Get new friends. Problem solved.


LOL it's actually a clan thing, 20+ members that I play Battlefield 3 with regularly.

That I haven't purchased an XBLG subscription in more than a year and have been mooching 1-month codes from various promotions is a determining factor as well.

Still thinking about it. I guess I could always sell everything off without any hitches.

edit: I pulled the trigger. Not knowing if MSFT would do an end-of-year sale to utilize the $25 off from Halo was the kicker. I'll either sell it along with the 1600msp (sitting at over 5k now) or play it if the hype machine works its magic on me. Thanks for letting me know it came back in stock, fellas!

BLOPS 2 is back in stock with the promos. This means I get to use my $25 Halo credit on it!


Thanks, did the same.

Edit: Wait, how long does it take to show up in your order history? Because mine is not listed there...

Same here -- used my $25 off and it came out to $37 shipped w/ tax

Anyone buy 2 of the same games with $10/1600 pts promo in the past and get both offers? I know with Halo they said limit 3 and these $10/1600 pts promo shows limit 1, but wanted to know if anyone was able to get more than 1 offer for previous games? Bought 2 copies of Halo, used 1 $25 coupon just now, still have 1 more $25

Give it a half hour to an hour

Same here -- I think they allow more orders after some preorders get canceled (probably from people forgetting to update their CC info if its changed or card being rejected for not having enough funds) and they also allow extra copies to be sold (of course you'll have to wait a few days for them to get more copies in stock but you'll still get the preorder bonus)

Do you guys think that new BO2 ones include the Nuketown bonus? And will it come tomorrow or Wednesday (I highly doubt it, but you never know)?

Not sure -- people who get it tomorrow will post info on it

http://community.cal...ketown-2025-faq
The way they have worded the Nuketown FAQ on the website makes it sound like they're including the DLC code into the initial batch of games, but theres no telling when the initial batch will run out so it'll be a hit or a miss at each retailer

All retailer copies will have it included. Especially since this is the Microsoft store we're talking here, I'd be shocked if they didn't include it in the game case.

Now playing:

For some reason my Halo code is not working on this...hmmm
From MS Chat:
it is part of our pre-order policy that those codes cannot be used on clearance items or other pre-orders.
They claim I cant use my Halo 4 promo code on any pre-orders.

You'll get an email with tracking number

You can check your order status online -- if it shows "in process" then they're about to ship it, if it shows "preordered" then not yet

Copy/paste and make sure theres no space at the end

Yeh thought of that.. funny thing, Not signed in.. I can put the game in the cart... it then go to check out, it then takes the code until I enter in my email, address, CC info.. then price goes up to normal.

Login first then try to place the order

If it doesnt work then delete your payment info from that account (if its saved) and log out. Then create a new MS store account using a different email and try to use the coupon from the new account. You can use the same card since you deleted the payment info from the other account or if you have another CC then use that to pay for it or if you have someone else in the household then create the account under their name and use their card

sorry friend, you must not have caught an earlier post where i stated m$ wont allow you use GC towards pre-orders. (yeah, they're smart)

However, you can buy 1600 m$ points, for free basically and if u use xbox alot, this pays for itself. Pretty much, the first round of dlc for blops2 is on them.

Most people dont have problems rolling the bonus over to the next preorder. I've done BL2 -> AC3 -> Halo -> BO2 using the same account and saved CC. I ordered 2 Halo's from my first account so for the 2nd $25 coupon I created another account with my sister's info and used the coupon on there with a diff CC

MS store's website is a little crappy so it plays dumb from time to time -- you just have to get creative and try a bunch of things to get it to work

Workaround? One of my coupons worked, but the other one won't even give me an invalid code message. Anyone else have this problem?

I had 2 Halo $25 coupons and wanted 2 BO2 bonuses so I ordered 1 from my regular account and then created another account under my sister's name and used a diff email & CC for the 2nd order (same address)
