So it is common for the bonus points to show up after the qualifying purchase does? Will they be listed under the qualifying purchase or as a new line item?


yes in my experience and no, it shows up in the original purchase at least for me.

When they post as pending, you can view them under the purchase of the game at myrz.com

You have to expand the purchase history "+" button on the date you purchased it and at the bottom it will have the special offer pending points shown in orange.

Note that the special offer pending points do NOT show in the pending total by your posted points. They can only be viewed as pending when doing the above.

Again it can take 3-5 days for the special offers to be viewed as pending. Then it can take up to 30-35 days from time of purchase for the pending points to post as usable per the terms of Victory can be Preordered.

Thanks. I know all about the RZ site and points pending, posting and such, but I just wanted clarification as this is the first game I've done under this promotion.

Yes. There's been a large rash of people posting on BBY forums wondering where their points are. Honestly, I talk with a couple BBY mods and feel bad cause they are understaffed and taking time to "research" this issue eats up their time.

Just try to stop the misconception as much as possible

I feel you...and this was supposed to go smoother than the 5/$100 from last year. People just need to be patient. I just wanted to know when/where I should expect to see the bonus points. Maybe they need to take Enuf's advice and issue a $20 GC right when you buy it with a no return stipulation.

The problem with doing that is that the $20 GC will be deducted from the game so future PMs have to be less than $40 to be eligible.

This way, although annoying at times, is simply AMAZING.

While the no return thing sounds good in theory, think of the massive mess it will be when a mom buys the wrong game, someone tries to return it as a gift etc.

And honestly this is much smoother than last year. It also spread out the problem over months instead of telling people "just wait" then all don't get it at the same time and you have to confront 1,000+ people yelling.

I subscribed to GCU in September because I planned on getting the Borderlands 2 CE. It it was sold out and I didn't buy anything until now. Finally got my BLOPSII HE in the mail yesterday so I'm waiting for the 1000 points to post. I will remain patient.

As for the new list I'm definitely getting the Bioshock Infinite CE and The Last of Us. Tomb Raider is a maybe as is Crysis 3. Everything else is a wait and see. Keep it up BestBuy and you'll have my money :)

They must have extended it, because I just printed out a RZ cert this week and it doesn't expire until June.

edit: I'm Silver

Think I will pre-order Dead Island Riptide and The Last of Us at some point for the promo.

Especially if DI is going to retail at $49.99

My points for Black Ops finally posted as pending. Funny thing is I paid for it completely with a gift card and somehow it is taking away 2 points from my 1000 because of it. lol. No big deal, it looks like it is posting as a -5 dollar transaction because of the tax.

Man, I really hope South Park is awesome. The uncertainty of THQ as a company is worrisome.

I paid completely with a gift card and got all the points. It's a bit random.

Can anyone confirm they have received their points from pre-orders of Halo 4 or Black Ops 2? I'm not sure what the normal turnaround time is, but I recall people saying they got their Borderlands 2 points within a week or so.

EDIT: Nevermind. I completely missed the pending points on my account.

Wow....

Bioshock Infinite
Last of Us
God of War: Ascension
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
GTA V

...For me. As far as I can tell that's pretty much every game I want "day 1" for the first half of next year - with one exception - Ni No Kuni.

Just like the last time, this is a great deal if you want a bunch of the games on the list.

For me, it's not worth it. I only think 2 of those games are possibly worthy of day one buys, but with the cost of the unlocked subscription and taxes, doesn't end up being a deal for me on a $ per game basis.

I'm jealous of those who are able to capitalize on this though.

I would strongly advice against preordering Riptide unless you got a bunch of friends or you love co-op with strangers.

The first game was virtually broken when it came to single-player. I had to get a modded gun just to finish it alone.

Has anyone been told if the Collector's Edition of Injustice qualifies for this deal? I'm thinking about preordering this at GS but I'd gladly change my mind if BB was handing out a $20 certificate to go along with it. But the Collector's Edition isn't listed on their website and the gaming department at my local store had zero idea about the promo when I asked. I hate to reserve it and find out I'm not getting my bonus.

Collectors editions work so if you can find the sku to preorder it you're good.

Is the price for Dead Island Riptide correct at $49.99? Amazon also has it at that price.

Yes. The developer (i think) said that games should be cheaper MSRP at this point of the current gen consoles
