Come on Amazon, there is no way I am paying more for season 2 than season 1.....

That is a pretty good price! According to Camelegg.com Amazon hasn't dropped Season 1 Blu Ray that cheap (lowest looks to be $38.99). Although I dont think Camelegg tracks gold box prices. Recent ebay sales for Season 1 Blu ray are no where near that cheap either.

You can pick a cheaper shipping @ $2.99. There is also tax. I ended up paying $32.99 with shipping + tax. Good Deal!

anyone sending this to Amazon is likely just wasting their time...

Wasting my time was worth it... please report to Amazon. I already have it on pre-order there. Hope they honor the low price. Do it!

Same. If not, took me like 30 seconds max. I hate FYE and will keep my Amazon order regardless.

It's $57.99 now, which makes me suspect that someone hit the wrong key while they were entering the price. I wonder if these will get cancelled.

Got one. Funny they charge my credit card right away but It can take them up to two months to refund my money from the date of cancellation

FYE can go FYE itself. Pre-ordering through Amazon.

I hate FYE, they always end up cancelling any order I get a half way decent deal on.

That being said I was at Walmart and saw that you can preorder S2 for $34.xx. You pay in full now and get a blu-ray case that contains a few special features and I think S2E1.

It also comes with a voucher that has a code that you use on a website to get the actual season mailed to you when it releases so that you don't have to go back to the store to pick it up. Not sure if it'll arrive on day one but I though the $34.xx was a halfway decent price

Yeah this was something I saw in-store. They had them in the display with other new release blu-rays. It is just a slim blu-ray case with art and advertisements from GOT Season 2.

It looks like you prepay the entire amount and get the bonus disc and voucher which you redeem online to have the actual physical S2 mailed to you.

Sounds like alot of work. Not sure what WM gets out of this exactly other than your money upfront, but I will look into this. Sounds like a good deal.

Just deleted season 2 from the DVR waiting on the Blu release. If Wally's got a deal like that, I'm sure BB & Amazon will have similar or better, I'll wait them out, & by them I mean Amazon.

I'm surprised that FYE won't honor this. It's not like it's a crazy over the top deal that they'd lose tons of money on. It would have been much better to save yourself from pissed off customers and honor the price for people that already purchased it.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

I saw the Wal-Mart deal too.

I was debating whether or not to do it. Anyone done anything like this with Wal-Mart? Is it worth it?

Here's confirmation from Facebook on the Best Buy sigil covers for those interested. Guess we just have to wait for the pre-orders to go up. https://www.facebook...151229201438240

There's a Baratheon cover floating around too, but looks like that may be for Spain only. Fine with me, I'm hoping for a Stannis Baratheon's sigil cover rather than Robert/Joffery's anyway.

I can confirm the $34.99 Wal-Mart deal too. Which makes me really surprised FYE didn't honor the slightly lower price mistake.

Does Best Buy price match pre-order items? I want to pay the walmart price for the Greyjoy version.

I tried calling my local BB and the person I talked to did not seem to understand.

Doubt it since it's a Best Buy exclusive. I've tried PM'ing a BB exclusive before, though not in awhile, and they wouldn't do it.

BB will most likely lower their price to $35 as the release date approaches anyway. I believe season 1 was $35 on release day too.
