Then add what you're paying for the game. . .

I wish good games got cool threads like this; why oh why Halo is popular I'll never understand.

When I pre-ordered at Gamestop.com they had the $20 game credit. I see it's not listed with the item anymore. I hope they still honor that...

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Ordered through Best Buy. Between $20 GC, $10 worth of Reward Zone points, using my BB MasterCard, Gamer Club points, and Premier Silver points I will get $37 back in GC & Points. So basically $25.52 after all of that w/tax.

I wan't to support KM (Josh) & have been but they won't beat that.

I was just about to mention this to somebody, and bam here it is.

Quick question; can you even pre-order a game at Wal-Mart in person?

I wonder whats up with the latest Electronic Gaming Monthly saying this even though the GameStop and its site don't mention it,,,:

"GameStop Pre-order Bonus
Regardless of which version you buy, pre-ordering the game from GameStop (game-stop.com) gets you a token to download an exclusive Spartan Recon helmet with a special blast shield and the UA Multi-Threat Mjolnir Mark V(B) Armor, which has a unique chest plate and a grenade belt that isn't just for holding your pants up. It also comes with a $20.00 coupon for a future order."

this was on Page 41 of EGM 240.0

"...It also comes with a $20.00 coupon for a future order."

I preordered the Limited Edition Bundle (Reach console bundle) on August 12, 2010 at a GameStop store, and there is nothing on the receipt about this. The guy at GameStop doesn't know about it. Gamestop.com doesn't mention this $20 coupon on any of the halo reach preorder pages...

(says "(game-stop.com)" in quote due to a line break hyphen))

(sorry, i'm kinda drained atm :P)

I am curious if this sticky was paid for by Microsoft.

I am not trying to be a jerk (and this does serve a good purpose), and I doubt the above statement is true, but I'm merely curious that's all since there's been a lot of big releases that have come and gone that did not have a topic all to themselves made by CheapyD.

It's not a good idea for Kmart to announce the Halo deal late. I also preordered the Halo from Bestbuy though I prefer Kmart over Bestbuy because of SHC's hard work.

No, I would never post a paid advertisement and not label it as such. Also, this thread wasn't supposed to be sticked. I must have stickied in my "work area" forum where I created it.

Thanks for this, Cheapy. I've got my Legendary edition and console bundle waiting to ship.

I have a question, though. Wasn't GameStop offering $20 coupons with their Reach pre-orders before? If so, were they including that with the Legendary edition? I ordered mine two months ago online, but embarrassingly, I can't remember if they were offering that or not.
