In Topic: SteelBook Worldwide Exclusive 2014

Yesterday, 07:53 PM

Target seems to have the Batman Assault on Arkham steelbook in stock as of the time of this post:

http://www.target.co...ve/-/A-16233249

 

Shows as $17.99 and says Steelbook in the item description, plus shows the correct item picture.  I ordered one with some other items and will see what shows up by the end of the week.

Just received my package from Target and it was the steelbook for Assault on Arkham.  Packed in a box, even.

I know you're not a mod anymore, but I gotta say that your crew is pretty awful at their job.  All that guy does is troll, and yet the mods seem to be completely ok with it.  On any well-moderated forum, the guy would've been banned a long time ago.

Make complaints to Cheapy about the mods.  They're not "my crew" any longer, so nothing I can do with any complaints.

What?  Where did I make anything up?  Were you the cashier or the manager I spoke to?  If not, who are you to accuse me of lying?

I don't know if it's an issue anyone else on this site had or not (as I already said), the only reason I even mentioned it was to emphasize that sometimes people have different experiences with companies.  The last thing I wanted was to start a feud, or have some random schmuk to waltz up and call me a liar out of the blue.

No, though the cashier or manager you spoke with were full of shit and they were trying to screw you out of the 20% you would be due with GCU.  I'd go call the 888-BESTBUY number and make a complaint about the store.  Calling the RM or DM for that store isn't going to make any difference since it's likely his/her BS policy that is what the staff are putting out in-store.  You could call them and if it's not their policy, said store employees are going to be in a lot of trouble.

 

Kmart SYWR points are only good for two weeks after they are awarded. If we are comparing store rewards, myBestBuy certificates are good for a minimum of 6 months. I'll concede that Kmart preorder incentives are a nice bonus but you're forced to chain too many purchases within a short amount of time. Two weeks to use SYWR points is obviously much more restrictive. Kmart is a lot less convenient too since there must be at least 5 times as many BB stores for every 1 Kmart store.

Another thing you're overlooking is that we're only comparing Day 1 preorders. If I wanted to just pick up The Last of Us to play this weekend, which retailer will give me the better deal? BB gives me the 20% discount regardless of whether I preordered it back in June or should it go on clearance 3 years from now. I picked up Naruto Ninja Storm this week but what if I forgot to preorder it? Which retailer will give me the best deal? GCU obviously makes BB the best and most consistent gaming offer.

As to your specific experiences, you just ran into some bad luck. Your case is a more specific, rare circumstance. Most employees would never argue that a CE is the same as an accessory. You could have just won the argument by pulling up their website on a smartphone and showing them how collector editions are not categorized under the accessory section. The automatic discount at the POS on top of the website search would have shut them up right there. Best Buy's website offers you the flexibility to make an online preorder ready for pickup on Day 1. I've never had an issue with having an online preorder ready for me.

lol You must kidding me about the shrike question, right? I've seen you here long enough to figure you know who he is. He's one of the opinions on here that I respect.

Local BS policy from employees is still BS policy, right? 

 

Why are you guys arguing about Kmart?

 

Did anyone who didn't get a confirmation yesterday get one today? I still haven't gotten one.

We had a diversion show up in here, though hopefully it's gone.

Wow, 16 and her 16 month old child was in the car a few feet away?  Quite the specimen.

 

The toddler will be the worst off of all, since she'll likely end up in foster care because of things her stupid bitch of a mother did.

 

Hopefully they charge her with 1st degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon (her BF's hand being shot) as well as child endangerment.
