If you pre-ordered RE6, you should receive The Rail Yard Mercenaries DLC (I didn't, I had to call Capcom with my BBY information after multiple calls to BBY) and with Borderlands 2, you get The Premiere Club DLC.


Thanks. I will gather my receipts and make some calls.

inky, you could also PM Gaming-BBY on their forums. It's a bit slower, but far more dependable than calling. Most of those people on the phone have no clue what is what. Personally, when I don't get my preorder DLC, that's what I do (PM Gaming-BBY).

Just picked up Dishonored. Pretty cool lamp. I wonder if its worth rushing though. $27 base value. So basically free rental and free lamp with the $20 promo considering I used a gift card to pay.

I'm only about an hour in and already I can tell that this is a game you will want to play through at least 2 or 3 times. It's gonna be a lot of fun to replay without killing anyone.

Also my DLC finally came in e-mail today and I ordered via the pre-order kiosk in store so hopefully everyone who did that also got theirs!

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

RE: The Rail Yard/RE6 DLC - I PM'd the Gaming BBY and never received a f/u reply (and still haven't). I also sent an email and never received a reply. I called multiple times and was just told to wait. Be prepared to be persistent if you really want them.

I pre-ordered RE6, picked it up and exchanged it for the Anthology version at another store. I don't see any acknowledgement of getting the $20 code, is there a reason why? Should I have the points "pending" in my recent purchase history yet?

Hey thanks a lot man! I found the link a few pages back and used that(also mentioning that there are no 1000 point pending for my Resident Evil 6 Anthology preorder). Curious to see what the mods can do there. Thanks again!

Did anybody else's 1000 points from PO NBA or RE6 just dissapeared from their account? I checked earlier today and saw that I had 1000 points pending and I just checked now and it just dissapeared?

My wife likes the lamp, I got home from work and she already has it lit up and on display on top of the HTPC.

Standard reply time on the forums is 3-5 business days. Sometimes it does take longer - depends on the volume they have to reply to. So yes, just be patient.

Wait you have to be UNLOCKED......

Shit, any way for me to still get credit from RE6 or is it too late?

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

I have all the pre-order bonuses listed for each game in the OP. Just click the name of the game.

That's my plan, although not rushing, but game isn't that long. Getting ready to get into the last mission of my stealth/no kill/no powers run, then I will do the kill everything run. I'll probably be done tomorrow night and if the $27 holds for the next two days that's $43.20 after the 50% trade bonus and 10% unlocked. Plus sold the DLC and lamp, so free game and $20 cert, not bad.

have to say I'm tempted to do this, especially since I am pretty disappointed with gamestop. I need to look into pre-ordering online.

If you are only going to play through the game (Dishonored or RE6) once is the DLC even worth keeping?

I pre-ordered Dishonored Monday night, but have not picked the game up yet. I do not have the pre-order DLC email yet, does this indicate that I won't get it or the $20 credit since I pre-ordered so late or do you have to actually pick the game up to get sent the codes. I rented it for free from redbox to make sure I would enjoy it and love it, but don't want to pay $59.99 for it unless I get the extras. Thanks.

You want the extras for a game you haven't even picked up yet?

You more than likely will not get it since your preordered version was returned.

I just want to make sure I qualify for the $20 credit if I pick the game up, usually you can't pre-order the night before, but this week it was different.

Another 20$ posted, but still no Dishonored DLC.

After pm their gaming department, I got my key. So now I'm hoping for the normal process to send me another key that I can sell on EBay. It might happen LOL

has anyone who pre-ordered and picked up anthology or archives had their 1,000 bonus points show up [pending] yet?

I picked up anthology on release day, and my transaction shows up fine, just no preorder bonus

Nope and many of us have posted on the Bestbuy.com forums and they haven't responded to us. I sort of knew there was going to be a problem when I preordered it online because it wasn't super clear that the promotion applied to it even though the forum moderators on BestBuy.com swore up and down it was. There is clearly a problem as I not only have my Dishonored points pending, but they just posted this morning and I now have a $20 cert ready to use.

I was one of the Anthology buyers and called CS a couple days ago. The lady put a "note" on my account with a claim number. Said if points didn't show up in alloted time, call back up with the claim numer and they should just post the $20 manually.

I mean its clear off my transactions that I preordered it in time. The only thing that may be different in MY case is that I went back that night to PM Anthology and they did some weird process that looks as of they returned my original copy and rerung it up, possibly voiding the promo.

Either way...you can be damn sure I'm getting my $20.

yes, you can preorder the night before. many ppl have done that. if you do not pickup your game. you are not going to receive the $20 and the dlc code.
