Kudo'd.
I guess I should finally sign up for "Unlocked" since they claim I don't have it yet. Signed up for the mag in September, but I must have signed up before they introduced Unlocked, though I vaguely remember it. Thanks for the response.

call em 1-800-678-3643, hopefully you used your RZ card for the transaction so you can look it up on the RZ site. If you did it in time to be unlocked then they'll credit you & increase your sub accordingly.

At this point there's no reason not to be unlocked unless there's not a BB in your area and/or tax in your state is outrageous. But for all others if you go game by game, trade by trade, deal by deal BB will beat them all. @Gamer deals can't be beat, coupon packs mean you make your deal your way, GC deals continue to improve & credit deals, RZ points, GC points + pm'ing(60 days) pretty much negate AMZ, walmart & target. & the juggernaut that is gamestop LOL I just pm them & get the RZ points with another chance to pm in the future.

I called the night/day after I went in and they had told me I didn't have Unlocked. Basically ran around CS for an hour or two to no avail. Gave up since I only have ~3 months left on my current magazine anyways. If I recall, I got my sub, and then like a week or two later they announced Unlocked, but I didn't really think anything of complaining at the time. Live and learn...

gotcha, I remember trying to convince people to join & was met with heavy Resistance LOL. Mine expires in Oct. but I got the 1st year free with the coupon & have profitted to no end being unlocked so the $15(which I won't even pay cash for just will use credit) is an investment that would make Gordon Gekko cry grown man tears LOL.

Take advantage of the coins you get for registering the nintendo selects games before 7/1. They all go from 50 points to 20 points values.


Only the two new ones, maybe. I registered soem old ones a while back and they were only 20

Like I said, I jumped on early on for the mag itself. I rarely trade games or buy used, so those are primarily negated. Would have liked some of the coupons though, if I could have.

That sucks man. I joined about a 1-2 months before they announced Unlocked. My next magazine came in with a letter on the front saying to take it up to BB and I would get to join Unlocked for free. I guess you joined a little too close to the conversion or something. They seem slow, because when I had joined unlocked, it took several weeks before it actually showed up on my RZ account.

Damn Sony needs to get more of these titles with cross play out.
As for your coupon if your dealing with a good BB & you don't already have ME3 or Skyrim($35 on sale now).


Thing is, Gravity Rush and MGS come out on Tuesday. Guess I can sit and wait until something else pops up for sale down the line.

Yup, time to PM Max Payne 3 at BB next week. I didn't even play this game - sold it online immediately for $46. Still waiting on the $20 GC, but good to know I'll get $10 back and hopefully another PM soon.

I'm sure this has been discussed in the other thread but could you earn 2 $20 RZ certs if you preordered a game (say black ops II) for BOTH PS3 and Xbox 360?


don't see why not since they are 2 "different" games.

return/rebuy if your BB is cool

BB doesn't consider them different regardless if it's on another system. No different than the restrictions from the 5 for $100 deal.

If you wanna bypass it you'd need to get a 2nd RZ account...(wife, GF, kids)

Ended up not trading my copy of Mercenaries 3D this week as planned.

But, assuming the price stays solid I might do it net week and put it towards Pikmin 2.

Yeah, I used a giftcard as well to pay for mine, so it shows a similar amount. Will Best Buy still price match?

Per the new policy no but still YMMV.

60 days to price match starting 6/18 for RZ silver members.


How do you become a silver member? I just recently became a gamers club member, couldn't resist deals.

You have to spend $2500 in a year at best buy, trade ins have counted for reaching that goal for some people, and some people also got it at only spending $1000.

I actually lucked out and the receipt for Max Payne 3 was in my car which I discovered while grabbing my wallet to go see prometheus today.

Thanks for the info, OP! :D

I definitely want to grab NPC: Pikmin 2 and I'm sure I can find some other $20 Wii or DS game for the deal.

also heard if you sign up for the BB CC and use it for other purchases it all counts towards silver status

If I preorder and get the $20 gift card can I still price adjust after the price drops?

Well this would save me a trip to Fry's for Super Paper Mario and Pikmin 2, same price before tax. I have Lollipop on $45 pre-order so the B1G140% doesn't help me much. Thanks OP.

Too bad I cant come up with anything good for a B1G1 deal. May bite on Pikmin 2 and SMG though

Note on the Nintendo Selects titles - register them before July 1st - They're currently worth 50 coins, afterwards, they're only worth 20.

Not sure how this will effect Pikmin 2 though.
