Sorry if this has been answered before, but if I already had a game pre-ordered and then Amazon offers the promo credit, do I automatically get it? Or do I have to cancel and place the order again?

Thanks


yes it says offer will be extended to all previous preorders. this is great already had it ordered

Can the credit be used multiple times on a single order? Like if i had pre-ordered 2 games and got 20 dollars, could i use that 20 dollars credit towards 1 game?

Yes.

You just can't collect two credits from the same game (so if you bought two copies of Bioshock 2, you would only get one $10 credit).

so when ordering something does it ask whether you want to use the credit or save it? would like to collect enough credit to maybe get a $60 game free

Well, with my zombie ECA discount & a $15 credit, I can't say no to Just Cause 2. :-P

The $10 credits have expiration dates. For example, the Mass Effect 2 $10 credit expires end of February. They usually give you at least a month to use it and it can be used on preorders.

You can turn off your credits at the "Shipping and Payment" page of checkout.

If you already passed that page, you can go back to it by clicking the "Change" button under "Payment Method:" on the final "Place Your Order" page.

I see a special rifle for preordering Just Cause 2 on Amazon, but I don't see any mention of the other in-game weapons/vehicles that are supposed to be available with all preorders of JC2. I'm assuming those would come as well?

No, preordering at Amazon will only get you the rifle. GS is offering the handgun, and I think BB has the chevalier. EU preorders of the game get all 6 dlc bonuses (lucky!).

The devs have stated though that all of the preorder dlc will eventually come to the marketplace for NA. The hovercraft looks sweet.

It seems that when you add an item to an existing order through customer service rather than ordering it the usual way, their system will not recognize that you're eligible for the credit. You'll have to contact customer service again to argue your case and hope they give you the credit or an equivalent refund. I've had some success doing this, but just something to keep in mind.

Okay, so I haven't gone through the entire thread, but here's what I just experienced.

Was going to pre-order Madden 11. Figured the $20 credit was too good to pass up. Had it in my cart, had chosen my payment options, and was on the confirm order screen when I noticed at the bottom left it said "$10 game credit", NOT $20.

I ended up closing the page without ordering, and thought I'd mention this here first.

Oh, that's dumb. From the promo video they had shown about the preorder DLC, it seemed like you'd get the whole package of items/vehicles for preordering. I guess that's only for Europe.

Well, I was on the fence anyway about this game. Now I'll just wait for a deep markdown.

I'm hoping Splinter Cell Conviction gets a $10 promo credit. Planning to preorder it using the credits I earned from ME2 and Bioshock 2.

Damn, I wasn't aware of that. I wonder if it works better to pre-order the item separately (ensuring the credit is correctly part of the order) and then email Amazon asking them to consolidate orders by adding that new order to an existing order with the discount(s)?

Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for this. I feel confident that I can get them to give it to me tho, if they don't automatically. I'll find out how it goes in a few weeks, when FFXIII ships.

Same thing happened to me, I'm gonna wait and see if they get fixed before putting in an order.

I know that the 10$ bonus is "one per-household" but has anyone ever tried to buy 2 of the same game for different systems, and if you would get the 20$ on your account for buying both ? For instance buying FF XIII on 360 and ps3.

I've never tried it but I can't see why it wouldn't work. You're buying two separate SKUs. The way I interpret it, the policy is one $10 credit per SKU per household.

Strange, I don't see any $10 promotional credit listed for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. I already have it preordered and I don't see any indication on the product page.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see it now under "Special Offers and Product Promotions." Usually they are good promoting a deal like this with some sort of banner towards the top of the page. Anyways, this makes me happy with my decision to preorder on Amazon!

Amazon usually sends the emails about the promotional codes within 2 days after the game's release, so you should wait until Friday before emailing them and asking where it's at.
