Hmmm. Are you also one of the people that have 2000 bonus points pending instead of just 1000?

How come my account got a 15 dollar certificate that says -750 and now my gears of war pre order has 1000 points but does not say pending. Did I only get $15 for gears or did I get free points for something?

Maybe you returned something and you were in the negative on points? Is that even possible?

Backlog? What backlog?

It looks like you paid less than $79.99 actually for the premium edition unless there is something else i'm missing.

I haven't returned anything to Best buy this year. It's my first time using this pre-order deal and have had GCU for 2 years. They usually give my friend a 20 dollar code in his account.

That is a weird one, without looking @ your RZ account not sure what else it could be. If you check with BB they will prob tell you to wait the 35 days out before any kind of resolution so I think you are stuck in wait and see mode.

Not a GCU member and didn't pre-order, but bought Bioshock Infinite Tuesday and I also see 1000 points pending for me. So any idea what's going on if I do get them hey free money is fine with me.

What? I messaged them early friday morning and was able to get one, would have much preferred a $20 PSN card or 1600 MS point card or something along those lines.

I just messaged them on Sunday. I was definitely happy with 1600 MSP, they said it was so I could get the season pass but doubt ill spend the points on that.

Well, I had my first real issue getting the bonus points since I started doing this fall of '11. My Revengeance pickup never posted at all. I tried doing the automatic missing point thing but it claimed the points were there even tho there was no sign of the transaction (let alone the points). Waited well over a month to call just so they wouldn't give me that "it takes time for them to post" crap. The guy was very nice and he added the points - BUT he claimed that from here on out, you cannot earn any points at all, normal OR bonus points through promotions, if you pay w/ gift cards or RZ certs. I call BS on this, especially since the FAQ in the OP says the exact opposite. But all of this changing they're doing has me wanting to start looking elsewhere for my deals... Almost tempted to cancel my Last of Us preorder which is the last one I have right now.

I am going to think that this is just an uninformed employee. I have 2000 points on judgement. (Idk why just been that way for a while). I paid fully with a gc.

I second that, they are idiots and that is putting it lightly. My bioshock infinite points are pending already and I used $40 in rewardzone points and $4 from the pitch in card on it.

Had to call and talk to a CSR about MGS:R points not posting. She was adding it up and instead of giving me 1000 points ($20) she said 2000 while adding up my points. I didn't really even catch it until after she was done and saying need help with anything else/thank you.

Great way to start off the week I guess :P

I had a weird issue at Best Buy today. Though maybe something changed and you guys can fill me in, but they told me they don't price match Gamestops pricing. Guy who maybe was a manager told the girl who was waiting on me to look up the price on Amazon and fortunately it was the same price so they matched it, but I could have sworn I've price matched Gamestop in the past. Let me know what there policy is if you can so I don't try to do that if that's not the case. Thanks.

They should be able to price match local Gamestop brick and mortar store prices, but they're not obliged to price match Gamestop website prices. It's not one of the online retailers they price match.

It was a preorder bonus, not a pack-in first run bonus.

So yes, it wasn't inside the box.

That's exactly the issue I'm having with Tomb Raider, which I paid with RZ certs. The missing points link tells me the points are there, but the transaction is not listed. I'm waiting out the 35 days and then I'll call.

Well generally the prices on the website are prices in the store. I had BB pm GS about a week ago by showing them the online price on my phone, but the cashier was wary and called the manager and he said yes, GS isn't even in their system as a competitor, but the GS was like less than a mile from the BB.

They should do it if you have a GS locally...makes no sense why they wouldn't

I got charged $5 for the DLC and I took it in and complained to the manager and what she did was she said she price matched it for $5 off.. I told her to make sure not to return it because then I wouldn't receive my 1,000 points, she was pretty clueless what that meant but she said "i'm just doing a pricematch"

When I look at my receipt it says: PRICE MATCH at the top

but underneath it says:
return items bioshock $79.99
sale items bioshock: $74.99
total: -5.38

is this what a price match is supposed to say? I'm afraid of the part where it says "return"

I had to call Customer Service again for the 2/19 Crysis 3 and MGR credits (this is my third call for this). After the first two calls, only 1000 points had posted. I couldn't tell which game the points had come from since these purchases are inexplicably not in my history (just says 1000 point customer satisfaction adjustment). When I called this time, the rep said the points for Crysis 3 had posted, but there was nothing for MGR. She had trouble even finding my MGR purchase... I had to read to her the customer service pin off my receipt. So now I should be getting the other 1000 points.

*sigh* BB preorders used to work nicely.

I bet your 1000 points went to those CAGs that got 2000 points for each game :lol:

In a seriousness though, yeah, I could not understand why this is so hard for their system, it should be no more than a hundred lines of code.

I had the same problem as you, but they did a "price correction". Bit it also states "return items" like yours.

I have still have the 1000 pending for Bioshock, so you should be ok? I hope ?
