I preordered this game along with a cosmos black 3ds and I'm wondering if people who preordered this game will receive the credit. I know they had this same promotion with the Pokemon games. I may end up sending a email to Amazon to inquiry about this but what do you guys think?
I sent an email a few days ago and they said that if you do preorder, you will get any promotions along with your order. But now, it looks like they changed the promotion from just $10 off your next order to $10 off another 3DS game purchase... :P
If this means we only get the credit if we buy two games at launch, then that is just total crap. The launch games for the 3DS aren't very good anyway, and Street Fighter was only worth it with the $10 credit.
You don't have to buy a second game, you just get the credit to buy a second game. Depending on how long until the credit expires, you could wait until a 3DS game you like is released and use it to purchase that game. You also get $25 of credit towards a future 3DS game by purchasing the 3DS system itself. Sounds great to me.
But seriously... I'm sure that Ocarina of Time and Kid Icarus will be available for pre-order right after E3 in the first week of June, so if you want to wait for those, you should be a-ok if you put that pre-order in before the 30th, even if the game ships after that date.
Actually I think the promotion says you have to use the $10 credit and the $25 credit from preordering a 3DS system on one of the launch games. They link a list of games and at the top of the page, it says "Pre-order a qualifying Nintendo 3DS game from the list below and receive a $10 promotional credit redeemable toward the purchase of a second game from the same list."
