After I pm with Fry's on RE6, can I still use random reward points certificates? Really wanted the game on the pc, but it seems like the release date for pc version got pushed back to November?

I take it both of you have Fry's in your areas?

What is considered a local retail competitor?
A local retail competitor for retail store purchases is a retail store authorized by a vendor to sell a new, factory-sealed product with a warranty and is located in the same market area (within a 25 mile radius) of your local Best Buy store. A local retail competitor for BestBuy.com purchases is a retail store authorized by a vendor to sell a new, factory-sealed product with a warranty and is located in the same market area (within a 25 mile radius) as either the billing address or the shipping address on record for the purchase.

...but this really depends on the manager of your Best Buy I think.

Just got back from BBY PM'ing Anthology from Fry's ad. Had a bit of a wait and the general manager of the store ended up helping me. Didn't have a second thought doing the PM and really didn't care about the phone pic of the ad I showed her and just took me word. Got back $16.05 in cash making my total purchase for the Anthology about $35ish of my own money after PM, preorder deposit, $5 RZ cert, and $35.70 GC.

Now all I have to do is beat RE6 and get at least $35 for it and I come out even with 1-5 free to boot!


Besides getting the game 50% off or free, I think I came out pretty darn good overall on RE6 Anthology today :D

I couldn't get the Frys PM. Nearest location is 4 hours away (ATL). Though after watching a free play, this game looks crappy. I don't think I plan to keep it.

Got RE6 for $45 + tax after Fry's PM and $5 RZ cert. Got NBA2K13 for $55 + tax with a $5 RZ Cert. Kind hoping I can get Borderlands 2 and NBA2K13 PM's down to at least $50 before my $5 RZ Certs on them. No DLC though, so I'll be waiting for that too.

How do I know if I'm getting the reward cert?

I preordered and I got the email with the message:
"If you entered your Reward Zone ID during checkout, points will be awarded to your account for eligible purchases approximately 30 days after fulfillment. Please allow 6-8 weeks to receive your reward certificates."

But I don't remember if I entered my RZ ID during checkout, and there's nothing on the receipt that says it's linked to my RZ account.

if you don't think you are getting the points you can always report the missing points on the rz page.

My receipt when I picked up my RE6 (successfully PMd too and fully paid using GCs) states that it's an "Exchange". Is that... normal? I asked the cashier and I was told that it's always like that for pre-order pick ups.

It was actually my first time pre-ordering at BB, and I'm just hoping I'll receive the RZ cert in 30 days time.

Yes, it's normal. You'll see the points pending within a week or so.

The OP really needs to be updated to explain what the receipt looks like, so it cuts down on the same question being asked 5 times a page...

Fry has it for 74.99 so you can try PM with that, but most stores don't price match online ads.

I did same as you beat RE6 trade in for 42, $20 gc, and maybe 15 price match fry so you paid less than retail just for RE6 getting all 6 games.

Got preorder email and order shipped email hour ago. How long does standard shipping usually take. Hoping by Saturday.


I'm wondering how the long shipping takes too. Ordered NBA 2k13, would have preferred to pick up but that wasn't in the cards.

So I know it does not mean anything other than internet rage but the user score for RE6 on 360 is 0.6 and on the ps3 is 0.4 on Metacritic. That may be the lower than the Mass Effect rage.

Internet Trolls are raging, I am LOVING RE6, much more then 5. Also you can unlock Alternate custome via Residentevil.net (Similar to COD Elite) the Leon Pirate costume is too damn awesome.

So I just had to post since this reminded me,and no racism meant, but LOL!!

When I was at CS tonight PM'ing RE6, some 17ish yr old black kid was at the store pickup for at least a good 30 mins, if not more (was still there after I even left) complaining about his All Star DLC not being there...

No employee seemed to know what to do and I just wanted to laugh in his face, and then it hit me...we CAGs are the few who know. So then I just let out a silent laugh to myself and went on about my pleasant evening.

Good day gaming wise. Picked up Re6, God of War Saga, and Lego Batman 2 for $107. With a game that has a complete story mode of 20+ hours, 5 GOW games, an open world lego game, and a 1 month voucher of ps+ I think Im covered with gaming until Black Ops 2 comes out. Speaking of black ops, I remebered that I forgot to preorder the HE while I was picking up these games.#-o Hopefully by the next time I go to BB they arent sold out.

Well...I had an interesting day at Best Buy today...

I called the store yesterday to put ME3 CE for PS3 and Lollipop Chainsaw on hold for me. I go there today to get those two games and RE6....This is where the problem starts. I pre-ordered the game like 6-7 months ago.

They see that I have it pre-ordered, but they cannot access the transaction, it's like in limbo. They say they can just give me $5 on a gift card and then buy the game, but I explain that that isn't the issue. The issue is that I would lose out on the $20 due to not having a pre-order anymore. The BIGGER issue is that on the same transaction I have Dishonored, Halo 4, and AC3 pre-ordered. That means all 3 of those games are in limbo too...

They agree that this is a problem, but they have no idea what to do. There is no way for them to get the transaction to actual come into the POS system so they can do an exchange. At this point it's been almost an hour of me being in the store when I should have only been there 5-10 minutes.

The woman apologized, and I don't blame any employee for this situation at all, but I blame the BB internal system. She said that to get me out of the store so I don't need to wait around any longer, she will just sell me the game as is, cancel the pre-order, give me $5 off, and will be in contact with me to ensure I get my $20.

While I do believe her, I have a feeling this is just the start of the issues with this order. Thanks to having to go back next Tuesday for Dishonored, 3 weeks later for AC3, and the week after that for Halo 4.

When I got home I called the RZ CS department and told them the situation. I tell the woman everyone was very nice and did their best to help, but the situation itself is unacceptable and I am really annoyed that I may have to deal with this situation another THREE times in the span of a month.

She apologized and agrees my situation is unacceptable and shouldn't have to be this complex and gives $15 as an apology, which is more than fair. I also ask her to note my account, because I am worried that if I call them in 30-40 days and say "yes...you owe me $80 for 4 pre-order credits I never got..." they will just laugh at me and tell me to piss off.

None of the employees at Best Buy had ever seen anything like this...YAY ME!

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Best Buy's systems are absolutely horrendous. They screwed up a transaction once because they put in the $10 credit I got for using in-store pickup in before they put in a $20 RZ. Once they did they couldn't actually use the reward zone certificate. Seriously.

Did anyone receive their code yet from pre-ordering RE6? I pre-ordered it this past Saturday, picked up the game at 10am and havent received it yet.

As for NBA 2K13, it was shipped out to me since in store pickup was unavailable. It was shipped out yesterday and scheduled delivery date is next Monday. Dont mind the wait though as an updated roster update should be released by the time I get the game.
