A store in my area is good about the stickers on CEs and paper covers. They will just barely peel back the corner of the sticker just enough to attach it to the case/box. Never leaves any residue. But definitely have had that issue in the past.

Online. I ordered a few days ago to lock in the pre order of cyberpunk, just used the chat feature on the website to price match Amazon. Very easy process.


Thanks, I was able to price match walmart

BB chat rep refused to price match Walmart, claiming it's against policy since it's not available for pickup.

Thanks for the heads up on this, grabbed Cyberpunk PS4, Warhammer, and MK 11 PS5. Got the $10 cert for WH, HBO Max 15 days, steelbook for CP2077, used my $5 cert, and got $10 off with price match on MK 11 from Amazon. Whew! That was some work to save a few bucks haha.

 

Now hurry up and release a true PS5 patch CD Projekt!!!!!!

What were you trying to price match?

Haha, guess I didn't make that very clear, Cyberpunk PS4.  Was going to use Amazon as a backup but looks like they bumped the price back up for the PS4 version only, lucky me.

Looks like Amazon bumped the PS4 ver up to $59 while Xbox one ver dropped to $49. I was able to price match the PS4 ver via Bestbuy's chat support earlier this morning before the price change. They told me they generally only PM 1 identical item only, but this time the guy let it slide.

I got credited back $20 total for 2 PS4 Cyber punks and 1 Xbox ver. Plus extra $10 in rewards cert and the bonus steelbook, can't complain with the B2G1 promo!

I hate it when they stick that damn sticker at the front of a game that has a slipcover. I removed it carefully and a tiny part was ripped off as it was attached to the sticker like hell. Amazing

Does anyone know what happens if you exchange one of the games? I bought Immortal as part of this deal, but second guessing before opening. It was not the zero cost game. Will they let me exchange it? Will I be limited to the games in the promo? Or will in store just do an exchange for whatever?

Wondering if anyone can relate to this experience, or if Tyrok might be able to explain what is so difficult here...

So, I got the Ori Switch releases with the B1G150% deal, and chose store pickup. The sequel was ready the night before release, while the first game never updated.

I check inventory online before driving over, and every store in town but my pickup location has the game available. Very odd.

I get there, go to the gaming section, and spot the game in a lockup cage in the department. Tell an associate, who walks it up front to the guy doing pickup orders.

So, the picker can't get it to scan out for the reason I already gave the initial associate, given that I work in retail management myself and it isn't hard to deduce - the game has not been received into their inventory yet.

I'm given the option of canceling the order and re-ringing, which I don't really feel like taking the time to do because of the promo and the two rewards certs I used - it's just less of a hassle for both parties, I figure, so I'm polite and agree to come back later; I'm told to give them a few hours, and come back when I get my email that it's ready.

That was Tuesday. No update whatsoever on Wednesday. I try online chat, as calling the store was fruitless (on hold for half an hour before hanging up) to explain what's going on, and they say that they don't have any copies and that they could cancel my order if I wish. I just told then no thanks, I'll try back today.

What I don't get, is how hard is it to just go grab the batch of Ori, and get whatever computer or scanner is needed, and receive them so they show up in physical inventory and thus my order can be completed? I could change the pickup location, sure, but this is the closest store, and they already have the other title pulled and being held.

At this point I've wasted a trip to the store and roughly 20 minutes of waiting just to be told it's easier if I come back, which wasn't so bad. Then, half an hour on hold with no answer, and half an hour wasted chatting with an online rep, and now nearly 48 hours since my initial visit to the store with no update.

I know it's a crazy year, a crazy time of of year, and it's just two relatively inexpensive games...but what am I missing? If anything, the associates in store were probably shocked at how calm, cool and polite I was about it all - like I said, I work in retail so I get it. Just seems a little ridiculous...just receive the product, and it's done.

Yes, sounds like the order is in limbo because they let you make it based on stock they expected that the store would have already scanned in by this point. Not really something that's just going to fix itself until someone buys a copy and they notice the total is now -1.

If you return or exchange any of the games, the system will automatically charge you for the free game.

So what if I give the game as a gift? Then that person wants to exchange it? BestBuy will just tell them no?

That has a good chance of working. You'd get a gift card you could then use.  Just don't use the free one.

Does anyone can get 3 steel books at the store when ordering 3 cyberpunk ?

This one worked out great for me. Cyberpunk (price match and preorder bonus) + Immortals (price match) + free Pathless. Got gifts of COD (price match) and free Fifa, net myself a copy of DMC5 in the process. Saved $30 in price matching while still getting 2 free games.

If anyone got immortals in their B2G1 order I was just able to price match it for $39.99 as it's a deal of the day today at best buy. Makes this deal even more amazing, ended up with cyberpunk (steel book and $10 bonus), immortals, and the pathless for $89.98.

How do you return all 3 games at once online? Can you only do it once game at a time, meaning I'll have 3x packages? 

 

I'm annoyed BB promised a Dec 10th delivery and on the 12th, updated the delivery date to today (and they were actually delivered). I want to return games (esp since it seems like Cyberpunk 2077 runs like ass on the last gen console) to their warehouse so they eat the return shipping costs for the BS delivery date.

I'll give the stores the benefit if the doubt. The shipping companies are overwhelmed right now and promising dates they cannot meet.

Currently reaching out to the live chat. I got Mortal Kombat AND Immortals, so thats a $40 difference there lol

 

EDIT: Guy said both were eligible to price match, waiting to hear back

 

EDIT 2: Said it was processed and sent me a case ID, waiting to get an email or see it reflect on my Order Details

 

EDIT 3: Just got two emails for 21.40 credits being applied to the order. Pretty damn happy they didn't even say anything about Cyberpunk still being free, plus getting the Steelbook and $10 credit ontop of it

I got another $10 back. They did know I had a previous price match. Still a great deal.

Glad I checked this thread. Just got $21 back just for MK11, which almost seems wrong to me but I'll take what I can get. This ended up being a great deal.

Been at a few best buys and the ones they had in store were all the same as the one I got in the mail. Not sure what regional variation actually is
