Walmart.com Selling Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3 & Black Ops 2 DLC Dirt Cheap

File this under N for "No idea why", but Walmart has begun accepting preorders for just the bonuses you receive when you preorder games like Assassin's Creed 3, Black Ops 2 and more for a mere thirty five cents. Included with your preorder of a preorder is a preorder bonus as well. Yeah, it gets confusing. (Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, PS3, Xbox 360)

Update It appears the deal has died for most people. You can still try to order, but odds are it is done.

Not kidding - this actually worked. Thanks for the heads-up man. Wal-Mart just sent the confirmation e-mail, and it's a good day.

Is Wii U not going to have DLC for AC3 or BO2? I preordered Black Ops 2 for the Wii U for $50. I'd prefer the DLC there lol
Skate-AK  +   734d ago
I'm sure there will be. Although WiiU BO2 DLC will be a month behind 360.
t0mmyb0y  +   733d ago
I was just wondering why they don't have the deal for that system. Hmmm.
TrendyGamers  +   734d ago
That's really weird.
FarCryLover182  +   733d ago
I think these are meant to just come out with the games themselves...aka pre order bonus and $5 movie credit. This must be an accident.
ScytheX3  +   734d ago
for a second lol thought it was the game being sold somehow for $0.35 lol i remember some time back think steam or origin had an issue where nearly the entire store had games free or for ridiculously cheap.
Dropdeadll  +   734d ago
I think it just gives you movie credits.. there isn't any details with what it contains.
strangelove  +   734d ago
On the order page it says you're buying the DLC and the $5 credit. Also when you redeem the credit it says you'll receive your DLC after the game releases.
Dropdeadll  +   734d ago
Thanks, you're right.
barb_wire  +   734d ago
The details are in that green semi-circle bottom right.. for example for AC III, you get $4.99 vudu movie credit and exclusive mission 'A Dangerous Secret'
jagstatboy  +   734d ago
whoever disagreed obviously didn't do this. I did the AC3 and BLOPS 2 ones and just received the code to get 2 Vudu movies for free. So I paid .75 cents for $10 worth of Vudu rentals. Nice.
FredEffinChopin  +   733d ago
I don't know, I placed an order and haven't seen any codes yet... No big loss if it doesn't work out, but it will be kind of a letdown.

Before you do this, remember that Walmart.com has the absolute WORST customer service you will ever deal with. So if you do this and they over charge you, or you want your 35 cents back, good luck.

I've spent nearly 3 months now trying to get my money back for them charging me twice for one game. I pre-ordered it and had it sent to the store, the store never got the order, charged me again to get the game, and walmart.com never sent the order anywhere but still charged my card when the game released.....Their number is a pain to find, and when you call its a bunch of foreign people....

And somehow they are planning to compete with Amazon? Yeah right. Amazon is king of customer service.
ScytheX3  +   734d ago
well wouldnt say king of customer service lol, they dont even have a phone number to see its all email, to call them i had to google search their number but yes, good customer service but obviously they prefer you to email and not call.
Soldierone  +   734d ago
On their site they have a "call me" button, you put in a time and they will call you when they are available. They also have chat options that are extremely helpful

Besides that, if you do email them, at least they reply. Ive sent Walmart.com 5 emails, only two were replied to and they were auto generated garbage....Even the store it was supposed to be sent to couldn't get any customer service from the site, it was ridiculous.
lex-1020  +   733d ago
I think I'll be ok without 35 cents if this goes sour.
azshorty2003  +   733d ago
While Walmart's service sucks, paying with Paypal will help give you some kind of protection, not to mention a secondary place to dispute payment should things get messed up.
s8anicslayer  +   734d ago
thanks for the head up, order placed waiting for the credits
Epic-timmeh  +   734d ago
So... 35 cents gets the dlc code... Good deal
typikal82  +   734d ago
damn right, even if not you still profit $4.65 in VUDU bucks
Adva  +   734d ago
Lets see if this works in Canada
nrvalleytime  +   734d ago
Does anything work in Canada?
youndamie  +   733d ago

jagstatboy  +   734d ago
The Medal of Honor Warfighter the author of the article has linked both take you to the Xbox360 version. Can't find the PS3 one in walmart's search.
strangelove  +   734d ago
Thanks for the heads up. For some reason the PS3 link combined with the Xbox link. Its fixed now.
KidCuDiWINS  +   734d ago
So I'm really confused, but I'm assuming that it's 35 cents for the preorder DLC? That's the only reason why I'm interested in this.
Dropdeadll  +   734d ago
Yeah. First they email you the code for the vudo rental thing then when the preorder dlc is available they'll email you the code.
AO1JMM  +   734d ago
So you only get Vudu movie credit in the BO2 card?

I ordered 2x the Halo DLC myself.

It also comes with nuketown
AO1JMM  +   734d ago
I didn't see that on the picture of the card. That makes alot of sense though. Thanks
MasterD919  +   734d ago
Heads up guys...

AC3 and Black Ops both have DLC that will come in the retail game package. There is a thread at CAG about it...You may not end up getting what you paid for. Although you still get the VUDU credits (which for $0.35 is a steal).

It is a whole big thing. But for now, it seems that the only one that you will actually get the code for is the Halo skin. That one is at least confirmed to come via e-mail after Halo releases.

I suggest looking further into this before you buy any AC3 or BO2 dlc stuff.
KillerPwned  +   734d ago
So am I buying DLC for the selected game or am I preordering the game itself?
nrvalleytime  +   734d ago
You're buying a pre-order bonus for .35 cents. It's confusing, but - depending on the game - you'll get pre-order DLC alongside $5.00 in VUDU credits.

It's a really good deal.
GamerElite  +   734d ago
Ha ha. stupid Wal mart. Thir loss, our gain
GamerElite  +   734d ago
I pre ordered all 6 for $2.10. So you end up getting $30 worth of Vudu movies for $2. Can't beat that . Thanks wal mart

Wait,if i get the assassins creed 3 dlc, which missions do i get, and what are vudu movie credits, do they work in canada.
Nightfallen  +   733d ago
Deadly Secret or something, which is included in Wal-Marts preorder of the game. This is good for when pre-ordering from elsewhere and you want dlc for 35 cents. I'm getting only Mayan dlc from Gamestop so this is great.

Not sure if this works in Canada.

I just ordered 1 of each, .32 for a $5 movie rental is a great deal. But the email I got just leaves me wondering did I just get a game for .32??? Well whatever it is, at least I got a great deal on some movie rentals!! Woot!

**ALSO, ALL OTHER BONUS DOWNLOADS AND/OR CODES WILL BE PACKED IN THE VIDEO GAME YOU RECEIVE AT LAUNCH.**

I dont think it works. For assassins creed, I am really not sure what this is. I purchased the blops 2, AC3 and halo 4 one. The halo 4 email says it is with the skin, and it will be emailed to me. The other emails say it will be packaged with the game. I do not think we are going to get the AC3 ones...i emailed them about it though. This is false advertising
azshorty2003  +   733d ago
Yea the last sentence of **ALSO, ALL OTHER BONUS DOWNLOADS AND/OR CODES WILL BE PACKED IN THE VIDEO GAME YOU RECEIVE AT LAUNCH.** had me wondering. Curious if we'll get any of the DLC.
Abel3D  +   733d ago
Don't think it works anymore. Cant add it to cart in order to checkout. Must've noticed their mistake.
BLAKHOODe  +   733d ago
I ordered 4 of them lastnight. Got the email this morning telling me to goto Zrewards to redeem my bonuses. Did that, then got more emails with the VUDU codes in them. Everything worked! I got about $20 in VUDU credit right now that I paid only $1.48 for after tax.
AzaziL  +   733d ago
Oh what a surprise, my internet now works and the deal is no longer accessible, fml...
FATALVISI0N  +   733d ago
All I know is even if I get nothing paying no more then $3 on a gamble that might get us at the very most a .32 game, and at the very least a $5 rental for .32 or hell eve if we dont get anything and loose $3, that's a gamble I'm I'll take any day! Can you imagine if we come out big on this and get $360 worth of games all for the gamble of only $3. Oh ya baby, I'll play those odds anytime!
FATALVISI0N  +   733d ago
Also, if you look at the image on the BLOPs Card (scroll over the image in the Walmart ad) at the very bottom of the card in very small white letters its says:

"Present this card to pick up your game. *Game release date subject to change"

And why would they be selling Nuketown DLC when it comes free with every pre-order?? It's not like I'm gonna buy BLOPs2 and get the free Nuketown and then buy the free Nuketown DLC for .32

Also I just looked up the game itself at walmart.com, which cost $59.96 the Listing for the game:

"Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Xbox 360) w/ Bonus VUDU Movie Credits (a Wal-Mart Exclusive) and Nuketown 2025 Multiplayer Map"

Sounds pretty familiar!!
