Sorry if this is a dumb question. Is it spend $50 before tax? I wanted to get Lego Batman 2, but it is $49.99.

Deal doesn't really work that well if you're pre-ordering NCAA and Madden with gift cards since you can't use them online for pre-orders.

Don't know what your talking about, but preordering with gift cards and reward certs has always worked for me. I do it weekend before release and pay in full.

I had thought for some reason that you couldn't use GC credit for pre-orders, seems not to be the case though as it's working for me now. Will just have to cancel the pre-order I already had for NCAA 13

I just didn't buy it because I already have it. The spiderman 3 blu-ray was bundled with ps3 consoles so I bought it for like $2 or something back in 2007 or 2008. Gamestop had buy 2 get 4 free on movies and I found a bunch of blu-rays.

I haven't watched Spiderman 3 since I saw it in the theater. I didn't like it very much but it's worth a buy if you are going to use the $10 movie cash for sure.

Oh wow, I didn't know the Spiderman movies had movie cash to see Amazing Spiderman. Thanks for the info!

Would using BB credit be valid for the promotion?

Tempted to do in store pick up for ass creed and ghost recon to get the $10 credit. Then return the unopened copy with my old receipt. Would this be frowned upon?

I personally do not see the harm if you are still within the return window. I think people talk about doing that sort of thing a lot on here. You are still spending $60 out of pocket and not double dipping on two different deals since GR:FS did not have a release day promo.

Does anyone know how store pick up works?

Can I make an order now and go pick it up in couple of hours when BB opens? I was just gonna walk in today to make a purchase but I want to take advantage.

Yeah you just order online with store pickup. You will get an email telling you to wait for a 2nd email saying the items are ready. Then you go to CS (Store Pickup) with a printout of the 2nd email and they seem to press buttons for like 5 minutes and then give you the items. Easy.

After you make the order, you receive an email that says when your order is ready for in-store pickup. You are supposed to bring:

  • Your state-issued photo ID
  • The credit card used for the purchase
  • The order number - or a copy of the e-mail they send you
I just placed an in-store pick up order this morning so all this info is coming from the email they sent me.

For those wondering, in my experience with in store pickup it usually is fairly quick between when you place the order and get the final email saying its ready to pickup. Usually a couple of hours at most.

If you place an order before they open, usually its ready right after they open.

In store pickup is pretty easy and awesome to use. Really great for pre-orders, I like the fact that I can pay for the whole game online and not have to deal with paying on release day. Speeds it up a bit plus I can "make" the purchase when I have the extra funds available.

rcerboss bet his CAG card and lost, and now wont leave.

I was already planning on doing it, but count me in for both NCAA and Madden. Can't beat getting $60 in Best Buy cash for free.


That along with the possibility of PMing those two games isn't a bad at all.

You have to spend $50, so buying something for $60 and using a $25 gift card would not work. Sucks because I have $40 in RZ coupons that I will have to wait until this promo is over before I can use them.

Aw, seriously? The one thing I wouldn't want to do in the near future is pay in anything other than gift cards for my BBY purchases...:cry:

I'm not sure that he's right.

If you spend RZ cert, it reduces the price. If you use a GC, it's just a form of payment.

I think it should work if you use a GC.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

It's been so long since I've used a gift card that I don't remember how it appears on your receipt. In that case a gift card should work, just not a RZ cert. Good for WV, but still sucks for me.

OK, cool, thanks for clarifying. I just need to plan on using a $5 RZ cert. on Darksiders II if it gets added to the $20 promo and I should be good to go.

It won't work, cause you can't buy it online and do in-store pickup with it.


It won't work, the $20 Max Payne RZ coupon offer is in-store only. This offer requires you to place your order online paid in full and pick-up in store.


The promotion is from June 17 through August 31. You got the 9/30 date mixed up on when the $10 code expires if you pick-up your order in August. The $10 code only last one month and it depends on when you pick-up your order. As I said before if your purchase can not be physically pick-up before August 31 don't pre-order thinking you will get your $10 code. The only two titles this promo will go great with is NCAA and NFL 13.


I didn't get anything mixed up...my order on Madden will be fulfilled by the end of August(paid for and picked up). So now I get a 10 dollar code after picking up Madden on release day. I immediately then use it toward a pre order of Assassin's Creed 3 online, paying in full for it and the coupon now has been used in September before it expires. The game however, comes out after September- so my question was...does the coupon I've already earned from picking up Madden in August, used in September before the expiration date, apply to a game that comes out and will be picked up in October?
