Does Amazon Post-order Price Match?

Pre-order Price Guarantee! Order now and if the Amazon.com price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you'll receive the lowest price. Here's how (restrictions apply).

He said Post-order, as in after the release date.

And the answer is no, not officially. If there's a price drop on an item a couple of days after being shipped to you, you might be able to get a partial refund or promo credit for the difference if you explain the situation to an Amazon CS rep, but again, Amazon doesn't officially post-PM.

Snap. Amazon stole back my preorder from Microsoft, who had stolen it from Best Buy, who had stolen it from Amazon. :lol:

It's hard to tell what post-order should mean. If you're being literal, it means after the order. Which might still be before the release date, esp in this case.

YMMV. Depends on who you get on the phone.

I was going to pre-order from MS Store but I'd rather have the $20 credit over the 1600 pts card that MS was offering. Probably will just put the credit towards MGS Rising

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.


This is not right. You get $20 + the chance to PM the game to $40 at BBY.

Ordered Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3 just to send Amazon the idea that we want more of these $20 preorders.

I might not even keep the preorders thought, since I own Dead Space 1 & 2 and Crysis 1& 2 and they are still in my backlog. Will likely cancel cause I don't want my backlog to grow. That said, this is tempting. And Dead Space 3 is priced at $57.09, so that's $3 saved on top of it all. I gotta play the Dead Space 3 demo and the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta so I can try them before release date.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV).

Damn you, Amazon. I wanted to wait till this game hit the 30 dollar price range. To my knowledge it didn't take long for the first two Dead Space games to drop in price. I need to think this over...

This is exactly how I feel. Although, I'm drawn to the promo credit, I got both my Dead Space games for $10 and $15. Somehow I see myself not liking this game more than 2 since it looks way to geared towards action instead of scaring the shit out of you. Since Fire Emblem Awakening is coming out in the same week, I think I might pass on this.

Nope. It says right on the product page under Special Offers and Promotions. You have to scroll down a bit, past "Customers who bought this item..." Kind of an inconvenient placement but it's there.

I also said the same thing, but that $20 extra promo credit is mighty tempting.. Just think of buying this game brand new for 40 bucks, while you collect 20 dollar rebate credit back.

I feel the exact same way as the other procrastinators. DS1 and 2 dropped in price extremely fast. There was a valid argument for picking up DS2 at full price because the LE came with DS Extraction. This time, it's just suits and guns.

Knowing that DS, like all other major action titles (gears for example), tends to drop in price almost by 50% soon after release, I must hold off. The other part that convinces me to hold off is that DS1 and especially DS2 are amongst the lowest value AAA trade-in credits anywhere.

Thank you Amazon for bringing credit back even if it means matching other companies! Glad your back on board :)

Also this was $57 for awhile. So $37 for a new release isn't bad if you factor in credit you'll spend nayways.

Which version is better for Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3: 360 or PS3? I don't want to start a flame war I just want to ask because I'm not super familiar with the earlier games.

yeah sticking with my bestbuy preorder deals. the ability to get the 20 off and to price match in 60 days is too much of a chance to get paid for playing new release games. only problem now is rushing through backlog, i.e. finishing dead space 1 n 2 before 3 comes out! :)

Crysis 2 looked better on PS3 from what I remember. You can expect to have multiple discs for the 360 version too. Overall they should be pretty similar though.

Best Buy already has a $20 credit - and that isn't factored into the PM. So if it drops to $50 in 59 days, you still keep the $20 credit and get $10 back. That's what he means ;).

Though im gonna order from Amazon since I have too much credit there as it is =]
