We close out the final weekend of the shortest month with a smattering of deals on new games and a helpful way for you to wring more value out of your old ones. Onward, Weekend Coupons!
• Did your out-of-warranty 360 red ring? An Arcade through Dell Small Business is about the cost of a repair and you don't have to hassle with shipping your bricked unit back (at your expense). Get it for $159 with free shipping. Other deals include an Arcade plus a Transport Pack for $200 through Tiger Direct, and an Elite plus a $50 gift card for $300 from Best Buy, a deal that ends tomorrow. [Dealzon]
• This isn't a deal per se but it is a valuable tool. Cheapy's fired up his "Cagomatic" Trade-In Value Tracker, a searchable database providing current trade-in prices for used games at Amazon, Blockbuster, Game Crazy and Gamestop. This is especially handy considering GameStop's 50 percent trade-in bonus campaign that began last Monday and ends March 14. [Cheap Ass Gamer, must be a registered user.]
• Preordering Just Cause 2 through Amazon gets you a $15 credit toward a future video game purchase. It also gets you into a jeep tethered to the back of a 747 as it lands on a highway overpass. OK, no it doesn't. [TechDealDigger]
• Preordering MLB 2K10 from Amazon gets you that game for $4 off ($55.99) plus a $10 video game credit. The game is out Monday.[Dealzon]
• GoGamer.com's latest Madness Sale ends Monday - it includes MAG (PS3), Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) and and Mass Effect 2 (360) for $10, $9, and $5 off their next best, respectively prices. You also get free shipping on orders $25+ with coupon SHIPFREE25. [Dealzon]
• Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC) is $12.49 via Games for Windows LIVE. That is stupefying, down almost to an impulse purchase level. Next best price is $39. Hell, I already have it on PS3 and I don't even own a Windows PC and I might buy it. Sale ends at 10 a.m. U.S. Pacific time on Monday. [Dealzon]
• Target's latest circular lists Dante's Inferno for $20 off. Not sure if that is an MSRP drop (or if it's a discount that includes one) but it's the newest game on their list of sale titles.
As always, smart gamers can find values any day of the week, so if you've run across a deal, share it with us in the comments.
