The 45 held through openning day for NCAA 13 at TRU even though the website said the price would end the day before release. Lots of guys here PM day 1 by pulling it up on their smart phone. That's the grapevine I am using. Might not workout this time but it did last time so worth keeping an eye on to get Madden for 25.


If you are picking it up on day 1, can you post your results on this,it would be much appreciated by all? Also, are you doing in-store pick up like I am to get the $10 back? It sounds like if this works at all, it's gonna be in store only. For me to PM I would have to call BB.com and the show on phone thing won't work but if you can pull it off, I'll get my azz down there to pick up and get on the phone on day 1(assuming the price holds on day 1 which I seriously doubt, the NCAA 13 thing sounds like a fuckup).

For some reason, Madden is not "available" for pre-order/pickup at my local Best Buy, but is at another location about 20 minutes farther. Actually 2 of the 3 stores are greyed out and "unavailale". I guess I'll wait a few more days.

was hoping someone could clarify this for me. Today I signed up for GamersClub [Unlock]. Got home, preordered Madden 13 and noticed when I was checking out it said "$20 Reward zone certificates: see how" (which is obviously the preorder GamerClub [unlock] thing) and then it also says "Free $10 saving code: find out how(which is is for the instore pick up) when you spend over $50.

When I checked out, I didn't see any sort of notification about either the $20 Reward zone from the preorder gamerclub bonus or the $10 savings coupon for instore pick up.

Is that normal?

Yes this is normal, the bonus 1,000 RZ points won't show up as pending until you pickup your order.

But...
You got to make sure your RZ account is listed as GZ Unlocked status on the MyRZ.com website under manage profile.
Plus you also need to make sure your RZ account number is properly linked to your bestbuy.com account.

if you buy two copies of Borderlands 2, will you get two $20 bestbuy gift cards? i want to get a copy for my cousin and one for me.

Can I purchase multiple of the same title and still qualify for the promotion?
You can only receive one $20 certificate for each individual title, regardless of version or platform.

You will not be getting a $20 BB gift card, instead you are actually getting 1,000 bonus RZ points which you can redeem for a $20 RZ certificate.

Ya i know its 1K RZ points which = a 20 dollar certificate, i mean will i get the 1000 points for each order or just for one if i preorder one? Advanced says no, but i read the fine print and dont see anything about a limit or anything. Are you sure its a no? I tried calling Best Buy to ask about this but the person on the phone was clueless. They said this promo ended saturday o_O


Has anyone tried getting 2 copies of a game? Anyone know for sure if it works or not?

Sad to see such little love for Far Cry 3. The previews really make me want that game. If they solved some issues from FC2 (Repsawning and Fast Travel) I think the game is going to be awesome. You can be eaten by a fucking shark!! How cool is that.

I think part of the issue with Far Cry as well is that it will go pretty cheap soon after release.

I saw the same thing, and I'm very happy about it! Maybe CAG gamers are overall different then the majority of the gamers, but I love how the votes are spread out for a large variety rather then seeing everyone pre-ordering one title. makes me look forward to the holiday rush on these games to get some multiplayer action!

Fine by me...:) With my trade credit saved and silver membership I plan to get every game I pre-order for $20. $60 at launch minus $20 RZ cert minus $20 for $40 PM in 60 days. I am getting AC3 for this exact reason...they drop in price.

So i searched and confirmed that Best Buy puts a hold on your card for preorders, but i still have a question, (sorry if its a stupid one) does that hold stay there until the game ships?

Quite new at Best Buy and their rewards program

I'm going to pre-order madden today then stack that 20 for fifa, and then the 20 for fifa for black ops... $120 for 3 is a win for me since i would have paid 60 for both black ops and fifa anyway

I really want to do something similar to this as well to take full advantage of this deal, but the only game I'm really interested in getting Day 1 from the list is Halo 4. Resident Evil 6 might be another candidate, but that is a game that I figure will drop pretty quickly in price after its released. We'll see though.

Looking over the list of games, I notice some of them list the $20 offer and some don't. Are those that don't state the $20 promotion still being honored?

Will probably end up doing Madden 13, Borderlands 2, NBA 2k13, BLOPS 2, and Halo 4. Might even add Assassisn Creed 3 to the list. Since I am a silver member I have 60 days to PM right?

Edit: also, as I recall from last year, there were some problems with people getting the $20 credit if they bought with a gift card. Is that still an issue?

If looking at product page, you get the $20 reward cert also for the Collection and Anthology version also.

What the hell is a USB Whale Oil Lamp for preordering Dishonored? I am heading up to Bestbuy to preorder Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6, Dishonored and NBA 2k13, but want to make sure I know what Im looking for when asking about the Whale Lamp.

Just did some calculations and wow this deal is killer for those of you who are premier silver members (60 day price match FTW!)
Example (games i will be pre-ordering):

Madden 13- Pay $60 up front. Receive $20 reward zone + the $10 promo. Net value= $30. Now if you are able to pm toys r us for $45 over the phone if their promo is still going on, then the net value of the game will be $15! Even if you don't PM toys r us, im pretty sure in the 60 day period, some retailer will have it for $40-$50.
Madden 13- $15

Borderlands 2- you will basically receive $20 in RZ making the net value $40. However, with the 60 day PM policy, you have until November 24 to PM. I believe Black Friday is on the 23rd. SO you can potentially get the game for a net value of $10 if the game goes on sale for $30! It will be at the very most $40, I believe.
Borderlands 2- $20

Resident Evil 6- Net value $40 after the RZ promo. There is a good chance this game will also go on sale for $30-$40 on Black Friday.
RE6- $20

NBA 2K13- $40 after RZ. I believe wal mart had 2k12 for only $30 during BF last year. Still at the very most $40.
NBA 2k13- $20

... you get the picture basically.

You can end up getting Madden 13 + Borderlands 2 + RE5 + NBA2k13 + Dishonored + AssCreed 3 + BLOPS 2 + Halo 4 on launch day with pre order bonuses for a net price of only $155+tax !

Of course you're going to have to be patient for all the points to come in and you may not be able to use points you receive from one game on another game since the releases dates are so close to each other. But if you are a premier silver member and have patience, you can get a spectacular deal!

Sounds great except for the items that are on sale Black Friday only, I for one would not want to deal with BestBuy customer service line in store on that day. Also I thought most stores dont let you price match special black Friday sales?

I am premier Silver and bet my money Dishonored, RE6, and Madden 13 will see a sale before the 60 day PM window closes.
