I preordered online at 9:41pm for store pickup, and I haven't gotten anything about it being ready for pickup. Can I still go up there and get it at midnight if I print the receipt out?

Yes, the coupon he is talking about is one of four that comes in the Welcome Packet. It usually takes 6-8 weeks to arrive.

Although lame...I still think I got the best swag when I preordered a month ago:

iPhone 4 case and baseball cap.

I don't even think this was on the list of eligible giveaway swag, but rather employee exclusive swag that the game guy have me since he's always the one dealing with me.

Got to play on an 80 inch projector in the magnolia theatre section of black ops 2 zombies. Also played multiplayer on an LG 3D tv.

  • Gamer Grub branded snacks
  • black ops 2 poster
After all said and done, 5 minutes after I walked out of best buy I got my $50 offer and $25 offer from Amex for doing the halo 4 promo. Overall great night for me. Posted Image

But...i think people say your point total goes into the negatives. I like your thinking, however.

Trying to figure out why I preordered this...

Me and my buddy get to my BB (Springfield, MO) at 11:15pm and the line is already fairly long. We are told by the greeter that preorders are to go straight to the regular checkout stations. I think, "Good, we don't have to wait in that line."

...I'm wrong.

We have to wait in the FIRST line (which isn't very long) to (I guess) verify our preorders. My buddy's CSR tells him she doesn't know how to do online preorders (then why are you working tonight?). I show my order number and the CSR verifies and prints my physical receipt to pick up my copy. Then my buddy goes to the same CSR and gets his as well. Meanwhile, the other line has gotten massive in the last 10 minutes. We move further with our receipts and are back at the main entrance. At this point, the main greeter tells us that we are now supposed to go to the back of the main line (non preorders)...

WHAT?!

Why preorder then? Why is there ONE LINE to get your copy of the game? I would think that there would be two lines, where at the end of each you get your copy. One for preorders, one for non-preorders. Why there weren't copies of the game at the end of the first line we had to wait in is beyond me. We are currently in a line that's snaking all throughout the BB store. And by preordering, are now ridiculously further back than we would have been.

I realize that this release night would be busy either way, but not separating the lines makes zero sense to me. And to have to wait LONGER makes even less sense. Anyone else experience this?

I'll also add that I'm GCU Unlocked so I get the $20 RZ...but what if I wasn't? Guy in front of me thought it would at least be worth it for the Nuketown 2025 map but turns out everyone gets it as more of an "early adopter" perk than a preorder bonus. Codes are in the case.

Yeah they were, I had a guy standing in front of me who won that and the guy behind me won the Fus1on controller. I only got a hulu plus 1 month subscription card. :cry:

Another guy in front of him won black ops branded ear-buds.
Guy in front of me won the turtle beach headset.
I won hulu plus 1 month sub.
Guy Behind me won Fus1ion controller.

The funny thing is there was a handful of big prizes and majority of the big prizes went to the 3 guys around me. Either I just have bad luck or I give good luck to people around me. :drool: The other big prize was a hardened edition 360 copy which went to someone in the middle of the line. The line was also pretty big so I'm kind of happy I got at least something for free out of the raffle. I already got tons of swag from target earlier anyways.

I haven't played my copy yet cause I'm hungry and tired right now. But from what I have played of zombies it was fun, the multiplayer plays like any other COD (I notice most of the maps are small like nuketownish but don't know if it was pure luck of the map rotations I played).

Statically u are 'lucky' you won something (ran above expected value; usually u wont win shit), prob an anomaly that the ppl won around u is all.

As far as being in that situation, I'd be annoyed just bc I'd prob feel entitled even if I know I wasn't mathematically lol
