I was reading GAF and they were talking about how to get 2000 Wii Points for $15 everytime.
The Best Buy Gamer Gift card trick works on Wii Points and MS points, so that's $5.00 off the $20.00 cards in store.
If you don't know how to do it, here's a rough rundown:
Go to Best Buy and look for the gift cards.
Find the "Gamers Gift Card" - it's in a CD Jewel case.
Put a few bucks on it. I usually do $10.00, but some put $5.00 or whatever.
Take the gift card out of the case. On the paper that the gift card is stuck to is a coupon for $5.00 off any game $19.99 or higher. Tear that out.
Go back and get the card you want, bring it to the register and give them the $5.00 off coupon. Pay the remaining balance with the amount on the gift card plus
I said I was gonna get some VC games and this is how I'm gonna finance those purchases. But you might as well just put $15.74* on the Gamers Gift Card and then just pay for the 2000 Wii points with that. no need for any other cash or credit.
$15.74 = that total for the purchase after tax is applied.

They ask "How Much" and I say the amount ($15.74 if I'm buying a $20 points card, for example). They will usually look at me funny due to the odd amount but they have never said anything. Then I say I want this item on the second transaction, they ring it up and say $20.99 (after tax). I open the GGC and give them the coupon. They apply it. Then they say "The total is now. $15.74.." I can see the realization dawn on their faces that I have just gamed the system. I hand them the gift card and walk out.
Why haven't we known about this before? This all seems too easy.
