MHW for PS4 now had DLC and steelbook adding to cart at bestBuy

add to my dilemma of scorpio graphics vs Aloy dlc + possible other excluxives

Anyone know if Best Buy would ship both the Steelbook and game together?  Really worried about my copy coming damaged if I decide to order it because of those shitty ass bubble mailers they use.

They have consistently shipped the steelbook and game separately for me in similar situations in the past.  Sometimes they use a bubble mailer and sometimes they use a box, it really varies.  I think I've only had one steelbook show up damaged which is lucky compared to the multiple steelbooks I have received damaged from them when I order movies and they ship them in that brown glue mailer.

If you're worried about shipping damage, I would select store pickup.

store pickup all the way.  they don't care to package steelbooks at all.  My Tekken 7 looked like the mailman beat it with a baseball bat.

And with store pickup, if they hand you a messed up one, you can instantly ask for another.

Thanks for the replies.  I normally order like 3 copies of the same game to make sure they are shipped in a box.  Might just bite the bullet this time and do Store Pickup like you all mentioned.

Other than the statue being so dark, I really like it.  I would like it even more if I can get the $30 back. :)
 
EDIT - And now I like it even more. ;)

Thanks for mentioning this. I didn't realize they allowed price adjustments within 30 days of purchase. $32.25 back in my pocket.

I just ordered Mario Kart 8 for Switch with the free steelbook. Best Buy shipped them both in a box together. But I have received other items in an order separate before as well as in a bubble mailer. I have had no damage on items in a bubble mailer, but damage on boxed items. It still happens in both circumstances. Just the luck of the draw.

I know this looked down upon but any chance I can buy a copy of monster hunter world for the steelbook and just return the game? The reason why I am asking is because I am getting the monster hunter edition PS4 which comes with a copy of the game. No need for two copies of the game.

Nope, it will ring as a bundle in store and you will need to return both to get your money back.

Or you know, sell the spare on eBay or Craigslist like normal people would. Better yet, you could even sell to/buy it for a friend if they dont care for the SB.

You may be able to buy the Steelbook separately at Best Buy. They may assign it a high value though, so it might not be worth it. The Mario Kart one cost $59.99 separately from the game, but there have been others that cost $20 to $30 on their own. Also, Amazon Germany was selling it separately, but I think they're sold out.

You can buy the steelbook from Amazon.de for around $15 shipped.

YMMV. Whenever I've changed my mind on a game that came with a steel, they've taken it back sans the SB NP.

Some stores will let you return stuff without a receipt for store credit. Not BB, but there probably are some that carry video games that will do it.

Best Buy will usually ship the items separately, at least in my experience, and therefore, each item will have a different invoice.  Chances are, if you order online, you could return the game and keep the Steelbook for free. But if you buy in store, they will all be on the same transaction.

I had this happen recently with South Park: The Fractured But Whole.  They shipped the beanie and game separately, with two different invoices.  I went to price match the game, and the associated returned it, sans beanie, and I didn't get charged.  Same thing happened with Overwatch and that metal license plate they gave away.  Try it and see what happens.

Then sell the extra copy on Amazon.   You're not entitled to the Steelbook if you don't want the game, and return fraud doesn't help anything.

Agree 100%, have had this discussion here before however there are some immoral in here who think otherwise. They'll stick their heads out.

I typically sell the game to GameStop. With GCU and Elite, it's almost a wash. I did this with Mario Kart to get the SB from BB, then sell the game to GS and actually made a little bit due to the extra 70% bump.

There is no chance for return fraud.  BB bundles the two items and if you try to keep one they will deduct that item's value from the refund.

There's a chance BB will lower the price of the steelbook to $9.99 shortly after release. They did it before a few times with steelbooks.

There’s also a chance they’ll charge $59.99 for the Steelbook like with MK8

Price error by $10. In Amazon fashion they just kill the page. Assuming it goes through or cancellations will arrive whenever the release date is decided. 

 

Personally I'm a fan of the DB FighterZ CE Statue. It looks sick but I'm canceling my pre-order. Beta's fun but not $140 fun. I'll be playing it on PC instead. Reason is because I've got 3 different pre-orders for Monster Hunter World which releases on the same day. The CE, controller by itself, and the PS4 Pro bundle.
