"Get 10" pre-order bonus no longer a thing?

As far as I can tell, the new Final Fantasy game was the last game to receive this pre-order offer. No new games were added since much earlier this year. I'm pretty surprised because pre-orders for games like Mass Effect: Andromeda and Horizon: Zero Dawn are already up, so I would think these titles would get the $10 reward certificate bonus. Has it been discountinued?

Re: "Get 10" pre-order bonus no longer a thing?

Hi there ajm268-

 

As we round out another year of great game releases, inevitably, the question comes up: what can we expect from next year and what titles will be part of the My Best Buy “Get $10” program?

 

While nothing is certain, I expect that we’ll continue this program, which is immensely popular into the New Year.  However, at this time, no titles have been decided on, though you’ve named several good examples of titles that would be nice to have in the promotion.

 

I would recommend keeping an eye on our FAQ here or the Get $10 page on BestBuy.com here for the latest updates.  Certainly once we know, we’ll do our best to let our gamers know as well!

 

Thanks for posting!

$10 Pre Order Bonus

Good Afternoon,

 

I was just checking on the $10 pre order bonus. I clicked on the page where it said to shop eligible titles and don't see any pre orders that are eligible for this. Is there just not anything currently available for this promotion?

Re: "Get 10" pre-order bonus no longer a thing?

I'm so glad that someone asked this question.  I just went to Bestbuy.com in hopes that For Honor would be on the $10 pre-order bonus list as it's a HUGE upcoming title for all major consoles.  To my dismay it seems that there are no games on the list at the moment.

 

If I pre-order the game now and it is added to the list at a later date is it safe to assume that I will still be granted the $10 rewards bonus?

 

I'm really hoping that new games will be added very shortly.  Others on my list are also Mass Effect Andromeda, Horizon Zero Dawn, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and some others.

 

Please let the Best Buy execs know that customers are asking that this amazing pre-order incentive be continued indefinitely.

 

Thank you!

Bix

Hi Bix33,

 

I'm glad to hear you're gaming with Best Buy. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our popular "Get $10" promotion.

 

We've run this promotion for the last 4 plus years, and I expect we'll have more in the coming year as well. There are many pieces and partners that come into play when lining up our promotions for a coming year, and it can take some time to get everything finalized. Please keep an eye out on BestBuy.com and our Gamers Club forum for any updates as they become available.

 

Game on,

Thanks Mike!  Hopefully some big, new games are added VERY soon.  As you probably already know the early 2017 game lineup is pretty huge!

I doubt this promotion will be continued, considering they cut the points per dollar spent in half this year. And as stated, the last game to receive bonus was ffxv. Essentially the list has not updated since around October. I imagine it will soon disappear off the website soon with little to no explanation.

Re: 2016 games that had $10 Reward Certificate for pre-ordering?

Millions (including myself) are waiting for the games to show up for this offer.

Re: 2016 games that had $10 Reward Certificate for pre-ordering?

Perssonally I only normally one for sure make a pre-order if there is the $10 rewards. However, it is my belief that the $10 reward is not something conrolled by Best Buy but by the game distribuor or developer.

 

Combine the $10 with the 20% discount and we have the best game deal around right here.

It was the best deal around, but it won't be anymore unless this deal continues. I have games I wanted to preorder but have been holding off to see if this will be offered. So far no luck.
