I just got an e-mail from Toysrus about this promo and is exclusive to RewardsRUs members only. Should be good till Saturday as the e-mail didn't say Tuesday only on it.

Sorry I don't have a link to back this up as this is not on their site unless I missed something.

Wish there was a way to PM this at Best Buy, but they don't do bundles/free items.

Very YMMV on this but at least they're trying but my guess is if they did it how'd they ring it up would ruin your chance for a Max Payne price match down the line which would be better. Your going end up getting at least $20 back on the purchase from a price match to go along with the $20 BB gc either of which would net you the 1600 MS points.

Yeah that is true. I just hope it goes on sale somewhere for $40 within 45 days after I pick it up.

make sure you actually pickup the game as late in the week as possible since getting it on fri/sat actually means you get another week of ads that you could potentially price match from & fully expand your pm window. Honestly, at this point in the system lifecycle there's not going to be any games that don't hit $40 w/i 45 days(well maybe the obscure titles). If skyrim & COD do it & they sell the most why would any other company have a reason not too.

Yeah that is my thought as well. Most games hit $40. My plan is to leave the game sealed and return it on day 44 if no $40 price is reached.

What is the proper day to pick it up again? The details say you need to pick it up by May 21st, but I am thinking getting it May 20th to be safe.

Getting it on the 19th will max out your 45 day pm window.

game releases on tues 15 & must be p/u'd w/i 5 days of release. There may be errors on the dates but that's how all the other BB pre-order deals work for release week so I wouldn't chance it since that would negate the $20 gc altogether. And I doubt the extra would matter since that week of sales would already be in effect in 42 days anyways.

I always forget to factor in the "extra" 15 days. I was doing the math for 30 days (so Sunday to Sunday), but since it's 2 weeks+1 day that would make it Sat+1=Sunday+6 weeks (approx).

Thanks for the info. Would be awesome to get MP3 for $20 on release.

This might sound dumb but will my rewards account ever expire? I think the last thing I bought was Red Dead Redemption when it came out.

I keep saying I'm gonna make a BB price matching thread since the way I do it can be easily copied & most people don't have the dedication to keep getting that extra $10-$20 it would make it very easy to follow.

Seems the Max Payne offer is different in regards to the details unless I missed something. You'd want to it up on the 20th/21st to get an extra week of ads for PM possibilities.:

To qualify for this offer, you must be a Reward Zone program Gamers Club member, 17 or older, at time of game pickup or shipment. Game must be pre-ordered by 5/14/12. Purchase your pre-order as follows: (1) If you pre-order the game for PS3 or Xbox 360 in-store or online for In-Store Pick Up, purchase and pick up by 5/21/12; (2) if you pre-order the game for PC in-store or online for In-Store Pick Up, purchase and pick up by 6/4/12; (3) if you pre-order the game for PS3 or Xbox 360 online for ship to home, pre-order will be processed and shipped on or about 5/15/12; or (4) if you pre-order the game for PC online for ship to home, pre-order will be processed and shipped on or about 5/29/12. Please provide member number at time of pre-order and pickup. Qualified Reward Zone Gamers Club members will receive a $10 Best Buy gift card; qualified Gamers Club Unlocked members will receive a $20 Best Buy gift card. If you are not a member at time of pre-order, you must become a member by time of game pickup or shipment. If you join on the day of in-store pickup, enrollment must be on the same transaction as game pickup. Limit one gift card per member. Offer valid in Best Buy stores and at BestBuy.com. Gift card will be sent to email address provided at time of pre-order. Gift cards are good for future purchases and subject to terms and conditions. No dealers. No rainchecks.

I'm still on the fence on whether I should get Max Payne 3 or Diablo 3. I would have purchased a XBL points card anyways with the $20 GC and don't have a Silver RZ account so my PM window is only 30 days. Thanks for the heads up on this deal, boogie4114.

the reason the added day can be used is if your doing in-store p/u. But this won't work for reg. store pre-ordered/purchases waiting will negate the $20 gc.

I suppose it has to be for Xbox to get the 1600 points card? Sucks if there's no deal for the PS3 version.

Why would waiting till the 20th/21st to pick up the game negate the $20 giftcard when it's stated that you'll still be eligible if you do so?

*edit
If possible could we continue our discussion in the Best Buy Max Payne thread?

Are deals like this usually only one per Rewards account or should I be able to pick up my buddy a copy and get a free card for him too?

Is this given out in store? The last RewardsRUs thing I tried was for the free Skylanders with $100 purchase that was supposed to be emailed within 3 weeks and I never got jack. Ended up returning it all because Dr. Shaq them.

Same. I have a TRU gift card that I want to use, so this would be a pretty decent offer.

At this point its a pretty sweet deal. Because just about every game drops to at least $40 within 30 or 45 (for silver) days of release you get the game you want at basically $40 at launch or in this case and ME3 $20 because they also had a $20 e-gift card as well. Its a much better deal once you have some credit built up so you don't have to lay down cash when getting games but keeping a consistent flow of credit incoming is a whole different discussion.

My local Us R Idiots didn't know about the game. They also apparently didn't have it in. I asked her to check the stockroom, since this has happened to me before, but she didn't find it there either.

Not surprisingly, she had no idea about the offer. She didn't see any signs on the shelves about it. She did ask the manager, but he seemed about as clueless.

Hopefully this'll work in your area, it didn't in mine.

EDIT: Other stores in my area (but not close enough) had the game and knew about the deal. I even called TRU Customer Service, and they confirmed that my store is the only one in miles that doesn't have the game.

Got the game before work today. They didn't have it out on the floor but the sales rep got it from the back. He had no idea about the deal and they only had a couple of 1600 point cards left, but it went through with no issues.
