GameStop is the most ubiquitous games retailer in the US, but it’s not the only store selling games, consoles, and accessories at attractive discounts for Black Friday 2018. It’s Thanksgiving now, and although Black Friday technically begins tomorrow, sales at big retailers like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy are rolling in, and direct sales through platforms like PSN, Xbox Live, and the Switch Eshop provide further options. A lot of these deals are pretty competitive, but depending on what you’re after, GameStop could have a deal or two for you consider before all the sales get underway. Most significantly, it’s the only place we’ve seen so far with plans to discount Fallout 76, which only just released.
The deals on the slides ahead are all for new products, but we’re talking about GameStop here, so let’s quickly see what deals it has in store for its pre-owned inventory. There are plenty of great games in used condition for under $10, including: Batman: Arkham Knight ($7), Fallout 4 on Xbox One ($9), Final Fantasy XV on PS4 ($8), Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PS4 ($7), Titanfall 2 ($7), and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End ($7).
Members of GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards program that purchase any item between Nov. 22 and Nov. 25 will also be treated to a buy-two-get-one-free coupon that goes live on Dec. 3. If you get one, act fast: it only lasts until Dec. 9.
If, however, you are looking for slightly older used games, you can take advantage of a similar deal between Nov. 22 and Nov. 25. During that time, all pre-owned Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, DS, Wii U, and Vita games will qualify for a buy-two-get-one deal.
And lastly, a deal that no other retailer is close to matching: GameStop will mail a rebate in the form of a $70 pre-paid Visa card to anyone who purchases a used 4GB Xbox 360 Slim console from a retail GameStop location on Nov. 22 or 23, completely covering the sales price. This practically-free Xbox 360 deal is only good while supplies last!
