Is anyone else having an issue using their $10 credit for preording Borderlands?


Not me. Mine worked fine.

sorry if this is a "noob" question, i've tried to read as much of this thread as I could.

When amazon says "1 per household" am I able to get 1 for PS3 and 1 for Xbox and still get the credit for both?

I preordered NHL 13 for ps3 and xbox and i only got 1 $15 credit, however I preordered borderlands 2 for ps3 and for xbox and I got 2 $10 credits. Calling amazon was no help as the representative really had no idea what the rules were and just read what was on the item page. His opinion that i was only able to get 1, but if that's true not sure why I got 2 for borderlands.. is there anything i'm missing?

amazon credits seem very unreliable to me and would probably be more reliable to order from newegg when they have their $10-$15 off preorders

Never got the $10 code for Borderlands 2 but the second CS rep did supposedly issue me a $10 promotional certificate which would be used the next time I buy something. I haven't tried it out yet.

You are legitimately only supposed to get one credit (per title, per address) no matter how many you order & on what systems. Amazon considers the games to be the same product for the purposes of their promotions, even though they have different SKU's, so you can only get one credit per game title, per account/address (per normal circumstances). I think you got lucky with the two Borderlands 2 credits, though I have seen/heard about it happening before (credits to same household for different versions of same game), so it's not unheard of. I certainly wouldn't expect that, as they will throw up that, "one credit per household," quote when you try to contact them about only getting one code for buying multiple console versions of a single game title. I hope that helps you a little, at least.

If you go to 'buy' a free mp3, it will show you your various types of credit if you click on "redeem a gift card or promo...." You don't even have to add it to your cart or anything.

Resident Evil 6 has a $10 preorder credit. I don't know if anyone posted about this yet.

Yeah, I know - just haven't done that yet. I'm afraid of looking there and not seeing the credit and then having to contact them again. In fact, that is the main reason I haven't looked yet ;).

No 2k13 credit.. I can't find a solid deal anywhere, and the Microsoft deal is sold out.

Guess I'm waiting till Black Friday.

Amazon still hasn't shipped my copy of Resident Evil 6 Anthology, I was supposed to get it today but the order info still says shipping soon, I may have to contact CS maybe they will throw $10 credit that the standard edition got (not that I'm counting on it). I'll cut them a break though since this is the first time something like this has happened, Amazon is usually really good at delivering on things time.... oh well I wasn't planing on playing RE6 until the weekend anyways

I never did get my Borderlands 2 credit but Amazon CS hooked me up. Next up for me is Lego Lord of the Rings. I would not have preordered that without the $10 credit offer so hopefully that one comes through with less hassle. That reminds me, I better screen cap that one too, just in case...

Would love to spend my 15 credit from XCOM on something else that will have credit, waiting for Blops 2 to either have credit or price drop

There is a bit of a major release drought till I think either late Jan to early feb, then some big games will be coming out again, so basically ya, this thread will probably be dead till then.

In other news, amazon offerings kinda got steam rolled by some of the big B&M stores. I know last year i was almost exclusively shopping at amazon, but I think i bought most of my big fall games at best buy this year.
