If you weren't worried about gift card then why not get from best buy? GCU price is $47.99+tax and if your answer is because you don't have GCU then buy it! $30 for 20% off any new game no matter how old it is and lasts for 2 years. It just about pays for itself buying 2 games at launch.

No it doesn't, $30 plus $12 savings on 2 games means you'd pay $126 for 2 games. Buying deals like this you'd pay $102 for 2 games. Let's say you buy 10 $60 launch games on gcu, then you pay $510 for 10 games, on this deal you'd be paying $510 for 10 games also, gcu requires buying more than 10 games over 2 years to be cheaper than sales like this, and only buying when the games are full price or not available for any sale or discount.

But you always have to wait for sales like this, right Smilie Instead of waiting I really prefer to pay the $30 and get the game on the release day for 2 years. saves a lot of hassle.

Many games have sales pre-release. Super Mario Odyssey as an example was $48.50 pre release at Walmart and on sale at livingsocial as well from what I see in a quick Google search, sales on games seem to come relatively often. GCU is only good if you buy a lot of games and are still ok with paying near full retail because let's face it $51 a game if you buy 10 games isn't that much of a sale and is only really a sale on Nintendo games. Other games drop in price much faster.

Plus, you get a $10 certificate (500) points for select pre-orders. I have GCU and love it. To each their own I guess.

Most good games have preorder bonuses, and percent off sales are very common for most games (or B2G1 free sometimes). IMO GCU is only worth it if you're not willing to shop around for a deal, and since this is slickdeals, I'd say most of us don't have a problem with that.

Your math is off. Buying $600 worth of games with GCU would only cost you $480, which is still cheaper than your discounted games. The break even point is $150, so if you buy 3 $50-60 games at retail it pays for itself, not counting the extra rewards you get.

Edit: It's worth noting too that the GCU discount stacks with sales and other discounts as well, so a game that's on sale for $50 elsewhere will still be cheaper via GCU if the price is matched at BB.

$480+$30 GCU membership is $30, if GCU was free you'd be right, but then everyone would just do GCU. Also BB doesn't do sales as often or as great which is why deal like this exist. If BB always matched other sales and would offer GCU on top of a competitor sale then yes I'd say it's a good deal for those who buy only a few games a year.

Programs like Best Buy's GCU exist to keep you coming to Best Buy and you're paying in advance for something you may not need. I'd rather reserve the right to not buy any new games for 2 years than be required to buy at least X games from Best Buy to make it worthwhile. If you also buy a lot of games used, are into games that aren't available from Best Buy (older or more obscure), buy most of your stuff during deal seasons and like to shop around (like most Slickdeals folks I'd assume...), or complement your console gaming with Steam or other digital purchases, then GCU may also not be right for a given person.

I'm probably a bad example since I've almost never bought new games and thus never seen the appeal of such programs. I'm just now to that point in life where I can justify spending $50-$60 on a Switch game because I no longer have the time to play the 5 $10 games I could buy instead and it's a better use of my time and money to just buy what I want to play and spend half a year playing it than to keep piling up my backlog with the cheap classics of decades past (that I'll never play).
