Use coupon code EMCXPVX237 to drop the cost to $15.  Comes with a $15 mail-in rebate to make it free after rebate.

 

I know this game was almost universally panned and considered a massive disappointment, but free is free, right?  :lol:

I played it on Xbox. It's not great and repetitive overall, but it didn't deserve the 3's and 4's that it got. It's more of a 6 or 7.

Hmm not sure about this one, I got buzzed a bunch of times by their rebate. Has anyone gotten an ME3 rebate yet? Apparently they still haven't received my paperwork...

Ah, what the hell. An envelope, stamp, and letting them borrow money for a brief duration. The game has at least got to be worth that.

You have to use the code that the OP put in his post..... I just did the order and it is indeed 15 dollars at checkout with a 15 dollar mail in rebate visa card.

 

Thanks OP!

I sent in the rebate form for Venetica but haven't received another email saying my rebate is being processed. Also, when I go to use the tracking number from the email, it says the promo number is not vaild. Got a feeling I won't be seeing that $10 and it's got me hesitant to go for this offer.

I got the email from mass effect 3 saying its being processed. Checked the rebate status and it says the same thing. I bit on this, we will see what happens.

I hope anyone who's having rebate issues made copies of all materials submitted to the rebate.  You can try calling rebate people at https://newegg.rebat...com/contact.php or calling Newegg directly about the issue.  In the past, I had rebates that didn't go through because of UPS labels stuck directly on the UPC and they just gave me a refund for the rebate amount.

6. Not combinable with any other offer.

 

It seems you either get $5 off, or $15 rebate. Can't get both. Please let's know if you get the rebate in the end. thanks.

Exact same thing happened to me as well.  It's stopped me from trying any of their other free after rebate deals they've had lately.

I said I shouldn't have to pay MORE than the $1 I paid for Duke Nukem Forever (also crapware by Gearbox) and well, I guess I won't. ;)

You put your number in the wrong field.  After following that link from the email for checking status, you actually need to click the tab/link at the top of the page for "check rebate status."

 

Even if that seems to not work, it's Newegg and it's their own rebate.  If things get messed up, they'll take care of it.

Thanks for the tip. Not sure how I missed the "Check Rebate Status" option before. I did put the promo number and not my tracking number into the "Enter Promo Number" field originally though. Turns out they did receive my rebate and it's being processed.

You should get a second e-mail that they received your paperwork about a month after you send it in.  It then might take another month before your get the rebate in your mailbox.  I have done 3 of these.  I have gotten one back, have one confirmed and still in processing, and one for RCT3 not confirmed which I got when ME3 was free but out of stock.  That last one seems to be running very slowly.  Over a month without confirmation, but that makes sense since they must have gotten flooded with rebates from ME3.

Thanks.  Even RCT3 comes up as processing for me with that method.

Newegg's rebates take an extremely long time but I haven't missed one yet from their freebies.  I just got my first batch of rebates from March for the Brink, Mafia 2 etc rebates.

If I didn't have to loan Newegg my $15 for 6 - 8 weeks, this would be worth it.
