Take the $20 and go on? I'm sure someone on here would give you their GS emblems for the $20 credit. lol

Well amazon is saying they cant find anything about the emblems at all and want me to show them an email or website with that info. They gave a 20 dollar credit though. Still want those codes.

For everybody waiting on the MS pre-order bonus I just got an e-mail from them indicating we should be getting them throughout the day tomorrow. They said they will be generating the codes then. It's silly but it is what it is.

I don't know about your emblems.....I was missing my Web Skin from Amazon, I got into a chat with a CSR and within 5 minutes I had a skin code. I don't remember seeing any emblems mentioned, just the skin and the $10 video credit.

check your email, my codes came in this afternoon.

Really cant go wrong here. Selling the game to a buddy for $50 (got a $45 copy from Newegg for myself) and the Pulse Armor for 1600 MSP. Ended up paying $9.99 out of pocket for a $25 coupon AND a 1600 MSP card!

So, Amazon, after taking two days to send me an e-mail, after being completely useless in live chat, gave me promo credit for $20 off Roxio Game Capture or Game Capture Pro and has made no mention of any emblems. This is rather useless to me as I have no interest in either of those products.

In any case I really don't care anymore. It's not worth putting any more time or effort into getting a couple exclusive Spartan armor tattoos. Best of luck to anyone who pursues the issue further.

I picked up mine today at BB and all the dlc an the extra 800 MSP were all on the receipt. They screwed up the 12 month xbl and halo 4 package but after 3 tries they got it. They let me have the cardboard Halo 4 countdown clock thing haha

Not bad but I'll do you one better. I pre-ordered Halo 4 from Best Buy for $65 including tax. Sold both pre-order bonuses separately for $37 total. Will get the $20 cert in a month or so. Then, sold the game today sealed for $60. I made $117 total. Even after the ebay, paypal and shipping fees, I'll still get at least a $35 profit.

I pre-ordered the hardened edition of Black Ops 2 for $88 including tax and from the looks of it on ebay, can get anywhere from $100-$150 plus I'll also get the $20 cert from Best Buy.

After that is Far Cry 3 which I already pre-ordered at Best Buy. I'll sell the pre-order DLC but I'll try out the game despite the fact that I hate FPS but the game looks great and I want to see if I can get into it. Worse case scenario is that I'll break even.

Overall though including selling off DLC codes, I can actually make a solid profit. Never realized how much those DLC codes are worth on ebay. Cant believe that people actually pay so much for a damn DLC code. Oh well, better for me.

Paid about 45 for Halo 4 from Amazon (had some giftcards). Got some Locus Helmets from promotions, sold one for $50, sold the other for $23, and traded the third one for forest skin & deadeye helm.

Also sold the bulletproof emblem for $10 and a 2nd one for $5. This game's preorder bonuses has paid the game off, lol.

I currently have one more Bulletproof emblem and should soon have another Locus helm if anyone is interested in purchasing or trading.

Yep, DLC codes sell so do online passes. I have over 500+ feedback and I'd say about 85% of it is from selling online passes & dic codes.

It looks like eBay is closing down listings that are just selling DLCs...I'm worried about the codes I've sold already. I don't know if they are gonna put a hold on the funds or anything...

Just sold my BBY codes for $26. I feel kind of bad because it was a guy stationed overseas but he seemed stoked about getting them. I have the GS codes from a different purchase and I am hoping to get $35 for all 7. I could care less about cosmetic stuff like this.

There are a lot of them so I would not worry. The real way you will get caught is if someone complains. I have sold about 50 codes the last 2 months and never had one auction shut down. People are looking for honest deals so as long as you don't send them a bad code you should be good.

ebay closed my listings twice but i think it might be other "competitors/ sellers" who are doing the reporting to ebay, not ebay actively searching them out..

How the hell did you get all those codes anyway? Did you actually preorder the game multiple times?

I got the Oceanic armor from walmart's 35 cent offer a few weeks ago. I only grabbed one, but I guess I could have grabbed multiple copies if I had been smart enough to do so. So it's easy to understand how people who have multiple Oceanic armor codes got their codes. But I'm not aware of any other slip-up like walmart did when they offered the preorder bonus for purchase.

How are you guys getting banned? It's been my belief that according to eBay policies, you can list DLC as long as you state that you're going to send them the piece of paper with the code on it. It's only the "email only" auctions that get shut down, right?

Digital items are prohibited on eBay. However, you can sell a piece of paper with a code on it.

I got burned back when Halo Reach came out. I decided to sell the flaming helmet code which went for about $50 at the time. The buyer paid for it, I sent the code, then they turned around and disputed the transaction with eBay and PayPal. I lost the code and the buyer got it for free.

I have been really lucky with my buyers.. i have sold over 300 dlcs on ebay and never had an issue so far.. I am kinda expecting it for this run though because I think Halo has a lot of immature players..

So... if you just write the code on a piece of paper and send it off in a envelope eBay can't do anything, right? Especially if you put tracking on it.

First, its such bullcrap. There's literally hundreds of codes for Halo 4 alone and thousands overall if you look for them. Ebay just likes picking on people for no apparent reason.

Second, I love that quote from ebay. Protect the people? Hmmm, what people? This is even bigger bullcrap. I purchased the game and since I own the rights to that actual copy and what comes with it since possession is 9/10ths the law, I can do whatever the hell I want with the code. Its not my fault if people are willing to pay for DLC items.

And quite honestly, these companies make a killing off of DLC and if I have the actual product, why cant I do the same?

After this gen, im done with gaming because once this industry goes all digital, every consumer will be 100% screwed and NOT in a good way.
