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?


Use the "Report missing points" option on myrewardzone.com to add the order to you RZ account.

Well I pre ordered the game and the mag rang up for free without an override. For those who havent seen it up close here are some things Ive noticed about this mag

.the days that the coupons are valid through the day they expire are differint for some of the coupons. For ex: the mw3 and black ops ones are from 9/30/12 - 11/10/12 but the mw2 one is from 11/11/12 - 1/5/13 ... Wtf ?
.in the history of cod section of the mag they mention every cod except world at war (bad job editors ... Really bad)
.while this is a silly one the coupons dont have the easy tear thing around them so you have to cut them out carefully like its pre school all over again lol

since the mw2 coupon runs through black Friday I hope it goes on sale on bf for 9.99 so we can get it for free !!!!!! oh and im gonna cancel the preorder within the next day or two lol

Just did this at a local Best Buy with no issues. It sucks that because hourly employees don't know of it, they shoot you down without even trying.

PS> I have no intention of buying Black Ops II

I wanna' share a story with you guys regarding this whole cancellation of pre-order(s) business at BB.

Last week when I went to pick-up my pre-ordered copy of RE 6, and noticed that I could get the LE strategy guide for it at 25% off (when purchased on the same receipt), I told the cust. service rep at the pick-up desk that I wanted the guide as well. They got me the guide all right, but I guess the rep figured the easiest way to package the guide along with the game (so as to get me that 25% discount on the guide), would be to CANCEL my pre-order of the game (returning the $5 to my BBRZ Master Card), and then ring up both the game and the guide as if I was purchasing those items just then. I didn't catch the rep doing this at the time, but I realized what she had done when I got home and took a good look at the receipt.

So you all can guess what happened to the $20 worth of bonus RZ points (1,000 points) that I was supposed to get for pre-ordering RE 6, right? They were nowhere to be seen when I went to check my RZ account online, and it was all because the rep had cancelled my pre-order so I could purchase the game & LE guide together to take advantage of the 25% discount on the guide! Well, being a Premiere Silver member, I called RZ and explained the situation. The rep I spoke to was very courteous and apologized for the inconvenience (even though he obviously wasn't responsible for it). Not only did he award me the 1,000 bonus points for the pre-order of RE 6, but also an additional 250 ($5 worth) points for the trouble! That was indeed very cool of him to do so, and I was able to get the matter resolved.

So what's the moral of the story? Well, for those of you LIKE ME, who are planning on cancelling your existing pre-order of BlOps II, so you can RE-pre-order it and get the exclusive COD-themed @Gamer mag for free, JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE GETTING YOUR $20 WORTH OF RZ BONUS POINTS WHEN YOU PICK-UP THE ACTUAL GAME COME NOVEMBER! I know this isn't quite the same situation as what happened with my RE 6 purchase (because in this case you're still pre-ordering BlOPs II), but it's always good to monitor your RZ account and ensure that you're getting the bonuses you're supposed to.

What's stopping people who already have a preorder from just preordering a new copy and then canceling it? Is there a 1-preorder-per-person policy or something?

Wow, thank you people of CAG, this is perfect timing. I was just thinking of canceling my Gamestop pre-order (whose fourth wave just came out, you got a double-sided poster, a prestige token, the standard pre-order Nuketown map, the double XP first weekend, and a sweepstakes entry or an avatar item & another sweepstakes entry or a playercard theme) in favour of the $20 GC & Nuketown map. So now that I also get a $10 mag (with a $15 coupon for a year of Xbox Live), this is a no-brainer.
I mean, Gamestop tried (the stuff is more or less worth the $5 deposit) but it just doesn't even cut it close to competing with $20 towards a future purchase & the Nuketown map (still wish they offered those dog tags..).

Thank god I renewed my @Gamer so I could get the $20 credit with Dishonored (which is awesome, by the way).

I'm sure Best Buy planned this all along and was just waiting for the last Gamestop pre-order bonus to drop to appeal to the people who were disappointed (like myself).

Question, I haven't canceled a pre-order since ACIII like 2 months ago, and I got cash. You're saying that they only give you credit back now?

Also, fyi, all those sweepstakes are ones where no purchase is necessary to enter. Read the fine print, there should theoretically be other ways to enter.

I can confirm that unless you're REALLY lucky and they don't care/look the other way or are working with an incompetent employee, they will not give you the CoD issue with renewal. I had 2 separate chances to nab the CoD mag instead of the October edition (which I kept forgetting to take home from the store but ended up getting in the mail a week after GCU renewal), and I let it slip through my fingers. So this is good news.

I wanted to say something funny that happened while I was getting the mag they were supposed to give me in store (I left it behind in the store 2 separate times when they were supposed to give it to me) after I renewed after my membership expired in late Sep., along with Dishonored yesterday, but I realized it may give an increase to shoplifting...

This is a bit off topic but if I'm missing this month;s @Gamer would they give me one in store? I know I've missed Game Informer issues before and just asked for one at my local Game Stop and they gave it to me after checking to see if I was a member.

It's early enough in the month that they might tell you to wait a little longer for it to ship, but otherwise they'll probably do the same thing, check if you're a member, and give you a mag in-store. Just try to make sure they see it's not a regular practice. If they do turn you away, try again in a week or so, I'd say trying in the middle of the month as opposed to the end looks less suspicious and in a case like this, they kinda have to take you at your word/trustability.

BB forum mods already stated that they will do a daily sweep of all GCU preorder cancellations that had a separate purchase to properly credit everybody eligible. You just needed to be patient or asked CAG. So you inadvertently stole another $25 RZ cert. Congrats.

I got the COD issue earlier today, and I have to say if you're a fan of Black Ops 2 you'll probably find the magazine worthwhile. Lots of developer interviews and info about the game.

There's also a "recap" about every major console COD in the past and some interviews with some of the game's voice actors.

Strangely though, it doesn't even mention Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified coming out for Vita this fall. There's no reference to it at all in the magazine, it seems. Looks like Sony & Activision really want this game to bomb...

No, I disagree! You said they were doing a "DAILY SWEEP," right? Well, I picked up my copy of RE 6 and purchased the LE guide along with it on Oct. 3rd (1 day after the release date). Again, the in-store clerk actually CANCELLED my pre-order, and rang up the game and the LE guide as an ordinary purchase but packaged them together, so that I can get the 25% discount on the guide. And that's why I never did get the pre-order bonus for this game (as my pre-order was cancelled), until I called the Premiere Silver RZ cust. service # on the 8th (SEVERAL DAYS after the purchase) and explained the whole situation to them. Even before the 8th, I could see that all of the other purchase points relating to that transaction were already posted to my RZ account... all EXCEPT the 1,000 bonus pre-order points that is.

And this certainly was NOT the case when I pre-ordered and picked up Borderlands 2 or Madden NFL 13 (my 1,000 bonus points for pre-ordering each of those games showed up alongside the other purchase points that I received for those game purchases).

Today's the 10th BTW, and BB RZ certainly haven't awarded me any additonal points in regards to the RE 6 transaction. Frankly, I don't know why BB forum mods would even say that they would AUTOMATICALLY award the $20 worth pre-order bonus to those who cancelled their pre-order, and then make a future purchase AFTER the release date. After all, that was never the deal!

Now if you fall into a situation as I did with my RE 6 purchase, where the pre-order was cancelled without my knowledge by the store clerk, then you should be able to call RZ to resolve that matter. But when they say they're doing it AUTOMATICALLY via a "daily sweep," that's a bunch of garbage! Don't even fall for that... keep a close eye on your RZ account and make sure you are getting all that you're supposed to!

I went in today and got this deal...thanks OP! I did have to specifically tell the cashier how to do it though...when I asked him about the deal he just snarkily replied "Well I haven't heard about that." and that since I was GCU "Your issue should be in the mail; I just got mine last week." He rang it up, it worked...didn't say a word to me. What a doucher.
