Against which store did you PM?


I'm guessing Toys R Us or possibly Kmart.

Did you show them the ad or did the employee just take your word for it?

Officially, they don't. Some stores do it anyways to keep a sale from walking.

^ 10,000 ea catalogue football points I think. I can't remember the description off the top of my head.

I also got the price match on gift card, just brought the TRU ad & my friends at BB did it for me.


edit: Has anyone received their preorder code yet btw?

I had pre-order online and am thinking it won't work for online orders.

May be YMMV. Called my store that did a midnight launch and they said they had none.

was this a pre-order you did online that you got them to match?

or were you just buying in-store.

i have a pre-order, but i don't think they can do anything at pick up, it would have to be through BB online CS i think

I didn't get the pre-order promo for FIFA and now i'm wondering if the girl at CS ran it up wrong. My receipt looks like it is for an exchange. She deducted my $5 pre order off the final value of the item, but no printed code on the receipt. Do I need to call to sort this out?

Well I just crossed 5,000 RZ points so I think I am going to put $20 each towards my final 5 games (maybe $30 if the points from the RZ bonuses clear at the right times) since the consensus seems to be that RZ certs should not interfere with PM the games. Part of me just wants to be safe and get $100 in Amazon Kindle cards but I have not really been shopping there much.

Do you get pre-order bonus in email at bb? This is my first time pre-ordering here so I don't really know :booty:

This is a silly question that I am too lazy to look up. Is it possible to price match a price match?

I price matched Madden 13 when it was $50 at Target. Now I would like to price match the $40 Amazon price.

Turtles all the way down. (At least until you reach $0 or run out of days)

The same thing happened to me with borderlands 2. I called cs and they are looking into it. They said call back in a couple of days see if it's been resolved. I'm more concerned about the $20 gift cert.

For anyone who still hasn't gotten the 1,000 RZ points added to pending for preordering Borderlands, there might be hope it still shows up. Mine just showed up this morning. The transaction for the game had been in pending since last week when I picked it up (for only 4 points though, no idea about that...)

However, just this morning the 1,000 preorder bonus points showed up. I did not contact CS about this issue yet so it appears it showed up on its own. Never had one update this late, especially after the main transaction had already been on there for a week.

My points aswell are also pending. Hopefully they become redeemable by next tuesday. Trying to pick up re6 for cheap and then use the $20 from that on black ops.
