Like they have said above. The cashier has to hit F10 (which is suggested purchases) and ring up the code when you buy the game.

If they didn't then you have to go back and have them do it.

You can verify it before claiming, at least that's how the product code worked. I don't think it redeems until you click next a second time.



Can anyone confirm this if they try it?

My Best Buy is filled with people who don't have half a clue what's going on in the world. I might just call the 1800 number -_-

LE has return to karkand, regular does not.

OK, before I waste my time going back to BB this afternoon for my DLC, can anyone confirm they've fixed the codes so you get the SPECACT and not the dog tags?

Ugh. I prebought my copy at BestBuy about a two months ago and didn't get anything on the receipt, an email, or anything like that. Plus, even though I bought it in full (including tax) two months ago, I had to pay tax again. If not for their insanely good trade in values, I wouldn't shop there again. I guess I'll just stop buying things in full there. Gamestop has them beat in that department.

Oh god, I hope this doesn't happen with my Saints Row the Third DLC. Then I actually WOULD be pissed. I actually care about that DLC.

Just go to another cashier... The forum route is now saying to go back to the store as the store can now print off what you need.

After contacting Best Buy's Customer Support last night, I have yet to receive any email from Best Buy. Neither codes, apologies, or explanation.

Here is what my receipt looks like (didn't know what was safe to show so blacked out lines).
I did not receive the Dog Tag code or the SPECACT code. Maybe someone who DID get a code can show their receipt so we can compare.

Spoiler



BTW, I gave Best Buy a call this morning asking about it, and they still had no answers for me.

My Best Buy refuses to cave on the Pre-Order DLC -_-. Last night "Oh, its in the game case along with the Limited Edition stuff", earlier they say "Oh, it'll get emailed to you", now they are saying no 360 version's are getting the DLC due to the error (But i was looking for PS3). Told him the SKU posted above and apparently thats just for the 5$ pre-order or something, so now i have currently been on the phone for an hour in an endless cycle of repeating fail

Swear, after this 5 for 100$ deal is over, i'm seriously considering going back to the devil known as Gamestop. Atleast they dont screw up orders and promotions <_<

Yeah, unless it's packed in the box, BB manages to screw up every single promotion. You know what's really funny to me? The fact that this will probably be the SECOND time I've been denied SPECACT skins thanks to a promotion failure. Dr. Pepper fucked us PC owners over the first time with BC2 and now BB is doing it with BF3.

Somebody owes me some skins god dammit lol.

I'm fucking with you and I hate GS.
It's pretty damn bad when GS manages to treat its customers better then other retailers.
Maybe I'll ride the Kmart or Amazon credit train instead...

Agreed, i still remember the BFBC2 fiasco. Been on hold trying to call another store for nearly 20 minutes (A local store mind you <_<), they must be getting hammered with calls today. The Customer Service line said it was a 30 minute wait too.

I just dont get how a giant corporate store can be so dang unorganized.

Normally I'm pretty chilled but this ass hole rep got me worked up, almost raised my damnn voice at the b*tch. I talked to my normal game rep to ring up my game, even suggested her to do the F10 route. Don't know if she tried but she tells me she couldn't pull it up. She did mention about a memo that the codes are mistakenly switched to the dog tags, blah blah. So I said whatever, picked up my 2 copies and left to get my hair cut.

After that, I read that the BB forum are telling peopel to go back, so I went back. Went to regular customer service, I asked a regular customer service about the code, she said it's in the game. I told her there's another one, and it should be on the receipt. She insisted it's in the game. I told her if I bring the game in, opens it and if it's not in there, she's going to have to cover the cost and give me a brand new one. Then she says no. I asked her to re do the purchase and try the F10, she straight up told me no. And then tell me she's not going to be able to give me a code, as if i'm trying to beg her for a damn code.

So I just left. I'm still pissed that I have to rant on here. Dammit.. haha

Lol dude, your not the only one. I was raging hard last night after they gave me a Standard Edition claiming it was Limited, then tried to act like i was the idiot.

This hands down is the worst experience i have had with Best Buy. Atleast when my store accidentally sold my MvC3 CE they gave me a 50$ Gift Card, i cant even get the god damn employee to check a short SKU to see if it works now without acting like im trying to cheat the system or something

I don't get the refusal to do the F10 procedure. It clearly says "Suggested Buys" on the screen along with "F10". So it's like saying "I refuse to suggest buys for you to purchase because I am a retard." Anyone can pull up the SPEC ACT DLC. The first thing I did was ask my gaming rep to try it for me and she did it. It worked perfectly. Now you may or may not have to pay the extra $5 for it if you just have a gaming rep do it without getting your preorder. For some people, that may be worth it just to get it and get out at this point.

Has anyone actually redeemed a code and got the SPECACT DLC? Kind of important to know if I'm going to waste a trip back there and potentially have to fight these morons to get it.

I just entered my code and it said it was for the SPEC ACT. I didn't redeem fully, just verified it was not the dog tag dlc. This was for the PS3.

No idea, but 2 of 3 stores here flat out refused to even try it and just kept saying "You will receive it by email".

Finally got through to Customer Service, so im going to give that a try. After that, i just give up, while my solution might be wrong, i'd appreciate it if the employee atleast attempted it.

Slightly off topic from the current discussion, but what is currently the best deal for a digital download of the LE (or PC version with in-store pickup)? I need a copy of the game asap. Amazon at $51 is the lowest I've seen.

I knew I should have checked with CAG before I went to BB this afternoon to pick up my copy of BF3.

The game rep first got me the regular edition out of the cage they kept the BF3 copies in. I asked him why it wasn't the Limited Edition and he said they ran out. Luckily, another game rep came by and said they had more LEs in the stock room. The guy I was talking to then went back into the cage (after he locked it already and gave me the regular edition) and grabbed a LE. Yes, he lied to me straight to my face and had Limited Editions in the cage the whole time, then tried to play it off like nothing happened. Wonder who he was saving those LEs for...

Then I asked him where the SPECACT code was. He said he got his at 12:01 AM this morning and acted like he was surprised when I told him I didn't get an e-mail yet. I asked him a few more times if he was sure it would come via e-mail and not get printed on the receipt. He kept saying it's sent via e-mail. So I left. Now I read this thread and I'm super pissed that I gotta eventually make another trip back to BBY and argue with those brain-dead retards some more to get the code.

I hate Best Buy.
