The promo only works once per account per game title.  You can get the bonus $10 with the standard or collectors edition (when posted, have never seen it not work) but if you buy both you would still only receive one $10 reward certificate.  Also if you were to buy a PS4 & Xbox One copy of the game you would still only receive one $10 reward certificate.  

Thanks, I was about to ask the same thing. So related question - do Pokemon Sword & Shield count as the same game, or will you get a $10 cert for each if you buy both?

Since those games are different titles, you will get a $10 reward certificate for both Sword and Shield each.  Best Buy also has the Sword and Shield 2 pack for sale, but you would only get one certificate in that case.  So buying them separately is the better deal.

You should get the GCU price as long as the order isn’t modified before launch date. So don’t change your card #, etc

Oh boy, so if the order is modified for any reason (change of shipping address for example) the price will revert to the non GCU discount because it has expired?

I'm excited that they are offering this on the digital formats but concerned about getting beta invites if I do. I'm looking at picking up a few xbox games with the first being Gears 5. It says that the code will be emailed on the release date. Is this accurate?

When I buy through the xbox directly it downloads and is ready to go before release date and I automatically get access to the beta. Anyone here have experience with this before I purchase it?

The link I posted to Marvel's Avengers game re-directs you to the Captain Marvel page for some reason. :-k  It won't let me do a direct link to the game.

We go through this every year. Then everyone rejoices by June when all the fall big releases get added.

Reading the forums, I think that you have to purchase it all at the time that way no changes can be made when you pick it up after GCU ends.

I’m so jelly that you all (I assume) still have GCU. I just don’t find the $10 rewards certs compelling enough without the 20% discount. ($55 per game)

My new purchase preorders this past year and half have all come from target b2g1 ($41 per game). If that goes away, the cag in me will probably skip preordering games altogether and waiting for a future sale :/

My GCU ended recently so I feel the post GCU blues. I only get titles I really, really want now for the most part.

Mine is still good until February, but after that time comes, I'm buying ZERO games from Best Buy.

I've had 500 points pending for over a month for Rage 2... Did BB increase the time is takes for pending points to post to your account?

Sadly, my GCU expires next week.:(  A bit of good news is the 25% off games coupon was sent to me earlier this week so I can use it when my membership is still active.

 

I think I'll get the Jedi game with the $10 bonus (would be $36 after coupon).  Too bad Cyberpunk Collector's  Edition isn't available.  After GCU and 25% off coupon, that would have been big savings.

 

A bit of warning regarding the coupon:  When you receive the coupon via email, the coupon code isn't in the email.  You'll have to click a link that directs you to the BB site to get the coupon.  Copy the coupon code, because you may not be able to access the coupon page again.  That's what happened to me, the link wouldn't take me to the coupon page after the first time.  Others have had this issue too, as reported in BB's forums.

^Good info and condolences on the loss. I think there's been lots of confusion (along with some poor implementation) of these GCU exits. Now they got to fix people not getting their coupons altogether.

Yea, it was great while it lasted.=) I took advantage of the membership to try a lot of games for free on release day.   Paid $48, play it for a few days and then sold it for what I paid.

I'd check with them, mine typically show up right at 2 weeks if not sooner.
