Guessing its a case by case thing. I received a code the other day hours before my order shipped and I even debated canceling. Sadly, I wanted the game and by then the $10 credit bonus was over so seemed pointless.

I'm in the same boat as you though. Pre-ordered a good handful of games with 25OFF and not sure if I'll have any codes coming but I'll drop them a line tomorrow and see what the deal is. What games did you pre-order by chance so maybe we can connect up some dots on why they sent you only 3?


I preordered the following games:

Alan Wake Limited edition
Crackdown 2
Prince of Persia
Singularity
Red Dead Redemption

Good luck with your email. Hopefully you will get some codes..

I would rather email them after the orders ships to ask for the $10 coupon for my alan wake CE.

at this point, they can tell me to cancel the order and reorder now to get the $10 coupon but I will lose the 25off.

This is weird halo reach legendary said $5 almost for extra handling with a coupon that did not work at the end. I was just messing around seeing if they goofed and allowed that to be used. Anyways i redid the order with F2D and then it doubled the handling fee with the other coupon that did not work. I am like uhhhh and decided to say forget this. I never did get my previous credit from a preorder deal..

$149.99 Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Handling: $14.98 Posted Image Posted Image Includes Special Handling Fee Posted Image Posted Image F2D - Free 2-Day Shipping on all pre-order titles. May not be combined with other offers. Not valid on consoles. Expires 5/31/2010 11:59PM
- $9.99 Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Estimated Tax: $13.56 Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Order Total: $168.54

I think newegg is the best way to go since i pay 1-2 bucks more without tax on them. The $20 credit would of made this $148.54 anyways so $150 total shipped on newegg is way better for my tastes. This is why i always do not buy from GS then the random goofs they do does not help.

I pre-ordered when it came out on gamestop, I did the free shipping option, eventhough it would take like a week to ship. But I never saw any special fee.

Well 3 of those are being released next Tuesday so would explain the number of codes they sent. I have pre-ordered Alan Wake and Red Dead and haven't been charged so I'm curious if maybe your order with those pre-orders have been locked or anything. If not you could make out with some free codes but then again getting those games for ~$48 a pop after tax is a steal to begin with.

I e-mailed them today and will update with my findings tomorrow.

I got an email back from them simply stating the codes would be sent after the games are shipped.

Eh whatever. Joke's on them since I took full advantage of 10AUTO and 25OFF stacking plenty of times.

That is weird then. The handling fee of $15 was a slap in the face when i was going to order it. It is odd it doubled or tripled when i added the new code F2D.

I emailed them about my Alan Wake LE and they sent me a complimentary $10 off code. Hopefully they have some automated system thta sends me another when the game ships. I pre ordered way back with the $20 off $80 promo.

If so, can you possibly post what it said.

Thanks

Yes. Ask them if they will price match the $20 gift card that Walmart and Amazon are offering for RDR. Be specific.

I sent them an email and they sent me a code for $20 off for any instock title.

Does this mean I will still get the $10 off code when game ships

Interestingly enough, when asking for the PM, they gave it to me . . . instantly. As in, I now have a $10 code and I haven't had to pay anything yet. And I'm getting another when it actually ships.

$45 - $20 + Free overnight shipping = $25 and free overnight shipping = WIN

Nice! Did you guys just email help@gamestop.com ?

I ordered RDR last night, but it's still not showing up in my order history either.

That's what I'd like to know too, since then I'd use the $20 code to get Bad Company 2 for $30-ish if they gave me it immediately.

I was gonna press my luck and bs them and say that Amazon or WM were offering release day shipping too, but I didn't wanna push it.:lol:

They gave me the code immediately. Keep asking them until they budge.

If I preorder RDR and Mario Galaxy 2 using the 25% off code, will they charge for the complete order when RDR ships on may 18th, or just the RDR part of the order?

thanks

I sent them this:

Are you going to be price matching Amazon or Walmart of $20 on their game credit for pre ordering Red Dead Redemption?

from my email address I use with GS

Got a $20 code, took an hour maybe. Thanks for posting

Crap. I got told that they 'don't match any competitors'.:bomb: Maybe I'll call their customer service line just prior to their 8pm closing time and see if I can get a rep who is in a hurry to get home to match the $20 card from Amazon/WalMart.:lol:;)

So if you ask them to price match they will give you a $20 code right now? sorry if I didn't understand correctly.
