has anyone managed the following?

PM and Buy Halo 4 and Hitman Absolution for $80
Get $40 GC

Trade-in both games to Amazon (Gamespot Limited time TIV) for $33.75 + $35

Get about $28.75 - Tax in Best Buy GC

seem too much of a trouble though

I ordered through the phone, and never got an email about it. It doesn't show up in my orders on my account, but my GC has been charged.

I know it's late notice, but this worked at the BB in Issaquah, WA. Bought two copies of Halo and PM'd Amazon. Received the GC. Completed purchase at customer service. Good luck!

my online order required me to pick it up at the store before they could price match. Shipping of course would be the best option for this late in the deal. I just received my gc for my online order that was placed a few days back. I think I'll use it to buy a vita memory card tomorrow.

The GC is still in effect, problem is finding a rep that will price match the games. I have had no issues placing orders before today, but I called twice today to try to PM NBA baller beats and get the GC, and both times the rep told me that they were sent a memo saying not to PM any items that doesn't have the "low price guarantee" listed over the price.

I am sure you can still get in on this deal, but it may take a few tries dealing with different reps. I got all the games I wanted so I am gonna stop beating this horse, lol.

Woohoo! Worked for me in store. Just went right to the check out, PM'd forza and halo from target, and essentially paid $19.99 each.

Did they link your reward zone? They also should of given you a order # anyway.

Good catch, but they were on that one quick. I can still get it to load into cart like that, but can't finish the checkout. Tried in two different browsers.

You have to add both eligible games to cart. Then the $40 GC


Did you successfully place the order though? I tried and at final checkout the offer was expired.

Wut?


He's talking about the first guy I quoted. Don't abuse this to trade back in a second after buying it.

I'm not really sure, the rep just told me to give her my email and phone number. That should be enough to find my reward zone info, but IDK if she actually linked it. I never got an order # though. Was she supposed to tell me it?

Unbelievable, I go to two Best Buys in CA today and both I get a customer service person who says you don't get the gift if you want the price match price on Halo 4 and Hitman.
I must have the worst luck.

CA here as well. Same thing happened to me, was either a price match or the gift-card. The only copy of Hitman Absolution they had left though was a Professional Edition, which they had no problem price-matching to $40, so I was alright with just a price match.

The gift-card would've been nice as well though. :(

Of course I did. I'll wait. Should I call if I don't receive anything?

Oh, I didn't try doing it online last night. I actually went in-store for it on Friday. They wouldn't give the gift-card with the price-match. Just one.

Backlog? What backlog?

Wow. I called them up and found out the e-mail was wrong, so it never counted as a purchase on my reward zone or regular BB account. I got the order number though.

Don't even care because when I searched it up, I found out that the rep had PM'd Hitman Absolution Professional Edition to $40. OMG YES!

Anyways, the GC has no tracking number? It just says "USPS 00000000000000NONE" while the games have the same tracking number by UPS. The delivery date is tomorrow for all three items, so I guess I'll be fine.
