I love that Wacom is excluded, gotta keep those prices high to screw us poor/college level artists over.

If you think post-graduation artists aren't going to be poor, something something bridge something.

What a weird promo. So this morning I ordered and picked up A Few Good Men in 4K. I used a $15 certificate which means I paid just over $10 to cover the rest plus tax. Sounds like I might get a $10 cert back?

 

Edit: wow nevermind. Looks like I missed it by a penny since tax doesn't count.

I got two orders in, but the third keeps getting canceled. And it's something I already ordered once - I got one eshop card and a PSN card, but the second PSN card order always gets canceled after it goes through.

Would Best Buy gift cards work with this promo? I couldn’t find the answer in the OP or fine print.

So do we have to place each order separately or could we order it in one go?

Thats why the smart ones focus in other creative fields and do character art and stuff like that on the side. Also making friends with people who are already in the field and getting good references is a nice way to get your resume/portfolio pushed to the top of the stack.

 

The ones who end up at Starbucks are the ones who refuse to adapt or learn skills that are needed by almost every business/company. (Which almost always seems to be the Character/Gaming related artists). Also the whole rampant introverted/shyness thing doesnt help the community as a whole as far as networking goes.

Needs to be separate orders.

Well said hah yeah I make a good living as an artist. There is such a stigma of the starving artist but those are the super artsy fartsy ones who act like they will die if they do work for a big company. Art is just another marketable skill like anything else and if you are good at it and aren’t stupid you can be very successful especially in today’s current climate with such an emphasis on entertainment.

Yo, a few 15 games on Black Friday are 16 with GCU, Wolfenstein Double pack, Dishonored death of the outsider, Bioshock collection. Time to rebuy and return  :bouncy:

Reordered Bioshock and Dishonored, it was a penny cheaper with the $1 off store pick up, lol. Still have them shrink wrap so return them tomorrow and pick them up again.

Great idea, I just picked up 3 $15 MS cards (lowest denomination available for in-store pickup). 3 orders of course so it looks like I’ll have about $75 to spend toward digital games next year or later on.

Does this actually tell you that you're eligible for the $10 code before completing transaction?

Anything cheap to go with a $9.99 item?

Nope.

This is the most disappointing part of this deal. I wish we at least got an confirmation email stating we qualified for this offer.

 

Bought a $10 Nintendo E-Shop card.

I think they're onto us. After my initial $10 PSN card, all other similar order are being canceled. I even tried buying a $20 PSN card and that was also canceled.

It keeps saying savings code but...there is no code?  There's nothing to enter?

Picked up a $10 eshop code, and a $12 sd card.

 

Might get another eshop code

I think it has to be a single product/transaction valued at $10 or more.

Look at this way there might not be a confirmation. But you have until Jan 31 2018 to return any purchase made between Oct 30th and Dec 25th I think. So if you don't get the bonus promotions..... Return everything

Did my 3 different orders - will pick them up today.  Hopefully no shenanigans on Best Buy's part in a month or so.

be careful suggesting google play gift cards for this promo. if you have to follow up with BB to get your promo credit, the customer service rep has good reason to deny it.

Agreed ... Google Play cards could get denied by customer service ... BBY greasy like 'dat!

Hidden Agenda (PS4) for $11.99 -$1 in-store pickup credit - $10 if-this-actually-happens January credit = 99c + full tax.

 

Seems double-fitting for this offer, since, you know...something is stirring behind the BBY curtain for this offer to exist.

Does this work for B1G1 50% off? Not working for me. 

 

EDIT: Never mind. I now see that I will get a credit in Jan. 

 

Guessing BB is doing this to help its Q4 push. Smart.

Thanks for this. its perfect really. I wanted to get about $30 in eshop money recently and then I get another $30 in January so i can pick up Xenoblade 2 for ~half price and I get to wait to see if they update/fix anything with the game.
