I preordered Sunday online, it shipped monday, and I got the DLC email Tuesday. No points pending, but probably too early to expect it.

Now to wait for the game to arrive. ETA=15th.... sigh

It has nothing to do with Best Buy itself, it is a lack of the employee being trained and/or caring. I have gotten my DLC for Borderlands 2, RE6, and Disonored without a problem.

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.

This. It's the employee who needs to be trained to do it. The message pops up and most employees don't know what to do except the ones who have done a preorder in the past.

My borderlands 2 points took about 10 days to show up in my account.


Mine still haven't shown up, and on the Reward Zone site it doesn't even say pending. It says I paid $4.94 for Borderlands 2 (which was the difference after I paid with gift cards) but not mention of 1000 points or anything else.

Got any info you can share with me for when I go pickup ACIII and WWE 13 at the end of the month? A button to press, or something? The girls at my CS are super helpful but they can be a bit out of the loop on subjects such as this.

Well, their backup system (or whatever you want to call it) seems to be working. A mod on their forums said that they pull a daily report of purchases that may not have been done right and email codes within a day. My Dishonored preorder wasn't done right yesterday, and I just got my DLC code an hour ago.

Save yourself the hassle and just preorder online with in-store pickup. I have bought every game in this promo using that method and haven't had a single problem.

it is bestbuy's fault because
1) they don't train their employees and
2) they have a horrible system that makes it difficult for preorders

if you preorder a game the dlc should automatically be on the receipt, the employee shouldn't have to select it, the system should just know!

This is one thing that gamestop actually has right

I'd sell it, someone said that most of the stuff you get is just early access. Not 100% sure on that though.

same thing happened with me.. someone from the geek squad had to do my preorder because my bestbuy sucks and can't afford to hire a game specialist.. ofcourse she didn't put the dlc on it.

i got an email an hour ago with my dlc

my only question is if the $20 gc will go to my account even if the employee didn't put the dlc on my receipt

Well they should considering they ask you to pre-order a dam game every time you walk into the store. BBY may not always get it right but they will make it right. Not being peppered with pre-ordered begging every time I go there, a 60 price match window, and $20 RZ rebates seems to trump having to wait a day or two for some DLC.

Yeah I sell on Ebay. I take pics of the cards and say I will mail it to the person. Most people end up just wanting me to email them the code. Some want the card. Some want both. I have sold about 40 codes this past month with no issues.

Everytime I put up an auction for DLC on eBay it gets taken down by the eBay team. How are you guys getting around that? It's complete BS considering there's multiple other listings for the same DLC. I've read on this board that there used to be an overzealous member who would report people for putting up DLC auctions.

Quick question for you if you dont mind. Did the general purchase of the game show up before today? Or did both the purchase and the 1000 points get liseted today at the same time?

Thanks

do not mention you'll email the code, make it seem like you're mailing a card that has code on it. probably don't want to mention "DLC" or "code"

The purchase took about three days to show up at all, but with no bonus points. Bonus points didn't appear in the transaction for a little over a week.

Should be fine so long as the your receipt says "exchange" and has the $5 pre-order and purchase on the same ticket. As far as I know their two separate promotions.

Note that when I picked it up, mine did not, as the employee didn't know what to do. I had to talk to five different employees before getting one who knew how to do it correctly, but if I hadn't, i might not have gotten the pre-order DLC or this bonus at all. One customer service rep actually suggested cancelling the sale and re-ringing it up :( Fortunately, I chose not to.

Ordered the game online Sunday. Received the code yesterday. Received the game and lantern together today. No show on pending points or anything of the sort. Not worried though. If they don't show up in 30 days like expressed in the fine details, I'll shoot CS a call.

If you pre-ordered RE6, you should receive The Rail Yard Mercenaries DLC (I didn't, I had to call Capcom with my BBY information after multiple calls to BBY) and with Borderlands 2, you get The Premiere Club DLC.
