Maybe I'm in the wrong here but didn't they state in the new PM policy that they would only PM their own sale price if you bought it within 15 days? TR is way over that 15 day limit.

For Premier Silver members, that doesn't go into effect until sometime in the middle of this month, and even then, I think purchases made before still qualify for the 60-day PM window (albeit only BBY PMs allowed).

As long as he shows that he's Premier Silver and that he's still within the 60-day window, he shouldn't have any trouble.

I'd make a ruckus if you do get any trouble, though. :lol:

That's only relevant if you haven't already bought TR since BBY will no longer PM other retailers post-purchase, Silver or not.

completely wrong. pm policy doesn't go into effect until April 19th for Silver members.

No he is right. The cut off for being able to PM other retailers post purchase was march 2nd, Tomb Raider was released March 5th.

I just put in 2 separate preorders for both injustice and dead island for shipping from the website, but they decided to cancel injustice on me for apparently no reason according to the lady on the phone. Now I have to wait 5 days for someone higher up to contact me about it and 3-5 days for my points to be refunded. I really hate dealing with best buy these days.

i ran into a similar issue a while back, you better call them after the 5 days period, if they do not contact you, because they will never contact you on their own.

As I posted in the Amazon Tomb Raider thread a bit ago:

If you preordered using their website before their new price-match policy went into effect in March, yes. In my case, the order showed up as being placed on February 16th, and since I was covered by the previous price match policy, and it was within 60 days, I was able to have them adjust my price to Amazon's $75.99.


So, *if* you preordered using the website for either in-store pickup or shipping prior to 3/2, it should still show up in your purchase history as being purchased on the date you originally preordered. As long as that's still within the 60 day window, you should still be able to price match. Worked for me!

So much misinformation about the PM policies... Anyways I was able to PM Kmart's price on TR. I'm pretty good with a manager at my store and she was fine w/ it since they completely botched my original pickup of the game.

If you do try to PM, don't demand them to PM competitors. It's solely a YMMV thing. $50 BBY price is the safest bet for Premier Silver members.

the link and what Jimmie said is silent as to post purchase price match to competitors though. Its unclear.

I guess if that is all we had to go off of then I would say we can't do it.

No, that date ONLY effects NON-SILVER members. SILVER members only become affected on April 19th.

"Is the post purchase price match initially extended for Reward Zone Premier Silver customers?
Yes. Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 60 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or before April 18, 2013. Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 15 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or after April 19, 2013."

However, in the case of Tomb Raider, several cag's (including myself) price matched Amazon back when it went on sale for 1 day, YMMV on a successful PM but if you pre-ordered the game before March 2nd you shouldn't have too much trouble.

Edited by DemonsMaster, 07 April 2013 - 11:01 PM.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Just dropping in to say that I was able to PM Tomb Raider with Kmart ad ($44.99). I just had to point out I am a silver member and they said yeah you are good until the 18th of this month for the PM. They verified the price on their computer and did a price over ride thereafter. No problems. BTW, Amazon also has TR for $45.99 in case anyone has to pick and choose.

No. From that link lower on the page:

Yes. Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 60 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or before April 18, 2013.

The ability to price match OTHER RETAILERS POST PURCHASE ended March 3rd. You can only PM other retailers at the time of purchase, unless you luck out and someone bends the rule for some reason.

Post purchase pricematching does still apply to purchases before March 3, but only to local competitor prices(B&M).
Price match policy for purchases before March 3

I think they changed the part about Post purchase pricematching for the policy linked for online retailers.

Best Buy will not price match during the return and exchange period. Best Buy will not price match the online prices of third party vendors (Marketplace Vendors) on Designated Major Online Retailers websites. Not valid on purchases at Best Buy Mobile stores or on Best Buy For Business purchases.

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?"

As per policy, yes. Depends on the store manager however as Silvers do have a 60 day return/exchange window. Essentially a really long way of PMing. However, there are draw backs to the return rebuy process. (90 day ban will be given to abusers systemically from returning products).

Well, looks like I'm going to try PMing Kmart's $44.99 price for TR. If it doesn't work, I'll have BBY's $49.99 price as a backup option.

Those are pretty much the trophies I was missing after my first playthrough, but I finished the entire game for a platinum in about 5 days. really loved the game. I don't get rid of my games, so that isn't really an option for me. I too also got the Season Pass. I can't wait to see what they do with the story.

Also, for some reason Prima Games asked me to write an article with some tips and my experience about getting it.

I don't get rid of the games I really love, so I think I'll be keeping Bioshock Infinite, thank you very much. :D

Congrats on getting noticed by Prima...I guess? It's a good thing, right? :???:

Based on how much I'm loving BI, I'm tempted to just get the $19.99 Season Pass from GS (I have more credit there than at BBY right now), since I have a hard time imagining the DLC will disappoint.
