Saw someone referring to B2G1 in a recent post, but wanted to ask if we can still get the $20 RZ after PM TRU B1G1 50% off?

Typically only if you are within a Frys B&M location. My store has denied them in the past. Nearest store is 4 hours away.

If that's still active when you get the game, there's no harm in trying.

I predict there will be plenty of opportunities to PM Far Cry 3. Especially if your Silver Premier.

...now BLOPS2 is another story...if you missed out on PM'ing the TRU $10 off deal (like I did), you may not get another chance.

I PM's both Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 on Saturday without any issues. The girl in customer service just asked me if I had an ad and I told her that Fry's only did online ads and that they didn't do print ads. I'm not entirely sure if that's true but I really didn't want to deal with it so I just told her that. She went over to a computer and came back about 5 minutes later and then did the PM without saying anything. I got a $20 gift card back so I was pretty happy. Still waiting on my points for both though.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo you crazy!!! Look at this guy!!

But in all seriousness, no. Because each store has its own preorder amount. The same policy applies to Gamestop too

I'm a Silver member, but I think you should call the normal 1-888-BESTBUY line, say "More Options" (or dial 4, depending on the menu format you get) and ask to speak with someone about Gamers Club Unlocked. Then explain the situation to whomever you get after that. If that doesn't resolve the situation, I suggest joining the BBY forums (if you haven't already) and posting a patient, detailed, non-angry thread about this issue; a mod should take care of you within 2-3 business days.

I believe it's 5 days after the game's release date, though I'm not positive.

So the reason I had asked about picking it up at a different location was because I bailed on my BLOPs2 preorder from one store because I really wanted a hardened ed. I ended up getting a hardened edition at a different best buy about 9 days after release. The RZ points show up (still pending) in my account.

So it appears, based on what happened with my BLOPs2 experience, that the pick up time frame is greater than 4 days and you may use a different store. I was just hoping for some "official" policy regarding the program. I do not think it is like gamestop where you do need to pick up your preorder at the same location.

I asked this at my Best Buy recently. They said if it's for a regular edition, then yes. But not for limited/special editions

Yes you are able to do this and still get the bonus 1000 RZ points.

BUT only the store you preorder at will have a reserved copy for you.

I'll give two instances from a previous title:

1) you preorder the regular edition of Black Ops 2 at store A. Store B has a hardened edition so you go there and pick it up while exchanging your preorder slip for the regular edition from store A

2) You preorder the hardened edition at store A. Store B has a midnight release while store A doesn't. ONLY store A will have a hardened edition reserved specifically for you. You may be able to find extra HE at store B and purchase it there and still qualify for the 1000 RZ points.

Basically to qualify for the 1000 RZ points you need to preorder any edition of the game and then buy any edition of the game within 7 days of release at any store. You also need to exchange your preorder at the time of purchase.

Doing the above qualifies you.
