Just a reminder, to see if you receive your points, you have to look under the date you preordered. I already had the base points for MGS post to my account.

Maybe I'll have the bonus points tomorrow, that might be a record.

Holy crap that's a lot of points. I didn't know the BB credit card bonus points was counted as separate from the regular points you normally get.

Man I was looking forward to mad max so much but I'm gonna pass and just get forza instead. I feel like it'll be too much like sunset overdrive and dying light were for me, super boring just cuz of the point a to b repetitive stuff

Yea that's why I use it and just pay it off at the end of the month. For a normal $60/$48 game that's not a part of this promo, I get about 190. 690 if it gets the bonus Cert. That's almost an extra $5 back per game.

I'm more interested in playing Mad Max than MGSV. I'm actually going to trade MGSV in and buy it when it hits under $20 in a year or two. I wouldn't usually do something like that but I only payed $32.xx so I'll get like $8-$10 extra plus the $10 cert.

Yeah, the base points posted for me a couple days ago.  I have always pre-ordered in-store in the past and I always got the bonus points at the same time as the base points.  So I take it this is normal for online pre-orders?  The base points post before the bonus points?

You can still get the cert. if you preorder right now (10:30ish), right? ._____.

 

Thanks to the person who posted the $10 dollar off promo for Mad Max.  I was too lazy to go back and see who it was lol.

Yes, as long as it still says pre-order.  $10 off when you buy the movie and the game together.

Ok Im pretty sure this will be fine but just checking.

 

I ordered the Metal Gear V CE online as well as the standard when the 50% off glitch happened. I don't think im keeping the CE so im going to return but I assume I should still  get the $10 cert since I had another Metal Gear pre-ordered.

 

I figure even if it doesnt do it automatically I can just call and get it fixed.

I pre-ordered both MGS and Mad Max a while ago... of course they just shipped. If they get to me somehow tomorrow then good, but they won't and I will be angry.

Hi SgtWiggles,

 

Good question, yes your Saga Bundle will get you 500 bonus points. All collectors editions of games on the Get $10 in Reward Certificates promotion are eligible to get the 500 bonus points. It may take 15-20 days for that to show on the transaction but keep looking. If you don't receive it after 20 days be sure to contact us at 1888-BESTBUY. Thank You being a loyal My Best Buy and GCU member.

Hubert is too lazy to type up a new post.

Are you talking about pre-ordering a digital copy from the kiosk or the physical copy?

Protip, game reviews are near useless, especially from larger publications. Play it yourself (or at least watch some gameplay videos) and make your own decision.

Those MGSV reviews, due to the conditions in which they were written, are especially disreputable. Many reviewers didn't even see the end of the game (and the hospital opening wasn't even in the review build, along with the FOB stuff which now is known to cost real money for any FOBs after the first), or just ran through all of it with the invisibility hat on.

Of course, with the stuff that's come out recently, such shady/scummy practices from Konami should not be much of a surprise.
