I wasn't interesting in the game for $15 so I said no. I checked the web site again and initiated an in-store pickup order. It said my order would be ready in 45 minutes. Went to another employee and told him. He checked the computer again, then went and dug through the games again, this time finding the game - 2 columns over from the CE, in-between the "R" and "S" games. Nice alphabetizing guys.
I'd also talked to their mobile phone folks and got a $5 blu ray coupon. The Rocky Collection was on sale for $22.99 so got it for $17.99 with the coupon.
All told, $24.98 out-the-door for Prototype 2 and 6 movies on blu ray. Used my trade-in credit from AC3 (27.20 from the 50% bonus) to pay for it all and still have 2 bucks left over.
This is where I give the CAG community a big thank you. If not for this place, I wouldn't be aware of the $20 pre-order rewards from BB or a lot of other deals. I pre-ordered AC3, bought it for $47 the week it came out (price match against TRU), got the $20 RZ cert, which I ended up using on Pulse Elite headphones that I price matched and ended up paying like $92 for. I traded in AC3 and got $27.20, which I then turned into Prototype 2 and 6 Rocky blu rays. I'd say it ended up being a heckuva deal. So, thanks guys.
Not trying to criticize you, but don't you think you could've checked around a bit on your own for the game instead of just looking in the "P" section and being like "wtf!?" when it wasn't there?
Any time I go to Best Buy looking for a game, if it isn't in the letter column of where it SHOULD be, I look through A-Z, behind EVERY game they have before I go ask someone
