Pending GCU Expiration

Just had a quick question about the GCU expiring. Mine is set to expire mid-February, if I pre-order some games now (such as Cyberpunk), will I still get the 20% off the game when the game comes out, after the expiration date?

Re: Pending GCU Expiration

Hey there, superline51,

 

This is a great question!  I was looking back through our board to see if we’d answered it before, but wasn’t able to locate one, so I’ll be glad to answer here!

 

Whether you get the discount will depend greatly on if you pre-order in-store, or online at BestBuy.com.  If you pre-order in store, you would not get the discount unless the game releases while your GCU is still active.  This is because you’re only putting a deposit down on the game, and not paying for it until the game releases.  This is true even if you were to put down the deposit in full.

 

With online pre-orders, we authorize the full amount of the purchase, so the pre-order should take into account if your GCU is still active at the time you place your pre-order.  However, should you make any changes to the pre-order, such as changing the payment method, updating your shipping address, or changing from ship-to-home to store pickup, this will cause your order to go through a new verification process. At that time, since your GCU will no longer be active, the discount would not apply to the order.

 

I hope this helps answer your question, but should you have any additional questions or concerns, please let us know!

Sweet, thanks. Time to pre-order a crap load of games.
