Not actually. I believe the Dawn of War games are GFWL + Steam. Dirt 3 also had a steam key with certain video card purchases.

Most of the time it is one or the other though


I see. So it's a case by case basis. I'll keep that in mind when I look to buy a PC game soon to test my new build I just finished a few days ago. I'm thinking about waiting for Rage to give it a good test though my StarCraft II would probably suffice.

Yeah there are some games that are both... GFWL's advantage obviously being you get XBL achievements.

Anyone buy this earlier and try to get a credit back with the price dropped?

I bought the PC version Tuesday and it shipped today (Wednesdy) then the price dropped from $39.99 which i paid to $29.99

I contacted Amazon and they said this:

Are they getting more strict with giving credits out? My order literally shipped 6 hours ago

If I was you I'd contact another CSR.

I don't want to get my account blacklisted for complaining too much. I usually only contact them in situations like this if I haven't received my order yet... but the link that they posted about price guarantees make me feel like they are taking a strong stance about not doing retroactive price adjustments.

I could threaten to refuse shipment and repurchase but I'd hate to do that

You're not going to get a complainer flag, lol i doubt thier CRM tool has that checkbox, just contact another rep and explain u dont want to retun/buy again, theyll hook you up.

Amazon CSR rule: If at first you dont succeed, try atleast one more time.

First time I contacted them through chat, I got the same runaround. This was back on July 29th, as I had ordered it on July 28th for $39.99, and on July 29th it was a lightning deal for $29.99. I went through chat, and was told the same thing. There is no post-order price match for any items ordered, you receive the cheapest price when your item ships, and aren't eligible for any refunds even if it changes mere minutes after your item ships.

Right after that, I left the chat and sent an email instead, and never heard back from them...I guess they may have merged it into the chat log maybe and thought that it was a solved issue since I sent it around the same time. I'd decided just to drop it after that...

Until today when it showed as $29.99 without being a lightning deal. So again I contacted them through email, and received a rather quick response, and though I got the same message, I did receive the refund.

The message was as follows:

Spoiler


Usually with Amazon CSR's it varies greatly with each different CSR, and eventually you'll get one that agree's with you. Also, in my message I didn't really "threaten" to refuse the package and order a new one, I just mentioned it. Said something along the lines of, "I understand if you are unable to give out a refund, so would my best choice be to refuse shipment, and re-order at the current price?" But that's all I said about it. I don't really see it as a threat anyway, because I have been specifically told twice in the past to do just that by CSR's when the price is lowered on an item that I purchased a day or two after it ships.

Sorry for ranting BTW, and going off topic, just trying to help.

thanks for the thread. I had been beating myself up about not picking this up when I had a chance for around the same price last year. I have wanted the lunchbox and bobblehead for some time.

Thanks OP. Was a gold box deal a week or so ago, then price jumped to $59.99. Glad to see it's back at $29.99. In for one. The bobblehead and lunch box alone are worth $30 IMO.

It's been $30 for months at Gamestop. I think the Amazon lightning deal for $39.99 last week was the lowest it's been there.

Speaking on CE games... any chance of Tron dropping to $30? It's been at $40 for weeks.

This game is a freaking classic! $30 is a great deal for what you get, the art book, the bobble head and the lunchbox are killer. Couldn't pass it up, thanks you tons OP!

Had to bite on this. I played Fallout and didn't really like it the first time, but I'll give it another go. Plus the extras look cool so... $30 it is...

No you are absolutely fine :)

I was just seeing if they lifted the one per accout ban. I wanted a second one for PC but I think I'll just order it on my brother's Amazon account
