Holy frijoles! I came across this epic deal browsing around the Best Buy Community forums:
Receive a $100 Reward Zone Certificate when Gamers Club members preorder and purchase any 5 games.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Reward Zone Gamers Club, let me explain. The Gamers Club is free to join and linked to your Best Buy Reward Zone card (also free). For every $150 you spend on games you get $10 back in the form a Best Buy Reward Zone certificate that can be used much in the same way that you can use a gift card. Gamers Club offers work in conjunction with the standard Reward Zone offers in which you earn a $5 certificate for every $250 spent at Best Buy. So if you order $300 in games you’ll receive $25 in Reward Zone certificates ($5 from the standard Reward Zone and $20 from Gamers Club)
This offer couldn’t have come at a better time. Have you seen the line-up of games coming out this year!? Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Uncharted 3, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Gears of War 3, Modern Warfare 3, RAGE!, and Battlefield 3 are all included in the preorder deal.
Not only do you get a $100 Reward Zone certificate but you’ll also get whatever other offers are associated with the preorders, including but not limited to, free DLC, additional preorder Reward Zone certificates (typically $10) and in-game gear (like that flaming Halo helmet everyone loved so much).
So lets do the math:
- If each game is roughly $60: For 5 games you’re looking at $300 total spent
- You get an automatic $20 for having spent $300 in games per the Gamers Club rewards
- If each of the 5 games has a pre-order bonus of $10 that’s another $25 in rewards
- Add in another $5 for spending $250
- Finally add the $100 for the special preorder deal
That’s $150 dollars in Reward Zone certificates for spending $300! Think of how many other games you can buy with $150 in free money!
Silver Reward Zone members (those that have spent $2,500 in one calender year) and those with a Reward Zone MasterCard can expect to earn even more in rewards.
This is an offer I will definitely be taking advantage of and I suggest everyone else do the same. It’s unlikely anyone else will offer a deal this good.
