I know you can use them towards a prepaid Visa and a Kindle card but another BBY gc is a no go.


So can you use gift cards and RZ cert for Visa PP card?

Yep. Great way to convert extra trade credit to cash...costs $5.95 to activate and $200 limit. I only found out about the RZ cert because I was using it while buying some games with a visa but the computer applied part of the cert to the visa card.

I read online you couldn't use trade in gift card or RZ cert. Guess I'll give it a shot. Only game I'm interested is Black Ops 2 so might turn 70 credit into 64 cash.

Despite the reviews and my uncertainty I decided to pick up RE6, figured I'd atleast make my money back after certificate, price match & trade in.

Thought I didn't notice until I picked it up that the guy put my pre-order down as 360 and not PS3. Had to go back in and exchange it for the ps3 version. Hopefully it doesn't mess with my certificates, otherwise I guess I will have to call or contact my personal shopper thing.

Also, if anybody wants a 360 pre-order bonus code then PM me. Don't really care about it and obviously can't use it as I don't have my 360 anymore.

yup been there done that as said before... clicked it and only showed 223 for it.

That's what it says in the fine print must be picked up within 7 days maybe you could get the manager to override and give you $20 back but that would be ymmv if they read the fine print in the promo

So now that I'm a Premier Silver member, I'm considering preordering ACIII and Far Cry 3 (both :ps3:) since there's next-to-no chance of both titles not dropping at least $20 within two months given that they're Ubisoft games.

Anyone think I should go ahead and just preorder them?

I'm hopeful mine will come soon (I pre-ordered in July) - when I called BB yesterday, the CSR said they had run out, but were expecting more within 48 hours. I'm assuming when I pre-ordered the game had no bearing on the order in which I receive my code.

Still haven't gotten my Madden $20 promo. Just heard from a representative that it does not appear as a pre-order in their system.... despite the order history showing that the order was placed on the 16th of August..... sometimes I wish these representatives would think before responding and dismissing customer inquires.

Definitely lowering my expectations for the Borderlands pre-order bonus to go through.

That might be a problem as it didn't show up as a pre-order. Not sure how that would have happened if you ordered on 8/16.

However, you should be able to get some satisfaction because it should have posted by now (been about 5 weeks since release day 8/28) and you have an order on the books.

Same thing happened to me with Borderlands. I posted on the forums, and Mike said that since in my case the return of the wrong preorder and sale of the right game happened on two separate transactions the points wouldn't apply automatically. He simply added the 1000 points for me though no trouble.

So my advice would be to watch your transaction history and this thread. When you see people posting that they see/received their RE6 points look to see if you got them too. If you don't, post on the forums and it'll get fixed for you.

My pre-order for dishonored has shipped, along with the whale oil lamp(I guess BB didn't run out of them cause I just pre-ordered yesterday).

Just keep watching for Best Buy to announce there holiday return policy. Everybody will get an extended time to price match also just like last year.

Got my DLC codes for NBA2K13 and RE6 finally. I'm broke down and sent a PM on the forums so I'm pretty sure that spurred it, just like it did with Borderlands 2, in case anybody is still waiting.

I was in yesterday and the BBY Rep told me the game was already in the back of the store. Not that it has anything to do with stock but I was just surprised the game was already there. The temptation to play early would be too great for me. :)

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
