it's a shame that they charge taxes to CA residents

It's a shame anyone charges tax to CA residents. =)

'course we're supposed to pay tax anyway for 'Fair Use', but aside from business expenses, who the heck is gonna do that?

very nice find, if it wasn't for amazon giving credits on a lot of preorders id probably take advantage, but since I have to pay tax on newegg and I dont know what the future amazon credits are going to be its hard to make a purchase decision on a preorder.

maybe thats just me idk. Im sure for others (who dont have to pay tax) tho this is going to be a killer deal.

tax is 9.75% where I live, its no joke.

Well I had a 10 dollar gift card for a MIR screw up on newegg so I used that, and this code, to preorder Ar Tonelico on PS3. Really 40 dollars shipped is cheap as im going to find it for awhile and good luck ever finding it on sale...

not sure what you mean exactly by that comment, but no I live in california... tax rates vary by county. I imagine its probably ranging from 8%~10% throughout california, each county decides its own sales tax on top of the california tax.

I live in one of the areas with the higher rate of tax... so businesses in california have to have a system in place to charge you the correct tax rate based on county you reside in for online purchases.

its actually pretty idiotic and I wouldn't have a problem paying it, if it was actually put to a good cause. Politicians shovel money into the fire at an alarming rate and have very little to show for it. TBH a lot of California is pretty much a terrible place to live. I live in one of the nicer areas and its still not that great.

I think you get $10 in rewards points AND Yakuza 3 for free when you buy Yakuza 4 @ KMart.

No, I didn't. That sucks. Well as long as it's remastered textures and all and not just res'd up I'll be happy. Maybe they'll take the time to add move support as well.

Sigh. I knew the Kmarts in my area all shut down so I decided to check the closest... ~200 miles away. *sigh* Come on high speed bullet train!

Does newegg charge when it ships or does it charge when you order the item? I am extremely tempted to pre order the new deus ex from them since it's a confirmed $10 off.

Think I might get mlb 11. K-mart is offering $15 in credit but tax and transportation negate that

They charge when the item ships.

Haven't figured out what ima use the credit for. Hopefully I'll think of something before the deal ends.

Thinking of doing Ar Tonelico 3 and Yakuza 4 through this. Just wonder how well they will ship Ar Tonelico 3 and if it will be the limited edition one. Don't want that to come all banged up.

Nice. MLB 11 The Show for $50? I'll bite. Hopefully this will put pressure on Amazon to up the ante.

Just so you know, it's one code per account.

Ima use the $10 credit for the Splinter Cell Collection. Always been interested to playing the old Splinter Cells. Coming June, I finally can and in HD w/ trophies.


This won't work on the splinter cell collection as that's $39.99 and this is for games $59.99 and up

OK then just Ar Tonelico. Never ordered anything that size from them, regular games just came in a bubble mailer, and dont want the box to be crushed :p

Something tells me that "end of the year" for Team Ico Collection is just a new placeholder date, as I received emails from Amazon telling me that both that and Sorcery (Move title from Sony's E3 '10 conference) were pushed back to December 31 2011. Both were originally placeholdered for March and I guess it became clear to Amazon that neither was going to make it on time. So there's still hope it'll come sooner :bouncy:

On topic: nice deal, I have a couple of full-retail titles preordered at Amazon that I doubt are going to get $10/$20/etc. credits so this should save me a little money.
