I'm happy. Amazon honored the $279 plus tax Xbox One without Kinect. I have Dragon Age,  Master Chief collection coming this fall along with Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS.

If you took advantage of the pricing error on games like Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, etc. then the Amazon deal comes off pretty good. All in all it was a decent promotion, but man they were making mistakes left right and center. I bet they are still kicking themselves over that >$300 Xbone

Most of the games announced like Uncharted 4 and co, usually drop in price over time. My priority was for games from companies like Nintendo, where they rarely go down and the only option is to wait for retailers to drop them. Niche games too, as those become hard to find physically over time.

A lot of the Nintendo games announced were eShop or low-priced games like Mario Maker, that Toad game, or Splatoon. I pre-ordered Yoshi's Whooly World for $50, got Smash Bros for $45 at BB and that's it... was going to try Hyrule Warriors but I feel like that will drop in price by the time I can get to it.

Meant games like Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney and co that are 3DS exclusives. Those were priced at $44.99.

Wow, nagging Amazon worked! That last order I tossed down with the Persona Q LE in it got corrected, and I'm getting it for $56 :D

Just checked, and I still haven't gotten a response since Friday. It's funny, because they said this in their last e-mail:
 
"We're real people who care about your experience and we're happy to help you in any way we can."

 

lol.

The best we can hope for is when they lose 20k-100k in purchases because their sale was such a joke, that they actually learn from it.

I can't see that happening. I got random discounts on everything I ordered through them, it just took varying amounts of customer service nagging. When I ordered several things I fully expected not to get discounted.

 

Certainly not everybody got that, but they shouldn't have expected broken prices. Also Amazon is great at actually fulfilling the broken prices they *did* hand out. So I can't see this being some sort of PR nightmare.

Same here... Except it worked out to Akiba's Trip being 15$ and Persona Q full price.

 

I'm trying to do the math on my side and I still can't quite figure it out. My own 15% off numbers are always a bit bigger than the corrected order. Oh well!

You're even lucky to get Akiba's Trip or the CE for Persona Q at a lower price to begin with. They didn't even have them marked with the up to 30% off like the rest of their games that were listed. Not to mention CEs usually never qualify for these deals.

hmm hyperdimension neptunia PP shipped... but there's something odd about how they calculate how much I pay.. won't know if they're fing up again until all three items are shipped though.
 

Item(s)

Subtotal: CDN$ 44.99

Shipping & Handling: CDN$ 0.00

*Promotion Applied: -CDN$ 8.09  

----- Total before tax: CDN$ 36.90

Estimated GST/HST: CDN$ 1.85

Estimated PST/RST/QST: CDN$ 2.58  

----- Total for this Shipment: CDN$ 41.33   -----

in no way is this 30% off... so unless they adjust the prices on the other games once all three items ship, I say they're screwing up again.

Did you guy this with 2 other games in the same order??? that's the only way you'd get the 30% off

 

It's also UP TO 30% off so the $8.09 is the 15% off you get at checkout ,but from the looks of it that game didn't get the 15%  off most games got prior to the checkout process so it's the proper discount

Well the two other games in the ordered are priced like this:

Items OrderedPrice1 of: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair - PlayStation Vita
Sold by: Amazon.com.ca, Inc.

Condition: New

CDN$ 33.99
1 of: Fairy Fencer F - PlayStation 3
Sold by: Amazon.com.ca, Inc.

Condition: New

CDN$ 42.49



so the 15% off the entire purchases might apply after all three games have shipped.. or not... it's hard to say.

That slipped my mind... promotion is applied to the whole order, after all, so would they just wait for the last item to ship? and what if the discount is larger than the price of the last item? would they just refund the difference to your credit card?

#79 Socpens

No, the discount is applied to each item. I asked a service representative and one of my orders looks like this:

 

Last of Us PS4: $59.49 ($48 after discount)

Far Cry 4 PS4: $59.49 ($48 after discount)

Yoshi's Woolly World: $50.99 ($41 after discount)

 

I'm assuming the discount will be applied when you are charged for the item, so when it ships.

I just called to make sure.  The discount is applied and they section it off. even though right now on the invoice the remaining two items will cost more, apparently it will not exceed the 111.xx total I should be getting in the end. >_> and damn they're frustrating to talk with.

I wonder if I will get a price reduction for Last of Us PS4 because of the recent decrease. I think Amazon has that guarantee where if the price drops and you pre-ordered it, the new price will be applied. I just hope the promotion will still apply as well.

Yes it should, my order started at $151 but now it's at $143, I didn't have TLoU but they clearly adjusted the price when i'm assuming one of the games dropped in price

Here's my order

 

on day one of the deal, i called because the cart wasn't taking off 30%, i was told on the phone that the marketing team was working on it and it would be best to wait a few hours an place my order when it was fixed. the next day they clarified what that it was 30% off MSRP and not off the already lowered amazon prices. but destiny had gone up by $10 over night. so i talked to a manager and he put a $10 credit on my account that could ONLY be used for Destiny on X1. i made my order and a few days later the price of destiny went back down by $9, but i got to keep the $10 discount. that's why there's an additional $10 discount on my bill. I also managed to get Rainbow 6 Siege, it was only on their site for a few hours, and it was cheap!

Hate to bump such an old thread, but for those who preordered Last of Us on PS4 during the sale, the price has dropped to $51.99 on Amazon.ca, make sure to ask a CSR to modify your order. Mine was modified automatically, but I had to ask a CSR to change it from $59.99 to $54.99 last time.

You can also try to sign up for Prime for free so you can get 2-day shipping to get your orders faster.

If you are not a student anymore, still try using your old student or alumni email.

 

After signing up, ask CSR to change the shipping method.

Just had my NHL 15 Ultimate Edition pre-order canceled. Appears they had two listings and the one I pre-ordered was removed. 10 minutes on support and the problem was resolved, thankfully.
