I'm confused what code were they supposed to send for TD2? I know the capital defender pack code was in the case but didn't know I was missing something as I also haven't received a code via email

According to the link below the only preorder bonuses from Best Buy were the $10 reward certificate and the Capital Defender pack. The Capital Defender pack was pictured on the cover of my gold edition. I’m guessing it’s not even a preorder bonus. More like an early purchase bonus.

Definitely haven't seen the points for preordering The Division 2 pending yet for my game that was delivered last Friday. Anyone else running into that?

Mine is not showing up either. Talked to BB chat and said they were looking into it whatever that means.

I just spent an hour on online chat and they insisted everything was fine and I need to wait 15-20 days. Totally ignored how every other game with this offer when pre-ordered more than 14 days before release had the points post next day after pickup/delivery.

Yeah 500 points plus whatever you paid for should be there but it's not for Div 2 for some odd reason.

Similar to the doom and gloom of people non-stop complaining about no games on this list, you will endlessly see posts about "wait for E3."

And that always ends up being correct.

Rage 2 is also offering a credit as we have discussed over the last page or two. 

 

After E3 a bunch more games will also offer $10 rewards.

As I wait for the Division 2 rewards bomus 500 I was reading the terms

“For each qualified purchase, receive 500 My Best Buy points (worth $10 in reward certificates) credited to account approximately 15–20 days after street date or store pickup.”

So they either changed that or were just more willing to send the points earlier previously. Waiting sucks because I want to use the $10 here plus another $10 I am saving for Sekiro, but honestly it can wait.

I think certain games are just screwed up or handled differently.  I had to wait 21 days for my Super Smash Bros Ultimate $10 reward to post automatically  (and it posted as its own entry in my rewards) but my Kingdom Hearts 3 $10 bonus posted the day before my game even shipped (and posted in my Rewards history when I preordered the game 6 months previously and not as its own entry).  Sounds like The Division my be one that takes a while to post.

agreed, anthem came through right away, but division 2 doesn't even show pending, had to email CS, its a pain and every game is different.

It’s always been 15-21 days. And I can’t speak for others, but I’ve almost always have had to wait that long to have my points posted.

My experience has been pretty much the opposite.  Most $10 rewards appear right away with a few taking the full 21 days to show up.

It’s 15 days otherwise people can return the game and keep the points to spend.

If you preorder months in advance and it's in there system, the points will post immediately. Otherwise you will have to wait 14 days. Some games they have to post add the points, why they don't show up as pending in anyone's account. I have never not eventually had my bonus points added.

As for spending points and returning, it will put your account in a negative balance.

It's totally possible to spend the points and return the game. You will just go into the negative when they take them back. ;)

Wish MLB the show 19 was on this list, I think last year they did the coupon trade in deal like madden, but I haven't seen it yet!
