kinda tempting but their shipping charges seem a bit high especially with sites like Amazon doing release date delivery on the big games for $1 or free if you are Prime.

Free shipping is high? Even if you go with faster shipping you still get $30 worth of stuff for free.

3-7 business days isn't exactly earth shaking fast when compared to Amazon's shipping. Yes you are getting $10 store credit and $20 XBLA pts but if you want that game day 1 you are out of luck and if you pay $17 you can get it next day shipped.

I am not saying its a bad deal but there are trade offs to be made. I wish they had an instore pick up option being that I live very close to one of their stores.

Edit: I still may just take a flyer on one of these titles to see how well they do with shipping, etc... The offer as I said..tempting. :)

Amazon does not have 99c release day shipping anymore :[

They do have same day release for certain titles that are big enough.

Just looked up Black Ops on Amazon (I am a Prime Member):
Choose your shipping speed:
FREE Standard Shipping (3-5 business days)
FREE Two-Day Shipping --get it on its release day: Tuesday, November 13.

Glad to see Microsoft is competing when it comes to buying games online. I pre-ordered Halo 4 from them and got a $20 credit for my next purchase. These are great deals!
