Finally got my $10 for Animal Crossing. Was able to get through to someone in their support chat. They were able to add the points fast. Just need to explain the situation and give odder number. Used it already towards Doom Eternal for $30!

Well I'm finally into my final month of GCU.  I definitely plan on making quite a few preorders and purchases before and like many of you, once I lose it, can't really see myself buying from BB unless the deal is really really good.

Here, here. I'm down to mine as well although I can't remember how to see what day it expires. Pretty sure it's around mid-may but I need to be vigilant for the coupon so I can take them for one last ride.

Anyone else have their Animal Crossing digital points appear sometime in the last month, by any chance? Looks like they got credited again to my account while I wasn’t paying attention (after support added them manually). Shows as credited on release date, too :/

Edit: by the looks of it, they were added early last week.

Could have swore TLoU2 was part of this promo... but I guess not. My GCU expired and they never sent me my last 10-20% off coupon. Also I don't recall getting a cert with my P5R CE.

I never got a gift card for my P5R CE either, and when I contacted them, they said that cert was only for standard copies. Needless to say, I and a lot of other people on their forums were pretty upset about that. Makes no sense to offer a cert for only one edition of the game (and the cheapest edition, to boot). Since my GCU expired, I've soured on Best Buy, though I still prefer to pre-order collector's editions from them. Nearly every collector's edition of a game I've gotten from Amazon has arrived crushed, so I like to stick with in-store pickups for those.

That game looks so cheesy, should be like 29.99 to start with, will wait on that one.

Looks like a bad version of Pursuit Force. 

 

EDIT: Wow, they actually want $60 for that game. Good luck with that Bandai.

Free e-gift card with Fairy Tail pre-order (PS4 or Switch, I'm sorry I can't post links yet).

 

They did this for Atelier Ryza, too, so I hope the trend keeps up for Gust games getting gift card bonuses.

Thanx, I contacted Best Buy thru their forums and they are shipping me a giftcard since they can't manually add it to my Fairy Tail order

That happened with my Ryza pre-order, too. I pre-ordered long before they added the gift card so they mailed me a physical one. A little strange that they can't just send you an email, but whatever.

 

Which version did you pre-order, PS4 or Switch? I'm leaning toward Switch because it's a turn-based RPG (something I could easily play while watching TV or something) and Ryza looked FANTASTIC in handheld.

I am getting the PS4 version since usually that version is better in terms of graphics

Unless you still have GCU or BB rewards/gift cards, get Valhalla and/or Far Cry 6 from Walmart.  Their pre-order prices are $50 each.

Amazon has matched Far Cry 6 for those interested.

The list of eligible games is awful. Between far fewer credits and loss of GCU, I don't think BB is even trying anymore.

Well E3 didn't happen. Are you expect them to add certs for games that haven't been announced yet?

I'm referring to their offerings for the past year or two. Much more selective. Used be twice as many eligible titles.

 

Just look at that list - nothing between April and September. Seriously lol? Plenty of games have released since FF7 Remake

They already make less than $15 per $60 game. Throwing in a $10 cert only makes sense if they are going to get a break from the publisher. That's why you never see Sony taking part.

Was hoping to see the sports games added as they've done almost every year but not looking good :(

I use the 10 dollar cert as a guide to know what not to preorder because the game will be half price in 6 months, thus saving 30 dollars instead of 10

Unless a Nintendo game gets a 10 dollar cert. Then you might as well pre-order since that'll be the best deal that game gets for at least a year.

Totally. Not arguing their decision. I'm not involved in the company. My only point is that there's no effort to be competitive, especially now that they've made the digital option cheaper in most cases (ie discounted credit galore, plus/gold discounts).

Now with sluggish sales, they need to bring GCU back..........................

Not going to happen. They brought in GCU with the goal of becoming the #1 videogame retailer and that didn't happen even with $10 certs and magazine coupons. They just can't compete with how many locations GameStop, Target and Walmart have so it had to go. Better to cancel the program and lose a few sales then to continue making only $1-2 on each game.
