Subject: An invitation from Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly.
Over the past year, Best Buy has been on a journey to transform itself into the kind of retailer that you, your friends and your family would want to shop for technology products and services. We believe we have begun to make progress on this journey and want to take this opportunity to invite you to visit our stores.
To inspire you to see for yourself how we are changing, please accept this offer to save $10 on any purchase you make by December 24, 2013 on BestBuy.com or in one of our stores. If you like what you find, let us know by writing to [email=""]CEO@bestbuy.com[/email]. If you do not, let us know too!
Just got the email with a unique code, expires 12/24/13. I am Elite plus until 2015. I have never received any promo certificate, this is the first ever that I recall. Let the conspiracy conspiracies begin...

I'm usually not a flipper. The temptation was great, though, so I set up an eBay and PayPal this morning after work (I work nights). Sold my Amazon pre-order as a Buy It Now within an hour to another user with 0 feedback. Contacted about 2 hours ago (a little before I woke up) to please cancel the transaction due to "issues with PayPal."
Don't think I'll try again. A minute after I got the item sold email I started worrying hardcore about the possible horror situations. It's one thing if someone with 500 positive feedback buys it. But that's not terribly likely since I have 0 feedback. I can't afford to lose the $400. I'll probably be cancelling my Amazon pre-order in the morning. Not worth all the worry.
Good, you deserve it. Anyone who sells a preorder is scum.
Know what I did with my preorder when I changed my mind on a launch PS4 from amazon? I canceled it.

Ugh. Out of shelf space AND HDMI ports (that's with a HDMI piggyback) for my PS4.
That was another issue for me and a decision to cancel my launch PS4. My receiver has three HDMI inputs and they're maxed right now. PS3, Xbox 360, Apple TV.

It could be the "circumventing of regional pricing" thing
This, also don't see them reversing anything.
If you're referring to me, at no time did I ever change regions or download games, only used the free month link on xbox.com.

I bought Shin Megami Tensei IV day one, full price, $50. That's extremely rare for me, I'd rather wait for a sale, but it was a 'limited edition' and had a $30 Nintendo shop credit off, so I bit. Plus gamestops around me only received preorder copies, none were on sale to the public. One month later they restocked the 'limited edition' and I still copies laying around at all stores.
I want this game, I do. But I'm not naive enough to think its rare.

Interesting how you initiate name calling. I don't recall us chatting before, how do you even remember my posts?
You're absolutely right, I should have immediately offered to ship it to him. Should have offered to pay shipping as well, it's what you would have done, right?
A quick check on ebay shows it's gone for around $30, give or take. I doubt anyone here would be willing to pay that just for a game case, or have you forgotten the name of the site? The only time I've seen one of these in the Market was in a lowball, and it went for just a few bucks. And if he really wants it there's always pm's, I'd be happy to sell it to him if he likes, though I'm always hesitant to sell to someone with 0 feedback. Besides, at the point I posted that it was just an idle thought, I'd have to do a bit more research to see what I could actually get for it. I just want that OoT soundtrack to match the Majora's Mask I just ordered. I've always thought you were a bit of an idiot, and you never fail to reinforce the notion.
I was merely pointing out your initial reply to a member saying they wanted something, you immediately mentioned "let's see how much money I can make". I belong to numerous forums for various things. Art, movies, cycling, cars, etc. I can guarantee you any time on any other forum if I ever said "hey guys I could use some help" I would have replies offering anything they can. Yet here, which tends to be a younger crowd, is the hoarding, scalping, glutinous mindset. Just an observation of a member here for 10+ years. Even here, when club Nintendo year end came around, I spent hours here PM'ing around 50 members just so people didn't miss platinum. Could I have sold codes? Absolutely. Did I ask for anything or accept anything in return? No.
One day you'll get to a point in your life when someone's happiness is much more important than making a few bucks.

No, it wasn't delayed. I picked up a copy at Barnes and Noble on Tuesday. I plan to just return the Amazon copy back to B&N whenever it shows up (since Amazon is $10 cheaper).
Something interesting happened with my order. I've received two emails from Amazon refunding me money for the preorder price guarantee, however, the book hasn't even shipped. So apparently, Amazon CS is so friendly, they're now refunding money that they haven't even charged yet!
I picked this up from B&N last night, as well as the three new hardcover comics. Price was $19 in store since there are various coupons out there right now.
