That's stupid. The one ten minutes away from my house isn't on there. Even the one that is half an hour isn't either. I guess I won't be being apart of this. :(

I thought pre-orders for the new consoles were already filled. Thinking about canceling my Amazon and going for Best Buy. Edit: NM. Only at certain stores.

Might be something to keep an eye on.  I'd certainly like some more details.

$30 back for buying the system, a controller and game. I'd save a lot more in tax buying from Amazon.


I can turn your Paypal into Amazon for $2

I just realized, I don't think I've ever bought a next-gen console at launch.

Hmm... I already have a pre-order from Best Buy for instore pickup for that particular store.  Might be worth going there to talk to them about getting the extra $30 back.

Damn, if I wasn't gonna be forced to buy an extra controller then I would be all over this.  Get the $30 back and use my Discover card (if the 5% cashback would be active on BB) on this to get the PS4 hella cheap.

Got this too.  Might have to finally order a PS4 with my $375 RZ credit.  Hopefully I won't have to work that night.

Ugh.. I've had my PS4 paid off entirely via RZ Certificates and gift cards since E3, and canceling that and locating the gift cards and reprinting the $300+ in RZ certificates will be such a hassle, but I'm planning on getting a game and controller as well. /sigh

Wouldn't I be risking launch availability pre-ordering this late in-store, though?

Also, will they require the full payment of $520+ tax on the spot? I'll have enough for all of it with more certificates and my $100 in Shop kick points, but ugh. And will the 2x points stack with the $30 bonus?

The more questions I ask (that pry can't be answered here), the more I just want to cancel my pre-order and take part in this promo, haha.

Would've been an ok deal if it didn't require the purchase of an additional controller.

Okay, I'm a little confused about two things.... first, where does your local store's page list participation in this promo? I checked a bunch of stores in Dallas and didn't see any mention of it.

 

Second... panda911, really? You have no need for a second controller? That might be the saddest thing I've ever heard.

Wow, this is sounding pretty private. So much so that it was filtered to my spam folder.

 

I'm not really seeing that great of an advantage here. Getting to a Best Buy store is a bit of a chore, then once I'm there, I'm reminded why Best Buy isn't worth the 40 minutes drive.

I never buy a second controller for my consoles when I buy them. Why should I? I don't beat up on my controllers normally and I rarely(if ever) have company over so I wouldn't need a spare.

 

As for me, my next closest BB store is doing this event but NOT the one closest to me. Oh well. Maybe I'll hit this thing up anyway for shits & giggles.

At one time, they were pushing the 'no need to print out your RZ certificates' thing. Saying they'll look them up and apply them for you.

All the participating locations are a little too far of a drive for me (60min+), so looks like I'll be passing on this one.

I think it has to do with the fact there are literally no couch coop games announced yet, except for maybe two indie titles, even I am having doubts on the second controller, and I play local co op almost every day. I wish shadow fall would have local co op like Killzone 3 which was a lot of fun, but that doesn't seem like the case.

I also got this email but I really don't need a extra controller that kinda kills the deal for me. Plus I also wonder when I made my pre-order back at E3 cancelling that one would move me down the list again right?!?

nvm, you are probably still going to get it.

Interesting since Best Buy cut off all Xbox One pre-orders on or around 7/7 (they even  disabled the SKU for it).  I actually ended up making my pre-order at the Microsoft Store but would rather Best Buy... so if I can I'll totally take advantage of simply being able to do-so ($30 RZ certificate or not).

I was thinking about it but decided not to cancel my order which I did online. I have a feeling that ordering in stores people are going to have more trouble with employee mistakes and fulfilling them.

if you preorder instore, do not cancel, because it wil be a mess, It is less reliable than ordering from bestbuy website.

I would have preordered my ps4 from best buy in the first place, it's definitely my preferred store, but the guy I was talking to pretty much told me I wasn't going to get one on day 1. He said his and most stores are expecting a handful on launch day. I think he's full of it, but it caused me to go to gamestop.

Someone do the math for me.

 

After the 3x Reward Zone Points, for an Xbox one, how much are we looking back in Reward Zone certificates?
