The other day I went to Best Buy and in the PS4 section saw this Killzone Shadow Fall Season Pass for PS4 marked down to FREE.

Cashier tried to ring it up but it kept charging the $19.99. 20 minutes later or so, a manager came over and did an override.

 

Now, I just have to get the game.

 

Receipt proof.

Hope this helps someone else!

I cant believe a manager actually adjusted it. Good for you. Super jealous.

I tried getting it and was denied. Anyone feel like being generous and giving me your code? I know, not likely. Still maybe I'll try another BB

Unfortunately the Gears Judgement season pass/1600 pt code cards like those ring up as not able to be sold.

 

I still have my free $25 Ouya credit :/

Gonna try and see if this is at my Best Buy tomorrow. I seriously doubt it though. My Best Buy never has anything remotely as good as this.

 

If anyone happens to not use their code, or manages to grab an extra, then PM me and we might be able to work something out.

From what I've heard that's not all that enforced unless you make it real obvious you're game laundering lol.

I saw New Super Luigi U marked for free like this a few months ago but already had the game and didn't really feel like going through the hassle of trying to get it again for free. I wonder what causes it to print a free tag though..

One thing that really helped was taking a picture of the Free tag with my phone and showing that to the cashier. Once the manager saw that, he overrode the price.

Went to my best buy in Nampa ID and they essentially told me to screw off. One associate went to get a manager only to find out that he wasn't a manager and he took me to another dude who apparently was a manager. They all said feel free to take the cards they wont do anything but they were free. Naturally I should have known better as this best buy is total horse **** in customer service. Any who if you happen to be in the Washington, Idaho, and Oregon areas and need to talk to a general manager he's on linkedin.

Not that they will honor it, but the law usually is that if there is a price mistake but the price mistake is believable (say, a $99.99 for $89.99) and reasonable that they must honor it. 

 

In this case, it's a download code. The paper is worthless without going through a transaction -- so buy saying "Free" they are really implying that they are giving away the DLC. 

I was just super polite and acted a little clueless and a lot grateful.

I'd bet if you bought the game(even pricematched) with it, you could get it for free.

I remember something similar happening at best buy 1 or 2 years ago with the AC3 Season Pass. That time everyone got one with no questions asked.

There is no such law and hate when people say this. It's just good customer service for stores to honor the price if it's within reason.
