Here at the Fanboy, we're always looking out for our reader's financial interests. We could charge you a daily fee to read our articles, like those ridiculous "paper" publications do. We could make you register and send you spam E-mail nineteen times a day. But no! It's all free, kindly bestowed upon you from the bottom of our hearts.
In a similar vein, we thought we should inform you of this oh-so-wonderful deal that Best Buy is offering: buy 2 DS games online, and get another (of equal or lesser value) free! That's right, it's time to go beef up your collection. We recommend some oldies-but-goldies: Sonic Rush, Nintendogs, Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and Meteos are all prime (and perhaps discounted) games that deserve your attention. Heck, you could enjoy two new DS games and get a present for your little brother without having to spend a penny on him. Brilliant!
Some qualifications: you need to have a My Nintendo account (something we'd recommend anyway, as they tend to send out free bonuses every so often) and register your Nintendo DS with the site. Also, be sure to order directly from BestBuy.com. The promotion ends on September 15th, so get buyin'!

i already ordered mine. as of sunday, star fox wouldn't work in the order. if you have any questions est buy and nintendo customer service didn't know anything about the promotion. to the point of having a nintendo phone rep tell me it was a scam before i sent him the link on the nintendo site.

anyone notice the discrepancy between Nintendo and BB's end date on this promotion? BB ends on 9/30th and Nintendo's is 9/15th.
What are you guys gonna order? I want:
Star Fox Command
Lost in Blue
Mario Hoops 3-on-3 (9/12 release date)

Since I already own just about every currently released DS game worth owning, I tried applying this offer to preorders. Unfortunately, only half of the "coming-soon" games are recognized as being valid with the offer. I emailed Best Buy about this problem, and they have yet to respond. If they don't fix it before the offer ends, I'll just order two copies of TLoZ: Phantom Hourglass and some other game that works with the offer that I don't have...

Preorders work as well.
I got Mario Hoops, new Castlevania, and Mega Man ZX for $74 shipped.

I don't get it. I drop in items into the cart, and I see no savings. I am a Nintendo member with a registered DS.
I tried Metroid Prime, Castlevania, Star Fox, and Mario Hoops to no avail (any combination of those 3).

Think it no ill will on our part, but we did not receive your tip. Did you send it in properly? We apologize for the mixup and, as seen in the past, give credit where credit is due for tip submissions.
Thanks for reading!

Preorders don't seem to be counting any more. Are you a member of bestbuy.com as well?
Did you go through the Nintendo.com link to bestbuy?
Some DS games such as the shrek/madagascar combo also don't count.

At the moment it seems the only games that work with the promotion are the top 10 DS games on Best Buy's site. Not very cool. Hopefully they plan on fixing this. This is just too good a deal to only work on a handful of mediocre and bestseller titles.

"I got Mario Hoops, new Castlevania, and Mega Man ZX for $74 shipped"
are you sure about this? I don't see megaman zx on bestbuy's site...

I got Pokemon Ranger, Pokemon Blue Rescue, and Harvest Moon DS - $70.90 shipped.
I didn't have any luck getting Children of Mana, Mario Hoops, or Mario vs. DK with the deal.
I pre-ordered Megaman ZX from Amazon for $26.99. Figured it was an okay deal, no tax and free shipping.
Cosmos, can you keep us up-to-date on whether Best Buy allows the other games in on this offer?
9-05-2006 @ 11:57PM
If they ever friggin' reply, sure, I'll let you guys know :)

Advance Wars: Dual Strike on discount? I could only find one store in my entire city that had it, and it was REALLY expensive!
