BTW: Lego Rock Band is $32.99 (PS3/360/Wii) today at Amazon. ($19.49 for the DS)


Hmm tempting, bet it can go lower. Will wait.

Well, it's a YMMV thing, but...

Old Navy had some copies of Lego Rock Band left over in their warehouses and some Old Navies are selling it for $19.99. In addition, it seems that many other Rock Band titles at Old Navy are $19.99 this weekend, including Rock Band 2, Rock Band Unplugged, and oh, yeah, Beatles Rock Band.

But this is very YMMV. Some stores are discounting Lego and Beatles, others aren't. Still others don't have them at all.

You guys ever use www.cheapassgamer.com ?

It seems pretty decent, though I tend to buy games used from Amazon or ebay.

Richard Basehart,

Where do you think I got the Old Navy info from?

And something else:

Batman: Arkham Asylum
The Beatles Rock Band
Band Hero
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Bakugan Battle Brawlers

Prices will be marked down when you add it to the cart. And free ground shipping.

I tend to use www.slickdeals.net

It gives me a broad mix of deals, and the really good CAG deals always show up on SD. CAG's biggest contribution is its awesome gamestop code: CAG16 for 16% off which is stackable with your 10% membership card. Very convenient.

Amazon has a nice 360 bundle on sale right now.

The Xbox 360 Elite Winter Bundle (with Pure and Lego Batman) is on sale for $269.99 at Amazon. If you buy it with The Beatles: Rock Band (game only) for $49.96, you get a $50 Amazon gift card. The Modern Warfare 2 Elite is also eligible for the promotion, but is not on sale. (It's still $399, but has the bigger HD, an extra controller and CoD: MW2)

So, Target's web site has a coupon for a free1600 Microsoft Points card with the purchase of "Xbox Hardware" (their words, although they probably meant an XBox 360 system). Well, I already gots a 360. so I went and purchased a Guitar Hero World Tour band kit for $88 (a decent price, but not necessarily a great one); after scanning that, they scanned the MS points card, and then the coupon, and it totally worked!

BTW, some people have reported being able to do this with a clearance-priced 360 game as the first item; I have no proof of it, it's YMMV, and I can't openly endorse such a tactic.


In other Target news, they had Singstar: Queen for the PS2 for $7.48. I got that, went to Gamestop and got a brand-new 2-mic Singstar kit for $25, then came home to discover I don't know where the hell my PS2 connection cables went after the move.   :P
