Some of these states feel like they should be getting more launches then that, like 1-4 in the whole state? Usually one of the ones near me has one when Best Buy has a midnight launch for a game, but not a single one is close to me currently. Hope that they do add more stores before it is out!

Just had a problem with BestBuy, I had preordered the last of us when it was $59.99. They were telling me they cant give it to me for $49.99 because its been over 15 days since I placed the order and because it is $49.99 for the "Black Friday" sale

Just to clarify, the LE of Destiny will get the $10 back as well right?

IDK we`re actually breaking down the mods with so many of the same requests over an over, they`re actually starting to refer ppl to existing ideax threads. That would`ve never happened 2 yrs ago.

The odds are better that you will win the lottery on this one.
A niche visual novel handheld game that isn't getting a physical release, no chance in hell. If any one of those adjectives that I used for AA ever gets a RZ bonus it will be a miracle.

No pre order bonus for Diablo 3. Looks like I'm waiting for a sale...

The certs work on preorders in store right?  Was going to use GCU, Movers Coupon, and some reward certs on the destiny limited edition.

Quick question. I have three RZ certificates, two expire on August 9th and one on August 16th. If I use them to pre-order Diablo 3: UEE which releases on the 19th am I going to run into any issues when I go to pick up the game?

It would work because the My Best Buy certificates are processed and paid at time of order. If you cancel an order the points are reissued a few days later. So you're good!

Thanks for the heads up about the midnight launch event for Destiny. Called in and had my Limited Edition switched to store pickup, didn't want to cancel and re-order due to using rewards. Was a painless process over the phone. So excited for this game!

I would call and talk to someone different. Sounds as if that rep didn't know what they were talking about.

If you order a special edition of a game and a regular edition of a game on the same console can you get two $10 certs?

Can reward certs be used by other people? Like if I pre-ordered Destiny, could my GF use the reward cert when she picks up her per-order with her own MYBB account? And still get her own $10 bonus?

 

I hardly ever pre-order anything, and it shames me to say it...I am not very familiar with Best Buy's system.

it can take up to 15 days after picking up game for the reward points to show up so if you both getting the same preorder game it won't matter either way since the $10 wouldn't be available to you yet.

I have to vent about how stupid BB handles online preorders.  I preorderd Destiny and got changed  but then after about 6 days the money was back in my account.  This morning I was just charged again, I called BB and they said they put a hold on the card and rehit the card every 7 days to validate it till the actual game is available.  I cancelled that crap and I'll go preorder it in the store for $5.

BB pre-order system is really bad. Pay with paypal, they take the money out right away though... but no need to deal with hold on CC.
