I'm not 100% sure but I think they do an authorization charge and then it drops off after a few days and then they do the actual charge about five days before it ships.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.


They put a hold on your card for the amount and then they put it back and then they take it out agian and so on. I guess they check if you still have money available for the pre order. They do take it about 3 days prior of release tho.

Two Orders, including some movies for my kids:

 

Zelda BOTW

Mario Kart 8

The Lorax Blu Ray

 

Super Mario Odyssey

Splatoon 2

Rango Blu Ray

 

Great deals for Nintendo games which never go on sale.

So it doesn't work if you buy 2 games for $96 now?

I don't have a Visa credit card but I have a different brand. Will I be charged fees for not having a Visa card?

 

And how does this even work? Is Visa Checkout basically an alternate form of paypal?

Must be 100 after GCU and discounts but it works.  You need 4.99 of filler to reach the mark if you are GCU. 

Yeah, I added a 16gb USB stick that was on sale for $4.99. Put me just above $100, and it worked perfectly fine. I pre-ordered Zelda and Mass Effect.

I'm curious as I never have taken advantage of the previous visa checkout promos. If something drops in price and you used a vc promo do you lose the promo if you do a price adjustment or price match? Like if I order RE7 and some other games and before the 45 day return window (Elite Plus) something drops in price will I end up losing the vc promo because I did a price adjustment? Games seem to drop so fast now days.

It's a payment processor. Don't need a Visa card and won't be charged any extra fees.

Damn, my payment is stuck authenticating for some reason.  Tried 2 different browsers.  Card is good and I have more than enough so there shouldn't be any problems.

If I can get a $10 cert to show up with them, I'll probably order a set of Jaybird X3's, otherwise nothing for me.

Have to do some cheap filler to get it to work. It is now 38 dollars a game and not 36 dollars. Damn you BB.

Thanks OP! I attempted to use this along with a $25 gift card but it would only apply one or the other so obviously I went with the Visa promo. I was able to combine it with the $10 off code that Best Buy emailed me though. CAGs, don't forget to check your emails for that promotion as well!

While it doesnt work on psn cards, etc

It does add to your $100 total, so if u got two games at like $96, you can just add a $10 psn card and it will prorate the discount

Just tried it and it works. Better than buying something for $5 you don't really need

Not true, i used a $5 gift card and still got it

I think as long as visa checkout amount is greater than $100, you can use it

Since this isn't working for some reason, who would you guys suggest I call tomorrow to try and get it manually added?  Best Buy or some Visa Checkout support?  Everything is applying and I get to "Place Order" but then it says "please wait, authenticating payment" forever.  Nothing wrong with the card and in fact I used it 2 months ago without any problem.

 

edit: tried on 2 browsers and my phone.  all have the same result.

Arms

The Love Witch

Moana steelbook

Wait Until Dark

 

Question, if these fall in price, I can still get an adjustment, right? Moana and The Love Witch will most likely go down in price, and it was $127 before the $25 off so I should be good, right? Otherwise I'll have to cancel.

This deal isn't as sweet now that I have to hit $100 after GCU. I don't want any wallet currency and going too far above 100 reduces the % saved.
