I preordered halo 4 from MS so I could get the $25 bonus a while back. I used my debit card. They put a hold on the $60 for a couple days. Sucked for me as I didn't expect it and only had $65 in my checking account at that time. Would have waited to order if I had known. Just an FYI to those who read the "card won't be charged until game is shipped" bit.


Same here, thought they were going to wait till it shipped but I guess using a debit card puts a hold on your account.

Called up MS and cancelled as I need the money more then the game.

I chatted with 'Tom' at Microsoft Store. No "Borderlands 2 Premiere Club" content with this preorder.


Kyle: I am considering pre-ordering Borderlands 2 through the Microsoft Store because of the pre-order bonus offers of 1600 MS Points card and $10 off a future order. Tell me, does it also come with the "Borderlands 2 Premiere Club" content in the game? (gold guns, token, additional Class)
Kyle: That is a pre-order bonus offered by several retailers
Tom: I am very sorry but we are currently out of stock on this product.
Kyle: Oh I know. I plan on checking back later
Tom: Just a moment while I look into that for you.
Kyle: if, of course, the "Borderlands 2 Premiere Club" content comes with it.
Tom: I am very sorry but it does not.


I wonder why? All pre-orders come with the Premiere Club stuff, don't see why they wouldn't include them with the copies MS gets.

Either way, there will probably be a deal near release date with a $20 GC or something. I don't need the points so I'd rather have the GC, and this will be the only time I use the MS Store so the $10 MS Coupon will be useless to me.

If you want borderlands 2 I'd get it through Best Buy, if you can still get it pre-ordered for store pick-up where you're at. Save your $7 in shipping. Sign up for Gamers Club unlocked for $15, get a $20 giftcard and have a year of coupons to use. You come out about the same but get BB coupons and deals for a year and will have a copy in your hands at midnight.


Yeah, Best Buy looks the best by far with this. I have a twenty buck credit with Amazon right now, not sure what I'll do.

If my Best Buy store has a midnight release I would have to walk about five miles home, though. May be worth it, be part of history and part of a grand adventure.

Escapist says it does include the premier club. http://www.escapistm...n-Borderlands-2

I'd assume that Escapist was wrong but I've talked to so many useless customer reps over the years.

I emailed Microsoft regarding the confusion with showing a receipt for the promo $10 and 1600 Microsoft points card. They said that those items would be given to us 10 days after our game has been shipped. These will be codes that will be given to us through e-mail. The receipt is needed to get the promo code/ 1600 points if you pre-ordered in store.

So they are doing this in store as well? Called three stores in California yesterday and all of them had no idea.

Sorry, the Microsoft rep didn't address that in the e-mail. She just mentioned if I wanted to do this in-store then I would have to find a store location and contact them. If anything, you should contact them through email if they might have more specific information.

Gotcha. If it is anything like the points promo they did for when I got my windows phone it will work out like this : they send you a code to go back on the website and order a PHYSICAL points card, they do not email you a points code.

According to Gearbox, it's only select retailers (Amazon, Best Buy & Gamestop), not every first day copy of the game.

I just called Microsoft Store Corporate and they told me this deal is online only and the B&Ms aren't going to be doing it. Damn shame, I know I want both BL2 and RE6 day one, so I don't know if I'll be doing this.

Nobody knows yet. Fine print says gift card not eligible for use on pre-orders. We'll find out in 2 weeks when those who bought borderlands 2 get there gift card.

Went ahead and ordered Sesame Street, I'm sure we'll be able to dump it for $10-15. I was planning on preordering Halo 4 from the MSStore anyways, so I'll use the credit towards that, and then use the $25 credit towards a year of XBL.

Pretty good deals for some games not part of BBY's promo, especially if you don't want to take your chances pricematching.

You have to navigate through the obnoxious game lists to find Just Dance 4 and Black Ops 2 since they don't come up through search. Anyways, I preordered Just Dance 4. That brings it up to 3 preorders with this promo with Dance Central 3 and Sesame Street from a while ago. This deal is going pretty well for games not on Best Buy's preorder program.

If you have a Discover card then don't forget Shop Discover 10% cash back for MS Store

I preordered BL2 on 9/5 and it came out to $63.74 w/ tax

I just got my cash back pending email today:
You've Earned Additional Cashback Bonus Through ShopDiscov​er
Microsoft Store 09/05/2012 $6.00

Edit: looks like Shop Discover 10% is gone, they went back to 5% now

Still not sure this is a great deal. Shipping takes 3-7 days. I wonder if that's business days. Still too long to wait for an extra ten dollar bonus compared to best buy or new egg deals in my opinion.

I think Black Ops 2 and Borderlands 2 I'll buy at Best Buy, but other games I'll get through this deal.

Those 2 games, I'm going to be annoyed if I'm not playing them day one when everyone on my friends list is. Games like Assassins Creed 3, I can wait a week to play it.

I just tried to buy a bunch of games, but my shopping cart kept hanging. Not sure if it can't handle all the stuff in the cart or if too many CAGs are on there right now shopping.
