I did but not without a massive ordeal.

For what it's worth, I preordered the Smash CE with controller in August, picked it up on release day, and the bonus points automatically showed up as a separate entry on my rewards history on 12/28.

 

A friend of mine preordered the digital version the day before release, and the bonus points showed up together with the points from the game, not as a separate entry, on 12/21.

 

So, just a heads up that the points can show up different ways on your rewards history depending on when/how you preordered.

I preordered the special edition bundle with the controller in August. Didn’t get my automatic points until 12/21.

I preordered the standard verion of Smash on the 5th, picked it up on the 12th and received my cert on the 20th. All the points (bonus and game) showed up together in my account. I was surprised that I received my cert so quickly. It took longer with other recent pre-ordered games.

Not to derail the Smash points incident discussion, but usually how long before your GCU expires does this 25% off email coupon come? Mine is up in 2 weeks and I've seen where they actually disable the benefit 48 hours before your last day.

I’d like to know this too, as during December I bought an entire sound system from them, so it’s really hard to tell what points came from what. I feel like I might still be missing the Smash Bros and Just Cause 4 credits though, as it kinda feels like I didn’t get a lot of certificates.


Just click on rewards and then 'Rewards History'. It shows how many points you've received for every purchase.

What have been your experiences returning brand new items without a receipt at Best Buy? I called up and they told me I would get store credit but I haven't had the best experiences from Best Buy in the past.

Can't if it's opened, but sealed they will give you the lowest sale price in the last 3 months. Typically that's full price but depends on the title. It does get tracked via your state ID but you'd really have to be no-receipt returning things for that to even be a factor. In a pinch, I've had to return things to BB without a receipt and never had an issue. I've turned right around and used it to buy a game with GCU so it actually plays in your favor a bit financially, but again if you abuse it; you will raise red flags obviously.

Last 3 months? Really? Well that would stink if true. I can always go and see what the prices of the games would be if I did return them. Might be better off selling them if they give me the lowest sale price after all the holiday sales they had.

So I pre ordered KH3 before my gcu expired but I had to replace my stolen debit card that I used to purchase the game. Would I be able to just update it with customer service or if I do that am I basically rickrolled not being able to keep the gcu discount?



Doesn’t show as cancelled or anything in my purchase list online


I was told you get rickrolled.

Do they reset the maximum reward points you get for submitting reviews at the new year?

EDIT:

Yes they do, apparently.

Best Buy isn’t supposed to accept returns without receipt, and they give me a huge hassle. Print out an invoice from your order history or something. Or just return it to target/Walmart who will do the no receipt + ID for credit with no hassle.

I called them up and they told me they do. Guess one of those YMMV things. I will be returning Monday or Tuesday so I will update here.

They do (depending on the item). They'll give you lowest sale price while taking your ID. I find the process similar to other retailers.

Yep I tried this today. They would only give me a gift card for the lowest price of the games not the current price of the games so I decided not to return them.

Will this bonus apply for both games if you bought both kh 3 for Xbox and ps4?

No.  Only one per game, not per platform.

Correct.  If you wanted 2 certs, you'd have to use 2 different profiles/accounts to make your purchases.  This works great when you're buying digital, or don't have GCU... not so much if you still have GCU and want 2 discs.

Not $10 Rewards related, but thought I'd share anyway. My GCU expires on the 16th, next Wednesday, and I just got the 25% off email earlier today. For everyone who's Gamer's Club is about to end, there's still hope!

Was there any pre order incentives for pre ordering super Mario deluxe edition? I thought there was a 300 coin redemption for Nintendo eShop?

Digitally on the eShop.

When was the cut off for release date shipping for KH3?

With regular/Elite account free shipping... probably yesterday or the day before, since it's showing estimated arrival of Thursday for me today.  (I'm guessing it calculates as "1 week before release day")

 

With Elite Plus, you can still get release day shipping.

My Kingdom Hearts 3 500 bonus points already posted, and I haven't even received the game yet. They posted on the original purchase date (June) in my Rewards History, so I had to do a little bit of searching to bring it up.

Nothing has shipped yet... besides my preorder bonus keychain blind bag. Yay?

When is the right time and where is the right place to screech about not getting it on release day? Seems awful likely at this point.
