Short answer: Reloadable gift card you can use to consolidate Best Buy gift cards.


Thanks.saw the video. So it's a basic gift card with max $2000 limit, but has wish list features, no exp date, and no fee. Kind of cool. hate carrying 4+ gift cards

Thanks man, did a test with one of my cards. Hasn't shown up yet in my order history but the balance on the gift card is gone. So i shall see if I did it right. Otherwise might have to contact the personal shopper thing.

Patience. By morning you should receive an email confirming your "order" and two more confirming the value added to the Pitch In Card (the first titled "A friend added to your Pitch In Card", the second "Pitch In Card contribution complete"). It usually isn't immediate.

This hasn't been my experience. If they don't go through in <5 minutes, something is wrong.

Definitely not the case--once it took several hours to receive confirmation emails for adding to my Pitch In Card. Now, if you don't get any notice within 24 hours after the transaction...then yes, something might be wrong.

Here's what we have so far for AC3 week one PMs goes:
$47.99at Toys R Us (doorbuster sale 11/2-11/3)
$49.99 at K-Mart w/ $10 gaming coupon (from what I've read BB PMing the $10 coupon is YMMV?)
$49.99 at Frys

$48/$50 with $20 in RZ certificates seems like a great incentive to pick up AC3 as opposed to waiting till Black Friday.

Anybody that normally goes to best buys midnight releases know if they get pretty filled up? I went to the midnight release for borderlands at best buy and I showed up at like 11:45 and I was literally 3rd in line with like 2 other ppl behind me when I left. I ask because I really want that assassins creed coin but do not want to wait in the cold for it or wait longer than an hour just to get it.

My local one in SF had like 8-10 people for gears of war 3. You can probably go to your store at like 11:45ish and be done and out the door by like 12:15-12:30ish depending on how fast/slow they do it

also, do I just need to get a copy of the ad to PM at BB? I've never actually done it before....

Whenever I've PM'd something I used RZ for, I got the points back to the extent that they were the final method of payment for the price difference. One time they did work like a reduction in price, so I had to get an override but ended up getting cash back, so prety sweet. I've heard the "official" rule is that there's a hierarchy where you first get cash back, then gift cards, then RZ points. I don't know how that's triggered, etc. Your best bet would be to use the RZ Certs on something you don't plan on returning/PMing etc so you can get rid of them.


RZ Certificates do NOT affect price matching. They are as good as cash/gift card in the eyes of Best Buy. They act as a coupon to an extent, but because you have to spend money or buy items to get them it will not work against a price match. On a receipt it clearly shows you used a RZ certificate. If any store denies a price match due to you using a certificate they are making stuff up.


Ok, as long as I would get the RZ points back, I'd be happy. Guess I've been living under a false assumption all this time. :D

Here's what we have so far for AC3 week one PMs goes:

$48/$50 with $20 in RZ certificates seems like a great incentive to pick up AC3 as opposed to waiting till Black Friday.


Thought about going to Target for AC3 as part of B2G1 but I might end up going with Best Buy after seeing all these PM opportunities. The only other game I really wanted as part of the B2G1 was Most Wanted and I have that pre-ordered from Newegg for $47.99.

I don't think you need an ad, but it helps significantly with the PMing process; otherwise the employee will have to look for the sale online and/or call the store in question to confirm the sale price.

Actually I believe the time increases the more you add to the card. The first transaction is about 3 minutes. Every other transaction adds about 2 minutes for it to process: 3 mins, 5 mins, 7 mins, 9 mins, etc. This is an approximation.

My $20 bonus is pending from my MoH (preorder), Forza H LE (preorder) and Dishonored purchase from Tuesday! It was a convoluted process but I was able to use my $20 bonus for buying Borderlands 2, use the B2G1 deal, snag the Forza preorder DLC and (apparently) the $20 bonus for MoH.

As much as I dislike GS, at least the pickup process is fast.

MW3 was by far the biggest in Columbus, OH. There was over 100+ people that came through the doors according to the gaming supervisor who was running it.

Gears 3 had 35-40 at midnight and a few more came slightly after try let us in. By far this was the best swag giveaway.

AC:R/SR3/Rayman was pretty dead.

Didn't make it for Skyrim, but apparently there was 3-5 people fully dressed in armor. Heard it was a good turn out.

I Forget the rest, but to sum up; its highly dependent on the area/game.

I don't think that's how it works since I once had a transaction take a few hours to process, but the next one took less than 10 minutes to do so. :???:

I don't think their going to restrict the deal and not let you pay more. Pretty much means free game has to be 59.99 or less.

Except that it says "Buy two games priced $59.99 or less and get one free"...

http://www.bestbuy.c...id=abcat0700000

It's SUPPOSED to be $59.99 or less and all signage indicates this. I believe the system allows any price ,BUT saying it "shouldn't be a problem" is far from the truth. If the employee knows anything (like literacy) and/or cares its a no go.

Thanks for the reply, there's a bunch of thugs and gangstas in my area so maybe there won't be a big line for AC3, especially with Halo and COD coming out in the 2 weeks after AC3, hopefully most people won't want to line up for all 3 games

I woul love to get AC3 using my credit, especially to nab those promo points, but I never finished Brotherhood, and never even purchased Revelations.

I feel so out of the loop... I don't think it's worth all the re-investing of my time, especially with BLOPS 2 right around the corner.

You should be good on both. Rules for Halo 4 states Saturday prior, I'd expect the same for Ass 3, but I've heard of them being taken up until the night before.

No, not too late. Believe you can still preorder ACIII through Monday but I'd get in by Sunday if you can. And then same thing for Halo but you have another week as that doesn't come out until 11/6.

With the get $20 deal for preorder and purchase for Unlocked members, not a bad deal to get these ones day one.

Can hear what you are saying about AC series, I was never drawn in to those stories and characters. BUT this one is different. It is in the US during the Revolutionary War so really should pull in more Americans from a content standpoint. If you haven't seen the commercials you haven't been watching TV as they are everywhere. :)

Understand, only so much time to game but I really think this one is worth buying and very different from the other AC games.
