so I went to get the 10 dollar gift card for evil within. argued with the guy for a few minutes but he absolutely insisted they could not price match their website on this because he did not know how to give me a 10 dollar gift card and because it was an online promotion. I then cancelled which is just as well my wallet nor backlog really needed the game. that was 5 minutes of stupidity but nonetheless best buy would top themselves in a few minutes when I went to pick up the smash bros 3ds pre order
my cashier was some new girl who was clueless. after the other busy cashier helped her figure out how to scan my ticket for the preorder they went and got the game. the person helping her then went back to her register but when new girl tried to enter my phone number she couldn't. she then got her helper to show her how and then my GCU wouldn't unlock. the helper then took me to another register so new girl could ring up other customers
the person helping me now called over manager but he was clueless. he then called over the gaming \manager who solved the problem. apparently between now and the Destiny launch best buy was kind enough to make me yet a third account....so my smash bros preorder was under this new account which lacked GCU, I also suspect it is now my default account.
all in all......way to win best buy.....best buy the only place where a 5 second pre order pick up can last 40 minutes.
