"Pre-order by 6PM on 9/15 and get it the day it's released. You'll also get 1600 Xbox Live points free"

 

http://www.microsoft...Preorder_082613

 

Code will be emailed within 10 days of shipment.

 

Apologies if this is a duplicate of the same deal on here...  didn't see it anywhere.

 

EDIT: Use code freeshipesc2012-over and select next day shipping for FREE OVERNIGHT SHIPPING.

I came here to make sure this deal was posted, and didn't see it anywhere.

 

As for the free shipping code, last year, when they had this same deal for preorders, I ordered five games from them, and all five arrived on launch day, no additional cost.  Not sure if it's the same this year, but I'm running with it.

 

Cancelled with BB ($10 in Reward Points) and went with this deal instead.  Know what this means?  Killer Instinct on Xbox One launch day is paid for!

Is this still working? I don't see any confirmation of the Microsoft points in my cart when I go to order. I tried like hell but couldn't find the original deal thread for this deal. All I could find was this "repost". Sorry.

We are in the same boat. The points item and credit didn't appear in my cart and order receipt like it did when I preorderd Bioshock Infinite. Not sure if I'll receive it or if I'll have to call and complain after 10 days. Either way, I'm saving print outs of pages and receipts just in case...

 

Also, the deal is limited to only three preorders. That doesn't apply to me but thought I would mention it.

This is still working, at least for me.  I plugged in the promo code, too, for the free shipping.  On the receipt screen upon placing the order, it gave the instructions for redeeming the code for the free MS points.  So as others have said, I saved the receipt for proof, in case I don't get the code within 10 days as they specify.

 

I don't know about others but I couldn't find this promo on the site without going to the link from the first post.  So, thank you very much to the OP for posting this.  

 

*edit -- I'm an idiot.  Just found the promo on my own, but still, a thank you to the OP.

Thanks to the OP, I canceled my order and utilized the free next day shipping promo code. That was my only complaint from when I preordered BioShock Infinite was delivery time being multiple days after the release date. Hopefully that should help speed things up.

 

And my receipts and order confirmation screens mention the free 1600 points in sidebar text, so hopefully I'm good there.

 

Thanks again.

I saw somewhere on this site that BB was guaranteeing a TIV of $45 for GTAV.  I can't find that anywhere on BB's website.  Does anyone know if they're still doing that and what the link to that offer is?  Thanks.

Just preordered using the code. Thanks OP. quick question since its next day shipping does that mean it'll come Wednesday. Hope there's a chance that they ship it early.

Bummer on the code being dead.  Was going to go this route.

The free overnight shipping code worked for me when I reordered it yesterday 1:30PM EST. Glad I ordered when I did!

Mine does to. Technically it is back ordered until they receive their shipment. My order also has a Preorder Ship date of 9/17/2013, so I'm not too worried... yet. Even if it is delayed a little, the free 1600MSP point code is enough for me to hold onto the order.

DAMMIT! The code was working when I tried it yesterday, but I had to wait until I had some money today. Now the damn code doesn't work! :evil:

What the hell is it with Microsoft Store not wanting to sell Limited Editions of even their OWN games, let alone GTA V?  Can't find Forza 5 Limited on there either!

Meh. Went ahead and ordered it without the shipping code.

Same.  Better than the regular retail price.

Don't expect to get it fast.  MS store shipping is crazy long.
