I hope Fry is on that list.

Still no pending points for RE6. Guessing we will all have to call and get points manually.


Uh just wait it out first ... criminy.

Who will they be pricematching? Amazon? All they do is pricematch BBY and GS.


Retailers who operate in the online space.

So my 1000 points posted for Dishonored today thats makes three days after I picked the game up. I still do not have my 1000 points from my RE6:Archives posted yet which I also picked up on ots release day. Do you think I should try and call already or wait it out for a few more days?

One of the mods at BestBuy.com forums finally responded in relation to RE6 collector's editions:

"You are absolutely correct that the Resident Evil 6 Anthology was an eligible title for the Victory Can Be Pre-Ordered offer, and should garner you the promised 1000 points.

I have reached out to our Reward Zone operations team to see if they could provide more context on the offer in conjunction with these specific SKU's and will update you when I know more. In any event, I am confident we will have all the points distributed within 30 days as expected. Thank you for your continued patience."

Obviously, there was a problem that likely wouldn't have been resolved if nobody brought it up.

I hate to sound like I'm complaining (which I'm not) but I too can join the train and say that my 2k13 points have already posted (online in-store pickup), RE6 archives (online in-store pickup) still doesn't show the 1000 pending, and my dishonored (pre-ordered in store) shows the 1000 pending. I've pre-ordered all previous games on the list as well and all of those points have posted.

Haven't called BB yet but I do think something is up and I'm hoping a phone call doesn't have to be made. After just reading the reply by one of the BB mods though I don't expect I'll have to.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

best buy rewards again shows the purchase i picked up but absolutely no pending victory can be preordered 1000 points, just the standard rzgc 54 bonus points.

i don't have a problem waiting the 30 days for me able to cash in on the promo... but i don't like my time wasted to get things straight. :wall:

it should show the promo bonus pending right as soon as the transaction is visible - and it's not.

+1.

It's all the people who freak out about not getting their points 30 minutes after they pick up their game. STFU and have some patience!

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

is it odd that in the transaction for Dishonored, it shows 1000 points but it doesn't show it in pending points of my running total?

Nobody is upset that they didn't get their points immediately. The problem is that the 1000 points are supposed to show as pending within a reasonable time after pickup which according to everyone here and elsewhere, has been within 3-7 days from pickup. With the collector's editions of RE6, this hasn't happened despite 10 days worth of time passing. I don't think there is anything wrong with raising this issue with Best Buy rather than having to argue with them about it 30-35 days from now when the return window closes. Honestly, if you guys are so upset by this discussion, why are you even in this thread? It's not like BB is adding new titles and the only reason to still be here is to post about the points or any problems anyone might be having with the promotion.

Yeah I have the same thing. That total amount can definitely run behind though. I will get jumps of hundreds of points sometimes well after they are pending in the list. It is all good.

On a personal note I just crossed $2500 so I am Silver another year (already updated). The crazy thing is I spent maybe $100 this year but trades counting have made it pretty easy to get it.

You traded over a thousand? You must be loaded! (in terms of BBY GCs):D

Oh yeah, and:

I am not sure. I do know they do not reset the counter once you make it. It won't reset till the 1st of the year. If that counter is still under $2500 I would imagine you could still get another year if you get to $2500 before Jan 1.

Pretty sure it doesn't stack. I'm up to 5000+ point between some appliance purchases, a new camera, regular purchases, lots of trades, and all the credit card bonus points and mine express February 2014.

It's not that funny. Best Buy just automatically creates used games for every new release and prices it at $45 as a default.

Sorry to spoil your fun.
