If I cancel my pre-order will I still get my points?

If you cancel pre-orders made between June 17 and December 31, 2016, you will not receive the 10x bonus offer for that title. If you cancel some of your pre-orders (but not all of them), you will still get your 25x or 10x points (depending on when you pre-ordered) when the game is released.

 

What if my pre-order releases after December 31, 2016? Do I still get my points?

Yes! Even if the game ships well into the future, you still get your 25x or 10x points (depending on when you pre-ordered) when the game is released.

 

What about my existing pre-order titles? Do I get my points if they release before December 31, 2016?

The 25x and 10x points offers are valid only during E3 2016. Existing pre-orders are not eligible. However, you may cancel your existing pre-order and re-order during the E3 period. If you do so, any previous promotional pricing on the pre-order will be lost.

 

I’m getting an error in cart that my credit card is expired when trying to pre-order, but my credit card is still valid. What’s going on?

Since pre-order games release in the future and we don’t charge you for the game until it releases, our checkout doesn’t accept credit cards that expire before the release date of the game. You have two options to work around this:

  • Pre-order in-store: You will need to put a $10 deposit down for the game, and the balance owed will be paid when you pick up the game in-store after the game releases.
  • Pay using PayPal on BestBuy.ca: You can use your existing credit card through PayPal, or another payment method of your choice that is connected to your PayPal account. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can sign up for one during checkout. After completing your transaction, please update your credit card information as soon as possible.

 

Do I have to pay for the games when I order them?

 

Online: No, you will have to add your payment details when you check out, but you won’t be charged until each game is ready to ship. It does not matter if the games are released at different times.

 

In-store: We require a $10 deposit for each game at the time of pre-order, which is fully refundable. The balance remaining will then be due at time of pick-up when the game comes out.

 

Why are so many of the release dates set for December 31?

This is just a placeholder date; all games will be updated with the actual release dates once our vendor partners have provided us with full details.

 

Are Collector’s Edition and Special Edition games included in the 25x promo?”

Yes Collector’s Edition and Special Edition included in the 25x promo and the 10x level up.

Re: E3 2016: Get 25x Reward Zone™ Points on Pre-Order Games

So instead of just straight % or dollars off we get coupons that will be given AFTER  the game ships has an expiration date and cannot be used online. 

 

 

Awesome.

Re: E3 2016: Get 25x Reward Zone™ Points on Pre-Order Games

I'm not sure if I prefer this or last year's 20% off with the coupon codes. While the coupon codes last year were definitely a major problem, there was the advantage of getting the money directly discounted from the game. This year is close, but still not back up to the 30% discount mark from years past and that competitor last year because we're still being charged tax on the increased price rather than a discounted price (not to mention the increase in game prices by about 30% over the past couple of years, which is still an increase even though it was due to the falling dollar). The advantage though is that it applies to collector's editions as well, which the previous discounts often did not. I'm still going to see what's offered from competitors though, since reward zone certificates are still difficult to deal with, and not much use if the majority of your purchases are pre-order video games online from E3 deals.

Bonus Offer: 10x Points for Reward Zone™ Gamers Club

If you pre-order video games during June 10-16, 2016 you will qualify for the 10x bonus Reward Zone™ points level up. You will receive 10x points on all video game purchases from June 17, 2016 to December 31, 2016.

 

 

With regard to this paragraph. Does this mean game purchases between Jun 10th-16th will be 35x (25 + 10) or 250x (25 x 10) the reward points?

Re: E3 2016: Get 25x Reward Zone™ Points on Pre-Order Games

Hi Laura, just want extra clarification even if the text is straightforward

 

What about my existing pre-order titles? Do I get my points if they release before December 31, 2016?

The 25x and 10x points offers are valid only during E3 2016. Existing pre-orders are not eligible. However, you may cancel your existing pre-order and re-order during the E3 period. If you do so, any previous promotional pricing on the pre-order will be lost.

 

So any game you buy after the E3 period is eligible for 10x the points. So for example, if a game that wasn't announced during E3 was instead announced in October and has a release date in November, that game will get me 10x points?

[ Edited ]

@LoveLightning, from the way the post reads, the 10x points is only available if you pre-order a qualifying game during the E3 promotional period.

Basically, pre-order one game now that qualifies for the 25x points offer, and ANY game you pre-order or buy for the rest of the year will net you 10x the normal rewards points.

Hope that clears things up!

@Cyberpik, you will receive 25x points for qualifying games during the E3 promotion. Provided you pre-order at least one title during this period, any pre-order or purchase made on or after 17 June will get you 10x the rewards points.

TL;DR - until 16 June, get 25x points on qualifying pre-orders. After 16 June, get 10x rewards points until 31 Dec provided you get a qualifying game from the E3 promotion.

Re: E3 2016: Get 25x Reward Zone™ Points on Pre-Order Games

Hi @Cyberpik

 

The 10x multiplier is for after E3 if you pre-ordered something during E3 (June 10 to 16).

 

 

Hi @LoveLightning

 

If you pre-ordered something during E3, you get the 10x multiplier for the rest of the year. So, under that scenario, yes you would get 10x the points.
