Years ago when I worked there it was possible but I don't shop their really anymore so I'm not sure if things changed. Shoot they used to give you codes on a separate paper and you could cancel your pre orders with no issue.


I know this worked fine when you could get the free Destiny shader for preordering CoD

I'll probably get hosed for this but isn't it possible to pre order the game at GameStop pick it up and get the code that is on the receipt then come back and return the game?

It is doable, I did this with the Halo MCC preorder bonus.

It's way too early for me to preorder Fallout 4. I'm going to need to see special editions, store exclusives, etc. before I decide to preorder 6 copies in order to get it all.

Before I go ahead and pre order Batman Arkham Knights on Bestbuy.com I have a few questions..when I go to this link

http://www.bestbuy.c...cat325600050001

it mentions:

Batman: Arkham Knight Pre-Order Bonus

Play as Harley Quinn and receive four challenge maps when you pre-order for
Xbox One, PS4 or PC

 

but when I go to the game itself it only mentions this wayne tech booster pack so not sure if that above stuff comes included, it doesnt appear in checkout or in the item description..and the 10 dollar rewards certificate is also not mentioned in checkout

Well the fact that BB, Amazon, Gamestop, and Walmart are all advertising the Harley DLC for preordering (AND Newegg - don't think they've ever had any retailer exclusive DLC) suggests thats going to be a code automatically included in the box for all first run copies, like the Deathstroke pack in Arkham origins. BB's Wayne tech DLC is probably going to be a code that they send in email.

So basically every AAA title is added to this besides Sony's.

Not Just Cause 3 I believe. I'm hoping for that add.

Right, Sony and Square Enix seems to be the only publishers missing. And they are the two publishers I buy from most lmao dead

 

Sony (Uncharted, Bloodborne, LBP3) and Square (Just Cause 3, KH3, FF15, Deus Ex)

Is my reason flawed in thinking this way or is this pretty much doable:

I'm not sure if I want to play ESO but with GCU and the $10 GC, would I be safe to assume that I'd be able to get $40+ around the next 30% or better trade in and break even? If so, be willing to go tomorrow after work and do so and be at the worst with a title that I could use toward reaching Elite.

I still haven't seen it mentioned anywhere...has anyone seen the Arkham knight version with the season pass included at best buy, or an option to buy the season pass on best buy? We'd kind of like to get our gamers unlocked discount on the season pass.

I think that is digital only. I remember someone else asked here and I checked on GameStop and amazon and didn't see it.

Bb will def sell the season pass by itself but you won't get the 20% off with gcu. They'll probably have a deal when you buy it and the xbone version like most games have had

Best Buy has updated their gaming events page with Arkham Knight midnight openings. It's going to be nice for us west coast folks since they will be doing it at 9pm PST.

Nice! I'm there! Will there be free swag? I pre-ordered the game last night and I was interested in why it said that I could pick it up on the 22nd

Awesome, good to know here it will be open at 9pm. I've never done a midnight opening before but I check and luckily my preferred BB store is actually doing a midnight opening. Usually its the further bb that does a midnight release but they're both doing it. Can't wait to pick up my Limited Edition BAK. 

Great to see fallout 4 on the list but gonna wait until closer to release date.

If so, be willing to go tomorrow after work and do so and be at the worst with a title that I could use toward reaching Elite.

Not really flawed, but that's not 100% how it works.  Typically the first two to three weeks (or more) $60 MSRP titles are $40 base trade in, making them $44 w/ GCU.  When they did the bonus 30% and I traded in Witcher the 30% actually knocked it down a buck to $43 because they lowered the TiV for the 30%.  If you notice, Witcher's base actually increased from $30 last week during the 30% to $35 this week without (it went from $40 to $30 during the 30%).  So, typically even if you hate it you will actually make a few bucks when you factor in RZ stuff.

 

Alternately, if you want to be extra safe you could preorder it in-store for $5, wait to pick it up until the TiV is shown on BBY's website and figure out if you want to return the preorder or buy the game.

 

I typically will buy almost everything that comes out with a $10 credit, play it, trade it in, and roll it over to the next one.  Most stuff I trade in, a few I won't.

Oh so basically

Play as Harley Quinn and receive four challenge maps when you pre-order for
Xbox One, PS4 or PC

 

is already going to be included in the box so it doesnt matter if I order it from amazon, BB or gamestop it comes with it automatically in the box? The Wayne Tech DLC from BB is the extra goodie that BB is offering compared to other retailers..how about the 10 dollar reward certificate when I check out Im not seeing it included

The $10 certificate is $10 of reward zone points, there's nothing to add to the cart.

NBA 2K16 being a part of this promotion is pretty awesome. Getting 20% off, a $10 reward certificate, 10,000 VC and I get it four days early? Can't ask for a better pre-order deal for such an awesome game. :D

Just received ESO from UPS and the box was crushed. The case is broken but luckily the game is fine. I don't know if I want to go through the hassle of exchanging the game for a new one but damage during shipping has been happening a lot recently. Ugh I hope this does not happen to the rest of my orders. End of rant, sorry guys

Its a legit rant though; you should be able to call CS on this. I'd be mad if my game came crushed.

Story pack =/= challenge map
Harley is getting campaign/story content as well

I'm sure the DLC will be added to the online stores eventually but thats usually far after I'm done with games where I'm no longer interested in playing the extra content or feel like paying for it.
