Ya'know how they just recently changed the formating for the rewardzone website?

Well I had $30 in certificates before the change. Already ready to print.

I logged in a day or two ago for the 1st time after the change and they were gone. Vanished. Not there. I was gonna write and angry e-mail but the problem resolved itself before I could...

After about 5-10 minutes passed and I logged in and out of my account at least once, the certificates finally appeared. I think the new system just needed a few minutes to "find" them.

I think the website overhaul is just a little less instant than the old one. Might still be working the kinks out.

Takes a few for things to kick in.

And yeah, try logging out and in again.

If you don't have yours TOMORROW... then I'd be concerned.

Ah, okay thanks ill try that. I hope they come in by tommorow <_<, i was planning to use it towards an Instore Pickup of Dragon Age 2, and i dont want to use them toward Homefront for fear of voiding the bonus 500 points

Still nothing an hour and a half later. To top it off i even got the "Your Certificate is ready" email <_<.

I'm assuming it is possible, then, to buy Pokemon Black AND White for $52.50 today (Sunday) and get two kits?

Anybody think there's a chance Best Buy will PM Toys R Us? Not sure how they'll handle it since they have their own gift card offer going.

Also got both copies and two kits. Don't know how many of the kits stores got in, but there was a good dent in their visible stock when the first 4-5 people bought copies this morning.

It's too bad my $10 off $50 coupon wouldn't work. :-( For once, it actually excluded video games (usually just hardware is excluded).

Did they scan it and the register rejected it or did they read the restrictions first and turn you away? Just wondering if the register accepts or rejects it automatically since I got that same coupon in the mail and I'm planning on trying it on Black/White later today.

Looks like those who pre-ordered Pokemon Black or White at bestbuy.com aren't left out on the $5 gift card deal. Well, sort of...

"Please note: Customers who pre-ordered either game prior to March 6 will receive a $5 digital coupon via e-mail."

"Digital coupon," eh? :-?

I was in Walmart the other day - my 6 yr. old had a giftcard from his brithday - and their videogame section is almost non-existent. Target, well they may not have any sales, but their clearance section keeps me looking week after week and at least once a month I find something good - Sin & Punishment 2, White Knight Chronicles, Bayonetta, Brutal Legend all for around their $12.48 price. Currently waiting on Dragon Age Origins to fall from $35 and the PS2 Slim with Toy Story 3 to fall below $69, they had 3 of each this morning. I checked after trading in my PS2 phat to Gamestop for $45 (same parking lot).

You got screwed. I preordered in store and got the gift card, and the points should be posting in however many days that takes. And I price matched the Toys R Us deal. The cashier did say she shouldn't give the gift card and PM, but she did it for me anyway since I'm in there pretty often.

Picked up Pokemon Black and White with the B1G1half-off, 2 kits, and 2 wall clings for my 2 kids.

I do not feel the kits are worth $11.99, much less $9.99. Probably sold to people trying to buy a bunch of stuff all at once. Kids like them though. It never hurts to have more stylus' in the house. My son plans on giving his extra to a friend, which is nice.

Happy with the deal--lots of store traffic but no waiting. Helped a mom with buying her kid his 1st Pokemon game, she was very much aware of the ESRB rating, which made me feel proud for her--I wish all parent's gave a shit enough to read the ESRB ratings.

Did anyone else pass on the kits so that children could get them? Not trying to judge but I would think a ki would enjoy them a lot more than many of us here.

Unfortunately I couldn't get to the store when it opened, so I got there about an hour later, and they were out of accessories. I did get Ghost Trick for $15 though.

you should be fine as long as you preordered it. sounds like slidecage had a localized incident of cashier stupidity.
