I'll eventually buy at least half of those games, but I've kind of learned my lesson from this fall and will likely wait on most of them until they're like $20 or less on Black Friday. I will be getting GTA V and South Park right away, though. My two most anticipated games of the year.

I am a bit cautious on South Park because of the bad history of SP-related games, but I can just cancel my preorder if reviews are awful.


Its being made by obsidian

So it might be buggy but it will be a good game, they never dissappoint

Nope, you just get 1 $20 cert per game if you are a Gamer's Unlocked member. If you want two signup a friend or relative and buy with their rewardzone card then you can get 2 certs.

Had to have the cashier rering the purchase as the codes didn't print out. He had to do it as a separate transaction. The biggest issue is my purchase is showing up on my account, but no $20 unlocked points are appearing. They better get this sorted.

I sent a private message through Best Buy Unlocked yesterday morning about my Far Cry 3 pre-order code for the 360 and received a reply this morning. I was impressed by the response time. But of course with my luck the 1st row of 4 letters or numbers only has 3 instead of 4 in the message. So I just sent them a reply.

Relax. The bonus 1000 points always take extra days to show. Wait at least a week, preferably 2 before getting anxious.

ok. i don't want to get anyone else too excited, but i woke up today and my email said i had another $20 rz cert to spend. im like whoa that far cry 3 points posted super quick, but lo and behold... it was for the $35 ac3 i picked up on black friday. now im not complaining about $15 ac3 for black friday, but was curious why this happened and if anyone else got lucky. I did have an ac3 preorder a long time ago just to get the steelcase they were offering, but i never picked it up, maybe this still counted altho weeks later and at sale price. how odd but hopefully others get it too, woot.

also i spent 2 hours playing poker on far cry 3 last night, lol. i think im playing it wrong :)

Does the PM period get extended for the holidays? I assume that since you could potential return the item and rebuy it (because of the extended return policy) that you should not have a problem just PMing it. Reason for asking is Halo 4 is on sale at Target next week and it would be over the 30 day mark. Never did a phone PM (online order) and don't really feel like wasting my time. Thanks for the info.

Sunday Target has it for $39.99. So if you are silver and picked it up on the Thursday or later you should be good to go. I screwed up and picked up Tuesday to be sure I got a lamp and I missed the PM by 1 day.

Fuck, I bought it online and it says 10-6. I am already out of pm/return window. I wish I could just return it and forfeit the points.

Seems FC3 is pulling the same stuff RE6 Anthology did. No posted 1,000 points while all my post Tuesday purchases are popping up. I'm not too worried since I still got the anthology cert in 15 days, but its odd its doing it for a regular release title...anthology was a special edition, so that at least gave some insight of why an issue might have occurred.

The extended policy is in effect till 1/24/13 so ur golden

I'll eventually buy at least half of those games, but I've kind of learned my lesson from this fall and will likely wait on most of them until they're like $20 or less on Black Friday. I will be getting GTA V and South Park right away, though. My two most anticipated games of the year.

I am a bit cautious on South Park because of the bad history of SP-related games, but I can just cancel my preorder if reviews are awful.

If u string the promos back to back along with pm's & then beat them/trade them for $43ish u make out better short/long term.
Ex.
$40(after pm) + $20 credit on the 1st game then trade it back to BB for $43.
Now use the $43 + $20 credit on ur next game rinse/repeat BB pays u to buy/play games all yr long.

Yeah, I'm with you, but I think I'll just wait for the games to drop in price now. It happens so fast, and with my backlog, I don't need to get anything day 1 any more.

That's kinda why I love to get stuff on day 1 with credit + it fuels my silver status. Also, look at the above response on how BB will pay u to buy games from them.

Thanks for the confirmation. Crossing my fingers I can get a rep who can make it quick and painless (looks like some have not been so lucky).

short delays usually are good means they're either avoiding another title or just putting finishing touches vs long delays that could mean major bugs.

I'm never going to get my games through instore pickup anymore. I see my Far Cry 3 transaction on my RZ account and see no sign of Gamer Club Unlocked Victory message. Should I call bestbuy to check up on that?

No, it can take a few days for the bonus points to be added to the transaction after your game has posted to your account. Happened to me with Black Ops. Be patient people.

We guys, I signed up for the Gamers Unlocked program at the midnight launch of Black Ops II. My reward zone account has had a pending "1,189" amount of points for awhile now. When can I actually use them ? Its almost been a month.
