Has anyone bought the season pass on Gamestop.com?

Cause this makes no mention of the bonus 400 MS points and I really don't want to to deal with contacting customer service if I don't get the 400 ms points >_>
Thats the link I got from clicking their weekly ad

My local Best Buy didn't have any of the physical GoW Season Pass cards, even though they had signs up for it. After an employee asked a few employees, he took me to a giant touch screen preorder kiosk, pressed "Special Deals" and selected "Gears of War Judgment Season Pass" and it spit out a receipt to be taken to the register to be paid for (I printed out a second copy)

Then I took those receipts to the register, where they were scanned and after paying the Live Codes were printed on the new receipt. two 1600 point codes and two 400 point cards.

I entered all four codes into my account and they worked just fine. The 1600 Gears of War Season Pass codes just come up as generic 1600 points, I used one to buy the season pass, and another to buy that new Darkstalkers collection.

I believe Gamestop's offer was "while supplies last". So, maybe they "ran out".

GS ran out of the bonus codes around 6 pm central yesterday and the sale is essentially canceled with them.

Ugh, I would rather burn GS credit then BB Credit.

so this works towards the 500 points from My Rewards? Sweet, I'll pick this up tomorrow. I have $10 in certs to put toward it.
If you're wondering why I have that lowball ban tag, it's just 'cos I expected to get paid and when an argument escalated, I dropped out of the lowball as a seller. I did nothing shady or dishonest. my feedback score will speak for itself.

In for one. These points will be useful for the Bioshock Infinite Season Pass. Thanks OP!

After posting my issues on their support boards, I received my 400 MSP even though I had bought an ineligible SKU of the season pass. I think I had just received my points late because I never provided any of my information to any of their moderators.

Yeah Gamestop sucks. The whole time the deal was live online I couldn't get the extra points to show up in the cart then when I went to a b&m store they told me nobody could buy cards because the system was not working. This was a perfect way to get rid of all the credit I have with them. :bomb:

Does anyone know how long this deal will last at Best Buy? Is it just this week? I'd like to go back and get a couple more to save for other upcoming season passes, but money is tight for this week.

If it ends this week, no big deal. I still was able to get two. Thanks OP.

So it looks like the digital Gears passes are out of stock? Which makes no sense being a digital download.. but whatever.

Do I need to order this online with in-store pickup or can I get this in store somehow?

I was trying to do this as well and can't. In store pick up isn't an option.

I ordered them online and got the code in an hour anyway despite what the site said.

Well, it is entirely possible that Best Buy ran out of codes for the item, and need to get more from Microsoft. Best Buy doesn't generate the codes themselves, they just issue them from a stockpile of codes they purchased for resale.

Is this still going? Do I need to do the in-store pickup on the site for this to work or I can just go to the store and buy a card with this SKU: 9999199800050024, so the 400 MS points get emailed to MyRZ account's email? I live in Puerto Rico so not sure if this would work at my local Best Buy. Also can't use the site since "Online ordering is not available to or from Puerto Rico".

Thanks.

Looks like this is done. Had it in my cart yesterday, but it's no longer listed.

I ordered my points and did the in store pick up thing on Friday. They still haven't credited my Rewards account with 500 pending points yet.

unfortunately for someone like me who would waste more time and gas money actually driving to the nearest bestbuy, this deal isn't worth it due to the lack of a digital download version (which is sold out). i even emailed customer service and they confirmed that it's sold out except for the in-store version. drat :(

Does anyone know if this still works at the store kiosk? I need to stock up on some points for tomorrow's spring sale.

will this last? I have a $10 certificate, but am almost at $20 which obviously would be a lot better.

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Not sure. I'm just guessing it could possibly end tonight around 1am when next week's sale prices go live and the previous week's die. But the promotion could last next week as well I suppose.

Anyway, thanks for bumping this thread. I just bought a card with $15 worth of reward certificates to bring down the price.

Hopefully the free 400 digital points come in tonight and then I can buy the Max Payne 3 season pass for $10 out of pocket.

I had a $10 reward cert that expired tomorrow so I grabbed one of these.

2k points for $10 sounds good to me! :applause:

I had a $10 reward zone certificate as well that expires tomorrow. Any idea where these come from? It's not a regular certificate because it wasn't there a week ago and they don't expire as fast. I had that happen in store a few weeks ago where I went to pay for something and the guy asked if I wanted to use a $5 certificate that was expiring that day. That was also not a regular certificate since I'm pretty quick to redeem those and they don't expire for several months.

Yeah it appeared in my account today as well. And I also had a $5 one that appeared in my account week before last with a 3/24 expiration date. No clue why but I'm not complaining.\\:D/
