So my RZ certificate wouldn't scan because I didn't have enough black ink in my printer so the ink on the cert. was sort of faint, the guy said if I come back tomorrow with a better print, he can add the certificate in. My question is, will this not let me get my $20 RZ certificate from PO BLOPS?

Yeah if u do a return n rebuy that would only cause problems. Why didnt they just type in the code? Or show it from your email / rz account?

Just sell your code on ebay and use the money to buy a season pass. People will be buying up the Nuketown Zombie codes and challenge coins.

Trying to figure out why I preordered this...

Me and my buddy get to my BB (Springfield, MO) at 11:15pm and the line is already fairly long. We are told by the greeter that preorders are to go straight to the regular checkout stations. I think, "Good, we don't have to wait in that line."

...I'm wrong.

We have to wait in the FIRST line (which isn't very long) to (I guess) verify our preorders. My buddy's CSR tells him she doesn't know how to do online preorders (then why are you working tonight?). I show my order number and the CSR verifies and prints my physical receipt to pick up my copy. Then my buddy goes to the same CSR and gets his as well. Meanwhile, the other line has gotten massive in the last 10 minutes. We move further with our receipts and are back at the main entrance. At this point, the main greeter tells us that we are now supposed to go to the back of the main line (non preorders)...

WHAT?!

Why preorder then? Why is there ONE LINE to get your copy of the game? I would think that there would be two lines, where at the end of each you get your copy. One for preorders, one for non-preorders. Why there weren't copies of the game at the end of the first line we had to wait in is beyond me. We are currently in a line that's snaking all throughout the BB store. And by preordering, are now ridiculously further back than we would have been.

I realize that this release night would be busy either way, but not separating the lines makes zero sense to me. And to have to wait LONGER makes even less sense. Anyone else experience this?

I'll also add that I'm GCU Unlocked so I get the $20 RZ...but what if I wasn't? Guy in front of me thought it would at least be worth it for the Nuketown 2025 map but turns out everyone gets it as more of an "early adopter" perk than a preorder bonus. Codes are in the case.



You need a new Best Buy. I had all the people at my store who preordered reprint their receipts if the didn't have them immediately, we could start ringing people out at 11 pm, and immediately at midnight I started handing out games to the already rung out line. The main rush was out the door by 12:06. Sounds like your store just doesn't understand how to work a midnight opening.

Did i miss something about midnight releases? So here is my story, went to best buy sat. see if i could pre-order the game so i can get the $20 cert. guy says no go. But that i could go at midnight to buy it , and it would be like a party and giving out prizes. So I say "Badass" jk.

Well i get out of work early and get to BB at 1140 and see a line outside. I'm all excited because i've never been to a midnight release and never won any prizes or played for some so i thought it would be a cool experience. Wait in line for 5 min and see around 4 or 5 people walk out of the store and they have posters and stuff and hear one guy say he won a gift card.

At this point i'm like WTF. I thought it started at midnight. SO midnight rolls around and nada. Just get in line, get the game, and out i went. :cry: i didn't even get the poster, but i was too tired to tell them about it. My wife wanted me to come home and get food on the way.

I know i saw the fliers correctly and while i was waiting in line i they still had them up , it clearly states join us at midnight for a free for all and win prizes. Lying bastards. Well, anyways i got the game no biggie just wont do a midnight anything again. Although my wife did want me to play since i haven't been playing in a while and she was giving me a hard time about buying it, she even fixed up the bed room so i could play comfortably. ;)

P.S. Curse you Adult Manga, now i have an oyster in my pants.

I am guessing the guy was misinformed because you could still pre order Saturday and get the reward certificate. I have done it twice myself for other games in the promotion.

Whatever on the smart phone (i always think about dropping it and having a small tablet around to surf instead)

It sounds like you had an uninformed rep, rz points are like cash. He could have redeemed it, it just sounds like he didnt know how / want to. Get a manager to do it next time or find a new bb if possible.

This was not true for all best buys, the one I went to didn't open until 12:00. We all had to wait outside.

I pre-ordered Halo 4 online the day before Halo 4 was released and got the bonus certificate. I'd call 1-800-Best-Buy and tell them your story them you bought it at Midnight and when you wanted to pre-order on Saturday you were declined. They'd probably send you a $20 gift card.

How many of y'all are getting Far Cry 3?

I suppose ill get it since its the last $20 promo game this year.

I enjoyed the concept of 2, despite its errors. Hope this one is the same, just more improved. I just wish they'd say more about the single player... Only thing I've been seeing is MP previews and articles. I could give a rat's ass about the multiplayer in a game like this..

I already have it preordered, primarily for three reasons:

1. The $20 certificate. :dunce:
2. What I've seen of the single-player looks really good.
3. It's an Ubisoft game, so the price will (hopefully) drop like a rock within 60 days.

I just got back from Best Buy picking up my Black Ops II pre-order, and there was no dog tags. When I asked the girl who checked me out about them, she said she had no idea even though the girl standing next to her asked her if she remember them having a kiosh out before advertising about the pre-order with dog tags hanging on them but the kiosh is gone now. So was the store supposed to give one to me when I pickup my pre-order, or am I just out of luck. No big deal really. I'm just a bit disappointed, because the bonus was the reason why I chose to pre-order from Best Buy and not anywhere else really.
