So it has been confirmed that if you put down $5 towards Sunset Overdrive, you can still get $30 for GCU when you're paying off the game?

I'm not anywhere remotely close to a Costco, it was just an observation that I can't use my Wal-Mart or Best Buy credit on eneloops, despite my impending need for them.

Use your best buy gift cards / certificates to purchase Amazon Kindle gift card (I think they come in $25 & $50) at best buy store. Apply them to your Amazon account & buy your eneloops.

Best Buy stopped carrying Amazon cards. If you get lucky and you're store still has some left they will sell them but they dont restock them anymore.

Yes, I just got sick of the same, dumb question that's answered on every page, so I thought I'd let him learn the hard way.

No offense, but it's probably better to not reply at all than to reply with misinformation...

 

However, this thread could stand a FAQ section in the OP.

That's only off the top of my head. If I went thru my order history I would get more. Madden last gen was boomerang a few weeks ago. Buy it for $31.99 then trade it in for $44.

 

So in these instances how do you know? I see where the TIV is $40+10% but i'm assuming there was a sale for last gen that you took advantage of and locked in the price somehow? Can you break it down alitte more or go into more detail?

 

What I see on madden is:

-$31.99 - purchase 

+$44 - TIV 

$12 x 6 = $72

+152 x 6 = 912 points or $9.12 

If those all had $10 certs for pre-order/purchase +$60

Grand total earning on that transaction = $141-ish

 

Do you just take the initial hit on the purchase of the 6 copies ($190ish) and roll that into a never ending supply of free rentals and a growing balance of credit until you want to buy something large?

Oh, I know. I usually don't, and let someone else take it. However, after 17 pages and probably 25 iterations of the question, I couldn't resist.

I used existing gift cards and traded those in for new gift cards. No initial investment. Just $12 a copy plus points. Not the best but BB credit to BB credit. This was back in mid September.

Points take 30 days to go through. You still earn points for price matching. $1= 1 point. Sometimes people end up with multiple accounts. I recommend finding out what your Member ID # is and sticking to that one. Also using the my best buy card in store ( the one with the member id and the barcode)

 

Source: I am an BB employee. 

 

Points post after 15 days now, although promos like the $10 preorder can sometimes take up to 20.  Source: my points going through after two weeks for the past year without fail.

 

So it has been confirmed that if you put down $5 towards Sunset Overdrive, you can still get $30 for GCU when you're paying off the game?

 

Yup, since it'll be treated a normal transaction.  The situation this deal doesn't work with is trying to pay off the preorder of a game that comes out after 11/1 and get the discounted GCU; it won't work since putting down money for a preorder isn't considered a regular transaction and thus won't work with promos.

That was glorious and I did the same (even better when buying them the cashier only scanned 5 Maddens instead of 6)

Will I get my GCU discount when I go to pick up Sunset Overdrive though it's on the same transaction for buying GCU?

I went today to preorder SSO and i signed up for the free gamers club but I dont see anything about it,I also dont see anything about my preorder in mybestbuy account,did I do it right?

 

on my best buy account I see no mention of gamers club and i see no page made for gamers club login,how do I know I have it? does it auto merge with my best buy? also in my best buy I seen no mention of my preorder,does it usually say anything about preorders?

 

thanks

 

EDIT:I found my gamers club in my best buy but still dont know about the preorder, should it be showing up anywhere?

If it were an online order for in-store pickup, it couldn't be the same transaction as purchasing GCU.

If you pre ordered in store it won't show up online until you pick it up
