When you buy halo, a 12 month subscription you get 800 microsoft points. I pre-ordered halo and i talked to the best buy reps and apparently when you pick up the game you can just buy the bundle there. It's a pretty good deal if you need the xbox live card.

update: I talked to several reps and confirmed that it doesn't affect your pre order rz certificate. That was a pre-order bonus if you, so as long is that is the case you get everything. Posted Image

It SHOULD work with preorders.
Why should just anybody who wanders into the store get more than someone who has preordered a game with that store. I plan on getting the half off the strategy guide when I go to BB in a little while, and that better work as well.
I'll be pretty pissed off if I'm there to pick up $450 worth of Halo 4 items and can't get the same deal as some guy who wanders in off the street to pick up just the Vanilla version.

Debating if I should grab one of these or not, I have the limited edition ordered so hopefully it works with that.

So I assume the way this works is you hand them your preorder and 13 month card and it should ring up at $99.98 and then a code will either generated or emailed to you for the 800 points?

I do worry how this would effect the price match since this now essentially becomes a package deal.

So has anyone gotten this to work with the reward zone deal for an additional 800 points?

I'd also be concerned about how it would effect the $20 RZ cert.

I think price matching could be a problem.

Well how does it ring out? If it still has Halo 4 as 59.99 then your PM ability should be fine.

Personally, i think im going to try to PM newegg. I have their email where it says buy Halo 4, get XBL for $30 which is where i expect black friday prices to be. I'll still get my $20 pre-order cert bonus on Halo 4 and have the ability to PM it later.


edit: Went in and got this. Bestbuy matched my email no problem.

I'm getting mine later on, but from what the best buy rep told me it means that when you pick up the game and each thing is individually charged and you get the 800 points free, so i don't think it would interfere in price matching.

Please let us know how it rings up. If Halo 4 still shows as $59.99, it will allow for future price matching. If the discount is taken off the game price, it might screw that up.

also if you're looking in to buying a phone if you buy halo today and register you get a $25 dollar gift card. trigger sku for best buy mobile 7030685. if you buy a phone from November 8 to December 31 you get a $25 dollar gift card. I was looking at phones so it's perfect. #winning

Thanks. How are the points put on? Do you need to print a voucher from the preorder kiosk?

It's on the receipt when you buy it and they email you the code also.

Like I posted in the other BB thread, I tried combining that GCU offer for a free 800 pts if you buy a 12 month card and the cashier said she couldnt do it cause the sku for the Halo 12 month card isnt listed under the offer.

Will the Halo 4 Skus be the same from store to store? I bought Halo last night at Gamestop but would love to get in on this deal but only if i could return the unopened copy from Best Buy back to Gamestop.

I tried to do this with a pre-ordered Halo L.E.. Used my receipt from pre-order and had them scan the Xbox Live Special Edition Halo 4 card and no discount was taken off (up to the final step). I complained that the ad just said Halo 4 and they gave me $20 off the limited edition. I didn't fight for the comparable of $10 for the 800 points, because I wasn't 100% sure why the deal wasn't working. So....paid $140 for l.e. and the live card.

I can confirm. Got halo 4 and 13 month and 800 ms points yesterday for $100 (still waiting for rz). Went in today and priced match frys down to 50. Hopefully that doesn't mess up my rz points. But the receipt charge 60 for game, 40 for Xbox live, and 0 for ms points
