Update (2013/09/02):

 

The Free Rockstar Game with pre-order portion of the promotion was closed prematurely and is now dead. Orders made while the deal was active will be honored as long as the free game chosen was not GTA V. These pre-orders will also still include the $10 or $20 RZ certificate.

 

Some Cags who used the glitch to get free copies of GTA V have gotten cancellation emails for glitched orders. Follow the thread's later pages to keep up on news, cancellations, etc.

Was this the "deal" you all were talking about in the other threads?  Maybe I read it wrong, but I previously thought the "deal" was you could buy two copies of GTA V for the price of one?  A free older Rockstar game is only like a $10-$20 benefit, imo.

^ It previously let you add to copies of GTA IV and the second copy was getting zeroed out. In fact if you added just the first copy it would show up at $0.

I also preordered a while ago.  If anyone knows how we go about taking advantage of this, that would be great.  I guess I could just cancel and re-make the preorder.

Probably just leave this alone... I already own GTA4 and Red Dead, not particularly interested in Midnight Club, and I really don't want to somehow jeopardize my $20 GCU gift cert...

Would love to know this too since I was headed to BB today for other reasons and had preordered GTA V from Amazon. This is a much better deal.

Well I already have a preorder at GS and I own GTA IV and Red Dead, but damn this is tempting.

I'm not going to do this, but you guys could always sell or trade in the free game (or trade your current copy of said game and keep the new/free one) to lower the overall cost for GTA V.  Say, $7 TIV at GS, plus 50% bonus = $10.50 extra savings off GTA V.

I was really excited about this deal, then I saw the games listed. No GOTY editions? These vanilla versions are virtually worthless at this point. Plus, I already played/adored RDR, and I'll have no desire to play GTAIV if/when I get GTAV. It'd be nice if they added some other R* game like Bully. Still, this is one of the best pre-order deals I've seen if you are GCU.

 

We don't know. We aren't best buy customer service. Try contacting them or going in a store.

 This forum is loads more helpful than Customer Service for most companies, it doesn't hurt to ask. I myself have gotten tons more help here regarding Origin/Nintendo than I did through either of their idiotic CS services.

I preordered long time ago in store...can I bring my preorder ticket and tell them and walkout with a free game?

 I highly doubt it, otherwise there's nothing stopping anybody from pre-ordering several times just to get $5 games. I'm sure you get this game after you pick up your GTAV pre-order.

I didn't go through the complete checkout (I'm hoping to match in store since I already pre ordered), but it looks like it should ship right away. My guess is, if you try to cancel or return GTA V, they'll just take the $20 as if you just purchased the free game itself.

 

Can anyone that ordered confirm?

Might have to try this in store, would just go for it online but the store I'd want to pick up the game at isn't showing up as an option. So weird. 

 

I know it isn't much, but seriously, you could turn around and trade Red Dead for $6.30 back to them. Think of it as just getting an extra $6 back on top of the $20 you get back from RZ.  Then just pray to the gaming gods that someone, somewhere, sells the game for a bit less release week (or even that someone throws in a gift card or guide deal or something) that we can maybe match.

Wait, what? When I pre-ordered, it was $5 minimum. Now it's $20?

If it's $20 to pre-order I could totally see them letting you take the game now. I didn't realize they'd raised the minimum down for the pre-order.

I think you misunderstood.   online you have to pay full cost of pre-order, in store you can do $5 or pay full price.  Either way, he was saying that if you did the pre-order, go the free game and then later tried to cancel the pre-order they would charge you $20 for the previous free game.

I just called Best Buy.  Short answer - if you preordered before this promotion, the only way to get it is to cancel your preorder and do it again.

And if you're an @Gamer subscriber you'll get the $20 in RZ points as well if you cancel today and order again?

Anyway, I have RDR already and not really interested in GTAIV.  How is Midnight Club?  I have Forza 4. Is it similar to that or does it feel more arcade like NFS?

I didn't ask about that, but I'm counting on it.  The game is still listed on the Gamer's Club website, and we're still pre-ordering the game, so if they don't give the certificate I'll be spending another 30 minutes of hell on the phone with their support.
