Dammit, Best Buy has AC4 and BF4 releasing tomorrow, wasn't able to preorder in-store just now. Well guess I'll stick with Target unless Amazon truly does the same deal.

 

You've always been able to pre-order up to the day before the game is released. You should have been able to pre-order both of them.

Yeah they wouldn't let me aside from preordering online, which screws up the best deal with the GCU 20% off. Made a topic on BB's forum about it, see if anything happens as I'd be going to a competitor otherwise.

Answer coming on the preorder issue and how it relates to getting the certs from the Get $10 offer very soon. The issue here is very few of the PS4 and XBX1 games have actual street dates and that is causing problems with preorder.

 

As you were saying, can still preorder online but not in-store on many of these titles. But if your GCU is expired and you are waiting for your renewal offer to hit, you can't get your 20% discount on the order. If your GCU is still live, no issue for ordering through .com.

 

You'll see a recommendation on how best to order to make sure you get all the offers you are eligible to get very soon.

Buy 3 games save 20% off each would be $36 saving ($12 off each) plus the $25 gift card equaling $61 total Saving :-$

The Same as Target B2G1... Plus if you have something pre-order getting the $10 would make it $71 in all, way more then Target right? :-k  :shock:

I'd love to know the answer to this.  Most retailers would never allow that many promos to stack, but Best Buy can be very generous or very foolish at times...

Target is still better because it is less out of pocket and you aren't limited on what games you can get. Plus the 30% off coupon should be able to be used at Target as well.

At Best Buy if you have the GCU you are paying $144 for 3 games and $25-35 in credit (depends on if you want an eligible $10 promo game). The credit can take up to a month to receive as well.

Best Buy Forum post on the subject/question: http://forums.bestbu...ent/td-p/723505

 

Eligible for both discount AND any reward certificate promotions. If all three of your titles were preordered and part of the Get 10 offer then your total benefit is: $36 in savings (20% GCU discount) + $25 in certificates (buying 3 qualified PS4 games by 11/16) + $30 in certificates (preordering and purchasing 3 "Get 10 titles") - that's $91 total.

 

If you've got a bunch of BBY credit, even better.

If I preorder AC4, Killzone, and BF4 online for pick up now, will I be eligible for the $25 credit? I see that they are taking the 20% off for GCU, but if the $25 credit for 3 games isn't until next week I'm worried it won't be applied even if I pick them up next week.

Actually just thought about the same thing. The ad scan says "purchase...this week"

I just called and spoke with a couple of people at My Best Buy and they confirmed that the $10 RZ does indeed stack with the 20%. Here is what I was told:

 

If you ordered online for in-store pick-up: they will do a price adjustment and give you the $12 back on your CC or on a gift card at the time of pick-up.  

 

If you ordered on-line with shipping:  once the item is delivered, call the 888 number and speak to "on-line post purchase support" for the adjustment.  They will do the adjustment that way.

Thanks for the news. I guess I will have to wait til next week to pick up my BF4 and AC4, hope I get the GCU coupon before then and that if I buy Kilkzone seperately it still registers the 3 for $25 cert

No one said launch was easy lol!

What is the $10 RZ cert preorder offer? Does it only work on ACIV, or can I get it on NBA 2K14 (for PS4)? Now that I'll have GCU unlocked again with the 20% discount I'm looking at getting this there - but only if I can get the additional $10 RZ cert. At just $48, I'll wait... Sorry, I have been totally out of the loop for Best Buy deals recently.

The wording on this is kinda fishy, maybe I just don't buy from best buy that often but can someone help me out here?

 

"Purchase 3 of any select titles, receive a $25 My Best Buy Bonus Points *Offer valid through 11/16*"

 

Aren't the bonus points just 25 points added to your balance? Not an actual GC?

 

Thanks.

You will receive $25 worth of points to your account. It usually take 30 days, then it turns into a $25 certificate.

So pretty much today is the last day to preorder BF4 and AC4 online since it's too late to do it instore. I think this is gonna be hard to purchase say KZ next week and call to try and get the extra $25 cert since if you get BF4 and AC 4 this week that promo is not active yet.

I just got shut down trying to do a PM on Batman Origins by using the 20% GCU discount. She told me to return and rebuy but that's not gonna happen since I got the metalpak and the $10 bonus cert.

So it looks like either preorder both BF4 and AC4 now and get the bonus $20 Cert for both or wait til next week and buy 3 games in one transaction to get the $25 cert bonus. Decisions, decisions....

If I preorder 3 games that are eligible for the $10 dollar reward certs, would I still be eligible for the $25 for 3 deal making it $55 reward certs in total? Can this deal be combined?

At my local best buy you can still pre order BF4 and the like. That's strange. Maybe YMMV?

Same question but for NBA 2K14. I'll give it a shot tomorrow, maybe, if I can get out there. Otherwise I won't be able to do it until Saturday.

Also, how do you know what the in-store cutoff date is for preorders?

I've done this a handful of times - I've successfully preordered up to Saturday afternoon in-store prior to release and gotten the points.  As long as it shows up in the kiosk for preorder you should be fine.  The system only really cares that you're in the gamer's club and that you picked it up within X days of release.  I'm going to go pick up an AC4 preorder today since the anecdotal evidence over in the Target b2g1 thread is that shit is gonna suck over there next week.
