Second pixel junk monster run has been up for 8 mins and still at 50% ....

That’s because it’s now on Pre-Order it seems

CORRECTION: It sold out but home page says "SWITCH LIMITED RUN #4: PIXELJUNK MONSTERS 2 COLLECTOR'S EDITION [PREORDER]" Guess a typo

Awwww....that is terrible news. I preferred Best Buy's program over Amazon's. I love getting Collector's Editions , Amiibos, and older games with the 20% discount in addition to the points

Wow, that’s awful! It’s an incredible program. I’m just glad I signed up before it was ended. Guess I really need to abuse it over the next two years

@MrCIB they just asked me about signing up last week and I declined ... wish I'd said yes now lol

Did anyone have any issues with their Human Fall Flat/Flame in the Flood order? You see I ordered them together and received them the other day. Today I got the games again. I only purchased one set that I recall. No clue what happened or why I have two of each game.

Edit: Double checked my order with them...double checked my statements...and I only ordered the combo pack once. Unless I completely overlooked something I just got another set for free. Part of me says cool ...the other says that's not cool.

Check your statements or PayPal, however you paid for it. Might have been a misclick?

As for my ordeal, I'm sorry folks, but I had to email them and explain the situation. I honestly feel bad knowing someone accidentally shipped me a second order. I have a conscience and it just bugs me. I even asked them if there was anything I could do, especially since I live in the US and they're in Great Britain I think?

If they want me to ship it back, I'm fine with that. Not to sound rude, but hopefully this will help them fix future shipping issues. As far as I know they're new so yeah, there will be mess ups...just hoping with my letting them know they'll look into it and do what needs to be done so this won't happen down the road.

I'll let everyone know what they say when they reply. Hopefully we can figure something together and they don't take a loss.

darn, this is awful news...This was the only thing getting me in the store at bestbuy, and surprisingly, it has gotten me to buy more stuff from them. I've bought 3 switch consoles in total from them(1 was a gift, another because I sold my first one to a friend). Got me also buying a fair number of various items like headphones. However I don't think I will ever make the trek to bestbuy if they end GCU. I don't want to give gamestop my patronage, so I may have to use amazon prime from my friends again(I just don't care to spend $120 a year for 2 day shipping that will almost never make a difference for me, nor do I care about the other prime perks). Looks like Target will be my new place to go since Toys R Us got screwed over by a leveraged buyout. Man, my options are getting uncomfortably slim.

Anyone know of any CC rewards that are suited towards gamers that is worth it? heh...

@The_Legend77 honestly since they are UK based they will probably tell you to keep them. Cost of shipping and all... I mean, shoot, I'll buy em off you if that happens(including cost of shipping). Part of the reason I didn't want to get those games was just shipping.

It does for sure haha. I kept telling myself, "Next time, you can sign up next time." At least there's still Prime benefits (on most games) for those of us with memberships.

@The_Legend77 I'm actually still waiting on my copy of Flame in the Flood. "Shipped" May 5th, given to carrier May 9th, and it's been roaming around Los Angeles since May 14th (roughly). Really hope SRG offers FedEx or UPS shipping in the future, I'd gladly pay a few more bucks to prevent games getting stuck (and possibly damaged) in limbo with the USPS.

hmmmm sounds fishy. I had a package I sent stuck at L.A. for literally 2 weeks, figured someone stole it, but suddenly it processed. I don't use USPS anymore for that and other reasons. I think something about LA they are just totally incompetent.

@The_Legend77 If you feel guilty having them around I’ll gladly give them a good home. Especially if you don’t charge scalpers rates. Lol.

That's what I thought, too, sounding fishy. I signed up for text alerts, and I've gotten "In Transit to Next Facility" messages the 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th ... no updates today. L.A. is screwy ... I'm in CO (3 states away), I can't imagine it taking more than a couple of days to get from L.A. to Denver to my house lol.

Bad News.... Seems Best Buy GCU will be going away

This absolutely does NOT surprise me!!! I've been saying this from the moment I joined up - there is absolutely NO WAY Best Buy isn't losing money, hand over fist with this program. It's just simply not possible!! I'm pretty sure I had read somewhere, that the average retailer makes about $10-$15 on a full price ($60-$70) game... ...and that profit is completely gone, with the 20% discount. And that $35 fee for TWO YEARS?!?!?! LOL!!! I saved that much on my FIRST ORDER!!

I'm willing to bet some muckity-muck executive saw what Amazon was offering and said, "WE NEED TO DO THIS!!!!" - except they didn't do the proper investigation as how it would ultimately work and what the costs are, and they went a step too far. Amazon only allows their 20% discount on pre-orders (and the first few weeks after release), and that is IT! And they RARELY offer the 20% on special edition games. With the GCU, if a game was released 5 years ago (and they have it in stock, of course) - so long as I buy the "New" version, I'm saving 20% (on top of whatever sale price, the game has already been reduced to). Amazon also happens to sell everything else on earth, which allows them to recoup that loss as consumers buy things other than video games - Best Buy is limited to electronics, and electronics only.

I'm SINCERELY disappointed that they're discontinuing it - but I'm happy as hell that they're at least honoring the members who already paid in (I still have a year and a half left!). And @twelvestar - I am shocked you hadn't joined GCU months ago, I know it's been discussed in this thread since the beginning. If you are buying more than one or two games a month, than you would be INSANE to not join that club - I feel for you, man...

I know man, I know. You've been an ardent supporter of the GCU for a long time now. I kept justifying saving the $30-$35 for the next game purchase... really kicking myself right now for being cheap lol. (Probably like most people) I didn't think they'd do away with the program anytime soon. Hard lesson learned, for sure.

LOL!!! Yeah - it's always the hindsight thing, I agree!! I remember when I first purchased it (and I just looked back - it was actually only $30 at the time), and I remember wavering for a bit myself thinking, "$30??? Geez - that's nearly the cost of a new game! I'm going to spend that and get nothing?!?!?".

But I finally said screw it, bought in, and immediately purchased NBA 2k18 Legend edition (saving $20) and at least felt like I had already nearly covered the entire investment in that one purchase, so I felt much better about it!!

...and yeah - about that GCU, I now notice they no longer show the "GCU Price" on the game pages anymore. I got nervous for a minute, thinking it was totally gone!!!!

But then I added a game to my cart, and saw the discount applied... ...WHEW!!!!

I literally just bought like 5 games on bestbuy now. haha. I've got about 8 months left personally. The big plus for me getting it in the first place was 1. it works on special editions and 2. it works for amiibo. Amazon axed their %20 discount for both some time ago. As someone who really liked amiibo(something tells me nintendo is not going to be doing amiibo anymore) this was a god send too.

Also be sure to pick up little dragon cafe special edition and octopath traveler special edition on bestbuy if you haven't already!
