How would I have gotten the other $5 I was missing?


You had to enter the code HALOODST at checkout.

I am now satisfied after seeing the Hardened edition get the $15 as well. I'm paying $63 total for it and I'm getting a $15 gift card. That is an amazing deal. I'll apply that $15 and my $5 from Uncharted 2 to get the God of War collection for less than $20. Hopefully ECA is back up by then.

Did I miss something? How are you paying $63 for the hardened? the MSRP is 80 and if you subtract the ECA discount, that means you got an extra $10 off?

Is this retroactive, do you know?

Pre-ordered it a while back.

It should be, since we pre-ordered it and Amazon sent emails to those that did stating the credit changed from $10 to $15.

Great job by Amazon! I also got the email that they were applying the 15 credit to my existing hardened preorder. I was thinking of cancelling and sticking with the regular edition before they sent that email.

I can't wait to see what they have in store for us on Black Friday!!

So standard and hardened get $15 credit, but the PRESTIGE gets a measly $10?! I thought Prestige customers would be treated equally, if not better, than the other customers given the price difference. If I didn't care so much about night-vision, I'd downgrade to the hardened! C'mon, Amazon, fix it up or I'm about to have a serious case of buyer's remorse... :bomb:

$20 credit for PS3 now!!! They will probably add the XBox 360 at anytime now too.

Just purchased with ECA and my $10 credit from previous game purchase!

Definitely glad Amazon on is on there game with this deal! Got my e-mail confirming that they will be giving me a $15 credit instead of the $10. Awesome.

EDIT: I just saw RoodyPooUS post above and I couldn't believe it. Went onto their site and they are now offering a $20 credit for those that preorder! This is just too awesome now!

Do these $10/15/20 future game credits expire? ie is there a deadline you have to buy the next game by to take advantage?

$20 credit for PS3 now!!!


I'll be damned!

$20 credit, Free release date delivery, 10% ECA and No tax?

This has got to be the best deal I've ever scored on a Preorder.

Whereas the people who preordered at Gamestop, Best Buy of Blockbuster (You'll be surprised how many) Are walking out of the door with the game and $64 less in their pocket (including taxes), I'm getting the game for 34 bucks after all is said and done. That's almost half!

Amazon Totally RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(yet you'll be surprised who many of my PSN buddies despite being aware of all this perks insists in pre-ordering from Gamestop. Like Gamestop's version is any different)

They expire by whatever date it says in the email you get after the game ships. My one for the Beatles: Rock Band that I got at the beginning of the month expires at the end of November. If I to guess this one will expire end of the year.

I used a $5 Uncharted 2 pre-order on CODMW2 and pre-ordered it last week when the promotion was $10 off your next game. Now it is $20?!?!?! Crazy! Looks like Left 4 Dead 2 will be mine $35 and tax.
