Hey Guys don't know if this was posted already but I didn't see it. Amazon is offering a $20 promotional credit for pre ordering. It's also on the product page under Special Offers. Don't how long it'll last.

Oh snap amazon may be getting back into the $20 pre-order credit business. I remember when it was pretty much a standard offer with all new major releases. Pretty good for those who like amazon but I'm sticking with my BB pre-order.

It's under special deals/offers

Order "Dead Space 3" and receive a $20 promotional credit toward the purchase of items shipped and sold by Amazon.com (certain exclusions apply, including but not limited to Kindle books, Gift Cards, and Amazon Appstore for Android apps). We will send you a promotional code via email within two days after your order ships. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com. This offer will be extended to all existing pre-orders. Limit one per household. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time. Here's how (restrictions apply)

As much as i like this, AAA games rarely drop more than $20 in the first 2 months. At least with this amazon credit, the drop is guaranteed, so i dont have to worry about PM.

Don't get too excited; Amazon isn't doing this on their own they are just Price Matching Walmart.

Is Amazon still stupid about preorders where only one version will get the credit? Meaning if I preorder both the 360 and PS3 version of DS3 on the same account I'll only get one $20 credit?

Some of these items ship sooner than the others. Show details

Buy the selected items together

Army of Two and Sim City are also part of the $20 promo for amazon. So yeah, you're right they are just PMing Walmart.

^ But at least they are Price Matching early and not waiting until the Thursday after release (ala Battlefield 3) essentially screwing over those that preordered early.

You know once Walmart takes down their deal, Amazon will take theirs down within 2 hours.

Gotta get that item back to regular status asap!!

Fantastic. In for Dead Space, considering SimCity.

Man, remember when almost every major game had a $20 credit? So nice to get things on release day as opposed to waiting a week or two for the $40 sale.

It also says you get the credit two days after your order ships so that's better than having to wait a month for your $20 RZ certificate like Best buy.

That is better, but if you plan on getting quite of few of the AAA games that follow DS3, then BB is the way to go. If Amazon did continue to have $20 promotional credit for every major release then Amazon wold have my money.
