The last sentence of this FAQ makes it seem like they won't be instant


Q3: What do I have to do to qualify for this offer?
A3: If you are an eligible My Best Buy member, pre-order your copy of any of the qualifying titles in either the standard version or special edition for PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4 or PC prior to their release date.

When you meet these requirements, you will receive 500 bonus points credited to your account within 15 days of purchase or game shipment

That's why I asked. There is typically a delay to prevent fraud and to try and encourage return business.

No, I'm asking about Best Buy. I understand that companies make deals to get foot traffic, but it usually doesn't result in sacrificing margin to this extent. Just seems extreme and a better deal than I have ever seen before on a video game.

I don't see that at all, they'll resell many of the copies they receive and get repeat shoppers on other goods via the reward certificate. Good deal, sure, but it's not that unreal.

The $10 reward certificate for pre-ordering is not instant. The $10 coupon towards Madden 15 is.

You can't spend the $10 credit on the game you pre-ordered though.

Your misunderstanding, you get a $10 coupon instantly toward Madden 15 if you trade in Madden 25 towards it. On top of that you get the $10 reward certificate for pre ordering. So you get $35 towards Madden 15 plus the $10 reward certificate for pre ordering.

Well you caught it before I hit post no biggy

Thanks for posting about this. I just bought a copy of Madden 25 on ebay for 17 bucks, so I will save 35 off Madden 15, and use the extra 10 bucks to get Batman Arkham Knight or NBA 2k15.
