Would the 20% be taken off $43 or after the coupon and gift card? I was planning on getting Madden during Black Friday but with this deal and the $10 certificate it might be better to get it now.

If you have Madden 15 and GCU you will get Madden 16 for 

 

$59.99 - $10 coupon = $49.99 - 20% GCU = $39.99 (+tax) - $22 giftcard = $18(+tax on 40) out of pocket.

 

Preorder in-store with $5 down and trade in Madden 15 before release date.

Plus you'll receive the $10 Cert afterwards.

If you have GCU, you might be able to trade Madden in to Best Buy for a profit soon after the Black Friday ad leaks and then pick it up for cheaper.  I did this last year, but it depends on how they price Madden on Black Friday.

Awesome thanks guys for the help! Madden 16 for roughly $20 sounds too good to pass up, seriously just an awesome deal!

Anyone know if you get multiple gift certificates when you order multiple of the same game?

So if it says "Through invalid date" then I should just not pre-order because it won't give me the $10 rewardzone points or what?

Just 1. You would need multiple Gamers Club Unlocked accounts to get a cert per each account

For the record, is no one else getting the "Through invalid date" error?

Or is everyone getting the "Through invalid date" error?

If you trade too much stuff in at GS you can get banned at BB, so be careful. :)

Does anyone know if I pre-order a game and purchase it after release day do I still get the $10 credit, or do I have to buy it on release.

Want to Get MGS5 on PS4, but won't get a PS4 until mid September.

You have to pick up the preorder within 7 days I believe. Just preorder it, pick it up, and wait.

did your email say shop with your reward certificate by 8/22? i got an email like that but i cant figure out why. it doesnt show any certificates in my account and i am currently point banking. i want to try and use the certificate # but it seems best buy did away with that option online. it gives me the option to print it so i might just try it in store. it was a $20 certificate though

This isn't worth much but I noticed after logging in to my account that BBY was offering 25 reward bonus points for reviewing your purchase.
 

Review Your Purchase

and get 25 My Best Buy bonus points.

Same here, I got an email saying I had a reward certificate for 10 dollars expiring in early sept. When I log in, I have no rewards.

You will get $10 back in gift certs no matter how many copies you preorder.

That person was being an sarcastic asshole for some unknown reason, you only get 1 certificate no matter what the platform is or how many copies you order.

^ To clarify, 1 cert for 1 My Best Buy a/c. Conversely, to get multiples you have to use multiple accounts.

 

 

From the OP:

Can I pre-order and purchase multiple copies of a qualifying game and get multiple awards?

There is a limit of one (1) award per My Best Buy member per game title.

Edit: This is also why people request you (and others) to read the OP - most of these questions have already been asked and answered.
