I haven't received an issue in nearly 4 months.


Same here! It's been 5 months since I joined "Unlocked" and I have NEVER received a magazine. My address is correct in the system as well. I've called them several times about the issue. I've even wrote an email to BB and @Gamer.

This is ridiculous!

Has anyone ever used the Ship to Store option online? Does it work like doing a store pickup? Specifically, there is a used game I want to get using the $10 off coupon, but its not in any of the stores around me. Can I use the ship to store option, go in and cancel the online order, then buy it in store using the coupon? Thanks for any input!

over here at the Best buy in Torrance, CA. they had the collectors edition of prototype 2 for 20 bucks. on top of that, they also had black ops 2 CARE PACKAGE EDITION for around 99 bucks. final fantasy collectors edition also at 20. was tempted to buy prototype but i decided not to.
I asked the dude that was working at the game department why they drop that low. he said that the company wants to get rid of them and that he personally set the price lower than what corporate wanted to price them.

Can I price match Amazon's price for the Pulse Elite headset and still use the $30 off coupon?

I think it would be easier to do an OMS order. OMS, is an order completed in-store that can be sent to any Best Buy store for pickup or sent to your home with free shipping. When you do an OMS order, they allow you to use Gamer magazine coupons.

Just ask an employee at the Gaming counter if they can do an OMS for the game, if they don't know how to do one, you can usually go over to the Customer Service or Store Pickup areas to do it.

For what it's worth I've done exactly what you are proposing, bought online with ship to store, went for pickup, asked for them to cancel and let me buy it w/ the coupon. But I've only done that once and don't know if it's YMMV.

Did that Friday to pick up Hitman, added a few minutes to the transaction, but no big deal. Hopefully it doesn't get tracked like returns and result in a ban!!

Thanks for the info... what does OMS stand for? I'd like to sound like I sort of know what I'm talking about, lol. If bananafish had success doing it the way I suggested, I will probably just do that. I find the people at my best buy to be a little bit dense sometimes (actually I find that in most retail stores), so its best not to confuse them. I will often order things for store pickup, cancel, then buy it with credit I just got from trading in. Sounds like this will work pretty similar.

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but the 360 controller with transforming d-pad is on sale for $54.99 - $44.99 after coupon.

I believe it means Order Management System. It worked well for me in the past. When Kingdom Amalur was on sale last year, it was out of stock in-store, so the Gaming Rep told me he could order one for me on OMS and use Gamer coupon.

I was able to do both. I purchased the headset using a price match first. After the coupon came out, I went back in and asked if I could use it. They had to do an override but it worked.

Nah, returns are only considered when they need your ID to process the transaction.

Considering how many times I've done this, exchange, and actually returned items I found myself not liking too much and haven't been banned...I think your good.

Somebody mentioned at some point that TRE considered PM's as returns.

Even if they did I doubt most have pm'd as much as me so people should be good UNLESS they have an abnormally high rate vs total purchases which would obviously red flag.

They ask me for ID when I do exchange. Is this normal?

The manager that does the price matches for me sometimes calls the override code he punches in "the get me in trouble code" when an employee jokes about how cool it is to have that ability. :lol: So I assume the customer doesn't get dinged for the PMs but the employee might get reviewed later on for it.

Returns and Exchanges do require ID. But on rare occasions for me, I sometimes don't get asked for an ID on returns and they still are able to process it. o_O?

Oh okay I thought it was a state enforced rule.

I'm waiting for this, too...and debating whether or not to trade in my current copy for credit during the 100% trade in bonus this week in anticipation of hopefully scoring one of the novella copies my store got in when/if it drops to $10.

Evenn the strict reps don't ask me but part of it is I always have my stuff together so they get it done. Being prepared w/receipt proof saves so much time so they just do it.

I also never received the Welcome Packet for renewing my @gamer subscription in September, and a mod on the Best Buy Forums told me that they just recently received some new ones that they'd send via e-mail, so if anyone did not get theirs for renewing recently, post in the forum they have to get them. The representative I had communication with said they had a limited supply of the to give out, so do it sooner than later.
