I stole this deal from SD, but it's pretty good and didn't see it mentioned on CAG.  SYWR Members can get $25.60 back when pre-ordering Titanfall for Xbox One.  I believe SYWR Membership is free.  I ended up also having an offer in the coupons area that gave an extra $10 cash back, so I was able to get $35.60 in rewards points with my order.  Others on SD also report having the extra $10 cash back coupon, so it may be pretty common.  Plus, Discover cardholders apparently also get another 10% cash back.

Shipping is free, but they don't seem to guarantee release date delivery, although it does say, "Arrives by On or near Presell date."

Thanks for posting this!  I was going to wait for Titanfall to go on sale, but I had 20 dollars in sywr already, so I Paid ~40 bucks, and got 30 bucks back in sywr.  Thanks so much for passing this along.

Great deal!!

 

Reminds me of the good ol' days when SHC-Gamer used to put up awesome deals at K-Mart.

 

I think I'm still gonna hold on to my my pre-order at BB, $48 + $10 RZ cert. (GCU).

 

I have a feeling BB and Amazon is gonna put gift card deal on top of this to sweeten the deal since dell, kmart, and other retailers have started giving $25 incentives...

Also if you have a shop your rewards account you can add a coupon that either takes $5 off the price or gives you $10 more back in rewards points:

I ended up paying $55 and getting 35 back in rewards, it's better than the current Best buy gcu deal to me. It would be nice if Best buy steps up though

Thanks WNYX585AM. I got it with for 53.96 because I had some points I didn't know I had and it covered the tax and little extra with $35 back that is a great deal on my next Xbox One(/PS4 when I get one) game.

Really tempted to this even tho I don't have an X1 and don't feel like the 360 version is worth a preorder. hmm...

Want to get in on a FREE HDTV or $440 cash?  Join the Conga Line fun right here through CAG!

FYI, this does work for the 360 version as well.  Paid $55 with $35 back in rewards.

 

I'm keeping it sealed until Digital Foundry's comparison of the 360 and Xbone versions comes out.  If the 360 version is trash, I'll just return it.  And since it's K-Mart, returns will be easy.  

 

I'm dying to play the game, but since it's the only thing I've got interest in on the Xbone right now, and I recently bought a PS4, I definitely can't justify buying an Xbone for it.

This isn't Kmart offering a great deal... this is Kmart having a shitty website that often incorrectly manipulates SYWR points. Hopefully you all receive the points promised... but don't assume you got them just because they were on the checkout page. Until they have posted to your SYWR account you haven't earned anything...

 

Been several deals with SYWR point glitches and the SYWR department refused to post them to peoples SYWR accounts.

Yeah, the best strategy is to check your SYWR points when you receive the game.  If you don't get the points, don't open the game and return it.  Unfortunately, you'll have missed out on any other preorder deals by that point.

I don't know how reliable their system is, but my email confirmation clearly shows the points on there, so I would hope they would somehow honor it.  Also, Kmart does crazy stuff with their SYWR points all the time that seems foolish for a retailer to do.  I recently got an email that they would give me an extra $10 in points if I spent $4 of my current points.

I know they do. I shop their often, but when they calculate adnormally high points and it isn't an advertised promotion more often then not those points don't post when your item ships / gets picked up.

 

This has happened several times in CAG threads---the most recent was the Donkey Kong / Animal Crossing Kmart thread. Very few people got the points as was described on the checkout screen or in their e-mail, even after the game shipped or they picked up it and the SYWR department refused to honor it.

 

It's not going to be a situation where bitching and complaining and threatening BBB action is going to get you the points.

 

Hopefully you all get the without a fight but unless the listing page says earn XX,XXX points and you use a legit coupon (not one picked out of thin air by a RNG) odds are you're not going to get the points.

FWIW, I got in on the DKCR3D deal, and I got my SYWR points no problem.  $30 for DKCR3D with $20 back in rewards.

It's pretty simple. For 99% of the in-store purchases if the points post on your physical receipt you earned them and they are yours. They will also immediately be in your SYWR account.

 

Online orders are a different beast. Most take awhile to post, some weeks. Some show up immediately. However if they don't post they only way they (the SYWR department) will honor the points for you is if it was a planned and advertised promotion. Your checkout screen or e-mail confirmation can say you're going to get a billion points you won't get them unless the SYWR department can see why you earned them----meaning they will verify any coupons you used were intended for your account and that the other bonus points were part of a promotion and not a glitch.

 

Their are people on SD that have a RNG that can randomly compute SYWR coupons for $10 on a $10 purchase or 15% back etc. and all it is doing is poaching SYWR coupons tied to others accounts.

Yes and many others didn't. And they didn't get the SYWR department to honor it. It also was glitching where people would get the points on the first game and not the second, third, fourth, etc. despite having a confirmation in checkout and on their e-mail receipt saying they'd earn that much.

 

I'm not saying you guys won't receive the points I'm just saying be careful and don't go in with the attitude that because you have an e-mail that says this or that that Kmart will honor it.

I literally added the game to my cart and added one coupon from SYWR's own site (I believe it was $10 in points for $50).  I don't see how that is exploitative/abusive like what you describe. As you say though, it may not matter either way.

Well in the case of a second, third, or fourth order it not applying, that mistake was on the people who attempted to use the bonus points multiple times.  I ordered DKCR3D, then waited for it to be processed before trying the same deal on Animal Crossing.  And it didn't work at that time, because I'd already received the max bonus points or whatever.

 

Certainly the SWYR system is terribly glitchy and shouldn't be relied on with 100% accuracy, but you also can't blame K-Mart when some people try to manipulate the system and it bites back.

I didn't say it was abusive---and it's not if it is a coupon attached to your own SYWR account.

 

What people on SD were doing was using coupons like Spend $10 get $10 in points to build up a $100 in points and then were using a coupons that say "Redeem up to $100 in points and we'll match 100%" to get stuff for free.

There's really nothing to worry about if you've got a K-Mart nearby.  If you don't get the points you were owed, return it.  The only bad part of this strategy is missing out on other preorder deals, but I don't think there are any deals anywhere close to $55 (plus tax) + $35 back in rewards at a store that sells pretty much anything you need (albeit at slightly higher prices).

I kept looking for a good deal on Titanfall but I forgot GCU gives us 20% off games on top of the $10 rewards certificate. I also had $10 in certificates already so it's probably the best deal I'll be able to get on it.

Looks like it is available again, not as many reward points though.  I got 15.50.  Used 7.00 and a 10$ off.  Net about 30.00.

You can win it free if you join my contest below though.  (shameless plug)
