Scored the free guide (due to pm to TRU) with my DS3 pickup last night. Was there any BB DLC included with this game ?


Is this mentioned in a TRU ad or anything? I'm having a hard time tracking it down. Wouldn't mind trying to match that though.

So I just got an email from bb in regards to my crysis 3 online pre order being cancelled due to an error and they gave me a 20 $ promotional coupon to use online as an apology for the inconvenience . I heard they were gonna be giving out 10 $ gift cards for bioshock pre orders being cancelled so I was gonna call CS about it today before i got the email , 20 $ not bad .

Yup its in the weekly ad. I brought it with me yesterday and got the guide no prob. YMMV though since its a "bundle" DEAL.

It was very quick and easy to pick up my in-store preorder of DS3, though I was a bit...perturbed (maybe? wrong word?) that the employee at the Store Pickup desk asked another employee to go get a copy off the shelf for me while I paid the remaining balance. It was funny when I walked over to the video game section after paying, found the employee looking for the start of the :360: section, which is not in an obvious place, and pointed at the copies on the shelf to show him where they were.

Hopefully I'm set for the $20 in RZ points with this new system in place; the only evidence that I preordered the game on my receipt is the "Preorder Deposit" line beneath the game title.

I was pressed for time, so even if I had brought the TRU ad with me, I wouldn't have had time to PM the free guide offer. However...I've never used a guide for the series yet, and I don't plan on starting now! :D

Haha, I'm with you. I've amassed a pretty silly collection of guides, but I use them for maybe 6% of the games I play. Ni No Kuni's is one of the few I've touched this generation. I tend to just hope for good art.

i just got a $20 best buy gift card as well after asking about the problem on the best buy customer service forums. it seems like they are fully aware of the issue and it should be resolved but you will have to reorder the item that was cancelled.

best buy has screwed up quite a few small things here and there for me but posting about it in their forum always seems to resolve the issue in the end.

edit.
actually best buy just emailed me a $20 promotional code to apologize for the cancellation on top of the $20 gift card the customer service rep mailed to me for asking about the issue. i'm ok with this.

After getting all excited for crysis 3 on ps3 I fired up Killzone 3 for the first time in awhile. That game is sick and makes me wonder if I should wait on crysis for a drop and that multiplayer a little longer.

:roll: Basically the same thing in Dead Space 2, expect the one in this game is way harder to obtain due to classic mode and it looks "cooler".

Has anyone pm'ed Fry's price of DS3 to CS over the phone yet?

I was going to pre-order the CE for God of War Ascension, but the $20 certificate isn't offered. What gives??? Oh well. Hopefully I'll be able to snag one once the price drops.

I got this pre-ordered and my store told me I would get it the $20. If was mentioned on the BB forums that the games CE will count if its on the $20 promo lists.

I believe it is offered, just not listed on the website. A rep on BB said all CEs qualify for this, I think.

This point delay thing sucks because I have like 3 games to get next month and was hoping I'd have most of my certificates by then so I could use them towards the games, hopefully it won't go from 2/24 to 3/24 and it will still be based on time of purchase.

I haven't played the demo yet, but I preordered the gorgeous steelbook through Amazon.de and I plan on picking up the CE guide since Piggyback is behind it, and I plan on picking up the game once I've actually played through MGS 2-4 (sad, I know :cry:).

I also picked up DS3 and ohmygoshIloveitsomuch, so I'm going to be pretty satisfied with that, at least until Tomb Raider. ;)

Fuck BB RZ certs. I got Assassin's Creed 3 and Halo 4 from Best Buy and never received my $20 RZ certs. They claimed I'd get them in 4-6 weeks. It's now February and I never got an email from BB about them. I refuse to trust BB about these things unless they print the cert out AT CHECKOUT.

Now, now calling requires effort. This on the other hand requires no effort at all.

Personally $40 in BBY Spacebucks would make me call since Reward Zone Customer Care is pretty good at fixing issues but again that effort thing gets in the way so I can see why he wouldn't want to do that.

Oh I plan on calling CS, but why should I have to call CS at all? Why can't they just do it right the first time instead of making me do extra work for something they promised me? It is just shady if you ask me. They hope people either forget or are too lazy to call and get their certs. Heck, I forgot about the certs until I saw this thread again and was like "wtf, I never did get my certs."

There's literally zero reason they can't give you the cert when you pick the game up. Amazon does it. Even Gamestop does it. It's that kind of business practice that makes me never want to order from them again, unless there's some immediate gain.

Fry's normally offer a lower price before the game comes out as a pre-order incentive. They bump it back up to MSRP on release date.

Probably so they don't have to deal with the issue of people returning the games to try to keep the cert. I believe when items with bonus gift cards are returned, they deduct the gift card from the refund, but I doubt they have their system set up to handle the same issue with certs.

You don't even have to call CS though if you don't want to. I didn't get my cert for Far Cry 3. I took 2 minutes to send them an email about it, and 2 days later got a reply that they issued the points to my account, and they would post in 24-48 hours.
