Not a lot going on for this offer right now. I'm hoping Dying Light's trade-in offer is good, because pairing that with the rewards cert would be delicious.

No promo on Bloodborne is a bummer.

i hope they add the order 1886 to it, since they prohibited the use of gift card to pay for anything that comes with a gift card offer. this is the best deal for games.

Sorry, I'm a n00b when it comes to pre-ordering new releases at Best Buy (just jumped off the LameStop/Amazon bandwagon thanks to the $30 GCU deal). So when I pre-order a game via Best Buy's website for release day pickup at my local store, I don't pay anything down for it immediately at the time of the pre-order?

If you pay with GC it takes the amount right away, for a debit or credit card it does a rolling charge.

They'll put a hold on your card. If you use a giftcard it takes the value right away.

If you don't want 50 tied up right away, you can always go in store and just put down $5. Or wait until a couple days prior release to preorder.

if you really want to squeeze every penny, just go to your local store, and put $5 down on deposit like gs.

As for the poll, I plan on buying every game on the list - as long as trade in values continue to start at 44 with gcu

I pay 48+tax, and get 10 back in rewards (comes out to me paying about 42), then can trade game in a couple weeks later for 44 (plus $1.50 in RZ pts).

Or in other words, every game on the list is a free 3 week rental in my world when I'm using credit/certs to buy the games anyway

trying checking out the surface pro 3 with $100 gift card offer, and in payment area, see if you can pay with a gift card.

Sucks no Sony first party games. No Order, no Bloodborne. From the list only Witcher 3 and Batman are lock day one. Maybe Dying light and evolve for the free rentals unless they suck.

Agree. I had never cared before that ps4 titles weren't listed, since I didn't own a ps4. But now that I've got one I'm keeping, I want to see Thr Order on that list

Elder Scrolls Online still isn't worth it.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm new to GCU and thought preorders didn't give you the 20% off discount.  Am I wrong about that, does the discount still apply in this instance along with getting the $10 off from the promotion?

Yes, but you don't get $10 off.  You get a $10 reward cert.

Tha trade value for new releases usually holds for 3 weeks? I might actually try dying light then


Sometimes longer. Trade in bonuses help at times too. I usually just trade games in once my cert clears if I don't plan on keeping it

Yes, but you don't get $10 off.  You get a $10 reward cert.

Can you apply that $10 towards your pre-order? Meaning, if I pre-order Witcher 3 online, can I use the $10 rewards certificate when I go to pick it up? 

One concern I have is that while pre-ordering 3 games, it looks like it is charging me for all of them now. I do not want this, since then I cannot apply my rewards certificates (at the very least)  towards the 2nd and 3rd preorder. :-/
