Add more coupons/product diversity to the @gamer magazine

@Gamer is a great magazine with great coupons & it's come along way from where it started but there's no reason to get stale/complacent.

Because of the limited # of coupons(8) whole systems get completely ignored & others are severly limited but BB sells all the systems so it makes no sense not to promote them all. My solution is simple

1-Increase the total # of coupons to 18-20.

2-Make sure there's a coupon that can attract any gaming customer so they feel there's value ever month even when there's a month that they're not interested in anything.

3-Expand the coupons to deals for systems(Hardware) to help spur more GCU memberships.


Here's an sample monthly breakdown

3-4 Coupons dedicated to present gen HD systems(PS3/X360/Wii)

3-4 Coupons dedicated to new gen systems (WiiU/PS4/X720)

3-4 Coupons dedicated to PS Vita handheld(this will help increase sales of the vita & software)

3-4 Coupons dedicated to 3DS handheld

3-4 Coupons dedicated to PC games(severly overlooked segment in GC/GCU)

3-4 Coupons dedicated towards used games, accessories, "other" gaming related items & consoles.


You also might wanna consider added a "special" coupon that can be used universally w/an  extended valid period or doesn't expire at all. This will give value to previous outdated mags full of expired coupons which will just get recycled. Just make sure the coupon has deals that are not offset by the $5-$10 mag price.

I can't agree more than when in business it is never a good idea to become complacent; I should say constant change can also hurt a business. I guess there is a middle ground we should be striving for. I'm sure this idea would be well received by our customers if implemented. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Remember to vote for an idea if you like it.

I like it I remember wanting to use two or more coupons but I can't because my Bestbuy store. Didn't have the games I wanted to buy so I can't use them and I really wanted them to and I was out of luck

I agree with this very much. Since the magizine seems to run bi-montly, at least the Jan-Feb is, when some systems don't recieve any coupons it kind of makes me feel left out. I believe the Vita needs a lot more love in this regard because it is a wonderful system and sales should be pushed with the help of coupons. The full system idea for coupons is excellent and hopefully this gets looked at by the editors of this wonderful magizine. The great deals is what keeps me reading and subscribed, but Vita and other systems need some love too.

Would love to see at least one coupon for a Vita game!

I agree wholeheartedly. I stopped being a member because of the awful coupons that have been featured in the magazine.

Best Buy needs to hire Enuf.

He already does a ton of work for them. if it wasn't for him, I'd probably have missed a majority of the great deals that have come out in the past year.

just saw the coupons for May's magazine and literally laughed because they were so bad.  One more month of bad coupons and I will not be renewing my membership in July.

 I agree with the vita / 3ds coupons  handhelds could use some love.


 The coupons are random, some have been quite good, hitman and sleeping dogs personally.


 The leaked coupons are looking to be worse than previous RZ offers, and current other retailer's offerings.

I agree on the 3ds front. I'm a 3DS owner, and it's hard to see my Gamer Coupons go to waste when none of them apply to my system.. Please, please add some, it will bring me back to BBGamerClub over Gamestop
