The point requirements to level up are insane.
funny you mention this, I got my Onyx card today

I brought back 4 games for 4 copies, CSR told me I'd get around 700 points:
- 80 bonus for preordering
- 200 for the new games
- 400 for the trade-in

In fact I'm surprised we're not all Onyx in here, y'all are scheming to get deals all the time

I do it with every game I preorder from EB Games.

I have not been banned, nor has the manager said anything when I do it. In fact, they told me it's perfectly fine and one of the main benefits of my Onyx card.

It's been almost four years now.
Exactly. It's one of the biggest attractions/benefits to their membership. They wouldn't promote it the way they do if the end result was for everyone to get banned. The whole "banning" thing is BS.

I'm the same, I buy everything digital and since they don't allow digital preorders yet. I preorder the physical copy to get the free bonus or trade some stuff in. I'll try the game then return it and get xbox or playstation money to buy it digitally, if it's good if not I'll save the digital money for something else. Gonna 100% do this with FC:ND.
There's no such thing as too many games.

It's because 12k is still A LOT of points. Like you took advantage of the best $ value trade-in deal they've had in awhile (not talking game quality, specifically that you could get up to 5x base tiv for a game) by buying 4 copies and still only walked out with 680 points. That's still barely 5% of the way to Onyx.

Does the clock start when you pick up the game or the date it comes out? I was thinking of picking it up tomorrow afternoon, binging on it for the weekend and then returning it on Monday.

Just trying to make sure people get the truth, rather than fear mongering. If you disagree, please share with me someone that has been banned.

Here's my proof:
I've been an Onyx Edge member for about 4 years now, and I Edge Guarantee a lot of games.

You are allowed to use Edge Guarantee once per purchase. If EB could not afford to offer this, they wouldn't. If a game sucks, or if I get all I'm going to get out of it within 10 days, it goes back and I get something else.

Yeah you do have to wonder how much money they lost (and are still going to lose I guess) on Fallout 76, and it's not like they can get help from Bethesda for it.

Gotta wonder if a single game will enact from hard policy changes.

I got my copy, the game looks fun so I'm just going to play it. Anyone tried to move the credit or get a refund yet?

If I don’t pick up the game, can I use the credits towards another game or use it online?

The rep said no to both. Told me i can’t do that. If you don’t pick up after weeks of preordering, we will release your game and give you back $10.

Not sure what you're asking.

You can't use credit towards online no, but you can swap preorders even after game releases.

I have no idea what information you got, I have never heard of $10 back.

I asked the rep if I can swap with another game like Jump force

and he said no. you cannot do that. If you dont pick up far cry within the time frame, we will sell that game and only give you $10 back for trading in the xenoverse dbz game

Just return the game under the satisfaction guarantee and you’ll get a $50 credit.

You can just exchange it for something else.
