Just checked & yes you are correct ... for the moment ... ECA site says benefit "currently unavailable" & forum postings indicate Amazon working on issue ... but no ETA ... hopefully, should be fixed before release date ... unless, you have some definite info to the contrary.
I just cancelled my old order because I got a $5.00 code in email. However, when readding pre-order of ACII it automatically applied a $10 off. I tried the to apply the $5 code and it isn't accepted. This $5 code came from Ubisoft and is only usable on Amazon. Code is: AMZNACII
Ubisoft email I got tonight err well dated yesterday & $10 auto off is better then $5, but would like to see both work:P
