Thread Details

I just went to my local BB Canton Ohio, TRU was sold out so I didn't really want to go but I went to BB and to my surprise when I was ringing out here is your 25$ gift card as we are matching TRU's offer!!!! I can post a Pic later tonight if needed as I just got to work.

Like I said I think that it is regional because the girl was following a sheet from their "link" which is there inside newsletter.

Thanks to Homepeace for the added Info!

Quote from homepeace :
Best Buy is instituting a company wide price match for the TRU ad for Mario Galaxy for WII + 25$ Gift Card.

Your best buy employee may not be aware as it was posted late closing tuesday night on the employee toolkit

Have your cashier ring up Mario Galaxy and enter promotional SKU # 6867688
It will bundle Mario with a 25$ issued Gift Card.

This is my first post, so dont slaughter me.
BTW TRU most first day sales were pre-orders only, so go to Best Buy (who should have them in stock) and get your copy with the same deal.
Instructions:
1. Go to BB and grab SMG!
2. When Ringing up have Cashier Enter the Following SKU # 6867688 WITH SMG then Total. MUST SCAN GAME FIRST
3. Cashier Totals Up a Pop Up window to instruct for $25 Gift Card.
4. Celebrate new GC.

Added Notes:
Some people have gotten to get this to work @ Circuit.
If a Manager doesn't allow this... Well F@$K them and maybe try a different cashier or store later
People have called Corp. about this and is supposedlly being fixed by them mailing GC's and mailing problem stores.
This should last until Saturday at which the week changes on Sunday

LAST 24 HRS GET IN WHILE YOU CAN!!!!

Note: slickdealers may have added to the no-go list upon negative results from an attempt earlier in the week, but seeing that BB now institutionalized a company wide use, all locations should work...

It should work at ALL best buy as of the evening of 11/13/2007 - Have your Media department employee check toolkit news for their respective game department. It is a COPORATE price match to the TRU ad. ALL stores MUST follow. the bundle sku is 6867688 that generates the gift card. Thanks homepeace for the info.

Added a scan of my receipt...maybe if you have it to show to the stubborn BBs it will help. Good luck! - blo0op

No go at the Novi, Michigan store. I even mentioned this 'link newsletter' and they said it wasn't anything they were doing.

I'll definitely try this later today at the Best Buys around here (zip 23434)... would much rather a BB gift card than a TRU!

Well I think, but can't guarantee but the 2 I know of for sure are doing it Canton Ohio and Chapel Hill Ohio both have TRU within a mile of each other so maybe they are matching it if TRU is close? I dunno but I didn't even ask she just rang it and said we are PMing TRU.

No go in North Austin.
I think it's a new way to offer customers sales without a chance of a price match from the competitor. Both BB and Fry's declared offer to be "a bundle" and they "don't pricematch bundles".

Went in to Eatontown, NJ TRU at 3:00PM, no coupon or anything, they had plenty that weren't pre-orders. Got one with a $25 gift card no problem. Hope this helps anyone in the area.

Think they'll still be doing this deal tomorrow? I think I might go to BB right now just in case.

when i talked to the lady on the phone she said they will pricematch for one item (so you could not by 2) and that they pricematch within 30 days of the ad. I think I would call your local store to be safe but I am going to start going there instead because my tru was telling everyone that they are selling them at 5p.m. sharp, so everybody that is calling is going to be there then and I dont want to fight the crowd.

I created the wiki and updated.

I called BB in Tucson, AZ the one on Broadway and the young operations manager said most definitely. She didn't even hesitate and it appears they already know about TRU gift card and are ready to give out giftcards.

My local BB in Winston-Salem, NC. pm'd the deal this morning. They let me get SMG for $25 instead of fooling with a GC.

I have a friend in Texas that I told to check this out he said when he called Best Buy they said they couldn't do the PM cause TRU is getting a $25 Kick back for each Mario they sell so they are not losing money. Which will also explain why some BB are doing it and some are not. Just wanted to post this so people know.
