Came here to ask but I see the answer.... ALOT of the confusion is caused by how Best Buy credits the bonus 1000 points. I've done 3 games so far, all were pre-ordered online but only NBA 2K13 was actually picked up in the store. I showed the 1000 promo bonus on the shipped items right away but the in-store pickup doesn't show the bonus just the base 118 points. I will just be patient and watch that it does appear. 1118 points on each purchase or about $22.50 in RZ credit for each game is sweet. I'm in for this the rest of the year. :)


I'm confused as to how it came to about $22.50 per game?


Fixed it so it makes sense for you. 1118 points = ~$22.50 in RZ credit.

I'm a silver member, I pre-ordered Dishonored back on 10/1, and just got the shipping e-mail this morning. Still no pending points however, this is the first time it hasn't posted quickly to my RZ account.

Anyone got the 1000 bonus pts posted for NBA 2K13 on their RZ account yet? I only see the pts for the game purchase, but not for the pre-order bonus.

I know the pts doesn't turn into certs for another month, but I do expect them at least being posted with a 'pending' status.

Out of curiosity, whats does being a Silver member have to do with preordering the game?

I'm Silver..is there something I'm missing perhaps?

As much as I think XCOM looks good it is just one of those games I can wait till it hits $20. I know I will never have time to play it with Borderlands 2, Dishonored, AC:III, Halo 4, BLOPS 2, Hitman, and Far Cry 3....yeah there is most likely not time for all those either. :(

Here is some info that might help people who are looking forward to PMing any game from this promo (or any other time)

This link is for Borderlands 2, it tells you exactly what day is 60 days from the day it came out. Just change the URL to get another date. Like for Resident Evil 6 I used this one and for Dishonored I used this one.

I then went to my google calander and set up an all day reminder for the closest previous Sunday and had it email me at 0 minutes before. So at exactly 12:00 on the last Sunday I will get an email reminding me that this is the last week to PM BL2/RE6/Dishonored.

I found it very useful that way I won't forget. I also put the receipt in the case with the game so I always know where it is. I know they can look up your receipt, but this streamlines the process.

Hopefully this helps some people.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Just got back from doing the same thing. I wasn't sure if I wanted it at launch but after reading some early reviews and my 60 day pm window + the $20 bonus, it was hard to pass up.

I also preordered Dishonored for the reasons mentioned above (60 day pm window and certificate), but I'm not sure if I should cancel my Amazon order so I could place it with Best Buy for the same reasons. I just really want that MoH steelbook (or as they call it, tin case)....

Awesome. I preordered mine the same night and its been sitting at my post office since Monday. The great thing is that it had an estimated delivery date of today. Which I knew wouldn't happen.

I don't really want to spend a lot of cash right now, so im tempted to just trade in RE6 tomorrow for $43.20 and use that towards Dishonored and paying off the difference with my other GCs.

I know RE6 just came out, but after it was all said and done with PM, cert, and gift card, I only paid $34ish for the Anthology. So I'd be getting more than I initially paid, and I got to keep 1-5. I haven't even beaten the game yet, but I figure the vanilla will be on sale fairly soon.

Then again, I have 7 days to finish it until I lose out on my Dishonored promo.

FYI, you'll only get $38.40 for RE6 with the 60% bonus on the $24 current base value. You'll still come out slightly ahead, though.

Ahhhh I'm not sure if I should pull the trigger on dishonored or not!? It's getting a bunch of good reviews and it comes with 20 dollars and i need a game to play but I heard the game is short so I can maybe redbox it? Also it looks like there out of the USB lamp online

Check the TIV page my friend. The PS3 version is currently getting $27 base unlike the 360 copy ;)

I knew I switched to PS3 for good reason aha.

But yea...the Redbox is a good idea

I'm actually off tomorrow, so I might just pull me an all nighter with RE6! When I switched to PS3, I lost the desire for achievements and trophies, so I'm not concerned with 100% it, just sheer fun :D
