I was curious about how long it takes Best Buy to send out the codes normally. I have a preoder in with them..but am thinking of just returning it and going to Kmart. Can I do that and still get the codes emailed to me? Can I return the preoder and still get them?

Thanks,

Josh

So, ultimately... the best deal (bang for your buck) would be to buy from Newegg?

Guys, how are you using the B-day coupon. Origin emailed me one and it won't work for pre-orders.

Physical, I think so.

Digital, the Amazon deal is a dollar more and comes with dog tags. Also, there are some instructions to change your birthday in origin to get them to send you a 25% off code which brought it to around $48 and some change after tax.

Any idea how they are giving out the SPECACT Code for Best Buy? I just checked my receipt and realized i didnt have them scan my RZ Card <_<, dunno if i need to go and cancel/re-order.

Always hated when BB sends them by email, was so hit-or-miss most of the time for me.

Just a heads up to anyone like me who figured they would over produce the limited editions (like they did with BF:BC2), they already have regular editions shipped as well. My friend was taunting me with a copy when we were in the backroom and it didn't have the limited edition triangle in the corner like the other copies in the cart. Looks like I need to get a hold of this early to make sure I get a LE copy.

Yes theres a video on youtube of an unboxing and its the regular edition so this time the LE might not be over produce like past ea titles.

Amazon just sent me the "game is now available" email but clicking on my game downloads page there still isn't a download link for pre-load or view CD key yet. Although my card has been charged.

No rush, it's not like I'll get to play the game now and not have to wait until the 25th :P

:EDIT: Keys are up now on Amazon

You'll get two keys. One key for the limited edition version of the game and the other for the dog tags.

Going to Midnight launch at my local GS. They are having tacos, a DJ and other goodies (he couldn't give me details). I told him I want the PC version and he said to make sure to pre-order the LE because it will be limited...

$34 and a $20 GC for me. Had like $14 left from Gears 3 and some points from my Amazon Visa. After the $20 GC I am theoretically getting it for $14!

Edited the Gamestop listing as double powerup points is now only for the PC Download version (all double point offers for in-store purchases minus Harry Potter Years 5-7 expired as of close of business on the 16th.)

Also added a 50% trade bonus coupon is available for purchase through Sunday on poweruprewards.com.

Yeah SHG-Gamer said only about 25% of the BF 3 copies going to KMart were the LE and the rest are regular ones.

Looks like EA learned their lesson from BFBC 2, NFS HP, MoH, and the PS3 version of Dead Space 2.

PC version for $41 via Amazon Digital not that long ago and now PS3 version with $20 GC offer. Can't beat that.

I'll have $70 in amazon credit that will go straight to MW3 Hardened Edition.

I <3 Amazon.

I'm sick of Amazon giving a $20 credit for a console game purchase and PC users getting jack squat. I ordered BF3 from Amazon for $49.99 as a download and have it pre-loaded, which is cool, but seriously Amazon, stop giving PC gamers the shaft. We like credits too.

That K-Mart deal is seriously excellent and I'd do it in a heart beat if it also applied for PC (I want to Sony Wireless headset!).

Canceled my Newegg $48 Pre-order for the Amazon Release Day Delivery w/ Dog Tags for $51. I'd rather pay the extra $3 so I know I will have it That Day!
