Was this the $0.35 deal or did you pay the $5? I received all of my promo codes for VUDU via email and the emails indicated that they would email me the skin codes on 11/6/12. Now I'm wondering about that deal...


A little bit of both...

I believe it was considered the ".35 cent deal" but I still paid 5$. It includes a VUDU 4.99 credit and the exclusive Wal-Mart armor.

The deal I clicked on was on Wal-Mart's website where they send you a prepaid card.

NewEgg is offering $12 off pre-order for EMCJNHE52.

Not sure if I want to do this or the MS one. I will need two map packs but those won't even start coming out until December.

If you're a Gamestop Powerup Rewards Member, you'll be getting 3 exclusive Halo 4 emblems with the preorder as well.

I hate how there are now exclusive emblems and such in Halo 4. Why could it not be like past halos where you can make your own emblem, so nothing is "exclusive". Armor should be exclusive, not emblems.

Whatever happened the good ole days of actuallly unlocking all the content in games rather than have these "exclusives" based on where you preorder?

Just checked and this code does still appear to be working so I'm updating the first post.

Anybody else get one?

So anyone care to explain the "Pre-order Now to Get All 7 Halo 4 Exclusives, Only at GameStop" email from GameStop from a couple of days ago? Since when did they have more bonuses, and 7 at that, than whats listed in the OP?

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Haha yeah. I only have three reasons to buy it there: I have $57 store credit to get rid of, no tax and I have Prime until January so my bro can have it day one. If they keep going the way they're going I won't buy any games from them next year. Why are they so desperate not to give a general credit?

The Newegg deal has been dead for a while, hasn't it? I'm looking to preorder a copy. Where will I get the most bang for my buck?

Best deal is Microsoft Store, their $25 gift card with preorder was still on last I checked. Best Buy has $20 rz certificate if you're a GCU member (costs $15 to join though). Newegg may run a deal again though: on release day, newegg had AC3 for $48 up to November 5, I reordered it at that price

They'll start collecting tax here in NJ at the end of July, possibly earlier but not yet. They'll be taxed pretty much everywhere soon enough.

When did you pre-order? Because those lithograph posters were available months ago and I'm sure by now are gone.

I was also wondering this. I guess as long as Frys sells it at that price on release day and if Frys is even one of the places Best Buy matches. I have about $50 in Best Buy credit to use.

Have a shit ton of Amazon credit...looks like I'll be getting it from newegg in a few days.

Back when they also offered 99 cent release day delivery... sigh.

Really hoping Newegg ships early. After seeing the reviews I'm gonna be miserable on Tuesday if I don't have my copy yet :booty:

I have been wondering the same thing. I feel like there would be much more promotion behind this if they really had EVERY preorder dlc from Amazon, BBY, Walmart and MS Store.

The link just brings you to the bogus "Vote" thing. If anyone as more info I would love to hear it!

*Thinking about it, it says SEVEN. There is the Gamestop Forest Armor, the Arctic Battle Rifle Skin, Premium Theme and then the current voting which looks like it will be a Ghost Avatar Prop. That means 4 things right there. Then it notes something of the three emblems only for PUR members.

So that means the above four plus the three emblems. AKA poor advertising/ wording on GS's end.

If I order from MS Store, will I get delivery on release day? Anyone know?

I think I got NBA2k13 the day after release, which is perfectly timely enough for me given the deal. I would only have a handful of hours to play Halo 4 on release day anyways.

Can anyone confirm the Microsoft B&M stores have this for $54.99 with $25 gaming credit?

EDIT: I called the Santa Clara store and confirmed. Plus they have a midnight launch. Sweet.

So if I pre order at the $5 pre sale deposit at walmart, I get the $5 vudu and DLC armor without having to actually pay for the game, is this correct?

I went with the Microsoft store. At least I can just use the $25 for some XBOX LIVE SPACEBUX ™.
