Super Mario Sunshine Preorder Deals

I got an ad from Toys "R" Us today that says...

Hurry in today to "R" Zone to reserve your copy of Super Mario Sunshine and get a "Free" beach towel. (While supplies last. Offer not available online.)
I'm not sure why Free is in quotations. Not a great deal but something is better than nothing.

Anyone hear of any other preoder deals? I figure since there's one deal there's gotta be several others.

I'm seriously thinking on getting in on that Nintendo 70 dollar deal...
Does anyone know what kind of beach towel they'll be giving away at Toys R Us? A Mario one perhaps?

If it's just a real lame white one, that'd be stupid.

I hope the towel has a gigantic shine star on it. If so, that thing is mine.

Unfortunately the TRU ad doesn't have a picture of the towel.

That Nintendo deal is a good one. My only problem is...

Shipments of the Super Mario Sunshine Bundle Paks will start on August 26, 2002 via 2-day air and may take 3 to 4 days for delivery.
Best Buy says they will have the game out on August 26th and TRU says they'll have it out on the 28th. I don't think I could bear to wait an extra second longer than I had to to own this game.

Ok, I went by TRU today to check out the towel.
They had one hanging up, and it looked pretty good.

It was a fairly large towel, and had "Super Mario Sunshine" on it (logo was about 3'X 1.5' or so). Then under that and to the right it says "Nintendo Gamecube".
I don't know...worth 5 bucks to me definitely, but I'm thinking other places may have better deals posted once Aug 26th comes around.

I'm going for the Nintendo deal. I can survive a few extra days without the game and its a good excuse for me to get a Wavebird finally. You just can't beat a package like that for $70 and that's with shipping included.

Thanks for the description Zodo. I'm surprised they had the towel out already. Do know if you get the towel when you preorder or when you get the game?

I picked up the towel today. I get all my games from TRU as I have a TRU Visa and I get them for free (lots of company expenses on the card). It's actually a much nicer quality towel than I expected, only complaint is Mario isn't on it.

The reason I didn't want to go ahead and order from TRU is b/c I'm afraid that another store will have a better deal.

Does anyone know if you'd be able to cancel the SMS pre-order at a later date, if you find that say Best Buy has a much better deal?

Does Costco accept manufacturers coupons?

They're selling the WaveBird for $24.99. With the coupon, that'd be a fantastic price!!

My son has been saving up for a game for the GCN, so I told him that I would pay the difference of what he's saved, and get the Nintendo deal... so that I can get another WaveBird and he can get the Magazine and his own memory card... he erased mine the other day... needless to say I was a little ticked...

... but what can I do he's only 4!

(... oh yeah... and he had around $40 in birthday money, so I'm just cough the dough up for the perks..., ain't I a nice dad!)

No, you read it wrong.

Trade in two games and get Mario Sunshine FREE. (GTA Vice is $15)

Great deal in my opinion.

I just called my local EB. Unfortunately Super Monkey Ball isn't acceptable for their "Trade-in 2, Get Mario Free" deal. Hopefully I can find a cheap game at BB or CC today.
