Save a dollar only to have no one at in store pick up, then fumble Fuck around for 20 minutes finding your game. No thanks.

I've never had an experience like that...  Usually there's at least one person manning to the counter and they tend to find my item right away...  I usually do in-store pickup instead of just grabbing it off the shelf because I'm in and out faster than waiting in a regular checkout line...

This is also useful to those of us who need to use in-store pickup because UPS destroys our packages otherwise.

imo its a better deal on if you buy in bulk and buy cheaper games/blurays/dvds. not so much a waste of gas then.

Thanks for the heads up! I did not know this! I'm glad because I live less than a mile away from one, and I like to walk into the store and pick it up as opposed to having it shipped to my house days later. Will be taking advantage of this :)

Just a heads up with this, when shipping Best Buy seems to use the cheapest tax bracket in your state, whereas your local store may be higher. I attempted this on a $48 game and the tax difference was $1 more to pick up in my local store vs. shipping, thus nullifying this bonus.

Is this a joke. It's $1 off. I make $1 every 1.6 minutes at work.

I can't speak for where you live, but in New York, they use the tax bracket of wherever you ship the item. My mom lives in an 8% county and I live in a 7%, and have shipped things to both places, and they adjust the tax accordingly.

Store pickup at the BB by my house is really good.  Right by the front door.  Never had an issue.  The one near my job is over by customer service.  Can always find someone to help but not nearly as nice as having it right at the front door.

If I don't get 5 cents off for my canvas bags at Target I get piiiiiissssssed.

This is cheapassgamer get the Fuck outta here with your humblebrags about your salary. This deal is for us serfs who want the absolute lowest price - even if it's just a dollar less.

The Best Buy closest to my house is like this all the time. Went in there last Friday to pick up Project Cars 2 and waited for 15 minutes only for them to tell me to come back tomorrow since we haven't got it of the order yet. I'll end up going to any other Best Buy before going to that one ever again.

 

Edit: Also I pre-ordered it 3 days before for in store pickup too.

Did they stop this? Just tried South Park and Friday the 13th and the discount didn’t show.

Hmmm weird, so I messed with the Best Buy app a bit and it seems to be an opt-in kinda thing only for me - meaning the offer only activates if I select shipping first and only then does the $1 off indicator appear for in-store pickup. If the order defaults to in-store, there is no discount for me until I swap back and forth between shipping and in-store.

Not trying to combat you on this, but did you get a confirmation? For in-store pickup orders placed online, they notify you when it’s ready to go... not sure if they offer the same service for preorders placed in-store.
