Shipping varies. I've had games arrive between the day after release and the Saturday of release week.

I have a question regarding usage of these Dell promo gift cards.  Can you use it to pre-order a game of which has a release date that is after the card "expires"?  For instance, Splatoon comes out May 31 and my card from Majora's Mask 3DS expires May 20.  Can I pre-order Splatoon before the card expires and have it count towards it, even though they aren't supposed to "charge" anything till release?  I have a backup plan in case I don't want to chance it, but I was wondering if anyone here had experience with a situation like this.  Also wondering what happens in the case a game that is preordered is delayed, as I'm sure this would mess a bunch of people up if they didn't count the card towards a preorder that got its release date changed.

Yes, I can confirm this works. I ordered GTA 5 for PC back in September with a couple of these promo gift cards and it just shipped. Those gift cards are now VERY expired!

Has anyone had their MKX ship? I got in on the $25 promo w/ free overnight shipping but the website says estimated arrival date 4/17.  I can't cancel the order either apparently (not online anyway).

Mine says estimated delivery date 4/20 but I have next day business shipping so I talked to someone on dell online chat and he said that the game should ship tomorrow and I will receive it on Wednesday since I have next day shipping hope thats the case

yeah and Im hoping that the online chat guy was correct because you know how it is, they tell you one thing and another thing ends up happening. Got the game for 29 bucks shipped (Hope it comes with the Goro pre order anyway to find that out?) got Majora Mask 3DS on release day through Best Buy, but when I pre ordered Bloodborne I got it four days later so will see what happens tomorrow

Yeah I know all to well how that goes.  I read somewhere when I did my research on preordering from Dell and from what I recall all preorders should come with the Goro DLC so we should be OK.

I will keep you posted on when mine ships. I was hoping for today(Like it did with Majora Mask) but I guess that is not the case with this game, it will most likely ship tomorrow and I will receive it on Wednesday) I cant wait to play it. Ive gotten many games but this one Im actually looking forward to play it the second I receive it..and hope we get Goro too :-)

I've never received a preorder bonus from dell and I've ordered many games that had bonuses elsewhere. For example I never got the free monster for preordering evolve, and that was a bonus for all retailers.

Maybe it depends on the platform? I pre-ordered Evolve for PC from Dell. The key must have been flagged in Steam's system as a pre-order because it unlocked the Behemoth monster too. Perhaps Xbox One & PS4 required retailers to provide the bonus unlock codes separately? Through email / on the receipt? My copy of Evolve also had a yellow triangle sticker on it. I kinda thought that might be how they differentiated it from a non pre-order copy.

Yeah, preorder bonuses for console games are normally on the receipt/sent via email from other retailers. They never sent me any emails for bonuses. Maybe you have to call/email them about it? Talking to dell cs is not something I want to do lol

There's has never been mention of preorder bonuses on the item pages though, which is why i never bothered asking about them, since I had no leg to stand on.

I chatted with the online folks and they said mine should ship 4/16, gave me some stuff about first come, first serve and all this other garbage which doesn't make sense in this situation but you know how Dell "CS" is.

 

No shipment info as of 3:00pm EST either.

 

Let me also add that on other PC items I have purchased from them lately I usually get notification from the carrier that an item is on the way prior to their website updating as "shipped" with tracking info.  There is some hope that it is actually shipped just not updated on their awesome site.

Mine has stayed like this:

 

Order summary Item: Mortal Kombat X - Xbox One

Status: In production

Delivery Date 4/20/2015

Talking to online chat is pretty much a waste of time I Think I will actually call them later. Two people have told me the game will ship today and that I should get it in the next business day but now, who knows..even though I saved a lot of money by buying this game from Dell who knows if the hassle was really worth saving the few extra bucks

I guess the GORO DLC will come on the box in the form of a sticker? I saw on xbox.com that they are selling Goro for 4.99 but we should be getting it included since we pre ordered it? If you get yours first let me know if it comes with it, I got the XBOX ONE version
