (and any pre-orders). This is a REALLY GOOD DEAL, people. Physical Nintendo games hold their value very well. And it ends tomorrow. So stock up on all of your Switch shit for the whole year while you can! The $30 GCU membership may even immediately pay for itself.
I made five orders.
Order #1: Zelda: BOTW Splatoon 2 $10 PSN
Order #2: Super Bomberman R Puyo Puyo Tetris Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+
Order #3: Grey Joy Cons Bravely Second
Order #4: 1-2-Switch Super Mario Odyssey God of War III Remastered (gift)
Order #5: Mario Kart 8 DX ARMS $10 PSN
TOTAL DAMAGE: $430! (About $85 per order.) Stupid Illinois state tax!
@Hero_Of_Hyrule OH, you're referring to New Super Luigi U. Yeah, I think it'll probably appreciate. Unless Gamestop randomly prints more copies, or something, like with Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade.
I have a whole bag of stuff to sell. I kind of just want to get it out of my house. So lazy, though...
Making an order now for some Amiibo that I still haven't bought which are most the early Super Mario line and the Alternate Splatoon colors. I'm getting closer and closer to a complete collection.
Also Best Buy has some of the earlier "rare" ones like Gold Mario, Lucina, Pit, etc., so hop on this while you can if you need to fill out some spots in your amiibo collection.
AND CHECK THIS OUT!
The Skylanders Superchargers Pack for Wii U is only $3.99 with GCU. That's insane. So if you care about Skylanders or want that Donkey Kong amiibo/skylanders crossover thing, now is your best deal for it.
EDIT: Wanted to get my Breath of the Wild pre-order as a part of that discount action, but unfortunately that means that it would arrive the next Friday rather than launch day. So in trying to get a bigger discount, I just doomed myself to trying to get the game from a store on launch day rather than having it shipped to me. Oh well... I'm not too worried about there not being enough copies of the game at launch, especially around my area since it's rural.
Thanks for the heads up! We went out to get one of them Gamer Club Card things just now, so hopefully we won't miss the extra sale bit. Seems like it says it lasts until the 25th? Of course, even if we do miss it, the Gamer Club makes brand new Switch games $48, so that's pretty spectacular.
Oh, regarding good deals, GameStop has a surprisingly good one this week for those of you who've got a Switch preorder there. You can get an extra $20 credit for trading in a Wii U or 3DS towards a Switch preorder, or extra $30 credit if you're part of their own Gamer Club program thing.
The Wii only gives $20 on its own, but I think you can get $35 if your Wiimote is a Wii Motion+. And both those get the extra 20 or $30.
The real deal is the 3DS. Trading in the original will get a surprising $90, plus the bonus 20 or $30.
You can also get an extra 50 or $75 towards trading in a Wii U. But don't trade in your Wii U!
I mainly thought the 3DS deal was good, especially for such an old system. But this is all for store credit, and it expires after tomorrow!
Yes, also includes "selected" Amiibo. I was there yesterday, though it was unclear if the new BOTW Amiibo counted.
Before I spent way more than I wanted to, I put back the other 2 I picked up and said "thank you!" and walked out with my new Zelda one. Good enough for me (I'll get those SMB Series 2 ones later on / soonish).
