Okay I see now. That is awesome. Turns out a few games I got in the past got me 800 points without me knowing.

I'm using mine to buy Skyrim for PC but they're out of stock. I somehow wound up with $40 worth.

Does anyone know if Best Buy/Futureshop take RE:Mercs 3D in as a trade in? I don't really touch it anymore.

Best Buy is doing something right, they shipped Zelda on Friday and I just checked my rewardzone balance, they already have the appropriate amount of points plus 800 pre-order bonus POSTED, not even pending. I'm used to online purchases not ever even showing up unless I call or email them to manually do it.

Can I use a Best Buy Reward Zone gift certificate for online purchases with in-store pick-up ? If so that would let me lock a price online then use the gift certificate during pick-up time when the actual payment is made.

The shipping isn't really a shock. They shipped my SM3DL on Friday as well as Skyward Sword. The same thing happened to me with the reward zone points being added right away. THAT is a huge shock to me. Hopefully they fixed their stupid system to add online orders now but I'm not holding my breath.

I didn't mean them shipping on Friday was doing something right, although it definitely was. I was just showing how fast they added the points after shipping. I was pleasantly surprised they shipped Fri but I was somewhat shocked about the points not only being added without me hassling them but they were added fast and already posted.

Just wondering, what are the dates of these points added? I am not sure whether mine are added or not, None are dated Nov.15, but some are added on the 10 (and I have no idea what game this is etc).

If his are anything like mine then the date will be when you ORDERED the game and not the date it shipped. Because mine says September 4th. If you ordered earlier then yours probably won't show up.

Thanks. I'll go check. I wish they just list what game each bonus point were for... a lot less confusion

Oh you are right. Ok then I guess I have all my points. Thanks

They don't show up in the history, I just counted the new points on the account and they made up the amount I should be given for Zelda plus 800 bonus. My certificate for the Zelda 800 points was available tonight, just printed it.

Hmm... so that $10 for November 21st is Skyward Sword? I thought it was for Arkham City.

I think Best Buy might have actually fixed their stupid Reward Zone system for online orders. I got points for something I ordered online a couple days ago. Either this is a fluke or they finally fixed it after it being fucked to hell for years.

Good morning friends up North.

I have a quick questions about mailing items to Canada. If it is shipped by the United States Postal Service First Class Mail option we don't get tracking once it leaves the U.S. However i was wondering if once the item was ready to be delivered if the Canadian post makes any type of entry that the item was receivd and processed through customs, perhaps for fee/taxes purposes?

I am dealing with a scam buyer at the moment and was just trying to get more informaiton.

Thank you

As far as I know once it enters Canada there's no way to know what's being done to it. I receive packages from my wife in the states on a regular basis (mostly videogames and dvds). Last Christmas I had to deal with one package that I had suspected had been lost so I called the local Canada Post branch responsible for delivery in the area where I lived and gave them the info on the USPS receipt and they said they had no means of tracking this package since there was no tracking number. All they could do was check the package ID number to see if they had received it at their location. Luckily my stuff turned up ok after about over a month. I'd suggest you do the same and call the post office near where that scam buyer lives.

Good luck with the hunt!

I've noticed it working too, but for a while there I was getting other peoples points as well as my own. Only done one BB order in the last few months so I don't know for sure. That one worked and they posted the points immediately instead of pending for 36 days.

I've ordered two thing since it was fixed and both times the points were added. I think it's safe to say that they finally got their shit together and fixed their system. My Zelda order was added right away as well instead of pending.

I ordered something back in July and it was indeed shipped via Canada Post. I can't say whether or not this is always true, as it's based on only a single order.

Just a quick question about Best Buy in-store pickup. Their email system has been incredibly slow lately, and I haven't been getting any emails for placing orders, order shipping, etc.. Right now I have an order placed for in-store pickup, but haven't received the pickup email yet. The order status on the site says it's 'Fulfillment Completed', which I assume means that the items have been put aside to pickup.

Can I just go in with the order invoice from the website to pick it up or is there going to be a problem because I don't have the email with me? Today's the first chance I'd get in anyway (ordered Tuesday evening), and the sale ends today so I would really like to pick it up tonight after work.

You should be fine without it; I've almost never brought in the actual confirmation e-mail. They should have it set aside under your name at customer service. I suppose it's not a bad idea to bring along the website invoice just in case.

I just figured bringing the invoice would give them the order# if they needed it. Anyway, Best Buy seems to have cleared their email backlog and I now have the pickup notice. But it's good to know anyway, for future reference. Thanks for the info!

I did an in-store pickup once and they didn't seem to have any record of the lower price I ordered at other than the confirmation I bought in. They were going to charge me the current higher price til I showed that to them.

I received my Club Nintendo 2011 reward today. Came from Vancouver. This thing is in a flimsy cardboard box and they just threw it in an oversized bubble envelope. Amazingly it's not damaged but I think it's more at risk of getting crushed than the Zelda wiimote bundle was. Hopefully it comes through for other people too. It's the reward that's a bunch of Mario themed pins in a box. I think it's called the Platinum reward or something, for having 600 coins.
