My 3 in store orders from this morning processed just fine. By the time I got home the emails were waiting for me.

I picked up my card, and have yet to receive an e-mail, and nothing was prompted in store.

No points, gonna call BB-Customer Service. Any one else with this issue?

I bought the card at a store but did not get my 800 MSP code. I was walking out of the store when I realized I had no code, so I went back in and started using a Macbook to look at this thread and see what was up. But then a Best Buy employee told me that the 800 MSP code would automatically activate when I use the XBL card. So I went home.

I wish I had continued to read this thread instead...

I also called the store later, and later talked to a Bestbuy.com support person, and was told that the 800 MSP part of the deal was only available in "limited quantities." So I guess the 800 MSP codes were all given away at my store.

Sigh... I didn't even want the XBL Gold part of this deal...

Dont stress, it's been sold out since this morning so getting home on time likely wouldnt have helped.

The register should prompt for the cashier to add the 800 point offer. Might then ask for your email. Then the code will print on the receipt and possibly get emailed. Just make sure the cashier doesn't bypass it thinking its an offer you dont want.

Question, if you buy 4, do all four codes print on the same receipt? Or do you have to do four different transactions?

yeah I heard you can buy together in one transaction..I "over thought" and had them scan my 2 cards separately as when I tried to checkout online it had only allowed me to add 1 to cart (I did this just as deal was running out of stock..hesitated too long and item was removed so I think they limited amount near the end of the online portion.

However I went to the store and bought 2 there. maybe should have grabbed 4 a year plus 3200 points sweet deal. Any way 2 better than none

Before I drive all the way to Best Buy, I just want to make sure, if I grab the in store 3 month card, I'll get it for 12.99 plus the free 800 msp code printed on my reciept?!

If they were this price all the time maybe they would have 80 million members rather than 40 :D

Just hit the best buy in Westland, mi for more cards. The cashier didn't know about the deal and couldn't figure out why points kept coming up. Still a lot of cards and it's still working in store.


Glad you got some I saw you had same issue as me, some in cart but waited too long LOL. I was very frustrated but happy to find in store worked just as well. Now wondering, should I have bought more..lol but I feel good I left plenty for others.

I have a 12 month but I don't play often enough so I did not want to use it, this is perfect, couple of 3 month ones will get me through the year (leave a gap for downtime when I am busy working.

Yes, also do as I did ask them to confirm you can see it come up on the chekout screen scans shows 12.99 screen flashes and adds 800 pts. It gets printed and they ask for email so they send them to you as well.

Ordered two online at 3:00 AM. Picked it up today and got the MSP emailed to me after the pickup. 3 months of live and 800 MSP for $13 is a steal.

Honestly I am amazed this deal lasted all day. Even if you say a 3 month card should be MSRP $15 (12 month rate) they are still selling $25 MSRP (card + points) for $13. Now the reality is that most 12 month cards can be gotten for $40 so it is really $20 for $13 but then you can get 1600 point cards for $15-17 so I guess it is like $17.50 for $13. Best case from this Holiday was New Egg 12 month for $35 + $10 Target 1600 point cards. So $55 for 12 months and 3200 points vs. $52 today. Kind of seems less impressive now but I still bought 8 of them.

Picked up 2 in-store and got the 800 MSP codes on my receipt.

Make sure to pick up this EXACT 3 month XBL Gold card for the $12.99 price, all others will ring up at normal pricing.

and if they do restock they will probably just get eaten up and put up on ebay by the dick bootys at slickdeals lol.


LOL your right..I love the site but saw some who claim to have bought up to 40 cards. No wonder these deals die to stores kill them. Surprised more stores don't add a limit like 5 or so (sure people could use different accounts but most would not bother or have enough CC's to bother)

Very true, shows the "real value" of these things I guess. I bought 2 1600's at Target (BF that had seemed best deal ever) and wished I had bought a couple more and a couple of 3 months back then at $10 now I am glad I did not.

This one is like last years 3 month $7.99 ( I missed that one) so to deal with increase they throw in some points...I can live with that :D

I got 2 earlier. The points are added automatically. You just have to wait a few seconds for the computer to add them. Considered getting more, but I just bought a 1 year subscription for $35. Should be good for a 1.5 years now :)

Yeah - I was pretty ticked when my order cancelled online! :lol:

I was working in Toledo, so I ran over to a store there and bought four. Came home to Michigan and bought two more. Stopped by another Best Buy and they had a bunch.

I haven't had gold in going on a year. This was just too good of a deal to pass up. Even if it meant going into Best Buy!

Too late for me to run to the store (I'd have to risk a speeding ticket to get there before it closes unless it's still on holiday hours)...but online they are "sold out" so pffffffft. Not sure how a virtual item can be sold out but oh well.
