Is Destiny 2 eligible for the trade in?

Just noticed a price drop for God of War. $40 pre GCU

SotC is now $20 too. I wonder if God of War and SotC will be cheaper during Black Friday or if I should just buy them now before my GCU expires in two days.

Buy now, don't open, wait and see?

Hmmm... that’s true. Thanks.

I forget that BF ads usually come out pretty early. I’m BB elite so thirty days should be enough time for the ad to come out.

Best Buy eliminated mail-in rebates years ago. ;)


Cool. Thought it might be a discount associated with MS, since it's happening at multiple retailers.

Seems you get $100 off One X or One S with purchase of RDR2. No idea if it's instant savings or mail-in rebate. Says it starts on the 25th- Nov. 3.

My local BB does not have any regular One X left, but they do have the Tomb Raider One X bundles in store, I wonder if those will get $100 off when purchased with RDR2... I might get one if that's the case

I'm pretty sure the $100 off will work with One X bundles. I am also interested in the Tomb Raider one, either now or for BF.

Drive by question:

 

December 2016 I did the VISA checkout promo with Red Dead 2. Can't seem to find the card I used, pretty sure it expired. Any way to change the card and not lose out on the discount? My recollection was that any changes to the order would knock the $25 off $100 promo.

 

Thank you.

Thank you.

Changing payment method will knock off the promo discount. I lost my Best Buy Visa, had to get a new one issued, and it did it. I complain to CSRs on their forums, and they usually give me the discount still. Had to do this a few times since I had so many preordered with that promo.

quiz time :)

If I use a 10% coupon, GCU 20%, and rewards coupon....what order do they discount ?  :???:

I assume rewards, 10% then the GCU.  Since that leads to the least discount.

There's going to be a 2-Day (Fri-Sat) sale with early access starting tonight if anyone wants to stay up. Nothing really worth noting gaming wise. Just some accessories and a few games. Watch Dogs 2 is going to $20 but that's probably what it should be anyway being 2 years old next month. :shame:

Anyone preordered digital games from BB?  Say a game comes out Friday 12am.  If I purchase a digital game at BB, does they send me the code right away or I have to wait for the game to be officially released Friday 12am?

 

Anyone have issues w/ BB Digital at all?

There are pages of bb complaints after the Blops launch. Many people who ordered didn’t get their codes until 10 pm the night before launch.

My Best Buy GCU ends Nov 8th 2018. I believe the Best Buy holiday return policy starts Oct 28 which will extend returns until sometime in January.

i was going to buy all the games that I want on Oct 28 so I get my 20% off from GCU and keep them sealed so I can return them. Then when Black Friday is here, I'll buy the same games but on a most likely bigger discount for BF. Then I can return the games I initially purchased so I keep the new, more discounted copy. I know that GCU does not stack with BF deals, but I believe lots of games will be discounted more than 20% off.

Is there anything wrong with my plan? I have about 8 $60 games I plan on buying for this.

Mine ends on Nov 03rd. I'm sad now...I don't even know what I want. Really don't have the money to preorder anything right now because they take it all up front haha.

It's always such a mess on their site, really hard to decipher what is a deal and what is just their junk marquee scroll telling me what's been selling well. Then they use bullshit like "starting at $9.99" for all the movies I don't care about and jack up the price on ones that would be a deal otherwise. Waiting for actual sales on BF. . .

Is there a limit on how many reward certificates can be used at once? Been saving up and forgot I could make amont default to bigger. Got a lot of 5 an 10 I want to use on a switch.

Most I have used at once was $1000. I don't think they changed it.

Thanks. I was just worried they'd limit the number of certificates, not the amount.  Good to know.

Probably answered a million times but if I pre order a game at Best Buy that comes out after my GCU expires, will I still get the GCU discount when it comes out?

Order online either with a Best Buy gift card or pray that your credit card that doesn’t expire, get physically broken, or stolen. I am going with the Best Buy gift card route.
