Nope. "Contributors to Pitch In Cards may not use Best Buy Reward Zone certificates or digital coupons to add funds to a Pitch In Card."

Using a RZ Cert on a Pitch-in card is sort of a waste anyhow.
With a RZ cert you don't have to pay tax on the amount used.
Since putting in funds in a pitch-in card is the same as buying a gift card...you wouldn't be paying tax anyway.

Newegg beat BB to the $15 off for XCOM, so I'm keeping my pre-order with them. Still, nice of them to offer it, but they should've announced it earlier.

On the first page it states that you have a 7 days to pick up a pre order, in this case it's borderlands 2. On my receipt it says I have 5 days to pick it up. Release date was 9/18 it says I have until 9/23. Any one know how long you actually have? Thanks in advance.

I wanted to throw this question out there. If I purchase Gamers Unlock Subscription and Borderlands 2, Do I still qualify for the $20 gift cert?

Thank you so much for that response. I just believe I had a chance to get the cert since the game dropped this week and I read somewhere about being able to qualify within 5 days of street date. In that case I will purchase Dishonored and use that $20 Gift Cert towards Fifa 13.

basically, you have to preorder the games you want, and be a unlocked gamers member before the release date of the game to qualify for the $20

Are we allowed to purchase 2 pre-orders on the same receipt?

The reason I ask is because someone mentioned in the Sleeping Dogs thread that the B2G1 free new games in the welcome packet work for $60 titles as long as 1 of the 3 titles are under $40. So I was thinking of pre-ordering NBA 2k13 and Resident Evil 6 together then when I pick it up purchase it along with the Kirby Collection and still qualify for the $20 certificates.

Anyone thinks that would work if the coupon works as mentioned?

Hypothetical question yo.

@Boogie4114
Mmm if NBA and RE6 are released same week right?
It's possible it's just a matter of whether your cashier can treat both pre-orders as an exchange on the same receipt (in order to utilize the coupon) and not a return (screws with youe $20 reward cert)

I haven't pre-ordered multiple items in one pick up so I don't know how they process it.
When I picked up my BL2 pre-order with some flash drives they made me do my pre-order separate for some reason.
So preorders with purchase might not make it eligible.

I just recalled that Enuf mentioned awhile back that you only have to fulfill the pre-order and purchase within the time frame and this worked with NCAA 13 with no problem. With NCAA I pre-ordered in-store but I fulfilled the purchase online with store pick-up and got the $20 with no issues so I think I will do the same except purchase the 3 titles when they come out with Kirby since I will have fulfilled both parts of the promotion.

thanks, i am only interested in the single player portion for this game. i only play a few multiplayer online game for the ps3.

I mainly do single player too, there's so much to do in this year's FIFA that it'll not only teach you how to play the game by bringing you up to speed gradually but then once you become good there's a ton of game modes to choose from.

Let me know how that works out for you.

I recall talking if this bonus is per title or per console but I don't feel like going through a hundred pages to find this.

It's per title right?

If you preorder a game on both 360 and PS3, I believe you only get credit for one of the games.

While FIFA's single player modes is really solid, i think that their online game modes is superior especially head to head. I'm not a big fan of ultimate team. If you are a newbie, you'll be destroyed at first but you'll gradually improve over time.

With that said anyone who plays FIFA feel free to add me on PSN, my id is darrenaw9. Just let me know you're from CAG.

I think they did it to make it easier on themselves. If both games are preordered, they might have a more difficult of a time doing it, but I imagine that you would be okay. If you preordered both on the same receipt, you'd probably have a better shot.

PES:2013 ($10 GC) and XCOM: Enemy Unknown ($15 GC) are getting gift card promos. Check OP for links to promotion.


Hot damn, I was really looking for a promo on XCOM. I was actually getting a little nervous for XCOM since I hadn't seen an ads for the game, but GS has those huge cardboard placeholders advertising it in their stores and now this. Looks like I'm getting all of this season's games from BBY. Good show Best Buy :applause::applause: Hope they can sustain this level of hot deals :hot:

The reason why NCAA 13 worked is cause you basically pre-ordered online not cause of timeframe. If you use the same logic, you would need to do 2 pre-orders online for in-store pickup and not be able to use that welcome coupon of yours since it does not work with online orders.

I never buy 2 $60 games in one day so I'm not sure if that B2G1 coupon will work for you while allowing you the $20 RZ cert for each game. The roadblocks are probably getting them all on the same EXCHANGE receipt and not having the B2G1 Free package discount void your pre-orders due to combining more than one offer at once. Good luck though if you want to try.

Just noticed the X-Com $15 gift card promotion today. I had already decided that I was going to pay $60 and get it on day one anyway, just because I want it so damn bad, so the gift card is great news.

Looks like just X-Com, Fifa, RE 6 Archives, and Dishonored for me. Still, it's a good haul and the $60 in RZ certs plus $15 gift card makes it all even better.

No for NCAA I pre-ordered in-store the Monday before release with $5 down and the online order I placed the day of release which wasn't considered a pre-order anymore but since I fulfilled both parts of the promo ( pre-order before release and purchase within 5 days after release), I got the $20 certificate no problem and once my 1,000 points were pending I used the $5 receipt and exchanged it for a @gamer magazine.
