I thought you were trolling...youre not right?

And clearly this should be merged with the Amazon Credit deals thread like Kmarts Batman deal was merged with the Kmart stickied thread.

Tried placing an order but no credit shows. Maybe they let the deal slip a little earlier than they meant to or just dont have it set up yet. Or maybe there is no deal.

According to Amazon.com this deal does not exist, but if it does I will finally purchase a game from Amazon.

Yeah, if this is true, the deal just isn't updated on Amazon's site. Also checked my email, and I haven't received such an email either.

If this does turn out to be true, I'll gladly cancel my PC pre-order and get it for the PS3 now...and eventually get the PC version when it's cheaper.

I'm not seeing anything either. I suppose they could be matching Kmart but with almost no other retailer offering anything on this I don't see why Amazon would put in a credit deal; especially because they've been so conservative lately.

Hopefully they do though...

has anyone seen next week's TRU deals?

Yeah hopefully they just havent updated it yet and it's not a mistake. I'll probably still go with Kmart because I happen to be looking for the X12s but if this is legit I can always get the game now and just use the credit on the x12s when they have a deal on them..

Let's assume this is legit...

Does amazon still function where they will only let you get ONE promo credit? Even if you order a 360 copy and a PS3 copy?

I believe that's how it works but can never remember.. I think I've gotten two credits once when I placed a preorder, received the credit and then ordered again while the promo was still active

Someone else mentioned it but yea, this is one of those games that the console version should be cheaper than the PC. Not only graphics but they scaled down the maps. This game makes me want to throw together a gaming PC.

I got a similar email this morning (4:43am), but w/o the $20 offer. I don't doubt Amazon knows who to offer deals to and who not to to maximize profits though. I usually buy the blockbusters from them, so they might not offer me the deal....

So, I pre-ordered the PC version when it was still showing as $60. Now it's $50. From what I can tell, Amazon does not charge your credit card until the pre-ordered product has been shipped. So I won't have to worry about being refunded the difference since no charge has occurred. At least I couldn't spot a charge on my statement. Is this correct?
