Preorder ME3 and receive a $10 eGC with purchase. Or if you are an Gamers Club unlocked member you get a $20 eGC!



http://forums.bestbu...nus/td-p/448605

Works well with next weeks ad of buy any used $29.99 game or above and get a free RZGCU membership.

Here's the stipulations

Pre-order Mass Effect 3, standard or collectors edition for PS3 or Xbox 360, and get a $10 e-gift card$if you are enrolled in the Gamers Club. $If you are an Unlocked member, it's a$$20 e-gift card!
$
$
Pre-orders must be placed between 1/1/12 and 3/5/12 as the game releases 3/6/12. $Purchases must be made by 3/13/12.


Mike (rep for BBY on their forums) updated saying :

"I got some new information guys,

As long as you are a Gamers Club member at the time of purchase, any pre-orders, even those made before this offer was announced, will qualify.

Cheers!"

Nice. I was originally thinking of cancelling my ME3 CE order from them since with tax it would be close to 90. This makes me think I should cancel Amazon pre order instead. I was originally going to keep two (1 for myself, 1 for collecting), but with the way pre orders are going, I highly doubt these will be rare like the earlier ones.

Pretty good deal. Though....i want the CE, and I have a feeling its gonna end up rare (And might get understocked). Gonna keep my PS3 order at Gamestop, might order a 360 copy at Best Buy though. (Seeing as i have ME2 on PS3, and ME1 and 2 on 360)

That's one way of at least getting me to consider buying it day one rather than waiting for the price drop.

With my luck there won't be a used game I would pay $30.

What the hell. I preordered 2 months ago when the CE was $69 online. Hopefully they email me the gift card credit anyways since it may just notify all preorders regardless of reservation date.

Either way good deal for anybody looking forward to this. ME 3 is the only big title im looking forward to in the first half of the year.

Anyone see the T&C? Is it one per account or up to three like they used to allow with the RZ certificates?

I guess this means I need to cancel the preorder I already have with them and reorder since it needs too be between 1/1-3/13 and I preordered in Sept :)

awesome, but how can we take advantage of this. Will wait to see what the BB forum says, there is no confirmation anywhere on the website.

Not for the PC? Guess I'll be sticking with Amazon for now.

I would jump on this but i already paid off my CE at GS with trade in credit. Great deal from BB nonetheless. Still keeping my fingers crossed for a Vita promo soon.

Same question. This beats Amazon hands-down, but don't yet see how I can get me a nice $20 eGC. Hopefully it'll show up on the product page soon.

I'm def doing this and since I already have credit there I'm just saving 20$ in credits. Sweet!

It says purchases must be made before 3/13/2012 so they won't issue the gift card until the item has been paid for in full.

Just a quick question: how much does it cost to get the GZ unlock? I traded in a bunch of a games about 5 months ago, the guy mentioned it and I said I didn't want it but later on when I was looking at the receipt I saw a $9.99 charge so I figured he tacked it on but as far as I can tell it's not showing up when I log in.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

This. I'm also assuming you won't get it for about a month when you can't return the game.

Hmmm... I have a pre-order at a store, though I'm considering canceling and ordering for store pickup for BB.com. (my store has a gaggle of idiots in it and they handle online orders MUCH better). I may wait a few days until this is on the website.

It's 14.99/year, so I don't know what the 9.99 would be unless there was a discount. If you signed up, you would have to give them your address and you would be receiving the @gamer magazine.

I was thinking of canceling my BBY preorder but I would definitely pick it up with this deal. I've had the CE preordered for a few months so I might have to cancel and preorder. I'll wait for more info before I do anything, thanks for the heads up OP.

Well still no official promo on the RZ or BBY website for these GCs. I do not doubt it exists but I would really like something official so i am not arguing with a rep that it is an actual promotion.
