Correct. What you want to keep an eye out for is at the bottom of the transaction, where it says total points earned for this transaction, is a line item that says "Gamers Club Unlocked Victory Can Be Pre-Ordered Bonus."

I don't see that on mine. This is what mine looks like.


PS-PS3-RESIDENT EVIL 6
REWARD ZONE CARD
RZGC UNLOCKED PO 10 DISCOUNT
PS3-RESIDENT EVIL 6
PRE ORDER BONUS PS3-RE6



Total Points Earned with this transaction

Purchases
RZGC Everyday Bonus Point Promo


Should I be worried or does the "RZGC UNLOCKED PO 10 DISCOUNT" mean I should get my 1,000 points with no problems?

I just found some rare/unique Resident Evil 6 game on EBAY. It looks like something only developers would get access to. Have any of seen it before or heard about it.

$20 Reward Zone Gamer's Club Unlocked for Dummies

1) You will not get your $20 RZ until around the 30-35 day mark (after purchase). Stop worrying about it until that point.
2) The RZ website is far from accurate. Proof in point, the RZ silver bar. Again, see #1. Patience is a virtue.

What does this mean on a purchase?
- RZGC UNLOCKED PO 10 DISCOUNT - Your 10% discount for Pre Owned Games. This will show up for ANY purchase (gaming or not) as long as you are Gamer's Club Unlocked.
- PS-(system)-(game) i.e. PS-X360-RESIDENT EVIL 6 - This is your preorder being deducted from the purchase of the game.

Preorder DLC Bonus - You need to have an email address associated to your Reward Zone account. This is the email address they will send your DLC code to. It typicially can take a day to obtain this. Potentially up to a week. Note your luck of getting this by the time you get home is a crapshoot. Wait a week and then call customer service if you haven't received.

FOR YOUR POINTS...
If your physical receipt shows like below, you should get your $20RZ preorder bonus.

EXCHANGE

Original Tran (Cust Serv Pin) Date

Return Items
Pre-order SKU PS-(system)-(game) 5.00-

Sale Items
SKU Name of Game for above 59.99

The complaining about these points/DLC need to die down. Come on guys/gals...

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE

if you preordered in-store, you're supposed to get your DLC on your receipt when you go to pick up the game and receive it in your email as well. Just an FYI for people who did not know

I was under the impression that most serious gamers didn't go for the whole sports game thing because it was a year by year cash cow that rarely got an update from the previous year's title (besides rosters).


It might just be me though, as I could care less for most sports besides baseball and the occasional festive soccer match, and even then...i love my old Triple Play '98 and Ken Griffey's Slugfest.


No offense man, but I've heard this "roster update" criticism from so many gamers over the years and it almost exclusively comes from people who don't buy or play sports games. If you aren't playing the new installments year after year, how are you in the position to say that they don't add enough stuff or that the games aren't improving enough?

Wouldn't that be like me criticizing the Resident Evil series even if I hadn't actually played it since the original came out? It seems that sports games are the one genre where it is completely acceptable for people to rip on them even if they don't play them or haven't done so in years.

Again, no offense, just a general observation that has always intrigued me. :)

No offense taken my friend :)

Your observation was just as good as my own. And I suppose you're right. I haven't played ANY of this current gen's sports games besides The Show. I just know quite a few people who bought a game system JUST to play NCAA or Madden, even NBA of some sort and it has just made me wonder why just a sports title when there are so many "better" games available? Personal preference I guess.


On another note, I went in tonight to preorder Black Ops 2 and Dishonored. I wasn't scheduled for work Monday or Tuesday this week, so I'm hoping to run through the game, somewhat patiently of course, to have the game traded in Tuesday to pay off most of Dishonored. I'd like to trade it towards Borderlands 2 instead (too moronic to have remembered to preorder this while while the $20 deal was going for it :roll:), but I know I only have 7 days to fulfil the preorder before it's cancelled and I lose out on the freebie $20, so Dishonored has to be first.

Also, the guy gave me a Black Ops 2 baseball cap and silicone Iphone 4 case "just cause". I don't see any of these on ebay or anywehre else...anyone else gotten these or perhaps want to trade for them?

Just curious, does anyone know whether the seven days is counted FROM the release date? In other words, can I pick up RE 6 on Tuesday and still get the $20 bonus? I would ask the store itself, but since they incorrectly told my brother that games have to be picked up 5 days from release, I don't think they're so knowledgeable about their own store's policy.

If I can pick up my RE 6 on the same day I pick up Dishonored and XCOM, that'd be nice so I could consolidate trips (I'm about a half hour away from my local Best Buy).

Yeah, that seems logical. I tried searching the thread, but anything with the word "days" ends up bringing up several hundred questions about how many days it will take RZ certificates to become available. :roll:

So out of curiosity to all the people on the fence about RE6, Dishonored, etc, and thinking of waiting til BF... Why not just have preordered now to guarantee the $20 cert, play the game and if you don't like it get the $35-42 back in TIV, or if you do like it and possibly STILL want to trade it in, just keep PM'ing it as sales go in.

For silver members like myself, the 60 day PM period is almost more than enough time for any of the games to go on sale, whether its $10 or $30. Not to mention how much BBY is promoting their PM policy guarantee on the back of receipts now.

Then just keep bringing in the original receipt everyone you have the chance to get some cash back. Seems logical to me a least. I just picked up Borderlands 2 for my gf's brothers bday (she paid me back), and kept the receipt so I can just go back and get some money back whenever it hits a sale and use that towards my own copy of the game when I finally want to get it.

I believe what the store is referring to is that they only guarantee to HOLD your reserved copy for 5 days, like Gamestop will only hold your reserved copy for 48 hours after release. For the purposes of the promotion, you have 7 days to pick up your pre-order. Technically, if a game sells really well, or the store doesn't get many copies, you might have issues picking up past the 5 day mark. I've only had that happen once though, when I tried to pick up my pre-ordered Deus Ex on the 5th day, and they had accidentally sold my held copy and didn't have any others in store. I had to wait for a new shipment to come in, then get a mod on the forums to fulfill the gift card offer.

Um the game isn't out yet...I've never known of any place that allows you to pre-order online and pick up in store besides GameStop which would charge you money for doing it. And no I don't mean $5 online and then $55 in store. I mean it would be an extra $5 making the game cost $65.

Just because some places broke street date does not mean the street date was changed.

Have no idea what this is in reference to. I don't think I said anything about street date being broken or whatever. I'm upset that I can't pre-order a copy of the game for In-Store Pick Up on Tuesday and have to get it shipped now. Same thing happened with 2K13 last week when I waited until Monday. People kept saying that they cut online pre-orders for In Store Pick Up off Sunday at 5pm so I figured I would have time. I was out all weekend and figured I'd get it in today since, much like 2K13, I was now sure that I'd be in the area of a BB on Tuesday for work (and not the usual 40 minutes + away that I usually am) so figured I'd just pick it up then.

Looks like another week of waiting. Hope to avoid spoilers. At least I'll have 2K13 to keep me busy, I guess.

Try ordering it for ship to home and then call CS to change it to store pickup. It's worked for me before. BB usually cuts off .com orders for in-store pickup around Sunday. I think preordering before 2 days prior to release date isn't asking for much in BB's defense.

My Borderlands 2 1000 points showed pending as soon as my purchase was posted on my RZ account. My RE6 purchase was posted, but no 1000 pending points. I called and they had to manual enter the points for me. They said they have no idea where the error occurred. They don't know why Borderlands 2 worked fine but RE6 did not. Either way, the RZ customer service is always awesome and it was an easy fix. I do hope the rest of my preorder points go through on their own though.
