Sorry to hear about the damaged copies from Amazon. I just got my copy and it came in a box and was shrink-wrapped to a piece of cardboard. I even chose FSSS.  I've been lucky with Amazon cause my P4G, Muramasa & SMT LE's all came in perfect condition. I hope Amazon gets their act together and stops giving CAG's crushed LE's.

 

I got the DLC code from Amazon and it seems not to work yet. Just wondering if anybody else is having trouble redeeming the code.

Surprisingly, my NewEgg order came in a big box instead of the usual bubble mailer and so the game itself is in great condition. Maybe they're finally changing their ways.

Mine was dinged as well, but the contents were fine so I dont care. I still plan to tell them though. This makes me worried for my Xillia CE

 

Doesn't that have like a 9" statue in it?  If they manage to fit that CE into a bubble mailer I'll be pretty impressed.

 

Yeah, that pretty much describes mine to a tee.  It has been a while since I've bugged Amazon CS with any issues so I went ahead and fired off an email about this one.  If nothing else, they need to learn to package this stuff better.  They used to send everything in boxes but I've noticed my last several games have come in bubble mailers.  And even though it was UPS 2-day shipping it was still treated like Parcel Post or something - you'd think they wouldn't have had that much time to beat it up, but they found a way.

 

Let me know how that goes and what they say so I can decide how much I care to press the issue.

I can confirm, I had registered FE before the offer was announced(3 days, go figure) and YES, I STILL got the $30.

 

So if you already have FE code redeemed, no worries

there were never any worries. the page for the promo clearly states that it works with people who registered fire emblem before.

Amazon smashed mine pretty nicely, but I got it at least.

Anyone else find it funny that Amazon offers a costume based off their boxes, but refused to ship said games in those boxes?

Has anyone succcesfully redeemed this in the WiiU eShop? When I was going through the process to get the $30 code, I remember seeing a statement saying this code (actually it said "this game") can only be redeemed on a 3DS, that it wouldn't work on a WiiU eShop.

Is this true?

Capture the spirit of the Amazon package with its cardboard color, signature smile logo, and bar code is this imaginative upper body armor for the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado’s Samurai.

It's not a smile. It's A to Z. You know, something like they offer everything.

Mine arrived with a small dent on the top. I was able to push the dent out so that it's only noticable when looking from above. About the same as my Ni No Kuni strategy guide and Hyrule Historia--minor dings that I'm not exactly happy about, but I'm a collector who isn't uptight enough to go through a several-day customer service process to throw the dice on what might be a more damaged version in the end anyhow.

Now to see if we'll get a nice 3DS XL before the end of the year, or just cave in and get the standard blue one . . .

That's usually my attitude. I've gave Amazon free pass when my Adventure Time Season 2 arrived with damage to the slip case. I gave them another shot with the bent on AT:Playing with Fire. Project X Zone arrived with dents on top...Fine, I'm lucky to get the LE version.

 

Then MGS:Legacy Collection arrived and had dents on all side. The corner of the artbook got bent that it's really visible. Spoke with CS, and got only a $4.99 credit back. Whatever...not worth the hassle of shipping back to exchange.

 

Today, SMT IV arrive. The back of the case has a huge Fuck ing tear. Multiple dents all over that can't be smooth or bent out. A scratch running on the front of the case. Needless to say, my patient with Amazon is wearing quite thin over their persistance in using these bubble mailers. I'm returning SMT to Amazon and picking up a copy at Best Buy. I'll see if my BB copy is okay, if the guide is damage, I'll swap and sending the damage copy back to Amazon in their shitastic bubble mailer.

 

I've had Bluray sent back for exchange before too. The quality of their packaging has slipped since late last year.

Don't get too comfortable. Amazon has been back and forth a bit with bubble mailers for me (NYC) and then bam, bubble mailer almost always. The only exception are items that are too big for bubble mailer.

Nope, you also need to order the $30 credit as a free reward in your to-do list on the website.  Once you order it you should see the code for the credit on the confirmation page and your email.

Also received my copy from amazon in a bubble mailer today, but to my surprise it was in perfect condition :bouncy: . Usually I get all my things shipped in boxes no mater how small the item is this was a first but it turned out ok.

I haven't seen the UPS guy do that but I know the FedEx guy here does that and oh how it makes my blood boil.  UPS here at least still actually comes onto the porch and knocks on the door for things that don't require a signature but FedEx doesn't even do that so he just tosses stuff and runs back to the truck to get done faster.  Not sure about Prestige since they deliver at inconsistent times and I've never actually seen them deliver.  Makes me all the more unhappy that in this area they've all but abandoned UPS unless your two day order gets shipped at a weird time where to make the delivery window it basically becomes next day shipping.

So has it ben confirmed it is only a 3DS eShop credit or does it work on the Wii U?  I'm not sure where I'd use it - maybe for the new street pass games even though I know nothing about them.

if you get a good amount of street passes a day, it's a great buy! if not then not worth it
