I received the $20 GC/points for Borderlands 2 a few hours ago as well.


Pending or actually available to use? I was hoping to get mine to use for RE6, but figured it was too early.

Hmm, I asked the guy when I preordered Blands 2 and he said yea, you can get the $20 and use it for the other promotions, because I wanted to get RE6, then Halo after, stagger it each month so to speak, then when I picked it up yesterday, the guy said it takes roughly 30 days to register, which bothered me since RE6 comes out in 3 weeks. =/ Perhaps I can just use the $40 on Halo now.

I think if you pre-order online, then the pending period actually starts with the date of pre-order (although obviously it won't come through before the purchase is completed by picking up in store or shipping). I remember I pre-ordered NCAA 13 almost a month before release, and I got my cert exactly 30 days after I pre-ordered, 2 days after I picked the game up.

Not one problem today. I gave her the sku for the DLC and it printed on my receipt. Interesting thing was the DLC rang up as $5 but packaged out when it totaled. You may be able to use that sku to buy the DLC without a pre-order. They also have one of those sweet posters so I was happy.


Where can I find the SKU for the DLC. I'm picking up my 360 copy tomorrow and I'd prefer to have the code on my receipt vs taking the chance of getting an email at a later date. I read back 10 pages and only saw mention of PS3 and PC.

I am not sure what the heck happened to my post with the link. Why would a mod delete a link to the BBY forum?

Anyway the skus are

You can go to the BBY forum and look for the Borderlands 2 thread about pre-order codes.

Nope. I think since they have expiration dates.

Ok, quick question. I picked up my order today and everything seemed fine. Got my DLC code printed on my receipt and everything. The only thing is, I forgot to give my Reward Zone info for this transaction. I gave it when I made the preorder, but not when I picked it up. Do I have to shoot customer service an email or should I be ok?

Does it have your reward zone info on your pickup receipt?

You can add the purchase manually to your RWZ account via report missing purchases. You just need the customer pin number from your pick up receipt. I had to add it that way in the past and got my cert.

So I went to check and see if my borderlands 2 purchase went up on the reward zone website, and all of my purchases that I have made on that account have been taken off. Anyone else have something weird like that happen to them?

Well, my situation is half-solved--I had a good, long talk with a RZ rep on the phone about how I should get the $20 in RZ points because I "preordered" the :ps3: version of BL2 even though the preorder ticket was messed up with the UPCs. He tried to say that because I paid for the preorder deposit with a gift card, I wasn't eligible for bonus point promotions (WTF?), but eventually he relented to my reasoning and gave me 1000 points directly, which are now sitting in my account for dispersal when I choose. :D

Now I have to just wait 48 hours to not get a preorder DLC code emailed to me so I can call the regular BBY helpline to get a :ps3: code.

I already used it to pre-order Dishonored.

This reminds me of a question I've meant to ask for some time: Is there any reason to not use RZ certificates when preordering any of the titles for this promotion? In particular, I thought it would make PMing easier in the future if you didn't use any since they lowered the cost of the item, not the total (like GCs).

For example, wouldn't it be difficult to PM a $39.99 sale price for Borderlands 2 at BBY if you used $20 in RZ certificates when you initially bought it, since technically you already paid $39.99 for the game?

I've got ~$40 in RZ certificates that I've held off on using on things I expect/hope to drop in price in the future in the event that PMing would be too difficult, but if I'm free to use them, I'd like to know. Thanks in advance. :)

EDIT: *sigh* I just checked my email and apparently the BBY employee yesterday processed my "preorder" correctly, since I received a preorder code for the PC version. :bomb: I guess I have to visit the BBY forums now or try calling again.

Only silver members can bank points indefinitely. Otherwise you can pick what value of cert you want to issue automatically with $20 being the highest.

Well I think I've decided that I want to pick up Borderlands 2 now that all of the glowing reviews are out (was initially afraid that it would be "more of the same"), but the cheapass in me is full of regret since the $20 certificate is essentially dead. What do you think the chances are that I could get one anyway by calling the Reward Zone number?

The only reasons I think this could work is: I'm a silver member; I'm GCU; when you look up Borderlands 2 on bestbuy.com it still says "$20 reward zone certificate, find out how".

Maybe if I buy it and then call and play dumb saying "When will I get my reward zone certificate? I bought it before the 25 and am GCU". I could feign confusion because I'm pretty sure it used to be that if you preordered or picked up in the first week, these types of deals would work... Wouldnt be one of my prouder moments, but I'm considering it.

I'm not gonna play moral police but if you had any interest at all in BL2, why didn't you preorder it and then cancel later if the reviews were bad? Also I don't know what reviews you've read, but BL2 is most definitely more of the same in the best way possible. They've streamlined some stuff and the characters are different (except for turret bro), but it's the same beautiful game as Borderlands 1.

FYI, BBY had a phone freedom promotion that gives you $50 GC, I have used it 2 months ago don't know if it's still there.
