What does SD stand for? I don't see any games in the promo that have S and D as initials. And Target starts with T.

I'm sorry dude because I probably shouldn't have mentioned it here because it was not part of the promo.

Got carried away with the whole PM thing. My apologies.

You could do it all at once but it might annoy a worker, also depends on how much time you want to deal with them at once.


Thanks, this is what I figured. I'll try to judge their willingness after getting that $10 pricematch before attempting for the $10 in-store pickup code; if they sound annoyed I'll just make a second call.

Would be awkward to end up talking to the same rep, though. Maybe I'll space it out a little.

So I'm at Best Buy looking for some Skylanders for my son, and while I'm there I slide over to the "Buy 1 Game Get 1 Free" sign they had up (store special). It was a bunch of older stuff, but while I'm standing there a sales associate with a clipboard approached me and asked if I needed help. I told him no thanks, that I'm just looking, and he begins to tell me about the Gamer's Club Unlocked $20 Promo. I tell him that I already pre-ordered Halo 4 and Black Ops 2. He then "informs" me that despite what I might have been told, I will only receive 1 $20.00 certificate even though I ordered 2 games. I told him that I was pretty sure that wasn't the case, I even showed him the ad on the pre-order kiosk that said 1 certificate per member PER TITLE, but he wasn't getting it. He told me that another customer came in and pre-ordered 7 games. He said that if Best Buy gave him $20 back for each game, that would be like 200 bucks and that "Best Buy would probably go out of business". Unreal.

So I am new to this Best Buy price match thing. Does anyone mind explaining it to me?

I pre-ordered Madden 13 in-store for $5 on 6/12/2012.
I picked up Madden 13 in-store on 8/28/2012

So do I call Best Buy or do I have to go to Best Buy to get the Target price match?

chris00cm, you have to go into the store. Bring the ad or a printout for speed.

Yes, you absolutely will get the $20 cert. Doesn't matter how you paid for it. Just matters that you preordered and then picked up within 7 days of street date (so 9/4 on this one) and were an Unlocked member at time of pick up.


Thanks. I thought that I would but wanted to make sure.

I'm not sure why, but I'm really tempted to preorder RE6. I'm probably the one RE fan (though I've only played RE4, RE5, and RE:R) who gets more and more hyped with each gameplay video released. But is that such a good idea with Borderlands 2 next week and Dishonored the week after RE6 releases...? I mean, I've got BBY credit to spare, but I wonder if it'll drop to $30 or so come Black Friday. :-k

With the $20 back and the potential to PM I think picking it up would be a good idea. I see this going on sale for at least 50 with all the other games coming out around then.

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.

Somebody said you have to pick up your pre-order within 7 days, but my receipt for Borderlands 2 says you must pick it up within 5 days.

Bonus points are there for me, too. As others said, the original points for Madden showed as earned points last week, but the points aren't available for me to use and the total wasn't added to my yearly spending. I had another purchase that day that is the same way.

My Madden points show in the transaction that is not pending. They have not posted to my point total, but they do not show in my pending points either.

The order page on BB.com still loads blank. *shrugs*

So is the delay in the points being posted "normal", or is this an anomaly? Wondering when I'll see usable points from Borderlands 2.

Probably cause no one plans to buy that Smash Bros ripoff.


just because it's a "ripoff" of Smash Bros. doesn't mean it's a bad thing. It's always nice to see other companies try and attempt to make a game similar to Smash Bros. This also will help kill the waiting time for the next smash bros. :)

Man, my rz is all sorts of screwed up. My pending points don't match my transaction log and I'm missing a few transactions to boot. And when I fill in the missing points form, it says those transactions are already on my account. Any activity takes at 48+ hours to reflect on the site and now add this Madden stuff.
