Saw $10 on the games on the list and get 800 reward points on selected titles as well. 1600 if you're part of the gamers club. Only until the 7th though.

Looks like I'll be making another trip there soon and I was just there last night, as well as canceling some preorders at EB Games

1600 points? Can anyone confirm that?

1600 if you're part of the gamers club. It makes sense logically considering you get double for every point

I would love to be wrong, but I would guess the double points only applies on the points from the purchase. Meaning 120 points for a $60 title. Have not been to to BB myself to check, here's hoping I'm wrong.

I hope you're wrong although I'm pretty sure I've seen somewhere that said 800 points for a preorder, 1600 for a gamers club member

Was it $10 off plus 1600 points? That would be a $30 savings and I would buy way too many games.

If it's too good to be true it probably is.

It's most likely double points on the purchase itself. The 800 points itself is a promotion.

So you'd get 100RZP instead of 50.

I want to pre-order AssCreedLib and Castlevania Mirror, but their pages are missing. 25% off, plus 800 RZ points.

What I'd like to preorder is The Last of Us but it's not even listed. Hopefully they add it to the sale.

I wonder if they will give 800 RZ points for all titles. In the advert it does say select titles (top of the webpage). It might just be the $10 off which is still a good deal.

They updated the available titles to include many E3 announced games, but all are ten dollars off, no 800 bonus points. At this point Future Shop is the better deal on many of the new games.

Still no The Last of Us!

I don't think they will give $20 off a $40 title, unless they are crazy.

They don't give 800RZP for every title but under the video game it says if you will get 800RZP.

How big is the list for Future Shop BTW?

You don't keep $20 in your pocket. Just $10 off, plus you get $10 worth of RZ points. You still have to pay for the tax on the reminder $30. BB has offered 800 points on 3DS games before, it's not that much of a stretch if they decide to give 800 RZ points later on, even if you have the $10 off E3 thing.

I'm probably going to preorder everything at bestbuy that has the 800 points and then every that doesn't at futureshop.

Man bestbuy should get their stuff together. I went in there today to preorder Sleeping Dogs but it was not available in their computers, even though they lots of those preorder cards hanging up. I was only able to preorder Halo 4. I didn't even bother asking for Hitman and other games that I wanted.

Why don't you just preorder online? You can't realistically expect them to have it in their in-store system right after it's announced.

I wonder if they add the 800 point bonus in the future if pre orders now would still receive it? I would think yes but I'm not 100% sure.

Looks like they finally added Last of Us but with no reward bonus. Still $10 off, I ordered it.

i guess bb deal is only better if you want the option of returning anything without ruining the entire deal at FS you kinda stuck with what you order unless you want to return everything... with that which games everyone ordering? RE6 and beyond two souls looks good to me what makes last of us so good? maybe metal gear

Future Shop spreads the price of the game to all four, so $44.99. If it's anything like last year, you can return the game to the store when you receive it and not mess up your other games.

Aww, we're paying $5 more than last year. Hmm...

I'm not even sure if I'm going to pre-order anything beyond AssLib and Castlevania Mirror. I was hoping BB would have more portable games. Preferably $10 off Gravity Rush, SFxTekken and BW2.

i think he means with taxes its 44.99 per game but still 39.99 each game before taxes for 4x 59.99 games b3g1 so similar deal as last year but it seems like you have to stick with all four i think if you return one the deal is ruined if you buy at bb you still save -10 and some games have $10 rz so i guess if you cant decide on 4 games to keep for sure FS not best deal

Good to see some more games like Ni no Kuni and The Last of Us added.

When do you get the reward zone points, right away or when each game ships?

#28 Mr.

Posted 06 June 2012 - 08:26 PM

Assuming we're going with four $60 games:
$60 x 3 = $180 (buy 3)
$180 / 4 = $45 per game

Last year's FS deal was buy 3+ and get $20 off each title, so that's $40 per game. You have to watch out for these Buy X Get Y deals.

When do you get the reward zone points, right away or when each game ships?

You get your points ~36 days after your game ships, so you can't do any returns or whatever after you get your points. And these points do expire. Speaking of which, it doesn't look like the Last of Us and Ni no Kuni has the RZ points bonus yet. You're looking at only $10 off at the moment.

Ok, it seems like of the 5 games I'd want only 2 come with the points, making Futureshop's deal a better value.
