I would just cancel my KZ3 preorder and place another order but I went through Home to get the Home Avatar freebie. Hrm...


As has been said millions of times in this thread you will get the $20 promo credit even if you ordered before it was added and even if you already have an existing preorder bonus for the game (see: Black Ops and Hot Pursuit for examples). If because you were holding your breath and had your eyes crossed when you ordered and don't get the $20 credit call or email Amazon and they will apply the credit.

Yeah, I've read that. I've also experienced Amazon being a PITA about preorder bonuses so in my experience, it's hit-and-miss. Amazon is pretty decent but their CS is not 100%.
In the bonus description, it says nothing about the $20 applying to previous preorders. That's my main concern.

EDIT: I called CS just to see what they'd say. I was told I'd get the $20 promo. If I have any issues at least there will be a record that I called on the 18th about the promo. I'd recommend for others to call, just to be safe.

Well last time I cancelled an order that had release date delivery I wasn't able to get it back. So this time I called amazon and they manually adjusted the price of my games down to 39.95 and 37.99 respectively. Gotta love amazon!

THIS IS TOTALLY YMMV --- I preordered the Helghast edition yesterday before the $20 credit was posted. This morning I sent Amazon customer service an email (through "My Orders" in the account section) asking if the $20 credit was coming to the Helghast edition and saying I was going to cancel my order and preorder the non-limited edition if they weren't. A couple of hours later I got an email saying they weren't going to offer it but $20 had been taken off my order. Again - totally YMMV but I wanted to share this with my fellow CAGers for anyone else in the same boat.

I hated the Bulletstorm demo so someone donate me their GOW3 beta code so it doesn't cost me $40. Thanks!

Unfortunately the beta will require the BS disc.

Had a feeling Amazon would post this type of credit and exclude the Helghast Edition I have on pre-order. I expected it, so no regrets sticking with the Helghast one.

Bulletstorm reminds me of Serious Sam (one of my favorite FPS games of all time) in its style and humor; very psyched about this new game!

Merged the Killzone & Bulletstorm threads to combine the hot $20 credit action for the front page.


Was wondering how I missed so many pages!

And a reminder again, if you preorder Killzone 3 from Amazon via the kiosk in the Central Plaza in Home on the PS3 you can get all the bonus CheapyD listed plus a exclusive jetpack to wear in Home. They will send you a code to DL it when the game ships I believe.

Also they have mini game to earn 3 more unlock points there too so 6 total points thanks to Amazon and Home.

That goes against everything I have seen about how Amazon operates . . . they always give you the promo credit even if you order before such a credit is offered. WTF?

EDIT: Re-read the pre-order price guarantee, and it only states that if the price on the item goes down between the time of your preorder and shipping, you get the lowest price. Doesn't say you get any promo credit if that is offered after your original pre-order.

Was on the fence about Bulletstorm and definitely passing on buying Killzone 3, but now they are both pre-ordered, thanx amazon! I <3 U! Plus release day delivery cause I'm prime!

Wasn't planning on KZ3 but that $20 general credit was too tempting. I had $20 livingsocial credit and $10 MvC3 vg credit, so KZ3 for $26 + $20 future credit sounds good to me.

Still passing on Bulletstorm. Really wanted to like this game but the camera shakiness is too much. KZ3 is a bit shaky but not nearly as bad as Bulletstorm.

Thanks, I ended up talking my way to getting both for 80$. Great deal if you ask me, I loved Killzone and I love Bulletstorm.

I've already got a $15 Amazon credit from something, so it came out to $42.99. With the maps and $20 credit, it was a definite buy. Good shit Amazon.

Are you talking about bulletstorm? As KZ3 presently has a 85 on MC with 39 reviews.

I'm hesitant to pick Killzone 3 up, even at the price of essentially $37.99, because the demo still had laggy, sluggish controls. Albeit improved over KZ2, but still too sluggish compared to most other shooters I've played.

Man I was going to wait for Bulletstorm but it seems it would be stupid not to pick it up at launch now. I think I'll go and find my The Club copy on my shelf today as I'm in the mood for some arcadey shooting!
