BB has GOW2 on sale for 29.99 this week. If you put 5 bucks down on a game pre-order you get 10 bucks off any 29.99 game or higher instantly, provided they are on the same receipt. If you use Madden as your pre-order you can get that 5 bucks back 5 days after the game comes out, which is Aug. 14th. So you are basically getting GOW2 for 20 bucks. Some people probably already know about this, but this is for those who don't know Best Buy pre-order policy. Same goes for any of the games you pre-order....you can get that 5 bucks back 5 days after release if you don't want the game.

Hmm, isn't more like you're getting GOW 2 for 25 bucks since you have to pay $5 to get the $10 off?

Oh boy....I was waiting to see who would need basic Math 101. Here we go....

1. Buy GOW2 (29.99) +
2. Reserve Madden (5.00) + = 35 bucks (rounding off)
3. Receive a discount for reserving Madden (-10.00)

35-10= 25.00 (what you pay plus tax)

Come back Aug. 19th or later with your receipt and get 5 bucks refunded.

25-5= 20 (total you paid plus tax after finished)

You, sir, are quite crafty. You're like the Macgyver of CAG :rofl:

I already have GOW2, but maybe something else will catch my eye...

Yeah, anything 29.99 is basically 19.99 and this even applies to games on sale this week. I did this the other day to get Watchmen pt. 1 & 2 for 20 bucks. Plus you get free game cases from the pre-orders..lol. Normally getting your reserve money back isn't such a big deal, but when they offer 10 bucks off for doing so, then it becomes a great deal. I'm not positive, but I think I read one time that you don't even have to actually wait for the game to release. You can actually get your 5 bucks back prior to the game releasing. Not 100% on that, but I might try it just for a test.

I don't think I would quite have the balls to go immediately to the CS desk and as for a refund on something I bought 15 seconds prior, but I guess that answers the question on when you can get the money back. Thumbs up on that one, ballsy!

Does anyone know if the Uncharted pre-order bonus is already available at Best Buy? I genuinely wanted to reserve that and I might as well do it this way.

Yah I did, they took it lol. I think 20 bucks will be the cheapest you can get a new gow2 for a long while.

I didn't see Uncharted 2 pre-order case at my local BB, but then again I wasn't really looking for it. I know it wasn't in the small section where they had the pre-order cases all sitting together.

say if you preorder any game, do you have to pick it up at the same place you reserved it?

The BB's in the St. Louis area have them.

Do I have to return the pre-order case or can I just take my receipt for the refund?

You don't have to return the pre-order case if you cancel. You also don't have to turn it in when you pick up your pre-order.

GOW2 is on sale, however. The Chex coupon is off regular priced items, but you may get lucky with a dumb cashier.
