So buy.com does a hold on your card ? That is hate incarnate ...

Does J&R put a hold on your card?

Buy.com certainly did... but I see nothing from JR.com sitting in my account yet... but that could show up tomorrow. I'll keep an eye on it and report back later on Monday

When did this happen? I preordered on Amazon as well and I didn't get your luck. It just automatically happened? If so I might need to contact them.


Honestly not sure, I just remember when I checked it it gave me 5$ off as a promo

I can honestly see this one being pretty limited, the 100$ version might be a bit more common.

I preordered mine from amazon and literally a few days later it was sold out and even gamestop stopped taking preorders. My guess is they only plan to make so many of these.

For whatever reason it was 5$ off when I ordered on amazon and it comes with promo credit, release day shipping and all the pre-order goodies.


i doubt this version will get the promo credit, i've ordered several CEs from amazon and only the vanilla version got the promo credit.

This maybe a stupid question but I'll ask since I didn't see it listed. Will the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club be included with the preorders from either Buy.com or J&R?

Any idea when the Creature Slaughter Dome will be available to everyone? It's a bonus for ordering from Gamestop.

Bonus Item
•Creature Slaughter Dome
Pre-order Borderlands 2 with GameStop and receive the Exclusive Creature Slaughter Dome!

Creature Slaughter Dome: Enter the Creature Slaughter Dome and face off against the TOUGHEST monsters in all of Pandora. Your efforts will not be in vain. Gain experience and gear to bring back into the main game. Endure the battle, and you will receive NUMEROUS rewards.

I grabbed one at JR.com as well...

so... how good is JR.com? I've never heard of them. Are they "way" more reliable than buy? If so I'll cancel my order at buy, but I figure it doesn't hurt to jump on these and sort it out later.

I really hope gamestop allows pre-orders again though since I'd rather get the bonus they're offering.


I'm wondering if the Gamestop "bonus" is just a timed exclusivity thing. Since it's not just a skin or something it sounds like the type of thing that would be released to everyone eventually.
Wubwubwubwub.

Can't believe that this thing sold out already. I'll hold out and hope it comes back in stock at more conventional retailers. And I think a gearbox employee confirmed on twitter that the GameStop preorder some will be paid dlc later on.

Ugh, so pissed off. I remember them announcing this stupid thing and then having nowhere to pre-order it for...months! then I finally give up for about a month and I find out it's sold out everywhere. GAH! the one stupid "special" edition that I was willing to throw money away on and it's gone. lame.

I'm kinda upset too -- everyone sold out rather quickly. I'm confident more will be available shortly though -- I doubt Gearbox wouldn't mass produce these...

if anyone wants to cancel at buy.com..it's still possible. I called last night and the rep at India didn't give me any trouble and submitted my request. I got the confirmation to cancel just now!

Shouldn't it be easy to cancel anywhere since it doesn't come out until Sept?

Got an order in at both Buy & J&R. Hopefully Amazon, GS or BB will open it back up and I'll cancel both of them.

With it selling out in a mere two weeks 4 months before release, I can't imagine they'll leave money on the table by not producing more.

Canceling Preordered Items

Please note that preordered games, videos, DVDs and books enter the shipping process when the order is created. This happens prior to release date in order to ensure timely delivery. As a result, preordered games, videos, DVDs and books cannot be canceled.


Some bull if you ask me. But will prob try an cancel if one of the 3 retailers come with more pre-orders.

Usually ya, but buy.com has a policy of "no refund for pre-orders" on their website. I thought I'd have a harder time but I guess I lucked out

Avoid buy.com like the plague. Their CS is worse than DeepDiscount.com, if you can imagine that.

Sorry, I have to disagree. My buy stuff is always on time. As opposed to eight weeks late at DD, becuase the were selling stuff they didn't know if they had or when it would be in stock.

Unless you mean CS reps, which I have.never needed to talk to buy, so I'd personally have trouble believing.

I was thinking the same thing. And for anyone else who was thinking of cancelling your order, maybe this will change your mind.

I'm sure this was a fluke and the buyer won't pay but still worth noting that there is high demand for the Loot Chest Edition.

Agreed. It took me 3 phone calls and 3 emails just to get a decent response for a messed up order. I wanted to return but they say it is already opened and past the return window, I tried to explain that it was because they are so slow to reply to my return request. Final settlement was a $5 gift card, and I got tired to argue further.

Sweet Jesus. I was already scared because what would presumably be the PC version of this set didn't say PC anywhere on the page. Couple that with the disaster stories and questionable pre-order policies and I think I'll just wait until someone doesn't pick up one of the 15 or so copies preordered at my local GS.

Damn I hope some more of these are put back up for pre-order. I honestly didnt think it would sell out like this. With all the CE's that drop these days, its hard to pull the trigger at full price.

I'm in the same boat. I honestly did not think these would sell out. I'm hoping I can get one from an Amazon restock like I did with the first portal gun.

I'm so glad I reserved my copy at Gamestop when I did!

Also... I talked to a couple of employees and they seemed pretty certain they wouldn't be getting more to preorder, so I think Gamestop is done. Not sure about Amazon or Best Buy.
