Title says it all, I think that might be a price error. I don't know why they wouldn't be releasing the game at $60.. but who knows. $44.99 is definitely a good deal IMO.

Also Wonderful 101 is on sale for $51.99. It's a great game if you're.. wondering.

Yea, MSRP is $49.99. NewEgg is knocking $5 off lots of preorders lately.

 

Too bad they charge me tax and ship slowly (compared to my Amazon Prime). That said, when Amazon tax kicks in for me, it's over to NewEgg. :(

 

<rant>Taxed since there's a shipping facility in my state, but then my stuff always ships slowly from California. Eragh!</rant>

The title sounds like a 7/11 promotion...

Everything I've ever preordered from them has come within 3 days of them shipping it. I've never had a problem. I've only ordered 3 or 4 things though.

since nintendo games usually release on a sunday, newegg ships out the game on saturdays for me usually and ill receive the game by monday or tuesday. 

 

but i live pretty close to a newegg warehouse so theres that

Absolutely, I've probably ordered around 15-20 games from them. Because Amazon started charging tax where I live and newegg doesn't, not to mention they're cheaper anyways Newegg replaced Amazon for me well over a year ago.

Thanks OP! Anyone know if there's a similar discount to use toward Super Mario 3D World?

NP. Not on Newegg right now, but there's a good chance it will show up.. they usually do. Unless it's been there already. I'll be sure to post it if it comes up. That is, if someone else doesn't post it first. ;)

I stopped preordering from Newegg when they wouldn't do $10-12 off for preordering anymore.

I've had issues in the past with two items. Game and Wario came in about two weeks after release and my Animal Crossing LE 3DSXL was put on backorder. I eventually cancelled and picked it up from TRU.

I had originally ordered this for $52.99 after a $7 promo code a couple months back, so I contacted Newegg to see if they'd match the new MSRP and still honor the promo code.  Ha, nope.  Preorder cancelled.

All my Newegg pre-orders that I had up till the release of The Last of Us this past spring would come in on the Thursday of release week. That was when they had offered $15 off sometime last year.

 

I hadn't pre-ordered any recent game until Dishonored: GOTY and didn't receive it till 8 days after release, after only receiving a measly $5 discount. From this point on, I won't be pre-ordering through Newegg anymore.
