I know, but I have BB credit I'd prefer to use. Will probably go with Amazon though since BB has no incentive other than me just not having to use real money.


You can use BB credit to buy Amazon giftcards in store.

You went to the store to preorder? Why not preorder online and get the extra $10? It is still available for preorder online right now...


Sorry, I meant I pre ordered online for my local store, since it shows stock now. Update: I just got emailed 2 Andrew Luck codes.

I preordered the Madden game using a BB gift card and because on line it showed that it was not available for preorder at any store near me, I chose shipping (free being a silver premiere member).

It was available to preorder and pickup this morning and I wanted to be able to pick it up tomorrow plus get the additional $10 off promo for in store pickup.

The question is how can I still get the $20 preorder Gamers Unlocked bonus for preordering if it is limited to one per title and I cancel my original order?

Most of us CAGs can only speculate as to what happens when you cancel a pre-order and then redo it for the titles that are part of the $20 promo. I would suggest you to ask a Best Buy community connector about it on the Best Buy forums.

Since my NCAA order went smoothly, I have no fears about getting the RZ Cert. The DLC should be in my email sometime tomorrow afternoon/Wednesday morning too.

I'm not doing the in-store pickup thing, but only because I prefer PMing in-store as I've never been turned down before.

As always, all of the Best Buy employees at my store have NO idea what is going on.

So my question is: I preordered Madden 13 and did an in-store pickup today. I know there was a promotion for a $10 gift card/code or something if you did in-store pick-up. Of course they had no idea what I was talking about.

Where/how will I get this $10 card/code?

EDIT: Can you get this code multiple times? I just placed a separate order for an in-store pick-up just now because it doesn't ship.

TRU's price for Madden is still $45 online. Hoping it sticks around for another 3+ hours so I can get my PM on later today.

Edit: Store Pickup Not Available is now showing. Booty. I'll still try it. Couldn't hurt.

Just picked mine up and they were going to price match (return/rebuy) but they then said they couldn't do it for 2 hours. I was kinda worried about still getting the $20 credit if they did that anyway. Also it was showing not available for in store pickup before I left.

If you ordered online for store pickup are you calling or going in store for the price match?


Preordered in-store a few weeks ago. I'm not a fan of PMing games over the phone (and $10 isn't enough to make me want to). I tried to do it with NCAA and I got the run around for 15-20 minutes and gave up. But if you order online with in-store, you need to call in.

Yeah? With in-store pickup, I shouldn't have that problem and the girls at my local store are always super helpful, so I'll definitely try it. Thanks.

My Luck code will NOT work. Tried entering it every way possible on the Madden main screen. Never even got my Rice or Walsh code. BB is the most unorganized company ever. ALL the people who didnt preorder were out of the store (20 or so) before my buddy and I, and we were the ONLY ones there who preordered it. What the hell is the point of even preordering. They couldnt figure out how to redeem our preorders. My buddies didnt even show up in their system. He paid for it in full already. They literally just handed him the game and said ok we cant find it so we will try and figure it out tomorrow. A random guy picking up Walking Dead on Blu recommended them having him sign something that he already picked it up. Their response was "good idea" and they had him sign a piece of paper. WTF? Awful company.

30/60 day price match protection window could be anywhere from $10-$30 back depending on the game & 2X RZ points gets you close to another $5 credit also.

Even if you don't use the $5 pre-order when you p/u the game you will still have met the needed requirements to get the $20. I've misplaced pre-orders before & just bought the game for full price they points came thru w/o a problem. There was only 1 issue maybe 2 yrs a go where I had to call but once they saw the pre-order wasn't cancelled prior to purchase they instant credited the $10 to my RZ account. Also, BB forums reps have confirmed it as well.

Just be patient for the Walsh and Rice codes. It took me 3 days after pickup for my Darksiders Avatar DLC and my code was emailed to me.

Make sure whoever helps you does not return/rebuy the game because you won't qualify for the $20 pre-order promo. Happened to me when I tried to PM the Max Payne 3 coupon the RZ site had shortly after release. I sent an email to whoever was taking care of MP3 issues on the BB forum and they confirmed that was the case.

Yes. The $20 comes in the form of RZ certificate. It will be reflected in your rz page.

BB clowns Amazon. Price protection is the single greatest incentive there is and that doesn't even get into the other areas BB has advantages.

95% of my purchases the past 5 years were bought at the same price amazon has but were also pricematched within the time period (now 60 days) and also gained many, many reward zone certs.

The other 5% were bought at or lower than amazon's price.
