Here is a list of all the known games on Amazon that come with a gift card or gaming credit. If the Amazon price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you'll receive the lowest price. Release date delivery is available on many of these titles, which is free for Amazon Prime members.

The status of these offers fluctuates. Please read the details on the Amazon product page before ordering.

:360::ps3::wii:LEGO Lord of the Rings $10 Credit
:psp: Silent Hill: Book of Memories $5 Promotional credit toward the purchase of Silent Hill HD Collection or Silent Hill: Downpour.
:psp:Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz (Vita) $5 Credit
:wii::ds:Victorious: Taking the Lead $5 Credit
:360::ps3:XCOM: Enemy Unknown $15 Credit


Sometimes accurate pudding on Amazon is located here.

really useful thread...although i already have 3 of these games preordered (and also took advantage of the uncharted 2 instant credit so i guess i used 4).

hopefully amazon keeps doing more of these promotions so i can pre order more games.

Anyone know if this credit can be applied to points cards? Like 1600 MP points for XBL?

You can use it for the physical cards, not the digital delivery codes (i think).

Awesome thread, Cheapy. I've already pre-ordered Brutal Legend and GTA Episodes. Thinking of ordering Dragon Age too. I love Amazon.

Yea this thread has been long overdue. Might think about getting New Super Mario Bros Wii. I didn't know you get a $10 credit. It pops up in my GB often.

Modern Warefare 2 had a $10 one, but they took it down.

correct. It also won't work on any of the individual xbox live game codes, nor can you use the ECA discount. The download system for that seems to bypass the normal checkout system

I'm an Amazon noob. I'm hoping to go for Uncharted 2, Smackdown, and Modern Warfare 2 using the ECA discount, and get free shipping with a Prime trial.

If I was to pre-order U2 and Smackdown, could I then use the two codes on Modern Warfare or does it limit it to one code use per order?

Or could I preorder U2 and Smackdown now (to ensure I get the $10 credit), get my code that comes with U2 when that ships, then go back and apply that to my Smackdown pre-order before that ships?

And if I could apply my U2 code to my Smackdown pre-order, I'd still get the code that comes with Smackdown?

And would all of this stack with the ECA and a Prime trial?

I know this might be a question overload but if anyone could give me an answer it'd be greatly appreciated.

Bolded your questions with numbers so I can refer to them.

1. It's iffy. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. Most of the time you're only allowed one promotion. The only exception is ECA.

3. Yes, you'd get both $10 credit codes.

4. It would all stack. ECA + Prime + Promotion.

As for 2, I was somewhat wondering the same thing. I have a few pre-orders already made that have Gold Box discounts that I would prefer not to cancel. I mainly wasn't sure about the hit/miss rate on e-mailing Amazon's CS asking them to apply the promotional code to an order I already made.

Awesome, I had originally cancelled my pre-order of Kingdom Hearts since I was not going to be in a rush to play it day 1. With the $10 credit though I re-ordered it, and luckily enough it and the guide were also in my Gold Box today :). After everything and ECA I got both for $36.80, with the game being here tomorrow and the guide on Wednesday. New Super Mario Bros Wii was also in my Gold Box, so I did that one as well, came out to $39.89.

The same thing happened with me and Super Mario Bros, except I had to cancel due to money issues last week. But now I'm paid! :)
I went ahead and took advantage of the $10 discount and reentered my order!! I love the Super Mario Brothers games, always have.. I can't wait, looks like it will be so much fun on the Wii. :)
I mean just check it out:

New Super Mario Bros. Wii, like all the previous releases in the Super Mario Bros. franchise is a side-scrolling platforming game where players collect coins as they attempt to make their way through progressively more difficult game levels using their ability to time jumps over obstacles and avoid a slew of enemies. But although the game contain several well-deserved nods to previous games in the series in the form of iconic characters like Mario, Luigi and two Toads, as well as familiar enemies, sound effects and levels, it is not simply another trip down Mario Bros. memory lane. Taking advantage of the flexibility and power of the Wii and Wii Remote, New Super Mario Bros. Wii manages to preserve the retro experience that fans love about the series, while adding new game features. Notable additions among these include, expansive play levels and new powerups and characters, but by far the most important, and in fact game-defining new feature is simultaneous multiplayer.."

Agreed, Amazon is not doing us favors by sticking it only to the Non-CE.... I'd gladly pony up if it was on the CE.

At least we can take some comfort in knowing we got a pretty good deal when these games show up as $30 or less on BF. Uncharted 2 will be one, guaranteed (but who the hell is going to wait lol).

I emailed them last week about it. All they said back is that they thanked me for my suggestion. :-s
