Star Wars The Old Republic Collector's Edition $19.99 @ Best Buy.com

There doesn't seem to be free shipping for this item (only for Silver Members) but it is also available for In Store Pickup.

At this price, why not? In for one, never played TOR, but with it going F2P maybe I will, my son will like the statue and CE stuff anyways.


For me, premier silver, I got free expedited shipping, although there was no difference from free standard shipping in the estimated arrival during the checkout, afterwards my shipping date went from 8/24-27 down to 8/21-22. I've had slow shipping experiences with BB before, but that was only free standard shipping, idk why this qualifies for expedited.

My store has quite a few of these. Does it come with a free month? Is it even worth it?

The great thing is with the CE, if you pay for at least one month following the free month you get 1000 Cartel coins when FTP hits. These are used to unlock stuff for non-subscription players. You should still get access to the exclusive CE store as well.

Sat on the order screen for a few minutes.. then said Fuck it why not, some Ebay money just went through so I have some spare change.

Worst case scenario they cancel the order and I don't miss out on anything good.

+1. I didn't think it would go below $30 but this thing is dropping like a rock.

$20 is nuts. The figure alone is easily worth twice that.

You should know by now that buying any CE over $100 is a suckers bet. I fell for it once with Halo 3 and never again.

Got one for store pickup. I have an account that hasn't been active for a while... Do you guys think it'll add time to my previous account or should I make an entirely new one?

Well, I felt like a sucker after buying the Skyrim CE and watching it drop so fast so I'm glad I held out on this. 20 bucks is a steal. In for an in store pickup one!

Damn, I seen this yesterday but didn't know you could do store pick-up since it said outlet item. Thanks OP, grabbed one for 21.xx. I bet all the people that bought this for 30 from KMART with real cash are kicking themselves :D. Best Buy credit is the best.

^^About as big as the SKYRIM collectors box. Pretty big. Your arms will get tired.

I figured buying at $30 would be a safe bet, but damn, wish I would've held out.

I only wanted the statue, which I'm now proudly displaying. No idea what to do with the other stuff yet.

I'd say it's 16x16x16 cube or so. Not particularly heavy - most of the space is the figure.

In for one even after I bought a copy from Kmart, so that my girlfriend can have an account, too.

It's not that big.. I have the Skyrim CE sitting here next to this one lol. It's the same shape, but given the difference in the volume, I'd say it's about half the total size.

Free expedited shipping is one of the revised Premier Silver benefits (along with 60 day returns, etc.). I believe they rolled this out in the last week or so; it was available during the "blowout sale" last weekend.

Thanks, OP. I had the BB product page bookmarked after the drops at Kmart and Fry's, but it was repeatedly $129.99 and I stopped checking it the last couple of days...

Apparently not. Looks like you'll be able to download it for free and play up to level 50 for free, although there will be benefits to subscribers.
