So this is good thru the 23rd? Do I need to take a coupon and are they taking any other games besides Madden 25?

Depending on what state you are in you are required to give at least your thumbprint (Texas requires all 10 fingers now), so you may already have your fingerprint on record (i.e. the only thing you are doing is further confirming your trade-in on a game - Best Buy and your financial records will also reflect this fact.

It could be that your state requires your thumbprint when you get your driver's license (My state does, and there are others) so all that is needed is your Driver's license info and the police would be able to track down you thumbprint in the case that the item you traded in was stolen.

In states where its required for your license there is nothing to worry about, for those in states that don't require that you do risk putting yourself "on the grid" but you're already on it by virtue of having an ID and/or Social Security Card. And good luck getting convicted if they can't match your fingerprints to the ones found at the scene of the crime (i.e. they aren't going to implicate you based on fingerprints if they don't match yours). Fingerprinting simply isn't that big of a deal for non-criminals, unless you are actually living off the grid (as in you have no paper trail whatsoever) and want to keep it that way.

I used this deal to preorder my copy. I have never preordered from best buy before.

Does anyone know if when I go to pick it up I just grab a copy and go to a register or do I have to go to a specific place?

I would just avoid the confusion and pick it up at midnight but none of the best buy's by me are doing one.

Thanks for any input.

I was told at the Customer service desk to return on launch day and everything will be taken care of.

I preordered today... I personally was confused by the coupon because I didn't realize I needed to preorder by the 23rd. I simply didn't see the lighter text across the top, and zeroed into the 'redeem by 8/30' verbiage. It's a very tight 'preorder by this date and redeem the coupon by this date' setup, but the manager said that if they can't get it to work then they'll just knock $10 off when I pick it up.

My mistake, just misread, if they decided not to honor I'm cool with that.

Then they had me pay for my preorder anyways, and from what others in this thread have said it sounds like it's a regular thing to be reimbursed when you pick up the title? So I paid like $50 out of pocket after GCU and taxes, and will be going with my receipt and coupon tomorrow to pick the game up and get another $10 off. I'm sure that'll be an interesting trip.

I don't really care, I'm still buying Madden, just expected a more straightforward process from a big box retailer.

They are really disorganized and some neck beard from geek squad actually want to use my phone to see the deal. It was like something from an Adam Sandler movie. Geez.

I expected more, but we got through it. lol
