Just came back from getting my release day copies of AC3 and Halo 4 PM'd to get the $40 gift card (Also PM'd both on release day for $49.99) had no problem both say price match on my receipt so I'm sure my certs. from preordering will be just fine and dandy also Pm'd BO2 down to the $49.99 sale price.All in All $53 back I'm pretty happy

What happens if you use the certificate and return the game after?

I was refused price matches on AC3 and Halo 4. Are you a silver member? If not, why the hell wasn't I able to PM those games?

I grabbed the games about a week after release date. Her explanation was that it was outside the 30-day window, but not late enough into the month to qualify for the holiday price match promotion.

I don't think you passed HS math.

You'll be trading in and getting less than what you paid for it.


Actually, he is right.

Buy:

1. Halo 4 - $39.99
2. Halo 4 - $39.99
3. $40 Gift Card - $0.00
Total: Approximately $84 after tax

Trade:

Both Halo 4 copies for - $76.80 after promotions

He then gets to keep the $40 gift card which he essentially only paid about 9 to 10 dollars for (plus he would get a $20 reward certificate for preordering).

Yea I'm silver they tried to tell me that at first too because AC3 came out 10/31 and halo 4 11/06 just outside of PM range for regular members if bought on release day

Your account would get put 1000 points in the hole if you're talking about returning a pre order you got the $20 certificate for preordering


Edit:yes you get the $20 certificate for preordering with gift cards still

Thank you!
you basically pay $84 fo 116.8GC in BestBuy


Also, Im not sure you can trade in two Halo 4 at the same time. may require another GCU and ID for the second one trade in.

I'm about to stop by Best Buy...can someone tell me my best bet for gettin this deal in my case?

I have my FC3 receipt ($34.54 after $5 deposit, and $25 RZ certs).

Should I just say I want to buy Hitman and see if they can price match FC3, or will they have to do a return/rebuy to get it all on the same receipt with the GC?

In all honesty, they could just deduct $40 off Hitman...it doesn't matter to me.

Its only $2.4 any way(2%*2 GCU bonus)

You also just paid $84 to save a few bucks on a $40 gift card.


Your last few posts have made it seem like you have no clue what you're talking about.

Go in, tell them you want to price match them. If they cant for FC3 they can for Hitman. Dont mention $40 gift card. And it should prompt it automatically. Just act suprised when it does lol.

You can pick of Play station allstars for $20. Normally $60 if you use Gamestops glitch. If it works and you have a PS3.


Wait...what am I telling them I want to PM? Hitman or FC, or both?

I know walmart and target have Hitman for $39.99...but Idk who has FC3 for sale

Because he is paying $84, trading in for 76 and hasas a $40 gift card? Effectively meaning he paid about $ 10 or so on a $40 gift card. Nothing really special.


hmm let's see, Pay $10, get a $40GiftCard. Pre-order The Last of US, chip in $20+3.75 Cash/tax + $40 GC. Reward Certificate $20.
10+3.75 cash/tax for The Last of Us FIRST DATE?:applause::applause:(You may have a chance to PM during return period, $50 at Walmart,Target,etc within the 30 days of release? I could totally see that happen)

Yeah you holding about $115 GC value, but look at those GCU 20RC pre-order list: The last of us, tomb raider, Crysis 3,Splinter Cell, GTA V........




PS: PM while still keeping the $20 Reward Certificate, hows that work? I heard the 20RC promotion end after 7th days of release.

How long does this promotion run?
The promotion will end 7 days after the last game is released.


If I receive a price match from an in-store or BestBuy.com purchased game, will I still qualify for the $20 bonus certificate?
Yes. A price match done in-store or on BestBuy.com within policy will not affect your eligibility for the $20 bonus certificate.


It seem somewhat contradicting

Both. Frys has $50 FC. If they cant price match that, then hitman for $40 at target or wherever.


Yea...but my far cry is on a separate receipt. And to PM Hitman would be a new transaction...so where are these 2 games getting combined to prompt the $40 GC pop up to the sales rep?

Idk where you're going with this.

I could PM FC3, and then BUY Hitman for $39.99 on a different receipt...but that process isn't going to get me the GC.

LoL still not exactly what is happening (he's actually trading $84 US Dollars for $116 Best Buy Dollars a nice 38% ROI). But to say that 25 cents on the dollar for best buy credit is not special, that is crazy.

What he really wanted was halo 4 and some game from Q1 2013, so I suddgested he can trade in one copy of Halo 4 and get back his cost on it more or less, then he can use that 40 towards the game not yet out, and keep the giftcard and his copy of Halo 4.

What are you talking about? Have you already bought FC? if not, PMs go on same receipt. If you can't PM FC then just PM hitman for $40 and it will give you a $40 GC for the both of them.

If you pre ordered FC to get $20, you cant do this promotion.


Of course I already preordered it. Did you not read my first post?? "I have my FC3 receipt"...

And of course I can do this promotion. I just get them return/rebuy FC3 with Hitman for the GC, then I call up CS an tell them that no ACTUAL return was made, but describe the details, and chances are they'll automatically credit the promo $20 on my account..

Either in store or call them to pm, cant do bestbuy.com pricematch, instore they don't like to pm ang give gc, over phone they do the website purchase in place of you, but should work eventually once u get the right rep.

3 because i can reach the $100 for $50 off my AMEX too. So i can take advantage of the whole thing. It'll end up being $10 per game. But first i'll need to know if the reps have caught on.

sorry if I wasn't clear, but I meant that I price matched the current deal of getting a 40$ giftcard with the two-game purchase. they just gave me 20$ off both far cry and ACIII.
