Hey all. As you may have seen previously, Best Buy is cutting off anyone with remaining GCU benefits at the end of this month. This is just a friendly reminder (as suggested by @Kommie) that if you want anything else with the 20% discount, I need to put the order in before March 1. With that in mind, I want to ask a favor to make it a little less stressful getting all of the orders in. If you could please find your tax rate and calculate what the cost of your order would be beforehand for the offer (price + tax - 20%), then that would be helpful.

Is the 20% off just for pre-orders? Or for any full-priced game?

Any physical game really, no digital codes/currency

@Bleed_DukeBlue I just wanna say that you've been really awesome at helping fellow GTZers out with the last-man standing GCU account. I know I've appreciated you helping me same money, and you getting to rack up RZ points and credit card points. So win-win for everyone!

No worries! A lot of people have done nice things for me along the way the past few years here, so I'm happy to be able to help.

Think I've made 3 or 4 orders in the last month or so. Big thank you

Odd question, the "limit" is only because they may cancel your GCU right? If so, if we want something but you don't have a spot left would you order it?

They apparently cancel your entire customer account. Any rewards points (and status) are lost, warranties that may've been purchased become a real pain to find, etc.

He can't do that, it'd be risking his pending preorders

Didn't realize they would cancel pre orders. No biggie, but thank you for clarifying.

I still have GCU as well, but never used it for anyone else :( I don't know why I didn't...just never really set it up.

I could do that for some people if they want. Does it end March 1?

How can you tell what games you have hit the limit of?

If you never used the gcu on anyone else you likely have 3 uses, except on games you pur based with it. But honestly not sure there is a way to check otherwise.

Nice! I just go into my purchases section and keyword search for the games people are looking for to make sure there aren't more than three purchases of each.

I'll still have my Elden Ring preorder to remind me of GCU for many years.

This is a sad day indeed. I'm sorry for your loss @Bleed_DukeBlue

Thank you for sharing your GCU with the community and I. I know I definitely had you order me at least 8 things over the past 5 or so months. It was greatly appreciated!! grin

Also, I wanted to take the time to thank those others who had also helped me, and I'm sure many others, after many of our memberships expired.

@Dashey
@EasyCompany
@GaminPhreak
@Justin
@Scott
@SwiftJAB

I'm sure I'm missing some people, but these are the 6 I was able to recall/search under my past trades for. You guys rock, thanks again!

I can't see anything from that trailer, but I'm not gonna lie. The prospect of it being real is kind of exciting.

I remember even Amazon did 20% off on pre-orders but since people used it, they got rid of it at some point.

They had wanted to in order to capture the sales that would otherwise go to Best Buy.
