Buy.com only charges your credit card once the item is released and ready for shipment. Unlike Walmart and Bestbuy they do not precharge your credit card before the item is released.

Also OP, do you have to do anything special to get the 1,000 points? I'm only showing 100 on my order?

I ordered using the Buy.com app on my iphone. Was not sure how I received the 1,000 points which is why I did not post it in the title of his post.

Yeah, there's not much to worry about with buy.com. They've been around since '97 and are one of the largest online retailers around.

Amazon has had them in and out of stock several times. There could be a lot out of copies going around. eBay will be absolutely flooded with speculators at the game's launch. I can't see them going for much more than their retail cost.

We know just as much as you do, all we can do is speculate. I wouldn't be surprised if it was selling for about $20 more at launch but my only guide for that is Starcraft II's CE.

The USB drive will probably sell for $40 at least. I sold my SCII drive at that price. That'll bring the total cost down to $60 but you'll have extra items, soundtrack, artbook. If you don't play WOW, sell that code for maybe $20. Since these have been OOS on Amazon for a while now, I think it'd be in your best interest to get it now and sell what you don't need. Do so immediately after release, otherwise the prices might go down.

Pretty sure all the digital items like the pet will be tied to the game key. You can't sell them separately.

You would be waiting at least 3 years for a battlechest. 2 for a expansion and another for the bundle. I for one can't wait another 2 weeks even haha.

Are these hard to come by or something?
I preordered one from Buy a month ago or so but I had no idea that they were actually limited.

Even though I have this preordered, I am fairly certain it won't be limited. None of the Blizzard CEs have ever really been limited, except for perhaps the original release of WoW. Right after release, scalper hype pushes price up but as soon as they realize there are a billion copies out there, they eventually let them go for cheap, especially when retail stores start clearancing them out. And then we all laugh at their stupidity.

I'm myself debating whether or not I should cancel my amazon CE preorder and just wait. I am not super pumped to play D3 right away, was not totally blown away by the beta, and have a backlog of other games; so maybe I will skip picking this up right away and wait for it to become available cheaper. I got the SC2 CE from BB for $50 about a year after its release.

Starcraft's CE went to clearance level for as low as $20 at Target, and i'm sure there will be more than a few extra of these when all said and done but then again i feel like Diablo is a lot more popular here in the west than Starcraft is and will probably sell better.

Yeah a lot more popular, which is why I believe this might actually be limited, despite popular belief.

Who knows, perhaps that popularity will just encourage them to produce even more copies in an attempt to meet the additional demand.
