Gears of War 3 has been given a $20 credit promotion when you pre-order from Amazon.com. This new promotional credit offer has rocketed Gears of War 3 to the top of pre-order charts.
That's a great deal.
Gears 3 has had the $20 credit on Amazon forever
Yeah. I pre-ordered it about 2 months ago when I first saw this $20 credit, thinking it would be for a limited time.
If i pre-ordered prior to the $20 credit offer, would I still get it? I think I do but i'm not positive. Anyone know?
Well, I've had that happen with me on LA Noire. It was only $10 at the time, then it got raised to $15. Wound up getting $20 credit because not only did they give me the full $15, but they mistakenly assumed that I only received $10 from the prior promotion. Amazon's fine print had said that their promotional offer "extends to all existing preorders" for LA Noire, but I don't see that for Gears 3. As a precaution, you can cancel the preorder, and just preorder again I would think.
I wish they had it for the Gears 3 Console bundle as well :( After all, if you spend more or choose the more expensive version, I believe you should get equal or more promotional value.
Wouldn't be surprised if Gears 3 reaches the 2 million pre order mark before it's release. Great deal!
Already pre-ordered mine. (:
On topic: this is why I love Amazon. $20 credits. Off topic: I love your pic. Best game ever.
It has been the number one selling pre-order for some time now I believe. Either way, I have my Gears of War 360 edition pre-ordered. Going into my kids game room.
This is a sweet deal. I've reserved this a while back. I wonder why there is no deal on the collectors edition though.
or the console bundle
It's not a discount. You just get a 20.00 credit towards your next purchase. Your still paying 60 for the game. And I thought we don't approve blogs here?
I need Epic Edition of this Baby. The Gears 3 Console looks awesome. But I already have the Slim.
$44.99 on newegg with a promo code EMCKBKF86 and free shipping as always.
Brilliant move by Microsoft to delay this game from spring to fall, from a business standpoint. As a fan, at least we had an awesome beta to hold us over.
Better yet, more polish for the game!
Good deal but it would be even better if it was a 20 credit towards your next amazon purchase instead of it having to be used on your next video game order only.
I'll be using my $20 credit to get Skyrim for $40.
I do mad shopping through amazon but rarely for games because their free shipping is usually slow to my location. I would definitely jump on this deal if I could use the $20 credit for anything though. I opted for the newegg deal instead. $15 right off the top with free shipping and I only live 50 miles from their main distributor so I usually get my order the next day, two days tops. Either way, both are great deals. This is definitely the way to go for this time of the year when there are so many games and only so many dollars / budget constraints. This way you can get more bang for your buck and a chance to play a wider selection of games.
@Brutallyhonest Back when I pre-ordered Portal 2, I used the 20 dollar credit for something other than a game, it was a mouse I believe or some cables or something, I'm not sure what, but I know for a fact it wasn't a game. Oh yeah, now I remember, it was for a computer case. I think you CAN use the credit on things other than games.
Gears 3 has had the $20 credit for a very long time now. It's probably at the top of the charts because its launch date is very close now.
Shame the UK doesn't have such a great discount. I've preordered it though. Ho hum.
I did find it interesting that the $20 credit was only on the regular edition... I elected to pass on the tin box version for that reason. I guess down the road I can try and pick it up on the cheap if I still want it.
already pre ordered. the 20 dollar credit will be going to BF3!
Sweet deal,already pre-ordered though...along with Resistance 3,Batman Arkham City and Uncharted 3.The coming months is gonna be densely packed with awesome games.
For a highly anticipated and critically received game like GoW, for it to get a 20$ discount it would be a no-brainer for it to top the charts. I'm not bringing a dog to a fight here (for any accusations of Fanboyism) but if uncharted did the same it would top the charts on that respective day.
It's not a $20 discount of Gears. You buy Gears for $60 and you get $20 off future games
oh sorry my bad, thought it was a pre-order discount on the game itself, thanks for the heads up.
Well the title makes it seem that way. Title says $20 discount. But it's a $20 credit.
For the second time today ... this is news? It's been discounted on amazon for like 6 months or more.
I use an indie store always get games 1 or 2days early and always for £35
