Get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for 99 Pence in UK

GameStop is running a deal where you can score MW3 for only 99 pence. Insane? I think so, seeing as what is required made me chuckle.

How it all works:

1: You order Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 from GameStop (UK) and return BF3 in the prepaid envelope before MW3 launches; you’ll be refunded the money (save for 99p), and it’s yours.

Crazy? Smart marketing? Did your jaw just drop to the floor like mine did in shock?

They are also running another deal where you can get MW3 50% off.

    No idea why but I found that this funny.

    Is this actually real? I couldn’t find it on their website anymore, and it seems like it would be against some rule somewhere.

    So I gotta buy both games for 120. Then return the 1st one and I get a refund of 119.01 back? That’s stupid stupid stupid! But I’m sure and Indian will do it they’re mad cheap XD

    What? Why would someone do that?

    This is a very low blow imo.

    @darklurkr23 it sounds more like you pay $59,99 and then get a refund of $59,00, but this is really weird… why would a retailer do that? It sounds like there’s something behind it… (MW $$$ paying to take out BF3 copies of the market perhaps)

    They are scared of the competition.

    so this is like a mail-in rebate huh?

    I’m sorry, I still just don’t believe that. The hit they would take is completely unrealistic. Who in their right mind wouldn’t do the deal? I’m not buying it.
