I am more surprised by some of the veterans who fail to read the thread and are put to shame by a new CAG. Come on people read the thread. You be surprised by the answer you may find just by reading.

I think I was about 15-ish in line looking at the amount of commemorative coins the person handing them out had left after I got mine. They wanted to split up people who pre-ordered and who didn't pre-order the game but it looked like everyone did have a pre-order. The people working the registers seemed woefully inadequate because it took way longer than expected to ring each person. Now I just have to wait on those pre-order codes via email.

I got the Kmart PM when I picked up my pre-order. Best Buy took the value of the GC off my game so I walked out with AC3 for $42.xx. Plus I got one of the coins. They told me I would still get my $20 RZ in points.

Confirmed that the code is emailed to your account. Picked up my copy at midnight and 30 minutes later my code showed up in my inbox.

I didn't have to wait in line in the cold. Just hung out in my car until 11:50pm and got in line for my coin. I was #10 in my line and probably about 15 people showed up by the time i left. So there's probably a couple of coins left at my store for morning preorders.

FYI folks, don't pre-order online if you plan to pick-up at a midnight opening. My Assassin's Creed 3 pre-order wasn't a part of the midnight opening allocation, and they have no idea when I'll actually be getting my copy (Collector's Edition). It could take up to two weeks to get it in, apparently due to the high demand.

That sucks but I think your store is an exception. My store is pretty good about setting aside all .com orders away from in-store preorders. I saw 6 LE's sitting on the counter for preorders when I just picked mine up. Did you ever get an email from your store notifying you that your order was going to be ready for pickup today?

Any advice. You seem to have gotten a great deal getting the $20 Off with the (kmart $10 gc in the total). I am stopping by later on today. I will report once I pick up my game.

So after the $20 promo, some price matching and a trade in, BBY is basically paying you to play asscreed3. Well done BBY.

I drove to Kmart today and pickup an ad. The deal is on the front page. I just showed them ad and asked for a price match. When I brought up the $10 GC they said they would take if off the final price. I just hope my RZ points show up without any hassles contacting CS. Best Buy made this day one purchase worth it.

Have people gotten their pre order bonus codes for ac3 yet? I preordered online for in-store pickup. Haven't received anything yet.

Mine was printed on the receipt and then they emailed me a code 10 minutes after.

Do you guys think I can Price Match AC3 and use the GCU B2G1 in one transaction, or should I price match after I use the coupon?

Log into your reward zone account and find the transaction for your preorder, and it should tell you which system. I think you need the receipt to get back your $5 deposit as well, and you can also print that from the same website.

I did what you said but on the RewardZone website it shows "PS-X360-ASSASSIN'S CREED 3".

Then you pre-ordered the XBox 360 version.

I was so excited to get the AC3 coin that I forgot about the steelbook and they never gave me one. Wondering if I should go back this morning and try to get it. Did anyone else get the steelbook at Best Buy?

They should have given you the steelbook when you pre-ordered the game (if they had any instock). Did you pre-order for in-store pickup?

Yes, I pre-ordered in store (not online) a couple weeks ago. I'll give them a call, hopefully they still have some in stock.

Posted in another thread, but posting here as well for more specialized takes. Basically I want to know how to do the PM for an In Store Pick Up AC3 without losing the $20 RZ cert:

As for PMing that price AND getting your RZ cert, that's definitely YMMV. I've been on the receiving end of some dirty looks for some PM attempts (and been shot down) and this sounds like one of those, but you may have better luck than I have. Just be truthful and not sleazy about it, you may get away with it. I think you may have better luck if it's not listed on the receipt that the cert was applied to your account (I actually don't think it is) so you can come back and get it PM'd later on today or another day; not sure how that would go though, but good luck!

I know people have PM'd other titles in the RZ cert process, just obviously not this close to/on release.

Also, the BB is pretty far away and I did In-Store Pick Up. Would I just be able to do a PM via BB's customer service number or do I have to do it in store?



Anyone else know specifics? Have never PM'd at BB before. Someone else in that other thread said you can only PM In Store Pick Up items through BB's online customer service.

You gotta call customer service. Find the number on bestbuy.com. If you try in store they will cancel your original transaction.

You never bothered to ask if they were doing a midnight? Not every store had one because of their budgets and pre-order numbers.

So has anyone been able to price match AC3 at BB yet and still keep your $20 pre-order bonus? Newegg has it for $47.99 after coupon, Kmart has it for $49.99... I'm hoping for at least one :D
