Also got my BL3 $10 already. My game is out for delivery, though with UPS in my area, it probably will come so late that I won't be able to start until tomorrow.

 

Btw, the season pass is now up on PSN for $50. Glad I got the SDE from BB with GCU for $80, making the pass $32 and a side bonus of the deluxe dlc and steel case.

Yeah, I normally don't buy "Gold" editions but I got the SDE. Pretty nice deal with GCU especially since I believe the SDE goes up to $120 MSRP next week.

They just sent stock to stores at the last minute for some reason. Mine got the game Thursday morning for a release less then 12 hours later...

The store where I got the game told me they were still waiting on their shipment Thursday morning as well. I assumed the clerk was misinformed until your post.

 

You have any insight as to why the 9pm release events are handled so poorly? A Best Buy customer service rep posted that a memo was sent out informing stores that they should all be participating in the early release for Borderlands but people were posting that their stores knew nothing about the memo.

That's easy - some people check the memos and some don't. Most stores also having gaming as part of six departments now, so being able to check things like that isn't always possible.

Well the store manager or a manager on duty should be doing that every day in a properly run store if the clerks aren't doing it or are too busy. Not reading the memos can lead to a lot of dissatisfied customers as is evident on the Best Buy forums.

I did an in-store pick up for BL3 on Friday and I received my $10 RZ cert this morning.

They did post about all the 9pm releases but I'm sure most "sales" employees don't check that stuff or even know it's there.

Our store had sold out of BL3 when I got around to picking up my pre-order. Still debating returning and waiting for BF but I'm not sure that it would be much cheaper than GCU + $10 rewards. :-k

I pre-ordered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Xbox One since I still have GCU and used my $10 BL3 pre-order certificate towards it. But they sent me Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Pre-Order Bonus - PlayStation Captain Price for Blackout in Black Ops 4 code. Even in the description for the Xbox One version, it says you get a PS4 code. Why would they think people ordering for Xbox would want a PS code?

Now I have a dilemma. I'd like to upgrade to deluxe since the sp00ky skins are up my alley but I know damn well returning the pre-ordered base copy will remove the 500 bonus points, despite having bought a new copy. Just how difficult is it to request the points back once everything is all said and done? I don't doubt they'd be willing to do it, since they can clearly see the chain of events on their end but I'm wondering if they've been hassling anyone that has done this before?

I might return my unopened Super Deluxe this weekend, I rather use my giftcards/certs on Ghost Recon or Modern Warfare since my GCU expires 12/4

Be aware that the digital version of Super Deluxe has already increased msrp from $100 to $120. Getting the physical for $80 after GCU is a nice deal. For now, physical SDE is still $100, though not sure if it will stay that way.

So exactly how bad is the new Contra supposed to be?  I'm debating preordering it and getting the $10 egiftcard (comes out to $31.99 plus the additional gift card), but if it is terrible I will probably wait until it hits $10 or so.

I haven't heard good things. But I do believe a demo for it just dropped recently if you'd like to check it out for yourself.

Was planning on pre-ordering  Ghost Recon Breakpoint and i noticed all of a sudden it seems everything is sold out except the digital deluxe for Xbox one.  I find that kind of hard to believe but maybe BB website is having issues.

Best Buy’s page doesn’t mention that Modern Warfare has the $10 promo anymore. Did I miss the window?

No, there's still a blue banner that said $10 eligible rewards on the product page on top of the game artwork on their website.

What is the proper order for a $10 trade in coupon and gcu applying? Snagging FIFA on Friday and can’t remember.

Sku, coupon, then reward zone id to kick in gcu?

Or sku, rz id, then coupon last?

Thanks for any help.

I saw. I’m hoping the $50/$40 holds for tomorrow.

I think you are right on the coupon last I just couldn’t remember.

I’m just looking forward to the sale/gcu/coupon triple combo headache.

Hopefully they add the ultimate edition to get the gift card too. Wouldnt surprise me if they didn't though.

They ended up crediting me over chat so it worked out.

Decided to grab Ghost Recon for that price and a Divison clone, no brainer, now will have to pick up Grid next week, hopefully UE will add $10 also. Any news on NFS Heat getting $10 would be nice also.
