My farcry 3 points are pending now too

Funny thing is they a pending under the pricematch transaction and not the original transaction

Does anybody know if RZ certificates can still be used for a Visa Prepaid debit card like last year, Im wondering this because Im thinking about upgrading me and my mothers phones to ipohnes and both phones would come with 100 dollars in certificates

Killer deal too BB is basically paying me 50 dollars to upgrade to an Iphone 4s so Im thinking why the hell not

Enuf stated that BB no longer allows this. The system does not allow it as a form of payment for PP Visas.

Well, the transaction in which I bought Far Cry 3 and the preorder bonus is pending now, but no 1000 points. I know that's not enough to conclude they won't appear, but based on what I went through for that transaction, I think I'm going to PM a BBY forums mod.

I think they botched my pre-order with a manual override. My points still have not shown up on the transaction on myrewardzone.com and it looks like they sold me the "preorder bonus" instead of ringing up the actual pre-order. You know for BB having been doing these pre-orders for a while now you'd think they would have ironed out these details by now.

My Far Cry 3 points have cleared - every transaction went smoothly for me with the 2012 promo, can't wait to do it again in 2013. I'll have that next gen Xbox paid for with all RZ certificates!

So I bought Hitman absolution for $60 with the $20gc 2 weeks ago. It's 39.99 now at GS and amazon, can I go back in store and get $20 back?

This is still a good program (I'm not putting it down or anything), but I don't think I'll be taking part in it next year. I was only able to get Assasin's Creed 3 price matched, and even that required a hassle. Although paying $40 for Borderlands 2 didn't bother me, the $40 copy of Dishonored sitting next to my whale oil lamp seems like such a waste.

By the time I'd get around to playing South Park, Bioshock Infinite, or The Last of Us they'll certainly be cheaper than $40.

:shock: Um...wow...I'm totally and utterly speechless right now.

Someone managing myrz.com must be on the ball, because I now have the 1000 points from FC3 pending, even though I was sure that transaction wasn't processed correctly.

That's pretty awesome. \\:D/

This really is the best program if you're able to play the games you get immediately or soon after you pick them up; to that end, I think I'll be a bit choosier with my preorders for next year (for instance, I think I can wait for Dead Space 3 to drop, but I'm picking up The Last of Us DAY-ONE, son ;)).

I would call up Best Buy about that and then have a talk with your store, there's no reason why any of your matches should have been a problem.

I bought all of the games from the 2012 promo and was able to price match all of them down to $40 (i have silver status and did all my PMs over the phone because I did in-store pickup or had it shipped to home).

YMMV. The original transaction shows up as a bundle. A lot of people have already tried and most have reported that the store will ask for the GC back.

Did anyone get a $10 RZ certificate in the mail? I got one in my account online and just got one in the mail.

Edit: nvm just tried to use and says its been redeemed so it must be the same one from the one you got in your account online

Do you need silver status to pm over the phone?

Also, does anyone know if this deal is good for limited editions? Looking to get the songbird version of bioshock.

I wasn't very clear, the hassle wasn't the store's fault. I tried to have them price match K-mart(?) on the day I picked it up, and there was an issue with the system not giving me back the $5 I already put down nor was it pricematching correctly. They eventually just called over a manager and did a price override to mark it down to $45.

Of course, if the game had dropped again I was going to have a hard time explaining that they should give me back $5 more than the actual difference since I paid $50 and not the $45 indicated on the receipt.

Awesome...$10 back for Black Ops and $20 back for FC3.

Can someone tell me exactly how to do a "post-purchase" price match at BBY from another retailer?

I've done several where I match BBY's current price, but never have gotten them to match another competitor price with a game I bought FROM BBY.

I just don't want them to take back any of my certs, etc.

Thanks for the heads up. Good thing I didn't throw away the GC I used since I'm PM'ing over the phone.
