Um.. Not really. You can return an open, "defective" game to Amazon within 30 days and not pay shipping and get a full refund or something else. Best Buy will only let you exchange it for an identical item. Plus Amazon's customer service makes Best Buy look like their customer service is run by XBL kids.

Amazon also initiated a faster refund policy that Amazon will process the refund as soon as the carrier receives shipment of the item. How much more logic do I need to lay down, son?

I'm sure that Amazon will match all of these items and most likely offer Release Date Delivery. They have already matched TRU's offer on both Heroes of Ruin ($29.99) and Final Fantasy Theatrythym ($29.99 and offered RDD plus the preorder bonus). It'll just be closer to when the game releases.

A customer says:
Because he can buy a game he doesn't want, say it's defective and get a refund and work around the system.

Similar to GameStop's 7 day used return policy. Buy the game, beat it, say it sucks and get your money back.

I actually plan on playing the games I buy from Bestbuy for this 20 dollar incentive. :P

Sure it does. Why the hell would anyone shop at Best Buy? With their long cattle lines and slow cashiers, employees that would rather talk to each other than help a customer. No thanks. Amazon is the clear winner. The only useful thing about Best Buy is checking out an item before buying it on Amazon.

I'd rather wait and see with Amazon then do it at Best Buy and have to make 3 trips.

Never had those problems so Best Buy is just fine with me.

I return maybe 3 items a year to Amazon and they always have a problem with it, just because I said that you can do it, doesn't mean that I do do it. Heh, do do.

I'm guessing that if you've never had those problems it's because you've never shopped at Best Buy. I mean they're pretty rampant problems. I'm not even in my same state anymore, but walking into Best Buy is like I never left.

Fox, I've never had any problems at Best Buy. Deals come up, I choose store pick up and that is it. I never really ever buy anything that I don't want so the return policy and having to deal with customer service doesn't really matter to me. Average deals from Best Buy are upwards of $20-$25 compared to Amazon and sometimes more. Batman AC for $10. AC Revelations for $10. The Darkness 2 for $12. The list goes on.

I can't help your pessimism. My post was pretty positive on Amazon.

Same. Haven't had these trouble at Best Buy either. I order a game for in-store pick-up, drive five miles down the road, pick it up immediately with usually no wait. It's pretty great.

Oh, and Amazon's great, too.

MrFoxhound says:
I just got a 3DS from Best Buy two weeks ago when they were doing the $20 credit, and I was told that I can't use it in the same trip. I had to come back the next day, at least, to use it. So it's either 3 trips, or bad employees.

I just shop wherever I can get the best deals. Wouldn't really care if there was a wait or crappy customer service, to be honest, I just want to save some dime.
