GameStop, which last month declared a moratorium on Thanksgiving hours, has pre-empted the holiday by launching a 10-day Black Friday Week sale.
The promotion, which begins today and runs through Sunday, Nov. 29, was designed to remove “the stress of worrying where to find the best deals out of the mix when it comes to customers looking to get the most for their money on Black Friday,” said senior merchandising VP Bob Puzon. “We told our customers we would be offering the best Black Friday deals we ever have, and we are.”
Highlights of the staggered sales event, which includes pre-owned and exclusive “Only at GameStop” promotions, follow:
*$25 off Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs for the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii, now $50;
*$35 off Disney Infinity 2.0 Starter Packs for the Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and 3DS; and
*up to $7 off Disney Infinity 2.0 figures.
