How come I don't see any reference to BLACK OPS II on Best Buy websites for the $20 bonus?


It SHOULD be showing on the RZ website when you are signed in but with the updates for the 2013 new titles, this was accidentally taken down. That will get updated but it is taking longer than planned.

Be ABSOLUTELY ASSURED that Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Halo 4 and Far Cry 3 (360 and PS3 versions of these) are all part of this promotion.

For my last two preorders, ACIII and RE6, I never got a "it's ready for pickup" email. I got the email the evening before with the bar code and just showed that email to the guy at the service desk. The pickup went w/o a hitch. I wouldn't worry about getting an email tonight/tomorrow.

In a worst case scenario, you could just bring in your RZ card and order confirmation and they should be able to find it.


Yes, but you still have to get the e-mail saying "your order will be ready for pickup tomorrow" and none of us got that either. If you don't get the notice, it means they haven't received the inventory at the store and your order hasn't been processed for pickup, at least if you preordered online. They may still have enough copies, but given that many of us want the $20 preorder credit, we aren't looking to mess with things and its possible the online order copies haven't been received at the stores yet, especially if people who preordered online for shipping with express service still haven't seen theirs ship yet. This is very worrying on a number of levels.

Not sure if this was ever answered...
I tried to do a price match today on MoH. The new system wouldn't allow my CS person to do it. She then processed it like an Exchange and claimed that it shouldn't affect any promotions on it. Should I be concerned?

I don't think you should be, seeing as how that's how the transaction for pickup is normally done anyway. I just had a return/rebuy done (apparently) on an NBA 2K13 PM and I'm waiting for the verdict on that one.

Looks like dumbass people on Ebay are paying $20 and up to $35 for the Best Buy armor set on Ebay. Probably want to list it now if you selling it before the flood comes. Get it the flood.....thanks i'll be here all week. Shoulda know it'd be worth something retarded, I promised my code to a kid at work. He's the biggest Halo fanboy I know haha.

Got the night off unexpectedly so looks like i'll be at Best Buy at midnight after all. Halo this week, CoD next taking bets on the worst crowds I say twice as many for CoD.

Dam that is just insane. Good for those who are not doing so well with money. I am giving my code away. Although I wish I could capitalize on it.

I'm wondering if it's worth it to keep my blops 2 le preorder or just get the standard edition. I'm pretty sure it'll be harder to pm the Le over the regular copy. :/

True. But the enterprising person would see the opportunity to sell all of the exclusive items in the LE to help pay for the game.

I'm not doing it though. Nuketown Zombies 4 life.

I don't think so since they are holding your copy at the original store... You don't wanna cancel that one either as that's your $20 credit one.

Say $15-20 after fees for the codes + $20 credit + $40 trade in value minimum = free rental and profit even if you don't care much about Halo. I'm happy with the game for $40 he can have my codes.

If I'm doing a pre-order/store pickup online they don't charge you till you pick it up right? I think they might be a hold on the money for the pre-order on your card? I want to trade in a couple games tomorrow before picking it up to pay for it.

Sounds right, I don't think they actually charge you till you pick it up and show the card you ordered with and then ring it out but WE could be wrong...

Just got confirmation from the Best Buy forum that my Halo 4 LE preorder should be just fine when I go to pick it up tonight. Good luck to everyone else in picking up theirs as well!

I did it with Assassin's Creed. It took a little longer than normal, but it went through and my points are pending.

IIRC with debit cards they put a pending charge on your account from the time you place the order and with credit cards they might not do that..

I don't know if they'll let you change the form of payment AND keep your preorder. I always get double talk when I want to do something with an in-store pickup order.

Was it listed as free release date delivery, or was it delivered on release day when you picked some standard shipping?

I didn't go to the Borderlands 2 midnight release and they had boxes of posters when I went to pick up my copy after work. Halo is arguably way more popular but I wouldn't be surprised if you get one when picking it up.

Is there anyone who preordered Assassin's Creed III before they implemented the $20 RZ certificate (like half a year ago) and had their points posted? I'm getting a little paranoia with it not being posted (not even pending). What's worse is that I also made another preorder in that same order (Bioshock Infinite). I'm starting to think I should just cancel that Bioshock Infinite preorder and make a new one to avoid any trouble.
