Has anyone been able to get away with purchasing more than 3 per title with their GCU discount? I went over the limit thinking it was 3 per title per platform just like the trade ins :\ this was the first time I went over though.

My RWZ account with GCU was banned, so its possible. I'm not able to sign on to it or make online or instore purchases when using it. I did go over the limit a few times around the holidays. When I called in they never confirmed that going over the GCU limit caused it, but I think it played a part.

You're the 1st person I've heard of to have GCU banned ?

 

Are you able to trade, and when you say you went over the limit are we talking 1-2 extra or something else.

Their probably not going ban unless a person goes crazy overboard & even then it`ll take some time. Just be careful not to going forward.

This is my guess too. At the end of the day the policy only exist to limit people from buying 100 copies of something for the intent of reselling.

I haven't tried a trade in a while so I'm not sure. I went over the 3 per limit a few times with different games. I was mostly buying for friends and presents for Christmas time. This is the error I get when trying to sign in.

I have the same error, I was able to get around it by creating a new bestbuy.Com account and calling in to have the two accounts linked. I never bought more than 3 copies of a game, so it wasn't an account ban.

That's interesting, when they got back to me I was told that my RWZ account was banned and there was nothing they could do to reinstate it. They wouldn't even give me a reason as to why. Thank you for posting though I will definitely try your method.

Post on the forums. It honestly seems like they divide the employees based on some sort of merit test. Those capable of solving a high school level math based word problem and those who spell their name wrong on the same test. The latter wind up on the phone service and the former wind up working on the forums.

I got my confirmation e-mail. It says that they will ship a gift card through USPS within 7 days. I thought it was an e-gift card.

They always say that (a confirmation email  I have from last week where later I received an egift says will be mailed), but you'll receive an e-gift. I believe they use to send USPS and the automated reply just never was corrected. You'll get an email with the e-gift in 2/3 days now.

Thanks. The last time they were meant to mail a gift card, they didn't mail it until I called again two weeks later asking about the status. Then they cancelled it when I got it and they mailed another one.

Nope, you'll have to receive a received email first. They come in at exactly 2 A.M. each day. After that it takes about 3 days more.

how long does it take after they receive it to send the email? my game arrived yesterday

IIRC, it takes nearly a week, but I'm not 100% positive on that. If you don't hear anything within 7 days after they received it, you can contact them with the Trade-In ID, but you shouldn't need to do that.

Really? I have a $5 GC coming from them for something and it was supposed to be here over a week ago. Wonder if it was an e-gift card instead...

Doesn't BB email you the gift card for the value of your game? I got the email saying: "Within 7 calendar days, a gift card will be mailed to you via the U.S. Postal Service."

It says that for everyone. It's wrong. In 2-3 days, you'll be emailed your e-gift card.

Yeah, kinda sucks I lost out on the extra $4 but oh well. Need to get my Battlefield 4 in the mail. Good news though is that the place it goes is like a mile down the road from where I work. lol
