Got $10 credit from Amazon for getting ODST but it has to be used in the next 10 days.

Does anyone know if it counts to spend it on a game that wont ship till November or does it have to be used on something that will ship before it expires?

You can use it for pre-orders which won't come out until after it expires, as long as you place the order before it expires.

Best Buy has a few games marked down 50 percent off. Most are crappy kid games but i did find Fifa Street 3. It said $20 but rung up as $15. With the half off I ended up only paying $7.49

Guitar Hero 5 is $29 on Amazon right now. 360 version only.

With double ECA, I bit($25+Prime). I'm a weak, weak man.

If you still have some of the old ECA codes(pre - 9/30) they stack with the new codes for 20% off.

Wait. So can I cancel my pre-orders, use that same code and stack a new one on top for 20%?

If you made your pre-orders with the old codes, yes that will work. I cancelled two (Fallout & Lego Rock Band) and reordered to stack them.

Yep, seems that way. I'm gonna cancel my Lego Rock Band order and re-order it now. I'm also contemplating adding Brutal Legend and Dragon Age since they are both $56.99 and come with $10 off coupons.


$114 for Lego Rock Band, Dragon Age Origins and 2 1600 MS Point cards. Plus $10 coupon for buying Dragon Age... not too shabby!

It is a universal price drop. Should be $19.99 everywhere shortly, including your favorite local B&M retailer. Amazon probably has the platinum hits version.

$19.99 with free shipping at Newegg

You didn't mention triple stacking!

Looks like Amazon and ECA are putting a stop to the stacking. ECA is currently not offering any more Amazon codes according to CAG. Though I believe they will be brought back once they figure out how to stop stacks.

weak. It was a nice bonus to those that actually paid for a membership since the free memberships came along after the last batch of codes. I was waiting for New Super Mario Bros. Wii to hit my Gold Box but I guess now is time to pull the trigger before they figure this out.

*edit* Still works, got in on NSMB Wii ($39) and Dead Rising 2($48).

And just an FYI, you can preorder Metroid Other M and Super Mario Galaxy 2. I just placed an order for those two plus Bioshock 2 and NSMB all with the 20% discount. If you decide you don't want it later, you can cancel. Basically I've just pre-ordered just about everything I can think of by stacking these ECA coupons. Since I'd placed a number of different orders I had plenty of these codes in my account when I consolidated.

Now all I have to do is keep track of the preorders and published reviews so I know when I start needing to decide which ones I'm going to keep. The list is ridiculous.

edit with list:

PS3
Bioshock 2
Dragon Age
Assassin's Creed 2
Lego Rock Band
God of War Collection
Star Wars Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition
Uncharted 2
Gran Turismo 5

Wii
New Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Galaxy
Metroid Other M

I'm just not close enough to a TRU to make that deal more worthwhile than double-stacking ECA coupons with Amazon Prime. Especially considering I'd have to return and worry about exchanging games and all that nonsense. Plus I've got some $10 Amazon pre-order credits stuck in there and more on the way with this batch.
