It's a clearance price not a weekly sale price.

I went and couldn't get a PM. I think they said no Best Buy in the state of Michigan had them in stock so I couldn't get it.

I went in for a price match this morning. The cashier looked it up in the system and it came up as $59.99. I don't know if she entered the price wrong for the price match or if the system automatically pulls it up. Pretty happy paying $40 for the collector's set. $60 with price match - the $20 in reward zone certificates.

That's nuts. You're making me regret not getting it two months ago.

Do the store that you guys are getting the PM at have them in stock or do other nearby Best Buy's have them in stock?

Alright, so I printed my receipt from dot com, and I plan on bringing it to my local store.

That should be all I need right?

Edit: The website doesn't even show it anymore. Anybody have any luck bringing it up in case I get questioned? Don't want to be that guy saying "The internet told me the price went down!"

Anyone have any success Pming a Dot Com order. I did ship to storelike a week after release. I wish I could just go to store.

I made an online order, so the rep called a local Best Buy near to confirm price and stock. I just got a PM, but your local store might need stock for it. It's pretty much YMMV if the rep needs to call the store.

If you have issues with calling in try going into the store with your order number to PM. PM for online orders are handled as return repurchase or exchange, so you may lose you Gamer's Unlocked RZ points.

I'm in Michigan and I just got back from adjusting my release-day copy. I only brought my receipt and I simply said I would like a price adjustment on this game that should be currently on sale. I let the register/worker do the work and it was like any other return or price match.

I feel much better about $70 for the LE. I was on the fence of the value at $100 and definitely felt ripped off after some of the perks were given away for free, but this seems like I'm getting more than I paid for. Thanks to aircobra for posting this.

Dang, I think I would have gotten it but the girl helping me got hung up on the limited edition guide and was confused on what item I wanted to get price matched. Maybe I will try another Best Buy later.

Question. I'm wanting the Season Pass for Halo 4 with little concern for Limited Edition extras. Would it be a cheaper choice for me to trade in my vanilla copy of Halo 4 and get the LE or just find some cheap Microsoft Points for the Season Pass. I could care less about the other contents of the LE. Season Pass is my main concern.

You'll get a little more than $30 for your tradein, so the season pass + other bonuses is going to set you back $40, while buying MSP at current prices is going to set you back about $20 for 2000 for the season pass on XBL. Unless you're planning on selling the Steelbook and notebook and stuff to cover the differences, it won't be worth it.

Does anybody know how the personal shopper program works for silver members? I saw one at a store about 40 miles away a few days ago, but passed thinking my local store still had some. I was wrong and if I understand things properly, they would ship one over from the other store. Is this how it works?

EDIT: I was able to call and have them hold the them at the farther store, and they are $69.99.

Nice. Took about 30 minutes on the phone with customer service but I managed to price match my In Store Pickup I had made. Can't beat $30+tax back and getting that $20 reward certificate for pre-ordering!

Walked in with my receipt, went to customer service, walked out with $31.08 back in my account in 5 minutes.

Thanks for the heads up!

Went to a different Best Buy and got the Price Match. I really don't think she found the game in the computer because she looked for it for 5 minutes and then asked "How much was it on sale for again?" and within 30 seconds she put $31.80 on my credit card. I won't complain.

man, this went off without a hitch. They didn't even notice the 'package promotion' from when I bought the guide with it. $32.xx refunded to my BB CC.

And for all those that aren't getting the PM due to it not being in stock, I ran a few possible throwbacks in my head on the way to the store: 1) well yeah, seeing as if the store only got enough for pre-orders, I wouldn't expect you to have any and/or 2) oh, thats no problem, I still have it sealed at home and can be right back to do a return re-buy (and hopefully the don't call the bluff b/c you know that sh*t ain't still sealed :lol:)

Try another store. You could also do a return/rebuy I believe.
