they will probably give us one later on i may be wrong did black ops come with a 20 dollar credit cause im pretty sure it did i love those effects like i got MOH for 60 then BO for $40 Its now Dark Souls 60 BF3 40 then MW3 40 then i may go for Uncharted 3
They'll probably give a $20 credit, but not yet. Battlefield 3 has an earlier release date so it makes sense that they get it first. What I don't understand is why they don't offer it sooner. Offering $20 is not an easy thing that they suddenly decided yesterday just because they felt like giving, since for every customer, they're giving up $20 (although you can make a point that it'll force the customer come back to Amazon to shop later with that credit, creating more revenue.) I'm sure they had it planned a while back, and if they had announced it earlier, those who ordered it at GameStop and BestBuy might have been too tempted by the $20 credit and changed their mind. Now, many of those people won't bother to keep checking for better pre-order deals, so they'll keep their money at other stores. I'm sure Amazon has reasons, but from a customer's perspective, it doesn't make sense to offer it this late especially when this credit applies to everyone who already pre-ordered it too so it's not like they're squeezing out a few more pre-orders without having to add the bonuses to already existing pre-orders.
LOL, the BF3 credit was huge, huge mistake. A truly Epic Fail. Someone had the bright idea of putting a pre-order credit as a limited time gold box deal! You just can't do that, they should have dropped $20 off of Gears of War 3 which had already come out, but nope, they offered BF3 with a $20 pre-order credit for a 4 hour window. About 300 complaints later from everyone who missed it, they extended the credit to EVERYONE WHO HAD PREORDERED. I have to say, kudos to Amazon for taking the hit on that one. Excellent managerial response to keep customers loyal. Even people who have no idea. Double thumbs up! Now if we can just convince them to increase the credit for MW3 I'd pre-order it in a second.
@AngrySanta Wow! I was unaware that they only offered the $20 for BF3 in a short window period. I was lucky enough to sign on a few days ago to see it on the product page ;) I believe that Amazon will offer a credit for MW3 because they were fairly late to offer it for BF3, but ya never know considering they are already offering a credit toward that headset that many could care less for.
If they add $20 I would consider cancelling my Newegg pre-order as well. I would use it towards my pre-order of NFS: The Run here on Amazon. Right now I'll stick with my Newegg pre-order and 3 day wait.
amazon has lost a ton of preorders to newegg and kmart the past couple months. newegg basically offers all preorders for $48 (no credit involved). and kmart has been great with credit and promotions, basically $20+ credit for preorders. amazon has been getting most of my preorders and normal video game purchases the past couple years, but it looks like newegg/kmart has better options these days.
Newegg ran a 2 day special a couple weeks back for $12 off MW3 with the promo code in their newsletter. Not too long ago they did the same for UC3 but it wasn't in an email. The only reason I found out about was looking at the UC3 forum on here.
i doubt that what santa says is true. Amazon wouldn't do a gold box deal for the $20 credit, it's stated when anyone pre-orders they get the pre-order price guarantee, so no matter what everyone who already pre-ordered would have gotten it anyways. It's never a bad decision for aamzon, pulls a bunch more orders for them. Amazon has been doing credit like this for a while, I'm sure they know what they're up to.
They really should add the credit to MW3 right away though, with a weak incentive like that, they already lost so many customers. I have a preorder for Amazon and Newegg, I plan to cancel Amazon's preorder if they don't give the credit, then I'll just stick with my $51.47 Newegg pre-order (even though not release date delivery). I'm in no rush though, will just give me 3 more days to play BF3
