hey guys is it for sure that we get $15 in points? I know it says that when we click the link that the OP posted, but when you actually goto the item page to add it to your cart, it doesn't have any info about the points at all..even at checkout..all it says is you will earn 600 points on this order? .. which i think is 60 cents. Anyone have any idea? Thanks.. Also it sucks that most of the games are for xbox what about remember me on ps3??.. haha

Also, does anyone know if you can still use SWYR points to purchase PSN cards? I thinkkk I read somewhere that they change it recently within the last 2 months where you couldn't use points to purchase PSN cards anymore.. which would suck.. Thanks for your help!

For folks wondering: I ordered DKR 3DS on May 11th using a $10 off $30 birthday coupon; I just received a shipping confirmation, and my 15k points have posted as well even though there was no indication of this when I ordered.

Forgot about this thread. OP should put Kmart in the thread title as it's only Kmart and not Sears.

The site/system is weird and bad. Some guy was able to order May20 another guy ordered earlier but got canceled?

How are people getting free shipping? I placed preordered FFXIV with Soul Hackers a month ago to get free shipping. Just notice there's no obvious way to cancel FF.

Got my points as well. Now if only I knew if I could get another $15 for another game pre-order... Their wording is pretty poor. Also, is a price adjustment possible? I noticed that DK is $5 off next week. Just curious.

There's a free 3 month trial for 'Shop Your Way Max' which will allow you to get free shipping, or 99¢ 2-day (I think) shipping.

DKCR was waiting for me when I got home today. I will go to Kmart on Sunday for $5 back based on their ad and price adjustment policy:

Price adjustments will be given on prior Kmart purchases within 7 days of purchase. You must bring in your original sales receipt to receive the adjustment. Price adjustments will not be given on holiday/seasonal merchandise or merchandise that is on clearance.

price adjustments are processed as a return, rebuy, and in my experience this makes you lose whatever bonus points the item triggered in the original purchase.

Do you think I would still get the points if I buy it now?

I just chatted with them and they changed the price to $29.99 online. I didn't ask about the $15, but did take a screen cap of it on the preorder page.

Was the chat helpful? Every time I've chatted with "someone" at kmart.com, I swear it's a robot.

I thought so. Didn't take very long. Changed the price without question. Offered to place the order for me but I figured I could do it quicker (plus wanted the 5% U-promise cashback)

Hey if you get the $15 points, let us know.

Would they show up when marked as shipped?

Just off the online chat with Kmart. They issue $0.35 refund (tax) to me immediately. $5 refund will be issued in 3-5 business days.

At the time of the adjustment, all of my 15,000 points still showed in my account. But in this morning, all of them were gone. Oh well - -"

Ok, I bought it yesterday for $29.99 online, it shipped this morning, and I did have the $15 worth of points in my account. Should still be good today as well as long as it is shown here (http://www.kmart.com...120000000234646). An even better deal if you got any of the free points they gave out this week for tornado relief.

Interesting. Might give this a try now if it would only be $30 and I get the $15 coupon. Could just sell it to GS as part of the $35 promo, use the CN code, and then grab Luigi's Mansion for $20, which is a pretty good price there. Would be $50 OoP though, not sure if the GS credit/tax free PS4 is worth it. I guess it kind of is. If the PS4 is $500 I would be looking at around $35 in tax which technically does cancel out DKR.

Kmart's such a bipolar retailer.

-Runs a major sales campaign years ago to get people into their stores to buy games, offering $10-20 coupon codes for new-game purchases
-Fires all employees apart of the campaign after a couple months and does away with the program entirely
-Restarts said program after all of their customers have gone back to far-more coordinated retailers offering much better prices/deals

Fucking Kmart.

Yep, just put in an order for DKCR today, it already shipped and I got the points.

Too bad they don't sell New Leaf for some reason.

So i placed an order and got the 15,000 in points within a couple hours. So it is live as off a couple hours ago.

The points are good until June 30, 2014 for me.

Dude, the guy on top of this page said any price adjustments you do will take away the points so in the future, keep that in mind.

Anyone got the points using store pick-up from online or think that would work because I would prefer to go that route instead of waiting for it to ship?

Ordered DKCR for in-store pickup. I will post after checking in a couple of hours if the $15 in SWYR points shows up or not. If not, I will be heading over to KM to pick up & return the game in one swoop, grab an ad & head over to BB for a price match so I can grab the Lost Levels DL instead...
