I picked my TLoU up on Friday evening, and my 1,000 points show pending as of this morning.

 

On a semi-related note, does anyone else have issues when picking up pre-orders? The last 3  (Bioshock, Tomb, Last of Us) pick up's have had problems in their system. It's been a variety of issues (deposit doesn't come off, can't package in the pre-order bonus, etc) for these titles. I'm wondering if it's the staff or why the system at this store is now always on the fritz, as I didn't use to have any issues. It looks like this time when ringing up TLoU she somehow issued me 2 Sight & Sound bonuses, as I received 2 emails, but only one matches the cash register receipt.

Yup problems galore, I was charged $5 for God of war DLC bonus, but the Gaming rep noticed and price adjusted, and my pre-order deposit was not taken off for Injustice .  I think the process to handle pre-orders in the system may be confusing employees without experience.

I had a horrible experience with almost every game I preordered from Best Buy.

The only one I recall going smoothly was CoD:Black Ops II that I got for my son.

Probably because they had the wrinkles ironed out due to the volume of the midnight release.

 

Before this Best Buy promotion I've never pre-ordered a game but it was worth it for the $20 back, then apply that $20+$40 trade in to the next game.

 

I'm a RZ Silver member so spend plenty there but after this promo will not pre-order from Best Buy again.

Last of Us transaction finally went through on my Rewards Zone account. Need to keep building up certificates for a 2nd PS4 control and hopefully a game. Going to be hard with little left to buy besides Grand Theft Auto. lol

Totally had a terrible experience the cashier tried to charge me 5 bucks for the sights and sounds pack then she cancelled the order and said "sorry now you have no pre-order bonus and no 20 dollar cert" I was so upset I don't think its worth the hassle of fighting with these people anymore.  She also tried to tell me the sights and sounds pack was 5 bucks, sure.

Like some BB didn't have the Survival Edition of the game. After explaining how I was gonna to get 20 in Reward Zones Certs and not other stores having it stock, they'll finally gave me a 20 gift card. Then I have to wait like 30 additional minutes to get them to cancel the preorder? I would have been pissed but I rented the game and already beat it. Now probably gonna wait until it hits 40 to pick up the regular edition. Hopefully soon and by then the trophies glitches should be patched.

Almost always an issue when doing business at my local Best Buy. Either the employee is clueless or Best Buy's computer system isn't working properly. Makes buying and trading games in frustrating at times.

I think they keep changing/tweaking the preorder system which ends up confusing the employees. It's not a problem at my local store because the employees are always up to date and knowledgeable, but sadly that doesn't seem to be the case at most other stores.

Check and make sure one of the codes is not for the full game. I was suppose to get a Sights and Sounds DLC code, which did not appear on my pre-order pick up receipt, and received an email Sunday with a code for the full game!

I hope they extend this promo to upcoming next gen titles this holidays. I'm planning on getting 2 games and those extra $40 would help a lot! I guess we'll find out after the release of gtav.

I am surprised, went to best buy to pick up my preorder of Last of Us and there was no issues with charging for the dlc plus my copy was sitting at customer service. Probably the fastest I have ever been in and out of a best buy ever (less than 5 min).

Since gettinmoney is being a dick for some reason I'll explain it, BB messed up and canceled some peoples survivor edition orders so to make up for it they sent it to them for free.

Sucks they didn't add Saints Row 4

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I would love a pretty hefty bonus for preordering the Xbox One at Best Buy. $100 gift card is what I'm looking for. I mean, it does cost $500.

That thread deserves more kudos. I'm sure hundreds of people preorder at Best Buy through cag alone.

If you guys don't speak up and vote don't complain if the $20 RZ offer stops after GTA V.This is our chance to affect Best Buy's promo for Day 1 releases.

Sorry to derail the momentum, buy how does one renew Unlocked? I was at the CS desk trading Black Ops2 and the girl had no idea. They have eliminated the gaming register at my store. Any help?
