I think they canceled the shift promotion entirely. So probably only eligible for the $20. That is just my guess. If you want, you can contact amazon they can give you an answer. But the promotion does say "Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time." So I'm thinking they "terminated" the shift one and replaced it with this one.
You should try calling Amazon Customer Support to find out for sure. The fine print of the Shift promotion said, "Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time," so they can do as they like. But I've noticed that when Amazon pulls a promotion, they still extend the promotion to the people who ordered prior to them killing it.
My Game will only be $39 because of the $20 promotional credit from my Call of Duty: Black Ops pre-order. Target will be selling NFS: Hot Pursuit for Xbox 360 and PS3 for $35 on Black Friday. I am sure they will only have a limited amount of these games in. Just copy and paste the link then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see what I am talking about.
All EA sports games (including NFS Hot Pursuit) will be $34.99 in Bestbuy this coming Black Friday so I am pretty sure Amazon, like last year (2009), will match that pricing. So all of you wait another week and you'll save more.
It will also be $35 at Target on BF and part of the B1G1 for $5 at TRU. But that means you have to physically go to the store. On Black Friday. And assume they still have some in stock. I'll just pay $40 and get it delivered to my door Tuesday.
Yes, you can use the credit for Xbox Live cards. I just used a credit that I got on COD Black Ops to order a 12 month card to renew my subscription.
Also, release date delivery games don't usually start processing until the day before the game's release so Monday is when you will see your order being processed. It usually ships around 7:00 pm (which I believe is the final pick-up time for FedEx).
You don't need to go to the store because what I said is that Amazon, just like last year, will sell most EA games (Sports) for $34.99 too. No need to go to any store, NO TAX AND NO GAS expenses needed. OK? Geez
Amazon ships RDD games mostly via UPS NEXT DAY AIR SAVER so it won't ship out until Monday. I usually receive the promotional credit that same night or early morning the next day. So no need to worry. Enjoy the game
With the exception of TV's, Amazon does not price match. That said, customer service did price match my Xbox 360 purchase when the price dropped $30. CS rep said it had to be over $20 and they would do it. Its worth calling customer support to ask, all they can do is say no.
Thanks for the link. All someone has to do is re-order the item when the price is $35 and return it with the $60 receipt. Although they would probably remove the promo credit from your account or if you already used it, only refund you the difference. Still, doesn't hurt to send an email on BF...
Amazon is pretty decent with customer service. I recently opened a DVD box set that I bought 2 years ago and found it was missing a disc. Amazon still issued me a refund, and didn't even want the item returned. I subsequently used those discs with the DVD2Blu program offered by Warner Bros.
If I were to pre-order can the $20 credit be used towards a game console? Wanting to get my son the xbox 360 for Christmas and if it would work that way I could go ahead and order the game now and then use the credit towards the system.
On Black Friday Toys R Us will be selling the 250GB Xbox 360 for $299 with a $50 gift card and Xbox 360 games buy one get the second for $5. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/6006466/black_friday_2010_deals_come_early.html
