Thanks Glen -

 

One deal you missed at BB. Buy 1 Year Xbox Live Renewal or XBL Starter Kit and get $20 off any of the following titles - Crimson Skies, Rainbow Six 3, Amped 2, Top Spin, NFL Fever 2004, and SWAT. Now technically it says 'any advertised Live game title', and on the same page it has MechAssault, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell advertised under a different heading 'Platinum Hits', but all of those have XBL features - so if you feel bold...

 

I've been wavering over renewing XBL, but this may push me over the edge...

Huh, I just bought an XBL Starter Kit last week at Best Buy too. Wonder if they'll give me the $20 off if I bring in the receipt if/when I buy Crimson Skies this week?

They should as they have a 30 day price match guarantee, and that's definitely a price match :D

Thanks for the post - I felt bold and called their bluff on the "any advertised Live title" and got Ghost Recon (with the non-platinum cover -whew) for FREE!

 

I had the ad with me and was able to point out clearly that it was live compatable - she looked at it for a few minutes and then did it :)

I went to BB this past weekend and picked up a "replacement" copy of RS3 and the Live Renewal card. After much discussion between two of the cashiers, they gave me $20 off the game and a $10 gift card. So, I was able to get RS3 for $29.99 and, subtracting the gift card, the Live renewal for $39.99. Did anybody else get the $10 gift card as well. I'm wondering if this was just a computer error or if it was an advertised deal. Either way, I am not complaining.

Edit: Best Buy has cancelled my order for Skies of Arcadia. Nice of them to do it without even notifying me. I just checked my order page there, and there it is... cancelled. What a bunch of weasels.

Same here. Additionally when I attempt to use their contact form to inquire about the cancelled order I get a send error. I'm eager to see if they provide an explanation.

I got a response back from their "customer care" department and they told me that my information was....

 

Glen,

 

Thank you for contacting Best Buy about your order. I'm Dayna with

Customer Care.

 

We apologize for the difficult experience you had when trying to

order online.

 

Your order has been cancelled for the reason that our verification

could not confirm some of your billing information. Please make sure

all information is matching with what your credit card has on file

for you.

 

Funny, considering I've placed other orders from their site without any issues.....

I got a response from Best Buy on the Skies of Arcadia deal. Here is what they had to say:

 

Thank you for contacting Best Buy about your order. I'm Tom with Customer Care.

 

We appreciate your concern about your order.

 

We regret to inform you that your recent order for Skies of Arcadia: Legends has

been canceled. As this item was discontinued and offered at a clearance price,

it sold out very quickly, thus we no longer have any quantities available.

Unfortunately, we will not receive additional stock of this discontinued item.

 

Thank you for your understanding. Please do not hesitate to contact us with

additional questions or concerns.

 

Best wishes from Best Buy,

Tom and the Customer Care Team

 

At least they didn't tell me that my order information wasn't verifiable. :roll:

 

EDIT: Or that my question was too technical in nature! :lmfao:

I didn't exactly get a $10 gift card, but close enough - I really like Best Buy's math this week :D I picked up Rainbow Six, Live Renewal Kit, and Finding Nemo and made it out of the store for less than $90. They gave me the $20 off, then seemed to just apply the $10 card straight to my purchase, and then somehow another $5 got taken off in the process. :D

I went to Best Buy last night to buy the Xbox "bling bling version" GTA double-pack, and DBZ Budokai for the GC. I used two $5 off gamers coupons, and was very surprised when my cashier scanned a free $10 gift card! When I asked about it, the cashier said it was for anyone spending over $70 or $75 (don't remember exactly) on software. I asked how long this promotion lasts, and she replied it is only through Saturday.

 

Not a bad deal. It means I only paid $10 for the DBZ game! I don't remember reading about this deal in any of their ads, or seeing anything for it in the store. Anyway, my guess is this is why they gave you the gift card, Chris.
