I tried to pre-order the premium a few weeks ago and they told me they had a cap of 25 pre-orders for each system and they got that cap months ago.

Can get lucky and someone won't pick it up.

I'm just surprised Amazon still has the Premium for pre-order. If I can't find one on Tuesday then I will just order from Amazon.

Anyone know if Bioshock Infinite Special Edition will be on the floor, or is it only preorder? I wasn't able to preorder one because all the preorder cards were gone. Only preordered through the preorder vending machine..


it will be on the floor if you work at one of the many bestbuys where they have no idea what they're doing and just put everything out

newegg still has it. I doubt it will be hard to find

I got a $20 reward certificate in an email over night. I assume it was from my Tomb Raider preorder. Wish I had received it 2 days earlier. Could have used it towards Gears of War. I'll just use it towards Bioshock.

So my Gamers Club membership ends 2 days after BioShock releases. Any chance BB screws me out of my $20?

No, the membership benefit applies to purchase/pre-order dates not release dates.

Ao I emailed CS about Crysis 3 and MGSR and they said the purchase was there but no points awarded so they had to manually add them :|

along with the washer/dryer I bought same day. basically almost lost 3880 points

and looking at my history I was supposed to get some spring cert. but nothing yet. hmmm

Indeed. I figured it was more limited than other 'Premium Editions' because of some stores stopping preorders.

can we put some info about the missing points issue explanation in the OP? Not sure how many read the OP but some members don't keep up with the threads and their issues have been addressed already before (about not calling in to CS and just waiting to see points post).

There was clearly an issue with MGR, Cyrsis 3 and Tomb Raider points not posting because there has been several reports of the reward zone help line telling people they wouldnt get their points because they used giftcards/certs.

They werent just going to magically appear. Seems like its a pretty known issue now and people have had to call in to get their points.

I used $15 worth of certs on my TR pre-order and the 1000 points have been pending for awhile now and I believe they will post soon since I have RZ Premier Silver. While I do agree that some people are having issues I personally have never had an issue with this promotion and and have used a combination of certs/gift cards with my purchases several times.

For whatever reason, MGR and Tomb Raider were messed up because I used a gift card and after I was done, he told me that it was good a called because since something was messed up it was never going to post anyways.

Really, to me, if the purchase as cleared and you didn't get the promo points id call. How many cases are there of people getting their promo points a few weeks after their purchase cleared?

It happened to me with Dead Space 3.

This x 100.

I've preordered nearly every single game eligible for the $20 promo for the last 2 years. I've never had to call into CS once. I've just been patient. No stress no hassle. Points haven't showed up before but I waited and they "magically" appeared.

Not every CS rep is going to know how the GCU program works and it's customer service RZ interface issues. Frankly, I'm more knowledgable than the average CS rep so I've never been duped by them either.

In the end, no harm was done. The issue was fixed, everyone was happy :D

I never had any issue last year, and I pre-orded, CoD, ACIII, RE6, and Dishonored. Dead Space 3 was fine for me as well. For whatever reason, MGS and TR were not. God of War is though.

Called about Crysis today. The actual purchase isn't showing in my account, nor are the 1000 points. CS rep couldn't figure it out, filed a claim and told he it'll take 7 days to figure it out. Lame.

My GOW:A bonus points cleared today. Good to see bonus points are clearing fairly fast now - not sure if it has to do with being Silver status or not, but I'll take it either way.

I am not a silver member anymore and everything is clearing fairly quickly for me now. My GOW: A points also cleared today.

I complained about my metal gear rising and crysis 3 points not showing up, even the regular points aren't there. All the points for that day aren't there. They could see the purchase but they said I was correct that I wasn't awarded points for it.

they told me they submitted a ticket and they would get back to me in 1-2 weeks?? :shock:

Anybody know how long it takes to receive games in the mail? I preordered Bioshock for shipping and its the first game I'm having shipped after losing my Silver status. When I was Silver I'd receive games on Wednesday, now that I'm back to core I was wondering if anyone knew how much longer it would take to get to me.

Best Buy shipped my games via UPS Mail Innovation when I was a regular RZ member. I usually get them on Thursday and Friday the latest. I get them on release day now due to Silver. :D

I got metal gear rising the Saturday after release day because of the slow UPS innovations which uses USPS for local delivery. And it shipped out the Friday before release date from Tennessee to Cali.

Has anyone's Rewards points showed up as pending or anything for Gears Judgment? This is the first BB pre-order I did by mail so I don't know if the points take longer to show up.

I know it has to take 30 days to clear, but I was expecting it to at least show up as pending.

Finally went ahead and Pre-ordered Infinite for PS3. Couldn't decide whether to get it for PS3 or PC especially with the amazing PC deals but ending up choosing console since I prefer it.

no nothing has shown up for Gears of War and I pre-ordered in store, seems like it is now actually taking the full 5 days to show up instead of taking up to 5 days, but points will still post after the same 30 days

Interesting. My Gears PO is pending but i got the fb 500 point promo and not the GCU 1k. Hopefully it will show up late like the last two and i get 1500 points for the transaction.

Ok, thanks. I thought I used to see the points pending sooner. I was surprised I got the 500 FB points from the transaction faster than the Unlocked points.

Finally got BB to PM Fry's price on Bioshock Infinite. Third times the charms. Never order via phone so hopefully she didn't mess any thing up and I'll still get the 1000 points for preordering.

Went to BB to trade in Tomb Raider and realized my Unlocked ran out. Looks like I'll have to cancel and re-order Bioshock. Hopefully there's no problems with the RZ certs coming back.
