So if I ordered the Gold Bundle online and it shipped, should I have received the season pass code already? The Best Buy CS is horrible and nobody knows whats going on. I pre ordered the bundle through the weekly ad.

I can only speak from personal experience, but my code was emailed around 9pm PST on Monday evening, when the game was released.  I ordered the Gold Bundle online and had it shipped.

Although with all the errors Best Buy had, it would not surprise me that they have not sent the codes out.

Is this deal/glitch still live?

Only if you preordered, so no.

I called there CS and supposedly they are emailing me one in 24 hours. I doubt that though. Did everyone who ordered the sku from the weekly ad have money refunded to them? I do not see anything like that on my order or CC account?

no the short sku the one in the ad isn't the one getting refunded. Only the long sku one that was originally posted is getting there passes refunded

I ordered multiple copies of the game due to first wanting the gold bundle then did a gold bundle with the $25 off another game but only received one code.... CS said i will get a 2nd code but all i wanted was to return the one for full price...  We will see what happens...

Thanks for that, i just couldn't remember as i don't preorder as much as i used too.

 

 

Also, with my multiple orders, one of them they marked the season pass to $0, so it says i got the gold bundle and season pass for $48 including tax... I guess i messed up the system lol.

Well my game finally shipped. Was not going to rock the boat right away since they gave the SP for free.  No need to call any attention to that :).

Just got my e-mail from BB with the season pass code for the gold bundle (in-store pickup). So it was just a little over 24 hours from the time I picked up.

ordered last Tuesday. Didn't ship till Monday. Supposedly receiving it on Thursday. Was only charged for the game, not the season pass so I can't really complain.

So, again, I ordered the gold edition from bestbuy.com for in-store pickup. Like others, no season pass was on the receipt. The corporate number (1-888-BEST-BUY) gave me the run around and basically sent me back to the store. I drove to Best Buy and walked to the customer service desk. Told them the problem, and he rang up the season pass. Manager came over, zeroed out the price, and handed me a receipt with a code. Took less than 5 minutes. If only their call centers were this efficient.

Really odd on the Gold. I preordered it and they charged me on each part originally. 47.07 for the game and $25.80 something for the pass (taxes included on those prices). I received an email for the pass on Monday and the game/socks showed up yesterday, but it looks like I was only charged $47.07 on Bestbuy's website. The pass is showing $0 as of today. Anyone else end up with the free pass and know the story or are we getting charged later again?

The same exact thing happened to me. From what I gathered, it was supposed to be together on one sku and turned out to be two separate entities when it should have been just one. I doubt they'll recharge us but we'll never know

Good to hear. It's been about 23 hours since I picked up my copy and 19 since I called customer service.  If I don't get it by this evening, I may ask them to reprint the receipt for me in store when I go to trade in a couple of games. Hoping it might be on the actual receipt since I just had a pickup receipt from yesterday.

Yep, Same happened to me. I got a refund on the season pass for some reason.

Fortunately it's a federal crime to mail liquids with USPS.


This is not true.

This even remotely true.


I'm not sure, but if it's a glass bottle what stops the person receiving it from saying it broke in transit?

My season pass was emailed and also printed on receipt.

Gladly I only ordered the regular edition and they had a few extra gold. Not a huge fan of the socks, but $5 off season pass and an additional $5 off season pass due to GCU pushed me over the edge ($10 off season pass total)

The socks were just a bonus

Nothing. Which is true of absolutely everything sold on ebay.

Disclaimer: I am not a scalper or an advocate for such ridiculousness. I just marvel about when certain CAGs pop in to offer legal advice.

I was happy with the original deal but this is great. I didn't know they were including a Fallout 3 code in the game too. Being that I already have the GOTY I don't need that.

So after GCU, the Best Buy error, eBay of the socks and code, $10 reward... I'm out $18.29 for Fallout 4 and the season pass.

Pretty sure I spent more than that for Fallout 3 GOTY last year as a six year old game. Love this site so glad I found it!

You ask them for a picture of the broken bottle. If paypal or ebay does not let you do that, you claim insurance with USPS since they insure items for $50.00 for free if you do priority mail. Also, you can set your limits to the type of buyer you want purchasing the bottle.

I pre-order the gold bundle on friday. I paid in store but one of the best buys reps place the order on best buy.com and I think she forgot to use my phone number for the gcu discount. I had a pending charge for $89.99 but that was refunded to my checking account and now it looks like I'm going to be charged $59.99 for the game and $0 for the season pass. Do you guys think I should call customer service and try to get the extra 20% or should I just leave it alone. I also checked the purchase history on my best buy.com and the Fallout bundle isn't showing up so I probably won't get the $10 certificate for pre-ordering either. I wish the stupid rep wouldn't have screwed up my order. I would've loved the gold bundle for $43.99 with the $10 certificate.
