Quick question for those that have experience with getting Gold editions that were NOT listed in BB $10 cert email or employees who might know more details
I want to get Shadow of the Tomb Raider Gold but it is not listed in the current email as qualifying while almost every other game on the list specifically shows the gold edition.
Should I be paranoid about not getting the $10 if I get the Gold edition?

It usually applies to all versions even if they forgot to put the banner.

Pretty sure R* games are rare, if never on this promo list so not really surprising.

I'm trying to pre-order as much as I can on my GCU before it runs out. If my GCU dies before a game is released, but I pre-ordered before my GCU expired I'm good, right?


I suggest preordering with PayPal, so the purchase takes place on the day the order is placed.. otherwise the order takes place when shipped. I have run into problems many times with bb cancelling my orders when they wait to get paid, even though my account had sufficient funds. I know I'm going to rack up my preorders now, my wife keeps threatening to quit her job, and it will be much harder to justify (to her) if I place it afterwards..

Will BB not have Fallout 76 for digital pre-order?

Mario Tennis wasn't part of this program so you won't see the $10 in rewards.

Just FYI, beta codes for Fallout went out yesterday, or at least it did for me. For now you just redeem it on your Bethesda account for when it's announced.

It wasn’t? Damn, why did I preorder a physical? I thought it was. Time to return then.

I'm assuming you'll still be able to cancel your pre-order if you use the beta code and dislike the game. I want to try 76 but don't want to have to go through the hassle of returning the game if they won't allow cancellations after the code is used. No free beta makes me think they are worried about how the game will be received.

Pre ordered Vampyr and the store in my town says out of stock. How the hell? Anyone ever have this problem with BB?


I’ve had that happen twice in the last 5 years with B.B. preorders with in store pick up out of dozens of orders each year

I mean, people have been ordering Amazon copies just for the beta code that's sent immediately, then canceling. BB shouldn't have an issue with you changing your mind based on the beta. If you're really concerned, can always return the game after picking it up.

Didn’t see it with a quick search...

If you buy two copies of the same game do you get two certificates?

Do you need to do two different transactions or just outta luck and one is all you get?

It’s a bummer. I wanted to order one or two of them but my GCU ran out and I would be using a friend’s. However I think he’s going to get them too.

It is one per account... meaning if you were going to get a physical and a digital, you could use the has-GCU account to get the physical version, and a non-GCU account (since digital doesn't get GCU anyway) to get the digital version, and each account would get their own cert.

I guess it's time to lock in some of these $10 bonus preorders before my GCU expires. :(

Thinking I'll grab Super Smash Bros for sure...

Does anyone who has picked up a game that launched after their GCU expired know yet if the GCU discount holds for those that preordered online before their membership ran out?  There seems to be a lot of confusion over whether you only get the discount by paying the entire balance upfront with paypal or if you preorder with an authorization charge that goes away in a few days and keeps the funds in your account until a game ships.

 

I ask as I don't have nearly enough money in my account to preorder every single game upfront for the next year all at once, but if we're just talking authorization charges I can probably manage that as they'll go away and I'll keep the money until each title ships.

No expiration date and I'm glad you mentioned that because I also forgot about the one I got with Vampyr.

Of course the only 2 games I want enough to buy day 1 are not part of the promo (Red Dead 2 and Spiderman).

I haven’t gotten mine yet. I actually just made a topic on gamefaqs to see if anyone else has gotten their code.

They don't even need to give me money to make me pre-order these two. I'm just glad we're getting them at all. Cannot wait. Red dead also but less so than these two

Still no code. I even preordered and amazon copy last night and did not get a code. Very disappointed.
