If I use rewards certificates can I still do this? What about my best buy card (it isn't the visa but the normal one)

can use certs but total has to be over 100 after you apply the certs. And doesn't matter what type of credit card, you just have to add it to the visa checkout. I use discover

Does Best Buy ever add the $10 pre-order bonus for Nintendo games?

Tastes like chicken.

Waiting for Fire Emblem Echoes to be available for pre-order so I can combine with another set of Joy-Cons.  Joy-Con charging grip is sold out right now :\

Anyone know if they've ever carried the digital version of MLB The Show before? Pretty bummed I can't get that with this deal.

I hate that Best Buy shipped some of the $1-5 items I ordered with Fed Ex. They usually deliver before anyone gets home, and I either have to take a 2 hour ride to their nearest location, or pay an extra $5 to schedule a delivery.

It's not letting me add the best buy card to visa checkout (probably cause its not a visa card or anything). I click visa check out and try to add the best buy card to it and it just tells me invalid card.

they probably reverse the termp charge/hold and will report as final charge hitting your actual stmt and updating your balance due.

It's not going to work for the in store card. Both of your questions were answered multiple times in the last two pages.

Anyone know if BBY canceling an item due to it being backordered affect the deal? I placed an order for a movie that was backordered in Nov. using the Visa promo and it has not been in stock. I received an email stating that if they don't receive any of this item by Jan. 22 it will be canceled. It is the only thing left from that order that I have not received.

Yeah, that sounds about right to me $200-25=$175.

I am hoping BB adds the new Fire Emblem game releasing in May up for pre-order tomorrow so I can buy another set of games.

They already have pre-orders for the FF7 remake.  They better put the pre-order for Fire Emblem Echoes

Damn. Totally late to party, charging grip and neon switch controllers out of stock. Went with grey controllers and 1-2 switch. Not sure if that was right decision,. It felt better knowing I'm not paying full price for that game. Really hope BB adds Bomberman r before deal is dead.

How?  B2G1 is 33% off if you choose same priced items. This is at best 25% off.

Whenever there's a B2G1, there are never games on sale. This promo, you can at least take advantage of good sales, also being able to work on pre-orders is a huge bonus.

Hey guys   I want to let everyone know that wants the Horizon Zero Dawn Collector's Edition is up at best buy right now.It comes out to $74.99 with the $25 promo.

Nope, this is more like 40% off if you have GCU.

Buying two $60 games turns both to $36 before taxes. That's literally twice as much as the usual GCU discount.

However, buying B2G1F, each game comes out to about $32 before taxes, so that's closer to 45% off MSRP.

So this is not as good, but still pretty great for new games.

This is most effective on CE's/Nintendo titles that are unlikely to see discounts, or accessories, particularly on the Switch.  Short of some kind of massive glitch, it's probably the best you're going to do at launch for this stuff.  

 

I'd love to see a B2G1 like Amazon did with PS4 stuff, but there's not been a precedent on a Nintendo home console that I can remember.  I think ToysRUs did B1G1 40% off on 3DS launch titles but that's equal to Prime or GCU anyway.
