Well K-Mart was a MASSIVE pain in my ass when I used this deal to get Mario Kart 8, on the other hand I ended up getting the game extremely cheap. Then again, K-Mart seems incapable of shipping on time. Ugh, decisions....
I suppose this is worth another shot, based solely on the assistance I EVENTUALLY got from customer service, but I urge everyone out there who just HAS to have this on day one to have a backup plan in place, and review the K-Mart MK8/WatchDogs thread to see exactly what you are getting into.
Order doesn't get charged until it ships. Points aren't available until the order is shipped. Don't use any SYWR points that expire before the game ships (like Surprise points) or it'll get cancelled. It might anyway, my order still got cancelled because it wouldn't take my credit card for some reason, but at least the customer service people are nice and eventually got it sorted out.
I used 0 points on my order and it was still cancelled. I think practically everyone who was getting over $20 back in points had theirs cancelled.
Uh...have you checked to see if those MK8 points are still available to use? I ended up getting one (with the $10 back in points--not as good as ~$30 back, but whatever) because I had points to use and could get the free game, but the points were set to expire 6/14 or so. I ended up using them on two $5 clearance games that I traded to Best Buy during the 50% bonus for $15 total.
That was a separate promo. The pre-order points were supposed to be good for a full year. The points you get for physically buying that game the day of release expired within two weeks, which was stated by the ad.
