Just got back. Bought the Locke controller. They did NOT have the physical card for the Req pack. I asked about it and they said I might get emailed a code??

 

Should I be expecting that and if not, what do I do?

Does it look like the one in the controller box?
Just wondering what I'm looking for

The standalone Locke/Guardians controller is the same as the one in the console bundle.

 

I just got back from Best buy myself. Here was my rundown:

 

--Spent $30 on 2 PURP subs for B2G1 used coupons.

--Traded my 500-GB One for $250.

--Bought SSB and MK8 on the Wii U and The Nathan Drake Collection on the PS4 with the first coupon and Halo 5, Black Ops 3, and Forza 6 on the One with the second coupon. Bought Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U and Xenoverse on the PS4 to move the last of the credit (actually ended up with about $1.50 left because I traded Killer Instinct in for $8.80 as well).

--Traded those 8 games (about $260 in GS credit) in to Best Buy for $315.20, while trading in my own Halo 5 and Forza 6 to make the total trade value $401.60.

--Got the Halo 5 console for $500, the Locke controller for $30, and Black Ops 3, the $50 GC, and the REQ pack for free.

 

I spent a total of $203.42 ($30 for the GS coupons, $173.42 out of pocket at Best Buy). I'm pretty pleased. I also have to say, the Locke controller is gorgeous. That blue is fantastic, and I really wish they had put it on the triggers as well. Oh, and sweet stuff that the console is matte.

I'm pretty sure you won't get emailed a code. My BB didn't have any of the physical cards either.

They should type in the sku for the product if it can't be found on the floor.  A digital code prints on the receipt and goes to your email address on file.

Is the "Fallout Gold Bundle" physical or digital?
 

 

Got this in an email.  At first I thought the season pass would be emailed but It appears that the season pass will be included in the box. 

 

EDIT

Also, I suppose the person who wanted to order for both consoles to secure the price could actually keep the one DF found to be the best and return the other/s.

You might be able to call CS and say that no one informed you about it and get it. The in-store guy I spoke to first flat-out told me I couldn't get it, and that he tried it earlier that day and it didn't work. Another guy told me it would, and it did.

I wish the $25 was off whatever game so I could do the best deal which for me would be Rise of Tomb Raider and Fallout 4. Maybe I'll get lucky at midnight and it'll glitch out and allow it. Or I'll just continue my backlog as planned and wait for price drops in January.

Damn, had I known about the controller coming with the REQ pack, I probably would have waited, although my nearest store did not participate in the sale.

They vehemently said that the REQ pack is in the controller (which there is one) but said I wouldn't be getting an extra one.

 

Is it worth sending Best Buy an email about this?

I'm in Cst and the controller deal still worked even at 8:30. So if your store was doing the special event today, you can still get all deals until closing tonight you mountain and Pacific folks.

Maybe the deals were all day, and they just meant the tech demos were 1-5?

I ended up getting the halo console since I was unable to OMS the Forza one. Employee at customer service was surprised with the deal. The only thing I regret was not picking up the 3 month live card. Any idea what price I should be looking for a year of xbox live?

$30 for a year is my number, but anything under $50 is passable. Really, $15 for 3 months isn't a deal, it's the same monthly price as a full-price year is.

$30-35 is a 'deal' for a 12-month. $40 should be the very max you pay if you are ever desperate.

Damn! I did not see the info about the controller!

 

I got the TombRaider 1TB bundle + BlackOpsiii + 50$ Gift Card, but I didn't know about the 30$ controller, I missed that info earlier I guess.

 

The day is over, I don't think I can go tomorrow and get price adjusted/fixed.... so thats a lost one, oh well.

There's no way he bought all of them, they keep a lot in the back. Unless you mean all of the gears of War xbox one.

No. If you return the console, it deducts the game and gc value from the amount refunded.

Here's hoping that they get the elite bundle by December 1st so that I can go exchange my Halo 5 console for the Elite.(Within the 45 days of course) I love you Best Buy

Do you think I'd be able to exchange my free game (COD) for Star Wars when it comes out? Going take the receipt and explain then.

Bought Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U and Xenoverse on the PS4 to move the last of the credit (actually ended up with about $1.50 left because I traded Killer Instinct in for $8.80 as well).

--Traded those 8 games (about $260 in GS credit) in to Best Buy for $315.20, while trading in my own Halo 5 and Forza 6 to make the total trade value $401.60.

--Got the Halo 5 console for $500, the Locke controller for $30, and Black Ops 3, the $50 GC, and the REQ pack for free.

 

I spent a total of $203.42 ($30 for the GS coupons, $173.42 out of pocket at Best Buy). I'm pretty pleased. I also have to say, the Locke controller is gorgeous. That blue is fantastic, and I really wish they had put it on the triggers as well. Oh, and sweet stuff that the console is matte.

I traded in my Xbox One purchased from a kid on CL for $80. It was broken and still under warranty so Microsoft swapped with a refurb. Because I already had an Xbox One with two controllers I added in one of my own controllers for the trade in. Took the $250 in credit and rolled it over to eBay gift cards then $250 worth of Best Buy gift cards.

 

At Best Buy I traded in MGS V, GTA V, and CoD AW and got $97. I had $347 in gift cards and bought the Tomb Raider 1TB Bundle w/ Dragon Quest Heroes on PS4 as the free game and the Locke Controller for $30 more. Add in a $15 cert I had and I paid $93 out of pocket for all that.

 

Took the gift card and bought a 3rd Gen Nest Thermostat. Since my power company has a $50 rebate on a WiFi Thermostat it'll only cost $165 with tax. So $258 for all that. Not bad for $826.75 worth of stuff with Tax.
