No. Unfortunately, we are unable to link your order to you GAME account so that it shows in your order history. 

Had to checkout as a Guest - what about my points? 

Due to technical issues experienced on our website we are aware that a number of our customers were unable to checkout as a registered account holder when the new consoles went live for pre-order. We are sorry for this experience and our teams have been working hard to resolve  technical issues.
