Oh Man they specifically told me that BB doesn't pricematch gift cards. My store sucks.

So I don't know where else to post this but I have a question about BB policy. I screwed up and didn't preorder Deus Ex. At Best Buy what are my chances of getting the preorder bonus if I just buy one of the copies they got in the original shipment? I know for some games they just include the little DLC card in every copy of the first shipment.

Dang it I am probably going to have to wait to purchase. I can't justify full price.

Policy used to allow the gc amount to be deducted from the $60 but they changed it in July, but if your BB has been doing it they'll probably continue to. I always tell them "I rather spend @ BB or that the others stores gc wouldn't really work for me b/c I shop here so much plus I'm RZ silver".

You won't get the $10 pre-order bonus unless there was a pc error preventing the store from taking them or something like that but the codes n stuff just check the game case. Look for little stickers with details about the bonus my BB's don't pull reg. versions of games.

This game will be $40 w/i 30-45 days so you'll be able to pm it down if you really want to play now, if your RZ silver but need extra days return/rebuy. Edit: It's already on sale at Fry's $50

That is so weird about the DLC codes inside the game case. Some people are talking about vouchers at BB. And then people are just randomly finding them inside the case.

In any case BB might price match the Fry's sale so that will be a good enough deal for me to bite on this.

Since there weren't any preorders for the game at my Best Buy I will look to see if there is any cases that say anything about the DLC preorder bonus.

I pm'd Frys for $50 but I paid part of it for $10 shopkick BB cert. If price drops to $40, how can I get back the $10? Is it equivalent to a BB gc so I get a gc?

Hm, does anyone know if TRU was given reprints of certain games recently? I've seen a few copies of Yoshi's Island :ds: at several TRU recently and I thought that was out of print. Was hoping to pair it up with Super Mario All Stars :wii:, but could only find Yoshi's Island. Paired it up with Diddy Kong Racing :ds:(which was also a shock to find). Debating though if $45 is worth it for the 2.

It is not. DKR for the DS is pretty awful. Not worth 10 bucks.

Hm yeah, after looking at some reviews online, it looks like the game is nowhere as good as the N64 version. Guess the hunt for a Super Mario All Stars :wii: to match with Yoshi's Island continues!

Usually someone has it by Wed. night/Thurs....

I'm also anxiously awaiting to see if BB enters the gc fray with Madden, or offers some kind of other deal. I need to know if I should pre-order another copy or two before the end of the weekend...

after MK's store specific DLC insert cards, I'm not surprised. Also if you check on ebay, ppl are selling the dlc code which seem to be off cards as well.
