I noticed this too, but after going through checkout I noticed that with tax it comes to about $48.50 and even though standard shipping is free it will still take a couple of days. To top it all off you don't get any pre order bonus. If Amazon could just add $10 dollar credit or something they would have the better deal.
On the page for KoA scroll down to where it tells the "Amazon Bestsellers Rank" for it under that is a "Tell us about a lower price" button click that and select "Website" then for the details enter URL: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12559244 - PS3 Price: 44.99 Shipping Cost: 0.00 Date Of The Price: Just leave this like it is and submit
Do the same thing for the newegg deal except use this link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16879200825
Spam the reports and they might actually price match although amazon hasn't really seemed to care lately as Mia said
@Trey - yeah, already did that earlier today. Now just playing the waiting game... Like Mia said, they've dropped the ball big time. I remember the week Call of Duty and Skyrim came out, many places had a sale of them. Amazon waited a week to have them on sale.
Me:Hello I am curious to see if you have any plans to price-match toysrus and newegg on the game coming out February 7th Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning they are selling preorders of the game for $44.99 Taylor:Hello, Trey, and thanks for chatting with Amazon.com! My name is Taylor. Me:Hi taylor Taylor:I'm sorry, unfortunately we don't offer price matching, but it never hurts to keep an eye on the item as it gets closer to the release date, and even after, to see if the price changes. Me:You don't offer price matching? Taylor:No, I'm sorry.
I've pre-ordered it from NewEgg in the morning today. Just sent Amazon the links to both ToysRUs and NewEgg. Hopefully Amazon will match the price. With the extra DLC being offered, I won't mind paying the tax fee which was excluded in NewEgg.
Not true. A day after I linked walmart deal for Grand Slam Tennis 2 they matched the deal. They price matched Batman Arkham City on cyber monday and charged me a lower price on LA Noire a couple days after release even when I preordered it. In this case Amazon has made exclusive deal for preorder bonus item, along with other preorder bonus items most companies are not giving. I understand why there not price matching, that doesn't mean i'm happy with it.
Newegg is a solid company. Never had trouble with them, and people rate their service very highly. I used to order PC parts back when I was a PC gamer, and never had any trouble. This'll be my 2nd game from them.. the last one I ordered actually came 1 day earlier than promised. Can't beat that!
I changed my order to Newegg when they had some coupon. Will this combine with the new lower price and wth happen to my order? I have the email saying I pre order but no where on newegg says I pre ordered it.
