The loss of $.99 release date shipping really sucks on my wallet.

Now it would cost 8-10 more bucks per game if I wanted them on the day they come out.

What a load of crap. I hope this price boost is only a mistake or temporary.


GameStop almost always has a better pre-order bonus than Amazon, and the ONLY thing that has kept me with Amazon is you normally get 10 dollars in credit, you don't have to pay the sales tax, and release day delivery is only a dollar.

Take away release date delivery, and Amazon just lost themselves pretty much every single game that I pre-order for the foreseeable future.

Hopefully they're just testing this, it will bite them in the ass, and they'll be back to their standard way of business in a month or two at most.

I'm currently in the "trial" of Amazon Prime but it is offering free shipping on release on all games I go to pre-order. I think you may have to select one day if you want it on the release day which is usually 3.99 I believe.

Still disappointing as I have grown to love shopping on Amazon and has saved me so much money as a gamer with only Walmart and Kmart in town...

^^^^ Release date delivery is free for Prime members. You select 2-day & its automatically upgraded. This applies to many games, movies, & books.

Anyone who preordered Lego Batman 2 DC Super Heroes get a second $10 credit added to their account over the weekend?

I got a code last week for $10 credit and used it. Then on Sunday my account suddenly had another $10 credit. I have not preordered any other games in some time.

It could've been from something else, but I have no clue what it would've been since the only other thing I've preordered was a couple movies.

There was a promo for a brief time where you got a certain amount off of another LEGO game with the purchase of LEGO Batman 2. That might be what the extra credit is. You should see if you can apply that $10 credit to anything or just another LEGO game.

What Amazon is awesome even without any promo credits. Amazon cannot give credits to every game that is coming out.

Dont unsticky this but Best Buys $20 preorder promos should probably be stickied also.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

Well they used to and that's why this was stickied in the first place (I assume since I can't remember).

IMO this should just be converted into an any store with pre-order credits thread (mostly Best Buy unless Kmart starts again).

This isn't exactly related to this thread, so I apologize in advance, but I don't know where else to ask. If I've already pre-ordered a game on Amazon, is it possible to pay some of it with a gift card still?

If I remember correctly, if you click on order details there should be an apply gift card balance button.

Hopefully as time passes, Amazon will up their credit deals. I mean last year, $20 credit was extended to a large majority of the new releases. If they add $20 to Halo 4 regular edition, I might just have to cancel the Limited Edition (need to save money these days), and they need to make the Borderlands 2 credit $20, not $10 to help with all the new releases coming up. I really don't want to shop on Newegg since I have Amazon prime and I might as well use it.

Does anyone know if Amazon offers $1 Day One shipping on limited editions? In this case the Borderlands 2 loot box edition.

Well, lately they have rarely if ever given a credit, even if other retailers have done so. I wonder how awesome people are going to think Amazon is in the coming months as they will collect tax from buyers in large states like California.

I think amazon is focusing on other areas now. I used to buy games from them alot, but i never got any emails about games sales. It was always higher end electronics and other services they wanted me to sign up for. Maybe they feel like video games sales arent worth fighting for right now?

Yeah just looked at this thread for the first time in awhile as my friends have said Amazon has fallen off. Outside of the amazing PC deals and their customer service I have to agree. They are not fighting the taxs anymore in a lot of states, 99 cent release date delivery is gone but a win for prime members who now get release date delivery free, and lastly promo credits. If it wasn't for my Amazon rewards CC I would have gladly went with Newegg, BestBuy or even TRU the last 12+ months of game shopping.

I don't know what was up but it's incredible how much Amazon's game sales have changed. I remember it used to be you could preorder a game for less than retail, get it fast with prime, and end up with a 10-20$ credit. These were on popular games too. They had so much going for them but they must've been losing money off of it or something cause they aren't doing much at all to entice people to buy games from them. Hopefully game sales are ok for them, I never thought Bestbuy would be my premier place to buy videogames from.
