My Halo 5 preorder dlc just was emailed, but not the WWE2K16 so far. Not sure if it's Best Buy fixing it on their own or because I posted on the BB forums.

 

EDIT: I have both codes now.

Got a question for the experts.  

 

I pre-ordered Halo 5.  Paid with a gift card.  Will I still get the $10 reward certificate?  

 

I ask only because you don't get your usual reward points when paying by gift card and seems ripe for a possible technicality.  Not terribly interested in Halo5 so not getting the $10 might cause me to not pick it up.  

 

I assume nothing to worry about and it's a dumb question.

Anyone charged $4.99 for a pre-order bonus, Halo 5: Guardians POB?

Paying with BB GCs/certs is fine -- no problem getting the preorder bonus

 

Can take up to 20 days after pick up

I called and they gave it to me quickly.

Oh cool! Did you call the store or the hotline? I called the store that I picked my game up from.

I know me too... I wouldn't steal it because they have my info that I picked up and signed for it. I don't steal anyways.. Happy with the game.

Picked up my copy today and the manager gave me the art book and a mask that were left over from the midnight without asking. Pretty sweet in my book.

Thank you. I just got my Halo 5 DLC code from a very helpful employee from the Best Buy Digital Downloads Dept.

Good on clarifying when you get the bonus $10 certificate. You would shake your head at the number of times that particular question was asked on the best buy unboxed forum (literally 5+ threads on the main forum results page asking when they can expect to get the certificate or complaint about bit getting it right then and there when they locked up their order).

It's pretty sad that my roommates are so upset with Halo 5 that they are already trying to find out what trade in value they can get for it.

What do they not like about it? The new aiming system?

I went to bed right after we got it and let it install.
They stayed up through the entire install and once done they started to campaign....

Woke up 6hrs later and they were downing the final boss and the ending....

They don't like the level design, how most of the game is mostly hold out/horde mode fights, how your AI partners are less than useless, and the sheer lack of variety. Something about fighitng a boss 5-6 times or more, and his final form is just 4 of him and turrets.

 

I've played 1 round of MP since getting up and.. something feels off.. hopefully the Co-op will be fun when they get back up

Also the fact we were pretty much bait and switched plot wise.

The entire marketing campaign is talks about Master Chief going AWOL, and possibly betraying the human race.

The ACTUAL plot is......well I'm trying to find the spoiler tag.

Yes, same here.  It's always something with Best Buy.  This is yet another video game pre-order issue for me with them.

Based upon the math, I was charged $47.99 for Halo 5: Guardians and $4.99 for Halo 5: Guardians POB. To me, it appears they charged me for the pre-order bonus in which the receipt printed out the code. I called their support but they couldn't find my purchase history and said I need to return to the store for clarification. I was going to be near the store again this evening so I will straighten out then.

yea sometimes that happens. I remember being in line for unity and anther worker in line was trying to explain to anther worker that the $5 deposit wasn't taken off his order. Just thought it was ffuny, he worked there as well and the cs rep was treating him like anyone else, like he was trying to pull a fast one or something lol. 

 

I think it's just a system error that happens with in store pre orders, happened to my cuz once or twice. Never had this problem with online in store pick up items.

Just make sure the cashier zeroes it out to a penny or asks a manager to issue you a gift card. The penny adjustment requires the least amount of work.

Wow that sucks to see. I thought I read somewhere that the campaign was going to be robust at 15 hours. If that's not the case, I'm just going to return my copy and wait for a good sale.

It might be 15 hours solo on Legendary. It took myself and 3 others about 3-4 hours to get through the first 10 missions on Heroic (I wanted to play Legendary, they were too scared). It's really easy with the ability to revive people. That, and 2 of the missions we played were basically 5 minutes of walking around in an area and leaving.

I get scared away from playing it on Legendary too. I always commend the players that can finish it like that on solo.

I wonder if they are going to have a true ending for legendary achievements?

Roommate did Heroic in 6hrs...

He thought he was playing normal than got the Heroic Achieve.

It's a beef jerky stick like a SlimJim by Jack Links.

Halo 5 has a base trade in of $30 at Gamestop, nothing at BestBuy yet for those wondering.
