Edit: Sold out /removed for now, who knows if it will be back and at what price.

Credit to CAG

The Order: 1886 CE w/ Statue is currently $20 off at Best Buy (shipping or pickup). Retail is $80 and it doesn't show a markdown, so it's probably a price mistake. BB is pretty good at honoring those, so I'd jump on it. $48 with Gamer's Club Unlocked is a steal.

You don't understand why publishers would want extra money and why people would want extra stuff?

Hmm, store pick-up or shipping?
I decided store pick-up so at least I can talk to the manager if the price changes, good idea or bad idea?

If I hadn't already gotten this with the ton of Amazon credit I had saved I would jump on it. No money out of pocket trumps less money total. I'm a sucker for steelbooks.

I got excited but then I read the description and I honestly don't have any interest in any of the extras being offered. I think I'd rather just have the standard edition.

Ugh, the problem is that Best Buy keeps a hold in your account allll the way until the game ships.

I would love to get this just for the Steelbook. I have decided to give this game a day one chance :)

Wait on it. There's a nonzero chance that Best Buy might not honor the price and revise your order to the regular edition or something, and you're not missing out on anything by waiting until after release to cancel your GameStop preorder (unless you want your GS credit back ASAP).

If they change the price, you'll know long before they ship and you just cancel.

Thanks OP. $48 with GCU.
I called my local BB to preorder for $5. The preorder option was not available to them in store. I preorderdd and chose store pickup, I figured I would complain in store and in person if they change price.

That's the thing, Amazon doesn't have in-store pickup and my mailman is far too inconsistent in the winter. Best Buy really is the best option, so I ordered.

I haven't checked terms lately, but thought they guaranteed the prices on these kinds of deals. Of course, they usually don't offer anything like this. Whatever, just let me justify my Prime membership without having to mention The Sopranos, The Wire, or my lazy nature.
