Glad BB came through with a b2g1 since TRU didn't. Too bad I can't use it on Skylanders Giants.

Yes, no way they would give 56.70 for new releases.

Although I did get $56 for mass effect 2 @ GS a few years ago.

Since Medal of Honor warfighter is released on 23rd, can we preorder this and pick it up with other two games to also get the $20 points?

Hmmm, this is a question for all the Best Buy veterans out there (aka Enuf).

I have purchased via the $20 pre-order bonus: Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6, and Dishonored. I would love to price match the B2G1 with those three games, essentially paying $40 per game and getting a $20 RZ cert per game (so $20 per game).

The issue I am encountering with this is the logistics. If I do a return/rebuy I would lose my 1000 points, no? If I tell the store flat out "I don't want to do return/rebuy because of the pre-order bonus" they may flat out deny the price match. Does anyone have some advice for me in regards to this?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I would like to know this as well. Only I got 2 copies of Borderlands, and Dishonored. Would love to PM, but idk how that would work.

This starts on the 21st, so it would make sense that this only applies to new release games after the 21st?

Taking offers on my PS4 20th Anniversary Ed.

You know, when they've had these in the past, they've allowed pre-orders. I hope it works this time so I can pre-order my Wii U launch games!

B2G1 is usually for all games except this one is $59.99 and below, it doesn't matter when it was released. For anyone wondering about games you've already purchased you should be able to just buy the same games with this sale then return them with the old receipt. If you already got the $20 RZ, I don't think there's a way for BBY to get those back. You might even be able to use it on rebuying the games. I know it sounds shady but it's up to you if you wanna go that route.

This sounds smart, but in my case, most of the games I already bought we're using GC's. to rebuy them and return with receipts would end up in me spending $120 in cash, and getting my PM difference back in all GCs, not the cash I just spent.

I don't know if they do this for the preorder points but they could just put your rz account in the negatives. I think this happened once when I returned an Xmas gift after the points already posted.

My issue is the 1000/$20 is still pending for RE6 and Dishonored. If they do not clear by then and I need to return/rebuy I would lose the $20. If I tell the store "can you just price adjust each one down to $40, which is $60 off in total" they may look at me funny and ask me to explain why. If I tell them it's so I don't lose me $20 bonus they will more than likely deny my price match.

You're right. Plus there's AC3, Halo 4, BLOPS 2 back to back to back. These would sit in the backlog.

I wonder if you can do this,

buy 3 pre-order online next week, since they charge full amount when you pre-order online. Which means u can get $60 RZ cert with either: medal of honor, assassin creed III, Far cry 3, or halo 4.

I see they took COD: Blk ops 2 out of the pre-order bonus.

-Forza Horizon
-Borderlands 2
-Dishonored

for $40 a piece sounds good to me.

Hmm, need 2 others to go with Borderlands 2. Dishonored and Sleeping Dogs worth it at essentially $40 a pop or should I find a better third game filler?

Black Ops is still apart of the deal, but my guess is you need to pickup these games by 27th so no deal.

Dishonored definitely.
I wouldn't do Sleeping Dogs because that has an @Gamer coupon this month.

Too bad they put the $59.99 cap on this. I'm already getting Skylanders Giants and the limited edition Forza Horizon so it would have been nice to get a free game out of it.

They will still be able to deduct the 1000 bonus points form your account if you return the game at any time. If you already used the points and don't have enough to cover it your RWZ account will go into a negative balance.
