You don't earn full points when using pitch-in or gift cards.


I don't think you're supposed to earn any for using GC/PiC

BBYs system just likes to spit out random points when using GCs

Kept going back n forth between regular blops 2 and hardened, now hardened OOS. Will it be available on launch day like Halo 4 Limited? Anybody remember if blops 1 hardened was available on launch day?

My AC3 points are listed and pending. My Halo 4 points are not. Strangely, myrewardzone.bestbuy.com shows Halo 4 as being $11.99, so I'm being shortchanged both bonus points and purchase points. Sadly, my pitch in card was deducted $60+. If I was actually only charged $11.99, I'd be okay with that.


I am in the same boat, my AC3 points posted and is pending, my Halo 4 is showing as 11.99, my pitch in was charged 49$ since I did a price match to Frys. Weird thing is I did a trade in right before this purchase and it is not showing, I am thinking the guy did not scan my rewards card because I only got 40$ on my gift card, no 10% bonus. I think he did not scan my reward card when I did the purchase either.

Don't remember but the MW3 one was definitely harder to find at launch than Halo 4 has been.

It has to do with the exchange. I exchanged Forza for Need for Speed and got 60 points or something. Both of my Halo 4 pre-orders earned points.

Heads-up to Premier Silver members who preordered Borderlands 2: Amazon currently has both versions at slightly reduced prices, though the Amazon listings themselves are hidden in the Marketplace.

:ps3: $51.52
:360: $52.54

I recommend taking a screencap or printout of the price just to be safe. :)

Yea you get points for loading pitch in cards, not using.

Good deal if you couldn't get in on the Fry's PM for $49.99.

Did anyone have any luck getting the Halo 4/12+1 xbox live card/800 point deal AND the $20 cert for preordering?

I figured no, but I've been tempted to cancel my blops 2 preorder and try it.

Well I got the deal ($20 off the Live Card) but they did not add the 800 points to the receipt so that is my first issue. The transaction is there now but no bonus yet but I do not think it will be a problem. It should post in a few days. I am doing the same thing for BLOPS2 because I am giving my nephews the Gold cards for Xmas. Now to figure out how to get $10 for the missing 800 points.

Edit: I also noticed my GTA V pre-order is listed as a pre-order now on the My Rewardzone website. I hope that means there will less issues with codes and stuff in the future.

Is anyone else still waiting to get the $20 for Resident Evil 6? The OP says to give it up to 35 days but it's been a bit beyond that.

I did it in store. Hopefully we will get a similar thread to this one.

The printout of the promo helped a ton...even if the rep did not add the 800 pints for me :).

A moderator on the BBY forums (I think) said that they were forced to only show the deal to those who are logged in as Gamers Club members or something; it's probably because Activision doesn't like deals like that being visibly advertised for a CoD game (don't ask me why, it's how they act).

You should probably call them if it's been more than 30 days.

It was only ever advertised on the myrz site when logged in. Activision doesn't like deals like this attached to their games.

I preordered BLOPS 2...then the receipt printer decided to shred up the receipt. He printed out another, but now it says "Duplicate Receipt." There won't be any problems picking the gmae up, right?

No. This is the same process that happens if you ever misplace your preorder receipt and you go to pick up the game. They print out a dupe receipt and then fill the preorder. You're good.

Odd. Mine says $60. But rewardzone says $11.99.

In any case, after three/four days, my 1000 points showed up.

Ok. I called to verify that they have the correct amount on their end that was paid, and they said 59.94 or something which is right once you subtract the $5 preorder cost from the taxed total.

The website sucks so much. I don't understand how it can just put random totals for things when that's all we have to go by as a customer.
