Anyone else get a ready for pickup email for Dead Island. I got 3 emails. 2 notifying me of release date change and another one to come pick it up.

I just preordered yesterday for shipping. I got the release date change email an hour or so ago followed by an email saying my item is backordered and should arrive between April 11-22.

I checked online and now Dead Island is not available for shipping.

Is that official or is that just what BB is telling you? Because every other retailer still has 4/23.

Even BBY website still says 4-23, but this is an email like all the other ready for pick up emails I've ever gotten. Maybe they got it in today and they're not street dated? Although 3 weeks sounds like a long time to have a product in stores.

I did the same, and I got the same emails today. Is it maybe the steelbook add that's ready for pick-up? Mine was "shipping only," but maybe that's a mistake, too.

I never got my MGRising RZ points. I think she messed it up when she was scanning the preorder receipt. Is there a number/email address that people have had success with?

Anyone try to pick up their Dead Island Riptide yet? May stop by after work and try. Considering calling first to make sure it's ready as I don't want to make that drive if I don't have to.

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


Agreed and there's 3 Gamestops within 2 miles of the Best Buy I was at so I was really surprised when they said this. I show them prices on my phone all the time and they've never questioned price matching Toys R Us, Kmart, or Target before.

FYI, someone made a mistake somewhere in the system w/ Dead Island Riptide. My store doesn't have a copy waiting for me and aren't scheduled to get any in until right before the 23rd. As suspected.

Help?

Bought BBY MGR 2-21 at $50 (PM retail Frys price) at time of Purchase.
I am GU and Silver also.

NewEgg has MGR for $40 currently. Can I still do another PM in effect making my cost $20?

Am hearing some are successful. My store are Nazis and liars so I'd like to make sure the old policy favors me (and if it's stated in black and white somewhere official).

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 ?


They probably took off $5 from the purchase for the random $5 dlc charge, and did that for their benefit otherwise their register would be off by $5

Hmmmm anything bought before a certain date should be under the old policy. Make sure to stress this, it was bought during the OLD policy period.
Printout the policy change page that says that if you can find it. But people are unpredictable and you might get a evil manager.

I had over 2,600 points pending with BioShock Infinite and it somehow dropped to 569 points. It is still showing my BioShock transaction as pending, but the points are gone!



If I don't get my points because my @Gamer Unlock Subscription ended two days after BioShock's release I will be pissed!




Check your reward Cert's... probably set to cash out at 1000 or so. You should have them.

I just got off the phone with bb getting a pm for this. If you bought it in store you will probably only get $10 back but it does apply to the old policy so you can pm. I purchased online and did a pm after the fact for the frys price then did a pm again and got 30 back total. They never check for previous pm's online (prob on another screen) but with a rep in stop the first price they look at is the $50.

..... I am going to miss this when it is gone.

FYI, for those that get price match or price correction as a workaround...as far as I guess it's ok.

I put all my bby purchases on credit card. So if it was indeed a game return and rebuy fix My credit card statement would show these quick transactions. Has not happened the 3 times they Fuck my orders.

(I am done with bby preorders 4-19, it's not worth the aggravation)

You could PM multiple times. I've done it.

This thread reminded me I need to PM MGR with NewEgg tonight.

Anyone have any luck PMing Newegg's $49.99 price on God of War: Ascension? I've struck out twice (and rightfully so) because the purchase took place after the March 3rd policy change so now BBY won't PM a competitor's price.

Might have to wait for the price to drop at Best Buy, per the new policy that's in place. :cry:

Just got done with the demo for Injustice. I kind of want to buy it now.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Weren't they not allowed to price match newegg before the change to the new policy, so you should not be able to price match MGR, unless there is a magical newegg store local to you.

I never said all CAGS, and why did you edit out all the "details" in your previous post? All I'm saying is that I think its a douche move to keep calling CS hoping to get a uninformed rep who will do a PM that's not in their policy anymore. Don't see why my posts got deleted but whatever, I forgot this place can be SD jr. sometimes.

I don't think this will play into factor. They just look up whom they can price match currently in their system. (Also they have always had the option for 'Other Online Competitor')

So I was wondering why my Bioshock purchase hasn't posted on the rewards site yet since everything has been running smooth for me lately. I purchased off the website and had it shipped to me. I checked my BB account this morning and the order still says In Process on bests buys website and not order complete like it should once it ships, even though I got the game already. Has this ever happened to anyone?

My order is "still in process" but the points from the purchase and the 1000 points extra were pending a day or two after it arrived.
