Good deal, I hadn't seen this yet but had already been planning on using the 50% off coupon from the trade-in deal to get Madden. Sweet gets sweeter. :)

Nice that is a pretty sweet deal:applause:. I'm still wondering if I should pick up NCAA as well.

Do you get the $10 GC if you've ALREADY pre-ordered it?

Typically you do unless the terms and conditions specific a promotional period with a beginning date and an ending date.

So once again my willpower will be put to the test over whether or not to get Madden. I really liked last year's edition, put about 12 or so full seasons into a franchise. If I get the football jones again I'll probably just pick that one back up. Or so I tell myself now.

The terms definitely include existing preorders. As usually, I'm saving a copy of the terms in case I don't receive the gift card.

Pre-ordered at GS and Amazon. Net the $10 and return Amazon copy to GS.

That's interesting. I thought Madden 09 was horrible; the AI was ridiculously dumb, especially on offense (read: HB/FB's that run lateral even though there is a huge opening).

I really want to get a GOOD football game. Guess I won't be buying Madden since they own the exclusive rights for NFL.

Good deal though, with this + ECA.

I am going to try to resist this year.
Nothing fell faster then the price of Madden 09 last year.
I think the Xbox version of the CE was like $40 at Target within weeks.

Yes me too, However last years was slightly improved IMO I still feel there is a long way for it to go. Well anyway the debate continues, this offer is going until release chances are i will grab it but we will see.

Last year I bought it... but traded it in shortly after. Most say it was much improved from 08. Really Madden has been the best game around (only) for a while.There were major missteps in this GEN but they have created the top football game around and they have surpassed 2K5 in many years. This deal is great just wonder if ECA is worth it for me? I guess with an eye set towards the CAG most holy day (Black friday) This could prove useful.

I've been looking for some kind of promotion on Madden 10. So far, besides GameStop's 2-day shipping, this is the best. Shipping doesn't help when you're going to pick it up at the store. :(
Looks like I'll preorder this sometime soon. Maybe I'll wait for some kind of promotion from Best Buy.

In true cheapass fashion, I think I'm going to get NFL 2k5 at EB for $.50 on Monday and not buy another football game again. :lol:

I did but it was only because I tried to use it on 360 version of NCAA 10 and then the PS3 version of the game. At that point it wouldn't let me use it on the PS3 version.

Did you already place an order earlier today? This is covered in the ECA thread.

I have bought it every year since the very beginning (Sega Genesis) days, so it seems like this is a good deal 46.99 after you get the 10 GC.

New price was already reflected in my pre-order when I checked it this morning, even with the ECA discount.

Sorry to bump this thread. The deal is still alive though, so I hope nobody gets pissed about it.

Now, I noticed they're not offering release date delivery on this. Does anyone know when I should expect the game to show up if I chose overnight shipping? I haven't ordered a new release from Amazon in quite some time, so I'd like to know what to expect.

I actually sent an email to Amazon about this because the game is on their Release Date Delivery games list. I'll post once I hear from them.

Games have usually arrived on their release date in my case if overnight has been selected, so I think you'll get it on day 1 with this option as well.

I've also contacted Amazon regarding the "Release-date Delivery" and recieved this as a response:

"Hello from Amazon.com.
I'm sorry to learn that you are unable to place the order using Release-Date Delivery shipping option.
I've checked the product detail page of this item "Madden NFL 10" on Amazon.com, and it appears the item is not currently eligible for Release-Date Delivery shipping option.
We only offer the Release-Date Delivery option when we know we can get the item from our suppliers in time to meet our delivery promise to you. It is possible that this item will become eligible as the release date gets closer and we've confirmed our inventory.
At this time, I can only suggest that you check back on Amazon.com at a later time."

I've responded with a link to their "Release-date delivery" sub-category, so they can hopefully figure this all out. I'll let you all know if I have any luck so you can follow-up with them if needed.

Wait when did they take off release date delivery for this? I paid for that 2 weeks ago when I ordered it.

Edit: Just checked my order from July 31 and release date delivery is on there with the estimated delivery date of the 14th. Maybe they're out of copies to have release date delivery for?
