Ditto on the Canadian site, although it doesn't say anything about DOTD.

I ordered it too. I just couldn't pass that price up. I will just sell my current "limited" edition when it comes in. I have seen the helmet out at Best Buy and it just looks too cool to pass up.

I got this reply from amazon when I emailed them about getting the difference refunded.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for writing back to us at Amazon.com.

I've reviewed our previous correspondence and your order.

I sympathize with your frustration. However, please understand that
the information provided in our last message correctly represents our
policy at this time.

As my colleague previously mentioned, in order to take advantage of
this promotion, you must place a qualifying order during the specified
promotion period, while supplies last.

After researching, I see that this price of $59.99 s being offered in
a promotional offer, therefore, it does not qualify for the 30 day
price guarantee.

Also, we are unable to apply special discounts to items ordered before or
after the dates of this promotional offer. Again, I am sorry if this
causes you any inconvenience.

We appreciate the time you've taken to share your feedback with us.
It's always important for us to hear how customers feel about all
aspects of shopping at Amazon.com. Strong customer feedback like
yours helps us continue to improve our store and the service we provide.

Thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you again at Amazon.com.

*snip*
Sounds right.

It was a special promotional deal for limited quantities and not a price drop or *sale* price.

After the special promotional deal expired it went from sold out to back in stock at the regular $129.99 price.


Yep, it sucks... but what can you do.

You might want to try a couple more times just to be sure. It took me 3 emails and a phone call (it was the third email that worked) to get the $10 promotion refunded off an earlier Cars/Ratatouille order.

Tell them that you could have placed a new order, but felt it would have been easier for them to honor their price-matching rather than you refusing shipment of the earlier order.

It took me a couple of emails to get the price adjusted for my Friday order as well.

Definitely send another email.

I ordered 5 at $79.99 on black friday.

I then saw that they were $59.99.

I contacted amazon and said that I had not yet received my shipped order but when it arrived, that I could not open them and return them to sender at there expense, and then submit another order again with free shipping. Or be given the price adjustment which would make things easier for everybody.

I then received a $100 credit

Got mine today and it is sweet. There was something rattleing around in the helmet, but I couldn't find anything wrong with it.

After another email to Amazon I got this reply. They didn't respond to a single statement that I said.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Greetings from Amazon.com.

I understand your concern regarding your order and want to assure you that we are here to help.

However, after researching our website for the item "Halo 3 Legendary Edition", I have confirmed with the concerned department, and they have informed me that the price has not dropped on Amazon.com item.

Please click the link below to see the price on the web page.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000K8ZTK8

I am sorry for the misunderstanding while searching on the website, the price you are referring to is offered by one of our merchants.

Please note that Amazon.com does not have a price matching policy, we cannot match the price offered by another seller on our web site.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this situation may have caused and would like to thank you for your understanding and patience.

Got mine in today via UPS. Super fast shipping since they said that they had just shipped it the other day.

Man that helmet is cool. My 3 year old son starting chanting "Halo! Halo! Halo!" as I took it out of the box.

Only disappointment is that the discs came in two keepcases and not in the Limited Edition Tin which looks good displayed next to Halo2's Limited Edition.

The Halo3 LE also came with a cool little bio book that the Legendary Edition does not have which is odd.

I might just have to get blank dvd disc and just give the game disc & essentials disc to my brother-in-law and keep the LE tin and booklet. I am not usually such a packaging whore but looking at it all together, it would be hard to break it all up.
