    Best Deals of the Week

    Well, there aren't a ton of good deals this week, but here
    we go.

    Maximo (PS2) - $14.99 at Best Buy
    Tiger Woods 2003 (GC) - $24.99 at Circuit City
    Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (GBA) - $19.99 at CC

    - Get a $50 Gift Card if you purchase a Gamecube and any two games priced $19.99 or more at Target

    Combine this deal at Target with the Nintendo's deal that gives you a free game with the purchase of a Gamecube starting on Feb 9th (via pricematch later) and you get 3 Games for your Gamecube, plus a $50 gift card for as little as $189.99. That's a pretty good deal in my book.

    Well, have a great week all.

    Glen

    Thanks as always for this Glen!

    I highly recommend Skies of Arcadia, it's just great. If you're into golf at all, the Tiger Woods game for the GC is a good deal at that price.

    I'm really debating Tiger Woods, as I really got into that style of swing in Swingerz Golf.

    It'll be tough not to go out and buy that one this week.

    I'm holding off on SoAL, as I'm half way through the DC version... and it would seem silly to have the same game twice. Even with the added things in the GC version.

    You're killing me Ken. I went to my Sam's twice last week and they had a very minimal Gamecube selection.

    I checked out the Target deal on the Gamecube tonight. It is not nearly the bargain it appears to be. I have been waiting to buy a Gamecube when it's price came down to $99. The deal at Target gives you a $50 gift card when you buy a Gamecube with 2 games over $19.99. However, Target no longer price matches on games. This would not be a problem if their prices were in line with other retailers. They are NOT! For example, Eternal Darkness is $49.99 at Target and $19.99 at Best Buy right in the same plaza. No wonder they can offer the $50 gift card. The cheapest game I saw I would want to buy would be Rogue Squad.which they sell for $29.99. I can get that at Best Buy and elsewhere for $19.99. Looks like I'll be waiting for the next price drop.

    Noticed price drops/low prices on several Gamecube games at SamGoody.com (may have similar drops/prices for other systems, not sure).

    As noted in another thread in this forum, they've also got a promo going on: Free shipping PLUS 10% off with purchase of 2 items (games, movies, music etc.).

    There's also a code ("849") for $5 off on $30 purchase that I used successfully on an order for 2 games, making my total due $30.98 for Die Hard and Agent Under Fire.

    Here are some of the games I saw (prices before any discount):

    Sega Soccer Slam $19.99
    Die Hard: Vendetta $19.99
    007: Agent Under Fire $19.99
    Pac Man World 2 $19.99
    Blood Omen 2 $19.99
    Madden 2002 $9.99
    FIFA Soccer 2002 $9.99
    NFL Blitz 2002 $9.99
    NHL Hitz 2002 $9.99
    All Star Baseball 2002 $9.99
    NCAA Football 2003 $19.99
    2002 FIFA World Cup $19.99
    NFL 2K3 $19.99
    Cel Damage $9.99

    Bummer, Soccer Slam is listed as unavailable. I would have picked that up as well as Pac Man World 2 for my wife.

    Oh, well.

    Hey thanks for the KBKids info. I don't think I can pass up Quantum Redshift at that price...some other good bargains there too.

    So that's only for kbkids online site, and not at their B&M store, right?

    TIA!

    I found several XBOX titles at my local Sams Club that surprised me for the price: $29.87. Unfortunately, the only one that stuck to my mind was Tony Hawk 4. Is that a good price for it??

    Thx,
    Roy C.

    I do believe that is only for their site. I went to a KB B&M today and didn't see most of those prices.

    Edit: Ended up purchasing Smuggler's Run for the Gamecube. There is free shipping on that one as well, so for $15, I didn't think I could go wrong.

    Glen

    BTW, I think $30 is a pretty good deal for TH4, but I would rather have it for the PS2 as that has online play.
