Apparently if you email amazon about promo credit you get in a never ending loop about it being automatic lol... I don't think they actually read emails, perhaps they just copy paste something. That's been my experience anyway.

Same here. Yesterday I emailed about the Dante's Inferno credit and they replied back saying "The two promotional certificates for $10 was automatically added to your account, and you won't receive a claim code." Yeah, I specifically said there was $20 on my account from preordering Mag and Bioschock 2, but I was waiting on the credit from Dante's Inferno. Reading our emails would really help.

I also have not received my Dante's Inferno credit, though my Bioshock credit arrived quickly.

Sent another email and got them to add a $10 credit to my account. I'm not sure what the holdup is with the credits for Dante's Inferno.

Heavy Rain just dropped by a dollar I think. It's $54.96 now. Hopefully a credit comes soon

Not for me. I emailed about the Bioshock 2 credit last Wed. Day and a half later, no response, so I called and they gave me a $10 promotional credit right away. Now, this morning, I get an email response with another $10 credit. Not that I'm complaining, but what are they doing over there?

Yup, copy and paste e-mail I got. I assume they were talking about my mass effect 2 credit. I didn't bother e-mailing again.

Still no Dante here either, what is their problem with these.

This is probably the issue:

Apparently, their promotions department is small and works only M-F, so they're a bit overwhelmed at times, from what the rep told me.


From a phone call I had with Amazon over my Dante's Inferno credit.

Dunno' if it was just a fluke and they're going to change it, but I decided to jump on BC2 because of the 20 dollar credit toward a future purchase. I was toying with the idea of the 2 day shipping with the Prime trial and was clicking through the shipping options. I selected release date delivery and it was only 5 dollars.

I went ahead and confirmed the order and it was only 65 dollars with a supposed delivery date of March 2nd. I thought release date delivery was outrageously expensive?

Just thought I'd mention it, if anyone else wants to give it a try.

Was your credit $20? Mine was only 5 and I've been toying with it for awhile and no luck. They e-mail you a code, right?

Yeah. My credit was still $20 and the game price was $59.99. I just thought it odd, because release date delivery is something like 20 dollars extra isn't it (usually?) Except it was only 5 bucks.

For some odd reason it only gave me $5 credit toward T.V. seasons.
Another question, I have standard shipping right now, and it says est delivery is March 8-10, will that change? Has anyone done standard shipping on preorders before? When does it usually deliver?

This has been said twenty times already in this thread: The $20 credit code won't be sent until the game ships....just as your credit card won't be charged then. The TV code is different and in addition to the $20 credit.

Around 4 emails from me with responses, and I finally got credit. Ended up saying this was my last email and that its more hassle than its worth, and they need to correct their automated system.

Got a response that said they viewed my account and it listed that I had 20.01 in my account, and to place an order. If I was not able to use the credit, they would apply the difference to the order.

Emailed them back w/ my order, they added the $10.01 difference, and told me they were sending a tech request to figure out why the system shows me with 20.01 credit, but only $10 showing up at checkout.

So many emails, but finally a /real/ response.

I just noticed that the $10 I got from Mass Effect 2 expires at the end of this month. Sorry if this has been asked, but can I use the $10 to preorder a game that doesn't ship until after the credit expires?

The Show 10 shipps 2 days after my credit expires :|

Of course, I used my MW2 credit on Bioshock 2... Came out three months later than MW2

Bummed that Battlefield went up, I'm not sure if I should order now. $20 credit is mighty tempting though.

I'd be willing to bet they add a promo credit a couple of days after it releases, but raise the price back up.

If you like shooters, I see this as a very hard deal to pass up.

I think I've spent just as much time (if not more) in the Battlefield Bad Company 2 demo than I have in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Then again, that may not mean much, lol

If they do this, they would piss lots of people off. Extending an offer beyond launch is ok, but giving a new credit right after launch is undeniably screwing people.

It's happened before.

Does anyone know much about this pre-order bonus of another episode? It seems it's available from more than one place, so I'm wondering if it won't be free on PSN. Similar to the Joker pre-order bonus for Batman: AA.

They've done it in the past, so don't be surprised.

That Bad Company 2 deal looks awfully tempting.

How is it that people are getting charged for Release-Date shipping when I'm not even a Prime member or free trial member and I've got it free on every major release for the passed 6+ months? Does location play a part in that?

This game is a no brainer and to purchase it from Amazon is also a no brainer. I wish Amazon had a special weapon to go with their pre-order like GS....oh well can't get them all.

EA is trying to give people a reason to pick up bad company 2 new. Like ME2, this'll have a access code to get to their "VIP" goodies of "free content". Access that'll cost you money if you buy it later down the road or used.

I'm pretty sure the pre-order only gives you 'early access' to a game mode and a weapon that you can unlock later on.

$20 dollars sounds much better, no matter what pre-order Bonuses GS throws at us.
