GameStop's - Buy 2 Used, Get 1 Free Sale!


Coffee Beans
     This is one of GameStop's occasional video game sales that I wish I could take advantage of.  GameStop stores and GameStop.com are running a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" sale "on all in-stock pre-owned products". The sale is happening right now, Thanksgiving Day(Happy Thanksgiving!), through this Sunday, November 27.
     The sale includes pre-owned games for the 3DS, DS, PS3, PSP, Wii, and Xbox 360 systems. If you see any games worth grabbing that you think are too great to pass up, leave a comment letting us know(causing me further torture, because I will resist).

     You can browse the online selection of games they are offering, HERE, Buy any 2 pre-owned games get 1 free at GameStop.com!

  1. Lets all torture Coffee with all the games we're getting. wooot!

    Not a bad deal really. There are a handful of 3DS games there that I either have or are interested in and while the individual prices really aren't great, you could save a bit if you don't mind used and plan to pick up 3 games.

    Though some titles like Super Mario 3D Land, LoZ OOT, SSFIV are or can be cheaper most of the time. (is it really worth just a few bucks cheaper for used vs new?)

    If I were to jump in it might be with SSFIV, DoA: Dimensions and Cave Story 3D. $61 vs $88 new. (amazon)

  2. I tend to stay away from GameStop unless it is for a niche game that isn't available at Best Buy (I'm a Rewards member, so I get points for each purchase which in turn gives me gift certificates). I don't like most of GS' business practices.

    I literally just almost caved on this deal...http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Metroid%3...I

    I resisted somehow.........................................

    As for the savings, it always depends on new versus used. I think you might save even more off of used games if you are a GameStop member, kind of like Best Buy's Rewards program.If you can save $10 each on a new game, and you get three games, I would say saving $30 is worth it.

    @superphillip32:
    Yea, my local GameStop stores seem to have a pretty decent used selection, and some of the games in the used selections can be hard to find new in stores now, so that's always a benefit of GameStop.While Best Buy is now doing used titles as well, their selection is usually of the more popular titles from what I have seen.

    As for not liking business practices, I used to be a Best Buy employee, so I had some of my own nitpickings with the company...

    Thank you both for leaving feedback!

  4. Coffee, I don't know how you resisted that one; it puts my $12 deal at target to shame!!

    But yeah, $30 off isn't bad at all considering some of those (looking at 3DS) titles were recent releases. I didn't look at Wii or any other titles as they don't apply right now.

    I think for GS you may be right with being a member and I'm sure good timing also helps. When browsing in-store I've been very unimpressed with the pricing. Perhaps that says more about how much I watch prices on amazon.

    More on this...LATER!

    As for GS, members of their program get an additional 10% off used prices, so it's usually about $10 off new game prices, which isn't too shabby, especially if you buy a lot of games each year. 10 games, saving $10 each = $100.

  6. @coffee - I fall into that last category you mentioned in your last post - and with all of the games I buy, yeah... it works out pretty well. I actually avoided this sale this weekend. I did do some Black Friday shopping for the kids in terms of game stuff, and I'm pretty sure my wife picked up a few things for me, but I've actually held off from making many purchases of late.
