[Best Buy] BestBuy: Get $5 off pre-orders + 800 RZ points (worth $10)

http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/category/pr ... f6ed77en01

Part of the Victoria Day Online Sale (ending 10 am tomorrow), but worth pointing out on its own that you can get your pre-orders for about $45.

You'll get the $5 off in the cart, and then the 800 RewardZone points when it ships. Unless Wal-Mart goes back to selling the occasional new release for $40, this is about as good as it gets. No harm in putting the order in (your credit card doesn't get charged until it ships), and then cancelling it if there's a sale somewhere else on release day.

better to just wait for their usual 10% off sales which happen a few times per year as you'll get a bigger discount...

Hey, I ordered Mortal Kombat a few months back during a Best Buy sale.

How long does it take for my Rewards points to show up in my account?
Hey Pepsi, thanks for the free 360!

Should be 30 days later...it's basically ymmv in terms of them crediting it automatically, but if you call and mention that you should've gotten them, you'll get the points.

I can't remember a time with the combined 10% and RZ points - when was the last one? I must've missed it.

In any case, I just put in POs for my new release must-haves: NHL 12, Arkham City, and Uncharted 3. It'll only take a few clicks to cancel that order if something better comes along.

April 22nd. I picked up Battelfield 3, Fear 3 and Brink for 10% off plus the 800 rz points.

Meh 10% off of $60 is like $6 which is one subway meal. I can eat one less meal. Plus, there's always that 30 day price match guarantee.

P.S. My comment may or may not apply to any game that is NOT Diablo 3.

child of eden. is discounting to $10 off. however the msrp is $49 where as bestbuy has it at $59. if bestbuy adjusts price will the discounts still remain effectively making the game $39 or will they become void?
