Well, my son said the armor code was on the game so I got Halo 4, DLC Armor skin, 1600 MS point card with $25 discount (MS store had no gift cards) from my MS store B&M preorder.
Knowing I'm a cheapass, my son had no clue I would get him Halo 4 on release day. His surprise and excitement, priceless.
I got the same stuff from the Atlanta store. Great deal.
Went to pickup my pre-ordered copy from MS store and it rang up as $59.99, not $54.99. Not gonna whine over $5 but does anyone know why the OP says $54.99?
I also got my Pulse Armor skin and $25 gift card as stated.
They gave $5 off for all preorders in the past and it was confirmed at two stores this year. The knowledgeable employees who confirmed it for me before were not there, but the less knowledgeable employees gave me a 1600 points card instead so I didn't complain. Plus they offered for me to use the gift card on the spot on Halo.
