It's not a hoax. If you do a little searching around the net you'll find plenty of places that mention reservation rewards/EBGames. Maybe you should have asked that EB rep if they've had a business relationship with reservation rewards.http://cookedgamers.net/node/view/220After you complete your order at EB, you will see a link on the confirmation page near your order total that says: "Your purchase is complete. Click here to claim your special reward for your purchase today. [Continue button]."
Its a 30 day trial for a service called Reservation Rewards, there are no charges associated with the trial as long as you cancel within 30 days! You get a $10 Gift voucher for EBgames after you enter your email addy on the signup page when a confirmation window pops up and you get an email with the voucher code.
So just go back to your account and cancel the order and reorder it with the $10 gift voucher!
Total cost: $39.99 - $10 Voucher - $20 Voucher (-$10 UT2k3 MIR) = $0
Be sure to cancel the reservation rewards within 30 days. Cancellation number is 1-888-688-5995. THERE IS ALSO A CANCELLATION PAGE ONLINE ON THE RESERVATION REWARDS WEBSITE... I JUST CANCELLED MY MEMBERSHIP AND GOT A CANCELLATION NUMBER, SO YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO CALL TO CANCEL, JUST USE THE WEBSITE."
OK. So if you were savvy enough to take advantage of that deal and cancel it, cool. If people want companies like EBGames to play games like that with you, then buy from them. If you'd prefer to avoid junk offer links like that, spend your money on competitors that don't do it.This comment was edited on Sep 16, 15:42.
