I cannot remember but I should be able to preorder MoH in-store tomorrow?


I would assume so. I was able to preorder RE6 the day before release. Just go to the prorder kiosk, print out the preorder slip and bring it to the registers. Don't ask about it simply do it.

Sometimes they take the preorder out of-the system. From what I was originally told the preorder system gets updated Saturday at 8pm EST (I've been there while it updated). With the update it is supposed to take out preorders for the following Sunday/Tuesday releases.

This doesn't take it out of the purchasing system, just out of the preorder kiosk. What I always had them do was, if it was out of the preorder kiosk, find the preorder sku and just enter that. It always accepted it.

Thanks. There should a card with the game art on the floor with the sku.

But doesn't that mean you had to pick up two $60 games today? Or did you buy two sub $60 games and they still resold dishonored as $0?


Neither, I showed them my recepits from BL2, RE6, and Dishonored and they decided to just zero out Dishonored.

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.

Anyone know if Best Buy will PM Gamestop's price for Sleeping Dogs? And if so can I use the $20 certificate + gamer mag coup?

I wish I would've thought of this...would've been a lot less time consuming than rebuying all 3 games like I did, then waiting another day to go back and return them.

You can not stack @gamer coupons with a PM. It is extremely YMMV.

I pre-ordered Assasians creed 3 in like march when they were offering the steel book. This was way before the $20 in reward certs they are offering now. Will I still get the reward certs? Will I have to cancel and reorder? Thanks

They say no but I did anyway. I just returned my pre-order and did a new one to be sure it would work.

Cool, that makes sense. And congrats on scoring a free Dishonored on release day. I thought you encountered some wonderful employee that allows you to buy two sale games and manually zero out your Dishonored.

Mathematically Correct.

Ok, first, Im sorry for asking another BLOPS2 preorder question.

Here is my question. If I preorder the pc version, do I still get the certz?

If I click the link in the reward zone for BLOPS2, it only shows the 360 and ps3 versions.

Thank you

Actually I just checked and none of the games show the pc version. Maybe there is someone who bought the pc version of Blands or dishonored knows the answer

It doesn't apply to PC games IIRC.

Also, I was able to do a price match of Borderlands 2 from Fry's. And for some reason, I'm getting a point deduction? Should I call BB support?

Someone bold for me the portion where they exclude games for price matching online retailers?

I read something two pages back and now I'm confused.

I tried to preorder Halo 4 (regular edition) with in-store pick up today, but it says "unavailable" for all stores within my area. Are they sold out, or can you just not do in-store pick-up for Halo 4?


Sorry to quote myself for the new page, but does anyone know?

Not sure if serious or if too lazy to read other posts.

They do not exclude games, but they leave it out of the PM terms and specifically mention video game hardware leaving it open for employees to say no because it is not included.

You probably could. Give it a shot. And if you already have the 20 cert yeah you can combine it with the coupon. The cert is basically a gc

Is it only 20 points? I believe that's supposed to happen. Every game I PM has gotten that when I PM to $49.99 (10 x 2 thanks to GC/GCU).

I just tried to Pre-Order also for IN STORE pickup and all are Unavailable except ONE store. Weird. I may just have it shipped, but that is weird. Did we wait too long?

Oh okay. It's just when I price match they have never taken points off before.

That's Double Dipping. It is either the Gamer Mag Coupon or the PM. The certificate is a form of payment so it works in combo with either.

Yeah. Occasionally I'll have it not happen too (Persona 4 Arena comes to mind for me), but it's supposed to. As long as it's not 1000, it's right.

If it doesn't, and if you still qualify for the PM/Return period, rebuy with coupon and return with the old receipt.

Well, I just ordered HALO 4 online....could not do the IN-STORE pickup. I did get FREE Expedited shipping though....good enough, saves me a trip to the store I suppose.

Does Best Buy match the prices of Internet retailers?
No. Unless Best Buy is running a test or promotion under this Guarantee that allows for Price Matching Internet retailers, we do not match the prices of Internet-only retailers or the website prices of our local retail competitors' stores. If, however, a local retail competitor has the same or lower price as its online store and the customer can provide verification of the in-store price, Best Buy will match the price (so long as all other price match policy criteria are met).

Is Best Buy currently running any tests or promotions under the Price Match Guarantee?
Yes. Best Buy will match the new, identical, immediately available current pre-tax appliance and electronics hardware products price for these designated major retailers: Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Buy.com, Circuitcity.com, CompUSA.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, hhgregg.com, hp.com, homedepot.com, lowes.com, newegg.com, officedepot.com, officemax.com, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, Tigerdirect.com, and walmart.com. Appliance and electronics hardware products include audio hardware, video hardware, cameras, camcorders, desktop computers, notebook computers, e-Readers, tablets, TVs, MP3 players, small appliances, major appliances, gaming handheld devices and consoles. Best Buy will not price match accessories, during the return and exchange period or the online prices of third party vendors (Marketplace Vendors) on major retailer websites. Valid for purchases made between October 7, 2012 - November 17, 2012 and November 27, 2012 - December 24, 2012. Best Buy may amend these terms at any time. All other terms and conditions of the Best Buy Price Match Guarantee apply. See Store for details.


In other words there is nothing about gaming software, only gaming handheld devices and consoles.
