You can't. And unless you want to spend a half hour or more complaining to a CSR to try and get the promo code reapplied, don't count on getting the discount if you re-order. On top of that, you can't just cancel one item from a pre-order. You have to cancel the whole order and lose all your promo codes. Place orders individually and make sure you have a reliable card.


I've been amazed at what a black hole Newegg customer service is for these types of issues. I've likely just been spoiled by Amazon over the years, but there seems to be a no-budging-tough-luck policy in place there that's a wee bit over the top.

Hey, I just realized that in 6 months, I'll be able to say the same thing, because by then my fiance and I will be married, and she likes KH and I don't.


Same here...except my fiancée doesn't like most video games :(.

But I'm in for NSMB2! :)

Real-time. Demo is on the 3DS eShop if you or your wife are interested.

Thanks for the response.

In for NSMB2. Didn't grab it with the 10 dollar off promo last time because there was a shipping charge.

Never pre-ordered from NE before. How close to the release date do you typically receive the game?



I pre-order from NewEgg all the time. Their usual "Free Shipping" promotion is 3-Day shipping. Of the 20+ games I've pre-ordered - all with Tuesday release dates - I'd say 3 have arrived in two days (Thursday), the rest have arrived on the third day (Friday).

If you must play a game Day 1, this would not work for you. I game on the weekends, and seldom on the weekdays, so this is perfect for me.

And your credit card is not charged until the order ships. 8-)

That's not what I was told when I emailed Newegg's CS:

My email

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to place a preorder on a video game using a $12 off promotion, but the credit card available to me will expire before the item ships (sometime in 2013). I will automatically receive a replacement credit card about when my current card expires, but that will not occur until after the preorder promotion has ended. If I place the preorder with the to-be-cancelled card now, will I be able to have the card used to pay for the preorder changed through Newegg Customer Service once I receive the replacement credit card?

Thank you for your help.


Their response

Dear ------,

Thank you for contacting Newegg.

For your case, please kindly note that you can use your current credit card to pre-order and then you can call our phone center at 800-390-1119 during Monday - Friday: 05:30 AM - 05:30 PM PST to change the credit card number once you get your new credit card. Please kindly notice that the credit card information can only be changed before your order is authorized. Thank you for your understanding in advance.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please visit our FAQs page. If you still require any assistance, please feel free to reply directly to this email.

Thank you,

Abby
Newegg Customer Service

Now, my replacement credit card (which I now have) has the exact same number as its predecessor--the one used for the preorder--but a different CVV2 number (the security code on the back), so I'm not sure if I need to contact the number for the phone center.

Nice, ordered NSMB. First time pre-ordering from Newegg. 4-7 day shipping kinda sucks, but I'm not too impatient, I can wait. Or if Best Buy ends up doing a comparable deal I may cancel and buy from there. We'll see. Thanks OP!

Apparently your comment was so full of rage and anger that you immediately fell asleep. That's a new level of rage.

Had together NSMB2- newegg doesn't have tax and first party AAA titles NEVER go on sale!

Was planning on getting this anyway, and for $10 less and no tax, it'd be silly to pass this up.

Being that I'm in PA, Newegg shipping from NJ is usually pretty fast. Average waiting time is around 2 days.

Definitely in on this. Just got a 3DS and NSMB2 is sure to be as good a game as any to test it out. Not to mention that first-party Nintendo retain their value pretty solidly for a few months after release, I'll flip this one as soon as I'm done with it.

That last sale on Newegg made me realize there are a lot more 3DS titles I'm looking forward too owning than I thought. I bit on this sale, I figure I can enjoy this title pretty quick and get most of my money back on a trade in.

Slightly OT but Newegg-related: I just noticed that the Journey Collector's Edition (listed as Journey Compilation), which I totally forgot about during the $10 off preorders promotion, is up for preorder. I could have had that for $19.99... :bomb:

It was $10 off games $39.99 and up, not $29.99 and up.
