Just hit on this today in-store, hadn't picked up Max Payne 3 yet and figured the CE was worth it at thirty bucks. The deal requires a promotional code which your local Gamestop should be able to look up in their computers (it's an EBCXXX-XX... type code.) It was designed to work with the basic version of the game but I was happy to find it worked on the CE. It will not work on pre-owned copies, however.

Deal also appears to be online, haven't tried yet myself though with the collector's editions. Posted Image

So basically you could put $5 down and still get the 30 off assuming it works in store?

Works with the special edition online, but you have to pay GTA in full.

Well damn. I just preordered it Monday. I would have considered the SE for $30.

Wow, if you only have to put $5 down at GS in-store, I'm going to go ahead and pick this sucker up. I've been wanting to pick this up since launch but I kept hesitating every time I saw it go for cheap.

Just go cancel your pre-order and do it again. You'll get the discount.

Is this promotion only good for people in states or canadians as well? Because I can't seem to find anything on gamestop.ca website regarding this promo

This is still not working in store. Manager checked documents and online. No ebc codes. Does not discount with $5 preorder or pay in full. Had to manually discount Max Payne to $29.99.

Nothing, you get your money back. It's the same with the "get blah blah % bonus trade in credit towards certain games". You can cancel the pre orders and turn it back into normal credit for anything.

Is anyone else having trouble doing this online? The discount for Max Payne 3 is added when I place both of them in my cart but when I go to checkout I have to pay $60 for both.

Hrm, so is this worth going in store to try or am I possibly going to run a bunch of hassle?

Interesting deal for those that haven't played Max Payne 3 but it seems like GTA5 is still so far off... a little early to be preordering. They said 2013, most people seem to expect spring so these days that means... Holiday 2013 best case scenario?

update: the ebc code required in-store is ebc3037691. as for gta v, the posters that are free with the reserve do say "spring 2013" and these are promo items produced by rockstar. my best guess is april/may next year, not unlike the launch window of la noire.

Went in today and I got the last copy of the special edition. The manager didn't have the code, but he called his superior and made sure it was okay to just apply a 30 dollar discount. He let it happen and low and behold, I have Max Payne 3 SE! I love the statue and I love key chains, so the bullet is pretty beast. Thanks OP!

Hmmm, this is quite tempting. Even though I was waiting to get the game from Steam eventually.

I know some people don't like shopping on Black Friday, but in case you haven't checked the BF thread, this is going to be $9 at K-Mart on BF.

Not the special edition.

Tried to get it to work in store but it wasn't in the system.. I'll try with the code posted a few posts ago next time.

Ohh, I'm an idiot haha I didn't see it said CE in the OP. Guess it makes this a pretty good deal then.

Just did this with no real problems. I think the guy just overode it because the reciept says 'Discount $30, promotion not found"

Im in there a lot so the guys are cool with me. He called up a manager at another store because he couldn't find it but that guy didn't seem to be able to help. I just told him it was on the website and he overode it i guess.

There shouldn't be any issue if you can point out its on the website. Now i got a vanilla ps3 version and a CE xbox version. Not even really sure whats in this puppy
