Transaction posted on my rewards history for Tomb Raider but does not show the $10 preorder bonus. Anyone?

Same still no $10 point bonus, from what I see on the forums they're telling everyone to wait the 25-30 days...

Same. Mine shows my pending points from the purchase but not the 500 bonus. BB really screwed up this release if these points don’t post without having to ask them

It will show up eventually. I've never not gotten the 500 bonus. Sometimes they're late in adding it. My steel book version arrived damaged (shipped in a envelope) and I cant exchange it without losing the bonus :(

So, having pre-ordered tomb raider steelbook on June 11...I only got 46 reward points? Not showing anything pending. Is that normal and I'll get the rest or do I need to investigate with CS rep? I've never preordered/ gotten a $10 bonus...

It takes 15-20 days after release to process. Most times, it's sooner.

Thank you! Just seemed weird I was given that number of points without any indication of anything else pending.

I've been buying my games at BB for over two years when I discovered GCU and I have always gotten the 10 bucks eventually. Sometimes quickly sometimes after a month but I've always gotten it. It almost never shows up until after the return period has ended.

Meh. Someone tried to use my card at a gas station across town and now all the games I preordered before my GCU ran out are screwed. Oh well, should have paid upfront with Paypal. :-({|=

I called BB 3 days ago about the $10 for tomb raider and the rep said she deposited the points and they'll appear in 24-48 hours.  As of this post they're still not there and nothing is pending still.  So I have no clue what's going on.

Don’t know if it’s been noted but there’s a free steelbook with fallout. In case anyone’s on the fence with the 15 back promo ending tonight

I went to check my progress on $10 SOTR and I can't even see any purchase points since July, will have to contact support.

Picked up fifa 18 (switch) for $13.63 with the instore pickup discount and GCU and traded it back in for $14.78 plus the $10 off coupon for fifa 18. Since the coupon is for in-store only I did a pre-order instore and only put $5 down, hopefully this works all out and I get the game for $37.99 + tax and $10 in points.

It'll be $39.99.

 

Coupon comes off first, then GCU. Still a good deal!

Anyone know if both the Super Smash Ultimate Console Bundle and the game can be preordered for two 10 dollar certificates using the same account?

No, one per account per title.

That is what as me thinking about either PayPal or taking the 2 times points hit and buy a Best Buy gift card to cover my preorders for when my GCU expires October 30th. I also could use my Best Buy Visa Credit Card since I don’t use it outside of Best Buy since Citi doesn’t support Samsung Pay or Apple Pay with it.

contacted CS and they said SOTR might take a few weeks, that sucks.

I just took the hit and bought virtual BB giftcards to pay games off. The BB points you earn are so minimal at this point and since GCU is going away I didn't see the harm. That being said I was lucky to transfer a lot of GS credit to BB so I used giftcards on most of my games and just bought some to make up the $5 difference here or there.

 

Gonna probably buy a lot of giftcards to preorder things when my GCU runs out next September. That or hope to keep this trade to GS then convert to BB train rolling.

Mine is good until Oct. 25 of next year. I will probably either hit Amazon more or hold off on games more after that.

Still no cert for Tomb Raider for me as well. I am giving them until Friday and then I will be giving them a call. I have had to contact Best Buy to receive my certs several times in the past, so this doesn't surprise me. At least my GCU goes through the end of November 2020...really hoping they don't kill accounts early.

Damn, nice job. Since the points bonus only gets me to $43 after tax, I think I'll have to wait until BF to pick up FIFA 19.
