Went to trade in some games today, but there weren't any promos for preordering games. Only promos for game purchases.

I heard they won't be given out early like AC3, you can only get it when you pick up or it gets shipped with your order. So most likely, they won't be getting stock of it until a few days before it's release.

I still have to pre-order mines...I'm just debating whether or not to get it for PS3 or 360.

When I did a trade in a BB yesterday, I looked at the screen for the promos. I couldn't find any preorder promos, only the 40% bonus on a game purchase promo. Just a heads up...

Nope, BestBuy doesn't do accessories for some reason. However, you will get $52.65 at Amazon and $30 at GameStop.

so have people been able to trade in and get the 40% for preordering?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I was actually planning on heading to my BB for some trade-in's and pre-order AC3 for the steelbook.
I'll head in tomorrow anyways and see if I get the 40% bonus trade-in (and check if the 10% still stacks up if it's still been screwy)

Curious b/c on thursday I had 2 friends do trades for me at 2 different stores. First store, me and the gaming guy are cool even though he goes pretty much by the book. That store he added 40% for preorder bonus and I preordered something which I'm going to pick up. Second store, gaming guy and MGR are jerks but it was closer for my friend so we went there. They did the trade but said had to buy a game for 40% bonus. Just bought TW13 but will return it. I thought the guy was BSing b/c I had just traded an hr before and it was there. Seems its some stores and not others.

As long as the manager at your BB isn't a total killjoy, I feel like you should be able to get the additional 40% as long as you show them the deal on their website. I didn't have to argue at all, just got a second gift card with the extra TIV on it.

The Orange store is the absolute best store they have


I haven't been there in a while, but I'll join in and say that I've never had a bad experience there. All the managers/employees were always cool about everything.
