Yeah, obviously the 1600 points + 400 extra points deal is better. No idea what Best Buy is thinking, but hey, the might get a few suckers.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

Thanks for pointing out this deal over the other one. I was gonna get the 2000 until I saw this. I just need the 1600 for Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

It's the exact same deal...

2000 msp = 24.99
1600 msp = 19.99

400 msp = 5.00

Edit: forgetting what site this was for a second, but the difference in the deals doesn't come into play unless your buying a mass quantity.

Ummm. No.

Basically one deal is 25% "bonus" points, and the other is 20%.

I'll go with the 25% bonus, considering that also has lower up-front costs ($20 vs $25).

This. 1600+400 is basically 100 points per dollar, which is usually the best deal on MS points.

You see I went in store to do this and I haven't gotten the 400 points bonus yet through email. Although they didn't say that I think bought the regular 1600 points.

But I want to buy online this time. Ah!!

It's a physical card, and why not do it for in store pick up?

Haven't gotten my bonus points yet and I bought the gears season pass code that was in the ad, I made a post about it on the BB forums and if I hear back from them before I get my points I'll post what they said about the promo.

My first order for store pickup of a 1600 pt card was just canceled.
Said because they could not verify my information.

Trying again. :(

I also bought the gears season pass yesterday and never received the bonus points. I saw your post on the BB forums but I know it'll take time for someone to respond so I called customer service. The call took 20 minutes and I was told that one of their Gaming Specialists would send me the code within 24 hours.

Ah, I've never used the forum before but looking over other peoples posts it does seem to take a while, good to know that if it takes too long I can call them up and get it sorted out that way at least, I just know last time I called them it took forever to get through and the person on the other end had no idea what they were talking about :/

When I purchased it I didn't buy the actual "card", I printed out a GoW:J Season Pass voucher from the kiosk and paid for it at the register. I got an email almost immediately with the same code from the receipt. I purchased around 3PM yesterday so I'll give them about 24hrs then call because I think the ad says you should get the email with the bonus points 30 minutes to 8 hours from purchase. Maybe because I used the printed voucher the system doesn't recognize it?

I probably got lucky. When I first called, I was transfered to "Gaming". I spoke to the woman there for about 15 minutes. She then transferred me to the "back office" and the lady there told me to give them 24 hours after she verified my info.

My situation is exactly the same as yours. The only difference is that the lady at the register had to get the sku from the ad since the barcode on the voucher was unreadable due to low ink.

Just got off the phone with Best Buy and they gave me the same crap. My account has been flagged for fraud. My Premium Silver account, mind you. The woman said it could take up to a week to be processed through the fraud department and get cleared.

Just wow.

I love these deals, people go absolutely crazy every time they will get free 400-800 points and act like its the deal of the century. Then when the order screws up, they get on here and rant and rave.
