Hogwarts Legacy resurfaced this week with a release window and the first-ever look at its gameplay. And with its 2020 reveal trailer now the most-watched game trailer on the PlayStation YouTube page, it's safe to declare that the game is going to be a massive seller. If you're aboard this hype train and are looking to pre-order the game, you should probably do it at Best Buy for a free $10. Since its emergence this week, the game has begun to go up for pre-order, and in the process pre-order bonuses are unveiling themselves, and Best Buy may have the best one.
Best Buy is currently awarding everyone who pre-orders the game -- no matter the platform -- a $10 gift card, no strings attached. On PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, this means you're essentially getting the game for $60 rather than $70. Meanwhile, on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, this means you're essentially getting it for $50 rather than $60.Buy Hogwarts Legacy at Best Buy
Right now, it's unclear if this is a limited-time offer. Obviously, after the game releases, the offer will expire because it will no longer be available to pre-order. What we mean is it's unclear if the offer will expire before release rather than at it.
If you do decide to pre-order, you will need to wait until the game ships to get the gift card, which is likely being done to counter anyone thinking of gaming the system by pre-ordering, getting the gift card, and then canceling.
