Snag Guitar Hero II for $10 less

360 Fanboy reader, Nitin, sends us word that he received a coupon from Best Buy offering $10 off games and accessory purchases of $75 dollars or more. Now, it just so happens that Guitar Hero II will set you back 90 clams when it debuts on Arpil 3rd, and it just so happens that the Best Buy coupon expires on April 4th. You see where we're going with this? Of course, there is one possible caveat. According to the fine print, the coupon doesn't include video game hardware. Now, we're pretty sure that refers to actual consoles, but don't blame us if the guy behind the counter says the guitar counts as hardware.

At any rate, you were going to pick up GHII anyway, right? You might as well try and save 10 bucks.

[Thanks, Nitin]

1. Getting it straight from Red Octane with a gig bag for the guitar for 90 bucks.

2. One look at Best Buy's Xbox 360 page clearly lists all controllers under the Accessories category. Looks like this will work wonderfully, and any argument a cashier tried making would be null and void by their own website.

3. Yea I think hardware is only the Console, everything else is accessories.

5. Or you can STILL get it for ten bucks less and cheap 2nd day air from costco.com http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11197563&whse=BC&Ne=4000000&N=4018947&Mo=57&pos=7&No=9&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&cat=60313&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&Sp=C&ec=&topnav=

7. There is a locally owned game store in my home town (yes, they still do exists!), so I always give them first dibs at my hard earned cash when it comes to games.
I’m going to pre-order a copy from them. Stick it to the man!

8. if you buy from costco, yes its for 79.99 + they charge you 8 bucks for shipping and you get it on the 5th(2nd day shipping), not on the 3rd. the deal is the best deal i'v found so far unless you actually have a costco nearby and then you can pick it up for 79.99 (just like you could with the coupon i posted)

Posted at 8:07PM on Mar 22nd 2007 by Nitin

9. Considering the coupon clearly states games and accessories, and the only two categories GHII could be in are games or accessories, the coupon will definitely work.

And yes, Costco's the same deal right off the bat, but I have a Reward Zone certificate, so this combined with this I'll get it for $75.

10. I purchased my copy of Guitar Hero II from Best Buy in Honolulu,Hi. I had a coupon for $10 when you purchase $75+ in games and accessories (which I received through e-mail and I believe Xbox360Fanboy featured said coupon). When I was at the register I purchased the game and handed the coupon over. It wasn't until I had already left (I was in a hurry to be able to get to class on time) that I noticed that the price rung up was suspiciously high. When I went over the receipt I saw that they had only deducted $5 from the game. I returned to the store and explained that the coupon says "$10 off". I was told that in order to get my discount I would have had to buy games AND accessories, not either or. But I showed that with the wording of the coupon's terms and conditions has no mention of having to buy both. After explaining the confusion with the language on the coupon I received $5 back. Anyone else had the same problem when using the coupon at their local Best Buy?
