Technically this is true but it only ends up being a couple dollars difference once tax is figured in plus you don't get that $20 bonus until a month after you pickup the game. I'll take the money off the top even if I might have to wait a day or two to receive the order.


I'm in CA, so newegg would charge me tax too. If you are not in CA however, and your tax rate is M, as long as M<13.33% the BBY deal is better. Of course unless you have little use for BBY GCs, which would be absurd.

why do people go in threads and say ''I won't even be able to play this because of my backlog'' and then leave?


1. I didn't say I wouldn't be able to play this game because of my backlog. I said it's not uncommon for people on this site to wait for real deals on games because they don't need to have them RIGHT NOW.

2. I didn't "leave".


Again, lrn2literacy.

Thanks OP, I just pre-ordered the 360 version.

I only got a Newegg account this month to get Persona 4 Arena, but their free 3-day shipping got the game to me only one day after release. So at this rate I might not buy a game from Amazon again for a long time. They just aren't competing.

That's an annoying little phrase there. I don't even know if it qualifies as a phrase, actually.

Yes, as I said, the BB deal is TECHNICALLY better especially for you since Newegg hits you with tax. For me, the Newegg deal is better since I save the money right away without having to make a second purchase, don't have to use gas to drive to BB or wait for their slower shipping and save the tax.

Agreed. Newegg is pretty much dead to me because they charge tax for me as well. But I thought the RE6 preorder at BBY gives you extra content? Or am I remembering things wrong?

EDIT: I checked, it's the Rail Yard map.

EDIT2: I would preorder from Capcom store if they had this price in a heartbeat for the Umbrella umbrella.

$65 up front at Bestbuy minus $20 = $45 Sure you won't get the $20 for nearly a month, but that is $20 to go towards the next game I have pre-ordered. New-egg is $47.99 unless you have to pay tax. So let's say you didn't have to pay tax, it's $3 more plus the wait to get it in the mail which no one can ever foresee shipping issues. Like I said initially, it's a deal if you don't care about the Bestbuy deal or want to wait on shipping.

Please just leave then if this isn't a "real" deal for you.
