If I preorder this in store, can I cancel it later?


No. After you get the beta key you're locked in but it only costs 5 dollars.

Preordered the Collectors Edition last week. Unexpectedly received the beta key code this morning. I just threw it up on eBay as a 1 day auction, hoping that I am able to make some $$$ off of it before its exclusivity wears off.

Gamestop.com doesn't charge until it ships, right?

i might be stupid, but does anybody who had a gmail account get it in spam folder? i emptied it this morning and didnt look carefully enough and just want to make sure i didnt accidentally deleted it. my normal order confirmation etc from gamestop goes into the inbox.

Pretty sure it comes from a gamestop email address so you shouldn't get it in your spam folder if other gamestop emails go to your inbox.

It's a case by case kind of thing. Gmail learns from what you delete or mark as spam.

I did it this morning. Ordered the collectors edition with 25% off. Had to put something else in the cart to bring it over $100. There are a bunch of things out there for 2-3 bucks to put you over. My total is $83.21

The website says it can take up to 1 business day for you to get your beta key so don't freak out when you don't get it right away.


what's a good filler? btw are there any other coupons for orders under $100 good for the regular version of SCII??

not sure what you're 2nd question is but if i understand your question i dont think so, but you can order 2 copies and split with a friend.

Will people rush here and post when they've gotten their beta keys if they have ordered between 9pm and noon today? (CST) I want to see if my e-mail filter for my school just deleted the e-mail or not.

just an FYI for those that pre-ordered in store before this announcement:

if you want your key, you need to bring your original receipt back to Gamestop, cancel the preorder, then re-preorder because the key prints up on the receipt

atleast thats how it worked for me in Tennessee

Don't you need some type of card or physical item to sell it on ebay?

Yep. I was going to send a printout of the email I received from GameStop, but my listing was removed. Not a big deal either way. Would have been nice to put that money towards my preorder though ;)

You definitely don't need to be selling a physical sheet of paper or anything when it comes to beta codes on eBay.

I had already ordered 2 collectors edition with the 25OFF code from gamestop... and they were charging an extra fee for weight so I did overnight because it was the best deal. The total as $187, however now they are offering free 3 day shipping with no weight fee. I called them up and had them change my shipping and now the total is $165!!!!!!!

EDIT.. Again: Ugh, gamestop's checkout is so inaccurate. I can't imagine it being that difficult to code a coupon. Finally decided to work and stack.

Yes, but printing out the email they send you works as a physical item.

See I decided to sell mine, but I also pre-ordered Starcraft 2 about 2-3 weeks ago so I went into this without the intention of getting a game free (which I am almost doing considering it is going to cost me $18 for the game) or a beta key. I also do not necessarily want to get into the Beta because I want the game to be as fresh as possible whenever I get it after release.
