Check out what Gamers Club Unlocked has to offer:

Q: What are the benefits of My Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked?

A: Our Gamers Club Unlocked benefits have been upgraded.

•Get 2x base points on new video game software, digital content, and game accessories
•Get 2 points for every dollar when you trade-in games

•10% off pre-owned games
•Buy two, get the third free on pre-owned games via special welcome coupon
•Save 50% on a new strategy guide via special welcome coupon
Q: How much does the My Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked membership cost?
A: Purchasing the membership by itself costs $119.99 for 2-years of membership. But, if you are currently a member, you get these new benefits for as long as your membership lasts.


Q: What changes were made to Gamers Club Unlocked?
A: We revised the program to make it even more valuable to our members. The new benefit of getting 20% off new video games (excluding digital) drives unprecedented value to our Unlocked members. To make way for this new benefit, we are discontinuing offering @ Gamer to new members. Current members will receive @ Gamer until their membership expires, or until May 2014.

Q: How do I join Gamers Club Unlocked?
A: Currently, membership enrollment is available in-store only; please see an in-store specialist for details on becoming a member.

Q: If I am already an Unlocked member, do I still receive the old benefits?
A: Yes, you get all of the great benefits you have come to love. However, you will also get 20% off new video games.

Q: Once I am a member of Gamers Club Unlocked, is there a limit to how many new video games I can buy with my 20% discount?
A: Yes. Members are limited to three copies of a new (i.e. not pre-owned) gaming software title per platform, per year. Collector's and Limited Editions count toward that title limit. Game of the Year editions, usually released much later including additional content do not count toward that limit but would essentially start as a separate game and limit

Q: Does the 20% off only apply to new games on one console?
A: Nope, it applies to all new video games, including PC (with the exclusion of digital). The more games you buy, the more money you save. Game on.

Q: You've run promotions in the past where if you pre-order and purchase certain games at Best Buy you get $10 in reward certificates…Do those offers, and others like it also apply with the 20% discount on new video games?

A: Current offers stack atop one another. That is to say, if you are eligible for reward certificates as a part of a promotion, you will get your 20% savings, and get the reward certificate too. Here's an example:

Josh pre-ordered Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One, and is therefore eligible for $10 in reward certificates as a My Best Buy member. Josh becomes a Gamers Club Unlocked member before he picks up his copy of Call of Duty Ghosts for Xbox One. Josh gets 20% off his copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One, and will receive $10 in reward certificates for successfully completing the other $10 reward certificate promotion. In this instance, Josh got $22 worth of benefits in one transaction. Not bad for a $60 game.

Q: If I have already pre-ordered games, will the 20% off be applied to those orders?
A: This will depend on whether you placed these pre-orders in-store or through BestBuy.com

•In-Store:
If you pre-ordered in-store, you will receive the 20% off benefit as long as you are an active Gamers Club Unlocked member when you pick up your pre-order. You will need to ensure your My Best Buy account is added to the purchase when the game is picked up.

•BestBuy.com:
If you pre-ordered on BestBuy.com for either Store Pickup or shipping, we are not able to add this benefit to your existing order. You will need to either cancel and re-do your pre-order or return and repurchase the game once it is fulfilled to get the 20% off. To receive this benefit going forward, you will need to ensure that you are signed in to your BestBuy.com account when you place an order and have your My Best Buy account linked to your BestBuy.com account.
Q: Can the 20% off benefit be combined with a price match?
A: You would receive either the price match or 20% off. You would not be able to receive 20% off of a matched price.


Q: Does the 20% off new video games come as a certificate, gift card, or other back end rebate?
A: You get 20% off immediately when you buy your new games. Other promotions may deliver benefits on the back end, but not your 20% off.

Q: Can I still sign-up for an unpaid Gamers Club membership?
A: Yes, joining Gamers Club is free, and you can do so in-store.

yes. 3 copies per game per platform. Ik it seems like a lot, but the 20% makes for some profitable flips at times. I have 2 accounts, and maxed out on Madden copies when Walmart was paying me $60 for every $37 copy from BB last week.


they also limit you to 3 trade ins per title…and that's where my question lies:

If I trade 3 copies of XB1 COD Ghosts under my account, can I trade 3 more in using my wife's account, or does the fact that the are taking my DL # tie it all together and tell them I am circumventing the limit?

buy destiny again and return it with your old receipt to be safe?

op, Best Buy starts their weekly ads on sundays, so that would mean the actual start date is 10/26, not 10/27

so can we buy a game, get the membership, then return said game?

Not in the market for any current games, but $30 for that is a steal!
