I used $35 of RZ certificates when I picked my copy up on Wednesday.


How much did you have pre-paid?

So I don't really get it. If I do my usual $5 down, I can't use any of the $20 GC at the time of purchase of the next game?

Follow up Question- How are you guys liking Dead Space 3? I personally feel like it's bittersweet.

You can't use RZ certs on pre-orders when first pre ordering them now. It's pretty dumb, my friend was trying to pre-order crysis 3 with RZ certs last week and we spent like 15 minutes at the register because they couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. Then they finally came to the conclusion that you can't use them.


Looks like that's in-store only because I was just able to use a $5 RZ cert on my Metal Gear Rising pre-order which I did online with in-store pickup.

Just noticed that on my account as well and I know I didn't spend $2500 last year either.

I like it, though I'm only on Chapter 6 (Hard) so far (

). While it's definitely more about tension than scares, I still love how it feels quicker to shoot things, especially with the dodge roll available.

It is likely not an error. I was upgraded to Silver last year even though I didn't even spend $1000 at Best Buy throughout year. They sent me an email about 1-month after they gave me silver letting me know that they upgraded me because I was a valued customer. They gave me silver again this year even though I spent less this year. It is likely that they are hurting for business so they are trying to keep people purchasing from them in any way they can. Enjoy the benefits, the free shipping is especially nice :)

Chapter 4 myself. I don't hate the bench as much as I did at first, but its takes WAY too many shots to kill the easiest of enemies, it's ridiculous. After re-playing DS 2 right before this one, the feel of the game doesn't feel right. Guess im too picky, or I like the status quo ;).

I must be the only person really looking forward to the new Army of Two game coming out in March...I would've definitely used this promo for that game.

Think I will save them all for a big purchase like a new TV or the next-gen Xbox.

The rumors seem to put the price point for the PS4 around $400 so after using this promo to the max a person would be able to score a next gen system for about $150. Combine that with a GC offer & you'll get a PS4/720 for cheaper than a PS3/X360 LOL.
Brand new nex gen system for 60% off plus any GC deal that's truly the CAG way no need to wait for a price drop just make your own. If only the PS4 came w/BC.

You can't use RZ certs on pre-orders when first pre ordering them now. It's pretty dumb

That's not the dumb part at all the problem would be that RZ certs expire probably. So if you pre-ordered a game for $5 in January using a cert that expires in March for a game that releases in June when the "return" the pre-order you may lose the $5. It's a system flaw but as we all know with BB system's flawed.

I think I got silver status for my RZ but I didn't spend 2500 last year. Anybody have this happen to them?

You can get awarded silver status by spending $1500 in back to back yrs. Also, your trade ins count towards silver too so if you spent $1000 & traded in $500 you may still get it.

I'd love it for this promo since it would be on sale in 3 weeks but the 2nd one under performed badly so I guess the suits didn't think it warranted to be in the promo.

Is it just me or is the RZ site taking forever to update? My purchases from New Year's Day is still pending and my purchase of Dead Space 3 is still not showing up.

There's a delay, it says so when you log into your account.

It's not just you, BBY is just dealing with the end of the last fiscal year, and they have this to say (found on the right side at myrz.com when you're logged in):

Between 2/3 and 2/23, new transactions will take longer to appear in your account. This is part of year-end account and system maintenance. During this time, you may still issue certificates if you have enough points available. No new transactions and/or points will be reflected in your account until after 2/23.

Picked up my copy of DS3 today and was able to use the $45 in certs that I got from the fall pre-orders. Also I was able to match the offer for the free guide from the Toys r us ad with no problems. The associate even asked if he could have the ad to do the same. Only weird thing was that he could only do a single transaction per item due to the new system instead of doing it all in one go like before.

My account randomly was upgrade to Premier Silver status. I didn't come anywhere near $2,500 last year, nor did I hit up BBY on any promo that would have instantly upgraded my account, but I'm not going to ask any questions. 60 day pm window is gonna be great for this pre-order promo.

it is a glitch and everyone on slickdeals confirmed they got it too. However you don't get any benefit of the true Silver membership

Another Best Buy glitch? I love Best Buy, but they've had a rough couple weeks when it comes to their computer systems. On another glitch related note, I received a Best Buy Pitch-In card today and I can't make contributions to it because of some unresolved system issue...

  • Spend $100 Get $50 off fail.
  • Random pre-orders being backordered.
  • 3,000 pre-orders randomly canceled.
  • Premiere Silver for everyone.
Next up... Best Buy gets hacked and millions of credit card numbers stolen. :cold: They pull a newegg and free games for everyone. :D

I can't find the article but I remember reading that Best Buy is shipping out Bioshock Infinite for free of charge to some of the affected customers who had their preorders cancelled. I don't know if it's true or not but just thought I would share it.
