    Default Heads up, $5 1600 Xbox Live Points at Best Buy until 10/28

    The Catch? Buy any 360 game and you'll get one 1600 point card for $5 (normally priced $20) They must be on the same reciept
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    Is this in an ad or something? Not doubting you, I'd just like to have something to show at Best Buy (which is a fair drive from my house) when I get there and the saleschump has no idea what I'm talking about.

    It was in the sunday ad from what I read and even CAG.com confirms this as well.

    Just a heads up - This works with the $5 Gears of War pre-order/shirt. That makes a shirt, a pre-order and 1600 MS points for 10 bucks.

    I just read the Sunday ad, and it confirms what has been posted.


    This gives me a reason to buy Phantasy Star Universe at Best Buy. It doesn't say if there is a limit to the amount of cards you can buy on a single purchase, but I assume it is one.

    If not, I am going to load up. Gotta pay for my monthly PSU fees somehow (yes you can buy your PSU guardians lic. through the marketplace )

    I did it with Splinter Cell, and I'm gonna do it again Wednesday for PSU.

    Too bad I pre-ordered my Gears of War at Circuit City for the free faceplate.

    Yup, it is for 1 and 1 per game, I went today, brought up two cards and ridge racer 6... I plan on going tomorrow and doing the same again, and then return the ridge racer 6

    damn no edit.... what I meant to say was, that, when I went up with the two cards, it only recognized one as 4.99, the other was 20... damn.

    Meh. I stopped by Best Buy this evening and all of the Gears of War pre-order packages were conspiciously absent from the display. :P

    Just another confirmation, I got my 1600 points and a Gears of War preorder w/T-shirt for $10 today. Nice.

    To whoever suggested getting the deal and then returning the game, I doubt you'll get much of a deal that way. They're a "package" in the Best Buy system (meaning the price on the card doesn't change until the sale is finalized). If you return the game, the package will likely be undone and the card will be $19.99. You might only get a $5 refund for Ridge Racer, then, and you'll be right back with 1600 points being $19.99.

    Anyone know if this is valid for PRICE MATCHING at somewhere like Circuit City, since it appears in the print ad? My Best Buy is low on games I'd like to purchase, and I've got some 15% off coupons and a gift card to Circuit City.

    gotcha... I was going to try tomorrow... so I will report back.
