In for BB with GCU and $10 cert. The best looking bundle seems to be Target's with the Journal, no wonder it's sold out. The game not coming with the console bundle is classic Nintendo. Shouldve at least sold it bundled wit the game for $330 or something.

Ah man  thats so stupid. If the guide released the same day as the game I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Why would I need it a month afterwards lol. 

 

I wish gamestop had a better preorder bonus. Anyone know if buying via Walmart online and picking up in store will get you the bonus? I'm getting 2 copies so I might try one there.

 

I've got the console on preorder but I've been spending mad money. I'm still undecided on if I'll be picking it up or not. Case too. In for a penny in for a pound yeah? 

 

I bitched on reddit and SD about the game not being bundled and everyone acted like I was an absolute entitled monster for being disappointed. I thought most 3DS special editions and PS4 special editions at least included a digital copy of the game, but everyone yelled at me a lot.

PS4 yes most of the bundles like Death Stranding include the game. 3DS most no unless they costed a bit more usually. Switch also no.

I see no indication at all on Best Buy's site that the bell bag bundle also gets the $10 in rewards credit. Where are you seeing that?

It’s not really a bundle. You add both to your cart separate and buy them separately.

I've been wondering if Targets will have any journals available the day of launch, but I dont know how launch day/preorder items usually work.

SD is a haven for fanboys, and not just of games - like, coffee machines and shit lmao. Then thrown into the mix oare mods and rogue agents defending their product. SD has become less of an informative app and over years has become more of a glorified advertisement for sales in which they get money for clicks. It's in their best interest to have every single thread speaking positively about products and deals. It's hard to tell if a user's post is from an idiot, a troll, a blind fanboy,  an SD mod, or a representative of a product.

Thanks for posting. Super helpful list and I didn’t realize they were doing a bundle w/ the Bell bag for a lot less than getting them separate (at Best Buy). Changed my pre-order.

Guide reduced to 19 and change on Amazon. I bit because I guess I'll use it for later events and a fishing guide.

Thanks for mentioning - looks like the price went down to $17.99 (unless you were quoting that price with tax already).

I haven't bought a guide at release in years, though I'm leaning to buying the guide for this at the current price ($17.99).

Nice! Amazon will hopefully reduce it to match.

No I think he paid $19.xx on Amazon and it since went lower. If that's the case then they would match their own price under the "price match guarantee".

Bell "Bag" is almost a stretch, when it's only like 5" x 6" in size.  I'm afraid that my Tom Nook plush will steal it away from me while I'm sleeping.

Seems to be going in and out of stock at Walmart. I had to try two or three times to check out, but I got it working in the end.

I missed that GameStop is offering $10 rewards with purchase by 3/26.

GameStop announced they are canceling a midnight release due to COV-19 concerns.

Best Buy is being classified as an "essential" retailer since the sell items like monitors, chargers, etc. that are needed to work from home. Therefore they *should* be open for Animal Crossing release this Friday. Store hours may be different however.

Do those $10 promos usually apply for Digital orders as well? Definitely a game I'd prefer to have digitally, and if I could just grab it off the site and get the rewards I'd likely just do that.

I pre-ordered a physical copy on Amazon, but was wondering if it would be possible to change to a digital code instead WITHOUT canceling and re-ordering. I used a promo credit on this for $15 off (it would be expired by now) and don't know what'll happen to it if I cancel the order.

Looks like digital is included: https://www.gamestop...ons/212535.html

You get a code right away and you can preload the game too.

Just to let people know, the Journal that comes as a bonus at Target rings up for 1 cent. That’s right I said 1 cent. This happens a lot at Target with bonus items. The Yoshi magnets and Pokémon key chains also were only 1 cent. Just being able to get an employee to sell you one separately would be the problem.

Couldn't you go to self check out?

In my experience, they keep the pre order bonuses behind the counter and hand them out as they sell the game.
