I have just visited our local store and there was a small advert for this. Buy Mass Effect and get 1000 free points. That's around £10 worth of points for game downloads.

1000 points is worth about £7.50

There's no mention of it on the website, is this an instore HMV deal or is it a Microsoft promotion?

It was in-store in the City branch near Moorgate Station, London.

Same in all birmingham branches - noticed today.

Am i wrong in thinking that you could buy the game, get the points and return the game pretty much immediately? Whats the policy on returning something if its been un-opened? This is assuming of course that you dont need to open to game to get the points. But if its HMV specific i dont think you will, they will most likely just hand you over the points.

my mate brought it on friday from hmv derby, and he was not giver nor offered the 1,000 points.

i told him he should go down tomorrow and say that its unfair to offer this to everyone and leave him out.

any suggestions.

I too bought it from Derby on Friday and didn't get any free points!! Damn!!

Played this for a few days now and it's not that hot - guess the points will make up for it though.

My advice, get Modern Warfare 4 - so hot I can't stop playing all day long.

Very naughty, but has anybody done it? Tempted :whistling:

I'm sure HMV will have thought of people returning the game and keeping the points. Probably says on your receipt that you got 1000 points!

This is daft, why have they started an offer like this so soon after the games release? I'm pretty hacked off actually, as I got this from Play last week having had it on pre-order for months.

To make people buy it from them as opposed to somewhere else. I dare say that a lot of games get more sales in their first week than at any other time.

Voted warm, as i'd rather not have 1000 points and save that money by buying it from WH Smith's for £32.99 and using their 10% offer (making it £29.69) they're having from 26th Nov - 2nd Dec.

To use the 10% offer you must have the discount card they were handing out last week.

I have not decided with mass effect yet whether i like it or im just playing it because it cost me £30 plus.

alll i will say is "I should get going" if you play for awhile you will understand :giggle:
