Bring Back The Victory Can Be Pre-Ordere​d Promo

Best Buy should Bring Back The Victory Can Be Pre-Ordered Promo instead of using the current $10 model it downgraded to. This Year alone many major retailers in the last few months have had distinctly higher pre-order bonus's such as double what best buy is offering and sometime even more then double. Now with The New Generation of game systems and games out now and more to come, the beginning of that system life cycle can be very important for a retailer to want to use and attract upgrading gamers and new gamers to your stores. I have made some comparisons below of some examples of games best buy have and has had preorder bonus's on compared to other retailers bonus's so my point can be seen.

 

Watch Dog

  • Best Buy = $10
  • Kmart= $20
  • Dell = $25
  • Microsoft Store $15

Elder Scrolls Online

  • Best Buy = $10
  • Kmart = $20

Destiny

  • Best Buy = $10
  • Kmart = $20

 

TitanFall

  • Best Buy = $10
  • Dell = $25
  • Kmart = $20

 

Wolfenstein: The New Order

  • Best Buy = $20
  • Dell = $25
  • Kmart = $20

Now Best Buy didnt even offer a $10 Pre order Bonus to begin with For The Wii U Game "MARIO KART 8" but instead offered $10 Gas Card late in the game while your competitors offered: Dell $25 and Kmart $20.

 

And those are just examples of some the comparisons. As you can see from the Comparison Best Buy has not once had the Highest Pre-Order Bonus since they downgrounded to the current $10 model. And Those Same Retailers are also offering those same large amount pre-order bonus's on more selection of games then best buy currently is right now as well as they also allow coupons and discounts to stack on top of those pre-order bonus's

What makes it seem even worse bsides the fact that it used to be 20 for a lot of Games is that some of these games at least Watch Dogs for sure has the Season Pass for 20 dollars so If you pre-ordered at Dell or Kmart I bet it clicked in the head of more then one gamer that it would be like getting the Season Pass for free witch would be a great reason to pre-order.

The 20% off(-$12) & $10 credit is more value than the $20 pre-order alone $22 vs $20. The only way I`d see the $20 bump is if they restricted the $20 to paid GCU members or if they offered another daily credit incentive.

@enuf 

It might be slighlty more, but you need to be GCU paid to get that %20 off correct? Last time I preordered at Kmart you just had to have one of their free rewards cards.
