srsly. It takes forever for nintendo games to drop in price.

I ordered Mario, but how long do you think the Halo Reach $20 credit will last?


With amazon's track record, probably till release. However, put an order in now, cancel and re-order with your SMG2(or whatever game) credit down the road if the reach credit is still offered will probably be your safest bet.

Sounds like a plan. Thanks much. :razz:

Moto GP 09/10 is no longer part of the promotion. Just Cause 2 is now offering $10 credit instead of $15.

Um.. you will get the $10 credit from peace walker... if you don't get them email them afterwards and they will give it to you...

The thing is... amazon typically has crazy good customer service (even tho I've had quite a bit of problem with them the last couple weeks... think I've just been unlucky and getting newbies) but most of their people don't know their promotions or even understand how they work....

the $20 from BC2 is just like cash... it has no bearing on the promotion for PW... not to mention this clause "Promotion valid on all existing pre-orders." so doesn't matter if you ordered today or 15 years ago...


1. Don't talk down to me with your "um..." like I'm a moron and should have known better.

2. Um... you didn't understand what I was asking. I'm fully aware my BC2 credit has no stacking ability with the PW $10. What I was asking was if I could get grandfathered in to COLLECTING the PW credit on my existing pre-order that I'm using my BC2 credit ON Peace Walker which didn't have the PW $10 offer at the time.

3. I called customer service shortly after I posted, hence my update and answering my own question for the benefit of others. Their customer service is either the worst or the best depending on who you get. That day I got lucky--I got a fella who didn't know, but got a clear-cut answer from his supervisor. Most of the time I get an operator from an outsourced foreign conglomerate who you can tell is flipping through a book of pre-existing general answers.

So, um...I hope that clears your confusion up.

I was about to order Galaxy 2, but the estimated arrival date was the 26th. How does the release date delivery work? I'm an Amazon Prime member btw.

I guess they ship it to you before the launch date, trying to aim at getting it to you at launch. Personally I couldn't care less when I get a new game/book/whatever though. When you have over 100 games in your backlog it becomes pretty irrelevant :lol:

i don't think he was really talking down to you there, and also you are right that most of the time the customer service don't know about the promotions, and the people you talked to didn't know either. every one of the $10(or more) video game credit offers all say "applies to existing preorders" and i've personally pre ordered 4-5 games that later got a credit offer and was able to get it without having to cancel the order. so like he had said, you will either get the $10 promotion automatically, or if amazon's automated system misses your order, you can email/call them and they'll manually add the credit to your account.

If you need some convincing, it won't see a price drop for awhile since it's a 1st party Nintendo game.


Tell me about it, they've been rediculous about that this generation. They really need to stop milking the cash cow...

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

They overnight you the item the day before release date.

Always $10. I was hoping for $15 cause then I would drop my preorder at GS (cause man do I hate giving money to GS), but right now I have the tri bundle preordered for $50 and it includes a 500 wii points card.

I haven't been able to view my largest order for quite some time now but I can still have CS add items to it without a hitch so I'm not terribly concerned. I'd be interested to know if they have a solution for you.

Yeah same position, had em add ps3 blazblue yesterday. It just shipped with all the correct discounts. One thing I have seen is that when you go to cancel an item you can atleast see what the prices are all at, incase you're wondering if something dropped correctly on a pre-order.

My ECA holdout order has been like that for months. :) But yeah, you can hit the cancel items button and see all of the unshipped items and their current prices.

Interesting! I have two of those orders placed, one works one doesn't. Both were placed on the same day with the same discount, though the one that doesn't let me view it is quite a bit larger. Mine only quit letting me view it a week or two ago.

Do I have to use all $20 of my video game credit in one purchase, or can I use part now and part on a later purchase?

If the purchase is $20 or over all of it will be used. Anything less and it still gets used first and the balance is left over.

The 11th-25th of May is so overcrowded for releases. 3D Dot Game Heroes, Red Dead Redemption, Galaxy 2, Peace Walker, Split / Second, Alan Wake, Prince of Persia, ModNation Racers... Never thought I'd be hoping for a delay, but that's just an absurd amount of high-quality titles in a short time span. I've pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption and Galaxy 2, might have to do some more if my wallet permits.
