RZ page is playing mind game with me again. Had 191 points with 1,306 points pending this morning and now it's back to 191 points with only 279 points pending.

Odd that it changes so much like that. I feel it'll be back to normal tomorrow morning.

My points has taken as long as 2 weeks to show up as pending.

The transaction shows up in a timely fashion though.

Do I panic? No. I assume their system is lagging big time on my account. Why the lag? Don't know. All I know is that the end result has always worked the way it should. Whether I call on the 28th day to get the points, or give them a few weeks... end result is still the same.

Win.

I have had 3 preorders so far work fine, I have never had a transaction show up first without the 1,000 points and then the 1,000 points added later.

Add on the fact that anthology is special edition and yes there is a reason to doubt if it will ever be added.

big news from best buy. they will price match online retailers this holiday season. this is a pretty big deal when you combine with the rz credit, and possibly 60 (silver) days to price match.

only question is what the "holiday season" is exactly date wise

I'd reckon 11/24-12/26. They probably don't want too big of a window.

Called my Best Buy about this. They are saying it starts immediately but does not include accessories (not sure what that entails), install services, and geek squad services (including the protection plans). So it seems like it will include video game systems and games (which is awesome!!!) as well as everything else they sell like appliances and stuff.

These are the following sites they will price match:
  • Amazon.com
  • apple.com
  • buy.com
  • circuitcity.com
  • dell.com
  • lowes.com
  • sears.com
  • walmart.com
  • tigerdirect.com
  • target.com
  • staples.com
  • newegg.com
  • officemax.com
  • officedepot.com
  • hp.com
  • homedepot.com
  • hhgreg.com

Yep, I went to price match Newegg's Yakuza Dead Souls yesterday and was shocked when they pulled up their PM list and Newegg was on there. This is gonna be fun! Or bad...for my wallet. I like buying at BB to get RZ points, and it's literally 3 minutes from my house, so it's convenient.

Also, my Dishonored bonus points posted nicely. I am loving Best Buy this year!

The only downside is the tax/gas, but you can also call bestbuy.com and they will price match over the phone for you and most of the time there is free shipping, so that can save on gas, but it'll take a while to get it. It is nice thanks to the RZ stuff, earning points and using points on amazon stuff is very useful.

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.

Not at all this is where news about pm'ing titles will leak generally since so many people are in the same boat looking for a match w/i the same buying window.

Since the pm topic came up PC Richard has an crazy TV promo 3 TV's for $1400 & all of them are from Samsung. Obviously, getting the match BB would be better since you'd be getting at least another $25 in RZ certs

It was a joke. :lol:

My points will eventually come. I got close to 20 days before I will get to enjoy them anyways.

lowes.com

Didn't realize Best Buy sold tools, plants, and light fixtures...

In all seriousness, I will believe this once Best Buy updates their PM Policy online. All these news outlets have reported it yet there is no Official Word from Best Buy themselves. Best Buy employees are typicially not the most informed people. They have denied price match for years and that isn't going to change overnight for most of those Customer Service employee minds. I am glad yours allows it but didn't I remember hearing yours was doing that prior to this "announcement"?

Lowes sells appliances....Best Buy price matches Toys R Us, Target, and Wal-Mart. I don't remember Best Buy selling groceries, full line of action figures and toys (they carry them once and a while, but only small numbers of big sellers), or fresh produce. Your comment literally makes no sense, it was meant to be funny, but just came off stupid.

When I called the store he read it from a memo, he said they had a meeting about it two days ago. It was already in a public press release, but the actual details were unknown, by me at least, until I called my store.

When I called .com to place an order, she said yes we price match Newegg and amazon now. I then put an order in for store pickup for Yakuza Dead Souls and Binary Domain for $31.78 total.

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.


1. You're right, tax doesn't isn't eligible for points but my 59.99 is. 2. I paid via gift card and credit card. 3. I already tried to add the points myself, I wouldn't have called customer service if I could resolve it myself. The 59.99 points were never added, and when I try to add them it says there were already added. I don't know how they screwed up my transaction but I paid for borderlands in full when I reserved it, and when I picked it up they gave me a receipt that says I returned the game. It's all jacked up.
