Just joined Unlocked and my preorders are in for Dead Space and Tomb Raider. :) The certs take about 30 days to get, right? So I'll at least have the cert from Dead Space in time for BioShock Infinite's release date?

Thanks. Should I still do so even though it'd be easier to get a PM with an in-store preorder? You only need to show the receipt from when you picked up the game when PMing, so the CS rep wouldn't know how long ago the preorder was placed and thus you would avoid any issue involving that.


Maybe. I just find it easier to PM online.

Dunno if its been mentioned or if CEs and LEs even count for the $20 promo this time ...

But I saw the MG Rising preorder card hanging on the shelves today and looked at it. It advertised the CE on the back but said it is "Online Only". So if anyone's interested in it from BBY that seems to be the only route.

So I went to BB today and preordered DmC, Dead Island, and GTA V. I got the case for the DI:R preorder, but I asked about the poster with GTA V and the employee told me they didn't have any and that they would probably show up closer to release.

I searched through this thread and maybe found one person who said they got their poster. I was just wondering if others have already got their poster. I got the little preorder card thing that's about the size of a game. Please tell me that's not a "poster".

Did anyone preorder God of War LE/CE in store yet? I search the kiosk they had but couldn't find it. I know it's available online with store pick up but don't feel like paying for the whole thing up front.

Also if I show the cashier the SKU# will I be able to preorder it that way? I want to preorder early before they pull it for the LE/CE.

If its not at the kiosk at your store it might have been pulled already.

I'm pretty sure I saw it in the kiosk back when it was first announced. It's weird, my store also has the Bioshock Songbird and other CE pulled but it's still online.

Songbird is not sold out at BBY it seems, online. Thanks for mentioning it.

I don't have a local Best Buy and the closest one to me is about 2 hours away. I was able to join Reward Zone online and use it for my online purchases but it seems I can't sign up for unlocked online. It tells me to print a page and take it into the store. :(

Is there any way around this? I doubt there is but couldn't hurt to ask.

Looks like the big money CEs are online only, which is an actual sound business decision. Great job Best Buy! You're getting the hang of this now! :applause:

Yes the posters were at the store a while ago (november I think) and that little card is not the poster. Either they are out, never received them, or my best bet the employee was clueless as to their location in the store. When I went to preorder mine they had to go into the back to get the posters and a box full of the picture viewers.

Unlocked can only be signed up for in store.

You can only sign up for Unlocked in-store.

Good for best buy but not for those of us hoping to score a CE on clearance now. :-#

I'm with you on that regarding CEs at BB. I rarely even see them around anymore... and they will often not get any in on launch day.

I'd suggest pre-ordering all the games in-store using a GC on 1 receipt(even on games you don't want to avoid the "If I new ___ was gonna be on sale for $40 I would've done the BB $20 deal".

DON'T WORRY ABOUT TRYIN TO GET THE $5 BACK WHEN PICKING UP THE GAMES UNTIL AFTER ALL THE THE TITLES HAVE BEEN ACCOUNTED FOR.

You won't lose the $60 pre-orders no matter how long it goes & since it's a GC it'll be easy for CS to refund down the line. And if won't effect the $20 pre-order since u have still met all the requirements needed. I personally haven't used the $5 for any pre-order in 2 yrs & being silver the points post in about 2 weeks.

Also, for non-silver members u can reach silver status by spending $1500 in back to back yrs or use the pre-paid visa method which only cost $77.35 in fees(13 cards total).

My BB still doesn't have the Tomb Raider cards out. :(

I wish they'd add some WiiU titles to the promo. (more specifically, Pikmin & Rayman)

Can I use my RZ certs that expire on like 3/2 and 3/14 right now to pre-order games that don't come out until a couple of days later and still have them count?

I place all my orders online for instore pickup. Although for some weird reason they didn't have the 360 version of Dead Space 3 available for preorder on the website until just recently.

I'm think the new system doesn't allow for one to use RZ certs to preorder anymore.

Do they add additional games, or is this going to be it? I'm hoping to see a good pre-order deal for MLB The Show '13 somewhere.

I don't think they have the past two years. I'd love to see The Show added too, but I don't think it will be.

I think I'm one of the few people who isn't going crazy for GTAV. Everytime I've picked up a GTA game, I play maybe 4 or 5 story missions, then spend 2 weeks driving around running over hookers until I get bored of the game. I don't think I've ever gotten off the first island in ANY GTA game, and I've played them all. Going to be picking up Revengeance and Bioshock (and maybe Last of Us) with the promo though. A couple others I want, but I can wait for a price drop on the rest. On a separate note, did Revengeance have preorder DLC at one point? I could have sworn I read something about it, but theres no mention on the BB site.

I am like this too. I've played all of the GTA games before, but never stuck with an open world game for more than a couple of hours until Saints Row 3. I'm waiting to see more of GTA5 before making a decision.
