►Best Buy Deals: Select Games w/$10 in Rewards & Other BB Deals!

They posted another update, not sure that I believe them but we’ll see:

“This should (hopefully) be my final update on the Watch Dogs: Legion bonus $10 in rewards offer! It sounds like the holidays and year-end activities pushed the rollout of these points back a bit further than we originally anticipated, but I’ve received word from our internal support teams regarding these points, and I understand they should be posting to all impacted orders soon.

As I’ve mentioned in my previous replies on this thread, you will not need to send us a private message with your order information, even if it’s to double check, or make sure we have your order number. Believe me, I completely understand wanting to make sure you’re not missing out on any perks for your pre-orders with us. Rest assured, we’re aware of the orders impacted at this time, and expect the points to be posted to your accounts soon. “

I logged in to my Best Buy account to find 500 points added to my rewards balance, so it seems the Watch Dogs Legion issue is resolved. If you're waiting on the same points, log in to see if they're there.

I got points a couple of weeks ago when I pushed the issue with a rep over the phone and I got points again today.

For the moment, anyway, just the ones listed in the OP: Deathloop, Halo Infinite, Outriders, and Far Cry 6.  Three of those are listed on Best Buy's landing page for this; not sure why Deathloop isn't listed there, but it does have the $10 banner on the actual product listings.

 

But preorders are still pretty scarce for 2021 titles right now, and I'm sure once more start popping up, there'll be more offers as well.

For those with gcu left, check your emails.  I was just told they were canceling active memberships and refunding the purchase price via physical checks.  Looks like I’m going all digital sooner than later.

The Lego Steelbook game case has dropped to $10. All of them in my store are pretty scratched up so I would only buy one if you actually want to use it to hold games. :razz:

Not a GC or reward cert, but Resident Evil Village preorders now get a steelbook.

It's time to pop in to your local stores for some Spring clearance. A lot of games are going for way lower then their online price.

 

A few examples:

 

NBA 2K20 Xbox $8 ($26 online)

Control Xbox $8 ($24)

Assetto Corsa Competizione Xbox/PS4 $11 ($32/$34)

Snack World Switch $13 ($38)

Skully Switch $8 ($21)

Robotics;Notes Double Pack Switch $11 ($34)

Blood & Truth $11 ($26)

 

Of course, YYMV. These prices are going to vary by store. If the site has something on clearance and your store has it in stock then it's probably going to have a lower price. I actually bought one of the games on the list last week and it was restocked at a lower price so prices are only going to get better.

Someone in another thread said Astral Chain and Daemon X Machina are also on clearance.  None around me unfortunately.

 

I’m tempted by Snack World, but it only seems to be available at a further out Best Buy that isn’t anywhere near errands so I can’t justify wasting the gas.

I've never had great luck with clearance games in my area. They keep 99% of the games behind the counter and don't usually update price tags out on the floor, is there a better way to figure out prices other than hassling an employee to look everything up? Might have to go in today, maybe things have changed with how they handle this as I haven't been in a little while.

The app used to tell you the in store price if it knew you were there but not anymore. If your store insists on having all the games locked up and unpriced then I would suggest coming up with a list of skus you know are on clearance and in stock. Then you can have them check the prices first and only have them dig for it if they are low enough.

Went into today to the closest Best Buy and found Snack World. No other clearances items there. The switch shelves were rather bare. Plus it was kinda depressing in Best Buy, it was the first time I went in since they let all those employees go.

I did see Vitamin Connection, but I’m not sure if it is a game I would enjoy.
