What about the special edition versions are they offering them with the deals like the halo 4 or assassins creed?


No, Halo 4 is only for the regular to get the $25. Same with Assassin's Creed III.

Any idea how long the preorder bonuses will last? I ordered Borderlands 2 through the MS store, but haven't really looked into preordering through Best Buy. I'd be nice if I could use my Borderlands $10 off and roll that into another preorder.

I would love to see Hitman on this list. I am sure that game has a built in base but without some deal it gets pushed to 2013 without a sale for me. Too many good games with $20-30 back to pay $60 outright.

AS IF RE6 is gonna drop to $40 in 60 days. This ain't Raccoon City. Best Buy also has one of the most complicated and user unfriendly pre-order and promotion systems on Earth. Most of which require you to show up in store and deal with idiot customer service. NO THANKS.


This is what happened to me. No joke.

Me: I would like to sign up for the Best Buy Reward Zone Program the Unlocked version for $15 a year with the @Gamer Magazine and Coupons.

Her: Ok I will get you on this register here. (Supervisor stands beside her.)
Can I have your information please?

Me: I give her the info. She gets everything wrong. Not once but twice.

Her: Ok I think I have it now please confirm by pressing accept on the screen.

Me: You spelled everything wrong and thats not even my address. She entered everything wrong and used a different address.

Her Supervisor: What's wrong with you? He has stood here and spelled everything out for you and you still get it wrong! Why?

Her: I partied to hard last night.

Her supervisor: You are 19.

Her. So what? I don't care. (Got a little bit cocky here. Starting playing with her hair and pulled her cell phone out to text.)

Her supervisor: Do you want wrote up on your first week on the job. This gentleman has stood here for a good 10 minutes. Finish the transaction or I am writing you up.

Her: Oh I think the computer stopped working. (She unplugged something. Supervisor looks at her and she plugs it back in.) Oh look it came back on. (She logs out.) She says I can't help you the computer logged me out.

Her supervisor: Log back in. This is your last warning.

Her: Logs back in and finishes the transaction. Forgets to give me my card. (This was the last straw for the supervisor.) He pulls her aside has a little chat with her (she is about to cry) and he hands me the card. (I think she either got warned, wrote up, or fired because after that they put a now hiring sign up.)

AND if you think thats bad becuase I wanted to switch from Digital to an actual Magazine (I like to read the magazines. (Is there a problem with that? Best Buy says YES!) I get my account suspended for 2 months. So I miss out on 2 months of coupons and magazines. I call them they fix my account and extend my subscription 2 months. I asked them if they would honor the coupons since they screwed up and this black woman on the phone told me this.

Woman: Well sir the coupons are expired we cant and we wont honor the coupons because they are expired.

Me: I never got my magazines so how could I use the coupons. Do I at least get anything to compensate for mty lose because I was going to use those coupons to get a few games.

Woman: Well we could load the coupon value on your RZ Card and you go buy the games but you would probably screw us and buy a laptop and get a free console. We cant and we wont do this for you even though we are at fault.

Me: Can I speak to your supervisor I have been on the phone for an hour I have been disconnected, hung up, called a liar and a thief.

Woman: No he left for the day. (I called 5 times in 1 day.)

Me: Is there a manager or something I can talk to? Somebody with more seniority.

Woman: No I'm the oldest one here. (She sounded 30.)

Me: Thats not what I meant. Is there a manager, a supervisor, a senior customer representtive I can speak with.

Woman: I told you no.

Me: Ok, Do you have any magazines I missed out on just so I can read them because I would like to read them.

Woman: No because you'll just go to your local Best Buy and try to get a managers overide.

(Best Buy is 50 miles away.)

Me: Best Buy is 50 miles away. Why would I go there if I cant use the coupons I just want to read the magazine.

Woman: Why would you want to read the magazine when its obvious you cant read anyway because you called wanting use to fix something expired. Its your fault you didnt use them im not sending them out.

Me; Its your companys fault I didnt get my magazines or my coupons. I just want to read the magazines.

Woman: No I dont care im not sending you anything its 5PM I am hanging up and going home. Have a nice day. CLICK!

The next day I call back and tell a man what happened. He said dont worry I'm her manager and I listened to your conversation you had with her and I can assure you she no longer works here.

I guess she forget that all calls are monitored and recorded for quality assurance. Lol. Sory for the long post.

Each retailer gets a certain amount of copies to sell and they have to keep X amount for online sales and Y amount for retail stores -- they can request more copies from the distributor but they have to wait for a confirmation that they'll get more stock in

Another thing is that most websites are designed to cut off sales after they sell an X amount of each item -- its mostly designed to prevent loss from price mistakes or coupon abuse

The BL2 preorder has been going in and out of stock for a few days now so just keep checking the website

COD Black Ops 2 does not have the deal.

Too bad BL2 was OOS, I would have done it. Currently Amazon has only given me a few bucks off since I preordered in 2005.

I did Medal of Honor, Nike+ Kinect, and Dance Central 3. Almost did Fable Journey! SORRY HATERS

It is true, I'm not totally sure where the $30 in coupons will go, perhaps if Fable Journey gets over '70' metacritic, I can buy that. And then hell froze over.

Thank you for that, it was very insightful. I'll keep checking the Microsoft Store's website to see if Borderlands 2 comes back.

I just ordered a ton of games through NewEgg's sale, but Microsoft including the 1600 points cards + 10 bucks seems like a really good deal...especially since all of the games they are giving them with WILL have DLC, like most of the games coming out from this point on.

I love how gaming is dead like a drought through most of the summer and when fall/winter comes around, they release everything right around the same time + you have Black Friday deals, so gamers are really taking a gamble this year pre-ordering anything (that they don't want immediately). Good thing deals like this make it all seem worthwhile...

The only catch for these are no pre-order DLC included with order (aside from Halo 4) unless specifically listed on product page.

Weird, it won't process my order and keeps complaining that there is something wrong with my credit card (MasterCard with that damn secure code thing). Do you have to have enough funds available to place the preorder even though you're not supposed to be charged until the game ships?

There is talk of a temp preauthorization hold or temporary charge...so if you don't have enough funds in there, it's possible.

I would do the live chat/e-mail support option and speak to someone. They are pretty knowledgeable in that regard. You could even call in the order and speak to someone directly which may be a better option.

So if I want to get RE 6 and AC 3, is it best to pre-order RE 6 now and then wait till that comes out and I get my $10 coupon and use that towards pre-ordering AC3 ?

Thats the problem I was having...They say that you could get the code when the game arrives, or up to a number of days after if you order it online. On the off chance that your code doesn't come in time, you wouldn't be able to apply it to AC3 after the fact. It threw me off entirely which made me go for the NewEgg deals that came up recently.

But my example was more for AC3 and Halo 4 which come out days apart from each other....I believe RE6 comes out plenty of time before AC3.

I also noticed that Black Ops 2 had a 1600 points + 10 credit off that is no longer available. They appear to be selling these deals out real fast...hopefully its temporary as Black Ops 2 being sold out isn't a surprise.

am i the only one reading this as you have to wait to get your receipt from your shipment and then send them back your receipt to be verified ala some kinda mail in rebate type offer.

if so then its really not a good deal for anyone wanting to flip

Yes, you'll need the funds to be available. They'll do a temp preauthorization for the full amount which will drop off after a few business days -- once the game ships, they'll process the charge fully

I preordered last Wed and the temp charge was gone when I checked my CC on Monday

damn discover is back to 5% cb instead of 10%

Yea that sucks -- it was part of their back to school bonus cash, but I was hoping it would stay til the end of Sept

Anyone know if we'll be able to use multiple online credits on a single future order? I alrdy preordered BL2 but I'm thinking of also grabbing Sesame St if I can use both $10 credits on a single game. Both BL2 and Sesame St release on the 18th so I wont be able to wait for the BL2 credit to use on Sesame St

I read that as meaning you can't apply it to the same game you got the coupon for and get $10 off, it doesn't say you can't use it towards ANOTHER preorder
