Deals officially dead. Amazon now has it listed as $29.98 and no its not a third party. Glad I got my order in last night, just sucks I have to wait 1-3 weeks. ;(

FYI for anyone interested, I got this price matched at Target with Best Buy's current price (19.99) without any issues. Warning: CityTarget's will not honor a price match, only the regular Targets.

That's what backlogs are for.

$20 is a steal for this game.  I got well over 100 hours of play out of my copy.  It's not the greatest game ever but it's incredibly gorgeous and I felt compelled to get the platinum trophy.

 

The hardcover strategy guide is a must as well.  If anybody wants mine, along with the maps and charts I created that to get the platinum, feel free to PM me.

Why is the guide a must? I typically don't like to use guides, so I'm curious why you say that.

Thanks OP for the great deal. I'm in for one plus I had a $10 promo credit so it made it 10.84 for the game.

Thanks! I finally scored it for $22.95 after tax with free shipping and without Prime. It says it will ship 1-3 weeks. I don't mind I'll have some other game to keep me busy by then.

How did you get free shipping without Prime?

My expected delivery date updated to 8/8. Definitely glad I purchased despite the 1-3 weeks listed.

Why is the guide a must? I typically don't like to use guides, so I'm curious why you say that.

 

I wouldn't say the guide is a must.  I bought the guide on release day and I don't think I ever really used it.  I found it a lot more convenient to just look online for where a particular familiar or item was then flip through the guide.  The gold Hurly you get with the guide is also pretty lackluster.  

 

I bought the game at launch and I just now got around to finishing it.  It was a pretty good game but it isn't without flaws.  The game does feel a bit grindy at times when it comes to alchemy but you can easily avoid that and the AI is pretty lackluster.  The familiars have a bit of a Pokemon effect where I wasn't really compelled to try out different familiars after I saw what would be an optimum familiar.  I only changed out 2 of my familiars that I received in the opening areas towards the end of the game.  There are some very good familiars you can get very early in the game.

 

I did like some of the post-game content though and that is well worth exploring some of it.

I dunno, it just deducted the shipping cost for me. I checked my account but I don't know if I might have had a
coupon or not? Odd.

I just tried this in my cart, you are right, standard shipping is free, it wasn't like this when it was $19.99.

Well, for one thing, it's really, really attractive.  But also because of the maps - the game is terrible about location names and map locations, which can make it tough to get around.  I used the guide for that more than anything else.

highly unlikely, the game sold poorly.

I got mine shipped for $19.99 on it's own without prime.

 

That's because I added a pre-order and requested they ship them separately.

 Had I not done the request my account looked like it wouldn't have shipped Ni no kuni until GTA V released.

 

Item Subtotal: $19.99 Shipping & Handling: $0.00 Super Saver Discount: -$0.00 Pre-order Guarantee: -$0.00 Total Before Tax: $19.99 Shipment Total: $19.99 Paid by Gift Certificate: $19.99

And just cancel the preorder afterwards? Now I feel stupid for not thinking of this before.

No I didn't do that. That would be abuse of them. Probably wouldn't be able to keep on doing that before you'd get in trouble. That would work as like a one time thing.

 

I am keeping my pre-order just didn't want to wait till then for ni no kuni to ship. Other wise I would have just got something for $5 bucks as filler.

They ship seperately even if one is a future pre-order & seems to have same shipping date. I have done this several times.

Since Amazon has updated the look, it calculates the difference in amount if you cancel a partial order, so I don't think this would have worked. In the past it would have, but their new system is stupid (smarter?)!

It's $19.99 with free standard shipping now, and was the 1st day of this sale when I checked it out (for me at least, it showed up).

Ordered late Wednesday night and got the game today. I'm happy. The price is good enough that I don't have to feel rushed getting to it. I can put it in my backlog with peace of mind that the value won't keep depreciating.

 

I don't think this game will go cheaper then $20 it has too high of a demand.
