Which online stores do you buy video games at?

Post by Lori on Thu Dec 08, 2011 8:38 am

Walmart? Gamestop? It's been so long since I've bought one, I can't even remember. But after I decide where they're available comes the exhausting process of deciding whether to shop through MyPoints, Ebates, Giveback, Discover.... yikes. I'm looking for Forza Motorsports 4 and/or Zelda: Skyward Sword.

I had 4 video games on my list to get... best deal was thru Amazon (I checked all stores thru MP)... a couple of days later, got an email from Amazon that one of the games had been canceled... well the game wasn't (Just Dance for xBox), but it was not Amazon, another seller on Amazon...

So back to square one... I again searched thru MPs and found that Walmart had it for $39, $10 less than I originally saw it (rollback or sale, not sure)... so hurry over to my local Walmart (3 minutes away) and yes they had it, but shelf price was $49 and as always, one clerk handing the entire department and she was busy.

So home I went, went online via MP, ordered it -- not to be shipped to the store, but instore... 4 hours later, got the email saying it was ready for pick up... another trip to WM but in and out in like 5 minutes.. Just Dance in hand.

And got 320 MPs as that day, it was 8 MPs per dollar!

Walmart /mypoints, or Gamestop/easier to return. I buy alot of video games, and Amazon has some good deals, but usually only on preorder

I checked Walmart and Target online. Their prices are great, but it says that they're sold out online. So I'm unable to order online at all, and would have to go to my store and buy. Same with the game they have at Target - they say they're sold out online so you'd have to go to your local store. I wonder if this is a ploy to get people off their asses and into the stores.
