Time to double dip, people. I just pre-ordered at Best Buy for $39.99 by calling customer service. If you want to pay $39.99 AND get a $20 BB credit (plus DLC), this is the way to go. You may kind of have to walk them through it a bit (add to cart, enter code, etc.), but it definitely is in line with their new policy. Remember, you now have to price match during the order process, so no PMs to existing orders.


Do you remember which rep you spoke to?

EDIT: Called them, and it looks like a memo is going around saying that they can't pricematch Newegg promo codes. I was able to pricematch Fry's, though - they have it for $49.99.

Boom - just got it. I called the Premier Silver number - in my experience I get better service from that number. I told the CS rep the lower price was at newegg.com, but I don't think he even checked their site because I didn't have to explain the promo code situation. I had not placed an order for the game yet, so the CS rep placed an order for me with the $20 deducted. All said and done, a total of $39.99 plus taxes.

Is it really that difficult to get a freakin customer service number off the Best Buy website....????

888-237-8289....


EDIT: That's what I get for answering the phone and not reloading the page to see new posts.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

What kind of shipping does Newegg use for preorders?

Who cares about skins and those nonsense when you get $20 off? :P

Thanks OP.


Hah. It depends if you want to get the season pass. If so, MS store or BB are both offering 20$ gift cards essentially with it (BB if you have GCU). So either of those would be a better option in that case. Comes out even no matter which way you look at it if you want the season pass.

Every time I've done it has been free 3 day shipping, shipped out Monday and received on Wednesday (of release week). Results may vary.

I didn't get it on the first try either. I called again immediately and it went through with a different rep. YMMV when it comes to Best Buy customer service.

Guess it won't hurt to keep trying. I'll call back later tonight to see if my luck changes.

Do you guys just say check newegg's website or what?

Also, do I place the order then call them, or do I call them and they place the order for me? I want to use a $10 certificate.

it's likely doa the moment you mention video game and/or Newegg to a Best Buy rep. People on both the regular and silver lines already knew about this when called an hour ago and have been since.

FWIW, last two preorders I have done through Newegg w/ free standard shipping have both shipped the evening before relase and, as I am in CT (shipped from Edinson), received on release day- Halo 4/Gears 3

I know I won't get the the retailer specific preorders from newegg, but how about the Hammerburst weapon and Gears 1 download code that were stated to come with all preorders?

Anyone know if those codes were for all launch copies or just preorders from those specific retailers?


Does anyone have an answer to this?

I believe that they're both inside the case as long as you get the first run of copies produced.

I was gonna hold off on this game but $39.99 w/no tax was too enticing. No character skin = no big deal.

To anyone trying, try doing this and calling back at least a time or two. Customer service varies GREATLY with the rep you get. Some want to get your business and do what they can, some don't know "official policy" or follow it exactly. It really just depends. So yeah, it's worth giving it a couple shots at least if you don't get it the first time or two. I don't want to go through the hassle of dealing with their customer service for the site or waiting for my preorder or anything (already have it preordered from them in store) so I won't be taking advantage of it. Good luck to those of you trying though.

This is assuming you pay full price for MS Points. I'm pretty sure no one on CAG pays full price for MS Points. Also, you will have to wait a few weeks for your rewards cert. I'd rather have cash up front and decide how I want to spend it. Also, Newegg doesn't charge me tax. MS and Best Buy both do, so that's a few more dollars. The biggest disadvantage for Newegg is the shipping speed.

I am on now with a gamer rep. I think she is on to this. Said there has been some issues price matching this game.

Shot down. Oh well.

Ordered from NewEgg.

Thanks DieGo2SHAE.
