Amazon pre-order canceled. Deluxe Edition here i come!  :D/

The fact that a big AAA title from SE is now on the list gives me hope for KH2.8 and KH3 being added as well!

I don't know, has any remastered games every been on the $10 Reward Cert Promo?

 

Possibility on KH3 if FFXV does well I'm assuming?

No Final Fantasy game has ever been in the promo either. The only SE games that have been added were iffy titles that they weren't sure would sell well. They know FFXV will sell well so I am surprised to see it there. Not saying this means they will be added, but FF15 being added is an interesting bit of info that means it isn't out of the picture.

I was not expecting Mafia 3. Give me Mirrors Edge Catalyst, Deus Ex Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy 15, & :ps4: RotTR also and I'll be a happy camper.

 

I mean I'm not asking for much lol.

 

edit- XCOM 2 also

Woot, at least I got one.  :pray: for the other 3.

I preordered FFXV in store a while back (when I bought Uncharted 4). I presented the GCU, so will I get the $10 reward certificate that way, or do I have to preorder online? I don't like paying for the entire cost of the game several months before it's supposed to be released (& a game like this may even get delayed). I paid the entire transaction when preordering Bravely Second CE online, but I THOUGHT that would be truly limited. I'd rather pay my $5, then pay when I pick up (this way I hope they can't pull the, "ship to store not available," nonsense like they do on some games, also).

Are you paying with PayPal? When you order online with a CC it doesn't charge you until it ships (It gives a pending charge that drops off).

Actually, I did pay with PayPal. I have only bought from Best Buy maybe 3- 4 times, and that was my first preorder from them. I'll keep that in mind. Do I need to order online, and after the reward certificate was announced, or am I good if I placed a down payment on a preorder about a month ago? I have the receipt (obvious to most, but I don't get my preorder without that receipt). Thanks.

I hope Best Buy gets their rewards points together before E3 starts. I'm not ordering anything until I get my $10 in certs from Overwatch. I know they took everything down but this is taking way too long.

I'm also missing my rewards from late May and onwards. I'll give them a couple weeks before I complain. Glad that FF XV is getting the bonus, it pushed me over the edge. I know I should wait for Steam but I have a feeling it'll be a while so I went ahead and preordered.

It should be fine. Even if it doesn't automatically add on, you can always go on their forum. The BB reps there will take care of you very quickly.

Is my existing order fine or do I need to cancel and reorder? Especially with this bs with the points. Also missing points for OW and it $10 cert. Also seeing nothing about the OS order either. Doom went through fine but nothing for anything after that. There no help on the forum what so ever. Just a bot repeating the same message.

I would just re-order so that way you don't have to mess with support.

No need to, it will give them the $10. It doesn't matter when you pre-ordered the game. So long as you have it tied to your rewards account, you'll get the $10.

Yeah, thats how it worked before, but we don't know what they've lost during the interval. Hopefully everything's still there, but who knows?

Nothing was lost, they just transitioned. Granted it took far longer then it should have but nothing was lost as of now.

At this point we do not know that.  Once the system updates with the missing transactions, then we can figure out if anything was lost or not.

Does anyone know if the $10 cert applied for Overwatch for PC? I actually wanted to preorder the X1 edition but when I preordered in-store with one of the cards, the guy sold me a PC preorder. I caught him on it and he just said, "Oh, it doesn't matter. We'll have plenty."

 

When I went to pick it up, the guy at guest service was confused too when I asked for an X1 copy instead of PC which was on the pre-order receipt.

It worked for PC as well. It might cause issues though depending on how the store processed your pickup. I would wait until people start reporting their bonus points are there.

Lesson #1: never trust retail employees, they usually have no idea what they are talking about.

 

Lesson #2: if you think there might be a problem fix it then, never wait and hope it works out

Unless it's an STD, it's always best to wait those out.

Not that it's caught up, but a new transaction rolled in from May 25 (previously May 18 was the last result) so it'll probably trickle in.

Had a great call with customer service for a pricematch, I either get someone who doesn't know what GCU is, or I get someone who can't math and just gives me the difference between the original price and the sale price. Today was the latter, after GCU and the $10 cert, Doom ran me $18.

 

Back OT, You have to go to that specific link to see the $10 cert on FF.  It's not on the main cert page or even on the listing for the game.  I'll wait for it to show on the deluxe edition page, then I think I'll bite.

Has anyone been able to successfully pre-order Titanfall 2 for in-store pick up?  It says there are no stores nearby that can do that, but it might be because TF2 was just officially added to their inventory yesterday.  Just wondering if it's just me...

Still nothing new for me. Does the report missing points option supposed to do anything?
