This was posted over on SD, Thanks to dweiss


1) You need to be part of the Best Buy Reward Zone program -- if you aren't, join (it is free).
2) Login to your account at www.myrz.com
3) One of the cycling promotions on the login homepage should be one for GameFly.
4) Following the ad, signup for a free 14-day GameFly trial (yes, new GameFly members only). You do need to give your credit card info here.
5) When signup is completed, you'll get an e-mail notifying you that you'll be receiving 600 Best Buy points (enough for more than $10 for Best Buy) in 6-8 weeks.
6) Cancel your GameFly account.


Start your GameFly 15-day free trial and get 600 Reward Zone points. Plus, earn 100 more points for each of the first six months you remain a subscriber, for up to 1,200 total points.

Does it say you have to sign up, or just a trial? Because they will revoke your points. I returned a TV to them (found it $1000 (!) cheaper on Amazon) and they canceled the $60 RZ gift card they had for me.

Nice find. I wish I hadn't already done a trial with GameFly. :(

Just a trial for the 600 points, then if you keep your membership, you'll get 100 points each month for 6 months= 1200 total points.

But gamefly is mediocre at best... I'm not sure I want to do that :-( First month is free? I signed up for few months, but I can use a different e-mail and CC. Hmmm, I might use it again to get some cheap platinum trophies.

how quickly did the points show up? I just signed up but the points haven't shown up in my RZ account yet.

Nothing better than being paid to receive free stuff. It's like a CAGers wet dream...

Mine showed up as pending right after I signed up.

Is 14 days long enough to actually get a game from Gamefly? I wouldn't mind trying it out to see if Blazblue is worth playing or not.

just signed up. here's hopin' it works. I haven't gotten an e-mail yet about the points.

Question - how do you see "pending" points in your account? I don't see a section for that - only purchase history and points via partners...

So has everyone been having this show up immediately in their points/purchases section?

Do you have to use the same email address as the one linked to MyRZ? Since I don't intend to keep the subscription, I'd rather not use my primary email address.

not showing up in pending part, maybe its because i used a different email address? hmmm either way ill wait until a day or 2 before to cancel so this is a no lose situation. free 2 games to rent for 2 weeks!

Remember, while u have to ship them back after you cancel, you can of course take a couple extra days...

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. The site lists the BlazBlue game as Low Availability, so I don't want to wait for 10 days and then end up having to cancel.

Of course, all I'd be losing is a chance to rent while still getting the free $10 BB points.

True CAG mentality.

not pending here either, did it show up immediately for everyone else who got it or did it take an hour or two? i also didn't get a rz email after i signed up

Considering it takes a month for actual purchases to add to your account (to avoid people returning something for free points), it seems unlikely that you'll get these unless you actually stay subscribed for a month. But hey, as soon as someone can confirm they have the points and have canceled, I'll eat my words.

it says you get the points for signing up the trial, not for staying signed up, even tho that gets you more points throughout the year. im sure we are all good for free rentals for 2 weeks and they will give us the $10 worth of rz points. yay for cag, thanx brother daz!

hmmm...which 2 games to get before i cancel? I usually freak out at this type of stuff and cancel ASAP because i don't want to forget later...but i might as well get at least 2 games out of it with my 600 points :)

I'm thinking Clash of the Titans and L4D2 (got like 820 gs..need the last bit to 1000/1000 it) ...anyone suggest another?

I have a backlog as it is, so the 2 games would basically just be more a bit of fun and a possible 2000 more gamerscore for me if i can 100% the games in time ;)

If i recall...did someone say their 600 points were already showing as "pending"?

I ask because i see no record of anything Gamefly related on my point chart on the RZ website. I'm sure it'll take a bit to process, but i recall someone saying theirs showed almost automatically

I'm not too worried if I don't end up getting the points anyway... I'd gladly spend 2 minutes signing up for something I've never intended on using for $10 RZ coupon :D

I thought mine had showed up, I only glanced at it earlier and misread it for another pending charge. My points have not shown up either.

Question: I've bought used games from Gamefly before during their monthly sales, but have never tried their rental service before. Would I still be considered a "New Member"? Thanks!

I never thought about this before, but I just did the promotion, and I was still eligible for the RZ points.

Hop on it, brother!
