People were reporting getting TO:LUCT with the pre-order cards a few days ago when the price went down to $19.99, but I'm not sure that's gonna be the case considering it's shipping in 1-4 weeks now (new supply).

Granted, people who ordered from Amazon a week or two after it was released didn't even get the cards so who knows wtf S-E is doing :/

I assumed that posts that were related to trying to scam Amazon out of games from a promotion that's long since dead and the only way to try and get games from it is to BS Amazon CS reps multiple times until you get someone that does it blindly without thinking is something we didn't want to be associated with on CAG.

Apparently, I was wrong in that assumption in thinking that we're better than stooping to that level in brow-beating Amazon CS reps until they submit to providing items from a dead promotion into an order that doesn't qualify for it any longer.

If you have to keep making the same requests to Amazon CS to find the one that gets you what you want when it's wrong to begin with, you're doing it wrong.


Now I feel guilty :( I didn't realize that it was a dead deal, I thought it was just getting them to stack the new sale price and the B2G1. With how amazing Amazon is we really don't need to be trying to screw them over.

Still some really great sale prices on this sale!

That is a pretty good sale indeed. Time to crack open the piggy bank. I have not played the psp version of Y's Oath in Felghana, but the pc version is excellent. It also has a fantastic soundtrack as well which I highly recommend. The limited edition pc version may cost a pretty penny, but it is worth every penny.

Serious question: If the page for a deal is still live, should we really consider it 'dead' if its not automatically working on checkout? I mean, online deals often don't have expiration dates, so if the page is still live its like its still being advertised as active. Amazon reps understand this, that's why they always ask now for links to the deal pages as a validation of them being active before applying the promo/discount.

Yes, we should. If the discount doesn't show up in the cart automatically, it's dead.

Trying to get Amazon CS reps to honor it when it's not working automatically in the cart, especially when it doesn't works the first time, that's scamming them. Especially when we all know that the amount of paying attention varies from rep to rep for Amazon policies.

I agree. How many other threads are started and continued based on website or b&m errors or contain much YMMV content due to pending managers approval.

Don't mean bash any moderators - and I think the site has a great balance due to them - but it is what it is.

When the discount for a promotion doesn't show automatically in the cart on checkout for an Amazon B2G1 promotion, it's dead.

When people need to go back to multiple reps and cycle through them until getting one to try and honor a dead deal, it's scamming Amazon.

It hurts me to say this but I agree 100% with Shrike on this. If a deal is valid at Amazon it will work properly at checkout.

To get off the subject of scamming and what not.
I still have my 20 credit (On Select 3DS Games) from OOT that I still haven't used. I noticed these sale prices are in effect with this credit.
The only thing is I'm unsure whether to use the credit now (Since these sale prices probably won't last) or maybe hold out until closer to the deadline (Sept 30th) to see if they add more titles or something.

Wait till star Fox comes out on 9/9/11. Mabye it will be added to the list. Oh and by the way, does Amazon still give you that 20 credit with oot now or is it dead ?

I am usually the first to side with businesses against customers trying to pull one over, especially in the case of an obvious price mistake. But this is not a price mistake, and that makes a big difference from a legal and ethical standpoint. I know of no jurisdiction in the U.S. where retailers are obligated to honor an obvious price mistake. But an intentionally advertised sale price that has "expired" may in some jurisdictions need to be honored if no expiration date is given to the customer. A customer in such a jurisdiction is in the right both ethically and legally to request that the retailer honor the expired price. So in this case it's really not a clear case of anyone trying to scam Amazon.

i realized it was a wiki and made the change ;)

was hoping for those hori ones. noticed a small (almost unnoticeable when the system is on) mark from the lower screen on my top screen lately and was thinking I should put a protector on it before it gets worse.

I have the aluminum shell. It is bulky and adds some weight but fits really nice and keeps the 3DS secure. You won't be able to cradle charge but that is the only downside I can see.

It's a dead promotion because it's not working as advertised on the site, as when you check out on the site with three items from the pages of the sale, the discount doesn't get removed from the purchase. The link is still up there until someone finds it and removes it.

Amazon is likely already aware of the issue from all of the people trying to get items on that dead sale to double-dip on the current prices, and I'm sure they're working to fix it. They've already started to pass the word around that the promotion is dead and not to be honored and that will take time to get to all of the CS reps.

I haven't used the cradle yet so it won't matter to me. Does the shell look good? As long as it doesn't make the 3DS look ugly I am fine with it.

EDIT: Has anyone used the Hori Protectors on Amazon?

Hard Case

Silicone Case

I have the silicone case for my DS Lite and it's pretty good but I don't know if this one is a good fit or not. I'd guess it fit very good since it's from Hori.

IM of the mind that there is no harm in asking. However once given the answer probing for a rep that doesnt know or care is like asking your mom because your dad said no, its dishonest. So one time hurts nothing multiple is taking advantage. Thats just my personal motius operandi for these situations.
