Pre-Order From Best Buy A Disaster

I pre-ordered my copy of GTA V about two months ago. Best Buy sent me a notice that they shipped it out on 9/12 via UPS MI but there were no updates on the tracking status until 9/14 and the estimated delivery date is now Thursday. Not only that, I was supposed to get a $10 in reward certificate (500 My Best Buy points) when I pre-ordered the game but I only received 118.

I don't know about other venues (Amazon, GameStop), but I would not recommend getting it from Best Buy.

So I'm sticking with Gamestop who at least knows their shit.
if i want a t.v or shit, i'll go to best buy, but gaming is srs business, i'll go to a dedicated game store.

You're correct. Although if I happen to be AT Best Buy and they have the goods in-store, I have no problems buying there. Their return policy is probably as good as any other place.

When it comes to buying games regularly, or en masse, GameFly is probably one of the best around. I still prefer GF to Steam any day of the week...

I know that feeling man. On the plus side you have a copy headed your way. I have nothing.

I am in no way a "serious gamer", but I have now learned my lesson.

Well, I suppose that it might be about the money.

But that's just a guess.

I'm not worried. I just don't like paying for something and not getting it.

This is not about gaming, it's about a business promising consumers something and not deliver.

I shared this to discourage others buying from Best Buy to avoid potentially dealing with the same BS I'm dealing with now.
