eightbit Posted August 26, 2018 Share Posted August 26, 2018 (edited) So Mario Kart 8 is currently on sale on Bestbuy.com for $44.99. Since I have the GCU membership my cost ends up being $35.99. So today I figured instead of ordering it online I would just go to a local store and pick it up. Well, when I went to the store it was $59.99 (not on sale at all) and my GCU took the price down to $47.99. I am not sure why the online sale did not coincide with the in store price. They always used to. Its not like Bestbuy.com is a "different entity" than the store itself (like Walmart claims) so I dunno. The girl at Best Buy also did not seem to know anything about how the gamer club works...or worked. She tried to tell me that the club was "ending" at the end of this month for EVERYBODY. No, it ended some time ago, and no, they have to honor my GCU membership until it expires. She also tried to tell me that I could not combine my GCU 20% savings with sale items. Again, no. I can (and continue to) use the GCU with on sale items as well as clearance stuff. Every time I attempt to use my Gamer Club membership in store (which is good for me until 4/2020) I get the feeling they just hate that I am using it. I am made to feel like I am some dirtbag getting over on them and getting the game for so much less. So be it. I will be that dirtbag right up until 4/2020. They are the ones that created a club that ended up losing money. All I did was pay for a membership on what looked like (and really is) an unbelievable deal. In the end, I went home and ordered Mario Kart 8 for the $35.99 with free shipping and it will be here on Wed. When this GCU membership ends so do by Best Buy purchases.
