Does anyone know if all the Deluxe bonuses are specific for MP?

Edit: I'm referring to Battlefront, thanks.

Most of it is early unlocks for star cards and blasters it looks like. The two unique skins that are vaguely listed are more than likely for MP and/or SP.

C'mon Visa Checkout promo!

Not really interested in either of these games, but they'll make VCO bundles better.

I know I'll only end up playing one of these but I'll probably lock in a pre-order of both just in case.

This holiday season is going to be nuts.

He got a position with GameStop.

Can confirm. I was the guy that hired him.

If I cancel then re-pre-order later I should still get the cert automatically right? I've had two instances where they never credited my account until I called, but that was a very long time ago.

I let my GCU lapse (I know, I know) because of my backlog, but I guess I'll sign up again.

Where's a visa checkout deal when you need one? Would be great to stack this on top of the GCU and VC whenever bestbuy runs one again...

You're such a tease. At least I can feed my painkiller/ opioids addiction.

If my GCU is a couple of months away from running out, is the easiest way to go about adding time to head into a store and just extend the time?

Yes. The only reason I may not go digital on these titles. Expect $10 certs to be added for Madden and COD WWII as well.

I had to get Destiny 2 Collector from GS sadly and PS4 because of Sony. (I don't mind but exclusives suck)
However, I'm grabbing physical PC @ BB w/GCU+$10cert, it's perfect since it's a Steam game anyway
I'll turn it to digital with the inevitable 2017/2018 expansion (not X-pack 1&2, which I'm using the cert for)

I wonder why there isn't a digital Xbox version of destiny 2?

Damn, where is the $99 version?? EDIT: Nevermind, apparently it's a GameStop exclusive?

I'm also curious if the $10 promo applies to the digital versions. I'd miss out on GCU, but I think I'd rather have this game digitally.

Just don't let your PUR Pro lapse

On the Best Buy forums, the reps are saying this now works on Digital copies

 

 

If you have been a member in the last few years you likely remember our Get $10 offer. We hadn't had any titles since the start of this year, but now that Destiny 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2 have been announced we have been able to include them on the list. New this time around is the inclusion of digital games to the offer. If you pre-order a full game download of any eligible title you are eligible to receive the $10 certificate within 20 days of the release date.

That's pretty decent, now only if you could get 20% off would be totally killer.

This is exactly what I'm waiting for. I still have several orders left from the last two, but I'm hoping to get these and some other new games that were given release dates for later in the year.

Yeah cause BBY has control on giving the games the offers. Plus those are first party games from both Sony and Nintendo, they don't get $10.

As it is their promotion, I'd say they had TOTAL control. Also, if I remember correctly (could be wrong), there were multiple first party games that got the promo treatment. 

Yeah the attach rate for Zelda really took a hit with no $10 certificate.

Zelda (on Switch) may not have overall, but Best Buy lost it's edge over Amazon's Amazon Prime. :-

Best Buy doesn't do it unless the publisher agrees to give a kickback. They are already making only $2 or less when they sell a $60 game at $48.

For current generation PS4/XB1 there has not been a single Sony title that got $10, there may have been a MS title, not 100% there. And no they do not have total control. Manufacturers have control over what promotions and sales happen with their stuff. I think the only thing they don't have impact with is clearance because the store is basically saying "we'll take the loss we just need it gone".

 

Companies, esp game companies do not want some of their titles to have a lower perceived value especially right out of the gate. So any sale or promotion for a big AAA game they think will sell well regardless does not get sales for a few weeks. Best Buy has partnerships with manufacturers and they don't want to hurt those relationships so they work hand in hand.

They confirmed on their forums at least that Deluxe is eligible.

Kind of wish Prey was on the list, seems like the type of game that needs a boost.

Seriously. Hopefully the upcoming demo will increase interest.
