Forgive my ignorance but if you do a pre-order at Best Buy and do not pick up the game, does your $5 pre-order fee get refunded on your credit card? Or, is it like GameStop and you now have a $5 credit? Sorry, I've never done a pre-order at Best Buy. And, yes, I know about the $20 credit thing. I am just too cheap to make an initial payout of $60 for a game. LOL.


They will refund your $5 back to whatever method of payment you used.

I think you need to go back in with your receipt to get it though.

Edit- looking at the back of the preorder card for dishonored, it says deposit receipt may be refunded at the customer service desk.

Yeah, you have to actively go back and ask for a pre-order/cancel I think. And if you got a pre-order bonus I don't know if they necessarily have to refund without the item, though I don't think I've heard anyone ever have a problem with it.

Might pre-order just to get the PS+ coupon in the mag. Though I would happily send $1 paypal to any CAG with the coupon who is not planning on using it and wouldn't mind mailing it to me.

If for some strange reason your BBY still has joust Xbox live cards (my local store had some until last month). They are 49.99 instead of 59.99. Plus you get a Joist game DL code also.

I got a few of these when they had the $20 off text a while ago.

It's a long shot. Hopefully someone can get the SKU as I'm at work right now.

So the magazine is $10..but a preorder is $5. Even if you don't get the $5 back that makes no sense but not that surprising.

Anyway I planned on pre-ordering for the $20 credit anyways and wanted that PSN+ coupon so it is a pretty good deal

I went to BB this morning to pick up Dishonored and brought my COD preorder receipt to inquire about the magazine. The gaming rep (the one who still works there) said he had no idea about this magazine and knows they do not have any. Said all they have is the current one with Assassin's Creed on the cover. Said to come back in a week or so to see if they have it.


Thank you, I think I'l wait a week or so for this news to filter down to the stores.

Weird. I just got back from my BB and they had a huge stack of them just sitting in the gaming section. Rang up for free with my pre-order no prob.

I'm not seeing black ops 2 as part of the $20 promo anymore. They may have removed the $20 in place of this mag. If so, that sucks.

You're right! In that case, screw the extra magazine, I'd rather have $20. I might ask about it next time I'm there anyway but I doubt they'll give me one.

Not this again. It is and always has been apart of the $20 promo.

In-store orders only. Meh. Seems like whenever someone posts about the missing RZ points for this promo, it's because they ordered in-store and not online for pickup.

I just don't know. All I want out of the coupons is the $15 off PS+.

But it no longer shows up under that promo.

If you go through myrz.com it still shows up but if you look up the game the promo is not listed and if you go to the promo from bestbuy.com it does not. Could be that myrz just hasn't been updated yet.

You will only see it be part of the promo on the RZ gamer club page. It's not open to the public, only RZGC.

Go to myrz.com and log in then go to gamers club page. You can verify it there.

The MODS on the BBY forums already addressed this issue and it IS still offered, just only on the GC page.

I was told it had something to do with the devs.

That's good then as I plan on putting my pre-order down today. I saw 2 different lists when logging into myrz at different times. One showed blops2 on the very bottom, the other didn't have it at all. Currently, with the game in my cart, there is no mention of the $20 under the list of offers.

Thanks! Weird that these two pages look the same otherwise but one has BLOPS2 and the other doesn't but the thread you posted directly references these pages so i ugess that was settled a while ago.

It's a move to promote the @Gamer and inevitably GCU paid memberships.

But this edition is not included in the GCU membership - that's why this is so weird. Kind of odd to run a promo saying "if you joined our club you still wouldn't get this magazine" lol.

Yeah but it's a still a coupon packet that all preordering customers are entitled to. If I got that mag and flipped through the coupons, it would definitely pique my interest in GCU and get me to start asking the gaming rep some questions about the program.

Any savvy employee would use this as a perfect opportunity to segue into the $20 RZ promo offer which would essentially pay off your membership and $5 deposit for free (cash flow arguments aside).

Let me add on to that what if I already got a pre order in for the care package I guess I'm just SOL huh? Should have just added to all existing pre orders as well


I'm in the same boat. FYI, care packages are sold out so don't cancel it if you really want it.

I mentioned this offer to two gaming reps today and they didn't know anything about it. Hell, they still had the September mags out and the October and Black Ops II mags were still bound in the back. I showed them the Twitter page, but they wanted to confirm with a manager. Manger said they don't honor Twitter. It has to be on BB.com or something official. They wouldn't even ring it up to see if it packaged out. I told them I'd be back later in the week when they figure it out.

Funny since the twitter account is verified. Not surprised most employees know nothing about this deal though.

Wow that's brutal. My best buy was clueless about this offer too but they just rang it up to see if it would work and it did

Just got back from Best Buy and it worked for me. Manager didn't know about the promotion but he did ring it up and the magazine went through as free with the preorder. I only really got this for the PSN Plus so if anyone is interested in the Xbox Live Coupon, let me know.

What if I pre-ordered the Hardened Edition Online, didn't use a reward zone account when I made the order. Last week I bought Gamers Unlock for my RZ account. Is there anyway I can apply the purchase towards my RZ or do I have to wait until after launch?
