Quick question guys,

I pre-ordered the MGR: Revengeance LE from BB about a week ago after I saw they added the White pre-order bonus for Raiden.

Now as most of you realize, BB still hasn't updated the "Victory Can Be Pre-Ordered" thread, and as such no LE/CEs are listed with the $20 RZ cert. A few BB Reps on the forums however have already stated that we "should" be eligible for the it.

What I'm stumped about is, do you guys think I'll be okay even though my GCU will expire on the 15th of March? Since the RZ certs can take up to 30 days to post, I'm not sure if that could void it. I would think it wouldn't since I purchased it when I was already eligible. Figure I'd ask though!


LE/CEs are definitely included. Were on the last set of these, are on this one.

Requirment is that you are a GCU member the day that you pick up the qualifying preordered game.

You're renewing your membership regardless, aren't you?

You have to call 1-888-BESTBUY with your order number close by, say you want to price-match something you already bought online from Bestbuy.com, then tell the next person to whom you speak where you saw the lower price and provide the order number for your original purchase.

Yeah I will, I'll just probably wait until March 12 gets close that way I can pad a few days in there before I pre-order Ascension. (My GCU expires 3/5)

What happens if you paid by GC for the purchase? What do they do?

If you still have the GC they can put the funds back on it. If not, they will send you another one via snail mail.

:roll: Awesome. On the bright side, after the hard hitting month of March, all I have to buy is Injustice for the time being.

Hmmm, to preorder Crysis 3 or not? Basically hoping that it drops to 39.99 somewhere within 30 days so I can PM

Buying any EA game at 60 is a little silly, they along with ubisoft titles tend to get to 49.99 like within a week and 39.99 definitely possible

Crysis 3 has TERRIBLE beta IMO, worse than 2's MP. Hopefully reviews come in by Monday

Waiting on reviews is key in this day and age, especially since Aliens Colonial Marines was panned by critics even though it looked decent enough

Fuck that sucks. How long do these RZ Certs last 90. Should have enough time left to use all three RZ certs. that I will receive from preordering Tomb Raider, God of War, and Bioshock.

That's actually a good reason to use this promo though. Pre-order and purchase it, get a $20 credit, and PM down to $40 during the PM window.

Im not to sure on Dead Island. I got sick of playing the first one right after chapter 1. As for the other title I'll wait for a sub $20 price. Just a month ago, my plan was buying Injustice, Last of Us, and GTA V right after Bioshock, but that's been thrown out the window. Atleast my wallet gets to recover a bit and I can play a bit more of my backlog. :)

Didn't realize this until you mentioned this.

From their wiki:
"It's a standalone game that contains loads of new stuff as well as the original, full, Dragon's Dogma game."

Nice. So basically a GoTY version without the GoTY title. Sounded like an stand alone expansion pack like Undead Nightmare.

I'm a little nervous about depending on a price drop in 30 days. I haven't seen Devil May Cry drop and its been almost 30. Silver members I get it.

If you buy with a credit card you can price match through the credit card company. I think most credit cards price match for 60 days and some even do 90 days.

Not even close to accurate. The few credit cards that do offer price match protection will only do it a limited number of times per year up to a maximum amount and they make it very difficult to get the protection. In fact, I believe only Citi and Chase currently offer it and then only on very few of their cards. In short, nobody should depend on this as an alternative to price matching at BB.

Well if you're a GCU member and pre-order from BB you get a $20 RZ cert and can PM for up to 30 days or 60 days if you're Silver status.

Chase Sapphire, it's pretty easy with their program I highly recommend it. But it must be the same retailer, and no coupon deal/B2G1 trickery.

Do you remember the procedure required to PM on your credit card? I've read fine print for my credit card it says to call the Benefit line. Then to send them your receipt and a printed advertisement of the lower price. After few weeks they send you check of the difference. Is that about right?

Yep, the Mrs. manages the Sapphire and I manage the Freedom, so I can't tell you the exact details, but that is the general procedure. I remember last time there was a hassle about sending the printed advertisement since it was a online sale. She tried to just provide a link but they won't budge.

I also called them to ask if I can fax the ad for further PMs, I forgot what their answer was, I guess it was a no :D

EDIT: I realize I am contradicting myself, seemingly, by saying it was "easy" earlier, so change "easy" in my earlier statement to "not THAT big of a hassle".
