Pre-Order Question

I would like to order the new Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu and would like to use my $50 in best buy rewards on the price of the game ($59.99) can I use them online on a preorder and just pay the difference?

Re: Pre-Order Question

You should  be able to use the $50 reward without an issue.  I think the only stipulation is you cannot use them to cover tax and shipping (if applicable)

 

Just be aware that your credit card will not be charged the balance until just before the game is released.

Thanks Bob! I know some other retailers won’t let you use point and such on preorders so I didn’t want to activate the certs and find out I can’t use them lol

Re: Pre-Order Question

Don't quote me on this but I think the only time you cannot use it is for services, leased items (phones), tax, resale items, commercial purposes, gift cards, payments on Best But Credit card.

I don't know about shipping, as I've been Elite long enough to have forgotten, but you can definitely use RZC to cover tax.

Re: Pre-Order Question

I apologize. I just placed an order using RZC and my total came to $0. I forgot that I had used a GC to cover a little bit of the order, so that was probably what covered taxes. I'm sure you'd know better than I would about the policies. Sorry for the misinformation. <3
