I asked this earlier and I was told probably not because it's considered double-dipping.

But confirmation would be nice.


Well, the Hitman PM is double-dipping too, I just want to know if someone had success.

I know it's ymmv, but has anyone claimed the hitman offer, and then went to bb and price matched the gamestop price? I'm on the fence now, but if I could get hitman for $20 I'd buy it no problem.

A lot of people reported success on the H:A thread (two of them). If you know the manager on shift then it's very easy.

I believe the difference, small as it might seems, is that the Hitman case is a $20 gift card, versus RE6, which is a $20 discount. The gift card goes through, it seems, but the discount does not.

I wouldnt say a lot of them are having success, Its actually the opposite. A lot are getting shot down

If you do try, get them to price match first and then slip the rz gc offer after they have finalized the PM and are ready for payment, this seems the best way of getting it to happen

There's no slipping in the offer like that. It's automatically linked to your RZ account after you redeem it online. Just have them scan your RZ(or look it up) first, then scan the game, price match, and then get your GC. You don't have to trick any one. You just have to get them to still give you the $20 GC, but it should not be too big a deal because you can say it's a Gamers Club promo.

That's the way Hitman is. I don't know if Resident Evil automatically takes off $20 when you enter your RZ. If it does, you would need to scan and PM game first, then see if putting your RZ number in automatically drops it down $20.

For all of these offers, the deduction doesn't happen until the cashier hits "Total", so as long as you do the PM before the transaction is totaled out, you should be good, though I'm only guessing.

Interesting. I will go find out tomorrow. I will be PMing Hitman and Resident Evil, prob in separate transactions.

If I decide to return one of those games, and I paid with a gift card, do they return a gift card to you?

Just wait on this game. If they are discounting it this fast, it will be $20 in a few months.

And? If you can get it now for $39.99 and the $20 gc, why not get it?

For those asking about the Hitman PM+gift card it is very much YMMV. I've had similar routines get totally denied and only go through a small handful of times. It pretty much depends on the customer service person you get. Also, if the gift card is automatic and tied to your RZ+game UPC be warned because many times for PMs at various BBs where I live they will override the price of the game manually as just something like "Pricematch Game" so that there is no UPC tied to it. I'm not saying that's company policy or even correct/legal but just saying it's happened more than once to me at Best Buy.

Was able to get it for 39.99 and then get a $20 rz cert when I called the Premier Silver line and told them that I did not get the giftcard when I purchased it.

Im just telling you what other people are doing to get the CSR and managers to do it without claiming that its double dipping and shooting you down

Which technically it is and they should, so yes you are tricking them

    Missed out on the Great Walmart glitch of 11/6 due to FLAT TIRE

Posted 07 December 2012 - 12:37 PM

I did this the other day when I bought it for 40 on BF weekend PM to amazon I think. I used a remaining 9 dollars from a gc to bring it down to like 31 something. Paid rest with my CC. Then this coupon came out and so I went back and they honored it...however all they did was return and rebuy at the lower price because the idiot CSR said the coupon had already been used..yet I just printed it out 30 mins earlier. When I asked about what happened to the gc, they said it was put back into my credit card but the receipt does not show that. ...so did I loose a 9 dollar credit from my GC? It's not showing up on my gc.

Hopefully the gamestop link for Hitman stays up so I can pm later, and hopefully get the gift card. I have $20 in rz to burn. Then Sunday I can pm the 3ds xl price change, get 20 back and use it with the gift card on fc3.

I just got 500 RZ points credited to my account randomly with the description as "expired certificates" I've been watching my points carefully and have no idea where this came from? Anybody experience something like this? Not that I'm complaining or anything, just pretty confused as where this "expired certificate" came from cause I've never noticed any points expire from my account.

Just got back from my trip. Got the Hitman adjusted with the gift card :D

For the record they adjusted it first, then I handed them my rewards, and the gift card popped up automatically since I claimed it on the site.

When the girl did it. She was like "Oh there's a 20 dollar gift card bundled with this too."

I then played dumb(which isn't hard to do:lol:) with "Wow really?!? Cool. I'll use it to pick up the Dark Knight rises then." :D

Oh and first they weren't going to do it because they couldn't bring up the web page with the price(which you know if you been following that thread), but before doing it I went over to gamestop to check and sure enough it was 39.99 and mentioned that I don't know if it's online but I knew it was in store because I just saw it. Figured they call to check, which would have been fine, but they took my word on it and just gave me the adjustment.

Well Best Buy Rewards CSR got some major points with me today.

Lets see she:
-Gave me an extra 1000 points for my second BO2 preorder and purchase.
-Applied the credit from the two transactions the cashier forgot to enter.
-Looked into the whole resident evil 6 situation I mentioned earlier and decided to credit me another 500 points since the store screwed up in handling the return/adjustment thing with the coupon.

Good day best buy! :)
