bought two NBA baller beats with PM to gamestop. no prompt for gift card. paid with RZ certs so not gonna return it.

just checked online, putting two of the same game will not net you the gift card. so pick up baller beats with another game if you're gonna try it.


Good edit because someone on the last page split Baller with something else, PMed and got the GC. I almost tried with 2 halo 4s but didn't want to chance it.

Pm'ed 2 copies of forza and the gc prompt popped no problem. Even used the $10 mystery coupon best buy sent out today without a hitch.

That's strange, I just tried pm'ing over the phone and the lady helping me said she'd do it, but her supervisor told her she can't. So she asked another supervisor and that one said another department has to do it, so she would forward the info to another dept and give me a case number. I would then have to wait for an email from this other dept telling me they did the pm.

This is very weird considering I was able to do the pm last night on the phone w/o any issues.

What?

Someone posted a thread earlier in the day (can't find it now though) Basically BB did another "Bring this coupon in to a cashier to see what it's worth" e-mailing. Pretty cool cause the cheapest value this time is $10 rather than $5. 2 copies of forza and a $40 gc for $76 AC ----->Both copies of forza traded to GS for $70 = Not too shabby!

It works with 2 of the same title. Just add a $40 gc after you add the games.

Interesting. I'd love to find this coupon. I didn't get an email.

i ordered by the phone 1 halo 4 and 1 forza orizon trying to get the deal and the guy was very nice, he did match the prices and he said "oh! you will get a $40 giftcard" i was was like, "yup :B" and then he did the order and i told hem "can i do another order? i want to take advantage of this deal" and he said "let me see if this has a limit.... nope, the are no limits for this offer" so i did two orders with the same guy!... a very good deal to flip the games and get $48 dollars extra ;)

I think they may have changed that, as I tried to order sleeping dogs twice this morning in order to PM the newegg.com price of $29.99, however the representative said that it wasn't allowing her to add the same game to the order more than once.. So I went online to see if it would let me add the same game twice, and unfortunately it told me "Sleeping dogs has a quantity limit of 1 per order. Please enter a new quantity for this item."

I guess they dont want us ordering the same game twice in a single order, lol.

Thanks OP and all contributors.

I bought Halo 4 and Hitman Absolution. Should I have chosen Dishonored instead of one of the other two?

The computer wouldn't let me use more than $35 worth of rewardzone certificates. I guess it was because it wouldn't go over $39.99. My total was $79.99. Then subtract the 40 gift certificate and you get $39.99. I believe this might be why the computer wouldn't allow more than $35 worth of rewardzone certificates. Does anyone know for sure?

In the end I used $35 worth of rewardzone certificate, $27 worth of giftcards, and $20 cash.

It's a shame I had to spend $20 cash because I had $20 worth of rewardzone certificates left on my account that the computer wouldn't let me use. I'm not complaining though because $20 cash and $65 worth of Best Buy credit/certificates is a good deal for Halo 4, Hitman Absolution and a $40 giftcard.

I would have bought those games when they were $19.99 or lower sometime down the road. It's nice to buy them early for $19.99 instead of being a cheapass and waiting.

I would have gotten Dishonored over Hitman. I unfortunately suffered the corrupted save problem right at the last mission. So I promptly traded it in the next day because I didn't feel like playing the whole thing again.

This is why BB stopped matching GC deals. Stupidly enough, since they removed that info from their PM policy, now they don't remember how to handle PMing when they offer the GC. Oh BB... :lol:

This deal has nothing to do about PM'ing GC deals. We are just PM the price of the games and the free GC is a BBY deal for buying 2 games on the list of qualified games. If you do this in store you don't even have to say anything about the free GC, it will pop up after they hit total. I'm sure everyone that's being turned down is because the mgr is overlooking at the transaction.

Fuck all that work and I forgot to get the last Gift Card...

Went to Best Buy to PM Baller Beats (19.99 Gamestop) with Just Dance 4 (29.99 Target))
Decided to pick up Halo 4 (39.99 Target) and Hitman Absolution (39.99 Target))
then I realized I got the Mystery Reward Cert ($10 of course) so I went back to pick up Baller Beats (Again) and Dishonored (39.99 Target)

I was in such a rush that I don't remember pocketing the GC after the cashier rang it up. Ugh, am I screwed for my last GC?

Was finally able to get a cashier who didn't care that I got a pm and the promo offers. They were probably just trying to get rid of me after doing a price match for 4 different games.

Ended up matching Baller Beats, Halo 4, New Super Mario 2 and Paper Mario Sticker Stars.

I tried to do this and it blocked the associate from applying PM after purchase. I then tried returning the 1 game and it deducted 20.00 of the 40.00gc from my return. The deal for the OP definitely seems ymmv. At the time of my purchase I tried to PM and it took away the gc.
