While you're at it, please add Microsoft Store. And if it fits, the $10 gift card. And the 1600 points.

Nice find btw, liljrSanchez. I was planning on holding out on the game but this offer is really tempting. I still have to stop by the physical store to see if their Halo 4 deal is also available in stores. I'm hoping this one is in store as well.

IMO Best Buy does. You get some pre-order DLC worth at most $5, $20 back as rewards, and 30 (normal)/60 (premiere silver) days to price match to a lower price. So if the game drops to $40 within 30 or 60 days you get the $20 back. Making the game essentially $20.

The $10 at the MS store is worthless to me since they very rarely have deals and add in shipping it usually negates the savings.

But if it's a deal for you, go for it.

It might look like the order doesn't go through, but it does. You won't get a proper confirmation page, or e-mail, but if you look at the END of you order history, the order will appear as "In Process".

AS IF RE6 is gonna drop to $40 in 60 days. This ain't Raccoon City. Best Buy also has one of the most complicated and user unfriendly pre-order and promotion systems on Earth. Most of which require you to show up in store and deal with idiot customer service. NO THANKS.

Regarding RE6 pre-orders, it easily is one of the best. If you are interested for Borderlands 2, perhaps you can use the $10 off? Not entirely sure!

Most likely it will, with Black Friday and Christmas rolling around soon after the release sales always happen. 80% of all games go on sale for $40 SOMEWHERE within 60 days and Best Buy price matches. So if it's $40 at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart (LOL), GameStop (bigger LOL), and a few other stores that sell games you can get the $20 back.

And you are generalizing your experiences. Idiots exist everywhere, they are not exclusive to any one store, location, group. Sometimes I have bad luck and sometimes I have amazing luck. For example, calling Best Buy to just put a note on my account and being given $15 without me even asking for anything.

Also price matching at Best Buy is incredibly easy, no idea where you've been shopping.

I am not saying this is a bad deal at all, it just isn't the right one for me personally, if it is for you go for it. Just spreading information.

Kinect Sesame Street is a nice offer since the game is $30 and you can prob get rid of it for like $10 to someone.

You can pick up sleeping dogs and darksiders 2 for $30 each with TRU's deal, those games came out 3 weeks ago. I will bet any amount of money that this game will be $40 within two months of it's release. Look at the current price drops of new releases and the release window for this game (fall, biggest season for new releases).

I'm not knocking the deal, it's damn good. Just knocking your one comment. Your logic doesn't fit with a seasoned cag

I think I'm going with the Dance Central 3.

The Sesame Street TV one is an awesome deal considering it's practically free but I don't have kids and I'm no longer 6.

Exactly, is this a good deal? Of course.

Is it the best deal, not to a CAG who has been around and knows the cycle/pattern of things.

Pretty good deal, but the $10 towards future purchase would probably go unused.

When do you get the $10 coupon? When the order ships? I was hoping it was at the time the order was placed so I could train a few preorders together

If it can be done in store you can probably save another $5 since they usually discount pre orders, or at least they did last year when they gave out $25 gift cards.

So this is $59.99 no matter what game you preorder from that list? Couldn't preorder Sesame Street which is only $29.99 and get the free 1600 pt card and $10 GC?

It does sound like that, BUT when you add a game to the cart it adds the MSP and $10 coupon to the cart and zeroes them out. So it is conflicting information.
