yes, you can preorder the night before. many ppl have done that. if you do not pickup your game. you are not going to receive the $20 and the dlc code.


Thanks, picking it up after work, loved what I played of it.

I pre-ordered Dishonored Monday night, but have not picked the game up yet. I do not have the pre-order DLC email yet, does this indicate that I won't get it or the $20 credit since I pre-ordered so late or do you have to actually pick the game up to get sent the codes. I rented it for free from redbox to make sure I would enjoy it and love it, but don't want to pay $59.99 for it unless I get the extras. Thanks.


How did you manage to order it for instore pickup on the last day of preorder? I had to get it shipped to me. I got my DLC code before it even got shipped. I still haven't got the $20 posted to my account though but it hasn't been 5 days yet so not worried yet.

if you call in within one hour, after placing your online order. you have the option of switching it to instore pickup. i did it with fifa 13 last time.

Well it surpassed 35 days since I preordered borderlands. I had to call customer service. 30 minutes later I got my $20 certificate, they still didn't give me the $63.84 in points that I spent on the game. I don't feel like calling again and I really shouldn't have to. I'm happy for everybody that is having luck with this promo, but I'm done with preorders at Best Buy.

Isn't it 30 days after pickup you get your $20. The game came out 9/18. Now im not the smartest guy, but I know it hasn't been 35 days bewteen then and now.

I just want to make sure I qualify for the $20 credit if I pick the game up, usually you can't pre-order the night before, but this week it was different.


I dont see it being an issue either. I pre-ordered my copy around 12:30am Monday. Received my dlc code shortly after the game shipped and my bonus points posted as pending this morning :-)

You say they owe you points for $64. 1) tax doesn't get points. 2) how did you pay? Gift card, pitch-in card, reward cert, BB prepaid visa all don't give points. 3) if you used cash or credit card, did you try adding it via the report missing points option? You'd need the amount and customer service pin from the receipt.

I went to the store at about 8:30pm Monday night and did it in person. I was surprised it worked as was the sales agent, thus my concern over it actually not showing up as a pre-sell. I've got the receipts so if something comes up I do have proof.

Another 20$ posted, but still no Dishonored DLC.

After pm their gaming department, I got my key. So now I'm hoping for the normal process to send me another key that I can sell on EBay. It might happen LOL


Wow, maybe I should PM them again, Ive been waiting on a response to my fifa code for 2 weeks now. Thought it just took this long.

ended up getting an extra Dishonored DLC code on my dad's email for some reason. Called me and told me he got it and emailed me the code.

Up for grabs for anyone willing to trade/buy it. Otherwise it's hitting ebay since I already used my code in-game.

And you're sure the codes are different? Best Buy puts a code on the receipt and emails an identical code as a backup.

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.

had 1000 pending points in my account this morning. They were not pending on my b2 or dishonored transactions. Now the 1000 points are gone and I do not have any certs.

Still waiting on my 1000 from B2 and 1000 from dishonored.

Their system is wierd. I got my dishonored code and the 1 min later i got an extra nba 2k13 code. Were your codes labeled the same? My nba codes were labeled differently but had the same content.

Well, Dishonored Purchase dropped as pending but the 1,000 didn't Ill give it a few days like RE6.

Hope it went through well. They forgot to give me the Whale Oil lamp so they had to return the game and then re ring it with the lamp to give it to me. The top of it says Exchange so hopefully that keeps everything right.

Actually it's not early. Many of us already received our Dishonored $20/1000 points already and it's been ten days since release, so the points should already show as pending. There is clearly a problem on Best Buy's end and they are not responding to us on their help forums.

I got my Borderlands 2 preorder all perfect - DLC came in early and 1000 RZ points posted shortly after. Now, with Dishonored...I'm getting trouble from every direction. I couldn't get the Whale Oil USB Lamp from the Best Buy that i picked up in because they won't change their inventory for preorders done online. Now, I just realized that my Dishonored is not showing the 1000 points pending. I sent a PM to their Gaming Rep on the forums and giving it a few more days before I lose my patience.

The game came out 3 days ago. I've had my pending not show up for sometimes a week and without fail it always gets done. I hope this board is just a vocal minority and the majority of people doing this promo aren't freaking out daily to the CS reps.

Last year with the 5 for $100 promo we had to wait the entire 35 day standard waiting period (first world problems) and with this I'm getting 20 bucks cleared within a week most of the time. With their trade-in deals I'm going to end up paying mere dollars for several huge releases. It's a great promotion and the entitlement/demanding of people is ridiculous.

My freakin nba points keep appearing and dissapearing in my pending points. This is like the 3rd day in a row where they showed that I had them pending then i check later on in the day and their gone.

I kind of stopped caring if they show up or don't. I still have RE6 Anthology points not pending, let alone my Dishonored bonus ones.

I'm not worried though, because after those 30 days, all it takes is a little bitchin on the CS line and my $40 would be posted in mere minutes.

But, I have faith that won't be the route I have to take.

I'm not worried as I'm sure they will fix the problem. As long as I get it before Black Ops 2 I'll be fine. Worse case you whine to customer service they give you $20 gc and something extra for the inconvenience.

Yes, and I have not only received the 1000 pending Dishonored points, but I was able to print out my certificate today. The pending points are important because they become valid 30-35 days from the date you preordered. Is the program supposed to work that way? No, it's not advertised that way but it does. So, given that the have chosen to run it in a way different than advertised, I don't feel bad about calling them out for posting the pending points for everyone who preordered RE6, but not the Anthology that I preordered.

Umm...it came out this week. So the only people that got their points already are the ones that call and complain.

I preordered Dishonored in August. My game shipped from Best Buy on Thursday of last week. It arrived on Tuesday morning and by Tuesday night, the points were pending. My points posted today and I was able to print my certificate. So, no, I didn't need to complain. Everyone I have seen post here and elsewhere already has their RE6 points pending. Mine don't appear anywhere other than the basic 2X points plus Silver bonus, so that's why I'm concerned. RE6 has been out for ten days now. The points typically start pending within 3-5 days.
