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.


you are correct, i just remembered that best buy does not allow PM on black friday through saturday. But still games like Halo 4 + BLOPS 2 will probably see some discount during the Christmas sales. AssCreed 3 usually always hits $40 weeks before christmas. NBA 2k13 will for sure go on sale on BF but not sure if it will go on sale outside that day.

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 preordered some of the games from bestbuy.com the first week of July. The holds are still there. Best Buy just issues a new hold when the other ones expire.

The way AssCreed games go, it usually drops by $20 within a couple of weeks of release. Then again I think I read somewhere that UBI Soft is banking on this game, and spent millions in advertisments on this game.

I highly doubt blops 2 or halo 4 will drop within 60 days.

So if I read the OP correctly you can only get 1 $20 reward certificate per title per system. I wondered if I had 3 copies of Madden:ps3: preordered if I'd get $20 per transaction. Anyone have any knowlegde of this this?

Yeh PS3 4 me too and yes, it was verified by enuf and htz. Wish I was one of the lucky biatches that preordered Borderlands Ultimate Loot edition before it sold out-that gets a 1000 reward points too. I just did the standard version and hopin that someone at my BB cancels their Loot preorder or just flat out can't pony up all the dough for it, so I can swoop in. I already asked and they said they will only hold these orders for a week and then they're fair game.

Getting Unlocked tomorrow & I plan on pre-ordering Madden (online so I get the $10 savings on top of the $20), Fifa, Black Ops 2, NBA 2k.. Warfighter & Assassins' Creed I'll consider later, I'm still on the fence w/ those ones.

Spending $150 for $240 isn't that bad especially after the GS to BB flip. No money out of my pocket being spent for the games.:D

Do we know anything yet about a Hardened Black Ops 2 edition? I'd love to get $20 off of that, essentially saving $30, knowing I'd get Elite.

Modern Warfare 3 went on sale end of Dec in 2011 for $40 at BBY. You will have until as late as Jan 9th for Halo 4 and Han 16th for BLOPS II it to have a sale with the 60 PM. BLOPS II is getting a sale for certain someplace. In fact, I would be willing to bet every game on the list sees some type of sale within the 60 day window.

Was looking at last years pre order 5 games and get $100 thread and most if not all games dropped, including skyrim. Too bad price matching won't work on BF , I remember Walmart had several titles for $28.

The 5/100 deal was so weird last year. I ended up not doing it because they put a bunch of titles on sale for $29.99 on BF and I had my welcome packet B2G1 coupon so I ended up with AC:Rev, Batman: AC and Uncharted 3 for $63. Then for some weird reason BBY gave me the $100 cert anyway even though I returned those 3 games. I wonder if the B2G1 game coupons from GCU have any new restrictions on them to prevent a Black Friday double dip?

Many of us got a random invite to it. I got it 2 years ago and for some reason they kept it going for another year. It runs out in Feb so I am hoping I get it again but I am going to be at like $1200 in trade/purchases so I doubt it. Others use a BBY credit card to earn points which is the smart way to go if you pay it off every month.

yes. you've figured it out.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

i pay for everything with my BB cc. bills, gas, groceries, taco bell, etc. It's not hard to hit the mark if you do that.

on a side note, I'm finally gonna get GC unlocked today before I trade in NCAA 13 and preorder Madden tonight.

I am not sure about the pre-order thing but the promo actually ends on 8/31. The cert is good till 9/30. I would say no since you won't be picking up until after 8/31 or 9/30 but you might want to check the other thread. Someone might know better over there.

no, the game must be picked up before 8/31 to get the cert. doesn't matter when you preorder it, it's when you pick it up.

the promo ends 8/31, the $10 coupons expire on 9/30

They don't send you the promo code till you pick it up... so.... no.

Yes, as long as you use the code before that. Obviously if you wait to use the code when the game releases you're SOL.

  • Eligible pre-orders must be placed and fulfilled during promotion.
^It must meet that requirement in the fine print. The promotion ends on 8/31 not 9/30. 9/30 is just the expiration date for the $10 promo codes on in-store pickup orders fulfilled in the month of August. You can't fulfill a pre-order like RE6 during the promotion since the promotion expires before the game even comes out.

Anyone remember what day prior to NCAA coming out that the $20 offer disappeared online? I really want to try to make it out to BB to trade in some games to put towards Madden but I know it's getting close. I tried searching but that was turning into a pain in the ass and I was hoping someone might just remember.
