Just got a 25% off code from Best Buy and I saw that Fallout 76 for Windows actually had a physical copy that will allow me to stack GCU, the promo code, and get a $10 cert. But I’ve never ordered a “physical” Windows game from Best Buy. Am I correct in assuming it’s just a Steam code in a box?

Yeah it's just a code in a box, but fallout 76 is not going to be on steam. Its a key for Bethesda's own launcher.

Thanks, good to know. Would prefer Steam but as long as there are no discs involved I am happy.

Is Best Buy going to be taking more pre-orders for the Smash Ultimate Special Edition or did I miss my chance?

It appears to be back in stock again.

When I click pre-order it just says This item is currently unavailable for online purchase. The item was not added to your cart.

 

Thanks for the heads up though.

Project Highrise: Architect's Edition now comes with a $10 egift card with preorder.

 

https://www.bestbuy....s=960&keys=keys

 

$39.99 each (Switch, PS4, and XB1).

 

$31.99 if you still have GCU.  Throw in the $10 gift card and its not a bad deal especially if you were thinking of ordering the game anyway.

Interesting. This is only for physical copies I presume?

Could anyone clarify to me if the $10 coupon I will be receiving from trading is NOT what the bestbuy refers to as $10 reward certificate. So in other words, I'm getting $20 off if I preorder the game?

WOW! This needs a thread of its own! I would have missed out if i wasn't bored at working just reading through the threads. Thanks!

It looks to be the same at Madden discount, you get a $10 off coupon to use when you make your purchase, so you could get the $10 cert and $10 off, PLUS 20% off if you still have GCU. I think this is the last GCU game i can get before mine expires ;-(

Sounds like that is one way to get rid of that free copy of Destiny everyone was getting with their orders a few weeks ago.

Thank you!! Maybe you can make pre-orders on the games you want before your GCU expires. I believe someone reported a while back that if you pay for games as a preorder full price using GCU, then they are fixed at that price when the order is shipped or picked up even if your GCU expired by the time of the release.

Thank you!! And no even if GCU expire you can still get the discounted games. I believe someone reported a while back that if you pay for games as a preorder full price online using GCU, then they are fixed at that price when they ship or pickup

This coupon is in store only and your GCU has to be active when you pickup a in store preorder since you only but down a deposit and not paid for like online.

Good call. I’m not sure if my GCU will be active at pickup time.

#1256 Touch3  

Posted 22 October 2018 - 03:24 PM

So for the BFV deal you can trade in any game from those listed franchises? Interesting.

I feel like we need a list - battlefront 2 is on their trade in website but not battlefront 1. I would imagine the same for destiny, etc

Traded Evolve for 0.76 cents, but did print out the $10 coupon for BFV, so this will be a great deal with preorder $10 and GCU, similar to the Madden deals.

Traded in Farpoint. Got the coupon, but I'm wondering if I should order BFV for instore pickup since I want it for PC, and for whatever reason, Best Buy rarely if ever keeps PC games in stock.
