Hey guys,
I looked and didn't see that this was posted anywhere, so I'm posting this.

Newegg has Halo CE Anniversary for pre-order for $29.99 right now. I have no idea how long this will be up for, so act quickly if you're going to be getting it.

They had an earlier preorder sale that was supposedly for a limited time, but I guess not enough people took the bait so they've extended it to all preorders.

I pre-ordered it the first time they had the sale. I think this is the third time now. They don't charge you till it ships.

Yeah I remember that. This one is cool because it's without a promo code :)

If I lived outside California, I would've jumped on the Newegg deal since I wouldn't have to pay tax and the Newegg deal is a straight-up discount rather than getting back store credit. But since I do live in Cali, I preordered at Amazon.

Newegg is a great place to shop otherwise and it's where I tend to get my PC parts.

My bro lives in New York now for school, and all of a sudden, it's better to buy from Newegg than Amazon because of the tax situation there.

Amazon already has $10 preorder credit for this. Can't see them matching Newegg either; since Newegg's deal is $10 off with no credit, it is effectively the same as Amazon selling for full price with $10 credit.

Awesome. I'd missed out on this the first time with Newegg, and am glad they were made it available again. :D

Thanks Op!

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

They dont have a pre order price guarantee do they? 30 minus the coupon I used for the first promo would be awesome.

$10 off is better than $10 credit in my eyes.

$10 off = 10/40 or 25% off.

$10 credit = 10/50 or 20% off. Plus you have to pay $40 upfront instead of just $30 upfront.

However I do like Amazon better but wish they would do money off instead of these every growing popular Gaming Credits everyone is doing now.

Although for a remake of an old game like this I won't give more than $15 for it.

Does newegg charge taxes in Texas? & What carrier do they use when you choose free shipping, fed ex/ups or usps(united states postal service)?

you could place an order at newegg, fill in all the blanks then click cancel. you'd know if there was tax or not.

No tax. And typically UPS.

I'm torn on this. Just got back into Reach, by the time I get bored of it this will probably be at the $20 price point.. MW3 is coming out too.. But $30 is a good price. Got an xbox and halo 1 when it first came out and it's one of my favorite games, so maybe I'll bite.

Well yeah. Saving money upfront is obviously better. What I'm saying is there's not a chance that Amazon going to offer credit and match Newegg's price.

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you get the game from Amazon on the release day and you don't with Newegg? That's what the word on SD is.
